Republic of Molossia hosts state visit

Thursday, April 24, 2008

On April 22, President Kevin Baugh of the Republic of Molossia, a micronation located in Nevada, announced that his country hosted its first ever official state visit the day before.

Grand Duke Paul of the Grand Duchy of Greifenberg, another micronation, arrived in Molossia at 9:39 AM MST (Molossian Standard Time) on Monday. He spent much of the day with President Baugh discussing the current state of the intermicronational community, as well as the League of Small Nations, a near dormant organization dedicated to the prosperity of all land-claiming micronations.

Besides the meeting itself, President Baugh took Grand Duke Paul to nearby Virginia City, Nevada for lunch. Following this, both returned to Molossia where the meeting continued. The visit officially ended late in the afternoon. Some time later, Grand Duke Paul returned to Molossia for an informal dinner. He returned to his country the next day.

The Republic of Molossia and Grand Duchy of Greifenberg are not recognized by any major countries or international organizations. However, both are by other micronations.

In March, Wikinews held an interview with President Baugh.

Suspect in model Jasmine Fiore’s murder found dead

Monday, August 24, 2009

Fugitive Ryan Jenkins was found dead in a motel room in Hope, Canada, about 150 kilometers from Vancouver. Police are still trying to determine how long he was at the Thunderbird Motel before he hanged himself.

The RCMP are now looking for an unidentified woman who helped Jenkins check himself into the motel last Thursday. She is described as an attractive blonde in her early 20’s and driving a tinted Chrysler PT Cruiser with Alberta plates.

Ryan Jenkins was wanted for the brutal murdering of his ex-wife, swimsuit model Jasmine Fiore. Her badly mutilated body was discovered in a dumpster southeast of Los Angeles on August 15th. Her teeth and fingers were removed, making identification difficult. She was identified through serial numbers on her breast implants.

Jenkins’s boat was found on Wednesday, south of Vancouver, not far from the US-Canada border. Police believe he drove from California to Blaine, Washington and then took a boat to Point Roberts, Washington where he crossed the border on foot into Tsawwassen, Canada. The RCMP confirmed early Sunday that Jenkins was somewhere in Canada and he should turn himself in. He was considered armed and dangerous.

Ryan Jenkins is from Calgary and moved to Los Angeles after appearing in a reality television show on the VH1 network, “Megan Wants a Millionaire“.

There were a couple of false sightings during the manhunt. One man was stopped on a flight from Toronto to Vancouver for using an alias. Another man was taken off a Vancouver transit bus because he looked similar and was interested in the news story.

U.S. Marshals were offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to his capture.

Fort Lauderdale Airport shooting suspect appears in court

Thursday, January 12, 2017

Esteban Ruiz Santiago, 26, appeared in federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida this Monday. Santiago stands accused of a shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Friday at 12:55 p.m. local time (1755 UTC) at the lower level baggage claim area in Terminal 2 of the airport. The incident killed five people and injured six, with roughly another 40 people injured in the crowd while hastily evacuating from the scene.

Police drove Santiago from the Broward County main jail to the court building in the morning. At the hearing, Santiago attended handcuffed and also cuffed at the ankles, guarded by at least eight police officers. The Magistrate, Judge Alicia Valle, questioned Santiago on his finances. The prosecutor also sought a detention order for public safety and flight risk. The hearing took about 20 minutes. The Judge ordered Santiago a public defender, and set a detention hearing for January 17, and the arraignment hearing for January 23. After the hearing, the police returned Santiago to the Broward County main jail.

At the hearing, Santiago had admitted to earning US$2,100 a month as a security guard in Alaska, while only having about US$10 of savings in a bank, and no other property. The Judge also informed Santiago of the penalties that may be imposed on him in the case he was convicted.

On Friday, authorities said, Santiago arrived from Anchorage, Alaska with only one baggage item — a suitcase with an unloaded Glock 9 mm semi-automatic handgun. Upon arriving at the airport, he picked up the suitcase at the baggage claim carousel and loaded it in a nearby bathroom. Then he walked out and started shooting people, at random according to a witness. People started to run and hide, and Santiago continued to shoot. Then Santiago stopped shooting, witnesses claiming he ran out of ammunition. The police arrested him. He did not resist the arrest.

According to officials, Santiago received a mental health evaluation in November, after he traveled to an FBI office and walked in alleging his head was controlled by the government and he heard voices urging him to watch ISIS propaganda. At the time of that incident he left his infant son and a gun in a car, and the infant was given to mother’s care. His gun was seized at the time of that incident, but Santiago was given it back on December 8.

Santiago traveled from Anchorage, Alaska to Minneapolis to Fort Lauderdale Airport on a Delta Airlines flight. Investigations were ongoing to determine the motivation for the incident. No evidence was found of Santiago communicating with any other individual in relation to the incident; he seemed to be acting alone. In an interview, Santiago admitted to having planned the shooting in advance when purchasing the airline ticket. According to CNN, Esteban Santiago previously belonged to the Alaska Army National Guard, including a ten-month stint in Iraq where he was given a combat action badge. According to Santiago’s family, his mental health issues started after his ten-month tour in Iraq, after which he began to tell them about auditory hallucinations.

All flights to and from Fort Lauderdale Airport were suspended by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) until Saturday morning, and roads in and out of the airport closed.

Santiago was born in New Jersey. He spent his childhood in Puerto Rico, an unincorporated US territory in the northeastern Caribbean Sea.

At the time of the incident, it was legal in the US to transport guns in a hard-sided and locked container by air. In Florida, it was also legal to carry a gun in an airport terminal without removing the gun from its case.

Molson beer buys into the craft market

Sunday, April 24, 2005

Molson Canada picks up Creemore Springs Brewery Ltd. as the company maneuvers to make an entry into the craft beer market.

Creemore Springs of Creemore, Ontario, produces the locally popular Creemore Springs lager. The merger will allow the company to retain its identity.

“The Creemore brand image and brewing craft will remain unchanged,” Creemore Springs Brewery chairman Bill Wilder said. “Molson understands and appreciates what is special about the Creemore brand and this makes them a great purchaser for the company.”

Industry observers are mixed on the benefits of the deal for Molson. The CBC reports one analyst suggests Molson may be trying to replicate the success of rival Labatt’s premium beers. Others point out the small brewery model does not scale up well, and the attraction of a “boutique” beer fades in large-scale production.

Molson Coors Brewing Co., formed by the US$3.4 billion merger in February of two family-run companies, Canadian Molson and U.S. Coors brewing companies, is the fifth largest brewer in the world by volume. (TSX:TAP.NV, NYSE:TAP)

Caravan Excursion The Excursion That Must Be Done

First I started my caravan reservation trip, I had to find acaravan rental companyfor easy cruising on the Internet I found a car rental company that promised me a caravan rental at attractive prices and so after a short conversation with a sales representative I decided to make the reservation and I ordered a trailer for five people that contains all What it takes to make a week-long trip around the country that I love so much.

Start a caravan trip on the right foot

First of all it has been treating life not related to any trailers at all if you want to start your morning with the right foot you will start sports. We all know that sports raises the mood and does a lot of good in the soul and not just good for the body. We started our morning when we arrived in the Northern Region where we met the company representatives who gave us a new and advanced trailer that had to meet all our needs throughout the week after all the trailer should be the same that will take us from place to place and a hotel that will give us a vacation experience where we can Enjoy the vacation we chose.

We got our car trailer and got off to a good start, but my wife told me that soon she wanted to get on the wheel was that I didn’t think at all that during her vacation she was going to bed and I was going to drive I told them a problem so I would go to bed and I laughed.

We drove for 4 hours in a row until we reached our first destination which is a caravan park Let’s do the night and we could feel like a young girlfriend who is now out on their big walk of their lives and will come to the place to light the fire and take out the guitarWe spent the night there and I have to say that I got up in the morning to find out that I’m not sleeping in my bed to sleep in a quality trailer with proper air conditioner that can make your trip out of bed.

Where to go for a successful RV trip?

The next morning we got up full of energy and decided that today we travel until we find a good place to sleep and really on that day we drove almost 9 hours in a row and finished the whole country and after 9 hours even our fuel tank was already showing signs of I must rest or at least get a new refill we found the place Let’s decide to move the trailer throughout the week. This place is an amazing place in the north that overlooks the whole green area and offered us a place to stay for a few shekels which was supposed to fund the electricity and water we consume along the shiloh so we enjoyed the sun we decided to stay there for the rest of our trip and our mobile trailer we basically became a home Static hotel. .

But can a good trailer also be a replacement for the bed?I have to tell you that after four 4 nights I slept in the trailer, probably my body was already saying come on, give me my bed.I got up with back pain and I would now have to go to myprivate physiotherapistto ask him to do physical therapy for me because of the hard week I was going through.In any case, I’m sure after that physical therapy treatment I’ll forget about the back pain and all I remember will be just the trip I did in my wonderful trailer.So I highly recommend doing this trip with family and people you love because it will make you pass on this experience in the best way that it can be no matter how much you need to travel by car or no matter how crowded you will always remember the good things you had. During this week

But now let’s go back for a moment to talk about the fun things that are of course the trip and not my back pain. The trip was very good He considered us the list of trips among the first places even some say as for example my little boy stopped it was the best trip he ever made in his life (no wonder this is his second trip on his first trip was with grandparents). We highly recommend a caravan trip which gives you freedom from work including the crazy pace of life and forgets both the need for traveling and the need to find accommodation every time. The big advantage between traveling with a caravan is to really enjoy what situation the home is on your back like turtle. It turns out turtles live well. They take life in Izzy and never have to look for a place to sleep like that. We felt on our caravan trip we could literally travel anywhere without planning that when your house is everywhere you can change the place but always return to your usual and familiar corner.

Rehabilitating a long-awaited caravan trip and freedom of life is a recommendation I must recommend. Take time off from work and take a stroll in the open spaces and in our beautiful big world because it’s worth every minute and all the possibilities are open. By the way I highly recommend the company from which I rented the trailer they gave it to me with everything needed and even agreed that I would return it six hours after the original return date and we determined that it was a very, very determined net. Anyone who wants to call this company autocaravan can be found online.

I am very happy that I took a walk like this and especially recommend you thank you very much see you on the next trip

US adds 173,000 jobs in August; unemployment rate drops to seven year low

US adds 173,000 jobs in August; unemployment rate drops to seven year low
Posted by Admin , No Comments

Monday, September 7, 2015

The US economy added 173,000 jobs in August, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. The unemployment rate fell from 5.3 to 5.1 percent, the lowest since April 2008.

Although August job gains were lower than most economists forecast, job growth numbers for June and July were revised upwards by a combined 44,000. Average job gains over the past three months stand at 221,000, compared to March-May’s 189,000 monthly average. Over the past twelve months, job growth has averaged 247,000 per month.

Average hourly earnings rose 0.3 percent, or 8 cents, marking the largest increase in earnings in seven months. Hourly earnings had risen by 6 cents in July. Wages have risen by 2.2 percent over the past year.

Job growth in August was primarily concentrated in the health care and social assistance, financial activities, and professional and business services sectors. Those three areas of the economy added a combined 108,000 jobs. Food service and drinking places employment increased by 26,000 over the month, and other economic sectors saw employment hold steady. Manufacturing, on the other hand, saw employment decline by 17,000 in August. A stronger dollar and worldwide economic weakness make US exports less desirable, leading to a flattening in manufacturing employment so far this year after steadily rising in the early years of the US economic recovery.

The solid overall job gains led analysts to slightly raise expectations for a decision by the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates this month. Investors raised the likelihood of a September rate increase from 26 percent before the jobs report to 30 percent, and stocks dropped by over one percent on Friday. “The payrolls data is certainly good enough to allow for a Fed rate hike in September,” said Deutsche Bank’s head of currency strategy, Alan Ruskin. “The big question is still whether financial market volatility will scupper the plans.”

“This is the first time the market has looked at a Fed meeting and really has no idea what the Fed is going to do,” said Mark Kepner, a New Jersey equity trader with Themis Trading. “Right now you’re looking at the overall uncertainty and that’s what’s hanging on the market. I don’t think this number in and of itself changes how somebody’s going to vote.”

New ‘Star Wars’ film to be released in August
Posted by Admin , No Comments

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

George Lucas has announced that there will be one last Star Wars movie to end the saga, but it won’t have any actors visible.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars, an animated film is scheduled to be released into theaters on August 15 of this year.

“I felt there were a lot more ‘Star Wars’ stories left to tell. I was eager to start telling some of them through animation and, at the same time, push the art of animation forward,” said Lucas in a statement to the media.

Lucas says that although the film is animated, people can expect the same kind of galactic space battles and action that all the other Star Wars films have. The approximate running time of the film is 100 minutes.

The film is produced by Warner Brothers and Lucasfilm LTD. The new movie is also set to continue as an animated, 30 minute “mini-movie” series this autumn. The show can be seen on the Cartoon Network.

Have You Ever Bought Knitting Supplies from an Online Knitting Shop?


John Arthur Thomas

If you answered no then you could be missing out on a great selection of knitting supplies, and some great savings.

Growing Popularity of the Online Knitting Community & the Online Yarn Store

Knitting has undergone a major re-emergence and revival over the past decade. It is no longer the domain of grandmothers sitting by the fire but instead it has become popular amongst younger people who see it as their opportunity to express their own creativity. Celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Winona Rider, Dakota Fanning and Cameron Diaz are all keen knitters and have done a lot to bring knitting to the forefront of popular culture, and the work of graffiti knitters has literally brought knitting to the streets of many cities around the world.

The knitters of today rely heavily on the Internet, and indeed the knitting community on the net is ever expanding. Just type knitting into any search engine and you will find knitting blogs, knitting stores, instruction videos and forums that cover every topic imaginable. The internet has allowed knitters from around the world to connect with and learn from each other in a way that was not possible just 15 years ago.
