Michael Jackson ‘saves Neverland’

Pop star Michael Jackson has refinanced his Neverland ranch to save it from being auctioned off, his lawyer says. Mr. Jackson had been told that if he failed to pay $25m (£12.5m) he owed on the sprawling California property, it would be auctioned next week.

L Londell McMillan said the singer had now worked out a “confidential” agreement with an investment group which meant he would keep the property. “Neverland and MJ are fine,” Mr. McMillan said.

Fine, Neverland is fine and Michael Jackson is fine but nobody asks us if we are fine! No further comments!

Iraqi archbishop dead

Muslim nations and citizens all around the world have often claimed the lack of tolerance towards Islam and is so weird when in most of these countries to be a Christian is simple illegal and it can lead to a vicious punishment including the death penalty in some areas of Pakistan for example.

 

So what can you say for the body of Paulos Faraj Rahho, the Chaldean Catholic archbishop of Mosul, was found in a shallow grave close to the city. And he is not the first. Another priest a few months ago was killed in Turkey, so much for the religious tolerance.

Iraq has been the one Muslim country where there was a Christian minority and they were able to practice their faith but you can see Iran’s and its ayatollah’s reaching there as well and the one who paid it was the Archbishop Rahho was kidnapped not long after he left mass in Mosul, in northern Iraq, on 29 February. This minority however was the first to abandon Iraq predicting a very dark if not a very dark ages’ future.

Air quality standards

The Environmental Protection Agency in the US is tightening air quality standards in an effort to help improve public health. It is lowering the amount of smog-forming ground-level ozone permitted in the atmosphere for the first time in more than 10 years. The EPA says the change could save 4,000 lives each year.

 

However, scientists and health campaigners say the changes have not gone far enough. Unlike stratospheric ozone, which forms a protective layer high above Earth’s surface, ground-level ozone can harm people’s lungs and aggravate conditions such as asthma, as well as increase susceptibility to respiratory infections.

One last question, is Los Angeles closing down with Tokyo to follow?

Hillary apologizes for Clinton

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton did something that she almost never does, she apologized. Her biggest apology came in response to a question about comments by her husband, Bill Clinton, after the South Carolina primary, which Obama won handily. Bill Clinton said Jesse Jackson also won South Carolina when he ran for president in 1984 and 1988, a comment many viewed as belittling Obama’s success.

Earlier Hillary Clinton supporter and fundraiser Geraldine Ferraro gave up her honorary position with Clinton’s campaign after she said in an interview last week that Obama would not have made it this far if he were white. Of Ferraro’s comment, Hillary Clinton told her audience: “I certainly do repudiate it and I regret deeply that it was said. Obviously she doesn’t speak for the campaign, she doesn’t speak for any of my positions, and she has resigned from being a member of my very large finance committee.”

And the result is when you have friends like that what do you need the enemies for!!!
