Castro heads protest against US mission's news ticker

by EdH / January 24, 2006 7:09 AM PST
President Fidel Castro sent hundreds of thousands of Cuban marchers past the U.S. mission in Havana on Tuesday to protest a five-foot-high (1.5- meter) ticker that streams news and human rights messages across its windows.

I love this. Wish there was a picture. Why didn't someone think of this years ago?

They don't want to send him to Cuba or Vednezuela because he might be tortured. Are you in favor of torture?

Anyway, you know that's not what my post was about. Are you against free speech?

Cuba Offers Free Eye-Surgery for 150,000 US Patients

Cuban President Fidel Castro offered free eye-surgery for 150,000 poor US citizens including air transportation and their accommodations on the island.

President Castro made the announcement during a TV appearance on Sunday, which is part of a series of live appearances in which the Cuban leader provided details on the energy revolution underway in Cuba, an initiative he says will save one billion dollars annually.

He said the eye patients could travel to Florida from where they would be brought to Cuba by plane.

A propaganda ploy of course, but if people want to take advantage of it, why not?

Note that Cubans are still trying desperately to get away from the place. And Castro still won't let them go.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
