There was a reluctance on the part of the British to accept the policy of Irish neutrality. After the German invasion of Norway in April 1940, Winston Churchill became the British Prime Minister. The fall of France in June 1940 brought the war close to Ireland, as German troops occupied the French coastline across the Celtic Sea.
The United Kingdom was now the only major impediment to Germany for a little more then a year. A major British concern was now whether Germany would invade Ireland. The British view was that the Irish Army was not powerful enough to resist an invasion for long enough for reinforcement from the UK, particularly with the IRA as a potential liability, and wished to be able to prevent this by stationing troops and ships within the Ireland. The U.K had just relinquished control of three main ports called the treaty ports back to Ireland in 1938, these were the ports of Lough Swilly in the north, Berehaven and Spike Island in the south. The return of these ports actually made Ireland Neutral, as otherwise having the British Navy within your ports kind of makes it to where you need to side with them. After the fall of France a British ambassador arrived to try and persuade Ireland to join the Allies, the terms were simple. Join the allies, and you get Northern Ireland. Valera refused this proposal as he more then likely guessed that creating a fully unified Ireland wasn't guaranteed. Ireland did give some very useful information to the Allies through-out the war however, and over 15,000 Irishmen volunteered into British Units. A large number of these were branded as traitors and deserters when they got home since some of them left the army to join the Allies. The facist elements in Ireland all but fanished within the first year of the war, and by 1943, the IRA barely existed. Through-out the war, neutrality was what the public wanted.
Plans were drawn up by both Germany and the U.K to invade and occupy Ireland, The Germany one was called Operati
The first written report of settlement of Iceland was from the Norwegians during the mid 9th century,. Some Sagas do make mention of Papars that had met the Norwegians as they landed and these were reported to have lived on the land since the mid 8th century. Papars were a group of Irish or Scottish monks referred to as the “Holy men of the north” by other Gaelic peoples. Some other sources claim these people to be monks from the Hiberno-Scottish missions however, little archeological evidence exists for either of these claims. Some cabins have been found in the Southern sections of the island that would collateral with these times but many agree that they were used as outposts only. Iceland was a commonwealth and a vassal under the Norwegian crown from the 10th century until the 13th and it was pretty much completely autonomous for most of it's existence when it came under union with the Norwegian crown.
Iceland had been under the control of two main powers during it's settled existence. Norway had control of the island for years while still a sovereign nation, When Norway was listed as a Danish Province in 1536 then the lands that were under Norwegian control were shifted to Danish control. Once Sweden gained Norway in the Treaty of Kiel in 1814, the previous Norwegian possessions were kept under Danish control. Iceland was given home rule in the 1860's and in 1918 Iceland was given independence from Denmark but was kept under personal union with the King of Denmark. On 9 April 1940, German forces launched Operation Weserübung, invading bo
Siberian Ginseng – Soviet researchers have reported that eleuthero extract has radioprotective abilities, and can be used therapeutically in conditions of acute and chronic radiation and sicknesses such as hemorrhaging, severe anemia, dizziness, nausea, vomiting , and headaches due to x-rays.
Panax Ginseng – Hemorrhage was a symptom of humans exposed to atomic radiations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Japanese research doctors found that “Panax ginseng prevented hemorrhaging tendency after x-irradiation.” Bone marrow death is one result of radiation damage to blood-forming tissues. It occurs ten to twenty days after exposure to high doses of radiation. Panax ginseng extract prevents bone marrow death and accelerates normalization of red and white blood cell counts in animal studies.
Gingko Biloba – According to Science News Daily, extracts of its leaves contain antioxidant compounds including glycosides and terpenoids known as ginkgolides and bilobalides. These compounds are thought to protect cells from damage by free radicals and other reactive oxidizing species found in the body. These are generated continuously by the body’s normal metabolism, and in excess in some diseases or after exposure to pollution or radiation. They damage proteins, DNA and other biomolecules and left unchecked can kill cells. Results suggest that ginko biloba extracts can neutralize the free-radicals and oxidizing agents produced in the cells by the radiation and so prevent them from undergoing apoptosis.
(*) Black & Green Tea – The polyphenol epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) derived from green tea protects animals from whole-body radiation, blocking lipid oxidation and prolonging life span. Several sources indicate that there were hundreds who survived Hiroshima at ground zero and the one thing they all had in common was drinking 20 cups of green tea per day.

The Museo Atlantico is the first underwater art museum in Europe. It aims to create a large artificial reef formed by sculptures made with neutral pH concrete that will in time increase its biomass.
The fasilities include the work of Jason deCaires Taylor, highlighting the bond between art and nature allowing visitors to become aware of the importance of the sea and all natural resources.
2% of the income generated by the museum will go to sea protection and preservation projects.
The Museo Atlantico will be completed in 2017.
The museum currently has six different areas with contemporary areas.
Los Jolateros A group of children on brass crafts called "jolateros" being used as a metaphor for the precarious possible future of our children.

El Rubicon 35 human figures heading in the same direction. All the sculptures are base don local residents of Lanzarote.
Hybrids Merging nature and humanity living in harmony. These sculptures are half human and half cactus.

The internet is under attack by huge telecoms like AT&T. Americans are fighting back, but does DC care? Or are they going to sell out the internet regardless?
Musicians like Moby care because your ability to download and listen to music from iTunes and videos from the internet could be in jeopardy. The only way to save the internet from these big companies is through net neutrality.
Coca-Cola has announced plans to go totally water neutral.
This PBS special is officially called, "The Net At Risk" and it's part of the Bill Moyers series, "Moyers on America".
An excerpt from the Moyers on America/Net At Risk site:
"The debate is hot, the language heady, the metaphors many. Op-ed pages alternately bemoan "The End of the Internet" or curse "Net Neutrality Nonsense." Allegations fly about the stifling of free speech, the holding back of progress and corporate hegemony. Indeed, network neutrality has become something of a cause celebre in the digital world, pitting a slew of high-profile Internet content providers and consumer-advocacy groups against major phone and cable companies, and federal lawmakers against each other.
But what exactly is net neutrality, and why does it seem to have everyone from Google and Yahoo! to Verizon and AT&T concerned? In a nutshell, the issue involves the transmission of data over broadband networks (e.g. DSL or cable internet services). As the number of sites on the Internet continues to grow and the quality of data becomes more sophisticated-encompassing video and audio files and other multimedia applications-broadband service providers (generally cable and phone companies) are seeking to regulate how material flows to users through their increasingly taxed networks. For most large providers, this has come down to one general desire: They could establish a tiered system of content delivery in which companies with data-heavy content can pay a fee to the providers in return for "special treatment" in transmission. An analogy: For those companies that pay the fee, their content would breeze through the fast-pass lane at the toll bridge, reaching users more quickly; those who don't pay will be stuck in the crowded, slow-moving line, and users will have to wait longer for their content to load."
