Did you know that the number of international migrants reached 244 million in 2015, a 40% increase from the year 2000? Immigration is not a new phenomenon. This international movement of people dates back to the pre- historic days. That was when Homo Sapiens who occupied all of Africa about 150,000 years ago, moved out and settled across Australia, Asia and Europe by 40,000 years BCE. This was the first human migration. Afterwards people started immigrating around the world in search of work and better livelihood.

Either Eric Draper doesn't know a snail kite from a Canada goose, or he's lying through his teeth. My money is on the latter. I can see his nose growing from here. Draper is the executive director of Florida Audubon Society. Surely the man knows a thing or two about endangered creatures in Florida.

The Azerbaijan Democratic Republic, the first democratic and secular republic in the Muslim world, was established in 1918, but was incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1920. Azerbaijan regained independence in 1991. Shortly thereafter, during the Nagorno-Karabakh War, neighboring Armenia occupied Nagorno-Karabakh, its surrounding territories and the enclaves of Karki, Yukhary Askipara, Barkhudarly and Sofulu. The Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, which emerged in Nagorno-Karabakh, continues to be not diplomatically recognized by any nation and the region is still considered a de jure part of Azerbaijan, despite being de facto independent since the end of the war.

Your life is never the same for two days in a row; in fact it sometimes feels like it's changing with every moment. There are the positive ones, there are the negative ones, and there are the seemingly neutral ones.

Racist, religious, and ethnic jokes are generally reprehensible. However, when properly used, they can do much to bring people together rather than tearing them apart. I love racist jokes. If you are shocked by this declaration, you shouldn't be because what I mean by the term is not those disgusting, brutal - and generally false - observations designed to cause offense and injury. These do not qualify as jokes, because there is nothing funny about putting people in degrading pigeonholes.

I recently did an Internet search to find out why polygamy is banned in some places in the world and is not, and even encouraged, in others. Why? Because a few years ago I did a similar search and came up with essentially nothing.

The first time I did the search I was still an Internet novice, so I thought perhaps I hadn't done it right. However this second search, undertaken several years later, turned up essentially the same result.
