Bahrain holds International Garden Show to support agriculture sector

Bahrain holds International Garden Show to support agriculture sector | AP Human Geography Articles | Scoop.it
Bahrain has held its ninth International Garden Show (BIGS) at an exhibition center south of capital Manama, in a bid to promote sustainable economic growth in the agricultural sector.
Sierra Loudermilk's insight:

Bahrain is really trying to support their agricultural sector by raising awareness and showing off they have. They're really independent on their agricultural imports so they want to change that and be more dependent on their own products and agriculture that's within the country.

Impunity Watch » Blog Archive » Kim Kardashian: Her Milkshakes Bring the Hardcore Islamists to Protest | AP Human Geography Articles | Scoop.it
Sierra Loudermilk's insight:

Bahraini's are angry once they learn that Kim Kardashian is not really there to shed light on their lack on human rights like they had believed, but to popularize a Milkshakes store, and to just comment on how 'pretty' Bahrain is, insted of commenting on the legitimate issues throughout the country.

Former CNN reporter alleges CNN accepted money from Bahrain to ignore oppression | AP Human Geography Articles | Scoop.it

Breaking here in the U.S. are allegations that CNN and its CNN’s international arm engaged in accepting money from oppressive Islamic nations such as Bahrain to promote flattering reporting instead of the oppression the regime has engaged in against its citizens.

Documentary: Last Train Home

Documentary: Last Train Home | AP Human Geography Articles | Scoop.it

Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year in the world's largest human migration.

 

I've posted in the past about this documentary which portrays the The cultural importance of New Year's in China and the massive corresponding migratory shifts that take place.  What is new is that the 85 minute documentary is now available online.  "Last Train Home takes viewers on a heart-stopping journey with the Zhangs, a couple who left infant children behind for factory jobs 16 years ago, hoping their wages would lift their children to a better life. They return to a family growing distant and a daughter longing to leave school for unskilled work. As the Zhangs navigate their new world, Last Train Home paints a rich, human portrait of China's rush to economic development."

The Inconvenient Revolution - By Azzurra Meringolo | Foreign Policy | AP Human Geography Articles | Scoop.it
The fact that European countries are selling weapons to the Bahrain government to commit human rights violations is disgusting. These are the same countries that speak everyday of human rights and democracy.

‘Bahrain buys favorable CNN content’ — RT

‘Bahrain buys favorable CNN content’ — RT | AP Human Geography Articles | Scoop.it

The way things are going, we're no longer trying to help the people of Bahrain, we're supporting the leaders that we can control and influence. The Bahraini's were expecting assistance in choosing leaders that would help them to achieve better circumstances, but instead our government is doing nothing but hindering the peoples efforts.
