The Humanion Humanity of the Year 2017





























The Humanion Humanity of the Year 2017: Angela Merkel Elaine Philips Jeremy Corbyn Juha Sipilä and Anu Vehviläinen Katharine Viner Laura Kuenssberg Little Toby and His Mother Maddi Thurgood and Her Mother and The Rohingya People: The Violated Humanity


|| December 06: 2016: London: England: United Kingdom || ά. The Humanion started The Humanity of the Year Since last year, in which it was announced on December 08. This year, we decided to coincide the announcement with the Finland’s Centenary Celebrations of its hundred years of independence and there is a reason for this move for this year two Suomalainens jointly featured in the list. This is simply based on The Humanion's Editorial Judgment and Opinion after following the year. No one is consulted about this nor the person:s themselves informed of their becoming declared as such. They will know as The Humanion Readers that they have been declared as such. This is The Humanion's effort, initiative to make a 'Statement' to say and show that power, market, money, wealth, manipulation and propaganda can not dictate, define and impose what is to be celebrated or what is good. The Humanion Humanity of the Year 2017 are, the numbering does not reflect any order of preference and done alphabetically, 01: Ms Angela Merkel, featured last year as well, 02: Ms Elaine Philips, 03: Mr Jeremy Corbyn, featured last year as well, 04: Mr Juha Sipilä and Ms Anu Vehviläinen, jointly featured, 05: Ms Katharine Viner, 06: Ms Laura Kuenssberg, 07: Master Little Tobi and His Mother, 08: Ms Maddi Thurgood and Her Mother and 09: The Rohingya People: The Violated Humanity.

In these nine there are many human beings, persons and people, who stand out as beacons of light for our ceaseless efforts to strive and stride to advance the human condition and, thus, create an island of candle lights of inspiration made of hope, faith, humanity, compassion, goodness and belief that better is not only possible but achievable . Here are persons and people, human beings, remarkable for their services to humanity, in their relevant field and arena of work and, who have shown courage, strength, determination, resolute conviction and faith in seeking to rise to the challenge without losing any ground in relation to their faith, belief and choice in goodness that is the essence of what humanity is about and in doing the good, in seeking to do good, they seek to do, despite and regardless of the adversity they face, the criticism, the attacks and vilifications, the sustained and continuous abuses thrown on their paths, to most of them and the barriers and obstacles they needed to overcome, they have shown the undefeatable human spirit, essence, steel so that these all stand out as beacons to the world: to encourage, to inspire, to empower, to connect and to bring together that what humanity is; without goodness that does not exist and without it there is no humanity for than we are only physiology of nothing but biology.

In the Editorial Judgment and Opinion of The Humanion the following persons have done their absolute utmost to do the highest possible good to this world and to humanity, including, of course, their own nations and in doing so they have defined what spirit, what element, what steel, what humanity has made, shaped and constructed them that make them what they are and they stand against all adversity and make a stand: committed, determined, resolute and absolutely focused in their faith in goodness and in their conviction that humanity's synonym is goodness. The Humanion celebrates that and invites everyone to celebrate that that are expressed in shining light...May they continue to serve their own countries, nations and humanity long many years and years to come....And let the world know that the world, despite all the darkness and evils, that humanity has to deal with, fight and, often, forced to endure, is not all there is to the world, to humanity and to this human existence and life, that there are astonishing array of human beings, persons and people and peoples, agencies and bodies spread across the globe, ceaselessly seeking to advance the human condition with their tireless, committed, determined and ceaseless works for common good.


Angela Merkel


|| September 24: 2017 || ά. No one can, consulting world politics, find many instances, where in a democracy, a leader or party, seeking re-election for the fourth term, achieving the higher margins of votes. It is not humanly possible for whatever that leader or party does in government to achieve increased number of votes at an election, seeking for a fourth term. Yet, that was what precisely Ms Angela Merkel was seeking to do. And despite all the media uproar about the rising, albeit, in different guise and name, Hitler's ghost, one must keep things in perspective. The fact is this that Ms Merkel has won a fourth term, particularly, after her courageous leadership, in which she had stood firm, resolute and absolutely committed to respond to the refugee crisis with humanity, compassion and empathy and, like a Prometheus Being a Woman, she had stood firm, resolute and unshakeable in the face of the 'outcry' and because of that the European and world media and the populism-band-wagon, went mad, on which these new ghosts of Hitler, got on board and screamed on, seeking to fuel phobias and hatred of all kinds, against almost all types, groups and classes of people other than those, they consider the 'true blue blood Germans'. And the German majority has stood with Ms Merkel and they showed where they stood at this election.

At the News at Ten the BBC news reported a leader of this Hitler's ghost-force, who reportedly said, ''We will hunt them down; we will hunt Angela Merkel down.'' This is all Germany must hear. This is what these forces are like. But at this election the majority of the Germans have voted to reject this violent, ruthless, vicious and merciless force, that still speaks like Hitler: 'hunt down'. This is the 'nazi-phrase'. They want to hunt anyone and everyone, that they did not want to exist. This is nazism. And the modern Germany and the modern German nation have voted to reject that and sided to stand for democracy and rule of law, where, despite their threat of violence and xenophobia, no one on the democratic side, speaks of 'hunting' anyone down. The fact is this: Hitler did some paintings before he had entered the path, that had brought destruction and evils to the world; those paintings were not destroyed by anyone and they survived and were sold in some auction few years ago. This is what happens when democracy rules the world. On the other hand, for the sake of argument, if Hitler had won the war and subjugated the world, he would have, it can be almost a hypothetical guarantee, burnt down the entire world and human heritage of arts and cultural effects. This is what Hitlers, even their ghosts, do. They hunt, they burn and they terminate all, that they do not like, and all, that stand in their way. Germany and the modern German nation have closed that gap. Germany has closed that door forever. There is no 'hunt down', there is no 'termination', there is no supremacy of anything and anyone but the people having 'the power' and that people must exercise that 'power' through democratic means and through the exercise of rightful, valid and legitimate mechanism of, what is called, the rule of law.

This election should show the world that 'the modern German nation', that has been emerging, soul-searching, debating, discussing, discoursing and reshaping the national psyche since the end of Hitler, has reached a state of 'maturity' as a nation and is no longer going to be defined by what Germany was 'forced' to do by the Nazis and by the entire Hitler apparatus so that it all had wedged a tectonic breach between the pre-war Germany and post-Hitler Germany. This modern Germany has sought to bridge this 'tectonic breach' by simply closing the gap so that the entire 'gap' is eased into the earth, in which was buried 'the episode' of the nazis and Hitler. And from there Germany and the modern German nation have emerged in this mature state where, those, who were hanging on whatever remnants were hanging in that 'gap' and when the 'gap' got closed, they ran to find whatever else there was left on the new earth and from there, they will try to begin again. And they have begun; except they will not find much feeding them because now they are living among the members of that mature German nation. And no longer, for the majority of this German nation, Germany can be described as Pre and Post Hitler. It is modern Germany, today's Germany and it is a country and people: forward looking and future-visioning with much to offer to Europe, to the world and to world humanity.

This modern, mature German nation has shown itself in this election. And this is, probably, going to be the lasting legacy for this century, that will continue to bear Ms Angela Merkel's name. Goodness me, this is no mean feat of a legacy for a political world leader in today's cynical world. Not many world leaders could ever come anywhere close to where Ms Merkel stands with this legacy. The Humanion congratulates Ms Merkel and her party and the German people, majority of whom voted for this vision of this modern and mature nation of Germany: a nation at home and in ease with itself, that is willing, determined and committed to be part of the very humanity and the very world, this very Europe and the very future of Europe, in which it has and should take a leading role: lead in science, in mathematics, in engineering, in design and technology, in trade, business and commerce, in innovation and ingenuity, in human space exploration, in medicine, in arts, culture, architecture, literature, music and, not excluding, sociology, political economics, philosophy, political philosophy, poetry and many other expressions of all human creativity. Those, outside Germany, who think of Germany simply, in terms of the 'lowest of the low of human physiology' Hitler, that was what he was, is and will forever remain so, but, he will remain so in the dustbin of history alone, will be utterly 'tunnel visioned. This election and election results should focus the world to that Germany, that is at a mature state as a country, as a nation and as a people and this country and this nation have much, much, much to give to the world and to humanity.

However, the work is not done; not yet: Ms Angela Merkel's work is not done but has barely begun. The work of the the German Democratic, Social Democratic, Secular, Progressive, Green and Humanist Forces is not done; it has just begun with this election. It is time they must take this as their final wake up call to rise and unite to fight and send the ghost of Hitler back into the dustbin of history. This means that the issues, the divergence between the former east and west must be taken with urgency, force and diligence, as well as, bringing together Germany more closer, particularly, as a unified identity, than the currently very loose federal-state situation and communities of people in these geographies are brought more together and connected from all regions. It is time to create a cultural revolution, connecting, joining, uniting and empowering people together: a unison social, cultural and creative endeavour of inclusion and integration. Further, the most vital of all political urgency is the task of taking on expanding social justice: politically, economically, socially, culturally and communally, aiming, aspiring and seeking to empower and redistribute 'power' as empowerment to: the individuals, to the persons, to families, to communities and, therefore, to civic society. The Humanion invites Ms Merkel, her party and party colleagues and all other political forces mentioned, to use this fourth term, be defined by these 'left to be done jobs' and only this way, no one needs to ''hunt' Hitlers ghosts'; they will vanish for take the oxygen and water out and life can not exist. Take all that political, economical, social and cultural evils, that make up that oxygen and water for the Hitlers ghosts and they will simply have to accept defeat and vanish 'politically'. This is the revolution you can not but take on, must take on and shall seek and strive to begin, conduct and bring about across Germany during the forth coming four-year 'Angela Merkel Epoch'. This is what The Humanion challenges Ms Angela Merkel to rise to do: to work ever so vigorously than ever before, to deliver an Angela Merkel Epoch for Germany in the next four-years. ω.

Elaine Phillips


|| July 15: 2017: University of South Wales News || ά. Inspirational student Ms Elaine Phillips graduated this week from the University of South Wales with top marks, despite being diagnosed with dyslexia and a life-changing brain condition. Ms Phillips, 53, from Whitchurch, Cardiff, has succeeded in gaining a first class honours in BSc Hons in Health and Social Care Management, even though, she suffered from debilitating symptoms for the majority of her studies.

Ms Phillips worked in a care home for 28 years, but after she was made redundant when she was 46, made the decision to go back into education. “When I left school at 16, I couldn’t read or write. Whilst I worked at the care home I taught myself, with some help from colleagues and worked my way up to Care Officer.” she said. “When the home closed, I studied a ‘Return to Learn’ course at Coleg Glan Afan, now, Cardiff and Vale College, then a level-two applied science course, followed by a two-year Access course. I was there for four years. Whilst at college I was diagnosed with dyslexia, which was re-assessed when I came to university.

I owe a lot to Kerry Roberts, who worked at Cardiff and Vale College. She first diagnosed me with dyslexia and coached me through my time at college. Kerry knew that I could and would achieve my goals and we are still friends to this day. University was daunting at first. I didn’t believe I should be there. I don’t think I would have progressed as well as I did, without the support from the University’s Disability and Dyslexia Service, the faculty and my tutors.”

During the second year of her degree, she started to suffer unbearable headaches, nausea and dizziness. When these dramatically worsened, she was sent for an emergency brain scan and finally diagnosed with Chiari Malformation, a condition where the lower part of the brain pushes down into the spinal canal. Since then, Ms Phillips has suffered with slurred speech, severe pain, difficulty walking and a complete lack of energy.

“While this was going on, I had two modules to finish but I was determined not to defer my studies, I wanted to graduate this year. It meant that I was able to work for one day, then I would have to rest for three days.” she said. She feels passionately that no-one should be deterred from further education because of a disability or learning difficulty.

“Young people should not be ashamed of being dyslexic. You are not stupid and you can’t help having the condition.” she said. “We want to learn and better ourselves. Do not let anything deter you from study. I wish I had done it when I was younger but I didn’t have the confidence.”

Ms Madhulata Patel, Course Leader and Senior Lecturer at the University, said, “Elaine is a truly inspirational student because she had so many challenges, but she dealt with them with a gritted determination to achieve both academically and professionally.

She is a great role model for other students, who think they will not succeed. She is absolute proof that, if you want something badly enough, you can get there.”

Jeremy Corbyn


|| June 07: 2017 || ά. Mr Jeremy Corbyn will speak at six rallies across England, Scotland and Wales on Wednesday, June 07, the final day before polling day. Yesterday Mr Corbyn addressed thousands at six simultaneous events, which were  watched live online by 01.5 million people. On the final day of campaigning, Mr Corbyn will begin the day in Glasgow Central and travel to Weaver Vale, Clwyd West, Watford, Harrow East, until he reaches the final rally in Islington South. He will set out Labour’s plans to transform Britain for the many, not the few, including: No tax rises for 95 percent of people and asking the top five percent and big businesses to pay a bit more to fund our schools, hospitals, social care and invest in our economy

Protecting pensioners incomes with the triple lock and guaranteeing winter fuel payments, Providing an extra £37 billion for the NHS and £08 billion for social care, Raising the minimum wage to £10 an hour, ending the public sector pay cap and bringing in workers’ rights from day one of any job, Scrapping university tuition fees and bringing back education maintenance grants, Cutting class sizes in schools and bringing in free school meals for all primary school children, Building a million new homes, Bringing rail, water, parts of the energy system and post back into public ownership to cut bills and improve in services. ommenting on Labour’s last day of campaigning, Mr Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the Labour Party, said, “I am incredibly proud of Labour’s manifesto to transform Britain for the many not the few. On the last day before people go to the polls, we will be campaigning in towns and cities across England, Scotland and Wales with our message that change can come.

Our campaign has been about the kind of country we want to live in, one in which the wealth creators, that means all of us, share in that wealth and everyone has the opportunity to succeed. Tomorrow, the British people will be able to vote for a government that will put an end to the rigged system that benefits the super-rich. Every vote for Labour will be a vote to put power, wealth and opportunity back in the hands of the many, not the few. Speaking at Glasgow Central, Mr Corbyn will say,  Older people have given us so much but they are being held back by a Conservative government that is refusing to protect their incomes through the pensions triple lock, is taking away the winter fuel allowance from millions of pensioners and demanding people pay for social care with their homes.

Labour will do things differently. We won’t take older people for granted like the Tories, we will treat them with the respect they deserve and have earned. We will guarantee the triple lock, keep the winter fuel allowance and invest in social care to provide security and dignity for the many not the few.”

Speaking at Weaver Vale, he will say, Our NHS is the nation’s pride and joy, and our greatest achievement but it is under threat from underfunding and privatisation after seven years of the Conservatives. We can’t afford another five years of the Tories. The election on Thursday is an opportunity to say enough is enough. We have had enough of our NHS being undermined, we’ve had enough of NHS services being sold off for profit, and we’ve had enough of our brilliant NHS staff being treated with contempt.

Labour will end the Conservatives’ plans for more privatisation, give our NHS the funding it needs and scrap the pay cap and give health workers the pay rise they have needed for years.” Speaking at Clywd West, he will say, “When police officers warned Theresa May as Home Secretary about the damaging effect of cuts, she accused them of ‘scaremongering’ and ‘crying wolf’. What a disgraceful way to treat those brave officers who keep us safe every day. Labour will never take for granted those who keep us safe. We will invest to reverse years of Tory cuts, and employ 10,000 more police officers, 3,000 firefighters, 3,000 prison officers, 1,000 intelligence staff and 500 border guards. We will do whatever it takes to keep our people safe.”

Speaking at Watford, Mr Corbyn is expected to will say, “The Conservatives have held students back for too long, saddling them with massive debts by trebling tuition fees. Labour will lift this cloud of debt, now an average of £45,000  and scrap tuition fees as part of our plan to transform Britain for the many not the few. We believe everyone should have the chance to study, not just those that can afford it, and we will restore the principle that education is free. No one should be put off from getting an education through a lack of money or fear of debt.”

Speaking at Harrow East, he Mr Corbyn will say, “No child should go hungry at school. The Conservatives are ending universal free school meals for five, six and seven-year-olds and giving them a breakfast that costs 06.8p, that’s barely a thimble of cornflakes. By charging VAT on private schools fees, Labour will make sure all primary school children get a healthy meal at school. We will build a society for the many not the few, starting with our children eating a healthy free lunch together.”

Juha Sipilä and Anu Vehviläinen: Prime Minister and Local Government and Public Reforms

Mr Juha Sipilär, Pime Minister, Left, Ms Anu Vehvilainen, Minister of Local Government and Public Reforms of Finland Government

Mr Juha Sipilä  and Ms Anu Vehviläinen, Prime Minister of Finland and Minister of Local Government and Public Reforms  respectively. Finland is physically not a very small country but is home to a nation made of not by as large a number as many other nations are and, yet, over the last one hundred years the country and its people have built up a place, they call home, which has become a force for good in the world and ranking high up in many areas of life among the assembly of nations, the latest of which was The Legatum Prosperity Index 2017 in which it has become number three. This is a testament of their astonishing achievement for among the top ten there is no place for China or India or Brazil or Russia or the United States of America, some of the most populous nations of the world. And in the recent years, under the leadership of Mr Juha Sipilä and Mr Anu Vehviläinen and their colleagues their Government has orientated Finland towards a vision of a people, nation and country that is outward-looking, future-bound, ingenuity and innovation-grounded and world-orientated so that there is hardly any place Finland has not reached. From China to India, from Peru to Colombia, from Namibia to Baangladesh, from Hong Kong to South Africa, from the United States of America to Saudi Arabia, from Poland to the United Kingdom, from Estonia to Russia Finland and Finnish businesses and agencies are working in unison to advance their arrival in the world stage as a people of peace, ingenuity and humanity.

These humanity of the North have never failed to aspire to be the Athens of the Northern Shores and the Northern wonders of life. This year, as they celebrate their centenary as an independent and sovereign people, nation, state and country, the Mr Juha Sipilä and Mr Anu Vehviläinen Government has been fortunate to stand in the leadership and lead on the celebrations of their nation and they have done well. Finland stands in the world with the Suomi people or Finnish people with their heads, minds and souls standing tall and high and they should celebrate the establishment of The Kalevalan People among the Assembly of the Humanion of this world. The centenary of Finland’s independence culminates on Finland’s Independence Day, December 06, today. The story of the 100-year-old land of the Suomi People, on the land of Suomi or Finland is an extraordinary one, that rests on the values cherished by the Suomi People, who are called, in their own language, Suomi, Suomalainen or that has been translated in English as Finns or Finnish: democracy, education, equality and freedom of speech. The climax of the centenary will be a joint effort and the programme will be rich and memorable. The celebrations will take place throughout Finland, as well as, in more than 100 countries on all the continents.

Further, under their leadership Finland has solidified, strengthened her position and directed herself to an absolute commitment to tackle climate change and made enormous contributions to the build up and reaching of the Paris Climate Change Accord and translated all that into genuine, practical and visionary policy-frame-works and set about transforming the economy into a clean, green, sustainable one where renewables and all other relevant green technologies are being developed and the economy is being transformed from a fossil-fuel based one into a sustainable circular one. And in this the development and drive, that Finland has put in pushing forward with the fast-paced development of the bio and circular economy and, particularly, the sustainable and circular use of the natural resources, including, earth, water and forests, as well as waste-products. In short, in whatever avenues there opened to go forward Finland has placed herself on every one of these opened up avenues so that all these will take her farther and farther. And in this process there opened a culture and mind-frame of a all-shifting paradigm, that we can do anything, if we wanted to commit ourselves to achieving that.

Suomen Tasavalta is the Suomi name of the Republic of Finland and the country became an independent state on December 06, 1917. The newly born state was willed into being by the Suomi people after a long struggle of independence. For a hundred years the Suomalainens or Finns have been engaged in the building of their country and making decisions together. The unbroken period of a century of democracy is exceptional and Finland has often reached top positions in different international rankings in many areas of life. Suomen Tasavalta or the Republic of Finland and her people have proved that a nation is only limited by its imaginations and aspirations: they are as big or as small as their imaginations and aspirations for Finland houses a, physically, very small nation but the country and the people of The Kalevala have proven to the world in this one hundred years of progressive development and march past that Finland and the Suomi people are no small nation but a but a giant one in terms how high, how far and how wide in their vision and aspirations they aim and strive to reach towards and how deeply future-bracing and how visionary a people they are.

This sets them up for a good road towards many a century ahead progressing towards richer and farther heights and farther fields, areas and arenas of life in this World and Universe. The Winter War cost them much but let them found their 'Sisu', that they realised already had been planted and presented to them by a Dr Elias Lonrot in the form of their national Epic The Kalevala and they saw how that opened up magical springs and openings for composers, poets, artists, playwrights, literary figures, thinkers, sociologists, philosophers, cultural minds, singers and actors, scientists and innovators and so on to feast on and opened a renaissance in the Athens of the North and along the way they found their Kantele and realised that they had already got a magic-vessel built for them in The Kalevala, called, The Sampo and all that they had to do was to believe in that magic and just make a go. And hearing the Sibelian Symphonies they went along creating, making and shaping things. They gave the world Eemil Sillaanpa, Johan Gadolin, Erik Willebrand, Madetoja, the Saarinens, Larin Paraske for there is no parallel, in humanity, that can be found to match her epic mind and abilities, Minna Caanth, Aleksis Kiivi, artists like Gallen and Edelfelt, visionary scientific minds, such as, Verner Suomi and the names can go on without, even, reaching anywhere closer to the present.

But must we mention two of the present gifts to the World from Finland: a Mr Martti Ahtisaari, former President of Finland and a Nobel Laureate for Peace, a formidable philosopher mind in peace-building, peace-negotiating and advancing the cause and necessity of peace and peace-building and from another world, that can not exist without peace: music, a soul, born in 1952, Ms Kaija Saariaho, a composer, musician and conductor, to whose works and creations the world will find an abounding, inspiring new Universe. And there are so many areas of science, medicine, neurology, genetics, biochemistry, drug development, mathematics, technology and bio, neuro and geo-physical sciences, engineering, architecture and design and in sustainable, green and circular economics revolutionary activities, to name but a few fields, Finland can match the largest of nations, such as China. And this is, probably, the best possible complement anyone can give to the Suomi people, the people of The Kalevala, to Finland. And with this complement The Humanion invites the people of Finland to begin a new century with asserting their names, the names of their forebears, not in translations but in Suomi: The land and the country is Suomi, her language is Suomi and in Suomi her children are called Suomalainen. We do not translate people's names, we do not translate peoples':nations' names nor do we translate the names of peoples' languages. May this new century be one hundred years through which Suomi becomes true to herself before the world and world humanity: a Suomi, whose children speak Suomen Kieli and call themselves Suomalainen. The only thing Suomi should invest for translation is getting the wealth of its literature, poetry and philosophical works translated in major worlds languages, starting with English. The Suomen Tasvalta should aspire to set up a Special Unit in a Relevant Government Department for taking up this task. Readmore


Katharine Viner: The Editor in Chief of The Guardian: The Observer Group

Ms Katharine Viner is the Editor in Chief of The Guardian: The Observer Group. Since she took hold of the reign of The Guardian Group, she found herself taking on the reality that the long-standing and much admired institution facing existential challenges on many levels, dimensions and areas, that simply could not be left 'not taken and not tackled' for the very survival and viability of the institution was in question. With her absolute commitment, sheer determination, unwavering resolve and deeply-held positive faith, pragmatic attitude and can-do-approach, exemplary leadership, where leadership is an act of inspiring to a positive vision and, most of all, her humanistic character, integrity and world-view, that hold all other qualities, traits and features of her humanity together, Ms Viner went on, taking the human part of the Guardian Group, the most vital of all components of any agency, with her and initiated the 'fight back'. For the editors and all the pen-pushers of the world, their 'work' is the best language for humanity: what we do is enough of a speech. If there is light regardless of how dark it is everyone can and will see that light. And Ms Viner's work has shown what can be done and achieved with all, that we described in Ms Viner, invested in seeking to achieve the goals. And this is not the easiest of jobs! But she has proven that she is and she does have the most strong of steel to bend all to the indomitable human will.

She has not only turned around the Guardian Group's position and brought them updated to today's changed and much more difficult world but has secured a future for the Group, that can not, must not ever be let to be get get blown off! The Guardian Group can not ever be let to be blown off and out existence! And it appears that that future is much more secure now and, though it is still a work-on-going, it will be much better in the future. However, that is not just all why Ms Viner is in this list. She has brought The Guardian and The Observer Group an updated drive and determination to not just fall down hill but go up hill in terms of quality of coverage and the areas of life, learning, living and society, that must be covered. There is a long way for the Group to go but she has redirected the Group towards the rise. The Guardian and The Observer have never been hollow publications and they must continue to dig deep and stand their ground in that 'quality', standard and professionalism and Ms Viner has re-grounded them in that earth. What is, even, more inspiring is this that Ms Viner has refused to accept a 'gone-and-done-and-dusted-humanity-world-and-we-the-people' in this mad, sad, desperately lost and led astray and made dangerous by all sorts of evils and ills, as if we are just mere physiologies being washed away in a deluge like logs and have no power as to do anything about it. Instead, she has led a positive fight back for humanity, for compassion and care, duty, connectedness, community and society and, along the way, The Guardian and The Observer's 'social conscience' has been re-focussed, re-energised and revitalised and these all can be seen in their coverage.

Laura Kuenssberg

Laura Kuenssberg interviewing Mr Juha Sipilä, the Pime Minister of Finland: Image: Finland Government


What has not been thrown at her, BBC's Political Editor, Ms Laura Kuenssberg: vicious, brutal and merciless abuse in wherever these can be expressed and directed at her. But that verbal abuse, harassment, intimidation and attacks did not just remain there, they became violent and aggressive to the point of threats to her life so much so that now she has to work with an allocated 'bodyguard' and one can not but wonder as to where we have reached, after all that 'so-called' progress we are supposed to have been making. Dehumanisation has taken its aim and seeking to attack and dismantle the very fabric of society and what is called a civic society, to afford civility, common human decency and respect for others. And, all, that has been directed at Ms Kuenssberg have been directed to many, many women, who are, like her, in professions, that make them 'public figures' and, thus, open them to those, who want to attack, harass, abuse, intimidate and threaten, not just verbally but with violent death threats etc. And all that is simply because they are women. Where have we come to: that one is forced to accept that if one is a woman she must accept that being attacked, abused, harassed, intimidated and threatened as 'normal'? What kind of a society is this? And, yet, in this society not everyone is out there seeking to abuse women, who are working and doing their jobs to advance the human condition as anyone else.

Ms Laura Kuenssberg has found herself at the receiving end of all that, which no woman should have to take. No one should 'pay a price' because they are women in order to work in society and make their contributions to its advancement and progress. There are not as many as there should be, but there are still many brilliant, talented and committed female public figures in public life in the UK and to varying degrees all of whom face the same misogynistic abuse and harassment everyday. This must stop. This is not only unacceptable for a democratic culture and society but, also, is terribly harmful to the very concept of democracy and democratic space. But Ms Kuenssberg has not only refused to just take it and accept it, but, also, kept on her fight to assert her right to be here, to work as she wants to do without taking anyone's approval or permission or threat or abuse or harassment or intimidation. In this, life has been made a most unpleasant experience, to say the least, simply because in society there exist people, who simply live by masochism and misogyny directs them as to how low they would fall and this is getting towards the very bottom.

Yet, Ms Kuenssberg, kept her wit, her steel, her character, her integrity and her humanity as she resolutely stood her ground and kept at it and kept seeking to bring the very best, that she is and she can be out into her work, her profession, her career. But, stopping for a moment, to empathise the state of this human being, this human soul, this woman, imagine, waking up, getting ready to go work and realise you can not do that! You will have to have a bodyguard with you to keep you safe! And would you not think that we live in a ferocious jungle? This is the kind of misogyny, that has been seeking to dictate the social sphere and trying to strangle our democratic space and culture! Must we all wake up and take a stand so that no woman should face this monstrosity. Against all that, Ms Laura Kuenssberg, stands with her humanity, her strength, courage and conviction and she never falters to be exactly that, what she is and who she is: someone and something, that shall not be bent to redirect herself to anywhere and to anything, that she has not decided on her own free will.



Little Toby and His Mother

|| January 23: 2017: University of Sheffield News || ά. A ground breaking prototype ‘miniature’ MRI scanner for babies has been installed at The Jessop Wing Maternity Hospital in Sheffield. The scanner, which is one of only two in the world, is part of a two-year research project into the feasibility and benefits of scanning babies in the neonatal unit. Paul Griffiths, Professor of Radiology at the University of Sheffield and Honorary Consultant at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Martyn Paley, Professor of BioMedical Imaging, also, at the University of Sheffield, have been working on the concept and design of the scanner for 12 years.

The scanner is considerably smaller than a standard MRI scanner, meaning it can be situated within or close to a neonatal unit that would allow new-born babies to be scanned without having to be moved to another part of a building or even another hospital. This means scans can be performed more quickly and the risks and difficulties associated with moving vulnerable babies are dramatically reduced. The MRI images provide more detailed clinical information than a bedside ultrasound scan. Susie Thoms’ son Toby benefitted from the use of the scanner, as part of the research study, after being born six weeks premature by caesarean section and spending a week in neonatal intensive care.

Susie from Sheffield, said, “Not having to leave the department was a massive advantage, because having to transfer elsewhere at what is already a difficult time, would be a lot of extra stress for Toby, myself and the teams involved. You can get so much information from the MR images and see incredible detail.

Toby coped with the scan really well and the care he received was absolutely brilliant on the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Special Care Baby Unit. I didn't have any hesitation about taking part as I think doing this research, and possibly benefitting other parents and babies in the future, is very important. Toby is now back home, his feeding tube has recently been removed and he is doing really well."

Professor Griffiths, from the University of Sheffield’s Department of Infection, Immunity and Cardiovascular Disease, said, “Babies, particularly those with brain problems, are unstable, they can stop breathing or their blood pressure can change in an unpredictable way. If that happens it is useful to have neonatal staff who are used to that situation in such close proximity, which will improve safety.

The MR images themselves provide a more detailed image and can help offer a more accurate diagnosis. The motivation to keep going with this project is a belief that at the end we will have something that is better for babies with these types of brain problems.”

The project is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, GE Healthcare and the Wellcome Trust.

If the research is a success and the quality of the images, data and clinical benefits are proven, it is hoped the scanner will be granted the relevant approvals to enable it to be used on a routine clinical basis in years to come.
