Why the international community, government and individual donors2 are not stepping up to help Pakistan like they stepped up with other disasters, we spoke3 with some analysts4 and aid workers, they cited several possible reasons, one thing they cited is the relatively5 low death toll6, you had about 1500 people killed, that could created the impression on people, maybe these floods aren't such a big deal, the contrast you have the Haiti earthquake in this year in January, more than 200,000 people killed there, and they collected a record $13 billion in donation.

 

 

Another term you hear often among the developping community is the donor1 fatigue7, It seems for the past several years, Pakistan is being on their seemingly endless campaign to raise the money for their hurting economies, the fight against Taliban. They had earthquake here in 2005, the refugee crisis last year. Perhaps, donors are tired of giving although the aid community says that is absolutely not a good excuse.

 

 

This jury just showed you that notwithstanding in fact that government threw everything but the kitchen sink at me, that on every count except one, every charge except one, they could not prove that I did anything wrong, that I did break, that I did break any laws.

 

 

I believe that they prove their case, beyond the reasonible doubt, but to others they didn't. It's the same evidence so, it's just matter of oppinion.

Everybody seemed to ask: Is it the ipod? uh, it's, from our study, it's specific. It's actually-we can not say what the cause of this increase from our data, of course, the world around us is getting louder, um, you can stand in a busy intersection8 in New York, for example, and gets sound levels that are dangerously high if you're exposed for prolonged period of time, and you can also get it from driving in convertible9 on the highway, um, and so, of course, teenages are using headphones, and are using portable music devices, and now, they have not been using previously10, and um, so that's certainly one possibility.
