(Farewell and goodbye to my readers loyally following this blog over the years.)
As a long-lasting legacy of bloody General Aung San the father of so-called people-leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma by then was under long years of Socialist rule and as a result Burma was so fucking ruined we Burmese were basically starving.
To continue on with my cousin’s story, he couldn’t eat that an egg a day ration and always brought the eggs back home for his two young kids. Every night his wife boiled the egg and cut it and gave each half to their half-starving kids.

|Famous Burmese nationalist MP U Aung Thaung.|
The new sanctions, announced Friday, come days before President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit the Southeast Asian country, also known as Burma, as part of a gathering of regional leaders.
The White House said late Thursday that Mr. Obama spoke by telephone with Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, a leading opposition figure who was targeted in attacks, as well as President Thein Sein.
The new sanctions will require U.S.-connected firms and individuals to freeze the assets of Aung Thaung, a current member of Myanmar's lower house of parliament and former industry minister and army officer.
The U.S. Treasury Department in a statement blamed Aung Thaung for working to undermine recent economic and political changes in Myanmar and said he has been implicated in previous attacks on the country's democratic opposition. Myanmar embassy staff in Washington didn't immediately respond to a request for comment on the sanctions.

In the vision, children as young as six years old call for violent action against non-Muslims and to reject Australia and its values. Video reveals shocking radicalisation of Australian Muslim children. A terror risk expert says it's brainwashing, aimed at creating violent extremists. The video shows four Australian children, aged six to 13, calling for an end to our way of life.
"These are disturbing and shocking images and they do raise concerns about the welfare of the four young boys who are identified in the video,” Family and Community Services Minister Gabrielle Upton said.

Colgate bought Laser Brand Toothpaste for around $100 million, one of the people said. The acquisition is one of the largest investments from an American company in Myanmar since economic sanctions against the country were first eased in 2012, ending the Southeast Asian country's six decades of isolation under military rule.
Colgate follows General Electric, Coca-Cola and Gap Inc., all of whom have restarted operations in Myanmar over the past two years, with Coca-Cola pledging more than $200 million in investment there over the next five years.

|MSF Ebola Doctor Craig Spencer.|
Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said 'Self-quarantine is neither warranted nor recommended when a person is not displaying Ebola-like symptoms' and insisted Dr Spencer had followed Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) protocols since his return from Africa.
MSF told MailOnline contrary to reports they are not considering a mandatory quarantine for healthcare workers returning from West Africa even though, since March, three MSF international staff members have been infected with deadly Ebola.
New York's Ebola-stricken doctor was told by the charity that he worked for that he did not have to self-quarantine after returning from an Ebola-ravaged country. Dr Craig Spencer returned to the U.S. on October 17 from Ebola 'hot zone' Guinea where he was treating patients with non-profit group, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF).

|Burmese protesting in NYC against Thai police injustice.|
An investigation which came out of the gate “focusing on migrant laborers” before moving on to a British friend of the deceased and “especially Rohingya” and even influential “mafia figures” for a time, eventually came full circle to three migrant laborers implicated by no more than circumstantial evidence, an alleged DNA hit and a now-recanted confession.
Along the way the investigation accumulated numerous accounts of witness torture, bribery, bizarre claims and threats. However, after so many missteps, questionable statements and by all appearances a totally shambolic investigation, there was one big problem for the police who’ve been under intense pressure to show results: No one bought it.
|Two Burmese were tortured by the Bengali-Muslim|
interpreter and Thai policemen to confesssion.
A lawyer from the Burmese embassy said Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Htun, who are jointly accused of bludgeoning Hannah Witheridge, 23, and David Miller, 24, to death, told him they were tortured into confessing.
The tourists were found dead at a rocky alcove on September 15 and police last week arrested the two migrant workers, both 21, announcing soon after they had admitted responsibility for the killings.
The bodies of Hannah Witheridge, 23, and David Miller, 24, were found on September 15. Post mortems found Miss Witheridge died from head wounds while Mr Miller suffered blows to the head and drowned. But comments by Burmese lawyer Aung Myo Thant to Burmese media, translated by the news website Coconuts Bangkok, threw doubt on their confessions.

Output in Myanmar will rise by 12 percent to 28,000 metric tons next year, giving it 10 percent of the global market, according to ITRI Ltd., a St. Albans, England-based industry group. Production will keep increasing partly because Myanmar Pongpipat Co. plans to expand its southern Heinda mine, Managing Director Kriangkrai Chavaltanpipat said in an interview.
Tin retreated 13 percent on the London Metal Exchange this year, the biggest loser on the bourse, as supplies increased even after Indonesia tightened rules on exports. The glut will persist through 2016, with rising shipments from Myanmar and elsewhere thwarting Indonesia’s efforts to raise prices, according to Macquarie Group Ltd.

|Sinovel Wind Stole wind turbine code from AMSC.|
After a three-hour trial, Dejan Karabasevic, 38, was sentenced to one year in jail and two years probation for passing proprietary turbine control software to Sinovel Wind Group Co., based in Beijing.
Karabasevic, who worked in American Superconductor’s subsidiary in Austria, was also ordered by Klagenfurt district court officials to pay his former employer roughly $270,000 in damages. “I made the biggest mistake of my life,’’ Karabasevic said before the jury began deliberations, “and I am deeply sorry for it.’’

|So-called Rohingyas or Bengali-Muslim illegals are so|
violent Burmese need armed-escort to enter their camps.
During the initial tests of the new system over 80 percent of the Bengali Muslims who applied were rejected because they did not have the required documents to prove that their families had lived in Burma for generations.
The UN, the United States and most Moslem countries have been pressuring Burma to make the so-called Rohingya in Burma citizens. This would, according to the foreign critics, halt the violence between Moslems and Buddhists in Burma. That’s unlikely as far as the Burmese are concerned.

Hong Kong has one of the world's biggest wealth gaps and its highest real-estate prices. Years of stagnant wage growth have created deep frustration among students and the middle class.
One target of their frustration is the city's tycoons, a handful of families and colonial era conglomerates that control most of the real estate, many of the retailers and nearly all of the utilities and buses.
"Tycoons don't need sympathy, but they're between a rock and a hard place," said Jean-Pierre Lehmann, a visiting professor in the University of Hong Kong's business and economics program. "Hong Kong has a number of critical problems, such as inequality, and the tycoons are seen as being an emblem of that."
Lawmakers this week urged Obama to bar people from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea from entering the United States. Obama has said he is not philosophically opposed to travel bans, but in his weekly address made it clear that he is not leaning toward them.
“We can’t just cut ourselves off from West Africa,” Obama said, explaining it would make it harder to move health workers and supplies into the region, and would motivate people trying to get out the region to evade screening, making it harder to track cases.

The actual number of missing people is not known nor has the government taken any steps over years to bring the families to justice. According to International Voice for Baluch Missing persons 18,000 persons went missing in the 2001-2013, out whom 2000 were killed and their bodies were found mutilated on lone streets.
Amid all these intense situations comes news of human meat being served in Quetta, Baluchistan. In a recent revelation that was shunned by Pakistani Army and no media was allowed to publish the news, in many small restaurants human meat was being served.
Hannan Traders supplied meat to these restaurants whose owner, Asghar Hannan also supplied meat at the army stationed in Quetta. The revelation came to be noticed when people from these restaurants started complaining about the meat that was being served was different from usual meat, with difficulty to eat and smelt foul.
Klaas Otto, head of the No Surrender motorcycle club, told Dutch broadcasters that three members from the cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Breda recently joined the fight outside Mosul in northern Iraq, Agence France-Presse said.
A photo on a Dutch-Kurdish Twitter account showed one of the men — a heavily tattooed Dutchman named Ron — clad in military garb, holding a Kalashnikov assault rifle and flashing the “victory” sign as he sits with a Kurdish comrade in a fortified bunker. “Ron from The Netherlands has joined the Kurds to exterminate the rodents of [ISIS],” text with the photo reads.
No Surrender is one of the Netherlands’ biggest motorcycle clubs, with membership rivaling that of the Dutch Hells Angels’ chapter. And, unlike Dutch citizens who might side with ISIS in the fight, the bikers would face no punishment from the Dutch government — because they are not committing a crime.

Washington and its media stenographers won’t tell you this, lest they look intolerant, but Islamic burial rituals are a key reason why health officials can’t contain the spread of the deadly disease in West Africa.
Many of the victims of Ebola in the three hot-spot nations there — Sierra Leone and Guinea, as well as neighboring Liberia — are Muslim. Roughly 73% of Sierra Leone’s and about 85% of Guinea’s people are Muslim. Islam, moreover, is practiced by more than 13% of Liberians.

|Hotel Without A Holy Bible.|
But the chain, which runs 500 hotels, said the country was becoming increasingly multicultural and it had taken the action for ‘diversity reasons’. It said the policy was implemented ‘in order not to discriminate against any religion’ – despite having had no complaints from guests.
Bibles were taken away at the same time as a refurbishment of its rooms, removing drawers where they were kept. The Bibles, which were provided free by the Gideon Society, have been retained and are stored behind reception for guests to borrow on request, the company says.

In 1994, I was wandering around the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul when a bomb went off in the next street. At first I thought a cooking stove had blown up, but then heavily armed police and soldiers poured into the building and shouted at us to leave. Later in the day, I discovered that two people had been killed and many others injured. It was my first visit to Turkey, and a shocking introduction to the armed conflict between the Turkish government and the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
Last year, the PKK's imprisoned leader, Abdullah Ocalan, called for a ceasefire. By then, the conflict had been going for almost 30 years and killed around 42,000 people; most of the dead were Kurdish insurgents or civilians but the fatalities included more than 6,500 members of the Turkish security forces.
This is the background to the otherwise bewildering behaviour of Turkey, which has tanks stationed within sight of the besieged Syrian town of Kobani. Last week, as mainly Kurdish fighters fought street battles with Islamic State, also known as Isis, Turkish forces watched and did nothing.

Just after 4pm on September 25, American Colleen Hufford, a 54-year-old grandmother and worker at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma, was standing in the doorway of the front office in the food processing facility's main building when Alton Nolen, a co-worker who had just been suspended over an argument with another colleague, violently grabbed her from behind.
As horrified employees watched, Nolen, a 30-year-old production line worker with a criminal history, savagely sawed at Hufford's throat with a large kitchen knife he had gone home to retrieve, severing her head.
Nolen then went after Traci Johnson, a 43-year-old co-worker, viciously slashing her face and her throat in an attempt to decapitate her, too. But his bloody rampage came to an abrupt end when he was shot and wounded by the company's top executive, who also happens to be a reserve deputy sheriff. Johnson, while severely wounded, survived.

The sermon, republished in full below, calls for a war on Islam and Muslims worldwide. Lewis says a “holy crusade” against Islam is needed to “exterminate it utterly and absolutely.”
I thought that maybe I’d start with a rendition of Paul McCartney’s plaintive masterpiece “Yesterday”… “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away. Now it looks as though they’re here to stay, oh I believe in yesterday” – but then I thought, too romantic. Perhaps the story of Chicken Little – “The sky is falling. The sky is falling” and I thought, getting closer but too childish.

A video has surfaced online that appears to show the beheading of British captive Alan Henning by a purported member of the terror group ISIS, who then threatens the life of an American hostage.
“I am Alan Henning. Because of our Parliament’s decision to attack the Islamic State [ISIS], I, as a member of the British public, will now pay the price for that decision,” Henning says in the video, before his apparent executioner speaks.

Coalition backbenchers Cory Bernardi and George Christensen have said they believe the burka should be removed at security checkpoints coming into the building. Speaker of the House Bronwyn Bishop and Senate President Stephen Parry are seeking advice from security agencies but are yet to make a decision.
Mr Abbott said Parliament House had to be treated as a secure building. "It is perfectly appropriate that in certain circumstances people be required to show their face. There can't be one rule for one form of attire and a different rule for another form of attire," he said.

To most Moslems it’s perfectly natural to hate Jews and insist that Israel should not exist. These are indeed alien concepts to most Westerners and non-Moslems. To get a better idea of where Moslems are coming from consider the fact (based on opinion surveys of Moslems) that most Moslems see themselves as Moslems first, and feel that the non-Moslem world is out to get them.
The intense hatred of Israel is better understood if you keep in mind some key elements of Islamic history. First, Islam is a very intolerant religion. Their scripture calls for any Moslem who converts to another religion be killed.

|Tanaka Masahico; Chief of JICA in Burma.|
This has reopened the way for Myanmar to access large volumes of highly concessional financing from these development agencies, along with full-scale technical advice and capacity building support.
Behind all this was an extraordinary effort by Japan, such as arranging short-term loans to clear Myanmar’s overdue payments not just to JICA but also ADB and the World Bank, as well as forgiving a large portion of the total debt of about 500 billion yen (over US$5 billion) owed to Japan.
Since then, Japan has committed an equivalent of over $700 million (or about 1.3 percent of Myanmar’s GDP) in new assistance in the last fiscal year alone. Of that amount, about $500 million was concessional loans (at a mere 0.01 percent interest per year) that will support much-needed infrastructure investment in electricity generation, regional infrastructure, and the development of the Thilawa industrial zone. Another $200 million, in grant aid and technical assistance will support health, disaster prevention, and agriculture, among others. More is being planned for the new fiscal year, which started in April, and beyond.

(News article direct from the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS on 25 September 2014.)
Islamic terrorists detained Samira Salih al-Nuaimi earlier this month after she allegedly posted messages on Facebook condemning the terrorists for destroying religious sites. She was convicted of apostasy in a self-styled Islamic court and publically executed, the U.N. confirmed Thursday.
BAGHDAD — Militants with the Islamic State group publicly killed a human rights lawyer in the Iraqi city of Mosul after finding her guilty of apostasy in a self-styled Islamic court, the United Nations said Thursday.
Samira Salih al-Nuaimi was seized from her home on Sept. 17 after allegedly posting messages on Facebook that were critical of the militants' destruction of religious sites in Mosul. Her Facebook page appears to have been removed since her death.

|Tony Abbott addressing UN on fighting ISIS.|
Mr Abbott's address came as US and Arab aircraft resumed bombing raids against IS targets in Syria, with some strikes targeting oil fields held by the group, Pentagon officials said.
"To use this term [Islamic State] is to dignify a death cult; a death cult that, in declaring itself a caliphate, has declared war on the world," he told the Security Council. "Countries do need to work together to defeat it because about 80 countries have citizens fighting with ISIL and every country is a potential target."
In a press conference following his UN appearance, Mr Abbott said he had spoken with US president Barack Obama and a final decision on committing Australian forces was not far away.

At the same time, George Soros, one of the earliest investors in Myanmar's economy and even more so its social reform, said he was troubled by the slowdown in reforms ahead of next year's elections. Still, he believes multinational companies must be involved in one of Southeast Asia's last untapped areas.
Soe Thane, Myanmar's Coordinating Minister for Economic Development, oversees roughly 11 different economic ministries. The former commander of the Myanmar Navy likened the reform process to driving along a potholed street.

The 18-year-old, whose passport was cancelled a week ago on security grounds, was killed on Tuesday evening, having arrived at a police station on the outskirts of the city to attend a "routine" interview.
It came as tougher counter-terrorism laws were introduced to Australia's parliament on Wednesday to combat the threat of foreign fighters, with a proposal to criminalise travel to known terror hotspots without a legitimate reason.
Terror suspect Abdul Numan Haider was met by two members of the Joint Counter Terrorism Team and greeted them with a handshake before pulling out a knife and attacking both men, with one stabbed in the head, neck and stomach.

|Crusaders are coming back?|
The hero’s wise adviser responds, “So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide.” The old man continues, “There are other forces at work in this world … besides the will of evil.” Some events, he adds, are “meant” to be, “And that is an encouraging thought.”
Indeed it is. Perhaps, today, we are meant to live in these times. Perhaps right here, right now, we are meant to be tested. Maybe we are meant to have faith that other forces are at work in this world, that we are meant to rediscover our strength and our survival skills.
And so the question: can we, the people of the West, be brought to failure despite our enormous cultural and spiritual legacy? Three thousand years of history look down upon us: does this generation wish to be remembered for not having had the strength to look danger squarely in the eye? For having failed to harness our latent strength in our own defense?

|Guards storming the Goulburn Jail took over by Muslims.|
With shouts of “Allah Akbar”, prisoners armed with homemade weapons threatened guards and smashed through an internal fence at the state’s toughest jail, which was in lockdown yesterday.
Police investigations are continuing today. Tensions have been running high in the prison system as federal and NSW police step up their surveillance of suspected terrorists and any of their associates inside and outside prisons after the country’s terror alert was raised to high.
|"Rabie Shehada" The Vampire Of Jihad.|
In a video he recently posted online, Shehada earnestly and quite proudly explained: “I swear we are a people who love death for the sake of God just as you love to live. I swear we are a people who love drinking blood. We came to slaughter you.”
Let it never be said that Shehada ever suppressed his charm. This particular ISIS vampire has come a long way from studying mechanical engineering at a college in Nazareth Illit in Israel.
The slaughter house and Muslim couple’s own house was also burned down to the ground as the more-than-300 strong enraged Buddhist mob attacked the Muslim properties as the news of the vicious assault on Buddhist woman spread.
Myit-Chay is a town-like large village near the Pa-khoke-ku town. It has more than one thousand Burmese-Buddhist households but its economy is being controlled by about forty households of rich Muslims mainly thriving on illegal cattle slaughtering and beef wholesale businesses serving the Buddhist town.

|Evil Muslim behind foiled Sydney-Beheading plot.|
Mohammad Ali Baryalei is believed to be the most senior Australian member of the terrorist group Islamic State, having travelled to Syria in April last year. Law enforcement authorities believe he has recruited at least half of the 60 Australians now fighting with Islamic State, also known as ISIL, in Iraq and Syria.
He is reported to have a trusted position in the operational command of the al-Qaeda-linked group. Police will allege that the 33-year-old was intercepted in a telephone conversation with Sydney man Omarjan Azari where plans were outlined to kidnap a stranger in Sydney, behead them on camera and post the footage online.
Before travelling to Syria, Mr Baryalei was a leader in the "Street Dawah" movement in which members proselytised on the streets of Sydney and tried to convert Australians to Islam. Former Street Dawah friend Abdul Salam Mahmoud, who is now in Syria undertaking humanitarian work, said Mr Baryalei was someone he looked to as a leader.

|Largest counter-terrorism operation is underway in Sydney.|
7News reporter Robert Ovadia has received information about an alleged plot to kidnap a random person from the streets of Martin Place in Sydney's CBD, execute them by beheading. The alleged intention was to film the act and then post it to social media, with the victim's body draped in an Islamic State flag.
The extent of that plot, whether that is just this individual put before the court this morning or whether it will include some of the other 15 arrested this morning remains to be seen.
For the Yazidi and other minority girls and women who are being held in secret prisons in Mosul as well as in other locations, life has become an endless nightmare of rapes and beatings.
Cell phone calls the women have been able to make to their families have documented the horror of life for these women and girls as young as the age of 14 who have been abducted by militants from the Islamic State. Not only have these calls been the source of information about their dire condition, but they have been used as well as a form of torture.

Obama used the word “war” only once, but ISIS is all about war—an Islamic holy war that has been waged since 632 AD. The one person neither named, nor blamed is the so-called prophet, Mohammad, yet everything being done by the jihadists today is being done in his name.
In his memoir, “Dreams from my Father”, Obama, in the preface to its second edition, wrote: “Nor do I pretend to understand the stark nihilism that drove the terrorists that day (9/11) and that drives their brethren still. My powers of empathy, my ability to reach into another’s heart, cannot penetrate the blank stares of those who would murder innocents with abstract, serene satisfaction.” And therein is the problem that he, as President, and we as citizens must address.

The core of the brigade are the twenty cyber protection teams. Each contains 39 military and civilian network security experts. To provide the military personnel the army has created a special MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) so qualified personnel can make a career of this work.
This MOS (25D, Cyber Network Defender) is open to all qualified military personnel. Currently there are 700 troops with the 25D MOS and more are being sought. The 25Ds are in high demand, and they are supplemented by qualified civilians, who are more expensive. Since highly skilled 25Ds will always be tempted to leave the army and take better paying civilian jobs the army will, as it does with other specialists (like Special Forces troops) offer big cash reenlistment bonuses to 25Ds they want to keep.

The early morning of September 11, 2001 in America was late night in Dee Why of Sydney where I had been living for many years since December 1988. In the year of 2001 I was already trading ASX-200 Share Price Index (SPI) at SFE (Sydney Futures Exchange) for nearly three years.
It was a Tuesday and that night I couldn’t sleep early and ending up lying comfy on the couch and watching a TV drama on ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) TV. Then just before midnight the TV screen suddenly started displaying “Breaking news: Passenger jet plane crashed into one of the World Trade Centre twin towers in New York City.” at the bottom of the TV screen.
Very soon the regular program was abruptly stopped and the horrific scenes of a large two-turbine-engine Boeing plane entering the North Tower like a hot knife into a block of butter was being repeatedly shown.

A 7.30 investigation has uncovered Australia's most senior member of the Islamic State militant group, who authorities say has funnelled scores of Australian fighters onto the frontline of the wars in Syria and Iraq.
Australian authorities say 33-year-old jihadist Mohammad Ali Baryalei, from Sydney, has a trusted position in Islamic State (IS) operational command and has facilitated the recruitment of at least half of the 60 Australians currently fighting in the wars.
7.30 has been told Baryalei, an Afghan refugee and former Kings Cross nightclub bouncer, recruited a who's who of Australian IS fighters, including Khaled Sharrouf and and Mohamed Elomar, boys as young as 17, and at least seven Australians who would go on to be killed in Syria and Iraq.

Family members of September 11 victims are taking a stand against Islamophobia with a new bus ad campaign designed to promote religious ‘tolerance’ (an idea virtually non-existent in Islam).
HUFFINGTON POST: Sponsored by September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, the ad’s launch coincides with a symposium on gun violence and hate crimes taking place on September 6 in New York City. The symposium will encourage dialogue between panellists and audience members with the intention of discussing solutions to religious intolerance.

A man or woman convicted of homosexuality could be sentenced to caning and up to 20 years in jail, according to current laws. The two states are proposing changes by which a Muslim homosexual could be punished under both federal and religious charges, meaning that jail terms could increase, a Reuters report stated.
Mohd. Ali Rustam, the chief minister of Malacca, explained that as an Islamic nation, they could not allow homosexuality in the name of human rights. So many people like to promote human rights, even up to the point they want to allow lesbian activities and homosexuality, Ali told Reuters, In Islam, we cannot do all this. It is against Islamic law, adding that Muslim homosexuals would also be required to attend counseling.

were all Muslims, he must be one.
But Carter isn’t alone. For years, American leaders have lectured Muslims on the nature of Islam, in the fruitless hope that pooh-poohing Islamic extremism as a fringe element will somehow convince Muslims all over the world that America is more of a friend to them than Islamic radicals are.
This week, Barack Obama said, “ISIS speaks for no religion” -- which comes a shock to those who live in the world of reality, given that ISIS certainly speaks for a certain segment of a religion. Eric Holder has said that radical Islam is not consistent with the teachings of Islam.
For years, George W. Bush assured Americans that Islamic extremists represented but a tiny minority of Muslims. Hillary Clinton wrote in her new memoir Hard Choices that “Not all Islamists are alike…it is in America's interest to encourage all religiously based political parties and leaders to embrace inclusive democracy and reject violence.”
