Yesterday in Nice, France at least 77 people were killed and over 100 injured when a gunman drove an 18-wheeler through a Bastille Day celebration. But that wasn’t enough, then the terrorist started shooting, in what’s now being called a “truck attack.” No, seriously. Check this out:
Got that media? The truck didn’t attack people. Just like jets didn’t attack the Twin Towers on September 11. People are responsible for these horrific events. PEOPLE. Not objects.
I never heard Willem Arondeus before. I came across this and realized it was something that people should know about. Apparently this man’s story only came to the surface 20 years ago. It was hidden because he was gay but the man was something special. Here is a chance to learn about him. Someone should actually make a movie about this wartime hero. Read on….
Antivirus maker Avast buys rival AVG for $1.3 billion. Security vendor Avast is acquiring fellow antivirus maker AVG, best known for its free consumer products, in a cash deal valued at $1.3 billion.
In addition to scale, Avast is looking to broaden its portfolio to look at areas such as IoT, as well as increasing “geographical breadth,” the company said in a statement.
While the two companies are both headquartered in the Czech Republic and have offices worldwide, AVG has locations in the UK, Canada, Israel, Australia and Brazil where Avast does not have physical presence.
According to Avast, the combined user base will include more than 400 million endpoints, of which 160 million are mobile.
The transaction is priced at $25 per share. Avast said in its statement that the offer represents a 33 per cent premium over the July 6 closing price of AVG.
The transaction is expected to close between September 15, and October 15, 2016, pending regulatory review.
For a free software provider they sure must be making looks of scratch…I wonder how.
Dear neighbours, please take some advice from a true friend: stop ignoring the root causes of your problems. Inequality, poverty, the NRA and gun culture, an outrageously unfair justice system and completely sick prison system, unequal education system, systemic racism… it all leads to suffering. Prayer without action is nothing. DO SOMETHING!
Cops won’t call attack on teens outside mosque a hate crime, see why below.
Two Muslim teenagers were beaten outside a New York City mosque by an attacker who shouted slurs at them, a rights group said on Monday, calling for police to investigate the incident as a bias crime.
The attack early on Sunday was at least the third involving Muslims in the United States over the weekend. A law enforcement source said investigators had ruled out the incident as a bias crime. Keep reading!
Unfortunately there will be more of these type of incidences in North America as time goes on. Whole most Muslims will adapt there will be thousands that will try to use intimating tactics to try to alter our laws for their benefit. Hopefully in time this will change but not if news organizations and governments try to hide the problems.
Here is the article to read by Leo Hohmann from WND tv.
A mob of up to 30 young Somali men paraded through one of Minneapolis’ more upscale neighborhoods last week, yelling disparaging comments and threats against homeowners.
A female resident of the neighborhood, obviously shaken in a TV interview, related how she was screamed at by a Somali man who threatened to kidnap and rape her. Keep reading!
We owe it to Muslims to find out the realities of their religion by engaging with Islam on its own terms, not ours.
This an excellent thought provoking article that you should read. It was written by Tom Gilson is a senior editor for The Stream and the author of “Critical Conversations: A Christian Parents’ Guide to Discussing Homosexuality With Teens” .
I’m starting to wonder how any Muslim can stand the way Islam is treated in America. I know I can’t put myself in anyone else’s shoes, but it seems to me the constant, patronizing dismissal of their religion must be maddening. I’m talking about the almost universal unwillingness among liberals in the media to let Islam be Islam, but to make it as much as possible a Western liberal way of life instead.
After 9/11, President George W. Bush called Islam a religion of peace. President Obama refuses to use the words “Islamic” and “terrorism” in the same sentence. The New York Times and Huffington Post said Christianity should take the blame for the Orlando shooting. Keep reading, there’s more to learn
…AH THE GOOD OL’ DAYS WHEN IT WAS A GOOD THING TO WANT TO BE A SOLDIER AND SHOOT THAT TOY GUN!
Remember those days kids (yah you old kids…not you young politically correct kids)?
Lengthy, 1964 commercial for one of the most memorable — and the best-selling boys’ toy of that year — of all toy guns, the Johnny Seven OMA (One Man Army) by Deluxe Reading under its Topper Toys line. We survived…yes we did!
It doesn’t go mouldy at midnight folks. Use your nose. There are somethings that shouldn’t be questioned (like raw sushi) but other things are fine. I’ve drunk milk a month past its “best before” date and it was fine and I’m fine.
Everyone have really bought into this stupidity. I always use product past their due ‘use by date’. I have also thrown stuff out because it went bad way before the use date. Intelligent people use their noses. Use your brain and what little intelligence you still have left for God’s sake. READ THIS ARTICLE.
According to the lawsuit, airport security threw the 19-year-old to the ground after she refused to go back through a metal detector.
This is a real unfortunate story. TSA have jobs to do but they still have to be human beings. Unfortunately, like to many so called police officers they seem to get off on the power kick. When employees do this type of atrocity they should be fired and have assault charges pressed against them. If you can’t use rational thought then this job is not for you. Many are calling for their incarceration. This lawsuit could lead to it, hopefully. Read on to see what happened. Keep reading!
Help refugees if needed but once the country is safe then they should be sent back. This only make sense. If they want to proper immigrate then they should apply like anyone else.
Norway’s Immigration and Integration Minister Sylvi Listhaug, says that UDI has assessed the security situation in Afghanistan, so that far more than before are rejected and can be sent back. Keep reading!
