I believe music heals the soul. While it’s no new philosophy, it’s more true today than ever. Alcohol and drug addiction is killing people across our nation and artistic approaches hold a bigger bounty than any traditional means.

The power that alcohol and drugs hold over people is a force to be reckoned with. We should never forget that we are surrounded by former users and recovering addicts. We should fight that power so that people may have a chance to live life to the fullest. It isn’t too late if you are reading this.

Like many other countries that border the Persian Gulf, Iran has communities of African origin living inside its border. While most Afro-Iranians are descendants of slaves brought to the country centuries ago, some Africans came to Iran in search of paid work as sailors. Afro-Iranians have their own distinct cultural and traditional practices, and mostly live in the Hormozgan province along the Persian Gulf, Sistan and Baluchestan along the Pakistan and Afghanistan borders, and Khuzestan province, abutting Iraq and the Gulf.

Hello!

My name is Tiffany Anderson and I am a 19-year-old self employed artist and entrepreneur. I am currently attending school for graphic design. I had just recently decided to take a plunge into devoting myself to my artwork when I realized it was truly a God given gift that I was meant to use. Recently I have been creating portraits for customers. It blesses me to know that something I created could bless someone else. I live in Fort Worth Texas and was recently invited to have my artwork in a show at the Lenora Rolla Heritage Museum (The inspiration for my Maya Angelou, Nelson Mandela, and Frederick Douglas Pieces.) Art is truly my passion and I believe that if you strongly excel in something, you should put everything into making that your career, even if you think the odds are against you. Nothing is impossible.   Tiffany Anderson

Trump versus the media

unnaedUnfortunately, the mistrust of science and critical thinking in this country is a growing problem.  Trump like a snake oil salesman knows this and panders to this mistrust.  If we are not careful, we will listen to what Trump says and forget to watch what he does.

Ralph E Stone GlobalNewsCentre.com

(SAN FRANCISCO)  Low Energy Jeb [Bush], Little Marco [Rubio], Lyin’ Ted [Cruz] pathological Ben [Carson], and Crooked Hillary [Clinton] were all quite effective labels used by Donald Trump on his march to the White House. With the destruction of 16 primary challengers and a well-known political figure in his rear-view mirror, Trump has now zeroed in on his old opponent, the media. Why?  Because the media is out to get him.  Or maybe they are just fact checking.

I never had any problems. I was born here, in this multi-ethnic environment, and I think I spent a beautiful and happy life.  Our country (Albania), as far as equality, probably unique in the world, and I am proud I was born in it and live in it.  Rizo Šurla

Is the U.S. Senate responsible for thousands of deaths in sealing their fact finding report on drug epidemic?

How many lives could have been saved — especially our young people if in 2007 Patrick Leahy had replied to me “We are taking this epidemic seriously and are launching an investigation to stem the loss of life to addiction and death.”

Marianne Skolek-Perez Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On May 9, 2012 the U.S. Senate Finance Committee announced an investigation into the prescription opioid epidemic waging a war of addiction and death throughout the U.S.  Their investigation was to be focused on the American Pain Foundation (they closed their doors when the investigation was announced), the Center for Practical Bioethics, and five other organizations. It also targeted three leading opioid makers: Purdue Pharma (OxyContin), Endo Pharmaceuticals (Percocet), and Johnson & Johnson (Duragesic). The Senate Finance Committee demanded to see documents and get answers to their questions.

Two-State Solution Delusion

Netanyahu’s One Finger Answer To The Two-State Solution

Total U.S. aid to Israel is approximately one-third of the American foreign-aid budget, even though Israel comprises just .001% of the world’s population and already has one of the world’s higher per capita incomes.

Ralph E Stone GlobalNewsCentre.com

(SAN FRANCISCO)  A fantasy persists of a Israeli-Palestine peace agreement leading to an independent Palestine state in the land Israel has occupied since the 1967 Mideast War.  It must be clear by now to anyone paying attention that Israel has no intention of engaging in meaningful peace negotiations that would result in an independent Palestinian state.  Rather, Israel is slowly squeezing the Palestinians where the ultimate goal is to take over the entire country by  erecting a wall or fence, which cuts deep into Palestinian territory, joining large Jewish settlement blocks to Israel, further confining the Palestinians to isolated enclaves.

Veterans lament ousting of Red Warriors at Standing Rock

20161204_125202Standing Rock was a hard-earned victory and while the support of veterans was brief, it was effective and proves to the US government that people will no longer stand for the abuse of our Native population.

Tim King Global News Centre

(CANNON BALL, ND)  The only word to describe the government of North Dakota and the police and soldiers associated with harming Native people who stand in objection to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), is disgusting.  Foul has a place as well.  These cretins, including John Stewart “Jack” Dalrymple, are the remaining vestiges of a while world of treaty violating terror that is bound to be strongly reinforced with the presidency of Donald Trump.

But they are going to learn that the people of this nation are done with it.  The veterans I met while attending the “Veterans Stand for Standing Rock” movement are the best people I have ever met in my life, on a level only with the Native tribal populations fighting to save the earth for all of us.  The average American, loaded with credit card debt and mortgage obligations are of little help, they are in the trap like a hamster on a wheel running hard to keep up and keep what they have.

But throughout the United States and beyond, are countless people who are willing to resist and fight back and we scared the hell out of Dalrymple and company when thousands and thousands of us descended on Standing Rock, showing our deep and sincere support and respect for people who have been fighting for months and months in the face of Nazi-like abuse to make DAPL die, and it is dead.

The latest development, unsurprisingly, is a tribal request for the Red Warrior Society to leave Standing Rock.

They ARE Standing Rock.

No group has held the line more or taken more abuse than the Red Warriors, and its eviction has a lot to do with the rumor mill. The rumor was that Red Warriors were arming themselves, this was absolutely untrue and a detailed search of their camp yielded nothing close to a weapon.  Still, they were asked to leave.  Many Standing Rock participants were angered that Red Warriors asked them to get up early and participate in direct actions.  Many say they were roused before they had a chance to eat breakfast.  Red Warriors were demanding of time but their intentions were always true.

Native people have long dealt with division dissent.

From the earliest days when Native people were coerced into working with the US Cavalry which was in the direct process of conducting a Genocide of indigenous population, to today’s more mellow Native leaders who still believe treaties and laws will help Native people, the more edgy groups like Red Warrior Society are scary.  But what is more scary than black blood being pumped beneath the Missouri River?  The catastrophic damage the pipeline represents is untenable, and just outright stupid.  What good is anything if our water is polluted beyond repair?

Another tragic consideration is the naivety and abject ignorance of Americans who have not a clue how badly their water supplies have already been contaminated.  The book I co-authored with Robert O’Dowd, “Betrayal”, details how the Marine Corps has horribly contaminated all of its military reservations, most of which were constructed during WWII.  In only a few decades, underground water supplies were ruined.

Fracking is another major issue that plagues our country today.

Red Warriors and caring veterans are all parts to the puzzle of resolution and I hope that any means necessary are used to end the vast mistreatment of our planet.

Tim’s years as a Human Rights reporter have taken on many dimensions; he has rallied for a long list of cultures and populations and continues to every day, with a strong and direct concentration on the 2009 Genocide of Tamil Hindus and Christians in Sri Lanka. As a result of his long list of reports exposing war crimes against Tamil people, Tim was invited to be the keynote speaker at the FeTNA (Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America) Conference in Baltimore, in July 2012. This is the largest annual gathering of North American Tamils; Tim addressed more than 3000 people and was presented with a traditional Sri Lanka ‘blessed garland’ and a shawl as per the tradition and custom of Tamil Nadu.

Tim specializes in writing about political and military developments worldwide; and maintains that the label ‘terrorist’ is ill placed in many cases; specifically with the LTTE Tamil Tigers in Sri Lanka, where it was used as an excuse to slaughter people by the tens of thousands; and in Gaza, where a trapped population lives at the mercy of Israel’s destructive military war crime grinder. At the center of all of this, Tim pays extremely close attention to the safety and welfare of journalists worldwide.
