Ten Criminal Companies, Social Menace

In Business on September 2, 2014 at 08:38

The Corporate Mantra is Profit, not people.

 

Man is secondary, humanitarianism takes a second seat to Business.

 

There is this oft-repeated saying in the business circles,

 

‘Choose either Business or Righteousness’

 

It is implied that one can be dishonest in Business.

 

And Businesses ae often so.

 

To scratch their guilty conscience, they now have something called as ‘Social responsibility, where they spend a few Dimes, which is Tax Free of course, to engage in highly publicized social service like planting Trees, spare .0001 of their profits for charity( at the same time they inform you through advertisements that they are helping people because of your purchase, thereby increasing their Business volume).

 

To me anything, especially business with out Ethics is Criminal.

 

Have they stopped at this?

 

In chasing a few dollars, they deliberately harm the society and the individuals.

 

Have a look at these Corporate Companies.

 

1.

 

Coca Cola corporation has wrought devastation in India, where its factories use up to one million liters of water per day, leaving tens of thousands of nearby residents dry during the drought months. Then the factories dispose of the wastewater improperly, contaminating whatever water is left.  A lawsuit in 2001 accused Coca Cola of hiring paramilitaries in Columbia which suppressed unionization in the cola plant there through intimidation, torture and murder

 

2.Pfizer.

Pfizer decided to use Nigerian children as guinea pigs. In 1996, Pfizer traveled to Kano, Nigeria to try out an experimental antibiotic on third-world diseases such as measles, cholera, and bacterial meningitis. They gave trovafloxacin to approximately 200 children. Dozens of them died in the experiment, while many others developed mental and physical deformities. According to the EPA, Pfizer can also proudly claim to be among the top ten companies in America causing the most air pollution.

3.Exxonobil

The Political Economy Research Institute ranks ExxonMobil sixth among corporations emitting airborne pollutants in the United States. ExxonMobil counters not by cleaning up its act, but by funding scientific studies  which refute global warming. ExxonMobil was targeted by human rights activists in 2001 when a lawsuit alleged that ExxonMobil hired Indonesian military who raped, tortured and murdered while serving as security at their plant in Aceh.

4.Caterpillar sells all kind of tractors, trucks and machinery — including many of the vehicles, ships and submarines used by the U.S. military. Caterpillar also supplies the Israeli army with bulldozers which are used to demolish Palestinian homes — sometimes with the people still inside.

5.Monsanto.

Big Agra makes the list with Monsanto, pushers of genetically modified foods, bovine growth hormones, and poison. Monsanto’s list of evils includes creating the terminator” seed which creates plants which never fruit or flower so that farmers must purchase them anew yearly, lobbying to have “hormone-free” labels removed from the labels of milk and infant milk replacer (through bovine growth hormone is believed to be a cancer-accelerator) as well as a wide range of environmental and human health violations associated with use of Monsanto’s poisons — most notably “Agent Orange.” Between 1965 and 1972, Monsanto illegally dumped thousands of tons of highly toxic waste in UK landfills.

6.Nestle.

Sticky-sweet image aside, Nestle’s crimes against man and nature include massive deforestation in Borneo — the habitat of the critically endangered orangutan — to grow palm oil, and buying milk from farms illegally-seized by a despot in Zimbabwe. Nestle drew fire from environmentalists for its ridiculous claims that bottled water is “eco-friendly when the exact opposite is true.

7.British Petroleum.
Who can forget 2010’s oil rig explosion in the Gulf Coast which killed 11 workers and thousands of birds, sea turtles, dolphins and other animals, effectively destroying the fishing and tourism industry in the region? This was not BP’s first crime against nature. In fact, between January 1997 and March 1998, BP was responsible for a whopping 104 oil spills.

8.Dyncorp.

This privatized military company is often hired by the U.S. government to protect American interests overseas — and so the government can claim no responsibility for Dyncorp’s actions.  Dyncorp is best known for its brutality in impoverished countries, for trafficking in child sex slaves, for slaughtering civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan

9.Haliburton,

a huge “oilfield services” company, profited big time from the U.S.’s invasion of Iraq when Cheney called in his boys to quell burning oil wells — and to “help” the Iraq oil ministry pump and distribute oil. Haliburton has also been implicated in countless oil spills, including the BP disaster of 2010.

10.Chevron.

Chevron (then Texaco) discharged 18 billion gallons of toxic water into the rain forests of Ecuador without any remediation, destroying the livelihoods of local farmers and sickening indigenous populations. Chevron has also done plenty of polluting right here in the U.S.: In 1998, Richmond, California sued Chevron for illegally bypassing waste water treatments and contaminating local water supplies, ditto in New Hampshire in 2003. Chevron was responsible for the death of several Nigerians who protested the company’s polluting, exploiting presence in the Nigerian Delta. Chevron paid the local militia, known for its human rights abuses, to squash the protests, and even supplied them with choppers and boats. The military opened fire on the protesters, then burned their villages to the ground.

Become Pregnant By His Stare

In Interesting and funny on July 26, 2014 at 14:35

A Croatian from Zagreb claims that  he can make you pregnant if you stare at his eyes, if ca even be his photo in the web!

 

Funny fac is that people do belive him even on this count.

 

A good match for our on Swamijis and self -styled Gurus who talk about addressing UN and the EU!

 

Enjoy nuggets about him and his site.

Braco Stares.gif

Braco Stares.

 

A 47-year-old man from Zagreb in Croatia known only as Braco (pronounced Bratzo) has whipped up a storm of New Age followers across the globe.

How does he do it? With his eyes, apparently.

As reported by Gawker, His seemingly unassuming optics have had an extraordinary range of miracles attributed to them including exploding a woman’s ovaries to heal them.

He achieves these through mass ‘gazing sessions’ where loving followers gaze at this mysterious healer.

Here a just a three of his bounty of miracles:

1 .A DVD of Braco played repeatedly on a DVD player that previously did not have the capability to play on a loop.

2. A woman did not scream during a gazing event event even though a yellow jacket (very scary) was climbing up and down her leg.

3. A woman woke up in the middle of the night and ‘knew’ she had to follow Braco to Hawaii and ended up liking living on a sunny tropical island.

According to promotional videos, Braco makes no money from his work and his own website makes it clear ‘he makes no claim to being a healer and does not promise to cure anyone.’

He does make one concession to his followers that people do “commonly report warm feelings and physical sensations during a gazing experience with Braco.”

 

Braco’s gaze touches his visitors with peace, silence and hope. Amazing transformations happen, and many find new power, vitality and a zest for life resulting from their experience. Braco does not teach, talk or diagnose to give treatments—he simply gazes in silence and offers his gift to visitors—independent from religion, ideology, race, color and culture.

For over 19 years, Braco has dedicated his life to giving. Over this time, more and more people have come for this unique experience to improve their lives. Today Braco travels to countries globally by invitation; including Europe, Asia, Australia, Russia, and he frequently tours in the United States. Scientists have developed various theories and explanations as to why fundamental transformations happen through “the gaze.” A number of books about Braco have also been published. But Braco just holds his peace without talking or offering explanations, focusing completely on his life task—to give and help.”

Killing Of Tamils What Is Wrong In Handling The Issue

In Sri Lanka, SriLanka, Tamils on July 25, 2014 at 20:27

Some people who are interested, definitely no politicians,in the resolution of the Sri Lanka Tamils issue have been in touch with me.

 

Tamils Raped Killed Lanka.jpg

Tamils Raped Killed Lanka.

 

Killing Of Tamils Lanka.jpg

Killing Of Tamils Lanka.

 

They are trying their best in their own way to bring in awareness among the people of world about the injustice meted out to the Tamil People in Lanka and the massacre of the Tamils in Sri Lanka.

 

These people, in their personal capacity are bringing this matter to the attention of the US Government , the Congress members of the US,Members of the

 

EU and Australia.

 

They had asked for my views on these issues.

 

My views are.

 

The Lankan issue , in my opinion, has not brought forth to the Public forcefully.

 

Mere publishing of shocking videos/images and news items of sufferings of the individuals.

 

 

The issue has not gone home to people it ought to.

 

You cross Nayudupet or Kuppam in Andhra, no body talks about this at all.

 

I am settled in Bangalore.

 

When I ask my friends in Karnataka about the Tamils issue, their answer is..

 

‘This is not new.Tamils a create problems wherever they go and they get the punishment.

 

Moreover, Sri Lankan Tamils are anti Hindus and anti Indians.

 

They killed our Prime Minister.

 

Let us talk about some thing else”

 

This is not the view of Kannadigas alone.

 

Wherever I go in the North, I get similar feedback.

 

Why?

1.Too much emphasis has been given to the word Tamils and not on the human right issue.

 

2.Why the Tamils have been treated this way and what their problems are, have not been clearly brought forth.

 

People talk about LLC and no body talks about Sirimavo agreement with India.

 

Nor the fact that the Tamils have been denied basic Rights in Lanka.

 

That they are treated as menials and second -rate citizens in their own country.

 

That their lands are grabbed.

 

Sinhalese are brought in to show that Sinhalese are in majority.

 

Their language Tamil is being slowly erased from the Island.

 

That Hinduism is systematically wiped out by destroying  Temples, Cultural Centers.

 

Employment opportunities and schooling are denied to the Tamils.

 

For the Conduct of a minor  Hindu Religious function Governmental permission is required in Tamil areas of Jaffna.

 

Children and women are raped and killed.

 

Torture , Repression and killing of people is not restricted to Tamils.

 

Now Tamils are exterminated , nearly, it is the turn of Muslims and Christians.

 

Not to leave political dissenters like JVP, or the Media.

 

The Matale Mass grave speak of the killing of JVP, it might have included Tamils as well.

 

These facts are not known to public in a manner that they can understand.

 

Pouring out emotions will be of no help.

 

This is a practical issue that needs practical approach and the first step is presentation facts and presenting them to the suitable audience who matter,

 

The issue of Lankan Tamils being anti Hindu is ill founded.

 

These are the people who propagated Shavisam and Kaumaram in Lanka and  Far East.

 

Major donors of famous temples are Lankan Tamils.

 

Then why this perception.

 

 

In Diplomacy it is not organised facts alone that guarantee people’s ears but how and through whom it is presented.

 

The Tamil issue is being presented by Karunanidhi and DK , who are known to be anti Hindus.

 

People perceive the people and the issue they promote are also anti Hindus.

 

more to follow…..

 

Human Organ Human Trafficking Price Profits

In Health on July 9, 2014 at 11:58

It is only when, under unfortunate circumstances, one needs an Organ for saving a Life, does one come to know of the scarcity of Organs available for Transplantation and the huge costs involved even in the Legal Market.

 

What many of us do not know is the illegal market in Organ Transplantation.

 

Sale of Body Parts,India.jpg

Sale of Body Parts,India.

 

Here are some facts.

 

Illegal Organ Trade Market:$0.075 Billion ($75 Million)

 

Price of Humans

 

 

Illegal Market for Human Organs,India.

 

Patients, many of whom will go toChinaIndia or Pakistan for surgery, can pay up to $200,000 (nearly £128,000) for a kidney to gangs who harvest organs from vulnerable, desperate people, sometimes for as little as $5,000.

The vast sums to be made by both traffickers and surgeons have been underlined by the arrest by Israeli police last week of 10 people, including a doctor, suspected of belonging to an international organ trafficking ring and of committing extortion, tax fraud and grievous bodily harm. Other illicit organ trafficking rings have been uncovered in India and Pakistan.

The Guardian contacted an organ broker in China who advertised his services under the slogan, “Donate a kidney, buy the new iPad!” He offered £2,500 for a kidney and said the operation could be performed within 10 days.
