Poland won´t extradite Roman
Polanski to the U.S.
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: drive- 11/27/2015 10:05:51 AM     Post Reply
Poland will not extradite filmmaker Roman Polanski to the U.S. in an almost 40-year-old case after prosecutors declined to challenge a court ruling against it. Prosecutors in Krakow, who had sought the extradition on behalf of the U.S., said Friday they found the court´s refusal of extradition to be “right” and said they found no grounds to appeal it. Polanski´s lawyer, Jan Olszewski, told The Associated Press that Polanski´s reaction was of “great relief” and of “satisfaction” that the irregularities in the U.S. procedure have been exposed. Polanski spoke to his lawyer over the phone from Paris, where he lives with his

Reusable rockets

Sometimes the dark horses are the ones to watch. On November 23rd Blue Origin, a publicity-shy rocketry firm owned by Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, announced that it had achieved something spectacular. Not only did its New Shepard craft make it safely back to Earth after a brief sojourn in space—so, too, did the BE-3 rocket booster that launched New Shepard. After separating from the spacecraft, the rocket fell back to Earth. At around 1.5km from the ground, it reignited its engines, slowing its fall and making a controlled, gentle landing (pictured). To quote the firm’s triumphant press release:

Pope Francis did not go down the narrow pathways bordered by open sewers that lead into the depths of Nairobi´s Kangemi slum. All he was able to see during the ride in his popemobile on the outskirts of the slum, past huts of corrugated iron, was a quick glimpse of the labyrinth of brown and grey tin roofs and the smoke of the charcoal fires burning below. Members of the crowd who greeted the pontiff with applause and Swahili ululations were happy nevertheless. "Even though he is running on a tight schedule, he has made time to visit us here.

President Barack Obama´s attempts to destroy Isil have been derided by Western diplomats and his own former intelligence officials.Mr Obama has insisted that the United States will not change the strategy that he said was already “containing” Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) and would work eventually to “degrade and destroy” it. But in a series of candid interviews with the Telegraph, Western diplomats and intelligence officials - current and former - have angrily dismissed the approach as a “smoke and mirrors” public relations exercise founded on little substantive or effective action. “It’s smoke and mirrors and that is the

Rubio’s slippery obfuscation:

The more you pay attention to Marco Rubio, the third-place frontrunner for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, the more you begin to understand just how slippery he is as a politician. His contortions and backflips on immigration policy – going from a vocal supporter of comprehensive reform to a standard-issue “border security first” Republican – are well-documented. But in the last week Rubio has obscured his positions on three other issue areas, leaving the casual observer unsure as to where he stands, but giving them enough information to make them feel he generally agrees with them.Refugees Way back in September, when

End of daily injections for diabetes
as scientists restore insulin production
Telegraph [UK], by Sarah Knapton    Original Article

The end of daily injections for diabetes sufferers could be in sight after scientists showed it is possible to restore insulin production for up to a year by boosting the immune system. Hundreds of thousands of people in Britain suffer from Type 1 diabetes and need to inject themselves daily to keep blood sugar levels under control. The disease attacks insulin-secreting cells in the pancreas. Healthy people have billions of ‘peacekeeping’ cells called ‘T-regs’ which protect insulin-making cells from the immune system but people suffering Type 1 diabetes do not have enough.

NY Post: Colbert´s ´Late Show´ on CBS
´Has Become Propaganda for Democrats´

Since Stephen Colbert took the reins from David Letterman at The Late Show on CBS, he’s been proving to be serving comedy and commentary for the blue half of America. Kyle Smith of the New York Post penned a piece titled “Colbert’s Late Show has become propaganda for Democrats.” The large amount of advertising spent on the buildup to Colbert taking over Letterman’s coveted spot brought a decent jolt in ratings at the beginning of the show, but have since plummeted, mainly because Colbert has turned off a significant portion of that audience – the conservative audience.

The 2010 SCOTUS ‘Citizens United’ decision injected unlimited financial funding into politics via Super-PACs. Conservatives were screwed, but it took most a long time to come to the awakening. As a direct result the broader electorate was no longer needed for financial support – evidenced in the 2012 and 2014 campaign spending cycles. (Snip)Now Mitch McConnell is moving to put the GOPe Party back into direct control via a new proposal to remove campaign limits and allow Wall Street to fund Republicans directly without going through SuperPacs.

Why did it take Turkey just
17 seconds to shoot down Russian jet?
Guardian [UK], by Mark Galeotti    Original Article

Even if Turkey is right that a Russian fighter jet strayed into its airspace, the plane was within Ankara’s borders for just 17 seconds before being attacked – and was making no hostile moves against the Turks. (Snip) That the Turks shot down the jet and did so within 17 seconds – with the president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, saying he gave the order to fire himself – suggests very strongly they were waiting for a Russian plane to come into or close enough to Turkish airspace with the aim of delivering a rather pyrotechnic message. In this respect, it is

TAMPA — When Patrick Manteiga traveled to Cuba in 2002, it was to be a part of history as a member of the delegation led by then-Tampa Mayor Dick Greco, the city’s first elected official to meet with Fidel Castro. But Manteiga also sought to remind Cuba of its established history with Tampa. Manteiga, the third-generation owner of the La Gaceta newspaper, brought with him a photo of his grandfather and publication founder Victoriano Manteiga sitting with Castro at a Tampa union hall in November 1955 for a fundraiser for the future Cuban president’s revolution. Despite not seeing the late Victoriano Manteiga for

Donald Trump, the presidential hopeful who believes himself so high and mighty he can’t possibly he wrong, is now claiming that he has no idea who the reporter is after mocking his physical disability just days ago. After days of defending his false claim that New Jersey Muslims were celebrating the 9/11 terror attacks by the thousands, Trump cited an article written by Serge Kovaleski, a Washington Post reporter who has since joined the New York Times. While the article only addresses rumors at the time and does nothing to make the claim truthful, Trump has run with it despite Kovaleski’s

The realities of climate change will force American deniers -- or "crazies" -- to accept reality, Michael Bloomberg told CNN´s Christiane Amanpour in an interview that will air Friday. "Even the right-wing crazies no longer say climate change isn´t real," the billionaire former mayor of New York City declared. "They say it´s natural, it´s not business, not man-made."

WASHINGTON -Sure, Jeb Bush can become a leading Republican presidential candidate. It’s gonna be tough, but hardly impossible. More and more, voters want someone with government experience and sound political judgment. As election days get closer, they’ll seek more depth and nuance about issues. And Bush and his backers also bring a huge pile of campaign cash and a proven network of insiders well-schooled in politics and policy. Bush remains a long-shot, and polls still show him mired deep in single digits. The good news? “You’re seeing a little of that (some gains) now,” said David Paleologos, director of the

Demanding transparency from the ´most

President Obama famously pledged on the 2008 campaign trail to have the "most transparent administration in history." Seven years in, that commitment has led to little more than flowery language on whitehouse.gov. The Obama administration has an abysmal record on openness to the press and the American people. Nowhere is it worse than the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS currently boasts the largest backlog of any federal agency and, since the Obama administration took over, there has been a 182 percent increase in the number of FOIA requests at DHS. A November 2014 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report found DHS

BOBIGNY, France—Three days before the attacks that ripped through Paris, Djazira Boulanger handed the keys to her row house, across the street from a kindergarten, to a guest who had booked it over the website Homelidays.com. His name was Brahim Abdeslam. She didn’t know that Mr. Abdeslam was a central figure in plotting the deadly assault. As Ms. Boulanger tended to her two young children at home, authorities say Mr. Abdeslam and a band of cohorts were down the street preparing weapons for an assault on the Stade de France and Paris’s nightlife district. “Did I suspect something was wrong?

SEOUL—A cultural preference for male children has cost Asia dearly. Count up all the girls who were never born because of selective abortion, victims of infanticide and females who died from neglect and there are upwards of 100 million women missing on the continent today by some estimates. Not just a human-rights catastrophe, it is also a looming demographic disaster. With Asian birthrates already plummeting, that is tens of millions of women who will never be mothers. The economic and social impact on some of the world’s largest countries is incalculable. For decades, South Korea was Exhibit A in this

The Limits of Donald

If you follow polls of Republican primary voters or see the huge rallies at which Donald Trump is speaking, it may seem like the time is ripe for an “outsider” candidate to emerge as the next president. But the climate for an outsider candidate is decidedly different among Democrats, independents, and Republicans. We conducted two focus groups with likely 2016 voters in Columbus, Ohio, this month. Most certainly, these voters are sick of the same old gridlock and partisan infighting in Washington. Yet while they are looking for a unifier and consensus-builder, most have not discounted the importance of experience.

THE intense interest in the thrill-a-minute, through-the-looking-glass 2016 race, fueled by anger at maladjusted Washington and anxiety after the Paris attacks, has spawned predictions that Thanksgiving political debates will be noisier and nastier than ever. Plenty of turkeys with a bone to pick and plenty of dressing down to go with the dressing. The Democratic National Committee actually issued talking points for the “lively” conversations with Republican uncles, aunts and brothers. Clearly, the people at the D.N.C. don’t have any Republican relatives. It’s never a parley. It’s a lecture. So I decided to let my Republican brother offer his red-state

Manuel Colorado, a 36-year-old construction worker, was installing decking last year at a new building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, when he lost his balance and fell 19 feet to his death. A few weeks later, a guest at the Dream Hotel in Midtown Manhattan heard someone screaming outside. Gurmeet Singh, a 58-year-old Indian immigrant doing facade work on the building, had tumbled eight stories off a scaffold and landed atop a sidewalk shed. Twelve days after Mr. Singh’s death, Lukasz Stolarski, 33, plummeted 110 feet from the roof of an office building in Midtown where he had been attaching plywood to the parapet

The chief rabbi of Brussels told an Israeli radio station Monday that there is no future for Jews in Europe, The Jerusalem Post reports.

Jews now pray in their homes [as opposed to at synagogues] and some of them are planning on emigrating,” Gigi said. He explained, “Since Shabbat the city has been paralyzed. The

Even as Hillary Clinton is upping her anti-Wall Street rhetoric, here comes word that the Clinton Foundation is running a private-equity company down in Colombia. The private-equity field is where Mitt Romney earned his fortune — and hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of negative ads from the Obama campaign back in 2008. The foundation’s Bogota-based firm, Fondo Acceso, was started in 2010 by Bill Clinton, Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim and mining magnate Frank Giustra, with seed funding of $20 million from the foundation’s Clinton-Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative and the SLIM Foundation, the Washington Free Beacon reports. Anything to hide here? Well, Fondo

AFP reported that men who say they are from Iran have been camping on the tracks of the railroad on the border between Greece and Macedonia.

During the immigration debates prompted by the coming election, the likes of Eleanor Clift and other liberal spokespersons often cite the poetry on the Statue of Liberty as confirmation that our nation is steeped in some type of open-door immigration policy. A little research proves that not to be the case. The Statue of Liberty poem, as it is known, was written by Emma Lazarus and is named "The New Colossus." "In 1903, a bronze tablet that bears the text of ´The New Colossus´ and commemorates Emma Lazarus was presented by friends of the poet" and was donated for auction

The story of how the Pilgrims arrived at our shores on the Mayflower—and how a friendly Patuxet native named Squanto showed them how to plant corn, using fish as fertilizer—is well-known. But Squanto’s full story is not, as National Geographic’s new Thanksgiving miniseries, “Saints & Strangers,” shows. That might be because some details of Squanto’s life are in dispute. The important ones are not, however. His story is astonishing, even raising profound questions about God’s role in American history. Every Thanksgiving we remember that, to escape religious persecution, the Pilgrims sailed to the New World, landing at Plymouth Rock in
