Grand Canyon Skywalk

GRAND CANYON WEST, ARIZ. a€" Perched over the Grand Canyon close to a mile above the Colorado River, a massive, multimillion-dollar glass walkway will soon open for business as the centerpiece of a struggling Indian tribe’s plan to lure tourists to its remote reservation.

An engineering marvel or a colossal eyesore, depending on who is describing it, the horseshoe-shaped glass walkway will jut out 70 feet beyond the canyon’s edge on the Hualapai Indian Reservation just west of Grand Canyon Village. Buttressed by 1 million pounds of steel and supporting 90 tons of tempered glass, the see-through deck will give visitors a breathtaking view of the canyon.

"The Racist Roots of Gun Control"

The historical record provides compelling evidence that racism underlies gun control laws — and not in any subtle way. Throughout much of American history, gun control was openly stated as a method for keeping blacks and Hispanics "in their place," and to quiet the racial fears of whites. This paper is intended to provide a brief summary of this unholy alliance of gun control and racism, and to suggest that gun control laws should be regarded as "suspect ideas," analogous to the "suspect classifications" theory of discrimination already part of the American legal system.

Racist arms laws predate the establishment of the United States. Starting in 1751, the French Black Code required Louisiana colonists to stop any blacks, and if necessary, beat "any black carrying any potential weapon, such as a cane." If a black refused to stop on demand, and was on horseback, the colonist was authorized to "shoot to kill." [1] Slave possession of firearms was a necessity at times in a frontier society, yet laws continued to be passed in an attempt to prohibit slaves or free blacks from possessing firearms, except under very restrictively controlled conditions. [2] Similarly, in the sixteenth century the colony of New Spain, terrified of black slave revolts, prohibited all blacks, free and slave, from carrying arms. [3]

"Anglo Saxons came to Australia in chains," he told the chat show Cairo Today, "while we paid our way and came in freedom. We are more Australian than them. Australia is not an Anglo-Saxon country - Islam has deep roots in Australian soil that were there before the English arrived."

"I do think you should ask a couple of questions: Do you hate Australians and do you believe in the Western way of life? We should stop the 50% Australians. If you want to be an Australian then get rid of your other passports."

Censorship is slavery

Crossbow and a will

Seoul - A former South Korean professor shot a judge in the stomach with a crossbow in an apparent protest against one of his rulings, police investigators said on Tuesday.

Kim Myong-Ho, a former mathematics professor at a Seoul university, faces charges of attempted murder for the attack outside the judge’s home late on Monday, police said.

"Police plan to seek an arrest warrant for the attacker on charges of attempted murder," Kim Yong-Sik, a detective handling the case at the Songpa police in southern Seoul, told AFP.

The shooting was apparent payback after Seoul High Court judge Park Hong-Woo upheld on Friday a ruling denying Kim reinstatement to his job.

Kim, sacked from his job in 1995, was waiting outside the judge’s home with a crossbow, bolts, knife and a rope, the detective alleged.

The judge is in hospital in a stable condition.

In a lawsuit dating back to 1996, Kim has unsuccessfully sought reinstatement to his job at the university, according to police who have been questioning him since the attack.

Kim lost his case at a lower court and the High Court upheld the ruling on Friday after he appealed against the decision.

He was allegedly sacked by the school authorities for slandering his colleagues and for negligence in research, reports have said.

He claims he was unfairly fired because he had disclosed fallacy in a college admission test and possible corruption in the administration.

Germanic

BERLIN, Jan. 16 (UPI) — The number of Germans converting to Islam has quadrupled in recent years, a German news magazine reported.

Between July 2004 and June 2005, some 4,000 Germans converted to Islam, four times more cases than in the year before, German news magazine Der Spiegel said in its latest issue, citing a study on Islamic life in Germany financed by the Interior Ministry to be published later this year.

While in recent years mostly women who married Muslim men converted, many people today deliberately and voluntarily converted, the report said, according to the magazine.

Many of the converts have previously been firm Christians who have lost their faith; others simply searched for an alternative.

The current debate around the integration of Muslims in Europe has put Islam on the forefront of Europe’s media scene, causing it to become more widely known as an alternative, Der Spiegel said.
