US, GLOBAL MARKETS FALL AS SHUTDOWN LOOMS! U.S. markets are having a bad case of the Monday blues, thanks to Washington.
All three major indices opened to a rocky start, as investors brace for a likely government shutdown.

According to Washington post, the Dow Jones industrial average was down 0.8 percent in the first hour of trading. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index was down 0.7 percent, as was the Nasdaq tech index.
Global stocks also fell in response to U.S. political gridlock. Germany’s DAX index was down more than 1 percent, while London’s FTSE 100 index was down 0.8 percent at 10:30 a.m. Eastern.

“I think markets had been assuming there wouldn’t be a shutdown, that it would be too costly for the Republicans,” said Paul Edelstein, director of financial economics at IHS Global Insight. “It looks like they were wrong.”

Lawmakers in Washington are gathered on the Hill to discuss budget measures that would keep the government open, but little is expected to come of th…

MIRACLE DRUG CURE DISCOVERED FOR SKIN CANCER! SCIENTISTS have found a cure for skin cancer. The breakthrough drug cured one in six sufferers treated for cancer [PA] Finally the deal is done for skin cancer. The treatment was having “spectacular” effects on patients and could be used for other types of cancer. Around one in six sufferers were being cured by the drugs, which boost the immune system. Each year almost 13,000 people in Britain are diagnosed with a type of cancer called melanoma. It kills 2,200 a year, accounting for 80% of skin cancer deaths. The number of cases has ­quadrupled in 30 years partly due to sunbathing. But Prof Alexander Eggermont, of the Gustave Roussy research centre, in Paris, said: “Advanced melanoma could become a curable disease for perhaps more than 50% of patients within five to 10 years. “If I’d made this bizarre prediction five years ago, people would have said I was mad.” If spotted early, lethal moles can be cut out before the cancer spreads. But if…

Sol Campbell believes he should move abroad to coach as he said there are no oppportunities for black coaches in the UK [ACTION IMAGES] The Arsenal legend claims there are no jobs here due to a racist attitude towards black coaches. He claims football chiefs will not give black people a shot at the big time because of their “archaic” outlook. The defender also blasted the Football Association for abandoning him and snubbing him for a coaching role. Campbell, 39, who is studying for his coaching badges, said: “I want to start abroad. There are no opportunities for me here – not until attitudes change. “We have to ask why there aren’t more black managers and why the likes of Brian Deane (who is working in Norway) need to go abroad to get a chance.

Is £16billion cash stash left at Russian airport for six years Saddam Hussein's secret fortune? A stash of £16.75billion in cash that could be Saddam Hussein’s secret fortune has sat unclaimed at a Russian airport since 2007.
The 20 billion euros, all in 100 euro notes, is being stored at a heavily guarded depot.
It was flown to Moscow’s ­Sheremetyevo Airport from Frankfurt with no recipient.
“It is possible this is the money of Saddam Hussein,” a source said.
But why the late Iraqi dictator’s ill-gotten gains would emerge in Russia is a mystery. A security source said it could also be mafia or corrupt officials’  dirty money and added: “There are other possibilities, what about Muammar Gaddafi?”
Documents name Farzin Motlagh, 45, as the sender but he has not claimed the cash.
The Iranian is reportedly wanted internationally on suspicion of fraud.

Three times the fun: Ian and Karen with their girls

Here is three identical little bundles of joy – who beat odds of 200 million to one to even be conceived.
Ffion, Maddison and Paige Gilbert were formed when a single egg split into three, an extremely rare occurrence.
And they arrived safely despite doctors warning parents Karen and Ian the unborn tots could steal fluid off each other in the cramped space they shared, killing one or more of them.
The determined pair twice rejected pleas to terminate their girls. The trio are now home after spending six weeks in hospital. Medics had said they could be there for up to three months.CatersCatersDelighted Karen, 32, said: “I still feel like someone’s going to tell me I’ve had my time with them now and take them away.
“At first we thought it was one, but at eight weeks I got bad pains. We thought it was a miscarriage but it was three babies fighting for space.…
US NEAR SHUTDOWN AS HOUSE VOTES TO DELAY OBAMACARE!  WASHINGTON—The U.S. government moved to within hours of its first shutdown since 1996, as House Republicans redoubled their drive early Sunday to delay the new health care law and Senate Democrats stood firm against changing the law as a condition of funding federal departments. On a 231-192 vote, the House early Sunday passed a one-year delay of the health law, often called Obamacare, and attached it to a plan to fund the government through Dec. 15. The legislation now goes to the Senate. It also includes a provision repealing a tax on medical devices intended to help finance the health law, which the House approved on a 248-174 vote.The standoff left little prospect that Congress could reach agreement on terms for funding the government by midnight Monday, when the current fiscal year expires. A shutdown would leave essential services operating but prompt federal agencies to suspend many functions and furlough hundreds of thousands…
ITALIAN MINISTERS' RESIGNATION SPARKS GOVERNMENT CRISIS!ROME—All five center-right ministers of former premier Silvio Berlusconi's party resigned Saturday from the coalition led by Prime Minister Enrico Letta, throwing the government into chaos as the euro zone's third-largest economy struggles to exit its worst recession in decades. WSJ has it that the move by Mr. Berlusconi to pull support for the Letta government marks the culmination of a week of fast-rising tensions between the media mogul's People of Freedom Party and Mr. Letta's left-leaning Democratic Party. It leaves Italian President Giorgio Napolitano with the difficult choice between forcing the formation of a new government and sending Italians back to the polls just seven months after inconclusive elections produced a hung parliament.

GIRL REACTS TO THE RESULT OF A SURVEY OF WORST CITIES TO LIVE IN THE UNITED KINGDOM! A recent survey asked 25,000 people in the UK about their views of the town or city in which they lived. As a representation of the worst and best places in which to live, a happiness index to attach to each town. Individual areas of London came out as the worst places for people to live, based on the happiness of the inhabitants, although Oldham in the greater Manchester area managed to make it in at number six. www.ehow.co.uk.READ THE FULL TEXT OF HER REACTION! I love the way that people improperly use the term 'ethnics' on this page to refer to non white people living in the UK. Everyone belongs to an 'ethnicity', so in reality, we are all 'ethnics'. This article is misleading, since when did the entirety of East and South East London become towns or cities? How on earth did economically deprived areas of the north of England like Middelsborough, Hull, Doncaster, ect - where o…

USA: NSA SAID TO BE STUDYING SOME AMERICAN'S SOCIAL CONNECTIONS USING E-MAILS AND CALLS DATA!


The National Security Agency has been mining for several years its massive collections of e-mail and phone call data to create extensive graphs of some Americans’ social connections that can include associates, travel companions and their locations, according to the New York Times. The social graphing began in 2010 after the NSA lifted restrictions on the practice, according to an internal January 2011 memorandum, the Times reported online Saturday. It based its article on documents obtained by former NSA contractor Edward J. Snowdenand interviews with officials.
