Here is a video I took of the oil spill clean-up. I was in the staging area near the small shopping center. It took me several hours to upload because of my slowwwww connection. Sorry for the shakiness; when I use the zoom, there is an increased shaking effect, sadly.
Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan offered a woeful outlook of America’s economic situation on Sunday, saying the crisis with the country’s financial institutions was as dire as he had ever seen in his long career, and predicting that one or more of those institutions would likely collapse in the near future.
URUMQI, China (AP) – A U.S. group that monitors extremist Web sites says that a Chinese Islamic group has posted a new video that shows a burning Olympics logo and an explosion over a venue for the Beijing Games.
The video, reported Thursday by the IntelCenter, follows the posting of a similar video dated July 23. Both are attributed to the Turkistan Islamic Party, which experts say is an offshoot of a secessionist group from China’s Central Asian frontier with ties to al-Qaida.
IntelCenter said the latest video was dated Aug. 1 and features “graphics showing a burning Olympics logo and an explosion imposed over one of the venues.”
Comments on the video were in the language of the Uighurs, a Muslim minority in western China with a long history of tense relations with the central government. No translation was immediately available.
