North Korean-flagged tanker loads oil at seized Libyan port: officialsSat, 08 Mar 2014 16:55 | Reuters
A North Korean-flagged tanker has started loading oil at a Libyan port seized by rebels in the east of the country, port and oil officials said on Saturday. The Libyan government threatened earlier on Saturday to bomb the vessel if it tried to ship the cargo out of Es Sider port. The rebels want to sell the oil to bypass the government and get a greater share of the country's oil wealth. "The loading has started," a port worker told Reuters.
Libya threatens to bomb North Korean tanker if it ships oil from rebel portSat, 08 Mar 2014 16:54 | Reuters
By Ulf Laessing and Feras Bosalum TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Libya threatened on Saturday to bomb a North Korean-flagged tanker if it tried to ship oil from a rebel-controlled port, in a major escalation of a standoff over the country's petroleum wealth. The oil dispute is just one facet of the deepening turmoil in the North African OPEC member, where the government is struggling to control militias who helped topple Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 but kept their weapons and now challenge state authority. A local television station controlled by protesters showed footage of pro-autonomy rebels holding a lengthy ceremony and slaughtering a camel to celebrate their first oil shipment. The station said the ceremony took place in Es Sider.
California election season starts with Democrats conventionSat, 08 Mar 2014 16:53 | Reuters
By Sharon Bernstein LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - California Democrats on Saturday vowed to restore their two-thirds majority in the legislature and push their statewide success eastward in an effort to retake a majority in Congress. The pledge at the state's annual Democratic convention came a week after Democrats effectively lost their prized two-thirds majority in the legislature as two state senators were forced to go on leave under criminal indictments or convictions. The convention, which effectively kicks off election season, showcased Democratic stars such as California Governor Jerry Brown and the state's Attorney General Kamala Harris as well as featured former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whom party leaders are hoping may be able to return to her old job. Brown, who is running for an unprecedented fourth term in November, said California had been written off for dead and called a failed state, but now it is recovering faster than the rest of the nation.

What's special today for you
Is your birthday on an 8th?
You have pleasant and friendly personality. People look at you to your wit
and imagination. You are unpredictable and hardly complete what you
started, which sometimes create negative impact to people around you.
Falling in love becomes your routine. Most of the time you are lucky.
You fascinate people with good taste but you never have enough with one.
Although your love progresses very fast, it never lasts.
George Bernadshaw, Sir Humphry Davy, Christian Bernard, Elizabeth
Taylor were born under the number 8.
Distance is good. Perspective is important, and emotions could tell a different story. This is why you`re relying so heavily on electronic communications. Through fax and email, it`s harder to be swayed by someone`s facial expression or tone of voice. Firm, rational decisions set your immediate future on the right track. At the same time, though, you`re not above pursuing a few sensory experiences of your own. You like hot beverages and spicy foods. The right sweater or socks have you purring like a happy cat. You`ll ask someone to join you once you`re clear that this won`t be mixing business with pleasure.
Where does the time go? You try to keep track, but the hours pass like minutes. This could be a problem if you don`t have anything to show for all your efforts. It`s a very different kind of problem when you`re enjoying yourself. You might find yourself making elaborate commitments to match the intensity of your feelings. You can talk about legal issues as long as you don`t sign anything. Above all, be polite in a volatile situation. You can still be a model guest when your host is lacking in hospitality. Make your mark by setting a fine example.
Kindred spirits meet again or for the first time. If you`ve known each other for ages, surely there`s some anniversary to celebrate. If this is that first moment of intense magic, you fall out of your usual comfort zone of words and ideas, and deep into the realm of instinct. It`s obvious that you`re making things happen, yet these events seem to flutter around you like a flock of bright birds. You`re a genius who attracts geniuses, and a miracle that causes other miracles. Whatever you say or hear, all these people are speaking your language.
Youthful energy runs strong and loud. If there are actual children on the scene, whether your own or someone else`s, you might even be running in circles. If you`re in the mood for fun or can handle a fragmented train of thought, this could be a welcome change of pace. If you`re looking for mental space, though, you may have to go elsewhere. And don`t be surprised if confusion follows you. The Universe wants you to pay attention to something that you`d normally tune out. Maybe looking through a kid`s eye perspective is the way to start.
You love life. Who doesn`t? Right now you`re in a position to prove your devotion to the spiritus mundi in some unique, dramatic way. Maybe this means going to your place of power and talking to the divinity in whatever form it takes for you. Maybe it means sharing a positive experience with friends of all sorts. Even if you didn`t intend to involve others in your celebration, something in your words or actions, or possibly in the energy you radiate, will attract people who crave your company. Welcome them in. With all that you have, there`s plenty to go around.
Now you know why it`s good to scrap old plans instead of leaving them around. Something that you once intended or used to believe might come back to haunt you at an inconvenient moment. Any system is only as good as its participants. If someone opts out, there`s not much you can do. Don`t worry, though. There are other ways to save the day. You might come up with a sexy new explanation for a dry old principle. The flame of invention gets stronger and brighter each time you`re pushed away from where you want to be. You can always go somewhere better.
You fit in. This is hardly a surprise. You usually mesh so well with events that there`s never any question about your place in the world. Take your partner aside and share with him or her why you`re suddenly smiling. Not only is everything going as planned, but a newer, better plan is hereby in effect. It`s hard to keep a secret like this, especially when you`re among friends. Social gatherings are sure to be powerful, uplifting experiences. Any community that you build at this time will be with you in some form for years to come.
New things make you a little nervous, but you`ll probably go ahead anyway. Your comfort and safety issues are more about others than about you. You don`t want them to worry. Let them pack you extra sandwiches and double check your safety line if it makes them feel better. Even as you lunge forward, an unexpected event bursts your bubble. Maybe it won`t affect your commitment, but it will certainly change the mood. You`re looking at strangers in a different way and are less eager to share. Common wisdom makes more sense than ever. You still have an out if you need one.
You have an appetite for the unusual. If it`s not as strong now as it is at other times, you`ll soon get used to the idea that nothing is quite the same and things aren`t exactly where you left them. Foreign events and ideas crowd themselves into your local day. Someone close to you is acting out in strange ways. You never know who`s going to be affected by these goings on. Tune your ears to a different frequency. Listen for the strains of truth that might be concealed in a chatter of voices. Focus on the person who`s speaking.
You like cool people, but you`re not as happy when they turn cold. Is that breeze coming from outside, or has there been a sudden weather change in this room? Forget about a so-called hot prospect, because it`s not going to happen. The best way to minimize your humiliation is to keep quiet about the failure. Enough people are familiar with your situation. If you`re lucky, the subject won`t come up again. Meanwhile, you have another agenda. If you can`t leap over the barriers, consider sidling around them. You may not be successful this time, either, but you deserve credit for trying.
Electricians know what a good jolt feels like. For those who don`t usually work with live wires, though, it`s a new sensation (and actually pleasant). The Stars are obviously using you as a channel for some cosmic force that you barely understand. Air Signs like you have no interest in being grounded. If you`re usually quiet, now you`re a nonstop talker. Repeating yourself for emphasis is more amusing than annoying. People who fall in love won`t be around long for others to observe their condition. Only through your disappearance will others start doing the math.
You`re experiencing what`s known as mission creep. The pressure of events shifts your goal and all the earlier calculations no longer add up. The details that you just finished nailing down are hanging oddly in space. Backtracking and reverse engineering feel like a waste of time, but your other reasonable options are few. Take yourself away from all this, even if it`s just for a short time. Talk or visit with a member of your family as a means of anchoring yourself. Someone who has known you for a long time will be happy to help you figure out what`s what.
