By Iona Salter in Samoa

    MAP: Samoa

Homosexuality may be illegal in Samoa, but the annual transgender beauty pageant is a mainstay of the island nation’s social calendar.

Miss Fa’afafine takes its name from the Samoan word for the society’s “third gender”, which literally translates to “in the style of” (fa’a) “woman” (fafine). Continue reading Miss Fa’afafine: inside Samoa’s transgender beauty pageant

TelesurTV, August 23, 2016

Almost 90 tribes have expressed solidarity with the protests against a controversial pipeline that crosses through Indigenous land.

A federal judge extended a temporary restraining order for another two weeks on “unlawful protest” against construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, a move that comes as activists say their peaceful actions are attracting broader support.

The QUANT: A Fast Electric car that really Works on a Saltwater solution, and a Battery that never Wears Out.

Sounds too good to be true, but this car exists already with limited public sales beginning this year (2016). It first came out as the super expensive Quant e-Sportlimosine  prototype and now the Quantino family saloon (see QUANTINO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5Ic8XI3GlM) . The advantage, for you and the planet,  is you need no oil or electricity, just fill up with 2 ‘cheap salty solutions’. The QUANT is projected to finally cost similar to other electric cars

The Quantino runs on a 'cheap totally non toxic salty solution'.. no burn involved, infinite battery life. In principle you don't even need special filling stations for non toxic fuel. Of course you still have the climate and environment damage from vehicle construction.

Not so long ago, excitement rose to a fevered pitch with the announcement of a budget Tesla car slated to hit the streets in 2017. The cars are gorgeous, seemingly easy on the environment and in a price range the average Joe can afford. But over the last few years, there have been disgruntled murmurings about how electric vehicles aren’t that environmentally sound.

Some feel they can actually be worse for the planet than combustion engines, since they often rely on conventional electricity sources to recharge. So while the idea is appealing in theory, the reality isn’t so rosy when we look at their actual impact. The same can be said for other technologies like hydrogen fuel cell and hybrid cars.

There is one advancement, however, that could be a genuine game changer in the realm of eco-friendly cars: saltwater powered vehicles.2011-02-14-battery-lie

‘Emperor’ Erdogan uses pretext of Childrens’ Wedding Massacre..to attack the Victims!

The Yazidi Womens Brigade join the SDF as they close in on the Turkish supported ISIS in the border town of Jarablus

Erdogan's massacres tourism-boycottThis is at least the third time it has happened.  That a massacre of Kurds has been immediately followed up by a Turkish State attack on Kurds. In this case the ‘Childrens Massacre’ is being used as an obvious pretext to invade Syria. These are the 3 apparent ‘False Flag’ attacks: 

  1. July 20, 2015, Suruç: 34 Kurdish humanitarian volunteers were killed and about 100 injured in a suicide bombing in the predominantly-Kurdish town of Suruc near the border with Syria. Turkish officials blamed ISIS.

But instead of cracking down on ISIS they immediately began a blitzkrieg persecution of the Kurds themselves who were the victims, resulting in the end of the ceasefire and the whole Peace Process initiated by the Kurdish leader Ocalan, and a wave of Turkish nationalism that boosted Erdogan’s march to supreme dictator. ISIS never claimed the attack.suruc-explosion-3_3381376b

2. – October 10, 2015: 103 people are killed and more than 500 wounded in twin suicide bombings targeting a pro-Kurdish Peace Rally in Ankara. Again while blaming ISIS the Turkish State unleashed a wave of terror on the Kurdish victims themselves, criminalising the whole Kurdish political and cultural sector, sparking a war with the PKK guerilla volunteers, killing hundreds of civilians and bombing whole cities, like Cizre and Nusaybin into ruins.
