Cold War: From Wikipedia (this day in the yesteryear)


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_War?wprov=sfla1

East German construction workers building the Berlin Wall.

The Cold War was a state of geopolitical tension after World War II between powers in the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its satellite states) and powers in the Western Bloc (the United States, its NATO allies and others). Historians do not fully agree on the dates, but a common timeframe is the period between 1947, the year the Truman Doctrine, a U.S. foreign policy pledging to aid nations threatened by Soviet expansionism, was announced, and either 1989, when communism fell in Eastern Europe, or 1991, when the Soviet Union collapsed. The term “cold” is used because there was no large-scale fighting directly between the two sides, but they each supported major regional wars known as proxy wars.

Katie Melua

Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream he said
The one that makes me laugh he said
And threw his arms around my neck
Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I’ll run away with you
I’ll run away with you
Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed his face and kissed his head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make him glow
Why are you so far away? he said
Why won’t you ever know that I’m in love with you
That I’m in love with you
You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You’re just like a dream
You’re just like a dream
Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe his name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only boy I loved
And drowned him deep inside of me
You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven
You, soft and only
You, lost and lonely
You, just like heaven

Mother-of-two warns of the dangers of tanning beds with a photo of her skin cancer scar

Mother-of-two warns of the dangers of tanning beds with a photo of her skin cancer scar
The mother-of-two wants other parents to keep their children away from tanning beds
A mum has shared a selfie of her scarred face on Facebook to warn of the dangers of tanning beds.

Mallory Lubbock, a mother-of-two from Iowa, recently had a skin cancer spot removed from her top lip – the result of her days as a teenager spent in tanning beds.

After the painful procedure, Lubbock, 26, shared photos on her Facebook, where she described the future doctors checkups she will have to endure and criticised her younger self for tanning in tanning beds.

How a woman’s brutally honest selfie saved lives
Lubbock wrote: “So, today I got my first cancerous spot removed. I now get to go back for suture removal/wound check, an appointment to get my WHOLE body checked out, VERY routine check-ups for a long while, and then routine check-ups for life, and almost 100% certainly many more painful a** appointments of getting skin cancer taken off my body.

“Damn it 16-year-old Mallory that went tanning every single day for 2 years. I will try like hell to make sure my daughter will not be laying in a single tanning bed while she is under my roof and I hope her just hearing about and seeing Mama go through this will be enough.”

Lubbock then advised other parents to take her warning seriously and keep their children out of the dangerous beds.

“You guys. Get your daughters out of tanning beds. Get your 16-year-old sister out of them. It’s so not worth it. Is tan skin REALLY worth it?” the mum asked.

Concluding her post, Lubbock wrote: “I am now the mom at the beach with the umbrella and my spf 100 HEAVILY applied. Never ever ever did I think this would happen to me (who does?)”

In the photos, Lubbock shows off a heavily bandaged upper lip, as well as a deep scar that extends to her nose.

The images are difficult to look at – which Lubbock hopes will be enough to scare other people away from tanning beds.

The mum-of-two told Yahoo: “I remember seeing skin cancer posts on Facebook and thinking, ‘Oh, that’ll never happen to me.’ I wanted to bring awareness to not only what can happen when you’re out in the sun without sunscreen but also in a tanning bed.”

Tanning beds can be just as dangerous, if not more so, than tanning in the sun.

According to SkinCancer.org: “people who first use a tanning bed before age 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75 per cent.”

Melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer and although it is not the most common, it causes the most deaths, according to SkinCancer.org.

On Facebook, many people are praising Lubbock for sharing the warning, which has since been shared close to 200 times.

The Independent has reached out to Lubbock for comment.

Liberal Democrat Vince Cable slammed for “white faces” Brexit slur | City A.M.

Cable slammed for “white faces” Brexit slur
Helen Cahill

Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable has been slammed for saying the Brexit vote was driven by a nostalgia for a time “when faces were white”.

Speaking at his party’s spring conference today, Cable said young people had been disappointed by the outcome of the EU referendum and that the vote had plunged the country into a “non-violent civil war”.

“Too many were driven by a nostalgia for a world where passports were blue, faces were white, and the map was coloured imperial pink,” he said.

“Their votes on one wet day in June, crushing the hopes and aspiration of the young for years to come. The excuse for this outrage – a vision of a global Britain signing lots of new trade deals – is a fraud. Far from opening our arms to the world, we will be tearing up preferential trade deals we already have with 27 countries in the EU and 74 outside it.”

James Cleverly, Tory MP and deputy chairman of the Conservatives, said: “I thought we had moved on from the prejudiced view that Brexit was driven by casual racism. It certainly wasn’t the reason I voted for Brexit.

“We now have an opportunity for the UK to build modern, mutually beneficial cultural and economic relationships with the world. For Sir Vince to dismiss these opportunities show that he is the one who is backward looking.”

Prominent backbench Brexiteer John Redwood said Cable’s comment was “complete nonsense”.

“That is a complete misunderstanding of what was happening,” he said. “What doesn’t Cable understand about our democracy? Why do these people want to give all our money away? I find it extraordinary.”

Tory MEP Dan Hannan said:

Amazing that Vince Cable, who likes to portray himself as reasonable, casually dismisses 17.4m people as racists. Voting Leave was the opposite of nostalgia. We are breaking free from a declining trade bloc and embracing the growing markets across the oceans.
