Russia And China Forge Closer Ties, As EU Explores Sanctions

Via EUobserver:

Russia is rolling out two major projects – a gas pipeline and a Crimea deep water port – with China, as E.U. countries and the U.S. weigh options on economic sanctions.

Russia’s ambassador to the E.U., Vladimir Chizhov, told EUobserver on Wednesday (16 April) that work on the "Power of Siberia" pipeline and the Chinese construction of a 25-meter-deep port in Crimea are proceeding as normal despite the Ukraine crisis.

The Eurasian Economic Union is due to be launched on 1 January 2015 regardless of the situation in Ukraine or any other country not involved at this stage in the integration process.

Negotiations on accession of Armenia are expected to be completed soon and those with Kyrgyzstan are also under way.

Heidi Klum Demands Your Titty Respect

Via WWTDD:

You can’t just want then, cougar cub, you need to say you want them.

Heidi Klum has one rule when it comes to mounting the multitude of young cock she intends to ride because she’s 40 and rich and horny.

You must appreciate the flapjacks.

She will shove them in your face, ring the triangle and show them to the world, and even draw smiley faces on them for her children’s school carnivals.

In all cases, respect the titties or get the fuck out.

I’m not sure how young Frenchy is handling the supplication before his older girlfriend’s drooping yams.

If he’s having an inkling to wonder why a chick with all the cash in the world wouldn’t get a 90210 light lift, he better hide it.

Or the cougar moves on and you get none, son.

Blue UFO Caught On Video In The Netherlands

Via Disclose.tv:

Rijnmond TV News in the Netherlands is reporting on an interesting UFO video captured by a man in the town of Maassluis.

The object appears to be a large lens-shaped blue object and has no apparent means of propulsion.

Maassluis is a few miles south of The Hague, in an area surrounding Rotterdam called the Rijnmond.

It is at the mouth of the Rhine River. The UFO video was captured by Maassluis resident Dick Smits at approximately 3 pm last Friday.

According to Rijnmond TV, the object hung silently in the air for a long time before disappearing in the clouds.

The object has a slightly curved bottom and a domed top.

It makes no sudden movement, which could indicate an inflatable object.

However, it is at an angle and is not in the shape of a blimp.

The universe is full of extraterrestrial life and we are in store for more UFO sightings.

Swedish MP Ordered Chemtrail Probe

Via The Local:

A Swedish MP who launched an official government investigation into the existence of chemtrails tells The Local why he thinks Swedes deserve the truth, even if it may leave some conspiracy theorists unsatisfied.

"I can't speak for other MPs, but I've had many, many calls over the past eight years about chemtrails. And these questions are not so easy to answer", Jan Lindholm, Green Party MP, told The Local.

The queries came from Swedes who were "worried and afraid" about the white trails behind aeroplanes. Many callers were concerned, he said, that the planes were leaving poisonous gases.

Conspiracy theorists suggest that governments are behind the trails, which they claim are a deadly concoction of heavy metals.

"It's an attempt to geo-engineer the planet. We're talking weather control here", one chemtrail enthusiast told The Local on condition of anonymity.

Lindholm, tired of getting the same questions and not knowing how to answer them, took matters into his own hands.

He contacted Sweden's weather agency SMHI, the Swedish Civil Aviation Administration (Luftfartsverket) and the air force.

Unsatisfied with their responses, he requested an official probe from Sweden's Parliamentary Investigative Service (Riksdagens Utredningstjänst, RUT).

"They studied it, perhaps for a few hours, I don't know, and they managed to give me a clear answer. Now, if someone asks me, I can answer", he explained.

"I tell them that as far as I know - and I have seen the work done by serious scientists - chemtrails probably don't exist, and probably can't exist".

While the investigation was completed in late 2012, it was only made public this week, reported Nyheter24 news site.

Lindholm, who described himself as "an old man with an active curiosity", dismissed further claims that the study was a waste of time.

"As an elected person, it is my responsibility to listen. I can't ignore people, I have to try and give them answers", he told The Local.

Lavrov Slams "Unacceptable" Use Of Force In Southeastern Ukraine

Via RIA Novosti:

Moscow believes that the use of force in southeastern Ukraine is unacceptable and condemns preparations for a violent crackdown on protesters in the country, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday.

"We are sure that the use of force to ease the situation in southeastern [Ukraine] is unacceptable", Lavrov told reporters after a meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

"We categorically condemn and demand the cease of so-called initiatives to send security forces and army divisions that are in breach of the norms of Ukrainian and international law to quash protests", the Russian Foreign Minister added.

Lavrov arrived in China for a working visit Tuesday to discuss preparations for President Vladimir Putin's visit to the country scheduled for May, in addition to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

The Russian Foreign Minister thanked China for its unbiased stance on events in Ukraine, adding that the key to solving the crisis lies in constitutional reform for the country.

Moscow has demanded Ukrainian authorities stop initiatives to crackdown on protests in the country's southeastern regions, and now awaits an objective assessment on the situation in the Ukrainian city of Slaviansk from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), Lavrov said.

Lavrov said Kiev's proposal to invite UN peacekeepers to solve the situation in southeastern Ukraine is "over the top", adding that the Kiev authorities are "inventing fables" to justify their "aggressive intentions".

The U.S. Remains The World's Top Military Spender

Via EUobserver:

Russia spends more on arms compared to its GDP than the US and European countries, according to fresh figures released Monday (14 April) by SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute), a military spending research group.

The U.S. remains the world's top military spender in gross terms (€460bn), but its spending decreased by over 7 percent compared to the previous year, mainly because of the withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Also in proportional terms, U.S. military spending represents only 3.8 percent of its GDP, while Russia (€63.4bn) has increased its arms budget to 4.1 percent of GDP in 2013, compared to 3.5 percent in 2004.

Russia’s spending has risen as it continues to implement the State Armaments Plan for 2011–20, under which it plans to spend 20.7 trillion roubles (€403bn) on new and upgraded armaments.

The goal is to replace 70 percent of equipment with "modern" weapons by 2020.

Ukraine, on the brink of a war with the Russian neighbor, has also increased its military spending by 16 percent compared to the previous year.

China, the world's second-largest military spender, has also upped its budget to an estimated €135 billion in 2013, representing two percent of its GDP, according to SIPRI.

There are four European countries in the top 15 of largest military spenders in the world.

France (€44bn), which last year ranked fourth after Russia, has now slipped behind Saudi Arabia, on rank five.

Compared to 2004-2013, France has slashed its military budget by 6.4 percent.

Britain is behind France, with €41 billion in military spending, a decrease by two percent compared to the previous decade.

Germany, ranking seventh in the world (€35.2bn), is the only European country to have increased its military spending compared to 2004-2013, by 3.8 percent.

Italy, by contrast, has slashed its arms spending by 26 percent, ranking 11th in the world with a budget of €23.6 billion in 2013.

Falls of over 10 percent in military spendig since 2008 have also been recorded in Austria, Belgium, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and the UK, as well as all countries in central Europe except Poland and Estonia.

New Form Of Matter: Exotic Hadron With Two Quarks, Two Anti-Quarks Confirmed

Via ScienceDaily:

Physicists have confirmed the existence of exotic hadrons -- a type of matter that cannot be classified within the traditional quark model.

"We've confirmed the unambiguous observation of a very exotic state -- something that looks like a particle composed of two quarks and two anti-quarks", said one of the scientists.

"The discovery certainly doesn't fit the traditional quark model. It may give us a new way of looking at strong-interaction physics".

7 Infant Corpses Found In Utah Home; Mom Charged

Via Newser:

Police in Utah have been horrified to discover the bodies of seven babies in the garage of a home in a small town south of Salt Lake City.

Megan Huntsman, 39, has been booked on six counts of murder.

Investigators believe she gave birth to the babies, at least six of which were born alive, between 1996 and 2006 and suffocated or strangled them as soon as they were born, reports the Deseret News.

"It's unfathomable", a police spokesman says. "I can’t even imagine what’s going through somebody’s head to do that".

The woman's estranged husband is believed to be the father of the children but police say he is not a person of interest in the investigation and had recently been released after an 8 or 9-year term in prison, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The husband called police after finding a dead infant in a box while cleaning out the garage, and police found six more bodies in taped-up cardboard boxes.

Russia Test Fires Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile

Via Disclose.tv:

Russia’s strategic missile force and air and space defense force have test-launched an inter-continental ballistic missile RS-24 with a multiple warhead from the Plesetsk space site.

The missile blasted off from a mobile launcher at 10:40 Moscow time, the Defense Ministry’s strategic missile force spokesman, Colonel Igor Yegorov has said.

"The main task of the launch was to confirm the reliability of a batch of missiles manufactured at the Votkinsk plant, in Udmurtia", he said.

The experimental warheads arrived at the designated area at the Kura testing range, in Kamchatka Peninsula.

The objectives were achieved in full, Yegorov said.

Obama's Press Secretary Decorates Home With Soviet Propaganda

Via The Week:

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and his family are featured in a worshipful profile in this month's Washingtonian magazine.

It's the sort of adoring journalistic exercise reserved for only the most handsome of the power elite.

In it you can find out details about the Carney dog (a cousin to presidential pooch Sonny!), and how much the press secretary's tie costs ($135).

But keen observers may notice the kitchen decor in the photo: Soviet propaganda posters.

They really are the perfect pop of color whether you are the dour and sincere Nikita Khrushchev or the cheeky press-wrangler for a President who is constantly accused of being a socialist himself.

NASA Offers Explanation For Mars Mystery Light

Via Disclose.tv:

After a recent photograph of Mars ignited speculation that the Red Planet was home to intelligent life, NASA has come out with several different explanations for the mysterious light captured by the agency’s rover.

As RT reported earlier this week, on April 3 the Curiosity rover managed to take a picture with its right-hand navigation camera that seemed to show a beacon of light emanating from the planet’s surface.

Unfortunately for those excited by the possibility of discovering alien life forms, however, NASA poured some cold water onto the idea.

"One possibility is that the light is the glint from a rock surface reflecting the sun," NASA imaging scientist Justin Maki said to the Houston Chronicle.

"When these images were taken each day, the sun was in the same direction as the bright spot, west-northwest from the rover, and relatively low in the sky".

In a statement made to Space.com, Maki added another possibility, that the light could be caused by the way sunlight managed to hit Curiosity’s camera.

Woman Jailed For Swede Prof Stiletto Stabbing

Via The Local:

A 45-year-old woman has been sentenced to life imprisonment for killing a 59-year-old Swedish-born professor who was found dead in his home in Houston, Texas in June 2013, after having been stabbed repeatedly with a stiletto heel.

The woman claimed that she had been acting in self-defence.

"I never wanted to kill him", she said.

The victim, Alf Stefan Andersson, had worked as a professor of women's reproductive health at the University of Houston since 2009.

When he was found bloody and beaten in his apartment in the city, his body, both the face and neck, bore traces of having been stabbed with the sharp end of a 13 centimeter high heel at least 25 times.

His girlfriend, 44-year-old Ana Lilia Trujillo, was arrested shortly afterwards and promptly admitted to the attack, claiming self defence and arguing that she was the victim of an abusive relationship.

She told the court that on the evening of the murder he wrestled her to the ground and her lawyers claimed that she had been chased.

"It was never my intention to hurt him. I loved him. I wanted to get away. I never wanted to kill him", she said, according to the BBC.

The jury however went on the prosecutor's line of reasoning and concluded that the crime had been committed.

They furthermore concluded that the killing had not occurred on the spur of the moment, which could have meant the prison sentence being reduced from 45 to 20 years.

Jurors concluded that the some 25 stab wounds that the man had sustained could not be considered self-defence, pointing out furthermore that the woman had not sustained any injuries.

News of Andersson's death left officials at the University of Houston reeling.

"The University of Houston community is saddened to learn of the tragic death of Professor Stefan Andersson".

"Our hearts go out to his colleagues, family and friends during this difficult time", the university said in a statement at the time.

Coachella: Katy Perry Says Selfies Are A Disease

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

The selfie might be a favorite pastime for, uh, pretty much anyone with Instagram (or anyone with any kind of photographic device, for that matter).

But at Coachella we learned that at least one high profile entertainer who isn't a fan of the popular activity: Katy Perry.

After posing for photos inside a teepee at Harper Bazaar's private Shop Bazaar pool party at The Parker Palm Springs, the "Dark Horse" singer was asked to take a solo selfie after being handed a camera by a partygoer.

Perry initially refused, but ultimately relented when said partygoer agreed to be in the shot, too. Shortly after, the performer took to Twitter to express her thoughts on the matter.

Rihanna’s Ass Always Points Toward Barbados

Via WWTDD:

People don’t appreciate the fine art of multitasking until they see Rihanna able to smoke weed, get fitted for a new bluetooth wireless headset, and point her ass toward the cumulus formations all within the span of hours.

Rihanna’s funky new feminist poses ought to serve as the new caricature female in all sixth grade sexual education classes.

I remember seeing that drawing of a standing naked woman and wondering how the hell I get myself up in there.

But this pose, even a lemur who grew up without a daddy could figure out the slotting.

If Chris Brown could only see what he’s not slapping and calling "bitch" since he got locked up, I bet he’d become a much nicer guy.

Newly Found Megalithic Ruins In Russia, Largest Blocks Of Stone Ever Discovered

Via Disclose.tv:

An incredible discovery that was recently made in Russia threatens to shatter conventional theories about the history of the planet.

On Mount Shoria in southern Siberia, researchers have found an absolutely massive wall of granite stones.

Some of these gigantic granite stones are estimated to weigh more than 3.000 tons.

Found recently in Gornaya Shoria (Mount Shoria) in southern Siberia, this site consists of huge blocks of stone, which appear to be granite, with flat surfaces, right angles, and sharp corners.

The blocks appear to be stacked, almost in the manner of cyclopean masonry, and well…they’re enormous!

Russia is no stranger to ancient megalithic sites, like Arkaim or Russia’s Stonehenge, and the Manpupuner formation, just to name two, but the site at Shoria is unique in that, if it’s man-made, the blocks used are undoubtedly the largest ever worked by human hands.

Woman Throws Shoe At Hillary Clinton In Las Vegas

Via Las Vegas Review-Journal:

Hillary Clinton’s Las Vegas adventure Thursday might be good training if the Democrat runs for president and has to dodge critics — in this case one armed with a strappy shoe.

A female protester threw the footwear at Clinton near the start of her speech at a metal recycling conference as well as some papers that fluttered in the air like wings, prompting the former secretary of state to declare: "Is that a bat?"

When Clinton, who wasn’t hit by the shoe, realized someone threw something at her, she took it in stride.

"Is that somebody throwing something at me?" Clinton asked, putting her right hand above her eyes to cut the glare of lights from the stage at Mandalay Bay.

"Is that part of Cirque du Soleil?" Clinton quipped, prompting laughter from the audience.

"My goodness, I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial", she added, referring to what she was talking about when the protester took action around 1:52 p.m.

"Thank goodness she didn’t play softball like I did".

Apocalypse Now: Why A Rare Astrological Event Could Herald The "End Of Days"

Via Disclose.tv:

Mars, Earth, and the Sun have all aligned in a rare "opposition of the planets" that only happens once every 778 days.

But what made this event so remarkable is that it occured precisely a week before everyone on earth will see the first of FOUR dark red "blood moons", an extraordinary event some Christians believe represents the End of Days and the second coming of Christ.

The Bible predicts: "The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD comes", Joel 2:31.

And, according to NASA, a highly unusual "Tetrad" - four successive total "blood-red" lunar eclipses each followed by six full moons - will, indeed, start next Tuesday and finish on September 28, 2015.

The incredible alignment has only happened a handful of times in the last two thousand years but, remarkably, on each of the last three occasions it has coincided with a globally significant religious event.

Pastor and author John Hagee, from San Antonio, Texas, has written a book on the phenomenon. He believes it marks the dawn of a "hugely significant event" for the world.

He says: "This is not something that some religious think tank has put together".

"NASA has confirmed that the Tetrad has only happened three times in more than 500 years - and that it's going to happen now".

The first Tetrad since the Middle Ages, in 1493, saw the expulsion of Jews by the Catholic Spanish Inquisition, which rocked western Europe.

The second coincided with the establishment of the State of Israel - after thousands of years of struggle - in 1949.

Strangely, the last one occurred in 1967 - far earlier than expected - precisely at the time of the Six-Day Arab–Israeli War.

A spokesman for NASA said: "This is the first eclipse of the year and is well placed for observers throughout the Western Hemisphere. It will occur at the lunar orbit's ascending node in Virgo. This is the first of four consecutive total lunar eclipses in 2014 and 2015 - a series known as a Tetrad".

He added: "The frequency of Tetrads is variable over time. Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli first pointed out that Tetrads were relatively plentiful during one 300-year interval, while none occurred at all during the next 300 years. The 565-year period of the Tetrad 'seasons' is tied to the slowly decreasing eccentricity of Earth's orbit. In the distant future Tetrads will no longer be possible".

The last Tedrad occurred in 1967 during the Six-Day Arab–Israeli War [AFP].

Mr Hagee explains: "According to the Biblical prophecy, world history is about to change dramatically".
