World Leaders Condemn Boston Bomb Attack

World leaders are condemning the deadly bombings at the annual Boston Marathon in Massachusetts.

 UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called the twin explosions at the race's finish line “all the more appalling for taking place at an event renowned for bringing people together from around the world.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin denounced the “barbaric crime” and offered Russia’s assistance.
 Afghan President Hamid Karzai said his country feels “the pain and suffering arising from such incidents.”
The attack killed three people and wounded more than 100 others.

 No suspects are in custody, and there has been no claim of responsibility.
 U.S. investigators led by the FBI are examining video footage taken by spectators as part of the hunt for who carried out the double bombing.
 President Barack Obama did not describe the April 15 blasts as "terrorism," saying the investigation continues.
In a brief statement to reporters at the White House, Obama pledged to find the perpetrators and bring the "full weight of justice” against them.
“We’re still in the investigation stage at this point, but I just want to reiterate: We will find out who did this and we will hold them accountable," Obama said.
 Obama said he had ordered that the full resources of the federal government be made available to aid victims and assist in the investigation.
 The Federal Aviation Administration imposed a no-fly zone over the site of the explosions, while security was increased in New York City, Washington, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and other cities in response to the Boston bombs.
 Some reports said at least one unexploded suspected device had been found in Boston and was dismantled by experts.
 Some 23,000 runners from dozens of countries took part in the 42-kilometer race, which is considered the world’s oldest annual marathon.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
