Nuclear Weapons

A world war has begun.

by Kitty Jellinek
Break the silence. by John Pilger I have been filming in the Marshall Islands, which lie north of Australia, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Whenever I tell people where I have been, they ask, “Where is that?” If I offer a clue by referring to “Bikini”, they say, “You mean the swimsuit.” Few seem aware that the bikini swimsuit was named to celebrate the nuclear explosions that destroyed Bikini island. Sixty-six nuclear devices were exploded by the United States in the Marshall Islands between 1946 and 1958 — the equivalent of 1.6 Hiroshima bombs every day for twelve […]

What does Local Community Mean To You?

by Kitty Jellinek
When I looked up the term Local Community  – Found the following definition: A group of individuals that interact within their immediate surroundings. A typical local community consists of business operators, public agency staff and residents, and their interactions can include the sharing of resources, information and assistance, as well as the establishment of commercial relationships between local businesses and consumers. Cited from: http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/local-community.html However, what makes individuals interact with their immediate surroundings? Could it be the warm fuzzy feeling people get when they feel that they belong that inspires them to interact in a useful way – in turn […]

Important Worldwide Community Notice – Cyber War

by Kitty Jellinek
Today I received, what I consider to be an important message from Sam Volkering. War. By definition it’s an act of aggression by a country against another. You don’t need to look far today for examples. It’s pretty safe to assume Russia and the Ukraine are at war by that definition, even if they haven’t declared it ‘officially’. What started with Russian forces in Crimea spilled out into Ukraine. I imagine the civilians in the path of the conflict aren’t terribly comforted by the governments telling them it isn’t an ‘official’ war. If you ask the average punter in the […]

Social Media Lynch Mob Mentality.

by Kitty Jellinek
It is horrendous to see the amount of people on social media sites like facebook and twitter; setting themselves up as judge and jury, in reaction to news stories around the world. At a time when there are so many displaced people, who have gone through hell, lost their families and communities, you’d think that compassion and support would be at an all time high – not so! At least that is the impression you get when reading comments on social media sites. The refugee dilemma sporns thousands of comments like this: “Are you kidding me? Why the f^^^ should […]
