In the chaos of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan and the mass evacuation, a number of unaccompanied minors ended up on flights out of the country. Now comes the difficult task of reuniting them with families or helping them find new homes. Also, if you're in the market for a puffy vest this winter, you may need to be patient. The shipping bottlenecks occurring at California ports continue to have an outsized impact on US retailers like Eddie Bauer. And the world mourns the loss of pioneering Black filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles, who died on Tuesday at the age of 89 in his home in New York. Van Peebles was known as the “godfather of modern Black cinema” with themes of resistance and Black liberation.

Though the Han Chinese are in the majority, the People's Republic of China is actually quite diverse with hundreds of languages spoken within its borders and up to fifty-five officially recognized ethnic groups. One of the largest and most well-known of these are the Uyghurs, a Turkic people who have called the Northwest province of Xinjiang home for centuries. Despite their rich and lengthy history in China, however, they have endured continued persecution up to the present day and are now even being systematically wiped out because of who they are. Join me as we take a look at the vast yet complex history of the Uyghurs and the uncertain future they face in China. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/historylovescompany/support

It's time to grapple with the human rights issues ensuing in Afghanistan.To guide us in this important conversation are podcast alums Drs. Ayesha & Dean Sherzai.For those new to the show, ‘Roll On' is typically our opportunity to shift focus from my traditional fare of evergreen conversations to instead hone in on matters of contemporaneous, time-sensitive interest.Today we do just that, but with a twist, spending the entire episode grappling with the very grave plight faced by the 18 million women in Afghanistan in the wake of the United States departure. Breaking down the grip of Taliban rule, this is an exploration and round table discussion led by Team Sherzai.Experts on brain health, Alzheimer's, and neurodegenerative diseases, Drs. Sherzai have twice graced this show for deep dives on maintaining and optimizing cognitive function. But what most don't know is that Dean & Ayesha have considerable experience with Afghanistan.In 2003 Dean was appointed the Deputy Minister of Health by President Karzai, creating the most successful post-conflict healthcare system with women's empowerment at its core. Ayesha founded the Social Welfare Society for Afghan Refugees in medical school, volunteered with Doctors Without Borders' in Afghanistan during her medical training, and co-founded the Afghan Health Initiative in order to empower the Afghan diaspora with their own health.My intention for this conversation is less political—we aren't here to necessarily debate the political advisability of the U.S. withdrawal as much as the incomprehensibly botched manner in which we withdrew—and the downstream human rights implications of Afghan women in particular.Other specific topics discussed include:The history of women's rights in Afghanistan;using healthcare as a catalyst for women's empowerment;a breakdown of the imperative of the Taliban and how it functions;the role that fear plays in female oppression;what we can be done now to aid Afghan women; andhow to support celebrated female artists, scientists, politicians & leaders in Afghanistan.To read more and listen click here.

Yasmine Mohammed was born and raised in Canada, but she lived a life that few Western women could fathom.The daughter of an Egyptian and a Palestinian, she is of Arab descent and was raised Muslim. Forced to wear a hijab and adhere to a strict interpretation of the Islamic faith, Mohammed later escaped a forced, abusive marriage to an al-Qaeda operative.The atrocities that Muslim women suffer in Afghanistan are "not just an Afghanistan phenomenon," Mohammed says. "It's not just a Taliban phenomenon. You can see the exact same things happening clearly in 50 Muslim-majority countries ... [and] in the West as well."On today's edition of "Problematic Women," Mohammed shares her take on the Biden administration's disastrous withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, and what it means for Afghan women. More broadly, she addresses the feminist movement's turning a blind eye to women who are fighting real oppression.Mohammed is author of the book “Unveiled: How Western Liberals Empower Radical Islam” and the founder and president of the nonprofit Free Hearts Free Minds, which tries to help those living in a country that will persecute them for what they believe or who they love.Enjoy the show!

There are about twelve thousand Christians in Afghanistan and most, if not all, fear for their safety now that U.S Forces have officially pulled out. But even though they're a small minority, they are a brave lot, who even in the face if an impending Taliban takeover, changed the religion on their national identity cards to read, Christian, in a country where Islam is the only official religion. World Magazine's Senior Editor Mindy Belz said it was because “They wanted something to pass on to their children and to other generations, they wanted not to just be secret people who disappeared when they died.” On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Belz talks about the dangers now faced by the Christians and religious minorities in Afghanistan. She has been in constant contact with the Afghan Church, whose members are mostly Muslim converts… some had even embraced Islamic extremist ideology. But now their standing up for Jesus could cost them dearly. Many tried and did escape before U.S. Forces left, but many did not. And now their act of fealty to their faith could prove tragic. Because now those government cards are in the hands of the Taliban, who've been systematically going door to door hunting down American allies… and Christians. Find out how these Christians may hold the key to a better Afghanistan. They are the seed of the Gospel, which Jesus said even the gates of hell could not destroy.

The Big Cat Coalition Formed in DC Rose Church a pro bono attorney for the Ian Somerhalder Foundation contacted Big Cat Rescue asking what Ian could do to help Tony the tiger be saved from the truck stop in Grosse Tete, LA.  Ian Somerhalder is the star of the Vampire Diaries and from Louisiana and had a Twitter following of 2.3 million fans at that time.   We had been working to save Tony since 2009 and so had the Animal Legal Defense Fund and there wasn't anything more that could be done at the time as these things drag out through years and years of appeals, so Howard Baskin and I suggested that if Ian really wanted to make a difference for big cats that he help us stop cub handling.   Rose couldn't believe that such abuse actually existed in this country and contacted her law professor, Diane Sullivan, to see what could be done. They thought that bringing together the big non profits who work on big cat issues together for a round table would be a good idea and asked if I knew anyone.  I gave her the contacts we had in the International Tiger Coalition and she managed to get representatives from a number of them to come to a meeting on July 25, 2011.   Attendees were:   ALDF  Stephan Otto from the Animal Legal Defense Fund   BCR  Howard Baskin and Carole Baskin from Big Cat Rescue   BF USA  Adam Roberts and Tracy Coppola from Born Free   GFAS  Patty Finch from the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries   HSUS  Debbie Leahy from the Humane Society of the United States   IFAW  Jeff Flocken, Nathan Herschler & Gina Miller from the International Fund for Animal Welfare   ISF  Rose Church from the Ian Somerhalder Foundation   MSL  Dean Diane Sullivan, from Massachusetts School of Law, filmed the Plight of Tigers further down   WCAR  World Council for Animal Rights   WCCLAS  Wild Cat Conservation Legal Aid Society   WWF  Leigh Henry from the World Wildlife Fund   Combined we represent more than 18 million supporters.   Each of us had come there to decide how we could end the big cat crisis.  Each person around the table said what they thought the biggest contributing factor to big cat abuse and extinction was.  No one mentioned cubs and I was the last or next to the last to speak. I said that if we end the cub handling, all the other abuses fall away; circuses, private ownership, illegal trade and the smokescreen for illegal trade which was causing extinction in the wild.  We agreed on a three prong approach that day:   1. Rescind the generic tiger loophole with USFWS. 2. Force USDA to enforce the Animal Welfare Act  which should already be interpreted to not allow cub handling. 3. A federal ban on cub handling and private ownership.   https://bigcatrescue.org/big-cat-coalition/   I've been writing my story since I was able to write, but when the media goes to share it, they only choose the parts that fit their idea of what will generate views.  If I'm going to share my story, it should be the whole story.  The titles are the dates things happened. If you have any interest in who I really am please start at the beginning of this playlist: http://savethecats.org/   I know there will be people who take things out of context and try to use them to validate their own misconception, but you have access to the whole story.  My hope is that others will recognize themselves in my words and have the strength to do what is right for themselves and our shared planet.     You can help feed the cats at no cost to you using Amazon Smile! Visit BigCatRescue.org/Amazon-smile   You can see photos, videos and more, updated daily at BigCatRescue.org   Check out our main channel at YouTube.com/BigCatRescue   Music (if any) from Epidemic Sound (http://www.epidemicsound.com) This video is for entertainment purposes only and is my opinion.

The image most of us have of whalers includes harpoons and intentional trauma. Yet eating commercially caught seafood leads to whales' entanglement and slow death in rope and nets, and the global shipping routes that bring us readily available goods often lead to death by collision. We--all of us--are whalers, marine scientist and veterinarian Michael J. Moore contends. But we do not have to be. Drawing on over forty years of fieldwork with humpback, pilot, fin, and in particular, North Atlantic right whales--a species whose population has declined more than twenty percent since 2017--Moore takes us with him as he performs whale necropsies on animals stranded on beaches, in his independent research alongside whalers using explosive harpoons, and as he tracks injured whales to deliver sedatives. The whales' plight is a complex, confounding, and disturbing one. We learn of existing but poorly enforced conservation laws and of perennial (and often failed) efforts to balance the push for fisheries profit versus the protection of endangered species caught by accident. But despite these challenges, Moore's We Are All Whalers: The Plight of Whales and Our Responsibility (U Chicago Press, 2021) is an optimistic one. He shows us how technologies for rope-less fishing and the acoustic tracking of whale migrations make a dramatic difference. And he looks ahead with hope as our growing understanding of these extraordinary creatures fuels an ever-stronger drive for change. Galina Limorenko is a doctoral candidate in Neuroscience with a focus on biochemistry and molecular biology of neurodegenerative diseases at EPFL in Switzerland.
