Quoting TheAenigma

British aid worker Linda Norgrove may have been accidentally killed by US forces during a rescue mission in Afghanistan, David Cameron has said.

International forces originally said she died on Friday when one of her captors detonated a suicide vest.

But the prime minister said new details had come to light suggesting her death may have resulted from a US grenade.

Mr Cameron said he had spoken to her family about the "deeply distressing" news.

Whom do they send to war? 17-20 year old dumb young men who joined the forces being agitated on streets and later on thrown into the middle of the war.

And of course, US wont get punished for anything.

100 million hand crafted sunflower seeds as sculpture?

 

I came a cross this article here as ´tate carpeted with sun flower seeds´

http://news.sky.com/s...hinese_Artist_Ai_Weiwei  by Ai Weiwei a Chinese artist.

When I was thinking ´what a peculiar thing to do´ and I read another article:

http://www.bloomberg.co..00-million-seeds-review.html

 

 

"Sunflower Seeds,"

..The work consists of 100 million little monochrome porcelain replicas of sunflower seed husks. This humble item carries strong associations for Ai. The sunflower seed is a popular Chinese snack. During the Cultural Revolution of 1966- 76, Chairman Mao Zedong was represented as the Sun with the Chinese people as sunflowers turning their faces toward him.

The Cultural Revolution holds terrible memories for Ai, 53. His father, Ai Qing (1910-1996), a celebrated poet, was exiled to a remote village and condemned to hard labor.

..used one of most significant materials of the old China: porcelain. Each of the ceramic sunflower shells was hand-painted and crafted by workers at a factory ..

It took two years to manufacture this quantity of tiny porcelain seed-pods. Altogether they weigh 150 metric tonnes. They crunch under your feet like gravel, and visitor’s footsteps form them into an undulating miniature landscape, like a desert seen from the air.

If you pick up a few, you discover that each is minutely different. The pattern of black and white stripes is always slightly varied, just as each individual human being is unique, though in a crowd, from a distance they can seem much the same.

Everybody seems happy apart from wife of Yonni Barrios, who was busted when his wife of 28 years and mistress of ten years both showed up to hold vigil at the mine site in September.

Ever since, we´ve been wondering what will happen when he´s finally freed from the mine. Will he kiss his wife, then his mistress? Will he kiss his wife and ignore his mistress? Will they have one big three-way kiss? Hug the wife and then kiss the mistress behind the wife´s back? Just run, as fast as possible?

It turns out that none of those permutations are going to happen, because Barrios´s wife, Marta Salinas, is boycotting her philandering husband´s rescue, which is expected to take place between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. today. You can´t really blame her — Barrios requested that both of the women show up.

Not very nice having the WHOLE WORD knowing your personal business though.  Glad it all went well for him (and the others)

The Bodymax bum-lift and frontal enhancement pack will go on sale from October 15. The Argyle Street M&S store in Glasgow will be the only place in Scotland men can buy the pants, although they will also be available to order online.

Manufactures claim the frontal enhancement pack, for a mere £10, will give men a 38% boost. Meanwhile, the bum lift pants - for £15 - will give a 20% "visual lift" to a man’s derriere.

Celery Forest

British photographer Carl Warner creates landscapes entirely from food and then photographs them - anyone hungry?

(Perhaps he was inspired by watching ´Close Encounters...´ - )
