air strikes meanwhile the african union is calling on the member states to this regard the arrest warrant issued by the international criminal court against gadhafi but the e.u. says charges complicate efforts to find solutions to the libyan crisis. the syrian president a sacked a key official after friday's anti regime demonstrations which are believed to have been the biggest yet president bashar al assad has signed a decree removing the governor of the central city of hama from office tens of thousands took to the streets nationwide rejecting assad's promises of reform and demanding an end to his authoritarian rule activists say. the government crackdown which began in mid march has claimed almost fifteen hundred lives. and at least thirteen members of a family died when a roadside bomb struck their minibus in southern afghanistan the group including two children were thought to be afghan refugees returning from pakistan in the
volatile border area roadside bombs planted by taliban led militants are commonly used in the country and elsewhere in afghanistan a local council member was killed by two gunman who opened fire from a motorbike. police in a bathroom have fired tear gas at hundreds of anti-government protesters did well sink peace talks between the sunni led government and the shiite opposition according to reports the dialogue follows months of violent protests but claims over thirty lives the shia community in bahrain claims it's discriminated against by the sunni majority thousands participated in nation wide demonstrations demanding their political representation now leon panetta has been sworn in as the new u.s. defense secretary replacing robert gates what held the position for over four years well during his time as pentagon chief gates struggle to bring about victory in
iraq and afghanistan but artie's military contributor says the retard defense secretary actually helped nurture the taliban in the first place. for our generation of the cold war warriors on the bolshoi in the united states and in russian federation it is robert gates there growing secretary of defense who pushing allies it's called war and each week. was anything but controversial and he has garnered full respect all across the board. during his valedictory exit tour from of ghana all across europe and back to the united states robert gates displayed unbelievable specter of sincerity and candor providing he's honest and unvarnished assessment of the united states strategic overreach all across the globe and somehow i have
a hunch that in his upcoming memoirs robert gates will explain his one unfinished dream that is to finish the job keep initiated in his previous capacity as the cia chief when he opened up a pound or a box of extremism in pakistan and in afghanistan only to be called back to duty almost thirty years later to eradicate the eval which is so carefully rared and groomed in his previous capacity as the cia chief as social media gives everyone a chance to play their part of any story it's been a communications revolution and courage in a mass uprising in some countries and cost the controversy and others with a perceived a lot of censorship artie's a resident in new york at the sidewalks ask what people there think of the social networking see.
in today's social media driven world you can post whatever hate speech doctored photos or other nonsense you want with virtually no consequences how you feel about that defining our times this week let's talk about that i was talking a guy on facebook once and by mistake instead of writing his name in such a pill as my status. as i knew harmony things very quickly adding everybody to really see did you learn your lesson yeah yeah people just pretty thing on here young girls young kids you know home addresses and everything like. consider how. people see what you show them not what you actually are in my experience and if you put something on the internet people will watch and think that that's at your life you know when when people could be sitting at home doing nothing for a whole weekend they might just make things up just to make themselves more interesting a lot of people tend toward being snotty or rude and they've been taught through
television and other media that that's the new cool yet there's a shift in our culture going on for whatever that'll change as people start to understand that they end result of that is isolated you isolate yourself and you do that kind of stuff we need to be center of attention. as the world just become a giant high school yeah i would say yes we are all just a big giant oh a high school will hate it so why do we want to live it every day i think the question isn't and it's almost even in the more middle school that sort of mean girl kind of being and i think even adults get into the bullying which is kind of sad but do you think that as we grow as a society people will get smarter about what's a post or will it just kept worse and worse i think people always be people you're going to have people that are smart you can if people that are not and i think it will be fruit cakes they put things on me that is just unhelpful and home for
regardless of how you feel about the pitfalls of social media the bottom line is it's probably going to get a lot. at worst. it. rushes caucuses region is known for its outstanding male wrestlers but now the local women are hot on their heels pumping iron in the gym and testing the limits to the max of the art of arm wrestling some of these ladies have become a force to be reckoned with as a question of a finds out there determined to become international stars. there is little clue as to why there's quite a corner of russia and the north caucasus hide such a powerful secret because as hair there we find perhaps some of the strongest women in the country were there holding their arm wrestling talents will one day be shared with the world in the olympic arena. i mean i was silva began wrestling in nine hundred ninety four but now she's clearly
a super woman with town world and fourteen year old gold medals were born in a small village in the mountains she says that she has achieved everything she wished for and now it's time for a younger generation to fall in her winning footsteps i mean as big as concern though is that those poor doesn't get the recognition she feels it deserves sometimes we simply don't have money to go to the championships after training so hard young girls are losing the stimulus to continue when they hear that there is no chance for them to go unless they collect the money themselves one thing that might change that would be the sport was made part of their limpy games bringing in one tangent and financing competitive organizing maja's began in california in nineteen thirty two and soon gained real popularity arm wrestling as one of the most peaceful convert of sport that actually doesn't require any special equipment and people of all ages have a real chance of winning if i did something quite so there.
was a chance of winning right now i'm going to check it out myself. i would certainly it's an easy task standing hours of the gym training as she doesn't know if she'll have or have enough money to go to the championships but she never loses hope. maybe it is an incorrect comparison but sport is like a swamp for me once you get into it there is simply no turning back i tried to start but i can't live without it and they will continue hoping that one will be recognised by the public. it seems like ok jand women are following hard on the successful heels of their man who take many of the world's noddles in almost all types of wrestling and with girls has seemingly determined to break the stereotypes we could soon see more in more high hills and making their way into the wrestling
