Worst freeze for 20 years
Daily Express [UK], by Nathan Rao

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/12/2013 5:41:48 PM

The biggest freeze in 20 years is set to bring a foot of snow by the start of next week. [Snip] Forecasters said parts of the North-east and Scotland could be knee-deep in snow by Monday. Breakdown services last night warned of “widespread chaos” in the most severe whiteout since the winter of 1993. Britain faces a two-pronged attack from swathes of snow-laden air due to pour in from the Atlantic and the North Sea. Worst hit will be the East, South-east, Central and Northern regions, though nowhere will escape the winter blast. Gritters and snowploughs are on standby

Boy they are going to feel silly looking at all those wind turbines frozen by the cold temperatures. And think of all those electric cars that only go half as far on a battery charge. For Great Britain, a 10 degree colder winter kills far more people than a 10 degree hotter summer.

A local TV meteorologist stated the other day that other parts of the world are suffering unusual cold, while the United States is warmer than normal. He went on to say this same pattern appeared in the early 1950´s, and was followed by years of unusual cold for the U.S.

Does that mean we can look forward to a change in our weather patterns, to much colder?

#11: I don´t know about other societies, but the Romans had indoor central heat. Not only that, but they had a kind of under-floor heating that must have been a delight -- they ran flues from basement fires under their stone floors, making the whole of the stone floor comfortably warm.

Families flee Disneyland, cars flip

shakes downtown Los Angeles
followed by TWENTY aftershocks

A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck near Los Angeles late on Friday, rattling a wide swath of Southern California, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There were no immediate reports of injury from the quake, centered outside suburban La Habra, about 20 miles from downtown Los Angeles, however, families at Disneyland were left stuck on rides as hundreds of stores and homes were ruined by damage. The area was initially hit by a 3.6 earthquake earlier in the evening before the larger blast was felt. The surrounding area was then hit by at least 40 aftershocks following the powerful quake that hit shortly after 9pm.

Fears of NHS Cover-Up as Hospitals
Accused of ´Fiddling´ Death Figures
Breitbart London [UK], by Nick Hallett    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/29/2014 2:38:52 AM     Post Reply
NHS hospitals have been "fiddling" their death rate figures by falsely claiming that patients were terminally ill, according to new research. The new figures, which show that the number of "terminal" illnesses have risen five times since 2006, have caused concerns that hospitals could be covering up for poor care. Every hospital on the NHS has to collect data on how its death rates compare to what would be expected, but if a case is described as "palliative"--i.e. the patient had a terminal illness and was expected to die anyway--it doesn’t normally count towards death rate. The huge increase

More than a dozen foreign nationals, including several children, had to be evacuated from a guesthouse used by a U.S.-based aid group in Kabul, after armed Taliban insurgents stormed the building and took at least four people hostage. The hostages, which were said to have included three U.S. citizens, were trapped inside for at least an hour before Afghan security officials ended the siege in the upmarket residential area of the capital. At least one Afghan child and five Taliban insurgents died during the operation, a military official said after the battle was over, adding that all hostages are now safe.

Relations between Washington and its long-standing ally Saudi Arabia have sharply declined in recent months over US policy in the Middle East--now even a visit to Riyadh by President Obama might do little to narrow the differences, reports the BBC´s Kim Ghattas in Washington. US officials briefing reporters ahead of the trip have said little of substance about what they expect, other than to say it is very important. Ben Rhodes, the president´s deputy national security adviser, did acknowledge that there were disagreements between the two countries. One of them has already put a small damper on the trip. On

Nigel Farage has accused the European Union of having "blood on its hands" over the Ukraine. Does that sound over the top? [Snip] Well, that was the EU´s plan and it has been working on it for some time. The Ukraine was to form the jewel in the crown of the EU´s Eastern Partnership programme, which would see Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus brought closer to the bosom of the EU. This was what David Cameron was endorsing last year when, at the time of Croatia´s accession to the EU, he described his dream of seeing a European

   

 



 
As King Abdullah’s power base
wanes, Barack Obama calls the shots
Telegraph [UK], by David Blair    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/28/2014 6:09:09 AM     Post Reply
King Abdullah is paramount leader of the House of Saud and master of a fifth of the world’s oil reserves, but he does a good impression of being a simple man. When he was Crown Prince, his tent was open to just about any male Saudi, so long as they were not too flamboyantly deferential. An obsequious petitioner would receive a prod from Abdullah’s bamboo camel cane. “You’re a man,” he would mutter. “What are you doing grovelling on the floor?” The Saudi king is unlikely to have this problem today when he receives President Barack Obama in Riyadh. Yes,

U.S. President Barack Obama has caused confusion after claiming yesterday that Kosovo held a UN-assisted referendum for self-determination--misleading people over the true origins of the country. The U.S. President used the example to hit out against Russia´s annexation of Crimea, but experts have noted that no such referendum took place, and implied that Obama´s "incredible mistake" should elicit a retraction or correction from the White House. [Snip] One source said the faux-pas was "the very last thing Kosovo and Serbia need" as the two seek to strengthen relations. Obama said in his speech yesterday: "...Kosovo only left Serbia after a

Breitbart London has learned that President Obama has undermined Georgia’s NATO membership application, in the second foreign policy gaffe of his European trip this week. Speaking at the press conference after the EU-US summit yesterday the US President wrongly suggested that Georgia “is not currently on a path to NATO membership”. In fact the country has been on the path to membership since 2008.[Snip] The mistake comes after Breitbart London revealed that Obama had wrongly claimed “Kosovo only left Serbia after a referendum was organised not outside the boundaries of international law, but in careful cooperation with the United States

Alabama congressional hopeful Will Brooke blows holes into a copy of the Affordable Care Act with three different guns in a new campaign ad, saying he wants to ´see how much damage we can do to this copy of Obamacare.´ Before resorting to a wood chipper decorated with a campaign sticker, the Republican candidate fires at the 1,000-page health insurance law with a .40 caliber Glock pistol, a .270 caliber Cooper rifle and an AR-15. The Daily Caller was first to report on the controversial campaign video, but Brooke isn´t the first to put guns in a political campaign ad.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having
