Cut benefits 'to get Neets back to work': MPs demand 'radical' crackdown on young jobless
Young people not in employment, education or training should be stripped of benefits to force them into the workplace, a report from MPs demands.
A 'radical' crackdown is needed to reduce the numbers of so- called Neets, similar to a clampdown in Holland that has seen benefits taken away from those aged under 27 who 'get money and sit at home'.
The MPs say this could be achieved by allowing Neets to claim Jobseeker's Allowance only if they take part in training or education

Wikileaks to release new video showing murder of scores of Afghan civilians
Wikileaks, the scourge of governments from China to the US, will soon release a video related to this killing of more than a hundred innocent Afghan civilians in May 2009. This comes on the backdrop of the release of helicopter footage of the slaying of Iraqis in 2007. Take note of what the US were saying when the news broke last year of the casualties:
Iraq War Vet: "We Were Told to Just Shoot People, and the Officers Would Take Care of Us"
On Monday, April 5, Wikileaks.org posted video footage from Iraq, taken from a US military Apache helicopter in July 2007 as soldiers aboard it killed 12 people and wounded two children. The dead included two employees of the Reuters news agency: photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen and driver Saeed Chmagh.
The US military confirmed the authenticity of the video.
The footage clearly shows an unprovoked slaughter, and is shocking to watch whilst listening to the casual conversation of the soldiers in the background.
As disturbing as the video is, this type of behavior by US soldiers in Iraq is not uncommon.

Seasonal flu vaccines increase risk of pandemic H1N1 flu, stunned scientists discover
I remember the H1N1 "swine flu" season of 2009 very well. People were rushing out to get vaccinated, scared half to death by the mainstream media which was pushing false reports that the swine flu would kill tens of millions of people and that only a vaccine could save you. The CDC and health authorities were pushing a double-barreled vaccine strategy that demanded people get both a seasonal flu shot as well as an H1N1 pandemic flu shot. Those who questioned the sensibility of vaccines for fighting the flu were attacked as "baby killers" for not kow-towing to the vaccine mythology that drives Big Pharma's profits to record profits nearly every flu season.
Social workers take baby boy after mom refuses to feed him processed junk food

"I thought I was ... going to the best people for advice when Zak began to lose weight," his mother said. "Instead they basically accused me of neglecting him and implied it was all my fault."
Doctors advised Zak's parents to feed him junk food in order to stem his weight loss. His parents, firm believers in healthy eating, refused.

And I'm not denigrating our armed forces in any way. Every man jack of them are heroes in my eyes.
This is the story of an ordinary man doing without thinking, an heroic act.
This is the dramatic moment a two-year-old girl was plucked from an icy river after being rescued by her father and a total stranger.
Two-year-old Bridget Sheridan had fallen 20ft into New York's East River after slipping off a gangplank at the South Street Seaport museum.
French tourist Julien Duret immediately jumped into the water to rescue the little girl before she sank beneath the water and handed her to her father David Anderson, who had dived in after him.
Heroic: French tourist Julien Duret, right, hands Bridget Sheridan to her father David Anderson after they both dived into New York's East River to save her
Mr Anderson, who was visiting from California, spoke of his relief after his child was brought back to safety and opened her eyes after appearing to be 'lifeless' in the water.
He said: 'She was laying on her back, looking up at me, terror in her eyes. The fact she was crying I knew she was fine.'
Meanwhile Mr Duret simply walked off after his selfless act of heroism and was eventually traced by the New York Daily News.
Mr Duret, 29, from Lyon, said he didn't think twice before diving into the chilly waters
'The emotion took over,' Duret told the Daily News. 'I didn't think at all. It happened very fast. I reacted very fast... I've never done anything like that before.'
Shocked: Mr Duret was amazed to find he was the hero of New York after he dived into a river to save a drowning toddler
Duret, an engineer on vacation, was walking with his girlfriend on the pier when he spotted something falling into the water.
He approached the water and looked down. He thought it was a doll; then realised it was a child. He stripped his coat and jumped into the water.
When he reached Bridget, she appeared lifeless, he said. He scooped her up and gave her to her father. David Anderson then lifted his daughter out of the water and she opened her eyes.
Anderson said his daughter slipped through guardrails when he stopped watching her so he could adjust his camera. He spirited her into an ambulance, said Duret, who was handed dry clothes from onlookers. Duret caught a cab shortly after.
It was the final day of Mr Duret's first trip to the city. He said he didn't realise his tale of heroism had captivated New York until he was leaving the next morning.
'I don't really think I'm a hero,' he said. 'Anyone would do the same thing.'
He would never make a PCSO.

ALERT: Euro on Verge of Real Crisis
We are so concerned by recent developments with Greece as a canary in the coal mine for the Euro that we just issued an alert to subscribers that we foresee a big blow up for the Euro in about roughly one month’s time. That is USD bullish and gold bullish, and bearish for about everything else out there. And this has many other implications for US Treasury bonds, the China Yuan revaluation issue and many others. This Euro situation is a huge potential bombshell, possibly outgunning all previous huge crises we faced over the last 2.5 years. That’s right, the Euro situation can outgun all the worst financial chaos we have seen so far, and lead to massive currency instability worldwide. This is a big deal if it happens as we foresee.

(Downgrade or not, Moody’s said, the United States needs to enact fiscal restraint of such magnitude “that, in some cases, will test social cohesion” – a prediction that evokes images of mobs and mayhem.) In such circumstances, a Canadian offer of bailout assistance would be a matter of compelling self-interest.
