House Defense Bill Blocks Obama’s Plan to Close Guantanamo Bay Prison

Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Saturday, Feb. 2, 2002. (photo: AP)

he House of Representatives has overwhelmingly passed a sweeping, $638bn defence bill that would block President Barack Obama from closing the US detention facility at Guantnamo Bay, and limit his efforts to reduce nuclear weapons. It must be reconciled with a Senate version before heading to the president’s desk.

Despite last minute lobbying by Obama counter terrorism adviser Lisa Monaco, the House soundly rejected Obama’s repeated pleas to shutter Guantnamo. In recent weeks, the president implored Congress to close the facility in Cuba, citing its prohibitive costs and its role as a recruiting tool for extremists.

A hunger strike by more than 100 of the 166 prisoners protesting against their conditions and indefinite confinement has prompted the fresh calls for closure. Obama is pushing to transfer approved detainees there are 86 to their home countries and lift a ban on transfers to Yemen. Fifty six of the 86 are from Yemen.

The House voted down an amendment to close the naval detention centre by 31 December 2014 by 249 votes to 174. It also backed an amendment
replica ray bans by 236 to 188 to stop the president from transferring any detainees to Yemen.

The restrictions in the House bill put it at odds with the Democratic controlled Senate.

The Senate armed services committee’s bill gives the defence department additional flexibility to transfer Guantnamo detainees to the US and other countries, with the objective of closing the detention facility there.

But, in a move that reflects deep divisions in Congress over Guantnamo’s future, the committee did not hold votes on the provision in the bill, opting instead to have that debate when the legislation moves to the Senate floor.

In its current form, the Senate committee’s legislation would permit transfer of terror suspects to the US if the Pentagon determines that doing so is in the interests of national security and that any public safety issues have been addressed, the committee said Friday in a statement detailing the bill’s major provisions.

Detainees could be moved to foreign countries if they are determined to no longer be a threat to US security, the transfers are pursuant to court orders, or the individuals have been tried and
discount ray bans acquitted, or have been convicted and completed their sentences.

Transfers to third countries also could occur if the Pentagon determines the move supports US national security interests and steps have been taken "to substantially mitigate the risk of the detainee re engaging in terrorist activities," the committee said.

The defence policy bill also bars the Pentagon or the National Nuclear Security Agency from spending any money to implement the new Start treaty with Russia that the Senate ratified in
cheap ray ban outlet December 2010 until the defence secretary provides certain information on reducing the US nuclear arsenal to Congress.

The bill also imposes new punishments on members of the armed services found guilty of rape or sexual assault as outrage over the crisis in the military has galvanised Congress.

Obama backs the measures, which would require a mandatory minimum sentence of
cheap ray bans two years in prison for a member of the armed services convicted of rape or sexual assault in a military court. The bill also would strip military commanders of the power to overturn convictions in rape and sexual assault cases.Articles Connexes:

Relearning intimacy

Teri Thorson gave birth to her son Lucian vaginally with some forceps assistance. She often has to correct people who assume he is not her biological son when they see her wheelchair. An early portfolio shot catches her gazing confidently into the camera, a woman ready to take on the world.

Cory Parsons was always seeking out adventure and pushing the boundaries. He had already had several romances by the time he was 23, and in the summer
Cheap Michael Kors handbags of 1998 headed to Kelowna on his motorcycle to pursue another.

Life as they knew it ended for both of them when accidents put them first in hospital, then in wheelchairs. A car crash left Thorson paralyzed from the chest down at age 25. As they were driving to the beach, an unmarked hairpin turn caught them both unaware
cheap Michael Kors and her friend was unable to course correct before the vehicle flipped over three times.

Thorson remembers bits and pieces of the crash.

The car rolling.

The moment the roof
fake Michael kors handbags outlet caved in on her head.

Her neck dislocating.

People talking to her by the side of the road.

An
fake Michael Kors ambulance driver.

A helicopter ride to a hospital that wasn’t equipped to deal with her injury. A transfer to another.

Almost immediately after the crash, Thorson knew something was wrong. She had damaged her vertebrae
cheap Michael Kors from C4 to C7, from her lower to her upper neck. She would eventually be labelled as ‘complete,’ meaning she has no hand movement but good triceps and biceps strength, with some wrist strength as well. But it wasn’t until doctors at the second hospital told her that she realized she was paralyzed. Knowing they would both be in the area again in a year, they agreed to meet up then to see if sparks would still fly.

They did.

As Parsons put it,
Michael Kors discounts "It was love all over. We were very, very, very connected."

Excited after their lengthy separation, the two explored the waterfront and had some drinks before checking out a swimming area in the local park.

Parsons dove in headfirst.

As his head hit the bottom, two vertebrae in his mid neck, C5
cheap Michael Kors outlet 6, broke.

"I knew something was really wrong. I couldn’t move my arms,
Cheap Michael Kors handbags I couldn’t get myself above water to breathe," he said.

Luckily, Parsons’ girlfriend was a nurse and immediately knew what had happened. Getting into the water, she held him in a spinal clamp position, stabilizing him with her arms.

Unluckily, the medical team that came to assist pulled Parsons out of the water by his arms, dislocating his shoulders and further damaging his sixth vertebrae.Articles Connexes:

A Beginners Guide to Direct Marketing

This guide is packed with tips and tactics to help you write
cheap Michael Kors handbags successful sales letters and target your marketing campaigns for maximum response. You are taken from the basics of Direct Marketing, how to profile your targets, and develop prospect lists, through to the planning and writing of successful Marketing literature. This includes Direct Response Advertising, email and Interactive Web Sites. However, the most common format is Direct Mail. In terms of overall expenditure, Direct Mail ranks as the third largest advertising technique in the UK.

Despite sometimes receiving negative press (often being referred to as "junk mail"),
cheap Michael kors handbags outlet targeted direct mail is an effective and valuable form of marketing.

Profile your existing customers. Look for any similarities between customers in terms of their type, regional distribution, age, economic characteristics etc. If you have only basic customer records, Upgrade any old records you have by consulting a database marketing company to add marketing information from their own extensive company database into yours. If you don have a customer base, use market research and your product/service USPs or Unique Selling Points to try to identify what types of people or companies would most benefit from your offering.

Next, Identify your "hottest" prospects. These are customers who return the most for your time and money investments. Next, look for any
Michael Kors outlet potential customers or groups that you could try to target that you haven already. If your customer base has any geographic bias, think about whether you want to maintain that bias or expand it. Finally, think about the individuals. Do you have a preferred profile of age, sex, occupation or
cheap michael kors job title. What responsibilities do you think they would have?

Locating New Prospects

Now you know who your potential
Michael kors handbags outlet customers are, you have to locate new prospects to target. The easiest way to locate new prospects is to buy or rent a mailing list.

Mailing lists are available directly from database marketing companies that specialize in business to business or consumer lists. List brokers broke many lists from many different sources. Many lists, especially consumers, are available through Internet groups. These databases are often compiled on an "opt in" basis where all consumers have freely submitted their data, interest areas etc.

As mentioned, lists can be rented for a one time use only or purchased for multiple use. Lists can provide contact names, titles, company names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers and sometimes email addresses. Each element of information potentially adds cost so be clear as to what data you require before ordering.

e mail addresses are currently a bone of contention within the Direct Marketing industry. Unless the company has indicated that they want to receive your e mails (permission based or opt in marketing) your e mail may be considered as SPAM (unsolicited commercial e mail) and can be the cause of your ISP being blacklisted or, at worst, court proceedings to be threatened. If you want to buy an e mail list, be clear about the criteria under which it has been collected and how it can be used.

Define Your Campaign

Direct Marketing or Direct Mail has a clear advantage in that it allows you to measure exactly the response to your campaigns, their success and ROI (Return on Investment). Before you start you will need to be clear on what the objectives are of your campaign(s). A clearly defined mission makes for a clear message to customers. Are you looking for direct, immediate sales? Do you want sales leads? Are you informing your customer about something new? Are you looking to change people perception of your product/service/company? Are you offering an incentive? It is vital that you know what you wish the successful outcome of your campaign to be.

Planning the Literature

You know your target customer. You are clear about the mission. Now at the heart of every Direct Mail shot is the sales letter. Whether you are emailing, faxing or posting. Although great sales letters don grow on trees, bad ones mostly fail through one or two simple and fundamental mistakes.

You can use experts to help such as Direct Marketing agencies but this this can be costly and time consuming. A simple sales letter which you can design and/or print in house may work just as well for you. Five key points to remember in creating the marketing literature are simplicity and clarity in the language and message, enthusiasm and belief in your product, empathy towards your audience, imagination and creativity in your style and "Call to Action" to let your customers know what to do next.

Remember that a product or service is seen for what it does for the buyer, not what it IS. Work to the FAB rule. Write down the Features of your product/service. Then write the Advantages. Now focus on communicating simply the Benefits that
cheap Michael Kors arise from these in your Direct Marketing material.

Make your FABs relevant to the readers needs/wants/ambitions. Look for Exclusive or Unique aspects. Make it Worthwhile and Valuable. Support your proposition with credible evidence or testimonial.

, research, research. You don have to go it alone. What are your competition doing? If you received their mailshots, would they work for you? Collect and review the Direct Marketing that you receive. Learn from their mistakes as well as harvesting their best features for your own campaigns.

Call to Action

A great sales letter does not necessarily lead to great sales. It amazing how many otherwise passable sales letters leave the reader floundering as to exactly what expected of them after they read the letter.

Be precise and clear in what you want them to do. Direct the recipient to the required actions. Make it as easy and as quick
Michael Kors handbags as possible for them to respond by including such items as direct ordering forms with preprinted names and addresses, fax back sheets, response mailers (reply paid), hyperlink click throughs for e mails.

The Nitty Gritty

This is it. The time to put pen to paper. You should be clear on all your objectives, output formats, target customers, FABs, mechanisms for reply, etc. Now you have to make it all happen. There are a number of simple techniques or formulae designed to help you approach a sales letter logically. They are not intended as a merely as a guide to ensure you cover the right points in the right order.

Interest. Or more importantly, holding it! Use some surprising or intriguing facts relevant to your product or service. Make sure you are talking about the reader problem, need or opportunity, not about your company or product.

Salespoints. This is the Promise answer to the reader in it for me? question. Back it up with as many subsidiary salespoints as you can without confusing the main issue.Articles Connexes:

When film financing falls through

Moviemakers Hal and Marilyn Weiner thought they had all the ingredients for an attention grabbing fundraising campaign for their newest documentary, "Extreme
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet Realities."

Matt Damon was narrating the film, which features interviews with big names such as New York Times columnists Paul Krugman, a Nobel Prize winning economist, and Tom Friedman, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. The Weiners have a prolific track record together, they have had 255 documentaries, four television series and three feature films broadcast on NBC or PBS.

If they had been looking for large grants or investors, their recipe was one that had worked in the past. But in the world of crowdfunding, where artists and entrepreneurs can raise money from large group of small donors online, having big names on board wasn’t enough and therein lies a lesson about the challenges of this new method of financing.

The Weiners, District residents, have been making films for the past 40 years. So far, their environment focused documentaries have been funded by nonprofits and grants, such as the Science Educational Partnership Award supported by the National Institutes of Health. But a shrinking supply of grants and heightened competition from other filmmakers prompted the Weiners to try crowdfunding for their 256th documentary.

"Funding for PBS has been difficult lately," Marilyn Weiner said. "Using crowdfunding is an interesting way for producers to get their message out and tell their story."But they still needed
michael kors handbags outlet at least $75,000 more. So last month, they made a
Michael Kors handbags outlet page on Kickstarter, an online crowdfunding platform, requesting that
Michael Kors handbags outlet amount. Donors would receive perks depending on the size of their donation, such as a script signed by the Weiners for $25, or lunch with the moviemakers and an opportunity to attend the narration
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet session with Damon for $10,000.

Their Kickstarter page featured a six minute trailer with clips from Damon, Friedman and Krugman, among others, as well as a written appeal for donations. The film, the Weiners wrote, aims to answer questions such as "How soon before severe drought and famine in Africa will cause global food shortages?" and how much of the "$10 20 billion generated each year by illegal poaching can be linked to terrorist groups such as al Qaeda?"

They had 45 days to raise the money Kickstarter returns funds to donors if the goal isn’t met by the deadline. So they set to work, using Twitter and Facebook to promote the documentary. It wasn’t easy neither of them were very comfortable using social media, Marilyn Weiner said.

"We’re newbies," she said. "We’re like the kids that are starting out, which is kind of amusing because here we are with 250 documentaries to our name."

The two devoted hours every day to publicizing the campaign. "It was just short of debilitating," Hal Weiner said. They tweeted at environmental organizations such as GreenPeace and the Sierra Club some of whom re tweeted their campaign page to hundreds of thousands of followers. They posted on their Facebook pages and e mailed industry contacts.

Especially when crowdfunding films, targeting an audience passionate about the film’s topic is more effective than broad social media blasts, according to Kiley Kraskouskas, president and executive producer of Thinking Forward Media, a District based media company which conducts crowdfunding seminars.

"It’s about the niche finding a niche audience that really believes already in a project. It’s not about pleasing everybody," she said. Those who are already interested in a film’s topic are more likely to contribute, she added.

Despite their social media efforts, the Weiners found 22 hours before the campaign ended they had only raised about $45,000 from about 190 backers, almost half of whom were their personal contacts.

"We’ve been around for so long. Sometimes you get funding or you don’t get funding. But we were disappointed because we’d spent six weeks on this thing," Hal Weiner
Michael Kors handbags outlet said.

In the campaign’s final hours, the Weiners had a change of luck. They received an unsolicited message from an international corporation offering to cover the $30,000 gap.

"They were on a long list of people and environmental organizations we’d asked to spread the word. They went ahead and contacted us and said, ‘How do we help you make this happen?’" Marilyn Weiner said.

But because Kickstarter prohibits donations of more than $10,000, the company couldn’t make the contribution on the platform. The pledges the Weiners had already raised on Kickstarter weren’t accepted, as they hadn’t met the goal. The funds would be tax deductible and eventually re directed to the Weiners.

More than 85 percent of the Kickstarter donors have already agreed, and they expect more to do so, Marilyn Weiner said.

"Some people were so relieved [to donate to South Carolina ETV]. Kickstarter can be tricky, and it’s not exactly intuitive," Marilyn Weiner said, noting that several potential donors hadn’t contributed because they didn’t want to do it publicly on Kickstarter’s online platform.

Though they’re not sure they would use crowdfunding again, if they did, they’d devote more time to targeted social media, Hal Weiner said. "We would have done more social media overseas Europe is particularly ‘green.’ It’s not a wedge issue there," he said, noting that a handful of the Kickstarter donations came from environmentally conscious people in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

In a difficult financial environment, filmmakers will likely have to get creative, raising money piecemeal and doing as much production as possible on minimal funds, Marilyn Weiner said. "The model we used before, where you get all the funding [before production] worked in the past. It’s not ideal to start production before you have the funding, but on the other hand, if you wait,
cheap Michael kors handbags outlet you’re waiting for an awful long time."

Now that they’ve secured almost all of their budget, the Weiners are diving into production. In a couple of months, once they’re done filming, they’ll schedule narration sessions with Damon, and are hoping to air the documentary in the spring of next year.

This story has been updated to reflect new
Michael Kors handbags information about the $30,000 donation.

"We’ve been around for so long. Sometimes you get funding or you don’t get funding. But we were disappointed because we’d spent six weeks on this thing."Articles Connexes:

Beefing up production

Beef producers will begin to receive their share of 22 million in vital funding from next week, Rural Affairs Secretary Richard Lochhead has announced.

The
fake oakley wholesale money from the Scottish Beef Scheme (SBS) will begin to arrive in farmers’ bank accounts from Thursday 17 April and it’s expected that 95 per cent of producers will have been paid by Wednesday 23 April.

"The Scottish Government has a track record of delivering these payments as quickly as possible and I’m confident that this money will be arriving in the bank accounts
cheap oakleys of most producers by the 23rd of April."

Last week the EU Commission u turned on its initial agreement for Scotland to offer farmers a higher rate of
cheap fake oakley sunglasses coupled support.

Mr Lochhead added: "Scottish Beef Scheme is an example of coupled support in
cheap oakleys action and working for Scotland’s producers. However, Scottish farmers have been dealt a horrific hand following the spectacular u turn in Europe; I cannot fathom why we are losing out again.

"It just compounds the industry anger over the UK Government’s denial to hand over the full 223 million convergence uplift to our farmers which then offered Scotland the use of the UK’s flexibility on coupled support as a concession for that unacceptable decision.

"Effectively, they have picked the pockets of Scottish farmers.

"If Scotland had been independent in the last round of CAP negotiations we would have been entitled to an additional 1 billion in direct farm payments and could have been able to secure hundreds of millions more in rural development funding as other countries, such
fake oakleys as Ireland, have done.

"And, like the Irish, we could have been able to create a 40 million a year support scheme for beef, which could have given the equivalent of 205 per cow in the specialist beef sector.

"Instead, the harsh reality is that we are having to deal with budget cuts passed down from the UK Government and make difficult decisions. Although the Scottish Government is doing what it can to maintain rural development funding at current levels, we still have a reduction in real terms and spending will have
fake cheap oakleys to be prioritised."Articles Connexes:

Astérix et Obélix : au service de Sa Majesté

Tag: aventure,comédieadmin @ 2:15

C'est l'année 50 avant Jésus Christ. César a toujours envie de conquérir. Il décide donc d'étendre son règne au delà des limites du monde connu et occuper Brittania, la Bretagne.
Aussitôt dit, aussitôt fait. Sa victoire est presque totale, car un petit village breton s'entête de lui résister, même si avec les dernières ressources. Cordelia, la reine des Bretons, envoie alors son plus fidèle officier, Jolitorax, chercher de l'aide en Gaule, auprès d'un autre petit village, aussi résistant devant les Romains.
C'est là qu'on revoit Astérix et Obélix, occupés à « faire un homme » de Goudurix, le neveu de leur chef. Mais la partie est plutôt perdue que gagnée.
Lorsque Jolitorax arrive dans le village, on lui confie un tonneau de potion magique et trois braves escortes, personne d'autres qu'Astérix et Obélix, accompagnés par Goudurix, car cette mission peut lui servir de voyage initiatique. Mais rien ne se passe comme prévu…
