Gmail believes that by adding more information about the origin of a message, you can be better informed about who sent the message and can avoid confusion. For example, if someone fakes a message from a sender that you trust, like your bank, you can use this information to see that the message is not really from your trusted sender. The information that we use to display this information is included in the message headers but these headers can be hard to understand. Gmail analyzes this information and displays it in a simple to read format.

History of Cinco de Mayo: Battle of Puebla
In 1861 the liberal Mexican Benito Juárez (1806-1872) became president of a country in financial ruin, and he was forced to default on his debts to European governments. In response, France, Britain and Spain sent naval forces to Veracruz to demand reimbursement. Britain and Spain negotiated with Mexico and withdrew, but France, ruled by Napoleon III (1808-1873), decided to use the opportunity to carve a dependent empire out of Mexican territory. Late in 1861, a well-armed French fleet stormed Veracruz, landing a large French force and driving President Juárez and his government into retreat.
Jose Victoriano Gonzalez-Perez better known as Juan Gris (March 23, 1887 – May 11, 1927) was a Spanish painter and sculptor who lived and worked in France most of his life.
His works are closely connected to the emergence of an innovative artistic genre-Cubism.
Born in Madrid, Gris studied mechanical drawing at the Escuela de Artes y Manufacturas in Madrid from 1902 to 1904, during which time he contributed drawings to local periodicals. From 1904 to 1905 he studied painting with the academic artist José Maria Carbonero.
“This is no ordinary mission. You all read the Bible. You know the history of our people. Our people have overcome the agony of the holocaust. We’ve survived wars in 1948, 1956, 1967, the War of Attrition in 1970, and the Yum Kippur War. And mow we are faced with the greatest threat in the long history of Israel—annihilation and destruction of our country with atomic bombs by a madman terrorist who cares nothing for human life. We must not allow him to achieve the ability to build the bomb that could destroy us. That’s what this mission this afternoon is all about. Protecting our country. The future of Israel rests on your skill and ability to destroy that nuclear reactor. You must be successful—or we as a people are doomed. This is a pivotal point in the history of Israel. If we are to live by the sword, let us see that it’s kept strong in the hand rather than at our throat.” Chief of Staff General Raful Eitan who had just lost a son, was addressing the soldiers who were going on a mission, on Sunday, June 7, 1981 to destroy the nuclear reactor in Al-Tuwaitha, IRAQ
One of the pilots on this successful mission later died when the space shuttle Columbia broke over the vastness of Texas as it reentered the atmosphere. Ilan Ramon was the mission’s youngest pilot and first Israeli Astronaut.
The irony of this story is that Israel is now concerned about the vulnerability of its nuclear reactor. They are considering deactivating the reactor to prevent an attack that would contaminate a vast amount of land if it happens to be a successful attack.
Last month as the holidays were approaching I received an e-mail from France. It wanted me to verify my Visa Card by giving them all the information you see in the form below. Are you kidding? I don’t know why these people who go fishing for information think there are so many stupid Americans who will just fill out any form that is sent their way. The interesting part of this form is the logo for American Express and Mastercard. These people not satisfied to just verify only your Visa cards have also extended for your convenience, Verified by Visa for your American Express and Mastercard credit cards.
Why am I seeing extra information next to the sender’s name?

shut down its last operating Internet Service Provider to prevent the masses from communicating instantly with each other. What was ignited a few weeks ago in Tunisia, with the successful overthrow of President Zine el Abidine Ben Ali, has given hope to the Egyptian masses who have rallied to force changes in Hosni Mubarak’s administration. The swearing in of a new cabinet and a new Vice-President, Omar Suleiman, who has promised new elections, constitutional reform, and an open dialogue with political parties, have not extinguished the flames of discontent. Adding to the uncertainty of President Hosni Mubarak ‘s continued rule, is the role of The Egyptian army which has said it will not use force against protesters who have taken to the streets to demand his resignation. There is a climax to this revolutionary drama which will probably end with the exile of Mubarak to France or the United States and the continued rule of the military with a puppet president at its head. Fearing the wild fire of unrest are the other Arab nations, whose loyal allies have always been the United States and England.

2005 Raids by police in the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Greece and Turkey have resulted in the smashing of an international people smuggling ring that made million of euros trafficking people from the Middle East. Criminal groups in the United Kingdom, Greece, Norway, Sweden, Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan were involved in the ring that smuggled most of the migrants in boats.
Immigrants and their families, were forced to pay huge sums to get to Europe, or, in rare cases, North America.
The network, set up five years ago and run by an Iraqi Kurd, 30-year-old Ali Ako – nicknamed Arsalan – was allegedly managed from Rome.
The three-year operation netted 53 alleged smugglers. Paris prosecutor Jean-Claude Marin said 22 of them were in France, 18 in Italy, seven in Britain, three in Turkey and three in Greece.
It was “the biggest-ever simultaneous operation ever conducted on an international level” by agencies tackling people-smuggling, Mr Marin said.
2011 Still trying to stem the tide of illegal immigration, Italian authorities have recently broken up an Afghan-people-smuggling ring. Arrested in this case were 26 alleged smugglers in Italy. Further arrests in France and Germany are expected.
In Belgium and France, lawmakers are attacking national and religious traditions by claiming women who wear veils are being forced do so by their families. These politician’s interference into the traditions of those who left their countries of birth, is troubling. Why should immigrants conform to the traditions of their new nations? That these nations are considering changing laws to force women to not wear veils is ridiculous. This should not be a concern to the nations that allowed them to emigrate. Respect of religious freedom and traditions, should include tolerance to whatever dress or covering any immigrants’ traditions require.
In the United States of America, lawmakers are still dealing with the problem of the illegal immigrant. The “Dream Act” which would have allowed the children of those who entered U.S. soil illegally, the right of citizenship, did not pass a vote by the House of Representatives on December 18, 2010.
The United States of America does not require its habitants to prove their citizenship. Those born in the United States, are not able to prove citizenship with the documents they carry in their wallets. Most have a driver’s license, a library card, a few dollars, an insurance card, a photograph and a few receipts. With these documents, if a law was passed requiring the proof of citizenship before a hospital could administer aid, most would fail the citizenship test. There aren’t many in the United States that out of habit carry their passports or birth certificates. To make the identification of U.S. citizens easier, perhaps a card should be issued to all who can prove their right to be legally in the United States..
Instead of attacking the poor illegal immigrant, U.S. legislators should pass a law requiring all citizens to register for a national identity card.
