Police in Waco, Texas said nine people were killed and 18 injured in a shootout between three rival biker gangs that broke out at a restaurant around noon on Sunday. Patrons and bystanders ran for safety, police said, as officers on the scene also opened fire.

A local television station, KWTX, reported that some customers and employees took shelter in the restaurant’s freezer. All those killed and injured were gang members, police said.

[...]

Swanton, who said there were “still bodies on the scene of the parking lot at Twin Peaks” and “bodies scattered throughout the parking lot of the next adjoining business”, also said: “In 34 years of law enforcement, this is the most violent crime scene I have ever been involved in. There is blood everywhere. We will probably approach the number of 100 weapons.”

Gauck: We share blame for Armenian 'genocide'

Both President Joachim Gauck and Bundestag (German parliament) president Norbert Lammert condemned the massacre of 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman forces a century ago as a "genocide", the first time Germany has officially used the term.

Gauck's speech at an event commemorating the centenary marked the first time that Berlin has officially used the word "genocide" to describe the killings in Armenia, and an unusually strong acknowledgement of the then German Empire's role. "In this case we Germans must come to terms with the past regarding our shared responsibility, possibly shared guilt, for the genocide against the Armenians," he said at the ecumenical service in Berlin.

[...]

Gauck said that the German empire, then allied with the Ottomans, deployed soldiers who took part in "planning and, in part, carrying out the deportations". German diplomats and observers who reported back to Berlin the atrocities they witnessed were "ignored" for fear of jeopardising relations with the Ottomans, he said.

[...] [T]he Nazis even banned an Austrian novel about the mass murders but that the book was read in Jewish ghettos in the 1930s "as a harbinger of what was to come for the Jews".

I need some help building my new PC

21 April 2015 - 05:52 AM

So, it’s that time again for me. If you’re wondering why I am not just upgrading my previous rig, that’s because I found someone whom I can sell it to for a reasonable price. As usual, I plan on buying the stuff here and my budget this time around is ca. $555 (520€).

Processor:
AMD FX-6300, 6 cores @ 3.5GHz
Mainboard:
MSI 970A-G43
Memory:
4GB Kingston ValueRAM PC3-10667U CL9 (I’ve already got a second one of those so I’ll have 8GB in total)
Graphics card:
Gigabyte Radeon R9 280 OC WindForce 3X, 3GB GDDR5
Power supply:
Corsair CX Series Modular CX500M, 500W
Case:
Aerocool V3X Advance Black Edition Midi-Tower

Is this okay? Is everything compatible? Are there better options for any of the parts? I primarily relied on this article for this first build.

Migrants’ bodies brought ashore as EU proposes doubling rescue effort

21 April 2015 - 05:32 AM

Reuters said:

The European Union proposed doubling the size of its Mediterranean search and rescue operations on Monday, as the first bodies were brought ashore of as many as 900 people feared killed in the deadliest known shipwreck of migrants trying to reach Europe.

Three other rescue operations were underway on Monday to save hundreds more migrants in peril on overloaded vessels making the journey from the north coast of Africa to Europe. Italian prosecutors also announced they had arrested 24 suspected migrant traffickers although it was not clear whether they had any connection with the latest disaster.

The mass deaths have caused shock in Europe, where a decision to scale back naval operations last year seems to have increased the risks for migrants without reducing their numbers.

"The situation in the Mediterranean is dramatic. It cannot continue like this," said European Council President Donald Tusk, calling an extraordinary summit of EU leaders for Thursday to plan how to stop human traffickers and boost rescue efforts.

The dead can thank those utter cunts in Brussels for that :| This “doubling” means fuck all, by the way, since the previous monthly budget was nine million which, during said scaling back, they cut down to three million and would now only increase to six million. Keep in mind that these costs are borne by all member countries so it’s really a ridiculously small amount to pay. Not that they even put that little up willingly. Those nine million were only granted after a similar maritime disaster in which over 300 people drowned.

Sooooo in summary, I guess human rights are only for Europeans and we can expect this measly increase in funding to be “scaled back” again in two years’ time, leaving private shipping companies to do this awful job on the side once more.
