This presentation seeks to compare and contrast the Central African Post and The Northern Rhodesia News by looking at their establishment, Editorial Policies and objectives. The second part of the presentation will discuss the behavior of Government Officials regarding newsprint, especially surrounding Welensky’s paper.
The Central African Post was published on the 12th of April 1948 by Dr. Scott. He was not a journalist but a retired physician. This was the first paper to be published in Lusaka. The first editorial stated that the paper was going to be a link between government and the people, it was to show the people the activities and inertias of the government, it was also to have a close view on political personalities.
The Post had very clearly defined stands on most on most of the key political issues it published. Out of the 188 editorials only 13 were in the “neutral” category this shows that the post was a very outspoken paper on the Federation and Welensky, the relationship between blacks and whites, and on its relationship with the Northern Rhodesian Government. It rarely left readers in doubt as to its stand on these issues. The fact that two-thirds of the editorials were in the against category indicates that the newspaper liked to serve as opposition, most of its opposition was against Welensky and the Federation.
In the begging the paper bitterly opposed the Federation and Welensky who was repeatedly called a liar. Dr. Scott used his paper to campaign for a Federal seat in the Federation at Salisbury. In 1954, the paper had no option but to turn around and support the Federation but reluctantly supported Welensky. The paper did not criticize the white settlers often, in its lifetime there wre only two articles editorials when it criticized the settlers one of them was a strike by white rail-workers, t condemned white settlers for not being…...

Democratic Peace Theory

...Democratic peace theory, in its wider interpretation, is the empirical observation that democracies rarely, if ever, fight one another and it is this empirical dyadic observation that that has been described as the “closest thing we have to empirical law” in international relations. [1] Although what is meant by democratic peace is contested, and indeed as its validity as this essay will explore, the theory has been previously under Woodrow Wilson and more currently the Presidencies of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, a significant conceptual factor in the formation of American foreign policy.[2] Our aim is a democratic peace, a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman. America acts in this course with friends and allies at our sides, yet we understand our special calling: this great republic will lead the cause of freedom. In light of this statement, ongoing U.S. policy and its likely persistence an examination and understanding of the democracy peace proposition is clearly with merit. This essay will look at the democratic peace proposition at a several levels of analysis: at the monadic level of interstate war on whether democracies generally are more peaceful and whether transitional democracies are more inclined to war; and at the intrastate level as to whether democracies experience more or less civil war. It will examine the validity of the proposition(s), reasons for is occurrence and postulate on what implication there may be...

Peace March

...My word, what a program Capital Talk of 3rd October proved to be, guests included Imran Khan (PTI), Marie Ann Wright (US former diplomat) and Lauren Booth (Britsh journalist). The show was hosted by Hamid Mir and its agenda was to talk on the issue of Drone attacks and Waziristan Peace March. Hamid Mir proved to be comparatively better anchor than other hosts such as Sana Bucha, Asma Shirazi and Javed Chaudhary, etc. He was moving on with questions instead of asking same questions repeatedly. Biggest surprise for me were responses given by the two foreign guests; they seemed to be more Pakistani than any so-called anchor, analyst, or politician from PPP, PMLN, MQM and ANP etc., kudos to them for speaking out truth with courage and audacity. Imran Khan, as usual, was solid in his responses and clear on his stances. He did not budge even for a moment when he declared that once the proper voice has been raised in front of United States and within United Nations against the use of Drones in Pakistan, he will order the PAF to shoot down any invading aircraft that violates the sovereignty of Pakistan’s by entering its air space. This is a normal procedure followed by all countries as per UN charter. Marie Ann and Lauren Booth supported Khan in this, though Ann hoped that it will not come to this. Furthermore, the foreign guests confirmed what most neutral, honest and patriotic analysts in Pakistan have been stating continuously, according to them the media abroad is being...

Lasting Peace

...To have peace in the world we must be willing to ingrain it into our soul. It's a contagious force which stems from us internally and for it to last in the world and in us we must have specific traits and ideals. Being optimistic and oozing positivity s the foundation for peace. It affects you and your aura - making it bright and powerful. But other people are also affected. It's been proven time and time again that humans are drawn to others that are happy, friendly and outgoing and forming friendships with those kinds of people spreads peace and happiness. Inner peace is just one form, there are also many other ways to show and express it. War is the complete opposite of peace. It causes death, destruction, crisis and misery all over the world. And not only is peace contagious, but so is hatred - which is it's destroyer. Mankind has had a long history with battle and the struggles that go along with it which at it's very core is centered around the greed, gluttony and selfishness humans tend to feel. All of this comes together into a complex ball and ruins peace. Being selfless, compassionate, sympathetic and generous helps to feed peace and sweep the world with it which in turn fights off unwanted and negative hatred. Spreading peace around only makes us stronger. It fuels us and gives us hope. Once it's achieved all over the planet, the security and comfort it provides will be visible. Doing good deeds and having a positive outlook towards life is noticed by the media.......

...NOTES Abstract (summary) TranslateAbstract Contends that Syria's President Bashar al-Assad, who came to power when his father died in 2000, has failed to fulfill the hope that he would begin to transform Syria into a more politically, economically, & culturally open society. Bashar is said to lack the charisma, legitimacy, or experience needed to bring about genuine change. An overview of Syria's social, political, & economic situation at the time of President Hafiz al-Assad's death is followed by a look at Bashar's early moves toward openness & his inability to combat the "Old Guard" that controls Syria's socioeconomic life & is determined to maintain the status quo. The impact on Bashar's regime of Syria's economic crisis, Islamist radicals, globalization, modern technology, & the US occupation of Iraq is examined. Special attention is given to Syria's deteriorating relations with the US, Bashar's attempt to renew peace negotiations with Israel, & Syria's troubles in Lebanon. Prospects for Syria's future are discussed in light of Bashar's failure to politically & economically integrate Syria into the new world. J. Lindroth The civil war in Syria is getting more complicated with each passing day. In Syria, there is not only the conflict between the regime and opposition, but also wars within wars. Fractions appear within the opposition on ideological and ethnic basis. The rivalry between different opposition groups has recently turned into a conflict. Islamists, but......

World Peace

...“Russian opposition politician Boris Nemstov brutally murdered near Kremlin”, “French cartoonist Charlie Hebdo and 12 others murdered in Paris office”, “ISIS burns Jordanian pilot alive”. These were the screaming headlines in leading newspapers around the world recently. Such acts of violence seem a regular occurrence nowadays. Will there ever be peace on earth? Why is the world we live in such a violent place? In 15 years’ time, I will no longer be young. One change I would like to see taking place is for the world to be more peaceful. Other changes I would be eager to see is a greener environment with more sustainable practices as well as the eradication of poverty. Is World peace an illusion? Or can it be achieved one fine day? There seems to be conflict everywhere. Everybody is fighting over something and everything. Iraq invaded Kuwait for their oil in 1990. Russia annexed Crimea in 2014. All these large-scale conflicts have a high death toll and the impact is disastrous. Hopefully, in 15 years’ time, countries can settle the disputes between them peacefully, without any need for aggression. Can we ever stop this attitude of getting “an eye for an eye”? If this practice goes on, we run the risk of the making the whole world blind, because fighting will only bring harm upon many around us. I feel that if people or countries are so competitive and calculative, going to war over just a small conflict, it will make our world miserable. In wars where soldiers...

...Peace and justice has a lot of different meaning to different people. Some people define peace as a way to avoid negation or in common synonym harmony and tranquility while justice is the conformity to truth and reality in expressing opinions and in conduct. Two simple words but they carry out so much within them. These two words may seem different but they complement each other when said in one. Like people in different faith traditions, these people have different believes and different traditions but they’re perspective of peace and justice complement each other. They may not be the same but they are equally connected to each other. Like Martin Luther King, Martin a Baptist now referred to as human right icon of today. In his history of fighting for peace and justice he came across a lot of hardships, problems and has endured more than anything you could imagine. He always believed in the teaching of Mahatma Gandhi that there should be non-violence. And that everyone should live simple and should not try to look at the material things but only look to God. He would always implement peace and justice but no one listen they would always think of it as non sense, but in one of King’s speeches called “I Have a dream” everyone’s eyes opened to consciousness about civil rights. Dr. King’s vision of justice included men, women, sanitation workers, and union members. He knew that if their concerns were met they would together create a broad-based movement that would endure. He...

...What is the distinctive response of Christianity and Islam regarding peace? Christianity and Islam both have had a distinct response to peace. Peace is the central teaching among both religions and the teaching of inner peace and world peace can be conveyed through sacred texts, principal teachings and organisations. In Christianity, teachings of peace derives from Christ in the New Testament. Peace is at the heart of Jesus’ life and ministry and accordingly it is a foundational element of the the Christian communities that seek to follow him. The New Testament extols peace as a virtue and identifies it as a key element of the reign of God. Jesus himself is known as the “prince of peace” and is regarded as the source of peace, meaning that by adherents living in a close relationship with him, they are allowing themselves to experience the peace in which he brings. The New Testament proclaims “Guide our feet into the way of peace” (Luke 1:79), which emphasises that following in the footsteps of Jesus, is the way to achieving inner peace. Peace is understood as more than merely an absence of violence and conflict. It refers more fully to an overall sense of wellbeing. Ultimately peace is found in union with God. Christians are taught to live at peace with others, both within their own communities and in the wider human family.Throughout the first three centuries of the common era Christians adopted a pacifist position and refused to engage in military service or warfare...

... pain, agony or despair when a prayer was pulled out of me with surprising strength. I was taught to read the word, pray the word so that it became a part of my daily prayer time. I began to learn how to apply scripture with pray as we prayed for the sick. God was setting me up for something good, in that once the infirmary of sickness hit my body, I had the secret. It was the power of prayer that kept me time the time of despair. I stood on Isaiah 53:5, but he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. During this time of sickness prayer was an avenue of peace; it was my way out of life’s challenges. The solace of prayer helped me, when family and friends didn’t understand my faith. Repeatedly, I remember during this time of great trial I experienced God's presence during prayer. A sunset, a song, or a baby's smile helps me to remember that God speaks to me in many ways if I am open and willing to see and to listen. When my heart is touched by the presence of God during prayer, I often respond with words of gratitude or praise or simply an inner smile of joy. I learned to pray in and out of season, at any time and for any reason. You would find me on my knees crying out to God. My relationship with Him was built on prayer. As I read Celebration of Discipline, I agree that real prayer is something we learn to do. For there were times I had to ask the Lord teach......

World Peace

...World Peace Day The International Day of Peace also known as Peace Day is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. On Peace Day, people around the world take part in various activities and organize events centered on the theme “peace”. Events vary from private gatherings to public concerts and forums involving large audiences. Peace, as we all know, is very a important matter in our daily lives and it is essential to our overall well-being. However, this is something that has, regrettably been avoided for many years. It has been hindered by war, conflicts and disagreements throughout human history, which has left our world in a disgraceful emotional and physical state. This should not be the case. Peace has many benefits if we give it a chance, and it is a far more favorable option than conflicts. Imagine all the positive developments we could make if we were to have lasting peace throughout the ages! It might be hard, but we must all learn to do it. It is our responsibility as educators to promote peace within our school. There are many ways to promote peace in the classroom that aren’t too abstract. Although it is important to touch on this subject, peace education does not have to just include the prevention of war. It can start in the classroom, by simple acts of kindness, or care of the environment and others around us. The word “peace” means something different to everyone,......

Peace Building in Bururndi

...INTRODUCTION Burundi, situated in the Great Lakes Region, has experienced cycles of war since independence was attained on 1 July 1962. Of these, two major conflicts have caused the greatest political and social upheaval. In April 1972, Hutu rebels from the south, using Tanzania as a springboard, invaded the country through the province of Bururi, where they systematically slaughtered Tutsis. The repressive reaction of the Burundian Army (FAB) took the form of equally brutal reprisals against Hutu members of the population, including members of the elite. The war resulted in the first manifestation of internally displaced people (IDP) within Burundi and refugees outside the country’s borders, after thousands of Burundians had fled to neighbouring countries. In October 1993, the first democratically elected Hutu president, Ndadaye Melchior, was murdered. When Ndadaye’s successor, President Cyprien Ntaryamira, and Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana were killed in a plane crash in April 1994, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) described the reaction that followed as an act of genocide against Tutsis and moderate Hutus. It is estimated that more than 300 000 people were killed during the massacre. EFFORTS TO RESTORE PEACE An agreement reached in September 1994, the Convention of Government (CG), made provision for the establishment of a coalition government led by a president from FRODEBU and a prime minister from UPRONA, among other...
