Home is where the hearth is...

Even though I was born and raised in Dhaka, an urban jungle of almost 15 million people, and where traces of greenery is now almost non-existent, like all other Bengalis when asked where I am from, I identify myself as coming from a small village in northern Bangladesh – a place where my father was born and where we still own…

Satellite monitoring for a better response

The outlook for food security situation in Tajikistan is rather bleak and has been for a while now. The UN classifies 54% of the total population as living in unfavorable

food security situation. Of this population

group, the WFP lists 9% to be in severe food insecurity, while another 22% to

be in moderate insecurity. Numerous studies evince that most of the population is

spending more than half their income on food (for the most vulnerable…

Flies keep buzzing!

According to a recent government decree, from January 2010 no one in the City of Dushanbe can have livestock including live poultry in their house. The reasoning being such practices were leading to high incidence of flies, which according to the Ministry of Health can cause and transmit disease. The KGB or what used to be the KGB is actively enforcing the decree strictly penalizing violators. Laudable or laughable, you decide.


Live animals in households are a common sight…

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Charleston has an exhibit opening up with pieces of old african art and sculptures. Every piece of art, quilts and dolls, is beautiful and engaging in their own way… Many of them address the mermaids that followed the slave ships to return the souls…
