Tojo Hideki, wartime premier of Japan, is indicted by the International Military Tribunal for the Far East of war crimes. In September 1945, he tried to commit suicide by shooting himself but was saved by an American physician who gave him a transfusion of American blood. He was eventually hanged by the Americans in 1948 after having been found guilty of war crimes.
1952 --- IBM President Thomas J. Watson, Jr., informed his company's stockholders that IBM was building "the most advanced, most flexible high-speed computer in the world." The computer was unveiled April 7, 1953, as the IBM 701 Electronic Data Processing Machine.
1968 --- “Hair” premiered on Broadway. In a year marked by as much social and cultural upheaval as 1968, it was understandable that the New York Times review of a controversial musical newly arrived on Broadway would describe the show in political terms. “You probably don’t have to be a supporter of Eugene McCarthy to love it,” wrote critic Clive Barnes, “but I wouldn’t give it much chance among the adherents of Governor Reagan.” The show in question was Hair, the now-famous “tribal love-rock musical” that introduced the era-defining song “Aquarius” and gave New York theatergoers a full-frontal glimpse of the burgeoning 60s-counterculture esthetic.
1974 --- President Richard Nixon announces to the public that he will release transcripts of 46 taped White House conversations in response to a Watergate trial subpoena issued in July 1973. The House Judiciary committee accepted 1,200 pages of transcripts the next day, but insisted that the tapes themselves be turned over as well. In June 1972, five men connected with Nixon’s Committee to Re-Elect the President (CREEP) had been caught breaking into the Democratic National Committee Headquarters in the Watergate Hotel in Washington D.C. A subsequent investigation exposed other illegal activities perpetrated by CREEP and authorized by senior members of Nixon’s administration. It also raised questions about what the president knew about those activities. Nixon vigorously denied involvement in the burglary cover-up, infamously proclaiming “I am not a crook.” In May 1973, the Senate convened an investigation into the Watergate scandal amid public cries for Nixon’s impeachment. In July 1974, the Supreme Court rejected Nixon’s claim of executive privilege and ordered him to turn over the remaining tapes. On one of them, the president could be heard ordering the FBI to end its investigation of the Watergate break-in; this came to be known as the “smoking gun” that proved Nixon’s guilt.

Inspiring 2015 Environmental Stories
Mark Oct. 12, 2016 on your calendar because that's when "The Monsanto Tribunal" begins in The Hague, Netherlands. It’s a crowd-funded group of environmentalists, activists, scientists and lawyers that will evaluate allegations of "ecocide" made against Monsanto causing irreparable damage to the environment and human health.
Aspen, Colo. became the third U.S. city — next to Burlington, Vt. and Greensburg, Kan. — to walk away from powering itself from climate altering, subsidized fossil fuels. Aspen now sources wind, solar and geothermal energies — they are a ‘green’ community.
This year a critically endangered western North Pacific Gray whale named Varvara registered the longest mammalian migration. She swam from her feeding grounds off Sakhalin Island, Russia to the Sea of Cortez, Baja, California, Mexico and then five-and-a-half months later returned. This 50-foot, nine-year-old, 40-ton whale cruised an astounding 13,987 miles.
Deep diving whales like sperms and Cuvier's beaked possess specialized oxygen binding, ultra stable proteins within their muscles, which are helping doctors develop synthetic blood used for emergency transfusions. Whales hold the key to saving trauma patients.
We owe gratitude to former NBA Houston Rocket Yao Ming. Since 2011, he’s worked ceaselessly with Wild Aid to inform Chinese people of the death and consequences of killing 100 million sharks a year for shark fin soup laced with mercury poisoning. This year was the first time in 20 years that the insatiable demand for shark fins declined. We are missing 90 percent of most shark species that swam the oceans in 1995.
Sea Shepherd’s icefish campaign was a smashing success after 110 days and over 10,000 nautical miles across two seas and three oceans, the longest hot pursuit of a poaching vessel in maritime history, which ended with the captain of the ignoble, unflagged Thunder scuttling her off the coast of West Africa.
The international group of "hacktivists" known as Anonymous punished Japan and Iceland for mercilessly massacring whales and dolphins and not abiding by the 1986 world moratorium on whaling. Since September over 100 government and commercial websites were forced offline thanks to what is known as "disturbed denial of service."
We are missing 40 percent of oxygen-bearing oceanic plants called phytoplankton — the base of the entire marine food web — from overheating oceans as a direct consequence of the climate crisis, courtesy of the $5.6 trillion annually subsidized fossil fuel industry.

Memorial to be held for Arkansas “War Between the States” soldier
Union troops in the area. He was arrested and tried by a military tribunal, with little defense offered for his actions. The tribunal found him guilty of spying and he was hanged for his crime on January 8, 1864. Though Dodd did not reveal the source of the information, a 15-year-old girl named Mary Dodge and her father were summarily escorted back to their home in Vermont. These events have led to David Owen Dodd being called the "Boy Martyr of the Confederacy". On January 8, 1864, he was hanged in what is now MacArthur Park while more than 6,000 people watched. Dodd maintained his innocence until the end. 152 years have passed since the death of Dodd.
This event is sanctioned Arkansas Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans.
Everyone attending the Memorial is invited to bring a rose, carnation, or wreathes to honor the grave site. There will have a presentation after the Firing Ceremony.
Everyone will be asked to clean up afterward picking up papers etc.
Parking is outside the cemetery only.
For more information contact Arkansas Division Chief of Staff W. Danny Honnoll at 870-926-2985.

MH17: Amid Netherlands' inquiry, Russia burns dutch flowers
That was two days before the Netherlands and three other countries put to a vote in the UN Security Council a proposal to form a tribunal to prosecute and punish those responsible for shooting down the plane.
The vote forced Russia into the embarrassing position of vetoing the proposal alone. On Aug. 10, Rosselkhoznadzor stepped up inspections for thrips and leaf miner.
On Aug. 11, after prosecutors from the Netherlands said crash investigators had found parts of what could be a Russian-made surface-to-air missile system in or near the debris field in eastern Ukraine, Russian inspectors made a big show of setting fire to boxes of roses and chrysanthemums in two Russian towns.
“These are freshly cut flowers from the Netherlands infected with western California flower thrips,” the chief sanitary inspector for Rosselkhoznadzor, Yekaterina Slakova, said in a televised appearance, as workers burned boxes of roses.
The tit-for-tat has been so obvious that even pro-Kremlin commentators have dropped the pretense, saying the flower burning is intended as a warning to the Netherlands over risks to trade, if the investigation proceeds unfavorably for Russia.
“This is connected to the Malaysian Boeing,” Sergei A. Markov, a former member of parliament in the pro-government United Russia party, said in a telephone interview. “Russia is certain that the Dutch government is falsifying this investigation,” he said, but cannot say so directly.
The stepped-up flower inspections, he said, are the Kremlin’s means of communicating displeasure with the inquiry.
“It is an attempt to talk in not such an obvious way, softly, a bit byzantine,” Markov said of the message of the flower burning. “I generally like byzantine. But this is not a great quality in this case. Our diplomats should have just called things by their names.”
Dutch floral industry officials agree that the flower inspections have been mostly for show, so far.
With its greenhouses, auction houses and trucks and trains running like clockwork, the Netherlands provides an estimated 40 percent of all fresh cut flowers and houseplants sold in Russia, last year worth about U$S314 million (RM1.2 billion) at the current exchange rate.
So far at least, only a few hundred blooms have gone up in flames, not a significant disruption to flower shop deliveries.
“The Russians wanted to show they are serious about the issue, but it didn’t really have a huge impact,” said Robert Roodenburg, director of the Dutch Association of Wholesale Floricultural Products.
Lex van Horssen, a spokesman at FloraHolland, the Netherlands’ largest flower auction house, declined to speculate on the coincidence of the flower burning in Russia and Dutch progress in investigating the plane crash.
“To be quite honest, we have a business to run, and that is something different than the political... (Malay Mail Online)
