opened that on its surface seems like a period piece from a time long ago about a genocide that we as a species pledged that we would "never again" tolerate "Never Again" is after all written right there on a wall of the remnants of the Dachau concentration camp in many languages The Zookeepers Wife starring Jessica Chastain bears an eerie resemblance to world events today The characters are different The era locations and ethnicities are different But the primeval terror remains And once again the world is too slow to act Jessica portrays Antonina Żabińska the real-life Warsaw Zookeeper who along with her husband Dr Jan Żabiński hid Jewish men women and children from the brutality of the Nazis She is a reminder that in that even in the face of the most vile inhuman violence there are those committed to acts of common decency whether they manage a zoo or a Rwandan hotel Antoninas actions like mine in the 1990s were not heroic but simply the right thing to do One of the things I appreciated most about The Zookeepers Wife is that it underscores the complications of living under a brutal regime Strikingly like my experience in Rwanda the film reveals how Nazism slowly but steadily came to be In 1930s Germany it began with slurs toward the Jewish people against the backdrop of a nation still reeling from World War I A complacent nation fell in line and donned the Swastikas some out of hate but most out of fear In Rwanda it began with slurs toward the Tutsis and calls for them to go back to Ethiopia It spread from there into a genocide that claimed the lives of nearly a million people Many in the West still to this day do not realize the full implications of this mass slaughter It is often written off as two primitive peoples engaging in barbarism which is simplistic and frankly wrong As I wrote in my book An Ordinary Man "Stripping the humanity from an entire group of people takes time It is an attitude that requires cultivation a series of small steps daily tending" That "daily tending" is often more frightening than the murders themselves We see it play out in everyday lives It happened to me It happened to Antonina Instincts for self-preservation abject fear and simple exhaustion are at war with doing what you know is right Bizarrely you bear witness to the mundane moments of life where the softness inside men drives them to enjoy a meal drink a beer listen to music hug their children and make love to their wives before coldly taking a machete or a rifle to their neighbor In The Zookeepers Wife you see how Antonina learns quickly to operate (and even compromise her moral code) within these soft moments in an attempt to protect the life of someone she hardly knows We are born with a powerful herd instinct that can force otherwise rational people to do irrational things It is hard to care for someone or something outside of our small circle And even those who purport to care are often left feeling helpless Its why films like The Zookeepers Wife or Hotel Rwanda can powerfully influence seeing Antoninas story in the darkness of a movie theater for two hours without distraction stirs the heart in a profound way We hope our internal barometer moves to the side of compassion We believe we are bound by the same sense of purpose as the films hero or heroine who in reality is as ordinary as we are We secretly ask ourselves: would I do what Jessica Chastains character did or would I fall victim to fear Would I stay in line or break from the pack Unfortunately these are not just hypothetical or rhetorical questions They are real We are living with the worlds largest refugee crisis since World War II with five million registered refugees fleeing the tyranny of the Syrian government And in Rwanda Somalia South Sudan Nigeria and parts of Yemen drought and famine have been escalated by government corruption Twenty million lives are endangered It adds up to the largest humanitarian crisis in history On the surface these tragic world events can all be viewed as separate unrelated and far away from the comforts of Western reality We see news reports have fleeting moments of sadness maybe even write a social post on behalf of an aid organization but ultimately go on with our day My fear is that common decency is losing a war to indifference apathy and selfishness There seem to be far fewer Antonina and Jan Żabińskis in the world I hope Im wrong but the fate of the humankind looks bleak from where Im sitting and I was the hotel manager in the center of hell on earth Time and again weve seen the devastating impact of when refugees are turned away In 1939 approximately 900 refugees boarded a German ocean liner the MS St Louis in the hopes of being welcomed by Cuba the US or Canada They were turned away and almost a third of them died in concentration camps If Belgium had not opened its arms to me and my family in 1996 I would have been a dead man There were certainly enough threats on my life So it is imperative that all governments do whatever possible to embrace the Syrian refugees now To quote the last line of Hotel Rwanda "theres always enough room" Indifference is not owned by one man one leader or one country If only it were that easy It is our collective problem The thread of malevolent governance runs from 1940s Germany to 1990s Rwanda (and continues today) to present-day Syria and in many other places throughout the world We the fortunate ones must find within us the courage to resist the herd and tap into the quiet strength of kindness to do whatever we can to push our leaders to act before the "daily tending" makes its way across the oceans Apathy and conformity are a greater more frightening threat than that of any terrorist organization that I can promise you As I wrote in 2006 in an attempt to contextualize the Rwandan genocide: "Unless the world community can stop finding ways to dither in the face of monstrous threats to humanity those words Never Again will persist in being one of the most abused phrases in the English language and one of the greatest lies of our time" Rusesabagina is a Rwandan humanitarian and a recipient of the

he would go anywhere the controller thought was the quickest route across weather but the controller replied that he did not have a better routeThe controller told Crenshaw to stay at 12000 feet and then advised that turning to the east or southeast would put them away from the weather but when the pilot tried to do that the plane fell to 5800 feet At that point the controller asked Crenshaw to

senseless killings of the people of Benue State by the Fulani herdsmen The group said the killings were nothing else but genocide It also blamed President Muhammadu Buhari accusing him of indifference The group expressed its concern in a statement issued in Abuja and jointly signed by its patron Chief Godwin Obla (SAN) and President Dr J Y Musa (SAN) respectively It added that the killings commenced on an extermination scale on February 2013 first against the sedentary and predominantly agrarian Agatus (of Idoma extraction) and spreading thereafter like a wildfire to Mbasenger community in Guma Local Government Area in April 2013 with the killing of 10 defenceless farmers in one day at the first instance on that scale The statement reads in part: “The year 2013 was like a set time for the Fulani militias to unleash their murderous mayhem of expansionist agenda on the people of Benue Thus like a spread of diffusive substance subsequently it has been from one event of gory spree of rampaging killings to another across the length and breadth of Benue State on a scale hardly obtainable in modern warring situation between two countries “A Timeline of the series of massacre by the Fulani militias masquerading as herdsmen in Benue State would help to bring this narrative in a proper perspective “January 24 2017 – 15 persons were killed by rampaging Fulani herdsmen who attacked farmers in Ipiga village in Ohimini LGA of Benue State “March 2 2017 – No fewer than 10 persons were killed in a renewed hostility between herdsmen and farmers in Mbahimin community Gwer East

Another video shared on social media in Maharashtra was of some incident in Gujarat the ASP added When Dhule Superintendent of Police M Ramkumar was asked if the lynching incident in his district was

have run through preparations for the Games newly-appointed creative director Mansai Nomura said on Tuesday Mansai Nomura poses with Executive Creative Director for the Olympic Games Takashi Yamazaki (L) and Executive Creative Director for the Paralympic Games Hiroshi Sasaki (R) Reuters Over the last two decades the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics and Paralympics have become an increasingly important medium for the host nation to show off its history and culture as well as communicate key messages It appears Tokyo 2020 will be no different and Nomura an actor who features in a traditional form of Japanese comedic theatre know as Kyogen spoke of recovery with a focus on the future and embracing life “We are alive” the 52-year-old told a news conference adding “(we have) experienced war and being victims to natural disasters this devastation and tragedy With this in mind we need to turn our eyes to life The earth is a repetition of death and life and in this cycle we are alive” A key theme in the run-up to the Games has been the recovery from the devastating earthquake that struck Japan in 2011 Nomura who rejoices in the official title of chief executive creative director has been tasked with orchestrating the ceremonies for the Olympics and Paralympics around four themes of peace co-existence reconstruction and future Although he would not give too much away about the content of the ceremonies he suggested re-birth would be a key theme “So maybe things that are born or nurtured and developed something like that I shouldn’t say more otherwise I will be giving out too much” he said with an enigmatic smile Nomura is famous in Japan for capturing the essence of the ancient art of Kyogen theatre while bringing the form to a new generation through modern interpretations However the organisers of the Tokyo 2020 opening and closing ceremonies are also adamant that the Paralympics will be on an equal footing with the Olympics as they plan consistent themes and storylines across all four ceremonies Hiroshi Sasaki the man behind Tokyo 2020’s startling handover performance during the closing ceremony at the Rio Games in 2016 has been tasked with designing the Paralympic ceremonies in two years’ time The Paralympics are due to start on 25 August 2020 over two weeks after the end of the Olympics on 9 August but Sasaki is determined to orchestrate a ceremony that keeps the Paralympics firmly in the public consciousness “There is something I would like to avoid which is after the Olympics people will feel things have concluded things have finished” Sasaki told reporters on Tuesday “There will be much media attention after the Olympic Games — how were the Games how many medals each country has won — but then I will once again be asking for your full support in also giving energy to the Paralympic Games” said Sasaki He also spoke passionately about meeting para athletes who have helped shape his understanding of their sport and wants to design ceremonies that will highlight how ‘cool’ and ‘stylish’ they are “The recognition of Para sports which is different to that of the past is of para sports being cool” said Sasaki adding "the key words being something cool something stylish This is something I would like to see If you look at the Paralympic Games or para athletes they are all taking on challenges over-coming many difficulties and obstacles” “I think we are at a stage of transformation; that the Paralympic Games will undergo significant transformations and in two years time maybe para sports will have transformed significantly That is a real possibility In that sense the Tokyo Games will be a turning point” said Sasaki With inputs from Reuters OPECs decision at its semi-annual meeting in Vienna on Friday not to cut production but to legitimize its overproduction shows that the group is determined at any cost to recover the market share it lost to producers outside the cartel particularly those drilling for oil in the United States Which means that the world can probably expect oil prices to remain low for some time Traditionally OPEC members have produced about 40 percent of the worlds crude oil but 18 months ago prodigious US production began to eat into its market share It also created an oil glut that caused prices to decline precipitously from a high of more than $110 per barrel beginning in June 2014 The group had the option of reducing its production ceiling which had been at 30 million barrels per day for several years to help stabilize prices Such a move would have been led by Saudi Arabia OPECs leading producer which for years had been the "swing" producer adjusting production up or down to keep prices at levels with which the group was comfortable Instead Saudi Oil Minister Ali al-Naimi decided on a strategy to maintain OPECs production level a move that helped accelerate the drop in oil prices which have now plunged to just over $40 per barrel There were calls from several members of the group including Algeria Ecuador and Venezuela for OPEC to reduce output but at Fridays meeting the cartel agreed to maintain its production ceiling Al-Naimi said his goal in refusing to cut production was to drive the US drillers out of business They had been relying increasingly on expensive hydraulic fracturing or fracking which isnt profitable unless the average global price of oil is about $60 per barrel So far that strategy has worked as rig counts in the United States have fallen substantially But al-Naimis strategy has also had unwanted side-effects on OPEC members themselves The Saudi minister evidently believed that oil-producing countries particularly rich Gulf States could weather a period of lower revenues while frackers licked their wounds After all at the time Saudi Arabia had monetary reserves of about three-quarters of a trillion dollars But less affluent OPEC countries such as Venezuela were hit with serious losses And eventually even Saudi Arabia began to feel financial pressure and was forced to revise the projected budget revenues Even the stock markets of Gulf States were affected: On Oct 30 the US financial services company Standard & Poors cut its rating of the Saudi sovereign debt There had been some hope that Friday’s OPEC meeting would have a different outcome Saudi Arabia had proposed that the group reduce output if other producers OPEC members and non-members alike agreed to do the same "We cannot cut alone" one official from the region said Wednesday "Everyone has to contribute to that Iran Iraq and the rest outside OPEC" Two oil producers however Iran and Russia rejected the plan Thursday Irans oil minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said in Vienna that setting production levels "is our right and
