Mass Graves Of Sri Lanka Photo Essay

In Sri Lanka, SriLanka on March 2, 2014 at 00:01

I have posted exhaustively on the war crimes committed by Sri Lanka in trying to exterminate the Tamils there.

Mass murder was no an exception but a rule.

Mass graves keep on coming out.

Today a new mass grave has been found.

A look at the Mass Graves.

Mass Garve at Matale, Sri Lanka

Mass Grave, Matale

The total number of human skeletal remains unearthed from a mass grave behind the Matale Hospital has risen to 142 since the excavation started in early November last year.


The skeletal remains have been sent for carbon dating in a bid to establish the era the grave came into existence, officials said.



Some argue that the grave contains the victims of the aborted 1971 armed insurrection of the Janatha Vimukthi Perumana (JVP) in 1971 while there are others who say it could go back to the 18th century during the colonial era.

[TamilNet, Monday, 01 October 2012, 22:21 GMT]
An official who recently visited the outskirts of Mu’l’livaaykkaal with the soldiers of the Sri Lanka Army told TamilNet this week that he had personally witnessed skeletal remains of hundreds of slain people surfacing along the few kilometers long, L-shaped bunker, running from Vadduvaakal to northwards along the land of the genocidal onslaught. A vast area is still not cleared and is strictly prohibited from access to anyone except SL military officials. “There are booby traps and UXOs. Rotten automatic rifles and RPG ammunitions are lying around in the area. When I walked across a bunker, I was able to sense that it was a bunker of mass slaughter. As the bodies buried underneath have rotten, the soil was going under as we walked across,” he said. Meanwhile, some other mass graves show the use of chemicals that have burnt even the bones to become ashes, journalists report.



The end of war in Sri Lanka, captured for posterity by Google Earth published last week by Groundviews was the first look at the end of the war in Sri Lanka through historical satellite imagery freely accessible via Google Earth. The article was an open invitation for those using Google Earth to scan for and alert others over areas and artefacts of interest, that in turn could strengthen discussions around the hellish final weeks of war in Sri Lanka. Given the nature of imagery from around this period and centred on Nandikadal, the article explicitly noted,

What Google Maps and Earth does NOT enable one to do, given (1) the quality of some of the historical imagery (which sometimes features extensive cloud cover of vast regions) and (2) the large gaps between the available historical imagery (mid March, late May, after the official end of the war and killing of the LTTE’s leader, then mid-June and early August) is any robust analysis on when shelling in a specific region took place, and importantly, by whom.

Shared widely on Facebook, Twitter and via email, the article clearly indicated that one of the best references today for the research and study of the end of war in Sri Lanka is Google Earth. Imagery accessible via Google’s servers simply isn’t available through other sources or archived elsewhere in the public domain.

Whereas the previous article studied the sheer scale and extent of the destruction and human displacement in Sri Lanka during the final phase of the war, between March and May 2009, the focus here is on mass graves in and around the so-called Civilian Safe Zones (CSZs). Our first article was anchored to two key UNOSAT reports. The present study is anchored to the High-Resolution Satellite Imagery and the Conflict in Sri Lanka report by the Scientific Responsibility, Human Rights and Law Programme of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), published in August 2009. As with the UNOSAT reports, the AAAS study – commissioned by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International – was met with official condemnation and Ministry of Defence counter-analysis after its public release, largely anchored to the sections dealing with the removal of IDP structures within the CSZ between 6 and 10 May 2009,..

UFOs On Moon Sighted Google Maps

In Astrophysics on January 20, 2014 at 19:33

Google maps have captured objects resembling UFOs on Moon and there is speculation that it could be  a base for Alien ships.

NASA is yet to deny this.


“A strange unnatural giant anomaly has been found on Google Earth/Moon by videographer wowforreeel.

UFO triangulate on Moon.

UFOs Triangulate on Moon

Wowforreeel: “After going there on Google Moon and staring at this thing for quite a long time I can say yes, it is really there, not faked and I have no clue what it is. I found nothing else like it in any of the other craters.”

Is it an alien moon base or alien craft or is it possible it could be a facility, as part of a secret space project, built by humans and used for storing and launching ‘UFO’ spacecraft?

Or is it a giant triangular man-made spacecraft? The seven lights on the perfectly formed triangle wedge seem to be intelligently designed.

Is this evidence of the existence of the secret space program (Project Solar Warden) what Gary McKinnon claimed to have found on the US government computers?

Coordinates: 22°42’38.46″N 142°34’44.52″E”


Here it can be recalled that recently a terrified pilot of a passenger jet reported a near miss in which a rugby ball-shaped UFO passed within a few feet of his aircraft while flying near Heathrow Airport, baffling aviation authorities in London. The captain of the A320 Airbus told British aviation authorities who have investigated the incident that he was certain the object was going to crash into his aircraft and ducked as it headed towards him. The investigation has been unable to establish any earthly identity for the mysterious craft, which left the aircrew with no time to take evasive action. The incident occurred while the plane was cruising at 34,000ft, around 32 km west of the airport, over the Berkshire countryside, The Telegraph reported.

Blog Plagiarism How To Write Safely

In Blogging on December 26, 2013 at 18:38

The subject of copying ,Plagiarism and Blogposts is very complicated.

People write posts to be read widely.


Do Not copy message.

One has to authenticate a Story or information in a Post.

(As when you write on Subjects, .present research papers where you need authenticity.

You then have open sources like wiki.)

If one is commenting on an issue,one has to quote the source.

While quoting ‘portions of the news,Story has to be posted in the post one is writing.

What is Plagiarism in a Blog?

In general quoting some one else’s post/information  word for word ,quotes without permission,or quoting information provided by others as one’s own with slight modifications.is generally classified as Plagiarism.

If one were to post entirely on one’s own, the post may not be interesting without references, , in the case of information, there will be lack of authenticity.

And again Link building?

Does it not amount to using others whole posts under one Link?

There is no answer to this query.

There are soft-wares to check Plagiarism.

Copyscape is one good site, where one gets to know how the material of similar nature is in the web and it calculates and lets you know what percentage of words are in common.

And there is also the point of Google penalizing your site for Plagiarism and thee are chances of Google Page ranker passing over your site.

You may find more information on Plagiarism, Penalty for Plagiarism at


However, it is safe to cite sources and mark it clearly in the Posts.

It would be good if the source is marked as ‘Source’ in the Post with a Link of the relevant material quoted.

This applies to images as well.

Quote as .image from or image source  the link of the web page from where you are using,

In some case you may get permission from the Authors to use them in your posts.

How many words or what percentage one may use from sources?

It is very delicate and depends on the nature of the Post, the word count of your Post.

It is safe to quote with source maximum 200 words in a Post of 800 words or roughly 25 % at the most.

So it is better to be original and wherever we feel necessary we may use other posts, material with citations, like marked as Source, with words from the source not exceeding 200 words in a Post of 800 words.

Lesser than this is ideal and this depends on your judgement.

‘I am No Robot’ Telemarketing Robot Audio

In lifestyle on December 14, 2013 at 20:23

Read and hear this.

Sales Person or Robot that denies itself?

Or both?

So, when I saw that an apparent robot telemarketer named Samantha West had randomly called a TIME editor and denied she/it/they was a robot, I wondered: where could I buy such an interactive voicebot?

This query led me down a strange rabbit hole. And along the way, I discovered that Samantha West may be something even stranger than a telemarketing robot. Samantha West may be a human sitting in a foreign call center playing recorded North American English through a soundboard.

Clearly, this is not human conversation: there are repeated laughs and weird phrases. “She failed several other [humanity] tests,” Time wrote. “When asked ‘What vegetable is found in tomato soup?’ she said she did not understand the question. When asked multiple times what day of the week it was yesterday, she complained repeatedly of a bad connection.”

It seems so open and shut.

So, Time’s story ran with the plausible headline, “Meet the Robot Telemarketer Who Denies She’s a Robot.” And many other blogs went with that explanation, too.

But if this kind of robotic telemarketing is possible, why don’t we see it more often? Every other kind of spam, if it is technically possible, becomes pervasive.

* **

The first step to acquiring a voicebot like this was to figure out what the people selling it might call it. Certainly they would not refer to their services as “robot telemarketing.”

I started looking for the right jargon to Google. As it turns out, there are two key phrases: “interactive voice response” and “outbound.” Interactive voice response refers to telephone systems that can process what you’re saying and respond appropriately (even intelligently at times). Outbound call centers make calls; the inverse, inbound, refers to systems that receive calls from customers.

So, put them together and you have, “Outbound IVR,” which Datamonitor projected should be a half billion dollar market by now.
