Trudeau Must Defend the Rights of ‘Hotel Rwanda’ Hero

FEATURED, NEWS, Rwanda
If Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is serious about what he calls Canada’s “strong friendship” with Rwanda, and if he’s as genuinely devoted to the multilateral rules-based international order as he claims to be, now would be a good time to act like it. In the bizarre case of Paul Rusesabagina, the leading Rwandan opposition figure who vanished in Dubai on Aug. 28 and showed up a few hours later in a jail cell in Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, Trudeau may even be uniquely positioned to step up. That’s the view of Philippe Larochelle, a Montreal human rights lawyer on the legal team Rusesabagina’s family has retained on his behalf. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have described Rusesabagina’s case as both an enforced disappearance and extraordinary rendition, in violatio

Tips to Restore Sexual Intimacy

FEATURED, Health, NEWS
What if you want sex more often than your mate? Or vice versa? Too often the “deprived” partner will blame the other. Don’t make this mistake. By calling your beloved selfish, cold, or frigid, you will only make things worse. Pretending that no problem exists also will hurt your relationship.
