Whose Rights Is The Hun Sen Government In Cambodia Protecting?

forbes.com — Two separate incidents in the past week in Cambodia--a crackdown on protestors and a scuttling of the minimum wage demands for garment sector workers--are raising serious questions, again, about who the Hun Sen government is out to serve.

Narendra Modi - Forbes

forbes.com — Countless American sitcoms from Friends to The Big Bang Theory focus on "doubling up" or living with roommates. TV makes it seem like the United States is a nation of buddies living together. Is it really as widespread as sitcoms make us believe? The answer is a definitive yes.

Indian Govt Sets Up Committee To Review Environmental Laws; Not Everyone Is Happy With It
