Με μια φωτογραφία η οποία έχει πυροδοτήσει αντιδράσεις και αρκετές συζητήσεις στο διαδίκτυο, το εξώφυλλο του περιοδικού TIME απεικονίζει μια 26χρονη μητέρα η οποία θηλάζει τον τριών ετών γιό της, που στέκεται σε μια καρέκλα.
Δεν έχω διαβάσει το άρθρο αλλά από την περιγραφή στο εξώφυλλο κατάλαβα ότι έχει να κάνει με την αυξανόμενη τάση της θεωρίας «του δεσμού» την οποία παρουσιάζει με τον τρόπο του στο βιβλίο The Baby Book ο Bill και η Martha Sears, στο οποίο οι γυναίκες ενθαρρύνονται να θηλάζουν μέχρι τη νηπιακή ηλικία, να κοιμούνται μαζί με τα παιδιά τους και να τα έχουν συνέχεια μαζί τους «φορεμένα» σε μάρσιπο Συνέχεια →
A trillion dollars a year! We’re in the middle of a global economic and environmental meltdown, yet this is how much our governments are handing out to dirty energy,the richest industry on earth. It’s madness, but finally a few bold countries are speaking out.
New Zealand, Mexico, and Switzerland are leading a call for action at a meeting of world leaders in Rio in June. Slashing these scandalous subsidies now is crucial to saving our planet. But the polluters have a powerful grip over many of our governments. Only massive global public support can drown out the lobbyists of big oil, coal and gas — it’s what our people-powered movement was born to do.
The agenda for Rio is being finalised now — this meeting could be our last chance to avert climate catastrophe. Let’s give our champions the political teeth they need to stop this trillion dollar trickery. Sign the urgent petition to stop our government’s colossal collusion with polluters:Συνέχεια →
Right now, the US is poised to pass a new law that would permit US agents to spy on almost everything we do online.But we can stop them before the final vote.
Companies that we trust with our personal information, like Microsoft and Facebook, are key supporters of this bill that lets corporations share all user activity and content with US government agents without needing a warrant in the name of cyber-security — nullifying privacy guarantees for Συνέχεια →
On Tuesday March 6, the French National Assembly (Assemblée Nationale) passed a law proposing the creation of a new biometric ID card for French citizens with the justification of combating “identity fraud”. More than 45 million individuals in France will have their fingerprints and digitized faces stored in what would be the largest biometric database in the country. The bill was immediately met with negative reactions. Yesterday more than 200 members of the French Parliament referred it to the Conseil constitutionnel, challenging its compatibility with Europeans’ fundamental rights framework, including the right to privacy and the presumption of innocence. The Conseil will consider whether the law is contrary to the French Constitution.
The new law compels the creation of a biometric ID card that includes a compulsory chip containing various pieces of personal information, including fingerprints, a photograph, home address, height, and Συνέχεια →
(NaturalNews) If you have ever seen the famous 1975 movie One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, you likely recall several disturbing scenes in which mental health patients are given frontal-lobe lobotomies, or the iconic scene where actor Jack Nicholson’s character undergoes electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Today, these horrific forms of so-called mental health treatment are considered to be cruel relics of the past, but a new bill in Australia proposes that young children be given these treatments without parental consent, and even be permitted to undergo sterilization procedures without parental consent.
The Government of Western Australia’s Mental Health Commission (WAMHC) has basically conjured up a proposal for new mental health legislation that bypasses parental involvement in the mental health treatment process, and instead tasks children under age 18, and of any age, with making the decision about whether or not to be sterilized, or whether or not to have their brain tissue destroyed Συνέχεια →
Taxi owners’ unions will hold a General Assembly in central Athens on Thursday to discuss the new status quo that will arise from the provisions of the bill and to take decisions on further action.
The strike initially affects Athens and Thessaloniki, but local taxi owners’ unions from other parts of the country are also expected to state participation in the action.
The bill, unveiled during Tuesday’s Cabinet meeting by Transport Minister Yiannis Ragoussis, provides for a return to exclusive state authority of the issue of taxi permits, the introduction of special nine-seat taxis and motorcycle-taxis, a hefty fee for acquiring a new taxi licence and a reduction of taxi fares by 10-20 percent.
More specifically, the issue of a taxi Services Provision Permit returns to the state and may be Συνέχεια →
