http://www.instablogs.com/ Abandoned deal reignites rebel war in Philippines Human history is fraught with conflicts for instance political, economic, social, and cultural. Some of them have been overcome successfully others await solution. The battle raging on the beautiful island of Mindanao has managed to create the most dreadful divide that transcends all the above categories. The story of Chritian Rita Lapi and Muslim Latifah carain epitomizes not just the rift between the two communities but also division of heart, mind and soul. This is absolutely tragic and could have disastrous consequences for Christian and Muslim population of Mindanao. History has witnessed bloody partitions accompanied by mass exodus of entire populations from one end to the other. The current situation in Mindanao opens window for a similar reenactment. Both muslim and Christian populace of the island must understand that commingling of minds and hearts can help resolve most vicious conflicts. They must retain the vital essential called humanitarianism and compassion towards human life that can help fill the deepest divide. Lebanese women fight against nationality laws Thousands of children in Lebanon are denied full access to education, healthcare and residency because they do not have Lebanese citizenship. Lebanese women cannot pass on their nationality to their children. In the event of separation, it is the father who gains automatic custody, according to Lebanese nationality law. In a country famed for being the region's most socially liberal and politically democratic, just one woman, Bahia Hariri, the sister of slain former premier Rafik Hariri, is a member of Lebanon's new unity cabinet. Women's groups are demanding 35 percent reservation within government, so that issues like custody and nationality law could take precedence. Poor political representation is hampering women's ability to reform discriminatory laws. Many Lebanese women have children abroad and would like to return to Lebanon with their families but are prohibited because they are unable to provide legal papers to their families. Dharavi eyed by real estate developers Plans to demolish Dharavi, the largest slum in Mumbai are fast adrift. Reason being the desire to transform Mumbai into Indian Shanghai replete with swankiest buildings and booming commercial centers. Actually, the plan is meant to erase the patch that puts Mumbai, India’s commercial heart to shame in the eyes of streaming visitors. Is erasing Dharavi the only way to uplift Mumbai from its sense of ignominy? Mumbai should be proud of Dharavi. Slum dwellers should be given assistance to better their surroundings. The corner, no matter how miserable provides shelter and means of livelihood to thousands who flock Mumbai in hope of better future. Besides dharavi is an asset not a liability. The number of informal businesses and cottage industries that run from within it help meet the metro’s insatiable demands. With Mumbai already starved for space all the talk of rehabilitating slum dwellers in new buildings within Mumbai is absolute nonsense. Both Dharavians and Mumbaiites should unite and fight the real culprits – real estate developers- who want to enrich themselves at their cost. Anti Americanism seething in South America They say being anti-American is to be fascist, Nazi, terrorist, communist and anarchist, anyway, there are unpleasant adjectives to describe those who criticize the actions of the United States here in South America.But is that true? In the 60's the dictatorships which proliferated here were all supported by the United States. Those countries that refuse to overthrow if their “leftist” presidents, were threatened. If a government wanted to invest in land reform, education, public health, distribution of income was immediately strikethrough of communist and should be deposed! The largest democracy in the world shouldn't support other democracies? That is a paradox! More than this, hypocrisy. What United States did in that part of the world was simply hinder economic development and political integration of countries so they could maintain their regional hegemony. Fortunately, this situation is changing. Brazil is becoming itself a regional power that acts multilaterally, respecting all neighboring countries in search of an integration policy that will strengthen South America in the world. Am I Nazi or terrorist only because desire democracy? http://www.instablogs.com/

A captivating film, Mission Accomplished: The Story of the Flying Fortresses is a superb WWII motion picture. This film documents the autumn 1942 bombing mission of the 8th Army Air Force over occupied Europe. The star of the film is the B-17 Bomber, the vaunted Flying Fortress, that soared through the enemy infested skies of World War II. Most interestingly is shown how the preparation of the planes and the pilots, from maintenance to briefings, was accomplished. Stunning aerial footage of the mission, as well as what happens to the Flying Fortresses when they return to base, consummates this awesome film. Thanks to high production values, top notch information on the B-17, and thrilling war scenes, Mission Accomplished: The Story of the Flying Fortress is a powerfully enriching experience.

Human Reproduction seeks to answer that eternal question from a youngster: where do babies come from? As the film demonstrates, this was possibly more difficult to answer during the rigid social structure of the 1940s. When a father tells his son that babies come “By the Grace of heaven,” his son is not satisfied. At this point, the narrator launches into a description of the entire reproductive process, in stark medical detail, complete with pictures of sperm, eggs, and drawings of babies in various stages of development in the womb. Ahead of its time in 1947, this film contains accurate information, clearly stated. An enriching snapshot of the notions of sexual education in the 40s, Human Reproduction is a valuable piece of vintage video.

Narrated by none other than Eleanor Roosevelt, this film about the National Youth Administration’s efforts to train women for home front jobs is an engaging snapshot of World War II home front activities. Young ladies are shown doing such “male” jobs as welding, electronics, sheet metal, and tool and dye work. Little did Mrs. Roosevelt know, this would not be a turning point in women’s liberation, as these women were sent back home when the war was over. All the more interest due to the irony, Training Women for War Production is an enriching viewing experience for anyone interested in the evolution of gender roles in American history.

http://tinyurl.com/6cwo4w Ounce for ounce, says Lamine Diakite, a Red Cross official from French Guinea in West Africa, moringa leaves contain more beta carotene than carrots, more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach, more Vitamin C than oranges, and more potassium than bananas. Its protein content is comparable to that of milk and eggs, and its leaves are still available for harvest at the end of the dry season, when other food may be scarce. Malnourished children gained weight when put on a timely dietary supplement made from the leaves, Mr. Diakite says. He passed around pouches of the green, hennalike powder at a recent international summit in Boston. Until a decade ago, moringa was not widely known in Africa. Its leaves (boiled like spinach) were an occasional vegetable. Immigrant Indians prized the long, slender seedpods (stewed or cooked like green beans) as a delicacy. "But its nutritional value, newly 'discovered,' has been known for a long time," says Lowell Fuglie, an international development administrator who has been instrumental in popularizing the moringa in Africa for the past 10 years. Laboratory analysis has corroborated traditional knowledge about the plant. It now awaits further validation by western science. But even those who know moringa is edible don't always exploit its nutritional value, particularly beneficial to those eating a carbohydrate-heavy diet (meat is often costly in Africa). Senegalese people using moringa leaves to make mboum sauce, for example, discard the cooking water, which contains many nutrients, Mr. Fuglie says. His interest was sparked by research findings collated by the nonprofit Educational Concerns for Hunger Organization (ECHO). "Seeing moringa described as the most nutritious of all tropical vegetables," says Fuglie, whose father worked for USAID in Africa, "I wondered why there was so much malnutrition in regions where the tree is easily grown and used." Species of moringa are native to the Indian subcontinent and pockets of Asia and Africa. One species in particular, Moringa oleifera, which has especially edible leaves, has become naturalized in other regions, says Mark Olson, an evolutionary biologist. Moringa growing wild on Mexico's Pacific coast probably arrived long ago via the Philippines when Spanish galleons sailed between Manila and Acapulco, he says. He has traveled to remote areas to document the dozen or so species of the diverse, hardy native of the dry tropics. "It's very hard to kill the moringa with drought or heat," he says. Protein-rich plants like soybeans and legumes cannot survive such conditions or thrive in poor soil. The fact that the leaves - and not just the seedpods and seeds - are edible makes moringa a desirable crop. The seeds also yield oil that could be used as biofuel, and ground seeds can help purify water. Parts of the tree are used in traditional medicine. It also grows rapidly (good for reforestation), reaching a mature height of 30 feet, though often it's pruned annually to be as short as five feet, to keep leaves and seedpods within easy reach. It would be difficult to find a low-maintenance tree that offers more, says Fuglie. In the 1980s, development workers began to hear of the tree. Its popularity grew by leaps when Fuglie began to promote the shade-dried leaf powder as a food supplement, says Martin Price, director of ECHO. Reports from Fuglie's pilot nutrition project were persuasive. Still, there have been no clinical human trials to quantify the moringa's role in fighting malnutrition, says Jed Fahey of Johns Hopkins University. He is a volunteer for Trees for Life International, a group that promotes planting moringas. Based on centuries of human consumption, however, a strong case can be made that eating the leaves causes no harm, says Dr. Fahey, a phytochemical researcher. But because there is no definitive dietary study on the moringa, the scientific community and relief agencies still have reservations. Fuglie predicts that more moringas will be planted once aid organizations are convinced of the leaves' nutrition. Fuglie needs no persuading: If you had to design an affordable source of enriching supplements for the dry tropics, he says, "it may be impossible to come up with anything better than the moringa."
