This has nice maps with the voting districts on them as well as the state electoral maps.

And for even more recent news: the 2010 election results
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_...lections,_2010
The map of the House of Representatives should be interesting.

These maps and insight are kind of interesting. I like to see how peoples opinions and favour sway. I like maps so I can stare at these things for minutes, even if I am not interested in the topic.

I think I remember seeing the 2008 election map at school when everyone was hyped up about who they will choose. Seems the democrat's popularity in the 2010 election has seriously decreased.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

It seems a South Korean naval operation sucessfully retook a partially South Korean crewed ship that had been hijacked by pirates.

John Mohammed Butt: The hippy who became an imam

I never expected the words Hippy and Iman in the same sentence.

I never thought it would be possible... The world really does have surprising things in store if this was manageable..

And again the same sad story appears: the extremist nutcases want to silence him and what he stands for.

Don't you get it, that Hippy is an Iman! Those are two things you never expected to mix that well.

The Pirates don't give a damm of their target's nationality or religion, all they see is fine booty to be captured.

They are part of the international anti-piracy force sent to the GOA. Singapore also sent an LST with a platoon of Commando-NDUSWG-ADF combined task force, but they never saw any action.

There are known to be a number of Malays in the ADF. The Somalian pirates didn't give a shit anyway. Besides, I have read somewhere that each pirate attack of 2 skiffs and crew costs around US$20,000, and it is a hit-or-miss thing.

its a legal commission composed of several judges and law professors (i actually studied under one of them)
the head of the commission was a former member of the supreme court.
and it supervised by two external observers.
1)Canada's former chief military prosecutor.
2)a noble prize winning professor and member of the house of lords.

the "fuss" isn't a factor.
and how the results make them look isn't a factor either.
