Tornado in the USA

More than 270 dead, swept away rows of houses overturned, cars: A series of deadly tornadoes swept across the southern United States, whole areas are in ruins. Here, the storm season, there has only just begun.

Trail of destruction: the southern United States has once again been rocked by deadly tornadoes. The heavy storms from Texas to Tennessee covered by houses, overturned cars and bend to let power poles like matchsticks.

A tornado (Spanish tornar "repent, turn, turn, participle tornado; tornear" spinning lathe, "), also Großtrombe, wind-or water-spout in the U.S. called colloquially Twister is a small-scale vortices in Earth's atmosphere, one nearly vertical rotational axis and in the context of convective clouds (cumulus and cumulonimbus) is what makes the difference to whirlwinds (dust devils). The vortex extends here continuously from the floor to the clouds. This definition of Alfred Wegener (1917) and is back in this form recognized today or in general.

The terms wind and water pants (English: Waterspout) described in the German-speaking one Großtrombe (Tornado in the broader sense) over land or major water bodies (sea, large inland lakes). Tornado is a synonym for a tornado in thethe narrower sense,that is over land .

The term "whirlwind"- in the older literature is well defined yet (Wegener) - In the recent past, increasingly indiscriminate use of various phenomena associated with sudden high winds (for example, downburst) or based on false whirlwind. Moreover, the impression of a difference between "large" Tornadoes in North America and "small" wind pants in Europe, was awakened. One difference between tornadoes and tornadoes, however, neither in terms of their physical nature or terms of their strength.

Building the future?

From a botanical perspective Bamboo is a giant grass. It is harder than oak in lignified state. But through his simultaneous flexibility and elasticity bamboo is now in this country among architects, designers and furniture makers as a highly exciting material. The rapidly growing plant but also as a beacon of hope for many who are interested in protecting the environment.

In just five years time, a bamboo root growth has already reached a considerable strength. Some kinds do up to 50 centimeters a day in the air. Therefore, the super grass is considered the fastest-renewable resource on earth. From an ecological bamboo is so environmentally friendly alternative to tropical timber.
Bamboo is on all continents except Europe and Antarctica home. In Colombia, Thailand and Indonesia, for example, were built over centuries, houses and even entire cities made ​​of bamboo. Bridge structures made ​​of bamboo with a wingspan of 50 meters in length are not uncommon in South America. Within the last five years, the demand for bamboo products in Germany has risen sharply.
Especially in the course of the lifestyle boom and by the growing influence of Asian cultures, the popularity of the material in this country has increased enormously. So it is hardly surprising that bamboo today in almost all areas of life finds.
Cartier, for example, weaves a bamboo in gold and the German fashion designer Willy Bogner manufactures skis from the robust material. Even the cosmetics industry praises bamboo in the highest terms. These are the sugars and silica in the bamboo leaves, which protects our skin from wrinkles. Any friend of Asian cuisine also know that bamboo is also on the plate.
For the construction industry and the furniture industry, it is the lignin, the bamboo as a material so attractive. Lignin is responsible for the strength and robustness: The hardness of bamboo, measured in Brinell (HB), is higher by about 25 percent than in beech. This can be made ​​extremely light construction materials or furniture with very slender cross-section.

The killing of Osama bin Laden

President Barack Obama announced on Sunday, the U.S. special forces had Osama bin Laden, the longtime leader of the al-Qaeda network, killed in an attack on a residential complex in Abbottabad in Pakistan.

Obama appeared at 23:30 Eastern time clock before the cameras - one hour after the main television stations had an important message from the President announced on national security.

The statements by the President were significant unanswered questions and raised many new questions.

First Obama said he had "Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA briefly instructed to taking office, the killing or capture of bin making Laden a top priority in our war against al-Qaida, and at the same time so continue to disrupt its network to destroy and conquer. "

Obama assumed in other words, without providing an explanation for that in the period from 2001 am until his inauguration in January 2009, the capture or killing Laden is not the highest priority in the "war on terror".

Furthermore, the place where bin Laden was killed, very important. Obama said that U.S. intelligence had "bin Laden's hideout located in a residential complex deep inside Pakistan." Obama identified the place then more accurate than Abbotabad. He did not mention that this city about forty miles away from Rawalpindi, the heart of the Pakistani military establishment and a few miles from Islamabad, the capital of the country. It is as if a fugitive hiding in a nearby police station.

Obama also described not the kind of "complex". But the press now reports that the "most wanted man in the world" in a comfortable mansion resided. In addition, the city of Abbotabad is on the strategically important route N35, the Karakom highway that connects Pakistan with China.

Obama played further cryptic important that "our cooperation with Pakistan in the counter-terrorism helped us bin Laden and the residential complex where he lived to see."

The obvious conclusion is - as many had suspected - that bin Laden at least until recently, the protection of powerful forces within the government, the military and the intelligence agencies of Pakistan enjoyed.

Although Obama the country to calling "the countless intelligence agents and anti-terrorism experts to thank who have worked tirelessly for this outcome," was the most important factor in bin Laden's murder is clearly a change in the attitude of his years of protector in the Pakistani state apparatus. For reasons that will eventually come out once decided, the Pakistani regime'm falling, leave loading.

These unusual facts about the whereabouts of bin Laden have Obama's claim that the U.S., "leading the war against al-Qaida, to protect our citizens, our friends and our allies, appear as a bad joke. These grounds are absolutely untrue.

While the alleged terrorist mastermind was protected by the Pakistani government, a very important ally in the "war on terror," the U.S. has stationed over the past ten years, a massive force in Afghanistan. This force has been tripled since Obama took office.

None of Obama's comments in any way suggesting that bin Laden's assassination lead to a significant change in U.S. foreign policy - or even an end to the relentless expansion of military interventions.

The three wars in which the U.S. is currently involved - in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya - have nothing to do with the fight against al-Qaida or the hunt for bin Laden to do. Both the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the U.S. invaded in 2003, as were also the regime Muammar Gaddafi in Libya, which is now being bombed by U.S. and NATO forces, al-Qaeda enemy. In Afghanistan, the forces of al-Qaida are politically and militarily insignificant.

Both Obama's speech and the press comments were a clear attempt to obtain public support for wars that have become extremely unpopular. Obama asked Americans "to the sense of thinking back on 11 September prevailed. I know that, we got lost at times. "Commentators in the media repeatedly expressed her hope that killing bin Laden establish the morale of soldiers fighting in Afghanistan again, and justify the loss of thousands of human lives.

Bin Laden's name is indelibly associated with a monstrous crime - the murder of nearly 3,000 people on 11 September 2001. Most of them died in the collapse of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York. Others died in bloody terrorist attacks in the world. But bin Laden was not the real reason for the explosion of American militarism, of the 11 September followed. He was just the pretext.

One conclusion can be drawn with certainty: The killing bin Laden is not the "war on terror" for which he served as a pretext, nor the imperialist wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya quit. American military forces are only one reason in these countries: To secure strategic positions and oil and gas fields, which are of vital interest to American imperialism.

The problems of today's youth it is the one the little things on a pedestal is, although theyare not important in life.

Social contacts can be the most important thing in life the fact you can achieve a loteven if you are not the best in a way it is still the chance for a better position in a socialenvironment. Everything is ruled by money but if the whole system collapses dan one isfrom total disaster.

Thinking is absent the people hard, but if you look at time and rest can be daneverything comes by itself.

How do I deal with my friends around ... There are dominant, inquisitive, quiet, and enterprising people. To keep good contact with them to have to learn to deal with themand they should be divided first into one of the classes.

Japan's economy

The Japanese economy got back to work sooner than later, the index quickly snapped back, and the Nikkei had recouped its losses by January 1996. Of course, this recovery could take longer given the enormity of the devastation, but honestly, the best time to sell out of Japan was on Thursday, before the quake. Sell now and you are locking in short-term losses. Instead, try to look at this as dispassionately as some smart international money managers. Charles de Vaulx, manager of the $1.8 billion IVA International Fund, which invests in Japan, told Bloomberg Businessweek “We do not expect to make any significant changes to our portfolio as a result of this tragedy.” And Oakmark’s David Herro, Morningstar’s 2006 International Fund Manager of the Year added:
“Our view on Japan is still the same. When you look at the valuation of Japanese companies, if you look at what’s happening with Japanese managements in terms of improving operating efficiency, we’re still excited about the Japanese equity market. If this causes market values to go substantially lower, we’ll use this as an opportunity to buy quality at lower price…. Very little of this will ultimately impact the long-term price of the companies we own.”
