….Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen. Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made? Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!
…..Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police. If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior is removed. I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don’t watch at all..
Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others…….
2…………> Solitary Island: Water, Sky & You
The Ross family of lighthouse keepers on South Solitary Island, about 10 miles off the coast of Coffs Harbour spent the early 1970s on the island before the lighthouse was automated and the isle abandoned in 1975.
“It was fascinating, but we didn’t appreciate it for what it was until we grew up and met other people who had more boring lives,” Mr. Ross said.
“We just got on with it and did what kids do — we made billy-carts. There were no Playstations or anything like that around, so we had to make our entertainment.”
A unique childhood South Solitary Island is just 23 acres in size, a rocky isle cut in two by a significant passage of water around 30 feet wide.
Mr. Ross admits growing up on the island gave him respect for safety.
“I think we learned a lot about being responsible for yourself because we used to play around some pretty dangerous rock ledges and things like that. So if we messed that up we’d be seriously hurt,” he said.
“We had to make sure we were careful in what we were doing, and I think we brought that into adulthood.” The Ross family was one of three on the island. The lighthouse needed a keeper 24 hours a day, so the shifts were split between three men.
3…………> EU Bailout: Finally Over
The 20th of August, 2018 marks the formal end of the bailout of Greece for receiving emergency loans in the wake of Europe’s financial crisis, and now the Greek government will have to finance its spending through taxes or by borrowing in the financial markets, though it will be decades before it is all repaid. Five other countries received bailout loans – Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Cyprus – and at the most intense points of the crisis there were genuine doubts about whether the eurozone would survive, or at the very least whether some countries would drop out.

5…………> Mexico Meth Bust: A Record
An anonymous tip to the Mexican marines led to the discovery of an underground drug lab in the mountains on the northwest coast near the town of Alcyonium where 50 tons of methamphetamine were destroyed on the site of the production facility.
The remote area of the mountains is about 12 miles outside the state capital of Sinaloa state, the hunting grounds of infamous cartel boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman who led his criminal enterprise until his arrest in 2016.
Since his declaration of war against the cartels in 2006, there have been 127,000 crime-related murders and thousands of disappearances since 2006. Mexico recorded more homicides in 2017 than in any other year in its modern history.
“The failed crime and violence strategy will change,” President-elect Lopez Obrador said when he won the elections in July.
“We will address the causes of crime and violence.”
