Ifrane, The Switzerland of Morocco

If the name Morocco conjures up images of a place with narrow, maze like streets lined with old earth-colored buildings, you are not alone. Ifrane, however, is unlike any other town in Morocco. Located at an altitude of 5,460 feet above sea level in the Middle Atlas region, this small hill town has a Swiss alpine feel to it. With neat red-roofed houses, blooming flower beds, lake-studded parks and snowbound winters, this remarkable European styled town is often referred to as “Morocco’s Switzerland.” The lush greenery, cedar forests, and pastureland that comes to life in spring and winter is a sharp contrast to the hot and dry climate that surrounds it. Because of its accessibility, Ifrane serves as the winter playground for the wealthy Berbers from drier cites like Fez, Meknes, and Marrakech, who flock here to experience European winter.

New film: “The Homesman”

The incredible journey
—TOMMY LEE JONES’S tremendous new film, “The Homesman”, is a boldly unusual western, in that the villain cannot be defeated 141660364382344in a gunfight at high noon. The villain, if there is one, is the land itself: the flat, dry, dusty terrain of Nebraska in the mid-1800s, where the winds are biting, disease is rife, and only a few farmers are stubborn enough to carve out an existence. This focus on the harsh landscape is one of the two aspects that make Mr Jones’s film so distinctive. The other is its focus on the women in that landscape. While it might be going too far to call “The Homesman” a feminist western, it comes as close as this historically macho genre ever has.
—Despite the film’s ironic title, the lead character is in fact female. Running a farm singlehandedly, the industrious Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank) is brimming with optimism, but even she is battered by the loneliness of frontier life. It’s hardly credible that Cuddy—who has the straight teeth, clear skin and glossy hair of a 21st-century movie star—would be deemed as “plain as an old tin pail”, or that she wouldn’t be able to persuade anyone to marry her. On the other hand, her choice of potential partners is severely limited, given that the nearest town comprises half a dozen houses. Her desire for a husband is matched only by her desire for a musical instrument: touchingly, she makes do with a cloth with a piano keyboard embroidered on it.

The Trans-Amazonian Highway: An Ecological Disaster

The Trans-Amazonian highway is a 5,000 kilometre road which cuts across the heart of the Amazon forest, spanning Brazil from the coastal city of João Pessoa in the northeast to the border with Peru. It was one of the most ambitious resettlement and economic development programs ever devised, and one of the greatest failures.
—The project developed in the 1970s after General Medici, military ruler of Brazil, visited the impoverished north-east of the country, which at that time was suffering under one of its periodic droughts. What he saw shocked and upset the General deeply. Land reform, the obvious solution to the peasants’ plight, was out of the question because the military who ruled the country relied too much on the support of landowners, and there was no way to convince those wealthy landowners to part with even the smallest fraction of their lands to the rural poor. General Medici, instead, decided to relocate the poor.

Amazing Black and White Pictures of Scenes from the Dust Bowl during the 1930s

The Dust Bowl, also known as the Dirty Thirties, was a period of severe dust storms that greatly damaged the ecology and agriculture of the US and Canadian prairies during the 1930s; severe drought and a failure to apply dryland farming methods to prevent wind erosion caused the phenomenon. The photography of Dorothea Lange is as closely associated with American farmers’ struggle against drought and dust in the Depression era. The photographs show the devastation that drove the Dust Bowl refugees to leave their homes and migrate to California. They also depict the lives of these families on the road west.
