The rebels who started the civil war in Sierra Leone 15 years ago wanted only one thing: to reclaim the richness of the country from foreign corporations in order to end the exploitation of its people. In response, the international community decided to wage a war on this country, with bombs, executions, torture, rigged elections and manipulation of the international media. This created one of the worst humanitarian disasters of the 20th century.

It began with a weapon created by the scientists who threatened to destroy the world. But then, a group of men who were convinced that control of the new danger began to gain influence in America. They manipulate the terror.They use the methods of science. Pandora’s Box was a six-part 1992 BBC documentary television series written and produced by Adam Curtis, which examines the consequences of political and technocratic rationalism.After Curtis The Century of I had a similar theme. The title sequence made extensive use of short film clips designed to dream, and other similar file images.Episode 1: Plot of the Engineer. The revolutionaries who overthrew the Tsar in 1917 thought science held the key to their new world. In fact, it ended up creating a bewildering world for millions of Soviet citizens. In this research, gay, industrial planner tells how she decided the people wanted platform shoes, only to find they had gone out of fashion at the time the factory for manufacturing was built.Episode 2: the edge of eternity. Focusing on the men of the Cold War in which Dr. Strangelove is based. These were people who believed the world could be controlled by scientific manipulation of fear – mathematical geniuses employed by the Rand Corporation of America. In the end, their visions were the stuff of science fiction fantasy.Episode 3: The league of men. Thirty years ago, a group of economists managed to convince British politicians that they had foolproof technical means to make Britain great again. Pandora’s Box tells the saga of how their experiments have led the country deeper into economic decline, and asks – is their game finally up?Episode 4: Goodbye Mrs. Ant. A modern fable about science and society, focuses on our attitude towards nature. Should we let scientists are the main drivers of social or political change when, for instance, DDT made post-war heroes of American scientists only to be put on trial by other scientists in 1968? What kind of struggle that happens between rival camps before one scientific truth emerges, and when it does emerge, how true is it?Episode 5: Black Power. A look at how former Ghanaian leader Kwame Nkrumah set Africa ablaze with his vision of a new industrial and scientific era. At the heart of his dream was to be the great Volta dam, generating enough power to transform West Africa in advanced utopia. But as his grand experiment took shape, bringing with it dangerous forces Nkrumah could not control, and slowly watched his metropolis of science sink into corruption and debt.Episode 6: A is for Atom. An overview of the history of nuclear energy. In the 1950 scientists and politicians thought they could create a different world, with an unlimited source of nuclear energy. But things began to go wrong. Scientists in the U.S. and the Soviet Union were duped into building dozens of potentially dangerous plants.

Promises

Promises presents a powerful portrait of seven Palestinian and Israeli children living in and around Jerusalem. As a filmmaker BZ Goldberg, who was raised in Israel, the notes do not live more than 20 minutes of each other, but each of them grow in very different worlds. Children are Mahmoud, Shlomo, Sanabel, Faraj, Moishe, and twins Yarko and Daniel.With the exception of the latter, all are religious (the twins are the grandchildren of a Holocaust survivor). Most have strong political convictions and have seen their share of tragedy – Faraj friend was killed in front of him, but when the film makes clear, are also children.They like to watch TV, burping contests, and compete in sports (Faraj is a broker, Daniel Yarko and volleyball). The promises are not intended to explain, but let the children speak for themselves. The results are funny, sad, and ultimately quite profound.If you believe in your heart that, despite all obstacles, peace is possible between Israelis and Palestinians, this film will fill you with hope and wonder. That does not mean that it is pink – the children depicted in the film often present anger and intolerance, but the mere act of recognition among the children of these two warring groups is enough to inspire confidence in its future.This film is a precious document of an experiment beautiful, courageous and weak by the filmmakers. We all have the courage to try to guide the next generation in a more peaceful, more understanding.

Besides, there are former employees who are staking their reputation and revealing to the world the different realities associated with the secret programs that are carried out at the base.From what is known from such sources there are supposedly a few underground facilities located underneath the base.

To 67/100, 000. According to this researcher, there is a direct relationship between the rate of murders and other violent crime rates, theft, rape, etc. In Jamaica, historically, most of the killings were crimes of passion.In 1963, 64% of murder cases, victims were known to the offender, and domestic violence accounted for 28% of homicides, while in 1993, but fell to 16%. This does not mean that cases of domestic violence are declining, it means that the homicide rate – especially since the increase in the number of illegal weapons on the island – is increasing.Ross discovers the extent to which the Nazis, or National Socialist groups are gaining power in Russia would seem that maybe the police turn a blind eye to racism, at worst actively approve it.

The Horten H.IX, RLM designation Ho 229 (often called Gotha Go 229 due to the identity of the chosen manufacturer of the aircraft) was a German prototype fighter/bomber designed by Reimar and Walter Horten and built by Gothaer Waggonfabrik late in World War II. It was the first pure flying wing powered by jet engines.[1]It was given the personal approval of German Luftwaffen Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, and was the only aircraft to come close to meeting his "3×1000" performance requirements, namely to carry 1,000 kilograms (2,200 lb) of bombs a distance of 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) with a speed of 1,000 kilometres per hour (620 mph). Its ceiling was 15,000 metres (49,000 ft).[2]Since the appearance of the B-2 Spirit flying wing stealth bomber in the 1990s, its similarities in role and shape to the Ho 229 has led many to retrospectively describe the Ho 229 as "the first stealth bomber".[3] A static reproduction of the only surviving Ho 229 prototype, the Ho 229 V3, in American hands since the end of World War II was later tested by the US military who found the basic shape and paint composition of the mock copy would provide for 20% reduction in detection range against the Chain Home radar of the 1940s, but no significant stealth benefit against most other contemporary radar systems.[3]
