In the next few days, a discussion about one of the main causes of the greatest injustices of our time, corporate abuse [1], is taking place. And despite having been warmly invited to take part, EU countries have chosen to ignore it.
For the first time in history we could have a way to internationally clamp down on corporate abuses. A new global treaty would introduce legally binding rules for corporations. But despite having support from most countries in the United Nations, every EU country is boycotting this treaty [2]. Granted, this is but a first step. But it is one that thousands of people have longed for for decades, and which can help us start change.
Let’s send a strong message to our leaders. The European Parliament already issued a resolution urging EU countries to engage in this global discussion [3], and right now a global coalition of movements, backed by thousands of people in Europe, are working together to up the pressure. In a big action next Thursday, we will let our representatives know what we think before they meet to discuss this treaty.

Next Thursday, the European Parliament’s Industry Committee will vote whether to make the corporate polluters pay, or let them off the hook. But there is a danger that backroom deals with lobbyists will destroy our chance to hold the dirty industry to account. We must act now and make our parliamentarians hear the voices of Europeans over the whispers of the lobbyists – if we don’t, we will be letting the polluters get away with it, and allowing lobbyists to dictate our policies.
The law is now up for review in the European Parliament, but the proposal is dangerously weak. It is up to our MEPs to stand up to the industry and speak for the European people and vote for a strong and ambitious law. But they need to hear our demands first – so let’s make them!

1. He who learns, he will succeed. (Bulgarian proverb)
2. Forward! Science is a sun / which lightens our souls!** – not only on May 24, the National Day of Cyrillic alphabet and Culture, but continuously throughout life (CME – Continuing Medical Education; LEE – Live Educational Events; LLP – Laboratory, Library, Pub; also Lifelong Learning Program).
3. Knowledge and way of thinking, not information and reproduction, are the main goal of education (see above the picture entitled Stream of Associations).

This means 10,000 children without food, without shelter, and without love. 10,000 children who are scared, vulnerable, and alone. 10,000 children who should be at school, out playing, and having fun. Instead, they are missing, at risk from violence, and exploitation.
From Ireland to Italy, and from Brussels to Berlin, right across Europe our political leaders are failing to act. They are running scared of populist politicians who are using Europe’s refugee crisis for political gain. Europe’s leaders will continue to ignore these vulnerable children unless we demand they take action.
Can you help protect missing children? Sign now.

The statewide median price in July was $199,000 up 4.7 % from July 2015 when the median price was $190,000. The median is a typical market price where half the homes sold for more and half sold for less.
“The drop-off in home sales in July underscores the fact that a continued lack of inventory is plaguing those who are in the market for a new home,”said Mike Drews, GRI, president of Illinois REALTORS® and broker-associate with Charles B. Doss & Co. in Aurora. “These homebuyers face limited choices and higher prices as a result.”

Goldman Sachs, a banking corporation with a central role in causing the 2008 financial crisis [1], just found an easy way to make sure the Union operates in its interests. They’re hiring the ex-president of the European Commission, Mr Barroso [2].
Barroso gained great political influence, contacts and insider know-how through his public post, all of which he could now use to benefit one of the most controversial financial corporations, which is already spending over a million euros in influencing the EU [3].
This is a clear signal that our European institutions allow banks and big businesses to set the agenda. We need strong rules to prevent this and sanctions if the rules are broken. Already the French President, dozens of members of the European Parliament and disgruntled EU staff have openly voiced their criticism [4], but the Commission remains silent. A big community of Europeans shouting with one voice will surely help to kick it into action.

The release could cloud the upcoming Democratic party convention, which kicks off next week in Philadelphia.
It is unclear how Wikileaks obtained the records, but the release comes weeks after a hacker (or hackers) going by the name Guccifer 2.0 began releasing records obtained through the DNC’s computer systems. The hacker claims to be Romanian, but many suspect that the records were taken by a team of Russian hackers.
Guccifer 2.0 has said that they obtained DNC emails. Other documents released by the hacker(s) include internal planning memos and databases of Democratic donors.

When President Obama entered office, he dreamed that his hope-and-change messaging and his references to his familial Islamic roots would win over the Muslim world. The soon-to-be Nobel Peace Prize laureate would make the United States liked in the Middle East. Then terrorism would decrease.
But, as with his approach to racial relations, Mr. Obama’s remedies proved worse than the …
