[Media Source*] Unfortunately this blogger has had a long night tonight, so blogger delights will not be shown tonight. Although to keep on interested in what his happening around the world, here are some "post summaries" that caught this blog journalist attention around the blogosphere and the net.
- Porn sites getting their own internet domain: "The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers said late Wednesday it would move ahead with plans to set up a separate .xxx Internet domain for sexually explicit material."
- Abbas and Sharon to meet: "Sharon's office said the two would meet on June 21, a date which was agreed in talks between Erakat, Weisglass and Sharon's special adviser, Shalom Turjeman."
- Live whales worth $120m to New Zealand: "Miss Clark has told Japan's Foreign Minister Nobutaka Machimura that New Zealand is taking part in a 10-country campaign to persuade Japan not to push for an extension of its whaling programme. Australia, the United States and many European countries have also signed up."
- North Korea demands U.S. apology: "(CNN) -- North Korea has vowed not to return to the nuclear bargaining table unless it receives an apology from the United States for making hostile remarks about its leadership." Also check out an article about North Korean Candy
- Keeping The Lord's Name Sacred: "AMSTERDAM - The name of the Lord may no longer be taken in vain in the Dutch village of Staphorst. Staphorst, in the so-called Dutch "bible belt" of eastern towns where religion holds sway, approved a ban on swearing by 13-4 council votes."
- Engadget: "They said they were gonna do it and by gum, they’ve done it (not always a given in the tech world, ya know) — Skype now does video conferencing via the use of a third-party plug-in from Dialcom."
- World Mag Blog: "Pushing hard to become the first state legislature to sanction gay marriage without a court order, the California Assembly failed yesterday, coming up six votes short of the number required to pass AB19, a bill that would legalize homosexual marriage in the state."
- Iraq The Model: "As part of the lightning operations in Baghdad, the Iraqi security forces arrested 49 terror suspects in the districts of Hurriya, A'amil, Ghazaliya and Mada'in in and around Baghdad.

"
- Regime Change Iran: "Did you know that on the eve of the Iranian presidential election, that country--with 70 percent of its population under 30--has 75,000 bloggers? I find that pretty stunning--and I'm usually skeptical of blog-hype." Also has student protests with photos here and here.
- Israpundit: "Lemme get this one straight. The NORTH Atlantic Treaty Organization Parliamentary Assembly is granting Palestine observer status? So, NATO has become as irrelevant as the UN ? Strange but semi-true. From those champions of truth and justice at IPC comes this incredibly uplifting and poignant piece of news..."
- One Free Korea: "(quote) A defense expert warned Thursday that North Korea’s small army of computer hackers has capacity equal that of the U.S. CIA.
