Auschwitz: Drone Video Of Nazi Concentration Camp

 

 

 

Published on Jan 27, 2015

” Drone video shows the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp as it is today – 70 years after it was liberated by Soviet troops. The camp in Poland is now maintained as a World Heritage Site and is visited by thousands of tourists and survivors every year. Auschwitz was the largest camp established by the Germans during World War II. More than a million people – the vast majority of them Jews – died there between 1940, when it was built, and 1945, when it was liberated by the Soviet army.

  Railway tracks into Auschwitz-Birkenau – Trains filled with victims from throughout occupied Europe arrived at the camp almost every day between 1942 and the summer of 1944.

  Ruins of wooden huts at Birkenau – Birkenau (or Auschwitz II) was erected in 1941 solely as a death camp, the wooden huts are now in ruins with only brick fireplaces and chimneys remaining.

  Entrance to Auschwitz I -The wrought-iron sign over the entrance bears the words Arbeit Macht Frei – “Work sets you free”.

  Auschwitz I – The brick-built buildings were the former cavalry barracks of the Polish Army.

  Courtyard between blocks 10 and 11 at Auschwitz I – Block 11 was called “the Block of Death” by prisoners. Executions took place between Block 10 and Block 11 and posts in the yard were used to string up prisoners by their wrists.

Auschwitz Birkenau is now a museum run by the Polish Culture Ministry, and a Unesco world heritage site.

Country powerhouse Toby Keith has no patience with drunk Americans.

Never has, never will…as this clip from a few years back will attest to. “I apologize,” Keith told the crowd after returning to the stage to finish his 1993 hit “A Little Less Talk and A Lot More Action.”

“He came right down in from and took a beer and threw it in the front of the stage and then threw me the bird and went out cursing me the whole way.”

Yet, Keith is seeing much success with his latest hit single “Drunk Americans” and will most certainly play the song at the upcoming 24th Annual Country Jam music festival on June 18-21 at Jam Ranch outside Grand Junction, Colorado. Keith is the fourth headliner to be announced for the festival, joining fellow country music superstars Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and The Band Perry.

Like clockwork, every winter I get a serious bout of home-sickness. It’s usually triggered by a call or email from someone back home telling me about taking a drive with the top down, watching football on ordinary broadcast TV, going out for some Vietnamese sandwiches, or one of the other things I miss about life in Los Angeles.

“But,” I remind myself, “Japan has lots of cool things too! Where else can you go to the museum and see massive collections of samurai armor, huh?”

Oh, right now you can do that at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art? Touché, L.A.

Many of Bloomington’s residents got their communist indoctrination while attending Indiana University or from their family that attended Indiana University.

Your tax dollars are paying for this: “Chick-fil-A has been booted off another campus because a small group of students with voting power disagreed with some of the business’ Biblical beliefs.”

If this were a private college that got absolutely no tax money, I would not object. But colleges are government institutions funded by tax dollars. Chick-fil-A is a business that employs thousands of people, pays its taxes, and has not done anything illegal.

Colleges pride themselves in being institutions which value contrary opinion. This is a huge lie. Universities have been co-opted by leftist ideologues who only support a single position.

All contrary opinions are relegated to the trash…

Shots fired, as they say.

Now NRA News radio host Cam Edwards is hitting back, and his response is far classier than Gumbel could ever hope to be.

“I have a sneaking suspicion Bryant Gumbel hasn’t spent much time around NRA members. I could introduce him to mothers and fathers, veterans and active duty members of the military, law enforcement officers, doctors, and paramedics I know who are proud members of the NRA,” Edwards said.

“The NRA members I know value human life enough to want to protect themselves and their families from those who would do them harm,” he said. “They’re not pigs. They’re good people.”

NEW YORK CITY, NY — Lauren Fern Watt and her English Mastiff, Gizelle, had been through a lot over the years –college, boyfriends and even a big move from Tennessee to New York. So, when her beloved, 160-lb “roommate” was diagnosed with bone cancer, she was devastated.

According to Watt’s blog on lifewithdogs.tv, the vet told her Gizelle only had a few months to live.

“My sobbing seemed unstoppable, but Gizelle was sensitive and didn’t like to see me cry,” Watt wrote. “I had to be strong.”

So she chose not to wallow, and she set out to make a bucket list for her longtime companion.

“It was my mission for us to indulge and explore life’s joys,” she wrote. “We’d escape the city and search for waterfalls, cook lobster and nap in the grass. We’d jump in the ocean without towels, just to enjoy the sun drying us…

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – The St. Louis County Police Department released nearly 200 images taken from surveillance video on the night looters ransacked a Dellwood business last November.

The looting occurred on November 24, in the hours following the announcement that a grand jury would not indict a Ferguson police officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

The suspects smashed their way into the Dellwood Market on Chambers Road and stole several items before fleeing.

World’s First 3D-Printed Apartment Building Constructed In China

 

 

 

” While architectural firms compete with their designs for 3D-printed dwellings, one company in China has quietly been setting about getting the job done. In March of last year, company WinSun claimed to have printed 10 houses in 24 hours, using a proprietary 3D printer that uses a mixture of ground construction and industrial waste, such as glass and tailings, around a base of quick-drying cement mixed with a special hardening agent.

  Now, WinSun has further demonstrated the efficacy of its technology — with a five-story apartment building and a 1,100 square metre (11,840 square foot) villa, complete with decorative elements inside and out, on display at Suzhou Industrial Park.

  The 3D printer array, developed by Ma Yihe, who has been inventing 3D printers for over a decade, stands 6.6 metres high, 10 metres wide and 40 metres long (20 by 33 by 132 feet). This fabricates the parts in large pieces at WinSun’s facility. The structures are then assembled on-site, complete with steel reinforcements and insulation in order to comply with official building standards.”

Countdown Timer Hints At Pirate Bay Return

 

 

Pirate Bay countdown

 

 

 

” The sunken Pirate Bay is undergoing salvage operations and could return to the waters of the internet late next week, if a new countdown timer on the original site is to be believed.

  The timer, which is counting down to zero, stands at just over 10 days and 11 hours – but does not state what will happen at the end of the period.

  At the bottom of the page a familiar Pirate Bay battleship logo sails towards a cartoon of an island harbour named “welcome home”. That could indicate a return to the internet for the self-proclaimed “galaxy’s most resilient BitTorrent site”. “

An 86-year-old widow has been living on a luxury cruise ship almost seven years, a decision she made after her husband died.

Lee Wachtstetter, aka Mama Lee, has lived aboard the 11-year-old Crystal Serenity longer than most of its 650-plus crew members.
Wachtstetter sold her five-bedroom, 10-acre Fort Lauderdale home and made the move permanent.

She and her husband went on 89 cruises during their 50-year marriage. He died in 1997 and since then she has just about tripled that number and has gone on 15 world cruises.

Asked how many countries she has visited, Wachtstetter said she stopped counting after 100.

Wachtstetter says she leads a “stress-free, fairy-tale life” that will cost her $164,000 this year.

“That’ll cover costs of her single-occupancy seventh deck stateroom, regular and specialty restaurant meals with available lunch and dinner beverages, gratuities, nightly ballroom dancing with dance hosts and Broadway-caliber entertainment — as well…

With the aggressive militarization of America’s police forces, innocent bystanders and family members often enter the crosshairs. For decades, federal programs have devised incentives for state and local police to utilize unnecessarily hostile weapons and battlefield tactics against civilians. Operating with a glaring lack of transparency and almost no public oversight, militarized police forces rarely find themselves accountable for their actions.

In a recent ACLU report titled War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policingthe Senior Counsel with the ACLU’s Center for Justice, Kara Dansky wrote, “The ACLU found through the course of this investigation that the excessive militarism in policing, particularly through the use of paramilitary policing teams, escalates the risk of violence, threatens individual liberties, and unfairly impacts people of color.”

Drones are definitely becoming a common thing. Innumerable YouTube videos have come out of featuring the average Joe’s airborne footage. South Park even released an episode centered around drones. Let’s face facts though, the coolest thing about drones is that they’re new. That’ll wear off really fast.

Drones are typically slow and not very agile, but then there’s Quadmovr.

This little homemade drone has the four copters on the corner like a normal drone, but it’s French designer has fashioned it so that it has become the worlds first civilian stunt drone. Not only is it incredibly fast, it can literally speed straight down and suddenly cut in any direction in a flash. This drone is so quick that I imagine Peregrin falcons actually having trouble catching it, and they’re ridiculously fast.

See for yourself. Hopefully the maker of this will find a way to mass produce these beauties.

Scientists know all about the sophisticated calendars and writing system of the Maya, as well as their ritual sacrifices. But as for exactly what caused the the ancient civilization to collapse around 900 A.D., that’s long been a bit of a mystery.

Now a team of researchers from Rice University and Louisiana State University think they may be one step closer to cracking the mystery, thanks in part to evidence from the “Great Blue Hole.” The massive sinkhole located in the Caribbean Sea off the coast of Belize was made popular by pioneering conservationist Jacques Cousteau, who visited it in 1971 and declared it one of the world’s best scuba diving sites.

The United States has been at war with radical Islamist terrorism for at least 35 years, starting with the November 1979 Iranian seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and taking of 52 American hostages. President Jimmy Carter , in his State of the Union address two months later, declared the American captives “innocent victims of terrorism.”

For the next two decades, radical Islamist terrorism grew more powerful and more sophisticated. On Sept. 11, 2001, a remarkably sophisticated effort by Islamist terrorists killed nearly 3,000 Americans in New York City, Washington, D.C., and western Pennsylvania.

Homegrown terrorism may be even closer than we feared.

A new report indicates that the FBI is aware of 22 Islamic “communes” inside the United States. These are allegedly run by a Pakistani group known as Jamaat al-Fuqra, through a more friendly sounding organization called “Muslims of the Americas” (MOA).

The locations are described by federal law enforcement as “communal living sites.” However, documents show that these sites provide paramilitary training and indoctrination to Islamic recruits — and they may be preparing for jihad.

“The documented propensity for violence by this organization supports the belief the leadership of the MOA extols members to pursue a policy of jihad or holy war against individuals or groups it considers enemies of Islam, which includes the U.S. Government,” stated a document that the Clarion Project said it obtained from the FBI.
