@Regrann from @bbcnews - 13 JAN: US intelligence agencies are weighing claims that Moscow is holding compromising information about President-elect Donald Trump. Unsubstantiated allegations suggest his election team colluded with Russia and that there were salacious videos of his private life, including claims of using prostitutes at a hotel in Moscow. Mr Trump has called the claims "made-up facts by sleazebag political operatives". But how did the public come to find out about them?

16 JAN: At least 26 people have died during a 14-hour riot in a Brazilian prison, police said. On Saturday afternoon, violence erupted between members of rival gangs at Alcacuz prison, starting a riot which lasted until a dawn raid the following day. Prison officials said some of the victims had been decapitated in what is the third major riot in Brazil this year - nearly 100 inmates died in riots earlier this month in prisons in the states of Amazonas and Roraima.

Mark Rego Is Proof That ‘What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger’, Literally!

Mark Rego has battled and survived cancer twice, visited 111 countries, worked with orphanages and is the host for Bangalore’s favorite pub quiz show, Booze and Brains, in Watson’s, Vasanth Nagar. He has also been featured on BBC News for all the work he does for destitute children. This tall, charmingly entertaining man and father of two grown daughters was also a chef, and planned the menu for his food joint, Peppa Zing here in Bangalore.
These days though Mark keeps himself busy emceeing all over the country, a professional one for over 20 years, he says that he doesn’t consider it as a hardcore career for himself. He says that he hosts parties and shows only because he loves doing so. When asked how his family feels about his out-of-the-box career, he says, “As long as the bills are paid and food is on the table, my family is alright with it.” Adding further positives of this career, he says, “In fact, I have a lot more time to be with them compared to any other full time job.” Read more on -https://goo.gl/TrVFrB

13 JAN: A US search-and-rescue team went up a steep, snowy Utah mountain to try to rescue a dog stuck on a narrow ledge above a 50-foot cliff. The Utah County Sheriff's Office posted a video showing highlights of the operation, but it ended without the animal getting off the mountain near Provo. The team called off the rescue at nightfall and left her with food and hand warmers. Watch to see how the story ends.

BBC haberleri izliyorum. Dünyada yalnız 8 adamın geliri, dünyanın yarısının gelirinden fazla, diyor.. malum isimler işte; mark zuckerberg, bill gates vb

Bu haber bizdeki gibi magazinleştirilmiyor. Mark'ın geliri ile şu kadar ev alınır, mükemmel bir evde oturuyor, bu kadar araba alınır gibi.
Ülkenin önde gelen vakıflarından Oxfam yetkilileri ile durumun adaletsizliği ve ihtiyaç sahipleri için daha fazla ne yapılabilir konuşuluyor.
Cidden korkunç bir haber ama ya... bir şirketin geliri birkaç ülkenin milli geliri ile eşit. Bir şirketin sahibi birkaç ülkenin sahip olduğu zenginlikten fazlasına sahip... Bu Servet sahibi için Harika, dünyanın geri kalanı işin dehşet verici durumun dediği şey aslında "üretirsen" kendine de ülkene de kazandırırsın.
Dün benzer bir haber vardı; dünyanın en iyi 10 şirketinden 8'i ABD'ye ait diye. Büyük güç olmanın yolu; üretmek ise... Başka bişey söylemeye gerek yok sanırım... #oxfam #bbcnews #zenginin #malı #zügürdün #cenesini #yorar #üreten #insan #kazanir #bilim #kültür #düsünme #eleştiri #kültürü #kazandırır #ülkeme #üreten #insan #lazım #insallah #diyelim

Kohunlich Mayan Ruins: Temple of Masks
Bottom right: they roled the heads of their captured neighbors down these steps just a few hundred years ago - that's a mere heartbeat in historic terms.
We need to guard against recent inclinations to fear our neighbors. Building great walls and temples like this seemed necessay in less enlightened times before the Magna Carta, the printing press, communications, satellites, diplomacy and NGOs (Trump can't see this from his 5th Avenue cave).
Since we have evolved socio-politically over the past 500 years or so, simple caveman solutions to complex modern day problems will not work. As much as Donald Trump would like to have people believe so, he cannot act in good conscience without first learning his job, and enlightening himself on world affairs and diplomatic nuances. Instead, he shows complete disinterest in learning and is surrounding himself with b-list neocons. Moreover, Trump needs everything Dorothy's friends asked for in the Wizard of Oz: the Tin Man wanted a heart, the Scarecrow wanted a brain, and the Lion wanted courage. For those things, they all humbly asked. Realdonaldrump is too big to ask for "real" help; he covers for his shortcomings with bombast while he beats his chest. Hence, his whacky cabinet picks. It's a narcissistic, vicious cycle. We are doomed with him at the helm as he punches and counter-punches like a boxer drunk on himself.
In conclusion, building walls and mass deportations will only exacerbate the larger immigration issue and cause socio-economic upheaval, destroy families and feed fear...a fear we've worked hard to overcome.
Beatings one's chest feels good (in therapy) but in the real world it may give the other apes pause to revert to not long forgotten ape ways, sneak up behind you, lop off your head, then roll it down the bloody steps or, as the case might be, catapult it over the wall.
