Citizens for Global Solutions has launched its second annual flash contest, Cash for Flash, encouraging youth to exercise their technological expertise to create an educational and entertaining flash movie. Entrants are asked to use Flash and Macromedia Shockwave technology to create a short animated movie addressing America’s role in the world. The contest obliges participants to discuss why global problems matter to Americans and what America can do about them.
There is a clear and present danger of a unilateral US strike against Iran. It will however be grossly counterproductive. The Iranians need only retaliate against two or three major oil installations, besides sinking enough tonnage to make the Straits of Hormuz perilous to navigation. Letting loose a tiny armada of floating mines and employing a dirty nuke will precipitate global economic pandemonium.

El Plan Estratégico de Infraestructuras y Transporte (PEIT) 2005-2020 pretende, en lo fundamental, construir 6.000 kilómetros de autovías y autopistas y 9.000 kilómetros de líneas férreas de alta velocidad (más de 250 km/h), de los cuales unos 1.000 serían exclusivamente para viajeros y el resto líneas mixtas. Estos objetivos implican que España se convierta en 2020 en el primer Estado de la Unión Europea-15 (UE-15) en kilómetros de autopistas/autovías, año en el que contaría con el 50% de toda la red de alta velocidad ferroviaria de la UE. El PEIT está presupuestado en 250.000 millones de euros, pero el Estado tendrá que invertir mucho más para llevarlo a cabo (los constructores ya se lo han dicho al Gobierno), y no sólo por el desfase habitual del 20% entre lo presupuestado y lo gastado, sino, sobre todo, por la escalada imparable de los precios de las materias primas. En este artículo voy a analizar el PEIT de acuerdo con dos escenarios: el convencional y el del techo del petróleo. El primero es lineal: la dinámica socioeconómica de las últimas décadas continuará en el futuro. El segundo tiene en cuenta el colapso socioeconómico provocado por el techo del petróleo. En el primer escenario confronto los objetivos proclamados con citas del propio PEIT, con la opinión de los economistas del transporte y con la política de la UE.
They are the same lot who support Sedation law, anti-terrorism acts, anti-freedom of press and publication laws and other draconian laws. Because they will affect Muslims only! Yet, in he name of free speech they kiss and promote Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses like the holy torah while murder David Irvin’s free speech.
Human Rights Protestors Create World's First Velvet Muhammad; Velvet Prophet Paintings Given to Radical Islamic Groups
Activists are standing up for western values against brazen attempts at intimidation coming from huge numbers of Islamic radicals. The Velvet Muhammad proves that free speech is never in poor taste.

Rather than squawk about how inept and spineless the left has become, which is a pastime for way too many bloggers, I want to pull up the carpets, and see what's crawling around under there.

Plichta writes of this model as follows. "There was a time I used to make fun of the Apocalypse of St John and believed it to be a totally unreliable historical source. Today I am filled with deep humility, perhaps because I am now able to give a concrete description of the foundation of the world as seen by St John with my mathematical discoveries, and thus possibly open a new way to all of humanity which has now reached a dead end."
Bolivia has about 25 cars per 1000 people. Many of them are older models and they are owned almost exclusively by the 10 percent of the population that is wealthy. The USA has 900 cars per 1000 – and that is not counting all of the trucks and government vehicles. If China were to reach half the level of car ownership in the USA, China would need to build or buy more than 600 million cars – more than twice the number in the USA today! But, before the Chinese or the Indians could enjoy driving them very far, the world’s climate would change terribly… and irreversibly!
If you read a description of the escape of the Al Qaeda crew that bombed the USS Cole back in 2000, it is hard not to conclude that the "escape" was an inside job. These guys, held in a top security prison, had help, for sure, both in the prison and outside. But who? Who had the motive and the means? Who actually NEEDS a terrorist threat right now more than anyone else?
Press Release. 6th Feb 2006.
Pochi giorni fa il sindaco di Craiova, Solomon, si è incontrato a Bologna con il sindaco Cofferati. Alla fine si è dichiarato concorde con le autorità italiane sulla gestione dei problemi relativi agli immigrati della sua città, e ha dichiarato inoltre che il loro posto è in Romania, non in Italia. La storia di Andrei, raccontata da lui, mostra una realtà più complessa e difficile.
The cartoon regarding Prophet was published in September 2005 and since then the newspaper people apologised. We assumed everything is over. However, Sharons and Nathanyahoos of the world went on to republish the cartoon under the guise of FREE SPEECH at a very questionable time. I went on to test the free speech and published comments below by Jews about Jews. Guess what?! They were removed.

An innocent man, Leonard Peltier was wrongfully convicted for the deaths on June 26, 1975, of two agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He has served over 30 years in federal prison despite proof that he was convicted on the basis of fabricated and suppressed evidence, as well as coerced testimony. He also has been denied fair consideration for Executive Clemency and parole. The U.S. appellate courts, by their decisions, have recognized the undisputed misconduct in Peltier's case, yet have refused, by misapplying legal standards and claiming lack of authority, to take corrective action. This is clearly an abuse of the legal standards of American justice.
Anti-war activists accused the USA of planning first use of nuclear weapons against Iran, and of currently using uranium weapons in Iraq, and noted that the UN Security Council is responsible for dealing with such threats of war and acts of aggression.

Georg Cantor (1845-1918), by his origination of modern set theory and his studies of the nature of infinity, left science a valuable legacy. Cantor was regularly admitted to a psychiatric clinic within the University of Halle, in Germany, where he lectured and worked as a Professor of Mathematics. On each occasion that he became ill he had been thinking about infinity and the continuum hypothesis. Such intense thought, at the boundaries of his comprehension, caused Cantor to suffer repeated mental breakdowns. Infinity drove him mad.
