Mandela's condition serious but improving: President Zuma

Jun 16 2013, 3:54pm CDT | by

Cape Town, June 17 (IANS) Former South African president Nelson Mandela, who has been hospitalised for over a week, continues to get better in a Pretoria hospital, President Jacob Zuma said Sunday.

Cape Town, June 17 — Former South African president Nelson Mandela, who has been hospitalised for over a week, continues to get better in a Pretoria hospital, President Jacob Zuma said Sunday.

The revered ex-leader remained in a serious condition as he recovered from a lung infection, BBC reported Zuma as saying.

"Over the last two days, although he remains serious, his doctors have stated that his improvement has been sustained," Zuma said, adding that the 94-year-old anti-apartheid icon "continues to engage with family".

Zuma made the remarks while addressing a gathering for Youth Day in KwaZulu-Natal province in remembrance of the 1976 Soweto uprisings against apartheid.

The president asked the audience to join him in wishing Mandela a happy Father's Day.

Mandela has been in and out of hospital several times since last December.

The Youngest Victims: Combating the Social Isolation of Ebola Orphans

Oct 21 2014 11:22am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

In 2002, I had the opportunity to meet Nelson Mandela. We were speaking about the phenomenon of social isolation -- a longtime area of focus for me -- and I said, "I can imagine you know a lot about isolation." But to my surprise, Madiba responded, "No." He told me that even on Robben Island, imprisoned for so many years, "We were all brothers working together with a common purpose. I was never alone." And then he ...

# 7 Dispirited Liberal America

Oct 13 2014 1:04pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Summary: In Liberal America these days, one encounters a good deal of hopelessness about the future of our country. Why the hopelessness? The difficult circumstances certainly play a part. But they are not answer enough. Hopelessness is also a sign of disconnection from the realm of the spirit. In that realm, there is no sense of "impossible." And this disconnection from the spirit is also at the root of Liberal America's weakness. This points to a cure for our hopel ...

South Africa Tells Dalai Lama: No Visa, No Cry

Oct 7 2014 1:52pm CDT | Source: Big Government

The South African government asked the Dalai Lama to withdraw his application for a visa to visit the country, for reasons “in the national interest,” according to Guy Lieberman, a Tibetan activist who helped organize the three previous visits by the Dalai Lama to South Africa. The government had said that the Tibetan leader, who was scheduled to attend the Nobel Peace Laureates world summit this week, changed his mind about attending, “thus effectively cancelling his visa application.” The eve ...

12 Ways Parents Can Protect Their Kids From Too Many Pills

Oct 2 2014 1:28pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

We are turning our kids into pill poppers. The rate of ADHD has tripled in just 20 years -- it is now diagnosed in 11 percent of all children aged 4-17 and is medicated in 6 percent of them. And the percentages get really crazy for teenage boys -- 20 percent are diagnosed and 10 percent are medicated. There is also compelling evidence that most of this "ADHD" comes from careless diagnosis. How else to explain that a child's date of birth is the best predictor of wh ...

Fox News Pundit Winds Up On The Terrorist Watch List

Sep 23 2014 3:30pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The Department Of Homeland Security is known for being somewhat overzealous with its terrorist watch list—Nelson Mandela was infamously on the list as late as 2008, for instance. Hundreds of thousands of people are routinely placed on the list, often for very minimal reasons. On Tuesday, the world got another glimpse into the baffling choices the federal government sometimes makes when conservative writer and Fox News pundit Stephen Hayes revealed that he had been p ...

This article originally appeared at TheNation.com We live in a time fraught with bad news. From the toll of violence and poverty to the escalating march of climate change, every week brings temptations to despair. Hope may actually be more beleaguered in the wake of a president who won the office in part by branding himself with it. Many have concluded that political participation has become a futile game. For myself, I deal with potent ...

Putin: The Psyche of the Modern Dictator

Sep 5 2014 10:46am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Dictators have always existed. They have taken many forms. We can go back to Rome, to the rise of Julius Caesar; an ancient democratic state that became psychologically convinced it was safer, and easier, to trust the power of a single person over the power of the people collectively. We can look to more modern examples, like Stalin, who took over a state that was already a dictatorship, and used h ...
