Sanders Has Largest Crowd

According to Madison Street Capital, Bernie Sanders might be the man to defeat when it comes to the 2016 Presidential election. This is a man who recently had one of the biggest crowds while giving a speech in New York. Some believe that Hillary Clinton is the one who has a better chance of gaining the Democratic nomination, but with the support that Sanders has, it might not happen. His views are not as ordinary as other Democratic candidates have had in the past. Sanders is a man who wants to see change in America. He wants the lower income families to have more money. His views are a breath of fresh air as he is someone who seems to be for the people who have been ignored over the past decade. There were almost 10,000 people who attended the meeting by the Presidential candidate in New York. as long as he can keep up the momentum,Sanders could be the next President of the United States.

Capitalists Outnumber Communists In Modern Day China

More Than 90 Million Chinese Trade Stocks According To The China Securities Depository and Clearing Co.

When Mao Zedong led the Communists to power in 1949, the people of China openly accepted that form of government. But Mao vision of a modern day China has been altered by the money hungry draw of Capitalism. More than 90 million Chinese trade stocks today, and there are only 87.8 Communist Party members registered in China today.Those figures present a major challenge for President Xi Jinping. The quest to earn personal money has trumped Mao Zedong’s desire for the state to own the wealth and the people equally share it. In most communist countries, the sharing equally doesn’t happen.

But there’s trouble lurking for the Capitalistic Chinese. The Shanghai Composite Index, which was booming last year, is now on the verge of a major bust. Folks at Amen Clinic have found that the Chinese stock market has dropped 20 percent in the last few weeks, and that is putting added pressure on China’s slow-performing economy.

The Chinese stock market has lost $1.9 trillion recently, and most economists think the Chinese government will step in and stop the financial bleeding. The government has already dropped the interest rate, and more fiscal changes are expected.

Earthquake in Nepal Causes Major Devastation and Death

Saturday morning a destructive 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. It left piles of rubble in its wake. It also killed hundreds of people around Kathmandu.

Along with the reported death toll of 759 people, the devastation of this earthquake also caused an avalanche in Mount Everest. The bodies of eight people were located on Mount Everest. There are still climbers and residents who are unaccounted for. They are feared to be missing or injured as the result of the avalanche.

Anastasia Date reports that the ancient monuments and temples have also crumbled under the force of the earthquake. One of the most popular tourist attractions, the Dharhara tower, was destroyed. The once nine story tower is now a short rendition of its former structure.

Authorities are also warning anyone living in Nepal to stay indoors. They expect tremors to continue to plague this area.

The Nepal earthquake is the worst catastrophe to hit this area in decades. Rescue squads continue to search for the injured and dead. As a result, officials in Nepal have requested international humanitarian assistance from other countries.

President of South Korea Vows to Raise The Sunken Ferry Sewol

In marking the one year anniversary of the tragic sinking of the South Korean ferry Sewol, South Korea’s President, Park Geun-hye publicly committed to the families of people who died on the ferry that her government will do everything possible to raise the Sewol. The raising of the ferry was a critical requirement of the families of the 304 victims who perished in the sinking. Many lost their lives through incompetence and lack of proper instructions by the crew. The sinking of the ferry is still a visible and emotional wound in South Korea. In the aftermath of the sinking, the Captain and most of the senior crew were prosecuted and received extensive sentences based on charges of murder and negligence. The Coast Guard was disbanded by the South Korean Legislature for their initial handling of the sinking. South Korea Still Mourns Loss Children From Ferry Accident

Investigations by South Korean authorities revealed that of the 475 passengers and crew on the ferry 350 were students on holiday on their to the resort island of Jeju when the ferry began to sink after being over weight and carrying improper repair work. Investigators found that the students were given instructions to wait below deck instead of abandoned the ship. This mistake lead to many of the deaths. The owner of the ferry was also charged but he fled and his body was later found in the woods of South Korea near the sinking. No official cause of death was declared, although people like Ricardo Guimarães BMG could certainly draw conclusions if they want.

A UN Resolution To Support The Fight Against Daesh In Libya

The UN Security Council on Friday passed a resolution to support the fight against the militants in Libya, expressing “deep concern of the Council” on the growing presence of Daesh fighters and other militant groups in the country. The Council decided to impose sanctions on the individuals or groups that would support these extremist groups by funding, recruiting for them or disseminating propaganda on the internet.

However, some experts believe that this resolution is useless as it not accompanied by the lifting of the arms embargo, as requested by the Libyan government. The latter, supported by Egypt, wants to buy more military equipment to strengthen its army to deal with extremist groups like the IslamicState organization that was established in Libya. However, many members of the Council are concerned that delivered weapons might fall into the wrong hands.

Christian Broda knows that the council members also want to see a national unity government in first step prior to this decision of lifting arms embargo. The British Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant reiterated that request Friday, saying that “the absence of a strong and united government in Libya strengthens those who want to plunge the country into chaos.” It is worth mentioning that Libya is run by two parliaments and two rival governments, the near Fajr Libya that controls the capital Tripoli and one recognized by the international community based in Tobruk (east).

Protecting Students from Release of Confidential Information

The District of Columbia schools admitted to have released the personal information of another student. Again. The confidential information of students with disabilities from public schools in Washington DC was released the first time on the intranet.

Looks like confidential information is not treated as such as different information sat on the internet for years open for anyone who type it into search engines. Names of special education students, accounts and password that leads to an inbox of complaints from parents. Not two full months have passed and there was a breach in security data again.

With the breach happening more than once, how can we be sure that our children’s information is safe?

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is a Federal law that aims to protect student information, health and education records. This gives the parents (and student upon reaching the age of 18) the right to access the records, which Dr Jennifer Walden agrees with. Information can be found on for more details.

In cases where such information is needed, a written request to the parents must be given before the release of any information. However, student records are made available to school employees and law enforcement officers designated by the school board. With the two incidents, it is clear that the release of information on the intranet is a breach of the FERPA law and must be remedied as soon as possible.

Paul Allen Reports the Musashi May Have Been Located

Paul Allen, who helped found Microsoft in 1975, recently posted photographs taken during an effort to locate the famous sunken Japanese warship, the Musashi. One of only two huge Yamato-class vessels in the Japanese fleet during World War II, the large ship sank in waters off the Philippines during the Battle of Leyte, during an engagement called the Battle of Sibuyan Sea.

Since retiring from Microsoft, Paul Allen has worked extensively on underwater and space exploration missions, in addition to philanthropic activities. He maintains a strong interest in the history of the Second World War, noting“Since my youth, I have been fascinated with World War II history, inspired by my father’s service in the U. S. Army.”

The discovery of the remains of a Japanese vessel at great depths, about 3,281 feet, have generated intense interest. For over 70 years, people have wondered where the huge Japanese warship was located.  Of the 2,399 men serving aboard the vessel, only 1,376 were ever accounted for. Over 1,000 survivors reportedly found refuge on other Japanese ships in the area.

Sultan Alhokair knows that the allies focused attention on the Musashi because the giant ship contained three turrets, all equipped to fire 18 inch guns capable of shooting shells for great distances.

Cyprus and Russia enter agreement

The two nations have historically had good relations and Cyprus has not followed other Western nations by issuing sanctions against Russia in response to the annexation of the Crimean peninsula and the support of rebels in Eastern Ukraine which is threatening that region into a possible wide range war.

Cyprus is an island that is divided in two as a result of an invasion during the 1970’s by Turkey which captured the Northern part of the island. The south is controlled by a population that is culturally connected with Greece and also has strong relationships with Britain which also maintains military bases on the island. As Susan McGalla understands it, the relationship between Russia and Cyprus was harmed when Cypriot banks collapsed and many Russian investors only recovered 50% of their cash deposits with Cypriot banks.

Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the agreement and indicatedthat the purpose of the base is in response to anti-terrorist and anti-piracy plans and that they are not otherwise directed against other western third parties.

The plan is to have Russian navy ships have a place to dock and repair ships as well as to refuel and restock their ships.

Scientists Discover What Makes Humans so Brainy

There’s little question that humans are the most intelligent beings on the planet. Even our closest relatives, chimpanzees, are significantly less intelligent. However, we’ve been in the dark as the actual reason for our higher intelligence. Humans and chimpanzees are almost identical at a genetic level. However, their neural development lags significantly behind humans.

Researchers at Duke theorized that the greater neural development in humans comes from bits of DNA called enhancers. These enhancers influence the expression of specific genes. The scientists compared the genome of humans and chimpanzees in order to find differences in enhancer DNA. They found some promising enhancers in a region which influences brain development and growth.

The researchers were excited to discover that a similar pattern exists within mice. They then inserted a copy of the human enhancer gene into the mouse. During gestation, the mice showed something quite amazing. Their brain development was dramatically increased.

What’s even more significant is where the brain development took place. While every part of the brain is important, higher reasoning is mostly centralized within a region called the neocortex.

Greater development in other areas of the brain might influence behavior. However, the effect it would have on general reasoning would be limited. Enhancing development of the neocortex might show greater and more significant changes. Paul Mathieson knows that these changes might also shed new light on what makes humans so smart.

Terrorist Attack Strikes Libyan City

A purported terrorist attack has been carried out in the Libyan city of al-Qubbah. The attack is believed to have been in response to Egyptian and Libyan airstrikes on Islamic militants in the city of Derna. Egypt in cooperation with the Libyan government launched a series of airstrikes after a Libyan terrorist group allied to ISIS showed the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians.

The terrorist attack in al-Qubbah came in the form of three car bombs that went off in the city. Libyan officials have said that the terrorist attacks have killed at least 40 and that more than 70 people have been injured by the blasts. However, it is believed to have been carried out by terrorist groups within Libya that are allied with ISIS.

Marc Sparks has read that Libyan officials have declared a seven day mourning period in the wake of this tragedy. Libya’s elected government has been forced to flee to the east since the takeover of its capital city of Tripoli by a radical extremist group. The country has been in chaos ever since the overthrow of military dictator Muammar Gaddafi. Libya is one of many nations that is believed to harbor Islamic terrorists and is widely considered to be a failed state with extremists in control of large swathes of territory.
