1. Japan is tiring of people overstaying their visas/welcome and is coming up with an new program to help keep better track of those who do so.
2. Nigeria. In the northeast part of this backward and barbaric nation, a suicide bomber killed at least twenty and injured 48. How one gets an exact number of injured but an unknown number of killed seems odd, perhaps some were buried in debris.
"Krakow Post": Krakow, Poland. Jagiellonian University, so reported, will be adding 13 new programs, eight of which will be taught in English. This university is the oldest in Poland, established in 1364 by King Casmir III The Great, and it's one of the oldest universities in the world.
When I was in Poland, I took a class at the school, visited it's museum was in awe of it's history and beauty. IF you want a great experience, I suggest you attempt to enroll in a class or two at Jagiellonian U. Krakow is a great city and regardless of which way you travel while in country, you'll find natural beauty, historical sites, cultural enrichment, good food, relaxation..... has is all. Poland is a wonderful place in which to live and study, so, if you're so inclined to study abroad, check into a year in Poland.
"Cape Town News":
1. Shia and Sunni muslims do not get along and tension has been brewing in South Africa, at least in the Cape Town area. Seems the tension is reaching an all time high, just waiting for the explosion now, I suppose.
2. When visiting western South Africa, you may want to check the credentials of doctors before you allow one to work on you in the case of emergency. Seems six unlicensed doctors have been arrested in the area.
3. This kind of shows just how weak --- or perhaps just how racist the South African government has become. Blacks are "invading" lands and putting up shacks that are of less quality than a backyard playhouse for children (in the U.S.), and calling the land theirs. Want to guess which race of people is getting screwed most by this action????? (Hint. I've written about it several times.)
"BBC News": A group called Diversity House, wanted to establish some 'safe space' for LGBT and ethnic-minority soccer fans while in Russia. In St. Petersburg, the owner of a building they thought they had, told the Diversity House folks to clear their people out and then had the electricity to the building shut off.
Needless to say, those who run the Diversity House are crying foul, claiming that this violates the human rights of the LGBT and ethnic-minority folks. But is this really the case? You see, these groups cry for tolerance and equal rights and equality overall, but only when it benefits them. When it doesn't, they demand special consideration and treatment, claiming they deserve such special consideration and treatment but they've never said why.
When people demand equality, women, the LGBTQI folks, ethnic-minorities, all else, speaking of special treatment, like scholarships, social programs, etc., should be off the table. BUT, try to take their special treatment packages away from them in the name of equality and they'll raise hell about their human rights. I ask, what about the human rights of those not protected by bullshit laws?
"Russia Today": In southeastern France, a muslim woman shouted "Allahu Akbar" and proceeded to take a box cutter to a 60-year-old's chest and then sliced up a female clerk, neither have life-threatening injuries. The French are looking into this woman's background to see if she's any link to terrorists. --- I'd think maybe so.
(Just a question. How many instances do any of you know about where a Christian shouted "Praise God" and then proceeded to slice up people they don't know? Or run a truck though a bunch of people? Or strap a bomb to themselves and blow things up? Or take a gun to a concert of young people and shoot the hell out of all they see? ---I can't think of a single case and I go to many media outlets about the globe looking for the odd, weird, violent and sometimes the fun and good stuff.)
