Missing is a show about Becca Winstone who used to be a trained CIA agent. Now her son, who is 18, goes missing and Becca tries to find him. That means that she will have to revisit her past connecting with old friends. And enemies.
It is a great show to watch because:
-it shows how much your family will do for you;
-it takes place in different countries;
-it is watched by over 7 million people;
-inspires people to become apart of the CIA.
Did you know that before and after the European tourist season, governments clean the streets from cats and dogs in, for example: Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Turkey?
Many animals are poisoned and die a very painful death, others are beaten to death, or hanged and strangled. Many are hit by cars and left to die.
Some end up in horrible captivity where life is frightening and tormenting, and many die of disease or starvation. Enclosures in these countries are hot in summer and cold in winter. The animals die from heat stroke or freeze to death. The country and the business sector does not want that these animals disturb the good impression of their country and affect tourism negatively.
None of these countries have made efforts to curb the stray animal population by neutering campaigns, or information about neutering to the public. Instead, these countries chose to poison or otherwise get rid of their abandoned, unwanted companion animals. Never or rarely do they punish someone for abuse or murder of animals. These countries are making a strict difference between an animal with an owner and an abandoned animal. In these countries, an abandoned animal can be treated as badly as you like and in many eyes they are seen as unwanted debris that disrupts the community.
Some of these countries still enjoy the torture of bulls during bullfights and have a variety of traditions in which animals are involved and tormented. In all these countries, dogs are used for hunting. These dogs are treated very badly and starvation to death is common between the hunting seasons. They are often killed or abandoned after a bad game.
We want a concert of Japanese singer Namie Amuro in Italy!
Semere is Eritrean young man. He sought asylum in Italy, but his wife and 2 children were in the UK. He came to the UK, so he could be with them and sought asylum here. He is about to be deported back to Italy on Wednesday 2 March 2011, despite having his 2 little children here.
He hates the idea of being removed from his children. He is a loving father and a devoted Christian. We trust God that he will be reunited with his family and the deportation will be refused on compassionate grounds.

Hamed Rouhinejad suffering of Multiple Scleroses is denied medical care and dying in an Iranian prison
To Whom It May Concern:
It has come to my attention that there is a political prisoner in Iran suffering from MS, yet the Islamic Republic refuses to allow him to receive treatment or appropriate medical care. His name is Hamed Rouhinejad, and his story is here:
In an exclusive interview with Rooz, Nasrin Sotoudeh’s husband announced that his wife, a lawyer jailed by the Iranian government, has gone on hunger strike. He says, “in a brief, three-second phone call, my wife was only able to say that she has gone on hunger strike since Mehr 3 [September 25]. After the said that, and immediately after she mentioned the word ‘threat,’ the call was suddenly cut off.”
This petition is intended to get released a complete recording of the opera Mitridate rè di Ponto (KV 87/74a) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart under the label Naïve Musique with Jean Christophe Spinosi conducting Ensemble Matheus with the following singers playing the specified roles:

Farnace: Sonia Prina
Sifare: Roberta Invernizzi
Aspasia: Sandrine Piau
Ismene: Raffaela Milanesi
Arbate: Marianna Pizzolato
Marzio: Stefano Ferrari
I am confident that this could be a revolution for the research and diagnosis of multiple sclerosis ”— Dr. Paolo Zamboni.
If there is a possiblity that MS can be cured this procedure should be looked into. This experimental surgery Dr. Zamboni performed on his wife offers hope that MS, which afflicts 2.5 million people worldwide, can be cured and even largely prevented.

This is a petition for abolishing the law in Venice (Italy) that forbids people to feed pigeons in the WHOLE city and if one is caught throwing crumbs to the birds is fined. The Venetian community has also ordered the killing of hundreds of pigeons.
The purpose of this law is to reduce the number of pigeons in order to protect the historical monuments, but to reduce it by letting the pigeons die of starvation or by killing them is cruel and inhuman. The historical monuments could be protected in different ways, e.g. by fixing spines or wires on the buildings that prevent pigeons from perching on them and by cleaning the monuments regularly with water. Pigeons could also be fed with sterilizing medicines so that their number remained under control.
Regarding the common fears that pigeons could be dangerous for public health, expert vets (e.g. Enrico Moriconi, President ASVeP –Onlus – Cultural Veterinary Association for Public Health, Torino and Roberto Nisini, Superior Institute of Public Health, Rome) in their articles published on the internet prove that they pose absolutely no danger for public health.
The law against pigeons is based only on wrong preconceptions and a hatred for the birds which unfortunately is shared by many Italian people.
The target of this petition is to defend animal rights and abolish this harsh law. This law is unfair not only to animals but also to animal lovers who are punished for showing compassion to the birds by feeding them -in other words, for their acts of kindness and love. This is a law against PERSONAL FREEDOM as it does not allow people who love animals to practice their beliefs and express their good feelings towards birds. It is therefore against both ANIMAL AND HUMAN RIGHTS. The purpose of law is to eliminate evil, but instead of serving that purpose, the Venetian law in question incriminates innocent people and causes endless suffering to birds. In Venice there are not many trees and seeds so the birds cannot survive easily without the help of sensitive people.
Pigeons are the tamest and friendliest birds. They offer joy to many people, especially to old lonely people, tourists who feel welcomed by the friendly Venetian birds (which have been a tourist attraction for many years), and children who invite them to eat from their hands. Because of their innocence, pigeons are traditionally associated with peace and spirituality. During the world-wars they were also used for carrying important messages and saved the lives of many people.
These beautiful birds and the sensitive people who care for animals (which are weak and defenseless) deserve our help and support. This harsh law that is against animal and human rights should be abolished.
Silvio Berlusconi today (11th May 2009) announced that he and his government do not want a multi ethnic Italy. We disagree.
Anche l'Italia all'Eurofestival 2010! Dal 1997, la RAI ha deciso di non partecipare più a questa competizione canora europea, nata nel 1956 e che ha visto tra i fondatori proprio l'Italia; tuttavia tale rassegna è considerata un evento importantissimo in tutti gli altri paesi europei, al punto che nelle ultime edizioni si è arrivati ad avere ben 43 paesi partecipanti, ed è un peccato che l'Italia non debba partecipare; se però firmiamo in tanti, può darsi che per il 2010 ci saremo anche noi!!!

In recent weeks, Romany people in Italy have been subjected to police registration, by means such as fingerprinting, and to forcible rehousing. The Italian government claims this is part of their efforts to control immigration but the actions smack of racism and are a gross violation of basic human rights.
In May 2008 rumours of an abduction of a baby girl by a Gypsy woman in Naples led to an outbreak of racist violence against Roma camps. The response by Italy's Interior Minister Roberto Maroni to this was “that is what happens when gypsies steal babies”.
That this can happen in Europe in the 21st century, 53 years after the defeat of Nazism and Italian fascism is extremely worrying. On 10th July the European Parliament called the fingerprinting of Gypsies in Italy a clear act of racial discrimination and urged the authorities to stop it. The EU assembly said the measure is not supported by EU human rights treaties and that EU citizens of Roma, or Gypsy, origin must not be treated differently from others in Italy, who are not required to submit their fingerprints.
In Austria, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which monitors and reports on the human rights situation in its 56 participating states, including Italy, also expressed serious reservations about Italy's handling of Gypsies.
The Roma suffered greatly in the Holocaust and I worry that the relative apathy towards the actions of the Italian Government, let alone to far right parties and those with far right sympathies across Europe, will give the far right more confidence to undertake more extreme actions that recall terrible memories of the 1930s and 40s. As history shows, if people and nations remain silent bystanders then fascism can take root and I think that a hard stand is required.
I am well aware that Italy, like many countries in Europe, is concerned about immigration, crime and so on, but am also keenly aware that treating the Roma as second class citizens is not an answer and is a fall-back to the less glorious days of Europe's recent history.

I would also be very grateful if you would pass on news of this petition to people you know.
The 42 year old Accounts Manager from La Felguera, Spain shocked Football Fans worldwide as he gifted Italy a Free Kick after Alan Hutton was the victim of a heavy barge/tackle when he was nowhere near the ball, by Italian player Chiellini.
Everyone could see it as a Scotland Free Kick but somehow the bungling Manuel and his eejit of a linesman Juan Carlos Jimenez thought otherwise.
It was not the only decision he got wrong that day, but it was the most costly.
We wish we could replay the game again but this is the next best thing and we call on UEFA and FIFA to grow a pair of balls and finally sort out the bungling referees of the world.
We want Justice for Scotland and Justice for the lads who played their heart and soul out on the rain soaked Hampden pitch on Saturday 17th November 2007.
It has been a long time that animals have been betrayed and killed only to produce unuseful fur coats. Now, I invite you to view this shocking video and sign this petition to stop all this!
E' da tanto tempo che gli animali vengono maltrattati per unitili scopi, come la produzione di pellicce. Ma a volte si passa eccessivamente il limite. Guardate questo video shock e firmate la petizione.
Il Convento di Malvagna sta ormai crollando sotto i nostri occhi, ed enorme è il senso di impotenza che ci pervade. Più passa il tempo e peggiore è la situazione.
A tutti gli appassionati di Harry Potter,
si evidenzia l'estrema necessità che le trasposizioni dai libri ai film rispettino lo stile potteriano ed entrino nell'animo di ciascuno di noi dandoci quella magia che troviamo leggendo i libri.
Non sempre questo è successo; a volte dettagli importanti vengono sorvolati o abbreviati dai registi.
In particolar modo il 5° film ha sorvolato su alcuni particolari e non ha soddisfatto a pieno queste aspettative.
Dato che lo stesso regista dirigerà anche il 6° film della saga proponiamo, con la seguente petizione, che l'ultimo film e forse più importante sia diretto da un regista straordinario che ha la giusta fantasia e genialità per dirigere una storia così magica ed avventurosa come quella di Harry Potter; il regista, recentemente premiato con il leone d'oro alla carriera a Venezia è il geniale Tim Burton.
This petition is for all the Harry Potter fans.
We strongly desire a transposition from books to movies that is as close as possible to the very Harry Potter style, and that could positively affect each and everyone of us, keeping that very magic we find every time we read the books.
Unfortunately it hasn’t always been so; sometimes important details get lost or even set-aside by the directors.
That’s what happened with the 5th movie, HP and The Order of The Phoenix, where the director had discarded relevant events, fact that left many fans really disappointed.
Since the same director is going to direct the 6th chapter of the saga, as well, we suggest with this petition that the last and most important movie of the whole saga would be done by a great director with the right addition of imagination, and brilliance in order to transpose such a magical and adventurous story as the one of Harry Potter as JKR wrote it.
The director we would like to suggest is none other that the newly awarded with a Golden Lion for his career at the last Venice Film Festival, Tim Burton.
FIRMA PER RIMUOVERE GENTILONI DAL RUOLO DI SINDACO.
Italy is the only country in Europe unable to fight against phenomenon like Mafia and Corruption from 1945 to our days.
Magistrates are unable to do their work as torture and corruption are deeply rooted in Italian history and society.
FIFA President Sepp Blatter has further infuriated Italian fans by apologising to Australia for the Azzurri’s World Cup victory.
The second round match was goalless and heading for extra time following Marco Materazzi’s controversial straight red card when Fabio Grosso fell over a Lucas Neill challenge.
Francesco Totti stepped up to convert the stoppage-time penalty with the last kick of the game on June 26 and send Italy on towards their eventual Final triumph.
Australian supporters were angry at the decision by Spanish referee Luis Medina Cantalejo and the FIFA President stepped out of his official role to make a bizarre announcement.
“I agree with them and I would like to apologise to our fans in Australia,” said Blatter. “The Socceroos should have gone into the quarter-finals in place of Italy, because they were up to beating Italy.”
The Azzurri went unbeaten throughout the entire tournament, notching up four wins and two draws in the 90 minutes – seeing off Germany 2-0 in extra time and beating France on penalties in the Final.
Blatter had already caused controversy with his comments after the July 9 Berlin match by stating it was “a tragedy” to see the World Cup assigned on a shoot-out.
This was the second time the trophy had been decided this way, as in 1994 Italy lost to Brazil in Pasadena.
The FIFA President also failed to hand over the World Cup to Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro. He was in the stands, but UEFA President Lennart Johansson took these duties instead. It has never been clarified why the change was made.
"I think the referees were not at their best," continued Blatter. "I think they were too well prepared or not looked after the right way. They were in a military camp situation. And I think there was too much cheating on the players' side.”
Yet Italy also felt aggrieved by the refereeing in the Australia match, as Medina Cantalejo showed Materazzi a straight red card for a late, but by no means violent, tackle on midfielder Mark Bresciano.
He didn't have time to apologise for the Azzurri's exit in Korea/Japan...

Each year, around 100,000 horses are exported from Central and Eastern Europe for slaughter in Italy, France and Belgium in what can fairly be described as one of the cruelest and least regulated aspects of Europe's live animal trade.
Poland is the biggest exporter of live horses for slaughter in Europe. Ten years ago there were one million horses in Poland but that number has now been reduced to 500,000. Nevertheless, each year, 87,000 leave Poland to be slaughtered for meat. 90 per cent go to Italy and 10 per cent to France and Belgium. Horses endure horrendously long journeys. One of the furthest destinations is Sardinia, a journey of 2500km (1500 miles) which may take as long as 95 hours. Roads are often extremely pot-holed and drivers usually travel too fast.
Where do the horses come from?
Horses of all shapes and sizes are sold for slaughter but the majority are heavy working horses, chestnut in colour and gentle in nature. Most horses are owned privately. There are also many racehorses and riding school horses. Often horses come from Lithuania and as far as Russia through Poland and on to Italy. Many horses are old, diseased, injured and even blind and because of the high demand, even fit and healthy horses, and youngsters are sold. Foals are thought to be a 'health food' so are highly sought after.
Who owns the trade?
The major registered horse traders in Poland are: Animex SA Warsaw (Owned by Smithfields Foods USA) and Cosmos Czestochowa. The average price a horse fetches is £250.
Why Polish horses?
Consumers in Italy demand vast amounts of horsemeat - thousands of tonnes. Italy's terrain is unsuitable for horses as much of it is mountainous. Polish horses pay the price as they are relatively cheap to buy and laws and regulations are easily broken. Polish drivers are told not to water their horses. Italians demand 'unsaturated meat' so drivers are told that watering the horses will give them colic. This has no scientific reasoning and is a complete fallacy. There is clearly no consideration for the welfare of the horses.
The dangers the horses face include overcrowding, which can result in them falling and being trampled on. These dangers increase as the journey progresses because of the practice of loading additional horses en route through Poland.
There is a notorious lack of veterinary inspection, so by the time the horses reach the Czech border, they are often ill or injured. It is supposedly illegal to transport diseased or injured animals from Poland and these horses should be off loaded. Viva!'s investigation reveals however, that sick and injured horses are being transported and rest periods are being ignored. After just a three hour break - rather than 24 hours required by law - horses are reloaded onto the lorries to continue their last journey regardless of their condition.
From Cieszyn, the horses are trucked all the way to Slovenia through the Czech Republic and then onwards through Slovakia and Hungary. This circuitous route is to avoid the stricter veterinary controls presently in force in Austria. Although common this practice is illegal and prolongs the travelling time for many hours. The swaying trucks make it difficult for the horses to remain upright, especially when they are tightly tethered to the vehicle bars. This is carried out to stop them biting each other and is prohibited by law.
Often horses lose their balance inside the lorry and fall. Once down, they are likely to be trampled and wounded by their companions. For injured horses and smaller ponies and foals, this combination of overcrowding and lack of segregation by size can be deadly. Downed horses may be unable to rise again, resulting in their struggling desperately to regain their feet, being urinated and defecated on and stood on, often trampled to death.
Upon arrival at staging points, fallen horses are either dragged off the truck with chains or are subjected to violent treatment to induce them to stand. This can involve brutal kickings, beatings with heavy sticks or having an electric cattle prod inserted into their rectum. By the time horses reach Hungary, just half way through their journey, most are injured, exhausted and dehydrated. Some are already dying or dead.
Horses enter the EU at Goriozia in Northern Italy, on the Slovenian border, by which time increasing numbers are in an advanced stage of physical and mental deterioration or dead. Many still face long journeys - on to the west coast of Italy and onwards by ferry to Sardinia.
At the slaughterhouse
Arriving at the abattoir, horses are again brutally treated, driven are dragged into the killing factory. The normal process of slaughter is stunning - required by law - followed by throat cutting. The method of stunning is the captive bolt pistol, which drives a metal bolt into the forehead. All too often this process is ignored or done incompetently and the horses regain consciousness while their throats are being slit. Many are slaughtered in full view of their companions, which is a further contravention of the law.
