Who is to Blame?

As the stocks slide the blame seams one sided, unfair, and wrong.  So who exactly is to blame, and how did we get into this economic mess?  Let me explain from the beginning how we got so very very wrong.

Future of Pride

What is Pride and what is the future of a phenomenon that has helped bring forth rights for a minority stripped of them.  Pride is a chance to be who you are and to express yourself.  It is a time to see messages of hope and a time to cheer them on.  It is also sadly a time to see protestors and see why we must keep fighting.

Turning 60!

Israel is turning 60 years old and celebrations are taking part in Israel and across the Jewish World.  Who would have thought on May, 14 1948 that in 60 years Israel would be were it is.  A nation of over 7 million people, a strong army, a strong economy, and described as high tech.  But most importantly that it would have peace with its neighbors Egypt and Jordan.

Religion of Hate?

A Christian Church has decided to picket Heath Ledger's funeral. Calling him a pervert for his role as a gay cowboy in the movie Brokeback Mountain. It begs the question, is Christianity a religion of hate?

Hot, Hot, and Hotter!

Global Warming, as scientists call it, is still a non agreed threat.  Some say that there is no evidence to prove the world is permanently heating up.  However, there is evidence that the world is hotter today then it was 50 years today.  So what is missing?  Is it a difference between those who choose to give up luxury to protect the environment and those who refuse to?

Israel? The Six-Day War!

On June 5th 1967 the Israeli Air Force launched a surprise attack on Egypt, drawing the entire region into the third Arab-Israeli War.  The resulting Israeli victory and control of Gaza, Sinai, Golan, and the West Bank changed and charged the region.  June 5th 2007 marks 40 years from that day, shall we go back and dive into the real facts surrounding the conflict.

Breaking The Myth

From a small house atop a snow-capped mountain in Norway, my eyes were torn from the picturesque view of the city below, by the flash of unsettling television images in the room. As the television coverage was in Norwegian, and I have only a limited grasp of the language at best, I struggled to understand what the crowds of protestors shown in cities throughout Europe were demonstrating against. War? Terror attacks? Labor Strikes? Taxes? No, sadly, it was the coverage of U.S. President Bush spreading his message of peace and unity throughout Europe this week.

Does Socialism work in Education?

Education is the basis for society, the thoughts one has, and what one does with their life.  One question one must ask is who should get education?  Does Socialism work in Education?  In careful examination of the definition of socialism and the socialistic educations in both Norway and America, one may conclude it is the implementation of the socialist practices, the affect on people’s view of the education system.
