    This week financial news organization CNBC gave some mainstream attention to the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History, in which “Banksters” and their U.S. racketeering partners are being accused of laundering of 43 trillion dollars worth of ill gotten gains. The lawsuit is said to involve officials located in the highest offices of government and the financial sector. Since this information was surprisingly revealed by the mainstream news organization there has been a very suspicious and deadly fallout at the CNBC headquarters. Within hours the original page for the article was taken down, and CNBC senior...

    Funny thing about this one; I was trying to use the newly flawed Panoramio to find a interesting picture of the geology of Kazakhstan (for fun). Well, it turns out the Kazakhstan looks a lot like Kansas. But when I used Kazakhstan as a keyword in Panoramio, I found this. It's in Pakistan, end of the Karakoram Range. Ultar Realize that Panoramio is a branch of Google; this does not say much for the accuracy of their search function. But it's a very impressive peak. A killer of climbers too, from the background information I read. Click the first and...

The handsome design will tickle the sky by 2009, along with...

    Is this a ghost in the spire? A GHOSTLY mystery has come to light at Halifax's Square Church spire, baffling council chiefs and workers. Last week, the Evening Courier reported how a pair of lovebirds could halt restoration of the historic landmark. But when steeplejacks zoomed in to get a photograph of the birds’ nest, they ended up with an unexpected snapshot. Foreman Barry Done says the digital snap shows a ghostly figure hovering in the steeple – and the find has worried council bosses so much it was the hot topic at their Monday morning meeting. “I was gobsmacked...
