തവക്കുല്‍ കര്‍മാന്‍ - വിപ്ലവത്തിന്റെ വനിതാ വസന്തം


തവക്കുല്‍ കര്‍മാന്‍ - വിപ്ലവത്തിന്റെ വനിതാ വസന്തം 

ഹഫീസുല്ല കെ വി 

2011 ജനുവരിയിലെ ഒരു സായാഹ്നം, ഞാന്‍ എന്റെ കമ്പനിയിലെ, ഹൈദര്‍ , ഖാലിദ്‌, അബ്ദുള്ള എന്നിവരുമായി സന്‍ആ  യൂനിവേര്‍സിറ്റി  പരിസരത്ത് കൂടി യാത്ര ചെയ്യുകയായിരുന്നു. ടുനീഷ്യന്‍ വിപ്ലവതിന്റെ അലയൊലികള്‍ അങ്ങിങ്ങായി അടിച്ചു കൊണ്ടിരുന്നു. ഈജിപ്തിലെ വിപ്ലവം ആ സമയത്ത് അതിന്റെ ശൈഷവത്തിലാണ്.  സ്വാഭാവികമായും ഞങ്ങളുടെ ചര്‍ച്ചയില്‍ ടുണീഷ്യ യും കടന്നു വന്നു. ബിന്‍ അലി സൗദിയിലേക്ക്‌ ഓടിപ്പോയത്, യമാനികള്‍ക്ക് ചിരിക്ക് വക നല്‍കുന്ന കാര്യമായിരുന്നു, ഇവിടത്തെ മാധ്യമങ്ങളൊക്കെ അത് ഗംഭീരമായിആഘോഷിക്കുകയും ചെയ്തു. സംസാരിക്കുന്നതിനിടയില്‍ വാഹനം യൂനിവേര്‍സിറ്റി മൈതാനതിനടുത്തെത്തി, അവിടെ ചെറിയൊരാള്‍ക്കൂട്ടം, കഷ്ടിച്ച് പത്തു-പതിനഞ്ചു പേര്‍ വരും അവര്‍ ,  ഞാന്‍ ഹൈദറിനോട് ചോദിച്ചു എന്താ കാര്യം എന്ന് . ഹൈദര്‍ തമേശ രൂപേണ പറഞ്ഞു അത് യമന്‍  വിപ്ലവത്തിന്റെ തുടക്കമാണെന്ന്. പൊതുവേ ഭരണ പക്ഷ പാര്‍ട്ടിക്കാരനായ ഖാലിദ്‌ അത് പുചിച്ചു തള്ളി, 'യമനില്‍ ഇതൊന്നും നടക്കില്ല' 
എനിക്ക് ഇതിനെക്കുറിച്ച്‌ കൂടുതല്‍ അറിയാന്‍ താല്പര്യമായി, പിന്നീട് ഓഫീസില്‍ എത്തിയപ്പോള്‍ ഞാന്‍ ഹൈദറിനോട് വിശദമായി സംസാരിച്ചു. ഹൈദര്‍ പറഞ്ഞു തുടങ്ങി, തവക്കുലിനെക്കുറിച്ച്. (അപ്പോഴാണ്‌ ഈ നാമം  ഞാന്‍ ആദ്യമായി കേള്‍ക്കുന്നത്.) "2007 മുതല്‍ എല്ലാ ചൊവ്വാഴ്ചയും സന്‍ആ യൂണിവേര്‍സിറ്റി പരിസരത്ത് തന്റെ ഭര്‍ത്താവും മൂന്നു കുട്ടികളുമായി, പ്ലക്കാര്‍ഡും പിടിച്ചു  വന്നിരിക്കുന്ന തവക്കുലിന്റെ കഥ" !. ഒന്ന് കൂടി പറഞ്ഞു  The 2011

Top 10 Must-See Occupy Wall Street Videos

Top 10 Must-See Occupy Wall Street Videos [Slideshow]
Since the very beginning of the Occupy Wall Street, many supporters have been appalled by the lack of attention paid to it by the mainstream media. Some news outlets have belittled OWS participants for exercising their right to free speech, and made excuses for those who have used violence against peaceful protesters.
Police departments around the country have reciprocated by hindering journalist access to OWS encampments, and arresting or even harming reporters trying to document evictions.
There was a time when these tactics might have actually undermined the movement. But not today.
Thanks to mobile devices and high speed internet, every single person that attends or participates is a journalist. Phones and cameras record rallies, marches, speeches, arrests, and attacks, and publish them on the internet within moments. Some have even video taped their own arrests and tweeted about conditions from inside police vans.
We no longer need to depend on the mainstream media to know what’s really going on. The revolution might not be televised, but you can still watch it happen.


On the following are the 10 Occupy Wall Street videos that rocked the internet and energized the movement.

One Billion Cars Now on World’s Roads


One Billion Cars Now on World’s Roads


One Billion Cars Now on World’s Roads

Driven by demand from countries like China, India and Brazil, the global market for automobiles is accelerating faster than ever. According to an analysis from the auto trade journal Ward’s, there are now over one billion cars, light-, medium- and heavy-duty trucks on roads around the world, up from 980 million at the end of 2009.
In just half a year, the global auto fleet expanded by around 35 million vehicles. That’s the second-biggest increase ever.
The U.S. is still has the biggest population of cars and trucks – one for every 1.3 people in the country. But the American fleet is not growing much, only about 1% a year. The explosion in automobile deployments is coming from China, where registrations grew by 27.5%, bringing the country’s vehicle population to 78 million. That increase was more than half of the total global expansion, according to Ward’s.
The leap in registrations gave China the world’s second-largest vehicle population, pushing it ahead of Japan, with 73.9 million units, for the first time.
India’s vehicle population underwent the second-largest growth rate, up 8.9% to 20.8 million units, compared with 19.1 million in 2009.
Brazil experienced the second largest volume increase after China, with 2.5 million additional vehicle registrations in 2010.
China put 16.8 million vehicles on the road in 2010. Industry analysts were forecasting another 15% jump in sales in 2011, but the market slumped after the government stopped providing subsidies for car buyers in order to temper the market. Even so, China’s vehicle population could surpass America’s in just a few years.
According to the International Transport Forum, the global vehicle fleet could reach 2.5 billion by 2050. No doubt that those cars and trucks will be much more efficient than today’s vehicles, especially with China and America setting tighter fuel standards.  And many of them will be electric-drive vehicles.  But another doubling of the global market — even with an increase in efficiency — means massive increases in greenhouse gas emissions.
Auto industry executives everywhere are giddy with joy; meanwhile, those concerned about climate change wonder if we have the wisdom to take our foot off the fossil-fuel accelerator

5 Things About Breast Cancer You Should Take to Heart

5 Things About Breast Cancer You Should Take to Heart 


5 Things About Breast Cancer You Should Take to Heart
As a triple-negative breast cancer survivor, there’s a lot I could tell you about the process. In fact, this is my 20th blog post on the topic. But the most important things I want you to take away from this series are really quite simple. I hope you take them to heart.



1. Touch yourself. Be familiar with your breasts. Get to know them like the back of your hand. Like the majority of breast cancer patients I’ve met or spoken to in this past year, I’m the one who discovered my breast lump.
2. Take breast lumps seriously. If you find a lump in your breast, don’t give in to the temptation to dismiss it. Breast cancer can happen to you. Even if you never smoked. Even if you eat right. Even if you think you’re making all the right choices. Even if there’s never been a case of cancer in your family. Even if …
3. Call the doctor. Don’t waste precious time. Sure, you’re busy, but that’s a terrible reason to die. Ignorance is not bliss. If it turns out to be a false alarm, then whew! Now treat yourself to something special for your troubles. If it turns out to be cancer, early treatment may greatly increase your chances of long-term survival.
4. Cancer treatment is a bitch. So is premature death. Remember what’s at stake for you and your loved ones. You’re tougher than you think. Be an active patient. Learn all you can, question doctors, and make informed decisions based on fact, not fear.
5. Never stop living. No matter how bad you feel. No matter if you’re bald as a newborn baby and people look at you funny or if food has lost its allure or if you’ve lost weight and your clothes hang funny or if you’re missing a breast or two and your prosthesis is the wrong size or whatever else is out of whack. You have no idea how long you’ll be here — just like every other human being on the planet, whether they realize it or not. As long as you’re alive … live.
