I know I'm ignorant, but can you please tell me what is the real and the causes of the gaza conflict? by Anonymous

fotojournalismus:

This is a great piece from New Yorker written by Rashid Khalidi, which I think worth reading, and take it as an answer to your question please. 

"What happens when you imprison 1.8 million people in a hundred and forty square miles, about a third of the area of New York City, with no control of borders, almost no access to the sea for fishermen, no real way in or out, and with drones buzzing overhead night and day — is that, eventually, the ghetto will fight back. It was true in Soweto and Belfast, and it is true in Gaza. We might not like Hamas or some of its methods, but that is not the same as accepting the proposition that Palestinians should supinely accept the denial of their right to exist as a free people in their ancestral homeland."

Illegal immigrants for the most part, they aren’t working under the table. They use fake social security numbers, and pay taxes (FICA) on every dollar they make. At tax time, they do not file, and end up forfeiting billions of dollars in unclaimed returns. As a side note, they also pay rent where they live, and so contribute to the local and state tax coffers that way. They pay sales tax when they buy things, which is also a major contribution. Undocumented workers aren’t masked criminals. They’re just people who want to work.

Shortly after Kathryn Tucker started RedRover, an app that showcases local events for kids, she pitched the idea to an angel investor at a New York tech event. But it didn’t go over well. When she finished her pitch, the investor said he didn’t invest in women.

When she asked why, he told her. “I don’t like the way women think,” he said. “They haven’t mastered linear thinking.” To prove his point, he explained that his wife could never prioritize her to-do lists properly. And then, as if he was trying to compliment her, he told Tucker she was different. “You’re more male,” he said.

Tucker didn’t need to hear any more. “I said, ‘Thanks very much,’ walked out, and never spoke to him again,” she recalled earlier this year, as part of a panel discussion on “fundraising while female” at the annual Internet Week conference in New York.

Former Ohio governor Ted Strickland tried to live on minimum wage. It didn’t go well.

Former Democratic governor of Ohio Ted Strickland tried to live on minimum wage for a week and, in his own words, he “didn’t make it.”

In an op-ed for POLITICO, Strickland explains how he failed in his attempt to live for just seven days on $77, the amount the “Live the Wage” campaign estimates is left in a 40-hour minimum wage employee’s weekly pay of $290 after accounting for taxes and housing. Strickland, a Harvard fellow and well-off political operative, was clearly unprepared for just how quickly expenses added up. He had spent his $77 by Thursday after realizing his meager budget left him without the money necessary even to pay for public transportation.
