Agenda 21: Conspiracy or Sustainability?
There is much information and misinformation on this topic. The perspectives range from the foundation of a totalitarian one world government, to blueprints for global depopulation, to plain old environmentalism. Most either revile it as a great horror or have not heard of it.

Passengers Cell Phones Still Ringing - Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370
"According to China.org.cn, 19 families of those missing have signed a joint statement confirming that their calls connected to their loved ones but that they rang out."
And here's the explanation on CNN - "When phones are disabled or turned off -- which would presumably happen after a plane crash -- calls to those cell phones don't ring, but go directly to voice mail. Friends and loved ones of the missing passengers, however, reported ringing when they called. Technology industry analyst Jeff Kagan says a call would first connect to a network before trying to find the end user, and the ringing sound callers hear masks the silence they would otherwise hear while waiting for the connection to be made. "If it doesn't find the phone after a few minutes, after a few rings, then typically, it disconnects, and that's what's happening," he said."
There's more detail in the article links below.

Major Oil Refinery in Tatarstan, Russia On Fire - Interesting Timing?
Could this be industrial sabotage?
Or just a co-incidence?
Welcome to the future! Unfortunately, this is not the future of hover-boards whizzing down sidewalks, but rather the future where seeing should by no means be believing. In this future, even hoaxers with intermediate level skills on standard desktops can produce convincing misinformation. When big budget production facilities step into the game, how do we know what's real and what isn't?
It's all fun and games, until... It isn't.

A Different Perspective on the Crisis in Ukraine
The article below differs significantly from the perspective of most US & UK media.
Have US and European interests been heavily influencing the events in Ukraine?
Is Russia just defending its self from an onslaught of US sponsored color revolutionaries?
The argument seems plausible. It seems logical that, following the collapse of the Soviet Union, Western powers would work actively to sow divisions in the former Soviet Block to further isolate Russia.
What are your thoughts?
What evidence can you find to support or refute the possibility that Western Powers have largely instigated the situation in Ukraine?

In the first article below, the writer Deborah West provides an overview of the work of Dr. Semir Osmanagich in the Bosnian Archaeology Park (i.e. Bosnian Pyramids).
The second article is Wikipedia essentially denying that the formations could possibly be anything but natural formations.
The third link is to a documentary on the topic.
Are the Bosnian Pyramids the remnants of an advanced ancient civilization or naturally occurring hills with somewhat flat sides?
