"The arguments being used by the Greek government to secure debt relief can be traced back to a little-reported speech made to the students of Harvard University on 5 June 1947.

It was there that George Marshall, the then US secretary of state, floated the idea of a European programme of economic reconstruction. The Americans saw that Europe was on the brink of economic collapse. Industrial capacity had been wiped out. Trade had ceased. People were going hungry and, in Marshall’s view, at risk of turning to communism."
Economic assistance under the Marshall plan was important to both countries, but it was the granting of debt relief that made a difference to the Germans

Germany had to murder 6 million people on the off chance they might have been bankers first.

Also we don't have communism to fight anymore. Germany's debit wasn't forgiven because Europe suddenly decided blaming them for WWI was a mistake, it happened because they wanted a wealthy capitalist nation between them and Russia.

An Attack on Press Freedom: SPIEGEL Targeted by US Intelligence

This is the same type of shit we used to condemn the KGB for doing. What happened? How did American Intelligence turn into the KGB?  Aren't we supposed to be better than this?
Revelations from WikiLeaks published this week show how boundlessly and comprehensively American intelligence services spied on the German government. It has now emerged that the US also conducted surveillance against SPIEGEL.

Ahhhh?!!
 
While I think it's possible, I'm not sure it's the "best" explanation. There's plenty of evidence that non-living processes can make complex organic molecules. 

I'm sure we'll know one way or the other in about 10-15 years, but I'm going to avoid premature jubilation on finding life outside of Earth. 
Experts discover dark material is being constantly replenished and say: "Something must be doing that at a fairly prolific rate."

Teddy Roosevelt had The Square Deal. FDR had The New Deal. Bernie Sanders has The Real Deal.
In the context of historical political realignments, Bernie will be as much of a game changer as TR and FDR. 

I think this meme puts Bernie Sanders’s platform and this entire movement in a perfect historical perspective. Like Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Bernie is also a visionary leader who is daring to take on an entrenched system of greed and destruction that has gone too far. For more historical context, watch Ken Burns’ The Roosevelts: http://www.pbs.org/kenburns/the-roosevelts

TR's Square Deal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square_Deal had "the 3 C's": Conservation of natural resources, Control of corporations, and Consumer protection.

FDR's New Deal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Deal had "the 3 R's": Relief, Recovery, and Reform. That is Relief for the unemployed and poor; Recovery of the economy to normal levels; and Reform of the financial system to prevent a repeat depression.

Bernie's Real Deal has The 3 E's: Economy, Equality, and Environment roughly based on his 3 central issues https://berniesanders.com/issues/  Income and Wealth Inequality, Getting Big Money Out of Politics, and Climate Change & Environment.  

It is important that we understand how significant this is, and frame it properly before the corporate media and conservative propagandists try to define Bernie in a negative light. And you know those attacks will start to happen the moment they realize he is not just a dark horse candidate, but is actually going to win the Democratic nomination.

Ufff... Beautiful!
 
"I'll be honest, I like everything about my body." -Amanda Bingson

Healthy doesn't mean skinny or even muscular.

Generally when you look at athletes, you see their muscles and all that stuff; I don't have any of that. My arm is just my arm -- it's not cut, it's not sculpted. I don't have traps bulging out to my ears; I have a neck. I don't have a six-pack. My legs are a little toned, but they aren't bulging out. I'm just dense. I think it's important to show that athletes come in all shapes and sizes.

I never knew that I was the fat kid in school until a boy told me that I was too fat. I thought, "What does that mean?" I had always been so athletic and into sports; I didn't think I was that fat. But everybody wants to fit that skinny ideal picture that we see on billboards all the time, and people would always remind me that that wasn't me. So you just grow a thick skin. Like I said, I'll still whip your ass if we ever got into a fight.
