Not only did the “world change” on that day, but the lexicon of that world changed as well. Phrases like ‘war on terror’ and ‘axis of evil’ became the new stereotypes of American foreign policy. Al-Qaeda went from legitimate enemy to a scapegoat-like collective term for anything the White House and Pentagon wanted to achieve. More money? Yes, it’s necessary to continue the war on terror. More troops? Yes, to battle Al- Qaeda and prevent attacks on American soil. Since 2001, the military’s cumulative spending has reached a staggering $6 TRILLION. The war in Iraq has so far cost the United States $140 billion just in interest.

Many were content to blame all this on the war machine of the Bush administration, and many Americans hoped that with Barack Obama a new, more peaceful, era would begin. But despite their differences, there are just too many eerie similarities between the two.

Both men sought United Nations approval for their attacks – and each justified their pre-emptive attacks on “humanitarian” grounds. Both called their actions ‘pre-emptive’ – saving the world from weapons of mass destruction purportedly hidden by Saddam Hussein, and a potential slaughter in Libya. Interestingly enough, both Iraq and Libya have vast oil reserves, both Hussein and Gaddafi were very much anti-Israeli in their policies and neither Bush nor Obama presented clear-cut exit strategies for their campaigns.

There is no specific formula for creativity. However, there are many tips and techniques that being acquired by experience and curious 'learning', but first of all, I believe that the process is accumulative and not just like easy.

1. Be Patient:
Patience is, by far, the second most important factor. Every e-author or editor or blogger wants to deliver his/her 'message' to audience. Nevertheless, Google has changed its searching 'algorithm' this year (2014), so new bloggers must be patient to guarantee "on-ground feet" within millions of websites.

2. Original Content:
Don't steal contents. Search engines are smarter than ever. Every day, I catch stolen ideas but I don't care as I know readers are too smart to "catch" thieves. However, Quotations, citing and references apply credibility to your content, so don't be hesitated to refer and backlink to the source or more info. sites. Original content is, by far, the most important factor.

3. Respect Your Concept:
If the option between your concept and popularity (high ranking), I will recommend you (and I) to choose your concept, because simply your site/blog would be deformed from the content point of view.

4. Contact Blog Mates And Admiring Web Masters.
Don't be hesitated to contact other bloggers and/or writers. This will add experience, on one hand. And assist you to deliver your contents, on the other hand.

5. Link Your Blog To Social Media:
An important step, albeit I hate facebook.

6. Good Luck.

Illustration: Spine injury (Truthdig ©) | 
A knife attack put Darek Fidyka on his back for two years, but an amazing medical procedure appears to have partially mended his spinal cord.

The BBC reports that researchers and doctors in the U.K. and Poland figured out how to transplant cells from Fidyka’s nose to his spine, along with a bit of nervous tissue from his ankle. The olfactory ensheathing cells taken from the nose are key, because they’re the only cells in the nervous system that regenerate as we age through adulthood.

According to the Beeb, Fidyka has a long way to go, but he can now walk with some assistance outside the hospital.

Ebola and ISIS are the stars of news sites and blogs.

Ebola:
Every other year, a new viral strain annoy people. Chronologically, SARS, Birds(Avian) Flu, Swine Flu, then another 'advanced' strain of SARS appeared in the middle east (seriously, some theorists referred it to camels) and finally Ebola rises.
I agree with editor of Moon of Alabama when he said: “40-70% of the Ebola infected people are likely to die from it. (That is not as deadly as life, mind you, as life has a total fatality rate of 100%.)”

ISIS:
Say whatever you want about ISIS, but let me ask some questions:
Why didn't we hear about ISIS before launching the Syrian crisis?
Where was ISIS selling its oil products? and who was "buying" their benzene or diesel or whatsoever? and who suppose to monitor illegal international trade?
Where did ISIS ideology come from? don't say Iran or Hamas or Hezbollah or Israel. Is it the Saudi theocratic monarchy? Who knows.
Are they serious about the "coalition against ISIS"? I can't make that up, yet. Unless it is all about invasion of other country (i.e, Syria).
