Ladies and gentlemen what you are holding in your hands right now and about to read is the Haitian people's complaint to the world; it is their will and their vision for a new Haiti. It is the dreams and hopes of the new generation; it is a tool to help guide the Haitian people in the transition from politicians that have made questionable choices to the new visionary leaders, a tool to assist them in the process of transformation from misery to prosperity and wellbeing. This is a book that going to bring to the light who are responsible for Haitian people's misery and will explain also the self-denial of a group of Haitian in Haiti and overseas for the cause of Haiti and for the benefit of the Haitian people. This book will explain an extraordinary story of an ordinary man who has vision for Haiti's struggle. His father was murdered, his mother got kidnapped and was robbed three times, all because they spoke out for a better life, and they spoke out for peace and justice in Haiti. From 1804 to 2010, exactly 206 years of independence and 206 years of calamity, humiliation, isolation and corruption, after all those years it's still raising some fundamental questions how much more the Haitian people have to endure? How long they have to wait to get help? After the earthquake, the entire world sympathized with Haiti and gave billions to leaders and to non profit organizations that has been established in this country for years to help the people and to rebuild Haiti. After four months, yet nothing has been done and in the capital I know many hurting people who haven't received any help, not even a bottle of water. In the mean time people continue to die, suffer, and among them tension starts raising high and in my point of view, I don't see any evidence that those leaders in this country has any desire to make any changes in the direction of better quality of life for the Haitian people. Today I am seeking justice in a very different and unusual way, I want to establish for the first time in Haiti rules and principles that can't be violated by anyone and prove to the world how an ordinary man can really do an extraordinary change in a country known as a land of corruption, a land of poverty and impunity.

Originally published in 1980 and now back in print, Many Voices, One World came out of hundreds of international studies and proposed reforms for global communication media to ensure a free flow of information. Prepared by the distinguished MacBride Commission--and frequently referred to as the MacBride Report--it criticized corporate control of media flows and suggested ways to make media production accessible in poorer countries. Beginning with the right of individuals and nations to communicate, this report tackled problems related to government controls, censorship, one-way flows of information, cultural dominance, and commercialization of the mass media. It called for more voices, more freedom of expression, and the protection of journalists' rights. Still widely taught and cited, the MacBride Report is a key work in the history of communication that continues to be relevant today.

Rick Santorum is a conservative committed to restoring the American dream for hardworking Americans. The runner-up for the Republican nomination for president in 2012 is running again and building grass-roots support. In this collection of columns from 2013, the former senator from Pennsylvania explains in his own words what he stands for and what his vision for America's future is. In 2012, Rick launched Patriot Voices, a community of Americans committed to promoting faith, family, freedom and opportunity. And he has taken that message to the campaign trail, where he is a voice for the voiceless. A fierce defender of the unborn, Rick believes that strong families help produce a strong economy. He believes that renewing our country’s manufacturing spirit would strengthen working families and help our struggling communities return to a path of prosperity during these tough economic times. "We must not be the party of plutocrats, country clubbers and corporate interests," Rick writes. "We must focus on ways to deliver our vision for hope and opportunity for working Americans."

A bold, lyrical collection of poems that highlight some of the most celebrated activists from around the world and throughout history. In the face of injustice, the world has always looked to brave individuals to speak up and spark change. Nelson Mandela used his voice to bring down Apartheid. Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birutè Galdikas gave a voice to the primates who couldn’t speak for themselves. The Women of Greenham Common used their collective voice to fight against preparations for nuclear war. And today’s youth—like Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, the students of Stoneman Douglas High School, and Greta Thunberg—unite their voices to stop gun violence, save the planet, and so much more. Through enlightening poems by award-winning poet and author George Ella Lyon and stunning portraits by artist Jennifer M. Potter, Voices of Justice introduces young readers to the groundbreaking work of people who fought—and continue to fight—to make the world a better place. Featuring those mentioned above along with Virginia Woolf, Dolores Huerta, Shirley Chisholm, Jasilyn Charger, Jeannette Rankin, and more, each portrait offers a vision of action and love that gets up and does something, no matter the forces ranged against it, no matter the odds.

The meanings and causes of hearing voices that others cannot hear (auditory verbal hallucinations, in psychiatric parlance) have been debated for thousands of years. Voice-hearing has been both revered and condemned, understood as a symptom of disease as well as a source of otherworldly communication. Those hearing voices have been viewed as mystics, potential psychiatric patients or simply just people with unusual experiences, and have been beatified, esteemed or accepted, as well as drugged, burnt or gassed. This book travels from voice-hearing in the ancient world through to contemporary experience, examining how power, politics, gender, medicine and religion have shaped the meaning of hearing voices. Who hears voices today, what these voices are like and their potential impact are comprehensively examined. Cutting edge neuroscience is integrated with current psychological theories to consider what may cause voices and the future of research in voice-hearing is explored.
