cleansing campaign against the Muslim Rohingya minority speaking on the same day that the country’s military released the results of an internal inquiry clearing itself of all atrocities At a summit attended by Myanmar’s de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi UN Secretary-General António Guterres warned that the humanitarian crisis spawned by the country could sow the seeds of regional instability and radicalization The ongoing displacement of hundreds of thousands of refugees from Myanmar is a "worrying escalation in a protracted tragedy" he said in an address to leaders on the sidelines of the

sweeping military crackdown was launched in response to Aug 25 attacks by Rohingya militants UN officials have documented horrific accounts of rape arson and murder and in a report issued last month said the campaign is clearly aimed at expelling the long-persecuted minority and preventing their return UNICEF says around 60% of the newly displaced refugees are children Suu Kyi and Guterres were seated next to each other at a Gala dinner during the ASEAN summit an event which otherwise largely skirted the contentious issue The pair also met to discuss the need for the Rohingya refugees to be guaranteed a safe return Guterres’s office said Suu Kyi has disappointed her supporters in the West by failing to condemn the military abuses or to speak up about the decades-long plight of the stateless Rohingya minority Instead she has repeatedly pledged to “stand firm” with the military even as documented accusations of crimes against humanity mount and evidence of the army’s scorched earth campaign becomes visible from satellite images On Monday Myanmar’s military called the Tatmadaw exonerated itself from any wrongdoing concluding an internal inquiry with the claim that not a

don’t like it you can take your business elsewhere “When we negotiate with suppliers we are doing so on behalf of customers” Amazon wrote in a forum post “Negotiating for acceptable terms is an essential business practice that is critical to keeping service and value high for customers in the medium and long term” Amazon didn’t get into details on the disagreement which has to do with the

meaning when we attach it to them with our thoughts and beliefs This calls into question what is real As a scientist I firmly believe that atoms and molecules are real (even if mostly empty space) and exist independently of our minds On the other hand I have witnessed firsthand how distressed I become when I experience anger or jealousy or insult all emotional states manufactured by my own mind The mind is certainly its own cosmos As Milton wrote in Paradise Lost "It [the mind] can make a heaven of hell or a hell of heaven" In our constant search for meaning in this baffling and temporary

in our conceptions of external reality We try to connect We try to find truth We dream and we hope And underneath all of these strivings we are haunted by the suspicion that what we see and understand
