Roger Stone: NFL Corruption Redux?

nfl

The NFL is facing another crisis with players injuries becoming more public.

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Roger Stone, an advisor to President Trump and political guru, posted on his website, StoneColdTruth.com, a call for the NFL to address players injuries.

As the Super Bowl approaches, and the mainstream media is flooded with promotional spots put out by the NFL, we can’t but help feel that this year is different. It is obvious that the sport is in a declining state, using viewership and attendance numbers alone to tell the tale. What hasn’t been so obvious is the reason why the NFL and their chairman Roger Goodell, are letting this happen.

I say letting this happen, because the wounds upon the NFL are surely self-inflicted. What was supposed to be an a-political popular sport has turned into a partisan slugfest with all the trappings of an orchestrated operation designed to create political divisions. Normally, when viewing such activity, it would be prudent to assume dirty tricks being played to distract from an unfolding narrative that ran counter to the orchestrator’s best interests. Here at Stone Cold Truth, that’s what we first thought was going on, put into play by the Left to distract from the trove of scandals being uncovered today in Washington, D.C. After our research, we’ve amended our position.

Before we continue let it be said that we simply love the sport of football. We’ve watched it in our youth, played it amongst friends, and have been lifelong fans. To be sure, we who put this story together are saddened by making this report. It is our profound hope that the NFL will make a course correction, right the ship, and carry on with smooth sailing, restoring our National Pastime to former glory.

Now on with the report.

Roger Goodell is no stranger to politics. His father, Charles Goodell was a Republican U.S. Representative and then later a Senator from the State of New York. As such, Roger Goodell has been ‘plugged in’ from almost the time he could speak.

Many don’t know that it was Charles Goodell who was hand selected by then New York Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller to replace the just assassinated Robert F. Kennedy. Charles was the youngest Republican Senator of his day. As a serious researcher of the Kennedy family along with the various conspiracies swirling around them, and as a top author on the subject, many longtime followers will know that little credence in placed in the official narratives released at the time of these events.

Even though Charles Goodell was a registered Republican, hand selected by the same, his views stilted more to the left. In fact, the primary reason why he lost his Senate seat in 1970 was because he introduced a bill to cut off funding to the Vietnam war. At the end, Spiro T. Agnew, then Vice President to President Richard Nixon, publicly disavowed Charles Goodell, calling him a “Radical Liberal”.

With this historical perspective to provide context, there were these nagging little details about the NFL Social Justice narrative that caused us to revisit it, a metaphorical check-under-the-hood if you will. In our January 18th, 2018 piece on InfoWars War Room with Owen Shroyer, we first discussed our initial findings, and they weren’t pretty.

Information regarding the NFL Concussion Settlement had been pointed out to us around January 15th. Our source was anonymous, but the tip was sound. The basis of the tip was the recently released statistics from the official NFL website www.nflconcussionsettlement.com. The statistics show that after four years of legal fighting, and over a year of time since a supposed settlement was reached, only a tiny fraction of the players have been paid for their lifelong traumatic injuries. We, like many of you, were not fully aware of this monumental lawsuit and resulting settlement, but a well-trained political nose can always smell a rat. When we saw these statistics, everything just snapped into place for us. It became, and still is, our opinion that the reason why Goodell is allowing the NFL to commit seppuku on the knife of social justice, is to distract from the fact that they are not honoring the settlement payout agreement. Using a lessor negative to cover for a greater negative is indeed a trick out of the Book of Political Dirty Tricks. Why is the Concussion Settlement a greater negative? Because it shows clearly that the sport of football, as played today, is destroying the lives of the players and that of their families too. Is it still as entertaining to watch teams slam into each other on the scrimmage line knowing that most of them will be permanently scarred from it? Not for us it isn’t.

We concluded the report by vowing to dig deeper into the nitty gritty of this story, and what we uncovered shocked us. Seeing what we’ve seen over the years, and being as jaded as we are, shocking us is not easy to do.

When we start going through some of the statistics, it is import to consider that for every number you see, there is an entire support network of family and friends who are affected by these grave series of events.

The NFL’s handling of the traumatic head injuries lawsuit settlement has left thousands upon thousands of former professional football players in dire straits. Many of the former players were and are still suffering from a variety of severe ailments like Early Onset Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, and other Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) symptoms.

The billion dollars “NFL Concussion Settlement”, a disingenuous name assigned by the NFL themselves, was supposed to be an all-encompassing uncapped solution for the players and the NFL in response to the multiple lawsuits directed at the NFL by the players and their representatives. It took four years of fighting to reach the effective date of January 7, 2017. The injured players, an overwhelming number of whom are African-American, were relieved when they were told that their payments would be swift and hassle-free.

Visiting Prince Edward Urged to Raise Persecution of Tamils with Sri Lankan Leaders and to Meet Tamil Victims: TGTE

Please remember the victims when you shake hands with military officers who committed war crimes now camouflaged as Cabinet members and President himself

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM , January 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

While His Royal Highness The Prince Edward is visiting Sri Lanka to be the Chief Guest of Sri Lanka’s Independence Day celebrations, Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) urged him to raise the persecution of Tamils with Sri Lankan leaders and to meet Tamil victims during his visit. He will represent Her Majesty The Queen at the 70th anniversary celebration of Sri Lanka’s independence on 4 February.

TGTE submitted a memo (Please see below), highlighting the abuses faced by Tamils to be raised with Sri Lankan leaders.

“While you receive the Guard of Honor during the Independence Day celebrations, please remember that these troops that give Guard of Honor are the same troops that according to UN killed over 70 thousand Tamils in six months in 2009 and raped scores of Tamil women” said TGTE. "There are around 90 thousand Tamil war widows facing numerous challenges."

Furthermore, a recent report by the International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) (http://www.itjpsl.com/reports/submission-to-cedaw ) published details of Sri Lankan Military run "Rape Camps", where Tamil women are being held as sex slaves.

“Given the gravity and serious nature of these killings and sexual violence, your own British Government sponsored a Resolution at the UN Human Rights Council stipulating that Sri Lanka to bring those responsible for these international crimes to face justice with the participation of International Judges, Prosecutors and Defense Attorneys.”

“Instead of bringing those responsible for these mass atrocities, they were promoted, given diplomatic and other senior positions and even made as senior Cabinet Ministers. There are also allegations that even the President himself is responsible, given his position as the acting Defense Minister during the final phase of the war when thousands of Tamil civilians were killed and starved to death. Please remember the victims when you shake hands with these military officers now camouflaged as Cabinet members and the President himself” said TGTE.

"We urge you not to miss this opportunity to raise the persecution of Tamils with the Sri Lankan President and Prime minister and to meet Families of the Enforced Disappearance, families of those killed, family members of those currently in prison and women who were sexually assaulted and raped during your visit to Trincomalee and Batticalow Districts. There are thousands of these victims and victim’s families who will be waiting for you when you visit these districts. We urge you not to turn a blind eye to these victims and families of the victims" said TGTE. "Sri Lankan Government will take you on a “guided tour” and avoid you see the true picture of the plight of Tamils".

TGTE URGE THE FOLLOWING ISSUES TO BE RAISED WITH SRI LANKAN LEADERS:

1) Rape Camps run by Sri Lankan Security Forces, where Tamil women are held as Sex Slaves.
2) Justice for victims of War Crimes, Crimes Against Humanity and Genocide.
3) Plight of the “Disappeared”.
4) Tamil Prisoners of War (POW).
5) Military occupation of Tamil Lands.
6) Very large Military presence in Tamil areas.
7) Tamil’s safety in danger.
8) Restrictions on Freedom of Expression (6th Amendment restrictions).

BELOW, PLEASE FIND THE DETAILS OF THESE CONCERNS:

1) RAPE CAMPS RUN BY SRI LANKAN SECURITY FORCES, WHERE TAMIL WOMEN ARE HELD AS SEX SLAVES:

A recent report by the International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) (http://www.itjpsl.com/reports/submission-to-cedaw ) published details of Sri Lankan Military run "Rape Camps", where Tamil women are being held as sex slaves.

The report states the following:

"A senior officer came into the room and was asked to take his pick, like we were meat in a meat market. He looked around and chose me. He took me to another room and raped me"

"Two of the women describe being detained in a group in one room, available for any soldier to come and choosefrom and take to an adjacent room or tent to be raped,"

48 of the victims had been detained under the Government of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and seven of them under the new Government of President Maithripala Sirisena.

ITJP has also provided details of six military men including a major and a lieutenant colonel who are alleged perpetrators of rape and torture in the military.

Details: http://www.jdslanka.org/index.php/news-features/human-rights/669-un-told-of-sri-lanka-military-operating-qrape-campsq

2) JUSTICE FOR VICTIMS OF WAR CRIMES, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND GENOCIDE:

Getting Justice for victims of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide received a setback due to Sri Lankan Government’s unwillingness to prosecute civilian and security forces for have committed mass killings of Tamils and rape. According to UN Internal Review Report on Sri Lankan up to 70 thousand Tamils were killed in six monthsin 2009 and scores of Tamil women were sexually assaulted and raped by Sri Lankan Security forces.

UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) got involved to bring justice to these abuses and Resolution (30/1) was cosponsored by Sri Lanka in the September 2015 Session of the UNHRC and Sri Lanka committed to bring perpetrators to face justice by March 2017, in a hybrid court consisting of foreign judges, prosecutors and investigators.

But Sri Lanka reneged in its commitment and came to UNHRC in March 2017 to seek extension of two years, which was granted. But the Sri Lankan President and Prime Minister have already rejected one of the main conditions of the UNHRC Resolution of establishing a Hybrid Court with foreign judges, prosecutors and investigators.

The current President, who as Acting Defense Minister during the war had command responsibility and a possible suspect for committing war crimes, crimes against humanity.
Due to Sri Lankan Government unwillingness to bring perpetrators to face justice, Tamil victim’s quest for justice is denied.

Tamils now appeal UN Human Rights Council to refer Sri Lanka to the UN General Assembly, along with a recommendation to the UN Security Council that Sri Lanka be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) or that an ad-hoc International Criminal Tribunal be created on Sri Lanka, similar to the procedure followed to assure accountability for North Korea’s Crimes Against Humanity.

Here is the Link for details: http://world.einnews.com/pr_news/369076202/sri-lanka-war-crimes-tamil-leaders-and-victims-jointly-urge-un-not-to-give-extention-and-refer-to-un-general-assembly

3) PLIGHT OF THE DISAPPREARED:

The plight of thousands of Tamils who were subjected to enforced disappearance, including several who surrendered to the Sri Lankan Security forces, remain unknown for several years.

The Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wikramasinghe made a statement that thousands of Tamils who surrendered to the Sri Lankan Security forces are no longer alive. The Sri Lankan Prime Minister made this statement on January 15, 2016 in Jaffna, when he spoke at a celebration of Thai Pongal, a Hindu festival. Despite repeated requests by family members of the “disappeared” the Prime Minister refuges to give details about how these “disappeared” were killed and where their remains are.

The relatives have a right to know what had happened to the victims, the relatives are also victims. The denial of the right to know is a violation of article 7, 9, and 10(1) of the convenant. E.Quinteros and M.C. Almeida de Quintero v Uruguay Doc A/38/40

4) TAMIL PRISONERS OF WAR (POW):

Hundreds of Tamil Prisoners of War (POW) are imprisoned, some for over fifteen years.
They are held primarily under Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA), which Sri Lankan Government promised to repeal to UN Human Rights Council, but still using PTA to arbitrarily arrest Tamils and detaining.
The current Government gave several assurances that these prisoners will be released. But years have passed without any results.

5) MILITARY OCCUPATION OF TAMIL LANDS:

Large number of private lands belonging to Tamil civilians are forcibly occupied by the Sri Lankan Security forces. Using them to commercial projects like farming, luxury hotels, shops, fishing etc., depriving Tamil’s livelihood.

The above is a deprivation of property without due process. Taking lands belonging to the Tamils on account of their nationality also constitutes a violation of article 2 of the covenant.

6) VERY LARGE MILITARY PRESENCE IN TAMIL AREAS:

According to several independent sources, Tamil areas have a ratio of one soldier for every five civilians, the highest number of soldiers to civilian ratio in the world.

In one Tamil District in the North, the ratio is one Sri Lankan soldier to every two Tamils civilians (Source: Report by think-tank Adayaalam Center for Policy Research).

Eight years have passed since the war came to an end but not a single soldier was brought to justice and the Government is trying to shield the soldiers even from the UN mandated inquiry.

Sri Lankan President and Prime Minister have already rejected one of the main conditions of the UNHRC Resolution of establishing a Hybrid Court with foreign judges, prosecutors and investigators.
The current President, who as Acting Defense Minister during the war had command responsibility and considered a possible suspect for committing war crimes, crimes against humanity and Genocide.

According to the UN, Sri Lankan security forces have committed mass killings and large scale rape of Tamil women. The same security forces that committed these abuses are still stationed in very large numbers in Tamil areas; among the same women they committed sexual violence. Tamil women have to undergo fear and humiliation to live among these soldiers and to see them walking free and enjoying full protection and support of the Government.

The suffering of 90,000 Tamil war widows is continuing, having to live with pain of losing their husbands and to take care of the children with great difficulty and facing threats, intimidation and abuse from the same soldiers who killed their husbands.

7) TAMIL'S SAFETY IN DANGER:

Since UN Human Rights Council’s decision to give extension of time to Sri Lanka for the Resolution 30/1, Tamil’s fear for their safety since it embolden and encourage Sri Lankan security forces to commit human rights abuses against Tamils without any fear.

Tens of thousands Sri Lankan Security forces who committed mass killings and sexual violence are still stationed in Tamil areas and live among the victims.

There are numerous reports of current abuses against Tamils, including a recent report by UN Special Reporter on torture, cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment Mr. Juan Mendez.
A recent report by Associated Press (AP), highlight the abuses faced by Tamils in a story titled: "Dozens of Men Say Sri Lankan forces raped and tortured them."

To Ensure Tamil’s safety UN is urged to deploy UN Human Rights Monitors in Tamil areas.

Here is the link to Associated Press (AP)Report: https://apnews.com/ced017bd441f46ba838aaedf6ff5dbe2

8) RESTRICTIONS ON FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION: 1,705 LAWYERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD APPEAL TO UN.

The 6th Amendment to Sri Lanka’s Constitution, criminalizes freedom of speech and conscience, guaranteed in Articles 18 and 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Recently, One thousand seven hundred and five lawyers (1,705) from around the world have joined the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) and filed a complaint on December 8th, 2017 with the UN Human Rights Committee that the 6th Amendment to the Sri Lankan Constitution is a violation of freedom of speech and conscience, and the right to self-determination guaranteed in Articles 18, 19, and 1 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

The Complaint was filed by former US Attorney General, Ramsey Clark, Justice K.P. Sivasubramaniam (Retd), Former Judge of the High Court of Madras, India, and the Prime Minister of The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran.

1,705 Lawyers from across the globe including heads of Bar Councils, law professors, and retired judges from U.S.A., U.K., Canada, France, Switzerland, South Sudan, and India (Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Karnataka & New Delhi), provide legal representation to the above complaint.

ABOUT TRANSNATIONAL GOVERNMENT OF TAMIL EELAM (TGTE):

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) is a democratically elected Government of a million strong Tamils (from the island of Sri Lanka) living in several countries around the world. TGTE was formed after the mass killing of Tamils by the Sri Lankan Government in 2009.

TGTE twice held internationally supervised elections among Tamils around the world to elect 132 Members of Parliament. It has two champers of Parliament: The House of Representatives and Senate and a Cabinet.
TGTE is leading a campaign to realize Tamils’ political aspirations through peaceful, democratic and diplomatic means. The Constitution of the TGTE mandates that it should realize its political objective only through peaceful means.

The Prime Minister of TGTE is Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, a New York based lawyer.

For information contact: pmo@tgte.org

BACKGROUND:

Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka faced repeated mass killings in 1958, 1977, and 1983 and the mass killings in 2009 prompted UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to appoint a Panel of Experts to report on the scale of the killings.

According to UN internal review report on Sri Lanka, over 70,000 Tamils were killed in six months in early 2009 and Tamil women were sexually assaulted and raped by the Sri Lankan Security forces. There are over 90,000 Tamil war widows and thousands of Tamils disappeared due the conflict.

According to this UN report, the killings and other abuses that took place amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity. Independent experts believe that there are elements of these abuses that constitute an act of genocide.

Members of the Sri Lankan security forces are almost exclusively from the Sinhalese community and the victims are all from the Tamil community. A Buddhist Monk shot and killed a Sri Lankan Prime Minister 1959 for having talks with Tamils.

Tamils overwhelmingly voted in a Parliamentary election in 1977 to establish an independent and sovereign country called Tamil Eelam. This Parliamentary election was conducted by the Sri Lankan Government.

Encoder Farm Undercuts Competition for Video Encoding Costs by 90%

I truly believe video encoding prices have stifled innovation within today's social media space.”

— Liam McCallum

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, January 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Encoder Farm is pleased to announce the launch of its cloud video encoding service that drastically slashes SaaS costs by using a different billing model. Encoder Farm is a unique cloud video encoding service that charges a single, all-inclusive price per encoder, rather than charging per minute, per-gigabyte, or by demanding huge overages for outputs such as HD video.

Having been in the position of having to pay a $58,000 video encoding bill himself on one occasion, Encoder Farm's Liam McCallum is delighted to be able to provide encoding services to customers without having to bankrupt them in the process.

"I truly believe video encoding prices have stifled innovation within today's social media space," says McCallum. "When a new startup estimates their AWS or Zencoder bill on top of their already high bandwidth bill, then that new app idea suddenly doesn't seem so feasible.”

Encoder Farm allows the customer to control how much they pay for video encoding. By charging a single, all-inclusive price per encoder, customers can choose how quickly their queue gets processed.

"If you're a bootstrapped startup, then a single $199 encoder will process up to 40 thousand minutes a month," McCallum explains. "If you're well funded, then throw a hundred or a thousand encoders at your queue; it's instantly and infinitely scalable."
Encoder Farm also aims to be easier to get up and running than the competition by offering a fully featured but much simpler API.

“See for yourself” says McCallum. “Sign up for free, no credit card required, and use our point and click API builder tool. All free accounts come with 6 trial encoders so it’s easy to see how the system works.”

About the Company:

Established in 2012, Encoder Farm is a video encoding API for developers with locations in New York, Hong Kong and Australia. Well suited for startups, the company’s services are tailored toward customers who need to process high volumes of video at a rate that’s 10 times cheaper per month than the competition.

The Republic of South Sudan Acknowledged the Support of the United States of America-"But!"

South Sudan President Salva Kiir meets US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley in Juba

NAIROBI, NAIROBI, KENYA, January 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A diplomatic breakdown following the statement delivered by the US Ambassador, Nikki Haley, to the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), accusing President Salva Kiir Mayardit of South Sudan for allowing his forces to violate the 24 December 2017 cessation hostilities, signed on 22 December 2017, by his Government representative and all the other warring parties of South Sudan. She said that the US helped South Sudan to achieve independence from Sudan through safe guided negotiations. She went further to say that "the US has supported President Kiir as a partner, but he is unfit to govern." Ambassador Haley should go back a little bit in order to learn more about the diplomatic rift that still exists between the US and South Sudan. Since 2012, the Obama administration discarded the Republic of South Sudan and embraced Sudan, Arabs and Muslims countries (excluding Africa) in pursuit of terrorists and "hunt for Osama bin Laden, alive or dead." A revenge for New York Trade Center attack on 11 September 2001. Below is the known or unknown story by Ambassador Haley, it flows:

World Trade Center Attack
The Al Qaeda terrorist attack on the New York World Trade Center, on 11 September 2001, was the turning diplomatic point for the United States of America and Western Europe to adopt the "hot pursuit of the Radical Islamic Terrorists" into the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. For the US administration and its national security, Pakistan, Afganistan, Iran, Iraq, Kingdom of Jordon, Lebanon, Palestine (Amas), Somalia, Sudan, and others, were the centers of Al Qaeda activities and the favorite cells and command-posts for Osama bin Laden, the terrorists' leader. These countries plus were the would-be American military and diplomatic targets.

President Bush (Junior) decided to deal with some of these countries, such as Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan to face them with the immediate military crackdown. Countries like Iran, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, and Sudan to remain engaged through the diplomatic channels. Sudan and US to cooperate, share intelligence over terrorism and its leader, Osama bin Laden. For Iranian sponsorship of international terrorism and Nuclear ambition, US administration accepted to support dialogue through United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and over the matters of the Radical Islamic movements funded by Iran, such as Hizbullah in Lebanon. For Sudan, the US administration decided to follow the diplomatic path for Sudan to abandon harboring the international terrorism, led by bin Laden and accept peace with the Sudan People's Liberation Movement, SPLM.

In exchange, the US would mediate a negotiated peaceful resolution of the conflict between Sudan and South Sudan to end the war. The  US involvement concluded the popular "Comprehensive Peace Agreement, CPA," signed by the SPLM and Nation Congress Party, NCP, for Southern Sudan and Sudan respectively. From 2002 to 9 January 2005, US-mediated the most successful agreement ever. The CPA, to be exact, was monitored, guaranteed and signed by the US Secretary of State, General Collin Powel, in his capacity as an agreed guarantor and witness by the two parties, SPLM and NCP.

This agreement recognized Islamic sharia law, military dictatorship and ended the war in Sudan.The agreement also obliged the Sudan government to break its diplomatic relations with Al Qaeda by resuming diplomatic relations with the US and collaboration of intelligence on international terrorism. Equally, the SPLM and the ruling NCP mutually recognized one another and agreed to form an interim coalition government for the whole Sudan, with an autonomous interim government for Southern Sudan, to last for six years, from 2005 to 9 July 2011.

On 9 July 2011, following the successful referendum vote on 9 January 2011, President Salva Kiir Mayardit declared the independence of South Sudan. The independent day was heavily attended, overwhelmingly by South Sudanese citizens and world leaders. Among the world attendees, were the USA, European Community (EU), Norway, African Union (AU), Sudan and the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon. President Omer Hassan Al Bashir of Sudan was the first to diplomatically recognized the new nation when he congratulated President Salva and the people of South Sudan. Sudan's congratulatory message was followed by the unanimous stream of congratulations and well-wishes from within the country and abroad.

This honey-moon like celebrations could not last beyond one year (9 July 2011-9 July 2012). The US relations with South Sudan began to soar and slide downhill. The cause of dwindling US relations was dependent on President Obama administration's policies towards the Radical Islamic Nations like Sudan and Iran. Obama administration opted for strong diplomatic relations with the Arabs and Muslims nations. President Obama wanted a strong military and diplomatic campaigns in his war against Osama bin Laden's Al Qaeda and the Radical Islamic Terrorism Worldwide. South Sudan was not anymore strategic to America, as long as Radical Islamic Sudan dropped out for support of the US and Western European war against Radical Islamic Terrorism. The Obama's U-turn against South Sudan for Sudan, affected greatly the new nation, in setting up a new social, political and economic infrastructure.

President Barack Obama meets President of South Sudan Salva Kiir in New York,
The worst of Obama's policy towards South Sudan was revealed when he met President Salva Kiir in his office in in 2011. Among and within their conversations, Obama warned President Salva to disassociate himself from supporting the SPLM-North rebels against President Al Bashir government in Khartoum. President Salva denied that "I don't support SPLM-North rebels in the Nuba Mountains, South Blue Nile, and Darfur." But President Obama confronted Kiir with imagery evidence of military movements from South Sudan Bentiu state into Kordofan state. From then on, Salva did not meet Obama again until January 2016, the time Obama handed over the political power to New American President, Donald J Trump. Anything new with President Trump?

There is nothing so far, new in the US foreign policy, that indicates a change of American commitment in the military campaign against International Radical Islamic Terrorism

‘We the People’…Good Friday National Holiday Campaign supports senate bill to establish Good Friday as a holiday in NYS.

Isaiah 53

The Suffering Servant/A Grave Assigned

Good Friday National Holiday Campaign Prayerfully Supports New York State Senate Bill Number S.6937, to Establish GOOD FRIDAY as a public holiday in N.Y. State.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, January 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Good Friday National Holiday Campaign has announced that it is prayerfully supporting the State Senate Bill S. 6937 to designate Good Friday as a public holiday in New York. The Bill S. 6937 is an act to amend the general construction law and the education law, in relation to the designation of Good Friday as a public holiday.

The campaign has humbly asked the Trump Administration to please give Good Friday commemorative status in the USA. This is particularly so as Good Friday is a national holiday in over 135 countries across the globe, and in only 12 states in the U.S., as well as in 3 US Territories.

We humbly ask the Trump Administration to please give Good Friday commemorative status in the USA. The “One Million Signatures” Campaign is an effort designed to raise awareness among the public, through a series of dialogues with our elected officials, and collection of signatures of our supporters on a petition addressed to the White House.

The State of New York has already demonstrated an interest in the subject both in the private and public sectors, with Wall Street, New York’s secular entity that trades in billions of dollars closing on Good Friday. The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), NASDAQ, as well as other equity and options platforms, also close for business on Good Friday. This also applies to public schools, as they all close their gates on Good Friday.

According to the director and spokesperson of the Good Friday Campaign, Sharon Jones, “We have been advocating for several years now having Good Friday established as a National Holiday in the USA, and we are certainly planning to take this campaign all the way to the White House.” Jones added, “Bill S. 6937 in New York State is a great start to 2018; it is a New Day for us. In these upcoming months, we will be heavily focused on how this glorious, moveable feast day set aside for Our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ is extremely important in the United States.”

As an individual citizen, there is no conflict whatsoever between the church and the state and the subsequent signing of the petition. It only shows The White House that real people are signing the petition to make Good Friday a national holiday in our USA. The Good Friday National Holiday Campaign seeks to establish Good Friday as a commemorative day in the United States of America.

We, the undersigned, seek to enshrine Good Friday as a Federal holiday under Title V of the United States Code (5 U.S.C, § 6103) due to its long-standing tradition in American culture and history.

Supporting and signing the New York Senate Bill S. 6937 takes only a few minutes, requiring backers to simply click on the following link: https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2017/S6937.

High Definition Music Card – The New Way to Experience Music!

Alexander Golberg Jero

Alexander Golberg Jero

The High Definition Music Card Debuts with Mozart Requiem

Each individual sound can have it's unique location in 3-dimensional space”

— Alexander Golberg Jero

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Alexander Goldberg Jero, the first winner of the first-ever Surround Sound Music Award back in 2002, has been making waves in the last few months with the planned arrival of his new High Definition Music Card – which he now says will be released with Mozart's Requiem on file.

The High Definition Music Card will come in a USB format, will contain a plethora of musical choice, will be interactive, fit in your pocket and – as if all that wasn't enough – contains all of the latest and most advanced software related to surround sound reproduction – the aspect for which Jero is most famous. The intricately simplistic device seeks to be compatible with desktop and laptop devices, iPads and phones, Android phones, headphones, blu-ray players – and any other number of functional devices that one can use to listen to music on. Compatibility is one of the big selling points of this product, increasing its functionality and thereby its value to the consumer. The new innovative design of the HD card will allow music listeners not only to store their favourite tunes all in one place but will also be a sort of multi-media one-stop shop, where people can connect to share videos with friends, listen and share music and even explore the cards files to find some new tunes.
The days of keeping music on CDS are swiftly dying out!

Jero's innovative new product will be mass marketed, aimed at all consumers and specified as a new musical experience. It is set to take the music world by storm, and to re-establish Jero as a world leader in sound production. The HD card's production is already attracting major record labels and other popular artists who support the idea of a new form of music. Jero doesn't want to take all of the success to himself, however, and has earmarked space on the HD card for other artists to link blogs, bios and other information back to customers, helping every artist involved to flourish and prosper! Also good news for the consumer, who can scan through details of artists they like at a mere glance.

Born in Moscow, Jero Goldberg started playing music at the age of 7. In an interview with High Fidelity Review in 2002 he says;
"Coming from a classical music background I was always looking at sound and acoustics as a main creative element of music perception. In my early years, I was always searching for the perfect location in a room to play one of my instruments and using its acoustics to complement the performance."

Jero is recording a glut of classical warhorses anew, hiring the very best of musicians in the field to connect to his virtual studio and work under his own baton. However, these are not live ensemble recordings in the traditional sense. Jero brings sections in separately and records them, often utilizing previous recordings as reference material. He then assembles the final product in the mixing room. It's an unusual approach for a genre as hopefully organic as classical music, and listeners reactions may be colored by the knowledge that high tech wizardry has at least helped to craft the architecture of any given performance.

Jero attempts to explain his process thusly; "To understand how impactful it will be, just imagine being at the movies, watching a 3D film and the concept is the same. Each individual sound has its unique three-dimensional location in space, just like 3D images do. Further, this project brings the potential to radically change the music industry through exciting new technologies and expertise." By using this process he creates 3-dimensional sounds that pop against the background and create a unique new experience for all listeners. Jero has created the third dimension of music – and better yet, he is giving us a way to access it!

All that is left to do is to wait for the announcement of the card's arrival to see for ourselves what kind of delights lie in wait for us. If you wish to know more about the project, think you can contribute or even want to get in touch with Mr Jero himself then you can find out more about upcoming High Definition Music Card titles at highdefinitionmusiccard.com. The High Definition Music Card is tipped to be the new format for music lovers everywhere, so keep up with the trends and don't miss out!
