But do humans develop as fast as their inventions? Which effects does the globalization have on the understanding of the individual and humanity? We have to choose between lots of possibilities - thanks to technology and research, but: What should we do now? How should we handle the potential which is available for us? My book &bdquo;Global Humanism &ndash; possibilities and risks of a new humanistic model&ldquo; appeared in 2010 and discusses the possibilities and risks of a new, ethical model, a Global Humanism, which puts the individual as a global being in the centre of attention.</p> <p class="Default">Humanism is a big idea which everyday life puts to the test. I have recently returned from travels all around the world and to keep your humanistic attitude while travelling is a special challenge. It also showed me the necessity of a global ethical concept, which can apply in a lot of human environments. Nevertheless, the important question to be discussed remains: What can an ethical model like the Global Humanism really perfom? This question caught my interest as a scholar.</p> <p class="Default">DOI: <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9241">http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9241</a></p> <p class="Default">Bodhi Vol.6 2013: 17-20</p> Lisz Hirn ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2013-12-03 2013-12-03 6 17 20 10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9241 Current Status of Health Reporting in Nepali Press https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/BOHDI/article/view/9242 <p class="Default">DOI: <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9242">http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9242</a> &nbsp;</p> <p class="Default">Bodhi Vol.6 2013: 21-35</p> Sabita Tuladhar Khem Raj Shresta Nimesh Regmi Ashoke Shrestha Bharat Ban ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2013-12-03 2013-12-03 6 21 35 10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9242 Towards Making a Green City: A Case Study of Ilam Municipality https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/BOHDI/article/view/9244 <p class="Default">This article reports a brief household survey done in every ward of Ilam municipality about the statuses of various prerequisites of a green city. The surveyer found out that the general household has only little knowledge about the concept of a green city. Similarly, chemical fertilizer was least used, which is a good sign. Many households still have traditional cooking stove which emits more smokes. Almost all households surveyed had a well-equipped sanitational facility. Many households complained that they were not receiving adequate drinking water. Even in the irrigation part, there were not enough irrigation sources</p> <p class="Default">DOI: <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9244">http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9244</a></p> <p class="Default">Bodhi Vol.6 2013: 36-49</p> Pratik Poudel Shao Ying Hong ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2013-12-03 2013-12-03 6 36 49 10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9244 Portrayal of Women in Major World Religions https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/BOHDI/article/view/9245 <p class="Default">DOI: <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9245">http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9245</a> &nbsp;</p> <p class="Default">Bodhi Vol.6 2013: 50-64</p> Eak Prasad Duwadi ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2013-12-03 2013-12-03 6 50 64 10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9245 Nepalese Journalists’ Democracy Building Roles and News Coverage Practices https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/BOHDI/article/view/9246 <p class="Default">DOI: <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9246">http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9246</a></p> <p class="Default">Bodhi Vol.6 2013: 65-108</p> Sudarshan Prasad Dahal ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2013-12-03 2013-12-03 6 65 108 10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9246 The Liminality of Contemporary Culture https://www.nepjol.info/index.php/BOHDI/article/view/9247 <p class="Default">DOI: <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9247">http://dx.doi.org/10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9247</a></p> <p class="Default">Bodhi Vol.6 2013: 109-119</p> Mahesh Sharma ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2013-12-03 2013-12-03 6 109 119 10.3126/bodhi.v6i0.9247
