DUBLIN — Ireland became the first country Saturday to legalize same-Ireland Votes yess to gay marriage, the first nation in the world to do sosex marriage by national referendum, a result that highlights the dramatic pace at which this traditionally conservative Catholic nation has changed in recent times.

Just 22 years after decriminalizing homosexuality, 62.1% of voters approved the measure changing the nation's constitution to allow gay marriage, according to official results by Ireland's referendum commission. National turnout in Friday's poll was 60.5% of 3.2 million eligible voters.

"With today's vote we have disclosed who we are: a generous, compassionate, bold and joyful people," Prime Minister Enda Kenny said, welcoming the outcome Saturday, according to the Associated Press.

South Sudan president warns sanctions will worsen war

Juba (AFP) - South Sudan President Salva Kiir has warned that proposed Salva Kiirinternational sanctions will only worsen the civil war ravaging his country.

Repeated threats of sanctions by the UN Security Council, as well as the African Union and regional bloc IGAD, have been made amid fierce international criticism of Kiir and his arch-rival, rebel chief Riek Machar, for failing to end a 17-month war that has seen accusations of gross human rights abuses.

"At this time, discussion of sanctions is unproductive," the statement from the office of the president read, describing South Sudan as the "embers" of a fire that could flare up at any time.

IS suicide bomber attacks Saudi Shiite mosque, killing 21

Riyadh (AFP) - An Islamic State group suicide bomber attacked a Shiite IS attacks a mosque in Saudi Arabia, the first of its kind and a game changer for the Muslim worldmosque in Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia, killing 21 people and wounding 81 in an assault that threatens to fan sectarian tensions.

The bomber struck during the main weekly prayers in Eastern Province, where assailants linked to the Sunni extremist IS killed seven members of the minority Shiite community in November.

The interior ministry said a suicide bomber detonated a bomb at the mosque in the Shiite-majority city of Qatif, the official SPA news agency reported.

"An individual detonated a bomb he was wearing under his clothes during Friday prayers at Ali Ibn Abi Taleb mosque... in Qatif," the ministry spokesman said in a statement.

The health ministry was quoted by SPA as saying that 21 people were killed and 81 wounded, including 12 in critical condition.

IS said it was behind the attack, the first time the group has officially claimed an attack in Saudi Arabia, and vowed "dark days ahead"

for Shiites, whom the group consider to be heretics, until militants "chase them from the Arabian Peninsula".

'White Helmets' bring civilian aid to Syria's conflict

Turkey (CNN)In the last five years, life expectancy has dropped by White Helmet run to help the children in Syrianearly 20 years in Syria. It is an astonishing figure.

And the reason is not because of deadly infectious diseases or lack of clean water, although those are problems there as well.

Instead, it has to do primarily with rusty old barrels that are packed with explosives and hurtled out of helicopters onto large neighborhoods.

These barrels often contain nails, wire, glass and anything else that can brutally maim and destroy a human body.

The images are awful to imagine, and even worse to see. According to the Syrian Civil Defense, barrel bombs, as they are called, are now the greatest killer of civilians in many parts of Syria.

Every time one of these barrels strikes, it is the seismological equivalent of a 7.6 magnitude earthquake, and it happens around 50 times a day.

While I spoke to James Le Mesurier in Southern Turkey last night, he received word that three more barrel bombs had fallen in just the past few hours.

He also told me that when this happens, there is no one for the average citizen to call. "You can't dial 911.

You can't dial the fire service. You can't call the local police department. They don't exist."

Josh Duggar on child molestation report: 'I acted inexcusably'

(CNN)Reality TV star Josh Duggar issued an apology Thursday after "I acted inexcusably."reports surfaced that he allegedly molested girls as a teenager, saying: "I acted inexcusably." Duggar, 27, is the oldest of the children who appear on TLC's hit show "19 Kids and Counting."

The Duggars are known for being devout Christians who don't believe in practicing birth control and whose children follow strict courtship rules.

TLC pulled all episodes of the show currently set to air, according to Shannon Llanes, a spokeswoman for the network. The network had already replaced several scheduled repeats of "19 Kids and Counting" with "The Little People."

"Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret.

I hurt others, including my family and close friends," Josh Duggar said in a post on Facebook.

The violence is thought to be drug-related and officials have said that at least one police officer was killed. The authorities have been fighting a bloody war with the area's most powerful drug cartel, Jalisco New Generation, for years.

He told reporters that the gunfight had lasted for about three hours and that a number of weapons had been recovered from the scene, including more than 30 rifles.

The gunbattle began when the police and security forces were checking reports of an "invasion" of the 112-hectare (277 acres) ranch by a group of armed men.

Gap between rich and poor 'keeps growing'

The gap between the rich and the poor keeps widening, the Organisation The Poor keeps more Poor and the Rich keeps getting more richfor Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) says.

In its 34 member states, the richest 10% of the population earn 9.6 times the income of the poorest 10%.

The OECD warns that such inequality is a threat to economic growth.

Urban Food Forests Make Fruit Free For The Picking

To discover the new frontier of urban farming, you'll have to look up — Building a urban garden of fruit tree is simply brilliantand look sharp — for hanging fruit.

Urban orchards are dropping everything from apples to persimmons to avocados on Seattle, Bloomington, Ind., Boston, Toronto, San Francisco, Los Angeles and other North American cities. Groups like the Portland Fruit Tree Project advocate for public access to existing fruit trees so that people can glean crops that would otherwise go uneaten — an idea some are calling radical. Other groups are more interested in planting new groves of fruit trees on previously fallow city land.

Fruit trees produce food, but also provide shade, keep greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere, improve water quality and may even deter crime. Advocates say they also have a longer lasting impact on communities than vegetable beds.

"When you plant lettuce, you produce food for today, which is great, but when you plant a tree, you're feeding people tomorrow," says Nina Beth Cardin, director of the Baltimore Orchard Project, a program of the Baltimore non-profit Civic Works. The orchard project has planted thousands of apple, serviceberry, pawpaw, fig and pear trees on public and private land around Baltimore.

Obama Admin: NSA Spying Will Begin Shutting Down This Week

The Patriot Act provisions that have allowed the National Security Agency "After May 22, 2015, the National Security Agency will need to begin taking steps to wind down the bulk telephone metadata program in anticipation of a possible sunset in order to ensure that it does not engage in any unauthorized collection or use of the metadata," the memo vacuum up Americans' phone records officially expire on June 1.

A Bionic Approach to Prosthetics Controlled by Thought

Engineers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab have a robotic arm that has 26 joints, can curl up to 45 pounds and is controlled with a person’s mind just like a regular arm.developed a next-generation prosthetic: a robotic arm that has 26 joints, can curl up to 45 pounds and is controlled with a person’s mind just like a regular arm.

Researchers think the arm could help people like Les Baugh, who lost both arms at the shoulder after an electrical accident as a teenager.

Now 59, Mr. Baugh recently underwent surgery at Johns Hopkins to remap the remaining nerves from his missing arms, allowing brain signals to be sent to the prosthetic.

Mr. Baugh’s custom socket can pick up brain signals to control the arms, known as Modular Prosthetic Limbs, or M.P.L., just by thinking about the movements.

Mike McLoughlin, the chief engineer of research and exploratory development at the lab, said that as the remapped nerves grew deeper, it was possible that Mr. Baugh

would feel some sensation in his prostheses. Each arm has over 100 sensors, and other amputees who have had the same surgery reported being able to feel texture through the M.P.L.

Patients of varying disabilities have tested the arm in the lab and helped push the design forward.

Before there was George, there was Sid.George Stephanopoulos is, of course, the ABC news anchor whose $75,000 in donations to the Clinton foundation have reminded the world of his longtime ties to Bill Clinton, for whom he worked from 1991 to 1997.

But before Stephanopoulos had entered the picture, another journalist with an activist history, Sidney Blumenthal, had already established himself as an admirer of Bill Clinton and as a confidant of both the future president and his wife, Hillary.

That relationship, begun in the 1980s, would last for decades and continues to make news today.

Ga. school director fired after racial graduation comment

Racism is a Learned Behavior, supported by the environment

During last Friday's graduation celebration, Gordeuk accidentally dismissed attendees before the school valedictorian could give a speech.


The Environment is the

"Home, Neighborhood, School, City, Job, Recreation Center, Church, Store or Restaurant".

The Teachers of Racism are the

Parent, Brother, Sister, Father, Uncle, Aunt, Neighbor, Friend, Colleague, Priest, Preacher, School Teacher.

Racist Behavior and Racism

as a human foundation,

are human behaviors that yield flawed and hurtful human interactions with those who are the subjects of

racist acts and actions and

racism as a collective environmental accepted disposition.

One that is a racist, is one that has been nurtured by the environment to the extent that when the racist leaves that environment of racism, the racist is often incapable of changing the racist behavior because of the deep degree to which the racist behavior have been infused.

When the racist environment is visited by those from the outside,

the racism of the environment will not change, and when the video records the standard behavior of the racist environment,

denial of racism is not possible.




Pope calls Palestinian leader "angel of peace" during visit

A Slap in the face of Israel's Netanyahu

Pope calls Palestinian leader "angel of peace" during visitHow can words infiltrate a soul to the extent that one would feel a sense of anger?  Ask Israel's Netanyahu how he feels after the Pope spoke these words.

" "Pope Francis praised Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as an "angel of peace" "

For 40 plus years, Palestine and Israel has been in battle over a plot of land with each nation's leaders... falling into the mal human behavior that equal arrogance and childish behavior rather than taking the disposition of an intellect that values a life and peace more than a perception of strength or weakness.

The results have been lost lives, destroyed property and the infusion of anger in the hearts of the children on both sides that will lead to another generation of fighting.




Maryland Chooses Jail Over Schools for Baltimore Youths

The Epitome of the example of Wrong Leadership

Bmore leaders choose a jail over a school when the choice was made

Baltimore..., Police Brutality and the wrongful death of a young man that lead to a riot that was viewed live by the entire world...,

which provided the in house and behind the door view of an inside look at an American black neighborhood with all it's flawed building structures and frustrated black citizens whom have been ignored by the American Dream and beaten into acquiescing to a life style that they feel that this Baltimore Government supports.

The decision to spend money in building a jail and not spending that same money on a school,

validates the perceptions of those blacks in the debilitated neighborhoods and the only way that we can fix this perception is by removing any leader that would choose a jail over a school.




Losing Faith: A Religious Leader On America's Disillusionment With Church

Education & Science are the

Enemy of Theology Worshipers

Gary Hall

The Un-Educated Mind is the easiest mind to mold and influence, and the number of the illiterate on earth prior to the life of Jesus,

was at a 95% rate, thus, 95% of all humans were easily convinced that the things written in a bible, were in fact


Today, access to validate-able information to the masses provides the level of education to the individual, whom would question the facts of any bible... that attempts to convince today's humans that this earth is only 10 thousands years old.

Science has proven that this earth has been around billions of years longer than what the King James bible of suggests, and Science has proven that man has been on earth millions of years before

Adam & Eve

as suggested by the King James bible.

Not to mention the many flawed examples in those who lead all religious affiliations as positive and honest examples of the theology that they represent.





Asian-American groups accuse Harvard of racial bias in admissions

NFL suspends Brady 4 games; Pats lose picks

Brady and the New England Patriots are Cheaters...

Tom Brady

In American Justice, there is a thing called the "3 Strikes Rule",

where, when an individual is convicted of a 3rd crime,
he/she will be severely punished with extensively long jail sentencing.

For Brady and the Patriots,

this instance of cheating is in fact, the 3rd infraction of NFL Rules.

Although none of the Patriots will go to jail,

the sentence equals the cheating and the

3rd instances.

I personally believe that Tom Brady rates a full season suspension because with the history of spy gate alone, that should have been more than enough past history with Brady and the Patriots to cause him to really consider any possible notion of cheating, but,

he did it anyway, and for that,

1 full year suspension is what ought to be levied.

ask that your brother be arrested and charged with war crimes.

Maybe then,

you will get acknowledgement of your differentiation to a screw up and your willingness to be the good one.




Washington man shot after pointing phone like a gun: police

Justifying the shooting of a man that
 "points a cell phone" at a cop

When a Police Chief, stands in front of a microphone and justifies the Washington man shot after pointing phone like a gun: police shooting of a man because he pointed a cell phone at his officers....

this is the exact disposition that represent the

"Gang Mentality of a Police Department"

that lay the foundation of the

"Us against Them".

As ridiculous as this defense of shooting a man pointing a cell phone at a cop is,

what is equaling as ridiculous is,

"They Are Serious"!!!!!

Israel's West Bank housing policy by numbers

What is Fair?  Is are the effects of decades and centuries of unfairness?

Nations and the Rich

have abused the poor from the beginning and today,

Israel and Palestine decades of argumentsthe abuses of the poor are starting to turn the poor into radicals who are taking out their frustrations on communities around the world.

It is the many cesspools of poor communities around the world that is the breeding grounds for those who are easily convinced to carry out horrid acts of violence against their own communities.

Fair Treatment of all,

has never been the case in human history,

even in the best of circumstances, and we are seeing the ignored poor living conditions created by governments around the world,

become the areas that ensures at least 1 violent attacker turn on their own nation.

What is Fair?

It is a learned human trait,

It’s not good

nor is it bad.



becomes an ill

if a person’s racist opinion

affects another human being






We all

learn a degree of racism

from our parents


our skin color

does not matter.




in my opinion,

a person

who acts out in public,

in a manner that can be construed as


by the individual

that the act

was directed to,

does so

because they feel that their

act or action

is condoned

by others.


Note that

a white racist

never march down

the middle of an area

of the country that is

predominantly black,

say Philadelphia.



Reason being,

a conscious act or action

with known consequences,

will 99.9% of the time,

control the act itself,


if there were severe consequences

for any racist act,

people would opt to keep

their racist acts

within the confines

of their safe environment,

their homes.


The realities for people

who use

a racist act or action

generally feel a sense that

they are satisfying

the overall good for people of

his or her ilk.



if all races felt comfortable

with acting out their

racist consciousness.



condoned racist act

by any race

is a condoned racist act

against any & all U.S. citizens’ rights

of peace of mind.


The law

ought to specifically communicate

that racism

is based on the victims perspective

of a specific act or action,


if a person concludes

that a racist act

had been committed against one’s person,

the identified person

should be prosecuted with

extreme prejudice,,,,


to create a conscious awareness

to any and all Americans

that racist acts

will be dealt with

extremely severally.

"No officer injured Mr. Gray, caused harm to Mr. Gray, and they are truly saddened by his death,"

Freddie Gray death ruled homicide; officers charged 5/1/2015


Slowly, America Shifts it's foundational behavior towards
"Equal Consideration"


400 Years of One Race Rule
has molded America as a
"Racist & Hypocritical Nation"
and the facts of America's History more than support this as being a case.


The World's Nations, collectively, have anointed America as being lead by men of arrogance, and thus, America itself is dubbed an
Arrogant Nation,
validated by an illegal invasion of Iraq that yielded

not one
formal investigation of those who twisted the truth, yet,
America chastises nations around the world for any inhuman treatment of it's citizens while ignoring the blatant racist behavior of every aspect of
America's own treatment of
"non white citizens".

that blacks have found so elusive when a black life is lost

'So Much Money': Baltimore Teen in

Facts speaks volumes when attempting to convey a message.


Not just the System of Justice... unfairly victimize the citizen, so does those who sit in the seats of power anointed the power to wield the power of the
Justice System Industry.


Conscious and Sub Conscious
decisions to assign bail amounts to those that a judge believe... rate exceptionally high bail
at a mount consciously known to the judge as being unproducable, ensures that the citizen is subjected to the harsh jail system...
as a conscientious cruelty directed 9 times out of 10
at the Black & Hispanic Citizen.


Conscientious Awareness of Iniquitous Treatment


The Cop on the street consciously abuse minorities psychologically, emotionally, and physiologically because he/she can, without out consequences of his actions.


The District Attorney consciously manipulate minorities into flawed plea bargains because he/she knows that the justice system is stacked against the minority, who thereby is forced to acquiesce to a deal that equates to

Differences in the treatment of

Black Woman & White Woman by Police


The Perceptions of the Fragile White Woman and
the Angry Black Woman
directly affect the manner in which they are treated by both,
White Police Officers and Black Police Officers.


Human Nature
ensures that no two human beings will ever be the same, and
Human Nature
has ensured that
every Human Being is equally as capable of
giving and accepting Love
as well as, equally as capable of
initiating acts of evilness and hate.


Police Perception of Woman based on Race


Skin Color does factor
into what a
Police Officer's Perception of Woman is,
and no human being in America can deny this as being a fact,
in that, for the past 400 years, skin color has been the determining factor
in which how an American is treated at all levels of American Society.


To this day, the facts are real and the facts speak for themselves
with the two articles display to the left and to the right,
with the results of the interactions with police officers
by two different race woman, and the results of their interactions
leaves one with a black eye and the other
casually hand cuffed... even after she has intentionally
refused to obey and conform to the police officer's commands.


The many instances of black men being killed by police officers
over the past year has been met with the response of
"by choosing not to immediately comply with a police officer's commands,

any subsequent actions that would lead to the physical damaging of an individual or

even death..., is the fault of the individual

who did not "immediately" comply

with a police officer's command ".

Eastern Conference Finals


Game 2  Cleveland  94  @    Atlanta  82


With Irving on bench, James points way for Cavaliers

The Cavs were missing a starting point guard Friday and all that meant was his replacement would play the position ... better.

ATLANTA — With a smothering performance that was Magic Johnson-flavored, LeBron James made his teammates better, especially one who didn't suit up. After what LeBron just unleashed on the Hawks, Kyrie Irving can afford to rest up the next game and perhaps the one after that. But not a fourth straight game, because that would be the start of the NBA Finals (do the math).

The Cavs were missing a starting point guard Friday and all that meant was his replacement would play the position ... better. Yes, imagine if you're the Hawks, and Irving spends the day getting a second opinion on his aching knee by the famous Dr. James Andrews, and is a late scratch for Game 2.
