Interesting but I guess no diving into the pool?
Cliffs are beautiful, terrifying, and exhilarating all at the same time. Can you imagine living inside of a glass house that was built inside of the edge of a cliff? This is what a couple of Greek architects are proposing.

A news report, says Marwan's finger, severed by the men who killed him and his brother's DNA,  he's in Guantanamo Bay Cuba. Will hold to key for closure if the man who made the  bombs in Bali and scores more attacks across Asia is truly dead.
Marwan, his alias and Musang, were his nicknames, it comes from a hard to kill forest deer natives in the deep jungles find difficult to find
and hunt.
Zulkifli bin Hir, Marwan's real name, was believed killed in major police commando raid January 25th, that cost over 70 lives. 44 of those members of a police elite unit.
In withdrawing from the 'hideout',  of the Jemaah Islamiah (JI) bomb-maker Police got into a 15 hour gun-battle with rebels, and renegade gunmen.  
If the DNA test are positive the last at-large suspect in the Bali and series of Jakarta bombings, as well as scores more across the Southern Philippines. 
As authorities look though other evidence gathered, cell phones, a tablet and flash drives are reports filtering out that Marwan turned ISIS recruiter.
As well as that he had allied himself with the BIFF a large rebel group now pleadged to IS leader Al Baghdadi. Even more critical to authorities verification of 'Marwan's minions' over a decade he had training some 300 bomb makers, 30 of whom women - and now the race is on to find them as well.
By rank, he was Asia's most wanted and senior terrorist, a bomb maker whom both Muslim Moro Rebels and the Philippine government say was killed in a police raid in Maguindanao province, on Mindanao Island.
Now the Identification process will decide if the sacrifice of 44 elite commando's was worth it.

A right index finger taken from what is believed to be the corpse of international terrorist and explosives expert Zulkifli Abdul bin Hir, alias Marwan, would be matched with the DNA of his brother Rahmat Abhir, who is detained at the US facility in Guantanamo Bay.

On Rizal Day in 2000 a series of bomb attacks took place in manila injuring scores, the worst of them was at the Blumintritt MRT station.
Its a story I and many others who've covered this kind of thing would be happy not report on again .
As a tense situation spirals more towards the possibility of renewed violence.
Let's pray and hope cooler heads prevail and we will only see things like this in history.
Kapayapaan pagbigyan sa lahat ng pagkakataon.

Introduction
I am the one! Michael Cohen, aka MikeinManila.com
Bragging rights
In my work, I have made many friends, a few enemies, and, done what I can to help others. I have saved rain forests, fought and won most battles I've been in - except the one over weight! Meanwhile I also have been a reporter, anchor, producers, desk editor, and, have nose for news that gets the story. I try to be fair and balanced to all... and I work for very little most of the time. I think of journalism as less of a profession and more a vocation.
