Members of Vancouver’s Nepalese community look to help in rebuilding efforts


Global News

WATCH: The magnitude 7.8 tremor hit a heavily populated area near the capital of Kathmandu, causing catastrophic damage. Nearly 2,500 people are confirmed dead in four countries and that number is expected to climb. Canada is preparing to send our disaster response team. Jill Bennett has more.

Members of Vancouver’s Nepalese community are closely following the aftermath of the Nepal earthquake and working on ways to help rebuild the South Asian nation.

“We haven’t slept the whole night,” said Abi Sharma, co-owner of Vancouver’s Cafe Kathmandu, on Saturday. “We are first-generation immigrants from Nepal…I have 50 or so immediate family members, and I’m the only one who is here.”

There are around 2,000 people from Nepal living in British Columbia, and Sharma said many of them are planning local fundraising efforts.

“We do fundraising all the time,” he said. “There’s abject poverty…but in a situation like this, the community definitely rallies around.”

South Africa’s Marauding Death Mobs: Foreigners tell of being ‘hunted like dogs’


Peace and Freedom

By Felix Mponda

Blantyre (Malawi) (AFP) – Foreigners fleeing xenophobic violence in South Africa told Tuesday of how they escaped marauding death mobs and vowed never to return to the country where they had sought a new life.

Holding her one-year-old daughter in her arms, Agnes Salanje from Malawi said she “faced death” during the wave of anti-immigrant violence that has claimed at least seven lives.

“We could have been killed as these South Africans hunted for foreigners, going from door to door,” Salanje, who was a domestic worker in the Indian Ocean port city of Durban, told AFP.

Nearly 400 Malawians arrived…

THE FOUNDATION

“It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him.” —Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785

South Gate Police Attack Cop Watcher. Destroys Cellphone (video)


American Everyman

by Scott Creighton

Police in South Gate, California attacked a woman and stole her phone while she was video taping them on the street the other day. They destroyed her phone.  I don’t know how many crimes that officer committed during the 53 second video of the incident. I count at least three (assault, strong-armed robbery and vandalism)

The officers she was recording were dressed in flak-jackets marked “police” so they weren’t undercover agents. They were out in the street in broad daylight. The woman recording the officers on her phone was well within her rights to do so.

You can see the cop run up to her from the side and snatch the phone out of her hand, stamp on it and then kick it toward her violently. If the phone hit her when he kicked it toward her, that could be yet another assault charge.

How to save the NHS – by the people who work for it | Society | The Guardian

As a trained researcher, I take serious exception at this biased article from the Guardian. It’s an interesting read. Check it out!

via How to save the NHS – by the people who work for it | Society | The Guardian.

The Guardian article is full of bias. If you read it carefully you will see a series of political sensitive statements, and highly edited extracts from interviews.

This is neither objective nor subjective research. Ahead of the election, there are a series of unsubstantiated generalizations by the Guardian. Most importantly, the article fails to look at the alternative policies open to the political parties.

What ever happened to evidence-based reporting at the Guardian?
