Akala - Knowledge is Power — London Real When you get the opportunity to sit down for 90 minutes with the English rapper, poet and journalist Akala, you'd better fasten your seatbelt and bring your passport because your destination is unknown. Akala is probably the most well-read and historically-versed person I have met in my entire life. Whether he's breaking down the evolution of the Wu Tang Clan, discussing the socioeconomic implications of the British public school system, or discussing the history of slavery in Jamaica, he has the facts at his fingertips and constructs compelling arguments with incredible agility. I kept thinking to myself "Is this what the late Christopher Hitchens was like in person?" As I composed the video trailer above I was reminded how his performance art has spanned many genres from ballads to hardcore to spoken word. I can only imagine what Akala will be doing in the next 10 years but I believe it will be in the pursuit of making us all better understand each other and love one another.

English Poor Laws The English Poor Laws were a system of poor relief which existed in England and Wales that developed out of late-medieval and Tudor-era laws being codified in 1587–98. The Poor Law system was in existence until the emergence of the modern welfare state after the Second World War. English Poor Law legislation can be traced back as far as 1536, when legislation was passed to deal with the impotent poor, although there is much earlier Tudor legislation dealing with the problems caused by vagrants and beggars. The history of the Poor Law in England and Wales is usually divided between two statutes, the Old Poor Law passed during the reign of Elizabeth I and the New Poor Law, passed in 1834, which significantly modified the existing system of poor relief.
The Road To Armageddon: A Spiritual Documentary (2012) At DocumentaryStorm.com we like to show you challenging videos about religion. Often, these take the shape of challenges to religion and we have a muscular section devoted to people such as Richard Dawkins, Atheism, Christopher Hitchens, etc. Today, we bring you a more spiritual journey. This documentary tries to find the commonality in message between Jew, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim: a spiritual quest for love, and against hate. The Road to Armageddon: A Spiritual Documentary examines the universal concept of the Apocalypse on an intensely personal and spiritual level, not as the end of the world but as the end of you: your body, your mind and, if you’re not careful, your soul. We are about to go on a battle between good and evil.
Brilliant Math & Science Wiki Being one of the fundamental tools of calculus, integrals have a large number of properties coming from the geometry of the coordinate plane, the definition of a functional, and the relationship between integrals and derivatives. Integrals also have an algebraic interpretation that allows for very useful techniques like u-substitution that are necessary for many types of integral evaluation (and in proofs of many properties below!). Sometimes, it is possible to relate the area of one integral to that of others Some properties give information about the limits. The interval is by convention written as .

Aid in reverse: How poor countries develop rich countries The idea of international development aid lies at the heart of a tremendously successful PR campaign. The narrative we have been sold claims that aid has been effective at reducing global poverty. Here I will argue that there are three problems with this narrative. First, poverty is not disappearing, despite what we have been told to believe. Second, aid disbursements from rich countries to poor countries are dwarfed by wealth flows that run in the other direction, to the point where poor countries are effectively developing rich countries. Third, and perhaps most critically, aid is not actually designed to reduce poverty, but operates as a tool that the elites of rich countries leverage to extract wealth, resources, and political compliance.

More drought, floods predicted for the Amazon - Conservation news Sao Paulo, Brazil’s most populous city, is currently suffering from a severe drought. Meanwhile, over the past year, record floods have hit other parts of Brazil. Though Sao Paulo is hundreds of miles from the rainforest, a study released earlier this year by one of Brazil’s top climate scientists found that deforestation in the Amazon is at least partially to blame for the drought gripping the city and much of the southeastern part of the country. These types of “hydrological extremes” are becoming more frequent in Amazonia.
