     a. Swaraj can mean generally self-governance or "self-rule", and was used synonymously with "home-rule" by Gandhi[1] (Hindi: swa- "self", raj "rule") but the word usually refers to Gandhi's concept for Indian independence from foreign domination.[2] Swaraj lays stress on governance not by a hierarchical government, but self governance through individuals and community building. The focus is on political decentralization.[3] Since this is against the political and social systems followed by Britain, Gandhi's concept of Swaraj laid stress on India discarding British political, economic, bureaucratic, legal, military, and educational institutions.[4]

Stocks gain on Greece, Dow briefly hits 13,000

Stocks gain on Greece, Dow briefly hits 13,000from reuters: Stocks rose on Tuesday, with the Dow briefly topping 13,000 for the first time since May 2008 after Greece secured a bailout to avoid a March default, but gains were limited as investors had priced in expectations of a deal. Signs of improvement in the economy and stabilization of Europe's debt crisis have driven the Dow more than 20 percent since late last year, while the S&P has climbed more than 8 percent so far this year. Euro zone finance ministers agreed on a 130-billion-euro ($172 billion) rescue for Greece to avert an imminent chaotic default after forcing Athens to commit to unpopular cuts and private bondholders to take bigger losses. "This is the most solid agreement Greece has had, with actual money behind it, and that makes the market optimistic," said Phil Flynn, senior market analyst at PFG Best in Chicago.

'The Simpsons' marks 500th episode, Assange guest stars

#Simpsons500 Long-time followers of Media Monarchy know that we're long-time fans of 'The Simpsons' ... Interestingly, last night's episode featured a fake disaster drill distraction put forth by corporate-controlled media - guest starring Julian Assange!

'The Simpsons' marks 500th episode, Assange guest starsfrom afp: The Simpsons, the long-running US television animated comedy show, reached its landmark 500th episode Sunday, with an appearance from controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. America's most famous dysfunctional cartoon family have played out their lives before a worldwide audience for over two decades since the distinctive yellow characters Homer, Maggie and children Bart, Lisa and baby Maggie first burst onto American TV in 1989. The series has become the longest-running comedy in US television history and in its 23rd season is currently the longest-running primetime scripted show. In the 500th show, Homer and Marge discover Springfield residents are holding a secret meeting to kick them out of town, for all the trouble they've caused over the years. After being sent into exile, the Simpsons arrange to meet with Assange in a bid to clear their names. The show's executive producer Al Jean acknowledged last month that Assange, who leaked massive amounts of sensitive diplomatic and military documents, was a controversial figure.

1.8 Million Dead People Currently Registered To Vote

1.8 Million Dead People Currently Registered To Votefrom ibtimes.com: According to statistics released by the Pew Center of the States, at least 1.8 million dead people are currently registered to vote. Additionally, 24 million voter registrations have some serious errors. While there is little suspicion of voter fraud, many people have pointed out the serious consequences of using such a flawed system.

One of the biggest problems with voter registration is that Americans are constantly moving across state lines. When they move, they are supposed to alert local election offices so that their previous states can be notified. But very few actually do and as a result, almost 3 million people in the U.S. are registered to vote in more than one state.

Pew has made several suggestions that could mend the current system. One way to improve voter registration would be to implement the system electronically. The voter databases could then be cross-checked against other government databases, such as motor vehicle registries or death records from the Social Security Administration.

Some states are also joining an experimental program that will allow them to share voter information between databases to reduce duplicates. The digital program could ultimately allow for easier voter registration and a much more streamlined registry - an imperative step considering that 52 million eligible voters are not registered to vote in the upcoming presidential elections at the end of this year.

It is expressed by the assertion "I myself only exist", in other words, no reality exists other than one's own mind.

    Expanded Role Proposed for 'Elite' Military Forces

    from nytimes.com: As the United States turns increasingly to Special Operations forces to confront developing threats scattered around the world, the nation’s top Special Operations officer, a member of the Navy Seals who oversaw the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, is seeking new authority to move his forces faster and outside of normal Pentagon deployment channels.

    The officer, Adm. William H. McRaven, who leads the Special Operations Command, is pushing for a larger role for his elite units who have traditionally operated in the dark corners of American foreign policy. The plan would give him more autonomy to position his forces and their war-fighting equipment where intelligence and global events indicate they are most needed.

    It would also allow the Special Operations forces to expand their presence in regions where they have not operated in large numbers for the past decade, especially in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

    While President Obama and his Pentagon’s leadership have increasingly made Special Operations forces their military tool of choice, similar plans in the past have foundered because of opposition from regional commanders and the State Department. The military’s regional combatant commanders have feared a decrease of their authority, and some ambassadors in crisis zones have voiced concerns that commandos may carry out missions that are perceived to tread on a host country’s sovereignty, like the rift in ties with Pakistan after the Bin Laden raid.

    Activists Fight Green Projects, Seeing UN Plot

    Activists Fight Green Projects, Seeing UN Plotfrom nytimes: Across the country, activists with ties to the Tea Party are railing against all sorts of local and state efforts to control sprawl and conserve energy. They brand government action for things like expanding public transportation routes and preserving open space as part of a United Nations-led conspiracy to deny property rights and herd citizens toward cities... The protests date to 1992 when the United Nations passed a sweeping, but nonbinding, 100-plus-page resolution called Agenda 21 that was designed to encourage nations to use fewer resources and conserve open land by steering development to already dense areas. They have gained momentum in the past two years because of the emergence of the Tea Party movement, harnessing its suspicion about government power and belief that man-made global warming is a hoax.
