The youth exodus in Nepal began well before the 7.8 magnitude earthquake on April 25 knocked flat whole villages. Now, however, some in rural Nepal wonder if they'll lose even the young ones who've stayed, complicating not only the huge job of rebuilding after the quake but also the task of improving village life in one of the world's poorest countries.
KHADKA TOLE, Nepal (AP) — Gone, the girl says as she squints into the sun, the air around her shimmering with wind-blown wheat chaff. She points to one house after another nestled in the green hills, most shattered from…

+Brad Gillin , If you can trace your ancestry to the Mediterranean Sea, chances are you have ancestry in the Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Macedonian, Persian, Roman, Ottoman, Greek, Byzantine, Hebrew, Christian, Islamic, Portuguese, Spanish, French and Italian cultures, empires, and languages.

You are probably also mixed with North African, West Asian, and Southern European ancestry.

In ongoing efforts to diversify Silicon Valley's tech sector, Google is embedding engineers at Historically Black Colleges and Universities where they teach, mentor and advise on curriculum. Today 35 percent of African Americans receiving computer science degrees come from those schools, but they don't make their way to Silicon Valley's top tech firms. Google is typical _ about 1 percent of its technical staffers are black.

The #PacquiaoMayweather fight unfolded before a glittering crowd of celebrities, high rollers and people who had enough money to pay for ringside seats going for $40,000 and up. Mayweather received 60 percent of the $300 million purse, depending on pay-per-view sales. The live gate alone was more than $70 million, and the bout was expected to easily smash the pay-per-view record of 2.48 million buys set in 2007 when Mayweather fought Oscar De La Hoya.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The pressure of a $180 million payday never got to Floyd Mayweather Jr., even if the richest fight ever wasn't the best. Using his reach and his jab Saturday night, Mayweather frustrated Manny Pacquiao,…

At the Press conference initially, Floyd did say repeatedly....If you lose it's all in your head.

Manny deserves to feel that he won.

Maybe Floyd believes that he lost.

If Manny had won according to the outcome, Floyd would be celebrating his loss as a win.

That, you can be sure of.


Too bad the judges didn't see how many flurries of punches by Manny were stopped by Floyd's cheating head holds.

Poor sportsmanship.

That's all I can say.

Floyd is no more than a cult leader who has brainwashed many, many people.

Too bad the sport of boxing no longer exists.

A cult leader rules.

The evidence does not indicate the attack was directed by the Islamic State group "but rather inspired by them," Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said. A Twitter account linked to Elton Simpson included images of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American-born radical cleric killed in a CIA drone strike in Yemen, McCaul said.

"Many of my older patients would be totally unenthusiastic about having anyone monitor any part of their life," says Dr. Christine Ritchie, a geriatrics professor at the University of California, San Francisco. "But some would be grateful for the prospect of continuing to live in their own home, rather than an institution where they have less control."

Just chk out Jade Helm, everything is ready they need a MAJOR incident to occur. The Baltimore situation could easily escalate and spread to other major cities with civilian uprisings which in all essence would be enough to justify initiative Jade Helm it's not for terrorists abroad but to quell domestic incidents.
