Denmark: The ecological recycling of the dead.

The Danish Cremation has revealed that she takes advantage of recycling metal pieces recovered after incineration of the bodies. According to its president, Allan Vest, metal parts of the hip or knee, for example, are recycled into scrap metal.
          Since 2006, the 31 crematoria Danish earned 77,762 crowns (10,445 euros) by selling 4,810 pounds of metal to a recycler Dutch.
          In 2005, the Ministry of Ecclesiastical amended the statute authorizing the recycling.          It prohibits the use of such residues in works of art and demanded that families be informed of the fate of their dead.
          For Mr. Vest is great for the environment. Besides a dozen institutions have declared supporters of the use of energy by the heat generated by the crematoria, or used in district heating systems.
          In 2011, new regulations require that the crematoriums filter out toxic substances such as dioxin and mercury gases emitted into the atmosphere.
          For this purpose, they should bring them to temperature 800 ° C to 180 ° C, and that the surplus energy produced during the cooling process that crematoriums want to retrieve.
          The International Federation of cremation, based in The Hague, opposed to the marketing of cremation. But the Danish Council of Ethics, which includes scientists, religious leaders and philosophers, sees no reason to oppose recycling heat.
          For him, even if it would be indecent and illegal burning grandmother to heat radiators, cremation is a friendly and hygienic method of removing the bodies, and recycling the heat of combustion poses no ethical problem.
          The Board of Ethics said that decomposing bodies buried them emerge as an energy that feeds the plants and other organisms.

Yemen: the bride of death!

In September 2009, a Yemeni girl of twelve years died in giving birth to her baby. An illustration of the many "brides of death" married off even before puberty in a country where tribal traditions are the law.
The Yemeni Organization for the Protection of Children (Siyaj) announced yesterday that the small Fawzia Abdullah Youssef had died in a hospital in Hajjah province, north of Sanaa. The girl died shortly after arriving at the hospital and the child was stillborn, according to the Siyaj.
"Fawzia had been withdrawn from school and forcibly married eleven years to a man 25 years by his family who live in need," said director of Siyaj, Ahmad al-Qourashi, adding that his father suffered from renal failure.
The family lived in a remote village in the district of Al Zuhr, in the province of Hodeyda.
He estimated that "nearly 50% the proportion of teenage girls and married for 15 years" in the rural areas of Yemen.
"These marriages are the result of poverty, ignorance and illiteracy and lead most often to destroy the lives of these young girls whose opinion is not taken into account during the marriage," said M . Qourashi.
Siyaj conducted, with other nongovernmental organizations, a constant struggle to pass a law setting the legal age of marriage to at least 17 years and imposing fines for fathers who transgress.
"Our efforts have resulted in the adoption of this law by Parliament in February, but President of the Republic Ali Abdullah Saleh has still not enacted, "says Qourashi.
Yemen, a country of the Arabian Peninsula's poorest of the world population has a tribal structure and forced marriage is widely practiced.
Last year, the case of a girl of eight years, Nojoud Mohammad Ali, who had obtained a divorce, had highlighted the situation of thousands of female children, forced into marriage.
In power since 1990, President Ali Abdullah Saleh is challenged by the population that requires his immediate departure. Popular demonstrations organized in the capital Sanaa since January 27, 2011 are repressed in blood daily.
State of the Arabian Peninsula from 24 million to the tribal organization (the most important are Hached and Baqil), Yemen was hit by poverty and unemployment rampant despite its large reserves of gas estimated at 259 billion m3. The country also produced 300,000 barrels of oil per day goal.

The paranoia of the Vampire invades Malawi!

In January 2003, southern Malawi was facing a crisis-like fantasy... the government to help the vampires to collect blood for Western agencies to fight against AIDS in exchange for humanitarian aid. The authorities have denied, but the opposition was scared and persisted.
If the scenario seems surreal, the consequences are no less serious. In many villages, people were frightened and afraid of seeing Dracula at every street corner.
In Blantyre, the capital, Governor Eric Chiwaya, a member of United Democratic Front (UDF), was brutally attacked and molested an evening on suspicion of having sheltered bloodsuckers.
"This rumor was fabricated by opposition groups who want to discredit the irresponsible government," explained Rodrick Mulonya, deputy director of the Ministry of Information.
Two tracks have been mentioned. The first was James Brown Mpinganjira, former Minister of Education, dismissed by Bakili Muluzi, President of Malawi from 1994 to 2004. Cleared of these charges, he had shouted political conspiracy. He threatened to reveal the names of corrupt officials of the UDF, the party in power.
The second hypothesis that hairpin training, accusing the government of Malawi to accept GM maize from the United States, try to turn people against him.
"It seems natural to accept this food. How to starve our people when we have the opportunity to fight hunger? Besides, what American organization would accept in exchange for his help, the blood which, given the medical situation here, might be contaminated with AIDS? " indignant Rodrick Mulonya.
It remains that the paranoia of the vampire has caused a wave of violence acute in southern cities. Residents of Thyolo beat to death a man and seriously injured three Catholic priests, all accused of being vampires and blame their hemoglobin. The tent of a clinic against AIDS has been destroyed under the pretext that it was a refuge for sucking blood. The governor of Blantyre was the last victim of this bloody rumor.
But the rumor was persistent, despite government efforts to calm the imagination. Even the speech of President of the Republic, supposedly allay these irrational fears are nothing.
Several residents have recently complained to the police for having been attacked by bloodsuckers. Some villagers refused to leave their homes for fear of making bad games. Others were no longer cultivate their fields. The story turned to bad horror movie.

For many Papuans, this law goes against the traditions of animist tribes in remote areas of the province, where women live topless and men wear a penis sheath, the "Kotek": "Symbol of power divine in man. You can take away that forges their identity", said Karel Phil PRRA of NGO Papua New Foundation, during a press conference in Jakarta.

A Mercenary Nicaraguan Ambassador of Libya to the United Nations.

Mo'ammar Gadhafi mocks the UN & the World.

President Gaddafi Mo'ammar mounted the rostrum of the United Nations. This is the first time in 40 years of dictatorial rule over Libya. For an hour and 30 minutes (instead of 15 minutes scheduled) to 120 heads of governments, he attacks specially the Security Council dominated by five permanent members (China, Russia, USA, France and Great Britain). They have "used their veto in the design de of defend their interests and to terrorize the Third World. (...) If this is the Security Council, then it must call the Board of terror because terrorism is not just al-Qaida." He said. In fact, he took over in Arabic with theatricality, the speech of the former president of the United Nations General Assembly, the Nicaraguan Miguel D'Escoto Brockmann. Obviously, the President of the General Assembly which is none other than his former Foreign Minister Ali Triki Abdoussalam shall interrupt the president of the African Union!
And to complete the media show, and throws it disdainfully rips the UN Charter over his shoulder on the podium!

Revenge of the Security Council of the United Nations.

On 17 March 2011, the Security Council UN vote resolution No. 1973, establishing a no-fly zone over Libya.
On 21 March 2011, when he asks for an urgent meeting of Security Council, it vote for sanctions against him, his family and his senior staff (embargo on arms sales, travel ban on the territories of UN member states and the freezing of assets, before the International Criminal Court).
On 19 March 2011, the Libyan ambassador to the UN, Abdurrahman Shalgam, former Foreign Minister of the country wrote a letter to the Security Council in which he supports the use of ICC
 He emphasized that the Libyan regime has "no legitimacy. (...) This resolution is a signal to stop this fascist regime that still exists to Tripoli," he said.

Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann: A former Catholic priest diplomat

Son of a Nicaraguan diplomat Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, born in Los Angeles February 5, 1933.  In 1947, he returned to the United States continue his studies. In 1962 he was ordained a priest after his studies at the Catholic Maryknoll College in New York. In 1963, he founded in Chile, the National Institute for Research and Popular Action (INAP), to assist the underprivileged in the slums of Santiago. After the earthquake that devastated Managua in December 1972, he mobilizes aid for earthquake victims.
In 1973, he created the foundation of Nicaragua for the Integral Development of the Communities. (FUNDECI). Member of World Council of Churches (WCC) and proponent of liberation theology, he secretly adheres to the Frente Sandinista National Liberation in the years 1970.
In 1983, he was suspended from the Catholic Church because of his political activities (he was Minister of Foreign Affairs) by Pope John Paul II at the same time as the Jesuits Ernesto Cardenal (Minister of Culture), Fernando Cardenal (Minister of National Education) and Edgar Parrales (Minister of Welfare). He has served as foreign minister of Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990. He becomes then the Senior Advisor for Foreign Affairs, with rank of Minister to the President of Nicaragua from 2007.
From September 2008 to September 2009, he chaired the 63rd 63rd UN General Assembly. He received the Lenin Prize for Peace for the year 1985-1986 and the Thomas Merton Award 1987. He chairs the National Water Nicaragua, and leads the fight for the preservation of Lake Cocibolca (8,200 km2 of 177 km in length), the largest source of fresh water in Central America.

Revolutionary activist committed to the principles of nonviolence.

The former Father Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, a lawyer of multilateralism and respect for international law is based on figures like the Russian Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910), Indian Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), the African American Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) and American Dorothy Day (1897-1980), founder of Catholic Worker Movement. Sandinista theatrical and charismatic, he dedicates a particular resentment in the U.S., which he accuses of trying to assassinate him in 1983 "with a bottle of Benedictine poisoned." In 1984, he was noticed by initiating the complaint Nicaraguan government against the United States before the International Court of Justice for their support of the military and paramilitary activities against his country. The complaint led to a Court ruling in favor of Nicaragua. He even dares to deal with President Ronald Reagan (1911-2004)  of "Butcher of the Nicaraguan people."
What enchants Libyan President Gaddafi Mo'ammar who lost his adopted daughter in the bombing of Tripoli by U.S. planes (1986) under the orders of the same Ronald W. Ronald W. Reagan. It then attracts the ire of Israel by comparing the behavior of the Israeli police in the Palestinian territories to apartheid.

A first in UN history: A priest president of the National Assembly!

This is the first time a former prelate presiding the General Assembly in the history of the United Nations since its founding in 1945. And it is also the first time a foreign country becomes Ambassador  a foreign country to the United Nations, whatever his qualities as a diplomat. Especially since the mandate of a true ambassador of Libya, in this case, Mr. Abdurrahman Mohamed Shalgam (former Minister of Foreign Affairs) who defected February 26, 2011, is still ongoing. He now feels he is speaking for the Libyan people. Commenting on this appointment, he said: He just wants to make propaganda for Gaddafi. (...). They have mercenaries on the battlefield, so I guess this man is a political mercenary. "

A diplomat mercenary "visa free" for the UN?

The Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon can accept this second "unprecedented farce" of Mo'ammar Gaddafi?  Even with the support of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega (Mo'ammar Gaddafi Award for Peace 2009), Miguel d'Escoto urged to accept  his mission « to help  Libya to defend its right and to solve his problems without foregn interference ». He replaces Ali Triki Abdoussalam appointed in early March 2011 and has never obtained a U.S. visa  to return to his post in New York, given that relations with the Libyan Embassy in the United States were "suspended". For Susan Rice, U.S. Ambassador  United Nations, this strange appointment raises some embarrassment. "He came to the United States with a tourist visa. He can not represent a country, Nicaragua, Libya or another, the United Nations, "she warned. Although born in Los Angeles, California, he had voluntarily renounced his nationality U.S.. His certification signed by the Foreign Minister, Musa Kusa has lost its legal force with the resignation and flight to London this last March 28, 2011.
"The Libyan episode is a new chapter in his career based on the confrontation with the United States. That Colonel Gaddafi is this colorful character to represent it is perfectly logical, "said Colum Lynch, Washington Post correspondent at the United Nations.
April 1st, 2011, after much criticism and inability to perform his duties, Mr. Miguel d'Escoto has indicated his intention to settle for simply being representative of Nicaragua to the United Nations.
But what other incongruity we reserve the "King of kings traditional African" Mo'ammar Gaddafi to win his crusade against his people and the rest of humanity?

In 1921, in a letter addressed to His Majesty Albert I (1875-1934), King of the Belgians, he tried unsuccessfully to use the same emotional arguments to bring the Europeans not to dismember Rwanda: "My mother Nyirayuhi that j love dearly has experienced many disappointments in his life.. That is why I am convinced that if I ask you something for my mother, myself and my children, you can not deny my request. Have pity on my mother and my children. All of us here in our country, we cry, thinking that we want to divide Europe into Rwanda."
In December of that year, was raised when the "deal of Gisaka" (surrendered in Rwanda in 1923), he said sad and angry at the time: "It would be better to be shot rather than see my country torn in two by these white invaders.
Now he began to despise all Europeans and especially the Belgians he regarded as "men with no word of honor." ... And dreaming of the days of Germans who had helped him to reconquer the north in 1912.
In 1924, the mandate entrusted to Belgium to Rwanda (and Burundi) by the League of Nations (SDN) was a "civilizing mission based on a system of indirect rule.". But against all odds, new colonial authorities interfered in the affairs of the kingdom and considerably reduced the prerogatives of his powers.
Ignoring such as the royal custom forbade a king named Yuhi to cross a river during his reign, the Belgian colonial authorities summoned at random through meetings in Butare and Kigali that boycotted it without explanation. Several other customs, including polygamy (he was married to five women), the right of the sword, etc. new converts were prohibited by Catholic missionaries.
Thus he refused baptism imposed on him by the french bishop Mgr Léon Paul Classe (1874-1945), vicar apostolic of Rwanda, saying "Hitimana, it is God who uses the name".
In 1931, he said the ruler of Rwanda, "Musinga became an element of discord, suspicion, embarrassment for all, no use to the country and a great inconvenience to the government."
On 16 November 1931, four days after his testimony, Deputy Governor General of Ruanda-Urundi, Charles Voisin (1887-1942) enthroned his son 20 years Rudahigwa, under the dynastic name Mutara III (1912-1959.

From Kigoma and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania today, through a complex network, goods and information were routed from hand to hand and passed from mouth to ear.
The Belgians did not understand how these people were so uneducated informed about a world war so far from home, forbidden to pronounce the name of Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) in the region.
Thus, to circumvent this prohibition, they nicknamed German Chancellor "Hitimana."
"How's Hitimana," ! "He's fine" is hailed between then. On the basis of suspicion, the Mwami was even jailed twice and released each time without trial.
Amplified at will, the pro-German forced the Belgian colonial authorities to relegate Musinga Yuhi V in Moba, Kalemie near the shores of Lake Tanganyika from 18 June 1940.

So says the collective work entitled "Spies: The Rise and Fall of the KGB in America: (Spies: The Rise and Fall of the KGB in the U.S.)" published by Editions Yale University by Harvey Klehr, John Earl Haynes and Alexander Vassiliev.

Friend and support of Fidel Castro, he settled on the hill Finca Vingia Cuba.

He patrols himself on his fishing boat called "El Pilar", accompanied by his faithful captain Gregoria Fuentes who later served as a model for the hero of Old Man and the Sea
