Economic Impact of the Explosion in W...
Texas, USA
By Mais Istanbuli
19 Apr 2013

The explosion of the fertilizer plant in West, Texas, occurred at the edge of Highway 35, a vital link for the North American economy, where the heart of Texas is booming. The loss of this plant is a blow that threatens Texas’ economic model, which is based on low taxes and low binding legislation for companies.

L'explosion de l'usine d'engrais de West, au Texas, est survenue au bord d'une autoroute vitale pour l'économie nord-américaine, au cœur d'un Texas en plein boom. Un coup dur qui questionne le modèle économique texan fondé sur des impôts faibles et des législations peu contraignantes pour les entreprises.

Au lendemain de l'explosion, le Stockyards Café situé au bord de l'autoroute a fermé pour centraliser les donations de la grande distribution et organiser leur répartition auprès des victimes. Comme l'ensemble des salariés, qui "ne se verraient pas rester chez eux et ne rien faire", Janis participe à l'opération. Elle a été rejointe par sa fille et son gendre. "Tout le monde essaie d'aider", commentent ces derniers.
On the day after the blast, Stockyards Café, located on the side of the highway, closed its doors in order to gather the donations of large retailers and organize their distribution among the victims. Like the other employees who "could not see themselves stay at home doing nothing," Janis participates in the operation. Her daughter and son-in-law have also joined. "Everybody tries to help," they said.

The winter of 2012 was rough for the millions of displaced Syrians throughout the region. In this particular camp, thousands of Syrians trapped along the border awaiting refugee status in Turkey were flooded in their own filth by the heavy winter rains. Community organizers dug a ditch that has now become a little canyon to drain the sewage from the camp. The open river of waste weaves through the thousands of tents along the border.

The Forgotten of Nha Trang - World Ex...
Nha Trang,Vietnam
By Piero Pomponi World Focus
27 Jul 2012

Nha Trang - Vietnam - South East Asia- June 27th,2012- The power of the mind is infinite but not so deceitful as to drive the human being to suffer from the disturbances of its cognitive complexities on its own. Mental illnesses don’t just happen at the touch of a magical baton; they stem from a diverse fountain of anomalies and traumas spreading its viral and manic tentacles through different mental faculty mediums and in different forms of physical existence.
For the sufferer this represents a prison of self-hell, for reasoning is not capable to capture the very essence and the root cause of such torment. For our Universe, it further vindicates that health disparities through the lack of human rights, moral code, social and cultural injustices still prevail in the 21st century, where overall evolution for some still remains merely a word spelled with 9 letters and for others, the playground for continued obscure methods and treatments of torture towards victims of this dark yet un-chosen path of extreme abnormality.
There comes a time where honor and integrity for a just world need a mass calling, through the silent voices of all those that are not only living in the cell of their own self-inferno but also, are being prisoners of blacken and degrading action from other mortals defined as a disgrace to Humankind.
It takes courage, valor and unwavering will to document horrific affairs of Humanity; even if it means the potential loss of one’s life for the sake of protecting voiceless human suffering. In Nha Trang psychiatric hospital, a lager in most cases, mental illness patients, still leaving with chains in a total state of slavery and deprivation of freedom.

       “SAIGON EXPRESS – THE FORGOTTEN”        
         Directed by Piero Pomponi

I recognize Ho Chi Minh, the old Saigon from the massacred American war, at the first light of daybreak. I am in line at the airport barely gathered from the much anticipated journey, behind an undetermined number of American veterans that have returned for the first time, or periodically return to the sites where many of their combat companions have lost their own lives. Most of them bear the signs of a devastating conflict, stemmed from the smokes of napalm, paradises of opium and bygone aged tattoos. Everyone marches around with scoured shabby bearded faces, revealing glimpses of a sentiment of remorse of the conscience. A war the American people did not want but one that has left imprinted much regret, and for most, it has become a hellish living nightmare. Despite my slumber, I see the visa office around the far corner of the arrival hall, and succeed to note the fatigue but proud arrogance of the immigration officers engaged in the issuance of visas. The process takes less than a minute, yet for most Americans they await tens of minutes for the release of their signed tourist visa. Perhaps this is the revenge that it is consumed every day at the international airport of Ho Chi Minh, a vengeance that is drowsing, eerie, ironic, painless, done with sarcasm nevertheless, not with napalm.

The intense heat is already scorching in the first hours of sunshine, though I hastily triumph getting into the first available taxi to go straight towards Ga Saigon, to catch the first train bound directly for Nha Trang, 435 kilometers east of Saigon. All is written in Vietnamese, and a peasant that sees me overloaded and burdened with four pieces of luggage I am carrying, in broken English peppered with words that I clearly do not recognize, points towards the door where I can purchase a ticket Saigon – Nha Trang. A few minutes later, with the sweat showering and burning the first layer of my skin, I sprinted onto a carriage of the Saigon Express. There are pictures of the old Ho Chi Minh everywhere, and it seems as if its ghost is following me ever since I landed from a flight originating from Manila. But here “is” another story; few images relate the change of a nation and of the people that fought powerful America, but what Amerika with a k, in the pure disparaging sense. I think and re-think with all the adrenaline running frantically through my veins, of my journey to this suffering land where the wounds have never healed, what will my master path be again, or the story I have now been pursuing for more than six years.

My contact awaits and is aware that upon my arrival it will be difficult to manage my impatience; considering he is Vietnamese and with affection, me “a valuable enemy”, although not American, but an Italian by virtue of birth. It has been over six years I have been chasing the story which in itself is about history, but after studying in particularize all details, I decided “against all odds”; this in the end would be a pleasure trip for sightseeing. But, I undeniably want to enter the psychiatric hospital of Nha Trang, where men and women are living like wild animals, to define it in the realest term. I have been told chains are tied to the necks and feet of patients suffering from schizophrenic syndromes, but I cannot imagine in the new world this cruelty really existing in a mental hospital. I was also told men and women sleep lying on their own excrement and urine, but it is hard to conceive when I think of the constant presence of McDonalds, beaches for Russian tourists hunting for Europeans on holiday, but above all, I think of what I had and have read for years before reaching Saigon in the last few hours: the radical change in a country waving a red flag and yellow star opens to foreign corporations. But maybe it is a cliché, a legacy for hundreds of people landing on the tarmac of the international airports scattered across the vast Vietnamese territory.

Finally, Nha Trang is sitting under the sole of my shoes and after loading my luggage onto an old Minks motorcycle manufactured in Belarus, I was taken to a small motel where my contact had told me to stay. The sunlight is soft, and clouds crying rain drops on the horizon mixed with the smells of a thousand acres of industrial fumes, accompany me to the motel that in the end I find it to be one paid by the hour: a destination for deprived tourists and beautiful young Vietnamese girls, in search of an European or any other tourist, to indulge in a disturbing form, in a night filled with sex, drugs and rock and roll. I am already inside the room, with the only fan suspended from the ceiling above my head. I seem to have lived this scene before, recalling Martin Sheene in the film Apocalypse Now, and now that I remember it well, I really got to identify with him. I take a packet of Marlboro cigarettes out of one of my camera bags, which happens to be my last and have to save it, as I am totally in the dark as to where I can buy other cigarettes considering I have arrived during the night.

It is past midnight, the mood is somber and the pounding sounds from above and around do not help a body delirious from sleep withdrawal, and a mind unsettled and immersed in deep thought to rest. I am choking in the vapors of my own chain smoking and in the stifling high temperatures floating in the space, inebriated by the lack of air the solitary fan radiates from its cranky and almost still rotation. The dance of thought continues engrossed in its own intertwined world of unanswered questioning; I keep interrogating my innermost self, as to what classification of psychotropic drugs these mental patients could possibly be under to cause their caretakers to chain them like animals, and in surroundings that are so brutal and inhumane. The cross-examining keeps debating its usage as it could place in greater jeopardy their mental health and life within an impossible world and whereby scientifically there is also conflicting and lack of clear evidence of its efficacy. But, the real question I am having enormous trouble embracing is, why is there such a dark side to pharmacology; does it have anything to do with cognitive reframing for the sake of someone else’s gain? The night is intensely brilliant, but not even the bright stars stroking their autonomous universe can illuminate the heaviness prevailing in this moment of such mind inquisition. I do not remember falling asleep, but I faintly recall waking-up to the strong beating hums of a manic and energetic door knocking. Phuoc, my Vietnamese contact, has arrived to show me the far sights of Nha Trang.

The heat wave continues to enfold the land as I am savoring my second espresso coffee at a little family owned bakery, in contrast to what I have been tested with so far. My plan is to get closer to the native people and its land, the authenticity of their livelihood, and discover the wonders of the many off-the-beaten-track sites while contemplating the most strategic avenue on how to enter the psychiatric hospital. As the clock keeps ticking in my quest, the anxiety is slowly jetting off to the summit of its reality with the awareness of being potentially able to accomplish the pursuit of much anticipated story coverage. Amidst all the exploring during the two days that followed, the panic got so merciless I had to venture out of my own purposed adventure, in search of a source that could hypothetically supply me with a tablet of Xanax. And so, another mission has evolved in parallel. It is early morning on my fourth day in Nha Trang, and I indisputably need to find a doctor that can prescribe the medication to appease my human engine given the circumstance. In my own despondency I ask around if I can be taken to the psychiatric hospital with the knowledge such platform usually carries this type of anti-anxiety medicine. Eventually, I get hold of a doctor prepared to listen, and upon explaining the drug had been prescribed in 1994 after covering the war in Rwanda, he agreed to lead the way to the dispensary adjacent to the psychiatric hospital.

Every drop of blood begins to pulsate at the thought the conquering of my mission is just minutes away; the terror surmounting the eight kilometer ride on the way to the psychiatric hospital is indescribable; the adrenaline pumping ten thousand beats per minute, feels I am going to fly and disperse in a million fragments of life, such is the strength of my inner trepidation. Mental flashes race back and forth in preparation to this potential story exposure. It is important I stay focused at the same time all this other craziness is prevailing within the fortress of my human system. As I dismount from the old relic motorbike, the doctor shows me the way towards the dispensary where another meeting of minds takes place. A second doctor is introduced and upon explaining once again the story of my being prescribed Xanax, he told me he had another pill that in his opinion is far more effective. In accepting with an affirmation, he stood up and asked everyone to follow to the place where he would get the suggested medication. To my amazement, I am now being led towards the entrance of the psychiatric hospital which is bolted with a thick chain and lock. I am inside following the doctors towards an office where presumably this wonder medicine is supposed to be kept. I have only one thought in my mind, but cannot avoid noticing the commotion displayed in the courtyard en-route. As I am offered the miracle pill, I take it without even thinking knowing any hint of hesitation can lift doubt as to what my real intent was in the first place.

As I am left to tour the hospital with Phuoc free from anyone’s suspicion, I stand in awe with the image that presents before my eyes and inwardly wonder who the mentally disturbed sufferers really are; the caretakers or the inmates made prisoners of their own mental health. On second thought my question is how a native could possibly know the latest medical advancements in mental health treatment, to instigate such turmoil within the human minds of these captive patients. As I begin to record the obscurity of this forgotten world, the sounds of despair echoing through the corridors as I pace, with bouts of raging moans interrupting the ongoing cries of desperation, are but a whisper of hell of all there is to document. Men and women of all ages are chained in their cells like animals on exhibition; a gruesome playground for the observer comprised of caretakers, janitors and other medical hierarchy. The lack of warmth wrapping their naked bodies, the cold world of cement floor setting, in many occasions garnished with excrement and urine, adorned with iron framed windows and walls stained with dried blood frescos, serve as a daily reminder of their surroundings, without reverence being considered as the bear minimum deemed appropriate towards the wellbeing of the human race. With the exception of a small group of volunteers which have not been filmed for the welfare of their own safety, it appears moral responsibility has become but a word disturbed in the world within, where undetermined interests other than the protection of Humanity may have taken a turn in precedence. In spite of the shocking images and chants stemming from pure misery and despair, I spend seven hours in observation with the last two dedicated to recording the story that had been haunting me for more than six years. The cries continue in the far distance of my hearing senses and I suddenly feel in my gut it is time to leave. I hurry to the bathroom to ensure the safekeeping of my memory card from the camera before riding back to the motel to get my luggage and catching the first available train back to Ho Chi Minh.

The ride back is absorbed in deep thought with the pendulum of my reasoning swaying back and forth. I stop by the motel to collect my luggage and exit as fast as I can. I feel mentally drained and physically exhausted as I inhale the remains of a war engraved and spread in different forms. I get to the train station to purchase the ticket Nha Trang - Ho Chi Minh and it is revealed the next train will depart in four hours. As I sit in waiting, anxiety restrains my continued inner reflection every time a group of policemen enters the station believing they are looking for me. By the time I boarded the train I am comforted trusting this paranoia of thought will soon be forgotten. Twenty minutes into the train ride I am approached by someone asking who I am; I responded by affirming I am a tourist. After a rapid pause for contemplation he retorted by stating I am not a tourist but a well-known photographer, and left without further announcement. My seat is assigned by the window, and as I try to engage in the palette of colors the countryside offers in the far distance, the visual review keeps being interrupted by the imagery of hopelessness and dejection rolling in the film projector of my conscious mind. I gently place my head on the window, close my eyes and let the motion of the train rock me into a world of new hopes and possibilities, so I believed. The train horn announces the eminent arrival - 5 minutes to Ho Chi Minh City. I fold my thoughts for just a brief moment before gathering my entire luggage ahead of my exodus.

I see the taxi line from afar and advance my footsteps to escape the noise resonating from the crowds at the station and in haste to get into the first vacant taxi to the hotel. In my blurred recollection from a sudden attack by seven men of short but stocky build, two taxi drivers watched in absolute silence and horror the events that proceeded in the rounds of beatings and mugging. With blood overflowing from the left eye dripping onto my shirt, the body battered and bruised from all the lashing and two cameras ripped from the pockets of my trousers along with other personal documentation, I managed to escape this unexpected brutality and while one of the taxi drivers piloted in terror the route towards the hotel, I called my sister in Rome to organize with urgency a ticket on the first flight back home. Upon arrival and as I am getting out of the car after paying the fare ride, I am approached by two other men and before I know it the second round of thrashings targeting both sides of my ribcage followed with a vengeance, before stripping the cell phone hanging on my neck and the one used for the filming in the psychiatric hospital. Prudently, I had downloaded the entire reporting during the train ride from Nha Trang to Ho Chi Minh. Dripping in blood and with some difficulty in breathing, I enter the hotel lobby and simultaneously receive a call which is my sister advising all is set to leave Ho Chi Minh immediately. Among all the physical pain, the bare minimum left on my body stained with blood, remnants of both assaults, I remember waking up upon touched down at Fiumicino International Airport in Rome.

Will I ever be allowed back in Vietnam? Time will be the champion of justice…

Nha Trang - Vietnam - South East Asia- June 27th,2012- The power of the mind is infinite but not so deceitful as to drive the human being to suffer from the disturbances of its cognitive complexities on its own. Mental illnesses don’t just happen at the touch of a magical baton; they stem from a diverse fountain of anomalies and traumas spreading its viral and manic tentacles through different mental faculty mediums and in different forms of physical existence.
For the sufferer this represents a prison of self-hell, for reasoning is not capable to capture the very essence and the root cause of such torment. For our Universe, it further vindicates that health disparities through the lack of human rights, moral code, social and cultural injustices still prevail in the 21st century, where overall evolution for some still remains merely a word spelled with 9 letters and for others, the playground for continued obscure methods and treatments of torture towards victims of this dark yet un-chosen path of extreme abnormality.
