On Monday, Feb. 24, President Yoweri Museveni signed Uganda’s notorious anti-gay bill into law. Museveni has once again fond himself in the middle of an international controversy by enacting legislation that imposes harsh prison sentences, including a life sentence for so called “aggravated homosexuality.” The bill was originally introduced back in 2009 but was met with a firestorm of opposition from LGBT activists and human rights groups. Now, with the law on the books and the United States losing influence in Uganda, advocacy on behalf of LGBT rights in that country will be difficult.
President Museveni has strategically positioned Uganda on the world stage, making his country imperative to those seeking a foothold in a region accustomed to violent conflict. In 2011, several U.S…

A Greek doctor who posted a “Jews Not Welcome” sign outside his office was convicted and given a 16-month suspended jail sentence for inciting racial hatred.
Costas Kastaniotis, 57, a neurologist from Thessaloniki, also was convicted of illegally possessing weapons on Friday in a court in the northern Greece city. He was fined $3,500.
Kastaniotis has appealed the sentence.
The doctor has denied posting the sign, which was written in German. However, police discovered pamphlets in his office linking him to the neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party, which is known for its Nazi swastika-like flag and Holocaust-denying…

This world in which we live in has become such a race that even cartoons are starting to feel the pressure.
Medical conditions, emotional problems, adaptation and societal maladies have developed in this population. Or is it that the creators are using the cartoons as a means of expressing their issues?
Your guess is as good as any!

Lent (Latin: Quadragesima – English: Fortieth) is a solemn religious observance in the liturgical calendar of many Christian denominations that begins on Ash Wednesday and covers a period of approximately six weeks before Easter Day.
Its institutional purpose is heightened in the annual commemoration of Holy Week, marking the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, which recalls the tradition and events of the New Testament beginning on Friday of Sorrows, further climaxing on Jesus’ crucifixion on Good Friday, which ultimately culminates in the joyful celebration on Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
What follows is irreverent and meant to be taken with humor not seriously.
There is no intention to offend anyone.
Lent is traditionally described as lasting for forty days, in commemoration of the forty days which, according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, Jesus spent fasting in the desert before the beginning of his public ministry, where he endured temptation by the Devil.
However, different Christian denominations calculate the forty days of Lent differently. Historically, the season of Lent lasts from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday and includes the Paschal Triduum. This duration has been maintained by most Western Christian denominations, including the Anglican Church, Lutheran Church, Methodist Church, and Western Rite Orthodox Church.
However, after the liturgical abbreviations of the Second Vatican Council in the Roman Catholic Church, Lent is now taken to end on Holy Thursday rather than Easter Eve, and hence lasts 38 days excluding Sundays, or 44 days in total.
I was born into a very Catholic and actively practicing Catholic family. I went to Catholic school from kindergarten to high school. After graduation, I went to the Catholic University in Puerto Rico. I grew up with all the beliefs and traditions that the Catholic Church espouses.
For reasons that I don’t need to mention here, I am no longer a practicing member of ANY organized religion.
My beliefs are others. I respect all beliefs that anyone may hold dear and practice.
Life is much better with a bit of humor and when we are able to laugh at ourselves.

So What’s the Story with LENT?

Fallon was born in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, New York, and is the son of Gloria (née Feeley) and James W. Fallon, who is a Vietnam War veteran. His family settled in Saugerties, New York, while his father worked at IBM, in nearby Kingston, New York. His ancestry is five eighths Irish, two eighths German, and one eighth Norwegian; his paternal grandmother, Luise Schalla, was from Osterholz-Scharmbeck, Germany, while one of his maternal great-grandfathers, Hans Hovelsen, was an emigrant from Fredrikstad, Norway.
As a child, he and his older sister, Gloria, would reenact the “clean parts” of Saturday Night Live that his parents had taped for him. Fallon was such a fan that he made a weekly event of watching the show in his dormitory during college. In his teens, he impressed his parents with different impersonations, the first being of James Cagney (he would later move into Cagney’s building).
He was also musically inclined, and started playing guitar at age thirteen. He would go on to perform comedy and music in contests and shows.
Fallon succeeded fellow SNL alumnus Conan O’Brien as the host of NBC‘s Late Night after O’Brien left the show to prepare to take over The Tonight Show from Jay Leno in 2009. The deal for the long-expected succession was confirmed April 24, 2008, with an official announcement made on May 12, 2008, at NBC’s upfront presentation.
The show, titled Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, first aired on March 2, 2009, with guests Robert De Niro, Justin Timberlake, Nick Carter, and musical guest Van Morrison. Guests on the show’s first week included Tina Fey, Jon Bon Jovi, Cameron Diaz, Donald Trump, and Drew Barrymore.
To celebrate the second anniversary on March 2, 2011, Ben & Jerry’s launched a personalized “Late Night Snack” ice cream. This was immediately parodied on The Colbert Report the next day and the latter’s host Stephen Colbert engaged in a brief ice cream personality war with Fallon. Colbert used numerous “fecal matter” jokes to describe the flavor of the ice cream named after Fallon.
