    April 17, 2012. Barcelona, Spain. Many Americans are shocked to find out that a foreign corporation from Spain is contracted to produce, manage and tabulate US elections. The company also recently purchased a US tech start-up to acquire an even larger presence in America. With that acquisition three months ago came the privilege and responsibility of facilitating American elections in 900 municipalities and 26 states. Electronic voting is here, and it’s not American. Check the included list to see if your state is one of them. Cities and states that currently use Spain-based Scytl's SOE Software for electronic voting. Image...

In the letter, seen by The Associated Press, the five wrote that “it is important that the U.S. government’s rights over domestic tax policy be exercised in a way that adheres with international obligations to which...

    The European Union (EU) remains “committed to” giving, and is in the later stages of securing, Turkish citizens visa-free travel in the bloc, as well as handing an extra three billion euros to migrants in the nation by next year, a commissioner has said.

He made the comments to Turkish paper Hurriyet ahead of a visit...

  • Independence Hypocrisy

    Officials in Catalonia, Spain's richest and most highly industrialized region, whose capital is Barcelona, recently held a referendum in which there was a 92 percent vote in favor of independence from Spain. The Spanish authorities opposed the referendum and claimed that independence is illegal. Catalans are not the only Europeans seeking independence. Some Bavarian people are demanding independence from Germany, while others demand greater autonomy. Germany's Federal Constitutional Court ruled: "In the Federal Republic of Germany ... states are not 'masters of the constitution.' ... Therefore, there is no room under the constitution for individual states to attempt to secede....

    Several different types of sling bullets have been found at the site, from small lead bullets drilled with holes that the researchers think were designed to make a whistling noise in flight and terrorize their targets, to the largest lemon-shaped sling bullets, which weigh up to 2 ounces. "The interesting thing is that all the whistling sling bullets are from the Roman camp on the south face of the hill fort, so clearly they are using different sling bullets for different purposes," Nicholson told Live Science.
