Workers took apart the old structure of Beijing’s Sanyuan Bridge in a few hours. Then they brought an entire piece of concrete to bridge the gap and paved it over, reports Citylab.com.
To build the bridge, over 1300 tonnes of new surfacing material was used which save months of commotion and traffic woes. For the first time in Chinese workers tried out a new ‘integrated replacement method.’
When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. Based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam Mckay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.
“The EU is increasingly about war,” exclaimed the outspoken UKIP leader in 2013 in front of Francois Hollande and his European parliamentarian peers. Amid the collapse of the French economy and capital flight, Farage jabs at Hollande it is clearly “impossible for France and Germany to stay together inside the same economic and monetary union.” So on the basis that the country is bankrupt (as France’s employment minister has said), Farage asks rhetorically, “what do you do? Well, the old trick – launch a foreign military intervention.” He concludes ominously prophetically, “taking on fundamentalist, radical Islam in battle is something that will launch ourselves… on a decade of unending, unwinnable misery.”
Politics determine who has the power, not who has the truth.
The Russian Defense Ministry has released a video of cruise missile strikes on ISIL targets in Syria, launched over 1500 km away, from the Caspian Sea. Four missile carrier ships participated in the strikes.
Missile carrier ships deployed in the Caspian Sea launched 18 Kalibr-M cruise missiles, targeting 7 terrorist hubs in Raqqa, Idlib and Aleppo. All targets have been eliminated, according to the Russian MoD.
Four cruise missile carriers from the Caspian flotilla surface action group — the ‘Dagestan’, the ‘Uglich’, the ‘Veliky Ustyug’ and the ‘Grad Sviyazhsk’ — launched all 18 missiles, said the flotilla’s deputy commander, Captain 1st Rank Sergey Yekimov.
The clip – another Hollywood special shot in full HD – is a kind of mini-lecture series featuring three jihadist speakers. One is an intellectual-looking fellow who calmly makes his case against a serene looking oasis background, another is a raving, crazy-eyed militant who is inexplicably sitting in the driver’s seat of a pickup truck, and the third is a soldier flanked by two not-so-serious looking comrades speaking against a backdrop that features some shrubs and an armored vehicle manned by a couple of set extras and/or character actors.
As patently absurd as it was, it scared a lot of people and at least according to new “information” acquired in raids by French police this week, the militants were indeed intent on keeping at least one of the promises they made in the video – that is, staging more attacks on France, as Reuters reported on Wednesday that the cell raided in St-Denis planned to attack La Defense and the Quatre Temps.
The video described above was actually one of two released on the same day by Furat Media and indeed, ISIS’ video production team has been working overtime this week to capitalize on the frenzy around the Paris attacks.
Furat’s latest effort (out last night apparently) is another France montage but there’s a notable 30 second portion which depicts a man building a suicide belt, strapping it on, walking into a crowd, and hitting the switch.
There are still shots of New York (specifically Times Square) that flash throughout.
