Brilliant 12-min video explaining the Eurozone debt crisis
Animated for clarity.
How did the European Debt Crisis begin? This video explains how countries in the Eurozone built up such troublesome debt.

Typical hunting propaganda; full of emotional rhetoric and overstatements. Not worth the time spent watching.

This is what they call conservation in South Africa
It is easy not to see the barbaric cruelty if you conveniently wear a blindfold, called 'Sustainable Use', provided by the hunting industry.

Lion Farming in SA
Go to places like Moreson if you want to pet a lion cub before it grows up and gets shot.
Canned hunting is a fast-growing business in South Africa, where thousands of lions are being bred on farms to be shot by wealthy foreign trophy-hunters, writes Patrick Barkham

It makes me realise how interconnected we all are.  And that animals belong to the whole wide world, not just a separate country or people.  Therefore its the whole wide world's responsibility to roar out.
