  • The 11 cities most likely to run out of drinking water - like Cape Town

    Cape Town is in the unenviable situation of being the first major city in the modern era to face the threat of running out of drinking water. However, the plight of the drought-hit South African city is just one extreme example of a problem that experts have long been warning about - water scarcity. Despite covering about 70% of the Earth's surface, water, especially drinking water, is not as plentiful as one might think. Only 3% of it is fresh. Over one billion people lack access to water and another 2.7 billion find it scarce for at least one month...

    he Lost City of Atlantis may be little more than a fable but for the residents of Jakarta, the watery fate of that metropolis is an all-too-real threat. That is because the Indonesian capital is sinking faster than any city on Earth, by up to 25cm per year in some places, with experts warning large parts of it will be underwater within a decade. Ministers are currently building sea walls to shield the residents from disaster, but that does little more than delay the inevitable, since it is not the ocean rising but the ground dropping that is causing the...

    A mezzanine floor has collapsed at the Jakarta stock exchange building (IDX), injuring dozens of people. Dramatic CCTV footage captured the moment of collapse, which sent a group of more than 30 students gathered on the mezzanine crashing into the lobby. The area was evacuated and cordoned off by police, but trading has now resumed. Police say 72 people were hurt and are being treated in three different hospitals in Jakarta, but there have been no fatalities.

    Following another week of dust-ups between the media and President Donald Trump, his predecessor shared a bit of wisdom Saturday from the other side of the world about tolerance and taking the daily news cycle in stride. “I wasn’t worried about what was in the newspapers today,” former President Barack Obama said during a nostalgic visit to Indonesia’s capital, his childhood home. “What I was worried about was, ‘What are they going to write about me 20 years from now when I look back?’” Obama was greeted by a crowd of thousands, including leaders, students and businesspeople, in Jakarta, where...

    The Christian governor of Indonesia’s capital city of Jakarta was sentenced to two years in prison on Tuesday for committing blasphemy against Islam. While running for governor, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, also known as “Ahok,” said his opponents were inaccurately citing the Quran to say voters cannot vote for a non-Muslim. Despite trying to make Islam seem like a more tolerant religion, Purnama’s comments were reportedly edited and shared in a video that caused mass protest and outrage from the Islamic community. On Nov. 2016, at least 200,000 Islamic protesters took to the streets of Jakarta and demanded Purnama be thrown in jail...

    Former President Barack Hussein Obama's former tranny nanny talks about how hard it has been for him/her and other transgender males to live in Indonesia, the world's largest Muslim country. She goes on to describe the pride she felt upon learning that the little child she cared for many years earlier had grown up to become America's President! Even though her official name is Turdi--that of a male--Evie picked her female sounding name "because it sounded sweet," according to a lengthy article by the online news aggregator, The Blaze.

Police denied hard-line groups permission to march through the city.

    What is happening? Jakarta’s governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, better known by his nickname Ahok, will face the first day of his trial on charges of blasphemy on Tuesday. Ahok, a Christian of Chinese descent, angered religious conservatives after he referenced a verse from the Islamic holy book, Al-Maidah 51 of the Qur’an, on the campaign trail in September. Ahok rather boldly told voters they should not be duped by religious leaders using the verse to justify the claim that Muslims should not be led by non-Muslims.An edited version of that speech was later posted online with several words omitted, making...

    The capital of the world’s biggest Islamic country was the scene Friday of the latest in a series of mass demonstrations by Muslims demanding that the Christian governor of Jakarta be punished for “blasphemy.” More than 22,000 police officers were deployed to maintain control of the “Defend Islam” rally, which drew an estimated 150,000 people. The protesters already chalked up one victory earlier this week, when the Attorney General’s Office announced that it will proceed with a trial against Gov. Basuki Tjahaja Purnama. Unappeased, they continue to demand his immediate arrest. The U.S. Embassy closed its consular section Friday and...

    Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was "contemptuous" toward security agents and even put officials traveling with her in “unnecessary danger” by pursuing a photo op for her "election campaign" in a risky area of Jakarta during a 2009 visit, according to a security agent interviewed by the FBI. The allegations surfaced in documents released Monday by the FBI in connection with the investigation into Clinton's private email practices. Much of the documents center on internal disputes over email classification levels, but the interview with the unnamed diplomatic security agent offers a window into how her own detail viewed her actions...

All around the base of the waterfall were people and they were enjoying the refreshing spray and droplets covering them as a beautiful misty spray and the droplets just seemed to hang in the air effortlessly and the sound of the waterfalls was the roar of His Voice.
