THINKING OUT LOUD

A couple of years ago I had set up a wifi system around my house but it was down, I am thinking of making another one and I am going to name it "wifi republic".

I am going to re-organize my blogs too, now I am testing some templates, trying and testing them at this stage. I am trying to fully utilized the latest blogspot editor. Not doubt that they are better with many needs that are taken care of. However the new blogspot editor lack fluidity where we can used different blog templates for different categories of posts or entries.

However I had thought of this new format. Try
anak matlesen to see the new format. The present PERWI is slightly messy as I had attempted to master the new blogspot editor. I think by doing that I had taken extra "memories".

I am still in the learning curve and I may not proceed with the present idea for I have to evaluate either to follow the existing system that blogspot new editor provide or do the necessary such as amending the html on the free template that I had obtained satisfactorily to get a system that I want.

"The principle of law used to issue an arrest warrant for Omar al-Bashir could extend to former US President Bush over claims officials from his Administration may have engaged in torture by using coercive interrogation techniques on terror suspects," Crane was quoted as saying by the New Zealand Herald on Saturday.[more]

UN Security Council Split on Sudan Expulsions

07/03/2009 | almanartv
UN Security Council members failed on Friday to agree a joint response to Sudan's decision to expel 13 humanitarian groups from the country. Western diplomats said the 15-member council had agreed to express their "concern" about the situation in Sudan during discussions Friday, but were unable to agree to a joint statement.

According to one diplomat, who asked not to be named, China -- a veto-wielding member of the council -- refused to sign up to a text which called on Sudan to reverse its decision. The Khartoum government announced it would expel the agencies after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for President Omar al-Beshir for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity carried out in Darfur, western Sudan.[more]

Israeli warplanes await S-300 sale to Iran

Russia's transfer of its S-300 air-defense systems to Iran would be the trigger point for Israel to take Iran to war, says a US think-tank.

The report says the potential transfer of the S-300 systems to Iran "gives rise to the grave risk that Israel could feel compelled to act before the cost of doing so is too high." [more]
