I worked as a laboratory technician in a health center(X) in Douala-Cameroon,where I was the head of the Biochemistry lab. department for close to two years.One monday afternoon,I was taken aside by the manager(Supervisor) of the clinic and advised me that rumours had circulated in regards to my sexuality.I was further advised that if any basis was found for the rumours,it would affect the possibility for me to continue heading the Biochemistry department.And just after about a week later,the same manager called me up agian and instructed me to limit my duties at the level of sample analyses and not to direct the collection of samples from patients any more.From thence I had to be very careful about anything I said,making sure that I never used the word "we" when describing any activity or even in my life.I was forced to be constantly on my own guard.In light of this and the homophobic harrassement which I started experiencing from my co-workers,I had no other option but to abandon my job to move abroad in september 2007.This experience of discrimination continues to affect me till today.We shall be very happy if the Americian and European NGOs can re-inforce the activities of the local underground NGOs in cameroon address LGBT Issues.Many LGBTI in cameroon are dying in closet just for being who they are by nature.

The biggest prelbom of all forms of birth control is that it interferes with nature,we are all meant to reproduce ourselves to secure the future of the human species without resorting to other radical methods of keeping the balance.Charlatans & assorted con-artists banging on about plasic carrier bags destroying the planet are the same NUTTERS who will want to bump off the elderly & non productive members of our society.Young girls having babies are looked upon as irresponsible when they should be looked upon as saviours of the Human Race.

-2-MalcolmYes, a good point. I do have some data on Championship which I'll report on in due<a href="http://nihkflhkw.com"> csroue</a>.-3-JosI did not include this data, but for the top 5 UEFA leagues, only France has fewer goals scored by nationals than is implied by the overall percentage of foreign players (assuming that it would be proportional.) This implies to me that Germany, England, Italy and Spain are the only countries who can retain an excess of national talent, whereas France is a net contributor of talent to other leagues.I am sure that money explains a lot of this, but there also must be room for politics (N Korea) and culture.

Re: France, doesn't it have a salary cap, <a href="http://atmgonpw.com">reluntisg</a> in its best players moving abroad routinely?I believe Russia had 100% of its European Championship squad playing in its domestic league. That changed when good performances led to Arshavin and a couple of others becoming hot properties. And Spurs bought Pavlyuchenko for some reason.And should England underperform again I imagine there will be some blame cast on this phenomenon, with people suggesting that you can't win at the top level unless you have players with experience in Italy and/or Spain.

An auto insurance QuotesChimp, whether in a fault or no-fault state, is actually a mixture of several distinct coverages tied up in one bundle. Some of these coverages shield some and 3rd parties shield the insured directly. Some of the coverages are some elective and required. The differing coverages added together to come up with the whole premium price and are priced individually.
