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"

Kill the boer song is illegal

Judge Leon Halgryn ruled that the singing of the “kill the boer” song is illegal. Just as illegal as saying other words that could offend certain races, people or groups, he used an example.

The ANCYL league will now be singing it illegally if they do continue singing the kill the boer song. Thousands of farmers and boers have been murdered since 1994 and for the ruling party of the country to go to court to keep on singing a song about murdering a minority in the country says a lot about those that rule or govern South Africa.

North Korea: There is war

North Korea said there is a state of war in the Korean peninsula. This is according to South Korean media and the Korean National Peace Committee.

North Korea or specifically those that issued the statement, whether this is an official statement or not we cant say but they did say that the US and South Korea is using the military drills as front to invade North Korea.

If the Korean National Peace Committee have the authority to speak on behalf of North Korea then there is war.

US Bill S 510 passes

In the United States many things are illegal and starting to be illegal. You cant take a photograph because then you are profiled, you cant disagree with government then you are a terrorist, you cant protect your head when police beat you with battons because then you are resisting arrest. Now to put the cherry on the cake of the police state S510 passes.

There is a lot of controversy and people argue on what can or cant be done under this bill but most people agree that you cant grow your own fruit or vegetable garden in your own backyard.

S 510 has officiallly passed.

Who voted for the bill?

Wikileaks – Top leaked countries in cables release (large image)

With only 220 files released of more than 250 000 a lot is still to be revealed. Thus far there was only one file about South Africa and hopefully there will be more history bits that no one has ever seen.

However, the top countries are Iraq, Turkey, Iran, Israel, China, Afghanistan.

Seeing that China is the 5th most filed country we can expect some diplomatic chaos, the most expected was off course Iraq.

World's cruelest mom on Dr Phil

This boy was bad, so bad his mother throws hot chilli sauce in his mouth and makes him take a cold shower. Surprisingly she did not try to waterboard him or tortured him with electricity.

This video is part of a Dr Phil show where the woman confessed that she is in fact the world’s worst mother.
