From the hazy vantage point of the Indus, scarcely populated Canada is the land of dreams and opportunities. 0SHARES Share Tweet Email Scarcely populated Canada is the land of dreams and opportunities. PHOTO: EXPRESS/FILE “It is not like they are welcoming you at the airport with a job letter,” says Hina Jawad*, who migrated to Canada from Pakistan in 2005 along with her family with high expectations but little in the way of preparation. “I didn’t know anyone in Toronto and I had no social or professional base here.” There were hurdles on the way as she set out on a rigorous job search, sending out two dozen job applications per day and making cold calls at various offices to drop off her resume. As someone who had served as an Assistant Vice President (AVP) in corporate banking back home, she would constantly find herself being offered entry-level positions in Canada. “I was told that I will have to complete … [Read more...] about So you want to move to Canada, eh?

THE question was simple: “Are you African American?” But it was one that left Rachel Dolezal, with her dark skin and head of brown corkscrew curls, stuttering for an answer. It also made her globally infamous, as this much-respected “black” woman – a lecturer in African American studies at East Washington University, a prominent activist for black people, and the mother of two black sons – was in fact a Montana-raised girl who had been born to parents who claim German & Czech descent . “I’ll never forget that day as long as I live,” recalls Rachel, 38, who lives in Spokane, Washington. “My whole world literally came crashing in.” She’s not wrong. The confrontation with a reporter, which was shown live on local TV last June (and has since had nearly 2.5 million views online), followed an interview about police closing a recent case of hate crimes directed toward her . As she stormed off … [Read more...] about The woman born white but says she’s black speaks out about her year of hell and death threats
ABOUT six months ago I warned that Donald Trump was one disaster away from the keys to the White House.When the Hillary Clinton FBI email scandal broke a few weeks before the vote, I feared the worst.Even then, though, I think most people in Ireland believed it could never happen. Surely they wouldn’t?But after Leicester winning the Premier League and Brexit getting across the line in the UK, perhaps Trump’s victory was inevitable. Indeed, we should not be surprised a reality TV star has become president — as it almost happened here too.It’s easy to forget but Michael D Higgins wasn’t always a nailed-on cert for Aras an Uachtaran. Far from it, in fact.While vertically challenged, the Galwayman has done an outstanding job as statesman for the country. It’s hard now to think of anyone else doing the job.But Sean Gallagher was very close to getting the gig for himself.The Dragons’ Den star was one dodgy tweet from succeeding Mary McAleese in the … [Read more...] about We nearly had our own Trump in the Aras in Sean Gallagher
Investigators working under special counsel Robert Mueller since he was appointed by the US Justice Department in May to take over the probe into possible Russian meddling in the 2016 election are planning to speak with key intelligence officials, The Washington Post reported late Wednesday. The newspaper - quoting five officials with knowledge of the planned interviews - said one event of interest to Mueller is an exchange on March 22, when the national intelligence director, Daniel Coats, told associates that Trump had asked him to intervene to get ex-FBI head James Comey to reduce the focus on Trump's former national security adviser, Mike Flynn, in the ongoing FBI investigation. Comey told Congress last week he believed he was fired by President Trump to undermine the agency's ongoing Russia probe. Coats, National Security Agency chief Mike Rogers and Richard Ledgett, who recently quit as NSA deputy director, have agreed to speak to investigators, according … [Read more...] about Donald Trump under investigation for possible obstruction of justice: US media
