Bad stuff in the Caribbean

Why is it so difficult to get news from Puerto Rico, Dominica, the Virgin Islands and other Caribbean nations and territories. Is it because the communication network isn’t so good, or is it because the media doesn’t care as much about those spots as the media cares about the mainland US, or both? Or something else?

FRANCE. Bobigny. February 16, 2017. A riot policeman stands guard as people gather during a demonstration to demand justice for Theo, a 22-year-old youth worker who required surgery after his arrest last week in the gritty suburb of Aulnay-sous-Bois. French President Francois Hollande called for “justice” over the alleged rape and beating of the black youth with a police baton, an incident that has sparked 10 nights of rioting and more than 200 arrests.

Onlar yaşadıkları sürece,bir kuytuda bitmiş som mavi bir çiçeğe kıyamadan,gözleriyle olsun bir kezcik hiç okşamışlar mıdır, iliklerine kadar sevinçten titreyip, iliklerine kadar mavi sevince kesmişler midir? Bir yağmur yeli sonrası, inen iri damlalar dünyayı toprak kokusuna boğmuşken , içleri pır pırr ederek, derin derin bu dünyanın güzel kokusunu ciğerlerinin köküne kadar içlerine çekmiş, şu dünyaya , doğacak güne , toprağı yaran filize,açtı açacak tomurcuğa , bir çocuğun kapıp koyverdiği gülüşüne hayran kalmış, yaşama bir kez minnet duymuş, çok şükür dünyaya gelişimize, demişler midir ? Şu deniz beyazken yaratılışın , ışığın, tanyerilerinin yeliyle birlikte esmenin güzelliğinde, tadında eriyip, bu tansığa karışıp uçmuş gitmişler midir?

Professor Ernest Williams gives a demonstration of his invention, the trepan machine, which caused a stir at the Medical Exhibition in London, c.1920. The machine was intended to provide a mechanical basis for trephination, or the drilling of holes in the head to relieve brain pressure or cure mental disorders.
