In between, Chan - our tuk tuk driver - dropped us back at the hotel for a power nap and breakfast. In the hotel they treat us like gods, bowing, pointing their hands at us in prayer, laughing at our jokes, asking why we allow natural disasters to happen...

Chinese School? No Thanks!

Learning by rote does not foster innovative thinking, questioning the status quo, changing the world. It teaches children to be excellent at passing exams that were designed to test their ability to regurgitate facts. This is not knowledge, or intelligence, or analytical thinking.

Poorna Bell

Let's not be under illusion here - menstruation is a bodily function. It a fluid - blood - that the body is rejecting because it is not pregnant. It doesn't have magical properties, it won't solve world peace and I wouldn't want it flowing down my legs anymore than I would want any other fluid.

Guys, to put it frankly, things out there are desperate. There are so many strays on the streets, feral cats, those that have been discarded by their so called owners and those who are lost. Yet, still many people are letting their cats breed.
