Patrice Émery Lumumba (born Élias Okit'Asombo; 2 July 1925 – 17 January 1961) was a Congolese independence leader and the first democratically elected Prime Minister of the Republic of the Congo (now known as the Democratic Republic of the Congo). As founder and leader of the Mouvement national congolais, Lumumba helped win his country's independence from Belgium in 1960. Within twelve weeks, Lumumba's government was deposed in a coup during the Congo Crisis. The main reason why he was ousted from power was his opposition to Belgian-backed secession of the mineral-rich Katanga province. Lumumba was subsequently imprisoned by state authorities under Joseph-Desiré Mobutu and executed by firing squad under the command of the secessionist Katangan authorities. The United Nations, which he had asked to come to the Congo, did not intervene to save him. Belgium, the United States (via the CIA), and the United Kingdom (via MI6) have all been accused of involvement in Lumumba's death. This video is targeted to blind users.

Today, there are 795 million hungry people in the world. Food is a basic human right, yet this right is violated every day. The magnitude and impact of crises and disasters is increasing. The poorest and hungry are less able to absorb, recover and adapt. 75 % of the poorest populations rely on agriculture for their food and income. Livelihoods that depend on agriculture are on the front line of protracted crises, food chain emergencies and natural hazards and climate-related disasters. When a climate-related disaster strikes, 25 % of the total damage and losses are absorbed by the agriculture sector. Protecting, saving & restoring agricultural livelihoods is central to FAO’s work around the world. We must take action in 4 areas: govern crises and disaster risk, early warning for early action, reduce community vulnerability, and prepare and respond. We must take action at all levels: local, national, regional, and global. Building resilience bridges short-term humanitarian aid and long-term development interventions. Building resilience brings together risk reduction and crisis management. It must work across all sectors of agriculture: livestock, fisheries, forestry. To achieve Zero Hunger, we need to ensure access to food, conserve natural resources, and slow the pace of climate change. With resilient livelihoods, we can eradicate hunger, for present and future generations.

2018 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Religion November 17 Denver, Colorado The 2018 AAR Journalism Award winners and the Pulitzer Center’s celebrated journalists once again engage some of the biggest religion news stories and religion topics of 2017. The debate over evil during a devastating year of shootings and death, the resurgence of white nationalism, and religion in the US military are a few of the stories qualifying them as the 2018 top finishers. Not only will journalists examine these topics and others but they will also discuss updates, outcomes and impact on the public sphere and religion today. Daniel Burke, winner of the 2018 AAR Award for Best In-Depth Newswriting on Religion and CNN's religion editor, submitted articles about Neil Gorsuch, the evil debate, Roy Moore and Trump announcing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Jack Jenkins, who placed second and national reporter for the Religion News Service, presented articles concerning Christian nationalism- its role and presence in the Trump presidency and American pulpits, as well as an article about white supremacy and the Charlottesville, VA protest. Kelsey Dallas, who placed third and national religion reporter for the Deseret News, offered articles regarding Sikhs and US military uniform policy, US foreign policy, and the Christian legal movement’s involvement in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case. The panel also includes two affiliates of the Pulitzer Center- an innovative award-winning, non-profit journalism organization that promotes in-depth engagement with underreported global affairs through its support of quality international journalism. Jason Motlagh, National Magazine Award winner, will present his current work on religiously inspired violence against Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar and Executive Director Jon Sawyer will discuss the Center’s interaction with journalists and contributions of other Pulitzer fellows. At the beginning of the session, the AAR will hold an award ceremony honoring the 2018 winners.

When conflict broke out in Central African Republic, 14-year-old Veva fled from her now-destroyed home to a tent near the national airport in Bangui. Clashes drove over 6,000 children and their families into the displacement camp where they also attend school. Veva is determined to remain in school, saying "If I don't go to school, what will I do? What will become of me?" Other children she attends school with are coping with the trauma of displacement, with some drawing pictures of weapons. She says, "It disturbs me, it really does because before, their life was not like that." _______________________________________________________ Subscribe to UNICEF here: http://bit.ly/1ltTE3m The official UNICEF YouTube channel is your primary destination for the latest news updates from the frontline, documentaries, celebrity appeals, and more about our work to realize the rights of every child.

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Barack Obama Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

A member of the Democratic Party, he was the first African American to be elected to the presidency and previously served as a United States Senator from Illinois (2005–2008). Obama was born in 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii, two years after the territory was admitted to the Union as the 50th state. After graduating from Columbia University in 1983, he worked as a community organizer in Chicago. In 1988, he enrolled in Harvard Law School, where he was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. After graduating, he became a civil rights attorney and a professor, teaching constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. He represented the 13th district for three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, when he ran for the U.S. Senate. He received national attention in 2004 with his March primary win, his well-received July Democratic National Convention keynote address, and his landslide November election to the Senate. In 2008, he was nominated for president a year after his campaign began and after a close primary campaign against Hillary Clinton. He was elected over Republican John McCain and was inaugurated on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, he was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate. During his first two years in office, Obama signed many landmark bills into law. The main reforms were the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (often referred to as "Obamacare", shortened as the "Affordable Care Act"), the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010 served as economic stimulus amidst the Great Recession. After a lengthy debate over the national debt limit, he signed the Budget Control and the American Taxpayer Relief Acts. In foreign policy, he increased U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan, reduced nuclear weapons with the United States–Russia New START treaty, and ended military involvement in the Iraq War. He ordered military involvement in Libya in opposition to Muammar Gaddafi; Gaddafi was killed by NATO-assisted forces. He also ordered the military operations that resulted in the deaths of Osama bin Laden and suspected Yemeni Al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki. After winning re-election by defeating Republican opponent Mitt Romney, Obama was sworn in for a second term in 2013. During this term, he promoted inclusiveness for LGBT Americans. His administration filed briefs that urged the Supreme Court to strike down same-sex marriage bans as unconstitutional (United States v. Windsor and Obergefell v. Hodges); same-sex marriage was fully legalized in 2015 after the Court ruled that a same-sex marriage ban was unconstitutional in Obergefell. He advocated for gun control in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, indicating support for a ban on assault weapons, and issued wide-ranging executive actions concerning climate change and immigration. In foreign policy, he ordered military intervention in Iraq in response to gains made by ISIL after the 2011 withdrawal from Iraq, continued the process of ending U.S. combat operations in Afghanistan in 2016, promoted discussions that led to the 2015 Paris Agreement on global climate change, initiated sanctions against Russia following the invasion in Ukraine and again after Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, brokered a nuclear deal with Iran, and normalized U.S. relations with Cuba. During his term in office, America's reputation in global polling significantly improved. Evaluations of his presidency among historians and the general public place him among the upper tier of Ameri ...

My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)
