André Villas-Boas is a master in football management. Those of us who have followed his career closely understand how important he is in this area and how much more he will contribute in future. The recent victory of his Zenit Saint Petersburg is a very good example of his qualities.
For Pakistan it has been a long slow descent into hell. The brutal, mindless mass murder of 133 children at a school in Peshawar on 16 December confirms that we have arrived. Much has been written and said about the depravity and inhumanity of the attackers. But no net of words can capture just how far these people have fallen from the human norm
The US President Obama is of course no exception to the other politicians who are elected making a lot of promises but do very little to accomplish them when reality sets in. He carried out a campaign to make Americans believe he will make a change and named his campaign "hope and change". This made many people hopeful
This year's Ebola Virus Disease outbreak is the worst in history. The latest figures indicate 19,031 people infected and 7,373 deaths, a mortality rate of some 39 per cent, prompting the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon to state that while much remains to be done, the UNO will work towards total eradication of the disease.
Communities of microbes, sustainable ecosystems deep below the Earth's crust? Not probably, but certainly and not only at one site, according to an article printed in the magazine Nature on December 17. Will the research also help scientists discover life beneath the crust of Mars?
On December 19, the Official Journal of the European Union published a message about the introduction of new sanctions against the Crimea. The Crimea has never produced any goods that could be competitive enough to be exported to the West. Tourism has always been the main source of income for the peninsula
Today, Russia faces a full frontal general attack. An attack by the TE aiming at the subordination of Russia to the New World Order (NWO) of neoliberal globalization. This is indicated by the concerted attack at the economic, as well as the political, military and propaganda fronts, and confirmed also by President Putin's recent major interview
Obama recently signed a bill to give $350 million to Kiev to kill civilians in SE Ukraine. Fortunately, Crimea is safe from the war Kiev,USA wanted to bring to her. The Four Horsemen will not visit Crimea like it has Donetsk or Lugansk. Crimea recognized the evil from the West and will not kowtow to the puppet government in Kiev
Elena Bondarenko published an open letter to the public. It's a voice nowhere to be heard in the Western press. Although it has been written a few months ago, it is still important today and will remain on the pages of history as a testimony to the situation of lawlessness perpetrated by those in the highest ranks of power in Ukraine:
The Siren's Song, irresistibly luring the sailors to their fate, to be dashed to death on the rocks. The intravenous heroin user prostitute dying for a fix promising the Earth and the Moon. The USA's foreign policy, with a carrot in one hand and a stick in the other. Cuba's recently discovered oil reserves, putting the country on a par with the USA
Brutal and bloody provocations are a tool of choice of USA's politics. US intelligence greyhounds have taken a hand in white powder from Iraq, in September 11 attacks and torture. Hitler's reason for war - a casus belli - was the only one Gleiwitz. The American elite has dozens of such Gleiwitzes. The worst of them was the 9/11 attacks
Europe's approach to the gas relations with Russia has been getting more stringent; Russia's Gazprom has been changing its attitude to investment in Europe too. The point of no return has not been passed yet, but the Y-track is clearly visible already. The decision to stop South Stream marks the beginning of the end of Gazprom's work in Europe
I will not write or speak his name because that is what he wanted. He is not worthy to be remembered by name or deed; yet another known to authorities monster, an Adrian Bayley waiting to happen. These deeply premeditated religiously/sexually motivated, related crimes shouldn't happen in a sane political/justice system which ours clearly isn't.
