contemporary civilization collapses when the majority of its
institutions, ministers and political choices and actions turn out to
be harmful to the economy, education, health, justice and social
incompetence, falseness, lie, delirium, fanaticism, hypocrisy,
weakness, presumption, arrogance, totalitarianism and other similar
aspects are the only qualities that represent the Italian Prime
Minister and all his pool of Ministers.
Conte, the premier of Italy, whose arrogance and presumption clings,
as in a struggle in the mud, with his incompetence, who then in the
face of his own choices, actions and consequences, disastrous, points
the finger at the others, accuse and blame others. Here his feeling
of arrogance comes into play, at the highest levels, also calling on
the judiciary to help him fight against his own ghosts.
Conte, for these and other reasons, I would
iciHaiti – Politic : Site inspection tour
On the instructions of President Jovenel Moïse, the Prime Minister, Joseph Jouthe, carried out an inspection tour last week of the works of finishing and renovation of the premises to house the Central Hospital of the National Police (HCPN) in Bon Repos, then on the construction site of 600 housing units for the benefit of agents of the National Police of Haiti (PNH), in Delmas 33 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30182-haiti-politic-start-of-housing-construction-work-for-police-officers.html .
Accompanied by the Japanese Ambassador accredited to Haiti Mizuno Mitsuaki, members of the PNH High Staff and members of his cabinet, Jouthe urged Nader Joaséus the Minister of Public Works to instruct the National Directorate of Drinking Water and of Sanitation (DINEPA), as well as State Electricity of Haiti (EDH) to work hard to make this center operational very quickly.

As Artistic Director, Emma-Jane Greig works collaboratively with creatives to approach taboo socio-politic subject matter with an authentic flair for integrating narrative with Hip Hop movement.

The Body Politic was a Canadian monthly magazine, which was published from 1971 to 1987. It was one of Canada’s first significant gay publications, and played a prominent role in the development of the LGBT community in Canada.
The magazine was first published on November 1, 1971 by an informal collective, operating out of the home of Glad Day Bookshop owner Jearld Moldenhauer. Many members of the collective had been associated with the underground publication Guerilla, which had been relatively gay-friendly but alienated some of its LGBT contributors when it altered Moldenhauer’s article about the We Demand protest of August 28, 1971. At a September meeting of the
The New Year is a time of reflection and renewal. We look back on the past year — or in this case, the past decade — and we make resolutions for the year ahead.
What if our collective New Year’s resolution this year was not your traditional “go to the gym more,” but, rather, exercising the whole body politic? What would that workout plan look like?
Democracy is like a muscle. The more we exercise it, the stronger it gets. The more people engage in civil society, the more representative, responsive, and productive our society becomes. Like healthy muscles, a healthy democracy tends to have benefits too — better civil rights protections, a stronger social safety net, and a legal system that works for the many, not just the few.
Having lived in parts of the world where civil society is weak, I appreciate the extraordinary power that ordinary people
My review for this book was due last week, and when I realized I’d dropped the ball, I told the tour coordinator that I’d skim the book quickly and review it over the weekend. (Note: it’s the following Thursday as I type this) But I couldn’t. The book was too good to skim. Instead, I found myself reading more and more slowly, and putting it down to think about the characters, about what was happening and how their lives were evolving and developing. It’s a fantastic book–I was heavily invested in the characters and hated it to end.
The Body Politic deals with a lot of big issues–forgiveness, overcoming childhood traumas, the ups and downs of marriage, enduring friendships as people mature and change, our world and its politics–but what makes it sing is that fact that these issues surface the way they do in our own lives, through our
From the April 2016 issue of The Rotarian
Rotary clubs are catnip to people running for public office: Rotarians are involved in their communities, civic-minded, and engaged in public improvement. Especially in an election year, clubs are likely to receive calls from candidates in search of a receptive audience.
How a club responds to these requests is completely up to the club itself. For many, it depends on experience with politicians and the preferences of the club officers. Rotary International requires only that clubs not endorse candidates or take sides on public issues.
But the role of politics in Rotary has been debated since the organization’s earliest years. At the 1916 Rotary Convention, R.B. Campbell of Wichita, Kan., opined on how involved clubs should be in political (“civic”) affairs: “I believe that politics should be brought into the meetings,” he said. “We are a business organization, and it is to
If your political conversations on social media seem mechanical and predictable, it might be because you are debating with a robot.
A study published the day before the election found an estimated 400,000 bots operating on Twitter that were tweeting—and being retweeted—at a remarkable pace, generating nearly 20 percent of all election-related messages.
Besides being numerous, these bots are also quite influential, and capable of distorting the online debate, according to authors Alessandro Bessi and Emilio Ferrara of the University of Southern California Information Sciences Institute.
One thing remains mysterious: who is creating them? That’s still impossible to determine, Ferrara told MIT Technology Review in a discussion about his study, conducted over a month this fall, a period that included all three presidential debates. Below is an edited transcript.
In the study you measure the influence of bots, and find it to be surprisingly high. Can you explain
