Haiti native Wyclef Jean discusses country’s challenges



Haiti native Wyclef Jean discusses country’s challenges"We can't just bring in aid," he said. "Aid is good, but if I'm bleeding a Band-Aid is good, but it's temporary.

"We need to start investing in the youth capital based on our youth's talents."

Jean, who has helped negotiate peace treaties between youth gangs in Haiti, said part of the education must be teaching young people to believe in their self-worth and potential. Years of being denied education and opportunity has created an "institutional prison" mentality among the Haitian youth, he said.

Haitians at DNC: 'We Hate Hillary'; She 'Belongs in Jail'

Haitians at DNC: 'We Hate Hillary'; She 'Belongs in Jail'The Haiti Sentinel wrote:

When the 2010 earthquake hit Haiti, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exacerbated the devastation to their own benefit. In the end, billions of dollars donated by individuals from countries all around the world, weeks upon weeks of top story attention on any and every news agency around the world, left Haitians not just where they began, but in worse circumstances.
“We hate Hillary,” one protester fumed. “Bill Clinton signed laws to incarcerate black people. All the Clintons are doing is more jails, more projects, more welfare. We need opportunity just like anybody else.”

Why UK Scientists Are Signing A Petition To Keep Access To European Projects - BuzzFeed NewsLast week, more than 1,600 early-career researchers signed a letter to The Times asking the government to guarantee funding at the same level if EU money is lost and to ensure that free movement of researchers is protected. And a joint letter signed by seven national academies, including the Royal Society, called for urgent discussions on “how to address any funding gap in both the short and medium term” and emphasised the “intrinsically collaborative” nature of European research programmes that “allow researchers to achieve more than they would alone”.

Rousseff's great mistake was to allow Venezuela into Mercosur, says Brazilian minister — MercoPress

Rousseff's great mistake was to allow Venezuela into Mercosur, says Brazilian minister — MercoPressSerra pointed out that Rousseff committed a major political error for Brazil's interests when it supported the incorporation of Venezuela to Mercosur, the trade agreement which under Lula, Rousseff and the Kirchner couple in Argentina turned into a highly ideological group ever so distanced from its original purpose of promoting trade, business and investment.
Brazil with the support from Paraguay have asked to postpone handing the Mercosur chair to Venezuela until it complies with full member responsibilities and commitment promises, despite the fact the rotation should take place this month.

More than a million Brazilians protest against 'horror' government | World news | The Guardian

More than a million Brazilians protest against 'horror' government | World news | The GuardianMore than a million Brazilians have joined anti-government rallies across the country, ramping up the pressure on embattled president Dilma Rousseff.

Already struggling with an impeachment challenge, the worst recession in a century and the biggest corruption scandal in Brazil’s history, the Workers party leader was given another reason to doubt she will complete her four-year term.

The demonstrations on Sunday – which reached all 26 states and the federal district – were expected to be bigger than similar rallies last year. The largest took place in São Paulo, where the polling company Datafolha estimated the crowd at 450,000, more than double the number it registered last year.

“My son (Jamal) is a big fan of Milo, and so when he came up to me asking to do this I was reluctant at first. I then thought of the freedoms I get to take advantage of, freedom of speech is something I’ve been able to enjoy ever since I came to the states 30 years ago to attend university, and I would hate for it to be any other way.”

Powdered eggs - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



The Chinese were airdrying eggs that had been whipped and left in the sun to dry and then ground since the Middle Ages. Early importers to the United States included Vic Henningsen Sr. and others in the United Kingdom.
Powdered eggs have a storage life of 5 to 10 years when stored without oxygen in a cool storage environment.[2]
The process of drying eggs so as to make powdered eggs oxidizes the cholesterol, which has been shown to be dangerous in animal trials.

No Fear Shakespeare: Antony and Cleopatra: Act 5, Scene 2, Page 3


Shall they hoist me up
And show me to the shouting varletry
Of censuring Rome? Rather a ditch in Egypt
Be gentle grave unto me. Rather on Nilus’ mud
Lay me stark naked and let the waterflies
Blow me into abhorring. Rather make
My country’s high pyramides my gibbet
And hang me up in chains!


State Dept. misplaced $6B under Hillary Clinton: IG report - Washington Times



State Dept. misplaced $6B under Hillary Clinton: IG report - Washington Times

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.


The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report.


The alert, originally sent on March 20 and just released this week, warns that the missing contracting funds “could expose the department to substantial financial losses.”


The report centered on State Department contracts worth “more than $6 billion in which contract files were incomplete or could not be located at all,” according to the alert.


“The failure to maintain contract files adequately creates significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” the alert states.

Altricial - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaAltricial, meaning "requiring nourishment", refers to a pattern of growth and development in organisms which are incapable of moving around on their own soon after hatching or being born. The word is derived from the Latin root alere meaning "to nurse, to rear, or to nourish" and refers to the need for young to be fed and taken care of for a long duration.[1]Species whose young are immediately or quickly mobile are known as precocial.
