Barak – “Listen up, I can’t take sides on this issue as we have huge investments in Latin America”

Barak – May I suggest you get a couple of our oil big boys such as Anadarko involved and maybe you can drag us into a potential conflict as we would have to protect our own citizens”

Cameron – “What a fantastic Idea – You know I get good backhanders from Rockhopper, Desire Petroleum and Falklands Oil & Gas so adding another expert fraudster could really make it work”

Barak – “Please be careful with this David. You know these companies are virtual companies and the fact that there is no oil and gas of commercial value down there and if this gets out my investments in Latin America could be in jeopardy so lets both get involved but do it under the radar”

` Cosmonautics Day Marked with a Cherry Tree Grown from a Pit that was in Space Bursting into Bloom 6 Years Early ‘

#AceHistory2Research – TOKYO – April 12 – A cherry tree grown from a pit that was in space burst into bloom in Japan six years earlier, Japanese media reported on Saturday.

The “space” tree surprising Japanese botanists grows near the Buddhist temple Ganjoji in the Gifu prefecture.

In 2008, seeds of one of old Sakuras growing near the temple were handed over to the Japanese Aerospace Research Agency, and astronaut Koichi Wakata, currently the commander on board the International Space Station, took the seeds with him to space. After ten months in space, the seeds were returned to Japan and planted into the ground in 2010.

Over the four years, the tree, called by Japanese reporters “space”, has grown impressive four metres high and burst into bloom this spring for the first time. Such early blooming is rare. Usually sakuras bloom at the age of about ten years.

Scientists could not explain why it happened, a botany professor at Tsukuba University said. Probably, the growth was fast after the influence of space radiation, he supposed.

Meanwhile, people in the temple see a sign in the early blooming. “It was symbolic. The tree was grown from a seed of a Sakura aged more than 1,200 years and would be its successor in our garden,” the temple rector said.

In 2011, marking the 50th anniversary since Yuri Gagarin’s legendary space flight, the United Nations General Assembly, on the initiative of the Russian Federation, declared April 12 as International Day of Human Space Flight.

Russia marks the memorable date as a national holiday for more than 50 years. In 1962, a few days before the first anniversary since Gagarin’s space flight, the Soviet Union Supreme Council declared Cosmonautics Day.

Most Japanese schools and public buildings have cherry blossom trees outside of them. Since the fiscal and school year both begin in April, in many parts of Honshū, the first day of work or school coincides with the cherry blossom season.

The Japan Cherry Blossom Association developed a list of Japan’s Top 100 Cherry Blossom Spots with at least one location in every prefecture.
