Europe’s Migrant crisis: Tensions rise as Balkan path blocked

Top 10 origins of people applying for asylum in the EU

BBC News – 19 October 2015 –– Tensions are building among thousands of migrants heading north through Balkan states as their route to Western Europe is stalled by new controls.

VENEZUELA – Letter to the editor – By Eusi Kwayana

Dear Editor,

A situation fraught with danger arose in the Southern Caribbean when the Venezuelan government in its May decree sought to violate Guyana’s territorial integrity and by marshalling troops on our border sought to subdue us by intimidation.

Blue Sky for Black America – By Rosaliene Bacchus

Three Worlds One Vision

Book Cover - Blue Sky for Black America by Jesse Rhines

Book Cover: Blue Sky for Black America:
100 Years of Colored People in Western Utopian Literature
by Jesse Rhines Ph.D

The book, Blue Sky for Black America: 100 Years of Colored People in Western Utopian Literature, captured my interest as a lover of science fiction. Based on his early experience as an IBM Systems Engineer Trainee, the author Jesse Rhines applies IBM’s “blue sky” utopian approach to formulating its hundred-year projection in addressing urban hopelessness among underclass Black youth. He argues that hopelessness, a future oriented condition, requires a future oriented solution.

To facilitate this process, Rhines analyzes one hundred years of Western Utopian literature featuring Black Americans. Beginning with the pre-World War II period, he examines two classic futuristic novels by Edward Bellamy and Aldous Huxley. Blacks remain servants and are depicted as backwards, uncivilized, and rapists.
