The headline is a bit misleading since according to the article it was shot down by ground to air missiles. That's not the same as a crash in my mind, though just as tragic for the families of those on board. Think it's time to change flight plans away from the Russian Ukraine border for a while.

Re: The Bad News Thread

Just saw this. Not what I want to see before I fly to Ireland, but the fact that it was a missile attack is better than it being a crash.
Probably more tragic for the families that it was shot down. Unreal.

Re: The Bad News Thread

I thought we had it bad with internet in America. Turns out Turkey is much worse.

New Turkish Internet law to deepen censorship and increase surveillance: HRW - RIGHTS

Social media and opposition to blame for protests, says Turkish PM | World news | The Guardian
Quote:
"We think that the main opposition party, which is making resistance calls on every street, is provoking these protests," Erdogan said on Turkish television, as an estimated 10,000 demonstrators streamed into the area waving flags and calling on the government to resign.

"There is now a menace which is called Twitter," Erdogan said. "The best examples of lies can be found there. To me, social media is the worst menace to society."
Guy makes Putin practically look like the Dalai Lama (who lives in Atlanta btw).

The biggest surprise of this is I did a report back in college on the overall business and marketing climate in Turkey where I actually got a chance to speak about the country with actual Turks. What I learned at the time was that it was unfair to compare Turkey to the rest of the Middle East in terms of rights. However it seems like the leaders are dragging the country further and further away from the EU and more towards the rest of the Middle East.

Unreal. This is fantastic bad news .... Wait - nevermind.
I once had dinner with the hare krishnas in Atlanta.
Edit: that is seriously scary shit. This world is effed up.

Re: The Bad News Thread

bad news for me - my 15 year old car now involuntarily honks its horn on sharp turns (the middle cover of my steering wheel is loose). its nice, 7:43 am, trying to navigate through city traffic and out of nowhere - hooooonk-honk-hoonk-hoooonk ... everyone looks around and i just put both hands up so they know im not intentionally honking my horn.

life is precious.

bad news for PA law enforcement - i find this situation to be terrifying and a real life rambo I. brings back all the DC sniper memories but this time it takes place in the thick deep woods with a marksman survivalist.

Re: The Bad News Thread

A reason millions of bees are dying - The Washington Post

I had heard of Colony Collapse Disorder before but right now its freaking me out because I'm not sure if I'm witnessing it first hand. The other day outside a super market there was a swarm of bees next to my car. Pretty much all of them seemed like they were dying as there were at least 20 dead bees in the middle of the swarm.

Then today when I get back to my place there's what appears to be a dead queen right next to where I park my car (seriously maybe its my car). And I'm pretty sure its a queen because it looked a lot like the queen in this picture.

For those who might think this is a good thing keep in mind bees play a vital part in the eco-system:
Quote:
Globally there are more honey bees than other types of bee and pollinating insects, so it is the world's most important pollinator of food crops. It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees, but also by other insects, birds and bats
Basically there are farmers in Asia that are having to pollinate plants manually. A process which is extremely time consuming and ineffective especially compared to the rate bees are able to complete the same task. Of course when you're out of options, well beggars can't be choosers.

Regardless its still way to warm down here for the Bee's to start dying off. Personally I'm not the biggest environmentalist but this issue definitely has my attention.

In other bad news:
North Korea sentences American Matthew Miller to 6 years at hard labor - The Washington Post

Just a terrible story.

Funny thing is next to Greece, the Ottoman empire particularly around Istanbul used to be one of the more forward thinking and open civilizations in the ancient world. Sad to see it reduced to this.

I would agree. The sugar between the coke n rum is a killer.
