Global Terrorism Database The updated GTD WebGL Globe is an interactive geographic visualization, currently in beta, that plots the location and frequency of yearly terrorist attacks worldwide from 1970-2014. It was developed by START using the WebGL Globe open platform created by the Google Data Arts Team. Automated geocoding from the OpenCage Geocoder supplements the geocoding available in the public dataset. Periscopic, a data visualization firm that promotes information transparency and public awareness, has produced an innovative, interactive tool that allows users to explore the impact and dynamics of GTD perpetrator groups. US attack on Iran spells World War III' 'US attack on Iran spells World War III' Sat Nov 5, 2011 11:57PM The Obama Administration's strategy for re-election is to start wars, but if the US were to “attack Iran,” it would “end up in a World War III,” a political analyst has told Press TV. Edward Spannaus, editor of the weekly US-based news magazine Executive Intelligence Review (EIR), told our channel from Washington on Saturday that “his [US President Barack Obama's] puppet masters, the people who pull his strings, do want war.” “Iran of course is at the top of the list right now,” he noted and said, “It may start with an attack on Iran, but it would end up in a general world war.” "This is how dangerous the situation is right now.

OE romance: Kiwi beaten, starved - World Beaten with a slave whip, starved and scared, Kiwi Sharon Churchill believes she would still be a hostage of her Egyptian husband if it wasn't for a team of New Zealand diplomats who helped her to escape. The 41-year-old from Tirau in Waikato suffered emotional abuse and beatings from her husband of five months - a man she once called the love of her life - and started sleeping with a steel pipe for protection. But on February 14, she escaped, with the help of embassy staff in Cairo, and is now warning other women about the dangers of holiday romances. In letters she has sent to the Prime Minister and other ministers, Ms Churchill credits the diplomats with saving her life by working with Egyptian authorities to get her out of the house and on a flight home. However, her ex-husband denies the claims, saying he never assaulted her and that problems in their relationship were her fault.

Critics Say Obama EPA Moves Made With 2012 In Mind President Obama gestures after a statement in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington Aug. 31.AP While Republican foes and many in the business community accuse President Obama of pushing aggressive environmental agenda, the Obama EPA has actually been holding back on many of its key initiatives. Critics say the go-slow approach at the Environmental Protection Agency is part of a 2012 re-election strategy for the president. In July, the EPA announced that it would postpone, for the fourth time, new ozone standards, with a promise to reconsider them at a later date. Then in August, EPA regulators chose to ignore a promised toughening of carbon monoxide standards, angering many environmentalists. That followed a decision to postpone indefinitely rules that would have punished companies for emissions the agency says are linked to global warming.
There is no compulsion to accept Islam Some friends say that whoever does not enter Islam, that is his choice and he should not be forced to become Muslim, quoting as evidence the verses in which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed, all of them together. So, will you (O Muhammad) then compel mankind, until they become believers” [Yoonus 10:99] “There is no compulsion in religion” [al-Baqarah 2:256] What is your opinion concerning that?. Praise be to Allaah. The scholars explained that these two verses, and other similar verses, have to do with those from whom the jizyah may be taken, such as Jews, Christians and Magians (Zoroastrians). They are not to be forced, rather they are to be given the choice between becoming Muslim or paying the jizyah.
Barack Obama, the carbon president In our globalised world, old-fashioned geography is not supposed to count for much: mountain ranges, deep-water ports, railroad grades – those seem so 19th century. The earth is flat, or so I remember somebody saying. But those nostalgic for an earlier day, take heart. The Obama administration is making its biggest decisions yet on our energy future and those decisions are intimately tied to this continent's geography. Remember those old maps from your high-school textbooks that showed each state and province's prime economic activities? A sheaf of wheat for farm country?
