Mauritius has to abolish the Death Penalty

- Port Louis, Mauritius, 12/18 - The Mauritian branch of Amnesty International (AI) has petitioned Prime Minister Navin Ramgoolam demanding the scrapping of the death penalty in the island nation. - [Angola Press]

Dear readers,

This is the kind of news you have to be very careful of. According the Angola Press the capital punishment has been put on hold on the island. The death penalty has been completely abolished in Mauritius since 1989. This news agency seem to be profitting on hypes rather than facts - just like many.

This confirms one of my common statement as true: Make sure you know the Authenticity of the source.

Why does google (News) trust this source???

Happy New Year 2006

Happy New Year 2006 dear readers,

I know that quite a few of you have recently been visiting just in case there are any updates.

2006 for me is more of managing my time better. As ever, I have more things that I want to do. I have to get my Charter sorted and definitely regularly updating my blogs (and now my podcasts :)).

2005 has been very hectic and I do not expect this year to be otherwise. However, I am intending to make the most of it and start by putting my visions into practice.

Things I intend to do this year:

  • Learn a new language
  • Home Makeover
  • Think and document on a possible new methodology on education system (in Mauritius)
  • Setup MySQL/Apache for our home server
  • Learn a few Car fixing skills (we may never know)
  • Update you with the status of the Chagossian Ilois
