    The use of what the Bush Administration called "extreme interrogation techniques" - a euphemism for torture - is not only a violation of international and U.S. laws, it's not going to make us safer, according to Tom Blanton, director of the National Security Archives at George Washington University, in Washington D.C.

  • Decoding Harper's Terror Game beneath the Masks and DiversionsProf. John McMurtry
    November 19, 2014

    Stephen Harper is the most deeply reviled Prime Minister in Canada's history. On the world stage, he is the servant of Big Oil boiling oil out of tar-sands to destroy major river systems and pollute the planet with dirty oil, while his attack dog John Baird leads the warmongering and bullying of nations like Iran and Syria targeted by the US-Israeli axis. He is the most despotic and toxic first minister in the life of our country. His administration defunds every social program and life protective system it can. It strips the country of its public information infrastructures at every level - including now the gagging of non-profit NGO's by eliminating their charitable status if they question any policy of his regime. Just as his friend George Bush Jr., Harper holds government by big-money backing, continual lies, attack ads, and life-blind policies to enrich the already rich. Canada's neo-con political class may have its head on backwards, but Harper is very cunning in skirting, subverting and perverting the law to abuse power at every level. He is the poster boy of the global corporate agenda of wrecking society and its common life support systems.

    With three-quarters of new immigrants coming from Africa and Asia, we need to give attention to the peculiar health needs of this population. One aspect of the problem is how we address dementia, including Alzheimer's. Dementia mainly affects older people, 65 plus. There are roughly 25,000 new cases annually in Canada. A quarter of people over 85 are afflicted. The disease is seen by people from various cultures in different ways.

    July 19, 2012

    Dementia, particularly Alzheimer's, is a problem that increases as populations age. France and South Korea are two countries with aging populations who are taking measures to address the problem.

  • Democracy in Egypt: Harper shameful standReuel S. Amdur
    March 23, 2011

    Israel claims to be the only democracy in the Middle East. Of course, ancient Athens was also a democracy, but built on slavery. Israel's democracy is built on denial of the rights of its Palestinian minority and its colonial and irredentist exploitation and mistreatment of Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. Moreover, it wants to remain "the only democracy" in the area.

  • Democracy in the Arab WorldDr. Ibrahim Hayani
    March 10, 2011

    Although the roots of the current revolutions in the Arab world can be found in the prevailing tyrannical/despotic order, violations of human rights, poverty, unemployment (especially among the young), corruption, dynastic rule, and widening gap between rich and poor, the deeper and more profound reason is the Arabs' enduring struggle for freedom and dignity - the two wings of the Arabian Eagle that emblazons the Egyptian flag.
