In response to a recent post claiming Canada’s state run liquor stores are a problem because three of their employees were tricked into selling booze to an underage teen disguised by a conservative journalist, I thought I would point out that Americans working for privately owned liquor stores in The U.S. do it while looking the young people straight in the face. No disguise required.

The Western campaign for global dominance has reached the top of the world. To the world’s military leaders, the debate over climate change is long over. They are preparing for a new kind of Cold War in the Arctic, anticipating that rising temperatures there will open up a treasure trove of resources and long-dreamed-of sea-lanes. The largest military exercise in the High North, inside and immediately outside the Arctic Circle, since the end of the Cold War (and perhaps even before) was completed on March 21 in northern Norway. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/recent-news/43061-cold-response-2012-nato-are-preparing-for-a-new-kind-of-cold-war-in-the-arcticThe Western campaign for global dominance has reached the top of the world.

Artist and architect Daan Roosegaarde (1979) explores the dawn of a new nature that is evolving from technological innovations by creating interactive landscapes that instinctively respond to sound and movement. His connection established between ideology and technology, results in what Roosegaarde calls “techno-poetry”. Last we heard of Dutch techno artist Daan Roosegaarde, he was busy working up a sexy e-teddy that flashes its wearer’s netherbits just by being around other people. Now, he’s turned the idea on architecture: His new Lotus 7.0 wall transforms from a sturdy boundary to a see-through fence in the presence of others -- every Peeping Tom’s dream. http://www.freeturbine.com/index.php/news/artists-news/item/lotus-70-techno-poetry-between-ideology-and-technologyArtist and architect Daan Roosegaarde (1979) explores the dawn of a new nature that is... more
The United States Federal Emergency Management Agency has numerous detainment camps throughout the United States. Some camps have been recently constructed and / or renovated and are fully staffed. The existence of the camps coupled with Presidential Executive Orders giving the President and Department of Homeland Security (of which FEMA is now part) control over ‘national essential functions’ in the event of ‘catastrophic emergency’ have resulted in concerns that the camps will be used to forcefully detain American citizens for unconstitutional purposes. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/bizzareweird/43037-us-fema-campsThe United States Federal Emergency Management Agency has numerous detainment camps... more

How can QR CODES help find Missing or Abducted Children and People? Just POINT, SCAN and SHARE information with your Smartphone directly from a Missing Children / People Posters "QR CODE" (Quick Response) with everyone online. Using your Smart phone and FREE downloadable apps provided by iPhone, Blackberry or cellular providers, QR 2D Matrix Barcodes are becoming a mainstream here in the US and Canada. QR Code, short for Quick Response, are relatively new to North American markets but are already used in Japan, Asia and Europe.
QR CODES on Missing Children Posters:
Please JOIN our FACEBOOK Group :
The implementation of QR Codes on Missing Children Posters by National Missing Children / People Program Services and non-government organizations (NGO) can help the public to disseminate and share information directly from a printed wall mounted missing poster, displayed in many box stores, supermarkets and at borders crossings across United States and in Canada, onto online social networking groups. The use of this Mobil technology will help to find missing children or missing people world-wide.
The use of QR 2D Matrix Codes on marketing materials, advertisements or posters, eliminates the need to manually write down or type into a smartphone the URL displayed and instantly connects the user to information or online content such as websites, vCards, Youtube Video's, URL's, Facebook, Twitter or can even Downloads Files.
Stephen Watkins, a father searching for his two international Missing / Abducted sons, is making the suggestion to the RCMP and National Missing Children NGO's in Canada to incorporate and implement the new QR CODE barcode technology on all National Missing Children / People Posters.
Mr. Watkins has not seen or heard from his two sons in over 2-years. Alexander & Christopher Watkins were Internationally Abducted into the United States then to Europe by their non-custodial Mother, Edyta ( Ustaszewski / Ustaszewska ) Watkins. She used a Canceled / Revoked Canadian Passport to enter the United States and then board an airline and fly to Germany with the boys. She may have been possibly assisted by her father, the boy's grandfather, who is currently appearing before the Criminal Courts in Ontario, Canada. Police believe the boys are still in Europe and possibly in the countries of Poland, German or Austria. There have been NO reported sightings and they can be anywhere in Europe.
"I desperately need the Publics help to locate my missing sons. I am hoping that QR CODES will help make it easier for the Public to share my son's information."
This new technology, along with social online networking in addition that we know North Americans are adopting Smartphones faster than any other form of mobile device, provides the ability to share Missing Children / People cases right from a printed "Missing Children Poster" which has been same since the first poster was created in 1874 for Charlie Brewster Ross.
This improves the current Missing Children / Person Poster format which has been around for over 100 years and integrates it with today's technology.
"It is a parents worst nightmare and there is almost nothing worst than having your children go missing."
Please help to share all QR CODES found on missing children / people posters with your online social networks. If you see a missing person, please report to police as soon as possible. You would want others to do the same if it was your child or family member missing. Together we can find our loved ones. Thank you!

Superman Vs. God? Who is the most superior of superior beings? Find out here!
Well if it says it in books it much be true.
In her radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant
Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus
18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance.
The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, written by a US man,
and posted on the Internet. Funny stuff.
Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I
have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that
knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend
the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that
Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination ... End of
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other
elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.
1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and
female, provided they are from neighboring nations. A friend of mine
claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you
clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in
Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair
price for her?
3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her
period of Menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how
do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a
pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors.
They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus
35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated
to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an
abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than
homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there
'degrees' of abomination?
7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I
have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading
glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room
8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair
around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.
19:27. How should they die?
9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes
me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two
different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments
made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also
tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go
to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them?
Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family
affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy
considerable expertise in such matters, so I'm confident you can help.
Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
Your adoring fan.

*The Attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla and International Law* by Lawyers for Palestinian Human RightsImposing a blockade over a coastline is not legal under international law save in specific circumstances involving armed conflict: war must be declared (imposing a unilateral blockade is, in and of itself, an act of war) or Israel must be acting as a belligerent occupier (something which it strongly denies). The Law of the Sea is quite plain that, when an incident takes place on a ship on the high seas (outside anybody's territorial waters), the applicable law is that of the flag state of the ship on which the incident occurred. In legal terms, the Turkish ship was Turkish territory. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/recent-news/385-freedom-flotillaImposing a blockade over a coastline is not legal under international law save in... more

It might seem bizarre that science is using art to learn about the mind—looking for hard facts in the most ethereal of places. But great artists turn out to be the world's first neuroscientists. Consider the flightless fluffs of brown otherwise known as herring gull chicks. Since they're entirely dependent on their mothers for food, they're born with a powerful instinct. Whenever they see a bird beak, they frantically peck at it, begging for their favorite food: a regurgitated meal. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/section-blog/290-unlocking-the-mysteries-of-the-artistic-mind-It might seem bizarre that science is using art to learn about the mind—looking... more
I like asking people questions from our Twitter account. When I ask these questions in the office, at best I get 2 responses: "why are you asking me this question?" But on Twitter people respond earnestly, as if asking that weird question wasn't weird.
I like to ask people what they ate for lunch, right before I go to lunch, so I get ideas for food. Today I didn't know what I wanted to listen to (or what I was going to blog about) so I asked Twitter "what was the first song you heard this morning?"
As I'm writing this, I cannot recall the first song I heard this morning. I do know the first song that linawho heard today: "baudelaire" by ...trail of dead. It seems like a lot of the first songs people hear in their day are completely accidental. Uberlegitimate was listening to NPR news, and then some how ended up hearing "Drop it Like it's Hot." MaryanneRiley unintentionally heard "4 Minutes" by JT & Madonna because it was playing at the gas station. kid_amy turned on her car, and Magical Mystery Tour popped on.
Some people aren't totally sure what song they heard. Sefus started his day with Radiohead's High and Dry or "at least" he thinks "thats the name of it." tabithakaruna took forever to remember it, but it turned out she was listening to Cold as Ice by Foreigner. chelsobelso says she heard "the Hair musical song, called Hair i think."
Sometimes the first song you hear in the morning guides your day. bcross says "Justice - Genesis... appropriate I guess" haha yeah, it's always good to start your day from the beginning. born2____ used "Suffer for Fashion" by Of Montreal to pick out his outfit for the day.
Everyone wins, but the video that gets embedded is (drum roll, please)

In part two of our series entitled, "Why did you build that feature?" I'm tackling our URL shortener and the Current Bar. We posted a quick run-through for these features last week, but considering the questions surrounding them it felt right to take a closer look.
"Why make a shortener that is 26 characters when others are much shorter?"
Great question. Our URL shortener is truly designed with one intent in mind: providing a better experience when viewing and sharing Current.com content. While it's not the shortest shortener around, at 26 characters this is a massive improvement -- shaving off 11 characters from the shortest Current.com URL previously available. But shortening is really just half of the feature here. Our shortened URLs combine with our new Current Bar to make browsing, sharing, and discussing content on Current much more enjoyable.
Take this story on Current.com for example, "Last of Africa's desert elephants ravaged by severe drought."
Comparison of Current.com shortener and Current Bar use on source stories from Current.com
Originally, when you would click on source URLs, a new window would pop open to load the source article. This still happens, however there are two distinct changes to this flow now -- when you click on the source URL (found below the title of the story) or the image of a story on Current.com it will open the original story in a new window/tab along with the Current Bar at the top of the page, and a shortened URL in your browser bar (see below).
That's right, the original source URL is automatically shortened for you when you click through from Current.com -- just in case you decide to share the story with someone else via Facebook or Twitter.
So, why the Current Bar at the top of the page? The Current Bar offers voting buttons, the title and full source link, and buttons to respond to the discussion back on Current.com and to share the story with others via your various social networks.
Note: We've received a lot of feedback from our community around the use of voting on Current.com, specifically around the fact that many people in our community tend to vote on items without reading the original source story, OR that they click through to read the full source and forget to vote on the story.
The Current Bar attempts to solve for this problem. Gone are the days of clicking through to read the source only to forget to vote or respond back on Current. Have faith, the Bar is there to help remind you. Plus, it gives you an easy way to jump back into the discussion on Current.com after reading the story for yourself.
As Steph pointed out last week, the shortener can also be used to shorten any URL for any story you happen to find around the web. So for example, if you are reading a great article about how the creators of Delgo are hinting at a lawsuit after watching the trailer for Avatar, you have a few options:
Take the original link:
Type in current.com/ between the // (doubleslash) and the www in the original URL, and you get this:
When you browse to this new link you will see our shortener in action, and you'll end up creating this URL:
At this point, the story still hasn't been submitted to Current.com, so the Current Bar looks a little different:
You can submit it easily by clicking the "Add to Current" button. If you don't want to add it yourself, you can still use the shortened Current.com URL to share the story with people on other social networks. Who knows, maybe one of your followers or friends will submit it to Current for you.
So what are you waiting for? Try it out for yourself, create and share some shortened Current URLs, and most importantly shoot us some feedback and let us know what you think!In part two of our series entitled, "Why did you build that feature?"... more
