So, though the film provides a provocative analysis of American race relations up to the present day, as a testament to Baldwins continued relevance, an understanding of the moment when Baldwin began the project can add another layer to the movies meaning. Baldwins straight-no-chaser style of criticism, as captured in his essay collection The Fire Next Time, had made him a household name more than a decade earlier. As a 1963 TIM E cover story about the author and activist noted, in the U.S. today there is not another writer white or black who expresses with such poignancy and abrasiveness the dark realities of the racial ferment in North and South. At the heart of Baldwins argument was the question of who is responsible for the problem of racism, a point the film makes with Baldwins use of language.

1% y-o-y in December," it noted. The research house pointed that part of the increase in January's inflation was due to higher prices of food which gained pace by 4.1% y-o-y from 3.2% y-o-y in December. It explained that the gain came from higher prices in the food items like oil and fat (37.9%), vegetables (7.8%), fish and seafood (6.1%), as well as fruits (2.1%). AmBank Research noted that the prices of non-food items rose to 2.9% y-o-y in January from 1.0% y-o-y previously, which was driven by furnishings, household equipment and maintenance (1.5%), health (2.5%), restaurants and hotels (2.1%), education (2.0%) and transport (8.3%). In addition, the research house said the hike in transport prices, after contracting since March last year, was due to higher fuel prices. "Fuel prices for RON95, RON97, and diesel were up 20 sen, 15 sen, and 20 sen to RM2.10 per litre, RM2.40 per litre and RM2.05 per litre, respectively," it added.

He shows the rusty railway lines for coal transportation, virtually crumpled in snow after massive shelling. “Try to imagine a hellish explosive power that bends steel railway tracks...” he says. Soldier Anatoly Lutsenko said: “The shelling starts several times a day, and we all run for cover. And 90 percent of our time is spent like this we do our household duties and hide in trench shelters.” Lutsenko is now serving his combat duty west of the Butovka mine, on a place called the King’s Hunt, a pre-war luxury camp in the forest close to Avdiyivka industrial zone. Buildings of the former popular resort are now merely debris by massive shelling. During breaks in shelling, Ukrainian soldiers busy themselves with housework cooking, stockpiling wood, repairing and fueling their power generators. “When the night comes down, the real hell starts.

Good news: having a cat in the home does not increase your risk for mental health problems, according to a new study . Cats are host to a parasite called Toxoplasma Gondii. Prior research has suggested that people infected with this parasite are at an increased risk of developing schizophrenia. But after examining this small link, researchers from the University College London don't believe cat ownership directly leads to psychotic symptoms. Researchers followed families for almost 20 years and found that if the parasite does increase mental illness risk, it does not significantly increase exposure. Lead study author Dr. Francesca Solmi, of UCL, said in a statement that her team could not measure parasite exposure directly, but the overall study was done on a larger scale and controlled for factors such as household over-crowding and socioeconomic status.
