Jamie Lynne Grumet is a wife as well as the mother of two sons. Jamie developed HELLP Syndrome during her pregnancy in 2008. If it were not for the life saving measures available to her, she and her son would have died. Jamie and her husband adopted their oldest child in 2010 from Sidama, Ethiopia. Upon learning about the lack of maternal healthcare and importance of family preservation, Jamie brought together a passionate group of people to start the Fayye Foundation.
She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patron of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans, and the downtrodden, and she listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats, and rulers. Isis is often depicted as the mother of Horus, the hawk-headed god of war and protection (although in some traditions Horus's mother was Hathor), and she is depicted suckling him in an attitude similar to that of the Virgin Mary with the Child Jesus. Isis is also known as protector of the dead and goddess of children.
Thus he became a symbol of majesty and power as well as the model of the pharaohs. The Pharaohs were said to be Horus in human form.
Its about the Cricket "sports" player Sachin Tendulkar
But lets focus on the other kind of cricket, the insect.
Companion of the Summer days, and the Sirius arising in the flooding of the Nile. The Cricket was immortalized with the wooden boy Pinocchio becoming a man
The SUN/SON of God, who became wooden like the Tree of Good and Evil that he partook can soon wean from his Mother to begin his rule.
Known as Narrative Networks, it seeks to "understand how narratives influence human thoughts and behaviour, then apply those findings to a security context in order to address security challenges such as radicalization, violent social mobilization, insurgency and terrorism, and conflict prevention and resolution," says William Casebeer, the Darpa official leading the work. The idea is straightforward: scientists have long known that narratives exert a powerful force on the human mind, helping to shape people's concept of individual and group identities, even motivating them to conduct violent acts. Some bloggers and people posting on Twitter have suggested the Pentagon is seeking to elevate brainwashing to a science. "Darpa looking to master propaganda via Narrative Networks,'" read the headline of a report on the science news website Phys.org, for example, alongside countless similar blog posts and tweets.
Law enforcement officers in Southern California have launched a massive search in rugged mountain terrain for a missing FBI agent who was said to be despondent and possibly suicidal. About 100 FBI agents, 40 sheriff's department rescuers and a dozen local police officers participated in the search for Los Angeles-based Special Agent Stephen Ivens, who remained missing late Saturday. He was described as an avid hiker and runner. FBI Special Agent Steve Gomez said dogs had tracked Ivens' scent toward the rugged Verdugo Mountains, east of Burbank, but searchers were fanning out throughout Los Angeles County. Ivens, 35, was last seen by family members Thursday evening, KABC-TV reported (http://bit.ly/K6vDfr). He left his Burbank home the next morning on foot and had not been seen since, FBI officials said at a news conference. Ivens was distraught and authorities fear he may have harmed himself, according to KABC-TV. Officials did not say why Ivens was distraught. A search of his home did not turn up his handgun and police believe he may have taken it with him. Ivens was described by FBI colleagues as well liked. Married with a one-year-old child, he has been working for the FBI for the past three years in the national security area. Prior to that, he worked as a Los Angeles police officer for eight years. Gomez told reporters that foul play was not suspected and Ivens was not believed to pose a threat to other
The pilot and I also spoke about a scandal that occurred in the wake of the crash. A flight attendant working for Aeroflot, Russia's biggest and best airline, had carelessly tweeted on the subject: "What, a Superjet came down? HAHAHA! That's a POS! Too bad this didn't happen at Aeroflot, [we'd] have one less of them, and maybe the rest of them would get sold back to someone!"
European plane maker, Airbus Military reaffirmed its commitment to assist Indonesian state aircraft maker PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) in its restructuring process, local media reported Wednesday. The commitment was confirmed by Airbus Military CEO Domingo Urena-Raso to reporters after meeting Indonesian Defense Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro Tuesday.
The C-295 is a stretched version of the CN-235, which was co- designed and co-produced by CASA (the predecessor of EADS CASA which then became Airbus Military) and PT DI’s predecessor, Industri Pesawat Terbang Nusantara (IPTN).
I just finished listening to the NAS from Thursday the 10th. I had a comment I wanted to make regarding your statement on LGBT and "rights".
The first fundamental flaw most people make is a misunderstanding between what a "right" and a "privilege" is.
A right is something that justly belongs to someone and creates a claim against those who would deprive one of that right. One person’s right implies an equivalent duty in others not to interfere unjustly with that right. In terms of these fundamental rights (called “natural rights", "God Given"), we are all equal—no one has more and no one less. They don’t come from government. Government exists to secure our rights.
A privilege is something that is granted too you. You must ask for permission and someone, or something has the ability to deny you that privilege.
If you have to ask for permission it is not a "RIGHT", it is a "PRIVILEGE". Now, that being the case...
Marriage to begin with is not a right, regardless of who is getting married. If a man wants to marry a woman they apply for a marriage license / certificate, and the state grants them that privilege. The entire marriage licensing through the state was original created so the state could DENY THE PRIVILEGE of enter-racial couples from being married... They would not recognize it.
The LGBT community does not want "equal rights", as they are already equal across the board, the law in this instance no longer discriminates as any man can marry any woman... Yes, gay people can get married, they just have to marry someone of the opposite sex. They want more privileges recognized by the state.
They would have an actual case saying their rights were being infringed if someone or something was preventing them from living together, or from doing as they pleased as long as they were not infringing on someone else's rights.
If you're interested in further exploring the differences between rights and privileges I encourage you to check out some videos by Michael Badnarik, here is one of his shorter videos on the subject. (http://youtu.be/912IS3dpC3Y).
It's the message. "Phobic" is used by the general public to indicate an irrational fear.
Does the main stream media refer to homosexuals as heterophobic? No. Calling someone heterophobic would imply that there is something wrong with that person, that they need to change. So why use a word with such a negative message to describe people who are opposed to same sex marriage?
Calling someone who is opposed to same sex marriage homophobic is equivalent to "the science is in" way of thinking about climate change. You can't challenge climate change because the science is in and you can't challenge homosexuality or same sex marriage because the scientists have decided it is good.
: irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals
A fairly meaningless phrase I am hearing constantly (and in your speech) is "turns out". Keep an eye on it.
A senior commander in the rebel Lord's Resistance Army has been captured by the Ugandan army, a spokesman has said. Caesar Achellam was seized on Saturday following a struggle between Ugandan soldiers and a group of 30 rebels. The commander, whom Ugandan officials say is a top rebel military strategist, was captured in the Central African Republic, one of several nations where the Ugandan-led LRA operates. The most notorious wanted LRA leader is war crimes suspect Joseph Kony
In reality, governments spend in bad times and then spend more in good times. So the disagreement may not really be over economics, but over politics. This is a sad state of affairs because what many people are worrying about, at root, is whether democracy has become part of the problem. After all, politicians have gotten elected over the last four decades in the West by promising voters more benefits, more pensions and more health care. The question is, can they get elected offering less? That's what stops many Europeans from abandoning austerity and embracing another round of stimulus spending. And I think these worries are shared by many in the United States as well.
But the uphill battles and enormous challenges that await Haitians -- long-term challenges that are not resolved with a year or two of humanitarian assistance -- should not blind us to the often significant and very real progress that has been achieved in the last two years. These are achievements to which many have contributed: countless ordinary Haitians, civil society organisations, weakened yet still functioning government institutions, the private sector and Haiti's-many international partners.
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is considering building a hotel and conference centre in Haiti on part of a $10.5 million property that it bought after the 2010 earthquake.
The hope is that profits could sustain the work of Haiti's local Red Cross in the coming years, the head of the international group's Haitian delegation said Monday.
The 10-acre compound, known as the "Hilton Property," was purchased from Comme Il Faut, Haiti's local cigarette company, in the months after the quake, Eduard Tschan told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.
The charity paid in a single payment, using funds donated by national Red Cross agencies for quake recovery.
At the time, Haiti's recovery was the largest operation in the organisation's history, with 3,000 people working here.
Now that its work is winding down, the International Red Cross is putting together an exit strategy and as part of that process is trying to figure out what to do with this property.
TROU DU NORD, Haiti--- Its capital is blighted with earthquake rubble. Its countryside is shorn of trees, chopped down for fuel. And yet, Haiti's land may hold the key to relieving centuries of poverty, disaster and disease: There is gold hidden in its hills -- and silver and copper, too. A flurry of exploratory drilling in the past year has found precious metals worth potentially $20 billion deep below the tropical ridges in the country's northeastern mountains. Now, a mining company is drilling around the clock to determine how to get those metals out.
Until now, few Haitians have known about this buried treasure. Mining camps are unmarked, and the work is being done miles up dirt roads near remote villages, on the opposite side of the country from the capital. But U.S. and Canadian investors have spent more than $30 million in recent years on everything from exploratory drilling to camps for workers, new roads, offices and laboratory studies of samples. Actual mining could be under way in five years
Mr. Dimon taped an interview with NBC's David Gregory on Wednesday, the day before he revealed on a conference call that JPMorgan had sustained $2 billion in losses from a series of wrong-footed trades in the firm's chief investment office. Mr. Dimon knew about the losses when he taped the interview, which was held in Ohio, but because of disclosure rules, he was unable to speak about them at the time. Mr. Dimon arrived at an NBC studio at Rockefeller Center on Friday afternoon to retape his interview for the show in light of the losses, according to a person with knowledge of the situation who was not authorized to speak on the record. This week happens to be the first time that Mr. Dimon has ever appeared on "Meet the Press," NBC's signature public affairs program. It's relatively rare for the program to have an interview with a Wall Street chief executive. NBC had billed it in advance as a special discussion on the economy and politics.
The idea came about during a Sky Radio show on how the Ecuadorian president was responding to the country's massive debt. He started a simple financial audit of sovereign debt, and came to the conclusion that other countries were using Ecuador as a slave, like Argentina and many other countries before. The administration forced a haircut of 70% on its creditors.
Republican presidential hopeful Rep. Ron Paul certainly wants to end the Federal Reserve. But he also has to eat breakfast. One day after chairing a hearing on proposals to abolish or overhaul the central bank, the Texan congressman sat down for the first meal of the day Wednesday with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, the lawmaker confirmed in a brief interview at the Capitol. The decision to meet for breakfast at the Fed was "mutual," said Mr. Paul, who last year introduced a bill to eliminate the central bank. The Fed chief and lawmaker had "sort of an open discussion," Mr. Paul said, while declining to provide any details of the conversation. "It was off the record," he said. The Fed declined to comment on the meeting. Wednesday's visit to the Fed's Washington headquarters was not the first for Mr. Paul, who has said previously he dined at the central bank with former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. Nor is it unusual for Mr. Bernanke to play host to lawmakers, including those proposing to refashion the Fed. The Fed chief had breakfast in February with Rep. Kevin Brady (R., Texas) who earlier this year introduced a bill that would narrow the Fed's mandate to focus solely on price stability. Currently, the central bank has a dual mandate that also requires it to strive for maximum employment. Still, Wednesday's breakfast brought together two figures who publicly agree on very little. A longtime critic of paper currency and fan of the gold standard, Mr. Paul's fiery Fed-bashing has enthused his campaign trail supporters, who often start rallies with loud chants of "end the Fed!" Mr. Bernanke, meanwhile, dedicated a significant chunk of his first lecture at George Washington University in March to enumerating the flaws associated with a system in which the dollar is valued at a fixed price per unit of gold. So did Wednesday's meeting overturn any deep-set beliefs? "He's for the gold standard now," joked Mr. Paul.
The report comes after a four-year campaign by the family of Mumbai bomb victim Will Pike, 31, who was left disabled. Along with other British victims of the Mumbai attacks – and of those in Bali, Turkey and Egypt – Pike was left without financial help to cope with his injuries.
Few states outside western Europe have satisfactory compensation systems, including the US, although Washington did set up a special scheme to compensate 9/11 victims.
The report will say that full and effective reparation should include, as appropriate, restitution, compensation and rehabilitation.
It also says states should consider whether to legislate to prohibit the sale or marketing of life assurance policies that contain an exclusion for deaths that result from acts of terrorism.
In the UK, victims of terrorism can apply for compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority. Payments range from £1,000 to £500,000. However, while the UK has a system in place, survivors of the 7/7 attacks have complained of long delays.
Emergency services last night called off searches at the property on Ridgehill Avenue, Intake, Sheffield, where the chemicals were found.
Searches are expected to continue until this afternoon when it will be decided whether it is safe for residents to return to their homes.
A local man has been arrested for allegedly attempting to produce class A drugs and under the Explosives Act.
A police spokesman said: "The safety of the public is of paramount importance. Everyone evacuated has been found somewhere to stay overnight."
'BOMB' SOUND HEARD IN CONTROLLED BLAST
DOZENS of people were evacuated from their homes for hours as Army experts and emergency services carried out a controlled explosion on chemicals that sounded like a 'bomb'.
A loud bang was heard as the explosion was made by a bomb disposal squad on Ridgehill Avenue, Intake, Sheffield, at about 1.30pm yesterday to safely dispose of the 'potentially hazardous' chemicals.
Hundreds of motorists and Supertram passengers were also affected as Ridgeway Road - a tram route and part of the outer ring road - was also shut for about a mile.
It was the second time families had been evacuated in just two days after chemicals were first found on Thursday.
A detailed follow-up search had found more of the materials.
Sky news today- Controlled explosion at garage block in Cheltenham 2 arrested on terror charges, over a hundred residents evacuated, a rest center has been set up where care staff will be on duty to provide information and advice on medication and health concerns. Also found the same sort of "move citizens to the gathering center operation" in Epsom Avenue Sale over a glass bottle with some nails in it and they closed the A19 to do a controlled explosion on a grenade also a few others on the coast all this month. Please talk about this Adam, nobody else is and you know when they have the drills they plan to blow shit up or worse, they kept people for three days here in Sheffield.
See you all in the facility, Nathan still on welfare.
However, something odd appeared in the aftermath. A brochure was discovered, where the plaintiff's representative in the case -- a professor Visser -- offered commercial courses in anti-piracy, together with the judge, Chris Hensen. The plaintiff and judge were running a commercial enterprise together, one that had a direct bearing on the subject matter of the case. Let me take that once more, for this is truly mind-boggling: not only was the plaintiff and judge personally and closely acquainted, the plaintiff in a controversial copyright monopoly case was running a commercial anti-piracy outfit together with the judge in the case. Money was involved. Commercial interest was involved. The judge was, as it appears from this brochure for the quite expensive course, getting money. Shortly after the case. In a directly related matter together with the plaintiff. That makes the judge not only corrupt, but textbook corrupt.
Tests on an electronic voting machine that recorded shockingly high numbers of extra votes in the 2010 election show that overheating may have caused upwards of 30 percent of the votes in a South Bronx voting precinct to go uncounted.
WNYC first reported on the issue in December 2011, when it was found that tens of thousands of votes in the 2010 elections went uncounted because electronic voting machines counted more than one vote in a race.
A review by the state Board of Election and the electronic voting machines' manufacturer ES&S found that these "over votes," as they're called, were due to a machine error. In the report issued by ES&S, when the machine used in the South Bronx overheated, ballots run during a test began coming back with errors.
"After lunch [when the machine was idle for about an hour] almost every ballot was read incorrectly, in all orientations, even ballots that had read correctly just before lunch," the ES&S report said.
A Swedish paper makes the observation that Obama looks like a midget in the chair despite his six-foot-plus stature.- When comparing the size of the surrounding people in the photo to Obama, the photo certainly gives the impression that Obama's head (or possibly the entire body) was placed into the photo and resized a tad too small.-

GUANT√ĀNAMO BAY, Cuba -- Lawyers for five men charged before a military commission with conspiring in the attacks of Sept. 11 complained on Sunday that the process was rigged to lead to the execution of their clients, and they offered new details and explanations for a sometimes chaotic daylong arraignment on Saturday.
"The Obama administration and many of the un-elected 'czars,' either directly or indirectly, are engaged in covert activities with the occupy movement, various labor protests, and other subversive activities inside the U.S.," stated my source. Using untracked campaign funds, they are paying people to infiltrate the various movements to cause physical destruction of property and disrupt commerce. That began last year, but has increased ten-fold already this year," stated this source. He added that they are using some lower level DHS agents to make the payments under the context of tracking subversives, but they are the unwitting subversives. "It's like Fast & Furious" but in the social realm," he added.
"Obama is using some high profile people as pawns to foment the revolution. I heard several times through very credible sources that [Louis] Farrakhan is on the CIA payroll. Other have been named as well, but I'm not prepared to identify them yet. Farrakhan is to coordinate the Blacks and the Muslims to prepare for riots this summer, using any means necessary."
"Mentioned at the meeting Saturday were methods to use pawns to simulate the rioting in the Arab Spring countries, but to the benefit of this administration. A controlled chaos thing," stated my source. They envision rioting starting in the urban areas first, such as New York and other major cities, followed by a disruption of business and commerce. This will allow the DHS to mobilize their various teams into the streets of America without objection of the people," stated my source.
"They want to restrict travel, if not through high energy prices, then by checkpoints and curfews mandated by rioting and unrest. They understand we are the most well-armed nation in the world, yet they are aware of our vulnerabilities and intend to fully exploit them," he added. The whole purpose is to keep Obama in office for another term, no matter how unpopular he is, as he is not finished changing our country from a Constitutional Republic. This is the run-up to the 2012 elections, or perhaps causing enough chaos to delay them - indefinitely."
One statement that rattled me more than anything was that a great number of those already in power, whether in appointed or elected positions, actually want to see Obama stay in power, according to this source. "This is what we've been working toward and we're closer now than we've ever been. If we lose now, we might not have another chance."
According to Fort Bend County, Texas, chief fire investigator Robert Baker, the Fisker Karma started the fire that spread to the house.
"Yes, the Karma was the origin of the fire, but what exactly caused that we don't know at this time," he said. The car was a complete loss.
You'll have to forgive the lateness but I just got around to reading The Chronicle's recent piece on the young guns of black studies. If ever there were a case for eliminating the discipline, the sidebar explaining some of the dissertations being offered by the best and the brightest of black-studies graduate students has made it. What a collection of left-wing victimization claptrap. The best that can be said of these topics is that they're so irrelevant no one will ever look at them. That's what I would say about Ruth Hayes' dissertation, "'So I Could Be Easeful': Black Women's Authoritative Knowledge on Childbirth." It began because she "noticed that nonwhite women's experiences were largely absent from natural-birth literature, which led me to look into historical black midwifery." How could we overlook the nonwhite experience in "natural birth literature," whatever the heck that is? It's scandalous and clearly a sign that racism is alive and well in America, not to mention academia.
Police chiefs are calling on users of online social networking sites to be the "eyes and ears" of officers to help combat the menace of 'trolls' who bully or abuse via the web. Police forces across the UK are investing more funds into making sure they are plugged into sites like Twitter and Facebook but their nature means they are having to rely on users to self-regulate or to alert the authorities to criminal behaviour. The lead for the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) on e-crime prevention, Chief Constable Stuart Hyde, said the police did not have the resources to pro-actively target offenders.
Acpo does not believe further legislation is needed to tackle cyber-bullying and trolling. Two of the main acts used are the Malicious Communications Act 1988 and the Communications Act 2003. Stacey was convicted under the Public Order Act 1986 – which could be used whether the comments were made online or on the street.
In addition to the classroom training, we use on-the-job training to keep our security officers' skills sharp. Through the daily use of a Threat Image Projection (TIP) software program, our security officers are routinely tested on their ability to detect weapons and explosives by x-ray. Potential threats, including guns and explosives, are projected onto x-ray images of carry-on bags so our security officers remain focused and attentive.
These tests allow us to evaluate individual performance and shape our training programs appropriately. Because our x-ray equipment is linked to a vast internal network, every airport and x-ray monitor receives automatic image updates from the technology lab. This link allows us to quickly deploy the latest intelligence on potential and emerging threats to security officers across the nation.
British intelligence played a central role in the undercover operation to foil an underwear bomb plot involving al Qaeda's Yemeni offshoot, counterterrorism sources told Reuters. The undercover informant in the plot linked to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, was a British citizen, possibly of Saudi origin, the sources said on condition of anonymity. The informant was working in cooperation with Britain's two principal spy agencies. U.S. officials revealed publicly on Monday that AQAP tried to arm a suicide bomber with a non-metallic device that was an upgraded version of an "underwear bomb" that was carried on to a Detroit-bound plane on Christmas Day 2009, but failed to detonate. The device that authorities seized in the undercover operation contained what was intended to be a more reliable detonating mechanism, counterterrorism officials said. U.S. officials said earlier this week that the latest plot was foiled by the CIA and allied foreign intelligence services, without identifying the allies. British authorities put heavy pressure on the Obama administration not to disclose Britain's role in the investigation. Several U.S. media outlets reported that Saudi Arabia was the key partner in the operation.
Hundreds of Alaska Airlines flight attendants say their new uniforms are making them ill.The attendants have complained that the outfits, which may be contaminated with a toxic chemical, have caused itching, hair loss and other unpleasant reactions.
In a letter to the company's president, union leaders representing Alaska Airlines employees demanded that the uniforms are changed.
Players who used a pistol-shaped controller in a shooting video game with human targets had 99 percent more completed head shots to the mannequin than did participants who played other video games, as well as 33 percent more shots that hit other parts of the body.
In addition, the study found that participants who reported habitual playing of violent shooting games also were more accurate than others when shooting at the mannequin, and made more head shots.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center, which focuses on privacy and civil liberties, sought communications between Google and the NSA, which conducts worldwide electronic surveillance and protects the U.S. government from such spying. But the NSA refused to confirm or deny whether it had any relationship with Google. The NSA argued that doing so could make U.S. government information systems vulnerable to attack. A federal district court judge sided with the NSA last year, and on Friday, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upheld the ruling.
Maj. Gen. Steven Smith, chief of the Army Cyber Directorate, said the software was one of his chief priorities, joking that it would take the place of a lower-tech solution: "A guy with a large bat behind every user as they go to search the Internet."
"Now we've been in the news -- I don't know if you've seen it -- with a little insider threat issue," Smith continued.
Smith did not mention Pfc. Bradley Manning by name. However, the effort comes in the wake of the former intelligence analyst's alleged leak of hundreds of thousands of pages of classified documents to the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks in 2009 and 2010. Manning faces a military trial on 22 counts, including aiding the enemy.
According to Smith, the Army will soon shop for software pre-programmed to detect a user's abnormal behavior and record it, catching malicious insiders in the act. Though it is unclear how broadly the Army plans to adopt the program, the Army has more than 900,000 users on its computers.
The Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) arm of DoHS has highlighted an "active series of cyber intrusions", with spear-phishing attacks targeting natural gas pipeline sector companies.
Analysis of the malware connected to the cybers attacks discovered has apparently identified the attacks as a part of a single campaign. -It is thought that the campaign has been ongoing since December 2011.
Heads up! USociopaths are attacking themselves again so they can blame Anonymous and/or Iran and pass psycho CISPA: Alerts say major cyber attack aimed at gas pipeline industry --Intrusions aimed at control systems, agency of Homeland Security warns 06 May 2012 A major cyber attack is currently under way aimed squarely at computer networks belonging to US natural gas pipeline companies, according to alerts issued to the industry by the US Department of Homeland Security. At least three confidential "amber" alerts -- the second most sensitive next to "red" -- were issued by DHS beginning March 29, all warning of a "gas pipeline sector cyber intrusion campaign" against multiple pipeline companies. But the wave of cyber attacks, which apparently began four months ago -- and may also affect Canadian natural gas pipeline companies [Yeah, right!] -- is continuing. That fact was reaffirmed late Friday in a public, albeit less detailed, "incident response" report from the Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT), an arm of DHS based in Idaho Falls.
While conceding that there are "a number of serious unresolved human rights issues" in the nation, the US State Department announced today that President Obama has signed off on a resumption of weapons sales to Bahrain. The statement did not provide a total value of the weapons being sent to Bahrain, but insisted that the new weapons would not be used for "crowd control." US weapons have been used heavily by Bahrain and allies in cracking down on pro-democracy protesters since last year.
The State Department said Bahrain's government had taken steps to implement reforms but that "the country is becoming increasingly polarized and much work remains to be done." "We are concerned about excessive use of force and tear gas by police. At the same time, we are concerned by the almost daily use of violence by some protesters," the statement said, urging both sides to refrain from incitement. The Obama administration has been under pressure to stick by Bahrain's ruling family, notably from Sunni-led Saudi Arabia and other members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, in the face of protests by the country's Shi'ites. The original $53 million sale proposal included 44 Humvee armored vehicles and several hundred TOW missiles along with associated equipment. Prime contractors would be privately held AM General and Raytheon Co.
A district court judge in Virginia dismissed drunk driving charges against former FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt on Thursday. The story was first reported in The Washington Post. A video of the police stopping Babbitt was played in court and the judge ruled that he was pulled over on a "mere hunch" by the police officer. Babbitt had made a normal and legal turn into the driveway of a business and did not drive on the wrong side of the road as the police officer reported in his criminal complaint after the incident occurred last December. An initial blood alcohol test showed the Babbitt was below the legal limit but prosecutors claimed to have additional tests that showed otherwise. But the case was dismissed before any blood alcohol evidence was introduced because the video of the stop showed Babbitt to be driving in a normal fashion and breaking no laws, the Post reported.
Air strikes pounded Yemen's Abyan Province today, with a number of strikes being carried out by US drones. Overall 17 people were killed. Yemeni officials claimed all the dead were "al-Qaeda," but the bulk of the deaths were in Zinjibar, which is currently under the control of Ansar al-Sharia, not al-Qaeda. Yemen's government rarely acknowledges the distinction in public comments. US officials, as usual, provided no comment on the strikes or the deaths, but have been known to have carried out a significant portion of the strikes in Abyan over the past several months, backing the government of Maj. Gen. Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
De oliemaatschappijen Shell en Chevron hebben het contract gekregen voor de ontwikkeling van twee schaliegasprojecten in Oekra√Įne. Dat maakte de Oekra√Įense premier Mykola Azarov bekend. De velden zullen naar verwachting in 2020 tot wel 10 procent van het gasgebruik van Oekra√Įne gaan produceren. De investering bedraagt minstens 370 miljoen dollar (286 miljoen euro), maar dit bedrag kan nog verder stijgen, aldus een verklaring. De winning van gas uit rotslagen bij beide velden moet op haar vroegst beginnen in 2018. De totale hoeveelheid winbaar gas uit de twee velden wordt door Oekra√Įne geschat op wel 7 biljoen kubieke meter.
1).Colombia: the Cano Limon-Covenas oil pipeline, which moves oil from the Arauca region to the port of Covenas, was bombed, disrupting operations. FARC is suspected for the attack. According to the BBC via the Colombian Ministry of Defense: "The group is to blame for 84 attacks against pipelines last year, a hefty increase from the 31 attacks they allegedly carried out in 2010."
Syria says thwarts attempted 1,200 kg car bomb (Reuters) - Syrian forces foiled an attempted suicide car bombing in the northern city of Aleppo on Friday, state television said, a day after two bombs in the capital killed at least 55 people. The security forces killed the bomber, who had 1,200 kg of explosives in the car, it said.
The Pentagon announced Tuesday it is sending U.S. troops back to Yemen to train Yemeni security forces in a final indication that Washington has been successful in maintaining the status quo, despite a still-active protest movement vying for reform.
"We have begun to reintroduce small numbers of trainers into Yemen," a Pentagon spokesman, Navy Capt. John Kirby, told reporters. This follows the reintroduction of military aid the Obama administration secured back in March.
Russia said Thursday that it had foiled a plot to attack the city of Sochi before and during the 2014 Winter Olympics, saying its agents discovered caches of weapons that included grenade launchers and surface-to-air missiles. Government security officials blamed Chechen separatists and neighboring Georgia in the plot. Georgian officials denied any links with the militants and called the accusations a sign of Moscow's "severe paranoia." Russia's National Antiterrorism Committee said the F.S.B., the K.G.B.'s successor, discovered 10 caches of weapons and ammunition last week in Abkhazia, a breakaway region in Georgia near Sochi. The F.S.B. said it suspected that the plans were the work of the Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov, who it claims has close ties to Georgia's secret service. Georgia said it had no links to Mr. Umarov.

The head of the Connyland wildlife park has confirmed a newspaper report suggesting that two dolphins who died after a rave near the zoo last November may have been given a heroin substitute by party-goers.
Connyland chief Erich Brandenberger told Swiss media the park has seen the veterinary report that formed the basis of the poisoning claims laid out in the Sunday edition of the NZZ newspaper.
A toxicology report leaked over the weekend suggests that the two dolphins, Shadow and Chelmers, did not die as a result of the antibiotics administered by their vets as has previously been alleged.
Tests showed that a substance called Buprenorphin, which is used a heroin substitute, was found in the urine of the two dolphins that died at the park last November, online news site 20 Minuten reported.-
"Opiates are extremely dangerous for underwater mammals and would never be used in any legitimate treatment," dolphin expert Cornelis van Elk, told the Daily Mail news online.
Seventeen months after an American-registered DC9 airliner was busted with 5.5 tons of cocaine, a major international scandal is brewing over a second drug trafficking incident in Mexico's Yucatan involving an American-registered jet owned by a dummy front company of the kind usually associated with the CIA.
A weekend visit to "Donna Blue Aircraft Inc" of Coconut Beach FL., the company which FAA records show owned the Gulfstream II business jet (N987SA) which crash-landed with 3.7 tons of cocaine aboard in Mexico's Yucatan two weeks ago, has revealed that the company's listed address is an empty office suite with a blank sign out front.
There was no sign of Donna Blue Aircraft, Inc., at the address listed at the Florida Dept. of Corporations, 4811 Lyons Technology Parkway #8 in Coconut Beach FL. .......
However, there were, oddly enough, a half-dozen unmarked police cars parked directly in front of the empty suite.
Last week, Bjart Berge headed to his local Nordea branch in Stavanger city centre to deposit his remaining dollars after returning from a trip to the United States, only to be told the bank no longer handles cash of any kind over the counter, newspaper Bergens Tidende reports.
"I thought it was an April Fool's joke; I couldn't believe it was true," Berge told the newspaper.
The Stavanger branch stopped taking cash on May 1st, bringing it in line with company policy. Of Nordea's 98 branches in Norway, only nine still handle cash.
Nordea spokesman Thomas Sevang explained that the bank was in the process of automating all its cash services and was installing new machines for withdrawing and depositing cash across its network.
"He [Berge] has encountered the bank of the future," said Sevang.
But in the bank of the present, none of the deposit machines take dollars, and the bank was not able to say when this would become possible.
"You can take money out of an ATM in either Norwegian or foreign currency," said Berge. -
"The same should apply for deposits. But when that possibility doesn't exist, it's a bit early to cut the umbilical cord."
But earlier that day, Apatow, who'd experienced a recent spike in his blood pressure, had a nuclear stress test at Cardiology Associates of Fairfield County in Trumbull. In the test, a small amount of a radioactive material is injected into the veins and used to help track blood flow to the-heart.
Though the amount of radioactive material used in the test is relatively low -- equal to a few X-rays or a diagnostic CT scan -- it was enough to set off a radioactivity detector in the state police car. The detectors are used to help identify potential terror-threats.
"I asked the officer `What seems to be the problem?' " Apatow said. "He said `You've been flagged as a radioactive-car.' "
Nuclear power was outlawed in Italy in a referendum in 1987 following the Chernobyl disaster and attempts by the last government of Silvio Berlusconi to revive the sector were voted down in another referendum last year.
Finmeccanica chief executive Giuseppe Orsi said that if the attack was indeed political this would be "an alarm bell not to be understimated."
He warned of "dangers of social destabilisation linked to the current economic difficulties and the risk of manipulation for ideological ends.
"An attack against the leadership of a highly technological company... is an insidious rejection of the need for modernisation," he said.
Finmeccanica, he added, was key to "Italy's residual hopes of playing a primary role on global markets in the strategic hi-tech sector."
Just wanted to share this information with you guys.
My wife is a nurse, and recently had to complete her education credits, and yearly hospital requirements. She had to sit through a Power Point on "bariatric sensitivity training" to learn how not to offend fat people.On the list of insensitive things you could say are, "You have a pretty face" and "Would you like a glass of water" (this would imply that they shouldn't drink things with calories). Maybe one day asking someone if they want some water will be classified as a hate crime.
According to-an informal discussion letter the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued in August 2011, "paruresis" -- more commonly known as "shy bladder syndrome" -- qualifies as a disability-under the amended Americans with Disabilities Act.
The-International Paruresis Association-defines-the odd affliction as the "inability to urinate with others present." The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the gold-standard of psychiatrists,-categorizes it as a social phobia that affects roughly seven percent of the population -- approximately 17 million Americans.
The BBC's Raphael Tenthani in Blantyre says that many shops had run out of staple foods such as sugar, cooking oil and bread by the end of Monday.
Researchers at the University of Michigan haven't tweaked the Kinect sensor in anyway, but they're using the technology for unconventional means. They've brought the Kinect into the classroom. Don't get too excited about the Kinect and gaming being used as educational tools just yet. The researchers are actually hoping that the Kinect can be used to help diagnose autism in kids. The Kinect's motion sensor can be used to observe children and pick up on whether they exhibit the symptoms of autism through movement--either being too hyperactive or too still. Generally, diagnosing autism is a long process, as it involves doctors observing a child's behavior over a long period of time. The Kinect would be a useful tool in helping with diagnosis: "The idea is not that we are going to replace the diagnosis, but we are going to bring diagnosis to everybody," Guillermo Sapiro, University of Minnesota researcher, says. "The same way a good teacher flags a problem child, the system will do automatic flagging and say, 'Hey, this kid needs to see an expert'."
In a series of votes, a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel recommended approval of the daily pill Truvada for healthy people who are at high risk of contracting HIV, including gay and bisexual men and heterosexual couples with one HIV-positive partner.
The FDA is not required to follow the panel's advice, though it usually does. A final decision is expected by June 15.
Extreme drug-resistant strains of TB have now been found in 70 countries, and doctors in India reported four patients this year, who did not respond to any drugs at all. Doctors in Iran and Italy have also found patients who are apparently resistant to all drugs. "What we are seeing worldwide is the emergence of strains of the bacillus causing tuberculosis that are resistant to most of the drugs we have available," the Independent quoted Mario Raviglione, director of the WHO's Stop TB campaign, as saying. The rate of TB deaths had declined drastically -- by 40 per cent between 1990 and 2000 -- after a worldwide health campaign, which was particularly successful in China. But the emergence of drug-resistant strains threatens to arrest progress and jeopardises the WHO's goal of eradicating the disease as a public health problem by 2050. Drug resistance is increasing as doctors are failing to prescribe the right number of drugs or because patients do not succeed in finishing the course of antibiotics. In certain cases public clinics run out of stock, but increasingly, according to Dr Raviglione, private sector practitioners are to be blamed.-In India, which has the highest prevalence of TB in the world, 50-70 per cent of patients refer to private doctors when they begin coughing. "They don't want to queue in public clinics that are overwhelmed and congested. But the problem with private practitioners is you don't know who you are meeting and sometimes these people are just incompetent," he said. Instead of prescribing the four-drug, six-month regime recommended by the WHO, private clinics prescribe either too many drugs, "which is a waste of money and increases toxicity", or too few, which, Dr Raviglione said, increases drug resistance.
This is from a medical text pathologists refer to as somewhat difinitive. Its an older edition but the numbers still hold true. The current US numbers are still coming but my feeling is they may be skewed.
If you can't read anything let me know but the bottom line is that low grade HPV resolves 60% of the time on its own and only progresses to invasive cancer 1% of the time.
The other important thing to remember is that HPV is not the only cause of cervical cancer
Messrs. Dvorak and Curry,
Here's another view about the HPV shots from the military aspect.
As a listener of NA and being in the military, there is one time of year where I hate my job choice and that is shot season. The military, unlike any other profession has the ability to put you in jail, yes Fort Leavenworth, for refusing certain shots. Thankfully, HPV was not one of them but all the animal flu shots are and many other ones. Of course they are not generic and are usually made by GSK or Merck, I have them check the packaging.
For the HPV specifically, last year (and I think the military is their test ground because we can't say no most of the time) they offered me the HPV shot. Now the nurse who is administering the shot sold it as a way of preventing penis cancer. I heard this, and knew that the probability of getting penis cancer is extremely low versus the higher probability of being fucked up by some random GSK produced shot, so I said no. Of course, I started "hitting the nurse in the mouth" (figuratively of course) about big pharma and the panics they start to push their products. She really didn't know anything expect that someone told her to push the shot for whatever reason.
But here's the kicker. I started making a scene and telling people around me not to get the shot and I got about 5 people to say no. BUT if i would not of said anything they would have been obedient slaves and thought... 'penis cancer!?!!? hell yea give me the shot'. I'm sure about 80% of the people did that.
The thing that got me upset is that the nurse really had no idea. She was just pushing the shot on all these slaves.
Hopefully this anecdote helps with your HPV deconstruction work.
These four - human papillomaviruses, Helicobacter pylori and hepatitis B and C viruses - account for 1.9m cases of cervical, gut and liver cancers.
A researcher in the US has died of a disease caused by the bacteria he was studying. The tragedy highlights the dangers of research on human respiratory germs. Research on airborne mutants of H5N1 bird flu is currently under an indefinite moratorium, partly over fears of just such laboratory infections.
Tragically, a vaccine that could have saved him, developed by another group of researchers, is only a few months away. Swiss-based company Novartis expects to license Bexsero, the first general vaccine against serogroup B, later this year. Other serogroup B vaccines are also in the works.
Prescriptions of Ritalin for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have quadrupled in a decade, prompting fears it is being pushed on children at the expense of alternative treatments and without appreciation of long-term effects.
Figures released by the NHS business services authority to the Liberal Democrat MP Tessa Munt reveal the number of prescriptions of methylphenidate hydrochloride, the generic name for Ritalin, rose in England from 158,000 in 1999 to 661,463 in 2010.
ESA had hoped to keep Envisat going until its seven replacements, the so-called Sentinel satellites, start being launched in 2013.
Their launch “has become even more urgent to ensure the continuity of data to users, improve the management of the environment, understand and mitigate the effects of climate change and ensure civil security,” said ESA.
The cause of the communications failure has not been established.
"Following rigorous attempts to re-establish contact and the investigation of failure scenarios, the end of the mission is being declared," the agency said in a statement.
"Envisat had already operated for double its planned lifetime, making it well overdue for retirement."
Ok so this Greenberg / Zuckerberg thing is getting weirder by the second. A Jacob Greenberg was arrested for possession of Marijuana and this mugshot was taken. It was later revealed that this could indeed be the man the world knows as Mark Zuckerberg. His family members include David Rockefeller, his Grandfather. A little strange because Rothschild owns 8% of Facebook shares. Both Rothschild and Rockefeller are well known names....TAP with One World Government associations. and his other granpa....greenberg...CEO of AIG TAP - Facebook was funded with $500 million from a CIA owned bank, which was a -bit suspicious. - Zuckerberg means 'sugar mountain'.- - That's their secret word for Facebook no doubt. -A mountain of information from- which they can extract billions. -Bill Gates comes from a multibillionaire eugenicist family, which was kept well hidden in the early years of Microsoft. -The same families control it all. -Yet is this story true?
