Many of us have never seen what a famine looks like. Here’s as close as you’ll ever get to it. (Courtesy The Economist)

You may have seen the pictures of starving people in the Horn of Africa on your TV screens. We are all asking: how can this be happening again? Parts of Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia are facing one of the worst droughts for 60 years, and more than 12 million people are desperately in need of food, clean water and basic sanitation.

Join me in calling on world leaders to save millions of lives – today and tomorrow: 

Despite the urgency of the situation, most world leaders are responding too slowly. Immediate aid is essential. Yet at the same time we must not let them drop the ball on long term solutions as has too often happened in the past.

Thank you

I’m still working on the next post about Incest. I hope it’ll cover all bases.

Havard Reference Tool

December 18, 2010

The legends at have generously donated to ‘Mother Nature – A Satire On Gender Inequality’ in support of the eradication of global gender inequality. They have thereby become our first donors and we are proud to be associated with them. Below is no paid sponsorship message, just a heartfelt thank you!

for your complete referencing needs

Composing analytical articles, I find myself constantly having to cite all the individual websites I derive my pieces of information from. I find it usually takes a variety of information sources to create a good article. Being an online publisher, my information about gender inequality almost exclusively comes from websites; and it’s not an easy task citing them half the time!
A brilliant software I use is the Havard Reference Tool, a clever desktop gadget that shows you how to properly reference an information source, down the dot on the i! In layman’s terms, once you type in details of the bit of information you want to cite, Havard Reference Tool actually displays the correct format to you, so you don’t have to go through the horrid episodes of scratching your head in despair, calling a quarter of your phonebook for advice and searching for reference guides for dummies online (maybe it’s just me). If that’s not a handy and incredibly useful tool for a writer, I don’t know what is.
Havard Referencing Tool is so versatile, it doesn’t just let you reference books and websites but also journals and even emails! Until I started using it, I didn’t even know you could reference emails.
Softpedia, a top 500 website by Alexa traffic ranking, “guarantees that Harvard Reference Tool 4.1 is 100% Clean, which means it does not contain any form of malware… [Anton C, 2010]”. Using it means peace of mind.
In my cause to address and end global gender inequality, the Havard Reference Tool will undoubtedly be an indispensable ally to me in creating hard-hitting articles that really shock people about the realities of one of the world’s biggest human rights abuses.
