Even much effort, and money were spent reducing poverty but the action is always relatively not effective. Among many factors the poor status of the development activities are also more responsible for the whole cause.
The fresh breeze coming out of my house gives me no reassurance.
Life is bewildering and has its toxic properties. I can't believe my friend was shot in the first place. I feel strange and lonely in the middle of a mob of people walking home in the evening after a day's work.

Repulsive statements recently made by Israel’s finance minister demonstrate how corrupt and irresponsible the Netanyahu government is and the damage that it has inflicted on Israel. This damage will endure as long as this extremist nationalist and messianic government remains in power.

My understanding is that an increased ability of any media is needed to initiate or seek changes in the existing socio-economic and political relationship.
And in the long term, collaborative efforts to reduce vulnerability must be attempted.

As in most wars, both sides of the one in Ukraine have predicted total victory month after month — with no evidence that either side has ever been remotely right about that.
The U.S. is establishing a seemingly permanent infrastructure for a forever war, the two most likely eventual endings of which are nuclear apocalypse or negotiated peace.
It is my trust, my principles and the discipline that allows me to like dance. I believe in love, like the sun is covered. When I chance to think about dancing and singing, I think we can't accept the dance in a meaningless way. We can't uplift ourselves beyond the definition of love and dance.
To feel loved in dance, belief towards our self could find destination and that is our dance.

More than one in every four new HIV infections in Asia Pacific were in the young people in the Asia Pacific region (in 2020). More worrying is that almost all of these new HIV infections in the young people, were among the young key populations. Writing on the wall is clear: unless we scale up HIV programmes and increase programme effectiveness for the young key populations, we will fail to end AIDS by 2030.

Gifts from the Fire: American Ceramics from the Collection of Martin Eidelberg, is worth a visit, at a minimum to appreciate the five pieces (four vases and a pitcher) from the hands of George E. Ohr (1857-1918), the self-proclaimed "Mad Potter of Biloxi.” While there are other pieces that capture the eye – the extraordinary glazes, and incandescent surfaces of Adelaide Also Robineau’s Three Vases (1905) come to mind – Ohr’s work is the jewel of the show.
