Free Access to Sage Journals – Education, Politics, Peace, etc.

Sage is offering FREE temporary access to a number of journals. (Otherwise, articles can be $15-$25 each.) Two categories caught my eye recently: Education (51 journals) and Political Science, International Relations and Public Administration, which includes: Journal of Peace Research, Cooperation and Conflict, International Relations, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and Journal of Developing Societies which all have some very relevant articles for our current situation.)

Both offers run through April.

To sign up, click here then choose the category of your interest (there are many, especially medical journals).

PS – I’ve been signed up with sage for years; there’s no catch.

More demonstrations in Downtown Nairobi

Yes there is an agreement, and yes there is still peace (more on that later.) But street vendors are not so happy. Before the election, officials looked the other way while street vendors took over the downtown streets. (Every vote counts.) Now that things are “back to normal” they are being restricted to a special market built just for them. From what I hear the big issue is the amount they are being charged to set up stalls. ($2-3 a day is a lot to pay on the thin profit margins they have.) 

So while the teargas is flying . . . no one here is really that worried. These are “normal” protests, not life-threatening-the-country-is-on-the-brink type demonstrations. What a difference a week with a peace agreement can make!!
