Change … Change is Awaited

Change … Change is Awaited
If we look at the world we can see people worried, they are worried for different reasons. Some of them lost their life time savings, some do not have healthcare, and some cannot afford food once a day.
We are worried; everyone else is worried for different reason. Some lost jobs, some of them lost home and some of them everything. There is no justice, waiting for justice years and it never arrives.
There are leaders who elections on Them of Change. Have they able to change anything in this world. It has gone from bad to worst. Are we better off than 4 years ago?
Everyone is looking for peace and satisfaction.
Change is Awaited
Can these leaders bring a change in this world? The corporate world is corrupt and corruption is at top. Can such leaders bring a change in the society, than they make this society a better place? These are few examples of corruption in the society. Corruption is at highest level.
What kind of society we are looking for ourselves and our offspring.
Everyone is thirsty, looking for change, let us make change happen.
Don’t support them in the society.
We have seen two scandals recently. CIA Chief has resigned, the same man who was head of US Military before, the second man to go Lockheed Martin head. These are few scandals across western world, which has destroyed social values and ethics.
They are representative of society there.
CIA director David Petraeus resigns over 'unacceptable' extramarital affair
Petraeus says he had shown 'extremely poor judgment' over affair, which came to light during an FBI investigation The head of the CIA David Petraeus resigned on Friday, saying that he had shown "extremely poor judgment" by having an extramarital affair. The affair was discovered during an FBI investigation into a potential breach of security, it emerged. No criminal proceedings were being considered.
It is an embarrassing downfall for one of America's most senior and respected generals, and one of the most high-profile members of the Obama administration.
Troublesome Liaisons of the Business World
Petraeus is hardly the first high-profile person to engage in such behavior. He’s in dubious company among a number of corporate leaders who have recently been caught in compromising circumstances.
The world of business has been the source of numerous powerful and highly placed individuals who put their marriages, careers and good standing at risk – all for an extramarital dalliance.
The same day Petraeus resigned — Lockheed Martin president and chief operating officer Chris Kubasik offered his resignation at the request of the company’s board of directors. This happened just two months before he was to assume a new role as CEO.

According to the company’s website, the married executive had been involved in “a close personal relationship with a subordinate employee,” actions which “violated the company’s Code of Ethics and Business Conduct.”
Mark Hurd
Mark Hurd is the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard. The New York Times characterized his tenure there as "one of the great rescue missions in American corporate history, refocusing the strife-ridden company and leading it to five years of revenue gains and a stock that soared 130 percent."
Still, Hurd was forced to resign in 2010. A sexual harassment probe found that he had violated company standards by filing inaccurate expense reports, as part of an effort to conceal a personal relationship with HP marketing consultant Jodie Fisher. The investigators found that the married CEO had not harassed her, but had paid her up to $10,000 per event to accompany him to business functions.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn
Strauss-Kahn was removed from an Air France flight at Kennedy Airport and arrested that same day, moments before the plane would have taken off and flown him back to France. Two days later, he was charged with multiple felony counts, and if he’s convicted of all of them, he could be sentenced to almost 75 years in prison. He resigned his post at the IMF on May 18, 2011, and he has since pleaded not guilty to all of the charges against him.
 “Dominique Strauss-Kahn is well-known as a seducer,” his official biographer, Michel Taubmann, said. “I can’t believe he would force himself on an unwilling woman. That doesn’t make sense.”
François Mitterrand famously ran three parallel families while president. He appointed a former girlfriend of his, Edith Cresson (a married woman) as prime minister in 1991. His predecessor, Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, used to borrow a Ferrari from his friend Roger Vadim, the film director and Brigitte Bardot’s first husband, when he went on the pull. (He once crashed it into a milk float early one morning on his way back to the Elysée.) Jacques Chirac and Nicolas Sarkozy were known for eyeing up comely reporters and female junior ministers.
DSK's extraordinary excuse: 'I didn't know I was sleeping with prostitutes at orgies because they were all naked at the time'
Shamed former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn never knew he was having sex with prostitutes at orgies - because 'all of the women were naked at the time', his lawyer claimed today.
The extraordinary excuse came as new mobile phone records showed the disgraced economist slept with 10 different hookers all charging more than £1,200 a time.
Tristane Banon, 31, claims that she was attacked by Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who is currently being held in New York over other allegations
In 2008, the married head of the IMF (he is on his third wife) was revealed to have had an affair with the Hungarian economist Piroska Nagy, who worked with him in the same organisation. He was cleared in an internal investigation of abuse of power, though required to apologise publicly for ‘a serious error of judgment’.
Woman minister ‘enjoyed 8 lovers’

FRANCE’S first woman justice minister had up to EIGHT lovers on the go, it was claimed yesterday.

Rachida Dati is in a legal battle to try to force tycoon Dominique Desseigne to say he fathered her daughter Zohra, three. Desseigne, 68, who is refusing to take a DNA test, insists he is one of many who had an “adventure” with Ms Dati, 47 — which will further the philandering reputation of French politicians. And his lawyers have claimed she was involved in up to eight relationships at the time.
It is claimed her boyfriends included a TV host, a Spanish PM, a Qatari politician and a brother of ex-French president Nicolas Sarkozy. Those previously suspected of being Zohra’s father include Mr Sarkozy himself. Ms Dati, who has a reputation as a self-publicist, is said to have encouraged the speculation during interviews.

Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni 'both having affairs'

Rumours that French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy are both having affairs are gaining momentum in France.  

The first 'tweet' claimed that Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy had become romantically involved with Benjamin Biolay, a musician and a winner at France's recent Victoires de la Musique awards.  It then claimed that the jilted Mr Sarkozy had swiftly found solace in the arms of his 40-year-old ecology minister Chantal Jouanno, also a French karate champion.

Celebrity President: Nicolas Sarkozy, Carla, Cécilia and Marie-Dominique

Nicolas Sarkozy was elected the sixth president of the Fifth Republic of France in May 2007. Their first celebrity leader, he is a departure from previous French Presidents in that he courts the press and is happy for them to gossip about his personal life - and his personal life got very public when Nicolas Sarkozy got together with the model Carla Bruni. He has now become a bone fide tabloid celebrity with the typical celebrity gossip circulating about him.

Love-triangle books a headache for France's Hollande

Stuck with dismal approval ratings for his presidential debut, France's Francois Hollande is now having his private life raked over in a series of books that dissect the alleged jealousy between his current and former companions.
Despite Hollande's insistence he wants his home life kept private, public interest has been rife since first lady Valerie Trierweiler sent a "killer tweet" in June that exposed the animosity between her and Segolene Royal, the president's partner up to mid-2007.
A book out this week describes how Hollande's flirtation with Trierweiler goes all the way back to the early 1990s and that in 2003 Royal warned the journalist, 11 years her junior, to stay away from her man, then head of the Socialist Party.

Bill Clinton Scandal: Affair with Monica Lewinsky
In the early days of the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal, the most damning evidence was presented by Linda Tripp. A close friend and confidante of Monica Lewinsky, Tripp recorded her conversations with the White House intern — conversations that revealed intimate details of what Lewinsky said was a sexual affair with the President. It was these tapes that, when handed over to special prosecutor Kenneth Starr in 1998, led to the expansion of the investigation into Clinton and Lewinsky's supposed relationship, paving the way for an eventual impeachment vote by the House of Representatives.

Mr Berlusconi - Scandals over his private life
Mr Berlusconi - caught in a series of scandals over his private life, including his alleged dealings with younger women and prostitutes - has frequently turned to a pithy phrase in an attempt to shrug off the allegations. At the end of the previous year, as allegations swirled about escorts and "Bunga, bunga" parties, the PM deadpanned the line: "I unfortunately have never in my life been to a wild party."
However, the talk of scandal has got under his collar at times.
He told Il Giornale newspaper in an interview on 12 August 2009 that he had nothing to apologise for and no skeletons in his cupboard: "I deserve to be left in peace: enough violations of privacy."
Questioned on the sex allegations in late July, Mr Berlusconi admitted: "I am not a saint, you've all understood that." In an earlier interview with gossip magazine Chi, Mr Berlusconi denied he pays for sex, adding: "I never understood where the satisfaction is when you're missing the pleasure of conquest."
More bluntly, in November 2010 Mr Berlusconi hit out with the following: "It's better to like beautiful girls than to be gay."

Silvio Berlusconi's scandals

A party animal

CETTO LA QUALUNQUE is an irredeemably corrupt, vulgar businessman from Calabria, Italy's mobster-ridden toe. He has just returned from a stretch on the run from the law to stand for mayor of his native, bullet-ridden Marina di Sopra (ominously twinned with Weimar). Unlike Martin Luther King, he says, “I have no dream…but I do like pilu [a dialect term for a bit of tail].” Mr La Qualunque, the central character in a new film, “Qualunquemente”, is an invention. But this week he suddenly looked awfully real.
On January 17th Milan prosecutors submitted to parliament a dossier of statements, reports and wiretap transcripts that depicted scenes as extravagantly sordid as anything in the much-trailed comedy. They included orgiastic parties staged at the home of Italy's prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, involving more than 20 half-naked women, and a room for what are known to participants as “Bunga Bunga” sessions, equipped for pole-dancing, with wardrobes full of skimpy nurses' and policewomen's uniforms.
John Edwards
North Carolina senator John Edwards had served only a portion of his one term in the US senate before running for president in 2004. He lost the nomination, but was selected as Democratic nominee John Kerry’s running mate.
After Edwards’ unsuccessful 2008 bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, a story broke in The National Enquirer that he was having an extramarital affair. It turned out to be spot-on. Not only had Edwards had an affair with filmmaker Rielle Hunter, but he had fathered a child with her as well. Edwards has since reduced his profile considerably, and it is not known if he plans to return to the national stage.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
“The Governator” served for over seven years, and left office in January 2011. Then, on May 9, 2011, he and wife Maria Shriver announced that they were separating after 25 years of marriage. The Los Angeles Times revealed that the actor and politician had fathered a child out of wedlock ten years earlier with one of their family’s household staff, and while it’s too early to tell what kind of an effect this revelation will have on Schwarzenegger’s future, he asked that his family be respected and left alone. "While I deserve your attention and criticism,” he said in a statement, “my family does not. "
