More #RealGravity images tonight as #Gravity is up for awards at the #Oscars2014: Astronaut Bruce McCandless II, is seen further away from the confines and safety of his ship than any previous astronaut has ever been on Feb. 12, 1984. This space first was made possible by the Manned Manuevering Unit or MMU, a nitrogen jet propelled backpack. After a series of test maneuvers inside and above Space Shuttle Challenger's payload bay, McCandless went "free-flying" to a distance of 320 feet away from the Orbiter. This stunning orbital panorama view shows McCandless out there amongst the black and blue of Earth and space.

Some proper, clear, easy to understand information
Okay, I did the voiceover, but the information was put together by people who are actually clever. Worth a look.

Truly Nasty
So you go to a peaceful demonstration with your son, you sit down in the road with a lot of other people. You haven't hurt anyone or broken anything.
Then two thuggish brutes attack them.
One of them presses his thumb into the sensitive area just below your son's ear causing intense pain.
Without question the bully boy in the blue hat is really enjoying this process, he is carrying out his duty with gusto and enthusiasm. 
I have seen the video footage of this moment, they don't do the same to the mum whose arm and hand are just visible but they were both arrested.
The mum just happens to be Caroline Lucas, the Green MP. The only member of parliament who has publicly come out and said that just possibly, the insane last ditch con job of #fracking  being foisted on us may not be such a brilliant idea.
Why were they sitting in the road?
They were just trying to draw attention to the fact that the big boys are in power, I'm referring to Cuadrilla, Haliburton etc, forget the bloody government, they are just PR for the fossil corporations, and you do not mess with the big boys.
They do exactly as they please, drill, burn, frack, pump and dump.
So if some snot nosed kid and his sissy hippie mum get in the way, send in the thugs and seriously fuck them up.
I am ashamed of those police officers, I've met many policemen and I admire their courage and bravery. Any decent policeman should also be ashamed that there are brutal bullies like this within their ranks, encouraged to behave so brutally by their dim-wit superiors.
The police are being paid, by us, to support the profit only activities of multi-national corporations, to allow the 'perfectly lawful' activity of fracking to take place.
Who made the law, who lobbied and bribed, bullied and blackmailed the law to be passed?
I say nothing.
Although a recent YouGov poll discovered that when asked which they would rather have in their immediate neighbourhood, 2,068 people replied thus
* -40% in favour solar farms, 25% wind turbines, 10% nuclear and 4% #shale *
Of course the poll will make zero difference.
This government is not interested in democracy, they are only in power to supply the facilities for their paymasters, the drill and burn brigade.
Fracking will not result in lower fuel costs, it will not 'create jobs' it will only result in further profits for the most powerful most influential and most wealthy corporations the human race has ever created.
Shameful.

Disgusting!
 
A group called the Dallas Safari Club is auctioning off the chance to hunt and shoot an endangered black rhinoceros—one of roughly 5,055 left—to raise money for conservation. The decision has sparked outrage around the world.
Dallas Safari Club hopes to raise money for conservation, but critics pounce.

The photos show police using dogs and fire hoses during civil rights demonstrations in Birmingham, beating Rodney King, killing of Kelly Thomas and using pepper spray at Occupy Wall Street. While the patent does use "covert police or government operations" as an example of an application, ...
