Rohingyas: The Wretched of the Earth

Who are the Rohingya? According to my own understanding, they could truly be called a species of uncertain taxonomic position. People who lived for centuries in the bordering region of Myanmar (Burma) and Chitagong, a hilly tract of East Bengal, one time East Pakistan, now Bangladesh since December 1971, but they are vehemently refused citizenship of either of these two countries.

They can have religious or sentimental meaning, reflect a person’s class or just be different to…

Fat Freezing technology at The Zenith Clinic

How would it sound if a friend informed you that in their quest to lose fat and slim down, after spending HOURS in the gym daily, dieting and watching what they ate, all to no avail, they almost achieved the impossible, a six pack by simply putting a large rectangle cup on the area and letting it be sucked up and frozen!!

Is Cash the real King?

We have all heard the adage that in business “Cash is King”. But what does that mean to the average small business or self-employed contractor?  If Cash is King, then surely making lots of sales and raising the associated invoices in the shortest time possible should make a business cash rich. On the surface this seems like a logical assessment, and in perfect circumstances this should be the case. For most SME’s and Sole Traders however, the real key to success is managing resources to meet the needs of customers,…

Genesis of Extremism and Terrorism

“Terror destabilises, not constructs; and instability creates vacuum, filled, for more often than not, by those with a fascistic agenda, whether that fascism is sponsored by religious fundamentalism or multinational colonialism”, wrote Huck Gutman, professor of English in the University of Vermont, USA. There is no denying the fact that terrorism thrives within the illegitimate borders of occupation and dictatorship; it festers behind security walls put up by imperial powers; it crosses those borders and climbs those fences to explode inside the countries responsible for, or complicit in, occupation and…
