‘Rebuilding is part of our resistance’: how Ukraine is bringing Bucha back to life | Ukraine | The Guardian

The town infamous for a massacre at hands of Russia has become a symbol of Ukraine’s reconstruction effort, but experts say the influx of money from the west will bring challenges in such a corrupt country


What is really required is Russia out of all areas of Ukraine, so all of Ukraine can be brought back to life.

Russia or really Putin needs to be dealt with, but his stangle hold on Russia is so strong, currently, lets do hope for not much longer.

He abuses his assumed power like no other.

He has and is committing War Crimes like no others and while he is around no one is safe either in Russia or out of Russia.

Afghan war pilot hero: Moment my wife said ‘Flee for your life!’ and I began dangerous escape from Kabul to UK | The Independent

Exclusive: Pilot who fought with coalition forces, fled the Taliban and arrived here by small boat tells his amazing story – as clamour to stop his deportation grows


This is all so wrong and the UK needs to do so much more.

Anyone who put their lives and those of their families at risk should have no problems accessing the UK, so in these instances more safe routes have to be established.

As to the persons accessing in small boats why penalise them, when it should be the criminals who are using these people to make money. Journalists appear to be able to access these criminals so why not the legal authorities, could it be viewed that it is somewhat easier to go after the people coming in small boats than the criminals using these people.

It could be that Rishi is just doing a PR exercise to give some indication that the Government is doing something when in reality they know full well it will not be successful.

Let’s face it who really trust politicians, any politicians.

Endometriosis: black women continue to receive poorer care for the condition

Black women are half as likely to be diagnosed with endometriosis compared to white women.


This is so wrong, especially that studies have concluded that most, if not all Humans originated in now known Africa.

Then there was the formation of medical science, and the mistaken view that the more white a person is means they are more superior, which in many instances led to the slavery from Africa to the Americas in the 16th century. However, there were many instances of slavery from well before then.

Slavery led to the view that some people were more superior to others or that slaves were a commodity without Human Rights.

Could this be a legacy to how black women are viewed in some areas of the medical profession and perhaps other areas. Certainly in some areas of America black persons are not viewed as being equal to white persons, even to this day and many would bring back slavery if they could. But with the abolition of some of the Rights of Women in some states of America and the reversal of Roe v Wade, anything could be possible.

Rights of women, especially Black women need to be greatly improved, so the medical profession take this seriously, but this needs to be seriously taken in very many areas,

Women are just as equal as men and anywhere that this is not so needs to be changed urgently.

Trump’s verbal assaults pose risks to prosecutors and could fuel violence | Donald Trump | The Guardian

Trump has resorted to ‘incendiary rhetoric’ to deter investigations and to rile up his base, experts say, and shows no sign of letting up


Trump is fighting for his political life and it can be assumed he is far from sure he will obtain it through the US democratic voting process, so he is appealing to his supporters to rise and obtain it through mob violence.

If there is any justice left in America then Trump should not succeed in any approach he uses, but have we have seen in some instances America is predictable, hence the ‘gun lobby and others it is not.

Unfortunately some of the Trump supporters have nothing left to believe in, except the retoric of Trump.

If Trump does eventually succeed receiving the Repblican canditure for the Presidency and then become the President for another, then ‘God’ help us all, not just America but the whole World.

We all saw how he left America after his previous term as President and while there as been some recovery, the damage he caused will take some time to reverse. With another term any damage caused may not be possible to reverse for there maybe no World left.

These are very dangerous times for us all and certainly in America all Human Rights will be removed.

Opinion | The AR-15 and other assault rifles should be banned – The Washington Post

A Post investigation underscores the dangers of this weapon of war.


This is all so true and strengthens the belief that many Americas are still in the mindset of the Wild West. Europeans invaded what is now known as America starting from the 15th century but this was more so during the 18th. I say invaded as they were not invited by the indigenous people who populated the area of America from around 15,000 BC.

In the 15th to 18th century it was done more by ignorance than arrogance, but today it is more arrogance than ignorance with the view of ‘gun culture’.

This gun culture was borne out of the invasion and more so with the onwards invasions into the more west of America. There they saw vast open lands which they assumed was for their taking, no thought was given to the indigenous people, except that these people were trying to stop their assumed right to invade and settle in these areas, but these lands had been populated by the indigenous people for 1000s of years.

The gun culture was cultivated and included in the American Constitution of 1789, but times have changed, but not the mindset of many Americans for they still believe in the right to bear arms, in the 2nd Amendment of which there appears to be a number of version, but this is the version ratified by Delaware and used by the Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller:

A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed

It was Influence of the English Bill of Rights of 1689, but since then the UK has become more enlightened on guns, which America has not.

Guns of today have progress so much since 1789 but not the mindset of some Americans, so they view they still have a right to say own a AR-15 as they did the much more simpler guns of 1789 but the AR-15 is so much more powerful and thereby so much more destructive. To some extent it could be seen that a AR-15 be used in some sporting context, but surely not for use by any individual for any means they wish to and certainly not to massacre innocent civilians of which there has been 130 incidents so far this year.

Surely some alterations to the gun culture are required, perhaps not to ban guns completely for non-military and non-sporting use, but surely the types relating to AR-15 should be considered. Not to do so will only mean the extent of mass shootings will considerably increase so much more than the 647 in 2022 and many more innocent civilians children and adults will be injured and more so killed.

The arrogance certainly needs to be curtailed for ignorance is no excuse. Yes, there is the right to own guns, but surely this should be superceded by the right to life which has been denied to many innocents killed in America.

Trump wants to be handcuffed for court appearance in Stormy Daniels case, sources say | Donald Trump | The Guardian

People close to former president said to be unsure whether he is serious about wanting to do a perp walk


Trump will only do what he feels is best for him and most likely is completely unaware of the enormity of this case and all the others to follow.

He has used his assumed fame and his supposed wealth for his own benefit wherever he has been allowed to and in many instances where he has not been.

Over his lifetime and those of his father and grandfather they have assumed that they can control and are above the Law, as though the law is insignificant.

Whereas it is Trump who really needs to be worried for it appears all his actions are coming home to roost. Yes, his MAGA supporters will believe everything he tells them for they too are so blinded by Trump and are unable or unwilling to grasp reality.

Let’s so hope that with all that is coming for Trump this will be his eventual ending and in that all America and the World will be at last not have to hear from Trump ever again.

US state legislators propose death penalty for women who have an abortion | The BMJ

Republican legislators in South Carolina have proposed a bill to change the state’s laws, making a fertilised egg or embryo a person and charging a woman who has an abortion with murder, which carries a 30 year prison sentence or the death penalty. Henry McMaster, the state’s Republican governor, has said that he would sign anti-abortion regulations.


If I had seen this in some other publications I would have assumed it was ‘Fake News’, but about a State in America where common sense and human rights are being totally ignored.

With  the US Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade on 24 June 2022 it was a very retrograde step and now this action is leading to many more retrograde far reaching steps taking place.

The human rights of women which have been long fought for and are now being totally ignored as though women don’t have any rights at all. Much of this is down to the long held extreme religious views held in some states of America where women are being disregarded.

Where will it end, will it be that women will have no legal rights at all, lose the right to vote, a right to lead their own lives and be forced to be under the control of men as is the case in some countries in the Middle East, not allow girls to gain education and more.

These far right Christian religious views are in reality not much different to those of religious fanatics of other religions. Will these States be, in effect, no different to those of Iran and Afghanistan.

What will be the next could it be same sex marriage, LGBTQIA, racism and more.

In these States equality gains are being reversed just because of extreme Christian views, when really Christianity should be much more closer related to equality. These extreme Christians quote The bible, but only the texts which agree with their views and ignore any that don’t.

In the 21st century we are very much more enlightened than in the views and opinions in The Bible which it evidences, but the evidence was years dated when it occurred, if it did, to when it was inserted into The Bible. The Bible has been translated many times and some passages were passed down as folklore and is in some ways disproved in other areas of The Bible.

Times change and so do opinions, but not for religious fanatics of any religion.

Oklahoma votes down ban of corporal punishment on disabled children – The Washington Post

Arguing against a bill to bar the practice in public schools, Oklahoma Rep. Jim Olsen (R) quoted a Bible verse from Proverbs: “The rod and reproof give wisdom.”


Whether the Bible does or doesn’t support corporal punishment on disabled children or, in fact any children, is open to question, for it was created very many years ago well before any of the societies of today and has been translated many times.

It is a collection of many texts which include instructions, stories, poetry, and prophecies, among other genres and there is the old and new testiments all of which occurred before the Bible was created even the the intialial old testiment let alone the new testiment.

It is beliefs and opinions of the time they could have occurred and views and opinions have changed through the many passing of years and the knowledge of disabilities has greatly increased.

But Christianity is not the only religion living in views and opinions of yesteryears for this could be put to any religion. Anyone who quotes from any religious book to subvert the Human Rights of others is not understanding any of these changes in Socitey and picks and choses which old practices they wish to abide with and those they don’t.

So, just because it may appear that a religious book states something, which really it may not, only to the person quoting it for their own, maybe, assumed beliefs, does not make it right by any of today’s fought for human rights.

Human rights need to be respected so that civilised living can be maintained.

No one should be forced to conform with any extreme views of others for society is a collection of all our actions, views and opinions and not those of the extreme. For extreme views of anyone will only lead to the abuse of others.

Woman who lied about being raped and drove three men to suicide attempts is jailed – Mirror Online

WARNING – GRAPHIC IMAGES: Three men who were falsely accused of rape by Eleanor Williams told the court the allegations caused them to attempt to take their own lives – she was jailed today


Eleanor Williams with her false accusations has not only created major problems for those she falsely accused, but also made it much more difficult for others to bring accusations of sexual incidents.

It has never be easy to start to report such events for numerous reasons and when doing so few ever get to court, let alone being proven.

Now with Eleanor Williams more likely fewer people will report due to them feeling by this case they will not be believed.

Eleanor has caused so much damage and distress not just for now, but for many years to come, so is an eight and a half years sentence sufficient, I say not has she has created a life-time sentence for many, so the eight and a half years needs to be considerably increased.

Six myths about learning disabilities and OKUs | Malay Mail

Dr Chua Sook Ning expressed concern about the stigmatisation of mental disorders and blanket statements that people with OKU cards shouldn’t drive. ― Picture courtesy of Dr Chua Sook Ning


While this is relating to Malaysia its content could relate to anywhere for myths are myths wherever they arise.

In the instances described the myths are mainly derived through ignorance  and in some instances to discriminate and not from known facts.

In days gone by it would have been difficult for information to be found to discount the myths, but in these days with the internet, as long as the information is from a very reliable source they can be discounted and so the discriminations should reduce. But some of these myths are very strongly supported by some, so great care is needed to differentiate what is myth and what is truth.
