Credit: Los Alamos National Laboratory SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA—Even when they're underground, nuclear tests can be detected in the skies—and as a result, global satellite networks could become a powerful new tool in the arsenal of weapons to help detect clandestine underground nuclear explosions, a team of scientists reported here today at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union.

    For decades table salt has been on a healthy hearts most wanted list. Believing its responsible for skyrocketing blood pressure, Americans have banned salt from tables and stripped it from recipes. But new research says salt just might deserve a bit of a reprieve. The link between salt and blood pressure is thought to date back to the 1940s when Duke University researcher Walter Kempner, M.D., became famous for using salt restriction as a means to treat people with high blood pressure. During the next few decades, studies confirmed Kempners theory that reducing salt could help reduce hypertension. A Controversy...

A compassionless judge named William Cohen has forced Miller to leave the country to avoid having to turn her daughter Isabella over to a woman who is unrelated to Isabella. While Lisa Miller was being treated at a state hospital for a suicide attempt, hospital personnel, of unknown sexual orientation, suggested to Lisa that she...

And it's a good start. But we're not going to get out of this deficit problem unless we raise taxes across the board, to go back to what Bill Clinton had and his taxes. And if we don't do that, the problem is the pressure is going to be on spending even more.

    Iran's Revolutionary Guards has told the United States to "recount" the drones in its fleet as it insists that despite US denials it captured a small US unmanned spy plane over Gulf waters. "Its capture is not an issue the Americans can easily refute," Guards spokesman Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif was quoted as saying. "I advise the American commanders to recount their drones accurately," he said. The Guards on Tuesday claimed to have recently captured a ScanEagle drone, a low-cost, short-range unmanned aircraft made by Boeing that measures 1.4 metres (4.5 feet) long and with a wingspan of...

    Some conservatives are saying that Republicans should let Obama own the economy. Essentially give him what he wants with regard to tax hike, spending, etc. so that Republicans could not be labelled obstructionist. This is garbage! This strategy will mean that Obama will be able to put more in his Santa sack to give to his constituents. More will become dependents and more will love Obama. The Republicans should not "give" Obama anything. They need to fight for lower tax rates and reduced spending. If it means we go over the cliff so be it. The House must be ruled...

More telling than the NFL's PR hocus-pocus of health and safety ads are the numbers on weight, the injuries and the PED suspensions, writes Howard Bryant. Goodell and McKay discussed an idea brought up by Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano in which a team, instead of kicking off, would get the ball at its own 30-yard line in a fourth-and-15 situation. The team then would punt the ball away or, to replace an onside kick, could...

The Mongoloid component of the Tocharians are not from Han Chinese or pre Han Chinese, but most likely from Altaic types of Mongoloids such as Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and Mongolians. This obviously indicates that the Tocharians were already mixed for quite a few generations, since they looked mostly Caucasian. Very interesting....

At issue is a backroom deal hatched by GM to fulfill the Obama administrations demand for a quick bankruptcy, draining the automaker of nearly all of its cash on hand and leaving it in worse shape than it was when it collapsed in 2009. One condition of GMs bailout was to shore up its overseas subsidiaries. On the eve of entering bankruptcy, the company cut a $367...
