What's In A Word? Lone wolf. Jihad. Islamist. ISIL. ISIS. Terrorist. Radical muslim jihadi well-trained militant al-Qaeda Yemen-based terrorist. What happened to Sleeper Cells? Did the media just get tired of scaring us with that phrase? Are they out there, still sleeping? What's the alarm clock? Should Americans -- or anyone -- be armed, just in case? Or face it like the French, or Jewish grocery shoppers in Paris? Trevor Loudon-- the author and freedom fighter from New Zealand on a swing through the United States, made these telling comments at a speech I was lucky enough to catch: If America loses its military and economic dominance, the bad guys in the world -- the Russians, Communist Chinese, North Koreans, Cubans, Iran, radical Muslims, Syrians and Iraqis, Marxists running South America and the rest, will carve up this planet, and you can't let that happen.

1.The Anglo-American Axis is represented, first and foremost, by the major English-speaking countires of the world: USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Israel. The European member nations of NATO, such as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands are also closely aligned with the AAA as are all the Scandinavian countries. So are the Asian Pacific Rim nations of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Pakistan, Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and Qatar also owe their allegiance to the AAA. The World Shadow Government is a secret, supranational organization which completely controls the Anglo-American Axis, as well as the European Union, NATO, among many other institutional entities which constitute the Global Control Matrix.[2] The very backbone of the Anglo-American Axis (AAA) is formed by the ‘special relationship’ that exists between the United States of America (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK).

May this new year bring you what you are searching for. May it broaden your horizons, stimulate you with challenges, engage your ambitions, encourage your confidence, flourish your passion, may you overcome hardship or loss, may it bring forth resolutions old and new, and most of all may you be safe, loved, and have the best in health and prosperity for the coming year! Remember the old year with fondness and many blissful memories...and prepare for more happy memories yet to come.
Palestinians will wait until January to seek UN recognition No official has said it bluntly, but the Palestinian threat to seek recognition of statehood again from the UN Security Council is likely to be postponed until the end of the year. US Secretary of State John Kerry has repeatedly asked for this postponement and without the needed nine votes to force the United States to veto a resolution, it makes little sense to go to the Security Council now. However, as of Jan. 1, the Security Council will include countries that will easily secure the needed votes for Palestine: Venezuela, Angola, New Zealand, Spain and Malaysia are replacing Argentina, Australia, Luxembourg, South Korea and Rwanda. Fatah leaders attending the Revolutionary Council told Al-Monitor that they have given President Mahmoud Abbas the freedom to delay until January, if needed, to fulfill the current road map of joining all UN agencies once the Security Council is given a chance to vote on the Palestinian demand. Speaking on Palestine ...

WELLINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. authorities have lost a motion to have cyber fugitive Kim Dotcom remanded in custody in New Zealand before his extradition hearing to face internet piracy charges in the United States.

Dateline 12-11-2433 Yesterday, military survey drones, while patrolling the wasteland near what was formally Salt Lake City, Utah, discovered another ancient ceremonial site attributed to the Dogu Culture. Unfortunately, this area is still contaminated with fallout from the Great War. The artifacts are still lethally radioactive and were left on site by a follow-up robotic patrol. The inexplicable WS or SM insignia was found on the bottoms of all the pieces. Dr. T. Guedes of the Institute for Amazonian Antiquities in Sao Paulo commented: “It is baffling what significance or function these miniature ceremonial sites and figurines had for the pre-war societies. They seem to be ubiquitous. Almost every time that military drones survey new areas, they find another Dogu installation. They have been found in almost all areas of what was formally referred to as the continental United States, also in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and the Amazon region of South America. We are dealing with a world-wide phenome ...

What The Hon. Tony Abbott MP Prime Minister said before inviting Hon. Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi in Parliament Madam Speaker, Mr President. It is long overdue for an Indian Prime Minister to address this Parliament – given that the leaders of the United States, China, Indonesia, Britain, Canada, Japan and New Zealand have already done so. But I am personally delighted that this omission is at last corrected. It is fitting that – in the home of our democracy – we should be addressed by the leader of the world’s largest democracy. There is so much that we can learn from a Prime Minister who must try to reach some 830 million voters and whose mastery of electioneering has meant that in India’s recent election he was literally beamed into dozens of different rallies simultaneously all-round the country. Prime Minister Modi is the first in decades with an absolute majority in the lower house, the Lok Sabha – because he imbued his fellow citizens with the sure hope that tomorrow can be be ...

History of Halloween Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31. The word Halloween is a shortening of All Hallows' Evening also known as Hallowe'en or All Hallows' Eve. Traditional activities include trick-or-treating, bonfires, costume parties, visiting "haunted houses" and carving jack-o-lanterns. Irish and Scottish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America in the nineteenth century. Other western countries embraced the holiday in the late twentieth century including Ireland, the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom as well as of Australia and New Zealand. Halloween has its origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain (pronounced "sah-win"). The festival of Samhain is a celebration of the end of the harvest season in Gaelic culture. Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter. The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dea . ...

Bohemian Rhapsody Released 31 October 1975 "Bohemian Rhapsody" is a song by the British rock band Queen. It was written by Freddie Mercury for the band's 1975 album A Night at the Opera. The song consists of several sections: a ballad segment ending with a guitar solo, an operatic passage, and a hard rock section. At the time, it was the most expensive single ever made and it remains one of the most elaborate recordings in popular music history. When it was released as a single, "Bohemian Rhapsody" became a commercial success, staying at the top of the UK Singles Chart for nine weeks and selling more than a million copies by the end of January 1976. It reached number one again in 1991 for five weeks following Mercury's death, eventually becoming the UK's third best-selling single of all time. It topped the charts in several other markets as well, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and The Netherlands, later becoming one of the best-selling singles of all time. In the United States the song ...
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.

A bit of information about the "criminal politician" residing in New Zealand: Criminal Investigations As a teenager, Schmitz acquired a reputation in his native Germany after having claimed to have bypassed the security of NASA, the Pentagon and Citibank under the name of Kimble – based on the character of Dr Richard Kimble in the long-running television programme The Fugitive. He also claimed to have hacked corporate PBX systems in the United States and said he was selling the access codes at $200 each, bragging that "every PBX is an open door to me." In 1994, he was arrested by German police for trafficking in stolen phone calling card numbers. He was held in custody for a month, released and arrested again on additional hacking charges shortly afterwards. He was eventually convicted of 11 counts of computer fraud, 10 counts of data espionage, and an assortment of other charges. He received a two-year suspended sentence – because he was underage at the time the crimes were committed. The judge in th ...

September 3rd: Feast of Pope Saint Gregory the Great. In 1189, England's King Richard I (the Lion-Hearted) was crowned in Westminster Abbey. In 1658, Oliver Cromwell (59), the Lord Protector of England, died in London; he was succeeded by his son, Richard. In 1783, representatives of the United States and Britain signed the Treaty of Paris, which officially ended the Revolutionary War. In 1868, the Japanese city of Edo was renamed Tokyo. In 1914, Cardinal Giacomo Della Chiesa became pope; he took the name Benedict XV. In 1923, the United States and Mexico resumed diplomatic relations. In 1939, Britain, France, Australia and New Zealand declared war on Germany, two days after the Nazi invasion of Poland; in a radio address, Britain's King George VI said, "With God's help, we shall prevail." The same day, a German U-boat torpedoed and sank the British liner SS Athenia some 250 miles off the Irish coast, killing more than 100 out of the 1,400 or so people on board. In 1944, British forces liberated Brussels ...

The NZ Super Fund should immediately dump its shareholding in a company producing white phosphorous that has been used as a weapon, says Labour defence spokesman David Shearer. White phosphorus, which leaves its victims with major chemical burns, has been used in modern conflicts in Iraq, Lebanon, Afghanistan and the Yemen. Amnesty International reported in 2009 the Israeli army had used white phosphorus as a smokescreen in Gaza City. Among the NZ Super Fund's $26 billion portfolio is a shareholding in Israel Chemicals. A United States Government purchase order from 2013 shows it bought white phosphorus for shells from Israel Chemicals' subsidiary ICL Performance Products. Shearer, who worked for the UN in some of those conflict zones where white phosphorus was used, said: "We should be divesting from that [shareholding] immediately. New Zealand should not be investing in any type of munitions that can be used in the way Israel is using them at the moment. "It is absolutely unacceptable and I think most . ...

I'm plowing through the 430 plus page Trafficking In Persons report which was released today in the United States. In it's fourteenth year of publishing it reports on what almost every government in the world is doing - or not doing - to combat human trafficking. I was struck by the opening statement... "In the 14 years the United States has produced the Trafficking in Persons Report, the world has made tremendous progress in the fight against human trafficking. There is no government, however, that has done a perfect job responding to this crime. In the years ahead, it seems unlikely that any government will reach perfection." I spoke back at the screen and said to myself... New Zealand could be the country... New Zealand could do it. I really believe that to be true. It might take many years to achieve but if we believe in a Slave Free NZ then we can be the first nation in the world to be truly slave free. What do you say John Key? You are in the United States right now, and whilst you sat in your ...

The euro gave up gains to weaken against the dollar on Monday, as yield differentials between U.S. Treasuries and German Bunds widened to multi-year highs, highlighting the monetary policy divergence between the United States and the euro zone. Amid lower-than-usual volumes due to a holiday in some parts of Europe, the dollar held gains made after upbeat U.S. jobs data on Friday. The reassuring data bolstered risk appetite and underpinned higher-yielding currencies like the Australian and New Zealand dollars. The euro fell roughly 0.15 percent near $1.36, having risen earlier in the European session. It was still some distance from a four-month low just above $1.35 hit on Thursday after the European Central Bank cut its main rates to record lows, imposed a negative rate on excess cash deposited with it and announced measures to pump money into the sluggish euro zone economy, aiming to ward off the risk of deflation.

The standard of living includes factors such as income, quality and availability of employment, class disparity, poverty rate, quality and affordability of housing, hours of work required to purchase necessities, Gross Domestic Product, inflation rate, number of holiday days per year, affordable (or free) access to quality healthcare, quality and availability of education, life expectancy, incidence of disease, cost of goods and services, infrastructure, national economic growth, economic and political and stability, political and religious freedom, environmental quality, climate and safety.

Professor Thomas Sowell provided more of these seeming contradictions in 2012, writing: When it comes to the rate of gun ownership, that is higher in rural areas than in urban areas, but the murder rate is higher in urban areas. The rate of gun ownership is higher among whites than among blacks, but the murder rate is higher among blacks. … [There are also] countries with stronger gun control laws than the United States, such as Russia, Brazil and Mexico. All of these countries have higher murder rates than the United States. You could compare other sets of countries and get similar results. Gun ownership has been three times as high in Switzerland as in Germany, but the Swiss have had lower murder rates. Other countries with high rates of gun ownership and low murder rates include Israel, New Zealand, and Finland. So what’s the answer we don’t want to hear? The critical difference among these regions and nations is explained right in Sowell’s title: it’s “not guns.” “It's people.” What ...
For anyone living in Australia, New Zealand or the United States! I have just formed an independent publishing house- Enrealment Press- and I have arranged distribution for its books in your countries. I will soon be publishing other people's books, but, in the meantime, my books 'Love it Forward' and 'Ascending with both Feet on the Ground' are available through those distribution channels. If you have an interest in either of them, it would be a great help if you would let your local bookstore or library know so that they can order them through my distribution channels. In the US, the distributor is 'New Leaf', and in Australia/NZ, the distributor is 'Phoenix Distribution.' Independent publishers survive through word of mouth from those who recommend their work. And it doesn't have to be book stores, it can also be yoga studios, small gift shoppes, spas and healing environments. These two quotes books do well in all kinds of spaces.. If you feel so inspired, please let others know... Thank you!

PRESS RELEASE CHICAGO, IL USA: FRIDAY, MAY 23, 2014 LIVE AND WORK LEGALLY IN New ZealanD IN 2014/2015 THROUGH THE New ZealanD SILVER FERN SKILLED WORKER IMMIGRATION PROGRAM When the United States passed a Congressional law in 1990 vides Section 203 (c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), Section 131, Pub L. 101-649, amended INA 203 which established what is known as the Diversity Visa (DV) program or Green Card Lottery, other Western nations introduced similar programs. Unlike the United States, which used lottery and luck to attract immigrants, New Zealand decided to call her own program; The Silver Fern Immigration Program. It is not based on lottery or chance or luck; rather, New Zealand wants to welcome skilled workers from other countries that would contribute to her national economy. Many people around the world are not aware of this program. Unlike the U.S. Diversity Visa (DV) program which is held annually, New Zealand does her immigration quota monthly. Today, New Zealand has 6% unempl ...
A little history: "May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month – a celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States. A rather broad term, Asian-Pacific encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific Islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island). Like most commemorative months, Asian-Pacific Heritage Month originated in a congressional bill. In June 1977, Reps. Frank Horton of New York and Norman Y. Mineta of California introduced a House resolution that called upon the president to proclaim the first ten days of May as Asian-Pacific Heritage Week. The following month, senators Daniel Inouye and Spark Matsunaga introduced a similar bill in the Senate. Both were p ...

New Zealand citizen targeted and killed by U.S. Drone in Yemen. Drone-Killing without due process is uncivilized- it's murder incorporated worldwide, ■ New Zealand and Australia have become subservient to the US/ NWO. - as Jeremy Scahill boldly states.: If the policy of New Zealand is-- ‘ Hey if our citizens are suspected of talking to terrorists, we’ll let Barack Obama order their deaths’-- then that should be debated within the government and democratic society of New Zealand. -- Why is it that the New Zealand Government is essentially seeding its sovereignty to the United States in this case and saying it’s all right that the President of the United States authorised an operation that effectively executed one of our citizens. -- This to me is pretty scandalous when nations like New Zealand and Australia are essentially saying ‘hey it’s ok if another nation kills our citizens in an undeclared war zone’, that even members of the US Congress question the legality of. ■ Question to Jere . ...

House News: CREDIT ASSISTANCE FOR RETURNING OFWs SOUGHT Lawmakers have filed a bill providing credit assistance to returning Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) affected by current global financial crisis. Reps. Rufus Rodriguez (2nd District, Cagayan de Oro City), one of the authors of House Bill 3802, said a recession in the United States, Europe and Japan would cause many OFWs to lose their jobs. Besides Singapore, France, Ireland and New Zealand are now officially in recession. "The Philippines is vulnerable to the present crisis because of its overseas workers. There are around 8 million Filipinos overseas or nearly one-tenth of the Philippine population. The government should be ready for the influx of jobless OFWs from the crisis-ridden countries," Rodriguez said. (PRIB/lvc)
Simon Terry, Executive Director, Sustainability Council The Trans-Pacific Partnership covers a lot of non-trade matters, so why is there a reluctance to discuss the overall balance of costs and benefits? The Trans-Pacific Partnership is very different from past trade deals and the differences matter. It bundles together standard gains from trade with a wide range of non-trade matters that will set privileges for foreign investors and impose serious costs. More than any past trade deal, it matters what the overall balance of benefits and costs is. When sizing up the gains, the Government has relied on estimates from a team of United States economists who most recently published with the Peterson Institute. Based on their work, Trade Minister Tim Groser told Parliament the TPP would result in US$4.1 billion of gains for New Zealand in the year 2025 (about NZ$5 billion). But a detailed review of the potential gains led by economist Geoff Bertram finds that there is much less in prospect. The Sustainability C ...

Chiropractic is popular all over the world. Although the chiropractic profession was founded in the United States in 1895, spinal manipulation has a long history of use in China. By the 1960's, it had spread to Canda, New Zealand, and South Africa. More recently, it has extended across Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Australia. In fact, in Australia, one in four adults have consulted with a chiropractor, and nearly 40% of the elderly population rely on complementary and alternative medicine such as chiropractic.

[PHOTOS] Barack Obama Saves Wife Michelle From Wardrobe Malfunction Grabs *** !! A Gentleman indeed, Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady's billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince! As Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton arrived in New Zealand with her husband Prince William and son Prince George, the skirt of her red Catherine Walker coat flew up in the front, giving the Duchess of Cambridge an extremely close call.

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 ...

Tsunami bomb From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia For the band, see Tsunami Bomb. The tsunami bomb was an attempt during World War II to develop a tectonic weapon that could create destructive tsunamis. The project commenced after US Navy officer E.A. Gibson noticed small waves generated by explosions used to clear coral reefs. The idea was developed by the United States and New Zealand military in a programme code named Project Seal.[1] Tests were conducted by Professor Thomas Leech, of the University of Auckland, in Whangaparaoa off the coast of Auckland and off New Caledonia[1] between 1944 and 1945. British and US defence chiefs were eager to see it developed, and it was considered potentially as important as the atomic bomb. It was expected to cause massive damage to coastal cities or coastal defences. The weapon was only tested using small explosions and never on a full scale. 3,700 test explosions[1] were conducted over a seven-month period. The tests revealed that a single explosion would not pro ...
rocked the world this week – spawning solidarity actions in Japan and California, USA and a total of 16 protest actions throughout Aotearoa aka New Zealand. 'TPPA’ trended throughout the events and messages from supporters worldwide poured in thick and fast, including touching messages from Malaysia, Canada, the United States, and our Aussie cousins! While many publications and media outlets covered yesterday’s actions, none so far have aggregated the hashtag content so our media team is collaborating to bring together various independent media sources into this one post. (The content featured here will grow over the course of the next few days.) The crowd gathers at what was once the site of Occupy 2.0 Queen Street; the 2nd of 4 autonomous occupations of Tamaki Makaurau aka Auckland City. The march was huge and very exciting, to see so many Aucklanders taking over Queen Street to exercise their democratic rights.

Solidarity Message from Japan To all the people of the United States of America and New Zealand gathering today. We are happy to extend our solidarity message to all of you gathering at the nation-wide rallies on 29 March. We, here in Japan, also will hold a mass rally - “It’s time to withdraw from the TPP negotiation!” – on 30 March in the heart of Tokyo Metropolitan. It is important that people of the three TPP countries stand up at the same timing and raise voices against TPP. The USA is the world largest power and has been leading the TPP negotiations. Japan is also a large economy and is being engaged in the bilateral negotiations with the US, and other TPP countries are carefully monitoring the negotiations. And New Zealand is one of the key players at the end game having a sensitive interest in market access of dairy product into the US and Japan, and concerns about the critical issues of the public health care system and ISDS. The TPP negotiation couldn’t be concluded by the previous yea ...
MH370: Aircraft was travelling faster than estimated - AMSA PERTH: Planes and ships were racing Friday to a fresh search zone after a "credible new lead" that Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 was flying faster than first thought before it plunged into the remote Indian Ocean. Ten aircraft from six countries -- Australia, China, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and the United States -- altered their flight paths to an area 1,100 kilometres (685 miles) northeast of where they have been looking for a week, far off western Australia. Five Chinese ships and an Australian naval vessel were also steaming to the new zone of interest after the weather cleared following the suspension of the search on Thursday due to thunderstorms and high winds, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said. "The new information is based on continuing analysis of radar data between the South China Sea and the Strait of Malacca before radar contact was lost," AMSA said. "It indicated that the aircraft was travelling faster than previ ...
Today my friend said he read stuff.co.nz everyday but didn't know what the TransPacific Partnership Agreement was. So anyway, this involves celebrities, dolphins, politicians, secret documents, trillions of dollars, and the future freedom of New Zealand to make its own laws. The TransPacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) is a bad deal for New Zealand and Australia, our economies would suffer, and we would lose legal rights. The TPPA is an international treaty that will cover "40% of global GDP and over 25% of world trade" according to La Trobe University (Australia). [1] It includes Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, Peru, Singapore, New Zealand, the United States and Vietnam with a collective GDP of over US$27 trillion. [19]. In the US it is called the TPP. Changing lots of NZ laws - If the NZ government signs this we would need to change lots of laws to be the same as other countries and the US. Potential Downsides - * TradeMe could lose a lot of cheap goods including luxury brands, cosmetics, brand nam ...
On this day in Royal Australian Navy History. 27 March 1885 ADML Sir George Tryon, CB, presented his proposals on the defence of Australia to the Governments of the Australian Colonies. The report recommended one fleet for all the colonies and New Zealand. 1907 CMDR William Clarkson, ANF, and CMDR W. J. Colquhoun, DSO, ANF, departed Australia for Japan to conduct an in depth study of the Imperial Japanese Navy methods of ship construction, administration, and training. The pair then also visited the United States, Canada, and England, to observe similar activities. This information was then brought back to Australia to help with the further development of the Australian Naval Forces. Clarkson and Colquhoun were both ex State Navy officers. Colquhoun had been awarded the DSO, and twice Mentioned in Dispatches, for bravery and leadership while attached to the RN Brigade in South Africa in 1899-1900, while Clarkson had served onboard HMCS PROTECTOR in the Boxer Rebellion in 1900, and later went onto become a ...

Legend's whiskeys. Today focus on Cutty Sark Did you know that the brand name comes from the famous clipper Cutty Sark, which was a British sailing ship that served in the tea trade of China and New Zealand wool with the United Kingdom. Cutty Sark is also the name of a witch in a poem by Robert Burns. Cutty Sark is a blend brand that was created in 1923 by Berry Bros & Rudd, who was a trader specializing in tea, spices, wine and spirits in the eighteenth century London. Cutty Sark has long been reserved for private salons of the aristocracy London. Was then imported into the United States during Prohibition via the Bahamas to reach the American public. This boldness was more than rewarded since, the Cutty Sark whiskey is now one of whiskey favorite of American people.

Malaysia Airlines confirms that flight MH370 had lost contact with Subang Air Traffic Control at 2.40am, today. There has been speculation that the aircraft has landed at Nanming. We are working to verify the authenticity of the report and others. Flight MH370 was operated on a Boeing 777-200 aircraft. It departed Kuala Lumpur at 12.41 am earlier this morning bound for Beijing. The aircraft was scheduled to land at Beijing International Airport at 6.30am local Beijing time.

Same-sex marriage (also known as *** marriage) is marriage between two people of the same biological sex and/or gender identity. Legal recognition of same-sex marriage or the possibility to perform a same-sex marriage is sometimes referred to as marriage equality or equal marriage, particularly by supporters.[1][2][3][4][5] The legalization of same-sex marriage is characterized as "redefining marriage" by many opponents.[6][7][8] The first laws in modern times enabling same-sex marriage were enacted during the first decade of the 21st century.

I am a senior in high school in Costa Mesa. I am in Youth and Government and wrote a proposal regarding the TPP, which I will present at a state-wide Youth and Government convention this weekend. Let me know your thoughts, and/ or if you have any last-minute suggestions before I present! Thank you, Emily Flores International Affairs Committee Proposal Topic of Concern Proposal to democratize Trans-Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement meetings. Justification This agreement will effect all citizens of the nine TPP partner countries involved: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, Vietnam, and the United States . Therefore, the people of all countries should be heavily involved in negotiations regarding the TPP partnership. This proposal does not attack the integrity or intent of the TPP agreement; it challenges the secret, exclusive meetings that have been held thus far, in which only negotiators, chosen by the leaders of the involved countries, have attended.

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. Officials warned that "the worst is yet to come", a sentiment echoed by Glenn Greenwald and by Lon Snowden. The extent of the leaks may never be known, according to US investigators, due in part to outdated software at ...

In Canada, Boxing Day is listed in the Canada Labour Code as an optional holiday. Only in the province of Ontario has it been made a statutory holiday where all workers rec ...

Hello my little ones, in a little more than 5 hours I begin my ride around the world. Tonight for some, it is Christmas Eve. For those that are wondering why, let me explain. I usually start at the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean and travel west. So, typically, I visit the South Pacific first, then New Zealand and Australia. After that, I shoot up to Japan, over to Asia, across to Africa, then onto Western Europe, Canada, the United States, Mexico and Central and South America. However, keep in mind, my route can be affected by weather, so it’s really unpredictable. I will start communicating with you all on my event page though beginning tomorrow night in the US at 8:00PM. NORAD coordinates with my Elf launch staff to confirm my launch time, but from this point on, I call the shots. So if you want you can track my ride overseas tonight if you wish. Here is my event page for my ride with a link to NORAD. I will be pretty busy for a bit so don’t worry if I don’t reply to your messages an ...

The United States has a "special relationship" with the United Kingdom[252] and strong ties with Canada,[253] Australia,[254] New Zealand,[255] the Philippines,[256] Japan,[257] South Korea,[258] Israel,[259] and several European countries such as France and Germany. It works closely with fellow NATO members on military and security issues and with its neighbors through the Organization of American States and free trade agreements such as the trilateral North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico. In 2008, the United States spent a net $25.4 billion on official development assistance, the most in the world. As a share of America's large gross national income (GNI), however, the U.S. contribution of 0.18% ranked last among 22 donor states. By contrast, private overseas giving by Americans is relatively generous.[260]
Travel Around the world in 195 days, six hours - by bike Share 0 inShare0 Email Cathy Heffernan The Guardian, Saturday 16 February 2008 A Scottish man became the fastest to cycle around the world yesterday when he arrived in Paris after nearly seven months on the road. Mark Beaumont, 25, completed the trip in 195 days and six hours - beating the current record of 276 days. After almost seven months of dodging drivers, sleeping rough and struggling to get enough to eat, Beaumont is expected to enter the Guinness Book of Records, once the feat is verified. Carrying 80kg of gear, including a tent, on a £2,500 road bike, Beaumont beat the previous record by 81 days. He said the last two days on the road had been hard, but "about 40km from Paris the adrenaline kicked in and I flew up the last hills". His trip took him through 20 countries on a route which included Pakistan, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Holland last August took four hours; Germany three days. He endured floods and ro ...

Reports say Australia's spy agency offered to share information about its own citizens with its foreign intelligence partners. The Guardian Australia said this is according to leaked documents by US whistleblower, Edward Snowden. It said the documents show that the spy agency discussed the option of sharing "medical, legal or religious information". The partners included the United States, Britain, Canada and New Zealand, collectively known as 5-Eyes. It follows a release last month from Snowden which showed that Australian spy agencies tried to listen to the phone calls of Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono as well as his wife and inner circle. This had sparked a diplomatic crisis. 938LIVE/DL

Leslie Lee has declared herself an Artist since she was a child. Though born in Eastern Oregon’s wheat ranch country she was raised in Portland, Oregon and returned there after earning a Bachelor of Fine Art at Washington University in St. Louis Missouri. She worked as a graphic designer in Portland for over twelve years, with a half-year stint in Teheran, Iran. When her daughter Rachel was old enough for preschool, Leslie returned to school herself, studying sculpture and ceramics at Portland State University. For the past twenty years she has concentrated on ceramic sculpture, showing in galleries throughout the United States and shipping work to collections as far away as New Zealand and Denmark. In 1997 Leslie and ceramic artist Dennis Meiners, moved to the Applegate Valley near Jacksonville in southern Oregon, where they were constructing an adobe and strawbale studio. Much of both artists’ time has been devoted to finishing this building and creating their strawbale home. In 2005 the couple name ...

World Cup Final: Australia v New Zealand Old Trafford, Manchester Saturday, November 30 2.30pm (UK) Sunday, November 31 1.30am (AEDT), 12.30am (AEST) Televised: 7mate – Live from 1am Sunday (NSW); midnight (Qld) New Zealand are battle-hardened after last week's clash with England, but can they end Australia's incredible defensive streak and defend their World Cup title? Watch Out New Zealand: Much attention in the build-up will focus on Greg Inglis's possible return to the centres for Australia but Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney would be wise not to ignore the threat posed by the man on the opposite side of the field. When the Kangaroos squad was announced six weeks ago Jarryd Hayne's inclusion was seen as a way to cover wing or fullback should the squad be struck down by a crisis of injuries. Yet a gamble by coach Tim Sheens to go with the Eels superstar at right centre ahead of the experienced Brent Tate for the quarter-final clash with the United States saw Hayne score four tries, becoming just the eigh ...

culture wars! They are not, contrary to what U.S. media coverage might suggest, a wholly American phenomena. On Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth II cleared the way for same-sex marriage in Britain after approving a bill passed by Parliament. It didn't, however, pass without controversy. While the bill was backed by Prime Minister David Cameron, many in his Conservative Party opposed it, leading to a two-hour debate in the House in Commons. Still, the country didn't see the massive protests that flooded France during the spring. Same-sex marriages could start as early as next summer in England and Wales. In April, after facing stiff resistance from the conservative group Family First, the New Zealand parliament passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage, with ceremonies slated to begin on August 19. Before that, Uruguay's parliament voted to become the second country in Latin America to recognize *** marriage despite strong Catholic opposition. As more and more politicians in the United States move toward suppor ...

Antarctica is the coldest, driest, windiest, and most isolated continent on Earth. The extreme climate limits the presence and activities of humans in Antarctica. The persistent cold (even during the austral summer), the limited precipitation (which qualifies much of the continent as frozen desert), the frequent overcast skies, the severe winds, and the succession of storms over the ocean and coastal areas help explain why Antarctica is the only continent that has never had a native human population Although seven countries (Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, New Zealand, Norway, and the United Kingdom) maintain claims to territory in Antarctica, the United States and most other countries do not recognize those claims. Governance of the continent is managed through the Antarctic Treaty (signed in Washington, DC, in 1959) and its associated instruments, such as the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty. The continent is reserved for peaceful purposes and science, and most of those ...

MANILA (AFP) - The United Nations was on Tuesday poised to appeal for hundreds of millions of dollars in emergency aid for the tyhoon-ravaged Philippines, as a massive international relief effort began to build momentum. UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos is in Manila to launch a "flash appeal" for cash, while the United States and Britain deployed warships carrying thousands of soldiers to assist in a vast operation to help nearly 10 million people affected by Friday's super typhoon. After famished survivors ransacked aid convoys, the Philippine authorities deployed armoured vehicles and set up checkpoints in the devastated city of Tacloban on Tuesday to stop desperate victims raiding food and medical supplies. Almost 10 per cent of the Philippines' population has been affected after Super Typhoon Haiyan smashed into the nation's central islands, leaving at least 10,000 people feared dead while 660,000 have lost their homes, according to the UN. The Pentagon said the aircraft carrier USS George Washingto ...

Who is the NWO? The corporate portion of the NWO is dominated by international bankers, oil barons and pharmaceutical cartels, as well as other major multinational corporations. The Royal Family of England, namely Queen Elizabeth II and the House of Windsor, (who are, in fact, descendants of the German arm of European Royalty - the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family - changed the name to Windsor in 1914), are high level players in the oligarchy which controls the upper strata of the NWO. The decision making nerve centers of this effort are in London (especially the City of London), Basel Switzerland, and Brussels (NATO headquarters). The United Nations, along with all the agencies working under the UN umbrella, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), are full time players in this scheme. Similarly, NATO is a military tool of the NWO. The leaders of all major industrial countries like the United States, England, Germany, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, etc. (members of the "G7/G8" ) are active and fully coopera ...

Main article: Halloween around the world The traditions and importance of Halloween vary greatly among countries that observe it. In Scotland and Ireland, traditional Halloween customs include children dressing up in costume going "guising", holding parties, while other practices in Ireland include lighting bonfires, and having firework displays. In Brittany children would set candles in skulls in graveyards. Mass transatlantic immigration in the 19th century popularized Halloween in North America, and celebration in the United States and Canada has had a significant impact on how the event is observed in other nations. This larger North American influence, particularly in iconic and commercial elements, has extended to places such as South America, Australia, New Zealand, (most) Continental Europe, Japan, and other parts of East Asia. In the Philippines, on the night of Halloween, Filipinos return to their hometowns and purchase candles and flowers, in preparation for the following All Saints Day and All ...
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 ...
The strange story of Atlantica The effort to unite Europe and the U.S. started in 1939, with the publication of a book by an influential journalist, Clarence Streit. This influential book was called ”Union Now,” and had a galvanizing effect on the anti-fascist youth of the time, a sort of cross between Thomas Friedman’s “The World Is Flat” and Naomi Klein’s “The Shock Doctrine.” Streit served in World War I in an intelligence unit, and saw up close the negotiations for the Treaty of Versailles. He then became a New York Times journalist assigned to cover the League of Nations, which led him to the conclusion that the only way to prevent American isolationism and European fascism was for political and economic integration of the major “freedom-loving” peoples, which he described as America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and most of Western Europe. The Five Eyes surveillance architecture was created just a few years later, as was the international monetary regime concocted ...
Eleanor Catton is youngest Man Booker winner!!! Eleanor Catton was awarded the Man Booker Prize for "The Luminaries," an immersive tale set in 19th-century New Zealand that explores identity, greed and human frailty. At 28, Catton is the youngest winner of the Booker. She was born in Canada and raised in Christchurch, New Zealand. The Booker is Britain's most prestigious literary prize, awarded annually to a novelist from Britain, Ireland or a Commonwealth country. The winner receives 50,000 pounds, or about $80,000. The book was released by Granta in Britain and Little, Brown and Co. in the United States. At 848 pages, it is the longest book to win the Booker Prize. The other nominees were "We Need New Names," by NoViolet Bulawayo, a debut novel about a 10-year-old girl who journeys from Zimbabwe to the United States; "Harvest," by Jim Crace, a dark, vividly drawn novel about the inhabitants of a small village; "A Tale for the Time Being," by Ruth Ozeki, about a discovered diary that links people in dist ...
US Men dooms Panama in stoppage time! Updated Oct 16, 2013 1:21 AM ET Graham Zusi and Aron Johannsson scored in second-half stoppage time, and the United States rallied for a 3-2 win at Panama on Tuesday night that left Mexico's World Cup hopes alive and knocked out the Panamanians. The U.S., which clinched a World Cup berth last month, didn't use most of its starters, and Gabriel Torres put Panama ahead in the 18th minute in a downpour at Panama City. Michael Orozco tied it the 64th minute, just as Costa Rica took a 2-1 lead at home against Mexico. Luis Tejada scored in the 83rd, putting Panama within minutes of a fourth-place finish and a berth in next month's playoff against Oceania champion New Zealand. Mexico, which last missed the World Cup in 1990, would have been eliminated. But Zusi scored 1:24 into three minutes of stoppage time, and Johannsson added his first international goal at the 2:40 mark to seal the U.S. win and Panama's elimination. The Americans, who have lost just once in their last 1 ...

Not sure if anyone is interested, but this is a blog I wrote for a writing assignment. Las Vegas Star Trek convention, August 2013 Four days of the most amazing experience of my life. A trekkie from way back, being with 5000 other Star Trek Fans was out of this world. My highlight though is the last day, Sunday. Kate Mulgrew and Robert Beltran, are on stage together. I got brave enough to get up and ask a question. The conversation went like this: Me: um, this is um, my first time, um at a Star Trek convention, um actually it's my first time um in the United States. (Well that got people cheering, but you can tell my time at toastmasters hasn't helped in reducing the umms) Kate: You're Australian. Me: New Zealander Kate: Oh New Zealand Me: Out of all the Star Trek series, Voyager was my favorite. And I had quite a crush on Commander Chakotay. Robert: Thank you Me: in several episodes we saw Capt. Janeway in the bath tub with very little on. But for those of us who would have liked to see more of the men, ...
aviator world officil-Aircraft maintenance technician, as used in the United States, refers to an individual who holds a mechanic certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration; the rules for certification, and for certificate-holders, are detailed in Subpart D of Part 65 of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR's), which are part of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations.[1] Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMT's) inspect and perform or supervise maintenance, preventive maintenance, and alteration of aircraft and aircraft systems. In the US, aircraft maintenance technicians usually refer to themselves as A&Ps, for airframe and powerplant mechanics. The Canadian, Australian and New Zealand equivalent of an AMT is an aircraft maintenance engineer.
Canada Busted in Industrial Espionage In Brazil has long been clear that the NSA spying program is being used for industrial espionage, by spying on large foreign corporations, and the biggest financial payments systems such as VISA and Swift. Indeed, in a slide leaked by Edward Snowden, “economic” was one of the main justifications for spying. And it has long been known that the “Five Eyes” – the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand – share their spying information amongst themselves. So it should not come as a total surprise that other members of the Five Eyes – such as Canada – are also engaged in industrial espionage. Specifically, documents leaked by Edward Snowden show that Canadian spies targeted Brazil’s Mines and Energy Ministry. Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff rightly called it industrial espionage, and Brazilian foreign minister Luiz Alberto Figueiredo expressed: The government’s repudiation of this serious and unacceptable violation of national s .. ...
White Sox NAMED for Gilley's Shield...

For the first time, Softball NZ will host a round of the Australian interstate competition, after sending teams across the Tasman for the past several years as part of its women’s international programme. While the home team won’t be a full-strength roster, it will be the strongest New Zealand have been able to field at this event, as Shaw builds her preparation towards next year’s ISF World Championship in the Netherlands. “We’ve done quite a bit of work establishing which players were Coming Back from the United States during college holidays,” says Shaw. “We also had to work around college exams and some of these players had to have exams moved forward to return to New Zealand in time to play this series. It will be really great to ...

10 years ago today I left the UK with a backpack, a laptop, wide eyes and an open mind. Here are a few things that I am thinking of today. In 10 years I have road tripped across the United States several times, took a boat to the Statue of Liberty, 'Lay Down' at the Millennium Park chicago silver bean, hiked down the Grand Canyon, visited art in Death Valley, snowboarded in Utah, 'worked out' on muscle beach, walked around Alcatraz, visited ghost towns, bet in Vegas, partied in the desert at an old mining town and wandered across the border into Tijuana. I scuba dived in Fiji and drank Kava with tribal chiefs. I have sky dived in New Zealand, rode a camel, surfed, boxed, dived and lived near the beach in Australia. I have visited Thailand three times, ran from a Tsunami, ran a marathon in Phuket, boxed, dived, ate toad, ate scorpions, drank snake filled booze, rode an elephant, petted an alligator, played with tigers and partied to the full moon. I have travelled to Laos taken a boat down the Mekong river ...
On 5 - 7 October 2013, Indonesia (my homeland) is going to host the 2013 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum (APEC) - the biggest meeting of world leaders. APEC brought together thousands of ministerial delegates, corporate executives and government leaders of 21 Pacific Rim nations. The APEC nations, know as "Member Economies", include Australia, Brunei, Canada, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, New Zealand, Singapore, Korea, Thailand, United States, China, Hong Kong, Mexico, Papua New Guinea, Chile, Peru, Russia and Vietnam.   APEC Summit draws the ire of tens of thousands of Indonesians, including me, who are concerned for our welfare and the rights of those exploited by rapacious global Capitalist systems. So what are my issues??         How Neoliberalism Ravaged the Asia Pacific     The Asia Pacific free trade area might have failed, but it was but one of the weapons that the ascendant neoliberal establishment deployed to pry open the Asian economies to free trade and the unrestric ...
You don’t need an eye patch or a peg leg to be a pirate these days. You simply need to care for the Earth and the future of our children. For the first time in decades I can truthfully say I’m proud to be a Greenpeace co-founder. Their recent campaign into Russian Arctic waters is courageous, and has succeeded in focusing international attention on oil and gas drilling in the fragile Arctic environment. Strategically it is a brilliant campaign. With 16 nationalities represented on their crew the result is 16 different diplomatic issues to be addressed. The crew are from the Netherlands (where the ship is registered) and from from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, the United States, Britain, New Zealand, Ukraine, Russia, France, Italy, Turkey, Finland, Switzerland, Poland and Sweden, the group said. And now Russia has charged Greenpeace with piracy for boarding the Prirazlomnaya oil platform to hang a banner. This is going to present a bit of a dilemma for the United States because the Cap ...

Today's holiday Sept. 19 is "International Talk Like a Pirate Day," a playful holiday where people are encouraged to use common pirate phrases such as "Ahoy, matey!" Today in history On Sept. 19, 1596, the city of Monterrey, in New Spain, was founded by Diego de Montemayor. In 1893, women in New Zealand were given the right to vote. In 1944, near the end of World War II, Finland and the Soviet Union signed an armistice. In 1950, the first electronic computer was created in Japan. In 1952, then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover barred Charlie Chaplin from re-entering the United States. In 1957, the U.S. conducted its first underground nuclear bomb test. In 1959, Disneyland, in California, banned Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev from visiting. In 1988, Greg Louganis suffered a concussion after hitting his head on a springboard during the Summer Olympics. And, in 1991, German tourists discovered "Otzi the Iceman" near the border of Austria and Italy.
ON SEPTEMBER 19… 1692 – Giles Corey, 71, was pressed to death after refusing to plead in the Salem witch trials. 1778 – The Continental Congress passed the first budget of the United States. 1796 – President George Washington's farewell address to the nation was printed in Philadelphia’s American Daily Advertiser . In it, he warned of the dangers of political parties, saying they can "become potent engines by which cunning, ambitious and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people, and to usurp for themselves the reins of government." 1846 – Maximin Giraud and Melanie Calvat, two shepherd children, reported seeing the Virgin Mary on Mount Sous-Les Baisses near La Salette, France. 1881 – Eighty days after a failed office seeker shot him in Washington, D.C., President James A.

READ THIS, HE MAKES SENSE... How the Tea Party Can Save America and the World – a Plea From New Zealand Submitted by Trevor on July 3, 2013 – 8:31 am EST6 Comments Many Tea Partiers and American patriots understand that the fate of the United States of America hangs in the balance. No melodrama here. If the US loses its position as the world’s number one military super power, another country, or countries, will take its place. Realistically, that can only be Russia or China, or more likely, an alliance of Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Vietnam and whoever ever else climbs aboard. As the U.S. Dollar slowly sinks and America’s prestige and power goes with it, the “Evil Axis” grows bolder. But why should I care? I’m safe aren’t I? Way down at the bottom of the South Pacific, in New Zealand. Well, maybe not so safe. China is steadily advancing through the Pacific. It now has several footholds in our region, particularly in Fiji, which is my country’s nearest ma ...
Towards Effective Technology Education in New Zealand Maxwell S. Reid Introduction New Zealand is a small former British colony in the South Pacific with a population of 3.9 million people. The small economy of the country is heavily dependent on overseas trade. Historically, a large proportion of New Zealand’s exports, mainly agricultural products, went to the United Kingdom. In the past 20 years, however, New Zealand has had to adapt to a changing world, so that now our largest exports are to Australia, Japan, the United States, and China. New Zealand has, of necessity, moved away from its dependence on dairy, meat and wool exports, as the new industries of forestry, horticulture, fishing, manufacturing and tourism have become more significant (Department of Statistics, 1999). These changes, together with the huge advances in the associated technology, have created dramatic changes to our economy, and consequently, the fabric of New Zealand society. There has been an increasing awareness of the delica ...

Tried to watch the acclaimed, Jane Campion directed series Top of the Lake on Netflix. Turned it off 10 minutes into the second ep when a character just upped and nonchalantly killed a dog. I don't need a litany of misery in my life right now. Rant: I am actually so angry at Jane Campion for this that I want to forget The Piano, Sweetie, and Portrait of a Lady and never set foot in New Zealand - which, according to her series, is just as full of misogynistic, sex trafficking, animal killing *** as the United States is. I'm sick to death of trying to watch anything without getting a queasy feeling anytime an animal enters a scene.
Is the World feeling betrayed by the US spying and lying program? Megaupload Judge Steps Down After Declaring U.S. ‘the Enemy’ By David Kravets07.18.123:32 PM Kim Dotcom. The New Zealand judge overseeing the extradition proceedings of accused file-sharing kingpin and Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom is recusing himself from the case after making a public remark that the United States was “the enemy.” Auckland District Judge David Harvey was commenting at a copyright conference earlier this month when he said, “We have met the enemy, and he is (the) U.S.”
Colonialism is not the source of Africa's problems Walter Williams: ... African leaders, and many people on the left, blame Africa's problems on the evils of colonialism. They sometimes blame the violence on the borders colonialists created that ignored ethnicity. Many African nations have been independent for four decades. If colonial borders were a major problem, how come they haven't changed them? And, by the way, colonialism cannot explain Third World poverty. Some of today's richest countries are former colonies, such as: United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Some of today's poorest countries were never colonies, such as: Ethiopia, Liberia, Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. The colonialism argument is simply a cover up for African dictators. The worst thing the West can do to Africa is to give more foreign aid. For the most part, foreign aid is government to government. As such, it provides the financial resources that enable Africa's grossly corrupt and incompetent regimes to buy milit ...
"Even when you think you have no more to give, when a friend cries out to you . . . you will find the strength to help." 60years ago yesterday, North Korea invaded South Korea by surprise. And South Korea's 17 brave friends came to rescue. In the face of 1,642,600 Soviet/Chinese/North Korean invaders, South Korea and its friends were severely out numbered and out gunned. But they did not back down, and pushed the invaders back. From this tragic war, many strong friendships were established. South Korea will never forget the sacrifice of its friends. South Korea will never forget that we owe our current glory and prosperous economy to these friends. As a citizen of South Korea, I thank you all. Without your valor and sacrifice, I would not be here today. -United States -United Kingdom -Australia -Belgium -Canada -Colombia -Ethiopia -France -Greece -Luxembourg -Netherlands -New Zealand -Philippines -South Africa -Thailand -Turkey

WHITE-TAILED DEER My hosta bed is like a salad bar To deer that wander through my yard at night. Tomato blooms are cervine caviar; My potted plants to them a sweet delight! They were not here a score of years ago. From parks and outer parts they filtered in. The mix of open grass and trees, you know,--- A perfect eco-niche for flourishing. Last night I saw a buck upon my lawn--- So still it stood, face towards me, ears erect, His antler tines swept up from curv-ed horn. I moved a step; he did what I'd expect: He bounded off to reach a wooded blind, His snow-white tail a-flagging from behind! -J.W. McPherson The white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), also known as the Virginia deer or simply as the whitetail, is a medium-sized deer native to the United States,Canada, Mexico, Central America, and South America as far south as Peru. It has also been introduced to New Zealand and some countries in Europe, such as Finland, Czech Republic, and Serbia. In the Americas, it is the most widely distributed wild ...

World Cup QUALIFYING (CONCACAF) Goals by Bryan Ruiz and Celso Borges put Costa Rica in a stronger position to qualify for next year's World Cup with a 2-0 victory over Panama on Tuesday night. The Costa Ricans have 11 points from six matches with a 3-1-2 record. That trails only the United States (4-1-1), which beat Honduras earlier in the night. Ruiz opened the scoring on a free kick in the 49th minute, and Borges clinched it just about two minutes later from long distance in a steady rain at National Stadium. Panama has six points on a 1-2-3 record and is fifth of the six teams. The top three finishers from the CONCACAF finals will qualify for Brazil 2014, with the fourth-place team entering a playoff against New Zealand.
US, Costa Rica win to lead qualifying Jozy Altidore matched an American record with a goal for the fourth match in a row as the United States beat Honduras 1-0 Tuesday to stay atop the table in North American World Cup 2014 qualifying. The Americans kept their two-point lead over Costa Rica in the six-nation ladder with 13 points off four wins and a draw in five matches since dropping their Concacaf final-round qualifying opener 2-1 at Honduras last February. Costa Rica stayed on the heels of the US with a 2-0 home victory over Panama, giving the Ticos three wins and two drawn in six matches and setting up a showdown for first when the US team visits Costa Rica when qualifying resumes on September 6. The region's top three teams advance to next year's World Cup Finals in Brazil while the fourth-place team meets New Zealand to decide another berth.

Anti-GMO Quack: And- as a final note, by claiming its a cry wolf scenario- it's beyond insulting. There are 60 countries world wide with restrictions on GMO's in one form or another, including Italy, Austria, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Portugal, Greece, Spain, UK, Australia, Norway, New Zealand, Thailand, Phlippines, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Algeria, Brazil, Paraguay, and GASP- Even Switzerland, the GM science capital of the world. Me: I fail to see why anti-GMO proponents believe that this is somehow a valid point of contention. Legislative bodies in democratically elected governments do not decide what is or isn't scientifically valid. Scientists do. Creationism would be taught in public schools here in the United States if it didn't violate the First Amendment. You don't get to legislate the truth, and when the vast majority of practicing scientists within this field, all of whom are going off of the same substantiated data, state that GMOs aren't harmful - then the onus shifts to the person who says the ...
