    Geneva (AFP) - The concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere has passed an ominous milestone, ushering the planet into "a new era" of climate change, the UN said Monday. For the first time on record, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere averaged 400 parts per million (ppm) in 2015, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said in its latest Greenhouse Gas Bulletin. CO2, the main greenhouse gas driving climate change, has previously passed the 400 ppm threshold on certain months in specific locations but never on a globally averaged basis, WMO said. The UN agency also reported that...
  • University Students Are Unable to Read a Whole Book

    University students are increasingly unable to read a whole book as they simply don’t have the concentration spans required, nor are they able to understand complex, nuanced arguments, academics have said. Lecturers at leading British universities are having to actively encourage students to read beyond the set texts, and have noticed that students are increasingly unwilling to read whole texts. They say they believe internet culture is to blame, as young people nowadays are used to receiving arguments in the form of 800-1000 word articles. Anything beyond that, they say, is now proving too challenging. “Incoming undergraduates have had their...

  • Bill creates detention camps in U.S. for 'emergencies'

    Rep. Alcee L. Hastings, D-Fla., has introduced to the House of Representatives a new bill, H.R. 645, calling for the secretary of homeland security to establish no fewer than six national emergency centers for corralling civilians on military installations. The proposed bill, which has received little mainstream media attention, appears designed to create the type of detention center that those concerned about use of the military in domestic affairs fear could be used as concentration camps for political dissidents, such as occurred in Nazi Germany. The bill also appears to expand the president's emergency power, much as the executive order...
  • CNN's Phillips: Obama Is All About 'Bringing Everybody Together'

    On yesterday's CNN Newsroom, anchor Kyra Phillips made no effort to curb her enthusiasm for Barack Obama. She spoke with feminist author and Democratic activist Naomi Wolf about a recent cover of Ms. Magazine featuring Obama in a Superman pose. Some feminists took exception to the cover; others, like Wolf, did not. As the segment ended, Kyra Phillips summed up as follows: PHILLIPS: Well, if anything, I think this just exemplifies how Barack Obama is going to be out of the box on everything, whether it's who he decides to have speak at the inauguration or what covers he decides...

    THE Gaza Strip has been turned into a "concentration camp" by two weeks of Israeli bombardments, said a senior Vatican official. Cardinal Renato Martino, the Vatican's justice and peace minister, was quoted by the online Italian daily Il Sussidiario. "Let's look at the conditions in Gaza: these increasingly resemble a big concentration camp," said Cardinal Martino.

    ROADSIDE distractions ranging from advertisements featuring scantily-clad women to Christmas lights are ruining motorists' concentration, with a quarter admitting to veering out of their lane while driving. A survey of 2,000 adults in the UK showed that one in four had admitted veering out of their lane because their attention had wandered to an off-road object. Advertisements, flashing signs and Christmas decorations caused a third of motorists to lose concentration, the poll found. Many motorists said that they were distracted for up to five seconds, which equates to the length of a football pitch if the car was travelling at...

    There are 600 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States. The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a mass exodus of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down...
  • Korea’s Underground Railroad - (moving story;..and heartbreaking, too)

    Our area takes great pride in the role many organizations and residents here played in the Underground Railroad during the years leading up to the Civil War. Thousands of slaves were freed because of the courage of individuals who either housed fugitive slaves or went south to escort them to freedom here in the north. It is a heritage we can be proud of. Today, there is a similar effort underway. It is happening in a land divided along lines of north and south. Race is a component. Other nations are involved. And the bravery of conductors and engineers on...

    It's a given that The New York Times ignored the Holocaust, a sin of omission confessed by the paper itself. Now we have a book that says it ain't so — that from the beginning to the end of World War II, The Times published 1,186 stories about the extermination of the European Jews. It just buried the stories inside. "Buried by The Times" is the title of the book, and it's more damning by far than anything the critics ever said about the paper's coverage of the worst mass murder in history. This book proves that The Times not...

    Sixty years ago, on April 15, 1945, Lieutenant John Randall, then a 24-year-old SAS officer, was on a reconnaissance mission in northern Germany. He and his driver were heading down the road to Lüneberg when he noticed a large, imposing iron gate in front of a track leading off into the woods to their left. Curious, Randall decided to investigate, and so discovered one of the most horrifying aspects of Hitler's Germany. "We were totally unprepared for what we had stumbled across,'' says Randall, now 85, sitting opposite me in the Special Forces Club in London. ''I just drove through...

    Israel Says Never Again With New Holocaust Museum By Joel Leyden Israel News AgencyJerusalem----March 13....It is not the Eurovision TV song festival or the Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team entering the finals of the European championship. There are no ads or promos on Israel television. It is an event which entered my email box as hundreds do from the Israel Government Press Office. But this event was quite different. It talked about a new holocaust museum opening in Jerusalem. At first I questioned if this was a new wing or an extension dedicated by a wealthy contributor in the US...
  • More on mercury: scientists puzzled by drop in atmospheric mercury concentrations

    cientists Puzzled by Decline of Atmospheric Mercury WASHINGTON, DC, June 10, 2003 (ENS) - Though the amount of gaseous mercury in the atmosphere has dropped sharply from its peak in the 1980s and has remained relatively constant since the mid-1990s, scientists cannot figure out why it has declined. The lower numbers, the scientists say, may result from control measures undertaken in western Europe and North America, but a scientific study of atmospheric mercury says they cannot reconcile the amounts actually found with current understanding of natural and human sources of the element. An international group of scientists, led by...

    In the media dungeon By Molly Ivins Creators Syndicate This is a gross scandal. The Center for Public Integrity has a stunning study out on the concentration of ownership in telecommunications. The even more stunning news is that the Federal Communications Commission, which theoretically represents you and me, is about to make all of it even worse. And behind this betrayal of the public trust is nothing but rotten, old-fashioned corruption. It's the old free-trip-to-Vegas ploy, on a grand scale. The Public Integrity people examined the travel records of FCC employees and found that they have accepted 2,500 trips, costing...
