Who are the unpeople? Human beings whose views don't matter a jot to self-styled 'democrats' in the West, even though in some cases - in fact, in most cases, they constitute the majority.

Live from Crimea, by Slavisa Pavlovic

Live from Crimea, by Slavisa Pavlovic | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Last week I spent a few days in the Crimea, where I attended the second international conference for young journalists, entitled "The Crimea - view from another angle." Over 70 journalists attended the meeting, aged less than 35 and coming from 20 countries of Europe and Asia. The goal was to inform the journalists about the situation in Crimea, on the spot, in order to rule out all negative and false stories that we have been reading since a couple of months in the Western media. Namely, some French newspapers have recently published articles describing a disastrous situation in Crimea, with empty supermarkets, with no food, saying that prices have increased, while the wages have remained the same as before, and other media published similar stories following this same pattern.

It was notorious lies, and I had the opportunity to see it by myself, other journalists have understood this too, and among them there were representatives of Serbia (Radio Television Serbia – RTS, the daily Kurir, Njuzvik) as well as the excellent team from Radio Television of Republika Srpska [Serb entity in Bosnia and Herzegovina], with whom I made some inquiries, but there were also journalists from Greece, Belgium, Kyrgyzstan.

Male Spider Destroys Female Genitalia to Prevent Future Mating

Male Spider Destroys Female Genitalia to Prevent Future Mating | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Some orb-weaving spiders secure their fatherhood by mutilating their partners’ genitalia—the first such discovery in nature, a new study says.

 

The behavior, which guarantees that the male will father all of her offspring, is the first to suggest that males evolve behaviors to maim external parts of the female genitalia. Published November 5, 2015 in Current Biology, the discovery also adds further nuance to the theory of sexual selection, which holds that males and females within a species compete for opportunities to mate—even if it kills them.


“All the time, we’re discovering [such] new, astonishing adaptations,” says Jutta Schneider, a biologist at the University of Hamburg who wasn’t involved in the study but has collaborated with some of its authors. “This competition has enormous power.”


Spiders in particular get freaky in the pursuit of sexual success, deploying everything from cannibalism to self-castration to land a mate. Castrated' Spiders Are Better Fighters, Study Says.
