There is a garden in the back but it is owned by other buildings. The elevator is sturdy and functional, but only fits four persons. The hallways are cleaned once a week. The building occupants are mainly families with some small children. The front door on the street is always locked. The post boxes are in the front hallway, near the elevator. The garbage containers are in the back of the building and emptied by the local services.

The doors and wooden trim are all in light brown colors. The paint is in very good condition.

Area description: The flat is close to two of Prague's most popular parks: Letna and Stromovka.The flat is close to shops, schools, international kindergarten and nursery.
The road in front of the flat is busy during rush hour, but this road will be by-passed due to the addition of a tunnel. However, since the flat is facing the back yard, the flat is completely quiet even during high traffic.

Why does the MSM lie by omission on the Flotilla?

They were fully equipped for battle. A search of the ship found weaponry — knives, axes, metal poles — as well as protective gear, bulletproof vests, masks, and night vision goggles. When they were apprehended, none of them carried any form of identification, and most of them had thousands of dollars in their pockets.
The story of the battle on board the boat became clearer as the soldiers were debriefed by the IDF and spoke to the media from their hospital beds — without being identified by name — in Israel Today.
According to plan, the soldiers had lowered themselves down by two ropes from a helicopter. The first two soldiers were immediately attacked and their pistols stolen before they could fire. The pistols were later recovered in the hands of two of the dead casualties of the fight, with their magazines empty.”
Does this not annoy you? Then you will enjoy the fiction of the MSM.

UPC Technician Attack

I am incensed by the lack of service at my internet provider. UPC Czech Republic has caused me a list of problems lately, culminating in a physical attack by a service technician.

Yes, the technician touched me, shoved me out of the way, and fled the apartment. Ran because he did not want me to take back my authorization paper for shoddy work.

I filed a complaint to the Police Station in my neighborhood. Not for an arrest but for the declaration. You see, UPC seems only to treat requests in a patronizing and slow manner. Even after telling them about the police report, they did not even change their stance.

I am not satisfied with this behavior and demand that they repair the problems and issue an apology for the physical attack and the lack of fair response.

After all this, I can say that it would be wise to avoid the services of UPC in the Czech Republic. Speaking to a Dutch colleage just now, and he says the same of the Netherlands service by UPC.

This blog post is hopefully going to be found by numerous people. The additional post here describes the situation of the attack.

I have attempted to contact executives in the UPC Czech office by email, phone and fax. (the service desk has called but they do not offer anything close to the correction of services, and the apology for the technician that accosted me).

The UPC Nederland office is my next target to contact. Its amazing how easy it is to contact people there once you look on LinkedIn. UPC is owned by Liberty Global ( and I have faxed to the head office the link to the report, the account of what happened, and reviews of the service (90% negative) from a local expat site.

I am definitely angry and will not give up.

The report from the police is to be attached soon, after my lawyer clears the information.
