According to a December 4 report in The NY Times, anti-narcotic agents, primarily with the Drug Enforcement Agency, have both smuggled and laundered enormous sums of money in drug proceeds in their continued effort to infiltrate the powerful Mexican drug cartels.
The DEA has performed these under-cover efforts in other countries but began these tactics in Mexico only in the past few years. Because of the nature of the operations, cartels are often allowed to continue in operation for months or years before arrests are made.
Approximately 45,000 deaths have been attributed to the... Read More
An award winning Russian broadcaster gave President Barack Obama "THE" finger as she mentioned his name to a viewing audience of approximately 120 million viewers.
According to the UK Telegraph Ms. Limanova was "let go," for this display of affection. The privately owned and station REN TV labelled her "swift move" as "unacceptable" and "unprofessional."
"On 14 November during the 'News 24' programme the presenter Limanova made an unacceptable gesture that was a synonym for an offensive expression," it said in its official statement.

For those of you who feel that you never have enough hours in the day to accomplish what you need to do, your favorite time of year is about to begin this Sunday Nov. 6th.
Just how much are we really benefiting from Daylight Savings Time? Does it really save us energy? Does it affect us physically?
The idea behind it is that it’s supposed to help us save electricity. Twenty five percent of all the electricity we use for lighting and everyday small appliances occurs in the evening when families are home. By moving the clock back one hour, we cut the amount of electricity we consume... Read More
A Chilean copper and gold mine that is located 500 miles in the North of Santiago collapsed since August 5. That is 69 days since the 33 miners have been trapped underground. On August 31, rescuers team landed on the place and started to drill a preliminary test hole with a 31-ton drill. The process was interrupted on September 2 due to geological faults and at this moment engineers suggest that a rescue within 4 months would be optimistic.
Finally, the process had to continue and these men have all been rescued and taken to hospital for medical check up. All these miners do not have... Read More
Hundreds and hundreds of people have died and around four million have been displaced from their homes and families. It is easy for me to write the figures here and it’s easy for you to read it but to those who have faced the loss; it’s a lot more than mere calculation. Those people have no where to go. They are sleeping, defecating and living on the roads. Waterborne diseases have erupted in all those areas at an enormous scale. They are dependent on others for even a single course of their meal. They are dependent on others to help them keep their bodies covered. They are dependent on others... Read More
If we were rational people, the evacuation of California would begin today. The destruction of Haiti by a magnitude 7.0 earthquake is not only an immense catastrophe, of Biblical proportions, for that accursed country, but is also a prophecy for California. Earthquakes do not strike only the poor. Nor are they always a surprise.
Along geological fault lines, where tectonic plates -- huge chunks of the earth's crust, floating like enormous icebergs on the molten magma of the earths interior -- grind past or into each other, the accumulation of strain and its release as earthquakes is... Read More
Water is too scarce to use for bathing, and drought has created dust bowls. The problem is compounded by AIDS and treatable diseases -- such as diarrhea, pneumonia and tuberculosis and these problems lead the poor into inhumane solutions causing them to sell off their children to save the lives of other members of their families, thus creating modern slavery in the modern world. "While the world's attention is currently gripped by events in other regions, Africa is in crisis with thousands of people dying silently each day, " Experts warn that the current stocks located in the countries...
