Ivory Coast went to the polls last November 28. Ivorians cast their votes for their new president but the first round did not produce any president for this country. This opened a second round, which generated turmoil. In fact, the incumbent president Laurent Gbagbo and the opposition leader Alassane Ouattara claimed victory each. This situation has caused lots of confusion as both candidates strongly believe they have been legally elected by the population. They both were sworn in the same day but at different hours for ruling the country but Ouattara is recognized in Africa and beyond as... Read More
Imagine a world where every war or armed conflict is fought through two rival sports teams of each opposing country or region on an Olympic game field. The entry fee is $500 million in gold bars or sterling silver coins. The winner of the game claims their money and a prize of peaceful territorial control, until the next Olympic event when the losing team has an opportunity to compete again and reclaim what was lost. If the country or region of either team breaks the rules and ensues in any form of armed conflict, the gold is transferred to an established charity in a different country other... Read More
Women are making history here and there in the world. Despite this, some countries are still strongly hindering women to accede the post of presidency. This is not a policy that can move to sustainable development. For a country to develop, there must be development in every sector and so, no person must be left behind. It is in this vein that Brazilians have trusted Ms Dilma Rousseff, 62, and elected her to rule them for 4 years and lead the country toard great objectives.
This courageous woman has just been elected President of Brazil. She is now the country's first female president... Read More
Terrorism has become very active in different parts of the world these day. It is now extremely threatening world security and particularly foreign travelers. Due to this, the American State Department has sent out a warning since yesterday Sunday, October 3. This extra cautious alert exhorts any American who is planning to travel to Europe and other risky places where terrorists are currently active to be on their guard about probable terrorists assaults. This is indeed to name the al-Qaida networks as sources of the trouble. In the meanwhile the government of Britain has raised terrorists’... Read More
The French Senate has overwhelmingly passed a bill banning the burqa-style Islamic veil in public after being assured it didn't trample on religious freedoms. Other European nations with large Muslim populations may follow the French lead in this apparent restriction on civil liberty.This action came after Muslim scholars have said there's nothing in Islam that mandates full body coverings for women. The nijab and burqa have developed culturally in some Islamic nations. This fact apparently convinced French politicians the ban wouldn't effect the religious freedom of the nation's 3.5 million...

Last week, this billboard caused me to do a double take. I was crawling along Route 33 in Pennsylvania, in a construction zone, as I tried to process what I was reading.
Fuel… okay. Food… okay. Freedom?
I’ve been to that Sunoco station. Their 24-hour operation and their location are convenient for me. When there, it is easy to spot both fuel and food for sale, but I can’t recall there being any freedom available for purchase. Granted, I was free to buy all of the fuel and food that I desired, but there were no fewer restrictions at this gas station than there are at any... Read More
