A great way to begin the day. Mindfulness. In our school, M. Frédéric Pannetier introduced us to a similar technique in some of the classes. It will be great to do it again.

Kuddos to Bard Canning, the producer of this amazing footage. I quote his comment: "Working frame-by-frame, it took me four weeks to produce this video. It was a labor of love. You can support my efforts with a donation or just let me know that you enjoyed it. I think it's wonderful that everyone on Earth has a chance to see this amazing footage from Mars :" SOOOOO TRUE! ENJOY these precious minutes.

No extradition to the U.S. for Gary McKinnon, a U.K. citizen. he was investigating the UFO subject from his mother's bedroom computer when he hacked into the US department computers. It took the US some time to detect the security breach, (Gary must be some hacker!)but when they did, they immediately required his extradition. Since then, his family and many people including my proud self have been fighting to avoid extradition and after ten exacting years,the right decision was taken. Theresa May is a prominent Conservative party member and has been appointed UK's Home Secretary since May 2012. The Home Office is a Ministerial department of the Government of the United Kingdom, responsible for immigration, security, and law and order. As such it is responsible for the police, UK Border Agency, and the Security Service (MI5). It is also in charge of government policy on security-related issues such as drugs, counter-terrorism, and ID cards.
