IDN-InDepth NewsAnalysis

BERLIN (IDN) – They have long disappeared from the scene, those hundreds of thousands of peace activists who call for the removal of atomic arsenal from German territory. They dominated the political landscape when NATO, the western military alliance, officially installed nuclear weapons in Germany at the height of the Cold War nearly 30 years ago. Today, those participating in peace demonstrations can be counted by the dozens.

State-Business Relations Trigger Growth in Africa

Dirk Willem te Velde*, 21.09.2010 07:24

IDN-InDepth NewsViewpoint

LONDON (IDN) - Recent media coverage suggests brightening prospects for Africa, with some commentators discussing whether it could become the next BRIC. Indeed, the sub-Saharan African economy is scheduled to grow by 5 per cent this year and 6 per cent next, after a meagre 2 per cent in 2009, a year hampered by plummeting trade and investment and reduced aid and remittances. Some argue current growth prospects have been inflated by rising commodity prices and the growing trade and investment links between Africa and emerging markets, notably China.

FLASHBACK: Dialog Among Civilizations – Whytalksfail When Hectoring Hegemons Are Running It? By Zahir Ebrahim

Project Humanbeingsfirst.org, 20.09.2010 17:16

What is the point of this dialog analysis and all this verbage? The point is a matter of life and death for nations. That is the point of this. Let me be very precise. Either the United States, or Israel, are poised to attack Iran, as noted by many commentators in the World press,... This is March 2007. I have two imperatives before me: A) I do not wish to hear in 2010 that there was an “intelligence failure”, that it was another Gulf of Tonkin, or some other new contrivance from the imaginative and fertile mind of the hectoring hegemons.

Physical description based on either formulas or (epicycle) probabilities

m concoyle, 19.09.2010 17:18

Physical description based on formulas defined on geometry vs. Physical description of systems composed of a small number of particles being based on probability, and arbitrariness.

Physical description within a math structure which is analogous to classical physics and which is not an extension of the epicycle math that characterizes quantum physics, where quantum physics separates measurable properties from the domain space within which these properties are observed.
In the new descriptive language physically measurable properties are (again) given formulas (as in classical physics) in the variables which are defined by the system’s containing space, where the formulas are based on geometry, instead of observed measurable properties defining probability spaces (as in quantum physics).

Should physical description seek a (new) context in which linear local relations and separable geometries are the basis for the language, or should the descriptive language of the physical world only be concerned with fitting data, in complicated mathematical epicycle structures which focus on probabilistic descriptions? That is, in probability-epicycle based physical descriptions physical properties are separated from the space within which they are observed, eg formulas for physical properties, such as energy, no longer exist for quantum systems, ie physical properties (which are not classical properties) are now (2010) only associated to probabilities within quantum descriptions?



The Khimki Hostages Need Your Solidarity!

Campaign for the Release of the Khimki Hostages (khimkibattle.org), 19.09.2010 16:38

Free Them! Activists in Russia are calling on the world to support them in their campaign to secure the release of Alexei Gaskarov and Maxim Solopov, two Moscow antifascists who were arrested the day after a demonstration in the Moscow suburb of Khimki, where activists and residents were battling this summer to save the local forest from being cut down to make way for a toll highway. The police arrested Gaskarov and Solopov because they are public spokesmen of the antifascist movement. If tried and convicted, they could face seven years in prison.

Düsseldorf: Schülerproteste gegen Bundeswehr

Hans-Georg Wichman, 18.09.2010 17:59

BW NEIN DANKE "Wir raten den Schülern zu öffentlichen Protesten" ... NRW-Landesregierung ist wenig geneigt, das Kooperationsabkommen mit der Bundeswehr zu kippen. Ein Gespräch mit Robin Cramer - Mitglied des Vorstandes der LandesschülerInnenvertretung NRW. ..... Die neue Landesregierung von SPD und Grünen in Nordrhein-Westfalen könnte die 2008 unterzeichnete Kooperationsvereinbarung  http://www.ag-friedensforschung.de/themen/Schule/nrw.pdf zwischen dem Schulministerium und der Bundeswehr kippen. Die Betonung liegt auf »könnte« - warum müßte sie das aus Ihrer Sicht tun? Die Vereinbarung erleichtert der Bundeswehr den Zugang in die Klassenzimmer. Jugendoffiziere - rhetorisch und didaktisch geschulte jüngere Militärs - sollen Schülerinnen und Schüler über Sicherheitspolitik aufklären. Natürlich nur über deren militärische Aspekte. Über friedliche und zivile Wege der Konfliktlösung klärt die Bundeswehr hingegen nicht auf - den jungen Menschen soll vielmehr das politische Instrument »Militär« nahegelegt werden.

WE DID IT! ALL the members of the World Conference of Mayors can celebrate their success and acknowledge their contribution. You can view and/or download that letter here. We are now moving forward in a meaningful way to secure financial, subsistence, construction and medical aid and support for the next mission which will take place as soon as we can unite to raise the necessary items just mentioned. If we can tap into the resources of the USAIDS and the National Medical Association we can make great progress in securing bi-weekly missions to various needed areas around the World! Let us move forward!



District Attorney Investigates City Attorneys John Russo, Jayne Williams, Meyers Nave Corruption Complaint

Martin Silverman, 18.09.2010 09:15

Nowtruth Logo After a number of faxes, the filing of a formal complaint against City Attorney’s John Russo of Oakland and Jayne Williams of San Leandro and their City Attorney’s office administrations including the law firm of Meyers Nave, on June 7, 2010 and several conversations with the Alameda County District Attorney office, District Attorney Nancy O’Malley assigned the case to Assistant District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy. After his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, he has decided to assign the case for investigation. One of the areas discussed for investigation is that of jurisdiction since the complaint also involves actions on the part of the D. A., their prior open court admission of fraud injuring al-Hakim and his family in another matter, though they should be able to be separated without consequence or compromise. It is somewhat complicated by the fact that the D. A. feels that the complaint rightfully belongs back with the United States Attorney General Eric Holder, who’s office had it originally under A. G. Alberto Gonzalez. al-Hakim rejected that notion, been there, done that, going back already! al-Hakim opposed that theory as “kicking the can down the road to avoid their responsibility to investigate and prosecute their friends and themselves” because al-Hakim already has that prong in his attack and would not allow the D. A. off the hook that easily with a self-serving excuse. Another D. A. close to al-Hakim separately proposed to have the Grand Jury handle the investigation only to face the same rationale.

This meeting comes on the heels of the Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley assigning the case to Deputy District Attorney Kevin Dunleavy whom after his review and several more conversations with al-Hakim, decided to assign the case for investigation. al-Hakim has presented uncontested, irrefutable, uncontroverted evidence that the Parties named herein have committed CORRUPTION, COLLUSION, CONSPIRACY, EXTRINSIC FRAUD, FRAUD UPON THE STATE, SUBORNATION AND SOLICITATION OF PERJURIOUS TESTIMONY, PROVIDING LITIGATION CASE FILES AND EVIDENCE TO DEFENDANTS, SPOLIATION OF EVIDENCE, FABRICATING EVIDENCE AND PLANTING FABRICATED EVIDENCE IN LITIGATION CASE FILES , ATTEMPTING TO DECEIVE THE PUBLIC IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANTS LITIGATION THEORY, CALUMNY DECEIT.



Brussels: Stop Precarity, Fuck Austerity

On September 29-30, Brussels, the EU capital, will be in the eye of
the storm. The no border camp will already be in full action. It's
attracting activists from all over Europe fighting against the
detention and persecution of immigrants in Europe and the deportation
of Roma people out of France and Italy, which the Vice-President of
the Commission has said it reminded her of WWII ethnic cleansing. The
Great Recession is leading to the scapegoating of migrants, in order
to bolster élites whose legitimacy is fast decreasing.



A Pound of Flesh: post 9/11 racism at an American university

Sudhama Ranganathan, 18.09.2010 06:35

In 1989 racial atrocities in South Africa were front and center issues. Hip Hop groups like Public Enemy, The X-Clan and B.D.P were giving voice to the racial tensions young minorities, like me, were becoming aware of at home. The hypocrisy of the we're all Americans and are treated equally message being pimped to us on TV and the conditions I saw my African American friends living in and the racism I saw them dealing with here in the U.S. ripped me apart like angry dog's teeth.

911 and Imperial Mobilization Redux By Zahir Ebrahim

Project Humanbeingsfirst.org, 17.09.2010 22:27

Please circulate — 911 and Imperial Mobilization Redux Hello – Please circulate my newest exposition geared towards the mainstream ‘United We Stand’ crowd who know something is wrong in America, but can’t put their finger on it, and also don’t wish to tread into the ‘conspiracy’ jungle where only forensic knowledge and deep intelligence lurks. It has always been a problem how to explain complex matters to the “crowd of simpletons and the credulous” (Mein Kampf). The war-mongers use incessant propaganda to get them to ‘United We Stand’. How can one undo that? Ignoring the ‘Uncle Toms’ and the co-opted, here is my commonsensical Socratic attempt to (once again) try and reach the vast majority of good peoples who trusted their government: http://bloghumanbeingsfirst.wordpress.com/2010/09/16/911-and-imperial-mobilization-redux-by-zahir-ebrahim/ Thank you.
