U.N. Week -- Style Over Substance 1.10.2014 Politics on
'Fashion week' just ended for the global development community, where thousands of international leaders convened in New York for the U.N. General Assembly (UNGA). Presidents, ministers, donors, U.N. leaders and CEOs celebrated the newest designs in global development: stylish poverty reduction plans, glamorous partnerships to end world hunger and beautiful spokespeople for the latest hot issues like climate change and child trafficking. And just like fashion, everything old was new again -- we pulled out our bellbottoms and re-visited the importance of meaningful civil society participation at the UNGA. This time around, we focused on the post-2015 development agenda that will replace the once trendy Sachs-inspired Millennium Development Goals . But from what I saw last week, it's style over substance. I was in New York with Memory, an 18-year-old girl from Malawi who has overcome challenges that most of us cannot imagine. Growing up in a family of six siblings, Memory fought with her parents to finish ...

Ukraine Conflict: Shelling Hits School Playground And Minivan In Donetsk, Killing 10 1.10.2014 Politics on
(Reuters) - At least 10 people were killed on Wednesday when shells hit a school playground and a mini-van in a nearby street in Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, city authorities and Reuters witnesses said.

There were no children among those killed in the shelling at School No. 57 on the first day of the new school year, though witnesses said the dead included a biology teacher and the parent of a child at the school.

Reuters correspondents saw the bodies of three adults at the school and an additional six bodies in a burnt-out mini-van and on streets nearby. The regional administration said a total of 10 people had been killed in the shelling of the city, a stronghold of rebels waging a separatist rebellion.

Single Parents Want to Be Good Parents 30.9.2014 Politics on
It's time to accept the fact that there is little stigma to single parenthood. "Born out of wedlock" is a phrase seldom heard today. More than 40 percent of new mothers are unmarried . Seventy-two percent of African-American children live in single parent families. The growing trend of having children outside of marriage is not likely to be reversed, writes Isabel Sawhill of the Brookings Institution, who has been studying childhood poverty for years. She has reached the conclusion that it's time to face up to that fact and help all parents become good parents. The second lesson is that parenting skills must be taught early. There are many reasons for the single parent trend: women increasingly don't think the men in their lives are dependable, many men are too poor to accept the responsibility of marriage, and social norms have changed. Marriage is one answer to child poverty simply because two incomes are better than one. And so are two loving parents. But no one has figured out how to promote ...

Secret Service Head Takes Responsibility In Breach 30.9.2014 Politics on

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secret Service Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers she takes full responsibility for the serious breach of the White House mansion eight days ago. That's when an Army veteran with a knife climbed the fence and made his way well into the executive mansion before he was tackled.

Pierson also told a House panel there have been six fence-jumpers this year alone, including one just eight days before that intrusion.

Pierson is testifying before the House Oversight and government Reform Committee in her first public accounting of the episode.

The Army veteran, Omar J. Gonzalez, made it much further into the White House on Sept. 19 than the Secret Service previously disclosed.

"I'm Just a Kid": Tariq's Ordeal 30.9.2014
Last summer, Tariq Khdeir, a 15-year-old American citizen from Baltimore, accompanied his parents to the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat for a six-week visit with relatives. The first friend Tariq made when he arrived was his cousin, Muhammad Abu Khdeir, whom Tariq had not seen since he was four years old. “We had so much fun,” Tariq told a gathering at the national conference of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation in San Diego on September 19, 2014. One night while he was in Jerusalem, Tariq saw some police with Muhammad. Tariq thought they had kidnapped Muhammad. Tariq wondered, “Is he gonna come back? Is he gonna come back alive”? But Muhammad did not come back alive. In retaliation for the deaths of three Israeli teenagers, Muhammad was beaten and burnt alive by three Jewish extremists. After Muhammad’s murder, people took to the streets in protest. Israeli Defense Force soldiers began firing rubber bullets at them. Incredulous, Tariq thought, “Is this really happening in front of ...

The Obvious Relationship Between Climate and Family Planning - and Why We Don't Talk About It 30.9.2014
Several years ago, Bill Gates keynoted a breakfast for Seattle-based Climate Solutions , a nonprofit focused on advancing the clean energy economy and driving practical, profitable solutions to climate change. Gates opened his speech with an equation. To paraphrase: Our carbon problem = persons x services x the energy intensity of services x the carbon intensity of energy. The number of people is growing, Gates observed, and we all want more services. While Americans arguably consume too many goods and services, billions of people currently living in dire poverty need more. He then spent the rest of the time discussing the last two factors in the equation. Recently, Robert Engelman and Samuel Codjoe published an article at Grist titled, “ Hey, UN: Climate Change and Population are related. ” They pointed out the fact that the United Nations would soon be hosting back-to-back conferences about population and climate change respectively, and they lamented that neither conference would likely address the ...
