View of the Costa Concordia taken on January 14, 2012, after the cruise ship ran aground and keeled over off the Isola del Giglio, last night. Three people died and about 70 were missing after an Italian cruise ship with more than 4,000 people on board ran aground and keeled over, sparking scenes of panic. The Costa Concordia was on a trip around the Mediterranean when it apparently hit a reef near the island of Giglio on Friday, only a few hours into its voyage, as passengers were sitting down for dinner.

The owner of the luxury liner that ran aground off the coast of Italy, killing at least six people, said its captain had made "errors of judgment" as the search continued for the missing. "It seems that the commander made errors of judgement that had serious consequences," said a statement from the liner's owner Costa Crociere, referring to Captain Francesco Schettino. "The route followed by the ship was not the right one," Verusio said, accusing Schettino of having "approached Giglio island in a very clumsy manner."

Pier Luigi Foschi, head of the Costa Crociere line, said the company had commissioned several firms to look at the best way to salvage the 114,500-tonne vessel lying on its side. The 290-metre (950-feet) long Costa Crociere, which is 17 decks high, has a large gash in its hull from running on to rocks before it capsized on Friday night. Coastguards said the half-submerged giant ship had now stabilised as weather conditions off the Tuscan coast improved but added that there was still a risk the hulk could slip off a rocky shelf into the open sea and sink entirely.

    Hey anyone,
    I’m a beginner to Drupal , and currently developing my very first site with drupal web hosting 7.0.
    While I began to test various web hosting programs, I came across this trouble of which could be the best solution to support Drupal 7.0?
    What¡¯re the few things I’ll need to remember for the web hosting, especially, because it’s going to have high-res pictures, do I mainly seek higher bandwidth & data transfer options against space?
    Any help on this can be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks a lot.

    Chief that was very well put but one important thing to add you and Your Fellow Officers and Firefighters and our People in the Service are doing what they want to do not bcsauee they are being forced too. Some including PD will run into a Gunfight risking their lives to save someone they do not even know, Maybe even the Bad Guy from being killed by a mob, Then they will say Well I was just doing what I get paid to do . Most know it is not about the MoneyA Police Officer 24 hour a day is sometimes the first person a citizen will call or see and you become not only the Police but a Doctor, Lawyer, Priest, Landlord, Psychiatrist and more until You can determine what type of assistance the caller needs .Unfortunately a lot of People only remember and talk about their bad Experiences that they probably caused themselves then they judge Everyone by that , It is unfortunate the good things that are done on a daily basis go unnoticed .Since 9/11 the whole world has changed by that senseless act and we must never forget the sacrifices that were made then and now yrs latter by the people who are diligently protecting and watching out for us allThank You for being there and Leading by example and Your Department for making this a safer City for us allDon Crozier Sr.Ps I know you read and approve post Sometimes I do not have the best spelling or grammar so if you see something that looks bad or inappropriate Please , at 65 and a few to many head injuries Not as sharp as I use to be Thanks Don C

    Very informative post, love the way in which you write and I think that the wdkolenge helps in a way. I don’t usually say this, however I think it is a great job done. For those who wish to trade links, I might be more than pleased to offer a hyperlink back to your site. Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers

    This website is a preceft example of how the internet serves to provide a public platform for people who otherwise couldn’t organize their thoughts, in order to foist their uninformed, unreasoned, bombastic, lurid agenda on other naive, unquestioning people, who latch onto sensationalism as a form of entertainment. Nearly dead ? Really? Because I have seen the nearly dead, and trust me they don’t look anything like Kimi does in the starving picture. Strangely enough, Mr. Benson doesn’t provide a vet report to support his declaration. And any suggestion, large or small, that this shelter is in any way like Auschwitz is vile. Despite his allusions to an erudite background, apparently neither Mr. Benson or many of his admirers have ever been to Auschwitz, or can do more than recall some faint, high school history class notion of what happened at Auschwitz. Shame on you. Shame, shame, shame on you. If You the Public have a fervent desire to help animals, be a responsible volunteer. And for God’s sake, be a responsible person. Don’t take one person’s word (or website posting) for it. Use your eyes, your ears, your judgment. Go to the shelter, volunteer, look around, ask questions, listen to lots of people, do the grunt work, take lots of pictures, bring bleach and towels and food. Go to the county government meetings, watch what happens to the budget, demand a fair share for the shelter, and the people who work there. Or maybe some anonymous person with nothing but anecdotal evidence from people they don’t know or can identify, could show up at your job and demand you be fired. If you see something that needs to be reported report it. I don’t want to hear that you are afraid. Don’t snark around and file some anonymous posting or complaint you better do it in person, and loudly. But take warning, the rest of us will hold you to it; you don’t just get to care about the cute little puppies and kittens. You don’t get to create nifty little websites for cheeky smashups and self-promotion and call it job done. The rest of us will be watching.

    Great blog! I really love how it is erfoftless on my eyes and also the information is well written. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your rss feed which really should do the trick! Have a nice day!

  7. Beberoger says:

    I see quite a few blogs that look interesting and raelly worth a read. There’s absolutely nothing worse than browsing through countless blah blah blogs just to find a couple that hold ones interest. Thanks. Good work!
