Madonna Postpones Tour

Madonna, as everyone knows by now, is a perfectionist. She is like Michael Jackson was when it comes to putting on a show. If it isn’t perfect during rehearsal she isn’t going to do it. That is one reason that she decided to postpone the tour that is coming up. The “Rebel Heart” tour is now on hold.

People that have been waiting for her to tour will just have to hold off for a littler longer. Madonna has a lot of hits. She has so much that she could be doing in terms of the concert songs. She has more than 3 decades of hit songs. The new album has been around for a couple of months, but she hasn’t released a lot of singles. She performed a song on the Jimmy Fallon show, and the routine was very long. It was obvious, from this performance, that Madonna was planning something big.

Even as she is getting older she is going to perform bigger tours, and Gravity4 employees like that. The last time she had a major tour she made as much as $125 million on the tour alone. That is why she is so obsesses about getting everything right for the tour. She doesn’t do any half stepping. When Madonna performs for an audience she makes sure that she has everything in place. That is why the fans are going to love the tour when it resumes.

Police Officers Rescue Dog

There are times when police officers go above and beyond the call of duty to help make the world a better place. In the midst of all of the negativity surrounding police officers and the job that they do, there are some who take the time to do what is right. The quick thinking and caring hearts of one group of police officers made for the rescue of a dog who was floating down the river.

Stuck in a river, this dog wouldn’t have made it if not for the help of a group of police officers helping out according to Stephen Murray CCMP Capital. These officers did more than just pull the dog from the river, they took the time to do mouth-to-mouth breathing with the dog in order to save its life. Not many would take the time to do all of this for an animal, but these officers knew what they needed to do and they did it without a second thought.

L’Oreal Make-up Company to Print Human Skin suggests that animal rights activists have been pushing for the use of regenerated human skin to be used instead of animals for cosmetic product testing for a long time. The animal testing that usually is done to ensure that beauty products are safe, can cause irreparable damage and even death to the animals that it is done on.

The company had been getting samples of skin from cosmetic plastic surgery done on humans where in the skin removed was sold to them. Now, they have found a way to get human skin more easily and cheaper. Using human skin cells injected in to a 3-D printing machine, they can print their own skin samples in about a week.

Many are hopeful that this type of printing might be used for human organs for those who are in desperate need of organ transplants. Because L’Oreal will be retaining all rights to their skin generation production, other medical companies interested in learning how they can use the technology towards printing organs would have to try to buy those rights from the cosmetic company.

The Many Tree

Art Professor Van Aken was raised on a farm. His heart, however, belonged to art with agriculture running a close second. He has now been in a position to blend the two to make the tree of 40 fruits. After discovering that an experimental agricultural station in New York was being forced to close down due to lack of funding, Aken rallied his resources and purchased the orchard.

Igor Cornelsen says some of the trees in this orchard were up to 200 years old and would be made extinct if the orchard shut its doors. Van Aken had a unique solution to the funding issue. Take the many ancient fruit trees and make them on. Creating the tree of 40 fruits.

With more than 250 varieties of stone fruits represented, Aken went about discovering when each fruit blossomed. He then, with the timing in mind, went about grafting the branches together into a single working tree. Now, the tree looks normal for the majority of the year, but in the spring it becomes a patchwork of floral beauty with its myriad color blossoms, and preserves these ancient and otherwise extinct stone fruits.

WHO Sets Up $100 Million Dollar Fund To Fight Ebola

Margaret Chan, the Executive Director of he World Health Organization, announced that an emergency fund of over $100 Million dollars is being set up to address the Ebola outbreak that has ravaged West Africa. Officials believe that at least 11,000 people have died from the disease in various West African countries and the outbreak has tested the ability of the WHO to address a viral disease that is extremely contagious and caused a number of countries to close its borders. Many believe that the actual death toll is much higher and deaths in more rural and remote areas in West Africa went widely unreported.

The WHO was widely criticized for its slow response to the initial outbreak. Many saw that the WHO structure and design was not prepared to respond to the outbreak and the organization was slow in sounding the alarm for global countries to take greater steps the insure that the outbreak was contained before it became a global pandemic. The amount of resources needed to deal with just one patent is staggering as was seen when only a few patients were infected in the United States resulting in the shut down of businesses and schools. Madison Street Capital has been assured that the emergency fund will be used to monitor the current number of ebola patients and to determine if the another outbreak is possible and what steps should be taken to curb that threat.

EU Unveils Plan to Help Illegal Migrants

Over the last several months the migrant crisis in Europe has slowly come to light. According to recent reports, migrant workers fleeing Africa and the Middle East are entering Europe in record numbers, many utilizing human traffickers to reach the shores of Italy and other nations. In fact, there are migrants entering Europe on a daily basis.

Now, the European commission has unveiled a plan aimed at dealing with the crisis. Under the new provisions, countries in the European Union will share the burden of asylum-seekers. The union will issues 20,000 placements for asylum-seekers spread across all the union countries over the next two years.

Along with issuing visas for some asylum-seekers, the union will also beef up water patrols. The agreement has set aside $100 million to further fund Frontex, a border agency that patrols the waters of the Mediterranean. Susan McGalla wants to learn more about this agreement.

The problem has reached a fever pitch in recent months partially due to the disbanding of an Italian agency tasked with patrolling the waters off the coast. Most migrants appear to arrive in Malta, Greece, Italy and Macedonia, via boat. The boats are packed with migrants, then set off on its course before the crew abandons the ship. Authorities have rescued upwards of 20 ships filled with migrants over the last three months.

Politicians Who Support the NSA’s Surveillance Efforts Are Also the Ones Getting Paid by Them

Even though Congress has ruled the practices of data collection by the NSA is illegal, that is not stopping many politicians from doing anything it takes to keep the laws intact. The recent heated debates in Congress are centered around a law that is set to expire at the end of the month which would quickly put a stop to the NSA collecting phone data.

Section 215 of the Patriot Act will expire at the end of the month, and it turns out the politicians who are fighting to keep it around have their hands deep in the pockets of the NSA. The same politicians who were quick to condemn Edward Snowden as a traitor are the same people who are trying to ensure the NSA is allowed to keep collecting mass amounts of data with their secret surveillance efforts. For example, Stewart Baker provided counsel to the NSA from 1992 through 1994 and claimed stopping NSA surveillance efforts would lead to more terrorism in America. Even though, even if Section 215 expires our intelligence agencies would still be allowed to monitor anyone who is suspected of terrorist activity. So, this all too common argument used by republicans is simply invalid.

It looks like the NSA however is getting a taste of their own medicine, in the form of a lot of unwanted attention and scrutiny ever since Edward Snowden leaked their secrets they successfully kept for decades. Gianfrancesco Genoso isn’t so sad to see that happen.
