How 33 Chilean Miners Escaped A Collapsed Mine (2010)
 
20:13
Inside the Miracle (2010): In 2010 the story of the 33 Chilean miners trapped in a collapsed mine caught the imagination of people around the world. Despite the excitement and emotion, the impoverished mine workers who were not trapped are being easily forgotten by the international media.

For many Chileans the plight of the miners has also been an inspiration: “I am very proud of my country... hooray for the Chilean miners!” While the miners and their families receive legal advice, psychological support and briefings with politicians, those not trapped by the disaster are being been completely ignored by Chile’s government and the international media. With the trapped 33 likely to receive millions, the rest of the impoverished miners - who are now jobless - are likely to receive no compensation at all. According to one lawyer, “The lawsuit [for the trapped miners] is in the millions – we are asking for a minimum of $1 million for each worker who is trapped in the mine… at least".

Sweet Home Alabama | Haitian Money Pit (VICE on HBO: Season 3, Episode 7)
 
29:54
In 2011, the state of Alabama passed one of the harshest anti-immigrant laws in the history of the United States. Based on the hardline policy known as “self-deportation,” Alabama's HB-56 aimed to make life so miserable for illegal immigrants that they’d opt to leave the state on their own: the law granted police unprecedented powers to arrest, question, and detain suspected illegal immigrants, and even criminalized citizens who provided undocumented workers with jobs, housing, or transportation. The law created a climate of hostility that may have forced tens of thousands of immigrants to flee—and it may also have done real damage to the state’s economy. With illegal immigration roiling American communities and the upcoming presidential race, we sent Thomas Morton to Alabama to see what it would look like if undocumented workers just disappeared. Then: when a massive earthquake ravaged Haiti in 2010, killing more than 300,000 people and leaving more than 2 million survivors homeless, the international community came together to provide nearly $10 billion in relief and reconstruction aid. But where did all that money go? And why are so many Haitians still living in abominable conditions in the very places that foreigners promised to rebuild? VICE’s Vikram Gandhi goes to Port-au-Prince to follow the money trail and see whether the billions of dollars in aid are actually changing the lives for the better.

Various of members of a Canadian mining company, Majescor Resources, placing cylinders of rocks in wooden boxes. (The samples will be sent to Chile to determine how much copper, silver and gold they contain.) 5. Various of rock samples 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Michel Lamarre, Haitian engineer: "It is fantastic for the country, fantastic. First, in the convention that we have with the Haitian Bureau de Mines (Bureau of Mines), we have 50 per cent of the profit. 50 percent of the profit will be split between our company and the government. So it will be a lot of money for the government, a lot of money, we hope, to help that region evolve, to get some people working around the area." 7. Various of a stone cutter at work 8. SOUNDBITE: (Haitian Creole) Joseph Bernard, Haitian worker: "Many people here have found a job with the mining companies. I'm one of them. It has helped me get money to be able to help my family and get them more opportunities." 9. Various of geologist and Haitian workers drilling for Newmont Mining Corporation 10. Mid of a group of children looking at the workers 11. Wide of drilling team STORYLINE: A flurry of exploratory drilling in Haiti has found precious metals worth potentially 20 (b) billion US dollars deep below the tropical ridges in the country's northeastern mountains. Now, a mining company is drilling around the clock to determine how to get those metals out. Haiti's annual budget is one (b) billion U.S. dollars, of which more than half is provided by foreign aid. A windfall from local resources could pay for roads, schools, clean water and sewage systems for the nation's 10 (m) million people, most of whom live on as little as 1.25 US dollars a day. "It is fantastic for the country," said Michel Lamarre, a Haitian engineer whose firm, SOMINE, is leading the exploration. "It will be a lot of money for the government, a lot of money, we hope, to help the region evolve, to get some people working around the area." Stone cutter Joseph Bernard, 47, said that before he got a job slicing rock samples, his family was going hungry. They had one cow and their peanut and bean fields had turned to dust after months without rain. Now his son and two daughters have started school. "Many people here have found a job with the mining companies. I'm one of them. It has helped me get money to be able to help my family and get them more opportunities," he said. On a rugged, steep Haitian ridge far above the Atlantic, brilliant boulders coated with blue-green oxidised copper jut from the hills, while colourful pebbles litter the soil, strong indicators that precious metals lie below. Geologists extrapolating from depth and strike reports estimate there may be at least one (m) million ounces (28-thousand kilograms) of gold at two sites. In April, prospectors also found the first significant silver deposit ever reported in Haiti: between 20 and 30 (m) million ounces (567-thousand to 850-thousand kilograms). And geologists suspect that more than one (m) million tonnes of copper may also lay beneath the top soil. Gold was last gathered in Haiti in the 1500s, after Christopher Columbus ran his ship the Santa Maria onto a Haitian reef. Spaniards enslaved the Arawak Indians to dig for gold, killing them off with harsh conditions and infectious diseases. When the Spaniards learned of even more lucrative deposits in Mexico, they moved on. It was only after the catastrophic 2010 earthquake that investors saw real opportunity. Though the contractual terms are generous for Haiti there is plenty to be cautious about.

Kim Ives on His Report, "WikiLeaks Haiti: The Aristide Files" (Democracy Now!)
 
10:09
DemocracyNow.org - A new exposé on Haiti reveals how the United States led a vast international campaign to prevent former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide from returning to his country while he was exiled in South Africa. It's part of a series of reports by The Nation magazine and the Haitian weekly Haïti Liberté that draw from almost 2,000 U.S. diplomatic cables on Haiti released by WikiLeaks. The cables show that high-level U.S. and U.N. officials coordinated a politically motivated prosecution of Aristide to prevent him from "gaining more traction with the Haitian population and returning to Haiti." The United States and its allies allegedly poured tens of millions of dollars into unsuccessful efforts to slander Aristide as a drug trafficker, human rights violator, and heretical practitioner of voodoo. Another recent exposé based on the cables details how Haiti's unelected de facto authorities worked alongside foreign officials to integrate at least 400 ex-army paramilitaries into the country's police force throughout 2004 and 2005. The WikiLeaks cables reveal just how closely Washington and the United Nations oversaw the formation of Haiti's new police force and signed off on the integration of paramilitaries who had previously targeted Haiti's poor majority and democratically elected governments. Democracy Now! interviews Haïti Liberté editor Kim Ives, whose latest article for TheNation.com is "WikiLeaks Haiti: The Aristide Files."

More Than $5 Billion Promised to Rebuild Haiti
 
03:59
This is the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com More than fifty countries and organizations have promised to give more than five billion dollars to help Haiti rebuild after an earthquake destroyed much of the country in January. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the amount of money was greater than expected. Mister Ban, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Haitian President Rene Preval led a conference of donors at the U.N. March thirty-first. The Secretary-General said nations and their international partners promised five billion three hundred million dollars for the next two years and almost ten billion dollars in total. The United States promised more than one billion dollars. The European Union said it would give more than one and one half billion dollars. Mister Ban urged the donors to carry out their promises. He said the donors must make sure Haiti gets the money it needs when it needs it. And they must guarantee that the money is well spent. The money will be used to meet emergency needs, such as water, food and shelter for homeless people in Haiti. It will also be used to rebuild Haitis infrastructure its important systems and services. These include transportation and communications systems, water and power lines, and public institutions including schools and hospitals. The money will also create new jobs, and put the country on the road to sustainable development. It is expected to take ten years and more than eleven billion dollars to finish the job. Secretary Clinton said donors and the government of Haiti showed a new level of international support, coordination and cooperation. Haitian President Rene Preval expressed his thanks and said the Haitian people and government would do their part to make the countrys rebuilding a success. Haitis government will have the major responsibility for supervising those plans. It will work closely with international partners, including the United Nations, the United States and international financial organizations. The huge earthquake that struck Haiti killed more than two hundred thirty thousand people. It left more than a million other people homeless in a nation where most citizens were already living in deep poverty. And thats the VOA Special English Economics Report.

Powerful earthquake hits off Chilean coast
 
02:06
Our top story at this hour... Chile has been rocked by a massive magnitude 8-point-2 earthquake that triggered a tsunami. For the latest,... we connect live by phone to our Shin Se-min. Se-min, fill us in. Yes, Conn-young,... a magnitude-8-point-2 earthquake struck off the coast of northern Chile Tuesday evening local time,... causing landslides and prompting authorities to issue a tsunami warning that forced those in coastal areas to evacuate. The Chilean government has so far reported a total of five deaths. Power has been knocked out for thousands of local residents, several businesses caught on fire,... and some roads are cut off due to landslides. Thousands of people in the region have been forced out of their homes. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued tsunami warnings for Chile, Peru and Ecuador, and another advisory was issued for the Hawaiian coast. Other countries in Central America remains under a tsunami watch. Yes, Se-min, I believe the magnitute of the quake was upgraded at one point,... is that right? That's right. The U.S. Geographical Survey said the quake centered 98-kilometers northwest of the Chilean mining port of Iquique,... 10 kilometers deep in the Pacific Ocean at 8:46 in the evening. The USGS initially reported the quake at 8-point-0,... but later upgraded the magnitute to 8-point-2. The quake caused small landslides as waves measuring 2 meters struck northern coastal cities within 45 minutes of the quake. At least nine aftershocks in the magnitude-5 range or higher have been recorded since. Chile is part of the Pacific's "Ring of Fire," an area where earthquakes and volcanic eruptions often occur. The area has been hit with a number of quakes over the past two weeks. That was our Shin Se-min reporing on the ongoing crisis in Chile,... and we will bring you more updates as it develops.

CLINTON CASH -  Full Documentary
 
01:04:57
CLINTON CASH - Full Documentary Text below from article by Tyler Durden Clinton Cash: "Devastating" Documentary Reveals How Clintons Went From "Dead Broke" To Mega Wealthy Clinton Cash, a feature documentary based on the Peter Schweizer book, has been posted to YouTube for all to view free just in time for the DNC. Clinton Cash investigates how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being “dead broke” after leaving the White House to amassing a net worth of over $150 million, with over $2 billion in donations to their foundation. This wealth was accumulated during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors. The New York Times hailed the book as “The most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle" while MSNBC described the documentary as devastating for the Hillary campaign. The Clinton camp has, of course, dismissed the documentary as a right-wing smear campaign filled with unsubstantiated conspiracy theories. That said, perhaps the most shocking aspect of the release is that many of the biggest bombshells revealed in the documentary have been vetted and confirmed by various mainstream media outlets. More recently, some information uncovered in the Panama Papers has echoed some of Schweitzer’s allegations in the movie and book. Just to highlight a few of the scandals detailed in the documentary: Russian Purchase of US Uranium Assets in Return for $145mm in Contributions to the Clinton Foundation - Bill and Hillary Clinton assisted a Canadian financier, Frank Giustra, and his company, Uranium One, in the acquisition of uranium mining concessions in Kazakhstan and the United States. Subsequently, the Russian government sought to purchase Uranium One but required approval from the Obama administration given the strategic importance of the uranium assets. In the run-up to the approval of the deal by the State Department, nine shareholders of Uranium One just happened to make $145mm in donations to the Clinton Foundation. Moreover, the New Yorker confirmed that Bill Clinton received $500,000 in speaking fees from a Russian investment bank, with ties to the Kremlin, around the same time. Needless to say, the State Department approved the deal giving Russia ownership of 20% of U.S. uranium assets Lucrative Haiti Gold Mining Permit Awarded to Hillary's Brother - The Washington Post confirmed claims that Hillary's brother, Tony Rodham, sat on the board of a mining company that just happened to score a lucrative gold mining permit in Haiti, one of only two permits to be awarded in 50 years, while then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton funneled billions of taxpayer dollars to the island in the wake of the devastating earthquake of 2010 Keystone Pipeline Support in Return for $2mm in Speaking Fees - After not being engaged to speak by TD Bank during his first 8 years out of the White House, Bill Clinton began a string of speeches for the bank starting just 4 days after Hillary was nominated as secretary of state resulting in over $2mm in speaking fees. As it turns out, TD Bank happened to be the single largest shareholder in the Keystone XL pipeline which needed State Department approval. Wouldn't you know it, Hillary Clinton decided to support the pipeline — a heresy to environmentalists — and delayed the Obama administration’s rejection of it While these accusations, many of which have been substantiated by multiple sources, would be devastating to mere mortal presidential candidates, we're certain these are just a few more negative data points that will not stick to the teflon-coated Clinton couple. -- And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

SOUNDBITE (English) Charles MacDermott, Rescue team spokesman: "It''s a very wonderful night because we''ve worked almost 26 hours straight for those two survivors." 19. Ambulance leaving rescue area AUDIO: clapping STORYLINE Rescue workers continued to sift through the rubble of Haiti''s ravaged capital on Sunday in a desperate battle to free survivors and made a few dramatic rescues days after the earthquake struck. While for many the situation remained bleak five days after the devastating tremors, there were a few glimmers of hope for some people still searching for their loved ones. In Port-au-Prince, a 15-year-old girl was rescued by a US team. Cheers could be heard from the mostly Haitian crowd as they stood by and watched for hours as the rescue crew painstakingly dug through the rubble to reach the young girl. After surviving 126 hours in the debris, two victims were pulled alive from the wreckage of a collapsed supermarket late on Sunday to applause from onlookers. Search teams from Florida and New York City pulled a 30-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman from what had been the supermarket''s fourth floor. Both were said by rescuers to be in a stable condition. "She''s with it. So she''s in very good shape for somebody who''s been basically trapped for five days," said rescue team captain Joseph Zohrahbon. The rescue team said the pair had been able to access food from the store that was buried with them, allowing them to survive underground for so long. Emergency teams said they were still hopeful of finding more survivors in other parts of the damaged store. "It''s a very wonderful night because we''ve worked almost 26 hours straight for those two survivors" said one rescuer. According to the UN around 1,700 rescue workers had saved more than 70 lives since the quake on Tuesday.

The Role of Digital Humanities in a Major Natural Disaster
 
33:54
Speaker: Dr Paul Millar, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand In the months since a 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit New Zealand's Canterbury province in September 2010, the region has experience over ten thousand aftershocks, 430 above magnitude 4.0. The most devastating aftershock, a 6.2 earthquake under the centre of Christchurch on 22 February 2011, had one of the highest peak ground acceleration rates ever recorded. This event claimed 185 lives, damaged 80% of the central city beyond repair, and forced the abandonment of 6,000 homes. It was the third costliest insurance event in history. In this talk Paul Millar, the CEISMIC Canterbury Earthquakes Digital Archive project leader, discusses the role of digital humanities in developing an international resource to preserve the digital record of the earthquakes' impacts and the long-term process of recovery. Millar's initial project proposal was predicated on the belief that "when all the empirical data around the earthquakes has been collected and the city's infrastructure restored, the effects will still be felt among families and communities for decades to come, and that these experiences needed to be recorded, preserved and made available for commemoration and scholarship." This view was fully supported by University of Canterbury senior management, who endorsed the CEISMIC project's digital humanities approach by resourcing it at an equivalent level to a number of the university's world-leading geology and engineering earthquake research projects. Since the CEISMIC project began, it has grown and evolved in ways far exceeding the scope of the initial proposal. Millar suggests that the evolution of the project reflects both the need for humanities scholars to be prepared to play a practical role in recovery following such major events, and the value and validity of digital humanities principles of openness and collaboration.

Various of man cleaning motorcycle with pressure cleaner and generator 13. Wide of street pedicure stand 14. Various of beautician working on client 15. Wide of stand STORYLINE The first visit by a French president for over 100 years has raised hopes among Haitian government officials of a warming in relations between the former coloniser and its subject state. Relations between the two countries have been fraught with tension and suspicion since slaves revolted and threw their masters out of the country in 1804. Ever since, Haitians have regarded the French with bitterness and suspicion, while embracing many aspects of French culture, including a version of the language. However Haitian President Rene Preval appeared upbeat about French President Nicolas Sarkozy''s imminent arrival on Wednesday, telling reporters that it would be an historic occasion. France has already said it was cancelling all of Haiti''s 56 (m) million euro (77 (m) million US dollar) debt to Paris. The French president is likely to be sobered by what he finds when he lands in this devastated capital: rubble-strewn streets, downed electrical pylons, tens of thousands living in tents, a desperate and traumatised people requiring food, water and medical assistance for years to come. But there is also resilience and the stirrings of lives returning to a semblance of normality. A man operates a make-shift car wash with a pressure cleaner and generator. A street-side salon on the Champ de Mars, in front of the country''s destroyed Presidential palace, offers manicures and pedicures in the open air. When widespread electricity is restored, something no one is predicting will happen soon, the government hopes it will galvanise Haiti''s weak economy and spur recovery from the effects of the catastrophic January 12 earthquake. The magnitude-7 earthquake smashed up Port-au-Prince, killing more than 200-thousand people and leaving more than a (m) million homeless. Haitian politicians this week diplomatically skirted the question of reparations - a demand put to Paris by ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in 2004. That suggests Sarkozy''s four-hour visit could herald a new era. Some are welcoming France''s new interest in what was its richest colony as a counterbalance to the United States, which occupied Haiti from 1915 to 1934 and has sent troops three times in the past 16 years. French officials say Sarkozy will announce details of "a French plan for the reconstruction of Haiti" - if Haitian officials agree. Sarkozy himself has said the catastrophe, following so many others, offers "a chance to get Haiti once and for all out of the curse it seems to have You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/e638f7dd9142dad4acc51aea2ba807ad Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

A RIVER ON FIRE! Gas explodes from Australian river near fracking site.
 
01:58
A RIVER ON FIRE! Gas explodes from Australian river near fracking site. I was shocked by force of the explosion when I tested whether gas boiling through the Condamine River, Qld was flammable. So much gas is bubbling through the river that it held a huge flame. There has been concern that fracking and extraction of coal seam gas could cause gas to migrate through the rock. Not only is it polluting the river and air, but methane is an extremely potent heat trapping gas. Fugitive emissions from the unconventional gas industry could be a major contributor to climate change and make gas as dirty as burning coal. Gas first started bubbling though the river shortly after the coal seam gas industry took off in the Chinchilla area. Since then the volume of gas bubbling through the river has massively increased and has spread along the river. You can see stakes in the river bank were the Queensland Government has marked each gas seep. You can also see pipework near the river where Origin Energy has installed for monitoring the gas bubbling through the river. Thanks to John Jenkyn for taking me up the river in his tinnie. He's a champion!

TURKEY Military Conflict October 2011

On Aug.20,2011 In a vision, Turkey is seen embroiled in MILITARY CONFLICT and INSURRECTION soon: By September - October, Turkey is seen surprisingly in conflict with their ally SYRIA concerning the INSURRECTION and the brutality against the people: Turkey responded by: - Opening its Borders to Refugees - Threatened Enforced Buffer Zone in Syria - Confiscated Syrian Weapon Ship - Process of sending Army to Border - Warned Syria against Suppression - Attempted UN Security Council Resolution - Process of its own Resolution - Military Arms Embargo - Military Syrian Border Exercises ............................................ No seismologist can, nor was able to predict the devastating earthquakes from Haiti 2010 to Japan 2011. Overwhelmed by the carnage, scientists with futility study snakes, frogs etc. A few gospel preachers only, credibly predicted them, some on this channel. Unfortunately they were unheard or despised. Jesus exclusively REVEALS some calamities to his followers as his 'SIGNATURE' appeal to atheistic, humanistic mankind of His deity and caring participation in their affairs. He reminds them that life is beyond physical but also spiritual, that he must be worshipped. "Now I tell you before it come that when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I AM he(God)-John 13:19" HOW TO BE SAVED: To The Honest Enquirer, PRAY one of the following prayers: "LORD JESUS, I BELIEVE THAT YOU DIED ON THE CROSS FOR MY SINS.

We are changing the waters of the body as well, as we are mostly water. One of our straight-forward messages is that optimal physical and mental health can be achieved by changing the polluted waters of the body to self-cleaning water. As the polluted waters are removed from the body and the brain, especially the pineal gland, we have the opportunity to raise our consciousness to higher-consciousness and we are able to overcome illness as we set out intentions with humbleness and purity of heart in Love. Much of the changing of the water we do is accomplished with the powerful intentions. Some of it is with proprietary technology that must be carefully guarded because if it were to get into the wrong hands it could be used for destructive purposes instead of the benevolent purposes we are committed too. Each day we find more and more instances wherein water is being polluted by organisms and chemicals. Some people have been seen lighting the water coming from their kitchen taps on fire due to chemicals and gases in the water supply. Finding sources of pristine water is getting increasingly hard to find. Catastrophes are also causing shortages of water which is followed by illness, even terminal illness. If you've ever tried to buy bottled water shortly before or after an extreme weather event, you know it doesn't take long until store shelves are stripped bare. They can't truck it in fast enough. That's why prudent "thrivalists" know to have a safe water supply. In earthquakes, a safe water supply is one of the first things to go. The massive earthquake in the nation of Haiti in 2010 affected over 3 million people. Finding clean water became a huge problem. A cholera epidemic quickly swept the nation. At this writing, it's still not under control, and the death toll -- just from dirty water -- is well into the thousands. In February of 2011, a 6.0 earthquake struck the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. Quakes of this magnitude typically aren't too devastating, but this time it was ... because everything in Christchurch was weakened from a 7.0 quake that had struck less than six months previously. One out of five residents were still without electricity from the first quake. Much of the city had still not been rebuilt. The February 2011 event, though not as large, was closer to the surface, causing greater amounts of damage. Water was one of many urgent problems. In a city of over 350,000, half the residents had water that was contaminated ... while the other half had none at all. In no time flat, there wasn't a bottle of water left to be had anywhere in the city. If your local water treatment plant goes offline in a crisis, do you really want to have to cope with survival while in the midst of excruciating abdominal cramps, chronic vomiting, and crippling diarrhea? No, you don't. Now we have Fukushima. Its up to us, and we can do something about it! Whistleblower info: http://www.micarox.com/fukushima.htm This is where we come in. We have the best waters in the world to share with you, to offer hope. We have a variety of waters for various applications and some of these are concentrated so that a small ratio of these concentrates can be put into water to turn it crystal clear - clean for drinking and amazingly healthy for your body. If you wish to learn more about this, please contact the person that shared this video introduction with you, Messengers of the Light... Ohana, Burk-Elder: Hale, Third.
