The Real Cause of the Afghanistan Invasion and Troop Surge
Some of the real reason behind the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 is beginning to come forward, and possibly why the failed occupation of the county continues to this day. We're aware that wars are for profit, access to resources, and for the capturing of markets. But how does this stand in relation to Afghanistan?

A revelation of the Virgin Mary which Lady Birgitta had in the city of Naples. And she directs it to Lord Bernard, the Neapolitan archbishop. The revelation reproaches those who do not instruct their servants or infidel slaves, newly converted to the faith, in that same Catholic faith and Christian law. The Virgin Mary also reproves those masters who maltreat these said servants of theirs and exasperate them beyond measure. She also threatens with great punishment fortune-tellers and enchanters and diviners and also those who support them and put faith in them. SAINT BRIDGET PATRON SAINT OF EUROPE BOOK 7 Chapter 28 FINAL PART The second kind of sin is that many men and women, with various inordinate marks of respect, keep about them and consult wicked fortune-tellers and diviners and the most evil of enchantresses. For sometimes they ask them to perform witchcraft and incantations in order that they may be able to conceive and beget children. Others require them to perform incantations and to make fetishes that will cause certain men and women, or even their temporal lords, to be enamored of them to the point of distraction and to love them with all their heart. Others, in fact, beg foreknowledge of the future from these same accursed witches. Many others ask them to give them health in their infirmities through their art of enchantment and witchcraft. All indeed who keep these same warlock diviners or enchantresses in their households and at their own expense and all who seek from such people such wicked advice and diabolic remedies, and, indeed, all those same warlock diviners and enchantresses who promise the things mentioned above - all are cursed and hateful in the sight of God. As long as they persevere in such a state and purpose, no infusion or grace of the Holy Spirit will ever descend or enter into their hearts. But nevertheless, if they repent and humbly amend their lives with the true purpose of not falling back again, they will obtain grace and mercy from my Son.' " However, when these things had thus been heard, this vision disappeared.

Inside North Korea Alien Technology More Advanced Than US. Day X Of Big War Is Set
It's imminent now, President Trump pull out over 1,000 retired pilots and returned 75 B-52 nuclear bomber and 15 nuclear submarines for 24 hours duty - the first time since the cold war ended. Each day of their operations costs Americans tens of million of dollars. Roughly a million dollar per hour. No country can afford to keep it doing it for long. What you are seeing now is this top secret device installed in Japan by US military is protecting us from North Korea missiles. Well, in our dreams. Last time North Korea shoot a single rocket over this missile defense to test it and it didn't even had time to fire. What if they launch 10 missiles or 100 for that matter? Now for the first time in history you shall see inside Super Secret North Korea Nuclear Missiles base. And you shall be amazed how technologically advanced they are. United States military intelligence and CIA were dying to see this footage. And here it is - obtained by Kryan Channel though our Russian friends. No one could ever obtain it but Kryan channel did the impossible and brought it to you. I cannot overstate the significance of what you are seeing right now. So if you thought that North Korea will be launching bottle rockets at us like people of Afghanistan did - see in awe their state of art launching facilities - they are superior to what we have in the United States. Yes, they were lucking rocket engines to reach continental US, but no more. Ukrainian Rocket Plant Yuzhmash supplied them not only with engines but with entire assembly line this year and now they constructing on average one missile a week that can reach United States. Now they have about 10 of them but in a couple of years they will have 100. They tell you that North Korea will use World War 2 era Russian tanks T-34 against third millennium United States Abrams. But what we are seeing from another top secret footage provided by our Russian friends - those are not T-34 those are Ukrainian T-84. And its 120mm cannon packs more firepower than American Abrams M1 105mm cannon. But tanks battlefields are the thing of the past. Modern tank is a dinosaur on the battle field. Those are the very different and much more deadly machines that we will have to deal in the war with North Korea. Each of them pack 100 Kiloton nuclear war head. One of those over San Francisco or Los Angeles. And have you been counting - how many they had in October 2017 in this another top secret never before seen footage we are showing you? And Fat Kim has one more trick in his pocket - Korean Subway system. It's built hundreds of feet deep inside bedrock and no weapon in US military arsenal: conventional or nuclear can penetrate it. So even if America will fire all 2,000 nukes on Korea, Kim and hundreds of thousands of his soldiers can simply wait it out in subway. Now you are seeing another top secret footage of what no westerner was ever allowed to film - North Korea last and best defense against any imaginable attack buried hundreds of feet in the bed rock. This winter Kryan channel will take you to top secret North Korea Bio facility that no westerner seen before.

MP: "Fireproof Cotton Rock" - Asbestos in China Found by Marco Polo
http://www.1000pictures.tv/ Please visit us here to order your DVDs and books. MARCO POLO: THE CHINA MYSTERY REVEALED Did Marco Polo Really Make the Journey to China? Was he the Worlds Greatest Overland Explorer or the Biggest Liar? Perhaps no land journey in human history is more famous than Marco Polos legendary 24-year trek across Asia. But was it all just a big lie? As described in his 1299 book, The Description of the World, the peripatetic Venetian merchant encountered such wonders as the singing sand dunes of Dunhuang, China, mountains of salt in present-day Afghanistan, and the glories of the Mongol court of Kublai Khan. Generations of Europeans were spellbound by Polos account, yet in recent years some scholars have questioned its authenticity. For an extensive three part series in National Geographic, veteran photographer Michael Yamashita put the famed Venetians reputation to the ultimate test using Polos own book as his travel guide for a journey in the celebrated explorers footsteps. Yamashita retraced Polos route across ten countries, from Venice through restricted areas in Iraq and war zones in Afghanistan, over the old Silk Road into China and back again by way of Southeast Asia and India. Along the way he encountered many landmarks and peoples documented in Polos book, deepening his conviction that Polos account is indeed authentic. Yamashita shares dazzling images and fascinating stories from his own journey to the East, while making a strong, personal case for the veracity of the reports of his 13th-century predecessor. Yamashitas search for Marco Polo led to this series of documentary films that first aired on the National Geographic Channel Asia. Three 30-minute episodes, shot on 16 mm film. Initial airing: March 2004, National Geographic Channel Asia. Asian TV Awards: Best Cinematography, Best Original Music Score

Japan: Reax: Norio Hattori on Taliban moves to destroy statues of Buddha
English/Nat Japan's Foreign Minister reacted to two contentious issues in Tokyo on Tuesday. Japan joined South Korea in expressing deep concern over the Taliban's decision to proceed with moves to destroy all statues of Buddha in the country. The Taliban, radical Muslims who rule most of Afghanistan, last week ordered the destruction of all pre-Islamic statues, including two giant fifth-century stone monoliths of Buddha. Disapproval has also been expressed by other Muslim nations, including the Taliban's closest ally Pakistan, pleading for the preservation of the statues. At the heart of the outcry has been the fate of two mammoth mountain carvings of Buddha, measuring 52.5 and 36 metres (175 and 120 feet) tall, hewn from a cliff face in the third and fifth century. The taller of the two statues is believed to be the world's tallest standing Buddha. The spokesman also tried to assuage fears regarding a planned new history textbook to be distributed in high schools throughout Japan. The book has lead to controversy, angering Asian nations for justifying Japan's brutal colonial rule in the region. The contents of the original drafts of the book were leaked, leading to criticism from South Korea and other Asian nations. The controversy comes as Japan in recent years has tried to improve relations with its neighbours by acknowledging its aggression early in the century, but many Asians feel its apologies have been grudging. Many Chinese and Koreans still harbour bitter feelings toward Japan for its brutal treatment. Japan ruled the Korean Peninsula as a colony from 1910 to 1945 and occupied much of China between 1931 and 1945. Some in Japan have justified the country's annexation of Korea and aggression in China and Southeast Asia as occurring in the context of European and U-S colonization. The mass-circulation Yomiuri newspaper quoted a draft of the book originally filed with the ministry last spring as saying that "Japan's annexation of the Korean Peninsula in 1910 was supported by the United States and European powers as a measure to stabilize East Asia ... the annexation was undertaken legally at that time following the fundamental rules of international relations. SOUNDBITE: (English) "In that statement we have expressed our deep concern over the information that Mullah Mohammed Omar has issued an edict to destroy all statues in Afghanistan. and it seems that even after that the destruction of the statues are continuing and if this information proves to be true, these acts are intolerable public acts." SUPER CAPTION: Norio Hattori, Spokesperson of Japanese MOFA SOUNDBITE: (English) "I would like to reiterate our strong wishes that the Taliban will lend their ears to the international voices for the preservation of the cultural heritage which belong to human kind." SUPER CAPTION: Norio Hattori, Spokesperson of Japanese MOFA SOUNDBITE: (English) "The textbook that is going to be used at the Junior high and high schools are not going to be the state-authorised text books. Those books are first of all being drafted by the private persons, or private companies, or private entities and then those text books should go through the checks, approval and checks so that there will be no factual mistakes, and so that what is written in the textbooks will be matching the level of the students who are going to use that and after that there will be an approval on each of the textbooks which are going to pass through this check process but this is again not the state which writes and which decides and which fixes and which authorises - it is not the state."

Truck drivers strolling past trucks, unable to continue journeys 7. Tracking shot of trucks parked on highway 8. Set-up shot of Mohammed Saeed 9. SOUNDBITE: (Pashtu) Mohammed Saeed, local militia "We demand that America stops its bombing and goes home. It is wrong of them to bomb." 10. Students playing cricket on highway, unable to travel highway to school 11. Student sitting on rock blockade with book 12. SOUNDBITE: (Urdu) Nazim, local official "We've removed blockades from four areas already and we're meeting with local elders. By evening, we hope to remove all the blockades." 13. Three men armed with guns sitting by wall 14. Wide shot of men jumping over rock blockade 15. Man carrying bundle of supplies on shoulders 16. Men walking up highway strewn with small rocks into distance STORYLINE: Transportation in northern Pakistan ground to a standstill on Tuesday as Islamic militants continued their blockade of the Karakoram Highway leading to China. Road blocks constructed from boulders hewn from the local mountainside straddled the Pakistani limb of the Silk Road, preventing the normal flow of supplies to the region. In the area of Thakot, some 450 kilometres (300 miles) north-east of Peshawar, blockades could be seen at regular intervals of around a kilometre, forcing truck drivers travelling along this crucial frontier artery to abandon their vehicles. Locals were forced to carry food supplies by hand, while school children took to playing cricket on the road, unable to complete their journey to school. The pro-Taliban militants, who are angry at America's bombing of Afghanistan, have taken to the hills and could be spotted with binoculars and arms, apparently ready to threaten anyone prepared to dismantle their blockades. Pakistan's Frontier Constabulary has been in negotiation with the men, but authorities are reluctant to enter this quasi-autonomous tribal area, whose ownership is disputed. In another area close to the highway near the remote town of Chilas, another group of militants has reportedly seized control of a local airstrip.

Book 4 - Chapter 70 SAINT BRIDGET PATRON SAINT OF EUROPE FINAL PART Meanwhile other people standing nearby were saying almost insultingly, 'O, Mary, your son is dead.' Others, more nobleminded, were saying: 'Lady, your son's suffering is now ended unto his eternal glory.' A little later, after his side had been opened, the lance was pulled out with blood that was brown in color showing on its tip, which meant that the lance had pierced his heart. That penetrating lance was also felt going through my own heart, and it is a wonder that my heart did not burst. Though the others were going away, I could not go away. I felt almost comforted to be able to touch his body when it was taken down from the cross, and take it in my arms, and explore his wounds and wipe away the blood. I closed his mouth with my fingers and shut his eyes as well. I could not bend his rigid arms all the way back to repose on his chest but only across his stomach. His knees could not be straightened out but pointed outward in the same position in which they had stiffened on the cross." The Mother speaks again: "Though you cannot see my Son as he exists in heaven, hear at least how he was in body on earth. He was so fair of face that no one, not even someone very sad at heart, could see him face-to-face without being cheered at his sight. The righteous were cheered with spiritual comfort, but even the wicked found relief from the sorrow of the world for as long as they looked on him. For that reason, people who were sad used to say: 'Let us go and see Mary's son and at least find some relief as long as we are there.' In his twentieth year of age, he was perfect in size and manly strength, tall for the men of medium height in those days, not fleshy but well built as to muscles and bones. His hair, eyelashes, and beard were golden brown. His beard was a palm-width in length. His forehead was neither sunken but straight. His nose was evenly built, neither too little nor too large. His eyes were so limpid that even his enemies loved to gaze on him. His lips were not too thick and were bright red. His jaw did not jut out and was not too long but attractive and of a fine length. His cheeks were nicely rounded. He was fair-skinned with traces of red, and he had straight posture. There was not a blemish on his whole body, as his scourgers can testify who saw him bound to the pillar completely naked. There were never any vermin or knots or dirt in his hair."

MP: World's Biggest Empire - its Mongolian Horses - Marco Polo's Account
http://www.1000pictures.tv/ Please visit us here to order your DVDs and books. MARCO POLO: THE CHINA MYSTERY REVEALED Did Marco Polo Really Make the Journey to China? Was he the Worlds Greatest Overland Explorer or the Biggest Liar? Perhaps no land journey in human history is more famous than Marco Polos legendary 24-year trek across Asia. But was it all just a big lie? As described in his 1299 book, The Description of the World, the peripatetic Venetian merchant encountered such wonders as the singing sand dunes of Dunhuang, China, mountains of salt in present-day Afghanistan, and the glories of the Mongol court of Kublai Khan. Generations of Europeans were spellbound by Polos account, yet in recent years some scholars have questioned its authenticity. For an extensive three part series in National Geographic, veteran photographer Michael Yamashita put the famed Venetians reputation to the ultimate test using Polos own book as his travel guide for a journey in the celebrated explorers footsteps. Yamashita retraced Polos route across ten countries, from Venice through restricted areas in Iraq and war zones in Afghanistan, over the old Silk Road into China and back again by way of Southeast Asia and India. Along the way he encountered many landmarks and peoples documented in Polos book, deepening his conviction that Polos account is indeed authentic. Yamashita shares dazzling images and fascinating stories from his own journey to the East, while making a strong, personal case for the veracity of the reports of his 13th-century predecessor. Yamashitas search for Marco Polo led to this series of documentary films that first aired on the National Geographic Channel Asia. Three 30-minute episodes, shot on 16 mm film. Initial airing: March 2004, National Geographic Channel Asia. Asian TV Awards: Best Cinematography, Best Original Music Score

When Lady Birgitta, in returning from Jerusalem, passed through the city of Naples, at the request of the lady queen and of the archbishop of the said city she prayed to God for that same city's inhabitants. And Christ, speaking to her, reproved the aforesaid inhabitants for their too many sins, showing to them the means by which sinners might reconcile themselves to him, promising them mercy if they would be reconciled and would amend their lives. He also threatens them with the severity of justice if they will not correct themselves but rather persevere in sin. Lady Birgitta published this revelation herself in the presence of the said Lord Bernard the archbishop and three masters of theology and two doctors of canon and civil law and some knights and citizens of the said city. SAINT BRIDGET PATRON SAINT OF EUROPE BOOK 7 Chapter 27 FINAL PART If anyone, therefore, amends his life in this manner, at once I will run out to meet him as a loving father runs to meet his wayward son; and I will receive him into my grace more gladly than he himself could have asked or thought. And then I will be in him, and he in me; and he shall live with me and rejoice forever. But upon him who perseveres in his sins and malice my justice shall indubitably come. For when the fisherman sees the fish in the water playing in their delight and merriment, even then he drops his hook into the sea and draws it out, catching the fish in turn and then putting them to death - not all at once, but a few at a time - until he has taken them all. This is indeed what I shall do to my enemies who persevere in sin. For I shall bring them a few at a time to the consummation of the worldly life of this age in which they take temporal and carnal delight. And at an hour that they do not believe and are living in even greater delight, I shall then snatch them away from earthly life and put them to eternal death in a place where they will nevermore see my face because they loved to do and accomplish their inordinate and corrupted will rather than perform my will and my commandments." However, after these things had thus been seen and heard, this vision disappeared.

Sweet Home Alabama | Haitian Money Pit (VICE on HBO: Season 3, Episode 7)
In 2011, the state of Alabama passed one of the harshest anti-immigrant laws in the history of the United States. Based on the hardline policy known as “self-deportation,” Alabama's HB-56 aimed to make life so miserable for illegal immigrants that they’d opt to leave the state on their own: the law granted police unprecedented powers to arrest, question, and detain suspected illegal immigrants, and even criminalized citizens who provided undocumented workers with jobs, housing, or transportation. The law created a climate of hostility that may have forced tens of thousands of immigrants to flee—and it may also have done real damage to the state’s economy. With illegal immigration roiling American communities and the upcoming presidential race, we sent Thomas Morton to Alabama to see what it would look like if undocumented workers just disappeared. Then: when a massive earthquake ravaged Haiti in 2010, killing more than 300,000 people and leaving more than 2 million survivors homeless, the international community came together to provide nearly $10 billion in relief and reconstruction aid. But where did all that money go? And why are so many Haitians still living in abominable conditions in the very places that foreigners promised to rebuild? VICE’s Vikram Gandhi goes to Port-au-Prince to follow the money trail and see whether the billions of dollars in aid are actually changing the lives for the better.

From the Stone Age to the era of the silicon chip — metals and minerals have marked the milestones of our civilization. OUT OF THE FIERY FURNACE traces the story of civilization through the exploitation of metals, minerals and energy resources. Renowned radio and BBC television commentator Michael Charlton hosts seven, one-hour programs filmed in more than 50 different parts of the world. This very unusual public television series combines the disciplines of history, science, archeology and economics in order to explore the relationship between technology and society.

EU Countries Agree on Financial Framework
From VOA Learning English, this is the Economics Report in Special English.European Union countries have struggled to find common ground as they tried to work out a budget agreement in Belgium. But this month, they agreed on the European Union's multiannual financial framework, or MMF, for the period from 2014 to 2020. The MMF sets the EU's yearly spending at about $1.3 trillion. That is one percent of the income of the EU.Members agreed to reduce total spending by more than three percent for the period. This is the first time that members have accepted cutting costs. European Council President Herman Van Rompuy spoke after the agreement was announced. He said the compromise budget might not be perfect. But, he said, it should help all EU members.German Chancellor Angela Merkel praised the long-term spending plan. She said the agreement makes policy more predictable and enables members to act in Europe's interest. Some EU leaders have been calling for greater spending controls in their home countries. They wanted the EU to show that it too is willing to cut costs.British Prime Minister David Cameron welcomed the agreement. Before the two-day meeting in Brussels, he had threatened to veto the budget, if there were no steps toward reducing spending. But the agreement still might not succeed. The European parliament must approve the measure. And some members of the parliament say it fails to deal with many problems like the sharp differences in wealth between rich and poor people. If the measure is approved, it will affect 28 European Union countries. The EU says Croatia is expected to join the group in July.For VOA Learning English, I'm Carolyn Presutti.

Vietnam and U.S. Hold Humanitarian Mine Action for EOD and Trauma Care Training
Source: Vietnamese People's Army Television Text: In July, Vietnam and the U.S. cohosted a 12-day training course on Humanitarian Mine Action for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Trauma Care. The training was under the cooperation framework to overcome the consequences of unexploded ordnances (UXO) left after the war for the humanitarian purposes between the U.S. and Vietnam. During the training, 13 instructors from the U.S. Pacific Fleet sent key messages to 64 learners from the units under the Vietnamese People's Army: the first person to treat the mine victims is the EOD engineers, not the physicians; health workers should apply new technologies provided by the U.S. for better treatment of their mine victims. U.S. trainer Lete Xier noted "I saw that Vietnamese leaners all have good basic knowledge. With the training cooperation between the U.S. and Vietnam, I believe that the professional skills in explosive ordnance disposal of Vietnamese leaners would be improved. During the training course, we communicated with each other, this helps strengthen our emotion and understanding. We are very happy to come to Vietnam for the training." At the training's closing ceremony, the U.S. handed over to Vietnam a report on the battle history. This is a database of bombing during 1965-1975 period of Indochina. In an exclusive interview with the Vietnamese People's Army Television, U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam David Shear stressed that "We have provided the Vietnamese Army a set of database of U.S. bombings in Vietnam. This is a full, accurate, and comprehensive database. We hope that Vietnam can use this set of database for mine disposal activities. We think that the database will help increase the effectiveness of Vietnam's mine disposal activities, and assist efforts by non-governmental organizations in this field. U.S. and Vietnam are working on an MOU on Explosive Ordnance Disposal. This MOU will further promote the close cooperation, and when this MOU is concluded, we will have stronger cooperation. We look forwards to Vietnam's establishment of a center for mine disposal, and application of standards for mine disposal. This will increase the exchange of information between the U.S. Army and the Vietnamese Army as well as the international non-governmental organizations. That is an essential element for the explosive ordnance disposal activities."

Live: President Trump at Make America Great Again rally from Minnesota
President Trump held a boisterous campaign-style rally in Duluth, Minn., Wednesday night, his 14th trip to a state he narrowly lost since that 2016 election, according to CBS News' Mark Knoller's count. The topics covered ranged from the Inspector General's report into the Clinton email scandal, opening up mining in Superior National Forest, Immigration policy, and the friendly relationship President Trump claims to have with China's president, Xi Jinping. As-it-happened updates: https://www.cbsnews.com/media/trump-to-hold-rally-in-minnesota-live-updates/ The rally in Duluth was ostensibly for for Pete Stauber, a Republican congressional candidate running in the traditionally Democratic 8th District. Home of the state's famed Iron Range, Minnesota is important ground for Trump as a place where his new tariffs on foreign steel could play especially well. The GOP primary is set for Aug. 14. But Mr. Trump hasn't held back on his opinions of GOP incumbents he dislikes. The night before a primary for Republican Rep. Mark Sanford of North Carolina, the president blasted Sanford on Twitter and urged people to vote for his primary opponent. Sanford lost. On Capitol Hill Tuesday night, Mr. Trump again mocked Sanford in a meeting with House Republicans, reportedly calling him "nasty." -- Subscribe to the CBS News Channel HERE: http://youtube.com/cbsnews Watch CBSN live HERE: http://cbsn.ws/1PlLpZ7 Follow CBS News on Instagram HERE: https://www.instagram.com/cbsnews/ Like CBS News on Facebook HERE: http://facebook.com/cbsnews Follow CBS News on Twitter HERE: http://twitter.com/cbsnews Get the latest news and best in original reporting from CBS News delivered to your inbox.

Change Your Role in Forced and Child Labor | P.J. Tobia | TEDxNashville
Most cell phones contain coltan, a mineral often mined by child slaves in the Congo, while many clothes sold at places like the Gap, and H&M are manufactured by children as young as twelve, working in dangerous sweatshops. Nearly every day you use and consume products made by child or slave labor, but thanks to databases created by the US government and a handful of non-profits, it’s easier than ever to make ethical consumer choices. P.J. Tobia is a Foreign Affairs Producer at PBS NewsHour, covering the Middle East, Africa the intelligence and diplomatic community. He is also the host and producer of NewsHour’s Shortwave podcast, on the intersection of foreign affairs and American life.

The Most Unpopular Man in America
"Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) has an interesting take on a recent poll by Democratic Public Policy Polling that showed his approval rating imploding after his recent vote against expanded backround checks for gun purchases: It's probably right. "Nothing like waking up to a poll saying you're the nation's least popular senator," Flake wrote on his Facebook page late Monday night. "Given the public's dim view of Congress in general, that probably puts me somewhere just below pond scum."* Senator Jeff Flake (R- AZ) is now the most unpopular Senator in America. What took him down that road? Well, voting against universal background checks in former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords' state may have something to do with it. Will this happen to other senators who opposed the bill?

5 Ancient Indian Inventions – ‘West’ Says They Did It – LOL!
The wealth, of knowledge in India, is known to many in the world. From metallurgy to cosmetic surgery, from yoga to warfare, from Ayurveda to games and enjoyment; you name it, and Vedas and other ancient scriptures, have it for you. However, there are many inventions, which are now considered that, they were invented in west (thieves!). In reality, they were invented, way back in India, when the western world dwelled in the darkness of caves. So, let us learn, five ancient Indian inventions, that west claims to be theirs! Ancient Indian Inventions:Iron and Steel industry in ancient India Ancient Indian Inventions: Ink Ancient Indian Inventions: Flush Toilets Ancient Indian Inventions: Cards – Without Indians, Casinos Wouldn’t Exist Ancient Indian Inventions: Diamond Mining This was developed in the Indus Valley Civilization by around 4500 BCE.The size and prosperity of the Indus civilization grew as a result of this innovation, which eventually led to more planned settlements making use of drainage and sewerage. Sophisticated irrigation and water storage systems were developed by the Indus Valley Civilization, including artificial reservoirs at Girnar dated to 3000 BCE, and an early canal irrigation system from c. 2600 BCE. Cotton was cultivated in the region by the 5th–4th millennia BCE.Sugarcane was originally from tropical South and Southeast Asia.Different species likely originated in different locations with S. barberi originating in India, and S. edule and S. officinarum coming from New Guinea. The inhabitants of the Indus valley developed a system of standardization, using weights and measures, evident by the excavations made at the Indus valley sites. This technical standardization enabled gauging devices to be effectively used in angular measurement and measurement for construction.Calibration was also found in measuring devices along with multiple subdivisions in case of some devices.One of the earliest known docks is at Lothal (2400 BCE), located away from the main current to avoid deposition of silt.Modern oceanographers have observed that the Harappans must have possessed knowledge relating to tides in order to build such a dock on the ever-shifting course of the Sabarmati, as well as exemplary hydrography and maritime engineering. Excavations at Balakot (c. 2500–1900 BCE), present day Pakistan, have yielded evidence of an early furnace.[9] The furnace was most likely used for the manufacturing of ceramic objects.Ovens, dating back to the civilization's mature phase (c. 2500–1900 BCE), were also excavated at Balakot. The Kalibangan archeological site further yields evidence of potshaped hearths, which at one site have been found both on ground and underground.[10] Kilns with fire and kiln chambers have also been found at the Kalibangan site.

I believe that both the political parties are corrupted -- from local levels to the highest positions. The infiltration and embedding of political leaders has been implemented with a progressive, ongoing, established protocol to put key people into positions of power and influence, and smear their opposition, for the benefit of the elite and for crumbs to their followers.
