    Kim Jong Un is a threat to the United States. He wants to develop nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them. Donald Trump wants to put a stop to that. However, Trump comes to court with unclean hands. Not only does the United States have a massive stockpile of nuclear weapons, but Trump openly brags about the development of new nuclear weapons for various military uses.

    March 9, 2019

    Canada is holding Meng Wanzhou, a Chinese bigwig, for possible extradition to the United States. The U.S. wants to try her on charges alleging that business interests controlled by her firm Huawei are trading with Iran in violation of U.S, sanctions. In retaliation, China has arrested two Canadians, Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor, charging them with endangering national security.

    It was either in 1962 or 1963. I was fresh out of graduate school in my first social work job, at Brightmoor Community Center in Detroit. In those times racial conflict was never far from mind.

Of course, nothing that crude was said openly. I was assigned to go.

Dr. Svetlana Popova, Senior Scientist at Toronto's Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, noted this unfortunate situation, pointing out that FASD can damage any organ of the body and can have serious mental health consequences. She was part of a panel presenting in Ottawa on January 24 at a session sponsored by the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Group of Ottawa and Adopt 4 Life.
