Quotes

According to Der Spiegel, the NSA placed "Turkey at the level of Venezuela, and even ahead of Cuba, in terms of US interest in intelligence collection."
"What we need is partnership that is genuine and long term. We want something that is step by step to build the capacity of the country to allow us to eventually stand on our own two feet. This will also ensure long term sustainability of the project, said Fa'anunu. "
"In 2013, a 65 year old woman named Diana Nyad was the first person to swim the 110 miles from Havana, Cuba to Key West, Florida non-stop without the use of a shark cage. Nyad had failed three times before she finally made it. This time she came out of the water saying, 'You are never too old to chase your dreams.' Hearing this, I felt this woman was a kindred spirit."
