    In Europe, Europe Day is an annual celebration of peace and unity in Europe. There are two separate designations of Europe Day: 5 May for the Council of Europe, and 9 May for the European Union (EU).[1] The latter is the EU's flag day and has a greater visibility. The Council of Europe's day reflects its own establishment in 1949, while the European Union's day is also known as Schuman Day and celebrates the historical declaration by French foreign minister Robert Schuman in 1950.[2] Europe Day is one of a number of European symbols designed to foster unity among Europeans.

He left home to get away from his father's odd philosophy. Bowe has slight autism. please pardon..he's innocent.
  • Maine Police Department Uses Classic Rock Song In Winter Safety Message

    Police in Bangor, Maine, are making use of a 1970s progressive rock hit by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band to encourage people to clear the snow off their cars before driving. Sgt. Tim Cotton posted on Facebook on Tuesday that the group’s song “Blinded By The Light” can serve as a reminder of how dangerous it is to drive with vision obscured by snow.

    Members of 4chan’s “politically incorrect” board /pol/ have begun “Operation Google,” which aims to circumnavigate the search engine’s new AI program to remove bigoted and racist posts and comments from the internet by filling the search engine with more bigotry and racism. Operation Google was outlined by 4chan members as an effort to replace the “n-word” with the word “Google,” in order to “make it so Google would have to censor their own company by making them a racial slur towards blacks.” The Operation Google “manifesto” can be read below:

    Bernie Sanders offers a real solution that the current condidates wont have. Bernie Sanders would first of all return tax levels to the way they were in the 1950s, tax the rich 90% and use the massive massive massive surplus from that tax to create jobs for the unemployed. One trillion should be paid for rebuilding infrastructure and bridges and creating jobs. Another trillion will be used to create new healthcare opertunety for workers to earn doctors degrees and to heal the sick and poor. Bernie sanders will also create government funded industries and factories that will create paying jobs...

    Previous work conducted by the Japanese team established that cats predict the presence of invisible objects based on what they hear. In the present study, the researchers wanted to find out if cats use a causal rule to infer if a container holds an object, based on whether it is shaken along with a sound or not. The team also wanted to establish if cats expect an object to fall out or not, once the container is turned over. Thirty domestic cats were videotaped while an experimenter shook a container. In some cases this action went along with a rattling...

    Prevalence of homosexuality in men is stable throughout time since many carry the genes Around half of all heterosexual men and women potentially carry so-called homosexuality genes that are passed on from one generation to the next. This has helped homosexuality to be present among humans throughout history and in all cultures, even though homosexual men normally do not have many descendants who can directly inherit their genes. According to previous research, sexual orientation is influenced to a degree by genetic factors and is therefore heritable. Chaladze says this poses a problem from an evolutionary perspective, because homosexual men tend...

    It if walks like a duck and quacks like a duck - it is a duck. If Donald Trump was running for president on the Democratic ticket, would you vote for him? Of course you would. Is it becoming more and more difficult to make excuses for Donald Trump? Did you know that Scott Walker is a loser because he did not raise taxes to balance his budget? Do any of you Trump supporters know what the federal deficit is? There is not enough taxpayer money in America to pay that off. Did you know that women should be prosecuted...

    I've been reading FR for years now but haven't ever commented. I genuinely enjoy the commentary. Sometimes it's intelligent. Sometimes it's terrible. But it's always entertaining. But I have a few questions: Why does it take so much money to keep FR going? I have numerous sites that cost a couple hundred dollars a year to keep going. Why is there censorship? Posts and comments at deleted. If they are bad or objectionable, why delete them? Why can't you self police this?

    Recently, Tom Scholl, who identified himself as a pastor of churches in Ohio and New York, as well as holding positions in several ecumenical organizations, wrote a 3-part article for my local newspaper, The Macon Telegraph, entitled -What the Koran says about Christianity.- I thought it would be an interesting series to read, but I was greatly disappointed and not a little irked. It could have been an apologia about the goodness of Islam, using selective passages from The Koran and being charitable to some elements of Christianity. But his apologia went further than the usual arguments and Koranic exhortations...

    Senator Ted Cruz is the most interesting candidate in the US presidential race right now. As a darling of the Tea Party, in 2012, he swept into the Senate, representing Texas, having campaigned on deeply conservative principles and policies. At the time, many dismissed him as a rabble-rouser who would wind up as a less successful version of George W Bush. Now, not only is he leading in the polls in Iowa, but he has also beat out senator Marco Rubio as the dark horse of the race thus far. Cruz has been criticised for having some of the most...

    He found himself a refugee at 12 years old, crammed onto a boat with no toilets, shoulder-to-shoulder with men who had soiled themselves. There was no room to sleep, no food and very little water. This boy had never seen the ocean before. Yet here he was, three days at sea now, and this ramshackle boat, tossed in heavy winds and high waves, began sinking. Grown men began screaming for help. Passengers locked below deck pounded against the door. ... For a brief, strange moment, I was calm, "So, this is how you will die." In his new memoir "The...

    In the conversation with the donor, Cruz was asked if gay marriage was a top-three priority for him and he said it wasn't. In a recording provided to POLITICO, Cruz answers a flat "No" when asked whether fighting gay marriage is a "top-three priority", an answer that pleased his socially moderate hosts but could surprise some of his evangelical backers. By late summer, she said, the River Valley Teenage Republicans were a grassroots advocacy group working to put Cruz over the top.

    Sana'a, Yemen- Special forces are closing in on one of the most ardent enemies of Christmas just outside the Yemeni capital city of Sana'a. The battle for Sana'a, which cost thousands of Yemeni lives, was declared a victory for pro-Christmas (PC) troops once soldiers raised a Christmas tree on the nation's highest mountain, Jabal an Nabi Shu'ayb. "Our troops really won an overwhelming victory today," explained Captain Jingle McSnowflake. "I mean here we are fighting in an environment that is very foreign to our men, but by the grace of Commerce, we were able to pulverize these heathens. They'll think...
