Attilio Folliero, Cecilia Laya | Last week, for the first time in its history, the U.S. lost the triple AAA rating that qualifies its public debt. It is quite likely this will lead to a further devaluation of the dollar against gold. To buy one ounce of gold at the end of July, $ 1,628.50 was needed; it is likely that as early as tomorrow gold could reach 1,700 per ounce, $ 2,000 towards the final launch. more...  0 Comments

California Prisoners' Hunger Strike, day 15th.

Justin Berton | Nancy Kincaid, spokeswoman for federal prison health care receiver J. Clark Kelso, said nurses were making four cell checks per day on the hunger-striking inmates at Pelican Bay and other prisons.

Kincaid said one inmate required fluids and had been treated for dehydration, yet none had fallen gravely ill.

Doctors will not force-feed striking inmates, all of whom reserved the right to refuse meals and medical treatment, she said.

"They have the right to choose to die of starvation if they wish," Kincaid said.
