Saint-Angelina?

Along with being a mother, an actress, and a Saint - Angelina Jolie is now a writer. Oh yes. Jolie was asked to write an article for The Economist for their The World 2008 spin-off issue where the publication makes predictions for the next coming year. Jolie will have a picture and byline to accompany her piece, which describes her as the goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. (It did not mention that she gets to shag Brad Pitt whenever she wants.) Surely, it's The Economist’s way of pretending they didn’t use an actress to write about one of the greatest genocides of our time. According to The Guardian, her article will cover, "accountability for the atrocities in Darfur sits alongside contributions from several presidents, an exiled god-king, the head of the United Nations and other political heavyweights".

As for today's other news, Brad and Angie have reportedly purchased a man-made island off the coast of Dubai in the shape of Ethiopia and intend to "intend to use the reclaimed piece of land to showcase environmental issues and encourage people to live a greener life." Because it's so smart and so green to give a country based on oil profits $30 million for a freaking island that’s going to get blown up when Dumbya gets around to invading Iran and the straits get blocked.

Oh, and lastly (or rather ghastly) guess who stars in the upcoming Beowulf adaptation? If you were a cynic, you might think there is no better way to promote a new movie than appearing in The Economist’s The World in 2008, at least for Saint-Angelina. This spin-off issue of The Economist is out today, selling at £4.95, and also features pieces by Nancy Pelosi, the Dalai Lama, and Michael Bloomberg. Get your copy from Odeon, sorry, Amazon.

High Commissioner and Angelina Jolie to receive IRC Freedom Award
06 Nov 2007
Source: UNHCR

High Commissioner António Guterres will be in New York tomorrow, where he and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie are to receive the International Rescue Committee's annual Freedom Award for 2007. The International Rescue Committee first bestowed the Freedom Award for extraordinary contributions to the cause of refugees and human freedom to Willy Brandt in 1957. Other IRC Freedom Award winners include Winston Churchill (1958); George Soros (1993); Daw Aung San Suu Kyi (1995); Sadako Ogata (1995); Vaclav Havel (2003); and former Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton (2006). The IRC has for many years been UNHCR's largest NGO partner.

On 25 January 2011, widespread protests began against Mubarak's regime. The objective of the protest was the removal of Mubarak from power. These took the form of an intensive campaign of civil resistance supported by a very large number of people and mainly consisting of continuous mass demonstrations. By 29 January it was becoming clear that Mubarak's regime had lost control when a curfew order was ignored, and the army took a semi-neutral stance on enforcing the curfew decree. Some protesters, a very small minority in Cairo, expressed nationalistic views against what they deemed was foreign interference, highlighted by the then-held view that the U.S. administration had failed to take sides, as well as linking the regime with Israel

Nevertheless, due to the aridity of Egypt's climate, population centres are concentrated along the narrow Nile Valley and Delta, meaning that about 99% of the population uses only about 5.5% of the total land area.[50] Egypt is bordered by Libya to the west, Sudan to the south, and by the Gaza Strip and Israel to the east. Egypt's important role in geopolitics stems from its strategic position: a transcontinental nation, it possesses a land bridge (the Isthmus of Suez) between Africa and Asia, traversed by a navigable waterway (the Suez Canal) that connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Indian Ocean by way of the Red Sea.

In 2007, Amnesty International released a report criticizing Egypt for torture and illegal detention. The report alleges that Egypt has become an international center for torture, where other nations send suspects for interrogation, often as part of the War on Terror. The report calls on Egypt to bring its anti-terrorism laws into accordance with international human rights statutes and on other nations to stop sending their detainees to Egypt.[78] Egypt's foreign ministry quickly issued a rebuttal to this report, claiming that it was inaccurate and unfair, as well as causing deep offense.

Monarchs have various titles — king or queen, prince or princess (e.g. Sovereign Prince of Monaco), Malik or Malikah (e.g. Maliks of Middle eastern Mamlakahs), emperor or empress (e.g. Emperor of Japan, Emperor of India), Shah of Iran, archduke, duke or grand duke (e.g. Grand Duke of Luxembourg). Prince is sometimes used as a generic term to describe any monarch regardless of title, especially in older texts.

Monarchies have existed throughout the world, although in recent centuries many states have abolished the monarchy and become republics. Advocacy of republics is called republicanism, while advocacy of monarchies is called monarchism. The principal advantage of hereditary monarchy is the immediate continuity of leadership, with a usually short interregnum (as illustrated in the classic phrase "The [old] King is dead. Long live the [new] King!"). However, this only applies in the case of autocratic rule. In cases where the monarch serves mostly as a ceremonial figure (e.g. most modern constitutional monarchies) real leadership does not depend on the monarch.

The Quasi-Salic succession provided firstly for male members of the family to succeed, and secondarily males descended from female lines. In most feudal fiefs, females (such as daughters and sisters) were allowed to succeed, should the male line fail, but usually the husband of the heiress became the real lord and most often also received the title, jure uxoris. Great Britain and Spain today continue this model of succession law, in the form of cognatic primogeniture. In more complex medieval cases, the sometimes conflicting principles of proximity and primogeniture battled, and outcomes were often idiosyncratic.

The XF-85 was carried in a stowed position, but was sometimes tethered and extended into the airstream with the engine off, for the pilot to gain some feel for the aircraft in flight

The existence of two different filename extensions for naming audio-only MP4 files has been a source of confusion among users and multimedia playback software. Some file managers, such as Windows Explorer, look up the media type and associated applications of a file based on its filename extension. But since MPEG-4 Part 14 is a container format, MPEG-4 files may contain any number of audio, video, and even subtitle streams, making it impossible to determine the type of streams in an MPEG-4 file based on its filename extension alone.

MPEG-2 was used by many studios (including Paramount Pictures, which initially used the VC-1 format for HD DVD releases) for the first series of Blu-ray Discs, which were launched throughout 2006.[98] Modern releases are now often encoded in either MPEG-4 AVC or VC-1, allowing film studios to place all content on one disc, reducing costs and improving ease of use. Using these formats also frees a lot of space for storage of bonus content in HD (1080i/p)

For example, the music for the announcement trailer was recorded with a 60-piece orchestra and a 24-piece choir.[36] Halo 3 is the first game in the series to feature custom soundtracks, allowing players to replace in-game music with their own choices.[54] The Halo 3 Original Soundtrack was released on November 20, 2007.

The obverse of Saint-Gaudens's final design shows a female figure of Liberty, who also represents victory. Saint-Gaudens based his design on the female figure he had designed in creating New York City's monument to General William Tecumseh Sherman,but the sculptor's ultimate inspiration was the Nike of Samothrace.The figure for the Sherman monument was modeled by Henrietta Anderson, one of the artist's favorite subjects.On the coin, Liberty holds a torch in one hand, representing enlightenment; an olive branch in the other, a symbol of peace.She strides across a rocky outcrop; behind her are the United States Capitol and the rays of the sun. The figure is surrounded by 46 stars, one for each of the states in 1907.
