KAREEM EZZAT*, 15.12.2009 10:05

IDN-InDepthNews Service

No Child Left Behind Decreases Family Time

Kriss Laney, 15.12.2009 02:22

The amount of homework that teachers have been pressured to assign is doing a great injustice to children. Kids today spend more time doing homework then with their families. They spend 8 hours a day sitting sedentary at their desk and performing tasks that teachers assigns to them. When the time comes that these children can be themselves and do the “normal” kid activities they are not able to do so as they are required to spend hours on academic homework.

Why Multicultural Education Should Be Taught In Schools

Kriss Laney, 15.12.2009 02:18

To break the cycle of racism and hate, we must have children learn multicultural education in the school system throughout our country; this process is extremely important. These are the children whose ideas and thoughts are going to change the way in which the future of our country thinks. Without these ideas being taught in our school system their will be little advances in the world of race equality for all. Children must learn a new way of thinking in order to pass on the current ideals and continue to grow and advance in terms of race equality.

Marylou German, 15.12.2009 01:39

There are staggering disproportionate high levels of pollution in communities of color in the U.S. and other cities of the world.

On Global Warming: Response to FT Gideon Rachman's 'And now for a world government'

Zahir Ebrahim, Project, 15.12.2009 00:57

Actually, if you look at the coefficients of contributions, things become manifest. Pollution isn't exactly the same thing as global warming, or global cooling, although it certainly impacts them both. Yes, reducing pollution is very important, so is increasing sustainable living, and respecting the power of the earth to create bounties which make our lives both comfortable and pleasurable. This isn't what is being talked about here however, although, the disinformationists would like one to think so. Here, you have to assume that the text-books/articles/literature/Nobel-Prizes could also be lying, telling half-truths through omissions and distortions, or spinning politically motivated mantras as axioms upon which all further discussions are being based. Just like 911 and the 'war on terror'. That is quite a difference in approach to studying! It requires one being a Sherlock Holmes trying to solve a complex puzzle laden with deliberate red herrings more than being a naïve grad-student!

Bayern: Hypo-Alpe-Adria-Desaster

Werner Sims, 14.12.2009 21:27

HYPO-ALPE-ADRIA-BANK Das Hypo-Alpe-Adria-Desaster: Noch mal sind 825 Millionen Steuergeld weg .... Für die Hinrichtung ließ sich Ministerpräsident Seehofer Zeit. Erst am Nachmittag, in einer Sondersitzung des bayerischen Kabinetts, wurde das Bauernopfer ausgesucht: Der Vorstandsvorsitzende der BayernLB, Michael Kemmer (52), soll die Verantwortung für das Desaster um den Erwerb der maroden österreichischen Hypo Groupe Alpe Adria übernehmen. Doch ob sich Kemmer so einfach schlachten lässt, war noch nicht klar. Schon eimal war er kurz vor dem Rauswurf gestanden: Bei seinem Amtsantritt 2008 war Seehofer sauer, weil er sich von Kemmer über die Milliarden-Belastungen der Bank durch faule US-Immobilien-Hypotheken falsch informiert gefühlt hatte.

Zur Kolonial-u.Militärgeschichte Europa-Afghanistan

Hans Christian Wellershof, 14.12.2009 18:09

G-Collage-b-e-de-01 Natürlich gibt es in vielen Kriegen viel Schlimmeres als die über 100 “lufterschlagenen” Menschen jetzt bei Kundus. Z.B. in GAZA. Aber bei meiner Ausbildung zum Reserveoffizier wurden und waren wir auf solche Massaker kaum vorbereitet - doch, in der Einzelkämpferausbildung - da standen die entsprechenden Anleitungen sogar im Handbuch. Ich will nur darauf hinweisen, dass ich Selbstjustiz auch nach solchen Massakern nicht richtig finde. Doch es gibt andere Kulturkreise, in denen ist Blutrache ein Grundrecht, eine Grundpflicht. Das mag man schlimm finden.

CIA Agent Captured in Cuba: Beware &quot;DAI&quot; also in Venezuela

Eva Golinger with an assist from General Joe, 14.12.2009 18:02

"Now that Cuba has exposed the intelligence operations that DAI was engaging in (recluting agents, infiltrating political groups and distributing resources destined to promote destabilization and regime change are all intelligence activities and illegal), the Venezuelan government should respond firmly by expelling this grave threat from the country. DAI has now been operating in Venezuela for over seven and a half years, feeding the conflict with more than $50 million dollars and promoting destabilization, counterrevolution, media warfare and sabotage.

In an ironic twist, currently in the United States five Cuban citizens are imprisoned on charges of alleged espionage, yet their actions in US territory were not directed towards harming US interests. But the DAI employee detained in Cuba – working for a CIA front company – was engaged in activities intended to directly harm and destabilize the Cuban government. The distribution of materials to be used for political purposes by a foreign government with the intent of promoting regime change in a nation not favorable to US interests is clearly a violation of sovereignty and an act of espionage.

Development Alternatives, Inc. is one of the largest US government contractors in the world. Currently, DAI has a $50 million contract in Afghanistan. In Latin America, DAI is presently operating in Bolivia, Brasil, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haití, Honduras, México, Nicaragua, Perú, República Dominicana and Venezuela.

All references in this article to DAI in Venezuela are thoroughly documented in The Chávez Code: Cracking US Intervention in Venezuela by Eva Golinger (Olive Branch Press 2006). "

The United Nations' Role in Peace and War: &quot;The UN of the arms dealers.&quot;

Denis Halliday, 14.12.2009 06:30

"As Bill Clinton and Madame Albright liked to say – the United Nations is there to further the best interests – of US foreign policy. However, to be fair, other States undoubtedly see it much the same way, but are more discrete! And lack ambitions and military capacity for global empire!

And now we have President Obama – who wants to work with the United Nations and be a player rather than to dominate and control. Sounds good – we await the reality as he expands the war in Afghanistan, keeps Bagram airbase prison full of the tortured and uncharged, finishes off the destruction of Iraq, refuses to end the occupation of Okinawa, has the thick skin to criticize China for human rights abuses when America itself has a deplorable record, and now militarily threatens Iran! Not exactly the sort of new player we had hoped for perhaps! But let’s keep our fingers crossed..."

Protest: UN supports land theft and destruction of rainforests

Reinhard Behrend , translated by Diet Simon, 13.12.2009 23:10

The executive of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change has decided to give emission credits to soy, oil palm and other plantations for producing agrofuels. The agro-energy industries subsidised by the European and American governments can look forward to even greater windfalls in the millions. This decision has to be overturned. P{lease support our protest action because this decision will worsen climate change and escalates the destruction of rainforest.
