On International Tiger Day, a mind-boggling statistic.

While only 3,000 wild tigers exist today, an estimated 5,000 are kept captive as pets in U.S. backyards. 
More tigers are kept as pets in the U.S. than roam free in the wild, campaigners say, as they call for tough new laws on International Tiger Day.

Sumasri is one of many Asian domestic workers who has suffered unspeakable abuse.

Her back and thighs are heavily scarred from the boiling water she said her male employer in Kuala Lumpur threw on her.

China is second to the United States in having the most number of billionaires in the world. 

But in China, the ultra rich has a far more disproportionate voice in government.

They only have the voice to support the CCP party no voice at all to say no to the party. They are all yes men just like parasites living off the system.
