united nations university

highlights from my first conference

  • I totally had a crush on South Africa and she won best delegate and I was so happy for her
  • we passed a 5 minute unmoderated caucus so that Saudi Arabia can eat something
  • I co-sponsored a hilariously horrible resolution to exile all gays to western countries, preferably the Netherlands “so they can get stoned in a different sense of the word”
  • South Africa, sitting left next to me, send a note to me through the whole room, which had to pass the chair, just to tell me she liked my tie
  • there was a fire alarm in the lunch break and we had to wait outside
  • the Philippines and Saudi Arabia had to rap the passed resolution because they were late
  • Saudi Arabia made a point of personal privilege to get help to tie his tie

God’s Plan for the Holy Black Stone – Younus AlGohar – Medium
How this sacred stone will help unite humanity.
By Younus AlGohar

God’s Plan for the Holy Black Stone: https://medium.com/@YounusAlGohar/gods-plan-for-the-holy-black-stone-da8023b7ba66#.gbxyoz75r

This Holy Black Stone will be greatly helpful to establish the fact that the entire humanity should convert to One United Nation (a universal brotherhood) that will love God and God will love them.

The only reason Sonic wasn’t put in jail after Adventure 2 was because it would have been a PR disaster for GUN. They knew the people would be furious if they thanked him for saving the world by imprisoning him. This is the case whether he cleared his name or not because he committed crimes during the game, including but not necessarily limited to: destruction of government property (the GUN robots), resisting arrest, and vandalism (you know you destroyed cars in City Escape, don’t lie).

Patricia Cronin
Shrine for Girls, 2015
installation inside the sixteenth-century Church of San Gallo, Venice
presented by the Brooklyn Rail Curatorial Projects at the 56th Venice Biennale

In one shrine, an altar exhibits hijabs symbolizing the 276 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria and another alter is in remembrance of three women who were recently gang raped, murdered and left to hang from trees in India. Cronin’s memorial explores that even though the United Nations passed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, women and girls around the world continue to be among the most vulnerable members of our global society. 

The women discovered during their visit that women in the United States have “missing rights” compared to the rest of the world. For instance, the U.S. is one of three countries in the world that does not guarantee women paid maternity leave, according to the U.N. International Labour Organization. The U.N. suggests that countries guarantee at least 14 weeks of paid parental leave. Some countries go further – Iceland requires five months paid leave for each parent, and an additional two months to be shared between them.
