If you discover that another academic has written a thesis on a topic similar to your own, don't stress out. Carefully read the material to gain an understanding of what it is that the prior thesis has accomplished and consider ways your thesis might further develop the topic or might approach the topic from a totally different perspective. You are likely to find that the former thesis is not the same as the one you are considering after all. To be sure, show the competing thesis to your advisor; he or she can give you indispensable advice. If you discover that another graduate student is writing a thesis on the same topic you've chosen, you could also consider contacting that author to get an even better idea of whether your ideas overlap. (Be careful not to give away too much of your own thinking on the topic as you conduct this discussion.)
Thanks Anya, appreciate the feedback. The only Explorer I’m aware of is part of their Supernova service and it’s one of their portfolios there and not really a true portfolio anyway – more of a collection of stocks they end up recommending as the result of different themes they “explore”. If you are a beginner, I would stick with Stock Advisor for the time being. There’s a lot to learn, a lot to read and it will give you a good sense of how MF operates. MF will constantly try to up sell you but don’t go for it until you are more established as an investor (and more familiar with MF). Good luck!
The Senate supported a resolution saying, "the violence in Benghazi coincided with an attack on the United States Embassy in Cairo, Egypt, which was also swarmed by an angry mob of protesters on September 11, 2012", and making no mention of Al Qaeda.  During a house hearing on May 8, 2013, an email, which was never classified, that was sent on September 12, 2012, to Susan Rice as well as many other members of the State Department, was read aloud by Representative Trey Gowdy (R). The email stated clearly that the attacks were committed by Islamists, with no mention of an "angry mob" or protestors.  Gowdy said the Obama administration was "changing names" and "creating aliases" of Benghazi survivors and "dispersing them around the country" to keep them out of sight.  According to The New York Times , both protesters angered by an anti-Muslim video and Islamic militants were involved, but no links to Al Qaeda or other officially known terrorist groups were found. It said, "Anger at the video motivated the initial attack."  Khattala, an alleged terrorist who was captured for his role in directing attackers, said “From a religious point of view, it is hard to say whether it is good or bad."  On December 13, 2012, in a letter to President Barack Obama, Rice asked him to remove her name from consideration for Secretary of State.
