“Give bread to those who have hunger Cheap Darren Helm Jersey , and to those who have bread, give a hunger for justice”.1
Kenyans have learnt to expect certain types of prime time news in certain seasons of the year. The dry seasons come with bulletins of hunger, malnutrition and desperate faces mostly from the nomadic communities. The question is: what has and has not been done?
Food: A Constitutional Right.
Dr. Dixon Ombaka Cheap Martin Frk Jersey , a lecturer at Kenyatta University, observes that the constitution has guaranteed everyone a right to food and yet it is not everyone who has access to it. Corruption, he observes Cheap Luke Glendening Jersey , is a big contributor to this hunger menace.
Pitting two print media stories against each other, Dr. Ombaka depicts the picture of a desperate nation struggling with the harsh reality of food poverty in a country heavily dependent on agriculture. The fact that one third of the Kenyan population is starving paints a clear picture of lack of equity in the country which is a major obstacle to national development.
Starvation, he notes Cheap Henrik Zetterberg Jersey , is addressed in the constitution of Kenya (2010) as a constitutional right and a human right and upheld as a moral duty of social justice. Citing article 43 section 1 (c), he argues that right to food is both an economic and social right that gives every Kenyan the right of freedom from hunger and the right to have adequate food of acceptable quality.
Does this Guarantee Access to Food?
Not in Kenya. Eatists is what he calls a group of Kenyans who seem to believe that public resources are theirs to expropriate. They plunder and loot at will leaving millions of Kenyans in the misery of unmet basic needs. The ability to ensure that all Kenyans have food has thus been compromised by the ability of these eatists to amass public wealth for their selfish consumption.
What Does this Amount to?
According to Dr. Ombaka, consciousness is almost completely pre-empted by hunger. Food insecurity leads to dysfunctional development -lack of it- since starving persons are not in a position to participate in self-development and community building activities. An effort to improve their quality of life is hampered creating a negative effect on overall development of their community.
On Matters Justice
In a distributive principle Cheap Anthony Mantha Jersey , social justice advocates for a fair distribution of burdens and benefits among community members. The food poverty in Kenya, as Dr. Ombaka notes, seems to call out a clear injustice and lack of mutual respect of liberties created by the eatists by denying the hungry a meaningful life. On the principle of equal satisfaction for all persons Cheap Jimmy Howard Jersey , the burden of food poverty eliminates the subsistenceparticipation of individuals in community life.
This poses several important questions:
1. What is the social and economic distance between policy making and implementation towards the development of social justice and its relations to human rights?
2. What is the level and extent of food poverty in Kenya and to what extend does it hinder development?
Development and social justice are mutually inclusive and in this paper, Dr. Ombaka is calling for a political imperative to put an end to hunger: it is a cry for justice not aid.

Submitted 2018-06-19 10:56:07 Four seasons in one day is what they say, and it鈥檚 so true. Melbournians are accustomed to adding and shedding layers of clothing by the hour as the unpredictable Victorian temps fluctuate. Melbourne鈥檚 mother nature doesn鈥檛 just impact our outfits and general sanity Cheap Tomas Tatar Jersey , she is also very dangerous for our vehicles - particularly our windscreens. Why is Melbourne such an Aussie hotspot for cracked and damaged windscreens?

Rapid changing temperatures

Often somewhere in the transition from Spring to Summer, Melbourne is known to endure temps in the teens following temps in the 30鈥檚 and vice versa. We鈥檙e victims of our temperate positioning being a tug of war between the arctic zone and the tropics. Wind speed and direction can make an incredible temperature difference from one hour to the next. Windscreen glass expands when warm and contracts when chilly. Over time these swift and extreme changes can encourage cracks to form. There鈥檚 not a whole lot you can do about it; but try to park your car in a controlled environment whenever these temperature fluctuations are occuring.

Extreme heat waves and arctic cold fronts

Scorching summer temperatures can put your windscreen under a lot of pressure. If you already have a small crack or chip in your windscreen, it鈥檚 common for direct sunlight and extreme heat to make the damage significantly worse. If you shock your sizzling windscreen by blasting your air conditioner on the inside of the vehicle Cheap Gustav Nyquist Jersey , this rapid temperature change can also lead to damage. Best to park in the shade during summer and cool the interior of your vehicle gradually.

Arctic cold snaps strike Melbourne regularly. Teeth-chattering temps of 4 and frosty nights can certainly challenge your windscreen health. Cracks commonly occur if you try to defrost your windscreen with very hot water, or even if you crank up your heater inside the vehicle. As chilly as it may be, try to protect your windscreen by gradually increasing the temperature of your defrosters.
How dramatically we can change our results is largely a function of imagination. In 1960 Cheap Justin Abdelkader Jersey , it was a technological impossibility for man to travel into outer space. Within ten years, however, the first man stepped out onto the surface of the moon. Th.
