Will there be a national holiday on Monday in Germany? Wink  Just jk.  Well played Angie.  Serena's a great champion but it's always refreshing to see a different slam winner on the WTA.

Congrats to Angelique Kerber for winning the Australian Open against Serena Williams. You played a great match! And Serena, you are an absolute sportswoman and gracious in defeat.

I saw this yesterday and lead to .. what.. maybe 2 hours of reading through articles in the CNN Money section. Which NEVER happens haha.

http://money.cnn.com/2016/01/12/investing/markets-sell-everything-cataclysmic-year-rbs/index.html

are we heading toward total meltdown in 2016?  I really had no idea just how bad things were getting in China. For me ignorance is bliss when it comes to finances. Raff gets my paychecks and handles everything. I am a disaster at financial managment.

I tried the coke and hookers investment method once and while it made me happy, it sure did nothing to make me wealthier.

One of my best buddies' grandad (a Scot) was drinking a solid triple dram of single malt everyday after lunch every day and he died at 103 (and I'm sure it's because he forgot to have his triple dram the day before TongueLOL)

In the UK we are getting bored of all the government 'advice' about what's good and bad for you. I don't know anyone who pays any attention to any of it. It changes every couple of years anyway.

Newsflash: You're going to die regardless of whether or not you drink, and there's no guarantee you'll live longer if you don't..

Before there was ranchers and miners and loggers Malheur was a refuge for migratory birds. If the government does not protect it who will. Not the guys who are occupying it now. They would drain the wetlands and run cattle on it.

Indeed, they won't get what they want under any circumstances. This will end with a standown when they get bored or the authorities cut the power to the building and prevent supplies from entering, or it will end with the police storming the building and arresting most of them and shooting a few of them. It won't end in the sacred civil war for freedom some of them seem to want.

Yeah, I imagine that with first the Charleston church bombing in fresh memory a lot of Americans are probably worrying about a new wave of far-right terrorism... it's just that the Iran embassy burning is the kind of thing that might ignite a WWIII so I'm surprised there's no posts about it.

Militia occupying government buildings in Oregon might not be a big deal in Denmark but here in the American West it is big news.

The murders of war are always horrible, but when the trusted family unit turns on itself like this?

http://news.sky.com/story/1617146/missing-sian-blake-search-three-bodies-found

I don't and have never followed Eastenders, and although seeing stories of these sort of family murder sprees before, it has shocked me that it's happened in the seemingly impenetrable safety of Television Acting?

Her husband must have killed himself out of disgrace, surely?

Things are getting really really bad in Yemen that's for certain: In addition to the Shi'a-Sunni civil war that's overshadowed by the one in Syria, the country is now seeing an outbreak of Dengue Fever. Since it again seems nowhere as internationally recognized as the Ebola epidemic in Western Africa there was worries about going global a while back, which the relevant countries have now gotten under control, this might have the potential to become a global pandemic as well.

The Saudis have been protected far too much by the western media.

It looks like the Shi'a-Sunni conflict is really happening after the Syrian Civil War went global, if anything's gonna trigger a Third World War it's going to be this. See also the ongoing civil war in Yemen, which is woefully underexposed in the Western media.
The Saudi Shia guy that was decapitated, he was not a terrorist never has been one, nor has he ever preached any violence.
