Keeping a sense of perspective...:
Early reports suggest that it was in fact a British Soldier who was hacked to death on a London street earlier today.
This is a disgusting event and the two assailants are in different hospitals under guard.
This is without doubt a life changing event for all connected and concerned.
Where I rather lose the plot is with the scale of the media apoplexy and feeding frenzy that seems to have been unleashed.
Davis Cameron says 'The nation will not buckle in the face of this attack' !
Buckle ??? FFS ! What planet does he live on ?
In the US today, maybe 10 or 15 people were shot dead and possibly hundreds wounded. Yes, just another day.
In WW2 the RAF bombed Hamburg. This raid generated a fire-storm. It killed 40,000 and wounded a further 30,000.
Now THAT is an attack.
One dead soldier, very sad. That is all.

Stockholm riots raise questions about immigration policy:
The sight of burning cars in a dozen suburbs of Stockholm on Tuesday night has shocked Sweden and shaken its image of tolerance and equality. But the rioting is also raising a simple, devastating question: is Sweden facing its own Paris or London moment when it is forced to confront long-simmering questions about the integration of immigrants?
“This is a wake-up call for decision makers and Swedish society as a whole,” says Awad Hersi, a Stockholm city councillor from near where the riots started. But Mr Hersi, of Somali origin, argues that the situation is not yet as serious as it was in London in 2011 or Paris in 2005. “There are differences with Stockholm: the scale, the methods are different. Stockholm still has a chance but it is a matter of
Police on Wednesday were drafting in reinforcements to prepare for a potential fourth night of unrest. What started in the north-western suburb of Husby had by Tuesday night spread to about a dozen different suburbs north and south of Stockholm. The rioters were reported to be mostly young immigrants of African and Middle Eastern origin.
There appeared little co-ordination between the outbreaks of unrest, which mostly involved torching cars or attacking buildings and stoning the emergency services. “We are grubby and totally shattered. It is burning everywhere,” one policeman told Swedish TV.
The unrest has provoked intense soul-searching in a country that prides itself for both its generous welfare state and open immigration policy. Sweden accepted 44,000 asylum seekers in 2012, up by nearly a half from a year earlier. Among industrial countries, it has the second-largest amount of asylum seekers relative to its population, according to UN figures. Sweden prides itself on treating them well, offering them benefits and housing as well as free Swedish lessons on arrival.
But now some are questioning whether that is enough. The big problem in a suburb such as Husby, where immigrants represent about 80 per cent of the population, is unemployment, particularly among the young. Swedish youth unemployment stands at 25.1 per cent, about triple the level of overall joblessness. And much of that youth unemployment is concentrated among immigrants from countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan or Syria.
“Sweden isn’t that different to other countries when it comes to problems of integration in larger cities where we have these suburbs with a lot of unemployment,” says Per Adman, an associate professor at Uppsala university. He points out that the media often refers to “unemployed young men” without specifying that they are predominantly immigrants.
The riots may have reopened the debate but Mr Adman sees a society divided in its reaction to them. “Some people claim this is just criminals acting; others say it’s a result of segregation,” he says.
On the ground in Husby, there is no surprise that the response tends towards the latter. Mr Hersi condemns the violence but says: “The violence we have seen is just a symptom, it is not a root cause. The root cause is that in this area the young men especially feel that they don’t have the same opportunities. Most of them if you ask them don’t want anything more than a job to go to in the morning.”
That discrepancy between opportunities for those born in Sweden and outside was also underlined by the OECD in its most recent report on the country. It found that the unemployment rate for Swedish-born people was about 6 per cent against about 16 per cent for those born abroad.
Immigration experts say the pattern of Swedish immigration has also changed. After the war, the country wanted low-skilled workers for its manufacturing plants, while now it faces an influx of asylum seekers with little education who have difficulty finding a job.
This has coincided with a jump in inequality. Although Sweden is still one of the most egalitarian countries in the world, it has experienced the biggest rise in inequality in the past 15 years.
“Historically, Swedish society has been very homogenous. But over the past 10 years there has been a big shift and some suburbs now are ‘world villages’. The development has gone very fast and much of society hasn’t understood the nature of the situation,” Mr Hersi says.
Worries over immigration have also changed the political mood. The third-largest party in the country is now the Swedish Democrats, an anti-immigrant party with its roots in the neo-Nazi movement. Perhaps as a result, the ruling centre-right coalition has toughened up its language. Tobias Billström, minister for migration, said in February: “Sweden is one of the countries that receives the most immigrants in the EU. That's not sustainable . . . Today, people are coming to households where the only income is support from the municipality. Is that reasonable?"

Stockholm riots spread in third night of unrest:
Rioting in Stockholm spread to as many as a dozen suburbs in a third consecutive night of unrest that has reopened the debate about how well integrated immigrants are in Sweden.
Cars were set on fire all over the Swedish capital on Tuesday night and early on Wednesday, while in several suburbs police and other emergency services were pelted with stones, Swedish television reported.
Stockholm police, who made several arrests, said the situation was made more complicated by the number of suburbs where unrest was recorded. But they also noted that the initial censored of Husby, home to a large immigrant population, was calmer on Tuesday night.
“It is very similar to what we have seen in London or Paris but not yet on that scale. But it is a sign of a similar problem; it is a sign of failing integration,” said Per Adman, associate professor at Uppsala University, before the latest unrest.
Sweden attracts one of the highest numbers of immigrants in the EU compared with the size of its population. That has led to a fierce debate about their integration, especially as youth unemployment is particularly high among immigrants.
The rioting was apparently sparked after police last weekend killed a 69-year-old man accused of brandishing a machete. About 100 people were involved in clashes with the police on both Sunday and Monday nights.
On Tuesday night, fires were reported in Husby, the neighbouring suburbs of Tensta and Kista, as well as Jakobsberg, Sollentuna, Norsborg, Värberg, Skarpnäck, Skärholmen, Fittja and Bredäng, according to SVT, Swedish public television.
Stockholm police had said on Tuesday night they were calling in extra help in Husby after saying criminals from outside the area had been stoking the trouble. In turn, Megafonen, a local youth organisation, has accused the police of using racial slurs and argued the riots were a reaction to alleged police brutality.
Swedish politicians reacted to the disorder in a nuanced manner on Tuesday. “The core of this is a group of young, angry men who think by force they can change society,” said Fredrik Reinfeldt, prime minister. “Let us be very clear: this is not OK. The use of violence is not a way to express freedom of speech in Sweden.”
Stefan Löfven, leader of the opposition Social Democratic party, which is ahead in the polls before next year’s parliamentary elections, said: “We must be clear and tough on crime and show it is not acceptable. But we also need to have a discussion on the causes of crime, and I’m talking primarily about long-term unemployment.”
Sweden’s reputation for equality and tolerance has been tested by a series of incidents in recent years, including a number of racially motivated killings in the southern city of Malmö.
Experts say that while the Nordic country successfully integrated its immigrants in the 1960s and 1970s it has struggled to do so in the past decade, with many blaming a lack of jobs for low-skilled workers. Youth unemployment was 25.1 per cent in March, above the EU average, even as the overall rate was 8.4 per cent and below the average.
Racial tensions have led to the rise of the Sweden Democrats, an anti-immigrant group that is now the third-largest political party in the country.

Major incident in South London with reports of shootings and a beheading:
While the incident has yet to be confirmed, local residents and social media users report that two black men ran over a white man in a car, before "hopping out" and attempting to decapitate him. It is not yet known if the attempt was successful, though reports suggest that the two men were shot by armed police arriving at the scene. UPDATE 16:30: An eyewitness told LBC Radio that, "five feet away there was a blue Vauxhall if I'm not mistaken" that has "crashed into a signpost".
There were, he said, "two guys with what we know know is the victim, who was on the floor. We thought they were helping him."
He then said his partner let out an "almighty scream" and saw "big knives like that from a butchers". He stated there was "no samurai sword" but the attackers were "hacking at the poor guy [on the floor]" with a "meat cleaver".
One of the men is then reported to have pulled a gun from the car and told witnesses to get back in their cars. The eyewitness then told LBC Radio that the men were "chopping this guy to pieces, literally hacking at something like it was a piece of meat. These guys were animals. They then dragged the poor guy, he was obviously dead.... dragged him from the pavement an dumped his body in the middle of the road".
The men are then reported to have stood at the side of the road, waving a gun and knives about. Armed response units apparently took 20 minutes to arrive on the scene, and police "at the end of the road" did not respod to the event, according to the eyewitness, because they were not armed and able to deal with the incident. The eyewitness said there were "brave women" with the man on the floor who were trying to shield the body. "There were people filming it on their phones". One of the attackers then approached a bus and told people to take photos of him, after the incident.
Reports suggest that a serving solider has been "hacked to bits" in Woolwich by two men with "meat cleavers" and guns

Turkish Airlines bans air hostesses from wearing red lipstick and nail polish in new row over 'creep:
Lipstick ban: Flight attendants on Turkish Airlines have been ordered not to wear red lipstick or nail polish in a move attacked as 'too religious'
Female flight attendants at Turkey’s national airline have been banned from wearing red lipstick and nail polish, prompting renewed fears from secular Turks the country is becoming more Islamic.
Turkish Airlines, Europe's fourth-biggest carrier, said the ban was aimed at keeping crews 'artless and well-groomed with makeup in pastel tones' because a natural look improved communication with passengers.
But critics say it reflects the creeping influence of the government's Islamic values.
The new rule will be imposed just one year after the airline lifted its ban on headscarves among its staff.
‘This new guideline is totally down to Turkish Airlines management's desire to shape the company to fit its own political and ideological stance,’ Atilay Aycin, the president of Turkish Airlines' worker's union, said.
‘No one can deny that Turkey has become a more conservative, religious country.’
Turkey is 99 per cent Muslim, but the NATO state and European Union candidate has a secular constitution.
There have been concerns in recent years that an increasingly wealthy but pious middle-class is emerging in Turkey that wants to practise its religion more freely.
Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan's ruling AK Party, which traces its roots to a banned Islamic party, has also come under strong pressure from grassroots supporters to relax the state's control over the expression of religion.
Turkey has remained a secular consitution since the modernising reforms of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, who threw religion out of public life in the 1920s and 1930s as he rebuilt Turkey from the ruins of the Ottoman Empire. The powerful military views itself as the ultimate guarantor of Turkey's secular order and has ousted four democratically elected governments in the past 50 years, most recently in 1997 when with public support it drove out a cabinet it viewed as too Islamist. The current government, led by Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, is run by the Muslim AK party which has its roots in a banned Islamic movement. He is currently serving his third term as Prime Minister heading the conservative faith based Justice and Development Party, also known as the AK Party. He founded the AK Party in 2001 upon his release from prison where the former mayor of Istanbul, served ten months for reciting an illegal Islamist poem during a public address in the province of Siirt. As he was banned from public office following the speech including the poem, he could not become Prime Minister when the party won the general election in 2002, a ban which was lifted in 2003. However, under Erdogan’s leadership the country has relaxed restrictions on religious expression, including lifting the ban on head scarves in courts and schools.

Well I am new to forex, forums, etc. I'm really excited to get started in forex. Looking at demo accounts now.
Also looking at other ways to invest. A friend of mine suggested crowdfunding as an option. Supposedly he's done pretty well with it. The idea's pretty new- you can help to fund new startups with the help of different sites that sell portions of equity in the companies. I know of a few sites already that seem interesting like kickstarter, crowdcube, seedrs, and uinvest. The last one seems to be the one I was most interested in. Their people seemed really ready to help, and I liked their approach to the whole crowdfunding thing.
The whole thing seems like a really good idea with possibilities... but has anyone else out there had any experience with this? Any suggestions?

Mikael Jalving - Hour 1 - Absolut Sweden: A Country Undergoing :
Michael Jalving is a Danish commentator, writer, lecturer and political debater. He writes for Jyllands Posten, which a few years ago published the famous Muhammad cartoons, which led to international controversy and burning of embassies. The newspaper announced that this publication was an attempt to contribute to the debate regarding criticism of Islam and self-censorship. Jalving previously published the book "Me and Muhammad" but he is best known in Sweden for his book, "Absolute Sweden - a country undergoing change," which we'll discuss in this program. The book is critical of mass immigration and takes a deeper look at the troubled past and worrying future of Scandinavia's big brother. In the second hour we discuss Sweden's role in World War II and the so called neutrality, while selling iron ore and ball bearings to both sides of the war. The problem of Sweden extends way beyond the current issues of mass immigration and we'll try to get to the root of the ongoing cultural erosion which is currently taking place. Michael will talk about the economic success Sweden experienced in the 70's - somewhat of an enigma considering that it was a quasi-socialist welfare state that was dictated by Olof Palme and his minions, where social engineering or social planning was one of the most important driving ideologies at that time and still is. We'll go deeper into the psychology of a nation, which thinks it can control all conflict - detached from reality and nature. Jalving continues on anti-individual Jante Law and how it has shaped the country as well as the concept of the "folkhome," a utopian and egalitarian ideology that sought to perfect the state and the collective within it. The ant like society of the 60s and 70s marched on towards a totalitarian collectivist state and it even went so far as to nationalize or socialize the profits of private companies. Later, we move on to talk about the rise of right wing parties in Europe and ask why. We'll also discuss why freedom of speech is under threat and censorship and surveillance is on the rise.

Council bans rugby club from playing national anthem:
A rugby club built on land once owned by the Queen has been banned from playing the national anthem through loudspeakers by town hall bureaucrats.
The club says it is the only one in the country not allowed to play God Save the Queen – which it wanted the crowd to sing along to at the grand opening of a big international match.
Bosses are welcoming an expected crowd of 1,000 to Scarborough Rugby Club to watch England Colleges play the Irish Exiles a week tomorrow.
Each nation’s songs are usually played and sung for the opening of the tournament.
But the club – in Scalby, near Scarborough – is bound by strict council rules which forbid amplified music.
Council bosses fear local villagers will be annoyed by the noise.
The club was only built because of a land swap deal with land owners The Duchy of Lancaster,
which manages much of the Royal estate.
Club officials hope to get around the ban by fielding a brass band or jazz band onto the pitch. A spokesman said: “As long as the music is not amplified we are okay.”
Otherwise the crowds will have to take their seats in silence for the kick off.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage said: “The National Anthem in total is usually only 60 seconds long. I would have thought there was a perfectly good reason here for bending the rules. I’m utterly appalled.”
Scarborough Tory MP Robert Goodwill said: “I know there’s an issue in terms of the use of the PA system at the club. But surely in the case of our National Anthem there should be a dispensation.”
Scarborough Council says it imposed the ban because of complaints from local villagers about noise and the arrangements had been in place for

Richo: Gillard will destroy Labor:
A loss of between of between 30 and 40 seats is on the cards, a slaughter of epic proportions. It would take Labor a decade to recover… The next generation of political Labor leaders, with the exception of Bill Shorten, would all be gone.
You would be entitled to wonder just how much the Labor Party can take… Given that a budget must be prepared by May which must deliver $15 billion of cuts just to allow for the NDIS and the Gonski reforms, the political pain would be immense. There is a real chance that there won’t be much left of the modern Labor Party at the end of her reign....
She could ditch the NDIS and Gonski legacy she has been determined to leave behind as a permanent reminder of her prime ministership. That would at least give Wayne Swan some chance of preparing a budget that won’t destroy a party he has served all his working life.
Most likely though, she will hang on and try to tough it out… This would mean that the legacy Gillard leaves behind would be the near destruction of the modern Labor Party.

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the president’s secret service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you.” She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant,” to which Michelle responded, “No. If I had married him, he would now be the President.”
