Today’s Birthday: SIR JOHN FRANKLIN (1786)


Sir John Franklin (1786)

Franklin was a British Royal Navy officer and Arctic explorer who also served as governor of Tasmania. He is best remembered for presiding over a doomed expedition in the 1840s to chart the Northwest Passage through the Canadian Arctic. He and his crew fell prey to a host of ills, including starvation, disease, and lead poisoning. Of the entire expedition of nearly 130 men, not one is known to have survived. What evidence suggests that some of the crew members may have resorted to cannibalism? More… Discuss

This Day in the Yesteryear: CHINESE SUBMARINE SUFFERS MYSTERIOUS ACCIDENT THAT KILLS 70 (2003)


Chinese Submarine Suffers Mysterious Accident that Kills 70 (2003)

A week and a half after a mysterious event left the entire 70-man crew of the Chinese, Ming-class submarine No. 361 dead at their posts, the stricken vessel was discovered and towed to shore. The official explanation for the disaster, that the crew suffocated when diesel engines failed to shut down while the vessel was submerged, leaves many questions unanswered. For example, if the vessel was submerged, how was it recovered? What else is strange about the circumstances surrounding the tragedy? More… Discuss

 

Glee – Need You Now


Picture perfect memories
Scattered all around the floor
Reaching for the phone ’cause
I can’t fight it anymore

And I wonder if I
Ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one
I’m all alone
And I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call
But I’ve lost all control
And I need you now

And I don’t know how
I can do without
I just need you now

Another shot of whiskey
Can’t stop looking at the door
Wishing you’d come sweeping
In the way you did before

And I wonder if I
Ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one
I’m a little drunk
And I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call
But I’ve lost all control
And I need you now

And I don’t know how
I can do without
I just need you now

Whoa, whoa
Guess I’d rather hurt
Than feel nothing at all

It’s a quarter after one
I’m all alone
And I need you now
And I said I wouldn’t call
But I’m a little drunk
And I need you now

And I don’t know how
I can do without
I just need you now
I just need you now

Oh baby, I need you now

Boston marathon explosion: Eyewitness report (Carlos and Melida Arredondo



Two bombs exploded during today’s Boston Marathon (April 15, 2013). Carlos and Melida Arredondo were in the VIP seating section at Copley Square when the surprise explosions occurred; a certified Red Cross worker, Carlos explains his efforts to help the first people injured in the blasts and the nature of their injuries. Like many others who expected today’s event to be one of solidarity and enjoyment with friends, Melida explains how people have become separated in the after-blast crowd, with limited access to communications. The Arredondos, whose two sons were casualties of war (Alex, in Iraq; Brian, to suicide), discuss their horror at seeing war-zone-like bloodshed in their own backyard: “Why”?

“Self-Deportation Can’t Be Rebranded”: Wording The Explanation Differently Doesn’t Change The Meaning


mykeystrokes.com

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) appeared on “Meet the Press” last weekend and said something interesting about the Republican Party and its approach to immigration policy.

“[T]he politics of self-deportation are behind us,” Graham said. “Mitt Romney is a good man. He ran in many ways a good campaign, but it was an impractical solution, quite frankly. It was offensive. Every corner of the Republican Party from libertarians, the RNC, House Republicans and the rank and file Republican Party member is now understanding there has to be an earned pathway to citizenship.”

For those hoping to see comprehensive immigration reform this year, it was a heartening sentiment. It was also mistaken — the politics of self-deportation are still at the core of many GOP contingents.

A pocket of conservatives is lashing out privately and publicly against broad immigration reform and could seriously complicate any momentum for a House deal. […]

Chicago Ex-Black Panther Wants To Ban The Term “Illegal Immigrants”


YouViewed/Editorial

Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Black Panther) Introduces Resolution Seeking To Ban Use Of Term “Illegal Immigrant” In The House…

 

 

 

” Ex-Black Panther Bobby Rush would prefer the term, try not to laugh, “undocumented foreign nationals” be used.

 

Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) has introduced a resolution that calls on members of the House to stop referring to “undocumented foreign nationals” as “illegal” immigrants.

His proposal, H.Res. 155, expresses the “necessity” for members of the House to use the term “undocumented” instead of “illegal” when referring to “foreign nationals which are working in the United States without proper documentation.”

Rush’s resolution was proposed shortly after The Associated Press news service said it would no longer use the term “illegal immigrant.” According to the AP, “illegal” should be used to describe an action, not a person.

But conservatives criticized the decision as a political one that seemed designed to help…

Get Advanced System Care (ASC) free and let it work its magic. It will take care of your battery usage, and silent monitoring. But don’t just take my word for it…Try it it’s free!

Cosmin Muntianu

Sa fim sinceri, virusii sunt foarte aiurea. Din pacate, ei ne distrug linistea si fericirea in lumea asta a telefoniei mobile. Nu iti vor distruge telefonul dar cu siguranta ii vor distruge modul de functionare, fluiditatea..
Vestea proasta este faptul ca rata de infectare a crescut excesiv in 2012, cu nu mai putin de 163% comparativ cu 2012. Nesurprinzator este faptul ca 95% dintre infectari au avut loc pe dispozitivele cu Android l bord, infectare mare datorata ratei mare de raspandire a acestui sistem de operare mobil in lume.

CHeck also who some of your followers are, and especially what are they blogging about!

readful things blog

So, I was just sitting here looking at my lovely spam filter. Oh my. I have no idea what some of these comments are even about. After navigating the first few pages of ridiculous comments that were clearly only left to include a link, I realised something. I don’t care. So if any of your messages have ever ended up in that world of whatzit that is my spam filter I would truly like to apologise, but I refuse to subject myself to the torture of looking for them any longer. Scary. Just Scary. my particular favorite one was from a person who told me that sometimes my posts are boring but they follow me anyway and I am welcome. Wow. Thanks. That one might not have been spam. I also appreciated the one that said “I signed up to follow a comment on your blog and now every time…

Man on the roof Picture, Boston Marathon Bomb Blasts

Reblogged  from Prayingforoneday

All over facebook here. The picture top left, the 1st picture is the 2nd blast, the man on the roof appears to be nearer a roof from the first blast

The person could have good reason to be there. The person may not. This needs to get exposure, I am sure the police will know, but lets get this picture going through Facebook and Word Press.  As I say, may be nothing, might be everything

Also hearing on most TV Channels here an 8 year old boy died and the Boston Kids Hospital is busy, this disturbs me and it will others. Put me in the path of these children. So sad
