Making The World Safer And More Secure Through The Iran Nuclear Deal

In his four and a half minute speech, President Barack Obama said: “We have before us a historic opportunity to pursue a safer, more secure world for our children. It may not come around again in our lifetime.” The President is referring to the Iran Nuclear Deal.

After extensive talks in Vienna, a 159-page agreement has been finalized between 6 world powers and Iran that closes Iran’s pathway to nuclear weapons; allows for an unprecedented 24/7 monitoring of key nuclear facilities; and provides international inspectors with access to Iran’s nuclear supply chain. Once Iran violates the deal, sanctions will immediately be in place.

However, before the deal can be implemented, it has to pass through Congress and Obama expects a lot of overheated and dishonest arguments in the weeks ahead. Last Saturday, during his weekly address Obama seized on the opportunity to seek support from voters. This is prior to the congressional vote on the deal and against the backdrop of a Republican-led opposition.

The deal is unlikely to be defeated in Congress but it is already expected that many Republicans will attempt to do so. Joe Boehner, the speaker of the House thinks that it is a bad deal and plans to do everything to stop the deal from pushing through. On the other hand, Bob Corker who is the Republican chair of the Senate foreign relations committee said that he will hold hearings so that everyone in Congress will understand what they are voting for.

Bob Corker has told reporters that those who believe that the deal is going to keep Iran from getting a nuclear weapon will vote for it. Those who think that the world will not be a safer place and the deal can pave a way for a nuclear weapon will surely vote against it.

Republican candidates for the presidential elections in 2016 say that the deal will be remembered as America’s worst diplomatic failure; however, Democratic frontrunner Hilary Clinton supports the deal to help prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. Obama does not shy away from criticism and believes in tough, honest and serious debates. He wants the whole world to see a leadership that welcomes scrutiny.

The Waning Demand For Paper-Based Maps

The Waning Demand For Paper-Based Maps

Most individuals with smartphones can easily download satellite-based navigation maps to assist them with directions when travelling particularly in a strange place. This technological innovation has affected the demand for paper maps that used to be a traditional tool for travellers. In Arkansas, the state’s Highway and Transportation Department has recently announced that it is cutting its annual production of paper maps by a half or 500,000 that will be updated every 2 years instead of yearly.

Arkansas has bowed down to the reality that people now prefer digital maps instead of the usual paper maps particularly since out of the 1 million maps that were printed last 2014, about 300,000 pieces were still left. The state’s geographic information system and mapping section is sad about the developments but technology has certainly overtaken the art of looking at a paper-generated map.

Printed versions of the Arkansas’s paper-based maps include detailed country maps, city maps, route maps and maps that give people an indication of traffic volumes. These maps are computer-generated and can be accessed through the department’s website or through state tourism centers around Arkansas. Paper maps are often part of a tourist’s vacation travel kit to help motorists.

A decade ago, demand for paper-based maps was so great that out of 1.4 million printed copies, only about 30,000 were left. There were an unusual number of requests from schools. Motorists were also given their individual copy to aid a survey done by contractors. In 2011, which was the banner year of the paper-based maps, only 50,000 copies were left from the 1 million that was printed because residents of the state scrambled to get their hands on information on detours around high waters. GPS certainly will not tell if there is flooding in a certain area.

Maps have certainly played a big role in motorist’s lives throughout the years. Another type of map that has gained favorable attention is Illustrated Maps that was quite popular for cities, campuses, parks and resorts. Unlike traditional paper-based maps that provided directions, Illustrated Maps gave people a more interesting and exciting option because of its detailed topographic information.

It was in December last 2015 that news about a new TMNT game had first surfaced. Fans have immediately anticipated the announcement of the new game when rumours started circulating after a leak in Australia’s Classification Board rating systems gave the game an “M” rating. This could be referred to as the equivalent of the “T” in North America, specifically the United States’ Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB).

Activision was immediately tied to the new TMNT game but along with the known game publisher, it was also noted that PlatinumGames also had a listing on the ratings page as an author. While Activision didn’t make an immediate announcement following that leak, it was soon revealed that both Activision and PlatinumGames have been working on a new TMNT game which is now titled TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan.

Platinum and Activision had previously worked together in two other games that were well received namely The Legend of Korra and Transformers: Devastation. Now, TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan is set to be released on May 24, 2016. The game costs about $49.99 and will feature a bundle only edition containing a Mutants in Manhattan Rock ‘n Roll Pack and a Samurai Pack.

TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan will be a slash and hack game and the site for the battle will be in the streets, subways and the sewers. This new game is perfect for all ages and even kids may be able to play it.

TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan will be released for Xbox One, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and 4 and even on Windows PC. Larry Hryb of Xbox Live announced that gamers would be able to pre-order the game early for the Xbox One so that means that TMNT fans can now begin to pre-order the game.

If you have grown up watching and knowing about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, then this is definitely the perfect game for you to play.

Find A Great Printing Company With These Helpful Tips

With so many printing companies out there today, both traditional and digital, finding the right printing company can be quite a task.

Ferrari 488 GTB In The United Arab Emirates

When Ferrari 488 GTB was released, dealers were given long waiting lists. Instead of having a test car, dealers only enjoyed the car for a few hours. Ferrari 488 GTB is actually a revolutionary car since it is one of first turbocharged models for decades. The massive air intakes up front and along the sides were not simply placed to serve as a decoration; they feed necessary air to the engine as well as provide enough down force to negate the use of a rear wing.

It is difficult for an agent to make a review of Ferrari 488 GTB after a very brief introduction to the super car but it is very clear that the vehicle can hold two people comfortably and allow them to get in and out of the car easily. There is enough storage area for stuff and it is pretty easy to figure out that buttons are used to set up the phone or flash the headlights.

Every inch of the cabin is covered in matte leather with padded arm rests and dash tops. For passionate fans, the drive is the most important. How does it drive? Brilliantly with a stability that does not make you feel that you are going too fast. The new 3.9 liter twin-turbo V8 produces a whopping 98 horses which is more than Ferrari Italia’s naturally aspirated engine. You will not expect it to scream at 9,000 rpm like the 458 does but it revs to 8,000 rpm with that grunt-sounding exhaust note and a whole lot of unfiltered turbo swooshing. It makes that unmistakable Ferrari sound.

Ferrari 488 GTB is ridiculously fast but it is not scary when you hit the high speeds by mistake. You can end up doing 220kph in just a few seconds which means being mindful of speed limits. Sales of Ferrari 488 UAE have been rising because great efforts have been invested on its electronic controls to ensure performance and power. Many dealerships represent the Ferrari brand in the Middle East because they want the exclusivity of the brand. There is a lot of passion in the Middle East region for Ferraris prticulalry the latest models.

The Power Of Kale For Skin Care

The Power Of Kale For Skin Care

Kale is considered as one of the world’s healthiest and most nutritious vegetables. You can see kale being used at the salad bar of Pizza Hut because of its nutritional benefits. Kale is also the trendiest super ingredient in skincare products at the moment. If you will take a look at Youth to the People, kale is the piece de resistance of their new botanically-driven brand.

Youth to the People started as a family affair from the efforts of cousins Joe Cloyes and Greg Gonzales. As kids, the cousins grew up learning the trade from their grandmother who owned beauty salons during the 60’s and 70’s before she launched her own line of skincare products. For the cousins, skincare was a way of life particularly since they spent their childhood running around their grandma’s office and beauty salons. The cousins learned everything about skincare ingredients, plant extracts, essential oils and different skin types at a very early age. This is surprising because most 10 year olds hardly know anything about the advantages of cleansing oils and exfoliation.

The cousins have always been interested in nutrition but when juice shops offering cold-pressed fruits and vegetables started popping up in California, they thought of more efficient ways to get necessary vitamins and antioxidants. The cousins eventually made the leap to cold pressed extracts for skincare products by developing an age prevention cleanser, brighten serum and moisturizer packed with nutritional and anti-aging properties.

If you have never heard of kale, it is a vegetable packed with Vitamins A, B, C and K as well as antioxidants and phytonutrients. What are the benefits of kale on the skin? The leafy green vegetable tightens pores, reduces dark circles, increases cell turnover, promotes collagen production, prevents damage from free radicals and detoxifies the skin.

Through zk’in Skin Care Products, you can say goodbye to wrinkles. A line smoothing serum that contains a newly researched extract from a South American plant has been tested to smoothen the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles. The skincare product has also been dermatologically tested and approved as a non-irritant to keep you honestly beautiful.
