What’s even more surprising, however, is that Germany is actually the biggest importer of natural gas from Russia. According to BP’s latest annual review, it imported close to a whopping 40 billion cubic meters of gas from the Russian Federation in 2013. That places it well ahead of even Ukraine, which imported about 25 billion cubic meters.

According to an article of the German Der Spiegel magazine, which cites senior officials of the German government and the Christian Democratic party, Angela Merkel will be the first chancellor since 1949 to leave office on her own accord.
Such a move would come as a major shock in her country, where Mrs Merkel remains exceptionally popular with voters and it would certainly affect Europe, where she is considered the continent’s most powerful leader.
The article alleges that the first female Chancellor of Germany doesn’t want to complete her third term and she is planning to resign before the elections due in 2017, as she is interested in a new role as UN Secretary-General or President of the European Council.

Beyond the Ferguson, Mo., media reports on the “racial divide,” the facts require some correction: Despite notions to the contrary, there is only one human race. Our single race is independent of geographic origin, ethnicity, culture, color of skin or shape of eyes — we all share a single phenotype, the same or similar observable anatomical features and behavior.
Science highlights these similarities in our embryonic development, physiology (our organ-based systems), biochemistry (our metabolites and reactions), and more recently, genomics (our genetic makeup). As a molecular biologist, this last one is indeed the most important to me — data show that the DNA of any two human beings is 99.9 percent identical, and we all share the same set of genes, scientifically validating the existence of a single biological human race and one origin for all human beings. In short, we are all brothers and sisters. [What is the Difference between Race and Ethnicity? ]
Biologically speaking, one clear example is that most diseases afflict all of us — diseases like cancers and cardiovascular and neurological disorders, as well as viral, microbial and parasitic infections. Obviously, there are differences in how individual humans respond to various diseases or infections; some never suffer from cancer and may be immune to assorted infections. This may be due to factors such as diet, exercise, overall health or environmental conditions. However, the fact that a human population, irrespective of geography or ethnicity is susceptible to the same diseases, coupled with the existence of multiple pandemics , is a clear indication of how identical we are.
Genetically speaking, studies have shown that there is much greater genetic variation within a given human population (e.g., Africans, Caucasians, or Asians) than between populations (Africans vs. Caucasions), indicating that human variation cannot be subdivided into discrete races.
It is history, not science,that reveals how the concept of different human “races” arose, how the term has become widely misused, and how it continues to pervade our planet. In fact, the word race has come to symbolize the division of humanity into segments, divisions that often lead to conflicts. Over centuries, people have used the word to divide us into black, white, yellow, red, and other distinctions in order to fulfill selfish goals and objectives. Whether those goals were to subjugate various groups of humans, deem them inferior or simply discriminate against them, the reality is that billions of people have been directly affected as a result of the misuse of the word race.

Teaching is the art and science of people seeing/learning reality for themselves. Once ignited, passion for learning becomes a life-long expression.
Our Orwellian world of the present witnesses a union of “leaders” in government and corporate media “teaching” the 99% public that what’s good are:
corporate media journalism.
This Government/Media Union is not teaching, but herding the public into chosen areas of propaganda, as the above links easily explain, document, and prove. Government/Media “teaching” has an academic term thanks to Princeton Professor Harry Frankfurt’s best-selling book on this topic:
Democratic and Republican Party “leaders” with corporate media also increasingly “teach” us that what’s bad are teacher unions, public education, and “non-accountability.”
As a public school teacher of 31 years, I offer these main points of current status:
Public schools are squeezed of funding (who isn’t?), causing larger classes, fewer essential programs in the arts and extracurricular activities (the most fun part of school for many), and less support services. Contrast this reality with the Government/Media Union’s lies for forced austerity while literally sitting on taxpayer surpluses in the hundreds of billions of dollars. This is obscene fraud demanding immediate arrests.
The goal of demonizing teachers, our unions, and our work seems to be privatizing education. This would tighten control over the message, and fire teachers “at will” rather than having to prove a teacher’s factual inaccuracy or bias over controversial topics.
The message of “accountability” is embraced by all good teachers. And that said, when public education is being defunded by CAFR-looters requiring corporate media “coverage” while ignoring OBVIOUS solutions, and Government engages in lie-began war-murders, the Emperor’s New Clothes-obvious accountability we should first address is arresting Government/Media Union leaders to lawfully stop their wars, looting, and lies.
