Commissioner Backs Calls For Local Peace Initiative

The Commissioner for Baliet County has urged South Sudanese leaders andcitizens to grant other possibilities for peace processes among the ethnic communities in the country; not only depend on Addis Ababa's IGAD mediated peace talks.  Hon.

The commissioner, on his return to South Sudan, said he is ready to forgive and work for peace inSouth Sudan for all the citizens inclusively. {ads1}"We are supposed to have some other peace and reconciliation initiatives among our citizens especially the most affected ethnic communities.

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

Cameron proposes to empower police over passport seizure to fight terrorism

British Prime Minister David Cameron has proposed new anti-terror measures on Monday that will give police force the power to seize the passports of suspected Britons who have travelled abroad to fight with jihadist groups to combat the threat posed by radicalised Britons returning from Syria and Iraq. The proposals have been disclosed after U.K. terrorism threat alert was raised to its second-highest level of “severe” on Friday, saying Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq posed the country's greatest-ever security risk assessed to be at a level where an attack is believed as “highly likely”.

Ukraine's Next Crisis? Economic Disaster

Ukraine's Next Crisis? Economic Disaster

Ukraine's next crisis will be a devastatingly economic one, as violent conflict destroys critical infrastructure in the east and brings key industry to a halt, furthering weakening the energy sector by crippling coal-based electricity production. The Ukrainian military's showdown with separatists in the industrial east has forced coal mines to severely cut production or close down entirely. This has led to an electricity crisis that can only be staunched by cutting domestic production along with exports to Europe, Crimea, and Belarus -- or worse, getting more imports from Russia. In the coal centers of Ukraine's industrial east—Luhansk and Donetsk—fighting has forced the full closure of an estimated 50 percent of coal mines, while overall coal production has fallen 22 percent over the same period last year. {ads1}Key industry sources say they will potentially...

You Can’t Understand ISIS If You Don’t Know the History of Wahhabism in Saudi…

Middle East, Monday, September 1st 2014

The dramatic arrival of Da’ish (ISIS) on the stage of Iraq has shocked many in the West. Many have been perplexed — and horrified — by its violence and its evident magnetism for Sunni youth. But more than this, they find Saudi Arabia’s ambivalence in the face of this manifestation both troubling and inexplicable, wondering, “Don’t the Saudis understand that ISIS threatens them, too?” It appears — even now — that Saudi Arabia’s ruling elite is divided. Some applaud that ISIS is fighting Iranian Shiite “fire” with Sunni “fire”; that a new Sunni state is taking shape at the very heart of what they regard as a historical Sunni patrimony; and they are drawn by Da’ish’s strict Salafist ideology. Other Saudis are more fearful, and recall the history of the revolt against... Read more

Could Gang Violence End Mexico's Shale Dream?

Could Gang Violence End Mexico's Shale Dream?

Violence in Mexico could thwart hopes of a budding shale boom, as oil and gas companies operating in Texas may think twice about moving south of the border. Mexico holds an estimated 545 trillion cubic feet of technically recoverable shale gas and 13 billion barrels of shale oil, but progress in developing those resources has been slow. The obstacles to kick-starting Mexico's shale industry have dampened the once lively enthusiasm surrounding Mexico's historic energy reform. Mexico passed legislation last year that opened up the country's oil and gas sector to private investment, ending a 75-year monopoly by state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex). But the secondary laws that the government must pass to actually implement the legal framework for oil and gas development are proving much more contentious. {ads1}Political disputes over what could be 21 separate...

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.

The ISIS Recruitment Strategy

ISIS obviously has a recruitment program that is quite capable at convincing Westerners to join their ranks.  A glossy new English-language (among others) magazine, Dabiq, provides us with useful information when it comes to better understanding their modus operandi.  The name Dabiq refers the Battle of Marj Dabiq that took place near the town of Dabiq located near Aleppo in Syria on August 24, 1516.  This battle between the Mamluk Sultanate and the Ottoman Empire resulted in a victory that gave the Ottoman Empire control over most of the Middle East, particularly Syria.  The town of Dabiq was captured by ISIS fighters in mid-August 2014, a move that puts them very close to the border with Turkey as shown on this map taken from the Dabiq Twitter feed:   Interestingly, in the...

Government is crazy to classify pot worse than alcohol

The federal government is crazy to classify pot worse than alcohol Ezra Klein explains how drugs are bad, of course, but the drug war is even worse. It's possible, however, that legal pot could be a huge public-health win. Alcohol is a far, far more dangerous drug than pot — and there's some evidence that pot can curb alcohol use. But the government doesn't need to stop there: pot can be legalized in ways that make it much more attractive than drinking.

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

Who could have ever imagined that North America would surpass Saudi Arabia as the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas liquids? A decade ago, that would have seemed laughable. Yet that’s exactly what has happened; and it’s not just Saudi Arabia that has been left in North America’s dust -- Russia has, too. The surge in North American oil and gas production is arguably the most important development in energy over the last decade. That’s the good news. The not so good news is that North America doesn’t have nearly enough oil and gas pipelines to accommodate its 11-million-barrel-a-day output level. The famously unresolved proposed Keystone XL pipeline would carry oil from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast, but its future is in legal and political limbo. The controversial Northern Gateway...

Rumor Microsoft Will Remove Desktop From RT

Rumor Microsoft Will Remove Desktop From RT

Merging the Windows RT and Windows Phone operating systems will create a touch only world on tablets and smartphones By Stephen Pate – Windows 9 codenamed Threshold will merge the operating system for all small screen devices to something that works like Windows Phone 8.1. Or so say the rumors. Myce posted a story suggesting Microsoft will remove the Desktop environment from the Surface 2. Mary Jo Foley, the CNET source for Microsoft leaks, confirmed the same thing. Windows RT and Windows Phone will merge with one code base and no Windows Desktop apps and interface. That makes sense since the worst part of any Windows tablet is stepping back into the world of Windows 7 Desktop. The Desktop fonts and menus are too hard to use for what should be a touch only world. All... Read more

Getting to know your MP better

Last weekend, I visited Chinguacousy Park and had the opportunity to attend Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario’s barbecue in appreciation of the hard-working volunteers who are some of the hardest working grassroots activists in our community.  It was a great afternoon between networking and enjoying our community at the same time.  I had the pleasure of meeting community leaders from across the GTA including, the Honourable Bal Gosal, Minister of State and PC Regional Vice-President for GTA West, Jag Badwal. {ads1}Participating in community events such as these public barbecues and festivals are a fantastic venue for interacting with local politicians representing your desired party.  It’s a feel-good gathering where one can meet other influential individuals who share common goals, aspirations, and successes.   As a Georgetown resident in the riding of Wellington-Halton...

Inside an Iceland Volcano

In past travels I have climbed through lava tubes, run from blasts of sulfur fumes from active volcanos, have witnessed fiery lava drop with steamy sizzles into the sea….BUT when told by a fellow traveler I could descend 120 meters (400ft) “into” an actual volcano chamber, I guffaw, “Yah, right… what Sci Fi have you taken to be reality – Jules Verne’s?” But here I am, with my husband Rick and nine other intrepid adventurers following Thora, our guide, for the 3km (2mi) hike over rugged lava fields to reach the entry point for our journey towards the center of the earth. The tour company picks you up from your hotel in Reykjavik to begin your adventure. At one point we traipse across a steel rung bridge. The crevice below is part of the Eurasian and North American rift which... Read more

Shania Twain pulled out all the stops with her famous voice and sexy moves plus the lights and video of a top Las Vegas show on a cold PEI night By Stephen Pate – The night was cold but the music was hot country in Charlottetown for the Labor Day Weekend with International star Shania Twain headlining the concert of the year.

Music Review Mary Kom

Music :: Filmi, Monday, August 18th 2014

Expectations: Huge! This is a Sanjay Leela Bhansali-produced bio-pic, after all. Music: A gradual build-up of the militant cadences with the right beating of drums and rousing folk choruses pave the way for Vishal Dadlani's strident tones as he steps into the rabble-rouser 'Dil Yeh Ziddi Hai', with inspiring lyrics by Prashant Ingole (till now known for some insignificant work, which he obviously cannot do in a SLB film that is also a work of passion for writer-director Omung Kumar). The use of the flute is as evocative as the background use of rock guitar and the frontal twanging of a single guitar. Though the arrangements could have been softer, the tune gets through on its merit as well as in the emotions Vishal manages to put into his loud delivery as... Read more

Corporate Managed Earnings Don't Believe Everything That You Read

A paper by Ilia Dichev, John Graham, Campbell R. Harvey and Shiva Rajgopal entitled "Earnings Quality: Evidence from the Field" provides investors with some interesting insights into the quality of earnings statements from publicly traded companies.  Given that we always seem to be in the middle of one earnings reporting cycle or another, this study shows us that we can't always believe what we read.   Earnings statements form the heart of internal data used by most savvy investors to pick and...

Why The Fed Must End QE

While the Fed's monetary experimentation with three episodes of quantitative easing and one iteration of Operation Twist has only provided the economy with a modest boost, there is one over-riding reason why the Fed's hands are tied, making it unlikely that we will see another round of easing in the near future, if ever.  We need look no further than the example of Japan and its central bank to understand why.   The Fed has backed itself into a policy corner; it...
