Secret US Embassy Cables

Wikileaks began on Sunday November 28th publishing 251,287 leaked United States embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain. The documents will give people around the world an unprecedented insight into US Government foreign activities.

The cables, which date from 1966 up until the end of February this year, contain confidential communications between 274 embassies in countries throughout the world and the State Department in Washington DC. 15,652 of the cables are classified Secret.

The embassy cables will be released in stages over the next few months. The subject matter of these cables is of such importance, and the geographical spread so broad, that to do otherwise would not do this material justice.

The cables show the extent of US spying on its allies and the UN; turning a blind eye to corruption and human rights abuse in "client states"; backroom deals with supposedly neutral countries; lobbying for US corporations; and the measures US diplomats take to advance those who have access to them.

This document release reveals the contradictions between the US’s public persona and what it says behind closed doors – and shows that if citizens in a democracy want their governments to reflect their wishes, they should ask to see what’s going on behind the scenes.

Every American schoolchild is taught that George Washington – the country’s first President – could not tell a lie. If the administrations of his successors lived up to the same principle, today’s document flood would be a mere embarrassment. Instead, the US Government has been warning governments -- even the most corrupt -- around the world about the coming leaks and is bracing itself for the exposures.

The full set consists of 251,287 documents, comprising 261,276,536 words (seven times the size of "The Iraq War Logs", the world's previously largest classified information release).

The cables cover from 28th December 1966 to 28th February 2010 and originate from 274 embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions.

301....Keeping Warm

Well hello out there! It has been awhile. I don’t think I’ve ever been away from my little blog for as long as I have. My last post was in October 2016 …

But I’ve been thinking about this space for some time and how I feel like it’s time to come back.So here I am.

During the Christmas season, after Christmas Eve, December 26th is my very favourite day. It’s the day I sit around in my pyjamas and enjoy the quiet calm after the seasonal storm.

Don’t get me wrong. I adore Christmas and all that comes with it … including the crazy shopping, the dishes, the dry hands from washing all the dishes, the chocolate, the wine, the gatherings … it’s all wonderful.

But on the 26th, I enjoy the quiet. On the 26th, we curl up, watch movies, drink warm drinks, and enjoy the peacefulness.

Today, I took a bit of time to quietly go into the kitchen and bake something for me. A lot of butter, flour and eggs passed through our kitchen in the days leading up to Christmas. I baked my seasonal favourites and happily gave them away as gifts and tokens.

But today I baked for me and I decided to make this Almond Puff Loaf from King Arthur Flour. Buttery, soft, sweet, smothered in apricot jam and almond-flavoured icing … all the things I love.

More than anything I loved being in the quiet kitchen with the wintery light coming in from the window, quietly mixing and baking.

My photography skills are rusty to be sure and it was kind of dark when I took these pictures but what joy I got from doing this again.

I’m glad to be back.

The Danger of Smoking

Smoking is very popular among Chinese people. Nowadays, the number of smokers during teenagers is increasing. Some treat smoking as fashion and follow such bad behavior. Though many people have been educated the danger of smoking, they still do not fear it Sage Online.

It is known to all that cancer has been the NO.1 killer and the researches found that smoking for a long time will be easy to get cancer. I remembered my hometown, where people smoked a lot, especially the old generation, and they formed this bad act when they were young. Then for a time, many people died of cancer. People started to worry and they found that these people were heavy smokers massage cushion.

The sad thing is that many teenagers smoke at their young age, and they feel cool to do it. Some adults smoke to relieve their pressure. No matter what kind of reasons, the fact is that smoking not only hurt themselves, but also hurt other people, because we know that second hand smoke is harmful, too. For everybody’s health and to live a better life,

smoking should be stopped rent apartment Hong Kong.

Instant Pot Mushroom Stroganoff with Vodka

If you have an Instant Pot, please make this. Please. Pasta fans especially, this one is for you. It is an Instant Pot Mushroom Stroganoff. And, as many of you know, within the Instant Pot community, mushroom stroganoff is quite popular. You see many versions of it highlighted. Some are over-the-top decadent, others are quite healthy and hearty. This is my take, trying to land squarely in the later camp company incorporation.

My rogue move? Infuse a bit of vodka with crushed caraway seeds. Use it to spike your mushroom base as it cooks. So, a bit like penne alla vodka, but the mushroom stroganoff version. You can use whatever pasta you like (whole-grain, gluten free, chickpea, rice, etc.), I use creamy nut milk in place of actual cream, and a splash of olive oil to kick things off to start, in place of slabs of butter. You won't miss any of it. This version is vegan, vegetarian, cozy, comforting, simple, and adaptable.

Here's a quick video where you can see how this comes together. There are also more videos here if you're interested:

Serving Suggestions

I'm going to argue that you need to counter all of this brown with a good amount of green. I enjoy this with a sizable green salad, or stir some chopped kale directly into the stroganoff, as it completes cooking. I make note of the specifics down below serviced apartments hong kong.

Pasta Selection

One of the great things about this recipe is that you can use whatever pasta you like, and you can experiment with favorite shapes. I've had success with penne, and rotini, but you can absolutely use whatever you (or your family) really likes. I often reach for one of the legume/bean based pastas for weeknight pastas, and play around with more traditional (and homemade wheat noodles) on the weekends. Mix it up some, this recipe is perfect for it Sage 300 ERP.
