Any protests on the Continent this month?
DOGS WANT TO REPLACE MEN !!!!
Just imagine a dog driver in NY city.
A New Zealand charity has been teaching dogs at a humane shelter how to drive a car in order to showcase their skills, intelligence and obedience for potential owners. The three canine student drivers are 18-month-old giant schnauzer Monty, whippet-cross Ginny, and 10-month-old bearded collie Porter.
For training lessons, a specially adapted simulator was built for the dogs, comprising a car seat with a seat belt, a steering wheel and a manual gear shift.
Initially, the animals were trained on the simulator. They were taught how to shift gears, apply the brakes and steer.
The driving sessions were supervised by a trainer
First, the dogs learned to perform various manipulation tasks, moving objects with their front paws.
After learning the skills on simulators, the animals began driving the real thing.
The dogs will be showcased in a television program to be shown on New Zealand TV next week.
The freed children were working in tiny rooms making Christmas decorations to be sold afterwards somewhere in the West. “Malnourished and underfed, many had injuries as a result of using glass to make trinkets and because of violent assaults by their gangmasters,” Brown continues.
The raid was carried out by Global March Against Child Labor, “a worldwide network of trade unions, teachers' and civil society organizations that work together towards the goals of eliminating and preventing all forms of child labor”, as described on their website.
“The sheer scale of child labor is not widely recognized. Around half of all child laborers, 115 million children in total, are engaged in hazardous employment,” Brown’s review titled “The Child Labor & Educational Disadvantage – Breaking the Link, Building Opportunity” and posted on the official site of his office, reveals.
“Getting children out of work and into school could provide an impetus to reduce poverty and the develop the skills needed to boost growth, generate jobs and create more inclusive societies,” the UN Envoy explains.
Child labor takes many forms. Family farm work and caring for siblings are the most common forms. “In Mali, children as young as six are involved in digging shafts for artisanal gold mining, working in tunnels, hauling rock, and using toxic chemicals to separate gold and ore.”
In an effort to eradicate child labor in India and as a step to the ultimate goal of getting all primary school age children out of work and into school by 2015, activists and organizations are calling on the Indian government to pass legislature that would abolish all forms of child labor for those up to 14 years of age and ensure all children can go to school.
If passed, the legislature would amend the Child Labour Act of 1986, allowing children below 14 to be involved in “non-hazardous” work, so that anyone employing a child of the mentioned age in any kind of work would face a maximum three-year jail term and 50,000-rupee fine.

Some part of that dreck has to do with distractions from State in the late Hillary Clinton period. I'm starting to suspect failures about to come to light that go well beyond the Libyan fiasco. Susan Rice's withdrawal is pregnant with implications. Think there are several critical Mideast f-ups about to surface & they've effectively admitted failure across the breadth of Eurasia.
Consider this, too. Glen Ford tells it like it is: http://blackagendareport...san-rices-black-boosters
The US government should take care of his own citizens because the USA has a lot of mentally ill persons. Life in the USA makes them crazy. Hospitals are very expensive for them.
Other people in the world can solve their problems themselves.
According to police, the shooter was 24-year-old Ryan Lanza. Among those killed was his mother, who worked at the school. Before leaving home Lanza shot his Father, as well.
The shooter himself was gunned down by the police arriving on the scene.
Reports say the attacker was armed with two handguns.
All schools and daycare centers of the city are closed.

Gunman killed in Connecticut shooting - official
The suspected gunman in Friday's shooting at a Connecticut elementary school is dead on the scene, a source with knowledge of the investigation told.
The source also said police have recovered two weapons from the suspect, a Glock and a Sig Sauer. It's unclear if police killed the suspect, the source said.
School shooting in Connecticut, 1 child reportedly dead
One child is reported dead after a gunman opened fire at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school Friday morning.
The Hartford Courant confirmed just after 11 a.m. that one student has been killed following an incident that began earlier in the morning, citing reports from authorities on the scene.
Moments earlier, authorities confirmed that a suspected gunman was also dead while at least three others were transported to a nearby hospital.
Police are considering the possibility of second shooter and are now searching for a purple automobile that was seen heading out of the city.
Shots were fired at around 9:40 a.m. this morning inside the main office at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where normally around 600 students in grades kindergarten through four attend class.
The school has since been flanked by dozens of #mce_temp_url#state troopers, who are assisting local officers dispatched to the scene.
All public and private schools in Newtown, CT have been placed on lockdown following orders from the superintendent, and the police are on the scene now attempting to determine the extent of the incident.
The Newton Bee is reporting multiple injuries, and a hospital in nearby Danbury, CT says they have received three patients from the school.

Note that a Glock and a Sig Sauer are pretty good weapons for a 20-year old living with his mom. And how is it that we suddenly have a school shooter who actually knows how to shoot?
American spree killers, you notice, tend NOT to be taken alive. No Breiviks around to tell their stories. Maj Hasan is an exception maybe because what gets out is under military control.
Update: Per CBS News the shooter is NOT Ryan Lanza but his younger brother, 20-year-old Adam Lanza.
27 people, including 18 children, were killed when a gunman burst into an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. At least three people were wounded in the incident.
Note that a Glock and a Sig Sauer are pretty good weapons for a 24-year old living with his folks. And how is it that we suddenly have a school shooter who actually knows how to shoot?
Yes this person is a good shooter for a young age but his behaviour is not normal. I don't think that the new law for marijauana will help the US young people. I think this law is going to destroy them and make them crazy.
Environmental factors play a role in the development of schizophrenia.
Environmental factors associated with the development of schizophrenia include the living environment, drug use and prenatal stressors. Parenting style seems to have no major effect, although people with supportive parents do better than those with critical or hostile parents.Living in an urban environment during childhood or as an adult has consistently been found to increase the risk of schizophrenia by a factor of two,even after taking into account drug use, ethnic group, and size of social group. Other factors that play an important role include social isolation and immigration related to social adversity, racial discrimination, family dysfunction, unemployment, and poor housing conditions.
Amphetamine, cocaine, and to a lesser extent alcohol, can result in psychosis that presents very similarly to schizophrenia. Although not generally believed to be a cause of the illness, people with schizophrenia use nicotine at much greater rates than the general population. About half of those with schizophrenia use drugs or alcohol excessively.Evidence supports a link between earlier onset of psychotic illness and cannabis use; alcohol use is not associated with an earlier onset of psychosis. Other drugs may be used only as coping mechanisms by individuals who have schizophrenia to deal with depression, anxiety, boredom, and loneliness. There is evidence that alcohol abuse via akindling mechanism can occasionally cause the development of a chronic substance induced psychotic disorder, i.e. schizophrenia. A small number of people withdrawing from benzodiazepines experience a severe protracted withdrawal syndrome which can resemble schizophrenia and be misdiagnosed as such. The more often cannabis is abused, the more likely a person is to develop a psychotic illness, with frequent use being correlated with twice the risk of psychosis and schizophrenia.Whether cannabis use is a contributory cause of schizophrenia, rather than a behavior that does not actually cause the disease, remains controversial.
