UN launches new Zimbabwe appeal as millions face food crisis 7.8.2019
Harare: The UN food agency, on Tuesday, launched a $331-million appeal for aid donations to feed millions of people in crisis-hit Zimbabwe, which is reeling from a drought and the high cost of food. Around five million people, or a third of the 16 million Zimbabweans, are in need of aid and at least half of them are on the cusp of "starvation", according to the World Food Programme (WFP). Speaking at the launch of the appeal, WFP executive director David Beasley said 2.5 million Zimbabweans were "in crisis emergency mode... marching towards starvation". He added that by early next year 5.5 million in all, will be in a similar position. A former regional breadbasket, Zimbabwe's economy has been on a downturn for over a decade with perennial food shortages, a foreign currency crunch, scarcity of basic commodities and high unemployment. The government blames the food shortages on the effects of climate change while critics say the shortages are a result of a slump in agricultural ...

On the contrary: Full Moon Half Potty among the troglodytes 28.7.2019
Pragya Thakur, the BJP MP from Bhopal is a woman on a mission; while her daily regimen includes the consumption of cow urine for medical purposes, she has made it crystal clear that cleaning toilets is not on her to-do list. "I have not been elected to clean drains or your toilets. I will honestly do the work for which I have been elected." Had she been an Eminem fan, she may have rapped, "Yo, read my lips, I don"t have time for this shit." This makes sense: given the generous salary and perks enjoyed by our MP"s one would hope Ms Thakur and her ilk would focus on big-button issues like the Union Carbide clean up, instead of mucking around with a broom and Harpic like Hema Malini. Consult Pragya to get your priorities right, Hemaji, and forget about photo-ops.  Unfortunately the top brass were not on the same enlightened wavelength and Pragya was summoned to party HQ where she got a dressing down on the subject of Swach Bharat from her boss, J.P Nadda. Her ...
