Zembla - Handel In Honger

Get Microsoft Silverlight

Torenhoge voedselprijzen leidden in 2008 wereldwijd tot hevige rellen, vooral in ontwikkelingslanden. Hoge voedselprijzen zijn het gevolg van schaarste, bijvoorbeeld veroorzaakt door mislukte oogsten. Maar die hoge prijzen worden nog eens extra opgedreven door een nieuw fenomeen: voedselspeculatie. Dat is het speculeren op financiële markten met de prijs van graan, mais, suiker, cacao, aardappelen, vlees – kortom: voedsel.

Gevolgen voedselspeculatie
Na de ineenstorting van de aandelenkoersen en de huizenprijzen hebben beleggers zich massaal gestort op de voedselmarkt. Lees verder.

Capitalism Is The Crisis

The Shock Doctrine



In THE SHOCK DOCTRINE, Naomi Klein explodes the myth that the global free market triumphed democratically. Exposing the thinking, the money trail and the puppet strings behind the world-changing crises and wars of the last four decades, The Shock Doctrine is the gripping story of how America’s “free market” policies have come to dominate the world-- through the exploitation of disaster-shocked people and countries.

At the most chaotic juncture in Iraq’s civil war, a new law is unveiled that would allow Shell and BP to claim the country’s vast oil reserves…. Immediately following September 11, the Bush Administration quietly out-sources the running of the “War on Terror” to Halliburton and Blackwater…. Read more.

Bahrain: Shouting in the dark



Bahrain: An island kingdom in the Arabian Gulf where the Shia Muslim majority are ruled by a family from the Sunni minority. Where people fighting for democratic rights broke the barriers of fear, only to find themselves alone and crushed.

This is their story and Al Jazeera is their witness - the only TV journalists who remained to follow their journey of hope to the carnage that followed.

This is the Arab revolution that was abandoned by the Arabs, forsaken by the West and forgotten by the world.

Mahabharata


Deel 2 Deel 3

We head to New Delhi, where at the DSC university, Professor Alka Tyagi speaks with her students about the conflicts that the greatest warrior of the Mahabharata, Arjuna has. 

She also discusses the conversation which Arjuna has with lord Krishna just before the great war of Mahabharata takes place at Kurukshetra. This conversation between the two is a chapter in the Mahabharata called ' The Bhagavad Gita'. She explains them about the symbolism in this tale.

Thus she tells how the carriage of Arjuna and the symbols within the carriage such as: the wheels, the horses, the path, the destination, the rider and charioteer (driver) are all metaphors of life, and that each of us faces a challenge in our modern life.

What is the spiritual significance of the battle which is described in the Bhagavad Gita for people of the here and now?

Phage - The Virus that Cures



With MRSA threatening to infect huge numbers of patients who make even short trips to the hospital, and the gradual increase in the number of bacteria that are resistant to all known antiobiotics, scientists are turning to new ways to conquer the killer bugs.

The emergence of dangerous antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria is most prevalent in the USA where antibiotics are available over the counter and are often mishandled.

The answers to these problems may be locked in the science of the former Soviet Union, and whether this potential can be unlocked depends on subtle aspects of intellectual property and patent law, since pharmaceutical companies must be able to control the revenues from a discovery.

Ethos



Ethos, a powerful new documentary hosted by Woody Harrelson, is an  investigation into the flaws in our systems, and the mechanisms that  work against democracy, our environment and the the common good.

With  a stunning depth of research and breadth of analysis, this film delves  deep into the inter-connected worlds of Politics, Multi-National  Corporations and the Media. Most of us have wondered at some point how  we have arrived at a situation where democracy is touted as having  created an equal society when all we see is injustice and corruption.

Politicians  openly deceive the public with the support of major corporations and  the mainstream media. Wars are waged, the environment is destroyed and  inequality is on the rise. But what is the source of these institutional  mechanisms which -- when we scratch the surface -- are so clearly  anti-democratic, so contradictory to the values we hold in common and  yet so firmly embedded that they seem beyond discussion?

Ethos  opens a Pandora's box that has it's roots in the cross-roads where  capitalism-meets-democracy, implicates every power-elite puts profit  before people and finally offers a solution whereby you -- the viewer --  can regain control using the one thing they do care about -- your cash.

Shooting Muhammad



For 21-year-old Muhammad, being a Palestinian in an Israeli university  means checkpoint after checkpoint  and never far away, the endless wall. It means no friends, no drinks after lessons and the constant threat of  violence.

That seems tough enough but the very act of going to  university on an Israeli settlement divides him against himself. Muhammads challenging life spills out in this fast and vibrant  narrative. Can he overcome the odds to find fame, fortune or will it  just end in another wall? See the full documentary

The End of Poverty


The aphorism "The poor are always with us" dates back to the New Testament, but while the phrase is still sadly apt in the 21st century, few seem to be able to explain why poverty is so widespread. 

Activist filmmaker Philippe Diaz examines the history and impact of economic inequality in the third world in the documentary The End of Poverty?, and makes the compelling argument that it's not an accident or simple bad luck that has created a growing underclass around the world. 

Diaz traces the growth of global poverty back to colonization in the 15th century, and features interviews with a number of economists, sociologists, and historians who explain how poverty is the clear consequence of free-market economic policies that allow powerful nations to exploit poorer countries for their assets and keep money in the hands of the wealthy rather than distributing it more equitably to the people who have helped them gain their fortunes. 

Diaz also explores how wealthy nations (especially the United States) seize a disproportionate share of the world's natural resources, and how this imbalance is having a dire impact on the environment as well as the economy.

Thanks to their  efforts, and despite the Israeli ban on foreign correspondents and  humanitarian aid workers to cover and witness operation "Cast Lead" on  the ground, a group of international volunteers: self organised members  of the International Solidarity Movement were present in Gaza when the  bombing started on December, 27th 2009.

Together with two international  correspondents from Al Jazeera International (Ayman Mohyeldin and  Sherine Tadros), they were the only foreigners who managed to write,  film and report for several radio stations what was happening inside the  besieged Palestinian strip. Read more.

The second one, "The Reduction", refers to the evil relationship between the Chilean State and the Mapuche People; the consequences of forcing a determined development model to people who live according to other laws and beliefs.

The third block is entitled "Reform and Counter Reform", and it considers the diverse policies of land tenancy and use, and their different impact on indigenous peoples in Chile. Read more + high resolution video.

PhD Candidate Neurophychology, NYC Neuromodulation: The New Science of Shifting Consciousness Without doubt, this “one-sided” mode of dealing with the problem is due largely to the pernicious Western practice of subordinating consciousness, or regarding it as a “byproduct” of molecular motion. –(H. P. Blavatsky, SD I:327) Are our Consciousness and Behavior merely the by-products of molecules? Who or what affects Consciousness? What are the Emerging Paradigms in Neuroscience? Serotonin, dopamine, neurotransmitters, A.D.D., and autism are the new buzz words in the emerging neuro-vernacular.

Neuromodulation is a powerful new wave that is sweeping discussions of cellular medicine. H.P.B. heralded the necessity to look beyond the byproducts of molecular behavior for the substrates of consciousness. Ms. Kerekhazi surveys the work of key researchers investigating the molecules that affect human behavior including neurologists, neurochemists, neurobiologists, neurogenomists, neuro-imagers and other important neuroscientists and healers, who are all developing paradigms that affect the development of medicines, supplements and therapies intending to either help regulate or normalize pathological behaviors. Are current theories too reductionist?

Psychiaters: driekwart van de patiënten slikt ten onrechte antidepressiva

Het gebruik van medicijnen tegen depressie zou dus drastisch omlaag moeten. Dat stelt Aartjan Beekman, hoogleraar psychiatrie aan het VU Medisch centrum en psychiater in de Valeriuskliniek te Amsterdam, in de VPRO-thema Iedereen depressief die dinsdagavond om 20.25 te zien is op Nederland 2.

Beekman, die onderzoek doet naar de oorzaken van depressie en de gevolgen voor de volksgezondheid en de economie, is een van de deskundigen in het programma die hun licht laten schijnen over de vraag waarom in Nederland zoveel mensen aan een vorm van depressie lijden en daarvoor medicatie gebruiken.

This is the story of the frustrating, spirited battle of a people dedicated to bringing their communities back to life.

Rising from Ruins is set in the spring of 2008, three years after Katrina, finds many communities still lack basic local services such as grocery stores, gas stations and banks. Yet, government support and financial breaks for large chain stores - including tax-free land and buildings - have resulted in small, local businesses being forced to subsidize their competition through the assessment of higher property taxes.

Compounding the struggle for the small outfits is decreased sales due to competition and an inability to compete with lower prices offered by the larger stores. This is the story of the frustrating, spirited battle of a people passionately dedicated to bringing their communities back to life in an enduring, sustainable way.
