Colonial Statue Protesters Target Canada’s Scottish-born Founder

Colonial Statue Protesters Target Canada’s Scottish-born Founder

John A Macdonald,

Marc Horne | The Times UK

A statue of the Scottish-born founding father of the Canadian nation has been toppled in a symbolic rebuff almost 130 years after his death.

Officials in Victoria, capital of British Columbia, decided to remove the bronze statue of Sir John A Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister, because of his treatment of the country’s indigenous population.

Macdonald, whose family emigrated from Glasgow in the early 19th century, brokered the deal that established the country 150 years ago. He was also the architect of the 1876 Indian Act, which led to native Canadian children being forcibly taken from their parents.             Continue reading

Human Extinction by 2026? A Last Ditch Strategy to Fight for Human Survival

Desultory Heroics

By Robert J. Burrowes

There is almost unanimous agreement among climate scientists and organizations – that is, 97% of over 10,000 climate scientists and the various scientific organizations engaged in climate science research – that human beings have caused a dramatic increase in the amount of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide released into Earth’s atmosphere since the pre-industrial era and that this is driving the climate catastrophe that continues to unfold. For the documentary evidence on this point see, for example, ‘Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature’, ‘Consensus on consensus: a synthesis of consensus estimates on human-caused global warming’ and ‘Scientists Agree: Global Warming is Happening and Humans are the Primary Cause’.

However, there is no consensus regarding the timeframe in which this climate catastrophe will cause human extinction. This lack of consensus is primarily due to the global elite controlling the…

Profile: Bollywood Needs a Makeover! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Entertainment Profile: Bollywood Needs a Makeover!

– By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Mahipal 1919-2005

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised to clean up India. He will do well to start with Bollywood. Over the past thirty years the Indian film industry has spread its influence to nearly every part of India, and even abroad, where its mindless and garish depictions have assaulted the intelligence in many living rooms. But this was not always the case.

One of the first superstars in the Indian cinema was Mahipal. He starred in over 100 movies his last movie ‘Jai Santoshi Ma’ (1975) has set records in the industry. In those days Bollywood idealized womanhood and the family and the epics left messages of the enduring values of love and devotion.

Before Columbus: How Africans Brought Civilization to America

Before Columbus: How Africans Brought Civilization to America

By Garikai Chengu – Global Research, August 10, 2018
Global Research 12 October 2014

Editor’s note: This article was originally published in 2014.

On Monday [October 13 2014], America’s government offices, businesses, and banks all grind to a halt in order to commemorate Columbus Day. In schools up and down the country, little children are taught that a heroic Italian explorer discovered America, and various events and parades are held to celebrate the occasion.

It has now become common knowledge amongst academics that Christopher Columbus clearly did not discover America, not least because is it impossible to discover a people and a continent that was already there and thriving with culture. One can only wonder how Columbus could have discovered America when people were watching him from America’s shores.      Continue reading

Data is what fuels the information economy.

And while there are many varieties of data clogging up the internet’s bandwidth, there is one specific type of data that is known to be particularly lucrative: personal data.

Like many other enterprising tech giants, Google must accumulate massive amounts of personal data to monetize its services – and in the process, the company develops an astonishingly robust picture of what you’re all about.           Continue reading
