Fake news is always a big problem in almost every country but there is media to curb this. But think of the situation where media is the one who is promoting and spreading fake news for sake of TRP (Television Rating Point). And recently we witnessed it. So I would say Almost all news channels in India have been sold by the ruling parties. Media is considered as voice of voiceless people but think when they are shutting these voices. Then it would certainly result in killing of the democracy of that country.
11. The Deep Underground Command Center.
Located in the heart of Washington D.C the Deep Underground Command Center sits over 3000- 4000 feet below the surface of the earth.
If there’s anything that’s more evident amongst my friend groups and acquaintances alike it’s that we are all eager, thirsty and ready to start building wealth in one way or another. We all have the knowledge, the education, the support systems, and resources to do so right? Well… while building wealth involves learning how compound interests and loans work there’s also another element and that is the racial wealth gap. A gap that’s only growing larger in size each year.
The coronavirus pandemic is hitting virtually everyone. There are almost no places on the face of the earth where there are no cases, and if there are, it is probably by deliberate omission of governments as is the case in North Korea and Venezuela.
Throughout history kings, queens, emperors and other rulers are seldom remembered in a positive light. They did tough jobs in often unforgiving and violent eras and had to get their hands dirty now and then.
So it was that in the year of our Lord Two thousand and twenty that the world was hit by a great fiendish plague of untold magnitude that spread to all corners of the world bringing disease, dis-ease, malaise, pain, sorrow, and confusion. Like a great whirlwind, it swept through the world - upending countries, governments, communities, education, and life, leaving death, tears, and confusion in its wake.
A couple weeks ago, I published an article recommending my favorite wellness podcasts. Since then, it has come to my attention that the woman behind one of the podcasts, Jen Gotch, curated a culture of racism at her company ban.do. In an effort to provide folks, especially white folks, an alternative that is rooted in dismantling white supremacy and supportive of the Black Lives Matter movement, I am offering an updated set of recommendations centered on anti-racism work.
Like so many across the nation, I have been lost this week. Lost in hurt and anger and confusion for so many of my friends. I must begin by acknowledging my privilege. I am a white woman of middle-class. I have never been pulled over with the fear, This is how I die.

The protests against racist police violence in the U.S. has acquired global attention, and the internet has been flooded with support and hashtags. But posting a black square is not what is going to bring centuries of systematic racism to its knees. To say that racism is bad is simply not enough - it is our duty as white people to truly educate ourselves on these matters that our ancestors created and that we benefit from every single day, while black people suffer.
10. Republican Palace
Located in the heart of Baghdad, Iraq, this palace was constructed on the orders of King Faisal II and was the preferred place for Saddam to meet visiting heads of state.
In the final week of 2019, I asked the supporters of Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang (otherwise known as the Yang Gang) to let me know their favorite videos of the year with or about him, and to vote on them using likes on Twitter. The result was a list of over 30 favorite videos. I then took the top 15 from that list and asked the Yang Gang to rank them using ranked-choice voting (one of Yang's policy proposals) to best determine the top ten videos. Over 350 people voted and this ranked list is the result.
Before I get into this, I want to play my “minority card” granting me the power of immunity to personal attacks about my perceived privilege. I hope by the time you finished reading this post the following declaration will be redundant. I am a masculine looking gay woman, I grew up poor, and I am half native. I also live with a mental illness, but I mean who doesn’t these days? My point is while my stats indicate I am not a typical person of “privilege,” my education and my bank account would state otherwise. I graduated at the University of Calgary with a bachelor of social work. I basically have a degree in oppression. We were always encouraged to advocate for people in-need. While I do agree with many of the principals and philosophies of social work I've seen being a "social justice warrior" become bastardized, and hijacked by today's youth in the name of leftist politics. Here are four uncomfortable truths about "the left" that more conservative thinkers and politically centered folk find cringey and foolish.
