The US is conveniently ignoring accusations that the Syrian rebels themselves might have engaged in crimes against humanity, while throwing blame at Syria for unproven chemical weapon use to justify further military, political and diplomatic pressure against the Syrian government.

The chemical weapons claim is not new by Western governments.  It is an obvious distraction to the NSA spying on every citizen with an added goal of starting a wider war.  We are not buying this crap anymore.

Architecture has long been an indispensable tool...as a method of exerting psychological control - Norway’s Halden Prison fosters an environment of mutual respect.

Matias Wæraas's insight:

The UN Human Rights Council has determined that living in the Pelican Bay State Prison for many is the same as being tortured. The prison is overcrowded and the risk of contracting contagious diseases runs high. Because of this 30 000 prisoners in the california state prison system participated in a july 9 hunger strike.

Humane prison architecture.

Our built environment has a large impact on the way we live and interact with one another. As this article says, some buildings should never have been built as they are an abuse of human rights.

Genetic mutation fuels childhood obesity - Study http://bit.ly/HqoxbV

Jorge Tapia's curator insight, February 6, 2014 5:24 PM

This article was very interesting. It really brought my attention because now a days many children suffer from obesity. The study that was carried on showed the difference between those children who had the gene mutation to those who didn't carry it. The results were shocking. Researchers discovered a gene mutation which is responsible for having a slow metabolism, or the rate at which calories in the body are burnt. The study was done to children to check if the gene was responsible for fuelling human obesity. In the end, the study said that children with gene mutation were more likely to have an increased appetite, slower metabolism, lower heart rate and also a severe insulin resistance as compared to those who didn't carry the gene mutation in their body.

Matias Wæraas's insight:

This article states that Norway always has been a very international country, and that they want to keep that position. In doing this they want to motivate students to study abroad, this by giving more opportunities and choice when it comes to places and things you can study.
