Some people take the time and plan out what they are going to do for a month of blogging, picking out ideas. I have tried to do that, and it has worked for the most part but for some reason, I have a feeling that it isn’t really working anymore. Why would that be? Well, I usually write posts for two weeks, and then I take a week off and compile a list of different ideas for the next two weeks.

(Sean Kilpatrick/Canadian Press)All detainees transferred by Canadians to Afghan prisons were likely tortured by Afghan officials, and many of the prisoners were innocent, says a former senior diplomat with Canada’s mission in Afghanistan.Appearing before a House of Commons committee Wednesday, Richard Colvin blasted Canada’s detainee policies and compared them with the policies of Britain and the Netherlands.Colvin said Canada was taking six times as many detainees as British troops and 20 times as many as the Dutch.The detainees were captured by Canadian soldiers then handed over to the Afghan intelligence service, called the NDS.He said unlike the British and Dutch, Canada did not monitor their conditions; took days, weeks or months to notify the Red Cross; kept poor records; and to prevent scrutiny, Canadian Forces leadership concealed this behind “walls of secrecy.”Colvin said the most common forms of torture were beatings, whipping with power cables, the use of electricity, knives, open flames and rape.Internet freedom: Should government have the ability to shut down the internet?The Egyptian government shut down access to the internet and the country’s cellphone data network early Friday, according to media reports. Internet and cellphone data service was unavailable throughout the country, making it impossible for news of the protests.

Start by doing a plank for 30 seconds with forearms on the floor. As time goes on do an additional 30 seconds on your hands. The added incline will challenge you more, as well as, work your arms.
