English/Nat Despite the refusal of some nations to sign the treaty outlawing landmines, the U-N on Tuesday said the groundswell of support for the ban would draw them in eventually. About 120 nations have sent delegates to sign the historic treaty starting on Wednesday. But several major producers and users of landmines - including the United States, China and Russia - are sending only observers and will not sign. In the Canadian capital of Ottawa, U-N Secretary-General Kofi Annan paid a visit to his host, Prime Minister Jean Chretien. Annan lamented the refusal of Russia, China and the United States to join more than 120 nations banning the production, sale and deployment of landmines. The treaty also aims to remove existing minefields and help treat victims of landmines...
Flat Earth • 2017 • Chippy The Chipmunk continues his study of Gleason's map & 402 page book. Chippy originally thought Gleason's flat earth map is an 'equidistant' map, but it's actually an Arctic Polar Azimuthal Projection (see p. 402 diagram 43). Chippy is learning as he goes & is finding Gleason's material to be rather impressive (book, map, & time-chart patent). Chippy continues to kick every tire & turn over every stone; all in hopes of uncovering how we've all been deceived for so long. Gleason's body of work certainly warrants a much closer look & Chippy finds it suspicious how so many in the 'flat earth' community are trying to debunk Gleason's map (seemingly w/out having bothered to read his 402 page book: "Is the Bible From Heaven? Is the Earth a Globe?"). Download the book...

English/Nat Delegates who made history by signing a treaty banning landmines ended the Ottawa conference on Thursday with pledges to help fund mine-clearance programmes. But the Canadian foreign minister, a key figure in rallying support for the ban, said during the closing session of the conference that the biggest challenges were still ahead. These include raising hundreds of millions of dollars to help poor nations remove mines, ensuring that the treaty is enforced and convincing major holdouts - such as China, Russia and the United States - to join the 121 nations that have endorsed the plan. In the frozen Canadian capital, the will of an international coalition of governments, humanitarian organisations and activists made history this week. A global treaty to ban and d...
