Let the light pierce through the darkness Close all old accounts, turn a new leaf Re-learn that old lesson of friendship Kill nor be killed, settle for lessening Amidst us of this fossilized hatred


Perhaps that time has not come yet when our, Gods would listen to the beats in our hearts, peace and happiness spread their glow, perhaps we would have to force Mother Time?.

Turkey blocks Wikipedia, alleging smear campaign

Turkey blocks Wikipedia, alleging smear campaign

This article mentions the Wikimedia Foundation, one of its projects, or people related to it. Wikinews is a project of the Wikimedia Foundation.

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Saturday morning, at 8:00 a.m. local time (0500 UTC), residents of Turkey who tried to view Wikipedia in any language received only a “connection timed out” screen. According to watchdog group Turkey Blocks, this was not a technical issue but rather the Turkish government barring access to the crowdsourced encyclopedia under a law stipulating it can block websites that contain obscenities or threats to national security.

Just hours later, roughly 3900 officials, scholars, clerks, prison guards, and other employees suspected of being anti-government were fired.

The Turkish government has allegedly previously blocked international websites such as Facebook and Twitter, often after militant attacks or other unpopular events, but has blamed the “outages” on overload from users seeking information. The government did not immediately claim credit for blocking access to Wikipedia, as such, but the Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Ministry said access will be restored if Wikipedia removes some content claiming the Turkish government is working with militant groups and issued a statement to the state-run Andalou news agency: “Instead of coordinating against terrorism, [Wikipedia] has become part of an information source which is running a smear campaign against Turkey in the international arena.”

Wikimedia Foundation spokesperson Juliet Barbara told NPR, “We are committed to ensuring that Wikipedia remains available to the millions of people who rely on it in Turkey. To that end, we are actively working with outside counsel to seek judicial review of the decision affecting access to Wikipedia. We hope the issue can be resolved promptly.”

The government did publicly announce the firings, stating that everyone dismissed was suspected of associating with “terrorist organisations and structures presenting a threat to national security” and it has connected recent similar actions to the failed coup in the country last year.

This is the second political purge to take place since Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an was granted considerable additional powers after the April 16 constitutional referendum.

The Turkish government also banned televised dating shows, stating “such programmes in which people are introduced to find a friend[…] cannot be permitted.”

Adding The Bakugan Mobile Assault To The Battle}

Adding the Bakugan Mobile Assault To the Battle



An exciting addition to the collections of Bakugan lovers and brawlers in its third season is the Bakugan Mobile Assault. These are a generally considered battle gears, only they are a unique and different kind of battle gears. They are also considered as equivalents to the Bakugan Trap and the other normal Bakugan Battle Gear as support devices to the Bakugan when in battle. There’s more to them than just being a different kind of support system for the Bakugan however.

Let’s tackle first the difference between the Bakugan Mobile Assault and the usual battle gears. Bakugan Battle Gears came out with the third season Bakugan, the Gundalian Invaders Bakugan. They were created to serve as weaponries that were carried by the Bakugan. Reality-wise, we put the battle gears on the back of the opened forms of the Bakugan. The Mobile Assault, on the other hand, was meant to be ridden, not carried. They served as vehicles that not only carry the Bakugan but also provide more power and brawling support.

With this distinction, we can assume that unlike the normal battle gears, the Bakugan Mobile Assault is compatible to any Bakugan. Bakugan Battle Gears can normally only be used on specific Bakugan that have holds on their backs. The Mobile Assault vehicles, however, can be used by any Bakugan, whether or not they have holds on them or not.

Another difference between the battle gears and the Mobile Assault is the Attributes they use. The Bakugan Battle Gears have their own Attributes — gold, silver, and copper. It had been like this ever since the first of them were released. The Bakugan Mobile Assault, however, followed the usual six Attributes — pyrus, darkus, haos, aquos, ventus, and subterra. This means that the mobile assault vehicle used should match the Bakugan you are using when in battle.

Differences aside, we use the mobile assault vehicles the same way we use battle gears when brawling. The Bakugan Mobile Assault also comes with a Reference Card with its abilities and on which kinds of Gate cards they can be used in. Remember that in adding firepower to a Bakugan when brawling, we are only allowed to add two support gear — either 2 Traps, 2 Battle Gears, or 2 BMAs, or a Trap/BMA, Battle Gear/BMA, or Trap/Battle Gear combo.

When playing with the Bakugan Mobile Assault, we put the Bakugan on the vehicle (with the same Attribute) and then roll it onto the metal Gate Card. The Bakugan will increase its power level by the Mobile Assault’s G-power, but this is so only when the Mobile Assault is on a Gate card that is included on the types of Gates listed on the Reference Card. There are three Gates — gold, silver, and copper — and there are usually two listed on the Reference Cards. If it is used on a Gate card that is not listed on the Reference Card, the Mobile Assault will be destroyed, or removed from the game. When the Mobile Assault is removed, the Bakugan will be left on the Gate card and will continue to battle without the support of the vehicle.

Vestas occupation continues; left-wing political parties voice support"">

Vestas occupation continues; left-wing political parties voice support

Thursday, July 23, 2009

Morale is “fine” inside the Vestas plant in Newport, Isle of Wight, England, as an industrial occupation of the wind turbine factory finished entered its fourth night, says one of the occupiers.

“Mark,” who prefers not to give his last name for fear of management reprisals, spoke to Wikinews and gave an update on the situation inside the plant, where 30 of the 525 workers whose jobs are slated to be lost at the end of July occupied management offices on Monday evening and issued a call for the British government to nationalise the plant.

A double fence now rings the plant, surrounded by police in riot gear. Five people have been arrested for attempting to enter the plant grounds. According to Mark, while police are now letting food onto the plant grounds, Vestas’ private security have been halting it at the gate; food for the occupiers is now being provided by Vestas management after the occupiers accused Vestas in the press of violating the Human Rights Act; commenting on the quality of the food, Mark said “it’s not been that good”. According to the BBC, the content has been mostly sausage rolls, pasties and crisps.

The occupiers were informed yesterday that if they did not leave the plant by 10:30 p.m. on July 22, they would be fired. They have since been served with papers charging them with aggravated trespass and are seeking legal representation; the court papers give them until July 29 to vacate, but according to Mark, the occupiers have no plans to leave: “we’re going to be in here for a while”.

Vestas has given no comment to the press about the occupation.

Political parties in Britain have begun responding to the Vestas situation, with the Green Party adding its support to the occupation following the early declarations of support, previously reported here, by the Socialist Party and Socialist Workers Party. Green Party Leader Dr Caroline Lucas MEP gave her “full support”, and said in an online statement, “We should be seizing the opportunity to create a renewable energy revolution through a favourable policy environment and massive investment in the new technologies that can see us through a transition towards a more environmentally and economically stable economy. The Government can make a genuine start along this road by pledging financial aid to help keep the Isle of Wight’s Vestas plant open for business”. The Greens held a demonstration in London supporting the Vestas workers on July 22. Environmentalist protesters have established a climate camp with dozens of people outside the perimeter of the fence and a mass demonstration is planned for Friday evening in Newport’s St Thomas’s Square.

In parliament, meanwhile, five MPs of the ruling Labour Party have signed a motion protesting the Vestas plant’s closure and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg stated, “This closure exposes the hollow truth of Labour’s climate change strategy”. Labour Party left-wing veteran Tony Benn is expected to appear with RMT general secretary Bob Crow and address a rally at the factory Thursday night. Opposition leader David Cameron of the Conservative Party has not yet commented on the Vestas situation, but Conservative MP Andrew Turner, who represents the Isle of Wight, held a confidential meeting with Vestas management, after which he said that nationalisation was “not on the table”. Earlier in parliament, Turner said that he found Vestas’s lack of negotiations with its employees “totally unacceptable”.

Late on Thursday, Ed Miliband, the Energy and Climate Change Minister, published an editorial in The Guardian, writing:

[W]e have to win a political argument that environmentally and industrially, onshore wind is part of the solution. In the meantime, there must be a strategy for the Isle of Wight to do all we can to help and there is. Not just support for the workers who are losing their jobs, but a strategy to work with Vestas.

Milliband went on to promise £120 million in government investment in offshore wind power production and £60 million in marine manufacturing.

Vestas attributes its pullout from the UK to difficulty in obtaining planning permission for wind farms. The Independent quotes a senior company executive as saying, “We needed a stable long-term market and that was not there in the UK. We have made clear to the Government that we need a market. We do not need money.” Vestas’s income is up 59% in the last quarter, although its stock has dropped 4.4% on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange since the occupation began.

Meanwhile in the United States, Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick cut the ribbon at the opening of a 300-turbine, 800-megawatt capacity wind farm built by Vestas in Holden, Massachusetts. Vestas is a finalist in a multi-million dollar government contract to build a new offshore wind farm to be constructed in Nantucket Sound by 2012.

Weakening Dean makes landfall on Mexican coast"">

Weakening Dean makes landfall on Mexican coast

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

After gaining strength in the western Caribbean last night, Hurricane Dean made landfall as a Category 5 storm on Mexico’s Yucatán coast at about 4:30 a.m. this morning (EDT).

The storm struck just north of Chetumal, the capital of the Mexican state of Quintana Roo. However, hurricane-force winds were felt over 60 miles (~100 km) away from the center of the storm, and tropical storm conditions impacted areas 175 miles (280 km) away.

The Mexican government ordered the deployment of over 4,000 troops, and declared a state of emergency in the state of Campeche. Some areas braced for up to 20 inches (510 mm) of rain.

Dean made landfall as a category 5 storm, before being downgraded hours later to a category 3 storm. Later Tuesday afternoon, Dean was downgraded to a category 2 storm. Currently, the storm maintains category 1 status, with top sustained winds at 85 mph (137 km/h).

The hurricane moved towards modern oil installations of the Yucatan Peninsula, prompting evacuations of offshore oil rigs that produce most of Mexico’s oil and gas.

Forecasters warn the storm could pick up strength as it crosses the Bay of Campeche and turn into an even more destructive hurricane before making a second landfall on Wednesday.

A hurricane warning remains in effect along the Gulf Coast of Mexico from south of Progreso to Tampico.

Forecasters do not believe it presents a threat to the United States.

Dean is being blamed for 13 deaths already.

Help On Setting Up A Home Gym}

Help On Setting Up A Home Gym


Corinne Page

In the organized chaos of people trying to get “buff” I have discovered my haven. The power in this gym is extremely important to me so I really enjoy the time invested here in the fitness center. Every thing I require to teach is in 1 place so having to go anyplace else it not necessary. Xsport Fitness’ motto “we’re all about you” could not be any much more true.

Notes: Both have won Championships (Riley as a coach, Johnson as a participant) and know what it requires to attain that success. The Mavs have totally embraced and acknowledged Johnson, which was tougher than expected contemplating that two years in the past he was a teammate and now he’s the leading guy on the bench. But he’s been able to have the Mavs clicking on all cylinders, including the defensive aspect, a job that had been long regarded as impossible by most NBA specialists around the nation. There is no dissention in that towel towel Locker

as he’s been in a position to similarly stability the taking part in minutes.

LA Fitness does have a few restrictions. Though very clean, I have noticed that some of the cleaning supplies do have a tendency to dwindle at night. The gym also does not offer a towel towel Locker for associates, so make sure to bring 1 along. Some might also think about the membership a little bit pricy (roughly $35 a thirty day period), though other gyms in my area charge upwards of $50. Above all, I have been quite pleased overall with the solutions.

New England is 1 of these groups that usually picks somebody other than the one you might think. Understanding Belichick, there is a great opportunity this pick could get dealt. But I’m not in the company of projecting trades, so with this choose I have them solidifying their need along the offensive line with the second very best tackle prospect in the draft in Tyron Smith.

If the size of the contract doesn’t fit you, say so. Why signal a 3 year contract if you only want 6 months? If the gym is unwilling to budge, go somewhere else. If you don’t, then you’ve already compromised and will be kicking yourself as quickly as you get house. Remember: There’s a gym out there for everybody.

Writing a weekly menu strategy is not hard to do and it truly assists you get organized. 1 simple way to do this is to sit down with your recipe publications as soon as a 7 days and write towel locker up what you will be eating that week.If 3 meals a working day is too difficult, then just stick to dinners.

Education. Even though training is definitely no substitute for encounter, in a well being occupation such as personal coaching, you gained’t get far without the knowledge to get your job carried out properly. This can consist of your fundamental certification, your Continuing Education Credits, and any relevant school or trade college classes you consider during your career.

Studies have shown , people are much less likely to workout if they have to travel as well far out of their way. As well much becoming instead subjective for some, how far are you prepared to journey to have access to the perfect gym. I’ve compiled a checklist of gyms that might have definite appeal, primarily based on your specific requirements.

Re-decorate your rest room easily and cheaply. The easiest way to spruce up your bathroom is by changing the towels, tub mat and shower curtain. This will give an instant lift to the rest room. Vegetation are a fantastic way to liven up a rest room, but make sure to select ones that will tolerate higher humidity and reduced light requirements.

The center court at the Greene is quickly turning into a hot place for summer playgroups. The main attraction is the spray floor. Many parents come armed with swim suits and towels for eager younger kids searching for a watery relief from the scorching Ohio summers. Even if parents neglect these essentials, the Greene is there to provide complementary towel towel Locker and SPF 30 sunscreen.

Research what you are heading to promote. Hand embroidered dish towels are not going to sell as well to men as they will to ladies, but intricately tooled leather sheathes for searching knives would be much more most likely to promote to men. Identifying your possible clients will assist you decide on a location to make use of for promoting your handmade crafts.

Homeowners may require

appliance repair for every

space in their house. People might take their appliances for granted till some thing goes wrong. They might just get up in the morning anticipating everything to function and not even really value all the devices and devices that are working for them. Luckily, there are experienced restore staff to repair what’s broken. These techs may come to the house or the appliances might be introduced to their store, based on what it is. Have you observed all your difficult working equipment and gadgets recently?

This tip might appear a little unorthodox, but let me clarify. A tub towel can consider up to or about a sq. foot of space in a bag. That is the equivalent of almost two bottles of wine, an whole hygene package, a pair of footwear, or even the area for a heat jacket (in the situation that you are heading someplace that you require a jacket). In my viewpoint, that space can be much better used.

Law will delay University of Minnesota strike"">

Law will delay University of Minnesota strike

Tuesday, August 28, 2007

A law was passed that will prevent clerical, technical and health care workers from striking when the University of Minnesota students return to classes on Tuesday, however, the new law makes no guarantee about workers striking on Wednesday.

According to Jan Johnson, with the Minnesota Bureau of Mediation Services, both sides do wish to avoid a strike if at all possible.

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees have filed for a ten-day notice to strike, however, the ten-day notice to strike law requires that the tenth day of the cooling-off period fall on a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or a holiday, thus, Labor Day Monday is out of reason. A strike, therefore, would not be possible until at least Wednesday, the second day of classes.
