    A specific tribunal during the Hague sentenced former Liberian President Charles Taylor to many years in prison Wednesday for war crimes and crimes towards humanity in neighboring Sierra Leone.

    The Exclusive Court for Sierra Leone stated Taylor utilized his position to help and abet rebels as an alternative to to promote peace and stability. Presiding decide Richard Lussick said Taylor was responsible for ldquoaiding and abetting several of the most heinous and brutal crimes in recorded history.rdquo

    Last month, the court convicted the yearold Taylor on all counts of an indictment that included fees of murder, rape, sexual slavery, recruitment of youngster soldiers and enslavement.

    The court found that Taylor did not have mand and control of rebels who carried out abuses during Sierra Leones civil war, but was aware of their activities and offered them with weapons and encouragement in exchange for socalled ldquoblood diamondsrdquo mined in eastern Sierra Leone.

    Taylors legal crew indicated it might appeal the verdict.

    Hundreds of individuals turned out at a courthouse in Sierra Leones capital, Freetown, to watch Taylors sentencing broadcast live from the Hague.

    Sierra Leones authorities stated ldquojustice continues to be accomplished,rdquo saying the year prison sentence was wele news for victims who may possibly now uncover some relief.

    Some Sierra Leonians expressed disappointment together with the sentence, saying it was as well short, while others said

    they believed the sentence was as well harsh.

    But the former chief prosecutor for your Distinctive Court for Sierra Leone, David Crane, referred to as Taylors sentence ldquoappropriate.rdquo

    He informed VOA the verdict represents the ldquoend of an erardquo for the man who performed a central function in atrocities that destroyed lives in Sierra Leone.

    Rights groups also hailed the sentence. Human Rights View explained it signaled the world is being ldquoincreasingly intolerant of leaders who exploit their positionsrdquo to mit crimes.

    Londonbased Amnesty Global named the sentencing a ldquomilestone,rdquo but added it was ldquoonly 1 step toward justice.rdquo The group mentioned victims of crimes orchestrated by Taylor had a appropriate to seek out reparations and to see all of individuals linked on the atrocities prosecuted.

    Taylor will be the initially head of state to be convicted by an global court because the Nuremberg Nazi trials in .

     The protein eater. 

    For all the positives of Rinellas ethos , In his Show meateater he seems concerned about the amount of Bear fat the he eats in the context of heart disease . Quote " Don’t tell me cardiologist" as he eats a peice of black bear meat deep fried in the bear’s own fat. 

     

    So while his  desire and abiltiy to hunt are strong , his nutritional ethos is still locked in conventional dietary advise. 

  4.  Wow I was really happy with this guys response to eating meat. I thought he was humble and kind in his approach. The truth is  even vegans are killing life. All life has soul and we end life no matter what we eat. Unless it’s cardboard or something! 

    We’ve had frutarians and primal people on our shows and it’s important to give everybody a voice so we can ALL stop eating processed food!

    Where has all the love gone that you once felt for your partner? Do you seem to fight about everything? Has your partner become your enemy? How did it happen?
    These are common questions I address time and time again in my private practice. The process of ‘building a case against our partner’ begins quietly and unconsciously, so we hardly notice what we’re doing. The emotional battle often begins after the honeymoon phase of a relationship and reality has set in. Suddenly the one who could do no wrong, can’t seem to do anything right. The one who used to make us happy is slowly becoming the enemy’someone to defend against and distrust. We’re certain they’re doing things just to annoy us and make us angry. We retaliate by doing things to them that get the same result. Slowly we have forgotten that we love our partner and now wonder what to do.
    One of the most important things to do to begin to regain the love you once had for your partner is to start giving them the benefit of the doubt, like you would a friend or even a stranger. In order to do this, remember these three things:
    1. Step out of yourself and listen to your partner. What is she/he really saying if you weren’t already expecting the worst and waiting to defend yourself?
    Example: Your partner is upset that you’ve come home late and says, ‘Here we go again, you’re late for dinner and you didn’t even call me.’ Your first reaction is to defend yourself with excuses of why you’re late. Instead, just listen to your partner’when we’re busy talking, we don’t really hear what our partner is trying to communicate. You may see that your partner is simply trying to tell you that she/he’s hurt, and not that you’re a bad person. By holding back your defenses and addressing your partner’s upset, a conversation can ensue rather than a defensive arguing match. In this situation, apologizing for being late, listening, and seeing the situation from your partner’s point of view would dramatically alter the dynamics of the situation.
    2. Don’t take everything your partner says PERSONALLY. In other words, don’t just react impulsively from JUST your emotions. Let your head help you to think about the situation and what’s been said, rather than assuming your partner is trying to hurt you. To help you NOT just react from emotions (taking a remark as a personal attack), try asking yourself these simple questions: How might I respond to my partner if I did not take what she/he is saying personally? What if what she/he is saying ISN’T about me? If this was true, would I hear her/him differently? Would I respond differently?
    Example: Your partner’s had a hard day and has been unable to talk to anyone about it. Then you walk in and start talking about your day. All of a sudden your partner is angry that you never listen. If you take a minute to THINK about the situation, without immediately reacting, you may realize that your partner did have a hard day and needs to be HEARD, not necessarily that you NEVER listen. By not reacting to your own hurt, you might be able to be there for your partner’and then they’re more likely to be there for you. Again, a potential argument could transform into an intimate conversation.
    3. What if I didn’t see my partner as my enemy? How would I respond if I still loved/liked my partner? How did I respond in the beginning of our relationship?
    Do you want to be right or do you want a resolution for the argument? Do you want a healthy relationship? The healthiest relationships are the ones where both people can be right and have the opportunity to express their feelings and be heard. It only takes one person to change the pattern of the relationship. Be that person. Stop attacking and putting your partner on the defensive. Begin with an act of kindness to yourself and your partner by giving them the benefit of the doubt. By doing so, you begin to change the pattern of your relationship from negative to positive, from attacking to understanding, from fighting to intimacy, from enemy to friend, lover, and partner. One act of kindness goes a long way, leading to a different and healthier way of communicating.

    Kiwi expertise muscling out our coaches

    That was the very first time Irish rugby people encountered the now standard warm-up routines of players grouping in four corners and conducting a series of criss-crossing drills — finished at high speed with immediate punishments for just about any dropped balls, of which there were few.

    Annually later, the All-Ireland League got going and Irish clubs, dazzled through the new dawn, began courting travel-itching rugby men from Nz.

    Brent Anderson, Brent Pope and Dean Oswald were early successes, followed by the kind of Sean McCahill (brother of 1989 An all-black costume Bernie), Andy Ward, Rhys Ellison, Mike Mullins and Jason Holland.

    Coaches also began to drift over, lured by tales of intense but manageable rugby and enthusiastic, generous benefactors. Andy Leslie and Murray Kidd enjoyed AIL success with Garryowen, with Kidd progressing towards the position of Irish national coach. And then, obviously, there was Warren Gatland, the Grand Slam-winning and soon-to-be Lions coach who got into his stride with Galwegians, Connacht and Ireland.

    Through the turn of the century, the balance of power had swung Australia’s way, because it was the Wallabies who have been setting world trends after their scientifically successful 1999 World Cup triumph.

    Matt Williams, Alan Gaffney, Jim Williams, Michael Cheika and Tony McGahan all forged successful careers using the provinces before getting to bigger and better gigs.

    However, coinciding with the All Blacks ending their wait for a second World Cup title last year, the provinces are dancing to some Kiwi beat once again.

    Joe Schmidt, Jono Gibbes and Greg Feek have been successfully installed with Leinster within the last couple of years, with Mark Anscombe and Rob Penney going to be embraced by Ulster and Munster respectively.

    Which enhances the question: why is Ireland not bringing through its own coaches in to the system? They’re available.

    Eddie O’Sullivan is still searching for suitable employment to meet his previous achievements, while Michael Bradley, Conor O’Shea and Mark McCall have done well overseas.

    But, now that Ulster are relegating Brian McLaughlin to a background position and Anthony Foley’s been overlooked for Penney, Connacht’s Eric Elwood may be the only frontline Irish provincial coach.

    The succession issue is complicated with a financial climate which mitigates against talented amateur AIL coaches making the jump to the professional game when the likes of Peter Smyth, Brian Walsh and David O’Mahony all look capable of making the step-up.

    So, there is an element of ‘needs must’ and it is less although the overseas coaches have been failures. Cheika and Schmidt have brought Leinster to the summit of Europe, while Gaffney, McGahan and also the two Williams made worthwhile contributions within their time.

    It could also be argued that the willingness to consider a punt on relative unknowns or unproven overseas coaches at the very top level is not as readily replicated with indigenous alternatives.

    However, despite the three-from-four situation pick up, you will find positive indications the reliance on overseas experience might be reduced within the next few years — as it should.

    Foley has all the qualities to become a great head coach, while there are a clutch of players of comparable vintage who could follow his lead. Using the likes of Brian O’Driscoll, Paul O’Connell and Ronan O’Gara in a coaching capacity would appear an unavoidable step when their playing careers cease.

    Toss in the likes of Young Munster coach and Munster ‘A’ assistant Mike Prendergast, Ulster’s back-room pair of Neil Doak and Jonny Bell, as well as the Wild Geese contingent employed in England and France, and also the future of Irish coaching actually looks very promising.

    Irish rugby has leaned heavily and productively on Nz experience for the bones of 20 years and will continue to do so within the short-to-mid-term (with Penney looking a smart acquisition).

    However this relationship ought to be seen as a means to a finish for parties and, hopefully, it won’t be long before the majority of senior Irish coaching positions are in Irish hands.
