The world never forget, except us
May 9, 2022, as the old saying goes, the playing field is even for all classes of people during election as everyone is given the chance to choose the leaders they want. The presidential election was not the ordinary choose the lesser evil race. This is the head to head battle of a widow vice president and the dictator's son.
In a world of such abundance, how do we allow others to go without? Food scarcity let alone lack of nutritional produce. Mineral content has been under attack for years from big corporations. We allow drug addiction and homelessness to run rampant. I know free will and all, and I do get that. We need a collective of individuals perhaps that band together. Integrate sustainability in regards to growing local crops of nutritional value. Every neighborhood should have some sort of hydroponically cultivated fresh produce. In retrospect to the on going crisis in Ukraine" ".. The utilization of fish incorporated into the hydroponics water system will provide an adequate source of fertilizer to feed the growing vegetables / crops / marijuana even. If that float's your boat. Gas prices, heating bill's the cost of living in general on the rise. I know the energy companies love making money, and that's cool and all but gesh. How long is enough, I say we jumpstart the real source of renewable energy. Stop tinkering around with nuclear, which from past mishaps/ coverups/ leaks. We see the devastating effects ionizing radiation can do to our ecosystem our homeostasis within the body on molecular levels. The manipulation of our genes, hindering our organic doorway to the creator. Who decides in this world who lives who dies. Which elderly individual has reached their so called economically sound age to be culled. Which habitual less then desirable will be put to death for the beneficial standpoint of the hive. It just seems like we're drifting further away from what we really could be. I've alway's been under the impression that carbon was a necessary element.
The future of war
War is out of the European mind. In fact, it is receding, but many factors of conflict remain and war is adapting to the evolution of techniques (digitization, nanotechnology) as well as the ways of thinking (waging wars without victims, at a distance); Europe cannot pretend that violent conflicts are definitely a thing of the past.
What Does It All Mean?
A couple of days ago, I turned 50 years old. That's supposed to a major milestone, an accomplishment. I suppose when one takes into account all the pain, suffering, and death in this world, it is. But for me, turning 50 just bought to the forefront a question that I've subconsciously asked myself for as long as I could remember; WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
When Will Black America Shoot Back?
May is mental health awareness month in the United States, but in reality, one group has been under attack for their basic freedoms since the 1800s. Black America is under attack as they are now the fourth living generation of African descendants of the transatlantic slave trade to deal with a version of mental enslavement. They still remain the only active race inside America whose origin story looks and sounds like the beginning of the popular animated film, Encanto. A group of people running for their life. The system of power in America is built against this specific group.
The Ongoing Crisis Should Not Be Wasted
It is always wise to try to search for the positives around you, especially in the midst of a crisis situation. It may seem impossible to accomplish at the time, and you may not always have control over the circumstances. However, you do possess the power to control how you react and control the crisis as opposed to being controlled by the crisis. Instead of getting distracted and lost in turmoil, if one chooses to focus on any good that can emerge from it like knowledge gained, lessons learned, and potential growth, neither the future nor the present needs to be so grim.

Stand Up For Ukraine
In all the years that we humans have graced this planet with our presence, there has been one constant that seems to follow us wherever we go… war. Even when we speak of peace, the routes which we plot out to get there can often be considered an offensive strategy – peace by force, whether you like it or not. We trudge onward, leaving a trail of destruction in our wake. At times it feels almost impossible to go on, the relentless stream of bad news becoming overbearing, willing us to switch off and stop paying attention. It is imperative that we keep paying attention.
Bahaa Murad, a 25-year-old engineer, boarded the death boat that sank off the coast of Tripoli a few days ago, searching for his dreams, which are supposed to be too small to risk because of them. “I want to take a hot shower every day. I sprinkle water on my body, when I want, not to wait days for the water to reach us.” This is how Baha’s mother recounted, explaining that he went out to join the boat happy and optimistic, wanting to complete his studies in Germany, secure his future, and send money to his mother to pamper her. The grieving mother does not deny that the family finds what suffices it: “It is not food and drink that we lack, but dignity.” Survivors talk about taking an illegal and dangerous journey, as if they were talking about going out for a picnic. The infernal dangers they expose themselves and their children to are underestimated. On board the death boat, only half of its passengers were recovered, and it is estimated that at least 30 bodies are still with the boat at a depth of 400 meters, a shocking number of children, infants and pregnant women.
Where Worlds Meet
Introduction Borders are essential to the idea of the state. Without them there is no way for the state to control and exert its identity. Classic definitions of the state revolve around the state and its ability to control a monopoly on violence within a territory delineated by borders. Such is the western concept of the modern state. But when did this come about? And why do we need borders defined by the state instead of porous borders that follow community identities. These are decolonizing questions that seek to critically attack the modern day concept of the state. I argue that borders are inherently colonial. They were inspired by colonial imperial thought and have taken on a life of their own. The goal here is to engage in an exercise that goes “beyond rigid identities and imposed labels, as it will open the way for the existence of multiple knowledges rather than a monolithic one” (Capan 7).

I am Indian. Why Is the Government Sending Me Into Exile?
The letter from the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs showed up in September 2019. My mom sent me a WhatsApp message of the letter, illuminating me that the Government regarding India was denying my Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI). India doesn't perceive double ethnicity and the OCI - an extremely durable visa for people of Indian beginning - is the closest comparable to double citizenship and given to a huge number of Indians all over the planet. I had 21 days to answer and to challenge their cases; it was day 20 when I had gotten the letter. On the off chance that I didn't answer it would be assumed I had nothing to say in the have any meaning and my OCI would be dropped. I answered by email quickly to challenge their cases, with the Indian Consul General of New York recognizing receipt, and a printed version of which was conveyed to the Home Ministry. Then, on November 7, after The Print revealed that my status was under survey, the public authority declared by means of Twitter that my OCI status had been removed. This was the main I knew about it.
