BURNING THE LAST STRAW Focuses on Ethnic Cleansing and Oppression
by BWW News Desk - Nov 15, 2013

'The world in which we live is full of greed, capitalism, selfishness, inhumanity and betrayal. The powerful people combine materialistic interests with enmity and they condemn citizens of good will to everlasting misery,' author Lucien Nzeyimana says. Having witnessed patriots of good will striving to make a change only to see their heads cut off, and being a survivor inspired by his countrymen's legacy, Nzeyimana seeks to bring the many forgotten heroes to life, reliving their time and honoring their bravery in this new book. 'Burning the Last Straw' is the fictitious story of three warring ethnic groups driven by hunger for power and how one man's fight towards justice brings peace to the place. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Nov 15, 2013

Inter-cultural, inter-religious and international marriages are a good thing that strengthen human society and brings unity in the world. One needs to be patient and tolerant. Going through divorce and remarriage must not become a burden on the mind and must be an easy task not requiring psychologists and family and legal counselors.

He experiences all the trials and tribulations and conflicts of any marriage and lives the life of an ordinary house holder raising and educating and bringing up four children, unaffected by all of the above experiences and teaches in detail how anyone can do the same and live a joyful, peaceful, healthy and harmonious life without being a monk and a celibate.

BWW Reviews: Gamm's Fantastic GOOD PEOPLE Perfectly Examines America's Economic Crisis
by Robert Barossi - Nov 15, 2013

Recently, a friend mentioned his girlfriend's exciting new "big promotion and raise." Providing more details, he added that she would now be making close to thirty-five thousand per year. This could not help but make me wonder about the state of our country's current economic and employment crises. It is clear that a "new normal" has been established in the United States, where the vast majority scrape by, just surviving, mostly by working hourly-wage, low-paying jobs. Where once the dream was a comfortable, secure, middle-class or even upper-middle-class-life, that life no longer exists for many, if not most. It's been replaced by a much less secure or comfortable existence that fewer and fewer have the hope to climb out of. This predicament is perfectly brought to very real life by David Lindsay-Abaire's play Good People, playing at the Sandra Feinstein Gamm Theatre. (more...)

A retired shaman is contacted by the NSA to find out who's coercing politicians into passing bills that they have fought up until now. Dan Johnston: The NSA pulls Dan Johnston out of a comfortable, but boring, retirement to help them with a very unusual case where they believe politicians are being swayed through the internet and the use of totem animals. Dan has known for years that it's a strange world, but he's not exactly a technical geek, and has little knowledge of what it is the NSA wants Him to do. As a shaman, he's used to going to other worlds, but not a machine world. So, he does what he knows how to do, he enters through the people being affected. Jason Johnston: To make matters worse, his son, Jason, just returned from shaman training, which wasn't going well at all for Himsomething about a giant snake. So, he wants his dad to train Him. But this might not be the right time, since people are being shot at already. And, Dan's not sure how to work with the son he hasn't seen in a while. Jeremy Scroggins: The NSA agent in charge isn't easy to discourage. He's read Dan's file and knows what Dan did at one time for the CIA. You can't escape your past that easily. Besides, someone has to push the project forward, and Jeremy is the right man for the job.
