Anybody who believes Ukrainian news is a moron. Anybody who believes Russian news is a moron. Anybody who believes European or American news is a double moron. All of them lie through their teeth and none of it makes any freaking sense. That’s where I stand.
The Daily Post asks the question:
Is there a place in the world you never want to visit? Where, and why not?
CYPRUS has drawn up plans to take in up to 200,000 refugees from the fighting in Syria, where the crackdown by government troops against opposition forces has intensified in recent weeks.
While the figures are a worst-case scenario, the number is equivalent to a quarter of the island’s population, a huge burden at a time of economic upheaval.
Here is a collection of all World Press Photo winning photographs from 1955 to 2011. Overall, I think they very clearly show the sad truth – humans are the worst enemies of humans…
Warco is a first-person game where players shoot footage instead of a gun. A work in progress at Brisbane-based studio Defiant Development, the game is a collaboration of sorts; Defiant is working with both a journalist and a filmmaker to create a game that puts you in the role of a journalist embedded in a warzone.
The game is still in production and it is not clear whether it will ever come out. There is a trailer which gives a feel to how it might be.
Slashdot thread already picked up the argument of whether you will be able to choose between Canon and Nikon equipment for the missions in the game.
Comparison between Cyprus and Somalia, children and adults is nothing more but a coincidence in my news stream. Consider the two articles that appeared not next to each other, but near enough for me to group them here.
First, in incident in Cyprus, as reported by the Cyprus Mail.
AN ANNUAL festival in Anogyra village held to celebrate the honey and sesame sweet, pastelli, ended on a sour note on Saturday after three people were slightly injured in a fight over balloons.
Chairs and bottles were thrown in the fight between two families that resulted in four arrests and three people getting slightly injured.
Second, a little competition in Somalia, as reported by the Guardian.
An Islamist-backed radio station in Somalia has awarded assault rifles and hand grenades to the winners of a children’s Qur’an recital competition.
Andalus radio, which is run by al-Shabaab militia, said on Monday that the first prize was an AK-47 and £450. The runner-up received an AK-47 and £320, while the child who came third received two F1 hand grenades and £250. The three children also received religious books.
There goes my hope for the World Peace.
