    The Great White Hunter ^ | 1/29/10 | Ryan Benson
    In these series of photos, you will see a polar bear come upon some sled dogs tethered to a steak. Normally you would think that a dog tethered to a steak would be lunch for a polar bear, but these pictures tell a completely different story. From what I can see, the polar bear just wanted to play and get a little brotherly love. The professional photographer who took these photos said, the bear came back every night that week to play with the dogs. Excellent photos, taken by Norbert Rosing when he was in the wilds around Canada’s Hudson...

  • A Tale of Two Gazas: Website Pictures Deny ‘Humanitarian Crisis’

    12/27/2009 6:48:46 PM PST · by Nachum · 343+ views
    INN ^ | 12/27/09 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
    (IsraelNN.com) The Arabic-language PalToday website, based in Gaza, recently posted pictures showing a world of plenty for residents, despite more than two years of reports that the area is suffering from a humanitarian crisis. However, its English website for foreign audiences showed a picture of misery, focusing on a girl who wanted her terrorist father freed by Israel. The pictures on the Arabic-language site were posted for the Eid al Adha Muslim festival, which recalls the forefather Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, who the Bible states was Isaac. The Muslim tradition substitutes him with Ishmael.

    For most of the past week, when someone typed "Michelle Obama" in the popular search engine Google, one of the first images that came up was a picture of the American first lady altered to resemble a monkey. On Wednesday morning, the racially offensive image appeared to have been removed from any Google Image searches for "Michelle Obama." Google officials could not immediately be reached for comment. Google faced a firestorm of criticism over the episode. First, it banned the Web site that posted the photo, saying it could spread a malware virus. Then, when the image appeared on another...

It is the first time the school has taken such measures.Parents criticised the move and said they felt there was no legal reason why they cannot take photos for personal use.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to be a tool of the ACLU left as she is working hard to get rid of the McCain/Graham amendment to the war spending bill which will bar the release of photographs showing alleged U.S. abuses of terrorists. Pelosi told MSNBC’s Ed Schultz on Wednesday, “I don’t think Congress should make an exception to FOIA" (freedom of information act). Of course Pelosi is reversing her earlier stance in which she said she would “support” the Obama administration’s push to keep the photos secret. The amendment was unanimously passed by the Senate. But a House-Senate conference...

    ENSCHEDE, Netherlands — In this small town just across the border from Germany, a small group of Dutch scientists and one irrepressible Austrian salesman have dedicated themselves to the task of reinventing one of the great inventions of the 20th century — Polaroid’s instant film. Digital cameras are ubiquitous, cheap and easy to use — the reasons Polaroid stopped making the film last year — so what this group in Enschede is attempting may seem hopelessly retrograde. But to them, that is exactly the point. They want to recast an outdated production process in an abandoned Polaroid factory for an...

    From today, anyone taking a photograph of a police officer could be deemed to have committed a criminal offence. That is because of a new law - Section 76 of the Counter Terrorism Act - which has come into force. It permits the arrest of anyone found "eliciting, publishing or communicating information" relating to members of the armed forces, intelligence services and police officers, which is "likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism". That means anyone taking a picture of one of those people could face a fine or a prison sentence of...

    Some days ago I visited the bazaar at Jalalabad, and took a bunch of colorful photographs and met many friendly people. Walking through Jalalabad, one could almost forget there was a war. But for the most part, this war is today being fought not in the cities, but the villages and small family compounds where most Afghanis live. Urban counterinsurgency can be incredibly dangerous, yet the population has a common life. City dwellers are dependent on civil services like water, sewage and electricity; they often have specialized roles in complex economies. Their feelings and opinions form a political aggregate which...

Last Friday, Pelosi adjourned the House without having done anything to address the country's energy problems. Republicans voted against adjournment, and since then, an energetic band of Republican Congressmen has carried out a guerrilla campaign against the thoughtless arrogance that Pelosi embodies and that typifies the modern Democratic Party. Initially, Republicans refused to go on vacation and instead stayed in the House chamber, continuing to discuss and debate the...

Then, at the peak of her career a few years ago, she disappeared—at least her face did. She began performing on Saudi-owned religious TV channels, with her face covered, chanting verses from the Qur'an. Conservative Saudi Arabian financiers promised her plenty of work, she says, as long as she cleaned up her act. "It's the Wahhabi investors," she says, referring to the strict form of Sunni Islam prevalent in Saudi Arabia. "Before, they invested in terrorism—and...

    Skin painted bright red, heads partially shaved, arrows drawn back in the longbows and aimed square at the aircraft buzzing overhead. The gesture is unmistakable: Stay Away. Behind the two men stands another figure, possibly a woman, her stance also seemingly defiant. Her skin painted dark, nearly black. The apparent aggression shown by these people is quite understandable. For they are members of one of Earth's last uncontacted tribes, who live in the Envira region in the thick rainforest along the Brazilian-Peruvian frontier. Thought never to have had any contact with the outside world, everything about these people is, and...
