About Us...

Exposing the lies and seeking truth doesn't = Hate. This is not a Kate Hate Site. A 'Kate Hate Site" wouldn't have "Shame on Kate AND Shame on Jon" in the reaction box.

Just a place where bloggers and commenters can share an open discussion on all things related to the Gosselins.

This blog was created to expose the spins and lies shared by the media and by several individuals who continue to spread filth and garbage for their own self-interests.

This blog will expose those who continue to spread lies as "truth" and those who base their beliefs and support for one individual based on those lies.

Brazil Governemnt to destroy 40,000 Kayapo tribe members lives

Kayapo Damned: Brazil government OKs hydro plant, condemns 40,000 lives

A desperate picture: Brazillian Kayapo tribes take to Western courts to protest the Belo Monte hydroelectric dam that will wipe out their land and homes. Image Source: cultofthedeadfish.blogspot.com


Brazilian president Dilma Roussef has given approval to build a hydroelectric plant – the third largest in the world - at Belo Monte on the Xingu River in Brazil‘s northern Amazonian region.

The region is currently home to huge local communities, totalling 40,000 people, the majority of whom will be flooded out when water levels eventually eradicate 400,000 hectares of ancient forest and towns.

Despite this, and despite significant protest from the tribal communities in Western courts – no mean feat, mind you – approval was passed without the slightest resounding outcry from the world.

It pisses me off that globally we care more about stopping Internet Copyright laws like SOPA and Protect-IP than the lives of 40,000 human beings‘ homes in the name of business profits.

The Amazon region should belong to the world, as the Internet does, and the world should get pissed off at things threatening it just as if your local government signed papers that meant they could build a highway through your house whenever they felt like.

What’s about to happen to the Kayapo community will be more devastating than the 2011 Queensland Floods.

Yet this time, it’s deliberate, and it’s OK.

Actual trend of wearing the watches on wrist came to existence after the World War 1, because at that time soldier found it so much difficult to carry a watch in their pockets as at the time of Warfield they have to run, jump and perform several other difficult tasks during which they misplace their watches. To overcome this problem they tied that watch on their wrist. Many people followed them by saying that if the real soldiers can wear why they can’t. In the very beginning all the watches were fully mechanical as technology developed to great extent scientists have replaced the mechanical formula with the quartz vibrations or electronic pulse. As the technology developed the watches came with several features like GPs navigation, alarm, timers and many more. The famous companies are Rolex, Timex, Casio, Seiko, Fossil etc. The watches are available in different price ranges ranging from a few hundred to crores.
