US dollar dying as tensions over Ukraine heat up: Analyst

The US dollar is losing its dominance on global trade amid spiraling tensions between Washington and Moscow over Ukraine, says an analyst.

“Washington’s decision to go for the military coup in Ukraine [has]…isolated the power of US hegemony and opened the door for a genuine multipolar world where peaceful cooperation replaced military threats and sole superpower domination,” Engdahl stated.

Spectacular fireball from space explodes over Russian city

A suspected meteorite explosion has been recorded by citizens of the northern Russian city of Murmansk.

Multiple drivers with dashcams out on the streets of the 300,000-people city at 2.10am on Saturday noticed a bright blue trail speed across the night sky, then explode while still in the air.

Most observers identified the object as a meteorite, though officials have neither confirmed it nor said where the fragments are likely to have landed. Others speculated that the object may have been space debris, re-entering the atmosphere.

Syria on track to meet April deadline for chemical weapons disposal, OPCW says

Syria has destroyed a majority of its chemical weapons material, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said Saturday.

"The Syrian Arab Republic has removed or destroyed in-country approximately 80 percent of its chemical weapons material," according to the OPCW Executive Council.

The OPCW also said Saturday that the regime of embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is now on track to complete the disposal of the country's chemical weapons in the next few days. If that happens, Syria would meet the deadline set by the OPCW for the destruction of the weapons before the end of April.

Google: the unelected superpower

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then.

But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman, Eric Schmidt, is a White House advisor. In Britain, its executives meet with ministers more than almost any other corporation.

Sssh, it's Happy Eastern Star, oops or is it ?ostre? Don’t forget your Osterhase Eggs!!

The Easter Bunny, ah, is not ‘bunny’ or 'Bunnywabbit' at all, but is actually an Hare.

The Hare was the sacred animal of Eostre [or Oestra or Ostera], the ancient Teutonic Goddess of the Spring Moon. At the time of the vernal equinox [March or April] the hares are famed for going ‘mad as a March Hare', and it was at this time of the year that out of character for its species, one of Eostre’s hares laid an egg.

Not just any old egg, for this was the Egg of a New Life - the Eostre Egg.
