EKSKLUZIVNO: Akademik Slavo Kukić: Za pomak naprijed potreban je pritisak izvana


slavo kukicPredizborna kampanja u BiH odavno je započela, zvanična kampanja počinje uskoro, a bh. javnost već ima dovoljno materijala da donese prve sudove o onima koji traže njihovu podršku. Tim povodom smo razgovarali s jednim od najcjenjenijih akademskih radnika i političkih analitičara u Bosni i Hercegovini akademikom Slavom Kukićem. U ekskluzivnom predizbornom intervju za From Bosnia To Canada akademik Kukić analizira prve medijske istupe kandidata za Predsjedništvo BiH, kandidate s najviše šansi da postanu članovi Predsjedništva (bošnjačkih i hrvatskih), biračku apatiju te kako se osjeća nakon nedavnog brutalnog napada u Mostaru.

Sa FACETV.ba: Da li je Obama kriv za Siriju i Irak?


barack obama 1Posljednja dešavanja u Siriji i Iraku ukazuju na brojne greške američke administracije kada su u pitanju ove dvije zemlje. Irak se nalazi na granici raspada dok se Sirija nalazi negdje između neba i zemlje i još uvijek ne zna gdje će završiti svoj put. U protekle tri godine Barack Obama je propustio uraditi mnogo toga kako bi pomogao onima koji su mogli i mogu spasiti Irak od raspada te dovesti Siriji bliže konačnom rješenju višegodišnjeg sukoba. Obamina administracija se nalazi pod velikim pritiskom javnosti i političkih zvaničnika, a među najžešćim kritičarima su se našli njegov nekadašnji protukandidat na izborima za Bijelu kuću senator John McCain i bivša državna tajnica Hillary Clinton.

As Surrey approaches one of the most important elections in last few decades media, commentators and general public are highly concentrated on search for a solution of numerous problems facing city’s transformation from suburban to urban. Top of the list is reserved for issues of crime, transportation and population growth which will need to be resolved sooner than later if this community wants to have quality and prosperous future. These are not new problems nor they are easily fixable problems but Surrey will need a different strategy.  Continue reading

Clinton to “hug it off” with Obama


Barack Obama Hillary ClintonFormer US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will step back from her recent criticism of her former boss US President Barack Obama regarding his actions in Syria and Iraq. Apparently Clinton will “hug it off”, as per press secretary statement, with Obama when they meet at the fundraiser later this week. Clinton who is seen as one of the most prominent potential candidates for Obama’s successor in 2016 once again shows that she can not stand behind her own words.  Continue reading

Battleground Surrey: New murder and more silence


wpid-Photo-20140807225635.jpgStart of the week was once again reserved for bad news from Surrey. Another murder happened in Newton, media and police forces jointly occupied one of the most troubled neighbourhoods in the city for hours trying to understand how and why community found itself in this troubling situation. This is nothing new and it is just another piece of a puzzle which was started almost three years ago, story which up to this day doesn’t have resolution nor we have any indication when it will end. Over the next few month, up to elections in November, local politicians accompanied with public and media will discuss all important elements of crime issue. What their goal must be is to find not a simplistic or some big word idea but a real solution which will stop problem to spread even more and create more problems to the community.  Continue reading

“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You musn’t lose it.” ~ Robin Williams.

Just having spent a lovely afternoon out with my children, I came home, made snacks for them both, and filled a tall glass of ice with water and lime. And then I saw something on twitter that made my heart sink.

Just so completely shocked to just hear of Robin Williams death that I felt a strong urge to put pen to paper but that takes too long so that’s why I blog…

One of my first thoughts was  “But who’s going to make us laugh and cry like he did?”

No mockery please. To make people laugh, cry, shout in anger… to make people simply feel something at all…to be able to evoke emotions that connect us on a basic human element is no small feat.

And sadly, it seems far too often those among us most blessed with this unique talent are often the ones most haunted by demons that drive…
