Anti-Fascism, Lies and Videotape

Part I: anti-fascism

It becomes obvious that the question of just how much power will the world splashed with the second wave of economic crisis. Each such crisis brings with it profound social upheaval: the fundamental causes any review mechanism upon which our societies and the basis of our valued systems. Each carries with it the danger of "rightist reaction", unfortunately, very typical for the European continent, with a well-known history of the darkness behind him. When thinner wallets and guilty of the national governments, banks, funds and corporations are not at hand, the BES pulls on reserve positions. A reserve always find one way or another minority group, the neighboring country, scapegoats, individuals, lodges and conspirators who are here to steal our bread from the table, not infrequently for centuries in the conspiracy against us. Damn simplification of reality governments psychology of frightened people. A more frightened people in the group elaborated an ideology - it leads to conflict, almost guaranteed. Thus, every economic crisis inevitably brushed against the theme of tolerance and hatred, the Left and Right, the national economy and international economy, and - typical for the dark thoughts of the European twentieth century - the themes of fascism and anti-fascism.

It is not true that Serbia, a country that historically characterized by the existence of two anti-fascist movement during World War II - a feature that boasts only Poland, as far as I know, and I hope that someone will correct me if Gres - Fascists had among its ranks. Back in 1935, while iron in Europe only minted for the evil that would occur in a year on all fronts, the movement choir under the leadership of Demetrius Ljotić achieved 0.84% ​​of all elections in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. Since the introduction of the multiparty system 1990th The sorts of things we were laughed as he attempted to pose as government or opposition in this country, but I'm afraid no one was quite as funny.

Part of another: lie

In the past few years, however, totally unconnected with the matter any aspects of the economic crisis, anti-fascism as a kind of political orientations outlined present in public discourse in Serbia. When you scratch a bit, you realize that today is mostly used as a last ideological line of defense of those whose political interests were tied to start Yugoslav project, as soon as you mention the word restitution - they were anti-Fascists and fought against the invaders, as they mention the victims of post-war communist pogrom - But we were anti-fascists. OK, you were anti-fascists. But we know it. It is a fact, it was found, and this is the most honorable that could be and should be to be in these horrible, enemy thirties and forties of the twentieth century. But, what about those tens of thousands of Serbian citizens after executed II War? And to return the money, do not forget.

Now that Serbia was the anti-fascist in those terrible years, and that without measures honor and responsibility passed to us so that we are its citizens now, over there, and there will be no dispute. And we will never forget in this country. Only it is not misused for the purposes of vulgar political calculation, because it is so lowers prices, prices which many of our ancestors followed their lives.

Part Third: Video Tapes

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. I always thought that Shakespeare's sentences somehow very unhappy at the history of Denmark and Dance, far from being familiar with the historical circumstances under which the famous Englishman created and to understand where did the inspiration that he was just Denmark was on his mind, but we always come through head - why Denmark when there are so many countries in which the same predicate can be applied more evident.

Public holiday and pay tribute to two of them will be one to eight four p.m. Robi and the other eighteen years - a joint criminal enterprise, so? - And the verdict of the Tribunal. Awkward. I did not disgrace you. It is almost painful to watch Josipovic to be subject to pressure and stands up, the man felt human need to congratulate him that he managed to remain the head office, not to mention the fact that the move must be to turn around and go at a time when an event transcended all border elementary ethics. Kosor - knows what he has to say and when to get support in some future election. In fact, gentlemen, is the difference between you and us: what should our Prime Minister or President, to give yourself something like this, probably provoked demonstrations against him in the middle of Belgrade. After saying all these Balkan same, I would not say. Because Serbian statesmen today can be put under the nail, "regional leaders" - even without reference to the dark Balkan history of the Second World War, which, in the context of the above discuss terms, for some unquestionable clear, for some very problematic.

No comment.

Aliens could to destroy Earth in order to save other planets

All those who hope that the first aliens who arrive on Earth to be friendly as ET will experience shock, say scientists. They warn that the aliens are not satisfied while watching our planet due to large emission reductions, so it is possible that they were preparing for an attack to protect the other planets.

As he writes, "Guardian" long-term observations showed that the changes in the Earth's temperature has escaped control. Researchers from NASA and the University of Pennsylvania anticipate that our intergalactic neighbors will soon be seen as a major threat. Sean Domagal Goldmen and his team of experts from NASA drew up a list of possible situations unless we come into contact with other living beings.

NASA's report to address the question of whether the contact with alien holy represented the benefit or detriment of mankind and indicated a possible positive, neutral and adverse outcome.
In the best case scenario is the following: that the information exchanged with aliens in order to overcome hunger, poverty and disease or to victories and learn much more about their technology.

- In this scenario, the profit of mankind not only what it could to defeat big rivals, but also the opportunity to cancel the extraterrestrial intelligent technology - according to a report.

As a neutral possibility led to the indifference of humanity because it has not had the opportunity to further communicate with other planets, including the fact that nations are like "being green" toodisinterested to join us in the "galactic circle."

The most harmful results to coincide with the apocalyptic Hollywood movie and the scenario of "D-Day", the destruction of planet Earth and the diseases that would "erase" the whole population.

Scientists also warn that the possibility of alien attack increases with the zooming and expanding population.

- Mankind will probably only now enter a phase of rapid expansion that might be discovered alien technology for changing the composition of the earth's atmosphere through the emission of harmful gases - NASA experts say, adding: "This scenario is just one more reason to prevent the further spread of the population and reduce the impact on global ecosystems. It would be very important to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, because the composition of the atmosphere can be seen from other planets.”

Year of billion-dollar disasters

The Wood family of Piedmont, Oklahoma, barely made it to their storm-proof safe room before a huge tornado struck their house in late May. The Woods survived unhurt but the three-story house was destroyed and their dog, Roxie, disappeared.

The family got a bit of relief when Roxie was found safe almost two miles away a day later.

"I was very happy. I started dancing," 8-year-old Paisley Wood told CNN's Ed Lavandera shortly after the storm.

That storm was part of a six-day outbreak of an estimated 180 tornadoes that caused 177 deaths, including 157 in Joplin, Missouri. Total losses across 15 states were greater than $7 billion, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The United States has already seen nine weather disasters this year that have caused $1 billion or more in damage, tying the record set in 2008. The total for all the disasters is about $35 billion.

"The year 2011 has already established itself in the record books as a historic year for weather-related disasters, and it is not over -- in fact, hurricane season is just getting under way," NOAA Deputy Administrator Kathryn D. Sullivan told the Senate Appropriations Committee in late July.

Here are the other eight, according to NOAA, from most to least recent:

Upper Midwest flooding, summer

The Missouri and Souris rivers flooded across the Upper Midwest. About 11,000 people were forced to evacuate Minot, North Dakota, and thousands of acres of farmland flooded along the Missouri. Five people were killed, and estimated losses exceed $2 billion and counting.

Mississippi River flooding, spring-summer

Heavy rain and melting snow in the Ohio Valley caused historicflooding along the Mississippi River and its tributaries. At least two people died, and the estimated economic loss ranges from $2 billion to $4 billion.

Southern Plains/Southwest drought, heat wave and wildfires, spring-summer

Drought, heat wave and wildfires have devastated parts of Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Kansas, Arkansas and Louisiana. The total direct losses are well over $5 billion, and the drought continues.

Southeast/Ohio Valley/Midwest tornadoes, April 25-30

An outbreak of 305 tornadoes over central and Southern states killed 327 people, including 240 in Alabama. Several of the storms struck heavily populated areas, including Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, and Huntsville in Alabama and Chattanooga, Tennessee, causing the damage costs to soar to more than $9 billion.

Midwest/Southeast tornadoes, April 14-16

Just a few days earlier, an outbreak of 160 tornadoes struck 10 central and Southern states, killing 38 people, 22 of them in North Carolina. Total property losses exceeded $2 billion.

Southeast/Midwest tornadoes, April 8-11

One week before that, an estimated 59 tornadoes in nine states didn't kill anyone but caused more than $2.2 billion in damage.

Midwest/Southeast tornadoes, April 4-5

In the first week of April, 46 tornadoes struck 10 central and Southern states, causing nine deaths and doing $2.3 billion damage.

Groundhog Day Blizzard, January 29-February 3

A large winter storm struck many states in the central, al, eastern and northeastern U.S., leaving 36 people dead. Total losses exceeded $2 billion.

"It's been extraordinary," said Frank Nutter, president of theReinsurance Association of America. (Reinsurers provide financial backing to insurance companies.) "The earlier losses are really out of line with historic patterns. It's not unusual, of course, to have thunderstorm losses or tornado losses in the spring, but the scope of these has just been extraordinary."

Because insurance and reinsurance are global businesses, those losses are piled on top of those incurred during floods in Australia, an earthquake in New Zealand and the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Nutter said. Nevertheless, the insurance industry is in solid financial shape, he said.

Still to come is the height of hurricane season, which Nutter's industry tends to look at as the "big-ticket" loss season. NOAA is predicting 14 to 19 named storms, including seven to 10 hurricanes, as many as five of which could be Category 3 (with 111 mph winds) or higher.

Early warning saves lives, NOAA's Sullivan told the Appropriations Committee.

"The tornado warning for the Joplin area was issued 24 minutes before the tornado struck, a substantial improvement over the five-minute advance warnings that were typical just two decades ago," she said in asking the panel to fund the next generation of weather satellites.

Preparation also can save lives and property. The Federal Emergency Management Agency offers tips for disaster readiness at After disaster strikes, victims can apply for relief at FEMA field offices or

Insurance industry data show the costs of disasters are rising, even when adjusted for inflation. That's largely due to concentrated building of homes and businesses in vulnerable places, Nutter said.

"The reality is that our society has moved increasingly to areas with the greatest exposure to natural catastrophes along our coasts and rivers and invaded the natural landscape in areas susceptible to wildfire and drought," Nutter told the Senate Appropriations Committee in July. "Where these areas once served as natural habitats to wildlife and buffers from natural hazards, they are now populated with communities and infrastructure."

The value of developments along the U.S. coasts from New York to Florida and around the Gulf of Mexico to Texas exceeds $9 trillion, Nutter told CNN; $2 trillion of that value is in Florida alone, he said. More stringent building codes and restrictions on development in high-risk areas are essential to curtailing losses of life and property, Nutter said.

"Our population is moving closer and closer to the water. We're developing more low-lying and barrier islands every day, and along with that comes a heightened level of flood-related and water-related risks," said Fred Malik, who manages the Fortified for Safer Living programs of the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety.

"...If we're going to have development in these areas, what are we going to do to mitigate the risks?" he said.

Inland, the risks from high winds and fires abound. Malik said homeowners everywhere should take steps to make sure their roofs are reinforced, their windows and doors are secure and their buildings have a fire-safe zone around them, he said.

Nailing plywood over windows doesn't provide much protection, Malik said. Corrugated metal or Lexan coverings with permanent anchoring systems are worth the investment, he said.

"There are techniques that are available to affordably and meaningfully reduce risk for natural hazards," Malik said. "People can take proactive and incremental steps; they don't have to eat the whole elephant at one time."

It's for people like the Wood family of Oklahoma that Malik wants buildings to be stronger.

"Yes, we're concerned about preserving life, but once somebody is evacuated, we want them to have something to come home to," he said.

"We want them to be able to return and not have lost all their memories and all those irreplaceable things that insurance just can't give you a check for and bring back -- your wedding dress, your photo albums, the mark on the door that showed how tall Susie or Billy was at age 10."
