Haiti’s devastating 2010 earthquake left an estimate of 250,000 residences either destroyed or severely damaged, this in an already impoverished country.
In 2013, just as Haiti was beginning to find a gradual path toward recovery and reconstruction, the Chikungunya virus, a mosquito-borne virus that is endemic to Thailand and that had been advancing westward at a quick pace since 2009, arrived in Haiti.

According to labor research, this is the minimum ‘living wage’ in Cambodia.

Every time I listen to the radio and hear the announcement “gas prices at the pump are expected to go up by 5 cents a litre tonight,” I wonder if the oil companies are signalling each other to raise prices. How is it that when crude prices drop, prices at the pump often go in the reverse direction? How come all the refineries decide to do their maintenance at the same time and take dollops of capacity off the market to drive up prices? Higher pay for no work works here! How come the price controls that once existed for oil and gas and gave us some stability, have now been removed, and this... Read More

There is brouhaha in the media these days about the Russian invasion of the Crimea and the subsequent referendum in that territory. Western governments call the invasion unjust, and the subsequent referendum invalid; Putin is labelled a blackguard - a throwback to Hitler, they say. By whose standards are these incursions into sovereign territories judged? By whose standards are referendums that are put together with obscure questions that deliver confused answers considered just?
I’m going to flip the coin to other “invasions”; Iraq by the USA and its allies on the hunt for mythical... Read More
The troops will be part of a group of about 1,300 troops, mostly American, who are taking part in Rapid Trident, a previously planned exercise. US officers cancelled a military exercise in Russia in the light of current events but confirmed the exercise in Ukraine would go ahead. British officials said they had yet to decide the UK’s level of participation in Ukraine but confirmed planning for Rapid Trident 2014 in Lviv, near the Polish border, was ongoing. The US has already sent 12 warplanes and 300 personnel to Poland in the wake of Russia’s takeover of Crimea. On Tuesday, vice president... Read More
