So, the first goal of any government should be “Do no harm.” Unfortunately, that is exactly what a recent bill proposed in the California Senate, Senate Bill 939, would ...

Ethiopia's declaration of a State of Emergency (SoE) may shock some in the west. Because, the Ethiopia many portrayed is 'the oasis of tranquility', 'the island of stability' and 'Arica's chief peace exporter'. That was what the government in Ethiopia tried hard to promote, too.
