British nuclear expert’s 17th floor UN death plunge “was not suicide” | Mail Online
A “traumatology” researcher claims UN death was not a suicide and that there may be evidence he was strangled before being dropped from the 17th floor. Apparently the victim was part of a staff that monitors “tremors in countries worldwide to uncover illegal nuclear tests” – more specifically, Iran.
However this was the portion of the article that caught my eye:
Under a year ago, an American died at the IAEA in strikingly similar circumstances, his body being found at the bottom of a stairwell.
Maybe UN stairwells need more monitoring also.

Asteroid blast reveals holes in Earth’s defences – space – 26 October 2009 – New Scientist
On 8 October an asteroid detonated high in the atmosphere above South Sulawesi, Indonesia, releasing about as much energy as 50,000 tons of TNT, according to a NASA estimate released on Friday. That’s about three times more powerful than the atomic bomb that levelled Hiroshima, making it one of the largest asteroid explosions ever observed.
It didn’t cause damage because the explosion occurred about 20 miles above the earth… I find it interesting that natural phenomena such as volcanic eruptions or asteroid explosions are no great concern to environmentalists, but anything created by man (atomic weapons or holes in the ozone layer from global warming) are going to end life as we know it.
There’s a major disconnect here… such a huge disparity between mother nature wreaking havoc and man.

It’s been apparent for a long time that the most narrow-minded place in America is a college campus.
How backwards is that?!!
