There are parts of Britain where more than half of jobs are held by workers who were born overseas

In Newham – the East London borough hosting the 2012 Olympics - almost seven in every ten jobs are filled by workers who were not born in Britain – or 65,100 out of 93,700 posts. Many of the jobs are on the Olympic site itself. The number of British-born people in Newham who are not in work is 25,600. This is a combination of the unemployed and those classed as economically inactive, such as students and the long-term sick. There are six local authority areas where more than 50% of the jobs are filled by migrant workers – and a further 18 where those born outside Britain take up more than one in every three jobs. Outside London, the areas where the biggest proportion of jobs are taken by immigrants are Slough, Leicester, Luton, Reading, Cambridge, Manchester and Oxford. Crawley, in West Sussex, and Elmbridge, in Surrey, are also at the top of the list.

People who live in countries where disease is rife have lower IQs because they have to divert energy away from brain development to fight infections

The idea helps to explain why national IQ scores differ around the world, and are lower in some warmer countries where debilitating parasites such as malaria are widespread. Researchers behind the theory point out that the impact of disease on IQ scores has been under-appreciated, and believe it ranks alongside education and wealth as a major factor that influences cognitive ability. The latest theory, put forward by Randy Thornhill and others at the University of New Mexico, adds disease to a long list of factors that play a role in determining intelligence. Thornhill made the news in 2000, when he coauthored a provocative book called A Natural History of Rape in which he argues that sexual coercion emerged as an evolutionary adaptation. Thornhill and his colleagues explain that children under five devote much of their energy to brain development. When the body has to fight infections, it may have to sacrifice brain development. To test the idea, Thornhill's group used three published surveys of global IQ scores and compared them with data from the World Health Organization (WHO) on how badly infectious diseases affect different countries. The list included common infections, such as malaria, tetanus and tuberculosis. The scientists found that the level of infectious disease in a country was closely linked to the average national IQ. The heavier the burden of disease, the lower the nation's IQ scores. Thornhill believes that nations who have lived with diseases for long periods may have adapted, by developing better immune systems at the expense of brain function. The effect of infectious disease on IQ is bigger than any other single factor. Disease is a major sap on the body's energy, and the brain takes a lot of energy to build. If you don't have enough, you can't do it properly. The consequence of this is that the IQ of a nation will be largely unaffected until you can lift the burden of disease. The finding explains about 50% - 60% of the variability in IQ scores and appears to be independent of some other factors such as overall GDP. For reasons that are unclear, IQ scores are generally rising around the world. Thornhill suggests monitoring rates of infectious diseases in nations as they develop, to see if they decline and IQ tests scores rise. Richard Lynn, professor of psychology at Ulster University, and author of the 2002 book, IQ and the Wealth of Nations, said disease and IQ is a two-way relationship, with low national IQs being partly responsible for widespread infectious diseases. In recent decades, HIV has been a serious infectious disease, and it has a high infection rate in low IQ countries, especially in southern Africa, where it is present in around 30% of the population. This is attributable to the low IQ of the population who do not understand the way the infection is contracted, and have erroneous beliefs about how to prevent infection.

Now blacks want segregated schools

A Hispanic killed a crying girl during a World Cup game

A Hispanic accused of fatally beating his 2-year-old stepdaughter when she wouldn't stop crying as he watched a World Cup game has been charged with capital murder. McAllen Police say that 27-year-old Hector Castro is being held on $1 million bond. Castro told investigators that the toddler wouldn't stop crying while he was trying to watch the U.S.-Ghana matchup. The child was severely beaten and suffered several broken ribs. Police said a screw or bolt was forced down her throat in an apparent attempt to make it look like she choked to death. McAllen is near the U.S.-Mexico border at the southern tip of Texas.

A Mexican politician who was expected to win a state election has been killed on the campaign trail

Rodolfo Torre Cantu, who was running for governor in the north-eastern state of Tamaulipas, was shot along with four of his supporters. Police say he was on his way to a series of campaign rallies when his convoy was ambushed by hooded gunmen. He was standing for the Todos Tamaulipas coalition in the gubernatorial elections. Torre Cantu of the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, was attacked near Ciudad Victoria, where he was going to catch a flight to Matamoros for an end-of-campaign event. Tamaulipas has been the scene of a fierce turf war between rival drug gangs fighting over access to lucrative drug smuggling routes to the United States. Torre Cantu had made the fight against drug-related violence his central campaign promise. Only hours before he was killed, Torre Cantu told a rally that he wanted the people of Tamaulipas to feel safe and to be able to walk the streets without fear.

Mexican singer Sergio Vega has been shot dead only hours after he had denied reports he had been murdered

The singer, known as El Shaka, told a website he had increased security measures after a number of Mexican musicians were killed. Musicians performing narcocorridos, songs celebrating the lives of drug barons, often become the targets of rival drug gangs. Gunmen opened fire on Mr Vega on his way to a concert in Sinaloa state. Mexican media reported Vega was driving his red Cadillac when a truck started following him. Shortly after, shots were fired at the car, injuring Vega and making him lose control of the vehicle and crashing it. The gunmen then finished Vega off with shots to the head and chest. Police confirmed they found spent bullet shells next to the driver's door. Vega had increased his security measures after the killing in 2007 of Sergio Gomez, the singer of Grupero band K-Paz de la Sierra. Gomez was kidnapped after a concert in Michoacan, at which Vega had also performed. He was found strangled days later. At least seven Grupero musicians have been killed over the past three years. Police have blamed drug gangs for the killings. They say musicians who celebrate the lives of drug barons in their lyrics often become targets for rival drug gangs.

More than half of South Africans struggled to afford food in 2009

Since 2008, slightly more than half of South Africans said there were times in the past 12 months when they did not have enough money to buy food that they or their families needed. Although more than a majority, the percentage is not unusually high for sub-Saharan Africa: The median percentage across 18 countries in the region in 2009 was 59%. Pressed further, about one in four South Africans surveyed since 2006 said they or their families have gone without enough food to eat at least several times in the past year. South Africans fare somewhat better on this measure than many of their counterparts elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa: The median percentage saying they went without enough to eat several times or more in 2009 was 35%.

Slavery in modern day sub-Saharan Africa

According to the Department of State's 2010 Trafficking in Persons Report, most countries in Sub-Saharan Africa are both a source and a destination country for men, women, and children subjected to trafficking for the purpose of forced labor and forced prostitution. In other words, in these countries, unscrupulous people exploit, coerce, abduct or purchase individuals for the purpose of enslaving them. A few, like Niger, Mali, and Mauritania, still allow caste-based slavery practices rooted in ancestral master-slave relationships.

The real unemployment rate is estimated to be 16.6%

The proportion of foreign-born workers is the highest since the 1920s, at one in six. Maybe if we deported some of these foreign-born workers back to their countries of origin we could reduce the real unemployment rate?

British history and the media

Race, gender and science in the United States

From Instapundit:
I work for a very large high tech company. I presently manage a research team in the corporate lab. The problem is that there is no encouragement for American non-minority males to go into science and engineering because we will almost never hire them. Instead we are being forced to look for technical females and under-represented minorities. Since very few American females choose engineering, we end up hiring Chinese and Indian women. The universities that I work with tell me that they find it almost impossible to recruit American males to PhD programs. I believe within less than a generation we will be in deep trouble, technically, in this country, and we’ll be without the means and capability to maintain the highly sophisticated civilization that we’ve constructed.

Blacks committed 66% of all violent crime in New York in 2009, including 80% of shootings and 71% of robberies

Blacks and Hispanics together accounted for 98% of reported gun assaults. Non-Hispanic whites, on the other hand, committed 5% of the city’s violent crimes in 2009, 1.4% of all shootings and less than 5% of all robberies.

While 53% of blacks view the term "socialism" favorably, just 24% of whites do

In addition, socialism is favorably perceived by 33% of women compared to 25% of men. It is viewed unfavorably by a slim majority of women (54%) compared to two-thirds of men (65%). Capitalism, in contrast, is viewed favorably by 59% of men compared to 47% of women. It invokes negative feelings in 34% of men and 40% of women.

Just over 12% of London’s 7.5 million population is black, including those of mixed black and white parentage, while 69% is white

Yet new police statistics show that blacks are proceeded against for 54% of street crimes (such as muggings, assault with intent to rob and snatching property), 59% of robberies and 67% of gun crimes. The police figures also show that black men are twice as likely to be victims. Blacks are 29% of the male victims of gun crime and 24% of the male victims of knife crime. On sex offenses, black men make up 32% of male suspects proceeded against, and white men 49%. The statistics also suggest that black women are responsible for a disproportionate amount of violent crime committed by females.

Pakistan will start monitoring 7 major websites, including Google and Yahoo, for content it deems offensive to Muslims

YouTube, Amazon, MSN, Hotmail and Bing will also come under scrutiny, while 17 less well-known sites will be blocked. Officials will monitor the sites and block links deemed inappropriate. In May 2010, Pakistan banned access to Facebook after the social network hosted a "blasphemous" competition to draw the prophet Muhammad. The new action will see Pakistani authorities monitor content published on the 7 sites, blocking individual pages if content is judged to be offensive. The ban on Facebook was lifted after about two weeks, when the site blocked access to the page, called Everybody Draw Muhammad. Facebook itself is not on the new list of websites to be monitored. A number of links from YouTube will be blocked but not the main site itself. Many Muslims regard depictions of Muhammad, even favorable ones, as blasphemous. In 2007, the government banned YouTube, allegedly to block material offensive to the government of Pervez Musharraf.

9 people have been shot dead in an attack on a drug rehabilitation center in northern Mexico

Unidentified gunmen opened fire at the center in the city of Gomez Palacio, Durango state. The bodies were found in different parts of the center, which had nearly 50 patients. Earlier in June 2010, a similar attack on another drug rehabilitation center in northern Mexico left 19 people dead. In recent years, dozens have died in similar attacks. Such shootings are blamed on drug traffickers, who accuse the clinics of protecting dealers from rival gangs. Also, police say drug cartels use rehabilitation clinics to recruit hit-men and smugglers - and threaten to kill those who fail to co-operate. Durango state deputy attorney general Ramiro Ortiz said the owner of the center attacked in Gomez Palacio was among the dead and appeared to have been the main target.

Gay men can recall familiar faces faster and more accurately than heterosexual men because, like women, they use both sides of their brains

The study examined the influence of gender, sexual orientation and whether we're right-or-left-handed on our ability to recognize faces. It found that when memorizing and discriminating between faces, homosexual men show patterns of bilaterality - the usage of both sides of the brain - similar to heterosexual women. Heterosexual men tend to favor the right hemisphere for such tasks. Researchers also investigated the influence of hand dominance on such tasks. They found that left-handed heterosexual participants had better face recognition abilities than left-handed homosexuals, and also outperformed right-handed heterosexuals. Hand dominance is thought to be linked with both hemispheric functioning and sexual orientation; previous studies have shown that homosexual individuals are 39% more likely to be left-handed. Anatomical studies of the corpus callosum, which facilitates communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain, also indicate differences in handedness: women and left-handed men have been shown to possess larger corpus callosum and more symmetrical cortices than right-handed men.

Americans are more pessimistic about the country and less confident in Obama's leadership than at any point since he entered the White House

In the survey, 62% of adults feel the country is on the wrong track, the highest level since before the 2008 election. Just one-third think the economy will get better over the next year. Amid anxiety over the nation's course, support for Obama and other incumbents is eroding. For the first time, more people disapprove of Obama's job performance than approve and 57% of voters would prefer to elect a new person to Congress than re-elect their local representatives, the highest share in 18 years. Support for Obama and his party is declining among centrist, independent voters. But, some in his base also are souring, with 17% of Democrats disapproving of Obama's job performance, the highest level of his presidency. Approval for Obama has dropped among Hispanics, too, along with small-town residents, white women and seniors. African-Americans remain the firmest part of Obama's base, with 91% approving of his job performance.

Black athlete indicted on charges of rape, criminal sexual act and sexual abuse

Former Giants great Lawrence Taylor has been indicted for raping a 16-year-old prostitute who was dragged to his Rockland County hotel room by a man cops called a "bad ass" pimp. The Hall of Famer was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child, sexual abuse, and other sex charges by a Rockland County grand jury.

Kwame Kilpatrick has been accused of fraud and tax evasion

Former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, already in jail for a probation violation for a separate crime, has been indicted for using money from a non-profit civic fund for personal and political expenses and to pay friends and relatives and give them gifts. The 19-count indictment accuses Kilpatrick of tapping the fund - created for voter education and improving neighborhoods - to pay for counter-surveillance and anti-bugging equipment, yoga lessons, golf clubs and instruction and summer camp for his children. While Kilpatrick was mayor he received unreported taxable income of $640,000 from 2003 to 200. He is accused of filing false tax returns, failing to declare the income and failing to declare that income in the tax years 2003-2007. He is accused of evading taxes in 2008. Kilpatrick is already serving an 18-month sentence for violating his probation on obstruction of justice charges related to a sex scandal involving a former staff member.

Report: 43% more millionaires in Israel in 2009

While the global financial crisis led to a 17% rise in the number of millionaires in the world in 2009, the number of Israeli millionaires increased by a whopping 43% last year. The drastic climb placed Israel as the country with the third highest growth rate of millionaires per capita, after India and Hong Kong.

Smiling actually increases your happiness

Researchers have discovered that being unable to smile when you are happy feeds back to the brain reducing the intensity of feeling. A person with limited ability to make facial expressions was found to also have a limited ability to feel emotions. The simple act of smiling can help make you feel happy, while frowning can bring down your mood.

Scientists have found that the size of different parts of people's brains correspond to their personalities

For the study, 116 volunteers answered a questionnaire to describe their personality, then had a brain imaging test that measured the relative size of different parts of the brain. A computer program was used to warp each brain image so that the relative sizes of different structures could be compared. Several links were found between the size of certain brain regions and personality. For example, conscientious people tend to have a bigger lateral prefrontal cortex, a region of the brain involved in planning and controlling behavior. Another one of those regions - the medial orbitofrontal cortex - was significantly larger in study subjects with a lot of extroversion.

Sholom Rubashkin, the Orthodox Jew who ran a kosher meat-processing plant in Iowa, has been sentenced to 27 years on fraud charges

In November 2009, he was convicted of 86 counts of federal bank fraud in connection with loans to the company, Agriprocessors. Prosecutors had pushed for a life sentence. The sentencing judge, Linda Reade, said Rubashkin had repeatedly defrauded banks out of millions of dollars. She cited one episode in which Rubashkin lent $4,500 to illegal immigrants working in his plant so that they could buy fake identity documents, in order to try to ward off questioning by immigration authorities.

Disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff has landed a job at a kosher pizzeria in Baltimore soon after his release from prison

The owner of Tov Pizza, Ron Rosenbluth, said Abramoff is working there and is learning about the business and will eventually help with marketing. Abramoff is an orthodox Jew. He was released from a minimum-security prison camp in western Maryland after serving about 3 1/2 years for fraud, corruption and conspiracy. The former Washington power broker's activities led to the conviction of a congressman. He reported to a halfway house run by a nonprofit that arranged the job. The restaurant owner says he has hired halfway house residents before and he thinks Abramoff could bring traffic to his 26-year-old business.

More intelligent individuals are more open to novel experiences

Satoshi Kanazawa explains why more intelligent individuals are more open to novel experiences and are therefore more prone to seek novelty:
General intelligence evolved as a domain-specific adaptation to deal with and solve evolutionarily novel problems, so it makes perfect sense that more intelligent individuals, who are better able to solve such problems, are more open to novel entities and concepts that might potentially lead to the solution of such problems.

Mexican drug gangs threaten Arizona police

Mexican cartels are making direct death threats to U.S. law enforcement officials in Nogales, Arizona, the police chief there has said. The threats began after off-duty police officers from the Nogales police department seized several hundred pounds of marijuana from a Mexican drug smuggling operation they stumbled upon while horseback riding in the eastern fringes of Nogales. The smugglers in the incident managed to flee into Mexico before they could be detained, Nogales Police Chief Jeffrey Kirkham said. It was unclear which Mexican drug cartel was making the threats against the Nogales police department, but Kirkham said there is a turf war on the other side of the border in Nogales Sonora, Mexico, between the Sinaloa cartel and the Juarez cartel.

Race and immigration in Canada

The Canadian government prefers immigrants from Asia rather than the Caribbean and Latin America. In Canada, Chinese and South Asians are the most likely to have university degrees or higher, and to be employed in high-skilled occupations. Second-generation youth of Caribbean and Latin American origin don’t fare so well and tend to obtain lower levels of education than native-born Canadian kids and wind up in less skilled jobs. Since 1999, China and India have been the top two source countries for immigrants to Canada, averaging about 60,000 landings per year, while the number coming from the Caribbean has fallen sharply. Immigration from the West Indies has fallen 45% below levels seen in the early 1990s when more than 16,000 from that region were entering the country annually. The average wait time for someone wishing to bring a spouse into Canada from Kingston, Jamaica has ballooned to 15 months, fully three times the processing time in 2006. A similar application lodged in New Delhi takes just six months.

One of the victims was a police officer.

Race and schizophrenia

Black patients with schizophrenia show reduced global gray matter volume compared with ethnically-matched mentally healthy controls, report British researchers who found no such deficits in white patients. The findings may shed light on the increased rate of psychosis in the black community in Britain, which has been variously reported to be 2–18 times higher than in the white population. To investigate, researchers recruited 34 white British patients and 33 ethnically-matched mentally healthy controls alongside 41 African-Caribbean and black African patients and 35 matched controls. They scanned all patients using high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging and voxel-based morphometry image analysis. Both white patients and black patients with schizophrenia showed ventricular enlargement and increased lenticular nucleus volume compared with their respective ethnic controls. The researchers note that increased ventricular volume is one of the most frequently found structural brain abnormalities in studies of schizophrenia. Meanwhile, the lenticular nucleus is part of the striatum, and striatal enlargement has been reported in the early stages of psychosis following antipsychotic exposure. Contrary to their predictions, however, the researchers found that black patients also showed reduced global gray matter and increased lingual gyrus gray-matter volume relative to the mentally healthy ethnically matched controls. The white patients had no regional or global gray-matter loss compared with their controls, but showed increased gray matter in the left superior temporal lobe and right parahippocampal gyrus.

Bands of chimpanzees violently kill individuals from neighboring groups in order to expand their own territory

During a decade of study, researchers witnessed 18 fatal attacks and found signs of 3 others perpetrated by members of a large community of about 150 chimps at Ngogo, Kibale National Park. Then in the summer of 2009, the Ngogo chimpanzees began to use the area where two-thirds of these events occurred, expanding their territory by 22%. They traveled, socialized and fed on their favorite fruits in the new region. When they started to move into this area, it didn't take much time to realize that they had killed a lot of other chimpanzees there. Chimpanzees (along with bonobos) are humans' closest living relatives. Anthropologists have long known that they kill their neighbors, and they suspected that they did so to seize their land.

Children at racially mixed schools consistently score lower grades than their peers at predominantly white or black schools

Dutch sociology professor Jaap Dronkers has carried out research into the pros and cons of ethnic diversity in secondary education. He compared student achievement in language, math and physics of 15-year-old children in 15 Western countries. Much to his surprise, students’ grades were inversely proportional to ethnic diversity. He interpreted lower student achievement at ethnically diverse schools to mean that a great deal of energy is spent on bridging the various cultural gaps between students. As a result, teachers are unable to focus on teaching. They keep hopping from one culture to the next. It uses up time and energy not spent on teaching. Another noteworthy finding from his research are the generally below-average achievements of students with an Islamic background.

Thousands of Israelis are moving to Germany

In 2008, almost 2,000 Israelis became naturalized German citizens. Two years earlier, more than 4,300 did so. According to the Israeli embassy, around 13,000 Israelis now live in Berlin alone. It is believed that many Israelis are coming to Germany in order to escape the constant threat of violence in the Middle East.

The single best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percentage of the population that is black and Hispanic

Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery. When blacks commit crimes of violence, they are nearly three times more likely than non-blacks to use a gun, and more than twice as likely to use a knife. Hispanics commit violent crimes at roughly three times the white rate, and Asians commit violent crimes at about one quarter the white rate. Of the nearly 770,000 violent interracial crimes committed every year involving blacks and whites, blacks commit 85% and whites commit 15%. Blacks commit more violent crime against whites than against blacks. Forty-five percent of their victims are white, 43% are black, and 10% are Hispanic. When whites commit violent crime, only 3% of their victims are black. Blacks are an estimated 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against a white than vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit robbery. Blacks are 2.25 times more likely to commit officially-designated hate crimes against whites than vice versa. Only 10% of youth gang members are white. Hispanics are 19 times more likely than whites to be members of youth gangs. Blacks are 15 times more likely, and Asians are 9 times more likely.

Do lesbians make better parents?

Researchers have found that children in lesbian homes scored higher than kids in straight families on some psychological measures of self-esteem and confidence, did better academically and were less likely to have behavioral problems, such as rule-breaking and aggression. The most likely reason for these results is that women are better at raising children than men and so families with two women will do a better job than families with one woman and one man. For the same reason, families with one man and one woman should do a better job at raising children than families with two men.

South Africa has one of the highest rape rates in the world

A 2009 report by South Africa's Medical Research Council found that 28% of men surveyed had raped a woman or girl, with one in 20 saying they had raped in the past year, according to Human Rights Watch. In most African countries, even though rape is common, rape convictions are not. Affected women don't get immediate access to medical care, and DNA tests to provide evidence are unaffordable. Women and girls who experience these violations are denied justice, factors that contribute to the normalization of rape and violence in African societies. Women take drastic measures to prevent rape in South Africa with some wearing extra tight biker shorts and others inserting razor blades in their private parts.

New sex abuse allegations against Rabbi Baruch Lebovits

New sex abuse allegations - at least one stretching back more than a decade - are surfacing against a once-respected Brooklyn rabbi recently convicted of molesting a teen. A 29-year-old Borough Park man went to the police saying that Rabbi Baruch Lebovits fondled him in a ritual bath, known as a mikvah, when he was just a teen. Several more men have reached out to police to share stories of sexual abuse at the hands of the rabbi. Lebovits was sentenced to 10 to 32 years in prison for sex assaults on a 16-year-old boy - a stunning turn in the life of a cantor who led popular religious services in Brooklyn and upstate. The conviction appears to have drawn out other men who now say Lebovits victimized them for years. On top of this, a Brooklyn judge is supposed to decide whether two other sex-abuse cases against the rabbi can continue: an 18-year-old man told cops that Lebovits attacked him in a car two years ago; and a 22-year-old man said Lebovits abused him starting when he was 12, and continued until he was 16. His name has been linked with other high-profile incidents in the tight-knit Hasidic community. After Borough Park newlywed Motty Borger killed himself, a newspaper report claimed the 24-year-old man had said he was molested by Lebovits. In May 2010, 28-year-old Meir Dascalowitz of Williamsburg was charged with molesting a 12-year-old boy in a mikvah. Police said Dascalowitz told them that he had been abused by Lebovits as a teen.

Millions in Bangladesh exposed to arsenic in drinking water

A new study says that up to 77 million people in Bangladesh are being exposed to toxic levels of arsenic, potentially taking years or decades off their lives. An international team of researchers followed 12,000 people over the past decade, monitoring their arsenic intake and mortality rates from contaminated wells. By the end of the study, one in five deaths were determined to be directly related to elevated arsenic levels in their system. Stretch that over the entire population that takes its water from wells, and the impact is daunting. The problem has been known about for years, if not the overall deadly impact. Well-meaning development groups had encouraged remote villages across Bangladesh to dig wells over the past decades, rather than rely on potentially contaminated surface water and dirty rivers. But now potentially a much worse problem has been found far below the surface. Arsenic is found in abundance in the soil and rock in Bangladesh. It's leached up through the water table in tens of millions of water wells across the country. The study showed that the top quarter of those exposed had a 70% higher mortality rate than would be expected in the population as a whole. Other long term health studies have shown it takes 20 years for the negative morbidity effects of arsenic poisoning to dissipate, even after they stopped using contaminated wells.

Eye color, dominance and submissiveness

New research indicates that the features standing for higher perceived dominance in males are correlated with presence of brown eyes; or alternatively, the features connected with higher perceived submissiveness in males with the blue eyes. I wonder if this means that brown-eyed men are more violent and more likely to commit crimes?

Is Obama anti-British?

The British media says that Obama has revealed his anti-British side over the Gulf Oil Spill, and a new report backs up their view. An interview in the Daily Mail with Obama's grandfather's wife reveals how she told him about the way the British tortured his grandfather during the Mau Mau rebellion in the early 1950s. Sarah Onyango was Hussein Onyango's third wife. When Obama visited Kenya, Sarah says she told him of the torture his grandfather, a former cook in the British army who turned against them in the fight for independence, received. It was apparently his grandmother's claims that turned the future president against the British.

Joe Kowalski points out that European and South American teams dominate world soccer and have won every single World Cup. Also, Cameroon has become the first country eliminated from the 2010 World Cup.

What Obama thinks of white people

Obama really hates whitey:
From Dreams of My Father: “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.”

From Dreams of My Father : “I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.”

From Dreams of My Father: “There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white.”

From Dreams of My Father: “It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.”

From Dreams of My Father: “I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own.. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa , that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes of Martin and “Malcolm X”, DuBois and Mandela.”

From Audacity of Hope: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Slowly but steadily, a decade-old business around the dead German leader Adolf Hitler is emerging as a small-scale industry in India

Books and memorabilia on the German leader's life have found a steady market in some sections of Indian society where he is idolized and admired, mostly by the young. The numbers are small but seem to be growing. A Bollywood film - Dear Friend Hitler - is due to be released by the end of 2010, focusing on the dictator's relationship with his mistress Eva Braun. Books, T-shirts, bags and key-rings with his photo or name on do sell in India and his autobiography, Mein Kampf, sells the most. Jaico, the largest publisher and distributor of Mein Kampf in India, has sold more than a 100,000 copies since 2000. Crossword, an India-wide chain of book stores, has sold more than 25,000 copies since 2000 and says that it has been a consistent bestseller for them. The more well-heeled the area, the higher the sales. The book has several editions and is available in vernacular Indian languages too. There are at least seven publishers now competing with Jaico. Mein Kampf sells well in other parts of the world too. In the United States, it sold 26,000 copies in 2009. In 2005 it sold 100,000 copies in Turkey in just a few months. The Arabic imprint is popular in the Palestinian territories. Nearly all the booksellers and publishers contacted in India say it is mainly young people who read Mein Kampf. In the past, a couple of right-wing Hindu leaders have also expressed their admiration for Hitler.

Gunmen shot and killed the mayor of the Mexican town of Guadalupe as his wife and child watched

Mexican federal police confirmed the shooting death of Guadalupe Mayor Jesus Manuel Lara Rodriguez. Ciudad Juarez Mayor Jose Reyes Ferriz said Lara, who maintained what was apparently a second home in Juarez, was killed outside that house as he walked to his car. Lara, who became the mayor of Guadalupe in 2007, had apparently taken up residence in Juarez to protect his family. He kept his official home in Guadalupe. Violence has increased in Guadalupe since 2,000 federal troops arrived in Juarez earlier in 2010. Guadalupe - a city bordering Hudspeth County, Texas - once had 40 policemen but is now left with four. The northern Mexico state of Chihuahua is one of the main battlegrounds for rival drug cartels fighting for access to the U.S. drug-trade corridor.

Libya, once the gateway for African immigrants seeking to cross the Mediterranean to Europe, is increasingly putting up its shutters

Apparently, Muammar Gaddafi's Libya - once a pariah state accused of promoting terrorism to threaten Western interests - is now a key ally in efforts to tackle illegal immigration from Africa. Libya is now fighting illegal immigration on land and at sea. This has led to a crackdown on human-trafficking syndicates, the detention and deportation of illegal migrants, and joint sea patrols with the former colonial power, Italy - something that was once unthinkable as Libya promoted a pan-African vision free of Western influence. Expressing his satisfaction with Libya's actions, Adrianus Koetsenruijter, the EU ambassador accredited to Libya, said illegal immigrant landings on Italian and Maltese shores are almost zero now.

Malaria evolved alongside anatomically modern humans and moved with our ancestors as they migrated out of Africa around 60-80,000 years ago

An international team has tracked the progress of malaria across the tropics by characterizing them by DNA sequencing and were able to calculate the age of the parasite. The scientists discovered clear correlation of decreasing genetic diversity with distance from sub-Saharan Africa. This accurately mirrored the same data for humans suggesting strong evidence of co-evolution and migration.

Asylum seeker from Angola jailed after smuggling £2 million of cocaine into Britain

Teresa Matos is an African who came to Britain having fled poverty and civil war in her home country of Angola. She was given both British citizenship and an enviable job with the Royal Navy and decided to show her gratitude to the British people for their kindness and generosity by becoming the first Royal Navy sailor to be convicted for trying to use a warship to smuggle drugs into the country. She tried to bring over 8.5kg of 100% cocaine – £2 million worth – into Britain aboard HMS Manchester. The astonishing ambition of Matos’s crime was laid bare in court when she was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison. Three London-based accomplices were also sentenced: her Angolan boyfriend Raul Beia, 39 – who had also been granted asylum to live in Britain – was jailed for 13 years; Dean Langley, 20, for 11 years; and Abdul Banda, 34, for ten and a half years.

Should Obama be re-elected?

Voters remain split on whether Obama deserves to be re-elected in 2012, with 46% saying he does and 51% saying he does not. Obama does not receive a universal endorsement for re-election among his fellow Democrats, 18% of whom say he does not deserve re-election; 79% say he does. That compares with the 9% of Republicans who say Obama deserves re-election. A 53% majority of independents say Obama does not deserve re-election.

Imperial County, California: High in both Hispanics and unemployment

Imperial County, a part of California along the borders of Arizona and Mexico, has an unemployment rate of 28% - the highest in the nation - and a population that is 76.8% Hispanic and 32.2% foreign-born. For some reason Imperial County doesn't seem to be benefiting from all that diversity that the media tells us the United States will need if we are to survive as a major economic power in the 21st century.

Overall, 41% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Obama's performance as president

About 270 metric tons of illegal bush meat could be passing through one of Europe's busiest airports each year

Researchers say the illicit trade could pose a risk to human or animal health and increase the demand for meat from threatened species. The figure is based on seizures from searches carried out at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. An international team of researchers estimated that about five metric tons of bushmeat per week is smuggled in personal baggage through Paris Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport. During the 17-day study, a total of 134 passengers arriving on 29 flights from 14 African nations were searched. Nine people were found to be carrying bushmeat, which had a combined mass of 188kg. In total, 11 species were found - including two types of primates, two kinds of crocodiles and three rodent species - four of which were listed as protected species.

Nigerian immigrants in Staten Island involved in ripping off American soldiers

More than 30 people, many of them Nigerian immigrants now living on Staten Island, have been arrested. About half of those in custody were involved in ripping off soldiers, officials said. Others allegedly stole from citizens living and working in the United States. Victims stretched from New York to Montana, Philadelphia to Atlanta. Some of the stolen millions is believed to have been sent overseas to Nigeria. Prosecutors said the ring called itself "BRO" after the names of the three alleged ringleaders: Kazeem Badru, Ganiu Rilwan and Rilwan Okoronkwo. All face enterprise corruption counts which if convicted could carry up to 25 years in prison.

Pinal County Sheriff: Mexican drug cartels now control parts of Arizona

The recent shooting of 2 men could be the result of the ongoing battle between Mexican drug cartels now spilling over deep into Arizona. Pinal County investigators say an area known as the smuggling corridor now stretches from Mexico's border to metro Phoenix. The area - once an area for family hiking and off road vehicles - has government signs warning residents of the drug and human smugglers. Night vision cameras have photographed military armed cartel members delivering drugs to vehicles along Highway 8.

A new test to diagnose diabetes, recommended by the American Diabetes Association, may not work well in African Americans

A study shows that black and white Americans have different amounts of the blood component measured by the test. That component, called hemoglobin A1c, is formed when blood sugar comes into contact with hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that make our blood red. That means hemoglobin A1c can act like a dipstick for blood sugar, which is elevated in diabetics. Because too much blood sugar is harmful to our organs, an elevated level of the protein suggests a high risk of suffering diabetes-related complications, like kidney or eye disease. While scientists knew that black people tended to have higher levels of hemoglobin A1c, most thought it was simply a matter of higher blood sugar levels. But according to the new findings, based on a representative sample of Americans without diabetes, black people have consistently more hemoglobin A1c than whites, even when there is no difference in blood sugar, obesity and other factors.

Racial-ethnic groups living in a similar environment and with access to universal healthcare differed strikingly in their cardiovascular risk profiles

Chinese people have the most favorable cardiovascular risk profile, followed by whites, South Asians and then blacks. Moreover, diabetes occurred earlier in South Asian men and women, and black women than in people of white or Chinese origin. A similar racial-ethnic gradient was observed in the prevalence of heart disease (3.2% in Chinese to a high of 5.2% in South Asians) and stroke (0.6% in Chinese to a high of 1.7% in South Asians).

Jews were disproportionately represented in the dreaded political police, the Cheka, as well as in Stalin’s repressive apparatus in the 1930s

Leon Trotsky, Yakov Sverdlov, Grigory Zinoviev, Lev Kamenev and so many early Bolsheviks who helped Lenin take power in 1917 and ran his repressive regime were Jewish and so were some of the bloodiest figures in the political police, such as Yakov Yurovsky, who carried out the execution of Tsar Nicholas II and his family; Rozalia Zamlyachka, under whose political command tens of thousands of White Army officers were drowned in Crimea; and Genrikh Yagoda, the odious head of Stalin’s NKVD in the 1930s.

A judge has ordered a 13-year-old African-American convicted of murdering a woman during a robbery to remain in juvenile detention until he turns 21

Judge Sheila Gibson gave Demarco Harris a blended sentence. The Detroit teen, who committed the crime when he was 12, will be re-evaluated by the court after his 21st birthday. Depending on the court's findings, Harris will either be released from custody or sentenced as an adult to life in prison without the possibility of parole. If Harris is convicted of a felony while he is in custody, he will automatically be sentenced as an adult to life in prison. Harris was found guilty of murdering Trisha Babcock during a robbery. The 24-year-old woman was shot to death inside her parked car in Detroit on August 1, 2009.

Police say a South African man who wanted to watch a World Cup match instead of a religious program was beaten to death by his family

David Makoeya, a 61-year-old man from the small village of Makweya, Limpopo province, fought with his wife and two children for the remote control because he wanted to watch Germany play Australia in the World Cup. The others, however, wanted to watch a gospel show. Makoeya got up to change the channel by hand after being refused the remote control and was attacked by his 68-year-old wife Francina and two children, 36-year-old son Collin and 23-year-old daughter Lebogang. It appears they banged his head against the wall. They phoned the police only after he was badly injured, but by the time the police arrived the man was already dead.

Jewish senator wants Obama to have control over the Internet

The federal government would have absolute power to shut down the Internet under the terms of a new US Senate bill being pushed by Joe Lieberman, legislation which would hand President Obama a figurative kill switch to seize control of the World Wide Web in response to a Homeland Security directive. Lieberman has been pushing for government regulation of the Internet for years under the guise of cybersecurity, but this new bill goes even further in handing emergency powers over to the feds which could be used to silence free speech under the pretext of a national emergency.

Man forced to marry cow that he had sex with in Indonesia

A Balinese teenager captured naked in the act of having sex with a cow claims he believed the animal was a young and beautiful girl. The young man is Ngurah Alit, 18, an unemployed youth from the seaside village of Yeh Embang in Jembrana. Village head Ida Bagus Legawa stated that a villager, identified as Gusti Ngurah Dinar, caught Alit committing bestiality. A shocked Dinar escorted Alit to the village office for questioning, where he stated that he believed the cow was a young and beautiful girl. As is usual in such situations — this is the second recorded instance of cow rape in Bali in about two years — the animal will be drowned at sea in a Pecaruan cleansing ceremony. In 2008, Nengah Sutarya, 70, was caught in the act of having sex with a cow that he also said had tempted him by claiming to be a virgin girl. That cow was drowned because villagers believed the old man had impregnated the animal.

Even Jews don't like Jews

A group of ultra-Orthodox Israeli parents of European origin are facing jail for refusing to obey a court ruling ordering them to let their daughters study with Jewish girls of Middle Eastern descent. Israel's supreme court has threatened the parents with jail in a move likened by one Israeli newspaper to America's use of troops to enforce desegregation in the 1950s. The case involves around 40 couples who belong to the strictly-observant Slonim Hassidic sect of Ashkenazi Jewry, whose roots are in eastern and central Europe. The parents, who live in the West Bank settlement of Immanuel, are refusing to let their daughters study at the Beit Yaakov girls' school alongside girls of Sephardi origin, those who originate from North Africa or Asia. When Israel's supreme court ruled in August 2009 that Sephardi girls must be allowed to attend the same classes as the Ashkenazis, parents of 74 children took them out and set up ad hoc lessons elsewhere in the settlement. Aliza Lagon, mother of two girls, told army radio she and her husband would both go to jail, leaving their daughters and two younger children in the care of a friend. Ultra-Orthodox supporters of the defiant families vowed to hold a mass demonstration in Jerusalem and to accompany the errant parents to a local police station from where they would be taken to jail. Deputy education minister Meir Porush, a member of the ultra-Orthodox Ashkenazi party United Torah Judaism (UTJ), is due to meet President Shimon Peres to ask for a presidential pardon for the parents. The Slonim parents say their objections are not racist but based on differences in religious observance between the Ashkenazi and Sephardi traditions.

More than $300m of health funding to Zambia's government is being suspended by the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria

It said it was concerned about corruption in connection with one or more grants to the health ministry. It is not the first time Zambia has lost aid amid corruption claims: Sweden and the Netherlands stopped health aid and the EU halted road-building funds. The decision will be a big blow to the government which depends on aid to treat HIV/AIDS. The Global Fund also suspended assistance to Uganda in the past for serious mismanagement of its funds. Its funding, which comes from government and private sources, is directed at the world's poorest nations. Many of them are in sub-Saharan Africa, where corruption is widespread and there is a tacit but reluctant acceptance that some money is bound to go missing. But in the case of Zambia, warnings to the government to get its house in order have been ignored. The European Union has withdrawn some funding to Zambia for road-building because of corruption and the Netherlands and Sweden halted $30m of direct aid for the Zambian health ministry because money was disappearing into the pockets of officials.

Jonathan Pollard is a hero in Israel

New poll shows that only 24% of the nation's voters strongly approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president

Forty-four percent (44%) of voters strongly disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20. Forty-eight percent (48%) of Democrats strongly approve while 75% of Republicans strongly disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 12% strongly approve and 52% strongly disapprove. Only 30% of voters gave President Obama good or excellent marks for handling the oil spill. Forty-five percent (45%) said he was doing a poor job. Most voters (57%) still favor offshore oil drilling. On another topic, most Americans (53%) continue to believe the bailout of General Motors and Chrysler was a bad idea. Overall, 42% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance and 57% now disapprove. Those are the lowest ratings yet recorded for this president.

The states with thriving educational systems are generally northern, predominately white, and with relatively few immigrants

If you want your children to get a good education then send them to schools in places such as the New England states, North Dakota, and Minnesota and avoid states with large black and/or Hispanic populations such as California, Mississippi, Alabama, Nevada and New Mexico. Together, almost 60% of California's school population is made up of Hispanics and African Americans - groups that generally have a much lower rate of student achievement than whites and Asians.

Was King Tut European?

Recently-leaked DNA test results prove ancient Egyptian royal Pharaoh Tutankhamen, aka King Tut, is 99.6% Western European. Historian Arthur Kemp took the DNA results and found that Tut was a 99.6% match with the R1b haplogroup. The R1b haplogroup is the most common Y-chromosome haplogroup in Europe reaching its highest concentrations in Ireland, Scotland, western England and the European Atlantic seaboard.

Mexican gunmen killed 10 police officers and injured several more in Michoacan state while 17 prisoners were killed in a jail in Sinaloa state

Federal police forces are conducting ground and air searches for the perpetrators of the attack on the officers in the city of Zitacuaro. The police were traveling from Michoacan state toward Mexico City when their convoy was ambushed. Hours after that incident, 17 inmates were killed in a prison riot in the city of Mazatlan. Two police officers were wounded. Violence in the region is reaching new highs, causing residents of cities such as Ciudad Juarez, which borders El Paso, to abandon their homes and their cities. About 25% of homes in Ciudad Juarez are abandoned. Recently, Mexican officials found 20 people shot dead in Ciudad Madero in Tamaulipas state, and criminals killed 19 people in an execution-style attack at a drug rehabilitation center in the northern state of Chihuahua. More than 22,000 people have been killed in Mexico in violence related to organized crime since December 2006. Michoacan, a state in central Mexico west of the capital, is the home base for the La Familia drug gang and was the site of a grenade attack that killed eight people during an Independence Day celebration in 2008.

Somali Islamic militants have threatened football fans they will be publicly flogged - or worse - if they are caught watching the World Cup on TV

Gangs of Islamists are reported to be patrolling the areas they control looking for people watching games. Dedicated fans are watching matches in secret, or in the few areas controlled by government forces. Islamic militants have already killed two people as they attacked a house where people were watching a game. Militant group Hizbul-Islam also arrested 10 others at the house north-east of the capital Mogadishu where fans were watching the game between Argentina and Nigeria.

Belgian election win for Flemish party that wants to split nation

The Flemish separatist N-VA party which wants to divide Belgium is on course to win the most seats in parliamentary elections. With 86% of the votes counted, the interior ministry predicted the New Flemish Alliance, which wants to gradually split the country between Dutch-speaking Flanders and French-speaking Wallonia, would win 28 of the 150 seats in the lower house of parliament, compared with just eight now. That would narrowly push the mainly French-speaking Socialists into second place. Heavy losses were expected for the Christian Democrats and the Liberals.

Beacons of peace are New Zealand - which tops the index - Iceland, Japan, Austria, Norway, Ireland, Denmark, Luxembourg, Finland and Sweden. The United States ranks 85th, below Cuba and China and just ahead of Angola.

Oxytocin helps soldiers to like each other and hate the enemy

Soldiers form loyal groups fighting and dying for each other because they have the same instincts that cause mothers to ferociously protect their newborns, a study suggests. Researchers have found that in the heat of battle they have the same chemicals running through their bloodstreams as protective mothers, meaning they develop incredibly strong bonds with each other but become extremely aggressive to outsiders. The effect resolves around the hormone oxytocin which is released at times of stress and when people socialize with each other. But the scientists have found that this chemical, often referred to as the love or bonding hormone, also makes them – like mothers – incredibly aggressive to outsiders. Using a computer simulation game they found that volunteers given a spray of the hormone bonded more quickly and deeply with their own group but became much more hostile to outsiders. Oxytocin makes people kinder to their own groups but more aggressive to those outside.

Women really do have a preference for men who are attached

In a study, researchers have found that 90% of women questioned were interested in a man when told he was in a relationship, compared to 59% when told the same man was single. Men, on the other hand, expressed no preference about whether a woman was in a relationship or not.

A £3.2 million award for excellence in African leadership has failed to find a winner for a second year running

To win the Mo Ibrahim Prize, an African head of state must have been democratically elected, avoided corruption allegations while in office, and stood down at the end of their term or when they were voted out. It is the richest annually-awarded international prize. Mo Ibrahim, a British-Sudanese mobile phone billionaire, set up the award in 2007 to honor African heads of state who step down when they should, run democratic elections and safeguard their national exchequers from corruption. Winners are given £3.2 million spread over 10 years and then £130,000 a year for life to support them after they leave office.

Immigration and population replacement in Australia

Frank Salter writes that Anglo Australians, still almost 70% of the Australian population, are presently being displaced disproportionately in the professions and in senior managerial positions by Asian immigrants and their children. The situation is dramatic at selective schools which are the high road to university and the professions. Ethnocentrism is not restricted to whites and evidence is emerging that immigrant communities harbor invidious attitude towards white Australians, disparaging their culture and the legitimacy of their central place in national identity.

Britain's population has reached nearly 660 residents per square mile

Britain's predicted population increase to 70 million by 2029 will put unsustainable pressure on housing, schools and hospitals as well as natural resources such as food and water. This population growth would also cause huge rises in pollution and waste. The number of people in Britain shot up by more than 3 million under the 13 years of Labor government rule. Around 70% of the increase was due to immigration – either directly through new arrivals or their children. The population of Britain is now 61,398,000 – up by 3,084,200 since 1997. Britain now has one of the highest population densities in the world.

Four Mozambicans have been arrested in South Africa for murdering a white farmer and raping his teenage daughters

Four Mozambicans have been arrested in Soweto following the gruesome murder of a 50 year old farmer at his small holding near Meyerton in South Africa's Gauteng province. The men are also accused of the repeated rape of the victim's daughters aged 16 and 18. The murderers waited for the victim to return home. After the 16 year old daughter opened the door for her father, they shot him and forced their way into the house where the rapes then took place. The attackers fled with a radio, TV and the family's BMW.

Immigrant rioters in the Swedish capital, Stockholm, have burned down a school building and thrown stones at police in a second night of disturbances

The trouble began after a group of youths in a suburb with a mainly immigrant population were refused entry to a school dance. Police say up to 100 immigrant youths went on a rampage, throwing stones and setting several cars alight. Police said the immigrant rioters threw stones at the fire engines, preventing them from reaching the school building before it burned to the ground. The immigrant youths also attacked a police station. Rinkeby is home to a large number of first- and second-generation immigrants. Many of them are from Somalia, so the area is sometimes nicknamed Little Mogadishu.

The front runner in Belgium's elections is running on perhaps the ultimate in divisive proposals: the breakup of the nation

Despite its status as the home of the European Union, Belgium itself has long struggled with divisions between its 6 million Dutch-speakers and 4.5 million Francophones but until recently talk of a breakup has been limited to extremists. Now, Bart De Wever of the centrist New Flemish Alliance is pressing for exactly that. What once seemed a preposterous fantasy of the political fringes has, in the mouth of a man seen as a possible prime minister, suddenly takes on an air of plausibility. The consequences of a precedent-setting split would be felt as far away as Spain: wealthy Catalonia has engaged in a long-standing campaign for independence and Basque separatists still set off bombs in their quest for autonomy. Italy's Northern League, which is in coalition with Silvio Berlusconi's center-right party, has also advocated a split between the rich north and the impoverished south. Then there's the euro — what would happen to the European common currency if one of its founding members fell apart? Would prosperous Flanders be allowed to join but poorer Wallonia be kept out? Or would both inherit Belgium's right to the currency — even though Belgium itself now no longer meets criteria on issues like the deficit? De Wever's curtains-for-Belgium campaign finds resonance far beyond the medieval gables and cathedrals of this centuries-old city of 600,000 in the Flemish heartland. Across the nation, both Dutch-speakers and Francophones have tired of the petty linguistic squabbles that have mired government after government in political stalemate. Carving up Belgium has been a cherished dream for the far-right in Flanders, Belgium's economically dominant north, and a nightmare scenario for poorer French-speaking Wallonia. Flanders has half the unemployment of and a 25% higher per capita income than Wallonia, and Dutch-speakers have long complained that they are subsidizing the lives of their Francophone neighbors. De Wever's party is forecast to win 26% of the vote — way up from 3.2% in 2007.

A new poll shows 6.2 million Mexicans would like to move permanently to the United States if they could

Gallup compiled a list of the top 10 countries by highest projected population of potential migrants who say they would like to move to the United States. That list also includes: China (22.9 million), India (17.1 million), Nigeria (16.6 million), Ethiopia (9.2 million), Bangladesh (7.8 million), Brazil (7.7 million), Philippines (5.8 million), Vietnam (5 million), and Japanese (3.3 million). Gallup concluded that if all adults worldwide who said they would like to move to another country actually did so, the United States could see a net population gain of 60%. On the other hand, Mexico could see net population losses as high as 15%.

Race and the NBA

Britain and the European Union

According to the EU’s own tracker poll, in 1991, 57% of people in Britain said membership was a good thing, and only 13% said it was a bad thing. In addition, 47% said Britain had benefited from membership, while only 34% thought the country had not benefited. But in the most recent poll to run these questions just 28% said EU membership was a good thing for Britain, and more – 32% - a bad thing. In the same poll 34% said Britain had benefited from membership but 50% thought the country had not benefited.

Interfaith marriages fail at higher rates than same-faith marriages

According to calculations based on the American Religious Identification Survey of 2001, people who had been in mixed-religion marriages were three times more likely to be divorced or separated than those who were in same-religion marriages. Evelyn Lehrer, a professor of economics at the University of Illinois at Chicago, found that if members of two mainline Christian denominations marry, they have a one in five chance of being divorced in five years. A Catholic and a member of an evangelical denomination have a one in three chance. And a Jew and a Christian who marry have a greater than 40% chance of being divorced in five years.

Mexican police say 55 bodies have been recovered from an abandoned mine that appears to have been used as a mass grave by drugs gangs

Human remains were first discovered in the silver mine near Taxco in Guerrero state at the end of May 2010. The bodies appeared to have been thrown down a 650ft ventilation shaft over a period of time, police said. Only six have so far been identified - one was the director of a local prison. Guerrero state is a focal point for drug-related violence that has claimed more than 22,000 lives in Mexico since 2006. Police are now checking other mine shafts in the area to see if bodies have also been dumped there. Some corpses have tattoos associated with the drugs gangs, police said. Local morgues have been overwhelmed by the number of bodies. While most of the drug-related violence over the past four years has been concentrated in northern Mexico along the border with the US, other regions have not been immune. Guerrero, in the south and with a Pacific coastline, has also seen bloody turf wars for control of drug smuggling routes.

Jewish power versus free speech

Liberal journalist, Helen Thomas, is finding out that there is no free speech when it comes to criticizing the Jews.

Jewish political and economic power in the United States

Steve Sailer:
I haven't had anything to say previously about that fatal Israeli naval encounter with the Gaza-bound flotilla on May 31, 2010 … because I don't much care. Israel is not the 51st state; it’s one of a couple of hundred other countries. If Israel wants to push around the Palestinians, well, that’s their business much more than it is my business.

Unfortunately, since Jews demand that the United States support every action Israel takes, no matter how stupid and destructive, it is also our business. By giving our endorsement to Israel's violent actions against the Palestinians we end up antagonizing the Jihadists who would normally go after the Israelis and who end up coming after us instead. Let us also not forget that the Israelis have used these violent tactics against Americans as well as Muslims:
It shouldn’t have appeared unprecedented: the most obvious predecessor to Israel’s raid on the flotilla was its 1967 attack in roughly the same international waters on the USS Liberty, when the Israeli military killed 34 American seamen. Blockheadedness is the most innocent explanation that has yet been offered for Israel’s two-hour long air and sea assault on the clearly-marked American intelligence-gathering ship.

Personally, I care more about the Liberty than this Turkish-organized flotilla.

Of course, how many other Americans remember the Liberty? This event is certainly not frequently commemorated in our domestic media.

No prizes for guessing why the "American" media isn't interested in the USS Liberty. And Jewish economic power isn't just limited to the media:
If, say, as reported by the Jewish Telegraph Agency, Jews make up over 1/3rd of the 2009 Forbes 400, and if Jews make up half of the 2009 Atlantic 50 of most influential political pundits, then that implies that Jews, owing in part to their higher average cognitive functioning, should embrace greater responsibility.

Instead of viewing themselves as beleaguered victims, they should admit that they now comprise an elite within America---and that they should apply to themselves an updated version of the old cavalier concept of noblesse oblige.

The problem is that Jews will always put the interests of Israel first. What this means is that the United States now has an elite that will treat the gentile majority as cannon fodder in order to protect their co-ethnics in Israel.


'The USS Liberty': America's Most Shameful Secret

Poll rates BP oil spill response worse than Katrina

By more than a 2-to-1 margin, Americans support the pursuit of criminal charges in the nation's worst oil spill, with increasing numbers calling it a major environmental disaster. Eight in 10 criticize the way BP's handled it – and more people give the federal government's response a negative rating than did the response to Hurricane Katrina. A month and a half after the spill began, 69% in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll rate the federal response negatively. That compares with a 62% negative rating for the response to Katrina two weeks after the August 2005 hurricane. There's partisanship in views of the federal response, with Democrats less critical of the Democratic-led government. Nonetheless, even among Democrats, 56% rate the federal response negatively. That rises to 74% of independents and 81% of Republicans.

Civil servants feared inquiry into 7/7 bombings would focus negatively on Muslims in Britain

Senior civil servants warned ministers that if they ordered a public inquiry into the July 7, 2005 suicide bombings it could "focus negatively" on Britain's Muslim community. The warning was delivered in a briefing paper to Charles Clarke, the then-home secretary, as he considered whether or not to launch an inquiry into the 2005 bombings, in which 52 innocent people were killed. In the paper, Sir John Gieve, the Home Office permanent secretary, said that upsetting Muslims would be a "potential cost" of ministers agreeing to demands for a full inquiry. After receiving Sir John's paper, Mr Clarke decided not to order a public inquiry – a decision which infuriated many survivors and relatives of those killed.

Sixteen people, including two policemen, have been injured after a crush outside a South African ground hosting a World Cup warm-up game

Several fans fell under a rush of people outside the Makhulong Stadium in the Johannesburg suburb of Tembisa. Entry to the friendly between Nigeria and North Korea was free, and many more than the 10,000 capacity turned up. The first crowd surge came when the stadium gates were opened to allow fans entry. Police soon closed the gates, but when they were re-opened, a second rush occurred, with more people falling over. One policeman was seriously hurt after reportedly being crushed against a gate. He remains in a stable condition, according to the South African Police Services. The crowd was mainly made up of local South African and travelling Nigerian fans. Police said that hundreds of them were also holding photocopies of tickets and tried to break down the gates after the match had started and police had closed them.

Black flight in Dallas

Black students formed a majority in Dallas schools through the 1980s and '90s. Over the last 10 years, though, the number of black children has fallen by nearly 20,000, or about a third. Meanwhile, Hispanic children have filled their seats as the district's overall enrollment remains fairly flat at about 157,000. Now, about 41,000 black students attend DISD schools. They make up 26% of the district compared with 106,000 Hispanic children, or 68%. White students are 5% of the district. The trend seen in Dallas schools is part of a larger national move away from inner cities for many black families, but the plunge is steeper in Dallas ISD than other urban districts in Texas and is among the biggest declines nationally.

Double Standards and Anti-Western Bias

A black porn actor suspected of killing a colleague with a sword has died after jumping from a rocky hillside after a standoff with police

SWAT officers tried to talk Stephen Clancy Hill down from the hill as he clutched a sword. Police Officer Bruce Borihanh says the 34-year-old actor fell some 40 feet. Hill fled to the Chatsworth neighborhood hillside after leaving a house where he had been barricaded. He faced murder and attempted murder charges in an attack at a DVD production center. Hill attacked a colleague with a sword that was used as a film prop during a social gathering at the Ultima's studios about a week after being told he was being fired and that he would have to move out of the production facility, where he had been living, authorities said. He then turned on two others who rushed to their co-worker's defense. One of those who attempted to help, Herbert Hin Wong, 30, was killed in the attack. Hill was convicted of second-degree assault and a handgun charge in March 1999 in Maryland, according to court records.

A black man killed a kitten after the animal somehow disconnected a video game while he was playing it

Bruce Walston, 21, is facing an animal cruelty charge for killing his girlfriend's kitten by throwing it against a wall in their apartment, according to the Staunton Police Department report. Walston was arrested after his girlfriend, Bessie Hess, called cops about the incident, which occurred in front of her children. Walston told cops that he was arguing with Bessie over the cat disconnecting his video game at which time he picked up the kitten and threw it against the wall. When police arrived at the couple's home, the dead pet was laying on the front porch.

Barack Obama's half-brother was denied entry to Britain after being accused of a serious crime on an earlier visit, the Home Office has confirmed

Samson Obama, who lives in Kenya, was on his way to the presidential inauguration in January 2010 when he was stopped at East Midlands Airport. Fingerprint tests linked him to a sex attack on a British girl. He was questioned but not charged over the incident in Berkshire. A Home Office spokesman said Samson Obama was denied a visa after immigration officers noticed one of his documents was false. That led them to further inquiries. Samson Obama, who runs a mobile phone shop outside Nairobi, had been planning to make a short break in Britain on his way to Washington. He eventually took a connecting flight to the United States without formally entering Britain. A British Border Agency spokesman said in general, Britain would oppose the entry of individuals where their presence was "not conducive to the public good". Samson Obama is one of several half-siblings of the president. Barack Obama Sr left his son when he was two years old and lived most of his life in Kenya, where he fathered a number of other sons and a daughter with three other wives. He died in a car crash in 1982.

Devout Muslim males and violence

The more devout a young Muslim male, the more likely he is to resort to violence, according to a German study. The study also concluded that male supremacist views and a preference for violent videos and computer games link closely with mosque attendance among the young. The researchers discovered that a majority of mosque clergy in Germany encouraged their congregations to practice a conservative form of Islam and to preserve their ethnic roots. More than half of German-born Muslims, who make up 5% of the population, have Turkish roots. The study also found that young people who were intensely Christian were less likely to be violent than the average.

Jewish judge defends child porn collector

In his 43-year career as a federal judge, Jack B. Weinstein has come to be identified by his efforts to combat what he calls “the unnecessary cruelty of the law.” His most recent crusade is particularly striking because of the beneficiary: a man who has amassed a vast collection of child pornography. Judge Weinstein, who sits in the United States District Court in Brooklyn, has twice thrown out convictions that would have ensured that the man spend at least five years behind bars. He has pledged to break protocol and inform the next jury about the mandatory prison sentence that the charges carry. And he recently declared that the man, who is awaiting a new trial, did not need an electronic ankle bracelet because he posed “no risk to society.”

Obamacare and Michigan

In Michigan, young people ages 18-29 were more against Obamacare than any other age group, with 69% opposed. In addition, 46% of women favored Obamacare, compared with 40% of men. Among blacks, 92% favored Obamacare, according to a poll by EPIC-MRA, a Lansing polling firm.

Black-white couplings represented only about one-in-nine of the approximately 280,000 new interracial marriages in 2008

White-Hispanic couples accounted for about four-in-ten (41%) of such new marriages; white-Asian couples made up 15%; and white-black couples made up 11%. Of the 3.8 million adults who married in 2008, 9% of whites, 16% of blacks, 26% of Hispanics and 31% of Asians married someone whose race or ethnicity was different from their own. Some 22% of all black male newlyweds in 2008 married outside their race, compared with just 9% of black female newlyweds. Some 40% of Asian female newlyweds in 2008 married outside their race, compared with just 20% of Asian male newlyweds.

58% of U.S. voters say a child born to an illegal immigrant in this country should not automatically become a citizen of the United States

Also voters overwhelmingly oppose allowing illegal immigrants to be eligible for state and federal government benefits. Just nine percent (9%) say illegals should receive such benefits, but 85% say they should not. Most voters believe that the availability of government money and services draws illegal immigrants to the United States. Fifty-two percent (52%) of Democrats think children born to illegal immigrants in this country should automatically become U.S. citizens. Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and 60% of voters not affiliated with either major party disagree. Most Americans don’t believe Mexico wants to stop the illegal flow of its citizens into this country and think America’s southern neighbor should be asked to compensate U.S. taxpayers for costs incurred by illegal immigration. Even as legislators in Washington once again are talking about immigration reform, voters across the nation remain skeptical about the federal government’s role in the immigration debate. Three-out-of-four voters believe that the federal government is not doing enough to secure the nation’s borders. Fifty-six percent (56%) believe the policies of the federal government actually encourage illegal immigration. Most voters continue to say as they have for years that gaining control of the border is more important than legalizing the status of illegal immigrants. In fact, 67% now say military troops should be sent to the Mexican border to prevent illegal immigration. Arizona officials say their recent adoption of a tough immigration enforcement law is due to the federal government’s failure to enforce federal immigration policy. While President Obama, Mexican President Felipe Calderon and others have complained that the state’s law could lead to racial profiling, 58% of voters nationwide favor passage of a law like Arizona’s in their own state. Boston and Los Angeles were among the first to announce boycotts of Arizona, but 68% of Americans say it’s a bad idea for other cities or states to boycott Arizona over its new immigration law.

A Somali refugee has been sentenced for child rape in Vermont

A Somali who jumped bail and fled Vermont the night before a jury found him guilty of aggravated sexual assault on a 9-year-old girl has been sentenced to 20 years to life in prison for the assault. Ali Abdi, a Bantu refugee from Somalia, was sentenced by Vermont District Judge Patricia Zimmerman.
