Angry mob of students destroy Tesco

Maybe those doors are there for a reason.

Angry students stormed a Tesco when a protest in London got carried away. It seems like absolute chaos on the video. It appears at first that they broke the window but they actually did storm the inside of the building until London police made a human barrier to protect the store.

Edit: The title of this post might sound a bit misleading. That was not intentional.

City of Cape Town warns beach goers about high shark activity

The City of Cape Town and the Shark Spotting Programme in Cape Town warned beach goers about an ongoing high Great White Shark activity in the False Bay and Muizenberg areas as well as Fish Hoek and Clovelly areas.

The Shark spotters also noted that there are groups of sharks or "more than one shark at any given time at both beeches" at Fish Hoek and Muizenberg.

Therefore the City of Cape Town issues a "general caution" which will remain in place because of the high levels of activity.

The City appeals to all water users to be extra vigilant at this time, to familiarise themselves with the recent shark activity in the area before entering the water, obey the shark siren, and to take note of the Shark Spotters’ flags and signage for regular updates on shark sightings. The four-flag warning system works in the following manner:

  • A red flag indicates a Shark Alert. This flag will be flown during periods of increased shark activity, after a shark has recently been spotted in the area and the beach cleared, or when conditions are conducive to high shark activity
  • A green flag means that the spotting conditions are good and no sharks have been seen
  • A black flag means that the spotting conditions are poor, but no sharks have been seen
  • A white flag with a black shark diagram means that a shark is currently near the beach, and beach users must get out of the water. A siren is sounded and the white flag is raised.

South Africa’s race double standards

Author and columnist Annelie Botes made some comments that has just about everyone in South Africa talking. She told an Afrikaans newspaper that she “does not like black people”.

She is an award winning novelist but her publishers have distanced themselves from this comment. Feeling threatened by a black person if one is white is nothing new, a lot of people feel the same as Annelie Botes but refuse to acknowledge it.

She said she feels threatened by black people because she feels that black men are the “face of crime” in South Africa.

She has now been widely condemned, accused, and bad mouthed because of her comments but this also shows the double standards of South Africans. Just yesterday the court reaffirmed that the singing of “kill the boer” in South Africa is illegal and hate speech after the ruling party, the ANC went to court to sing about killing this white minority in South Africa.

White people are under constant attack and persecuted for being white yet this is no big deal to many because they are so conditioned into accepting that white people deserve this because of apartheid.

Recently Julius Malema said:

“They do not participate in anything that is of national importance, they do not observe national days, they do not support national initiatives,”

“… they do not care about the development of this country, they are forever obsessed with whether they are going to be attacked or robbed.”

and previously comments that did not spark national debate of the kind were:

“We are going to kill you whites like flies when Mandela dies” – Judge John Motata

” You must not steal from blacks- rather steal from whites”- Willy Madisha

“Whites must watch-out- we will take action and make the country un-governable if they do not get in line quickly”- Gwede Mantasha

” Let me tell you my friend- I have triumphed over your apartheid regime,- and I will triumph over you again- once and for all”- Julius Malema

” I have beaten the Colonials – and I am going to beat the children of the children of the Colonials”- Julius Malema

Some serious double standards in South African society.

American madness a consumer society

Has all Americans lost the plot? Since the whole Black Friday disaster video after video surfaces of normal people who become like animals slavering at the mouth over things they do not actually need. In a time when their whole world is falling apart and their rights being taken away, while the banks bankrupt them and their country they queue up and stampede shops because of a sale. Utterly unbelievable. The following video is made by an concerned American who obviously was disturbed by the behaviour of his fellow Americans.

Heritage Foundation warns of nuclear EMP attack

The Heritage Foundation in America warned of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack that could wipe out almost all civilian and military infrastructures.

A massive EMP attack on the United States would produce almost unimaginable devastation. Communications would collapse, transportation would halt, and electrical power would simply be non-existent.

They claim that if a nuclear device is detonated high in the atmosphere above American mainland that it would destroy the country’s electrical grid “shutting down nearly all communications, transportation, and service systems. Overnight, daily life as Americans know it will be a thing of the past.”

Now the Heritage Foundation is calling upon Obama to listen before it is too late.

They warn that “Much of the world’s intellectual brain power (half of it is in the United States) would be lost as well. Earth would most likely recede into the “new” Dark Ages.”

A nuclear device detonated high in the atmosphere above the American mainland can easily disable the country’s electrical grid—shutting down nearly all communications, transportation, and service systems. Overnight, daily life as Americans know it will be a thing of the past. There are ways to prevent devastation from an EMP — and the U.S. must invest in them now before it is too late.

Wikileaks – America’s best weapon yet?

It is getting more obvious as the Wikileaks documents come out that some of them must be fake or setup. The reason for this is that a lot of the evidence in the Wikileaks released files contradict previous evidence of certain events.

Yesterday Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad raised concern about the “leaked” documents published by Wikileaks. He claims they are psychological warfare.

One of the biggest inconsistencies about Wikileaks in relation to other sites for instance torrent sites is that the US Department of Homeland Security ceased 76 domains for copyright violation without court orders. If they are so hellbent on censoring certain websites why did they not censor Wikileaks as well? It might be speculation but that is because Wikileaks is going to give them reason to invade Iran.

So like 100’s of other people ask, is Wikileaks part of a bigger conspiracy?

Google Earth 6 released

Google Earth 6 just launched with amazingly new integration with Streetview. The Streetview integration is now massive and not hidden away in a layer anymore but a main part of Google Earth.

The little yellow man is also standing tall in Google Earth 6 showing you the blue lines where Streetview is available.

Google Earth 6 is still in Beta but Google usually put things in beta for some time before actually launching the final versions.

The most amazing part we saw was the trees, they look absolutely amazing. The Streetview integration come second and puts the Google Earth experience on a whole new level.

Update on Streetview: Usually when zooming in from space you would stop above ground, for instance above the building. Now with Google Earth 6 you can zoom right into Streetview and give it a more realistic flight experience.

Pegman is also now docked on the side of the navigation controls, wherever you see blue lines you can drag the pegman onto it and instantly view the ground view. As Google pointed out: you can now move seamlessly from one location to another as if you’re walking down the street by using the scroll-wheel on your mouse or the arrow keys on your keyboard. If you want to visit somewhere farther away, simply click the “exit” button and you’ll immediately return to an aerial view where you can easily fly to your next destination.

The historical imagery was also a big part of the new Google Earth 5 but now the historical imagery is at a more viewable place, easier to quickly find and use.

Update on Historical view: Google said the following about the update on the historical imagery:

So with this new version, we’ve made it very easy to discover historical imagery. When you fly to an area where historical imagery is available, the date of the oldest imagery will appear in the status bar at the bottom of the screen. If you click on this date, you’ll instantly be taken back in time to view imagery from that time period. You can then browse through all the historical imagery available for that location, or simply close the time control and return to the default view.

The Tourist – Movie Trailer

This is how a trailer should be made – they show just enough of the movie to make a person ask more questions. The Tourist is a remake of a French film Anthony Zimmer that was made in 2005 this time the film is in English and was directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck. The two leading roles are starred by Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp, after all the fuss was made about the choice to star them together it is clear it was the right thing to do. They seem to work well together and both with a darker sense of humour, both have also learned how to use their looks to their best advantage in whichever role they play. What ever people have to say about Angelina can argue that she does not suit this role and Johnny is perfect for his.

Frank Taylor (played by Johnny Depp) has a broken heart, he leaves America and visits Italy to try and recover. On his journey he meets Elise Ward (played by Angelina Jolie) an extraordinary woman but all is not what it seems. Elise is actually using Frank to misdirect all the people after former lover Alexander Pearce who is a criminal wanted all over the world by law enforcement and gangsters alike.  Frank finds himself the target of very dangerous men with Elise.

The Tourist – Official Trailer (2010)

The Tourist looks like a thrilling film about danger and intrigue with even some romance. It will be released on 10 December 2010.

South Korea warns North Korea

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak warned North Korea on Monday. President Lee Myung-bak said that North Korea will face severe consequences if it "commists any additional provocations against the South"

He said "we will make sure that it pays a dear price". The warning came as South Korea is deploying more long-range and artillery rockets on Yeonpyeong just a few kilometers away from the border which North Korea does not recognise officially.

The naval drills between the US and South Korea were postponed until a later date because of "bad weather"
