Global Civilians For Peace In Libya

By Tim Whewell

BBC Newsnight

Leaders of one of Libya’s largest and most powerful tribes have told BBC Newsnight that they will take their own revenge on the killers of the rebel commander, General Abdel Fattah Younes, if the country’s new rulers fail to solve the case.

Elders of Younes’ Obeidi tribe said senior officials in the National Transitional Council (NTC) conspired with Islamic extremists to kill the general, whose mutilated body was found along with those of two senior aides in a valley near the rebel-held city of Benghazi on 28 July 2011.

Several of his fingers had been cut off, one eye gouged out, his stomach cut open and his body burned.

The day before his body was found, Younes – the most senior defector to the rebels from Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s government – had been arrested on NTC orders, apparently over suspicions that he was failing to…

YouTube has unveiled a set of editing features for the site, which allow users to tweak their videos and add a number of effects.

In a move that makes total sense – and something that should have been implemented a long time ago – users will now be able to trim their clips on the site, as well as stabilise shaky footage, boost the colours and contrast and even give the video a whole new look.

The new features mean that we finally see the fruits of YouTube’s acquisition of image-editing company Green Parrot, back in March.

YouTube has made it really easy to edit your footage. All you have to do is head to My Videos page and clock on the Edit Video button.

In a nice little nod to owners Google, YouTube has added a one-click colour correction system button, which it has branded I’m Feeling Lucky.

I thought this is interesting. check it out!


I’ve been at IDF (Intel Developers Forum) in San Francisco for the past two days.  Somehow, my picture showed up on the front page of the business section of the San Jose Mercury News.  Quite a surprise to me, as I had to leave my house early and my copy of the Merc was sitting on my doorstep.  My friend Kevin Susco emailed it to me while I was at the show.

Interestingly, below me is a photo of Intel CEO Paul Otellini.  The photo of me is bigger and I’m at the top of the page, so apparently I’m more important.  🙂  You can measure importance by the rapid growth of my blog… it started as a blog about cycling, then I added food with the article on Pizzoccheri, and now I’m covering technology.

So, the article was about Intel’s new “UltraBook” laptops.  Here is Intel CEO Paul Otellini announcing…

I am a Kenyan living in Istanbul, Turkey for my University education. Well its a beautiful city here. The city of love. Locals as hospitable as ever. If you know me well then that just means one thing… fun! and don’t I just love this whole experience thing! To make it tick am outgoing so friends just come naturally, if you know what I mean. But that’s besides the point. digressing (mmmh already! and we have not even started!) But don’t get me wrong, I know fun is relative…

Mates ima be using this spot to post some sense. Some fun and sports too, football especially cause its in my bloody head always. I got something special too for the Kenyan youth, my peers. Friends from all over the world too. Guys ima be feeding you on sense and sense alone! Am no Charles Dickens and aint gonna crap about facts or teach you anything but I will offer you what I got, however small. In my own small way!

About me pals. well am young, 20yrs. That could well be old if you just crawled into life after winning that all-important sperm race. Am from a humble background, simple and determined.

Young yes but I have already gone through so much in life. Big challenges those were. Yet am still far from being there. I thank God for the positive attitude and the big heart. For the flexible and expansive mind too. These have been my greatest pillars. I draw confidence from being loved and loving back. I see people as PEOPLE, lovely people. Different in colours and stature yes but still as beautiful, just like the flowers.

I would do anything to remove the word ‘hate’ from every language in the world. I would feed everyone with peace and let them shower with love. If I had the power. but I don’t.That’s me. Am only human!

Welcome to my blog beautiful people. Lets feed on … sense!
