Once the initial harvest was done, the vineyard team began to collect the remaining fruit. This [release] should be considered an exception. The domaine went on to produce this wine again in and a very small quantity of it in Likethe growing Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny saw cycles of intense heat and heavy rain that encouraged the growth of botrytis. However, as de Villaine points out, with these difficulties came opportunity.

Gaon Weekly Albums Chart . KOR, . That would be an irrational act. The Creator and the Creation do nothing which is irrational so then why, on this extraordinary day, should His Issue act in any fashion which would be in direct opposition to HIM? Now, this Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny of re-education supersedes all of the prior incarnations. The most recent life experience is the one which is dealt with.
It would be unfruitful for too many memories to intrude at this point. Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny probability exists that should this occur, it would cause a scattering of power which would require Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny excessive amount of energy to be exerted in an attempt to perfect all past lives at one time.
The ramifications of this type of situation could ultimately affect the entire planet. You would do well to remember, as has been previously explained, the past has already Created the present; the future has already been Created by and in the present. This would in actuality be manipulation with the intent being Soul perfection.
The end result would be … NO lessons having been learned. None would earn their laurels. So, during this introspective state each is free to now acknowledge what it is that they have or have not learned and to decide at this time the most appropriate manner in which to redeem themselves, in their own eyes. The Kosmonic reveals various strategic methods which each Soul may endow themselves with Spiritually while pursuing a contented physical life as well.
Where Are You - Mantovani And His Orchestra - The Incomparable Mantovani we speak of these methods which the Kosmonic shares with its inner Self, no specific information will be shared with you, the readers.
This is the most Sacred of times, the ultimate sharing of the Soul with its Self. This is a privilege which is bestowed by God upon an entity as part of HIS reward to all those whose who are willing to listen, as well as those whose purity of Spirit earn His benevolence.
Each Soul receives such knowledge as needed to foresee which life experience would be most suited for them. Many variables are Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny into consideration.
All probability factors are computed for the best ratio of success. Many now ardently seek advice from their Guides and teachers. Each of those elevated ones share their wisdom with their Guardian child. Thus it will come to pass that the individual Soul will select certain Spirit Guides, as well as a Master Teacher Guide, for their future incarnate period.
This is NOT permitted. Many vows which cannot be broken are indeed Created here. Each evolved Spirit Being has worked with the Guardian child in selecting the geographic location, the parents to be born to and the specific astrological aspects of life which would best suit them in their new upcoming ADVENTURE.
All of the Guardian children are aware now of each possible and probable crossroad which awaits them in their soon-to-be human life. It requires the child to LOOK within in order to be successful. Each of the children must establish certain points in their lives where they Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny they will require Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny or more of their Guides to assist them in awakening to their destiny.
Some choose to awaken very slowly to their life lessons. A few choose to take quantum leaps. None must accelerate TOO rapidly. Those who choose to take the leaps rather than the slow Le Quattro Stagioni - LEstate - Vivaldi*, Salvatore Accardo, Società Corelli - Vivaldi - Le Quattro will consciously know the future as well.
Preferential treatment does not exist here … ALL are equals. Now, it is further understood and agreed to that the Guides and other teachers will take whatever steps necessary in awakening their Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny at the appropriate time. There are those Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny will be able to respond to a simple whisper, this is fine; this is what is desired, for those who Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny later need to have a cinder block dropped on their heads, this is fine too.
Many of the children do become enthralled with the Earth plane and all of her beauty. So it remains to be seen as the child approaches certain choices, crossroadsthroughout its life span, whether he or she will ask for assistance; will look within to bring forth unhesitatingly the Soul voice and respond to it, or as is more common, react in similar fashion as in a previous time, thus taking many steps backwards as a lack of faith supersedes all else.
The child tends to re-select the same Spirits with whom he has been a part of in many previous existences. Some of these ones had at one time shared many Earthly lives together until one or the other had no further need to experience a life in this dimension.
The Master Teachers are those whose evolutionary level is of a higher degree than many of their Looks Like You Made It - Lenny Williams - Lets Do It Today Brethren.
Thus in times of uncertainty all may call upon the one whose experiences are much vaster. So it is that a Sacred Circle is formed once again between the Guides, teachers and children.
Each Creates a balance of Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny which lasts throughout eternity, so to speak. Some are MORE active than others! This place exists within a dimension which is non-visible to most among you on the Earth Star. Some realms ARE visible to all Beings, many are not. This particular area can only be accessed by the Guardian child who is awaiting a specific timeframe which is theirs alone.
These Souls are of human origins, for the most part, that are in dire need of a place to repose until their time has come. Usually, other species of life whose origins are other than human have their own place of solitude.
This dear readers, is part of the Dance of Eternal Life! In the middle walks the Creator and the Creation. In time, all shall be as one…I shall meet you there. Blue Star……. W hen we analyze our current crisis, focusing on the past few years of economic activity blinds us to the history and context that are vital to understanding the root cause.
What we have been experiencing is not the result of an unforeseen economic crash that appeared out of the blue with the collapse of the housing market. To frame this crisis around a debate on economic theory misses the point entirely. To even blame it on greedy bankers, while essentially accurate, also misses the most vital point. We have been blinded to what has been developing throughout the world. The IMF and global bankers have conquered the second and third world, and they have now moved on to countries within the first world.
Western European and American working classes are in the cross-hairs now. They have bought off leaders of both the Republican and Democratic parties, and have established a dominant role in all three branches of government and throughout the mainstream media.
Never before, in the history of civilization, has a nation been so thoroughly and systematically fleeced. Until we can become politically intelligent enough to see this as the Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny and root cause of our current crisis, we will not be able to overcome it, our living standards will continue to decline and we will all be sentenced to a slow death in a neo-feudal system built on debt slavery.
Through their control and domination of the mass media, they have kept their crimes against humanity out of public consciousness. We have been shielded from the global devastation and death toll that they have already wrought. The Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny is an unsuspecting population of confused and passive people having their future Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny out from under them, right before their eyes, without any organized defense or resistance.
As the entrenched global banking cartel continues to control domestic political policy, the next phase Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny this crisis will inevitably feature an escalation into mass violence. However, civil unrest has not yet occurred within the United States. There are many theories as to why there has been so little resistance from the US population thus far, and several factors play into it.
The most significant factor is that social safety net programs have been vital in preventing people from resorting to extreme measures. This has already stretched a social safety net system that is designed to handle significantly less people to its limit. This safety net system has now been drained of all reserve resources over the past two years, and is obviously not sustainable under current economic and political conditions. As social safety net programs have been drained of reserves, many US citizens have also been burning through their personal savings.
Over the past few years the percentage of Americans living paycheck to paycheck has dramatically increased. In43 percent of Americans were living paycheck to paycheck. Inthe percentage increased to 49 percent. The most recent number for has exploded to a shocking 77 percent. So as this prolonged economic crisis continues, these safety nets, that are already overwhelmed, will have to support more and more people and will inevitably break down. As we have just begun to see, budget cuts to vital social programs on the state and federal levels will become increasingly severe right at the point when many more Americans will need them.
When an overwhelming majority of the population directly feels negative effects upon their own living standards, the propaganda system collapses. The illusion comes crashing down and people will finally start to get wise to the Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny scam that is being played on them. When they wake from their media-induced American dream state and realize that they are now living in a nightmare, as crazy as it may sound, people will actually stop voting against their own interests.
The handwriting is Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny the wall and the ruling class has to realize that by the time rolls around, their puppet politicians will be voted out of office, or their heads will roll, quite literally.
Looking at this from a purely technocratic sociological viewpoint, avoiding Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny riots and violence while this many desperate people lose life-sustaining programs appears to be an impossible task, and given our current economic and political environment this seems inevitable. Klare explained:. The list could, in the future, prove long and unnerving. And at the same time there is public awareness Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny this extraordinary wealth that was transferred to a few individuals at levels without historical precedent in America….
Outbreaks of civil unrest are something that the US government and Pentagon have been expecting, and preparing for. The crisis has been ongoing…. Of course, all of us recall the dramatic political consequences wrought by the economic turmoil of the s and s in Europe, the instability, and high levels of violent extremism.
Further, DoD [the Department of Defense] would be, by necessity, an essential enabling hub for the continuity of political authority in a multi-state or nationwide civil conflict or disturbance.
In plain English, something bureaucrats and the military seem incapable of employing, this translates into the imposition of martial law and a de facto government being run out of the Department of Defense. They are considering it.
So should you. They revealed the four-step IMF plan. Though the strategy is slightly modified based on the nation being attacked, here in the United States we are currently about Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny enter a variation of step-three, which is currently being phased in throughout Europe.
This step inevitably leads to a significant portion of the population losing the ability to obtain basic necessities essential for survival. Once this happens, Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny inevitably occur, or as they put it: step 3. The IMF riot is Christmas Alphabet - McGuire Sisters - Christmas Alphabet / Give Me Your Heart For Christmas predictable.
What Stiglitz did not know is that Newsnight obtained several documents from inside the World Bank. The IMF said there may be a link between rising inequality within Western economies and deflating demand. Ditch the deduction for interest on home mortgages.
Tax gasoline. The United States recently opened itself to the most intense scrutiny yet by the International Monetary Fund, and on Thursday was offered a bitter pill when the agency criticized some well-defended aspects of American culture — cheap fuel, subsidized housing, and a government retirement check…. Their agenda seems to be the same everywhere, cut back retirement benefits, reduce public Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny for health care, weaken unions and make ordinary workers take pay cuts.
It also calls for weakening labor market regulations that provide workers with job security. These recommendations are being given in a context where the world economy is suffering from a massive shortfall of demand. In other words, tens of millions of people are unemployed right now because there is not enough spending to keep them employed. It put cutting Social Security Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny the top of the steps that the country should take to achieve deficit reduction.
This one is more than Weil Ich Dich Liebe - Susan Schubert - Weil Ich Dich Liebe bit outrageous for two reasons…. While the IMF has no problem warning about retired workers getting too much in Social Security benefits, it apparently could not find its voice when the issue was the junk securities from Goldman Sachs or Citigroup that helped to fuel the housing bubble.
The collapse of this bubble has not only sank the world economy, it also destroyed most of the savings of the near retirees for whom the IMF wants to cut Social Security.
The vast majority of middle-income retirees have most of their wealth in their home equity. This home equity largely disappeared when the bubble burst. As scary and unbelievable as all this may sound, we are on a fast Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny to this scenario. The American and global economy have already been looted and destroyed beyond repair.
Most serious economists will admit that governments have already exhausted their capital by bailing out the banks and taking on unprecedented amounts of debt. The bailouts and recent return to high profits were just the final phase of the looting and a further consolidation of wealth on an unprecedented scale.
As the downturn continues, there is nothing left to revive the economy, the reserves and safety nets have already been stretched to their limits. We have a political and economic system that has been overrun by organized corruption and theft.
Along with a mass media system that does not inform the populace and has effectively marginalized and isolated the majority of the Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny. Meanwhile, bubbling just under the surface is a very heavily armed population with a militia movement that has doubled in size over the past year, and their memberships continue to rapidly grow. In other words, as this economic downturn continues, what is now Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny passive and confused population will eventually devolve into an explosion of violence.
Without a coherent non-violent movement to provide a viable alternative, without an outlet for severe and legitimate grievances that provides any chance for urgently affecting necessary political change, people will resort to violence as a last desperate act of vengeance and frustration.
They are weary of the wretched selling of their labor-power day after day — faced with the fear of joining the enormous mass of unemployed — so that the greatest profit can be wrung from each human body, profit later squandered in the orgies of the masters of capital…. The feeling of revolt will grow stronger every day among the peoples subjected to various degrees of exploitation, and they will take Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny arms to gain by force the rights which reason alone has not won them.
Whatever your preconceptions of the man who said this may be, the voice of Che Guevara can now be clearly understood and related to by the overwhelming majority of people throughout the United States. Whether it is by arrogance or ignorance, perhaps both, it appears that our ruling class has suicidal tendencies.
That definitely puts them behind many other people and interests when decisions are being made around here. How will this imperial fascist banking cartel respond to revolt? How will they maintain their power over an increasingly radicalized and hostile US population?
In an attempt to stave off organized rebellion, they are already escalating their propaganda efforts in attempts to divide and distract the population. The tactics of their divide and conquer strategy are already on full display. This propaganda effort is only a temporary measure and will not suffice over the long-term.
As the economy continues to collapse, the banking elite risk being overthrown as a result of their own greed. So they will then turn to physical, military-based violence to suppress populations that can no longer be controlled through propaganda and economic coercion.
To paraphrase policy analyst Anatol Lieven, the classic strategy of an endangered oligarchy is to divert discontent among the population into nationalistic militarism. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded Sapporo (Claes Rosen Remix) - Shingo Nakamura - Sapporo patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so.
An increased external threat will lead to an increased internal crackdown, which creates the pretext and conditions for a police state. Without an external enemy to rally the population against, the population will rally against the pre-existing internal powers. Its wish is to be judged by its enemies rather than by its results. The story of terrorism is written by the state and it is therefore highly instructive.
But they must always know enough to convince them that, compared with terrorism, everything else must be acceptable, or in any case more rational and democratic. As millions of Americans and the majority of the global Seasons - Grace Slick - Dreams look for vengeance on those responsible for severely declining living standards, the global banking cartel are not going to blame themselves, so they will deflect blame to China, a most convenient target.
As a result of the crisis, national currencies are reeling, and the dollar, although currently one of the strongest paper currencies, is losing power as the crisis escalates.
The IMF is working to replace the dollar as the world reserve currency and have begun discussing the possibility of making their Special Drawing Rights Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny the new world reserve currency. A plummeting dollar will obviously put the American population in a severely desperate situation and the US-based banking cartel needs an excuse to divert political backlash.
In China, the nation poised to replace the US as the preeminent global superpower, they have the perfect scapegoat. US-based global corporations have been shifting their business to China and off-shoring millions of jobs to the region due to their extremely low worker wages. So the American population is already pre-disposed to blaming China, as opposed to the companies who Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny exploiting the cheap labor. US politicians have been conveniently shifting blame for unemployment from themselves to China.
Meanwhile, China also owns a significant portion of US national debt. As national governments attempt to survive in an increasingly hostile global economy, trade and currency wars will flare up and escalate.
China and Japan have just engaged in a fierce currency battle. This currency battle is not to be underestimated. China has just overtaken Japan for Ah! Voodoo - Monty - A Typical Scorpio number two position.
The European sovereign debt crisis and the weakening of US economic growth have led governments around the world to seek to secure a greater share of Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny markets. Under conditions of slowing growth and stagnant markets, this inevitably heightens trade conflicts between competing capitalist nations. In particular, the Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny and the European Union, spearheaded by the export power Germany, have aggressively pursued a cheap currency policy in order to gain a trade advantage Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny their rivals.
Japan has also denounced China for Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny keeping its Simza Pres. Nygma - Republic low while bidding up the yen by increasing its Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny of Japanese government securities. He also denounced China for acquiring national resources in developing countries and building up its military. The only question is: Why is the administration protecting China by refusing to designate it as a currency manipulator?
Michael T. Because energy is tied to so many aspects of the global economy, and because doubts are growing about the future availability of oil and other vital fuels, the decisions China makes regarding its energy portfolio will have far-reaching consequences. As the leading player in the global energy market, China will significantly determine not only the prices we will be paying for critical fuels but also the type of energy systems we will come to rely on.
Currency and trade wars will likely be a prelude to military confrontation. Based on early maneuvering it is evident that the masters of war have already drawn up sides. The occupation of these countries continues with no end in sight. In Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny ways the wars in Iraq and Af-Pak have only been the initial phase of a global attack, positioning forces and building massive military bases in pivotal geo-strategic locations.
The operations in this region have essentially been a warm-up for much wider-ranging attacks against much stronger countries. While most of the US population is playing checkers, seeing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as one-off battles, the global banking cartel is playing chess, using these wars as only initial geo-strategic moves in a grand strategy toward total world domination. The intensity of military maneuvering presently occurring is alarming.
So there we have it. Preparations are already underway. Add to this picture rapidly declining natural resources and an increasingly hostile and polluted environment with extreme weather events frequently pounding the globe. In the past decade the global corporate elite have already engaged in three major resource wars in Iraq, Af-Pak and Northern Africa.
For the first time in human history, we are now consuming resources faster than nature can produce them. As developing countries like China and India attempt to live like western countries, there are simply not enough resources.
The global economy is built on an unsustainable foundation. Instead of evolving and changing course, the entrenched banking power base is digging in further, and they run NATO, Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny private military complex and the US government. Based on the current policies that are in place, they have clearly already decided that they want to keep living business as usual and refuse to evolve and adapt to a rapidly changing environment.
The global elite have consistently used a strategy of arming and funding both sides of armed conflicts. When they confront a government that cannot be bribed or provoked into civil or regional war, they fund brutal death squads, attempt military coups and intimidate them by giving weapons to undemocratic neighboring regimes.
These terrorist strategies are not limited to the Middle East and Africa, just ask our neighbors throughout Latin America about the School of the Americas. Contrary to popular belief, the horrendous torture techniques inflicted upon people in Abu Ghraib, Iraq were not an isolated incident. The picture in Latin America today is one of inspiration.
The military coup in Honduras, the Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny coup in Venezuela, and the failed attempt to provoke Columbia and Venezuela into an armed conflict all clearly indicate where this situation is headed if the imperialist bankers get their way. The average American is dreadfully unaware of just how depraved these people are. The little regard they have for human life is beyond common comprehension. Half of the people we have deployed in our name, who are funded by our tax dollars, are not even fighting for our country, they are fighting for a paycheck.
This is one of The Boyfriends - Once Upon A Time reasons why the war in Afghanistan is now the longest war in US history. This system has led to a perpetual state of war. These are some of the findings of a two-year investigation by The Washington Post that discovered what amounts to an alternative geography of the United States, a Top Secret America hidden from public view and lacking in thorough oversight.
After nine years of unprecedented spending and growth, the result is that the system put in place to keep the United States safe is so massive that its effectiveness is impossible to Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny. The implications are ominous, to say the least. While many of these companies currently rely on US tax dollars, they are not part of the government, they are global private entities with their own interests at heart, similar to the Federal Reserve banking system.
In fact, when you peel back the layers, many of these private military companies are funded by the global banking cartel. He accurately summed up the situation when he said:. In short, I was a racketeer for Capitalism…. The general public shoulders the bill.
This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly placed gravestones, Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken hearts and homes. Economic instability. Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations. To give just two brief examples of how the banking cartel operates behind the scenes during wars, consider the following. The international lending institutions praised both Rwanda and Uganda for increasing their gross domestic product GDPwhich resulted from the illegal mining of DRC resources.
In another example of grotesque profiting off massive levels of death, banking cartel members made a fortune on the production of cluster bombs.
HSBC… has profited more than any other institution from companies that manufacture cluster bombs. Campaigners maintain the deadly weapons can explode years after combat, killing Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny maiming innocent people….
To sum all of this up, the global banking cartel and private military complex are a runaway virus that demands a permanent state of warfare. They are intrinsically parasitic in nature, they have devolved into a fascist enterprise that survives and Tunes Of Glory - The Army Benevolent Fund - Military Musical Pageant 1975 Wembley Stadium off of destruction.
Enemies are now necessary for the wheels of the global banking cartel to turn. So as the US and global population becomes more radical, and as the environment becomes more hostile, with increasingly limited natural resources, in a desperate attempt to maintain power the global banking cartel will escalate from economic attacks to worldwide military-based assaults. This may very well be a case of history repeating Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny. Not to oversimplify an extremely complex situation, but this is all too similar to the origins of World War II.
Desperate and impoverished populations increasingly supported more and more extreme leaders. Research the history of pre-war societies and you will see for yourself how our current political environment fits historical precedent like a glove. As mentioned before, the roots of our current crisis can be directly traced back to the aftermath of World War II.
All were central and pivotal in creating the crisis which we are now confronted with. So brace You Dont Have To Go - Muddy Waters - In Memoriam unless we significantly 013 - Various - Nallet Tulee, Oletko Valmis ? our present course, we are on the road to World War III.
All around you there are more people than ever, suddenly finding that they have the ability to channel messages. As with any skills that suddenly appear it takes time to settle in, and the clarity of them is dependent upon your level of consciousness. We would certainly encourage you to persevere with channellingand if successful you will be contacted by Beings who can resonate with your own vibrations. It is Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) - Various - True Motown that the messages you get are personal and for your own advancement, as not everyone will be expected to go public.
These could for example come from your Higher Self, but care needs to be taken in the early stages to ensure you do not attract lower entities. As you might expect, when you sit for such a reason you need to place protection around yourself. Michael invokes Warrior Angels that work with Archangel Michaeland you could hardly do better than follow this example.
Some of you will develop your own methods, and what you need is to surround yourself with Light, and for example the Golden White Light is most powerful. As time passed you will find your psychic abilities also developing, and telepathy will become more commonplace. Many of you already experience it often without realising it has taken place. It comes in the form of knowing something that has not yet been spoken or taken place.
You probably call it intuition and that is why we regularly advise you to use it where you can. To continue developing, you will need an open mind so that you do not pre-judge a situation. This way you will allow your Guides to come closer to you, and they know exactly what you need by Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny of spiritual knowledge.
In reality you do not need help, as Its Too Late - The Adelians - The Adelians is held within, even Tune In 5 - Miles Davis - At Newport 1955-1975 (The Bootleg Series Vol.
4) it is in your subconscious memory. However, Song For The American Market - La La Limited* - Road To Nowhere Beings can point you in the right direction, and you can take it from there.
Hitherto you have Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny been encouraged to develop psychically, and indeed there has been outright opposition to it. This has usually centred around fear, and through religious teachings that associate it with the Devil. The only one we will acknowledge is the one that Man has created through so much negativity. It follows that what you believe in becomes real for you, so it is best not to focus upon such Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny.
Of course there is evil, but there is no point in blaming it on some mystical beast. Negative energies are all around and even embedded in the earth, and part of the cleaning process that is taking place is to transmute them. Some of you carry out such wonderful unselfish work for the good of all, and that is greatly appreciated. The Lightworkers do tremendous work, and many have come from the higher dimensions to which they have already ascended.
Therefore although outwardly there does not seem to be much evidence of it, without their help you would be in a worse predicament. You needed to move on, and throw off the mindset created over millennia of time that stifled original thinking.
As a result of its equatorial location, the DRC experiences high precipitation Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny has the highest frequency of thunderstorms in the world. This massive expanse of lush jungle covers most of the vast, low-lying central basin of the river, which slopes toward the Atlantic Ocean in the west. This area is surrounded by plateaus merging into savannas in the south and southwest, by mountainous terraces in the west, and dense grasslands extending beyond the Congo River in the north.
High, glaciated mountains Rwenzori Mountains are found in the extreme eastern region. The tropical climate also produced the Congo River system which dominates the region topographically along with the rainforest it flows through, though they are not mutually exclusive.
The name for the Congo state is derived in part from the river. Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny river and its tributaries form the backbone of Congolese economics and transportation.
The river flows generally west from Kisangani just below Boyoma Fallsthen gradually bends southwest, passing by Mbandakajoining with the Ubangi Riverand running into the Pool Malebo Stanley Pool. Kinshasa Children Of Bodom - Follow The Reaper Brazzaville are on opposite sides of the river at the Pool.
Then the river narrows and falls through a number of cataracts in deep canyons, collectively known as the Livingstone Fallsand runs past Boma into the Atlantic Ocean. The river also has the second-largest flow and the second-largest watershed of any river in the world trailing the Amazon in both respects.
The Albertine Rift plays a key role in shaping the Congo's geography. Not only is the northeastern section of the country much more mountainous, but due to the rift's tectonic activity, this area also experiences volcanic activity, occasionally with loss of life. The Rift valley has exposed an enormous amount of mineral wealth throughout the south and east of the Congo, making it accessible to mining. Cobaltcopper, cadmiumindustrial and gem-quality diamondsgold, silver, zincmanganesetingermaniumuraniumradiumbauxiteiron ore, and coal are all found in plentiful supply, especially in the Congo's southeastern Katanga region.
One of the three streams of extremely fluid lava flowed through the nearby city of Gomakilling 45 and leavinghomeless. Four hundred thousand people were evacuated from the city during the eruption. The lava poisoned the water of Lake Kivukilling fish. Only two planes left the local airport because of the possibility of the explosion of stored petrol.
The lava passed the airport but ruined the Watusi - NON, Boyd Rice - Back To Mono, trapping several airplanes. Six months after the eruption, nearby Mount Nyamuragira also erupted. Mount Nyamuragira then erupted in and again in January World Wide Fund for Nature ecoregions located in the Congo include:. The country is currently divided into the city-province of Kinshasa and 25 other provinces.
The provinces Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny subdivided into districts which are divided into territories. The Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny of the Democratic Republic of the Congo contain great biodiversityincluding many rare and endemic species, such as the common chimpanzee and the bonobothe African forest elephantthe mountain gorillathe okapi and the white rhino.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is the most biodiverse African country. The civil war and resulting poor economic conditions have endangered much of this biodiversity. Many park wardens were either killed or could not afford to continue their work. Conservationists have particularly worried about primates. The Congo is inhabited by several great ape species: the common chimpanzee Pan troglodytesthe bonobo Pan Ive Never Loved Anyone More - Joe Stampley - Joe Stampleythe eastern gorilla Gorilla beringeiand possibly the western gorilla Gorilla gorilla.
Much concern has been raised about great ape extinction. Because of hunting and habitat destruction, the chimpanzee, the bonobo and the gorilla, each of whose populations once numbered in the millions, have now dwindled down to only aboutgorillas,chimpanzees and possibly only about 10, bonobos. Poaching for the exotic animal or ivory trade has been a persistent problem for species loss in the DRC, it has been made a necessity for some trying to escape poverty and a means of continuing the civil war for some rebel groups including the Lords Resistance army LRA.
After a four-year interlude between two constitutions, with new political institutions established at the various levels of government, as well as new administrative divisions for the provinces throughout the country, a new constitution came into effect in and politics in the Democratic Republic of the Congo finally settled into a stable presidential democratic republic. The transitional constitution  had established a parliament with a bicameral legislature, consisting of a Senate and a National Assembly.
The Senate had, among other things, the charge of drafting the new constitution of the country. The executive branch was vested in a member cabinet, headed by a President and four vice presidents. The President was also the Commander-in Chief of the armed forces. The transitional constitution also established a Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny independent judiciary, headed by a Supreme Court with constitutional interpretation powers.
The constitution, also known as the Constitution of the Third Republic, came into Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny in February It had concurrent authority, however, with the transitional constitution until the inauguration of the elected officials who emerged from the July elections. Under the new constitution, the legislature remained bicameral; the executive was concomitantly undertaken by a President and the government, led by a Prime Minister, appointed from the party able to secure a majority in the National Assembly.
The new constitution also granted new powers to the provincial governments, creating provincial parliaments which have oversight of the Governor and the head of the provincial government, whom they elect. The new constitution also saw the disappearance of the Supreme Court, which was divided into three new institutions.
The constitutional interpretation prerogative of the Supreme Court is now held by the Constitutional Court. A relative explained how the government illicitly collected revenue: "Mobutu would ask one of us to go to the bank and take out a million. We'd go to an intermediary and tell him to get five million. He would go to the bank with Mobutu's authority, and take out ten.
Mobutu got one, and we took the other nine. President Joseph Kabila established the Commission of Repression of Economic Crimes upon his ascension to power in The international Criminal Court prosecutor opened the case in June Child soldiers have been used on a large scale in DRC, and in it was estimated that 30, children were still Rain Wave - DRC - Androidgeny with armed groups.
