    More statistics from the disUnited States are making the news.
    The stock markets in New York have had the biggest drop since the Great Depression,
    what is optimistically being called a proper correction, bursting an artificial real estate bubble.
    The Great Depression, which happened very quickly, was only done by people using pens and paper.
    Being able to computer will allow a more gradual manipulation and gradation of financial output,
    so one drop that's almost as big really means nothing, when following drops all add up.

    In Syria, American news displaying this kind of action for the first time,
    it's said that the latest American bombardment against Syrian forces supported by Russia,
    have killed Russian personnel, when America and Russia have an agreement to avoid that.
    Some commentators are saying that's a prelude to America stepping on Russian toes,
    when they attack North Korea.
    And North Korea is really starting to get to the American public.
    The totally out there, famously flaming gay American skating star,
    refused to meet or take a Tweet from the visiting American Vice-President.
    The skater referenced the Vice-Presidents' support of an organization,
    that advocates medical cures and surgery to cure homosexuality.
    When the entire stadium rose to salute and applaud the North Korean athletes,
    the Vice-President was the only person to remain seated.
    It's a good thing he wasn't doing that during an NFL football game,
    or President Donald Trump wouldn't have liked that.

    What do you call a soldier who's been exposed to mustard gas and pepper spray.
    A well-seasoned veteran.

    I'd like to share some Gaelic, and you can say Scottish, Proper English.
    Birds go tweet tweet. We all know that. They don't re-tweet.
    When English people during the Victorian Era, also known as the Opium Era,
    held up a hand in front of their mouths to make derogatory noises,
    that was called tittering.
    If you were doing that behind someone's back, or coming from behind a bush,
    that was called twittering, half-way between titter and tweet.

    This is inspiring a song lyric update.
    "Don't she tweet, as she's scrolling down the street,
    as I ask you very confidentially, don't she tweet.
    She re-tweets, with a device that's wireless,
    as I find her IP user address, she re-tweets".

    More horror from America, this time Florida, is making the news.
    17 people were killed in the latest schoolyard serial killing.
    As the article in the Toronto Star noted,
    it's not even half-way through February, and this is serial killing number 18.

    In piano related events,
    it has always been a local myth that big turtles would swim to an inland pond,
    that locals describe as being kind of an inland sea, depending on the tide.
    A leatherback turtle, if I remember, weighing over 365 kilograms,
    was found dead onshore, said to look emaciated.
    They think he followed some jellyfish, his favorite food, and couldn't find his way back out.
    This turtle was said to be the size of a piano.

    There was no report if any fishing lines or net strands were taut enough to be tune-able.
    Some people think these turtles can live to be 500 or 700 years old.

    More extreme statistics are freezing up more than weak computer systems.
    The northernmost weather station in the world, Cape Morris Jessup, on the northern tip of Greenland,
    has, for the first time, reported more than 24 hours above freezing, 25C above normal.
    This was reported by the Danish Meteorological Institute.

    And just because I like living my life in stereo, coming at you from both sides,
    in Itqlaguik, in northern Alaska, previously known as Barrow,
    they recorded a high of -1C, 22C above normal.
    The decline of sea ice that allows the transporting of warmer southern heat is responsible.
    David Thoreson, arctic photographer, was quoted as saying,
    "It's amazing to watch this unfold. This is the first time I've been out in a boat this time of year".

    What is being described as a new social phenomena in the disUnited States,
    students becoming activists who call themselves "the serial killer generation",
    has spread through many states, students lying down as the dead in protest.
    This has created responses from different levels of government,
    and President Donald Trump was motivated enough to say that schools need more guns.
    He said "when bad people have guns, good people should have guns too".
    He wants to see teachers with guns and former military with guns as security.

    Almost every article mentions the concerns of everyone from citizens to legislators,
    who say people should not be able to shop at stores to buy weapons of war,
    when the only requirement is having the cash to purchase them.

    I just saw a movie titled "24 Hours" starring Ben Affleck.
    It showed ex-American military working in Africa for a "contracting" corporation,
    sending assassins for hire around the world, showing many military protocols and payments.
    After being killed by the security of an intended victim,
    Ben Affleck is brought back to life by a bizarre medical treatment,
    so he can be questioned about what he knew before he was killed.
    He was told what he remembered was useful, and that now he had just 24 hours to live.
    As he escapes to make the last day of his life meaningful,
    to find the co-worker who killed his wife and child, and who now is going for his grandfather,
    he discovers his victim was an informant who wanted to tell Interpol about disappearing Africans.
    Hundreds of people disappeared, and were being used for medical experiments that are crimes against humanity.
    Mass graves were dug with bodies napalmed to hide any surgical procedures.
    At the end of the movie, it said this was based on a true story.

    In Los Angeles and other major cities in California,
    law enforcement now say they have extended the window for reviving dead people.
    This means the former time of applying revival methods at thirty minutes or less,
    has now become forty-five minutes or less.
    I remind you this is institutional information for taxpayers as publicized by those in authority.

    As far as the recent Korean Olympics goes,
    this is the most medal counts for Canada at any winter games.
    I'm seeing the North Korean involvement as generating the most and most positive news,
    with the equipment failure that resulted in a French skating duo skating with an exposed breast,
    being second for world interest.
    However, despite the global viewings and controversy and deletions and media back-tracking,
    no American news source described this as being like the French symbol for liberty, truth and justice.
    That's a woman charging forward like a sword carrying warrior with one breast bared.
    As for riffing off a traditional Francais rhyme...
    my dancers danced at both ends, and gave off a wondrous sight,
    but oh my friends, and oh my foes, against an empire we all must fight.

    England, and as they like to include themselves as, Britain,
    is undergoing record-breaking snow-storms and cold temperatures,
    and being cold is so English and British.
    Major industries are being asked to shut down so residential gas consumers can stay warm.
    If this sounds like a modern version of war-time rationing,
    you can say there's a bit of the Dark Ages coming back to compliment this in a southern way.
    Measles, and the number of people dying from measles, is setting new modern records.
    The highest percentage of people dying, eighteen at the beginning, are in Romania,
    but Italy is the worst, 88% of all Italians now having measles.

    Health news from America is also changing, setting a new presidential record.
    President Donald Trump, as they say, is just one pound away from being declared officially obese.
    As if. He's so vain he'd probably get the White House doctor disappeared before he'd admit that.
    They say he's taken medical advice seriously, not eating his usual meals.
    That's two Big Macs, two fillet of fish burgers and a big chocolate milkshake.

    The one person he always led around on his arm to make him look good,
    having a choice of wife,
    is now having her American citizenship questioned as the former foreign model she was.
    President Donald Trump is always criticizing foreigner who become American citizens,
    for using that to bring their families in to become American citizens, calling that "chain migration".
    Now White House employees are saying his wife is doing that to bring in her mother and father.
    President Donald Trumps' one cousin, who has White House clearance and national security protocols,
    is now having all that taken away, because of his foreign financial involvements with "hostile countries".

    If you can say one thing about all this new political fat in the President Donald Trump White House,
    it's costing Americans more by the pound than what the English pay to keep their country on the ground.

    There was a precedent setting event in Hamilton, Ontario, two days ago.
    Hamilton is a one hour drive up from the American border at Niagara Falls.

    What is estimated as a group of twenty people went on a destructive rampage.
    They carried a big banner, over ten feet long and five feet high,
    that said "We are the ungovernable", and went around smashing store and car windows,
    doing an estimated $100,000 worth of damage.
    The security guard at the library knew a lot about this group, having a name I can't spell.
    He said they go to Conservative Party functions and throw balloons full of urine at members,
    and do other disruptive things, saying they probably get paid to do that.
    There was an evening function hosted by this anarchistic group, for their members only,
    that night, and the doorman wouldn't let reporters in.
    People are quoted as saying this isn't America, and American style politics shouldn't be here.

    They're lucky to be in Hamilton, not Welland.

    Steady news reports about America are saying the biggest wave of protest since the Viet Nam war,
    is not political adults, but teenagers saying they want to be the generation that changes it all,
    and that began as victims of serial killers using military assault weapons sold in public gun stores.

    A day of protest saw many schools letting students out to stand outside as quiet demonstrators.
    Some schools told students if they went outside they would be expelled,
    and some schools locked students in so they couldn't get outside.
    Over 2,000 students went to the White House and put their pairs of shoes on the front lawn,
    to show how many of them have been killed in schools in the last few years.

    Another day, thousands of students met in front of the White House,
    and stood there with their backs turned to it, saying that's how the White House treats them.

    President Donald Trump is now being reported as standing up to the NRA,
    saying the age to buy weapons should be 21, not 18,
    and maybe a background check would be a good thing before weapons are sold.
    He's also being reported as saying one thing, but doing the opposite.
    He called a senator a wimp for bending over backwards in public for the NRA,
    saying they would give him the money anyway.
    News reports also say his "trade war" and "tariffs" is a cover-up for these student protests.

    A police trained firearms expert, a local guard volunteer, who is a high school teacher,
    took out a revolver at the front of the class to demonstrate how guns can be safe.
    This, in response to President Trump saying teachers and janitors should carry guns as security.
    He pointed it to the ceiling to demonstrate that it wasn't loaded and pulled the trigger,
    and it went off, and bullet splinters were imbedded in the neck of a student.
    National news said right away he was trying to get publicity when it was only falling ceiling debris,
    but that changed when his medical report said it was metal from the bullet.

    More articles are saying some people think there should be a two week waiting time,
    calling it a cooling off period, so people who want to kill someone can calm down.
    Some articles say that only 4% of Americans are the ones who own all the guns,
    but long-time statistics say one in four Americans owns a gun.
    A new American documentary movie is now saying Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone as a shooter,
    when President John Kennedy was assassinated.

    The student who was the shooter in Florida wants to plead guilty right away to avoid the death penalty.
    Local officials say they don't want to make that deal, and his trial could be a public wake-up call.
    The Police Chief says he is sickened in his heart, after security camera footage showed,
    that the police officer who first showed up, didn't go inside and hid behind a dumpster bin,
    getting on his cell phone to call it in, hiding with a school employee.
    The Chief said his first responsibility as a policeman was to confront the gunman,
    and if that had happened, how many lives could have been saved.

    And don't let the fact that Americans not dropping a nuclear bomb is a good thing.
    They have non-nuclear weapons that not only have the same devastating power,
    they're better, because there is no radiation and Americans can move in right away.
