Military Confrontations – The US Elections Silent Issue


In two interviews – for RT’s Going Underground and Dennis Bernstein’s Flashpoints on Pacifica Radio in the US — John Pilger describes the dangers of confrontation between the United States and Russia, and between the US and China, and how a ‘conspiracy of silence’ has excluded vital debate from the US election campaign.

Video: Published on Jun 4, 2016 –  Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the outcome of whoever wins the White House in November.

Tony Cozier: Painting Cricket Pictures with Words – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Tony Cozier

Tony Cozier: He was the chap next door, the neighbor you could trust. But there is more. He was armed with a wealth of statistics that were stored in his memory bank. Each fragment contained bowlers, batsmen and fielders. We knew through him who kept the bowling tight and who were the master blasters. This icon gave life to dry numbers and left us wanting more. The passing of Tony Cozier has created a gash, a dent in the already deep wound that is West Indies cricket. In his final days he had become a trenchant critic of the administration of the game in the West Indies.

His writings ruffled the feathers and he dared to express what the ordinary person thought about the game. Tony wrote with fl air and an elegance that could only be derived as a student that sat at the feet of the cricket sages and was unafraid to speak his mind. For the fans cricket heaven was to have John Arlott, Brian Johnston, Trevor Bailey and Tony Cozier in the same box and with Freddie Trueman chiming in with ‘ I don’t know what is going on out there!’ For those that followed the fortunes of West Indies cricket it was Tony that told it in his unique style.

The Changing Face of Brampton, Ontario Canada – 2016

I live in a suburban Ontario town where the visible minorities are now the majority. Brampton – a.k.a. “Browntown,” “Bramladesh”or “Singhdale” – is just like the nicknames imply: mostly brown.

On our street of new semi-detached houses, I see brown and black families, mostly immigrants. Strip malls consist almost entirely of Indian-only grocers, stores selling fancy South Asian clothes and sweet shops. My drive home off Highway 427 is lined with palatial Sikh gurdwaras, a monumental Hindu mandir and a soon-to-be-built mosque – the only church in the area is a tiny historic landmark.
