Ugly Politicians

I watched the News for once today and after a good coverage on Dagotiere, there was another one on the Prime Minister.  By what I heard from it, he is the new super hero who has constructed a R120 Million center for old persons, a five star complex with swimming pool and so on.  Old people are falling at his feet to show their gratitude.

My point is he used our money for a Rs 120 Million complex that would serve a very little minority of old people (I may guess who that minority is.). I think that the money could have been used to build 20 smaller complex in each area and our elders could really have a place to meet and enjoy themselves without having to move such long distances.

Anyway what really annoyed me was the coverage of the event. There was a red carpet with the elders on both side welcoming the Prime Minister and thanking him. There were accolades, kisses and those old persons even fell at his feet. This is a sign of respect normally attributed to elders… And the reporter was showing all this(for around 10 mins) as if it was some normal thing. I personally felt bad. It was pure propaganda and nothing more, and this should not happen in a democratic country.  I hope there will be another political party coming up with youngsters and new way of doing things.

A Mauritian Printing Site

I want to setup a site online for students mainly so that they can launch a print at the ease of their home. I been analyzing the idea and I really think this system would help a lot of students return their reports or project on time.

Uni students and I’m one of them, we always tend to wait for the last minute to finish reports. This leave us with the two hours left before classes start to print and bind…

I want to put the site live by the end of the year so that these students could launch their prints before leaving home and go and collect it at Rose-Hill or other places where the print was sent.

Can it work? Yeah surely… 😀

I just don’t understand…

We are all hearing about the swine flu these days and while watching a french debate yesterday, I heard that France has spent 1.5 Billion Euro on the swine flu.  This seems really a big sum and I’ve decided to find out more on the internet, and while surfing I read some very disturbing materials.

Media :

I stated out by making some searches on Google news to know more about all this and compare it to famine.  I searched for swine flu and famine on Google news and there are 47,835 articles talking about swine flu over the last month and there are 2,437 articles on famine for the same period.   Are we not missing the point here or I am not understanding it all?? There are 30 times more articles on swine flu and those on famine are not even reporting about current famine in Africa!

Figures :

Just for some statistics, here are the figures. I found this article that says there are 1,800 deaths, maybe the number has increased but take a look at this one or this one!  There are 25,000 children dying every day because of poverty, hunger or diseases and 800 million people suffer from hunger in the world.  As far as I know most of us who get swine flu will recover within days, but those children are dying every minute.  Why does the World Health Organization talks so much about the flu and not about famine or other major problem.

Is the WHO and the media promoting the pharmaceutic industry because they want to make rich people fear for their lives and pay to be saved?  Am I missing something? I hope so, but I just don’t understand those figures.  I’ve checked these links several times cause it just seems insane.
