With recent snow fall all over the world, which may be a bit unusual for autumn, I wonder how long will it take someone to put together a number of snow pictures and write something to akin of “Global waming? FAIL!”.

I guess everybody has heard by now that the American prezzdent, Obama has been chosen as the best candidate to be awarded the Nobel peace prize. While most of the world is raising eye brows and sayn’ “Say whaaaat?”, cheers and congratulations can not stop from the United States and… Israel. Fortunately, Fox “News” has compiled a list of reactions from major news papers throughout the world. I think the list could be better (one news paper in CHINA(?!) and nothing from Russia?) but here it is.
I think this just shows what many have been saying for years. The Nobel peace price is a bunch of baloney. I think people winning the prize in Chemistry (structure of the ribosome), Medicine (how chromosomes protect their ends) and Physics (optic fibers and digital imaging) are all well deserved. Also notice that the prizes for the latter three categories was awarded for achievements several decades old (which is the proper way of checking the “greatness” of it) while the peace prize was (and usually is) given for recent achievements (which is wrong). Obama was nominated just recently which is why many see it as an “investment for the future”, perhaps to help drive the big world government down our throats one last time.

Here is a link to a GREAT post about the state of world fisheries and the nonsense behind government subsidy revenues that are sustaining unreasonably high fleet numbers. For most readers, I highly recommend reading at least the first page, as it is informative enough, but I will encourage everyone to read the whole three page ordeal. Author of the post is Daniel Pauley, of whom a rather lengthy but interesting video can be seen in the “embedment” below. The subject is essentially the same. The best point he makes, in my opinion, is the vertical pressure that needs to be exerted upon government entities to achieve change (in sustainable fisheries), just like in smoking laws.
