Saturday, June 13, 2015 

Famed English actor, singer and author Sir Christopher Lee died last Sunday morning in London aged 93, after being admitted to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital for heart failure and respiratory problems. News of his death only became public on Thursday, as his wife of 54 years, Birgit Krøncke Lee, wished first to inform friends and family.

A spokesman for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea confirmed the issuing of his death certificate.

Lee first rose to prominence in the 1950s starring in Hammer Horror films as the classic movie monsters Dracula and Frankenstein and was more recently seen as Saruman the White in the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films as well as portraying the villainous Count Dooku in the Star Wars films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.

In 2010 Lee released a heavy metal album titled Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross followed by another metal album in 2013, Charlemagne: The Omens of Death and several collections of Heavy Metal cover songs including A Heavy Metal Christmas, A Heavy Metal Christmas Too and Metal Knight.

In 2008 Lee was knighted for services to drama and charity, and in 2001 received a Bafta Fellowship.

Lee is survived by his wife Birgit and daughter Christina.

Saturday, January 15, 2005 

Jeff Tweiten, a 27-year-old graphic artist, is encamped in front of the Cinerama Theatre, on a blue sofa, in the northwest city of Seattle, Washington. Tweiten plans to wait 139 days for the premiere of “Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith,” which opens May 19, 2005.

He has received help from a community of friends and local business people who have supplied changes of clothes, coffee, food, and a nearby restroom.

City authorities have chosen not to enforce vagrancy laws that would force Tweiten to move between the hours of 7AM and 9PM local time.

Tweiten also camped out for the previous two episodes of the Star Wars movies, “Episode I” and “Episode II”.

Smoke from massive warehouse fire in Buffalo, New York USA can be seen 40 miles away

Monday, May 14, 2007 

Buffalo, New York — A massive warehouse complex of at least 5 buildings caught on fire in Buffalo, New York on 111 Tonawanda Street, sending a plume of thick, jet black colored smoke into the air that could be seen as far away as 40 miles.

As of 6:40 a.m., the fire was under control, and firefighters were attempting to stop it from spreading, but could not get to the center of the fire because of severe amounts of debris. Later in the morning, the fire was extinguished.

“The fire is mostly under debris at this point. It’s under control, but it’s under some debris. We really can’t get to it. We’re just going to have to keep on pouring water on it so it doesn’t spread,” said Thomas Ashe, the fire chief for the North Buffalo based fire division who also added that at one point, at least 125 firefighters were on the scene battling the blaze. One suffered minor injures and was able to take himself to the hospital to seek medical attention.

Shortly after 8:00 p.m. as many as 3 explosions rocked the warehouse sending large mushroom clouds of thick black smoke into the air. After the third explosion, heat could be felt more than 100 feet away. The fire started in the front, one story building then quickly spread to three others, but fire fighters managed to stop the flames from spreading onto the 3 story building all the way at the back.

According to a Buffalo Police officer, who wished not to be named, the fire began at about 7:00 p.m. [Eastern time], starting as a one alarm fire. By 8:00 p.m., three fire companies were on the scene battling the blaze. Police also say that a smaller fire was reported in the same building on Saturday night, which caused little damage.

At the start of the fire, traffic was backed up nearly 4 miles on the 198 expressway going west toward the 190 Interstate and police had to shut down the Tonawanda street exit because the road is too close to the fire.

At one point, traffic on the 198 was moving so slow, at least a dozen people were seen getting out of their cars and walking down the expressway to watch the fire. That prompted as many as 10 police cars to be dispatched to the scene to force individuals back into their cars and close off one of the 2 lanes on the westbound side.

One woman, who wished not to be named as she is close to the owner of the warehouse, said the building is filled with “classic cars, forklifts, and money” and that owner “does not have insurance” coverage on the property. The building is not considered abandoned, but firefighters said that it is vacant.

Officials in Fort Erie, Ontario were also swamped with calls to fire departments when the wind blew the smoke over the Niagra River and into Canada.

It is not known what caused the fire, but a car is suspected to have caught on fire and there are reports from police and hazmat crews, that there were also large barrels of diesel fuel being stored in one building. Firefighters say the cause of the blaze is being treated as “suspicious.” The ATF is investigating the fire and will bring dogs in to search the debris.

Fires out at the Hertfordshire Oil Storage Terminal

Tuesday, December 13, 2005 

After two days, the 2005 Hertfordshire Oil Storage Terminal fire has finally been extinguished.

The fires began after a series of explosions early on the morning of 11 December 2005. The terminal, known locally as the Buncefield Depot, is an oil storage facility located near Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. These were some of the largest explosions ever to occur in the country and the incident has been described as the biggest of its kind in peacetime Europe.

The Hertfordshire Fire Service chief Roy Wilsher said: “There are still some small bund (concrete container) fires, but the tanks are out.”

Fire crews would remain at the scene over the next few days cooling the area to ensure fires did not break out again, he said.

A few residents are being allowed to return to their homes within an exclusion zone set up around the site.

FDA recalls foreign meat used in aid for victims of Hurricane Katrina

Monday, September 26, 2005 

The American Food and Drug Administration has recalled operational rations (MREs) donated by Britain to help survivors of Hurricane Katrina.

The Daily Mirror insinuated that the majority of the 400,000 rations donated by Britain, at a cost of millions of pounds, are set to be destroyed at a plant in Little Rock, Arkansas. The Washington Times reported, on September 23, 2005, that a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Agriculture confirmed that the food was being held at the facility but denied any plans to incinerate the rations donated by Britain.

Nevertheless, the move has infuriated aid workers who hasten to point out that “Under NATO, American soldiers are also entitled to eat such rations, yet the starving of the American South will see them go up in smoke because of FDA red tape madness.” One aid worker was quoted as saying that “the world’s richest nation couldn’t organize a piss-up in a brewery and lets Americans starve while they arrogantly observe petty regulations. Everyone is revolted by the chaotic shambles the US is making of this crisis. Guys from UNICEF are walking around spitting blood.”

An FDA spokesman said the rations had not been inspected but were automatically deemed “unfit for human consumption” due to Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE or colloquially “mad cow disease”) fears. He observed that 70 pallets of vegetarian MREs were inspected and approved on September 13th. Aid workers claim that, today, BSE is much more of a problem in the U.S. than in Britain.

Food donations from Spain and Italy are also being held by the FDA due to similar concern, as well as thousands of gallons of pear juice from Israel. Licensing regulations have also prevented foreign nations from sending doctors and other medical personnel.

Travel Andaluc A: The Best Beaches On The Costa Del Sol

Travel Andaluc a: The best Beaches on the Costa del Sol


Sonia Allende Garcia

If it happens to be your first time visiting the Costa del Sol in the South of Spain, you should prepare yourself for major choices when it comes to excursions, things to do and mostly when it comes to beaches. The Costa del Sol is located at the most southerly point of Spain. The beaches stretch across for miles and are seated on the coast line of the Mediterranean Sea.

All the locals have their own favourite list of what beaches they prefer to spend their time at. The following list happens to be my favourite as a local and of course harbours no disrespect to anyone else s personal preferences.

Cabopino Beach

This beach is a great location and nothing at all beats the prices. It is cheap to eat, and cheap to rent a bed for the day. Cabopino is a southern Spanish harbour located near Marbella. Keeping constant watch on the beach is an ancient Moorish watch tower and to the right of the tower is a natural park with sand dunes.

YouTube Preview Image

The parking is free and the beach is well sheltered by palm trees in case you wish to escape the heat. However, it is recommended you get there early to rent a beach bed for the day comes with an umbrella. If you like to live a little bit on the edge, you can walk a bit further down the beach and get naked with the rest of the nudist you find.

Tarifa and Punta Paloma Beach

This beach is a little ways off the Costa del Sol, but has to be mentioned because of its beauty and incredible array of water sports. In Tarifa you don t necessarily have to stick to one beach, in fact it is here where you can expect white sandy beaches with your choice of dipping in the Atlantic Ocean or Mediterranean Sea. Although a bit pricier, the views and the town itself are well worth putting Tarifa into your vacation itinerary.

Nikki Beach Mingling with the Rich and Famous

Before even contemplating visiting this beach, make sure you have enough money. Although exclusive and very expensive, I always recommend a visit at least once if you can. This is place where the rich and famous come to play and sport their cash. Although a bit intimidating for first time visitors, once you find a spot on one of their huge beachfront beds, you can rest easy as you are waited on hand and foot. The food at Nikki Beach is incredible and well worth the costs.

Nerja Beach

Only about an hour s drive from the Costa del Sol is a place where the Mediterranean views are what they should be. Here you will see an old white village overlooking the green and blue tropical colour of the beach. The costs here are incredibly cheap, even more so then directly on the coast. You will have plenty of choices when it comes to eating. The beach at Nerja is lined with Chiringuito s other-wise known as beach based fish restaurants.

If you re wondering how to get around to all these beaches, you can easily book online for a Malaga Airport transfer, or

Sightseeing transfers

through a shuttle service.

Tips To Avoid Rust Remove Rust From Metal And Car

By Markus Skupeika

It is practically impossible to keep iron from moisture and oxygen. Especially those living in humid region suffer a lot to protect their cars and metallic items from rust. And when rusting begins, it becomes a pain. Rust removal is a daunting task and requires extreme manual effort.

However, there is a good alternative! If you use organic rust remover, rust can be cleaned without having your fingers lifted. Spray based rust cleaners are quite easy to use and effective too. Remember the days of sandpaper; you needed to scrub the metal with sandpaper or something similar to remove rust and rust stains.

Natural cleaning products have definitely made life much simpler. However, prevention is always better than cure it is always good to protect your car or metals from rust from the beginning. Rusting weakens iron from inside. The paragraphs below describe different ways to avoid rust.

How to avoid rust Rust treatment:

Household metal items when left untouched for long catch molds. So pay special attention to the iron items that you are not using. Garden tools, lawnmower, pliers etc. are something you do not need everyday. And when you take them out of your tool box after a long pause, you see rust to have set in already. Long gap helped moisturizer and oxygen to react with iron and to form a series of hydrated iron oxide in peace.

Rust is a chemical product. It is a series of ferric oxide, ferrous oxide and water. It is reddish brown in color and a bit bulky. Since the same mass or iron increases in volume in rust, the product becomes porous and fragile. Rusty iron is weak and unable to withstand load.

When you touch rusty iron rusts slip into your hand in powdered form. And when clothes, upholstery, curtain or any other thing come into contact with rusty metal, they get stained as well. Rusty window siding, doors, pipes often leave ugly stains on the exterior walls of your home too.

Stains and look are different issue; rust becomes dangerous when it attacks machineries and automobiles. On rusting the performance of the instruments deteriorate and increase the risk of breakdown and accidents. After rust removal from metal, not only the products look good and start to shine, but their performance improves as well.

One effective way to avoid rust is to wrap susceptible items very tightly with waterproof or rustproof materials and then store them in a dry place. Make sure the items are cleaned properly before you wrap them; traces of moisture are enough to begin rusting.

So dry the things properly and make sure they remain dry in the store. You can use dehumidifier to maintain humidity of indoor environment. To keep your car or any other metal items from rust you need to maintain them properly. Waterproof emulsion is often painted over metal surface so that moisture, water and oxygen cannot access it. This is a good way to stop metal corrosion. However, you need to ensure that the emulsion does not react with iron chemically; otherwise the main purpose wont be served.
