Dear Pomona, California
This town, I know, has always been...like this. There have always been gangs, and there has always been a problem with transients from other parts of the country and world ... something about leaving their home state to either travel the country by foot, or, the usual - which is that a kid on the other side of the country was lured here to Southern California.
Bay of Pigs
When John F. Kennedy became President of the United States on January 20, 1961, he inherited every policy decision that Eisenhower had yet to carry out. (1) One of these was the planned invasion of Cuba to depose Fidel Castro and the 26th of July Movement. The Central Intelligence Agency had recruited and trained Cuban exiles to conduct the invasion. The operation became known as the Bay of Pigs Invasion after the point that the Cuban exiles made their landing. The planning of the invasion began with the 1959 defeat of Fulgencio Batista, the former president of Cuba. The CIA believed that the use of Cuban exiles would work because of their perceived success in the 1954 coup against President Jacobo Arbenz of Guatemala. In the 1954 coup against Arbenz, the CIA had used disgruntled Guatemalan military officers and Agency provided air support to aid in the coup. In the Bay of Pigs, there would be no such saving graces. The air and artillery support the US promised was either canceled or so delayed that Castro's forces easily repelled the invading forces. Additionally, the CIA had no understanding of the environment in which they were operating. In Guatemala, there had been differing factions to exploit within Arbenz's government. In 1961 Cuba there were no such factions left on the island. This was due to any that had opposed the 26th of July Movement fleeing the island in the wake of losing their benefactor. This meant that the invaders had no support to meet them once they arrived. This led to the spectacular failure that is now associated with the Bay of Pigs. By 1961, the CIA had grown confident enough in its abilities to conduct such an operation. However, they operated with undeserved confidence, as they had not learned how to conduct such operations in hostile nations. It is by looking at the CIA's overconfidence in their ability to pull off the Bay of Pigs Invasion that we see how Fidel Castro and the Cuban government were able to assert their sovereignty, and become a regional power despite the lopsided odds stacked against them.
She Has a Heartbeat Too
The majority of the world have been in shock since a law banning abortion from as early as six weeks into pregnancy has come into effect in the US state of Texas. It bans abortions after the detection of a foetal heartbeat, something medical authorities say is misleading. The Heartbeat Act was signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott in May 2021. The law has been heavily criticised by doctor’s and women’s rights groups around the globe, such as Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), who requested that the Supreme Court block the legislation.
Talking the Talk But Not Walking the Walk on Climate Change
Climate change remains a political football that wins votes, appeases the growing voices demanding strong responses and is seldom out of the news. You could almost think national governments and political blocks, such as the European Union, are getting their act together to stop this global catastrophe.

GB News offers plenty of angry opinion, but where are the facts?
What would C. P. Scott make of the launch this month of GB News? It is a free-to-air cable and satellite ‘news’ TV channel, with a conservative and anti 'woke' bias.
China's U Turn to Allow Couples to Have Three Children Wouldn't Amount to Much (sic)
China announced yesterday that it would now permit couples to have three children, up from the two that it specified in 2015, and a marked departure from its longstanding One Child Policy. While the One Child Policy was an attempt to slow down the burgeoning population in the 1950s after the Revolution, and was widely seen as draconian and severe, it was successful in preventing a Demographic Explosion that would have spelled much trouble for a country that was already the most populous in the world.

Peaceful protest gone wrong!
A lot of times i have always thought that democracy was meant to be or may be termed as a government for the people, by the people, and of the people. Or maybe should i say it refers to a form of government in which the people either have the authority to choose their governing legislators, or the authority to decide on legislation. But in Nigeria, the reverse is always being the case. On the 12th of June is the nation's democracy day celebration.
Disaster Relief Planning Reform:
2020 was an unprecedented year. FEMA called it our costliest year yet with a whopping 22 disasters. (Sillman, JD, 2021). It was a year of apocalyptic proportions that included wildfires, hurricanes, extreme temperatures, and a pandemic, during which our disaster relief fund took a significant hit. Although the United States is no amateur in the natural disaster department, this year was expensive and challenging for our disaster relief fund. It was particularly so for the state of Texas who experienced the pandemic as well as extreme temperatures. FEMA recently provided the CSRA with funding to mitigate disaster relief.
Scientific Integrity (SI) “... a global leader in climate science for decades in the US. Unfortunately, progress has slowed…”, the divisiveness begins within the first sentence of this article. Talking down to one's audience may have worked with previous generations but as the Policy Pendulum has been uncovered by the vast majority of an audience, pros and cons in balance, with a conclusion, and a possible solution. John Podesta, Bidisha Bhattacharyyam and Bianca Majumber present novel ideas regarding the new POTUS. The US plans, preeminence on the platform of applied science supporting “climate change mitigation and adaptation decision-making of governments and civilian stakeholders”. Why is this a federal conversation when state to state one could rally a conscious, consistent unity of governing each particular state (p36, O'Lear, 2010).
