Aid – and the control of its uses – is most effective if it is not channeled through government. What is needed is difficult – but not impossible – to transfer.
Know-how needs to be transmitted as that is the key of the door to prosperity. About forty years ago, my uncle, who as a CEO lived in an underdeveloped country in Latin America, phrased the point this way: if you want to help a shoe-maker in a jungle village you should order sandals for a hundred dollars. If you wish to ruin the guy you should just hand him the dough.

affirmative action for men is politically incorrect. that many women won't find educated male peers to marry
The problem was structural, feminists never tired of repeating: A system built by men, for men, was blocking women's way.
Today's shortage of men, by contrast, is largely ignored, denied, or covered up. Talk to university administrators, and few will admit that the imbalance is a problem, let alone that they're addressing it.
the education system is favoring quantity over quantitative skills. The result? American companies and research organizations that need to employ graduates in quantitative fields have to turn to foreigners. Already, an astounding 40 percent of all the master's degrees awarded by American institutions in science, engineering, and information technology go to foreign students, as do 45 percent of all Ph.D.s in those fields

I hate the idea of women-only, radical feminist threads here. I have read other boards that Heart posts on, and I think she is transphobic and a bully. I’m guessing that women-only in the context of Heart’s version of radical feminism is going to be limited to “womyn-born-womyn,

First they gave us gay adoptions.
Then gay marriage.
It wasn't long before polygamy, a practice dating back millenia, though invariably a negative institution even in -- especially in -- the Bible, came to the forefront again.
And, for now, the last taboo to fall is inter-species marriage. (Via K-Lo at the Corner)

Historically, epidemics of bubonic plague have been associated with enormous die-offs of rats.
“There are no reports of dead rats in the streets in the 1300s of the sort common in more recent epidemics when we know bubonic plague was the causative agent,” says Wood.
Instead of being spread by animals and insect vectors, the researchers believe that the Black Death was transmitted through person-to-person contact, as are measles and smallpox.
The geographic pattern of the disease seems to bear this out, since the disease spread rapidly along roadways and navigable rivers and was not slowed down by the kinds of geographical barrier that would restrict the movement of rodents.

"Last week, the Senate (Malaysia's Upper House) approved controversial amendments to the Islamic Family Law (Federal Territories) Bill 2005.
Under the new Section 107A of the law, a husband is allowed to obtain an injunction preventing the disposition of property by a wife or a former wife.
The amendment also endorses man's right to polygamy without having to prove he is financially capable of treating his wives on equal footing before taking on another.
Upon taking a new wife, men can now seize property belonging to existing wives, and they are also given new rights to claim assets after a divorce, as well as less obligation to pay compensation and maintenance."

I've never been a fan of the Guardian Angels, mainly because I only see them on trains going north (i.e., to whiter areas) here in the Chicago area. I recall only see them going south (i.e., to blacker areas), where the crime disproportionately takes place, on one occasion. That is ineffectiveness. And note that they only wanna set up shop in Toronto, now that a little white girl was murdered in downtown Toronto, and not when black folks were getting killed in Toronto. Take it from me, Felix...they ain't coming to your neighborhood.

Welcome to Black Perspective and Introspection; One of the best places in the Blogsphere to find insight from a Black perspective not beholden to White America.
On Booker Rising
As much as I generally find women from the African Horn region to be very attractive.....she is not among them. She looks like a tanned European....maybe that is why some folks think she's hot...because she has the European look. I am amazed at the prominence of this person on this blog. I had not visited this blog for several months and when I returned....you guessed it...her mug was on the page. What does this person demonstrate or manifest that makes her such a story topic on this Blog?

The Direct Marketing sector regards the telephone as one of its most successful tools. Consumers experience telemarketing from a completely different point of view: more than 92% perceive commercial telephone calls as a violation of privacy.
Telemarketers make use of a telescript - a guideline for a telephone conversation. This script creates an imbalance in the conversation between the marketer and the consumer. It is this imbalance, most of all, that makes telemarketing successful.
The EGBG Counterscript attempts to redress that balance

THOMAS SOWELL OP-ED: Curing Poverty Or Using Poverty?
The conservative Republican economist argues that leftists make a lot of noise about poverty but show little interest in how poverty has actually been reduced, whether in China or anywhere else:
"Since wealth is the only thing that can cure poverty, you might think that the left would be as obsessed with the creation of wealth as they are with the redistribution of wealth. But you would be wrong. When it comes to lifting people out of poverty, redistribution of income and wealth has a much poorer and more spotty track record than the creation of wealth. In some places, such as Zimbabwe today, attempts at a redistribution of wealth have turned out to be a redistribution of poverty. While the creation of wealth may be more effective for enabling millions of people to rise out of poverty, it provides no special role for the political left, no puffed up importance, no moral superiority, no power for them to wield over others."

ëtre polygame ou tromper sa femme ?
La polygamie existe bel et bien chez nous:- Mitterrand était polygame, non ?
ses deux conjointes étaient bien ensemble lors de son enterrement. Ses deux familles avaient de fait un statut officiel, toutes les deux protégées par nos institutions...-
Le droit civil français reconnaît la polygamie de ses citoyens, si si ! en Guyane, où une tribu amazonienne ayant la nationalité française a le droit de pratiquer la polygamie.
Par ailleurs, comparons ce qui est comparable, quoi préférer entre :- un guss qui a une femme et une maîtresse, qui vit dans l'hypocrisie et le mensonge, qui traite de façon inéquitable l'une et l'autre ?- et un autre, polygame qui a deux épouses ayant les mêmes droits ; ce guss là n'a pas à mentir ni se cacher.
Quant aux femmes qui sont dans cette situation, laquelle est la moins dure ?celle de l'épouse trompée par son mari qui a une maitresse ?celle de la maitresse qui n'a aucune certitude sur l'avenir de sa relation et qui sait qu'elle a des relations avec un homme marié ?ou celle d'une co-épouse parfaitement au fait de sa situation, qui n'a pas à subir de mensonges ni hyprocrisie de son mari ?
Attention, je ne dis pas qu'être co-épouse est facile à vivre ni plus facile à vivre qu'épouse unique. Je crois que c'est plus facile à vivre qu'être épouse unique délaissée et trompée..
Quant à notre droit civil, il interdit la polygamie aux citoyens français résidant sur un territoire français(sauf en amazonie guyannaise), mais il n'interdit pas de tromper son conjoint.
Les nouvelles mesures de divorce considèrent que tromper son conjoint n'est pas une faute...

Usually progress requires activity, but activity is not an accurate indicator of progress.
"No intercourse please -- were enlightened."
Sensitive, feminized and resentful, today's young men no longer have the sexual authority to please a woman -- no matter how much oral sex they perform....
article by Ann Marlowe at Salon
The polymorphously perverse, gender-is-just-a-construct future that radical feminists and academics used to dream of has actually arrived. Men no longer have any authority, either in their own eyes or in women's, the genders are distinguished socially mainly by stuff they buy, and eroticism has fled from the bedroom to the store. It's sexier for most of us to go shopping than to make love, and so we do....

"Hi again, C. Thanks for granting me another opportunity to deliver my predictions for this year's Miss World beauty pageant. Once again it promises to be a fabulous pageant, as the world watches the anointment of its new female leader...."
Okay, on with my picks for the top three finalists...
Finalist #1: Miss Ecuador, Marielisa Marques Gutierrez
Lots of controversy surrounds Miss Ecuador this year ...
Finalist #2: Miss Serbia & Montenegro, Dina Dzankovic
Many say she has an unfair advantage being that she represents two countries ...
Finalist #3: Miss Russia, Yulia Ivanova
I know, this last pick is something of a shocker as it means this is the first year that I haven't picked Miss China to be in the final three.

Why do gay men dominate the fashion industry?

Bruce Hayden said... To me, it doesn't make a lot of scientific sense. The traits that would seem to give a gay man an advantage over a straight on in this area are, well, feminine. Such things as noticing and obsessing over details, matching, etc. And so why shouldn't women do as well?
10:06 AM, December 08, 2005
chuck b. said... I can't agree that obsessing over details is a feminine trait. Straight men appreciate the fine details of all kinds of things. Details are gender-neutral.

Roger Sweeny said... Michael Vollbracht, the current designer of Bill Blass, said he believes that gay men are demonstrably superior at design, their aesthetic formed by a perception of a woman as an idealized fantasy.
So should we add to Althouse's Law: "You can talk about differences between men and women only if you phrase it to be complimentary to women."
"You can also talk about differences between gay and straight men only if you phrase it to be complimentary to gays."

Straight men (without shoe and lingerie fetishes) are normally into the tried and true and practical. They and "passing for hetero" designers do a lot of preppie and evening classics, unless they're Brit and then all bets are off. Non-designer regular guys are content if wives keep the same comfortable but fairly presentable shoes for twenty years,...

SECRETS TO A HAPPY MARRIAGE
1. It is important to find a man that cooks and cleans.
2. It is important to find a man that makes good money.
3. It is important to find a man that likes to have sex.
4. It is important that these three men never meet. Þ

Betty - A lot of men want to have sex with women they don't want to marry. That's really the bottom line. From what I can see it is a lack of opportunity between White man and Black women. It's changing though.

Wow a loaded topic, but glad to see the majority of you are color blind :>) I am a black female who dates white males. My preference is by enviroment more than anything. I grew up in an all white, high school, neighborhood, and town in a rural area. Like some, my step grandfather was 100% Irish and I saw his pic everday of my childhood, right next to his 1/2 black 1/2 indian wife, Gertie. My real father and mother are black but my sister, who has a different very dark skinned father, looks white! Now I live in Orange County which is also all white. I moved because of a job and guess I didn't notice there was no change. I think if I had grown up in LA in a more even demographic (there were 2 black famlies in my town and one other black child in my grade) I might be attracted to other races. As I meet others however, my attractions expand to other races. This is my experince, it is not driven by illusions of wealth or stability or fear of abuse as some might suggest, just environment.
