U.S. Democracy Is In Danger of Becoming Extinct Last Updated on 2018-06-28 23:01:58 The U.S. Democracy is in danger of becoming extinct. The enemy who has succeeded on the assault of our Democracy though is not some other nation or even terrorist organization. The chief enemy has been our own U.S. Supreme Court coupled with the Democratic Party’s ineptness to stand up to the number of attacks by the Court. As there is no opposition we now see GOP Supreme Court Justices going to political strategy sessions hosted by the Koch Brothers with no move to impeach them.   Consider the following events: 1. In December 2000 the Supreme Court without precedent or any legally cited authority told the State of Florida that they could not continue with their recount in the Presidential Election between Gore & Bush. As a result of this decision we had the Iraq War and George Bush appointing both John Roberts and Samuel Alito. Two conservative Justices were added... More »

Future's Workshop With Joe Tankersley Last Updated on 2018-03-29 15:34:39 Futures Workshop This interactive workshop will introduce participants to the tools of strategic foresight and share methods for using futures thinking as a way to create more robust strategies for sustainable tourism. Strategic foresight traces its origins to the work of systems thinking pioneers like the Rand Corporation in the days following the second world war. The same techniques were further developed by NASA’s Futures Team in the early 70s as a way to help the organization reimagine its future after the end of the Apollo program. Since then futures teams have been created for global businesses, national governments, and nonprofits.

Pakistan Global Healing 2017 Annual Report Last Updated on 2018-03-28 13:46:06       ANNUAL REPORT 2017 GLOBAL HEALING INITIATIVE LAHORE PAKISTAN submitted by Patras Dewan   PREFACE:   FORCEFULLY CONVERSION TO ISLAM IN PAKISTAN:   The abuses of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws are some of the starkest examples of persecution in Pakistan. They have been devastating for minorities, including Christians, who must always act with caution in case an allegation of blasphemy is raised to settle a personal score. This year, a blasphemy case was brought against a boy for simply responding to a cartoon about Islam on social media.   Society in general is becoming increasingly Islamic in Pakistan, and Christians make up just 2 percent of the population. There are reports of Christians being treated aggressively simply for wearing a cross, and cars with Christian stickers are more likely to be stopped by the police. But... More »
