The Working Summer!

This summer has turned out to be a good summer for work, however, most of it private stuff I am not really at liberty to post on this site! I am looking forward to doing some travel in the near future and getting some new pics up on the site. For now I am going to default to my collection of random amazing photography for some interesting material. Today's theme is accidents! I hope you enjoy and I look forward to putting some new material up soon!

Interesting Photos of the Day!!!

Due to some type of horse flu, I've been out of commission for the past week. I finally managed to stay conscious for more than a few minutes and decided to share with you some of my photo collection. These are from different photographers at different times. The first and last photos are credited, however, I dont have the names of the middle three to give them credit. If anyone knows who took these, please leave me a comment so these amazing photographers can get some credit.

Since I have been reading the Bob Woodward series of Bush at War, I decided to find photos from the conflict zone. I hope you enjoy!!!

Global Arms Trade Treaty

I should mention that I am a proud supporter of the second amendment and the owner of many guns. I believe that everyone has the right to defend themselves and their loved ones. I do support this global arms trade treaty, however, continuing to supply governments with weapons and munitions when they are blatantly violating international law, including human rights and humanitarian law, happens all to often.

Despite the suffering and poverty fuelled by irresponsible arms transfers, there is still no comprehensive, binding international treaty on the trade in conventional arms.

Check out the link at Controlarms.org

Amnesty International has a QVC spoof video which is quite hilarious and sobering.



Since 2003, the Control Arms Campaign has been calling for a strong and effective Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), a legally binding international instrument, which will draw together and consolidate states’ current obligations under international law. If properly implemented, such an ATT would reduce the human cost associated with the proliferation of conventional arms. It would prevent unscrupulous arms suppliers finding the weakest point in the supply chain, and ensure that all arms exporters and importers are abiding by the same high standards regarding the use, management and transfer of arms, leading to a more secure world.

The idea of a global ATT was inspired by Nobel Peace Laureates and developed by lawyers, human rights organisations, and humanitarian NGOs. It now enjoys the support of a growing number of governments (153 States), as well as more than 800 civil society organisations worldwide

What does the organization want?

We want a global ATT based on our “5 Golden Rules” to help stop those international transfers of conventional arms that are likely to be used for serious human rights violations, and fuel conflict and poverty:

States shall not authorise international transfers of conventional arms or ammunition where they will:

(i) be used or are likely to be used for gross violations of international human rights law or serious violations of international humanitarian law.

(ii) have an impact that would clearly undermine sustainable development or involve corrupt practices;

(iii) provoke or exacerbate armed conflict in violation of their obligations under the UN Charter and existing treaties.

(iv) contribute to an existing pattern of violent crime.

(v) risk being diverted for one of the above outcomes or for acts of terrorism.

More Herons!!!

It's been a while since I've added anything, and these photos are about a week old, but they are the Heron shots that I promised. I'll have shots from Julia Massey at the Showbox in a day or so. For anyone interested in chess, check out the ICC at www.chess.fm for some awesome commentary on the Amber Rapid tournament taking place (almost over actually) in Nice, France.
