Credible News Sources

Credible News Sources

Recently, Keith Olbermann, on his MSNBC news show, Countdown with Keith Olbermann, cited Fox News as the “worst persons in the world.” He claimed that the Fox News Channel is blatant right-wing propaganda. He also noted that President Obama, in a recent TV interview (the same interview, incidentally, as the now-notorious fly-swatting incident, in which, according to news reports on MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN and elsewhere, the President demonstrates his “remarkable fly-swatting skills”) claimed that there was at least one news channel dedicated to undermining his administration at all costs. Olbermann suggests that the President was referring to Fox News.

Back in the day when the Republicans controlled both houses as well as the Presidency, a period that might well go down in history as a modern-day Dark Ages or Reign of Terror, the Fox News channel was considered to be the bastion of credible news. So much so that all other news agencies were too afraid even to question their authority.

Fox News, owned by Australian media magnate Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., had started on the premise that conventional news sources like CNN and network news operated on a principle of a subtle left-wing cultural bias resulting from the educational and social milieu of their journalists. The solution that Fox News apparently proposed was to dedicate a news channel to supposedly “fair and balanced” news coverage. “Fair and balanced” became their watchword, but it soon proved to be ironic. Over time, their supposedly objective news coverage has been exposed as right-wing propaganda that was pretty blatantly pandering to the Bush administration while they were in power.

This brings us to MSNBC’s news lineup. MSNBC is a news channel that is produced as a joint venture, as the name suggests, between Microsoft (the monolithic software giant founded by Bill Gates) and NBC. Their lineup of news shows supposedly offers us the alternative to Fox News, but, as implied by Keith Olbermann, what they are really offering us is left-wing propaganda that panders to the Obama administration.

The tragic consequence of all this government pandering and institutional propaganda is that the number-one casualty in mainstream news coverage is credibility. Where are the Woodwards and Bernsteins of today, with their stunning exposés of corruption in high places? Definitely not at either Fox News or MSNBC.

Perhaps the answer to where we can find credible news sources lies with CNN–still bland and presenting the façade of objectivity while concealing a subtle left-wing bias–who now, apparently, resorts to blogs, Twitter feeds and Facebook posts to supplement their on-site correspondent reports. CNN even encourages you to submit amateur videos via the “iReport” section on their website, which allows them to feature the videos on their news shows after a process of vetting and verification. In fact, in the ongoing Iranian uprisings, where mainstream journalists are being banned and extradited by the authoritarian Iranian regime, western news sources are having to rely on Twitter feeds, blogs and amateur video from Iranian citizens as their news sources.

This brings us to the argument that mainstream news organizations have recently been making against the Blogsphere, especially in the wake of such recent films as State of Play, directed by Kevin Macdonald, namely that the Blogsphere is composed primarily of amateurs who are out of their depth, whereas if you are looking for cutting-edge Woodward-and-Bernstein style in-depth reporting, you will find it only at the major news organizations who have the skills and resources at their disposal to support that kind of news coverage.

The reality–at least two of the so-called major news organizations are dedicated to producing partisan propaganda that pretty shamelessly panders to politicians while the third is increasingly resorting to the Blogsphere to provide its news sources. As for Woodward and Bernstein, they are both retired and writing books for a living.

The moral of the story appears to be, therefore, that if you are looking for cutting-edge journalism, skip the news networks and, instead, check out the Blogsphere!

Ethiopian News and About Ethiopia

Ethiopian News and About Ethiopia

Ethiopia is located in the Horn of Africa, bordered by Eritrea to the north, Sudan to the west, Kenya to the south, Somalia to the east and Djibouti to the northeast. Its size is 1,100,000 km² with an estimated population of over 85,000,000. It is one of oldest countries in the world and the second most populous in Africa – only second to Nigeria. The population is diverse and has more than 70 different languages. The dominant ethnic group in Ethiopia is the Oromo (40%), followed by the Amhara (30%), and Tigray (6%).

Ethiopia has the most number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Africa and is famous for its rock-hewn churches, structures that tell the long history about Ethiopia. Ethiopian news is dominated by achievements of its world famous distance athletes. Ethiopia’s well-know distance runners include Abebe Bekila, Mamo Woldie, Haile Gebresilassie, Kenenisa Bekele, Deratu Tulu, and Tirunesh Dibaba. It is difficult not to include such athletes when talking about Ethiopia.

Ethiopia is the origin of the coffee bean, and Africa’s largest coffee producer. Coffee is Ethiopia’s number one export and the source of most of it foreign currency. Some 12 million Ethiopians depend on coffee and related industries. Coffee is an integral part of Ethiopian culture and about Ethiopia.

The headquarters of United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) is in Addis Ababa, often labeled Africa’s “Diplomatic Capital,” as is the headquarters of the African Union (formerly the Organization of African Unity), of which Ethiopia was the principal founder.

Ethiopia is also known for being one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world. For much of the past several decades, the country depended on food aid to feed part of its population. The country faced some significant droughts and famine in the last half century. Latest trends are, however, encouraging. For much of the last decade, the country’s economy has been growing 5-12% a year.

The government of Ethiopia is federal system of government. The current President is Girma Wolde-Giorgis, the ceremonial head of state. The Prime Minister and the head of the government is Meles Zenawi, who belongs to a coalition of parties known as the EPRDF. Under the present government, opposition parties, Ethiopian news organizations and several press watchdog agencies complain of lack of sufficient press freedom. They allege that citizens have little access to media about Ethiopia other than the state-owned networks, and complain that private newspapers are struggling under restrictive press laws.

Ethiopian news print media include state-owned newspapers such as Addis Zemen and Ethiopian Herald, and private newspapers such as the Ethiopian Reporter, Addis Fortune, Daily Mirror, Addis Admas and Ethiopian Capital. Ethiopian news organizations include the state-owned Ethiopian News Agency and the EPRDF-owned Walta Information Center. Internet-based Ethiopian news organizations are many but small and mostly foreign-based. Many of these sites complain of being blocked and inaccessible from within Ethiopia. Poor internet connectivity in Ethiopia may also be one reason for the lack of well-developed Ethiopian news sources on the internet.

Mapping Business News

Mapping Business News

Newspapers both print and online publications as well as news websites illustrate business trends using a variety of data visualization tools. Integral to the display is the fact that these charts or maps require to be easy to comprehend and visually arresting enough to hold the readers’ attention. Most publications show business data with a worldwide perspective. In this respect, the usage of flash maps in order to illustrate or just facts allows for easy comparison and analysis.

Take for example the phenomenon of recession. One of the first questions that any individual has regarding this economic downturn is how the markets over the world has been affected. If one is to illustrate this data through attractive and comprehensive visualization the easiest method is to plot all the data on a map. Mapping software allows us to superimpose charts on a map which is an effective way to illustrate the data keeping geographical concerns in mind. Another and perhaps the more effective way to do it is to choose color ranges to correspond to data ranges and then use pin points to mark each city or country or market as desired. A mouse over option can be included which allows one to get to the actual chart displaying in greater detail the market calisthenics. The chart can also include a link to homepage of the market being studied which will provide more information with regard to the money metrics.

This kind of mapping can also be used in a 2D map for print purposes. In this case too, color coded markers can effectively illustrate the trends over the world. A 2D map is also a great place to place columns corresponding to the trends in each zone. While the make an otherwise dry set of data greatly attractive, it also becomes easily comprehensible.

A layman is easily distracted and confused by a set of numbers run without sufficient classification by newspapers and magazines. With respect to this concern, anything from commodities traded in to flourishing markets and dips in stock indexes can be illustrated using a world map or even the map of a country as a background to plot numbers on. Further analysis of a map allows us to relate trends with economic policies and market characteristics. Yet another advantage in using maps like this is the ability to choose a time line for review varying from a year right up to 100 years. Each year or set of years can be conveniently color-coded making a map that is visually stunning and simple to comprehend.

Bird Flu News from China

Bird Flu News from China

Recently, the news has reported that China has developed a new avian flu vaccine that is more efficient in protecting its poultry population against the devastating disease.

 

This vaccine was developed at the Harbin Veterinary Research Institute in northeast China, and is said to be the world’s first live vaccine to be used against the bird flu. Scientists there spent about four years in the development this breakthrough vaccine.

 

This new vaccine can be adminstered several different ways, giving scientists a distinct advantage in possibly getting a handle on the spread of the bird flu. Just like other vaccines, this one can be injected; but it differs in that it can also be given orally, or nasally or conveniently by spraying.

 

This new vaccine may replace the current vaccine being used in China, as the former had to be injected… putting people at risk due to the proximity.

 

The Chinese government recently approved the vaccine for mass production, with the current cost being about a fourth of the cost of other vaccines on the market.

 

Experiments with this new vaccine show that it may also protect some mammals from bird flu (for example… mice). Scientists are hopeful that the techniques learned in developing this vaccine may also help to research and implement a vaccine to protect people from the bird flu.

 

This new vaccine is great news in the fight against the bird flu H5N1, however with recent human deaths in China, the World Health Organization and other international health bodies have asked China to provide animal samples of the bird flu virus for testing, and China has not done it. Also… there has been no cooperation between Taiwan and China for the exchange of information about the bird flu. Taiwan has said bird flu turned up in exotic birds smuggled by boat to the island from Fujian, where, at the time of writing this, no outbreaks among birds have been reported.

Barack Obama

Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the health care and mortgage crises, the overall state of the economy and dozens of other pressing issues had to wait for their few moments in the sun as Obama was pressed to explain his recent “bitter” gaffe and relationship with Rev. Wright (seemingly a dead issue) and not wearing a flag pin while Clinton had to answer again for her Bosnia trip exaggerations.

Then it was back to Obama to defend his slim association with a former ’60s radical — a question that came out of rightwing talk radio and Sean Hannity on TV, but delivered by former Bill Clinton aide Stephanopolous. This approach led to a claim that Clinton’s husband pardoned two other ’60s radicals.

Hindi News: More about Language than News

Hindi News: More about Language than News

Loving one’s nation is not unlikely but disrespect to others is. Same thought applies on states and language of one’s residence and concern. We might be indifferent to other’s opinion but we never should disregard and impose ours’ on them. For example the language we speak. It is inherited through our family and then we start relying on it. Our works and inclinations are very much influenced by the language we are given or have chosen as our mode of expression just like Hindi News.

 

News being important to us is preferred in our own language. If somebody belongs to Kerala he would prefer Malayalam as his medium of communication. Somebody from Bihar would prefer Bhojpuri for the same reason. People from north India would read up chhattisgarh news in hindi. They would pay attention to the polls of West Bengal and watching a female stepping to post of chairs only when they have West Bengal news in Hindi. The way we function and decide to live our life involves so much of influences and their expressions via language.

 

Language-power of expression

With language come various important things like literature, history, culture, science and lifestyle. All that and of course the expressions as they have to be communicated to others. Language has its own semblance and own way to grow and reach to people. One should not hinder its path by restricting it for a particular community even if just by thoughts.

 

Like everything, Hindi news also has its impact due to the language and its reach. One cannot stop its prevalence when numbers are talked of. Chhattisgarh news in Hindi, West Bengal news in Hindi, Kerala news in Hindi and other state news in the Hindi are just impression of the reach of the language. We talk about any place and its happenings irrelevant if seen from linguistic point of view but are of interest if told to somebody in his native language or intonation. So, we see how language can unite us.

Language-Hope for a United World

We have a universal language of communication. No, we are not talking about English. We are talking about language of art and music. They have potential to bring world as one and united. English and Hindi News seem so much restricted in that sense.

 

Incidents are interesting and sometimes important to know. News does this job of telling people. But its impact can reach to a multitude if arts and music becomes the medium. Even state news like Chhattisgarh news in Hindi, West Bengal news in Hindi, etc can be more fun this way.

 

Good News and Not Really Bad news

Good News and Not Really Bad news

A husband harassed by his wife’s love for coffee and her demand for automatic coffee machines , finally wrote in to the agony aunt. He wanted to know if he bought the very expensive equipment, which seemed like a whole lot of money for a coffee maker, would the super automatic coffee machine , brew regular coffee? And would it also make her latte and cappuccino “things” too?

In reply, he got good news and “not really that bad” news. The good news was that automatic coffee machines would make all the special types of coffee available with very little effort and the not really that bad news was that it did not make regular coffee. To make regular coffee, a drip coffee maker is required.

An automatic coffee machine can make café Americano and café crema, which are quite similar to the regular coffee. But take heart. There are automatic coffee machines for every budget. Take a look, exercise your fingers on the keyboard and let the words fly on Google or any other search engine!!! There will be so many brands and designs before you that you will be left mind boggled and spoiled for choice.

While all automatic espresso coffee machines allow some control over the liquid volume, not every machine is programmable. With a programmable machine, you can dispense the perfect amount of coffee anytime. Steaming and frothing milk on espresso coffee machines is pretty simple. If the machine comes with an automatic frother, most of the work is done. It even moistens the grounds with water in the pre-brewing cycle which helps extract more flavor from the coffee.

A few helpful tips to keep in mind while buying the automatic espresso coffee machine would be like how frequently you will be entertaining. If you entertain on a regular basis, you will need a machine with dual heating elements. They eliminate the time between brewing and steaming. It is extremely helpful while making a number of lattes after a dinner party. A single heating element takes up to a minute to vent excess water.

An espresso coffee machine’s rule of gold,

Its pre-heated cups are never cold.

Partnership Remembered

LG Electronics South Africa and South African Air Forces Korean Veterans Association handed over a commemorative painting of the South Korean Ambassador to South Africa at a function held in Sand ton recently to mark the 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean conflict in 1950.

No.2 Squadron, SAAF.-The Flying Cheetahs –supported the Korean War effort with a distinguished record of service in Korea. The Flying Cheetahs piloted P-51D Mustangs and F-86F Sabres during this time which are the subjects of the painting by Professor Derrick Dickens.

The Korean electronics giant, LG Electronics, donated money to the SAAF Korean Veterans Association for the painting of the two types of aircraft flown by South Africans in the liberation efforts in Korea between 1950 and 1953 .The painting was later handed over to the President of Korea, Lee Myung-bak by the Korean ambassador to South Africa, Hansoo Kim.

The pilots and men of the squadron were highly decorated heroes who received a total of 797 medals. These included two silver stars-the highest award to non-American nationals-three Legions of Merit for meritorious conduct,55 Distinguished Flying Crosses for heroism in aerial combat and 40 Bronze Stars for bravery.

No.2 Squadron flew a total of 12 067 sorties for a loss of 34 pilots and two other ranks. Its role was mainly flying ground attack and interdiction missions as one of the squadrons making up the United States Air Forces 18th Fighter Bomber Wing.

Thunder City to Cease Flying

Well-known Thunder City, which has the worlds largest civilian-owned fleet of ex-combat jets including three English Electric Lightings, three BAe Buccaneers, five Hawker Hunters, a Strike master and two retrofitted Puma helicopters, ceased flying operations shortly before the opening of the Africa Aerospace and Defense exhibition in late September at which it was widely expected to perform .

Making the announcement founder and CEO of Thunder City, Mike Beachy Head said:”Established under the name Thunder City 2000, the brand has gone on to become one of the most globally recognized as a home-grown South Africa one. Seen by an estimated 1, 5 billion TV viewers in countries across the planet, the iconic Thunder City, jets have inspired many to travel to Cape Town to experience the thrill and adrenaline-rush of flying in a supersonic ex-military jet.”

Beachy Head added that it had not been an easy decision to make, but that a number of factors such as the current slow economy, high cost of maintenance, difficulties with inconsistencies from the authorities and short to medium term prospects, had influenced the closures. He says that the 14 aircraft would be mothballed until a final decision is made as to the future of this valuable and historic collection.

During the past decade the Thunder City jets have flown more than 2000 sorties and generated revenue in excess of R100-million.
