Gordon Brown and his fellow world leaders have sparked outrage after it was disclosed they enjoyed a six-course lunch followed by an eight-course dinner at the G8 summit where the global food crisis tops the agenda.

The global financial crisis could lead to losses of 1,600 billion dollars for financial institutes, according a report in the Swiss Sunday newspaper SonntagsZeitung. It quoted a confidential study by the hedge fund
According to an article in Sonntags Zeitung, the banks are only a quarter of their way through announcing their losses.
S&P analysts pointed out today that over $3 trillion has been lost from global stock markets in June alone. To put that in perspective, that's 8.18% of the total value of 52 equity indices lost in a single month.
A 2005 prediction of solar activity. The sunspot number should now stand close to 100, instead it is zero. "Spin-orbit coupling" to blame; effects could last decades.

The study's lead author, Ian Wilson, explains further, "[The paper] supports the contention that the level of activity on the Sun will significantly diminish sometime in the next decade and remain low for about 20 - 30 years."
With diesel smoke and white powder flying, heavy equipment operators worked furiously to remove enough snow to open the Going-to-the-Sun road, which connects the two sides of
But huge amounts of snow still blanket the Northern Rockies high country, in part because of record snowfalls in Montana this year, so the opening will not take place until Wednesday, the latest on record by a day, except for World War II when the road was not plowed at all.
Biofuels have forced global food prices up by 75% - far more than previously estimated - according to a confidential World Bank report obtained by the Guardian.
The figure emphatically contradicts the
Senior development sources believe the report, completed in April, has not been published to avoid embarrassing President George Bush.

These policies favoring biofuel production are causing people to die.
The World Bank should be less concerned with "embarrassing Bush" than they should be with telling the truth straight up, period, end of discussion.
President Bush and the top U.S. military commander warned Israel Wednesday against bombing Iran, suggesting the U.S. doesn't want to get involved in a third war.
This is a very public distancing on the part of the

So said Lyndon Baines Johnson in a dramatic Oval Office meeting with then-Israeli foreign minister Abba Eban, just ten days before the outbreak of the 1967 war.
Asked by Mitchell if that meant Cheney wanted the
One has to wonder just how far Cheney is willing to go get his next war started.
And consummate sociopath that he is, he will never accept any blame or shame for what devastation his decisions may cost not only this country, but the world.
Israeli leaders have sent messages to several Western countries that ruled out an attack on Teheran in 2008.
One has to wonder if
Iran has resumed work on constructing highly sophisticated equipment that nuclear experts say is primarily used for building atomic weapons, according to the latest intelligence reports received by Western diplomats.
This is the article to which the Haaretz article, commented on this morning, alludes.

The bottom line is, the IAEA has been watching what
So maybe it's time for the world to find out just what Israel is doing that they have so much nuclear waste to get rid of.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday said his country would not stop enriching uranium, as demanded by the international community, and charged that
If in fact this is what Ahmadinejad actually said (and who knows how "lost in translation" from Farsi into English via Haaretz, this statement could have been mangled), he's really made a colossal error in judgment by saying this.
It may sound good for local Islamic community consumption, but it will go over like the proverbial "lead balloon elsewhere.
And as to the statement that "Meanwhile, a British newspaper, quoting intelligence reports received by Western diplomats, reported Monday that Iran has resumed work aimed at producing a nuclear bomb.", please note that the information is never sourced.
It is simply stated as true (by the same writer who claimed Mohammed Atta was meeting with Iraq Intelligence and that Iran was "grooming" bin Laden's successor), and reported an article of faith, without anything concrete with which to back it up.
And please note that the same Wardrums intensifying, anyone?!?!?

David Leigh wrote back in June
Syria has complained to the United Nations about a series of alleged Israeli wrongdoings in the Golan Heights, including burying nuclear waste and discriminating against the region's Druze residents.
Oh? and just what is
Egypt has stopped mediating between Hamas and Fatah due to a US-Israel veto, the London-based A-Sharq al-Awasat reported Sunday, quoting a senior Palestinian source.
The last thing
The further apart these two Palestinian factions are, the more territory
On Friday, Israelis in war ships launched two rockets targeting Palestinian fishermen on the shore line outside the Sudaniyya seaside area of the northern Gaza Strip,.The Israelis assaults continued on Saturday morning when Palestinian fishermen was targeted with machine guns damaging their boats, outside the shoreline of Tal As-Sultan, in the western parts of Rafah in southern Gaza Strip.These Israeli attacks inside Palestinian territorial waterlines is a direct violation of the truce, which went in to effect on June 19 between the Israeli occupant and the Palestinian homeland resistance.

Maya Angelou once said... "History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again." Truer words were never spoken. Unfortunately, many events are being relived again..... but some are facing them with courage... Mohammed Omer is one of them.
Note: This is a compilation of his first hand account of the events of June 26 and June 27, 2008. On June 28th as this is being transcribed Omer is again in transit to a European hospital in Gaza due to chest pains and difficulty breathing as a result of the following.
Remember a couple of weeks ago, when this site mentioned that the world can look for a further demonization of the Pakistani government until the
Didn't take too long for this to happen, did it?!?
Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden's terrorist organisation, driven out of Afghanistan and defeated in Iraq, is re-emerging in strength in three alternative safe havens for training, operational planning and recruiting - Pakistan, Somalia and Algeria - according to Western intelligence and defence sources.
It is baldly obvious where the propaganda is going here.
The US and NATO are hoping to step up pressure on the Pakistani government to have a very strong Western military presence on Pakistani soil, something that they have heretofore refused, and something that would compromise any sense of being a sovereign government to the Pakistani people
And what do
In 2006, oil and natural gas exports made up 98% of Algerian exports.
And the West wants those resources...badly.
In an article by Carl Bloise out of "thirdworldtraveler.com", from www.zmag.org, January 16, 2007, the following facts were stated:
And the people in these three countries?
Generally living in grinding poverty, with only a few of the elite enjoying the good life at the top.
When people believe that they have a possibility of a better future, and more sharing in the wealth these countries are producing, they generally aren't going to be picking up rifles or setting off bombs.
But what countless administrations seem to be continuing to do in these countries - in a way that is almost terrifyingly pathological - is to support tinpot dictators for as long as they can, extract what they and the corporations who support them want, then are suddenly amazed when citizens of these countries want some of the rewards their natural resources are bringing to actually return to the citizens of those countries.
CNN’s Ed Lavendera reports that Congress is giving $100 million to pay security expenses for this summer’s political conventions.
The ACLU is suing both cities to disclose how security money is being spent.

People may feel the need to "defy" the cameras. he cameras can be defeated by the simple expedient of wearing a hoodie. Meanwhile, I have seen these baseball caps with infra-red emitting LEDs around the brim and a small battery. To other people, the LEDs do not appear to do anything, but to security cameras, they create a white glow that obliterates the face.
Google will have to turn over every record of every video watched by YouTube users, including users' names and IP addresses, to Viacom, which is suing Google for allowing clips of its copyright videos to appear on YouTube, a judge ruled Wednesday.
Viacom wants the data to prove that infringing material is more popular than user-created videos, which could be used to increase Google's liability if it is found guilty of contributory infringement.
Just when you thought you've heard it all...
A senior government official with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has expressed great interest in a so-called safety bracelet that would serve as a stun device, similar to that of a police Taser®. According to this promotional video found at the Lamperd Less Lethal website, the bracelet would be worn by all airline passengers.
This bracelet would:
• take the place of an airline boarding pass
• contain personal information about the traveler
• be able to monitor the whereabouts of each passenger and his/her luggage
• shock the wearer on command, completely immobilizing him/her for several minutes
Kiss the last of tourism goodbye.

Federal authorities are investigating whether a model rocket shot past a jet that had just left a
About 148 passengers were aboard the Continental flight in late May when an object with a flaming tail was seen streaming past a cockpit window.
If the passengers and crew could see it, it wasn't a model. Either the US is testing missiles near civilian flight paths again, or we just missed a false-flag shoot down.
First thing, to build a large model rocket capable of making
Model rocket hobbyists are being scape-goated for something else that happened!
On Memorial Day, the Continental pilot reported being startled by his encounter with this object that "went straight up" and left a long white vapor trail.
Yet the trail to identifying this object has appeared to run cold since the FAA and the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force launched their investigation into the episode.
We may have just missed a false-flag "terror" attack by "Al Qaeda" (nudge nudge wink wink).
The news story at the time was that the rocket was probably a "hobby" rocket. Well, being a rocket hobbiest myself, this story never made sense. Hobby rockets are too small to be seen by a passenger jet. Amateur rocket enthusiasts have special areas set aside by the FAA to conduct flights, and more to the point, most hobby rocket engines have very short burn times, which means a hobby rocket reaching the altitude of the passenger jet would no longer be trailing a white trail. Certainly hobby or model rockets won't go "20 miles" up as the pilot described.
The fact that investigation has "gone cold" since the FAA and the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force took charge signals a cover-up of some kind.
The National Children's Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.
This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.
Yet another governmental agency desperate to justify its existence, to the tune of 12 million pounds from the British government: unflipping believable!
Some kids like some foods, but dislike others for reasons which have absolutely nothing to do with racism!
The existence of a training led by a US defense contractor to teach Mexican police torture tactics in order to combat organized crime and the local government's adamant defense of the program is particularly disturbing considering the US government's recent approval of the $1.6 billion Plan Mexico, also known as the Merida Initiative. Plan
Torture: this administration loves it so much that it not only does it domestically and outsources it internationally; it also contracts to teach it to foreign intelligence and police departments!
Big Pharma is busily applying for -- and has already received -- multiple patents for the medical properties of pot. These include patents for synthetic pot derivatives (such as the oral THC pill Marinol), cannabinoid agonists (synthetic agents that bind to the brain's endocannabinoid receptors) like HU-210 and cannabis antagonists such as Rimonabant. This trend was most recently summarized in the NIH paper (pdf), "The endocannabinoid system as an emerging target of pharmacotherapy," which concluded, "The growing interest in the underlying science has been matched by a growth in the number of cannabinoid drugs in pharmaceutical development from two in 1995 to
