The Barcelona Agreement
Someone posted this video link on the DT website today.  The video has been produced by the EU and is intended for broadcast to celebrate the Barcelona Agreement. Not many people have probably heard of this agreement but it was an agreement struck by the EU and all of the African continent when the EU decided we needed a whole lot of Africans to shore up Europe's declining birth rate.
Then of course there was the sudden influx Africans to Europe thanks to people smugglers resulted in the idea being shelved, or should we say quietly put it on hold until we'd all forgotten about it.
This is it NB the unified map at the end.

Thai cave rescue underway

The aunt of the coach trapped in the cave with the Thai soccer team told CNN her nephew loves the kids on the team, and the mothers trust him to take care of their children.

"Coach Ek, he loves those kids very much. Then kids prefer to go out with him -- wherever their coach invites to go," Thamma Kantawong said. "Children's mothers trust him that he can take care of their child pretty well, because he loves kids very much."

She added, "He is very good person, loves kids, takes care of kids, he is very diligent, volunteer himself to help others. The language he speaks is very polite."

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!

You know, I realize that 9-11 did change the US for the better; we no longer view ourselves as immune from the ugliness of the world and we have a deeper and more sincere appreciation of how good we have it in this country. After Afghanistan and Iraq, how the women there suffer, it makes me all the MORE appreciative that I have the ability to wear a miniskirt and clothes without the possibility of being sprayed with spray-paint or flogged or stoned.

^My pleasure.  I love eagles.  We have a family of them that live nearby during their nesting season.  I just thought this was so amazing, almost like the eagle knew.
