Media manipulation: Time Magazine just deleted 200,000 votes for Edward Snowden as Time Person of the Year. Those votes now show up for Miley Cyrus.

"Winton kept quiet about his humanitarian exploits for many years, until his wife Grete found a detailed scrapbook in their attic in 1988. It contained lists of the children, including their parents' names, and the names and addresses of the families that took them in.

"By sending letters to these addresses, 80 of 'Winton's children' were found in Britain. The world found out about his work in 1988 during an episode of the BBC television programme That's Life! when he was invited as a member of the audience. At one point Winton's scrapbook was shown, and his achievements explained. The host of the programme, Esther Rantzen, asked whether any in the audience owed their lives to Winton, and, if so, to stand – more than two dozen people surrounding Winton rose and applauded."

Google Maps for the Human Genome. I still haven't figured out how to find out what it all means, but I guess that's no surprise!

Nobody look, Napoleon's new clothes were apparently sold to him by SG and unless you are a banker, they are apparently invisible. (French fashion?)

This is written by a native of Peru. Very insightful.
