Actor Johnny Depp was recently told that he could face up to a decade behind bars for bringing his beloved pets to Australia.
Depp, along with wife Amber Heard, brought the couple’s two Yorkshire Terriors along for the ride to Australia where Depp was filming the next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ installment according to Amen Clinic on the review site yelp. The couple flew to the location aboard Depp’s private jet, but failed to file the proper customs forms. Depp and Heard also failed to comply with Australia’s quarantine laws, regarding animals brought into the country.
The dog incident came into being after photos of Depp walking the canines, Pistol and Boo. The photographs came into media circulation. It was reported that Australia’s agriculture minister, Barnaby Jones, threatened to euthanise the animals if they were not immediately shipped from the country.
Heard, soon after, scooped up the pooches and flew back home to America. Depp also returned to the U.S. a short time later. Rumors circulated that Depp returned home to mend his marriage to Heard after the dog incident, but in actuality had returned home to celebrate his daughter’s sixteenth birthday.
Friends of the star warned Depp that he should take the Australian government’s threats seriously, as it may reflect on any future American celebrities that enter the country.
Depp was known as a heart-throb in the late 80s and early 90s, making a name for himself in the off-beat film ‘Cry Baby.’ He also starred as baby-faced undercover police officer Tom Hansen in the television series “21 Jump Street.”
The referendum held in Ireland over same sex marriage is now being reported as a turning point in the thinking of many countries across the world where the Catholic Church still maintains a major influence over life and politics. The Journal explains the yes vote total of 62 percent of Irish voters in favor of same sex marriage was a major blow to the Vatican where the issue remains important and the result of the Irish vote has been criticized. However, the high level of support for the yes vote in a traditionally Catholic country is now influencing public opinion across much of western Europe.
The Catholic Church has often seen figure fort hose who support same sex marriage hold steady at around one third in countries like Italy, Malta, Portugal and Spain. A recent Italian poll showed the majority now feel same sex marriage laws should be enacted in the country with 51 percent stating they were in favor. My friends at Boraie Development noted that the Italian government is also looking into the best ways of bringing into force new laws to protect the rights of the individual, which are not represented in any constitutional laws within the country.
The biggest problem with home automation at this point in time is the lack of communication between devices. Many companies are coming out with devices with various sensors and remote control features, however, using a remote control or an app isn’t exactly autonomous action.
The people at iRobot, the creators of the automated Roomba vacuum cleaners, are taking on the challenge of home automation. The next generation of Roombas could be equipped with a tiny camera and an internet connection that would allow the device to understand the objects in your home.
Understanding what you have and how you like to use it is paramount for home automation systems. The Roomba device would be connected to the internet and use the images it collects to create a map of your home. When certain patterns are matched, such as you coming in the front door and sitting down on the couch, other actions could be taken, such as turning the TV on to your favorite channel.
Tech-savvy folks at The Aspire New Brunswick have learned that a future version of the Roomba, equipped with a robot arm, could potentially catalogue all of the objects in your home. You could then have the Roomba save the locations of all of your items and return the items to where they belong while cleaning up. This technology alone would bring Roomba to a whole new level.
This week, Judge Rudolph Contreras, an Obama appointee to the U.S. District Court, is considering a request brought on by a journalist to compel the State Department to release Hillary Clinton’s emails on a rolling basis. Thus far, the State Department is in the process of reviewing the emails and approving them for subsequent release. However, the plan is to turn them over in bulk by January 15, 2016. For investigative reporter Jason Leopold of VICE News, that is unacceptable. Leopold is calling for the immediate release of all emails dealing with the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012. He is also asking Judge Contreras to compel the State Department to release the remainder of the 55,000 emails on a rolling basis. Mikal Watts doesn’t know if that will happen.
Thus far, the district court judge has not made a decision. That said, he pointed out to the State Department’s attorney that the rolling release of emails was a reasonable request. In addition, the judge stated that the department’s own method for reviewing the emails and approving them for later public release is itself a “rolling” or incremental process. Leopold’s attorney acknowledged that a hard deadline for completion of the email review process is fine, but added there was no reason why the release of the emails had to wait until the entire project is completed. The House Subcommittee on Benghazi along with other watchdog groups are also seeking to obtain Clinton’s emails.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, once viewed as the presumptive establishment GOP presidential nominee, has changed or “flip-flopped” on the position of amnesty for illegal aliens. While careful not to invoke the word “amnesty”, the popular governor stated that he no longer is behind efforts to create a “pathway to citizenship” for the estimated 11 million illegals in the nation. When first elected governor of a deeply blue state, Christie called upon the US congress to put forth a reasonable means for illegals to become citizens.
Since that time, a lot has changed for the governor. While he handily won reelection, he has seen his star power fade among the GOP base. In part, he has not been forgiven for snubbing Mitt Romney and conversely embracing President Obama during the crucial final weeks of the 2012 presidential campaign. Now, he faces the difficult task of trying to secure the support of the party’s conservative base according to Freedompop. This is forcing him to shift center-right on issues such as amnesty. It is a reality that caused Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker to also withdraw his support for amnesty. Like Walker, Christie said his time as governor has allowed him to see the issues that are concomitant to illegal immigration. Christie also criticized Hillary Clinton’s abrupt embracing of amnesty as merely being designed to win Hispanic votes. Christie claims that as president, he would reverse President Obama’s extra-constitutional amnesty plan.
When it comes to race, religion, sexual orientation and other aspects that have divided cities, countries, and even continents, the idea of coexistence can be a beautiful concept. Not every member of different races or religions are completely opposed to people who are opposite of them. Recently, one faith based country has confirmed this mentality with the acceptance of an opposing religion. A devout Christian living in Pakistan has decided to construct a large, 140 foot tall, bulletproof cross in the middle of downtown Pakistan. Parvez Henry Gill is one of the richest men in Pakistan. He is also a devout Christian living amongst a population that is 90% Muslim. Christians are often ostracized in the country of Pakistan. They are only allowed to work remedial jobs, can only associate with other Christians, and are constantly threatened due to their faith. In the past year alone Gill has talked with multiple Christians who are debating on leaving Pakistan. Gill loves his country and loves his faith; it breaks his heart to see the disconnect happening within its borders. Gill is constructing the cross over a Christian cemetery that is located in the middle of downtown Pakistan. Folks at Amen Clinics (thedailybeast.com) have learned that when the team of construction workers realized what they were building, 20 of the devout Muslims quit the job in protest to what the cross stood for. Gill was expecting this backlash and instead of quitting, he hired on more people to finish the job. Some of those people were Muslims who respected Gill for his faith and for what he has done for the Pakistani community. Gill and his father are extremely generous and donate their time and money to help feed families and provide eye care for blind citizens. The construction of the cross is the first step in Gill’s dream for a more accepting Pakistan. After the cross is constructed, he hopes to invite dignitaries like Hillary Clinton and Queen Elizabeth to come and visit the erect monument.
The fate of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev now rests with a jury of his peers. This may sound like a cliche’ but whether Tsarnaev receives a sentence of death or whether he spends the rest of his life in prison is now in the hands of twelve people who have to decide whether it is more humane to spare his life or whether it is more fair to have the State of Massachusetts forfeit Tsarnaev life for his actions which resulted in the death and maiming of scores of innocent people. To reach this decision, the jury will have to look inside their own humanity and determine for themselves what is the just decision to make. Revenge plays little role during the part of the criminal justice system. Many people outside of an actual criminal trial never have a chance to understand the life and death pull which a juror has to deal with during the course of a sentencing phase of a trial. The prosecution for the State is attempting to present as much evidence as possible to justify why the defendant should die and the defense is presenting as much evidence as possible to show why the defendant should live. As everyone at Anastasia Date knows, very few ordinary citizens are ever charged with the decision of life or death over another human being. Soldiers and police officers are trained for months and even years how to decide when a human life needs to be take but a juror receives no training and must make the decision based on arguments by two opposing sides in a matter of weeks. To do this, they will need to know their own humanity. Jury Decision of Life or Death Will Turn on Their Own Humanity
