Wonderfully creative placement of the barcode. I had hopes for this man. What a waste.
An important day in modern world history. Everyone should know it.
THE FIRST WORLD WAR
I may use this as the basis for an art project.
I have been compiling stories and sources about Russia and Ukraine at my blog on Tumblr. Take a look. Lotsa good stuff. The design is different from this blog. Tons of links. Kinda like my version of the Drudge Report. But, of course, better, much better.
EUROPE IS MUCH
THAN PEOPLE THINK
Abortion laws in European countries are often
more restrictive than those in the United States.
Andorra, Malta and San Marino do not allow abortion at all. Monaco and Liechtenstein allow it only when a woman’s health or life is at risk.
Fifteen European countries, including Italy and Spain, require a mandatory waiting period. In 12 countries, including Hungary and Germany, women must undergo mandatory counselling or receive mandatory information from their doctors before the abortion.
In Germany, abortion can only be done within 12 weeks of conception.
“A HATRED THAT WILL HAVE
NO END AND KNOW NO BORDERS”
“One hundred and fifty years ago, on January 18, 1871, the German Empire was proclaimed in Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors, which the troops of the German states had just captured in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71.”
“The choice of January 18 for the proclamation that marked Germany’s birth as a unified nation was not accidental: it was the anniversary of the coronation in 1701 of the first king of Prussia.”
Tsar Alexander II of Russia warned Wilhelm, the Prussian king, that if the Germans forced France to concede long-held territory it would instill “a hatred between peoples that will have no end and know no borders” with “catastrophic consequences for all of Europe.”
