Abbott hesitates to comment on asylum seekers’ shipwreck

The asylum seekers boat that sank off Indonesia was allegedly abandoned by its captain five days before it ran out of fuel and hit strong waves. According to the survivors, the boat was lost in the sea for days as they had no sense of direction and kept floating without having enough fuel. The boat was on its way to Australia, where the government had already decided to send all asylum seekers back to Jakarta. The accident killed at least 22 out of 120 asylum seekers whereas 70 are feared missing. The fatalities include a large number of women and children. Their remains were found on a beach in a local estuary, while 25 people were found alive. Indonesia lacks the resources and skills to search in big sea, especially at... Read more

Few Leaders Attend Emergency Debate on Canadian Response to ISIS

At a meagerly attended late-night debate in the House of Commons on Tuesday over Canada’s response to the Islamic State threat, Employment Minister Jason Kenney highlighted the “responsibility to protect” doctrine to fight “genocide” against religious minorities. The debate was triggered evidently in response to growing tensions worldwide about the Islamic State in Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS). However, it was called on by the federal Liberals after the Conservative government announced to dispatch Special Forces as military advisers in Iraq. Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird and Defence Minister Rob Nicholson were all absent from the debate as of midnight. However, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair and Green Leader Elizabeth May were the major party leaders present along with the several dozen MPs who attended... Read more

Scottish Independence referendum: ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ campaigners making final push

With just a couple of days remaining in the Scottish independence referendum on whether Scotland should go for partition or stay with United Kingdom, ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ campaigners are making final efforts to convert the undecided voters on Tuesday. Both sides are making repeated claims and promises to boost the support in their favour with increased urgency. The three Westminster elite leaders from Britain's main parties have issued a joint pledge on today, to give the Scottish parliament more powers if voters reject independence, in a final drive to save the union. Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, opposition Labour party leader Ed Miliband, and Liberal Democrat Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg – the anti-independence “Better Together” campaign supporters, have re-iterated their previous commitments, as they said: “We agreed that: The Scottish Parliament is...

Scotland's Oil and Natural Gas

While most people outside of the oil industry tend to think of the Middle East when they think of the world's oil producing nations, in fact, Scotland is a significant producer of both oil and natural gas.  Scotland is the largest producer of oil in the European Union, producing 674 million barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) in 2010 which was comprised of 455 million BOE of oil and 219 million BOE of natural gas from fields in the North Sea on the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS).  The total tax revenue generated by Scotland's share of the hydrocarbons produced in 2011 - 2012 was £10.6 billion.  In 2011, the oil and gas sector contributed around £25 billion or 17 percent to Scotland's GDP.    Here is a table showing the largest oil...

The Military Capabilities of Iran

With some of the former members of the Coalition of the Willing rattling their sabres now that ISIS/ISIL/IS has claimed responsibility for the brutal murder of another Westerner, it is interesting to note that threat of ISIS has brought Saudi Arabia and Iran closer together since both nations need to co-operate in order to face the "existential" jihadist threat.  This attempt at raproachement has reached the point where Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal has invited his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif to visit Saudia Arabia to discuss the issue.  Since the fall of Iran, relations between the two neighbours has been tense, in large part, due to the fact that Tehran regards Riyadh as America's proxy in the Persian Gulf region.  On top of that, Iran's philosophy against monarch-based rule...

Khan Announces ‘Go Nawaz Go’ Day

He said that change can be seen the way the passengers threw out the parliamentarians and the way three IGs stood against unlawful orders. Imran Khan also gave the example of David Cameron adding that this is how a leader of a nation should live, caring about the taxes of the people of his nation. He said the government is answerable to the question that why did they increase the electricity bills.

Soros Signals Argentina’s Shale is Biggest Place to Be

One of the world’s legendary investors is upping his bet on Argentina’s shale oil and gas industry in a show of confidence for shale production in South America’s largest unconventional prize —and a big boost for both supermajors and smaller players making big waves in the heart of new discovery areas. George Soros has doubled his stake in YPF SA, the state-owned oil company in Argentina, which sits atop some of the world’s largest shale oil and gas resources, and is about to get even larger following a new discovery over the last couple of weeks of a second key shale play.  Argentina holds an estimated 27 billion barrels of technically recoverable oil and 802 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable shale gas, much of it located in the Vaca Muerta, an...

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

A study in the art of fast bowling and captaincy

He has shown the menacing influence fast bowling has on a cricket match. Irrespective of the conditions, a bowler of his ilk can threaten any batsman. Sadly, bowlers of his ilk are rare to come by, which is what makes Mitchell Johnson a greater hazard for the opposition. In practice sessions, it’s hard to replicate what Johnson does. Steyn and Morkel bowl fast too. But not as fast nor are they as life-threatening as Johnson. A bowling machine doesn’t provide the angle of his round arm action. Nor does it replicate the death stare from him, nor the moustache, nor the variety in deliveries.  Johnson still does spray the ball around. Though his control has improved a great deal, there are moments in which the old Johnson appears. For my mind,... Read more

QBs Recovering from Offseason Surgeries as NFL Training Camps Open

It has been an off-season of recuperation for a number of NFL quarterbacks who underwent surgery in recent months. With training camps now getting into full swing, all eyes will be on these recovering stars, whose health is critical to their teams’ success in the upcoming NFL season.

Last season, Newton led the Panthers to a 12-4 record and their first NFC South title since 2008.... Read more

CBC Canada’s Perpetual Schnorrer

Always begging the politicians and public is a tiresome routine for the CBC and their Friends By Stephen Pate – Someone who is always begging for money and unappreciative is a schnorrer in Yiddish. The CBC is making a nuisance of itself begging for money in the Senate, the House of Commons, on the CBC and now before the CRTC.  The story reads Canadians Would Pay For CBC, CBC Execs Tell CRTC as if Canadians are not already paying for the CBC. “A schnorrer is a Yiddish label for a “beggar having some pretensions to respectability. In contrast to the ordinary house-to-house beggar, whose business is known and easily recognized, the schnorrer assumes a gentlemanly appearance, disguises his purpose, gives evasive reasons for asking assistance, and is not satisfied with small favors, being indeed...

Baltic Sea Mystery similar to Mystery of Everyman’s Way

There was a strange object discovered in the summer of 2011 by a group of Swedish treasure hunters from an ocean explorer team from Sweden.  Quite recently, this Ocean X Team conducted a second expedition to the circle-shaped object in the Baltic Sea and found something they have never experienced before. First they thought it was just stone or a rock cliff, but after further observations the object appeared more as a huge mushroom, rising 3-4 meters/10-13 feet from the seabed, with rounded sides and rugged edges. The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot. “During my 20-year... Read more

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

Why The Debate Over Energy Storage Utterly Misses The Point

The debate over which energy storage technology will prove to be the best in the long-term is woefully misguided. Many technologies have been tested in the field or been fully installed, but their real-world applications have created constant questions around a number of fixed themes: the three-points concern cost, technology, and potential environmental impact, as well as the need for specific regulation and end-of-life management. Here, engineers have run into the dilemma of energy storage technology. It is difficult for any energy storage method, at least at the current stage of development, to produce the amounts of power and energy required at a cost-effective price. However, passing judgment on energy storage by using this equation alone is simply incorrect. After all, we do not expect renewable energy to provide a one-size-fits-all solution... Read more

Apple Could Sell 15 Million iPhone 6’s By Weekend

Meanwhile Microsoft can’t get its marketing act in gear on Windows Phone By Stephen Pate – Apple is hitting all the right buttons with its roll-out of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. We know the hot button features, the price, when and where to pre-order and the delivery date. Microsoft spent $7 billion to buy Nokia, released at least 4 new phones in the past 90 day. The latest Lumia 830 was released on September 4th, 2014 with vague pricing and no confirmed carriers. 6 days later, you can’t find the Lumia 830 even on the Microsoft’s store. Microsoft’s marketing is abysmally bad compared to Apple who execute perfectly.  Microsoft deserves the 3.6% market share they have.  Apple should see a bump in their 42% market share when the iPhone 6 ships this month. iPhone...

New school year, new school… new friends (please!!)

New school year, new school… new friends (please!!)

When you’re all cozy in a friendship you can totally relax. Even going to school is more fun because your friend is there. But when you move to a school where you know no one, and your bff friend from your old school stops acting like a friend, then nothing feels right. I recently got this email from a girl who is in that sad place: Where do I fit it?!  The Girls' Friendship Q&A Book, by Annie Fox, iIllustration by Erica DeChavez © 2014, Annie Fox and Erica DeChavez Hey Terra, Last year I moved to a new place. Later I heard that my best friend was best friends with some new girl. That girl is apparently really popular and cool (and also kinda mean) and in one year’s time my bff has become friends with all the poplar kids... Read more

Windsor Great Park: 5,000 Acres of History

Even on a cold winter’s morning, the hedges of rhododendron in Windsor Great Park are jungle green and glossy. Ducks tread over the wafer-thin ice of Wick Pond and coots bob along, unfazed by the frigid waters. Most visitors come to Windsor for the castle, spilling off trains and coaches for history’s sake. They jostletheir way up the High Street, perhaps pausing for a glance at Wren’s Guildhall or stopping at The Crooked House  for tea and cake. It’s only right that Europe’s longest-occupied castle attracts so much attention, but a morning of crowds and dazzle calls for a more sedate afternoon. Fortunately, Windsor’s charms don’t end at the palace gates. Just a few hundred feet south – in the grounds of Windsor Great Park – there’s peace, tranquility and a new perspective on a millennium of history. The... Read more

The Xpose slap controversy was a 'publicity stunt', reveals Sonali Raut

When Himesh Reshammiya's The Xpose released this year, much ado was made about a spat between its heroines Sonali Raut and Zoya Afroz. Rumour mills were abuzz about Zoya having a huge tiff with Sonali on the sets of Kapil Sharma’s television show Comedy Nights with Kapil; and having slapped her in front of the entire production unit. {ads1}Turns out, we were all fooled. "All that hype and hoopla was 'engineered' by the makers to prop up the movie. It was a publicity stunt," reveals Sonali Raut. Shocking! She explains, "We all know there was a slap scene in the movie as part of the story.  Actually, that was all. It never happened in real life. There was no tiff on the sets of the TV show and no slap." Sonali may have unwittingly... Read more

Movie Review Raja Natwarlal

Reviews, Wednesday, September 3rd 2014

There have been many films in Bollywood, which have followed the 'Robin Hood' format in stories. At the same time, the silver screen has been a testimony to many films which have actually 'con-tested' the elections as far as conning is concerned. Films like DHOOM series, SPECIAL 26, BUNTY AUR BABLI, BLUFFMASTER, OYE LUCKY! LUCKY OYE!, AANKHEN etc... will always remain as the evergreen shining examples of films which has been made on the subject of con jobs. This week's release RAJA NATWARLAL (earlier titled SHAATIR) also follows the same path. The film starts off with Raja (Emraan Hashmi) a con artist by 'profession' and his partner in crime Raghav (Deepak Tijori) and their means to survive in the big bad city of Mumbai. Life goes on smoothly for Raja, courtesy... Read more

Kanye West Shouts Out Person in Wheelchair

Kanye West  tells wheelchair-bound concertgoers  “Stand Up or I’m Not Rapping!” By Stephen Pate – Many people reacted with revulsion to rapper Kanye West when he told a person in a wheelchair to stand up or the concert would stop in Australia. Stand Up or I’m Not Rapping! It would be hard to imagine the pressure from the rap star and his rowdy audience on a person who could not stand because he or she is disabled. The crowd started chanting “Stand up! Stand up! Stand up!” My first thought was “What an arsehole? Oh yeah he’s a rapper and they are ignorant.” The truth is Kanye West is not that much different from folks everywhere. Have you ever thought about challenging someone with a disabled parking tag? Hey! You’re not that disabled. See Kanye West and proving your... Read more

Music Review Finding Fanny

Music :: Filmi, Thursday, September 11th 2014

Expectations: We do have high expectations from this film from the co-producer of Love Aaj Kal, Agent Vinod, Cocktail and above all, Go Goa Gone, and the look and vibe of Finding Fanny fans our hopes further! Music: Mathias Duplessy, like another overseas composer, Wayne Sharpe in Raajneeti's 'Dhan dhan dharti', shows that where there is a will, there is an Indian way. His 'Fanny re' (sung and written by Mukhtiyar Ali) is delightfully desi in its final tenor, and the correct Goan element comes in through the placid notes of the omnipresent single guitar, The song has a second version, in which the only difference is that the words 'Mahi ve' substitute for 'Fanny re.' But while all this is fine, and the song has the right inflections and touches needed... Read more

The Federal Reserve Plays the Blame Game

The Federal Reserve finally has it all figured out.  A brief paper by Yi Wen, Assistant Vice President and Economist at the St. Louis Federal Reserve and his Research Associate, Maria Arias, points out who is to blame for why the Federal Reserve's multi-trillion dollar monetary experiment has been such a colossal failure since 2008.  Here's their explanation.   The authors open by explaining the theory of money and inflation.  They note that inflation occurs because, according to the monetarist view, there...

The Benefits of Ending Currency Manipulation

Since the United States trade balance turned negative in the early 1990s, the situation has improved very little, except during the period since the middle of the Great Recession as shown here:     During and since the Great Recession, the saving grace for the balance in trade has been the lack of demand for foreign-made goods as consumers have retrenched.   If you look back to the period between 1998 and 2006, you'll notice that the balance of trade began a steady march into...
