Hi scarface!
You've posted so many documentaries that it's hard to keep up.

Do you have any select few ones(non depressing ones?) that are especially worth watching?
Same goes for movies; but I'd like some romantic ones if you got. I'm a sucker for that stuff.

Planning on saving a few and keeping on my phone for moments where I am not connected to this facinating fiber-connection.

I also apologize, I am a bit too lazy to search through the entire topic  ::)

Hope all is good with all of you!

Tonight, I’m holding a conference to talk about the situation in Gaza.

Is the liberation of Palestine coming close? Is there a new war raging between Israel and Gaza? It’s hard to say, but once again, there is a tense situation between the Gaza strip and Israel.


Lately, Israel bombed "military targets throughout the Gaza Strip"
Four Palestinians and one Israeli soldier were killed, according to the Gazan Health Ministry and the Israeli army. The Hebrew State has announced that it has responded to shootings targeting its troops.

Two of the Palestinians were killed by Israeli gunfire near Khan Younis, in the south of the territory. The shooting was aimed at a Hamas observation post, the Islamist movement in power in the Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian security sources.
The third victim was killed by Israeli forces in Rafah, also in the southern Gaza Strip, and a fourth Palestinian was killed by Israeli soldiers near the border area east of Gaza City. The military wing of Hamas announced that three of the Palestinians killed on Friday were among their "fighters".
An Israeli soldier was killed by Palestinian gunfire, also announced in the early evening on Friday, the army in a statement. "During one incident, a group of terrorists fired at Israeli soldiers. One of them was seriously injured and later succumbed to his wounds, "the army said, adding that it had fought back with a series of air raids against the Palestinian enclave. This is the first Israeli killed since the beginning of a protest movement in Gaza against the Israeli blockade.

"

Violent riots" according to the Israeli army
Israeli planes and tanks have bombed "military targets throughout the Gaza Strip," the Israeli army said earlier today. This operation was launched in response to gunfire targeting Israeli troops, according to the military. According to the army, the shooting against Israeli soldiers took place during "violent riots along the security fence", which marks the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip.

"If Hamas continues its rocket fire, Israel will react much more harshly than [Hamas leaders] think," Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned Friday after firing three rockets the Gaza Strip, two of which were intercepted.

Israel hardens its response to incendiary kites
Since March 30, Palestinians have regularly demonstrated in the border area to denounce the Israeli blockade imposed on Gaza and demand the return of Palestinian refugees who fled or fled their lands in 1948, when the State of Israel was created.

More than 100 Palestinians were killed by the Israeli army during the clashes that erupted during some of these gatherings. No Israeli was killed.

For just over a week, Israel has been hardening its response to killers and incendiary balloons launched from Gaza, which have set more than 2,600 hectares on Israeli territory, according to the Jewish state. In recent days, the Israeli army has opened fire at groups launching such devices.

Israeli Defense Minister Lieberman has increased threats of a large-scale operation in the Gaza Strip if Hamas does not halt the launch of incendiary devices. Israeli television broadcast this week footage of army maneuvers training for a land incursion into the Gaza Strip.

Israel and Hamas have clashed in three wars since 2008 that devastated the enclave, which is now experiencing a severe humanitarian crisis. For more than a decade, the Gaza Strip, wedged between Israel, Egypt and the Mediterranean, has been subjected to a strict Israeli land, sea and air blockade. The strengthening of the blockade is intensifying pressure on Hamas in a territory where about 80 percent of the two million people depend on aid, according to the World Bank.



And here is an exceptional documentary to understand the perspectives of some of the 400,000 Jews who live in the occupied territory (West Bank) in defiance of international law—and to hear from the Palestinians who oppose them.
Why don't they go to another - welcoming - state, close to Isreal, like Syria, Jordan or even Turkey, instead of living in a country that has more fences than a zoo? Maybe there are no rational explanations.

A few days ago, I was hinting at Facebook in one of my conferences. And I was selling that the US stock market was expensive. And It still is.
I hope shadow.97 and Maher sold their FB and twitter stocks before the rout.
And guess what? The following day, on 26 June, Fb collapsed by 20% on earnings, followed a day later by Twitter.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjGWJoa6Ff4
In my opinion, the decline is not over. Maybe it’s only the beginning.

Choosing Turkmenistan as your next destination is probably an excellent choice.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lp3FAZSeW-M
Known for its autocratic government and large gas reserves, Turkmenistan also has a reputation as an island of stability in restive Central Asia.

And with grandiose gold-leafed statues of the president in the streets of Ashgabat, Turkmenistan is certainly amongst the richest countries in the world. Don’t even think about putting Qatar and Turkmenistan in the same league. In May 2015, the new gold equestrian statue dedicated to current Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov,  unleashed a wave of articles castigating the dictator who is building statues in his effigy. Still, the situation is more complicated than a "simple" cult of personality. Between intrigue and flattery among some of the most secretive elites in the world, it is more of an attempt to restore unity within a regime with a declining economy.
Despite its gas wealth, much of Turkmenistan's population is still impoverished. After independence from the Soviet Union in 1991 the country entered a period of isolation that has only recently begun to end.
Turkmenistan produces roughly 70 billion cubic metres of natural gas each year and about two-thirds of its exports go to Russia's Gazprom gas monopoly.

So rich, but so poor: Why Iraq's protests began in oil-rich south a few days ago.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ott0SfrB2bg


The documentary is not really explanatory. Actually, nowadays, the canals of Basra, in Irak, are littered with rubbish. In Turkey, where the Euphrates and Tigris rivers originate, the construction of a dozen dams has reduced the flow of Chatt el Arab by 75%. The turbines of the power stations are shut down and the city of oil survives almost without electricity and without drinking water. Half of its inhabitants are unemployed.
And it is in Basra, the true economic heart of Iraq, that the future of the country is played out. With its hydrocarbon production, ports and terminals, the town generates 90% of oil revenues in Baghdad. For a long time, foreign companies dictated their conditions, forgetting the Iraqi workers during the negotiations.

Is the city about to lose its best and brightest as it did during the 1997 handover? A growing dissatisfaction over the lack of political freedom and social mobility are key reasons why emigration figures have been climbing.




Note that tomorrow, there will be probably a new conference with some photos, and some new movies.

There is a flag, giving clues about the location of the town. It looks like the Palestinian flag.
But the town of Masdar is not in Palestine. It’s not in Egypt either. It’s in the United Arab Emirates, near Dubai.




The restaurant that promotes Harmfully Unhealthy Food
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqf_SIQ3JAk
The hamburger restaurant with a menu that boasts unhealthy foods. Fatty foods in large portions are bad for you. However in light of this, The Heart Attack Grill uses the potentially harmful nature of it's food a selling point. And it’s a huge success.

Vasudev and usman must be wondering if this restaurant is located in India or Pakistan. Fortunately for them, it’s not the case.
The restaurant's spokesman, 575-pound (261 kg) Blair River, died on March 1, 2011, aged 29, from complications of pneumonia. The Arizona location closed shortly thereafter, on May 31, 2011, with a Heart Attack Grill opening in Dallas, Texas earlier that month. The Dallas restaurant closed in October 2011 due to non-payment of rent.
The current Las Vegas location opened in October 2011. In February 2013, an official spokesman and daily patron, 52-year-old John Alleman, died of an apparent heart attack while waiting at a bus stop in front of the restaurant. In early 2017, the restaurant expanded into a new restaurant on Las Vegas Boulevard, which closed less than two months later. The first Las Vegas location remains a popular tourist attraction.
