Tribute to iphone 6, Hong Kong
Foxconn is the manufactory of Apple Inc. in China where workers are subjected to unlawful and dehumanizing working conditions.  According to Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM), workers are often forced to work 6-7 days a week, resulting in a monthly overtime 2-3 times over the legal limit.  Many times these employees are enclosed and forced to work overtime until they reach their daily productivity goal.  Furthermore, when this goal is not met, the workers are at the mercy of the abuse of the managers, which is so brutal that Foxconn has been forced to acknowledge this problem.

Even more disturbing are the suicides where exhausted workers jump out the factory windows. There have been reports that Foxconn employed couselors in order to support the workers with the intensive work pressured to avoid more suicides during labor hours. Addionally, I found some reports that jumping nets were placed outside windows. 

There were also reports of unsafe exposure to dangerous chemicals and operation of machines without proper training and safety procedures, which often result in injuries that are not compensated

Gaza, people of Gaza and the resistance have made a real miracle. Personally, I can't talk about Gaza without passion and emotion. Gaza is the 21st-century's Leningrad.
I proudly salute Gaza.

Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday that Iran has a role to play in defeating ISIL.  Addressing a meeting of the United Nations Security Council, he said that the military alliance put together by the US and its allies is only one part of the task, and that the other is political.  He seemed to suggest a role for Iran in that political settlement.  He mentioned that the Iranian Foreign Minister was present.

Editor's comment:

The U.S foreign policy is usually pragmatic. Obama's administration tends to rearrange priorities in the middle east; by delaying the fate of Iran-backed Syrian president, in order to fight ISIS, meanwhile, Obama's administration needs the Iranian support in Iraq since Iran has strong influence there.

Uruguayan president José Mujica
Uruguay’s José Mujica lives in a tiny house rather than the presidential palace, and gives away 90% of his salary. He’s legalised marijuana and gay marriage. But his greatest legacy is governing without giving up his revolutionary ideals.

Mujica could live in the presidential palace, a hundred-year-old mansion in the old-money Prado district, but he would rather be here. “We think of it as a way of fighting for our personal freedom,” he said. “If you complicate your life too much in the material sense, a big part of your time goes to tending that. That’s why we still live today as we did 40 years ago, in the same neighbourhood, with the same people and the same things. You don’t stop being a common man just because you are president.”.
