Diego Garcia is the largest island in the Chagos Archipelago region which lies in the Indian ocean and is halfway between Indonesia and Africa.
The island currently houses a vast US military base, the Chagos Islands population was expelled in the late 1960's, after the USA had leased them from the UK. It is due to expire in 2016.
The inhabitants always believed they would be able to return to their homes. Now it seems the lease will be extended by a further 20 years.(to be agreed by December 2014).
It seems Diego Garcia may never be retuned to its people.

Keep Young Foods
If you believe in "you are what you eat", then why not try some healthy superfoods that will keep you looking young and youthful. These three foods are quite simple easy to find and cook. Here are three of the best youth giving foods.
1. A Salad of Watercress,Rocket and Spinach.
These glorious green leaves can even be grown at home to give you an added freshness. Spinach has long been known as a superfood and it is high in many vitamins and iron. combined with the rocket and watercress these leaves will help you keep a glowing skin and strengthen your bones.
It is easy to make a simple salad with an olive oil and lemon dressing, adding some crunchy peppers and a little goats cheese. In winter try making a soup with sweet potato.
2.Mackerel and Salmon
These two fishes are very high source of omega-3 oils which are great for keeping a super smooth skin. There are many varieties of recipes for salmon and mackerel and should try to eat them at least twice a week.
Salmon is excellent grilled or steamed after marinating with lemon juice and herbs. Likewise with mackerel, or you could be more adventurous and try some asian recipes with chillies and ginger.
Cherries are a low calorie fruit that contain the anti-inflammatory quercetin and sleep promoting melatonin.They are also high in potassium, which is good for building muscles.
Cherries are delicious eaten fresh or even dried.You could also try some of the refreshing cherry juices.

It maybe not if the euro fails, but when the euro fails.The euro seems to be doomed in many peoples eyes and if you have your investments or money tied to the euro you will want to know what will happen to your cash.
The European Union is fighting hard to save the euro, but can we really believe that no country will pullout of the euro.
Greece looks likely that if any country drops the euro , they will be the first to revert back to their original currency, the drachma.
The Euro and Your Money
No matter how many bail outs we have, and the optimistic and upbeat news we are fed from the media, we are surely just witnessing a currency in decline......

Do We Need An Enquiry Into The Banking Scandals
As yet another banking scandal hits the headlines , the manipulation of interest rates which has caused more misery for the average citizen and leading to an even greater mistrust of the banking system today.
What the people who have placed their trust in banks need to know is are they going to be protected from the rogues with a full enquiry into the banking scandals.There is a distinct reluctance from the British Government to hold a full enquiry into the bankers deception.
"Where there is power there is corruption; where there is absolute power there is absolute corruption."

Germany it seems are the leaders of Europe,they are dictating to the struggling Spain and Greece as they attempt to overcome their Euro woes as they and other Euro members continue the bail out.
Are Germany plotting to take over Europe or have they always intended to take over the sovereign Nations and gain fiscal control over the member states of the European Union.
European Single State
Brussels, the seemingly quiet Belgian city is the bona fide base of the EU. Here the zealots that are intent on creating a single state to rule over are having their task made easier, as the euro crisis grips the weaker countries tightening the screw on their weak economies........
