After Horses fighting to death for Muslim entertainment in the Philippines. Now Bear Bating in Pakistan. The rules are simple: a pair of trained fighting dogs are unleashed on a tethered bear whose claws and sharpest teeth have been removed

A bear attempts to fend off attacks from specially trained dogs at a bear baiting event.

Although the bear baiting was banned in Pakistan in 1980 by the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, it continues to prevail in deeply rural tribal regions. Landlords are extremely powerful figures in certain areas of rural Pakistan. They are the main actors behind these fights, which they organise for several reasons. Firstly, the events are intended to draw large crowds – and therefore more money – to village fairs in the landlord’s territory. But mainly, the landlords want to prove they are above the law: defying the government ban against bear baiting is a way of flexing their political muscles.

Dog owners pull the dogs off the bear after several minutes of fighting. Although the bears are often injured, they are too valuable to their gypsie owners – who use them over multiple fights – to be killed.

Animal protection groups like the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) have worked with Pakistani authorities to try to eradicate the practice. According to the WSPA, education campaigns and crackdowns on bear-baiting events have helped stop 80% of planned bear baiting events since 2001, and led to the successful rescue of 40 bears. Nevertheless, the group estimates there are some 70 bears still being made to fight in Pakistan.

The Kund Bear Sanctuary was set up in 2000 near the northern Pakistani city of Peshawar to provide a safe haven for baited bears that were confiscated from their owners.

Nuclear Testing Timelapse Map by Isao Hashimoto. More than 2000 Nuclear Explosions…

Posted in 2013 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2013 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI

Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project’s “Trinity” test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear)

Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. Hashimoto, who began the project in 2003, says that he created it with the goal of showing”the fear and folly of nuclear weapons.” It starts really slow — if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so — but the buildup becomes overwhelming

Pakistan earthquake creates NEW ISLAND in the sea instantly!!!

Full story from Reuters here:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/0…

quote reuters:

“The earthquake was so powerful that it caused the seabed to rise and create a small, mountain-like island about 600 meters (yards) off Pakistan’s Gwadar coastline in the Arabian Sea.

Television channels showed images of a stretch of rocky terrain rising above the sea level, with a crowd of bewildered people gathering on the shore to witness the rare phenomenon.”

A little gallows humor ; Osama Bin Laden Death Jokes from Twitter

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2011 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI


‘I bet Bin Laden regrets allowing his iPhone app to “use his current location”.’

“Mrs. Bin Laden just updated her Facebook status to single.”

“Bin Laden shouldn’t have used his real address for his PSN account.”

“They should have captured Bin Laden alive and made him continually go through airport security for the rest of his life.”

“RIP Osama bin Laden, World Hide and Go Seek Champion (2001-2011)”

“The 72 virgins all have headaches tonight.”

“At least he got to see the royal wedding before he went out.”

“This is good news for the other guys on the top 10 wanted list — finally they get to move up in the rankings.”

“Osama dead: Donald Trump demands the long-form death certificate.”

“So Osama Bin Laden is dead… Amazing what the Americans can do when the Playstation Network is down.”

“God will pass judgment; the US Military simply arranged the meeting!”

“Osama corpse into ocean + BP oil spill + Fukushima radiation = Zombie Terrorist.”


“I bet Osama Bin Laden accidentally hit the “Add your location” button during his last tweet.”

“Am I traveling with anyone? Just my human shield over there.”

“The awkward thing about Osama is that nobody is telling you that Dora the Explorer was the one who finally found him…”

“Can they make a Call of Duty Map of Osama in his compound?”

Q: “What color were Osama’s eyes?” A: “Blue. One blew this way, one blew that way.”

“Osama Bin Laden was RIP (Resting in Pakistan)”

“It seems to me, you lived your life like a sandal in the bin.”

“Now that Osama is buried at sea, is it socially acceptable to pee in the water while swimming?”

British – “So apparently they DO take the Bins out on bank holidays!”

“BREAKING: Osama bin Laden to run against Hitler for mayor of hell.”

“BREAKING: Osama been killed by an elite killing force … in other news Chuck Norris just returned home from his trip to Pakistan.”

Bin Laden’s final words: “I need a house full of Navy SEALs like I need a hole in my head.”

Osama bin Laden was apparently shot twice in the face. It looks like Dick Cheney may have been involved.
