Kim Jong Il led his nation through a devastating famine while frustrating the U.S. and other global powers with an on-again, off-again approach to talks on giving up nuclear arms in return for energy and other assistance. Kim was one of the last remnants of a Cold War-era that ended years earlier in most other countries.

His death was announced Monday by state television two days after he died. North Korea’s news agency reported that he had died at 8:30 a.m. Saturday after having a heart attack on a train, adding that he had been treated for cardiac and cerebrovascular diseases for a long time. He was 69.

 

House Republicans will vote down a two-month payroll tax bill approved by the Senate this weekend, saying Monday that short-term solutions create instability for the economy and push the problem of a negotiating a longer deal into next year.

“Americans are tired of short-term fixes. Democrats and Republicans agreed that a payroll tax cut needs to be extended for a full year. The House passed a bill to do just that,” said House Speaker John Boehner.

Boehner said the House will vote to disagree with the Senate-backed bill approved Saturday and take their own legislation to conference with Senate negotiators through the regular order of business.

But Senate Democrats say Saturday’s vote was expected to be the last one of the year, and they have no plans to return to Washington before the next session in January. They add that they considered the Senate bill a bipartisan compromise. It passed 89-10.

 

For 884 million people, having no access to a safe water supply is a daily reality. Every year 1.4 million children die from diarrhoeal diseases – diseases transmitted through contaminated water and poor hygiene practices. Every day more than 3,800 children die from a diarrhoeal disease; that means one child dies every 20 seconds.

Unsafe water sources that people are forced to use every day are killing thousands.

Samaritan’s Purse Canada is attacking this travesty instals BioSand Water Filters in homes throughout the developing world. These simple household water filters effectively remove up to 99 per cent of all water-borne pathogens, along with particulate matter. The result is water that is safe to drink, cook and clean with.

Samaritan’s Purse Canada has provided more than 142,000 families around with the world with safe water through the BioSand Water Filter and another 2,000 filters are installed each month, along with essential health and hygiene training. It is our goal to have installed filters in 155,000 homes, schools, and hospitals by December of 2011 giving safe water to over one million people.

How You Can Help
Canadians can Turn on the Tap to clean water for a family at an average worldwide cost of only $100, providing a family with the filter, vital health and hygiene education and filter maintenance. Donate now to Turn on the Tap

 

Oxfam’s programs address the structural causes of poverty and related injustice and work primarily through local accountable organizations, seeking to enhance their effectiveness. We aim to help people directly where local capacity is insufficient or inappropriate for Oxfam’s purposes, and to assist in the development of structures which directly benefit people facing the realities of poverty and injustice.

Oxfam believes that poverty and powerlessness are avoidable and can be eliminated by human action and political will. The right to a sustainable livelihood, and the right and capacity to participate in societies and make positive changes to people’s lives are basic human needs and rights which can be met. Oxfam believes that peace and substantial arms reduction are essential conditions for development and that inequalities can be significantly reduced both between rich and poor nations and within nations.

 

FIBP has two collections out to support the  charities listed above. The first is The Story Tellers’ Anthology, which donates all proceeds to Turn on the Tap. Each collection only costs 99 cents, and the anthology includes loads of stories, in assorted genres.

 

Christmas O’Clock is an anthology of two book and two stories, both geared for kids at Christmastime. All proceeds of Christmas O’Clock go to Oxfam to help children and families in an international effort. This collection also costs 99 cents.

Irish Slave Gangs/ Saudi Women Vote/ Nude Protests/ Gary Hoover/ Connie J Jasperson/ Alison DeLuca/ Elaine Gannon/ Anabell Martin/ J Darroll Hall/ Eileen Gormley/ S. M.

Makins/ Dean Frank Lappi/ Patty Sarro/ Fantasy Island Book Publishing/ T. Denise Robinson/ Lisa Zhang Wharton/ Thomas A. Knight/Joan Hazel

In an article that shows that greed and the need to keep the working poor down are
motives that not confined to the uber-conservative political machine in
America, The Daily Mail reported today that Irish Gangs have been luring
unemployed men throughout Britain with promises of high-paying jobs and then
forcing them into slavery; trafficking them abroad in Norway and Sweden.

 

Apparently the gangs are forcing the men to work for less than 10£ a day and kenneling
them in substandard camps. They are kept working 10 to 12 hours a day paving
driveways and other small paving jobs, leading the Swedish authorities to call
them ‘Tarmac Cowboys’. The mafia-style press-gangs coerce the men with threats
of violence against their families. Several suspicious deaths among their
captives have at last drawn the attention of Swedish authorities.

Unlimited numbers of captive workers, paid little or
nothing, fed poorly, and denied medical care and their very existence denied by
those who reap the profits – it’s a dream come true for the secret finance
committee backing the puppet congress these days in America. Dick Cheney must
be salivating in his spider-hole, trying to figure out a way to make it so.

 

 

In what can only be called a landmark decision, Reuters today reported that Saudi
Arabia will give women the right to vote. In an historic move, King Abdullah
bin Abdulaziz al-Saud announced today that “Women will be able to run as
candidates in the municipal election and will even have a right to vote.”

“This is great news,” said Wajeha al-Huwaider, a Saudi writer and women’s rights
activist. “Women’s voices will finally be heard.” She also said, “Now it
is time to remove other barriers like not allowing women to drive cars and not
being able to function, to live a normal life without male guardians.”

This is, we hope, only the beginning of equality for the
human race in the Middle East.

 

 

And now for the news from San Francisco – Bringing new meaning to hanging out on a
street-corner:

Several dozen men and at least one
woman took part in a naked protest Saturday in an area of the Castro District
neighborhood that has become known for its nude visitors. Several carried signs
that read, “Nudity is Not a Crime” and “Get Your Hate Off My
Body,” as they milled around, undeterred by the brisk weather and light
mist.

San Francisco generally allows public nudity, but a city supervisor has proposed regulating the practice. Supervisor
Scott Wiener’s proposal would require the clothing-averse to cover up in
restaurants. It would also require nudists to put a cloth or other barrier
under their bottoms if they take a seat in public.

Mitch Hightower, the organizer of the ‘nude-in’, said it was
not intended as a protest against the proposal. The goal, Hightower said, was
to promote acceptance of the human body no matter what shape or form it comes
in. “The people out here believe there is nothing indecent or offensive
about the human body,” he said.

It’s often a bad sad world, but events like this give me hope that no matter how
serious the rest of the world gets, someone will always have a cause that is
‘so much more important’.

In view of all of this important, time-consuming political
stuff, I say it’s time to pull out a good book and read yourself to happiness!
I have read and re-read some of the best books ever, and I regularly blog about
what I read on my book review blog called ‘The Best In Fantasy Blog’. You can read my reviews of many of these fine books that

Makins/ Dean Frank Lappi/ Patty Sarro/ Fantasy Island Book Publishing/ T. Denise Robinson/ Lisa Zhang Wharton/ Thomas A. Knight/ Black Numbers

True Blood seems to be causing all sorts of controversy with Season 4. Not only did HBO let Alan Ball turn the infamous shower scene from book 4, Dead To The World by author Charlaine Harris, into a scene from Narnia, but he seems intent on turning Sookie Stackhouse into a less than savoury character. Last week we saw in episode 8, “Spellbound,” Sookie’s shower turn into a snow covered field complete with a double bed for her and Eric Northman to get busy in. This was a result of a V induced hallucination. Not happy Alan Ball! Now in episode 9, “Let’s Get Out Of Here,” we find that Sookie has ingested MORE vampire blood! This time Alan Ball found it important to show a threesome between Sookie, Eric and Bill Compton, who is an ex-boyfriend. Fans are getting more than a little bit concerned about what is being inferred about her character. I wonder what episode 10 will bring?

FIBP releases its first print book: the fantastic Black Numbers by Dean Frank Lappi. If you like horror and fantasy, you’ll love this book about magic that comes from sexuality and manipulating numbers.

With only 86 days to go until the premiere of Breaking Dawn, Part 1, Twihards are starting to get a little frenzied! Not only is Breaking Dawn an international success for Stephenie Meyers, it is a boon for the franchise industry. Already you can add a countdown widget to your computer as well as calenders, Comic Con cards and the offical T Shirt. The movie comes to theaters 18th November 2011 (or 11.18.11 as the merchandise claims), so make sure you get your seats booked early!

Hurricane Irene intensified this morning in the Bahamas, reaching major category 3 status, with peak sustained winds of 115 mph. Hurricane warnings continue for all of the Bahamas where 6-12 inches of rain are expected in addition to hurricane force winds..
0
Irene is headed northwest at 12 mph towards the East Coast, but the latest guidance has continued to trend eastward, more offshore.
Irrespective of whether the storm makes a direct hit at particular coastal locations from North Carolina to New England, it may still bring torrential rain, coastal flooding and damaging winds.

The storm might reach category 4 levels with peak winds near 135 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As hurricane Irene nears the east cost, the Red Cross is encouraging Americans to make blood donations ahead of time. In these financially strained times, people sometimes are not able to give monetarily to charitable organizations such as the Red Cross. The Red Cross is asking for blood donations ahead of the storm, to build up a store that may be needed after the hurricane hits. Visit www.redcrossblood.org for more information.

Gaddafi’s seat of power in Tripoli seems to have fallen after rebel fighters swarmed into his compound.

The Libyan leader and his family, however, had already disappeared. If they spent the last days of their rule inside their walled citadel, Bab al-Aziziya, they had since escaped, possibly through the labyrinth of tunnels that lie beneath the compound.

With Gaddafi’s fate unknown, nobody could say for certain whether the bloodshed was over for good. In the streets beyond the compound, gunfire continued to ring out, although it was unclear whether it was a result of continued skirmishes or celebrations. There were also reports of sporadic looting as darkness fell.

Government strongholds remained in the coastal town of Sirte, Gaddafi’s birthplace, and the southern desert city of Sabha, and there was no word last night on whether his supporters would carry on fighting. But the fall of Gaddafi’s fortress-like city within a city, and the trampling of his likeness under the feet of Libya’s new rulers, represented a symbolic moment of victory after a six-month civil war.

After the civil war which has raged in Libya for the last 6 months, the country will literally have to construct itself from the ground up once the fighting is over. A transitional council has been set up to assist with that transition.

The News of the World hacking scandals are still at the top of the headline, grabbing my attention. What they did was inexcusible, from hacking a phone of a murdered girl giving the impression to family members that she was still alive to potentially listening to the phones of 9/11 victims. It was truly atrocious.

So it was with glee that I woke this morning to find that a Murdoch owned newspaper had been hacked in turn. Last night LulzSec took control of the Sun’s servers and redirected people to a spoof article detailing Murdoch’s death. There was an intrepid pitch battle between IT staff and intrepid hackers with LulzSec briefly winning a battle to redirect people to its Twitter account before the forces of Murdoch prevailed and they were locked out. Cool huh?

Another Social Network?

For those who are not yet on Google Plus, why not? Even if you join just for the hangout feature, this is a great tool. Don’t tell anyone but I’m going to be hosting my book group on it!

Combining the last two articles beautifully, a hacker group have announced that they will be creating their own social network. I’m not trying to be funny but would you trust your personal details to a hacker group, however ethical their hacks appear to be? I don’t really trust Google, I’m going to have a hard time trusting a hackers social network!

Before I move on, the reason I don’t one hundred percent trust Google is that I used to have a Google AdSense account. This account ran for years. I mean seriously this thing took ages to collect money. I just reached $99 or something like that (I had set it to send me money at $100) when Google closed it down without any reason that I could see and no correspondence was entered into, if you know what I mean. So Google managed to profit from my site giving lots of hits to its advertisers and I got nothing so I don’t feel guilty at all about the free services I use. I reckon I paid for them.

At the end of each rambling I like to mention a few of my favourite up-and-coming authors from my publishers Fantasy Island Book Publishers.

British, French helicopters strike Gadhafi troops

British Apache and French attack helicopters struck targets for the first time in NATO’s campaign in Libya, targeting and hitting Moammar Gadhafi’s troops early Saturday near a key coastal oil city.

The action was a significant step-up in NATO’s operations and a major boost to Libyan rebels, just a day after rebel fighters forced government troops from three western towns and broke the siege of a fourth in yet another break-down of Gadhafi’s power since the eruption in mid-February of the uprising to end his 42-year rule.

Al-Qaida militant killed in US strike in Pakistan

A top al-Qaida commander and rumored replacement for Osama bin Laden was killed in an American drone-fired missile strike close to the Afghan border, a fax from the militant group he heads and a Pakistani intelligence official said Saturday.

Ilyas Kashmiri’s apparent death is another blow to al-Qaida just over a month after bin Laden was killed by American commandos in a northwest Pakistani army town. Described by U.S. officials as al-Qaida’s military operations chief in Pakistan, the 47-year-old Pakistani was one of five most-wanted militant and dangerous leaders in the country, accused of a string of bloody attacks in South Asia, including the 2008 Mumbai massacre, as well as aiding plots in the West. Washington had offered a $5 million bounty for information leading to his location.

Of course, troops continue to serve in Afghanistan. If you would like to help support the families of our troops, go to http://www.operationhomefront.net/

Pirates of the Caribbean 4

Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” surged to the $400 million mark at the worldwide box office on Tuesday, in less than a week in release. That’s faster than any other film this year.

Lady Gaga sets sights on India

Pop sensation Lady Gaga, considered the most powerful celebrity in the world, has set her sights on India, partnering with New York-based media company Desi Hits to promote her brand in India.

Gaga has launched a campaigny to spread her brand in the Indian market, a report said.

“The reason I am going to India now is because I can. I did not have the money or the resources before to travel and bring all of my things with me and reach an entire new territory of fans,” said the 25-year-old.

Justin Beiber would sing with Selena Gomez

Justin Bieber who recently admitted to having a relationship with Selena Gomez, has revealed that he would love to sing with her.

The young singer admitted that he would love to collaborate on a record with Gomez because he thinks her music is “amazing”.

“Maybe I’d sing with Selena, I’ve heard all of her new stuff; it’s amazing. I would also love to work with Will.i.am as well as Jay-Z – on a cool fun record,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

British, French helicopters strike Gadhafi troops

British Apache and French attack helicopters struck targets for the first time in NATO’s campaign in Libya, targeting and hitting Moammar Gadhafi’s troops early Saturday near a key coastal oil city.

The action was a significant step-up in NATO’s operations and a major boost to Libyan rebels, just a day after rebel fighters forced government troops from three western towns and broke the siege of a fourth in yet another break-down of Gadhafi’s power since the eruption in mid-February of the uprising to end his 42-year rule.

Al-Qaida militant killed in US strike in Pakistan

A top al-Qaida commander and rumored replacement for Osama bin Laden was killed in an American drone-fired missile strike close to the Afghan border, a fax from the militant group he heads and a Pakistani intelligence official said Saturday.

Ilyas Kashmiri’s apparent death is another blow to al-Qaida just over a month after bin Laden was killed by American commandos in a northwest Pakistani army town. Described by U.S. officials as al-Qaida’s military operations chief in Pakistan, the 47-year-old Pakistani was one of five most-wanted militant and dangerous leaders in the country, accused of a string of bloody attacks in South Asia, including the 2008 Mumbai massacre, as well as aiding plots in the West. Washington had offered a $5 million bounty for information leading to his location.

Of course, troops continue to serve in Afghanistan. If you would like to help support the families of our troops, go to http://www.operationhomefront.net/
