Internet giant Google is investing an extra 300 million euros at its data centre in the Walloon town of Dour near Mons. In time this will result in the creation of 200 long-trem jobs.

Google made the announcement during a visit of the Belgian Prime Minister, Elio Di Rupo (Francophone socialist). Google’s data centre in Dour is one of the three largest operated by the company in the continent of Europe.

The 300 million will finance a major three-year expansion programme. Google hardware operations manager Freddy Bonhomme told the Belgian press agency Belga: “Work has just started. Between 300 and 350 people are being hired.”

Employment levels may fall after the project is completed.

Syrian news agency Sana is back



The Syrian News Agency Sana is back on the search engines of Google.

But the Google search engines give now two different results for 'latest news Sana'.

The first research counts about 32,800,000 results.

The second (false) research counts about 12,300 results.


A lot of links on Google to Sana are dead or are made inaccessible.

Syrian SANA News Agency website is under fierce attack 07-14 ...



http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/sana.sy.html: 'Sana.sy is DOWN for everyone. It is not just you. The server is not responding...'

Comment: 'I don't think that Sana's website is unreachable because of the server is 'probably overloaded'.  I believe the server has been blocked by the Pentagon that is publishing now all kind of stories about the 'victorious offensive of the Free Libyan Army', that is justly recognized by the French and British government.  It is part of the American war propaganda.
As we know, Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian armed groups and terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. Weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Thanks for the nice statistics.'
