Yes, These 20 Places Are Absolutely Beautiful. But They Each Holding A Shocking Truth…

You may want to put these places on your bucket list sooner rather than later, because we have a feeling they won’t be around for long. Each of these spectacular places on Earth are slowly disappearing, due to both climate and political changes. Sometimes, the success and popularity of a destination can lead to its ruination (or at least the dilution of the natural culture). Check out these wonderful 20 places … before it’s too late.

1.) Tuvalu: Tuvalu is a series of tiny islands in the South Pacific. It’s the fourth-smallest country on Earth, and also one of the lowest. It’s just a few inches above sea level and a rise in water levels could spell disaster.

2.) Boeng Yak Loum, Cambodia: This round crater lake in the jungle of northeastern Cambodia is considered sacred by locals. Visitors pay an entry fee of less than a dollar. Unfortunately, the local government is considering seizing the lake and building hotels around it.

3.) Panajachel, Guatemala: Once a home for bohemians, but the Guatemalan armed conflict created by drug trafficking is changing that. Ex-pats are being harassed and it might not be the safe place it once was.

4.) Damascus, Syria: The Syrian Civil War has ravaged Damascus, with some of the fighting happening in the Old City. It’s too early to tell, but many of the historical mosques have probably been badly damaged.

5.) Great Barrier Reef, Australia: The reef stretches over 1,200 miles off the coast of Queensland, Australia. It is also the only living organism that can be seen from space. The reef has lost more than half of its coral since the 80s. In 2013, the Australian government authorized the construction of a new port that would result in 3 million cubic meters of seabed being dredged.

6.) Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania: Over the past 150 years, Kilimanjaro’s ice fields have been shrinking. Only 10% of the original snow remains and it could disappear completely in the next decade.

7.) Ujung Kulon National Park, Indonesia: This is the last refuge of the Java rhinoceros, the most endangered animal in the world. Poachers have driven its population down to only 40 individuals.

8.) Seaflower Biosphere Reserve: This reserve is one of the most isolated ecosystems in the Caribbean. There is low human impact and it is a UNESCO Marine Reserve, protecting Seaflower from economic exploitation. In 2013, international courts gave Nicaragua half of Seaflower’s area. In the future, there could be oil drilling.

9.) Lake Nicaragua: This lake has the only population of freshwater sharks in the world. Recently, the government has approved the Nicaragua Canal, which will link the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Environmentalists have warned of the canal’s irreversible effects on the local environment.

10.) Yasuni National Park, Ecuador: The park is located in the Ecuadorian Amazon and is one of the most biologically diverse areas on Earth. It is home to more than 4,000 plant species, 170 mammal species, and 610 bird species. It’s also home to the Waorani people. In 2013, Ecuador approved the economic exploitation of the Yasuni.

11.) South Aral Sea, Uzbekistan: 30 years ago, this sea was the fourth-largest lake in the world. Now, Aral is 10% of its original size. The Aral is divided between the North and South Aral Seas and it is being exploited for the oil and gas in the seabeds.

12.) Darien Gap: This gap is a dense jungle between Panama and Colombia. It’s the only section of the Americas not traversed by the Panamerican Highway. It is truly isolated, but when highways are built, that’ll change.

13.) Vientiane, Laos: Vientiane is the Laotian capital city. China and Vietnam are in an economic dispute for the contracts that will bring Vientiane into the 21st century. The city will soon see an economic boom.

14.) Yangon, Myanmar: Yangon is the former capital and biggest city of Myanmar. For years, there was a travel boycott, but it was lifted in 2012. Now, the city is open to the West and has been transforming.

15.) Somaliland: This is breakaway state from Somalia, unrecognized by any other nation. Somaliland is a stable and democratic state, although not a nation yet, has welcomed a Coca Cola plant.

16.) Havana, Cuba: It’s the largest city in the Caribbean, filled with colonial-era buildings and cars from the 1950s. The country looks to embrace foreign investment and Havana should experience some dramatic changes.

17.) Lake Chad: This lake spreads between Chad, Niger, Nigeria, and Cameroon. It’s drying up fast, but no one knows why. Lake Chad has lost 90% of its water in the last 50 years.

18.) Nuuk, Greenland: This is the capital of Greenland, the largest island in the world. There are only 15,000 people now, but when Greenland gains independence from Denmark, it will tap into the ores all over the island. Then, thousands of mining workers will flood in.

19.) Sapa, Vietnam: This is a remote town in the mountains of northern Vietnam. This once-small, secluded place is now among Vietnam’s biggest tourist destinations, diluting what originally made it special.

20.) Bagan, Myanmar: This is a colossal complex which encompasses more than 2,200 temples and ruins. The number of tourists visiting the temples has recently been expanding. You used to be able to have a temple to yourself, now it’ll be different.

ISIS unveils new hashtag campaign around captive journalist Steven Sotloff

#StevensHeadinObamasHands
We dont wanna kill him

But

As you do
As you get

If you attack us
We will beheaded him as a goat”

— areeej (@Areej73225183) August 22, 2014

ISIS militants who recently beheaded journalist James Foley are using another captive journalist, Steven Sotloff, as part of a social media campaign to encourage President Barack Obama and the United States to back off.

ISIS supporters have been attaching the hashtag #StevensHeadInObamasHands to tweets as part of a coordinated PR campaign. As Vocativ reports:

As part of the new campaign that went live on Sunday morning, ISIS has called on its supporters on Twitter and Facebook to help create public pressure on the U.S. president and terrorize the American public so that its demands are met. In a forum post, the group offered 13 different phrases to be published and tweeted, all of them using the #StevensHeadInObamasHands hashtag, along with a variety of images relating to the threat.

Some of the less graphic entries include the following.

12 Everyday Items That Were Strangely Invented During Wartime

It’s undeniable that war is terrible.

Moving political agendas forward by using war (even to protect the citizens of a country) always results in tragic deaths. On the flip side, though, it can also create economic growth and some surprising inventions.

Necessity is the mother of all inventions, and that is doubly true during wartime. These items (some of which you use daily) were created during times of war. Did you have any idea?

1. Tabasco hot sauce

In the 1850s, a soldier gave his banker friend in New Orleans named Edmund Mcilhenny some delicious Capsicum hot peppers from Mexico. He was serving in the United States-Mexican war when he found them. The man loved the peppers so much, he planted them on his wife’s family’s plantation on Avery Island, just off the Louisiana Gulf Coast. Eventually, the Mcilhenny family used the peppers to create Tabasco Sauce. The sauce was eventually so popular, it was included in C-Rations for soldiers fighting overseas during World War I.

2. Individual tea bags

For soldiers on the front, it can be difficult to gain access to common food staples. Supposedly, in 1908, a U.S. tea importer named Thomas Sullivan accidentally invented the modern teabag by sending samples of his loose leaf to customers in small silk pouches. For the troops in World War I, this was a happy discovery, as they could then brew individual cups of tea.

3. Sanitary napkins

Kotex sanitary napkins were created as a result of the invention of cellucotton, which is a pulp by-product of processed sugar cane. The absorbent, but disposable, substance was used to dress soldiers’ wounds during World War I. Then, nurses used it for sanitary pads while stationed overseas. As a result, Kimberly-Clark began marketing Kotex disposable sanitary pads in 1920.

4. Hostess Twinkies

Originally, in the 1930s, Twinkies were made with a banana filling. During World War II, however, there was a sudden banana shortage and Hostess had to pivot. Instead, they created Twinkies with vanilla cream filling…which were a hit and led to the modern Twinkie.

5. Canned goods

The Emperor Napoleon and a chef named Nicolas Appert created a modern household staple: canned goods. In 1795, Napoleon was worried about getting food to troops that were off fighting his war. So, he offered a prize of 12,000 francs to any man who could find a way to safely preserve food. After 15 years of attempts, Nicolas Appert perfected the canning process.

6. Wrist watch

Although wrist watches were created before World War I, their regular use by soldiers made them extremely popular. Watches allowed officers to efficiently time their actions with others (without using visual cues and giving themselves away). Soon after the war, everyone in London was wearing a wrist watch.

7. Portable x-ray machine

At the beginning of World War I, the portable x-ray machine was invented and perfected by scientists. In particular, the famed scientist Marie Curie worked with countless teams to outfit Red Cross trucks with mobile field units. This technology eliminated many hours of travel time for patients with severe injuries, potentially saving their lives.

8. Blood banks

Before World War I, if a dying patient desperately needed a blood transfusion, doctors would need to find a willing and healthy patient to donate the blood. Thankfully, physicians soon discovered that, by adding sodium citrate to the blood, donated blood could last outside of a patient’s body without coagulating. Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson then created the first blood bank on the battlefield of France in 1917.

9. Duct tape

A woman named Vesta Stoudt was working at a plant during World War II when she noticed something alarming. The packaging of the cartridges she was inspecting was faulty. The paper tape sealing off the ammunition was hard to remove because it would rip, making it difficult for soldiers to quickly access the package’s contents in the field. As a result, she invented duct tape. Not only would it seal the boxes, but it could be removed without tearing.

10. Embalming

Although even early Egyptians were embalming their dead, it wasn’t until the Civil War that U.S. surgeons discovered how to preserve a body so that it could be sent home for a proper burial. It’s believe that a Dr. Thomas Holmes perfected the process and embalmed over 4,000 bodies of deceased Union soldiers.

11. Antibiotics (such a penicillin)

Penicillin’s creation may be one of the most important discoveries of all time. It was originally discovered in 1928 by Scottish scientist Sir Alexander Fleming, but it was in 1941 that doctors realized that Penicillin could be used to treat wounds for soldiers. After that, the limits and benefits of the drug were explored and it’s still used all over the world.

12. Instant coffee

The “essence of coffee” was created for Civil War soldiers in the 1860s. Small instant coffee cakes were given to Union troops as part of their rations. After that, the popularity of instant coffee exploded.

(via All Day)

The inventions that were a result of war don’t justify the violence, but it is fascinating what positive things can coalesce as a result.

Epstein Death Sets Off Wild Wave Of Conspiracy Theories

WELCOME TO “THE LATE SHOW,” ONE AND ALL. I’M YOUR HOST STEPHEN COLBERT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) I HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS. I DIDN’T THINK IT WAS POSSIBLE, BUT DONALD TRUMP CAN STILL SHOCK ME. ( LAUGHTER ) >> Jon: WHOA, SHOCK! >> Stephen: IT’S KIND OF NICE, YOU KNOW, AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, HE CAN KEEP THE RELATIONSHIP FRESH. JUST WHEN YOU THINK, YOU KNOW, HE’S BEEN AROUND FOR A WHILE AND YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BE SHOCKED BY HIM ANYMORE, HE POPS UP AND SCARES THE ( BLEEP ) OUT OF YOU. ( LAUGHTER ) HE’S, LIKE, LEATHERFACE BUT WITH MORE LEATHER AND WAY MORE FACE. ( LAUGHTER ) FOR INSTANCE, OVER THE WEEKEND, SEX CRIMINAL JEFFREY EPSTEIN WAS FOUND DEAD IN HIS NEW YORK JAIL CELL. NOW, HE APPARENTLY, THEY SAY — AND I GUESS THEY WOULD KNOW, THOUGH THEY CAN’T SAY HOW — ( LAUGHTER ) COMMITTED SUICIDE, WHICH IS SURPRISING BECAUSE, THREE WEEKS AGO, HE WAS FOUND UNCONSCIOUS WITH MARKS ON HIS NECK.

HOW THE MARKS GOT THERE, THE AUTHORITIES DID NOT SHARE WITH THE PUBLIC. AND YET, EPSTEIN WAS LEFT ALONE AND NOT CLOSELY MONITORED. NOW, MAYBE HE WAS JUST IN ONE OF THOSE PRISONS THAT REALLY VALUES INMATE PRIVACY! ( LAUGHTER ) LOVELY. THEN AGAIN, EPSTEIN KNEW A LOT OF POWERFUL AND IMPORTANT PEOPLE, INCLUDING ALAN DERSHOWITZ, FORMER NEW MEXICO GOVERNOR BILL RICHARDSON, PRINCE ANDREW, AS WELL AS PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON AND PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP. IT’S A WHO’S WHO OF “WHO’S JEFFREY EPSTEIN? I’VE NEVER MET JEFFREY EPSTEIN.” ( LAUGHTER ) THIS HAS SET OFF A WAVE OF WILD CONSPIRACY THEORIES ONLINE. THE SORT OF STUFF THAT ONLY UNSTABLE TINFOIL HAT LOONS COULD POSSIBLY BELIEVE, SO DONALD TRUMP. ( LAUGHTER ) ( PIANO RIFF ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) TRUMP FANS, THEY’RE COMING AROUND! COMING AROUND! BECAUSE A FEW HOURS AFTER EPSTEIN’S BODY WAS FOUND, TRUMP SHARED A TWEET AND VIDEO THAT CLAIMED WITHOUT EVIDENCE THAT FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON AND FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR EPSTEIN’S DEATH. ( AUDIENCE REACTS ) REALLY? REALLY? THAT’S YOUR THEORY? I’M NOT SAYING THE CLINTONS DON’T HAVE ANY POWER– HE COULD DEFINITELY GET A RESERVATION AT ANY RESTAURANT IN NEW YORK CITY, PARTY OF FOUR, ON A SATURDAY — MAYBE NOT — BUT MASTERMINDING A SCHEME TO ASSASSINATE A HIGH PROFILE PRISONER IN MAXIMUM SECURITY FEDERAL CUSTODY? THEY COULDN’T EVEN MASTERMIND A VISIT TO WISCONSIN.

( LAUGHTER ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF ) BUT TRUMP CLEARLY THINKS IT’S THE LOGICAL ANSWER. (AS TRUMP) “FOLLOW ME DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE HERE. OKAY? WHO HAD THE MOST TO GAIN FROM EPSTEIN’S DEATH BESIDES ME WHO IS ON VIDEOTAPE PARTYING WITH HIM AND YOUNG WOMEN? ( LAUGHTER ) AND WHO CONTROLS ALL FEDERAL PRISONS? THE PRESIDENT. BILL CLINTON! ( LAUGHTER ) REALLY? WHAT? ME? HOW? ( LAUGHTER ) DIDN’T THEY HEAR WHAT I SAID ON THAT BUS? THIS IS INSANE.” YES, IT IS INSANE, MR.

PRESIDENT. THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS PUSHING A DANGEROUS AND COMPLETELY UNFOUNDED MURDER CONSPIRACY THEORY ABOUT HIS PREDECESSOR. IT REMINDS ME OF F.D.R.’S IMMORTAL WORDS: >> THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO FEAR IS — HERBERT HOOVER! HE’S A LIZARD ALIEN! THEY WALK AMONG US! RUN!” ( LAUGHTER ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) >> Stephen: MISS THAT MAN. THIS CAME RIGHT ON THE HEELS OF TRUMP’S VISITS TO DAYTON, OHIO AND EL PASO, TEXAS. IN A TIME OF NATIONAL TRAGEDY, WE LOOK TO THE PRESIDENT TO CONSOLE A NATION. BUT DONALD TRUMP WAS LOOKING TO HEAL A DEEPER WOUND: HIS EGO.

( LAUGHTER ) AIDES SAY THAT WHEN TRUMP DOES SOMETHING THAT HE BELIEVES HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PRAISED FOR, SUCH AS WEDNESDAY’S VISITS TO THE CITIES, HE GROWS FURIOUS WHEN HE DOES NOT RECEIVE ACCOLADES. (AS TRUMP) “I’D JUST LIKE TO SAY TO ALL THOSE SUFFERING HERE IN DAYTON, YOU’RE WELCOME. ( LAUGHTER ) WOULD IT KILL YOU TO SMILE?” ( AUDIENCE REACTS ) THIS WOULD EXPLAIN WHY, ON HIS WAY TO EL PASO, AFTER TRUMP SAW NEGATIVE NEWS COVERAGE, HE SCREAMED AT HIS AIDES TO BEGIN PRODUCING PROOF THAT, IN EL PASO, PEOPLE WERE HAPPY TO SEE HIM.

BUT NOT ONE OF THE EIGHT PATIENTS STILL BEING TREATED WANTED TO MEET WITH THE PRESIDENT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) (AS SURVIVOR) “I JUST SURVIVED A NATIONAL TRAGEDY, DON’T MAKE ME MEET ONE.” ( LAUGHTER ) ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) THAT’S REALLY GOT TO BE A BLOW TO TRUMP’S EGO. (AS TRUMP) “THEY DON’T WANT TO MEET ME? WHO DO THEY THINK THEY ARE? A CHAMPIONSHIP SPORTS TEAM? ( LAUGHTER ) I EVEN BROUGHT A TABLE OF CONGEALED BIG MAC.” ( LAUGHTER ) “IT CONGEALS INTO ONE LARGER MAC. ( LAUGHTER ) ( PIANO RIFF ) TO COMPENSATE, ADMINISTRATORS BROUGHT BACK TWO PATIENTS WHO HAD ALREADY BEEN DISCHARGED WHO EXPRESSED A WILLINGNESS TO MEET WITH THE PRESIDENT. THAT MUST HAVE BEEN A STRANGE CALL.

(AS PATIENT ON PHONE) “WHAT’S THAT, DOCTOR? YOU NEED ME TO COME BACK TO THE HOSPITAL? THERE’S AN INFECTION? AND IT WANTS A PICTURE WITH ME?” ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) ( PIANO RIFF ) THE PRESS WERE NOT ALLOWED INSIDE THE HOSPITAL, BUT CELLPHONE VIDEO SHOWED TRUMP CONSOLING THE SURVIVORS IN THE ONLY WAY HE KNEW HOW: BY TALKING ABOUT HIS EL PASO RALLY FROM FEBRUARY. >> THAT WAS SOME CROWD. NK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO.

>> WE HAD TWICE THE NUMBER OUTSIDE. AND THEN YOU HAD THIS CRAZY BETO. BETO HAD LIKE 400 PEOPLE IN A PARKING LOT AND THEY SAY HIS CROWD WAS WONDERFUL. >> STEPHEN: A BEAUTIFUL SENTIMENT, WHICH IS WHY EVERY TIME I HEAD TO A FUNERAL I CONSOLE THE FAMILY WITH MY STRAIGHT A’S REPORT CARD FROM 8TH GRADE. PRETTY GREAT. PRETTY GREAT. ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE, I TID NOT MAKE ONE A IN EIGHTH GRADE.

( LAUGHTER ) ONE OF THE PATIENTS INVITED BACK TO THE HOSPITAL TO MEET THE PRESIDENT WAS AN INFANT BOY WHO LOST BOTH HIS PARENTS IN THE SHOOTING. THIS IS AN UNSPEAKABLE TRAGEDY THAT WILL ALTER THE CHILD’S LIFE FOREVER, SO, NATURALLY, IN THE PHOTO, TRUMP IS SMILING, AND GIVING A BIG THUMBS UP. WHO DOES THAT? (AS TRUMP) “HEY, WHO’S GOT TWO THUMBS AND PUTS THEM UP AT THE WORST POSSIBLE TIME? THIS GUY.” AND HIS CRITICS AREN’T THE ONLY ONES WHO NOTICED THE WEIRDNESS. SUCH PICTURES HAVE CONCERNED WHITE HOUSE AIDES, WHO HAVE ENCOURAGED HIM TO STRIKE A MORE EMPATHETIC TONE. WHAT HIS AIDES DON’T UNDERSTAND IS THAT TRUMP HAS ONLY ONE PHOTO POSE AND HE USES IT WITH EVERYONE — BEAUTY PAGEANT WINNERS, DICTATORS, OTHER DICTATORS, LIL’ JON AND TACO BOWLS.

( LAUGHTER ) (AS TRUMP) “I’M SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS, TACO BOWL.” ( LAUGHTER ) ( PIANO RIFF ) .

As flags burn, Goldie Taylor recognizes ‘gladiators on the streets of STL’

http://twitter.com/#!/goldietaylor/status/520384027006484481

As Twitchy has reported, demonstrators in south St. Louis have spent the night so far blocking traffic, banging on cars trying to get through, shattering an apartment window, trying to steal a reporter’s iPhone, and burning several American flags. Are these the “real gladiators” writer and MSNBC/CNN contributor had in mind when she urged her followers to remember them?

We’ve identified the trolls and cowards here, but we’re still not sure who the gladiator is. Probably the guy who put the reporter and mother of two in a headlock to steal her iPhone? That sounds pretty badass.

Columbia faculty, protesters split over whether Charles Murray’s work is ‘tendentious dogma’ or genocide

Things might very well heat up later as Charles Murray (hopefully) takes the stage as scheduled at Columbia University to deliver a speech on what he calls the cultural divide between America’s “new” upper class and lower class.

So far, only the early bird contingent seems to have assembled in front of the school, chanting about racism and genocide.
