Edward Snowden repeatedly reached out to the U.S. Department of Justice in search of a plea deal—and even expressed willingness to serve time in prison—but has so far received no response, the NSA whistleblower told BBC Panorama in an interview slated to air Monday night.
Longtime activist, educator, and philosopher Grace Lee Boggs passed early Monday at the age of 100. Friends and caregivers Shay Howell and Alice Jennings said in a statement about her passing that Boggs "left this life as she lived it: surrounded by books, politics, people and ideas." Boggs died peacefully in her sleep in her Detroit home.
Amid a last minute scramble, leaders from the United States and 11 other Pacific Rim countries announced Monday that they had reached agreement on a sweeping trade deal, one that critics, including US presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, say will slash standards and protections for both consumers and workers—with impacts to be felt across the globe.
During the NATO war to snatch Kosovo from Yugoslavia, DwB refused to go, because they said it would help Milosevic (the demon of the hour). By setting their borders, they refused to treat people in Serbia, in Montenegro, in Kosovo, nowhere... And yet the Greek Section did go, to Serbia, to Montenegro, to Kosovo... It was them who recorded the NATO bombing of a refugee convoy in Kosovo, and denounced the massacre, getting some TV cover (the media weren't yet as iron-controled like now). The DwB central bureaucracy in Brussels waited for a while, and the day after receiving the Nobel Award, they expelled the Greeks. What became a sensational scandal in Greece for some months, was absolutely silenced in the rest of Europe, and this after devoting whole editions to the organization as they were awarded with the Nobel. Think of it.
On the other hand, I read DwB were expelled from Lugansk because they were distributing expired drugs. A dangerous way of showing their scorn for non-NATO puppet populations.
As the national Conservative Party in the U.K. held its annual meeting in Manchester over the weekend, an anti-austerity demonstration against the ruling party's economic policies attracted not only tens of thousands of people to march peacefully... but a few police snipers to keep "watch" over those who oppose the government's gutting of the public sector.
The international aid agency whose hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan was bombed over the weekend is refusing to let the U.S. military forgo responsibility for the attack even as the Pentagon changed its story again on Monday and tried to pass blame to Afghan forces.
Некоторые произведения искусства можно назвать бессмертными. Ими восхищаются уже не одно столетие, а уровня мастерства их создателей могут достичь лишь избранные. Тем не менее, в истории создания некоторых знаменитых произведений искусства до сих пор наличествуют белые пятна. Они порождают всевозможные домыслы и вызывают ожесточённые споры в кругах специалистов.

«Портрет четы Арнольфини» — картина, породившая множество загадок
They read somewhere that "idols" had to be destroyed because they offended the only true god, and in their primitive simplicity they came to hate anything which represented ancient cultures, and in their utmost insane mind, feeling strong with a few weapons they got from their hated Europe (as they are utterly unable to invent or make anything involving technology) they have destroyed our common home, the beautiful and the time-defying architecture of our ancestors. Now after such a cowardly feat, they must be waiting to enter paradise. Hopefully the Russians will help them, and liberate humanity of this earth-scorching barbarism.
