NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United-States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2012 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. I call upon the people of the United-States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and-to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.
The International Code of Conduct for Information Security raises a series of basic principles of maintaining information and network security which cover the political, military, economic, social, cultural, technical and other aspects. The principles stipulate that countries shall not use such information and telecom technologies as the network to conduct hostile behaviors and acts of aggression or to threaten international peace and security and stress that countries have the rights and obligations to protect their information and cyberspace as well as key information and network infrastructure from threats, interference and sabotage attacks. They advocate establishing a multilateral, transparent and democratic international Internet governance mechanism, fully respecting the rights and freedom of information and cyberspace with the premise of observing laws, helping developing countries develop the information and network technologies and cooperating on fighting cyber crimes.
Come on now. Is Obama really a "psychopathic megalomaniac"? I learned of Obama's problems today.- Not from Ron Paul supporters.- Not from Glenn Beck's Drudge wanna-be news site The Blaze. I read about Obama's psychosis from left wing Democrats. Everyday I get emails from former members of Move On, a pro-Democratic Party group that was famously active during the build-up to the Iraq War in 2003. They're complaining about one man: President Obama. In these emails, one thing is apparent.- When it comes to the left wing liberals, Obama is being left behind. The left was mostly raptured into political heaven four years ago when they elected Obama on bended knee.- He spoke about things dear to their hearts: closing Guantanamo Bay. Ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Getting tough on bankers. Guantanamo is still open. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are winding down, but the military presence remains.- (Smacks of imperialism. That's something the left hates as much as libertarians do.)- Then there's the president's bit about getting tough on bankers. Where has the White House come down hard on Wall Street? Fuhgeddaboudit. This is New York!
All over the world -- from the Americas to Europe to the Middle East to Africa and Asia -- companies in the Information & Communications Technology (ICT) sector face increasing government pressure to comply with domestic laws and policies in ways that may conflict with the internationally recognized human rights of freedom of expression and privacy. In response, a multi-stakeholder group of companies, civil society organizations (including human rights and press freedom groups), investors and academics spent two years negotiating and creating a collaborative approach to protect and advance freedom of expression and privacy in the ICT sector, and have formed an Initiative to take this work forward.
(Reuters) - Exploration company Israel Opportunity said on Sunday there are an estimated 6.7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 1.4 billion barrels of oil at its Pelagic fields offshore Israel, with a relatively high probability for geological success. The estimate, made by Texas-based petroleum consultant Ryder Scott, covers five different sites about 170 kilometers off Israel's coast, the company said in a statement.

According to a host of scientists, nuclear experts and researchers, were are facing exactly such a scenario -- and current efforts may not be able to stop it. When the Fukushima nuclear plants sustained structural damage and a catastrophic failure of their spent fuel cooling systems in the aftermath of the Japanese earthquake and Tsunami in 2011, it left the government of Japan, Tokyo Power and nuclear regulatory agencies around the world powerless to contain the release of deadly radiation. A year on, the battle for control of Fukushima continues to no avail.
According to U.S. Army General Albert N. Stubblebine (ret.) of the Natural Solutions Foundation, the situation is extremely serious and poses a significant danger to our entire civilization. Since TEPCO and the Japanese government have refused the entombment option (as the Russians did with Chernobyl) the world is at the mercy of nature. A mistake here would cause the deaths of tens of millions of people across the globe.
Since Russia forgave Syria of three quarters, or $9.6 billion, of its $13.4 billion Soviet-era debt and became its main arms supplier in 2006, Russia and Syria have conducted talks about allowing Russia to develop and enlarge its naval base, so that Russia can strengthen its naval presence in the Mediterranean. Amid Russia's deteriorating relations with the West, because of the 2008 South Ossetia War and plans to deploy a US missile defense shield in Poland, President Assad agreed to the port's conversion into a permanent Middle East base for Russia's nuclear-armed warships. Since 2009, Russia has been renovating the Tartus naval base and dredging the port to allow access for its larger naval vessels.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sailed on Saturday through a sliver of the Arctic Ocean, where the world's big powers are vying for vast oil, gas and mineral deposits becoming available as polar ice recedes. Clinton boarded a research ship in Tromso, a Norwegian town north of the Arctic Circle, to illustrate U.S. interests in a once inaccessible region where resources are up now for grabs and new sea routes between Europe and Asia are opening up. "A lot of countries are looking at what will be the potential for exploration and extraction of natural resources as well as new sea lanes," Clinton told reporters after taking a two-hour boat tour of the local fjord. In the middle of an eight-day trip to Scandinavia, the Caucasus and Turkey, Clinton said it was important to agree on "rules of the road in the Arctic so new developments are economically sustainable and environmentally responsible."
This is Alex from Oklahoma and I was going to share some info about the stupid discussion over Corn Syrup. I work in a Hot Dog factory where he use a lot of corn syrup. We store corn syrup in tanks out back and when the lines or pump gel up we often have to use bags of Corn Syrup Solids. Pretty sure this is what they use in coffee creamers. I found a wiki about crystalline fructose it is made from corn syrup http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystalline_fructose.

WebMD, the online health company under pressure from big shareholders to bolster its share price, is naming Cavan M. Redmond, a senior executive at Pfizer, as its chief executive. He will replace Anthony Vuolo, who was named the interim head after Wayne T. Gattinella resigned in January 2012. Mr. Vuolo will return to his previous position as chief financial officer.
The New York Times reports that President Obama has created an official "kill list" that he uses to personally order the assassination of American citizens. Considering that the government already has a "Do Not Call" list and a "No Fly" list, we hereby request that the White House create a "Do Not Kill" list in which American citizens can sign up to avoid being put on the president's "kill list" and therefore avoid being executed without indictment, judge, jury, trial or due process of law.
An Air Force investigative report says a Predator drone crashed in Afghanistan in January because of a loss of engine coolant. The aircraft and one air-to-ground Hellfire missile were destroyed on impact just outside a fence at Kandahar Air Base. There were no injuries or property damage.-The accident report was released by Air Combat Command at Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Virginia on Thursday. The Air Force estimates the value of the loss at $4.5 million. Among other things, the accident investigation board president found that a maintainer failed to detect damage on the coolant supply line during an engine inspection. The drone was operated by the 18th Reconnaissance Squadron, 432d Wing at Creech Air Force Base, Nev.
Internal federal documents show crashes by unmanned aerial vehicles are increasing the number of accident investigations undertaken by the military's flight-safety branch. The latest annual fleet airworthiness review, obtained by The Canadian Press under the access-to-information law, paints a compelling portrait of how military aviation is being changed by drones. Experts also say it underlines the need for countries and the international community to create target levels of safety for the remotely operated vehicles. "The overall (Canadian Forces) air accident rate less Cadets and UAVs has increased compared to 2009 and remains higher than the 10-year mean," said a July 7, 2011, briefing note for Defence Minister Peter MacKay. Between 2007 and 2010, there were 10 crashes of unmanned aerial vehicles, according to the airworthiness survey, dated June 10, 2011. Most the accidents involved engine failures and the majority of them happened in Kandahar during the war. Since the Canadian military started using drones in the early 2000s, there have been 42 accidents. Unlike crashes of manned planes, the air force has rarely acknowledged in public when one of their drones is lost. Unmanned aircraft do not make up the majority of accidents, but their increasing use has underlined an inevitability.
Somewhere under the rainbow, Osama Bin Laden's ghost is still having the last laugh. And, now it's at the expense of that bloated joke called the Department of Homeland Security. The agency has been shoving gay culture down agents' throats (double entendre intended). And straight agents at the DHS who feel ever-increasing homosexual-based propaganda, harassment, and discrimination in jobs and promotions at the agency and its sub-agencies, such as ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), the largest in the Department. It won't be long before one or more DHS agents file hostile work environment suits against the agency based on this pattern and practice, and I'm surprised it hasn't happened sooner. (As agents know, I am a practicing attorney and am available to pursue these kinds of employment discrimination cases.) Some agents say yesterday was the last straw, when all Homeland Security agents--the largest division of the agency is ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement)--were treated to the message, below, when they logged onto their computers at work.
I am pretty offended by this whole notion that I need to honor people because of what they do in the bedroom and with whom they are sleeping. Why is the government is endorsing and pushing homosexuality? I work with a bunch of hard workers and many of this found this DHS Pride thing ridiculous and demoralizing. I usually not one to complain, but I found this to be over the top. I thought I had seen it all, but not even close.
A midlevel appeals court said Thursday that it was no longer slander in New York to falsely say that someone is gay. The decision wiped out decades of rulings, saying that society no longer treated such labels as defamation. Without defamation, there is no longer slander, the court ruled unanimously.
USA Network's upcoming political/family drama series Political Animals has tapped Vanessa Redgrave for a provocative guest stint. The Oscar-winning actress will play Diane Nash, a lesbian Supreme Court Justice, the first openly gay member of the Court who is friend and mentor to Elaine Barrish (Sigourney Weaver). Greg Berlanti and Laurence Mark's six-episode series centers on divorced former First Lady and newly appointed Secretary of State Elaine Barrish who throws herself into the job after recovering from the dissolution of her marriage to ex-President Bud Hammond (Ciaran Hinds) and losing the presidential nomination. The character, who is certain to draw comparisons to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, tries to keep her family together, while simultaneously dealing with crises of the State Department and a hungry DC journalist (Carla Gugino) bent on destroying her career. In addition to Weaver, Redgrave joins fellow Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn on Political Animals for a tour de force acting trio that has 15 Academy Award nominations among them. The series, from Warner Horizon, is slated to debut July 15 and air in the Sunday 10 PM slot. This marks Redgrave's first series gig since her arc on Nip/Tuck.
So, solutions? This may be yet another public-health story that turns into a plea for more money and more research. The authors of the new editorial argue that tackling Chagas requires both finding new drugs and achieving a vaccine. But the first step in addressing a burgeoning epidemic is recognizing that it exists, and these papers might at least ring that warning bell.
The anti-smoking drug varenicline (Chantix) is considered a safe and effective treatment in helping people with schizophrenia quit smoking, according to new research by physicians at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. This is promising since patients with mental health disorders, especially schizophrenia, have higher rates of cigarette smoking and more difficulty quitting. "Individuals with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder have a greater severity of nicotine dependence and therefore require a more potent treatment plan than the general population," said Jill M. Williams, associate professor of psychiatry at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and lead investigator of the study.
My son's doctor told my 18 year old son he needed to get the HPV vaccine because "..the girl's are getting it and the guys need to step up and do their part." This doctor is very reputable, but I am kicking myself for him getting the series of three shots. He got the shots before we realized there could be health problems. Just an FYI. We live in Maine. Please try to keep this confidential. Thanks. Hope it helps.
