More than 600 men died. The majority of those who lost their lives were black men from the 5th Battalion South African Native Labour Corps. It has become a forgotten tragedy of the conflict. But now, 100 years on, their sacrifice is being recognised. A little earlier I spoke to Graham Scott, a Marine Archaeologist at Wessex Archaeology, who's written a book about the tragedy.

America may have long ago de-friended MySpace co-founder Tom Anderson, but his likeness is apparently still worth big bucks at the country's number-one destination for hipster clothes. Urban Outfitters is selling a long-sleeved tee emblazoned with the forgotten social network head's still-familiar face for a pricey $50. Image: Urban outfitters The item is part of a collection that also includes clothes themed after other web has-beens like AOL and Napster. At $45, the retailer's America Online T-shirt will set you back much more than even the priciest of the once-titan's service packages of its 90s heyday (top-tier was $25.90 per month). Read more...

Many, however, are predicting the death penalty issue will be quietly forgotten after the April referendum. “I always believed that the death penalty rhetoric was more to consolidate the alliance with the nationalists, but eventually it would be dropped,” said analyst Sinan Ulgen, a visiting scholar of the Carnegie Europe policy group, “because of the very high cost of introducing the death penalty in Turkey, the very high political and economical cost this would entail.” Risks involved Notably, Devlet Bahceli, the leader of Turkey’s main nationalist party, the MHP, has not, so far, echoed the president’s latest call. Analysts point out the return of the death penalty would inevitability exacerbate the country’s already deep political and ethnic divisions, if members of the Kurdish rebel group the PKK were executed. Any break with the EU would also threaten to further destabilize the country’s vulnerable economy.

Israel will divide world Jewry”. That's why Trump has to “save the Jews” – because they will simply argue themselves to death. Friedman's piece contains hardly talk about Palestinians, their only mention is in rejectionist context. Friedman might not think Trump would be interested in them. But Friedman also seems to think that Trump is not very interested in Jews as such. He ends his emotional plea with the sentence: “President Trump, you may not be interested in Jewish history, but Jewish history is now interested in you.” Wow. Now Friedman is not only the spokesperson of the Jewish State and the Jewish People now he's also speaking on behalf of Jewish History . Friedman embodies it all in his greater I, as it were. The point of Friedman’s self-contradictory rendering of this “Jewish history” (one moment the two-state solution is dead and should be forgotten, the next moment it should be resuscitated), appears to be that Jews should have something to talk about, even something to argue about, but that it should be kept at a “right-left” level, not a “right-wronglevel.

. In Syria; My grandma’s olives smell like the countryside; they smell like rosemary and fresh lemons; my grandma’s olives do not smell like dynamite; On the corner of a forgotten suburb in Damascus, Abu Yousef pulls out stacks of fresh vegetables, lays them down on the pavement, and sits in his small stall to read the morning paper. If you were to delve in one of the boxes, you’ll cross paths with dark red tomatoes and odorous parsley, but not a single batch of bullets or grenades. In Syria; Each afternoon, when a dreamy twilight kisses the sky and attaches its heavenly gloom to its impartial blueness, the imam ascends to the mosque’s pulpit and sings a call for prayer; His rhymes call for harmony and goodwill; they call for compassion and reconciliation, not for murder and bloodbaths. In Syria; The narrow allies of Damascus tell stories of love and life, of glory and art; they encode the agitated shouts of mothers and giggles of children; there are no barrel bombs under the fountains or teaspoons of phosphorous in the first kitchen drawer.

A robust style, laced with wit and incisiveness, you always talked of engaging with partners, even as those partners threw daggers at you and accused Russia of all evil under the sun. To you your colleagues owe a personal debt of gratitude. A man who was a giant among a great tradition of Russian diplomats. Calm, but with a steely determination, all manner of insult would never ruffle you, as you schooled many clearly inferior to you in the subtle art of diplomacy. Gone, but never forgotten, a man who left an indelible mark on millions around the world. RIP Vitaly Churkin. ~Paul Mansfield It so sad , we just lost a great UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin .. He helped syrian People so much from US and NATO Agression . he also helped Syrian Goverment when the SAA try to retake Aleppo from Terrorists ..

The feature Trump would like most about Shteyngart’s äppärät is this: if you hold one near your heart and aim it at a woman across the room, it will instantly read her “Fuckabilityquotient. Should you be interested, you can also capture her personality rating. Back in the day, no one could possibly have conceived that Billionaire Trump would one day run for office as a populist, the voice of “forgottencitizens, people he would likely calllosers” in an off-election year. It was equally difficult to imagine that the three-times-married business man with the wondering eye, wayward hands and foul language would become the flag bearer for the country’s pro-lifemoral majority,” to say nothing of self-righteous evangelicals. With his Dickensian business ethics and his Roaring Twenties ostentation, Trump seems more like an updated version of the tycoon Father had pronounced dead shortly after World War II.

Corman's original brief was to make a violent thriller in the mould of Hitchcock's Psycho ; the result, shot in Ireland for about $40,000, so horrified Corman that he brought Coppola's friend Jack Hill in to shoot some extra sequences. Such inauspicious beginnings aside, Coppola's rise through the industry was relatively fast. Just three years after Dimension 13, his coming-of-age comedy You're A Big Boy Now emerged to widespread acclaim. By 1972, he'd won an Academy Award for his screenplay for Patton , while The Godfather went on to become a global box-office hit. For decades, The Heavens Call seemed in danger of becoming a half-forgotten footnote in history, eclipsed by Battle Beyond The Sun and its goofy aliens. In more recent years, however, the importance of The Heavens Call and other Eastern Bloc genre films has become more widely recognised.

Alwaght The Islamic Republic of Iran is trying to draw the right course of dealing with the Israeli regime as the work proved a failure when it was done by many regional and international sides, including the Arab regimes. It can be suggested that the course on which Tehran is working will be of avail to the Palestinian side in Israeli-Arab conflict. No other ways can work while the American policy is determined to make the Palestinian cause part of the forgotten history. Iran has set to hold the 6 th international conference on Palestinian intifada on February 21 and 22 in the capital city of Tehran. The event will bear a number of signals with a consideration of the place, the timing, and the attendance. Hosted by the Iranian parliament, the pro-Palestinian conference is set to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday in the Iranian capital.

The entire DNC leadership is now facing existential threats, not merely the politics of personal destruction. When the truth comes out about their respective involvement in either Pizzagate or Pedogate , the whole world will reel in horror. These heinous crimes against the children of the United States and other nations will be too serious to ever forgive. Nor will they ever be forgotten by the present planetary civilization. The sooner that President Trump closes this sordid and shameful chapter of American history, the quicker that other countries can begin protecting their children as well. President Vladimir Putin has already terminated the adoption of Russian children by Americans for this very reason, among other related issues. The time is now to shut down Pizzagate in the USA, as well as expose Pedogate globally, so that Deep State finds itself in deep trouble.

Declaring 2017 to be a year of kicking Russia in the ass , Sen. Lindsey Graham (R SC) is pushing for a new series of anti-Russia measures in Congress, saying he expects to push President Trump to take a tougher stance against Russia with new sanctions. The always hawkish Graham made the comments with respect to questions about possible Russian involvement in the 2016 US presidential election. Graham is one of several senators eager to launch anti-Russia investigations with respect to the election and other general issues. Of course, Sen. Graham has been pushing anti-Russia measures since long before the election allegations, and will be pushing such measures in Congress long after the election has been forgotten. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov shrugged off the comments, however. I have seen no facts, Lavrov said of the allegations, just some accusations that we tried to hack some Democratic Party website.
