Qatar – Education as a Weapon | New Eastern Outlook

There seems to be no limit to Qataris tossing around their wealth. This tiny kingdom with 2.6 million inhabitants is full of ridiculously lavish gold-plated palaces, most of them built with terrible taste. It is overflowing with Lamborghini racing cars and Rolls Royce limousines, and now, even with ludicrously wasteful air-conditioned sidewalks (cold air blows from below, into the 35C heat).

Ruled by the House of Thani, the State of Qatar is truly a strange place: according to the latest count conducted in early 2017, its total population was 2.6 million, of which 313,000 were Qatari citizens and 2.3 million ‘expatriates’, both the low-wage migrant workers, and the lavishly remunerated Western professionals.

Foreigners are doing everything; sweeping the floors, cleaning garbage, cooking, taking care of babies, flying Qatar Airways planes, performing medical surgeries and building office towers. Manual laborers are discriminated against; beaten, cheated, humiliated. Many migrant workers have been dying under “mysterious circumstances”. But they are still coming, mainly because Qatar, with its GDP per capita of $128,702, is the richest country on earth, and because there is huge demand for hundreds of different professions. Never mind that the perks are for the ‘natives’ only, while the minimum wage for foreigners is only around $200 per month.

Locked in a bitter dispute with its neighbors, including Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Qatar is moving closer and closer to its best allies – the United States and United Kingdom. The Al Udeid Air Base hosts over 100 aircraft of the United States Air Force, Royal Air Force, and other Gulf War Coalition partners. It accommodates the forward headquarters of United States Central Command, No. 83 Expeditionary Air Group RAF, and the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing of the USAF. Presently, at least 11,000 U.S. servicemen are permanently located here. Al Udeid Air Base is considered the most important military airport in the region, used for operations in countries such as Syria and Afghanistan.

Qatar has been playing an extremely important role in destabilizing Syria, and other countries in the Middle East. It has been spreading fundamentalist religious dogmas, as well as extreme capitalist creeds.

Qatar has plenty of money, and it uses some of its funds for various ‘educational programs’,

‘Education is only numbers’: French Alps school enrolls SHEEP as pupils to save class (PHOTOS)

‘education-is-only-numbers’:-french-alps-school-enrolls-sheep-as-pupils-to-save-class-(photos)

09-05-19 02:43:00,

The small French Alps village of Crets en Belledonne is counting sheep, but not to cure insomnia. Instead, they’re enrolling them in school to make up for low attendance.

Yes, you read that right: the Jules Ferry elementary school registered some 15 sheep as pupils on Tuesday in order to fulfill French regulations which set quotas for the number of students required at a school.

“National education is unfortunately only numbers,” said Gaelle Laval, one of the parents behind the odd initiative. “So now, with this surge in numbers, we are good.”

The elementary school risked losing state funding for one of its eleven classes when its enrollment figure fell below the required threshold, prompting residents to symbolically register the animals to ensure the quota was met.

Human students at Jules Ferry were elated by the arrival of their new classmates.

“To have sheep in the school, it is super!” said one eight-year-old student. “I’m ready to take one or two in my class. I’m sure they will work well.”

The effort was organized by three parents, but the town’s mayor, Jean-Louis Maret, has come out in support, officially recognizing the animals as students at the school.

The sheep were provided by a local farmer named Michel Girerd, one of just 4,000 residents in the small town.

UK: Gay, Trans ‘Sex Education’ Will Be Mandatory for Five-Year-Olds.

uk-gay-trans-8216sex-education8217-will-be-mandatory-for-five-year-olds.

27-02-19 05:08:00,

The UK Conservative government is set to announce plans for the introduction of lessons on homosexuality and transgenderism for primary school students, despite an official petition against the move, signed by over 100,000.

The Sunday Times reports that the new curriculum has been finalized after a six-month consultation with the Department of Education, and will be rolled out across UK schools starting from the 2020-21 educational year.

It will be taught to pupils from the age of five, and it will be illegal for parents to take their children out of the classroom for the lessons in secondary school, meaning that at least a term’s worth of sex education classes – and likely far more – will be attended by each student.

A popular petition to parliament demanding that the opt-out be retained for the length of the child’s school education will be debated in the House of Commons on Monday, though it is not expected to affect the schedule for the implementation of the legislation.

The proposal has encountered resistance from conservative communities, including some Muslims and Jews. In a letter expressing opposition, prominent rabbis expressed fears that some parents would rather take their children out of the education system altogether – which they are allowed to do – rather than subject them to the new curriculum.

Questions discussed during the non-assessed lessons, as listed in the current proposals for the curriculum, will include: “When is it OK to let someone touch me?” for 3-year-olds, and “Why are we all different? Is it OK to be different?” at age seven. At 11, children will discuss “What is the difference between transvestite and trans-sexual?” and by 16, they will be told “how to disclose positive HIV status to a sexual partner, family and friends.

Among the teaching materials for primary school children who are currently being trialed at a predominantly-Muslim school in Birmingham are ‘Tango Makes Three,’ a book about two gay penguins who nurture an egg taken from another family, and ‘My Princess Boy,’ which celebrates a dark-skinned child who loves to cross-dress.

The other aims of the curriculum include educating students on issues that have become more prevalent in Britain over last two decades,

In diesem von acTVism ins Deutsche übersetzten TRNN-Bericht fasst Gregory Wilpert kurz die moderne Geschichte Venezuelas zusammen. Entgegen der Behauptung vieler westlicher Medien, dass Venezuela das “Juwel Lateinamerikas” gewesen sei, bevor Hugo Chávez 1998 gewählt wurde, legt Wilpert Fakten dar, die diesen Mythos widerlegen und die Vergangenheit Venezuelas adäquater beschreiben.

Education And The Dismantling Of The Mind | Light On Conspiracies – Revealing the Agenda

education-and-the-dismantling-of-the-mind-light-on-conspiracies-8211-revealing-the-agenda

03-02-19 10:00:00,

By Jon Rappoport

Are there any States in the Union that allow public schools to opt out of providing sex education to children?

Of course, a counter-argument would be made that, although there was once a time when our country abounded in responsible two-parent families, that’s not the case anymore. Therefore, education about sex is lacking. Therefore, schools have to step into the breach and supply what is missing.

Otherwise, children won’t know about STDs, pregnancy, contraception, etc.

Over the last 40 years or so, school systems, under the aegis of government, have expanded their role. Using “duty” as the prow, these institutions have generated enormous programs to teach children what to think about everything from aluminum cans to bestiality.

Because it’s “right” and “important” and there is a “duty.”

BOOK AD
Coup d’etat in Slowmotion
by Ole Dammegard

For almost 30 years investigator Ole Dammegård has been on a quest to find the truth behind some of the worst conspiracies in the history of world – such as the murders US President John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, John Lennon and the blowing up of m/s Estonia killing at least 852 innocent people. This has taken him on a very frightening and dangerous journey into unknown territories. What has been claimed as acts by lone madmen has turned out to be connected to the International military industrial complex and top level high finance, all sanctioned locally behind dark smoke screens. This ground breaking book focuses on the assassination of the Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, who was gunned down in February 1986. In Volume I secret agents, mercenaries, professional assassins, top politicians and innocent scapegoats fill the pages of this explosive book which shows a side of Sweden and the western world earlier glimpsed by very few. This is not the private opinion of one individual, but the disclosure of a puzzle so vast that it blows your mind. Let the detailed content speak for itself, but do not accept it uncritically. Read it – make up your own mind – then spread it.

Liegt die Erde im Sterben? Was läuft schief, was können wir tun? Teil 1

Ein erstes Gespräch über ein ganz heikles Thema: Es ist mittlwerweile offizieller Stand der wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnis, dass die Ozonschichten des Planeten so angegriffen sind, dass in schon 10 Jahren ein Leben aufgrund der ungehindert eindringenden kosmischen Strahlung schwierig werden könnte. Ursache dafür sind aber nicht pupsende Kühe, zuviel Haarspray oder böse Dieselautos, sondern ganz andere, viel größere Machenschaften und grundlegende Eigenschaften unserer derzeitigen Ziviilsation.

The Catastrophic Consequences Of Climate Engineering ( Dane Wigington Geoengineering Watch )

Our hope and goal is for this video to be shared far and wide, DO NOT re-upload this copyrighted video without prior written permission and conditions from GeoengineeringWatch.org

Climate engineering and weather warfare are ultimately one in the same. The ongoing atmospheric experiments taking place in our skies have a long history with many objectives and agendas being carried out, the equation is complex. If we are to have any chance of exposing and halting catastrophic global climate engineering operations, we must first have a clear understanding of the issue itself. The video below is by far the most complete and comprehensive presentation ever produced by GeoengineeringWatch.org. The presentation was given live at Northern California public awareness raising event. It is our hope that this video will provide a useful tool for increasing desperately needed public awareness and understanding of the critically important climate engineering issue.
It is imperative to reach a critical mass of public awareness as quickly as possible. The effort to expose and halt geoengineering operations can only be waged with an awakened population, time is not on our side. Sharing credible data from a credible source is the most effective and efficient way to wake others who are not yet aware of the issue. Make your voice heard, make every day count.

TEIL 2: Saddam Husseins Vernehmer bei der CIA enthüllt Lügen des Irakkriegs

TEIL 2: In diesem von Democracy Now! produzierten und von acTVism Munich ins Deutsche übertragene Video setzen Amy Goodman und Juan González das Gespräch mit John Nixon fort, dem CIA-Analysten, der Saddam Hussein nach seiner Gefangennahme vor rund 15 Jahren als Erster verhört hat. Nixon offenbart, dass vieles von dem, was die CIA zum Zeitpunkt des Einmarsches über Saddam Hussein zu wissen glaubte, falsch war. Unter anderem ergab Nixons Vernehmung von Hussein, dass Hussein bis 2003 die Macht weitgehend an seine Berater übergeben hatte, so dass er sich auf das Schreiben eines Buches konzentrieren konnte, und auch, dass es kein Programm für Massenvernichtungswaffen gab. Hussein warnte auch vor dem Aufstieg eines „sunnitischen Extremismus“ in der Region, verursacht durch den Einmarsch der USA. Diese Warnungen, so Nixon, wurden von den höchsten Stellen in Washington ignoriert.

Education Without Boundaries: This School In Finland Is Breaking Down Walls & Creating Open Spaces

By Fattima Mahdi Truth Theory

Imagine a class where there are no scripted lessons, children are allowed to have fun, giggle and even daydream from time to time.

We’re creating viewer supported news. Become a member! Click Here!

Finland are known for their repeated success in national education rankings, their approach to schooling is radical and features a number of practices not widely used in the UK or US. Children start formal education at age 7, there are short school hours, light homework and no exams.

“There is a lot of variety in learning situations,” Reino, Tapaninen, chief architect at the National Agency for Education said. “Teachers can decide at the beginning of the month or week, or even at the beginning of the school day, how they want to work.”

Kastelli School and Community Centre located in Oulu, Finland, is one of 100 schools that have decided to take it one step further. They have adopted the flexible mindset that open learning spaces are better than walled-off classrooms. As a result, the school incorporates an open plan model, mixing students of different ages and cross-teaching subjects. The school’s interior features long hallways, soft chairs, big cushions, moveable walls and partitions for private discussions.

Reino Tapaninen, chief architect at the National Agency for Education said: “We’ve given up the old type of school desk and chair and have a real diversity now.” To make sure that there is minimal noise disruption, an acoustic designer works on the layout of the school. “We are using more acoustic materials on the ceilings, while textile flooring has become more popular — the materials are much better than they used to be, and now far easier to clean.” Tapaninen goes on to say that: “We now have what we call ‘shoe-less schools,’ where pupils either change into softer shoes or simply wear socks when they come indoors.”

Will the architecture lead to a better scholastic experience? We’ll just have to wait and see. What we do know is that there are certainly a few lessons to be learned from Finland’s radical approach to learning.

Saddam Husseins Vernehmer bei der CIA enthüllt Lügen des Irakkriegs – TEIL 1

TEIL1: In diesem von Democracy Now! produzierten und von acTVism München ins Deutsche übertragene Video enthüllt John Nixon, der CIA-Analyst, der Saddam Hussein nach seiner Gefangennahme vor ca. 14 Jahren verhört hat, dass vieles von dem, was die CIA zum Zeitpunkt der Invasion über Saddam Hussein zu wissen glaubte, falsch war. Unter anderem ergab Nixons Vernehmung von Hussein, dass Hussein bis 2003 die Macht weitgehend an seine Berater übergeben hatte, so dass er sich auf das Schreiben eines Buches konzentrieren konnte, und auch, dass es kein Programm für Massenvernichtungswaffen gab. Diese Warnungen, so Nixon, wurden von den höchsten Behörden in Washington ignoriert.
