Amnesty International says Hamas tortured, killed Palestinians
The militant group Hamas tortured and killed Palestinians during the war against Israel in the Gaza Strip last year, Amnesty International said in a report released Wednesday.
"Hamas, which controls Gaza, arrested and tortured dozens of Palestinians and executed at least 23, the human rights group reported."I may have to change my mind about Amnesty International.
You know me. I'm a history junkie. The history of China fascinates me. There were so many firsts that took place in China. Their golden age was about the same time as the Roman Empire in the West. They were light-years ahead of anything in Europe at the time. Gun powder, steel, using fossil fuels for heat, energy and industry. The first use of paper currency. The list goes on.
Irony Of Ironies
"As I've written previously, we’ve experienced the calmest Hurricane season in 30 years, the quietest tornado season in 60 years; the creation of 19,000 Manhattan islands worth of sea ice, and (again) the Arctic Ice Cap has grown by 533,000 square miles. In 2007, the BBC warned the cap could vanish by 2013. Oh, and we’re at the most industrialized point in human history–and air quality couldn’t be better, according to the EPA."

No Sooner Said, Than...
"The Republican-controlled house has started discussing the possibility of impeaching President Obama, according to the Conservative Tribune."
"A new study published in the British medical journal, The Lancet, concludes we’re 20 more times likely to die from cold than heat.
It says this has “important implications ... for predictions of future effect in climate-change scenarios.”
The researchers, including Canadian scientists, compiled data on more than 74 million deaths in 384 locations across 13 countries from 1985 to 2012, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, the U.K. and the U.S.
They found 7.71% of all deaths were due to “sub-optimal” hot and cold temperatures, but with cold responsible for the vast majority — 7.29% compared to 0.42% for heat.
The study also found most deaths don’t occur during extreme temperatures, but when they are slightly above or below normal, although again, 6.66% of all deaths were related to moderate cold compared to less than 1% for moderate heat."[--]" a warming world could mean fewer temperature-related deaths, not more.
All of this runs contrary to the constant barrage of hysterical propaganda from climate warm mongers.
That would include Al Gore, whose Academy Award-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth incorrectly depicted global warming (aka climate change) as a never ending, planet-wide, relentless assault of rapidly rising temperatures, stronger hurricanes, deadly heat waves and unrelenting droughts happening everywhere at once.

If you don’t want your food genetically modified, tell nature to stop it
"Recent research drives home how misled alarmists are about genetically modified food. All human beings, two Cambridge University scientists have established, are genetically modified, including Chipotle’s customers. Over the years, hundreds of foreign genes have jumped into human DNA through a natural phenomenon called “gene flow.” As a result, all humans carry genes that originated in algae, bacteria and fungi.
If humans can safely accept alien genes without mishap, why not food, too?"

Can't A Girl Get A Break?
"When Kate Middleton left the hospital with baby Charlotte last week, the majority of people could only focus on how insanely adorable the new princess is -- and of course, how insanely gorgeous the Duchess looked. Some keen-eyed people noticed that the little bonnet Princess Charlotte was wearing was on backwards! Hey, cut the Duchess some slack -- she's used to having a boy! Unless you have a hat like this, it's hard to tell that it's on "wrong." I actually have one of these hats -- a pixie hat -- for my daughter, and when I first got it, I put it on the exact same way. It's hard to tell! Here, check out Kate's first "style slip up," as the Daily Mail, called it with her new baby."[---]
"The part that surrounds the face should be on the neck."And this qualifies as news?

Can we please have some of that, Mr. Harper?
Pow! Zap! Kaboom!
"There is a story that dates back to World War II about a French soldier captured by the Nazi’s. Just before morning roll call began, the Commandant of Colditz Castle, a castle turned POW camp announced that by order of Hitler, any POW who had a special trade before the war could be relocated to Germany to live out the war in peace and work as they did before the war.
Immediately, a French soldier volunteered his services in front of nearly 1000 POWs from a mixture of nations including the U.S., Britain, Australia, Poland, and many others. As you can imagine a lot of boos and probably a ton of language was directed at this poor French soldier who just wanted to make it through the war. Upon quieting the multitude of prisoners down, the shocked commandant asked the Frenchman why he is volunteering. The Frenchman responded that he was tired of fighting and truly wanted to do something he enjoyed before the war. He was trained and ready to work for the Germans. But there was one condition the Frenchman told the German officer and that was to keep him as busy as possible because they more work he gets, the less he will think about getting in trouble.
Elated, the Commandant asked the man, “Sir, your wish is my command. Now what was your job before the war?” Not missing a beat, the Frenchman responded, “Sir, I was an undertaker.”"
