Global for Me is pleased to introduce correspondent, Laura Sheeter who has pitched the following story…

“New York’s newest coolest ‘park’ the High Line, a reclaimed elevated railway line, is becoming notorious as a popular hang-out for voyeurs,” said Sheeter. “They watch people in the hotel that straddles the park and end up getting all sorts of things! Apparently there’s something of an amateur burlesque cult developing!”

Give us Your Feedback: Corporate funding of religious right wing in US

21/09/2009

Welcome back bloggers!

We recently received astory idea from a Global for me reader, about the use of right wing religious-political groups to lobby for corporations.

Does this story arouse your suspicions? Here was the proposal from our reader:

Allegedly, corporations are using right wing religious-political groups as fronts to fight the introduction of regulations that will hinder their ability to profit from practices that are detrimental to the interests of the majority of society. An alleged example,Cornwall Alliance supposedly uses religion to fight the overwhelming scienctific evidence of global warming, which protects banks, real estate developers, etc. who are profiting from cutting down rainforests to build $1M energy pig “tar paper shacks” on US farmland.

Do you want aGlobal for Me journalist to investigate this story? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.

Thanks for your support,

[Story Ticker] September 16 update

Hi, Global for me followers!

There are two new stories up on the GFM ticker- we’ve been following two intriguing trials.

The murder of Meredith Kercher.

Over in Italy we have the reopening of trial of Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, which has been making the headlines but here at GFM we are wondering if she is really getting a fair trial or if the media’s fascination with portraying her as the femme-fatale “Foxy-Knoxy” has biased the case. Read the page.

Alberto Fujimori.

Meanwhile over in Peru a scandalous case involving corruption at the highest echelons of power. Former Peruvian President, Alberto Fujimori, who is already serving a 25 year sentence for alleged human rights abuses in his war on drugs and embezzlement of state money- is due to take to the stand again. Over in Peru, suggests that the majority of the population feel he warrants a pardon- can this happen? Fujimori is adamant that the charges are politically motivated. Read here– if you want to find out more.

Help get these stories told and many more at Global For Me.
