    nawashear kaur When you go around town asking people certain questions, you always get to a point where you end up questioning a person with certain pre-conceived notions thinking he/she would answer in a certain way. This young Lady consistently put me in speechless situations with her thoughts and views on leadership and the role of youth in our current system. I went there with some questions in mind and left there with more questions. If Singh is Kinng, then this Kaur is queenn! Naradamuni

              Democracy is founded on robust dialogue, but somewhere along the line, politics replaced sex as the one thing in America we don't discuss in mixed company ­ even amongst friends and family. Bring it to the Table is a participatory online platform, community engagement campaign, and webisode series aimed at bridging America's political divide and elevating the national conversation. If you are tired of hyper-partisanship, this is a platform for being part of the solution. How do you present ideas? How do you argue your beliefs and when do you compromise and negotiate? Are you combative and inflammatory or are you a solutions-oriented thinker? WHY DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU BELIEVE? Here's how it works: We are traveling the country inviting people to sit down at The Table and express your beliefs on camera. Join us in making politics an acceptable topic for dinner conversation again!

                  www.DemocracyNow.org - Oakland police repeatedly fired tear gas and flash grenades Tuesday night as protesters attempted to retake the Occupy Oakland encampment outside City Hall — only 12 hours after police tore apart the camp and arrested more than 90 people in a pre-dawn raid. Observers said that at times, the downtown resembled a warzone last night. Some protesters are being held on $10,000 bail. Democracy Now! speak to Rachel Jackson of the Oscar Grant Committee Against Police Brutality and State Repression about how the police are handling Occupy Oakland. Also interviewed is John Avalos, San Francisco City Supervisor and a candidate for mayor of San Francisco. On Tuesday, Avalos introduced a resolution supporting the right of the Occupy San Francisco protest to continue its peaceful assembly in public spaces.

                    In his new book, Twilight Of The Elites, journalist and MSNBC host Chris Hayes poses a challenge with special resonance for the MIT community: Are the institutions that foster America's leadership class working as intended? Hayes' book covers ground as diverse as education, the financial sector, our political system and the Catholic church in an attempt to understand whether the American elite truly upholds the values of competition and meritocracy it claims to espouse. His conclusions are troubling. Hayes joined Atlantic Senior Editor and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Visiting Scholar Ta-Nehisi Coates in conversation on Tuesday November 13 at MIT's Simmons Hall for an election-year discussion on the future of our country and an assessment of its institutions.

                      With estimates of well over 5,000 deaths, the uprising in Syria is all but assured to be the Arab Spring's bloodiest conflict to date. As the toll mounts, calls are growing for the international community to intervene by arming rebels fighting the Assad regime and even direct military intervention. Democracy Now! hosts a debate on the merits and pitfalls of foreign intervention in Syria with two guests. "I'm not opposed to helping the opposition -- the problem right now is that we are not sure who to arm," says Joshua Landis, director of the Center for Middle East Studies at the University of Oklahoma and editor of “Syria Comment,” a daily online newsletter on Syrian politics. We're also joined by Karam Nachar, a cyber-activist and Ph.D. candidate at Princeton University working with Syrian protesters via social media platforms. "There's a humanitarian disaster unfolding on the ground," Nachar says. "[The world has] a moral responsibility to protect the Syrian people."
