Israel is however, denying it. It is all mind and propaganda games by the parties.
No fewer than a thousand members of separatist group Movement of Actualization Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) were detained on Tuesday by security authorities in Nsukka.
The members – wearing Biafra uniforms and caps emblazoned with the Biafra flag – were marching towards Nsukka town to celebrate 17 years of the movement, when they were intercepted at Ede-Oballa, about two kilometers to Nsukka by combined team of soldiers and police.
Members, comprising men, women, the aged and the young, were later freed and directed to go home after negotiation between security and leaders of the movement.
Speaking with newsmen, the Zonal Leader of Enugu senatorial zone of MASSOB Mr. James Omeke, said the movement was celebrating the 17 year anniversary of the movement under the leadership of Chief Ralph Uwazurike.
“When they stopped us, our members numbering about 1000 were searched and no arms…

It’s not just Hillary Clinton’s security detail that is helping to hold up the Democratic presidential nominee.
Following her collapse at a September 11th memorial event on Sunday, mainstream media outlets have rushed to Clinton’s defense.
Even after a Clinton physician acknowledged that she had pneumonia, CNN dismissed months of concern regarding Clinton’s health and well-being as a “conservative conspiracy.”
And the Clinton campaign tried to write off the pneumonia as no big deal, and claimed that Clinton would be healthy as a horse soon.
But given Clinton’s medical history, there’s no way anyone should be making that claim. Pneumonia is, in fact, especially dangerous for Clinton — and nobody in the media is talking about it.
Clinton has a well-known history of blood clots, and getting pneumonia is like throwing gasoline on that fire.

Like its cousin the five-paragraph essay, the research paper shares a serious flaw: they are both artificial forms found mostly in formal schooling (and primarily in K-12) that teach more about compliance than about writing.
A related problem with the middle and high school research paper assignment is “teaching MLA.” Last fall, after several weeks of investigating how my first-year students had been taught to write and cite, one student fumed uncontrollably in class that her high school teacher had demanded they learn MLA “because everyone uses MLA in college.”
If, then, we begin to view the teaching of writing throughout K-12, into undergraduate and graduate school, and then into the so-called real world, we as teachers of writing must embrace more authentic concepts of writing as well as citation—while also providing students with writing experiences that prepare them for both disciplinary writing throughout college and any writing as scholars…

It is now obvious that the major banks have gone rogue. The latest Wall Street scandal shows that 5,800 Wells Fargo employees engaged in identity theft by knowingly setting up ghost accounts not only to bolster their sales commissions but to improve Wells Fargo’s bottom line. Where is the outrage? All customers should close their accounts with Wells Fargo to demonstrate that consumers demand accountability from their banks.
A decade has passed since the general public became aware of the outrageous mortgage fraud- and to date, the government at the behest of the big banks, has not done anything of real consequence to instill accountability and lawfulness in the lending and servicing industry.

In my last post, I argued that the familiar hypothesis—advanced by Gary Becker and others—that big governments are associated with more corruption is inconsistent with the available cross-country empirical evidence. In fact, though the results of different studies are not entirely consistent, the weight of the evidence seems to suggest that (controlling for other possible correlates), countries that have larger governments—defined primarily as those that have higher levels of government spending as a percentage of GDP—have lower levels of perceived corruption, as measured by the familiar indexes, such as Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI). Again, there are some questions about the robustness of this negative correlation—some studies find that it is statistically significant, while others do not—but there’s enough supporting evidence that I think it’s fair to (tentatively) treat this correlation as genuine.
Perhaps in hindsight this shouldn’t be so surprising. Putting aside multiple regression and other fancy…
