http://tuxtweaks.com/2012/04/canonical-and-microsoft-to-join-forces-on-new-ui/

Recognizing that the dawn of the Post PC Era is upon us,
Microsoft and Canonical (the corporate sponsor behind Ubuntu Linux)
have both determined that they need to make a major move
to challenge Apple's iOS and Google's Android in the mobile device space. After deciding that it's best not to go it alone, Canonical and Microsoft announced today that they are forming a joint venture to develop their next generation of user interface.
The joint venture company will be called Micronical ...

Food: Explorer's Club Dinner
4:27
Once a year, the Big Apple hosts a unique dinner
—the annual gala of the Explorer's Club.
The highlight of the evening is the cocktail hour,
where the finger food might have legs, a face, or even a tongue.

The Titanic Never Sank: Part 1 [/5]

http://www.greattitanicconspiracy.co.uk/robin-gardiner

Robin Gardiner
In the industry which has sprung up around the story of the Titanic
author Robin Gardiner has never been afraid to attract controversy,
or answer his critics.
Since his first book "Riddle of the Titanic"
became a best seller in the 1990s he has worked tirelessly on researching firm evidence of his theory that the Titanic
had in fact been switched with her almost identical sister ship Olympic in a conspiracy involving government at the highest level,
and financiers whose names are still at the top of the international business world today.
His second book "The Ship That Never Sank"
attracted similar controversy, and many critics,
but none of whom have been able to convincingly argue
against a man
who will never answer a question with anything other than a fact.
Rather than join the war of words
which has gone on
via the Internet and media sources
he has carried on his research and written this startling third book
- the perfect answer to them all.
It contains startling new evidence
and is already attracting amazing pre-orders from across the world.
In Robin's own words:
"To understand why they sank the Titanic
we have first to know that they didn't"

http://www.brasschecktv.com/videos/the-war-on-terror-is-a-fraud-1/russ...-troops

...Al Qaeda's origins are rooted
in the Soviet-Afghan conflict,
in which the United States armed and trained radical
Muslims to fight the Russians in Afghanistan throughout the 1980's.
Al Qaeda was then used against the U.S.
and thus began the Global
War on Terror.
Now, we have Russian troops training with American troops
in COLORADO in 'joint anti-terror drills'.
The world is upside-down
and the Russians are coming by
invitation...

Meet Porter. The World's First Driving Dog in a MINI.

MINI Lebanon·
Dogs this smart deserve a home.
Every year, the SPCA need to find homes for thousands of dogs
just like Porter -- dogs who have been abused, abandoned, or just forgotten. Our dogs may be a motley bunch, but they're all smart
and they're all lovable. ..

Yes. Yes. Yes. And the sequel? The date? The chase?
The school run with puppies?
The police dog in a ... police car. The Korgi in a Bentley.
The gun dog in a 4x4?
The guide dog for the blind with a human passenger.
Of course you could already stick your dog
in a Google self-drive car and send it to get the newspaper.
Has it gone viral yet?
Has a dog run over a cat yet? Or better still, a person?
A dog has already gone into space.

...Three dogs are being taught to drive...
Monty, a giant schnauzer, Ginny, a whippet cross,
and Porter,an old beardie cross
are learning simple movements
necessary for driving a car, such as moving the gear stick
and holding a steering wheel.
The canine pupils have already put their skills to the test
behind the wheel of a practice car, with a trainer on hand
in the passenger seat to help with the steering.
Animal trainer Mark Vette said “There’s no excuses.
We’ve got to get in there and show that dogs can drive cars.
It’ll be ‘dial-a-dog’ the week after this.”
The dogs are being taught to start a car, accelerate and steer.

President Obama needs your help
starting World War III! Find out how you can help!
“Yes, we can start World War Three!”
'“The $1.6 trillion that we raise
will help create a war that truly puts the liberal in neo-liberal.
There will be millions of troops, thousands of organic grass-fed bombs,
hybrid Prius tanks, rockets controlled by iPads
and drones that play The Lumineers while they attack.”

http://www.alternet.org/food/say-it-aint-so-can-soda-day-can-increase-...k-cance

...Lund's study is the latest in a roll-call of soda cancer flags.
Drake and colleagues followed 8,000 men aged 45-73 for
an average of 15 years, and found that 40 percent of those
who downed barely 12 ounces of soda a day
were likely to contract a disease that kills a million of them a year.
Previous research has warned of increased risk of esophageal cancer. University of Minnesota School of Public Health professor of epidemiology Mark Pereira recently led a study finding
that 87 percent of his over 60,000 test subjects
were likely to develop pancreatic cancer,
whose median survival for 80 percent of afflicted individuals
hovers between six to 10 months.
The soda cancer warning signs continue to siren.

...But these seem like semantic scientific arguments.
The druggists and other whitecoats who created sodas,
as well as the power suits who capitalize
on their formidable market in industry and government,
can mount infinitely regressive causality arguments
until their nest eggs are well feathered by soda cancer's complexities.

But the hyperconsuming public they've encouraged
will inevitably wake to a day when those same parties,
who once told them it was just fine to drink Cokes
to teach the world to sing,
are instead saying they should worry
about having only months to live,
because they drank too many Cokes a day to teach the world to sing...

Say It Ain't So -- A Can of Soda a Day Can Increase
the Risk of Cancer for Men by 40 Percent?

PostPosted: Mon Dec 02, 2013 8:45 pm    Post subject: safe AND secure

http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2013/11/nearly-two-decades-nuc...r-launc
Today I found out that during the height of the Cold War,
the US military put such an emphasis on a rapid response to an attack
on American soil, that to minimize any foreseeable delay
in launching a nuclear missile,
for nearly two decades they intentionally set the launch codes
at every silo in the US to 8 zeroes...
Oh, and in case you actually did forget the code,
it was handily written down on a checklist handed out to the soldiers.
As Dr. Bruce G. Blair,
who was once a Minuteman launch officer,
stated:
Our launch checklist in fact instructed us, the firing crew,
to double-check the locking panel in our underground launch bunker
to ensure that no digits other than zero
had been inadvertently dialed into the panel...
-- Karl Smallwood,
For Nearly Two Decades the Nuclear Launch Code at all Minuteman Silos in the United States Was 00000000
