"(Because of) central bank action... long yields are incredibly low... not just the lowest in living memory, but in all likelihood the lowest ever in human history as far as we can tell."

... Glenn Stevens, Governor Reserve Bank of Australia
Financial Review Weekly, April 28-29th 2015.

* Central Bank's manipulation of the global economy through unprecedented money printing now reaches critical mass as interest rates start turning negative! Where to from here?

"To call a person a 'dick' is a derogatory term... to describe them as an idiot or fool. The word 'complete' is used to convey the message that the person is, without exception, an idiot or fool - they are nothing less than a 'dick'."

... Danny Cloghan, Fair Work Commission,
AFR April 10th, 2015.

* A bookkeeper's appeal of unfair dismissal for describing her boss as "a complete dick" has been denied. She accidentally posted the email to her boss instead of a colleague. After realizing her mistake she quickly texted her boss... "Please delete without reading. I am so so sorry.XXX". She argued it was only "a light-hearted insult". Ouch!

"I have spoken of our time as a time of war, a Third World War... one in which we daily witness savage crimes, brutal massacres and senseless destruction.... so many of our brothers and sisters, on account of their faith in Christ or their ethnic origin, are publicly and ruthlessly put to death - decapitated, crucified, burned alive - or forced to leave their homeland."

... Pope Francis
AP April 12, 2015.

* The religious head of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics spoke during a mass marking the Centenary of the Armenian Genocide of 1.5 million christians in Turkey in 1915.

Suicidal Pilot Kills 150 in Alps Crash: ... Mar 24, 2015.

All 150 people on board a Germanwings Airbus A320 perished when the jet slammed into the French Alps at 700km/h.

The 27 year-old co-pilot locked the cockpit door after the captain went for a toilet break, then put the jet into a crash dive. He then over-rode the entry-keypad to deny the captain access and suppressed the cockpit's excessive speed alarms.

The captain's shouts can be heard on the voice recorder as he frantically tried to break down the door with a heavy metal object.

Investigator's found the co-pilot had a troubled history of mental illness and depression, and an eyesight problem that he had largely kept hidden from his current employer. His home computer revealed details of how to lock the captain from the cockpit.

900 Boat People Drown At Sea. ... April 19, 2015.

Over 900 migrants have drowned in one of the world's worst people-smuggling disasters when an overcrowded fishing vessel capsized.

People-smugglers had locked many of the dead below deck after the vessel left Libya for the Italian island of Lampedusa.

Malta's Prime Minister called upon the EU to address the chaos and lawlessness in Libya..."We have what is fast becoming a failed state on our doorsteps and criminal gangs are enjoying a hey day". Others are calling for some kind of co-ordinated military and naval effort to deal with the growing problem.

Last year more than 220,000 asylum seekers used this corridor into Europe. Current Italian government projections are warning this could rise to more than 500,000 this year.

Many are from countries under attack from Islamic terrorist groups and the fear has been raised that jihadists may be intermingling with refugees and slipping into Europe. People-smugglers charge from $1,000 to well over $25,000 and can make a $1 million from every boatload.

Gas Utility Fined $2bn over Blast. ... April 11, 2015.

Californian utility PG&E has been fined more than $2 billion over a huge gas pipeline blast in 2010 that killed 8 people and destroyed or damaged 160 homes.

San Bruno Mayor Jim Ruane said "This explosion was a preventable disaster".

California's Public Utilities Commission found PG&E had neglected to maintain its vast network of pipelines for decades and that the pipeline explosion was caused by faulty welding work dating back to the 1950s.

The company would also be forced to return $635 million collected from customers for line improvements that were never carried out or mismanaged.

Bad GPS May Have Caused Fiery Death: ... Mar 30, 2015.

Biggest Gem Heist Ever in Britain? ... April 11, 2015.

So far, the 3 thieves who cleaned out a safe-deposit-box vault in London's jewellery district over 3 nights of the Easter weekend seem to be in luck.

Not only were they lucky when an alarm went off in the building on the first night but police decided not to attend.

They're even more lucky that so far Scotland Yard's armed robbery Flying Squad seem to have no clue who carried out the daring heist.

Two weeks after the heist Scotland Yard have resorted to making an appeal to the "wives and girlfriends" of anyone who knows how to use heavy-duty drills... "We are keen to hear from wives or partners of anyone who has specialist knowledge or skills that use this sort of equipment. Were they away during the Easter bank holiday or have they been acting oddly since the burglary was carried out?"

Sherlock Holmes would not be impressed.

300 Girls Rescued from Nigerian Jihadis: ... April 28, 2015.

Nigerian troops have rescued nearly 300 women and girls from Islamic militant jihadis Boko Haram in the country's northeast Sambisa Forest.

The Islamic extremist group has carried out mass kidnappings of young women (especially christians). The women are then coerced to convert to Islam and subsequently forced to "marry" their captors, and to fight for Islam, or are used as sex slaves or human shields.
