Woman falls from 28th floor, strikes pedestrian
Kunming police are investigating the death of a woman who fell 28 stories and struck an unlucky pedestrian who is in the hospital with head injuries.

Sunday at 11:08 am, witnesses said they heard a crash and then saw a body fall to a stairwell outside of building D3 of the Meijing Xincheng residential complex in the Yueyatang neighborhood. The woman who fell was killed instantly, witnesses told Kunming newspaper Dushi Shibao.

A woman surnamed Zhao, who was walking with her mother-in-law and son, happened to be walking below building D3 at the time that the woman fell from the 28th floor. A doctor at 533 Hospital said the woman was in stable condition but that she had suffered some head trauma and was unable to remember being struck by the falling woman.

Due to the fact that the fallen woman apparently crashed through a window before falling to her death, it is unclear whether her fall was suicide, accidental or if foul play was involved. Police have not released any information about the woman's identity or any other details related to the case.

President Back Track, Barack, Barry Soetoro, Obama is a very smooth telepromter reader and can read all kinds of good promises written by his speech writers!
By the way he has not yet ever performed one promise he has ever made! Quite the contrary professional news hounds are realizing that in actuality, whatever Obama says he is going to do it becomes just the opposite! Why in God's name this puppet to the Globalist Bankers would win a 'Nobel Peace Prize" is beyond comprehension and subtracts from any credibility this award might have ever carried!
Pres. Barack Obama promised to take troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, in reality he is increasing the amount of forces he will place in Afghanistan by 40,000 more military personnell, plus adding military contractors as well as, having started a new war on another front in Pakistan - at the same time advocating a war against Iran and threatening to allow Israel to Nuke Iran! This Marxist man is in the midst of a great effort to take away constitutional rights from American citizens re: First Ammendment Right: Freedom of speech and Second Ammendment Right: The right to bare arms in the act of self defence!
Barack has created on laws in his cap and trade environment bill to take away land,
property and the right to grow food on farms and gardens etc. from the American citizens - amongst other communistic manouvers!
The man is a Marxist Dictator who sets in motion conditions to set up policies and laws that Global Bilderbergers of the, "Bilderberg Group", require to set up their "New World Order", and place American citizens under their rule as slaves!
Barack has committed many High Treasonous Acts against "The Constitution of The United States of America", and this is the man that a board making a decision on who should be the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize would pick?

This leaves much room for the question to be asked, "What kind of incompitent politically biased "Nimcompoops" would choose president Obama?

Chinese Literature Prize

Gao Xingjian / 高行健 received the nobel prize of literature in 2000. The press release for the prize refers notably to "soul Mountain". Gao Xingkian was a recognized artist in Beijing in the 80's. However his work has been banned in China for many years and he is a French citizen since 1997 or 99 (depending on which bio you read). While in China he translated several major author in Chinese and while in France he has written several plays in French.
