The demonstration and march, organized by a coalition of groups supporting justice in Palestine, began at Foley Sq. where the names of children murdered in Gaza were read.  Some in the crowd of approximately 2,000 were weeping.  Led by the Rude Mechanical Orchestra the mile and 1/2 march weaving west through the busy streets of lower Manhattan to the shore of the Hudson began.  It was a noisy chanting group carrying Palestinian flags and signs demanding an end to the U.S. funding of Israel, an end to the occupation, and a cease to the slaughter by Israel in Gaza.

72 Uses For Common Household Items

Originally posted on spydersden:

People have been using common substances like citrus juices, oils and vinegars for cooking, as household cleaners and personal grooming products, for centuries, and many of the store bought products we buy everyday use these items as their core ingredients.

However, these store bought products also contain chemicals and toxins we’re better off leaving on the store shelves, and using core ingredients also means saving money.

This simple yet informative chart takes household products back to the old school, showing dozens of great uses for everyday products like baking soda, white vinegar and coconut oil.

The chart is missing amount recommendations for each use, but they’re pretty easy to figure out with a little help from Google.

“Israelis” calling for genocide

Mahdi Nazemroaya noted:

“People need to listen to Israeli Hebrew-speaking media and read Haaretz. Listen to what most Israeli officials and politicians are saying. They are openly talking abut genocide, killing all Arabs, and even raping Palestinian women systematically…

The current state of Israel is not the real Israel and has nothing to do with the Torah or Judaism and most the current Israelis are not the descendants of the Israelites of the past — let alone Semites —- or even practicing Judaism.

There is also major media censorship about the tens of thousands of practicing Jews that have held marches in opposition to Israel and who refuse to recognize this “Israel” as a Jewish State. Why is this not being reported? Because it would make people question the claims of this “Israel” and the religious criteria it presents for its justification.

Those practicing Jews opposed to Israel —…

Homeless cleared from London streets: But many face long stays in waiting areas

David Goddard spent four weeks sleeping on the floor at one of the three No Second Night Out hubs in London. The target length of stay is 72 hours.

A few weeks ago I wrote about David Goddard, a young homeless man who was released from prison and spent a number of weeks in accommodation known as the hub in Lewisham, South East London. The hub is a place which takes in new rough sleepers, and is run by an organisation called No Second Night Out (NSNO). NSNO was set up in 2011 by Mayor of London Boris Johnson as part of an agenda to end rough sleeping in London by 2012. The Greater London Authority (GLA) pays for the stays. The idea is to stop the homeless spending a second night on the street and to prevent them becoming entrenched there. There are two other NSNO hubs in London…

India’s record in women’s participation in the workforce is depressing

Originally posted on Quartz:

India ranks the second lowest in the Group of 20 (G20) economies when it comes to women’s participation in the workforce, according to a report published by aid group Oxfam this month. It is above only Saudi Arabia, a country that does not allow its women to drive.

That is bad enough, but it doesn’t end there.

When it comes to women’s economic participation, India’s position seems fixed at the bottom even when we compare it to the entire world and not just the 20 major economies. It ranks 124 out of 136 nations, according to a World Economic Forum (WEF) report from last year.

All the BRICS nations rank much higher than India. The 12 countries below India include countries riven by political instability, such as Pakistan, Egypt and Syria.

India is one of the few countries where the rate of participation of women in the workforce has drastically declined in…
