Hi Harry! Prince charms children in
classroom visit to Lesotho charity and
even gets an ´official´ chalk portrait

Daily Mail [UK], by Rebecca English

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/27/2013 5:15:15 AM

With a toothy grin and prominent ears it may not be the most flattering Royal portrait. But Prince Harry was delighted with the sketch on a South African classroom chalk board. As a royal you have to take everything in your stride and his morning´s work included a lesson in sign language, cooking up a batch of doughnuts - and proving something of a storm on the dancefloor. The third in line to the throne was a natural with the children he met today at the Kananelo Centre for the Deaf in Lesotho, which is supported by his charity, Sentebale.

Comments:
Very similar in many respects to some of the appearances the Mooch has made. But what a difference in the way Harry presents himself--he has a way of making the nuns and children the stars of the visit!

Comparing the reader comments with any of those following a Mooch appearance, well, people recognize real class when they see it. No expensive designer clothes here, just blue jeans and a plain white shirt that seems a little short for his torso!

Egypt crisis: Heavy gunfire
at Cairo mosque siege
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/17/2013 10:16:31 AM     Post Reply
There has been heavy gunfire at a mosque in Egypt´s capital, Cairo, during a stand-off with barricaded Muslim Brotherhood supporters.* Dozens have refused to leave the al-Fath mosque, fearing for their safety. TV images showed shots being exchanged between a gunman in the main minaret and security forces on the ground. Meanwhile the interim PM has proposed legally dissolving the Brotherhood, which is demanding the reinstatement of ousted leader Mohammed Morsi. The Brotherhood is technically a banned organisation anyway - it was officially dissolved by Egypt´s military rulers in 1954 - but it recently registered itself as a non-governmental organisation.

Egypt´s security forces have entered a mosque in Cairo where around 1,000 Islamists spent the night barricaded inside. Around 1,000 Muslim Brotherhood supporters were said to be holed up overnight in the al-Fath mosque, just off Ramses Square, which had been used as a field hospital during Friday´s bloodshed. At least 72 people were killed on Friday in what the Muslim Brotherhood called a "Day of Rage"- ignited by anger at security forces for clearing two sit-in demonstrations earlier in the week, leaving hundreds dead. The Brotherhood stated on Saturday that one of the sons of Brotherhood General Guide Mohammed

The world’s first bullet-proof COUCH!

A couch that can store up to 30 rifles and with cushions that can stop a .44 Magnum bullet at point blank range is now available in America. The world´s first ´CouchBunker´ comes complete with bullet-proof cushions fitted with straps so they can be worn as armour when on the move. It sounds like something from a Hollywood film, but the fire-proof weapon-store is now available to buy, in a range of colours and materials, for a mere $6,700. The ´CouchBunker´ is available in a wide range of styles, leather and fabric coverings, ´creating choices from game room casual to

US weapons experts claim North
Korea´s arsenal of missiles that

The North Korean long-range missiles that jangled nerves across the world when paraded through Pyongyang last month were ´almost certainly´ fake, government experts and independent researchers have claimed. The weapons, which were showcased in a lavish show of military muscle to mark the 60th anniversary of the Korean war armistice, were heavily criticised by researchers who insisted they would be unable to fly let alone unleash a deadly attack on the US. The experts came to the conclusion, following an investigation by NBC News, after studying a series of high-definition photographs taken during the parade, held on July 27. The

Obama took his wife, Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha on a late Friday morning bike ride through the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest in Martha´s Vineyard. The president rode with 15-year-old Malia and the first lady paired off with 12-year-old Sasha. Obama greeted onlookers as he rode by saying, ´Hey guys. Nice day, huh?´ Reuters´ reporter Jeff Mason asked, ´How´s it going?´ and ´Having a good time?´ Obama shouted, ´Having a great time, as always,´ as he pedaled away. Before heading out for the ride on his sixth full day of vacation, the White House said Obama was briefed

When I was four years old, a mob attacked our family farm. A crowd of men lit tyres and set them against our front gates, intending to burn their way in. My mother took me by hand to the back entrance, a footpath leading into the hills. “We’re going to play a game,” she told me. “If we have to come this way again, we must do it without making a sound.” My father was having none of it.

Shale gas is Rearden Metal

For my summer holidays I have been mostly reading Atlas Shrugged. Ayn Rand has her faults but, boy, was she prescient. One of the things she foresaw was the current nonsensical, dishonest, canting campaign against shale gas. In Atlas Shrugged it takes the form of Rearden Metal, the miracle technology which is going to transform the US economy if only the progressives will let it. But of course, Rand’s fictional progressives don’t want Reardon Metal to succeed any more than their modern, real-life equivalents want shale gas to succeed. Why not? For the same rag-bag of made-up, disingenuous reasons which

Archaeologists who discovered the skeleton beneath a Leicester car park last year decided with backing from the Ministry of Justice that it should be reinterred in the city´s cathedral. But their plan met with a strong wave of opposition from groups based in Yorkshire who claimed that the Plantagenet King should be buried at York Minster instead. In a hearing on Thursday, Mr Justice Haddon-Cave gave the group, known as the Plantagenet Alliance, permission to launch a High Court challenge in what he described as an "unprecedented" case. But he added that he hoped the matter could be settled without

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden launched an extraordinary attack on his father today claiming he has ´misled´ the media with ´false claims´ about him, adding: ´[He] doesn´t represent me in any way´. Snowden, whose whereabouts remain unknown, made the claim after his father, Lon, told US television he intended to travel to Russia to see his son at a secret date in the near future. Snowden Snr´s legal team claimed yesterday they no longer trust Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who broke the story, nor WikiLeaks, which was instrumental in helping the former CIA analyst flee US authorities in its wake.

Violent clashes across Egypt have killed at least 17 people as supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi take part in a ´march of anger´. Huge crowds have gathered in Cairo after the Muslim Brotherhood called on its supporters to converge on central Ramses Square. Angry scenes have resulted in clashes between Morsi supporters and the authorities, resulting in dozens of injuries and deaths. Gunfire rang out over a main Cairo overpass and police fired tear gas as clashes broke out after tens of thousands of Muslim Brotherhood supporters took to the streets. Police officers revealed earlier that they have been authorised to use

I know it’s tempting inside of Egypt to blame the United States or the West or some other outside actor for what’s gone wrong. We’ve been blamed by supporters of Morsi. We’ve been blamed by the other side, as if we are supporters of Morsi. That kind of approach will do nothing to help Egyptians achieve the future that they deserve. We want Egypt to succeed. We want a peaceful, democratic, prosperous Egypt. That´s our interest. But to achieve that, the Egyptians are going to have to do the work. President Obama’s statement yesterday on Egypt

The Washington Examiner is reporting that Obama "apparently" did not know about the extent of the violence in Egypt until National Security Adviser Susan Rice informed him of it on August 15.

Highlights of this interview were briefly posted on YouTube Wednesday (August 13) before being removed because the audio embarrassingly noted that Love and Obama played 15 hands of spades during the bulk of the raid on the bin Laden compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Oprah Winfrey and her co-star in Lee Daniels’ The Butler Forest Whitaker appeared on Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night to promote their film. During the interview, Anderson Cooper asked Winfrey to relate the historical themes of the movie to the modern day struggles for African-Americans, including the Trayvon Martin case. Winfrey said she “loves” the film in light of the discussion on race, because it “brings context” to the conversation. She described how the film begins with a lynching scene and ends with walking into President Obama’s office, showing how much has “happened in the span of one man’s lifetime

The former CIA contractor, who is currently in Russia with temporary asylum, handed over an internal audit and other top-secret documents detailing the illegal behaviour. Most of the infractions involved unauthorised surveillance of Americans or foreign intelligence targets in the United States, both of which are restricted by law and executive order, The Washington Post said. They ranged from significant violations of law to typographical errors that resulted in unintended interception of US emails and telephone calls, it said. The Post said the documents it obtained were part of a trove of materials provided to the paper by Mr Snowden

Sandra Fluke, a former "reproductive justice" advocate at Georgetown Law School, has a new mission: getting more women to run for elective office. In a brief interview on MSNBC Friday morning, Fluke was asked if Republicans are remiss in not asking more women to run for office. "I think there are a variety of concerns about how we get women into office," she responded. "It´s not only about asking women, which is something we need to do -- but also about making sure that the party leadership and those in elected office are looking for women to succeed them." Fluke,

Americans continue to harken to the call of the bodacious, idyllic, post-war, big-finned, fabulous ‘50s. Given a choice of any decade in the century, the public would most want to live in the 1950s, this according to a new YouGov/Economist poll. The 1980s comes in second - with some interesting partisan divides between Republicans and Democrats over the decades. And the numbers: 18 percent of Americans would live in the 1950s if they could go back in time; 20 percent of Republicans and 14 percent of Democrats agree. 15 percent of Americans overall would chose to live in the 1960s;

Barbara Bush, 31, called Clinton “unbelievably accomplished” in an upcoming interview with People magazine, saying she wants to see the former first lady mount a campaign.

BOSTON — With 82 days until his likely reelection as governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie laid out his clearest rationale yet Thursday for an almost-certain 2016 presidential campaign: He can win. Speaking privately to Republican leaders here for the party’s summer meeting, he touted his crossover appeal and presented himself as the party’s most electable option to win back the White House in 2016. “We are not a debating society,” Christie said. “We are a political operation that needs to win.” The 41-minute luncheon speech was closed to reporters at Christie’s insistence, sources said, but an attendee at the meeting offered a

WASHINGTON- Haven´t had a raise in a while? Well, neither has your member of Congress. This month, congressional salaries slid to their lowest inflation-adjusted levels since December 1990. When congressional approval ratings are at historic lows, congressional pay - $174,000 for rank-and-file senators and House members - may seem high. But some argue that shrinking paychecks for public service perpetuates a political culture where mostly the rich can afford to serve in office. Members of Congress have to maintain households in two locations, one being Washington, one of the most expensive housing markets in the country even for rentals.
