 By BFP Staff Tuesday, September 16, 2014

By Nick Cunningham of Oilprice.com
A recent report from Greenpeace found that China’s coal consumption declined in the first half of this year and new Chinese government data suggests that the country’s coal imports have dropped. Estimates indicate that by the end of the year, China’s coal imports could be 8 percent below 2013 levels.
China imported 18.86 million tonnes of coal in August, the lowest level since September 2012.

Colombia’s National Beauties
 By BFP Staff Saturday, September 13, 2014

By: Daniel Otero
You see, I like women from all over the world and the women that always have conquered me in my male weakness have been those from Colombia .  Reading those sexually charged novels by Mario Vargas Llosa is still good, but when it comes to men like Gabriel ‘Gabo’ Garcia Marquez (1927 – 2014) and Jorge Franco (Colombian authors) which described better the body of Colombian women to perfection.  And possibly a female reading between these lines is telling herself, “Oh my God, another male chauvinist-pig talking about women!” But I’ve never been politically correct and it’s not only that, it is Colombian women, people!

Erdogan Needs A Spasm Of Lucidity
 By BFP Staff Thursday, September 11, 2014

By Dr. Alon Ben-Meir
The ascendancy of Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the presidency places Turkey on a trajectory that could usher in a new era unlike any other since the founding of the Turkish Republic in 1923 by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. During his tenure as Prime Minister, Erdogan was admired in and outside the country for his remarkable socioeconomic achievements, yet at the same time intensely criticized for his egocentricity, crude prejudices, and a misguided foreign policy that may now haunt him as President unless he changes course.

Islamic State’s Ultimate Goal: Saudi Arabia’s Oil Wells
 By BFP Staff Thursday, September 11, 2014

By Claude Salhani of Oilprice.com
For the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, Syria and Iraq were a good place to start their campaign, but in order to survive and prosper it knew from the outset that it had no choice but to set its sights on the ultimate prize: the oil fields of Saudi Arabia.
It is in that direction that the battle for control of the world’s largest oil fields is currently heading.

American Women: What happened to their femininity?
 By BFP Staff Saturday, September 6, 2014

By: Daniel Otero
Sitting down for a cup of coffee on my last visit Stateside, I was patiently waiting for a friend. When four women sat near me, the conversation soon turned to men…  By their expressions and mannerisms, some were not married or had come from broken relationships! Who could blame them?  As they complained about men, everything was justified, till the topic completely turned me off.  Everything got out of hand!  These females were in the 30-something category, attractive, professionals [maybe], fairly intelligent and it was what came out of their mouths that turned back the clock on 100 or so years on feminism.  Looking more like a scene from “Sex and the City”…

Vitamin C: If It’s Good For Gorillas Why Not Us
 By Dr. Gifford Jones  Thursday, October 21, 2010

Are you headed for a heart attack because of “marginal scurvy”, a condition resulting from a lack of vitamin C? Moreover, if vitamin C is sound medicine for gorillas, why isn’t it good for us? And in the 16th century, why did the ship’s cat survive long sea voyages when its sailors died from scurvy?

Today, we know that sailors of old, lacking vitamin C, died of this preventable disease. A shortage of fresh fruit in their diet resulted in degeneration of blood vessels, hemorrhage and death.

Networked Devices Spread Your Photos, Music Around
 By Jim Bray  Thursday, December 16, 2010

Media servers are becoming popular in this age of wireless home networks, delivering audio and video content from a computer or the Internet to whatever device you may want to use, within reason.

I usually use such devices to stream music, because most of the videos I watch are on Blu-ray and no matter how much hype you hear about downloads taking over, there are still bandwidth and file compatibility issues. I admit reluctantly to accessing YouTube and its ilk for some casual viewing sometimes, but media servers are increasingly playing back music in other rooms of my house.
