11 Aug 2017 - While few will pause upon hearing that Yemen was bombed yet again by Saudi Arabia’s U.S. supported war coalition, thus leading to many deaths, the kingdom’s propensity to concentrate its firepower on civilians has become a little hard to stomach.

9 Aug 2017 - We are living amid contradictions whether we like it or not, driving expectations about the future toward opposite extremes. Increasingly plausible are fears that the ‘sixth extinction’ will encompass the human species, or at least, throw human society back to a technology of sticks and stones, with a habitat limited to caves and forests.

26 Jul 2017 - Saudi Arabia, the Gulf kingdom ruled by an absolute monarchy, and key United States ally, is planning to behead 14 men for participating in anti-government protests after what Amnesty international called a “grossly unfair mass trial.” The condemned includes a young student named Mujtaba al-Suweyket, who was only 17 at the time of his sentencing and was about to study in a U.S. university.

It's been decades since the United States dropped the first atomic bomb. Since then, the exponential increase of the destructive power of nuclear weapons is almost unimaginable. Here's how powerful nuclear weapons have become.

We thank the U.N. Missions of the US, France and the UK for reminding us that there are security challenges. We disagree that these challenges require deterrence with nuclear weapons. Rather, we think that confidence-building measures linked to creative negotiations is the best step forward.

72 years ago (August 9, 1945) an all-Christian bomber crew dropped a plutonium bomb on Nagasaki City, Japan, instantly vaporizing, incinerating, irradiating and/or otherwise annihilating tens of thousands of innocent civilians, mostly women and children. Very few Japanese soldiers were killed by the bombs.

Threats and provocations can only make things worse. Moves that offer time for dialogue and assurances of safety need to be pushed, since there are no good outcomes to the current conflict. Bluster, sanctions and military actions are totally irrational, not to be played by sane antagonists. This game is now being played. Nuclear reality lies before us.

6 Aug 2017 - Since marketing, omitted and fake news have – to a worrying extent – replaced knowledge and ethics, why not celebrate that the media have omitted every mention of Hiroshima Day today? Welcome to the Nuclear Denial Party!!

13 ago 2017 - No dia 2 de agosto de 2017 ocorreu um fato preocupante para a humanidade e para cada um individualmente. Foi o dia da chamada “Sobrecarga da Terra” (Overshoot Day). Quer dizer: foi o dia em que gastamos todos os bens e serviços naturais, básicos para sustentar a vida. Estávamos no verde e agora entramos no vermelho ou no cheque especial.

31 juillet 2017 - Au Venezuela (comme ailleurs), la différence entre une dictature de droite et une dictature de gauche est la suivante : sous une dictature de droite, les opposants "disparaissent". Sous une dictature de gauche, les opposants passent tous les soirs à la télé et dans tous les médias internationaux pour dénoncer la dictature.

10 Aug 2017 - These days the US Congressional Israel lobby and its knee-jerk amen chorus are hyping what those still occupying Palestine refer to as its coming 3rd war in Lebanon. Reportedly, Israel is finalizing elaborate plans to once and for all eviscerate Hezbollah while accelerating the collapse of the Iranian theocracy with the claimed support of the White House and the Saudi block among many others.

The opportunity to reach the financially excluded with a new generation of financial services has huge developmental as well as commercial potential. One of the ways for accelerating this path is through digital financial inclusion. It is perhaps the most powerful tool to unlock the most value for those at the bottom of the pyramid.

Most religions believe in the concept of soul or a spirit that resides in our bodies. It is also generally accepted that it is the soul that gives life to the body which it enters and then resides in. If the soul leaves the body, the person dies. For this reason, life and soul are often considered synonymous. A few questions arise about these concepts.

12 Aug 2017 - The vultures are circling. They can see the wounded man on the ground, and are waiting for his end. So are the human carnivores – the politicians… Like every clever (and unsure) leader, Bibi has destroyed every likely rival along the way. Now there is no obvious heir around. But many people are now repeating a slogan: "Anyone, Just Not Bibi!"

9 ago 2017 - Todas as coisas possuem sempre dois lados. Em direito se diz: “audiator et altera pars”: que se escute também a outra parte. Isso vale em todas as questões que envolvem destinos pessoais e de todo um povo. A questão da Venezuela é complexa e polêmica. Dificilmente poder-se-á emitir um juizo equilibrado tantos são os fatores a serem considerados.
