Mercedes AMG Petronas is at the top of the Constructors for the Formula One World Championship. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton helped get them there with his second straight win Sunday, at the Formula One Grand Prix in Bahrain. Hamilton's brilliant calculations were instrumental in fending off his greatest challenger, teammate Nico Rosberg. Roberg had fresh tires and the Drag Reduction System (DRS) option. Hamilton had to keep him close enough to prevent the use of the DRS, while racing on tires that were in need of a change. Fans have said, "it was the most exciting race they have seen in a long time." After three races, Nico Rosberg is in the lead with points after winning one race and two second place podiums. Lewis Hamilton is second in scoring points after winning two races, and missing points for the first race, due to car trouble. While it is still early in the season, fans are asking "where in the world is Red Bull and Ferrari"?
Sergio Perez with Sahara Force India came in third, after a very impressive drive. And not to be over-looked, is the ever dependable Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas, who continues to score points for the Williams team.
Next race, China
Finian Cunningham of Global Research will be with me tonight to speak to me about Bahrain and their failed Arab Spring. With US help, the Kingdom continues to suppress their Democracy movement. The US Fifth Fleet has their home port there.
Another question we'll discuss: Is Democracy Coming to the U.S.A.
in Self Help
Tonight's special guest is Haseena Patel from South Africa, a returning NAASCA family member who's a girls’ empowerment coach, activist, speaker and author. She'll be appearing to talk about the "Bubbles Beyond Borders" campaign. This International event is planned for August 16th, and is being done to support the rights and dreams of girls and women worldwide. It was inspired by the recent horrific abduction of Nigerian girls. At least 9 countries are planning to be involved at present: South Africa, Nigeria, Uganda, Trinidad, Bahrain, Australia, the UK, Canada and the USA. (www.facebook.com/bubblesbeyondborders). Ms Patel's own life journey led to her writing her first book, "I Choose Victory: Find light in the darkness of a life-changing crisis." Girls’ empowerment, along with gender equality, has always been something that Haseena felt strongly about, and in 2010, together with her sister, Shameema, she founded Leave No Girl Behind International. Their organization inspires girls to live up to their own potential and raises awareness about the necessity of empowering girls, through international projects and programs. Haseena’s latest book, which she co-authored with Shameema, is titled "Leave No Girl Behind: How to help girls become the change in our world." As Haseena writes, "We need to be the light for all those girls out there who need hope." She goes on, "An empowered girl means an empowered nation which means an empowered generation. Let us Leave No Girl Behind!"
A recap of todays race
Coming off of a spectacular win in Malaysia and Bahrain, pole sitter and 2008 Formula One World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, won his third consecutive Grand Prix race of the season. The race was a historic accomplishment for Hamilton, who had never won three races consecutively. He is now tied with the great Nikki Lauder, one of his mentors at Mercedes AMG. The Mercedes team must be dancing on their toes with three wins by Lewis Hamilton, and one by Nico Rosberg, which put them ahead in the constructor series.
Some have declared this to be the year of a Hamilton/Mercedes championship feast. They may be right but there are many more races ahead and many more drivers who are, hungry enough to force their way to the table, including his teammate Nico Rosberg.
The Grand Prix China marked the third time; both drivers were on the podium together with a 1-2 smack down. The brilliant and humble Lewis Hamilton is poised to continue his reign at the Spanish Grand Prix. If the Mercedes car continues to be superior to its competitors, there is no reason why Hamilton cannot achieve a fourth consecutive win.
At the end of the day, it will be pure speed, tire care, intelligence and ability, that will win the championship, and Lewis Hamilton can do it all.
For the next 3-weeks he and his team, should be on a beach sipping fruit juice and soaking up the sun.
The original podcast of April 22 on the subject of Bahrain with Finian Cunningham was corrupted. I taped the show and have reposted it. Sorry for the inconvenience, but the interview and the information coming out of Bahrain is very telling and suggests that the United States is supporting a murderous Monarchy with the help of its ally Saudi Arabia, even while it claims that they are involved in the civil war in Libya for "humanitarian" reasons. Listen to this interview with a journalist in Bahrain and determine for yourself if the US is involved in the conflict in Libya an Bahrain for altruistic reasons.
The third interview with Finian Cunningham about Bahrain and the Pro-Democracy movement. This is a very telling account that actually wshgows how American foriegn policy is working against our best interests. The media reports that "Bahrain is returning to normalcy" is hogwash. Military actions against the people and torture and detentions of "dissidents" proves otherwise.
Finian Cunninham reporting from the Bahraini Capitol Manama, is a real eye-opener. Listening to this will prove disconcerting to those that believe America supports democracy and self-determination.
If you are interested in the future of democracy, Bahrain, or even the future of relations between the Arab people and the United States, you owe it to yourself to listen to this interview.
Finian Cunninham is a journalist from Bahrain. Here is his latest interview to give us the scoop about what's really happening in that nation.
USAID was fully aware that informed consent was not provided to women prior to Depo Provera injections (the Rebecca Project provided details to the DHHS, DOJ, and USAID) and that violates US ethical research IRB procedures and international law. U.S. drug companies and U.S. researchers have conducted nonconsensual and unethical research in Africa and the developing world. Pfizer v. Abdullahi directly confronted the issue. In a July 2009 ruling, a U.S. Court of Appeals found that the prohibition of non-consensual medical experimentation on humans is binding under customary international law, thereby allowing Trovan victims in Nigeria the right to seek relief against Pfizer in U.S. courts.In June 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Pfizer's appeal after the U.S. Acting Solicitor General, Neal Katyal, submitted his brief urging the court to deny Pfizer's petition.
Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation, UNFPA and USAID have taken advantage of political disorganization in Pakistan to administer Depo Provera to Muslim women; and are collaborating to expand a “self-inject” Depo Provera system in Pakistan. The In Israel, Netanyahu administration moved to act ethically and banned its doctors from renewing all Depo Provera prescriptions without full disclosure and consent to protect African Jews in Israel after the story of mandated Depo Provera injections was exposed in the spring of 2013.
European countries have provided full information about risks for women to consent to use Depo Provera for decades and use of Depo Provera is negligible. All U.S. allies in the Middle-East: Bahrain, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia restrict the use of Depo Provera on their nationals.. India, a permanent target of US population control policy, banned Depo Provera from its social welfare programs in 2012
Saudi Arabia and Iran may be butting heads over the troubles in Bahrain. Meanwhile a look back to Google news search results about Japan BEFORE the earthquake and meltdown took over the headlines.
An interview on Talent management, reward strategies and rewards with Roger Knight, Director of Human Resources and Training at American Mission Hospital Bahrain. He will be speaking at IQPC's HR in Healthcare Forum, Bahrain from 17 - 20 October 2010
