    When it comes to computer technology, thin is always in. It’s indisputable that the thinner, lighter, clearer, the better when dealing with the latest computer gadget. This keyboard is the epitome of the high standards expected of the technological version of the fashion industry. It’s based on image as well, that is, image recognition technology.

    Copenhagen (BH) – Moments after the International Olympic Committee announced that Chicago had been eliminated as a host site for the 2016 Olympic games, a group of US politicians, celebrities, and media figures held a press conference to protest the decision as “based on racism.” The group, which includes two former US Presidents, distributed a release with the headline: “I.O.C. and K.K.K. are not O.K. with the U.S.A.” President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle, and talk show host Oprah Winfrey - all Chicagoans – had traveled to Denmark in the hope that their popularity would lend some star appeal to...

With the Seabreacher you can jump, dive and roll through the water at speeds of up to 40mph, or 20mph underwater. There’s a few different models of this beauty from Innespace Productions who took ten years to develop. For the average person it apparently is no sweat in learning how to drive and maintain a Seabreacher however the sticker price for all...

Movie producers paid two Sukhoi Su-35 pilots to fly without a canopy at Mach 2.0, and have one of them eject in what probably is one of the most dangerous stunts ever filmed. While on this speed I even managed to pull out my fingers in glove for an inch or two outside - it became heated very fast because of immense friction force plane undergoes with the air. That's what the pilot who remained in the cabin said he did after his crazy comrade ejected, landing safely on the ground. I don't know...

    What do Reno, Orlando and Las Vegas have in common? To some pockets of the federal government, they just seem like too much fun. Instead, employees at some big agencies, like the U.S. Department of Agriculture, are being encouraged to host meetings in more buttoned-down places such as St. Louis, Milwaukee or Denver. Travel-industry lobbyists say government policies have essentially resulted in a blacklist of some destinations, such as Las Vegas, top, and Orlando, Fla., above, where Walt Disney World is located. ..When a conference planner for MGM Mirage's New York-New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas tried to...

    The Shia minority in Saudi Arabia has declared independence from the Kingdom, creating a country called the "The Republic of Eastern Arabia". The newly founded nation, which has received little media coverage, is formed in the eastern areas of Qatif and Al-Hasa, a website close to leading Shi'a cleric Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Namr reported. "The decision of the proclamation of the Republic was based on the demands of the people of the region," the website added, denying any foreign links for the decision. Al-Namr, known for his fiery rhetoric, was the source of major turmoil earlier this year when he...

    For months, this newspaper has opposed President Obama's bold, forward-thinking agenda. What a colossal mistake. We realize now that we were merely clinging to the discredited ideas of the past. Holding on to disposable relics like tradition, religion and the Constitution only delays the glorious new world that awaits us all. President Obama has shown America a bright, glimmering future full of widely shared prosperity and national nice-to-each-otherness. Only by universally embracing the President's vision can this nation succeed and prosper. Resistance will bring nothing but social distortion, widespread panic and madness. President Obama has shown us all that to...

Perjury, to convict the innocent would carry the penalty of the crime the innocent was accused of. a.

    So I'm looking to upgrade the old armory a bit. The 12GA pump Mossberg is great, especailly as the area in the US I live is quite urban. Nothing like a good 12GA to serve well in very close quarters. But a pump leaves something lacking... Total firepower before reloading, and a slow reload. So my attention has drifted to the Saiga magazine fed 12 GA shotgun. My local dealer has some in stock - 10 shell clips are available as well. Suddenly, having 10 shells - and being able to reload with another 10 in just 4 seconds -...
