Mohamed Ali: The link between unemployment and terrorism
Terrorism is a job opportunity too. Someone is paying for being terrorist. We know someone is supplying the weapons instead of tools for farming. And everyone chooses the best job that allows them to survive best. Why would I choose to do farming and allow some marauding gangsters with weapons to exploit or steal from me. I would have better survival if I join the gangsters to torture and kill others. In japan for example, many have chosen to not waste time on looking for a good paying job or work hard. Why should they? Instead they have chosen to stay at home and eat what is available from their parents. They just play electronic games which do not need more physical energy. This is another form of survival too. In Africa the smart guy did not join the Government created jobs. Instead they joined those supplying weapons and also created new central bank to print easy money. That country is Libya. So, in conclusion, do not assume that people become terrorist because they were unemployed. Terrorist is THE employment available in those countries. In Indonesia there are more then 200 million poor people. But you do not see terrorist simply because nobody is providing that employment.

Overpopulation cannot cause death by starvation, because the human body has a mechanism to prevent starvation death when food is limited.
Bedouins live in deserts, Eskimos live in icy land. I can give you many such examples where humans have learned to live within limited resources. Starvation is last days of living without food. Malnutrition is living with limited variety of food. Do not underestimate the will of humans to survive and the ability to search for food. Humans are today only limited on this ability by artificial borders created and manned by military forces and wars. I have seen people in India drinking water directly from water wells and stay healthy while me and my colleagues from developed countries got diarrhea and stomach pain within 2 days of drinking that same water. The bodies of these fantastic people have better immunity to whatever inside that water while our own body from advanced civilization does not. India is indeed a big place but assuming there is starvation and making policy based on such assumption is just bad policy. Western civilization kill everything and live happily. Yes. But this people have learned and adapted their body to live among all living things including bacteria and virus and what not. I have seen women pouring milk into snake pits and pray that it does not harm their family. They do not even kill snakes. We should not use our limited knowledge in medical science to apply theories to people who have had a longer civilization that survives difficult conditions. And if our climate science is true than we may all soon face problems with food supply and difficult conditions soon. We can learn a few things from this great people. Let's not be arrogant.

Jackson Katz: Violence against women—it's a men's issue
Have anyone heard of a man beating a women or women beating a man? Yeah plenty. Have you witnessed anyone doing it? Not many. Now, have anyone investigated any one such incident? I am sure NO! We all read from news, and magazines. My problem with this issue is that there too many generalizations. I can fully agree with what Katz is saying, that many issues are discussed from a biased angle where gender becomes women's' issue etc. But the real question we should be asking is, why discuss a matter in generalized way. If you say gender violence, you tend to take many unique incidents and put into this one idea so that you can discuss. Otherwise you will be discussing an incident and not an issue, Katz also mentions about the various reasons that man may have for the violence. But how can you discuss the many reasons and come to a conclusion? Or is the purpose of such discussion is to have many conclusions? I can say that the purpose of all discussions is to generalize various incidents and provide superficial solutions so that well to do people who have the time and money to waste can pretend that they have solved some important problem. That is exactly what Katz is talking about. we generalize everything and narrow the discussions so we can talk about something. So instead of saying "john beat his wife jane". We say, "Jane was beaten" more simple is it not. Discussing one jane instead of about 2 person. After all we are rich and have time to kill. We do not need to make things difficult for ourselves by trying to really understand each incident and the possible relations between all gender violence.

think and have fun: i want perople to think of their existance and think themselves why they are alive.
I used to ask this question to myself. I went into very deep depression. And finally I concluded as follows: We are alive only to serve a particular purpose at any given point. But the purpose itself is more like that of a ball in a billiard or snooker game. The ball is hit and hits other balls. It is just action and reaction. Who controls the game is not known to the balls. We are about the same. I have searched for that powerful man who controls the world. And I found that nobody actually controls nothing. Even the most powerful person is controlled by circumstances beyond his own control. All of us are just balls being played. The purpose of living is to be hit and react within your abilities. (like weight and shape of a ball).

Hans Rosling: Religions and babies
I love the way the arguments are made here. Great wonderful minds. I have my own 2 cents worth of comment, based on my own observation. Humans always normally to family planning on their own and count their children. Humans who do not do family planning have no choice or need the higher number of children. It is clearly observed in various communities in various countries. A poor women, begging in the streets in India tend to have more children. Her reason, is that she now has more hands to collect alms. She also have a higher chance of survival (as a species) even if many of her children die of disease or malnutrition. (which she expects anyway). Any plans to reduce the fertility of this women is in my opinion inhuman. Instead all you have to do is give her a better life with hope for the future. She will automatically reduce her needs for larger family. You can observe that in most advanced countries and also in ASEAN countries where families often have only one kid. The Chinese could learn a few things from this. So, in my own way, I support Rebecca Daimes that there are always better smarter solutions than direct population control. The facts are all there to observe. Statistics are ..... always pretending to be truth.

I have travelled across India. looking for starvation. I hope to soon travel across Africa in search of the same. Let me tell you what I found in India. There is NO starvation. There is plenty of malnutrition. But never starvation. I tried to ask my friends who have gone to Africa about starvation. Well almost all agree that starvation in Africa is mainly due to wars. Starvation was due to disruption of supply channels and hoarding of food mainly by warring parties. Do take this into consideration. Maybe the only thing we need to do is avoid any forms of war on any reason. People will always find a way to eat. and slowly also solve the malnutrition problems. The human spirit is always strong. It can only be disrupted by inhuman behavior during wars.
