After Class Question With Sikander And Jahanzaib. English is a West Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a global lingua franca. It is spoken as a first language by the majority populations of several sovereign states, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand and a number of Caribbean nations; moreover, it is an Official Language of almost 60 sovereign states. It is the third-most-common native language in the world, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. It is widely learned as a second language and is an Official Language of the European Union, many Commonwealth countries and the United Nations, as well as in many world organisations. English arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and what is now southeast Scotland. Following the extensive influence of England, Great Britain, and the United Kingdom from the 17th to mid-20th centuries through the British Empire, it has been widely propagated around the world. Throu ...
Good day everyone. It's been a while so there's a lot of news to get through. We begin with British Prime Minister David Cameron, who said the UK will take "whatever steps are necessary" to stay safe after ISIS posted a video showing the beheading of British aid worker David Haines. Cameron said of ISIS: "they are not Muslims, they are monsters." President Obama has also issued a stance of continued aerial attacks on the group in both Iraq and Syria, along with ground troops only for the soul purpose of strategy and training, not combat. Also, several several Arab countries have agreed to carry out airstrikes against ISIS militants. Other countries who have signed on include Australia, Great Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Italy, Poland, Denmark, Albania, Croatia, New Zealand, Romania, South Korea, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Qatar, Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan. Ray Rice is expected to appeal his indefinite suspension, which was implemented after video surfaced of him knocking out ...
Are we about to see the disintegration of most of the traditions we were brought up with,will our influence in the world be reduced to the level of Italy or Greece.If the separation goes ahead & almost half of these island becomes a foreign country how can we go on as Great Britain,Little Britain would be more appropriate.One source of our influence is the enormous respects for Queen Elizabeth II felt in many parts of the world,most of this isn't for the British Crown itself but for the person who presently wears it.It already probable that Australia,New Zealand & Canada will declare themselves Republics at the end of her reign & among yesterday's comments we learned that the aim of the SNP is to do the same.Its already been decided apparently that after the Queen the position of Head of The Commonwealth will be rotated among the heads of state within the Commonwealth.If Wales eventually goes the way Scotland looks like going a future Charles lll or William V may find themselves reigning over a smaller k ...

submitted by Dean Cox. Australia became a Nation on 1st February, 1901. 13years and 7months later Great Britain declared war on Germany in what was to be referred to as 'The Great War', 'The war to end all wars' and was thought that, 'It will all be over by Christmas.' World War I was to last for 5 years and would destroy a generation of men, worldwide. During this time the term ANZAC became fact, baptised in fire and becoming a legend on the beaches of Gallipoli, in Turkey; this landing was to initiate an advance on the Turkish capital, Constantinople (now Istanbul). ANZAC, The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps became an entity prior to the Gallipoli landings and the term still exists; the 4th Battalion RAR and a NZ Infantry Company became the ANZAC Battalion, during the Vietnam War. The ANZAC ULTRA 2015 is being conducted to remember that fateful time on 25th April, 1915 when the ANZACS stormed ashore against unknown numbers of Turkish and German forces. LEST WE FORGET! The story continues soon.

The Cold War made a lot of money for the military/security complex for four decades dating from Churchill’s March 5, 1946 speech in Fulton, Missouri declaring a Soviet “Iron Curtain” until Reagan and Gorbachev ended the Cold War in the late 1980s. During the Cold War Americans heard endlessly about “the Captive Nations.” The Captive Nations were the Baltics and the Soviet bloc, usually summarized as “Eastern Europe.” These nations were captive because their foreign policies were dictated by Moscow, just as these same Captive Nations, plus the UK, Western Europe, Canada, Mexico, Columbia, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, Georgia, and Ukraine, have their foreign policies dictated today by Washington. Washington intends to expand the Captive Nations to include Azerbaijan, former constituent parts of Soviet Central Asia, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia. During the Cold War Americans thought of Western Europe and Great Britain as independent sovereign countrie ...

Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) Having been directed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to put together an alliance to contain any communist aggression in the free territories of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, or Southeast Asia in general, Secretary of State John Foster Dulles forges an agreement establishing a military alliance that becomes the Southeast Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO). Signatories, including France, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Pakistan, Thailand, and the United States, pledged themselves to "act to meet the common danger" in the event of aggression against any signatory state. A separate protocol to SEATO designated Laos, Cambodia, and "the free territory under the jurisdiction of the State of Vietnam [South Vietnam]" as also being areas subject to the provisions of the treaty. The language of the treaty did not go as far as the absolute mutual defense commitments and force structure of the NATO alliance, instead providing only for consultations in c ...

The Feast of Saint Patrick otherwise known as Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated on the 17th March of every year around the globe. The cultural and religious holiday is celebrated in countries including New Zealand, Great Britain, Japan and Australia and the reason for its worldwide successful celebrations is due to Irish migration (because of the industrial revolution) in the 19th and even 20th century. The day is named after Saint Patrick , most commonly recognised as the patron saint of Ireland. Typically for Christians, the day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. However, in more modern times it has become more of a party theme/celebration on behalf of the Irish culture. Here are some of the usual traditions and celebrations that happen on the day of Saint Patrick: Bars/Parades – One of the most enjoyable celebrations for many on Saint Patrick’s Day is going to a Parade. There are parades across the world including one in London’s Trafalgar Square. The day kic ...

Gallipoli (2005) Trailer An epic reconstruction of the battle that changed nations forever: a film of spectacular visual sweep and great emotional power. It all began as a demonstration of strength against the Ottoman Empire by Great Britain and her allies. It became one of the largest landing operations in history and one of the bloodiest and most controversial battles of the First World War. The campaign affected Turkey, Australia and New Zealand profoundly. For Australia and New Zealand, it became their first major trial on the world stage a baptism of fire. For the Turks, it was a crucial step on the path towards a new country and a new national identity. To capture the spirit of the campaign and the experience of the soldiers, GALLIPOLI tells the story simultaneously from the perspective of all sides involved, and sets out to capture the human dimension within the general structure of the battle. The war itself is the only enemy in this film. The campaign is told through the diaries and letters of 2 ...

In 1972 the Values Party of New Zealand was established and then in 1973 the Ecology Party of Great Britain. Recognition of this developing movement took a leap forward when the German Green Party got a contingent elected to parliament in 1983. Author Charlene Spretnak went over to Germany in late 1983 to learn about and write about the phenomenon. Her b ...

Australia Listeni/əˈstreɪljə, ɒ-, -iə/,[10][11] officially the Commonwealth of Australia,[12] is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area. Neighbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. For at least 40,000 years[13] before the first British settlement in the late 18th century,[14][15] Australia was inhabited by Indigenous Australians,[16] who spoke languages grouped into roughly 250 language groups.[17][18] After the discovery of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-g ...
The Year That Was 2013 A behind the scenes review of the false flags, assassinations, and whistleblowers the establishment hopes you have forgotten… ~ Dr. Kazi Kearse PsyD., author of “Awakening: The Rise of Truth Begins ( www.kazikearse.com ) Edward Snowden… NSA WHISTLEBLOWER From Wikipedia: The ongoing publication of Snowden's NSA leaks have revealed previously unknown details of a global surveillance apparatus run by the United States' NSA in close cooperation with its Five Eyes partners: Australia (ASD), Great Britain (GCHQ), Canada (CSEC), and New Zealand (SIS), as well as the security agencies of "most other Western countries", according to Der Spiegel. The Guardian's editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger said in November 2013 that only one percent of the documents had been published.

The ITU have announced the selection of the Technical Officials for the Commonwealth Games and we are delighted that nine officials from the Oceania region have been selected to be part of the TO team in Glasgow. Congratulations to Jacqui Kenny, Murray Hilder, Frank Stapleton and Gai Webster from Australia, Juliet Fahey, Shanelle Barrett, Pete Weaver and Ross Capill from New Zealand and Stephen Damian from Papua New Guinea. Excluding the officials from Great Britain only 25 officials have been selected from other Commonwealth countries and to have nine of these selected from Oceania is a reflection of the strength of the Technical Programmes conducted in our region. As well as the two individual races the mixed team relay will feature for the first time at a major games event so the technical team will have a busy few days. We are sure that all of the selected officials will do a fantastic job."

The two expeditions to the Cook Islands and annexation, New Zealand notes (1) - 1897-1901, Manuscript MSX-4950, Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington ...this time for the definite purpose of annexation. According to the L.M.S. reports, the Māoris did not even know that the British authorities had agreed to annex the Cook Islands until the day H.M.S. Mildura arrived, although rumours from an undisclosed source preceded the ship’s arrival by two or three days.

Billy Slater has tipped Johnathan Thurston to win the 2013 Golden Boot award following another magnificent performance from the Australia playmaker in the Rugby League World Cup final. Thurston was named man of the match and man of the series following the Kangaroos' 34-2 win over New Zealand on Saturday at Old Trafford with his six goals taking him past *** Cronin's record of 309 points in internationals. In a performance lauded by foamer Great Britain international Johnathan Davies as one of the most complete he'd ever seen, the Kangaroos were simply too good for the Kiwis, with Thurston the dominant figure throughout for Tim Sheens' side. "He is a great player and I'm very fortunate to play with him at State of Origin level as well as for Australia," Slater said. "He's picked up our players player award and picked up the player of the series and thoroughly deserves it. "I wouldn't be surprised if he picked up the Golden Boot either. He's a tremendous player. He's not a super fast guy, he's not a super ...

A Research Essay by a New Zealander……. Did New Zealand have a Chinatown, or did exclusionary measures such as the poll tax preclude such a development? Discuss with reference to the nature of the Chinese community and Chinese identities in New Zealand before 1948. This was the question put before Kathryn Street, a student at Victoria University, Wellington, who came to the Tung Jung Association for help. This is her essay on the subject: “The Lost Chinaman”: Perseverance and Survival in Early 20th Century New Zealand On the day of King George V’s coronation at Westminster Abbey, a Chinese storekeeper and his nephew went hunting pigeons in the snow-covered forests of the Central North Island. Forty year old Chan Yin and twenty-two year old Tom-my Chan worked in Ohakune, running a store and minding a billiards saloon.

GALAXY FOUR: Of the 4 episodes that comprise this third season story, episodes 1, 2, and 4 remain missing – only episode 3 is held in the BBC archives. Unlike the three stories I have already looked at (Marco Polo, The Reign of Terror, and The Crusade), stories from the third season were much less widely distributed. In fact, Galaxy Four only aired in 7 countries/territories: Australia, Barbados, Great Britain, New Zealand, Sierra Leone, Singapore, and Zambia. Its first episode was broadcast in Great Britain on September 11, 1965, and the final known broadcast of the story started in Singapore on October 9, 1972. At least 5 prints are known to have been made of Galaxy Four for international distribution. With the general understanding that all the original footage and prints held by the BBC in England were destroyed during the “junking” of the mid ‘70s, that just leaves these 5 prints that were sent to foreign countries or territories. So what happened to them? The first print was sent to Aust ...
BoK Tutors November 8, 2013 English is the most spoken language in the world overall, and following Mandarin Chinese(# 1) and Spanish(it is the third most-spoken language by native-born people who live in England, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, the United States and some Caribbean islands. Germanic settlers (Anglo-Saxons) brought various dialects to the eastern coast of Great Britain in the 5th century A.D. Latin added many root words to English, the Viking invaders added even more in the 9th and 10th centuries, and the Norman Conquest in the 11th century brought the influence of Norman French and the Romance languages to what evolved into Middle English. The 15th century saw what is called the Great Vowel Shift in the southern part of England, and that is when Modern English began to develop. The Oxford English Dictionary lists over 250,000 English words. When you consider that all of them are built from a mere 26 letters, including five vowels (Yes, we know…”and sometimes “y”), it is amazing to ...
Superstar Goalie Grace Harrison fills us in on the Junior Women's success in Anaheim this July: The New Zealand Junior Women team played in the first ever Junior Women FIRS competition falling short in their games against Canada, United States of America, and Australia by one point in each; the team coming up with what was a disappointing fifth. However, they took out of the experience many positives, showing great structure and potential, which they will look to utilize in France 2014, where a New Zealand Junior Women team will compete against countries such as USA, Australia, Great Britain, Finland, Canada, Colombia, and Spain. The team also competed in American Athletic Union Junior Olympics, immediately following the FIRS tournament. Seeking some redemption for the narrow losses in their FIRS games, the team competed much better, showing what they were really capable of, the kiwi's stealing a gold medal beating team USA 2-1 just six hours after defeating Australia 1-0 in a playoff game, early that mor ...
Obama Orders Review of U.S. Spying European leaders are mad and President Obama knows it. After NSA leaker Edward Snowden broke the news that the U.S. is keeping tabs on leaders of European countries, even those who are U.S. allies, President Obama ordered a review of who we’re snooping on and why. Jen Psaki, a State Department spokeswoman, said, “We wanted to ensure we’re collecting information because we need it and not just because we can.” Germany and France have demanded that the U.S. put a stop to eavesdropping on leaders, companies and law-abiding citizens. The U.S. already has a no-spying agreement with Canada, Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia.

Bigger than The Great Escape. The story of the first successful mass tunnel escape from a POW camp in First World War Germany. Situated in Lower Saxony, Germany, Holzminden swung open its barbed wire gates to welcome its first guests in September 1917. It was here that the transient population of officers and orderlies from Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, India and Argentina found themselves at the mercy of the despotic Kommandant, Karl Niemeyer, who prided himself on his unblemished breakout record. Serial escapees who had attempted multiple escapes from other camps were sent here for containment. A group of intrepid officers hatched a daring breakout plan that was to become the blueprint for escape attempts in subsequent wars. Under the feet of their German captors, the officers dug a 55m long tunnel through concrete foundations, rock and packed earth with little more than ingenuity and kitchen cutlery. Nine months later, twenty-nine officers emerged from the exit hole in a ...

Harold Cazneaux (30 March 1878 – 19 June 1953) was an Australian pictorialist photographer; a pioneer whose style had an indelible impact on the development of Australian photographic history. In 1916, he was a founder of the Pictorialist Sydney Camera Circle. As a regular participator in national and international exhibitions, Cazneaux was unfaltering in his desire to contribute to the discussion about the photography of his times. He created some of the most memorable images of the early twentieth century. Biography: Harold Pierce Cazneau (he added an "x" to his surname in 1904 to acknowledge his Huguenot ancestry) was born in Wellington, New Zealand to Australian parents who returned home after some years. For many years, Cazneaux’s prints were exhibited in shows organised by the London Salon of Photography (1911 to 1952) and later included in the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain’s annual salons. In 1914 he won Kodak's "Happy Moment" competition, and the £100 prize money went to a dep ...

Around 1250 A.D., historical records show, ice packs began showing up farther south in the North Atlantic. Glaciers also began expanding on Greenland, soon to threaten Norse settlements on the island. From 1275 to 1300 A.D., glaciers began expanding more broadly, according to radiocarbon dating of plants killed by the glacier growth. The period known today as the Little Ice Age was just starting to poke through. Summers began cooling in Northern Europe after 1300 A.D., negatively impacting growing seasons, as reflected in the Great Famine of 1315 to 1317. Expanding glaciers and ice cover spreading across Greenland began driving the Norse settlers out. The last, surviving, written records of the Norse Greenland settlements, which had persisted for centuries, concern a marriage in 1408 A.D. in the church of Hvalsey, today the best preserved Norse ruin. Colder winters began regularly freezing rivers and canals in Great Britain, the Netherlands and Northern France, with both the Thames in London and the Seine ...

Our Friendly Little Owl, visits us every year and treats us to some amazing spectacles of display with her kids. She watches us very closely and seems to be very friendly towards Zak. As I have been building the new fence, she has been sitting watching me work. For those of you who don't know the Little Owl, this is what its and what it looks like - and the three kids of course. The Little Owl (Athene noctua) is a bird which is resident in much of the temperate and warmer parts of Europe, Asia east to Korea, and north Africa. It is not native to Great Britain, but was first introduced in 1842, by Thomas Powys and is now naturalised there. It was also successfully introduced to the South Island of New Zealand in the early 20th century. This species is a part of the larger grouping of owls known as typical owls, Strigidae, which contains most species of owl. The other grouping is the barn owls, Tytonidae. The Little Owl is a small owl, usually 22 centimetres (8.7 in) tall with a wingspan of 56 centimetre .. ...

The team consisted of RNZFB members Dave Parker, Dave Allerton, *** Lancaster, Russell Lowry, Tony Holmes and Ben Geddes, who raced to defend the Blind Sailing World Cup.

Prince Charles' biographical tribute to his mother, the Queen, is on PBS. Lots of old family movie footage. At her coronation it was interesting to hear the names of all the nations subject (still) to England, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Ceylon and Pakistan. Yes, Pakistan. In 1925, while her Father George was still King, one fifth of the peoples living on the planet were still subjects and one fourth of the real estate. The empire had been reduced significantly by the independence of India in 1948. It seems today that of all of the countries on Earth, only 22 have not been invaded by Great Britain at some time in the past (only Guatamala, Bolivia and Paraguay in the Western Hemisphere) or nine out of ten. Today, Elizabeth is head of 16 "realms" with 54 other territories in the "Commonwealth" several of which are in Africa. My point, the World is a very different World than it was in my Grandfather's childhood. It is not controlled by Britain any more. America and the old U.S.S. ...
A BRIEF HISTORICAL LOOK AT THE BIRTH AND EVOLUTION OF INNER WHEEL TOWARDS GLOBAL DIFFUSION Even before 1934, some Clubs were formed in other parts of the world, having heard about the Inner Wheel organisation in Great Britain & Ireland - such as Ballarat (1931), North Sydney (1933) and Bendigo (1933) in Australia - in the following years, more Inner Wheel Clubs formed, for example, the Napier Club (1936) in New Zealand, Port Elizabeth (1938) in South Africa, and Winnipeg (1943) in Canada. From 1945 Inner Wheel continued to expand globally, with the formation of at least 15 Clubs in remote places. Equally, Inner Wheel's penetration into Europe is extremely interesting. The first European Club outside of Great Britain and Ireland was formed at Bergen (Norway) in 1935, thanks once again to Margarette Golding; the second, after ten years, in 1946 at Apeeldom, Holland. The Association began to change from a national organisation to a worldwide organisation, and it was felt that a closer connection was necessar ...
"The United States is freer than most nations. With the exception of Switzerland, which has no interest in letting Americans move there permanently, the United States is freer than any large nation in Europe. The Isle of Man is a very free society and a separate nation. But most Americans are not going to move to an island in between Ireland and Great Britain. So, the alternatives are minimal as far as moving east is concerned. I see no particular advantage of Australia over the United States, especially in the area of gun ownership. This is also true of New Zealand." - Gary North, "Is There a Case For Leaving the U.S.?"

Section B will consist of Japan, Australia, Brazil, China, Botswana, Netherlands, Singapore and Mexico. “I’m excited about that section,” says NZ coach Venita Hokai. “Our first aim would obviously be to get in the top four of the section and progress to quarterfinals. “In the other section, Japan, Australia, Brazil and China are quite good, and I would imagine even the Mexicans would have a lot of US college players in there. “The biggest goal for us is to maintain our top-six ranking from last time, but aiming for top four definitely.” The tournament runs from July 1-7 and the full team is … The full team is: Pitchers – Jasmin Kaiaruna (We ...

The crew have been 100 days at sea except for brief fuel stops in Pago Pago, American Samoa and Timaru, New Zealand. From Melbourne to American Samoa to New Zealand to the Ross Sea where the Japanese whaling fleet was found and then a 2200 mile chase westward. We are now directly South of India.

A fundamental change in the constitutional structures of the British Commonwealth (formerly the British Empire, and not to be confused with the Commonwealth of Australia) did occur, however, in the late 1920s. Under the British Royal and Parliamentary Titles Act 1927, which implemented a decision of an earlier Commonwealth conference, the unified Crown that had heretofore been the centre point of the Empire was replaced by multiple crowns worn by a shared monarch. Before 1927, King George V reigned as king in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the Irish Free State, South Africa, etc., each of these states, in effect, as dominions, amounting to a subset of the United Kingdom. After 1927, he reigned as King of Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, South Africa, etc. The form of use in the royal title as issued by King George V[20] did not mention the dominions by name, except 'Ireland', which changed from being referred to as Great Britain and Ireland to Great Britain, Ireland, indicating that it was no longer part ...
Rape exists in practically all today's societies, even in those states where no official data is available until now. According to the UN reports, rape occurs frequently in the following countries: Afghanistan, Guyana, Cambodia, Colombia, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Pakistan, Peru, on the Philippines, in the Slovak Republic Swaziland, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda and Zaire. In Germany, El Salvador, Micronesia, Ireland, Jordan, Kenya, Peru, the Seychelles, Sweden and Tajikistan, a more or less large increase in rape has been observed in recent times. Only in Mauritania, Laos, Georgia and Tunisia does rape appear to occur less. The actual number of instances of rape is far from being recorded in full, since the unreported number is extremely high. Frequently, the number of reports made to the police is taken as being correct. A study carried out in Canada, New Zealand, Great Britain, the USA and South Korea concluded than 8 to 15% of women had been raped at a young adult age. If the number of attempt ...

The Pearl Harbor Day Page In Memoriam: At dawn on Sunday, December 7, 1941, naval aviation forces of the Empire of Japan attacked the United States Pacific Fleet center at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and other military targets. The goal of this attack was to sufficiently cripple the US Fleet so that Japan could then attack and capture the Phillipines and Indo-China and so secure access to the raw materials needed to maintain its position as a global military and economic power. This would enable Japan to further extend the empire to include Australia, New Zealand, and India (the ultimate boundaries planned for the so-called "Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere"). The prevailing belief within the Japanese military and political establishment was that eventually, with the then expected German defeat of Great Britain and Soviet Russia, the United States' non-involvement in the European war, and Japan's control of the Pacific, that the world power structure would stabilize into three major spheres of influence: 1 ...

Furthest progress: Quarter-final 2000 One to watch Paul Aiton Profile Papua New Guinea is the only nation to boast Rugby League as its national sport and, since taking a bow in the game’s 1985-88 tournament, the Papuans have been World Cup ever-presents. Rugby League was brought to PNG during the 1930s and 40s by Australian miners and serviceman, and the sport quickly established itself in the national psyche. A governing body was founded in 1949 and, over the next three decades, Rugby League developed rapidly with growing numbers of participants and spectators. PNG joined the fledgling Rugby League International Federation in 1974 and entered the Test arena a year later, losing 40-12 to Great Britain in the capital Port Moresby. A decade later, Papua New Guinea were invited to participate in Rugby League’s newly-formatted World Cups of 1986-1988 and 1989-1992, with the hig ...
pretty much, too bad so many of the job this creates end up in other countries. "RNC Chair Reince Priebus: What do Finnish cars, Mexican solar panels, and Danish windmills have in common? They were all funded by your tax dollars. Thanks to President Obama, taxpayer money, mostly in the form of stimulus funds, ended up in the hands of companies overseas. Instead of creating jobs in America, the stimulus and other Obama policies created jobs or sent money to Finland, New Zealand, Indonesia, India, Mexico, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, China, Denmark, South Korea, the Dominican Republic, Thailand, Vietnam, Italy, Russia, Luxembourg, El Salvador, Great Britain, Spain, Japan, and France. How did this happen? Consider the example of Fisker Automotive. The company received $500 million in loan guarantees from the U.S. government to produce electric cars. Then they took their money and decided to produce their $100,000 electric sports cars in Finland. President Obama's policies may be spurring job creation in ...

Got to see Korea vs. Japan in soccer, New Zealand vs. Great Britain in field hockey, and 5 ladies doing some sort of dance routine featuring ribbons and Hula Hoops in what apparently passes as an Olympic sport (while competitive cheer is not, according to some US court bent on Title IX proportionality when it suits their needs). This has been a short summary of a few things that are WRONG in this country. Meanwhile, a kind-hearted bartender with an iPhone and a live feed let me watch Jordan Burroughs win Olympic Gold live. That's what's RIGHT in this country. Rant over. USA! USA! USA!
I have nothing else to do, so here is some statistical analyses of data after looking at the data. Amongst all countries which have won at least 3 medals (this is to exclude flash in the pan countries like TOGO and include sports power houses like INDIA) in Beijing Olympics, compare their performance to date in London Olympics. Rank them according to % change in number of medals. India is doing well. 3rd most improved country amongst sport power houses. China and US do not even make it in the top 20 and are in fact behind their 2008 performance. Data is below. So again GO INDIA GO. No need to despair. If we win one more medal, we will be the most improved sports nation. Country 2008 2010 % Improvement (to date) (per year) Mexico (MEX) 3 5 16.7 Sweden (SWE) 5 7 10.0 India (IND) 3 4 8.3 Denmark (DEN) 7 9 7.1 Japan (JPN) 25 29 4.0 Romania (ROU) 8 9 3.1 New Zealand (NZL)9 10 2.8 Hungary (HUN) 10 11 2.5 Great Britain (GBR)47 48 0.5 Netherlands (NED) 16 14 -3.1

By Lawrence Barretto BBC Sport at Eton Dorney Great Britain claimed their first gold medal of the London 2012 Olympics as rowers Helen Glover and Heather Stanning triumphed in the women's pair. The world silver medallists clocked a time of 7:27.13 to also become the first British female rowers to win an Olympic title. The medal ended Britain's four-day wait for a first gold medal. Bradley Wiggins is hoping to secure Britain's second gold in the cycling time trial, which begins at 14:15. Australia claimed silver and New Zealand the bronze in front of a capacity crowd at Eton Dorney. Stanning, 27 and Glover, 26 were pipped for gold by New Zealand at last year's World Championships, but have since remained unbeaten, taking gold in all three World Cups this season. They continued that form by setting an Olympic best in the first heat of the regatta on Saturday to confirm their place in the final.

Preparation of the Elite to escape Nibiru and the Pole Shift That many countries and wealthy individuals have gone about preparing to survive the ongoing Polar Shift in 2012 should come as no surprise, too anyone.
