Miembros de Blackwater defienden una posición junto a soldados estadounidenses en Najaf, Irak, en 2004. Después de varios escándalos por violaciones de derechos humanos, la compañía fue rebautizada Xe y posteriormente Academi.

Hay industrias que a pesar de la crisis económica no se cansan de crecer. Aunque el desempleo es alarmante en Estados Unidos, en internet no es difícil toparse con un anuncio como este: “Se busca estadounidense para hacer tareas en Afganistán como guardia armado y proporcionar seguridad en lugares específicos”.


El portal de Triple Canopy no especifica cuánto ofrece, pero sí asegura que “todo el tiempo hay nuevas oportunidades”. La empresa hace parte de una cantidad de contratistas privados que venden l…

The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1979, is often described as an international bill of rights for women. 

By accepting the Convention, States commit themselves to enact legal reforms and undertake a series of measures to end discrimination against women in all its forms.
This event will explore the critical role that CEDAW has played in promoting the empowerment of women and girls in developing countries, resulting in concrete advances for societies worldwide. 

Join international policymakers, country representatives, and NGO leaders to discuss the way forward in tackling gaps in women's voice, agency, participation and access to justice--key dimensions identified in the 2012 World Development Report on Gender Equality and Develop…

INTERESTING COMBO: Saudi Aircargo to Link Vietnam via Hong Kong & Frankfurt to midddle east....

Saudi Cargo to start new Vietnam service
Jeddah: Sun, 04 Mar 2012










Saudi Airlines Cargo has announced plans to launch its new B747 freighter flight from Saigon, Vietnam, starting from March 25 in combination with its Hong Kong service.



The airline will operate twice a week linking Vietnam with the Middle East and Frankfurt, according to a senior official.

Did anybody notice that the food supply was "Occupied" on February 27th ??? ...

Occupy Our Food Supply is bringing together the Occupy, sustainable farming, food justice, buy local, slow food, and environmental movements for a global day of action on February 27, 2012. Inspired by the theme of CREATE/RESIST, thousands will come together to creatively confront corporate control of our food supply and take action to build healthy, accessible food systems for all.

Industrial agribusiness corporations like Cargill, Monsanto, ADM and Dupont have gained runaway control of our food systems and to take them back, we'll need all the collective power we can manifest around the world. There are few things more personal than the food we put into our bodies every day. Let's ensure that we can stand by the food we eat from farm to fork.

New South Wales, Australia flooding turns deadly ...

Floodwaters kill 43-year-old man in New South Wales as towns are evacuated due to heavy rainfall.

Last Modified: 04 Mar 2012 18:06








Many residents of parts of New South Wales have had to leave their homes because of the flash floods [EPA]

A man who was swept down a swollen creek became the first casualty from floods inundating Australia's New South Wales state as hundreds more people were evacuated due to heavy rainfall.

Swathes of the state have been battling flooding for several days although the rain that has dumped up to 200 millimetres of water was forecast to ease by Monday.

"People have been asked to leave their homes overnight as intense rainfall fell in southern and southeastern parts of the state," Murray Kear, the state emergency service commissioner, told reporters on Sunday.

"But just as we're standing under sunny skies (on the outskirts of Sydney), they will be under sunny skies tomorrow."

The body of a 43-year-old man was recovered after he and two …
