Anonymous, (this is the problem I have with posters who chose to be Anonymous, there is no way to address it to a particular one if there is more than one) I hope you know which one I'm talking to.
I for myself beleave that women should be given more chance for education especially in rural PNG
This, and something else you said about women being the backbone of many families, especially in rural areas needs to be brought to the attention of our educators. An improvement in basic literacy and home-making skills of these women, would be relatively inexpensive and would pay great dividends in terms of their productivity. Productivity in this case not only referring to goods produced for sale, but in terms of better nutrition for their families, reduced family sizes etc... Rural education is essential if we are to stem the rural-urban drift. We may discuss this in greater length later.
Advocate, concerning your comment on us providing a conducive environment to their progress, I think this can be achieved to an extent through education, rural practical education which I mentioned earlier to Anonymous.
Inmate, Bro, it's not that I disbelieve you, it's just that we should be cautious in our enthusiasm about those cures which have not been verified through proper medical tests. I don't doubt the power of non-conventional medicine in curing some illnesses, but we should be careful not to place too much faith on cures that may not work in all instances. I would still appreciate it if you could email me the details, here's my email: MangiNating@hotmail.com
Tingting, what's your take on the issue. Are you for or against the legalization of prostitution?
