» Texas Town Fires Entire Police Department, Crime Drops By 61% Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind! A Texas town has proven that there is a solution to out of control cops after it replaced the entire police department with private security officers and saw a remarkable drop in crime by 61%. Sharpstown, located southwest of Houston, decided in 2012 that regular public policing was proving wholly ineffective, and opted not to renew a contract with the constable’s office. Instead the town’s civic leaders hired private security agents with the company SEAL Security Solutions, and devised a more effective policing strategy. “Since we’ve been in there, an independent crime study that they’ve had done [indicates] we’ve reduced the crime by 61%” in just 20 months, James Alexander, Director of Operations for SEAL told reporters with guns.com. That is an estimated slashing of criminal activity of almost two thirds in just over a year and a half. Alexander believes that the reason for such a dramatic drop has come with more sensible policing in areas that need it the most.

BC will charge water bottling corporations like Nestlé a measly $2.25 per million litres of water. What? British Columbia, a Canadian province, will finally start charging companies like Nestlé for taking its groundwater and bottling it to sell at a profit. The problem is it will only be $2.25 per million . Under this new pricing structure Nestlé and corporations like it will be able to buy up Canada's water for next to nothing. When over one hundred thousand people objected to Nestlé taking 285 million of Canada's water for free and selling it around the world, this wasn't the fix they had in mind. At a time when water is in short supply globally, it is outrageous that Nestlé can draw limitless amounts of Canada's natural resources to sell for a huge profit. Nestlé's chairman says that "extremist" NGOs are responsible for the idea that water is a human right, and that water should have a market price -- apparently he thinks that the “market price" for him is $2.25.
Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" is a 2003 special issue of American magazine Rolling Stone, and a related book published in 2005. The lists presented were compiled based on votes from selected rock musicians, critics, and industry figures, and predominantly feature American and British music from the 1960s and the 1970s. From 2007 onwards, the magazine published similarly titled lists in other countries around the world. In 2012, Rolling Stone published a revised edition of the list drawing on the original and a later survey of albums in the 2000s. It was made available in "bookazine" format on newsstands in the US from April 27 to July 25. The new list contained 38 albums not present in the previous one, 16 of them released after 2003.
BBC Foreknowledge of 9/11 Collapse of WTC Building Seven: British Man Won Law Suit against BBC for 9/11 Cover Up By EV Horsham, UK, 2013 – Tony Rooke, in an act of civil disobedience, refused to pay the mandatory £130 TV license fee claiming it violates Section 15 of the Terrorism Act. Rooke’s accusation was aimed at the BBC who reported the collapse of WTC 7 over 20 minutes before it actually fell, and the judge accepted Rooke’s argument. While it was not a public inquiry into 9/11, the recognition of the BBC’s actions on September 11th are considered a small victory, one that was never reported in the US. “Today was an historic day for the 9/11 truth movement,” Peter Drew of AE911Truth UK told Digital Journal, “with over 100 members of the public attending, including numerous journalists from around the UK as well as from across other parts of Europe.”

17-11-70 17-11-70 (US title 11-17-70) is the first live album by British singer-songwriter Elton John, released in 1971. Background The recording was taken from a live radio broadcast on 17 November 1970, hence the album's title. The recording was originally popular among bootleggers which, according to Gus Dudgeon, eventually prompted the record label to release it as an album. It has been said that the release by an eastern bootlegger of the whole 60-minute aircast rather than the 48 minutes selected by Dick James Music significantly cut into the US sales of the live album. However, the entire concert was an 80-minute affair, and double-LPs containing the entire concert were more common than those containing only 60 minutes. Another contributing factor to the original album's soft sales could have been the glut of Elton John product on the market at the time.
