    NUS conference has backed free education after many years of opposing it. Is a change in the air?  NUS conference - anticuts.comThis could be a turning point for the National Union of Students (NUS) and the student left. Delegates at the recent NUS’s national conference ended over a decade of NUS opposition to free education. The result is a triumph for principled student activists, inside and outside of NUS, and it is a further defeat for Blairism. However, it is only meaningful if students and activists on the ground have a clear understanding of what has happened, and what it means.

    Claudia Calviño, independent producer in Cuba. (Photo Raquel Pérez) Two feature films and a short film by an independent producer did not get permits despite having the necessary financing to start filming. The denial was issued by the Ministry of the Interior (MININT in Spanish), the entity that for several months has been reviewing the scripts and the composition of the technical teams for cinematic projects being developed on the island. Previously, the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry (ICAIC in Spanish) and the Ministry of Culture were responsible for the review and…
  • Everyone's “Gabo”

    Marianna Breytman
    18 Apr 2014 | 8:20 am
    Pain undoubtedly overwhelms literature. Gabriel García Márquez, affectionately known as Gabo, was a precursor to “magic realism” and although some of his works were about love, his furies and other fantastic stories about his native village, Aracataca, gained followers in places as remote as China and Iran.  The reaction to Gabo's death was so strong that even papers like The New York Times dedicated a good part of the space on their website to him. Image taken from nytimes.com His death shocked Americans that have closely follows his work. His reach was so powerful…

Last week, on April 10 and 11, 2014, a group of men from the village of Maisky in North Ossetia blocked traffic on a federal highway, protesting the detention of two local young men. Aliskhan Gurazheva and Mustafa Barkinhoev stand accused of participating in what the authorities are calling “illegal armed formations” in the bordering republic, Ingushetia. Around 100 friends and family members gathered to protest the arrests on April 10, claiming that the boys had been detained without cause. First, North Ossetia's…

    17 Apr 2014 | 12:00 am
    Consortium News - By Robert Parry - Apr. 17 (News Analysis) - During the months of protests aimed at overthrowing Yanukovych, Parubiy became the commandant of “Euromaidan,” the name for the Kiev uprising, and – after the Feb. 22 coup – Parubiy was one of four far-right Ukrainian nationalists given control of a ministry, i.e. national security. But the U.S. press has played down his role because his neo-Nazism conflicts with Official Washington’s narrative that the neo-Nazis played little or no role in the “revolution.” References to neo-Nazis in the “interim government” are…

    Rob Webster
    18 Apr 2014 | 3:30 am
    The CEO of NHS Confederation responds to our recent article by Gary Walker, Kings Funds suggests NHS fees - but is it really 'independent'? Dear openDemocracy In his article on your website, Gary Walker sadly seems to have firmly grasped the wrong end of the stick, in more ways than one. First, it is absolutely crucial that we face up to the issue of NHS affordability. The fact is that without major changes to what we do and how we do it, the NHS in its current set up is not sustainable. To properly address that, we must look at the full range of options, even if we make early decisions that…
  • Faith and health care in Africa: a complex reality

    18 Apr 2014 | 1:00 am
    It’s time to move past overly simplistic arguments surrounding Catholics and condoms, and make an effort to understand the real and very complex contributions of faith-based health providers across Africa. Français, For many years, analysts of international development and public health were “religion-blind.” In the past decade, however, there has been a significant resurgence of interest in faith-based health providers, traditionally referred to as “mission” hospitals and clinics. Missionaries established many of Africa’s modern health systems, and, at independence,…

The Blunders of our Governments,  Anthony King and Ivor Crewe,  Oneworld, £25 hardback   Labour and the Conservatives, as the beneficiaries of the crumbling ‘two party’ system, have invariably opposed the introduction of proportional representation in general elections, out of naked self-interest.  The principal…

    I was engaged in the thoroughly humdrum activity of marking some LL.B Honours dissertations early this Good Friday morning when I received an email from my old schoolmate, Sam Wickramasinghe, informing me of the death last night of Ananda Chittambalam. I am still shocked at the suddenness of his demise and terribly saddened by the news. But as Dryden said, ‘Death, itself, is nothing; but we fear / To be we know not what, we know not where’ and I take some small and inadequate solace in the fact that Ana’s end was swift. Paikiasothy Saravanamuttu introduced me to Ana about ten years ago,…
  • Colombo’s changing cityscape

    Emily Louise Marshall
    18 Apr 2014 | 6:01 am
    Introduction Since the end of the war in 2009, reconstruction and development in Sri Lanka has centred primarily on rapid economic development (Bopage, 2010; Goodhand, 2011). This can be seen in the current drive to transform Colombo into a “world-class city”, as a “preferred destination for international business and tourism” (Secretary of Defence and Urban Development). The improvements can easily be seen in infrastructural developments across Colombo including roads, shopping centres, restaurants, public spaces such as parks, pavements and redeveloped buildings / heritage sites.
  • The ‘Mad Monk’ Phenomenon: BBS as the underside of Sinhala-Buddhism

    Kalana Senaratne
    15 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    Photo courtesy Today The marauding Buddhist monks, who appear to be tied to a long political leash, have run out of control. They need to be stopped. But it is equally necessary to take a cold look at the complexity of the phenomenon that groups such as Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) have come to represent. This is no freak show, and is hardly an aberration in post-war Sri Lanka; also because we know now that critics such as Ven. Dambara Amila (JVP) who predicted that the BBS was bound to dissipate in a matter of months were hopelessly wrong. Sinhala-Buddhism & BBS That it is necessary to take a…

This article was a follow-up of an earlier article on the failure of Ambassador Jayantha Dhanapala, a member of the Board of Directors of Dialog Axiata PLC, one of Sri Lanka’s premier telecommunications service providers, to prevent Colombo Telegraph from being blocked by that company in Sri Lanka. These articles were followed by a third follow-up piece published on 27 March 2014,…

    Als die Nominierung für den Preis bekannt gegeben wurde, wiesen viele Menschen sofort darauf hin, dass SBY nur wenig getan hat, um gegen die wachsende religiöse Intoleranz und religiöse Gewalt [en] in dem bevölkerungsreichsten muslimischen Land der Welt anzugehen. In den vergangenen Jahren haben Angriffe [en] gegen Gruppen religiöser Minderheiten zugenommen. Imam Shofwan aus Jakarta initiierte eine Petition [en] auf Change.org: Nama saya Imam, seorang Muslim dari keluarga Nahdlatul Ulama.

  • Russland: Umweltschützer nach Probenentnahme angegriffen

    Ein Beispiel: Am 9. Mai wurde in Pervouralsk (ca. 40 km entfernt von Jekaterinburg, im Ural), eine Stadt mittlerer Größe, die stark industriell geprägt ist, ein Umweltschützer von Unbekannten angegriffen und schwer verletzt. Der Blogger, Stepan Tschernosubov, geht davon aus, dass der Angriff ein Gegenschlag sein sollte. Er hatte die Öffentlichkeit darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass ein örtlicher Chrom-Hersteller Abwasser in den malerischen Tschussowaja-Fluss (siehe Archivfoto unten) leitet. Ein Fels im Tschussowaja-Fluss. Eine Farbaufnahme von Prokudin-Gorsky von 1912. Public domain.

    Mit einem Rechner für die Berufsunfähigkeitsversicherung lässt sich schnell und problemlos herausfinden, welcher Versicherer für die eigenen Lebensumstände der Richtige ist, denn gerade in der heutigen Zeit, wo es ein enorm großes Angebot an Versicherungen gibt, lohnt sich ein Vergleich mit einem Rechner in jedem Fall! Zunächst sollte jedoch überprüft werden, wie sinnvoll eine Berufsunfähigkeitsversicherung ist. Wie der BU-Beitrag errechnet wird Wenn man sich mit dem Gedanken beschäftigt, eine Berufsunfähigkeitsversicherung abzuschließen, so ist es natürlich wichtig, dass man…
  • Ein CDU-Geheimdienst im Kalten Krieg – Nach Lektüre vernichten

    6 Jun 2013 | 4:40 am
    Man durfte diesen Partei-Geheimdienst – dessen düstere Arbeit Stefanie Waske in ihrem Buch “Nach Lektüre vernichten” beschreibt – ganz sicher nicht aus Steuergeldern finanzieren. Aber solche kleinlichen Bedenken plagten und plagen die Unions-Parteien bis heute nicht. Und so wechselte dann Hans Christoph von Stauffenberg, Mitarbeiter des BND, 1970 vom halbwegs legalen staatlichen Geheimdienst in die Protokollabteilung der bayerischen Staatskanzlei, von der er sagt: “Da gibt es aber wenig für mich zu tun.” Na klar, denn der eigentliche Job lag im Aufbau…

  • Warning: Spirituality can be hazardous to your health & wealth

    Marc Oromaner
    17 Apr 2014 | 3:49 pm
    Ah, the enlightened life! A life where the superficial trappings of the material world have lost their luster. Where greasy, fried, and fatty foods are no longer tempting. Where meditation, sharing, and an appreciation of the beauty of nature provide all the fulfillment one needs for true happiness. And yet, considering how healthy, content, and self-fulfilled spiritual people claim to be, why are they plagued with so many health, wealth, and happiness issues? Is poverty a requirement of enlightenment? Is self-indulgence selfish? Is self-love a sign of an inflated ego? The irony is that most…
  • The Emperor decrees that age is not “just a number”

    Chris Matarazzo
    15 Apr 2014 | 7:30 am
    I have been declared Emperor of the World. Let us not waste time explaining why or how; let’s all simply accept the fact that we are better off, as a result; hence, my next decree: Emperor’s Decree No. 70: Age simply is not “just a number.” Age is, after, say, twenty-one, the irreversible decline of the mind and body, the ultimate result of which is, in the best of all possible situations, an uncomplicated and peaceful death. But age is, most often, a slow ride on a dirty bus, with sticky floors, among a bunch of stinking strangers to soap, at the end of which we find ourselves…
  • Bad sports, good sports: Fans should not be part of the show

    I constantly realize that I am not the typical sports fan. There are just so many things I see and hear fans do that I just wouldn’t do. I have had seats at a baseball game that were right up against the fence that separates the stands from the field, and yet I have never felt the need to interfere with a player in any way at all, whether that be physical interference of any kind of even verbal interference. There were a couple of interesting examples of those things happening this week, though. I was not involved, of course. During a game between the New York Mets and the Los Angeles…
  • Top ten ways the new hip progressive Pope Francis is celebrating Easter Sunday

    Bob Sullivan
    14 Apr 2014 | 5:30 am
    10. Instead of blessing everyone from his balcony, he’s doing his monologue from ground level, like Leno. 9. He’s inviting Benedict XVI over for an afternoon showing of Philomena. 8. He’s holding an Easter Egg Roll – not that kind – he’s just calling his local Chinese to order 3,000 egg rolls! 7. He’s starting his own Easter papal ‘white smoke’ tradition (wink wink), followed by a Council of the Cardinals discussion of how current Theological thinking fits in with today’s debate between String Theory and Loop Quantum Gravity. 6. He’s counselling some of his most confused…
  • The new SAT: No more mandatory writing

    8 Apr 2014 | 7:23 pm
    Part 8 (of 874) in an occasional series about how standardized tests are destroying education. The redesigned SAT, debuting in 2015, will feature new approaches to language skills, and the writing test will be optional. We’ll return to the old 1600-point scale that we all knew so well. With the College Board admitting/recognizing that the writing test, which was introduced in 2005, is flawed, some are wondering if this presents an opportunity to reassess all mechanized writing tests, to now see them all for the education-draining entities that they are. A recent New York Times Magazine…

    The politics of being queer is a radical social movement that deals with sexual identity and gender performativity. It has become a movement of individuals who feel they do not fall within the ‘normal’ social structure.  Some, who claim the term, would venture to say that the label has become to be understood as promoting non-identity...

However, this doesn’t mean opportunities for such teachable moments do not present themselves, but they’re often avoided due to fear or retaliation. Fear of offending someone, fear of negative...
