• The Worst Narco-State in History? After 13-Year War, Afghanistan’s Opium Trade Floods the Globe

    http://democracynow.org - In the 13 years since the United States invaded Afghanistan in 2001, the country's opium production has doubled, now accounting for about 90 percent of the world's supply. To learn more, we are joined by Matthieu Aikins, a Kabul-based journalist whose latest report for Rolling Stone magazine explores Afghanistan's heroin boom. "What has happened in Afghanistan over the last 13 years has been the flourishing of a narco-state that is really without any parallel in history," Aikins says. "This is something that is extraordinary, that is catastrophic, that has grave danger for the future and yet there has been virtually no discussion of in recent years."

  • Pilot on world trip inspires young women in Kabul

    (12 Jul 2017) LEADIN: An Afghan-American pilot on a solo flight around the world seeking to inspire young women across the globe has taken a detour to visit her native Afghanistan. STORYLINE: Faced with cameras and presented with bouquets of flowers, Shaesta Waiz is greeted like a celebrity as she arrives for a talk with school girls in Kabul. Waiz may not be a film actress or popstar but to these young women she is an even greater source of inspiration. Waiz and her family moved to the United States in 1987 where she got her pilot's license, becoming the youngest certified female pilot from Afghanistan. She has now embarked on a round-the-world trip, inspiring legions of young women as she goes. Waiz began her journey in Florida in May and has since made stops in 11 countries, wit...

    More than 30 years of war have virtually destroyed the theatre community in Afghanistan. Militant religious groups make it difficult to bring a production of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors to an international festival at London’s Globe Theatre, and this uplifting film tells their story. Shakespeare From Kabul opens with auditions taking place in the Afghan capital, and we then follow the actors to rural India, where they rehearse safe from the security threats of Kabul, but far away from their friends and family. The film concludes with the triumphant and moving performance that takes place at the legendary Globe Theatre. Facing an uncertain welcome on their return, the film gives real insight into the struggles and bravery of the actors determined to show the world a very different s...

Waiz and her family moved to the United States in 1987 where she got her pilot's license, becoming the youngest certified female pilot from Afghanistan. She has now embarked on a round-the-world trip, inspiring legions of young women as she goes. Waiz began her journey in Florida in May and has since made stops in 11 countries, with eight more to complete her mission. She took off from Daytona Beach in May and has mapped out a route that will take her on a journey of approximately 25,800 kilometres (16,000 miles) around 19 countries, including Canada, Spain, Britain, Italy, Greece, Egypt, Bahrain, India, Singapore and Australia, before ending the trip back in the US in August. The 29-year-old left her single-engine plane in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, to take a commercial flight to Kabul where she arrived on Monday night. But while it may just be a short stopover, Waiz says that she intends to come back to her native country once her journey is complete to work with young women. "My plan is to come back here to Kabul and start an organisation that really helps women, it will really help you women achieve your goals of flying," Waiz says during a talk with Afghan students. "My goal for as long as I can when this trip is done, is to come back here and really help you women, because you are all...a part of me is within you all." Much has changed for Afghan women since the Taliban were ejected from power 16 years ago. During their rule, women were not permitted to attend school or work, were largely confined to their homes, and subjected to public beatings for violations of strict rules on what they could wear in public. Now millions of Afghan girls go to school, compared to practically none in 2001, and many women work for the government and security services, run their own business, and are elected to parliament.

Similar results in completely different aircraft designs. THERE WERE NO SURVIVORS: PILOT HOTDOGGING B-52 JET AT AIRSHOW. A TOTAL STALL LOW TO GROUND. NO CHANCE TO RECOVER. At fairchild airforce base.The B-52 Stratofortress has no ailerons as they would cause excessive twisting of the highly flexible wing. It achieves roll control entirely through spoilerons mounted near the center of the wing in about the same place as most gliders. Therefore in this situation when the plane banks to the left the pilot uses full right spoilerons therefore increasing and losing more lift in this critical situation. Broker is William Davis Realty.

Which of these planes do you like more? The russian Ilyushin IL-76 or the american Boeing C-17 Globemaster? Write it in the comments. In addition to that please tell me which planes I should compare next. You decide !! It`s time for another "aviation battle". This time someone came up with the idea to compare the Ilyushin IL-76 with the C-17 Globemaster. Both planes were built to transport cargo to areas where normale planes wouldn` t be able to land. They are mainly used in military operations but especially the IL-76 is a reliably civilian cargo plane which is still used a lot around the globe. Especially Airlines like Silk Way and Aviacon Zitotrans are still operating many IL-76`s. 960 IL-76` s have been bulit and the first flight was in 1974. The first flight of the C-17 was in 1991 and until today 279 have been built. The Ilyushin Il-76 (NATO reporting name: Candid) is a multi-purpose four-engine strategic airlifter designed by the Ilyushin design bureau. It was first planned as a commercial freighter in 1967, as a replacement for the Antonov An-12. It was designed for delivering heavy machinery to remote, poorly served areas of the USSR. Military versions of the Il-76 have seen widespread use in Europe, Asia and Africa, including use as an airborne refueling tanker or as a command center. The Boeing C-17 Globemaster III is a large military transport aircraft. It was developed for the United States Air Force (USAF) from the 1980s to the early 1990s by McDonnell Douglas. The C-17 carries forward the name of two previous piston-engined military cargo aircraft, the Douglas C-74 Globemaster and the Douglas C-124 Globemaster II. The C-17 commonly performs strategic airlift missions, transporting troops and cargo throughout the world; additional roles include tactical airlift, medical evacuation and airdrop duties. Thanks for watching, I hope you liked it and pleas don` t forget to rate.

Student Madhi is getting an anchor today, in spite of what his parents will think about it. vpro Metropolis was a video project by Dutch broadcast organisation vpro, that ran from 2008 to 2015. Metropolis is made by a global collective of young filmmakers and TV producers, reporting on remarkable stories from their own country/city. We made a trip around the globe on one single issue: from local beauty ideals to Elvis impersonators, to what's it like being gay, or an outcast or a dog in different cultures.
