Current Google Street View Images

Portaltic/EP a fan of the Google application has superimposed images in movement of more than 50 years ago about the current layers of Google Street View. It is an external tool to Google Street View, but using their maps. If currently Google Street View allows users to have the feeling to be walking through the streets thanks to the three-dimensional view, a new tool immerses users in London in 1920 or in the Rome of 1950. The tool There and Then inserts older videos in the three-dimensional current Google Street View images. Thus, if users are looking for London Bridge or the Colosseum in Rome to zoom the image appears inserted a video where appears the same monument or street recorded more than 50 years ago.

This tool does not belong to Google. Keir Clarke, the creator of an unofficial blog about so-called Google Google Maps Mania has developed. So far, Clarke has inserted into the current images 18 videos of different recordings. Lambeth Palace Road in London in 1922, where the houses are of the Parliament, the Opera de Paris in 1956, the Piazza Venezia in Rome in 1950 or St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican in 1960 are some of the videos that are mixed with the more modern images from Google Street View. Meanwhile Clarke has posted an entry on his blog where users asked to their opinion about the tool. I love to know what you think about the application, especially if you think that this interface is intuitive or a bit difficult to understand. So that you feel free to say what you think in the comments, says Clarke. Source of the news: A tool allows you to view historic videos on current Google Street View images

Rwandan Spanish

Lawyer Jordi Palou, representative of the nine Spanish victims whose killings in Rwanda and Congo investigating judge Andreu, believes that the Rwandan travelled convinced that was not going to pass anything, given the background. A week ago, however, they jumped the alerts and the Audiencia Nacional alerted Palou, among others, the casual detention of this member of the Rwandan Patriotic Army (APR), led by Ruanda President Paul Kagame. Extradition judge Andreu and Interpol Spain have already confirmed the identity of the detainee and now expect to United States to deliver it to the Spanish authorities in order to begin the extradition process, which would have to apply, at the request of the magistrate, the Council of Ministers, and placed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs contacting the U.S. State Department. Palou believes that the Spanish Government will do the necessary formalities, since it is a subject that makes direct rrencia to the death of three Spanish citizens and because Majyambere was a hierarchical bottom of Kayumba Nyamwasa, on which South Africa still does not give news to day today. There is no term for United States arises though, if it does not, Palou explains that both the families of the victims and complainants in the process, the International Forum for truth and justice in the Great Lakes of Africa, will proceed to formally ask the Embassy of EE UU in Spain a response and encourage the Congress of deputies to ask for explanations. Who is Justus Majyambere? Captain Justus Majyambere in 1997 was a 408 of the Rwandan Patriotic Army Brigade intelligence officer, according to the indictment from judge Andreu. A protected witness stated during the investigation carried out by the judge that the military headed a group of rapid intervention and planned operations strategy that gave rise to the systematic killings of thousands civilian hutus in the Rwandan region of Ruhengeri and its surroundings (Gisenyi and Cyangugu).

The three aid workers of doctors of the world, M Flors Sirera, Manuel Madarazo and Luis Valtuena, knew the massacres by the information that you provided them with a witness and they themselves to render medical aid. Since that time, became an obstacle to the plans of the APR, which was proposed, according to the auto, forcing the abandonment of NGOs and other international observers in the northeast of Rwanda as well as the border area with the then Zaire to continue attacks in the current Congo and also proceed to the pillaging of resources such as Coltan. The decision to assassinate the Spaniards took it four military, including Kayumba Nyamwasa, and put it into practice, by appointing executors, two others, including Justus Majyambere. Conducted, in addition, an attack cascade to three NGOs to conceal the killings and also to terrorize the population and expatriates in general. After that, all the organizations and United Nations offices retreated towards Kigali, the Rwandan capital. Source of the news: EE UU keeps detained a Rwandan military claimed by killing three Spanish
