Tripoli: what IS going on?
It's no longer a surprise that a media war is being waged against Gaddafi and Libya. In March, all news were breaking and highly contradictive towards each other. A month passed until Libyans finally learned to disprove the lies, but while the news themselves grew relatively neutral, a new wave of misinformation was being prepared.
It arose in global media approximately on 15th of August, when a Saudi Arabia newspaper Asharq Alawsat told that Gaddafi is allegedly ill and ready to leave the country. Saudis, mortal enemies of Muammar Gaddafi, were, of course, such a reliable source, that all other papers followed.
In the same time news channels were choking with new victories of the insurgency. It looked like it took rebels a couple of hours to occupy a city, making poor Moussa Ibrahim steam from his ears, proving to journalists that it is virtually impossible. All this show was a careful preparation for the main course the taking of Tripoli. But in spite of mercenaries parachuted

Inventor of Implantable Pacemaker
Dies at 92
By BARNABY FEDER
Published: September 28, 2011 on The New York Times
Wilson Greatbatch, a professed “humble tinkerer” who, working in his barn in 1958,
designed the first practical implantable pacemaker, a device that has preserved millions of lives,
died on Tuesday at his home in Williamsville, N.Y. He was 92.
His death was confirmed by his daughter, Anne Maciariello.
Mr. Greatbatch patented more than 325 inventions,
notably a long-life lithium battery used in a wide range of medical implants.
He created tools used in AIDS research and a solar-powered canoe,
which he took on a 160-mile voyage on the Finger Lakes in New York to celebrate his 72nd birthday.
In later years, he invested time

In questi giorni tv, radio e giornali hanno riscoperto che si avvicinava il 20° anniversario della strage di Capaci.
Tutti in questi giorni, insolitamente, si prodigano nel ricordarcelo: presunti giornalisti, artisti, e sopratutto politici.
affiancarsi all'immagine di uomini come Giovanni Falcone e Paolo Borsellino fa molto comodo,
sopratutto in un momento come quello attuale, in cui è forte il bisogno di ripulirsi dalle escrescenze
del sudiciume interiore per riciclarsi, per dirsi onesti, puliti, per dirsi impegnati....
Un teatrino che mai come quest'anno si allarga a tanti, troppi figuranti
che non hanno paura di esibire sempre la stessa maschera di falsità.
Un teatrino a tema fisso: commemorare la morte.
Ecco, è per questo che voglio scrivere qui,
perché possiamo ricordarlo tutti che oggi non si celebra la morte

Refugees With Their Most Valuable PossessionsSource: Photographs by Brian Sokol http://www.petapixel.com/2013/03/21/portraits-of-refugees-posing-with-their-most-valued-possessions/?utm_medium=referral&utm_sourceulsenewsRefugees With Their Most Valuable Possessions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks to MARX77 for the tip!
If you had to quickly flee both your home and country, what one possession would you make sure you take with you? It’s a question that reveals a lot about your life and values, and, unfortunately, is one that many people around the world actually have to answer.
NYC-based photographer Brian Sokol has been working on a project supported by the UN Refugee Agency titled “The Most Important Thing.” It consists of portraits of refugees in which the subjects pose with the one thing they couldn’t let go of when running away from home.
Sokol started the project in Sudan. More than 100,000 refugees have crossed the border between Sudan’s Blue Nile state and South Sudan’s Upper Nile state since November of 2011. Many of the refugees fled on a moment

Understanding JihadUnderstanding Jihad1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
The word "Jihad" is derived from "Jahada" and "Ijtihad"
which both are synonymous to success and striving for a good moral conduct.
It is a pure misconception that non-Muslims
carry even Muslims that Jihad is a holy war.
Holy war in Arabic transliteration goes like this "Harb Muqadassa"
and it is found nowhere in the holy Qu'ran.
Jihad has many levels.
The most important form of Jihad is the personal one.
Which means striving to make yourself a better person
and resisting the evil temptation within one's self which includes:
lying, stealing, engaging one's self in adultery and loose sexual whims.
If a student is passing an exam or a patient going through surgery
he is doing personal Jihad by striving to become better or achieve satisfactory results.
It does not mean to kill any human being be him a muslim or a non-mus

I just received a Note from Heidi informing me that they've heard word of my Warm Winter Project and that at the time of my purchases, deviantART would like to match me the amount of hoodies on their behalf!!! This means if I reach my goal of 50, I get 50 more! And if I don't, I get just as many from dA as I can myself!!!!! The awesomeness and appreciation I feel could never have enough emotes to describe!!! :iconimtoohappyplz:
With this many extras, not only will I be able to donate to a shelter in Savannah, I'll also be able to have some to carry with me while driving around Jacksonville, where the issue of poverty is much, much worse, and I'll be able to help out those who can't even be taken into a shelter that's too crowded!!
Thank you to Heidi, grieves05, and thank you EVERYONE at dA HQ!!!! :

lays upon the street broken,
torn apart and
painted in blood.
happiness does not laugh
bitter and hate filled sounds
resonate in the distance
a yellow cloud
forms among the struggling youth,
as air is robbed from juvenile lungs
bullets cut swiftly
through the rain with malicious intent,
piercing bodies—taking lives.
Defeat tastes copper-like,
trickling from their mouths
splattering the floor.

Bobby Sands Remembered (May 4, 2012)
On this the 31st anniversary of the death on hunger strike of Bobby Sands,
his friend and comrade, former IRA prisoner Colm Scullion from South Derry,
recalls first meeting Bobby while on remand in Crumlin Road Jail.
Colm had been injured in a premature explosion at the time of his arrest in October 1976
along with his fellow comrade Tom McElwee, the ninth republican to die on the hunger strike, on 8th August 1981.
Colm was later sentenced, and in the H-Blocks met up with Bobby again and there in H-3,
during some of the darkest days of the protest, they shared a cell.
Here, the quiet South Derry republican speaks about Bobby Sands’ humour,
his humanity and his concern for especially the younger prisoners
as the blanket men entered their fifth year of beatings on the protest for political status.
