Obama’s Visit to Hiroshima Highlights Trump’s Scary Nuclear Gaffes – Chemi Shalev

Obama’s Visit to Hiroshima Highlights Trump’s Scary Nuclear Gaffes

As the president mends fences with old enemies, from Cuba to Japan, Trump seems happy to ‘rattle’ the international community.

Chemi Shalev – Haaretz

Barack Obama’s visit to the Memorial Peace Park in Hiroshima captured the main headlines of most serious newspapers on Saturday, but the news networks’ coverage kept to a bare minimum. Ratings-wise, it was hard for the history that Obama was making in Japan to compete with the hysterics that Trump was sparking with his faux-agreement to a television debate with Bernie Sanders. Between the sublime and the ridiculous, the latter won hands down.

It’s hard to conjure a starker contrast. Obama is intent on bringing down old walls while Trump is erecting new ones in their stead. Obama clears a path through complex situations with careful rhetoric while Trump tramples his way to the top with all the sensitivity of a bull in a china shop.   Continue reading

The beginning of a good life – By Ron Persaud

Opinion - commentary -analysisI recently celebrated a birthday – a significant one!
I decided to leave the routine of working for someone else – to someone else! I have all the house I will ever need, all the car that I can ever drive and enough income to provide for my other needs; which I have always managed to downsize when necessary. This was learned from an uncle, a tailor, who would often say, “cut your jacket according to your cloth”.

Shakespeare identified Seven ages of life and Hinduism  Only Four. In either case, I feel that I have embarked on that “las’ lap”.

So, for the rest of my life I will focus on two things – my physical and my spiritual, well being.  Continue reading

If you want to make enemies, try to change something. Change, no matter what scale it is on, can be a source of stress and anxiety for many. However, it’s common for change management practitioners to view resistance to change as an irrational barrier to progress. Another school of thought is that resistance to change is a social process that can strengthen changes and help to eliminate undesirable change.

If you’re doing things the way you always have, you know by now that someone, somewhere is figuring out how to make you obsolete
The fact remains that change is necessary in all organizations. But, it is the way change is initiated which can so greatly vary. It can be forced upon companies by outside forces or just come from a realization that the company may be falling behind the times. In this way, change management might be…

Bio of Chris Prashad – “A glimpse through the windows of my life!”

Chris Prashad

Chris Prashad

Hello I’m Chris Prashad and for those of you who do not know much about me I will try my best to paint a word portrait of my true self (no fiction) and hopefully through this medium, inspire you to take the reins firmly in your hands and change your outlook in life for the better henceforth.

You shall have just a glimpse through the windows of my life, what it was like growing up as I did, the hurdles I faced and overcame, my hopes and aspirations then, my music, and the real me. I will leave my siblings and my own family out of this as they too have their own unique stories to tell.  [Read more]
