My results are quite accurate, I think.


Quote:2.3 to 3.2. Borderline case. You have an interest in alternative explanations. You are out of the mainstream, but America is still a free country, right?


As for that last question..errr...no. Nowhere close to what it used to be. But what do I know, I'm Canadian !

  Pakistani woman burns daughter alive for eloping

Pakistani woman burns daughter alive for eloping
ZAHEER BABAR, Associated Press
ASIF SHAHZAD, Associated Press

LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — A woman in Pakistan burned her 17-year-old daughter alive on Wednesday to punish her for marrying against the family's wishes, the latest in a series of so-called "honor killings" that claim the lives of nearly 1,000 women every year in the conservative Muslim country.

Police say Zeenat Rafiq's mother, Parveen, tied her to a cot and drenched her with kerosene before lighting her on fire. Neighbors in the congested, working-class neighborhood in the eastern city of Lahore came running when they heard the screams, but family members kept them from entering the house, said Nighat Bibi, who lives nearby.

The police eventually arrived and found the charred body near a staircase. They arrested the mother soon thereafter.

The victim's husband, Hassan Khan, told reporters the two had been "in love since our school days" but the family had rejected several marriage proposals, forcing them to elope last month. He showed an affidavit of consent signed by his wife before a magistrate. He also showed cellphone photos of a smiling Zeenat wearing a red dress.

Sheikh Hammad, a local police official, said Parveen confessed to killing her daughter with the help of her son Ahmar. He quoted the woman as saying "I don't have any regrets." Another police officer, Ibadat Nisar, said the body showed signs of beating and strangulation.

Hundreds of women are killed every year in Pakistan -- often by their own family members -- for violating the country's conservative norms regarding love and marriage. Sex outside of marriage is seen by conservative Pakistanis as a stain on the honor of the woman's entire family, one that can only be removed by killing her.

Last week a schoolteacher, Maria Bibi, was set on fire for refusing to marry a man twice her age. The prime suspect in the case — the father of the man she refused to marry — and the other four are in custody.

A month earlier, police arrested 13 members of a local tribal council who allegedly strangled a girl and set her on fire for helping a friend elope. The charred body of 17-year-old Ambreen Riasat was found in a burned van.

Khan, the husband of the woman killed in Lahore, said her mother and uncle had visited her three days ago to try to persuade her to return home and have a marriage ceremony with the family, so that she wouldn't be branded as someone who had eloped. He recalled his wife telling him: "Don't let me go, they will kill me."

  First State to Test Fully Automated Passenger Drones

Nevada Becomes the First State to Test Fully Automated Passenger Drones

I do like what one of the replies said: Quote: Al Kene13 hours ago
I can't wait to get up in the air with absolutely no control over my situation in a Chinese-manufactured product.
What could go wrong? End Quote:

Quote:June 9, 2016
[Image: passenger_drone.jpg]
By James Holbrooks
The China-based manufacturer of a fully automated, passenger-carrying transportation drone was given permission on Monday to run test flights in Nevada, marking the first time such technology has come to the United States.
Ehang, Inc., unveiled its prototype Ehang 184 drone at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in January. That’s where Mark Barker, business director for the Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems — the state-sponsored nonprofit group that approved Ehang’s request — first encountered the vehicle.
“It caught everybody’s attention,” Barker told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Since then, Nevada officials and Ehang representatives have been working toward a partnership. Now, with official government approval to test within the state, Barker and his associates at the institute can help the Chinese company achieve accreditation under Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) guidelines.
“We will help them submit necessary test results and reports to the FAA and all that kind of stuff,” Barker said. “It’s a big deal to Ehang and it’s a big deal for NIAS and the state of Nevada because we will be helping them to test and validate their system.”
Compact and lightweight — the Ehang 184 is only four feet tall and weighs under 450 lbs — the vehicle would target short- to medium-range transportation needs for single passengers at a time.


After hopping into the cab and customizing settings such as lighting and temperature, passengers enter their destination into a touchscreen, tap a button, then sit back and enjoy the flight.

Governmental drone regulation has proved tricky, as officials try to balance the benefits of what the growing commercial industry can offer against the inherent dangers of this largely untested technology.
But many see bright days ahead for the future of commercial drone manufacturers.
“Passenger drones have huge potential,” Dr. Mirko Kovac, director of the Aerial Robotics Lab at Imperial College London, told the BBC.
Quote:They can decrease congestion, offer flights in challenging environments and in developing countries where the road infrastructure is not as developed.
While acknowledging that, currently, “people are afraid of drones” — most notably due to UAVs fast becoming an icon of military combat — Dr. Kovac feels those fears will eventually be put aside.
“I think society will overcome this once the technology is more proven,” he told the BBC.
As for Ehang’s choice of Nevada as their testing ground, that decision makes perfect sense. The state has long been lobbying to bring what it sees as an industry on the rise within its borders.
Citing a report by the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), a 2015 article by Nevada Business magazine claimed that “Integration of unmanned aerial vehicles into the U.S. would create more than 100,000 jobs and have an economic impact of $82 billion nationally by 2025.”
Tom Wilczek, of the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development, sees an opportunity. “Even if we only see 10 percent or only capture 10 percent of the market, that’s $9 billion,” he said of AUVSI’s numbers.
And the state appears ready to accommodate.
Already, Nevada is one of only six sites FAA-authorized to conduct trial research on UAVs. And more and more, universities and private nonprofits are working with state lawmakers to hammer out the best way to cultivate what signs suggest could soon be a booming industry.
“That’s what’s really exciting about it,” University of Nevada-Reno’s Warren Rapp told the Nevada Appeal back in January. “It’s a whole new chapter for Nevada.”

Quote:Hillary received 15,899,116 votes this year.
Bernie Sanders received 12,193,152 votes.


Hillary and Bernie received 28,092,268 total primary votes this year.
In 2008 Hillary Clinton received 17,493,836 primary votes.
So this year Hillary received 1,594,720 FEWER primary votes than in 2008.
And she lost in 2008!
Horrible.

More than 35,029,294 votes were cast in the 2008 Democratic primary.
So Democrats lost nearly 7 million primary votes this year compared to 2008.
This is devastating news for the Democrats.
Happy Link
Hopefully, it's Very Devastating for Hillary!

  The world’s most elite conference this year will discuss something called “the precar
Posted by: guohua - 06-09-2016, 06:27 AM - Forum: General News and Events - Replies (4)

Yes The Super Elites will met again this year, it seems they're concerned with the up raising of certain groups of citizens that have been quite and in the background.
They are worried that the Silent Majority Have Grown Tired Of Taking It In The Ass!

Quote:For when Davos isn’t exclusive enough, there is Bilderberg. The Bilderberg Meeting is an annual gathering of world leaders, executives, and assorted grandees, established in 1954 and named for the Dutch hotel where the secretive group first gathered.

Amid heavy security, around 130 people—including three prime ministers and 30 CEOs—will hold talks on the world’s most pressing issues this week. The four-day retreat starts on Thursday (June 9) at an undisclosed location in Dresden, Germany.
This year’s agenda includes predictable topics like “China,” “migration,” and “cyber security.” But one talking point is particularly intriguing, addressing the “precariat and middle class.”
The what? The “precariat” is a term popularized by British economist Guy Standing, describing a growing class of people who feel insecure in their jobs, communities, and life in general. They are…
Quote:…the perpetual part-timers, the minimum-wagers, the temporary foreign workers, the grey-market domestics paid in cash… the techno-impoverished whose piecemeal work has no office and no end, the seniors who struggle with dwindling benefits, the indigenous people who are kept outside, the single mothers without support, the cash labourers who have no savings, the generation for whom a pension and a retirement is neither available nor desired.
This marginalized group—“alienated, anomic, anxious, and angry,” according to Standing—is fueling the rise of populist politicians like Donald Trump in the US and similar rabble rousers in Europe and beyond. (Discussing this group alongside the middle class, which isn’t doing great either, is telling.) The resulting turmoil in politics, markets, and economics is a factor in nearly all of the Bilderberg meeting’s other agenda items.
Now catch the Conspiracy Theorist Part! That's US!!!! :thumbsup: 

Quote:So what will the bigwigs do about it? Conspiracy theorists may think that Bilderberg members are in league with the IlluminatiFreemasons, and Lizard People, hatching the New World Order from their secret hideouts. More likely is that the politicians and power brokers meeting in Germany this week are as taken aback by the travails of the increasingly marginalized masses as anybody else.

But what the Bilderbergers really think will remain a mystery. According to the group’s code, “There is no desired outcome, no minutes are taken and no report is written. Furthermore, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.”
