For their part, American observers criticize the Putin administration for weakening Russia’s opposition parties, restricting broadcast media, and impeding nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

More > consciousness, resulting in a steady exodus of our most complete and competent student-athletes south of the border?

Sexual abuse happens. Domestic violence happens. We know it happens. We have child protective services. We watch Law and Order: SVU. We are surrounded by sex in our media, and we are surrounded by... More > sexual violence in our media. Yet I have turned to the work of Toi Derricotte because we are not surrounded by sexual violence in our literary criticism, because we are not discussing sexual violence in our college classrooms, because the work of a poet like Derricotte, a poet who reveals the long, difficult trajectory of the emergence of voice, of the emergence of a healthy, vibrant, bisexual self, is largely ignored by those of us in the academy who contribute articles to that grand behemoth otherwise known as the Modern Language Association's International Bibliography. The Black poetic feminism of Toi Derricotte works on this silence in a variety of ways. Read on, and perhaps learn a great deal from her journey.< Less
Riding the Razor By Mark McGillicuddy
eBook (PDF): $2.99
The contents of this book cover a variety of topics. There are stories about places discovered and incidents that occurred over years of international travel. Still others deal with life's varying... More > experiences. Just as in life, there is humor and sadness in these stories. While unique to the author or those he has encountered over the years, I believe that you may see elements of your own life in these pages. I have found that there is a remarkable commonality in mankind that supersedes language or locale. The poems deal with love, beauty, weariness, travel, and perseverance. There are also works that relate both lessons and experiences that were accumulated during a thirty year career in federal law enforcement. Lastly, there is a bit of tongue in cheek commentary and one piece that deals with a serious issue plaguing the United States. Overall, there are fifty-one different works in this book.< Less

More > journalists – the shocking murder of journalist Javier Ortega, and his two travelling partners Paúl Rivas and Efraín Segarra, underlining this. Gender inequality also seems to be a major challenge in Ecuador and Colombia. According to the Amnesty International Report 2018, violence against women, particularly sexual violence, persisted in Colombia – as well as in Ecuador, as about 90% of Ecuadorian women who experience violence seem to be reluctant to take action against their perpetrator; because family problems are considered private matters in Ecuador. Critical, but also deeply sensitive and humane, this book endeavours to improve public policy in the South America, so that peace and harmony can be manifested in the region. Social challenges – such as crime, poverty and civil unrest – are also explored in this work.< Less
