According to the Times of Israel, the Australian government approved the move in a late-night national security meeting, Tuesday, but it will likely be delayed due to the exorbitant price tag of the relocation...

VANCOUVER - A newly discovered cave in a remote valley in British Columbia's Wells Gray Provincial Park might just be the country's largest.
The feature was spotted by a helicopter crew from the province's Ministry of Environment and Climate Change in March, when they were conducting a caribou census through the northeastern part of the park.
Geologist Catherine Hickson, who first went to the cave in September, said the discovery promises a dramatic new chapter in the story of Canadian cave exploration.
“It was absolutely amazing,” she said. “I immediately recognized that this was very significant.”...

Overheated laptop ignited blaze that burned rural Manitoba home to ground

An overheated laptop ignited papers on a desk and erupted into a fire that left nothing but ashes where a family's home once stood in a small southeastern Manitoba community.

The cause of the fire, which happened Nov. 21 in Sundown — just over 100 kilometres southeast of Winnipeg — was released this week by the provincial fire commissioner's office. The official wording cited the case as "accidental, due to an overheated laptop igniting nearby combustibles."

Joyska Tkachyk, whose home it was, told CBC News the computer was charging on a desk near paperwork — something done regularly by many people...

Canada Must Get Out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Tim Ball;
I am proud to be the Canadian representative for the climate exit (CLEXIT) movement. Canada has more culpability than any other nation in creating and perpetuating the deception. It is not hyperbole to say that Canada was central to creating and mobilizing the false claim of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). The idea that humans were causing runaway global warming originated with the Club of Rome. Formed in 1968 by David Rockefeller, it expanded on the Malthusian idea that the population would outgrow the food supply. The expansion was that world population would outgrow all resources. They made three major assumptions.
    • The demand for resources would increase every year because the population is increasing every year.
    • Developed nations increase the demand by using resources at a much greater rate than developing nations.
    • More nations are changing from developing to developed and accelerating demand.
They produced a few books and reports to substantiate the claims about population and demand. Paul Ehrlich’s 1968 The Population Bomb garnered enormous attention. Less well read but still influential was the 1972 book Limits to Growth by Meadows et al. It used a very primitive computer program that started with two components. The known volume of a resource and the current rate of use. Then, using a simple linear trend, it projected the point at which the resource would run out. It also projected the point at which the volume of the resource use peaked. Another book published in 1977, Ecoscience, Population, Resources, and Environment, influenced policy for a long time because of Paul Ehrlich’s co-author John Holdren. He later became Science Advisor in the Obama White House...
...The bureaucrats at Environment Canada became a major force nationally and internationally in promoting and perpetuating the deception. The government of Canada must use them to take the lead in a return to sanity. It is time to shut them down and CLEXIT from the fiasco, deception, and devastating costs in lost opportunities. It is guaranteed to create bad science when you have scientific bureaucrats. If the evidence shows what thy told politicians were the case, they are not going to risk their job by admitting they got it wrong. As Upton Sinclair said,
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”
The only role of EC should involve as much data collection as possible made available to anybody who needs it.

Sandra Solomon standing up for Canadians

''My name is Sandra Solomon, a truly concerned Human Rights Advocate and proud citizen of the great nation of Canada...''

Sandra Solomon, grew up in Saudi Arabia under Sharia law, where women are not considered human beings.

Family members are threatening to "honor" kill her for being non-Muslim, but she refuses to remain silent.

Sandra Solomon has been portrayed by the fake news mainstream media as a hate monger.Sandra was of victim of rape and other horrible things while living under 100% sharia laws. Sandra Solomon is a survivor and she lives to tell her story.

People should be allowed to voice their opinion in a Western society.

 Liberals and leftists in the West use the made up term "Islamophobia" to portray anyone who criticizes Islam as a racist.

Terrorists all over the world carry out terror attacks "in the name of Allah".

They justify their violence by quoting verses from the Quran.

Islamophobia is a made up word created specifically to silence debate.

Liberals and leftists ignore the fact that it is an ideology that has nothing to do with race...

First time together: North America's three bears on camera

The Conversation: Special to The Weather Network

Friday, November 23, 2018, 5:19 PM - North America’s three bear species — black bears, grizzly bears and polar bears — don’t typically live in the same place. But in Wapusk National Park, on the west coast of Hudson Bay in northern Manitoba, we caught all three bears on camera — for the first time.

My colleagues and I began studying the bears in Wapusk in 2011, after more polar bears than expected began visiting new field camps in the park. We used remote cameras — a widespread, economical and non-invasive tool for studying wildlife — to find out why and when the polar bears were visiting these camps.

The cameras picked up more than 366 visits by polar bears to the camps in five years. They also detected other bears...

Dozens of indigenous women forcibly sterilised in Canada, U.N. committee hears

By Chris Arsenault @chrisarsenaul

TORONTO, Nov 23 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Dozens of indigenous women were forcibly sterilised by Canadian health authorities, including as recently as in 2017, said the lawyer leading a class-action lawsuit against the government.

Alisa Lombard was speaking on Thursday after appearing in Geneva at the U.N. Committee against Torture during hearings into Canada’s human rights record.

More than 90 indigenous women in the western province of Saskatchewan contacted lawyers to join the lawsuit over forced sterilisation, said Lombard of Maurice Law, the indigenous-run firm spearheading the case.

"This practice needs to stop," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation, adding that she knew of cases in 2009, 2011 and 2017.

"If it happened then and nothing was done to prevent it, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be happening now," Lombard said...

Isolated Tribe Kills American With Bow and Arrow on Remote Indian Island

NEW DELHI — John Allen Chau seemed to know that what he was about to do was extremely dangerous.

Mr. Chau, an American thought to be in his 20s, was floating in a kayak off a remote island in the Andaman Sea. He was about to set foot on one of the most sealed-off parts of India, an island inhabited by a small, enigmatic and highly isolated tribe whose members have killed outsiders for simply stepping on their shore.

Fishermen warned him not to go. Few outsiders had ever been there. And Indian government regulations clearly prohibited any interaction with people on the island, called North Sentinel.
But Mr. Chau pushed ahead, setting off in his kayak, which he had packed with a Bible. After that, it is a bit of a mystery what happened.

But the police say one thing is clear: Mr. Chau did not survive.

On Wednesday, the Indian authorities said that Mr. Chau had been shot with bows and arrows by tribesmen when he got on shore and that his body was still on the island. Fishermen who helped take Mr. Chau to North Sentinel told the police that they had seen tribesmen dragging his body on the beach...

Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev say they have conducted a pilot study that showed that raw human excrement can potentially be converted to a safe, reusable fuel and a nutrient-rich fertilizer.

The discovery addresses two major needs of the developing world: better sanitation and environmentally friendly fuel for energy, the researchers said in a statement.

 The research was published ahead of World Toilet Day, which will be marked on November 19. World Toilet Day is a day designated by the United Nations to bring attention and inspire action to the global sanitation crisis. Some 4.5 billion people, or some 60 percent of the global population, either have no toilet at home or one that doesn’t safely manage their excrement, while some 892 million practice open defecation, according to the UN...

NORTH KOREA - Mind Blowing Mass Games

NORTH KOREA - Mind Blowing Mass Games from Joerg Daiber on Vimeo.

Also check out my Pyongyang film here:

A few weeks back I had the chance to visit Pyongyang and attend the Mass Games there. This show is by far the most incredible and amazing performance I have ever laid my eyes on. Watch this 4 minute film and you will know why. Only a communist country can pull something like this off I guess. However, I do not want to get involved in politics here, so please do your own research.

Many thanks to Simon Cockerell and Jessica Mader from Koryo Tours ( ) and Ri So Hyang, Kim Sun Mi, Lee Song Hyok, Kim Yong Un from KITC for arranging permissions and making this project possible.
By the way: I did not get paid to shoot this film!

Mass Games can basically be described as a synchronized socialist-realist spectacular, featuring over 100,000 participants in a 90-minute display of gymnastics, dance, acrobatics, and dramatic performance, accompanied by music and other effects, all wrapped in a highly politicized package. Students practiced every day from January onwards. The 90 minute performance is held every evening at 7pm and features the 'largest picture in the world' a giant mosaic of individual students each holding a book whose pages links with their neighbours’ to make up one gigantic scene. When the students turn the pages the scene or individual elements of the scene change, up to 170 pages make up one book.
In August 2007, the Mass Games were recognised by Guinness World Records as the largest gymnastic display with 100,090 participants at the May Day Stadium in Pyongyang. (Source Wikipedia)

Beneath Antarctica's Ice, Intriguing Evidence of Lost Continents

A new map reveals the remnants of ancient continents lurking beneath Antarctica's ice.
The map shows that East Antarctica is made up of multiple cratons, which are the cores of continents that came before, according to study leader Jörg Ebbing, a geoscientist at Kiel University in Germany.

"This observation leads back to the break-up of the supercontinent Gondwana and the link of Antarctica to the surrounding continents," Ebbing told Live Science. The findings help reveal fundamental facts about Earth's tectonics and how Antarctica's land and ice sheets interact, he wrote in an email.
