Two-and-a-half tonnes of marijuana destroyed in Afghan school

Sunday, December 21, 2008

The combined efforts of agents from the Afghan Commandos and Coalition forces have led to the discovery and destruction of two-and-a-half tonnes of marijuana in an abandoned school in the southern Afghan province of Kandahar on Friday.

Kandah?r province or Qandahar (??????,{??????) is one of the largest of the thirty-four provinces of Afghanistan. It is located in southern Afghanistan, between Helamand, Oruzgan and Zabul provinces. Its capital is the city of Kandah?r, also spelled Qandah?r, (?????? or ??????), the second largest city in Afghanistan, with a population of 450,300 (2006 estimate). Kandahar City is located on the Arghandab River. The province has a population of nearly 890,000, with more than 300,000 living in its capital city. The main inhabitants of Kandahar province are the Pashtun people.

An improvised explosive device and an unexploded mortar round, both 100-meters away from the school, also were destroyed.Foot patrol by the combined forces yielded tips which led to the drug discovery. A Commando also discovered a large room filled with marijuana seeds. The marijuana was placed in two-foot-tall (0.6-meter) stacks that filled multiple 12ft-by-12ft rooms. Rust on the furniture suggests the Afghan schoolhouse may not have been used as such for a long period of time. No students or faculty were around at the time of the drug bust.

U.S. Forces Afghanistan spokesperson, Col. Jerry O’Hara said that “using drugs to fund insurgent activity is bad enough; using a school as a drug warehouse is an attack on the future of all Afghanistan.”

Xinhua has reported that “according to a recent U.N. report, Afghanistan produces over 90 percent of the world’s opium as Taliban militants will benefit nearly 500 million U.S. dollars from opium trade in 2008.”

Meanwhile, coalition troops have killed four militants in Zabul Province. They also detained five suspects on Saturday. Adm. Mike Mullen, chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that “the United States would send between 20,000 and 30,000 more forces to Afghanistan by summer.” “Those forces will primarily move into the country’s south, where the insurgency is the most entrenched,” he added.

Feminization, Do You Have Any Excess Masculinity?

By Mark Goodworthy

When you talk about sexuality and gender, society plays a big influence. During the old days, it was accepted that there is only two genders: man and woman. But the modern times is recognizing a third gender: the gays or the homosexuals.

Although the concept is still not accepted in conservative societies, it should still be acknowledged as a fact of life. Today, there are many transgender, transsexuals and transvestites that are wishing that they could become a woman completely, not only in body but also in mind and in heart.

When a man consciously decides to become a female, the process is called feminization. Although very controversial, this process is important to complete the transformation. Physically, a man can easily transform into a female. He could wear cosmetics, grow his hair and have surgery. Surgeries could include breast implants and removal of his male genitalia.

The man could also increase the level of the female hormones in his body to naturally change his physique. There are estrogen-laden pills that could be purchased and taken to change the skin’s texture, reduce facial growth and soften curves.

Even with such changes, the conscious mind is still thinking like a man and the person would still feel that his transformation is incomplete. Through the process of feminization hypnosis, you will be able to acquire the emotional as well as psychological aspect of woman. A qualified hypnosis would make simple suggestions while you are under the influence of hypnosis. Since the subconscious is more receptive to messages and suggestions, you will feel, act and think 100 percent woman in no time at all.

Feminization by hypnosis does not require any pills or diets. It will simply open the part of your consciousness that has been resisting the complete transformation to a woman. You will no longer feel trapped or ashamed because your mind and your personality will no longer experience conflicts.

Hypnotherapy is also known to be effective in treating addiction and phobias. It is not surprising that it could also be effective in feminization. If you are interested in this technique, simply browse the internet for additional information on hypnotherapy.

There are many reputable providers who can give you expert advice and assistance. But do not forget to be cautious when getting hypnotherapy services. Better still, you should ask your friends, colleagues and families for referrals. They might know a reputable hypnotherapy services provider.

Wikinews interviews World Wide Web co-inventor Robert Cailliau

Thursday, August 16, 2007

The name Robert Cailliau may not ring a bell to the general public, but his invention is the reason why you are reading this: Dr. Cailliau together with his colleague Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, making the internet accessible so it could grow from an academic tool to a mass communication medium. Last January Dr. Cailliau retired from CERN, the European particle physics lab where the WWW emerged.

Wikinews offered the engineer a virtual beer from his native country Belgium, and conducted an e-mail interview with him (which started about three weeks ago) about the history and the future of the web and his life and work.

Wikinews: At the start of this interview, we would like to offer you a fresh pint on a terrace, but since this is an e-mail interview, we will limit ourselves to a virtual beer, which you can enjoy here.

Robert Cailliau: Yes, I myself once (at the 2nd international WWW Conference, Chicago) said that there is no such thing as a virtual beer: people will still want to sit together. Anyway, here we go.

Eurovision ’73 winner Anne Marie David discusses her four-decade career and the Contest, past and present

Monday, February 16, 2009

In the 1970s, she was one of the most popular female vocalists in France, and became well-known internationally. Anne Marie David, from Arles in the south of France, parlayed her initial success from playing Mary Magdalene in the French production of Jesus Christ Superstar into taking home the “grand prix” at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973. Her winning song, “Tu te reconnaîtras” (You will recognize yourself), became a Europe-wide hit that spring.

At the height of her popularity, David perfomed world tours, and even lived abroad in Turkey for a time. In 1979, she tried once again to win the Eurovision, and placed a respectable third. Her song “Je suis l’enfant soleil” (I’m a child of the sun) became similarly popular across France and in the Francophone nations.

As time went on, however, her place in the French music scene became less certain. Touring the world had taken a personal toll, and David decided to retire from music completely in 1987. However, with the help of her fan base, she was coaxed out of retirement in 2003 and is returning to a part of her life that she tried to leave, but never left her. Celebrating four decades in the music scene, David is looking forward to adventurous new projects and a newfound zest for life.

Anne Marie David corresponded with Wikinews’ Mike Halterman about her eventful career, her personal anecdotes regarding living abroad, her successes in past Eurovision contests and her grievances with the way the show is produced today. This is the second in a series of interviews with past Eurovision contestants, which will be published sporadically in the lead-up to mid-May’s next contest in Moscow.

Canada tests cow for mad cow disease

Friday, April 14, 2006

Initial tests done on a six-year-old dairy cow in Fraser Valley, a farming community near Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada, are inconclusive for bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or “mad cow disease,” said Canada’s Food Inspection Agency.

Further tests are being conducted at Winnipeg’s National Centre for Foreign Animal Disease and results are expected on Sunday. Officials also say the cow did not enter the human food chain.

“Canada has a suite of internationally recognized safeguards that work together to provide high levels of human and animal health protection,” officials for the agency said in a statement.

If the results are positive, this will be Canada’s fifth case of the disease since 2003.

How To Choose The Best Shop For Auto Repair In Midway

byadmin

Choosing the best shop for auto repair in Midway is going to save you time, money and a ton of headaches. There is nothing worse than having your vehicle off the road. The sooner you get the repairs done the better off you are. Choosing the right shop from the start will keep you from having to play “guess what is wrong with my vehicle today” game.

Reputation Really Counts

One of the best ways to choose a repair place is to ask around. Who are friends and neighbors using? Ask them about their experience. The right shop will be:

* Well established * Have a positive reputation * Have skilled staff members * Focus on customer care

A well-established business becomes well-established by providing quality care for their customers. They have a strong reputation for being able to quickly diagnose the issue and to be able to offer options for repairs. The staff is highly skilled, certified mechanics and the whole shop puts the customer first! The right shop understands that helping you to care for your vehicle not only when it is in need of repairs but when it also needs maintenance is very important to the life of your vehicle. The right preventive maintenance and repairs will keep you on the road and safe!

Locally Owned

When you are making the choice for your auto repairs consider the locally owned shops first. Locally owned shops offer a more personalized experience and typically better pricing on repairs. National chains are corporate entities that often hire personnel that is only skilled in one thing. They are not the best at diagnosing problems and are trained to upsell you services that you do not really need. Locally owned business owners live and work in the same community as you do. They have stronger sense of loyalty to the community which is evident in their customer care. It is a better all-around option. If you need repairs choose one of the locally owned shops with a strong customer service record.
