News Americas, LONG ISLAND, NY, Tues. Oct. 21, 2014: Four weeks ago, this column urged the Caribbean to begin to think the unthinkable. It suggested that there are some individuals whose values are not those of the vast majority and who mean harm to those who live in the region or who visit.
That column pointed out that the world is now entering a new and dangerous phase in which fanatics are prepared to act across borders in any way that might damage those they believe they are at war with, or against those who do not believe their extreme interpretation of a religion that encourages selfless and peaceful universal values.

Cricket: Where have all the tall men gone ? – By Hubert Williams
A little while ago, I used the photograph at the bottom of this article to make a comparison between the stature of most of today’s leading West Indies cricketers and the giants in many opposing teams of the other cricket-playing countries, and asked the question: Where have all the tall men gone?
A photo today of a scene in India provides the answer: They have drifted into the past, and are re-emerging as broadcasters. Just look at the photo here of a current West Indies major player and a major one from the past: Dwayne Bravo seems a tiny mite standing beside retired player Ian Bishop. Continue reading →

October 12 is Children’s Day in Brazil. It’s a fun time for children across Brazil. On their special day, children receive toys from their parents and relatives. The day is celebrated with children parties, family outings, and special local events. It’s a day for families to share in the joys of childhood.
To commemorate Brazil’s Children’s Day, my Poetry Corner October 2014 features the poem “À Procura da Infância” (In Search of Childhood) by Brazilian poet Anilda Leão (1923-2012). Born in Maceió, capital of the Northeastern State of Alagoas, she grew up in a privileged middle-class family. Her father was a business owner and a respected politician in the 1940s and 1950s.

As the Ebola epidemic in West Africa is getting out of control, there are developing reports blaming the US for manufacturing Ebola and HIV viruses as part of its military’s bio-weapons projects using African people as guinea pigs.
Reports have pointed out that the US and a number of Western countries are using the Ebola outbreak to expand their military presence in mineral-rich Africa, challenge China’s growing engagement across the continent and offer their pharmaceutical companies the opportunity to gain financial benefits from development and sale of potential treatment drugs.

On October 3, 2014 Dr. Shigeaki Hinohar turned 103. This interview was given when he was 97 years old.
Introduction: At the age of 97 years and 4 months, Shigeaki Hinohara is one of the world’s longest-serving physicians and educators. Hinohara’s magic touch is legendary: Since 1941 he has been healing patients at St. Luke’s International Hospital in Tokyo and teaching at St. Luke’s College of Nursing.
After World War II, he envisioned a world-class hospital and college springing from the ruins of Tokyo; thanks to his pioneering spirit and business savvy, the doctor turned these institutions into the nation’s top medical facility and nursing school. Today he serves as chairman of the board of trustees at both organizations. Continue reading →
The brain uses a quarter of the body’s entire energy supply, yet only accounts for about two percent of the body’s mass. So how does this unique organ receive and, perhaps more importantly, rid itself of vital nutrients? New research suggests it has to do with sleep.
