Charles Bukowski

Henry Charles Bukowski (born Heinrich Karl Bukowski; August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994) was a German-born American poet, novelist and short story writer.                                      

UAE paying men to marry women over 30

The government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has decided to pay men to marry women who are over 30 and therefore considered too old to be single by UAE standards. The Gulf state is facing a serious demographic problem with over 60 per cent of single women being over the age of 30. The Federal National Council (FNC), the country’s consultative body, is extremely concerned. FNC member Said al-Kitbi said in an interview with Agence France Presse that: “this is very worrying, there are now more than 175,000 Emirati women who are over 30 and unmarried.” The real problem,…

Canadian Missing Women Inquiry plagued by scandals

Dozens of Canadian women, mostly sex workers and aboriginals, started going missing in the early 70s. Then in the 90s, a new cluster of missing cases provoked friends and families to start asking questions about the lack of arrests. After many marches, vigils and protests, the Canadian government finally decided to open a public inquiry last October, called the Missing Women Inquiry. But earlier this month, 15 groups, announced their decision to boycott the policy forums next month of the flawed inquiry in an open letter to Commissioner Wally Oppal. Since it was set up, the commission has been beset…

America’s Bargained Democracy

Alison Stanger wrote “knock on the door of the Federal Government in 2009, chances are that you will find nobody at home” in her recently published book One Nation Under Contract. The staggering scope of privatization of our government’s services and duties started by Eisenhower and accelerated with George W. Bush, has created a shadow government that in size has neverbefore been seen in the history of industrialized world. Federal contracting of every imaginable government service, from prisons to census to tallying up our taxes-and many more-engorged the outsourcing-industrial complex in a way that now Americans have virtually next to no…

The United Nations To Investigate The US Government’s Treatment Of Native Americans (Interview)

-This interview was conducted on May 20th, 2012- This year, for the first time in the history of the United Nations, the UN has decided to open an investigation on the US Government’s former and current treatment of Native Americans. The country’s estimated 2.7 million Native Americans live in federally established tribal areas called Reservations which are plagued with unemployment, alcoholism, high suicide rates and other social problems.

She worked as an area manager, a position largely held by men in the company. Initially the company paid Ledbetter equal to other male area managers, but by retirement, she was earning $3,727 per month compared to…

How the gas prices are manupilated by Koch Brothers and other Wall Street players

Why are gas prices surging to levels unseen since the 2008 oil spike again while the oil companies report record profits? Much of the problem is actually created by Wall Street traders here in the USA who gamble on oil prices, and powerful multinational companies that manipulate the supply and demand by stockpiling oil when the price is low and expected to rise in near future. And yes, so far this practice is perfectly legal. Chilton, a commissioner at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), the federal agency that regulates commodity futures and option trading in the United States, says…

Corporate Psychopaths, Global Financial Crises, not so implausible

A nascent British Marketing Professor Clive Boddy has been studying the effects of Corporate Psychopaths over the past five years. In November of 2011 he has publicized his findings in his book “Corporate Psychopaths: Organizational Destroyers.” His book presents empirical research that corporate psychopaths can destroy companies, entire industries, even cause global financial crisis. He says people who are categorized as psychopaths, which are approximately 1% of the population, have no conscience or empathy and do not care for anyone other than themselves. And when they advance to executive levels in large corporations it is a disaster waiting to happen….
