Can Asthma Medicine Reduce the Risk of Parkinson Disease?

3 years after three time world champion boxer Muhammed Ali retired from boxing, he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1984. He died in July of 2016.

Women in Media and The #MeToo Movement

10 years ago, a black activist named Tarana Burke started a movement in order to encourage females to be empowered through empathy. When the Harvey Weinstein case emerged, it brought with it a surge of emotions that had been laying dormant in women all over the world. These women had been quiet for far too long. Burke wanted to get one thing clear and that was that almost every woman on the face of the earth, no matter what minority or majority she belongs to, has been a victim of sexual assault and/or harassment at least once in her lifetime.

Kunduz massacre

Kunduz Massacre: Ploy To Grab Afghanistan’s Mineral Riches?

They say that the smallest coffins are the heaviest. Before you decide to deny this, imagine how you would feel in the shoes of those who have had to bury their young before themselves. Every parent wants to wake up and send their child to school early in the morning for something as special as a Graduation Day. Sounds pretty special, doesn’t it? Every parents dreams of the day their child graduates from middle school or high school but never in their wildest dreams do they picture their child coming home in pieces.

Where is Kunduz?

Kunduz is located close to the Afghan Border that connects to Tajikistan. This city widely became famous once it was overtook by the Taliban in September of 2015 once NATO’s ISAF was led by the US. Since 2015, Kunduz has seen many dark days but it was only in April of 2018 that it saw the darkest day that it had ever seen.

Graduation or Funeral?

On April 12th, Kunduz Province in Afghanistan suffered through a deadly school massacre that killed and injured many innocent young souls. This school was an education center to many kids under the age of 10. It was graduation day in this school in Dasht-e-Archi District of Kunduz Province when the United States bombed not only the school but also the homes of several innocent civilians which ended up killing over 250 Afghan/Pashtun kids, teachers, parents and villagers. This is nothing new for the people living in these villages as war crimes like the Kunduz massacre have become a dangerous norm for them.

On February 24th of 2018, U.S forces bombed yet another school and civilian homes in the village of Bala Baluk in the Farah Province of Afghanistan killing over 10 civilians and children. And before that on November 20th of 2017, several Afghani villagers reported 21 students including children massacred by the United States Special Ops in alliance with the Afghan Puppet Administration from the Maidan Wardak Province.

REEs More Important Than Innocent Children

United States General Nicholson tells the media that these airstrikes taking place in Afghanistan are targeted towards drug labs and has more to do with controlling REEs than terrorism. But if the complete facts of the case remain hidden from the general populace, how much of it can we really believe?

Afghanistan’s lands holds many treasures along with copper, iron, cobalt, sulfur, lead, barite, silver, zinc and niobium. But what really matters to the United States government is that Afghanistan’s land holds 1.4 million tons of REEs which is short for rare-earth elements. These deposits are vast and potentially untapped which explains why foreign governments are so attracted to it. These are situated near the Helmand Province in Afghanistan among other places and that is precisely why the U.S government cannot leave it alone.

Media Turns a Blind Eye to the Kunduz Massacre

Whatever happens in Afghanistan goes vastly unnoticed by the media eye and that is why most people never find out about chemical attacks and such. The attack that took place on April 12th in Kunduz that is now being referred to as the Kunduz Massacre was only one in a list of many things the Afghan Pushtuns have had to suffer through.

Wouldn’t You Do The Same?

Why the Afghan Pushtuns, you ask? They are the sole barrier standing in the way of Trump and the richness of Afghanistan’s lands. They are fiercely fighting to protect their land. So the theory so far is that the United States government is bombing their villages to get rid of their road blocks, so to speak.

We Condemn It

But at what cost, I ask? These innocent souls, what was their fault that they had to die this way? These illegal attacks must stop. The people who are responsible for committing attacks like the Kunduz massacre should be legally tried for their actions. If in a court of law, they can prove themselves, only then should they walk free. But anyone who harms innocent children, should not be considered one of us and most certainly should not be in a position of authority.

Rape Pakistan Girls

Rape, Torture, and Murder: Are Girls in Pakistan Safe?

When we look at our children, we see hope for a future that is yet to come. Regardless of the things we have seen in our lives, we want the future generation to have a safe and sheltered life that is free from all kinds of harm. The only trouble a child should ever have is deciding who toy to play with. But when you come across cases of rape and murder, this time of a 7-year-old, it breaks your faith in humanity. It makes you realize that not everyone out there has the same thoughts and the same heart as you. Where you want to protect the young and innocent, there are people out there in the world who would do unspeakable things to them and destroy them forever for the world.

When we think about our daily lives, it doesn’t seem possible to live without technology.

Websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat have so much dominance over us and we have allowed it to the point of becoming numb.
