BEIRUT (Reuters) – An air strike hit a hospital in the rebel-held Syrian village of Awaijel, west of Aleppo killing at least one person in the early hours of Tuesday, a day after attacks on two other hospitals in the region, a war monitor said. Jets hit Awaijel’s Baghdad hospital with rockets, injuring medical staff and patients, including some who had just moved there from a hospital hit in nearby Kafrnaha on Monday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Luxembourg’s foreign minister said on Monday that the Turkish government’s handling of dismissed civil servants reminded him of methods used by the Nazis, and that, sooner or later, the EU would have to respond with sanctions. More than 110,000 public servants in Turkey – from soldiers and judges to teachers and journalists – have been detained, suspended or sacked since a failed military coup in July, in what President Tayyip Erdogan’s critics say is a crackdown on all forms of dissent. Turkish officials say the measures are justified by the threat posed by the coup attempt, in which more than 240 people were killed as rogue soldiers commandeered fighter jets and tanks, bombing parliament and other buildings.
While this train wreck of a national election comes to its long awaited conclusion, I keep thinking about how the world is changing and how little this election reflects the reality of the world around us. Technology has changed our economy, communication systems, society, and lifestyles, a set of facts unobserved by our national politics.

Perhaps it all started with President Harry Truman’s declaration that sending US troops to Korea was a “police action.” Or maybe it was during that long string of early 20th Century military interventions in Central America and the Caribbean, when Marines were sent ashore willy-nilly to protect US business interests or citizens.

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley has announced he is refusing Syrian refugees relocating to his state. In a news release Sunday Bentley said, “After full consideration of this weekend’s attacks of terror on innocent citizens in Paris, I will oppose any attempt to relocate Syrian refugees to Alabama through the U.S.
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan urged world leaders on Saturday to prioritize the fight against terrorism as they gathered for a summit in southwestern Turkey, saying the Paris attacks claimed by Islamic State showed the time for words was now over. The worst bloodshed in France since the end of World War Two cast a pall over preparations for the two-day summit of the Group of 20 major economies that begins on Sunday and is due to be attended by heads of state including U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In the second episode of the Scheer Intelligence podcast, David Talbot, Salon.com founding editor, tells how former CIA chief Allen Dulles defied FDR to conscript former Nazi leaders in preparation for war with the Soviet Union–one of many deviations from official history excitingly recounted in Talbot’s new book, “The Devil’s Chessboard”. Talbot describes how Dulles assisted efforts to overthrow foreign governments in defiance of American authority, and alludes to new information he says supports the idea that John F.
Most rooms are composed of six straight walls: a floor and a ceiling, and four side walls all meeting at perpendicular angles. And while many architecture/design projects include gutting or demolishing some of these walls to create a more customized environment, the renovated spaces still tend to conform to what existed before: a lot of straight walls. Yet the beauty of sheetrock and other building materials is that they allow the designer to manipulate space in a more sculpted, interesting way

(Photo credit: CNN) Before the 2003 Shock and Awe bombing in Iraq, a group of activists living in Baghdad would regularly go to city sites that were crucial for maintaining health and well-being in Baghdad, such as hospitals, electrical facilities, water purification plants, and schools, and string large vinyl banners between the trees outside these buildings which read: “To Bomb This Site Would Be A War Crime.” We encouraged people in U.S. cities to do the same, trying to build empathy for people trapped in Iraq, anticipating a terrible aerial bombing. Tragically, sadly, the banners must again condemn war crimes, this time echoing international outcry because in an hour of airstrikes this past Saturday morning, the U.S

BERLIN (AP) — The United States is seeking to ease the Syrian refugee crisis by significantly increasing the number of worldwide refugees it takes in over the next two years, though not by nearly the amount many activists and former officials have urged. The U.S. will accept 85,000 refugees from around the world next year, up from 70,000, and that total would rise to 100,000 in 2017, according to U.S.

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey announced Saturday that its fighter jets have carried out their first airstrikes as part of the U.S.-led coalition against the Islamic State group in Syria. A Foreign Ministry statement said the jets began attacking IS targets late Friday across the border in Syria that were deemed to be threats to Turkey. After months of hesitance, Turkey agreed last month to take on a more active role in the fight against IS.

WASHINGTON — Turkey made its boldest move yet against the Islamic State over the weekend. It wasn’t to help the U.S.-led air campaign against the group, something Turkey could do by making its strategic Incirlik Air Base available to American jets. It wasn’t, as has been the case for Egypt and Jordan, to avenge an attack by the extremist group on its nationals
WASHINGTON, Feb 5 (Reuters) – Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh said his country’s strike against Islamic State in Syria on Thursday was just the start of its response to the militant group’s immolation of its captured pilot last month. “It’s actually the beginning of our retaliation,” Judeh said in an interview with CNN on Thursday. He said his country was “upping the ante” and going after the militants “with everything that we have.” Jordan’s military said it had deployed tens of fighter jets against Islamic State in Syria, which included bombing ammunition depots and training camps
NEW YORK (AP) — A brazen scheme in which guns — even an AK-47 rifle — were taken onto passenger jets for years in carry-on luggage was described by a Brooklyn prosecutor Tuesday as a terrorism threat that should cause the airline industry to end the practice of letting some workers enter airports without security screening. “I hope this is a wakeup call for the nation,” Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson said at a news conference.

(Adds separatists returning to airport, other details) DONESTSK, Ukraine, May 26 (Reuters) – Armed pro-Russian separatists forced a shutdown on Monday of Donetsk airport in eastern Ukraine, an airport representative said, a day after they prevented a majority of the region’s voters from taking part in presidential elections. Earlier this month, the pro-Moscow rebels declared autonomous “people’s republics” in the regions of Donetsk and Luhansk after holding makeshift referendums. They say the two regions, which include the Donbass coalfield, are no longer part of Ukraine
MEDIOTIEMPO | Agencias Estadio José Zorrilla, Valladolid, España ante una regular entrada, sábado 22 de Marzo del 2014 Por séptima ocasión consecutiva, Nery Castillo no fue convocado con el cuadro rayista El cuadro Madrideño ocupa la posición número 14 de la Tabla Ganeral El Rayo Vallecano, que tiene en su plantel al delantero mexicano Nery Castillo, empató 1-1 en su visita contra el Real Valladolid, para seguir afuera de la zona de descenso en la Liga de España, después de 29 fechas celebradas. El cuadro madrileño se vio abajo en el marcador debido al autogol del defensa portugués Zé Castro, quien recibió un balonazo en la cara tras el intento de despeje de Anaitz Arbilla para el 1-0 a los ocho minutos favorable a los “Pucelas” Los pupilos de Paco Jémez empataron 1-1 antes del descanso con buena anotación de Alberto Bueno, quien disparó de zurda luego del servicio de Roberto Trashorras a los 45 minutos. En el complemento ambos clubes tuvieron sus ocasiones de gol para sacar la victoria pero carecieron de puntería en la zona de definición, por lo que la igualada se mantuvo hasta el silbatazo final.

Jessica Zamora | MEDIOTIEMPO Tijuana, Baja California, México, jueves 22 de Marzo del 2012 Desde la llegada del “Turco”, Xolos recibe un gol cada 106 minutos, casi al mismo desempeño del líder Tigres Tijuana ha permitido sólo 16 tantos desde que Mohamed tomó la dirección técnica En la corta historia de Xolos la mejor temporada para su defensa fue en Liga de Ascenso en el Apertura 2010 al recibir sólo 7 goles Sin los reflectores encima ni fama de cuidar su marco, el cuadro de Tijuana está dando pasos muy firmes para convertirse en una zaga de miedo en el torneo. Y es que desde el arribo de Antonio Mohamed al timón, el andar de los Xoloitzcuintles se ha caracterizado por su solidez defensiva, algo que hasta la fecha conserva y que ha ido en aumento, pues recibe gol cada 106 minutos. Contando el lapso desde la fecha 11 del torneo anterior hasta la fecha 11 del actual calendario, tiempo que ha dirigido ‘El Turco’, el conjunto fronterizo ha logrado equipararse con zagas de aplicación histórica, estando sólo dos goles debajo de Tigres, quien posee el record de menos goles en contra del futbol mexicano.
