Office Politics Good Or Dangerous?

Being requested to offer a public presentation will be each gratifying and frightening. Subsequently, other New England colonies – similar to Connecticut and Rhode Island – also succeeded in changing into self-governing just by asserting that they had been past any governmental authority, and then establishing their very own political system modeled after that of the Pilgrims at Plymouth.

Within the lead as much as the 12 March elections, many opposition candidates publicly demanded that President Uribe do one thing to purge the lists of political candidates, removing these people considered in close cooperation with paramilitary leaders.

Nonetheless, the story of the past sixty years or so, ever for the reason that founding of the United Nations with all its shortcomings and glories, the mergence of nation-states in giant parts of Africa and Asia from the clutches of colonialism and imperialism, the story of the majority of human inhabitants to … Read More

The place Politics And Spirituality Intersect

Should you wish to see the great, the bad and the ugly side of individuals of religion, simply query the faith. Some of the enterprising – if unsavory – buying and selling practices of the time was the so-called “triangular commerce.” Merchants and shippers would purchase slaves off the coast of Africa for New England rum, then promote the slaves in the West Indies where they would buy molasses to bring home for sale to the native rum producers.

Far too typically, the U.S. is offered as the more influential in relation to cultural tendencies in North America; and, while it’s true that Individuals usually are the instigators of many cultural phenomenons that ultimately blaze a path the world over, Canadian influences can sometimes be just as consequential and much-reaching as those from its friends to the south.

To make sure, the Black Energy motion imagined the probabilities for black … Read More

Harappan Civilizations Describe Indian Geography and Indian Politics

After domestication came farming. Indian geography was very much suitable for farming. Fire was a force here, too. Slash-and-burn agriculture is one of the oldest and simplest ways to clear the land of trees. Once used extensively by primitive tribes, it is still used today in some places, like Borneo. The process: slash the bark on the tree, which stops the sap from flowing and eventually kills the tree. The leaves die and fall off, allowing sunlight to filter onto the forest floor where the fallen leaves decompose into fertilizer. Then crops are planted. In two or three years, when the soil starts to show signs of being depleted of nutrients, the dead trees are burned, the ash provides fertilizer, and more crops are planted. Unfortunately, this requires constantly moving into new areas and destroying the forests.

The first cultivated plants were barley, then wheat from wild grasses. There are … Read More

Politics of the Rubbish Bin

The subject of rubbish, waste collections and wheelie bins are a common topic in the newspapers and other media. It seems the subject of rubbish bins is a hot topic, but why?

The main problem with rubbish and waste collection is the sheer costs involved. Everything we throw away has to be either stored somewhere until it either rots or degrades, or it has to be recycled and converted into other useful items. And while more and more recycling is taking part all over the country, we still produce million of tonnes of landfill waste each year, the cost of which is crippling councils and local authorities who struggle for space which is in demand for housing, development and business.

While most of us are encouraged to recycle more and more, a lot of the difficulties are a0pften concerned with the various different recycling policies that run up and down … Read More

Free Yourself From Wealth, Religion and Politics

Early men were leading a nomadic like. They were hunters and food gatherers. They were as free and as happy as wild animals. Gradually they started agriculture and lived in settlements. When agricultural production increased, the concept of property and wealth came into existence.

With the accumulation of wealth, people became worried for the security of life and property. Because people of one settlement plundered the wealth of other settlements. So people started believing in two powers – one is supernatural power and other is human power. They believed that the source of supernatural power is God and the source of human power is King. Either all people believed in these two powers wholeheartedly or few people forced others to believe and keep faith in them. The later possibility appears to be true. For few people became wealthy and few people became religious leaders or rulers.

Few people who projected … Read More

Critical Thinking: Does Identity Politics Cause Some People To Suffer From Thinkaphobia?

It could be said that the main purpose of the education system is to give people the guidance that they need in order to be able to think for themselves. Along with this, it will be important for them to receive the tools that they need to stand on their own two feet.

In an ideal world, that is what would happen during someone’s time in the education system. This would then allow someone to leave with their own mind and they would soon be able to support themselves.

Back to Reality

But while this is how some people will be when their time in the education system comes to an end, there are going to be plenty of people who won’t be like this. The trouble is that even if someone doesn’t know how to think for themselves, it doesn’t mean that they will realise this.

One way of … Read More

Sugar – Your Health vs Politics – Always Read the Ingredients Label – Part 1 of 2

So you have cravings for Sugar and Sweets and you consider Life without it pretty bland – don’t we all?

Well, relax, this is not about coercing you into giving up on those lovely chocolates and tempting pastries, but rather to make you aware of how the choice of sweetener in the product affects your health and the health of your children – and to reveal the links to the unexplained horizontal growth you may be experiencing – even though you eat so little.

We have all heard that Americans consume huge amounts of sugar, over 150 pounds per person and year. As if this wasn’t enough, a recent U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) survey was cited as adjusting the latest numbers to160 pounds of sugar a year – a 30% increase since the early 1980s. That’s the approximate equivalent of 53 heaped teaspoons of sugar per person per day!

Book Review of ‘Risk – The Science and Politics of Fear’ By Dan Gardner

According to Gardner, our misjudgments originally stem from the fact that our brains have evolved to deal, very effectively, with the sort of immediate risks that we have historically encountered as a species, say as hunter-gatherers in the African savannah. But it is this same evolution that makes our brains singularly ill-adapted to the complexities of the modern 21st Century urban jungle and causes us to make egregious mistakes.

At the heart of Gardner’s explanation lies the idea that we have two different internal systems to react to events: roughly summarised as ‘head’ and ‘gut’. ‘Head’, a rational, reflective, but also slow-acting system, is often overridden by ‘gut’, a more intuitive, fast-acting system, which bases its recommendations on factors such as precedent and recency. For example, in the case of stressful situations, ‘head’ barely gets a say, and if so, then often too late.

Historically, ‘gut’ has served us very … Read More

Sexual Bravado and Sexual Politics Involved in Female Orgasm

We all have vocal chords but that does not mean that everyone can sing or even wants to. Similarly they may all have a clitoris but not every woman masturbates.

Kinsey concluded that around 30% of women are ‘sexually unresponsive’. At the same time because he simply documented what women told him, his report made every woman an authority on orgasm. No one has questioned the biological, physiological and psychological mechanisms that might justify how these orgasms are achieved.

“If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain!” Kinsey found that only some women respond sexually but female orgasm has been redefined today in emotional terms to make it ‘achievable’ by more women.

These are ’emotional orgasms’ because they depend on a loving relationship. Sexual response is subconscious so a woman cannot make a conscious choice to orgasm with one man because she loves … Read More
