It is very interesting to me that there are people running around today saying that a free education is not possible. But maybe it still is.

HEALTH CARE – A PAST & CURRENT OVERVIEW

There is evidence that Chiropractic services were available in Ancient Egypt as were Psychological services as well, so we are not necessarily talking about something new or unknown or un-proven.

Notoriously Racist New York Post Boycotted By Yemeni-American merchants For Islamophobic Ilhan Omar Front-page

AS EAST AFRICA CYCLONE RECOVERY BEGINS: SHOULD WE RED-LINE THE RED CROSS?

It's like clockwork; the press reports a disaster - natural or man-made - and millions of dollars pour into the coffers of the American Red Cross (ARC).  Usually, they don't even have to ask for the donations.  A sympathetic public gives.  Rightly or wrongly, the ARC's reputation precedes them. Now, as the East Africa/Cyclone Idai recovery is picking up steam,...
