Someone Started A Petition to Change the US National Anthem to War Pigs by Black Sabbath. March 15, 2016 | Claire Bernish Op-ed by Claire BernishMarch 15, 2016 (ANTIMEDIA) As U.S. election politics plummet rapidly toward a nadir in vanishing ethics, fear-mongering, and tabloid-esque rhetoric, it shouldn’t escape headlines that no major party candidate harbors intentions to disentangle the country from America’s growing number of military operations worldwide.

Of course, the United States managed to elect Barack Obama, whose expansive bellicose policies — in conjunction with having been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize — embody a quintessential irony seemingly only possible in America. Obama isn’t the only politician who has managed to tout strict gun control for U.S. citizens while espousing the killing of terror suspects by drone — a program that inevitably causes the murder of anyone who happens to be standing nearby when a bomb is unleashed.

Not one of the leading presidential candidates even hinted at a desire to eradicate that contentious practice. Comedian Dane Cook and Winnipeg crowd pull off huge mannequin challenge - Manitoba.

It should be noted that NT Official is not "affiliated with, endorsed, associated with or sponsored by any government or official NT tourism organizations or their associated brands, companies or subsidiaries" but "just some lovers of the top end, spreading love" for their "favorite territory", according to a statement posted on their Facebook page.

New Theory Suggests Universe Could Ctrl-Alt-Delete Itself

This relates to the Higgs Field theory, also referred to as Higgs Boson, which is thought to permeate the entire universe. The question is whether this space is actually metastable, not stable or it's just pretending to be. This is known as a false vacuum and is where we could find that spark which could swallow the whole universe — a destructive event called "vacuum decay.

" "Based on what we know about the Higgs Boson today, we cannot accurately tell whether our vacuum is stable (permanent) or metastable (temporary, albeit long-lived). Described as "the ultimate ecological catastrophe: if it were to occur, in layman's terms it would basically mean we could be here one second and then completely wiped out the next — and we wouldn't even see it coming.

The Canadian Press Published Tuesday, September 6, 2016 11:31AM EDT Last Updated Tuesday, September 6, 2016 1:24PM EDT TORONTO -- Prosecutors say a woman who killed her teenage stepdaughter more than two decades ago should spend 18 to 22 years in prison before having a chance at parole. In its sentencing arguments, the Crown says Elaine Biddersingh committed an egregious breach of trust in subjecting her 17-year-old stepdaughter to "prolonged slow suffering" and was an equal partner in her death. Biddersingh was convicted in June of second-degree murder in the death of Melonie Biddersingh, whose frail body was found in a burning suitcase in an industrial parking lot north of Toronto in 1994.

The teen's body went unidentified for years until 2011, when her stepmother told an Ontario pastor the girl had "died like a dog" after being confined and denied food and medication. The conviction carries an automatic sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole for at least 10 years. Love ties Nanaimo couple together for 75 years - Nanaimo News Bulletin.
