Srilanka: If this isn't GENOCIDE, WAR CRIME, Then What on Earth is?

People from across the globe are condemning the Human rights violations of Srilankan government. And civilized society is fighting hard to establish the justice to the tamils. Killing of nearly 1,40,000 innocents, war crimes, ongoing slaughter on the journalists, moderates, reformists, artists and having opposition leader behind the bars make the Srilanka as a criminal and a failed state.

Democracy Depends On Independent Journalism

These days news is everywhere -- on 24-hour cable networks, tabloids in the grocery store and even on our phones.

But amid the constant chatter and competition for ad sales and ratings, the lines between fact and fiction, entertainment and hostility, thoughtful commentary and hate-based opinions have been blurred. This isn't the recipe for a healthy, informed democracy.

Independent, investigative journalists --...

End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes

The causes of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) are complex and patterns differ among countries and regions. For example, in some areas the commercial sexual exploitation of children is clearly related to foreign child sex tourism, in others it is associated with the local demand.

Stop auto insurance companies from using Credit Scores as a basis for insurance rates

I know I'm not the only person tired of having my auto insurance rate based on my credit score. For years the government has allowed insurance companies to use our credit scores as a basis for car insurance. Not only is this insulting (even for someone like myself who has fairly good credit) but it has no basis in the auto insurance realm. Auto insurance should be based primarily on driving record, not excluding tickets removed by those...
