    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

    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.

    January 9, 2012

    This is Egypt 2012, one year into the revolution. International media was here a year ago and are still coming. Free elections for a new parliament are almost complete and were almost ideal.

  • Demonstration at McGuinty Offices for HousingReuel S. Amdur
    October 15, 2012

    A group of 80 demonstrators gathered on August 29 in front of the constituency office of Premier Dalton McGuinty to protest what they see as government inaction on the housing needs of low to moderate income Ontarians. The demonstration was organized by ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). Their concerns relate to a lack of affordable, livable housing, to poor upkeep of rental units, to what is seen as too generous a permitted increase in rental rates, and to the ability of landlords to charge whatever they want once a unit becomes vacant.
