China Earthquake Today 2013 - 6.6 Sichuan Aftershocks Continue


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A strong China earthquake aftershock today 2013 hascontinued to rock the country after the 6.6 magnitude quake yesterday. The China earthquake today April 20, 2013 has struck the country after the deadly quake Friday.

Officials tells news that Western Sichuan aftershocks continue to impact China Saturday. Moreover, other non related quakes on the Russia China border are striking as well.

USGS reports to news that 156 people died and more than five thousand remain injured from Friday’s quake, the worse to strike the country since the 2008 Lushan county quake. The quake was initially reported by officials as 7.0 and by the USGS as 6.9. That quake was thereafter reassessed down to a 6.6

Officials report no change in the quake’s depth reading, however. The nominal 8 mile depth enabled the quake to be felt across the region.

One user on the Weibo Twitter like service, Liu Xi, wrote last night “It was just like May 12. All the home decorations fell at once, and the old house cracked.” Another person wrote “It’s too dangerous. Even the aftershocks are scary.”

Government representatives report most of the deaths in the Lushan area. But USGS indicates to news at least four quakes striking China since the initial surge, all in excess of 5.1 magnitude. Elsewhere around the globe, a 5.0 magnitude quake struck Uganda over night, a strong quake came to the BandaSea, and more activity erupted in Papua New Guinea.

Medieval Knight Found Under Edinburgh Parking Lot

Medieval Knight Found Under Edinburgh Parking Lot


LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – A medieval knight has been found underneath a Edinburgh parking lot. Additionally, the medieval knight has been found just weeks after the remains of Richard III were discovered under a Leicester parking lot.

Last month, Dr Jo Appleby, an osteo-archaeologist from the university’s School of Archaeology and Ancient History, told news that the skeleton remains of Richard II were found under a city parking lot in Leicaster. The bones had traceable DNA on them. So researchers found a 7th-generation descendant of Richard’s sister to help in DNA matching.

Now archeologist Ross Murray of the University of Edinburgh has found the remains of a medieval knight under a parking lot as well. The remains were found when digging began for the construction of the new Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation.

Murray tells news that he was shocked by the discovery. BBC reports the researchers already knew that the dig location was the site of an “18th Century Old High School, the 16th Century Royal High School and the 13th Century Blackfriars Monastery.”

But when Headland Archaeology. found a grave stone, a cross, skeleton remains and more, they were shocked. “This find has the potential to be one of the most significant and exciting archaeological discoveries in the city for many years” said Richard Lewis, the Edinburgh Council culture convener, in a news statement this week.

ECCI director Andy Kerr told the Daily Mail news that “We always knew that the building retrofit might uncover historical artefacts, given the site’s history – but this knight is an extraordinary and exciting find.” Kerr added “We want our new building to play a key role in shaping Scotland’s future, as these historical buildings on this site did in their time.”

600-Year-Old Coin Found in Kenyan Island of Manda

 


ST LOUIS (LALATE) – A 600-year-old coin has been found in the Kenyan Island of Manda. The coin is believed to be from the Ming Dynasty, officials tell news.

In a news briefing this week, the Field Museum and the University of Illinois at Chicago reported that the coin carries a historic significance. First, the coin is believed to been issued by China’s Emperor Yongle Second, the coin is believed to have been worn on a belt. Third, it is one of the most convincing pieces of evidence of trade between China and east Africa at the time, officials tell news.

In a news statement, officials explained that Emperor Yongle had sent Admiral Zheng He to explore Kenya. “Zheng He was, in many ways, the Christopher Columbus of China,” Chapurukha M. Kusimba, the museum’s curator of African Anthropology, said Wednesday. “It’s wonderful to have a coin that may ultimately prove he came to Kenya.”

 

The coin supports evidence of trade between China and East Africa, especially in the decades after AD 1403-1425. Chapurukha Kusimba of the museum and Sloan Williams of the University of Illinois-Chicago headed the expedition. The effort was aided by scientists from Kenya, Pennsylvania and Ohio. The coin features copper and silver and would have been worn from a non ceremonial belt.

Dead Pigs in River Shock China Officials

Dead Pigs in River Shock China Officials


ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Dead pigs in China are shocking health officials. More than one thousand dead pigs in a local river have been pulled by Shanghai officials. They fear the number could still rise. The cause is still under investigation.

Officials report that the Huangpu River remains a major source of drinkingwater for the region. But now with over a thousand dead pigs floating in that Shanghai river, health officials are calling for immediate action. And yet, government officials are under pressure after being accused of a slow response to the regional trouble.

The upper Songjiang section of the Huangpu River is filled with dead pigs. Official report that 1200 were recovered by Saturday. Then on Sunday, three hundred more dead pigs were pulled. Locals are now calling for tests for E. coli in the water supply. But officials have not been cooperative.

The Shanghai Agriculture Committee tells news that the water supply remains health. But potential biohazards are being tested, Xu Rong, head of Songjiang district’s environment department, told news. “We have to act quickly to remove them all for fear of causing water pollution,” said Rong. “Is this waterstill drinkable after dead pigs were found floating in it?” Liu Wanqing, 60, told the region’s government run newspaper.

The quake, initially reported as a magnitude 6.2 off the coast, was centered 33 km (20 miles) northwest of La Union, on the border between Guerrero and Michoacan states, close to the Pacific coast.

The quake was felt in Mexico City, 325 km (200 miles) away, where buildings shook and residents briefly ran outdoors but came back in shortly after the shaking stopped, a Reuters witness said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damages.

Ottawa’s Muslims split over acknowledging only US

SOON after a deranged man killed 20 children and six adults at a school in Newtown, Connecticut, last year, a Muslim imam and the president of a Muslim organization in Ottawa met US Ambassador David Jacobson to express their regrets. It’s noble to embrace others, especially in their time of grief.

Regretfully, no such condolence calls were made to other victims of terror. In India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Egypt, Iraq, the West Bank and Gaza and some other places thousands of innocent people have been killed, injured or displaced by outside powers or by terrorists. There’s no evidence of similar visits to diplomats from these countries to express sympathy.  READ MORE……. http://www.saudigazette.com.sa/index.cfm?method=home.regcon&contentid=20130419162028

INNOCENT LOSE OF LIVES IN BOSTON KNOWN AS “BOSTON DRAMA” IN SAUDI GAZETTE

Boston drama gone global

HARD TALK         Hussein Shobokshi

The entire world, well almost the entire world, was utterly glued to their television sets following the news stories on the bombings in the city of Boston during its famous marathon run. America amazingly still manages to dominate the “headline story”!

I followed the tragic story like everyone else, saddened by the fatal events, particularly because it happened in a city that I admire and in a country that I love.

{Note:What is “silly” is calling the Boston tragedy “as exciting as watching a Hollywood thriller.”}
There were some very important and significant points to be taken from what happened.  The media was this time clearly very careful in not jumping to conclusions and blaming the usual suspects (Al Qaeda and other extremists groups), with the exception, of course, of the very irresponsible and biased reporting of Fox News and the New York Post which were quick to accuse a “Saudi suspect” in a silly and completely irresponsible manner that will forever be highlighted as a case of irresponsible journalism.

Boston police, with the Federal support, provided the world with a practical and most dramatic demonstration of “crisis management” in full motion.  It was as exciting as watching a Hollywood thriller; the big difference however is that this one is very much the real thing.

The entire city of Boston went into full gear; its police, civil defense and medical facilities were all united to treat the victims of the bombings and find the suspects.  All residents, educational institutions and commercial establishments were in complete cooperation.  The city was on a standstill for 48 hours to totally focus on getting the suspects arrested as soon as possible.

The media was playing “catch-up”, trying to chase clues and stories.  The police were extremely cautious and careful in releasing information for fear of blowing up the leads they were pursuing.  Social media was dramatically effective in playing a big role in the story.  Clues and photos were obtained from the pages of Facebook and the accounts of Twitter without forgetting the power of data spread by Blackberry’s and Whatsapp’s.
We do live in a very different world. What happened in Boston, and which the world was clearly a great part of, tells us that there will no longer be an “isolated incident” anymore; all local events will become global ones. The power to “share” and participate is truly becoming a reality.

This will have a great impact on technologies, laws and media in the very near future. Privacy is history and sovereignty is passé.

The future is bringing on new challenges that will require a completely new set of playing rules.  The “power” to keep the world glued to their television sets and smartphones for over 48 hours following a local story is nothing short of incredible.

    WORLD’S OLDEST MAN LIVE TO BE 142 YEARS OLD?

  • Who is the world’s oldest man?

    Last updated: Sunday, April 21, 2013 3:49 PM

     

     

    JEDDAH — In olden days people did not keep track of the children’s birth dates. The birth of their children was normally associated to a natural calamity, bumper harvest, visit of a close or distant relative for the first or last time, death of a family member or a leader, seasons, among others.

    So if people back then did not have any formal birth records then how do we determine who is the oldest person to have lived on this earth? It may not be possible to determine the oldest person alive or have lived world-wise, but it is surely possible country-wise as each country claims to have/had the oldest person — dead or alive?

    According to a local Arabic daily, Japan recently celebrated the birthday of a Japanese who is believed to be the oldest man alive. The Japanese prime minister has even offered his congratulations to the country’s senior most citizen who left the hospital recently in good condition.

    The 116-year-old Japanese was born reportedly born on April 19, 1897. He has five sons, 14 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and 14 great great grandchildren. He worked at a local post office for 38 years after which he retired and worked as a farmer until he reached 90. On the other hand, the oldest man in Al-Baha reportedly died Friday at the age of 142, another Arabic daily reported.

    He is believed to have traveled 90 years ago to Ethiopia and France before settling in Italy, where he worked for more than 25 years. His family thought he had died but a decades later but he returned 70 years ago. The man, who spoke four languages, had met with King Abdulaziz in Taif who given him SR400 and a Bisht. — SG

     OH MY STARS………….

    NO WAY!

    NO WAY!

    BY MAUREEN DOWD THE graying man flashing fury in the Rose Garden on behalf of the New- town families, the griev- ing man wiping away tears after speaking at the Boston memorial service, is not the same man who glided into office four years ago. President Obama has watched the blood-dimmed tide drown- ing the ceremony of innocence, as Yeats wrote, and he has learned how to emotionally connect with Americans in searing moments, as he did from the White House late Friday night after the second bombing suspect was apprehended in Boston.

    Unfortunately, he still has not learned how to govern.

    WHAT…..WHAT………..OBAMA DON’T KNOW HOW TO WORK THE SYSTEM?(EMPHASIS MINE)

    How is it that the president won the argument on gun safety with the public and lost the vote in the Senate? It’s because he doesn’t know how to work the system. And it’s clear now that he doesn’t want to learn, or to even hire some clever people who can tell him how to do it or do it for him.

    It’s unbelievable that with 90 percent of Americans on his side, he could get only 54 votes in the Senate. It was a glaring example of his weakness in using leverage to get what he wants. No one on Capitol Hill is scared of him.

    Even House Republicans who had no intention of voting for the gun bill marveled privately that the president could not muster 60 votes in a Senate that his party controls.

    President Obama thinks he can use emotion to bring pressure on Congress. But that’s not how adults with power respond to things. He chooses not to get down in the weeds and pretend he values the stroking and other little things that matter to lawmakers.

    After the Newtown massacre, he and his aides hashed it out and decided he would look cold and unsympathetic if he didn’t push for some new regulations. To thunderous applause at the State of the Union, the president said, “The families of Newtown deserve a vote.” Then, as usual, he took his foot off the gas, lost momentum and confided his pessimism to journalists.

    The White House had a defeatist mantra: This is tough. We need to do it. But we’re probably going to lose.

    When you go into a fight saying you’re probably going to lose, you’re probably going to lose.

    The president once more delegated to the vice president.
    Couldn’t he have come to the Hill himself to lobby with the families and Joe Biden?
    The White House should have created a war room full of charts with the names of pols they had to capture, like they had in “The American President.” Soaring speeches have their place, but this was about blocking and tackling.

    Instead of the pit-bull legislative aides in Aaron Sorkin’s movie, Obama has Miguel Rodriguez, an arm-twister so genteel that The Washington Post’s Philip Rucker wrote recently that no one in Congress even knows who he is.

    The president was oblivious to red-state Democrats facing tough elections. Bring the Alaskan Democrat Mark Begich to the White House residence, hand him a drink, and say, “How can we make this a bill you can vote for and defend?”Sometimes you must leave the high road and fetch your brass knuckles. Obama should have called Senator Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota over to the Oval Office and put on the squeeze: “Heidi, you’re brand new and you’re going to have a long career. You work with us, we’ll work with you. Public opinion is moving fast on this issue.

    The reason you get a six-year term is so you can have the guts to make tough votes.
    This is a totally defensible bill back home. It’s about background checks, nothing to do with access to guns. Heidi, you’re a mother.
    Think of those little kids dying in schoolrooms.”

    Obama had to persuade some Republican senators in states that he won in 2012.
    He should have gone out to Ohio, New Hampshire and Nevada and had big rallies to get the public riled up to put pressureon Rob Portman, Kelly Ayotte and Dean Heller, giving notice that they would pay a price if they spurned himTomon this.

    Coburn, the Republican senator from Oklahoma, is one of the few people on the Hill that the president actually considers a friend. Obama wrote a paean to Coburn in the new Time 100 is sue, which came out just as Coburn sabotaged his own initial effort to help the bill.

    Obama should have pressed his buddy: “Hey, Tom, just this once, why don’t you do more than just talk about making an agreement with the Democrats? You’re not running again. Do something big.”

    Couldn’t the president have given his Rose Garden speech about the “shameful” actions in Washington before the vote rather than after?
    There were ways to get to 60 votes. The White House just had to scratch it out with a real strategy and a never-let-go attitude.

    Obama hates selling. He thinks people should just accept the right thing to do. But as Joe Manchin, the West Virginia Democrat, noted, senators have their own tough sell ing job to do back home. “In the end you can really believe in some thing,” he told The Times’s Jennifer Steinhauer, “but you have to go sell it.”

    The president said the New town families deserved a vote. But he was setting his sights too low.

    They deserved a law. — The New York Times rom the How is it that the president won the argument on gun safety with the public and lost the vote in the Senate? It’s because he doesn’t know how to work the system. And it’s clear now that he doesn’t want to learn, or to even hire some clever people who can tell him how to do it or do it for him.
