    <p>Scully said he has decided to skip road games, at least early in the season. In addition to the Dodgers' home games, the 86-year-old Scully currently travels with the team to Anaheim, Arizona, San Diego and San Francisco.</p> <p>"I’m going to go to Anaheim for sure," Scully said Tuesday night. "But I’m going to try to cut back on nights on the road. I really want to spend more time at home."</p>
  • Maryland Gov. O’Malley’s Iowa visit sparks 2016 speculation, comparisons to Hillary Clinton

    DES MOINES — Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley was the only potential 2016 presidential contender to set foot in Iowa over the weekend, and yet the Democrat didn’t really have the stage to himself. Shortly after O’Malley (D) spoke at a dinner Friday night for retiring Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), Hillary Rodham Clinton’s image appeared on two large screens overhead. In a video, she teased that she needed advice from Harkin on a “momentous plunge” that she is about to take. “Tom, what’s the secret to being such a terrific grandparent?” Clinton asked, drawing uproarious laughter from the crowd. The good...

    An attorney who spoke at the 50th Colorado Farm Show in Greeley said the complex requirements of the Health Care Reform Act are here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future, so farmers who have fewer than 50 employees should prepare to comply by 2015. Kevin Paul, an attorney with Heizer Paul LLP in Denver, said even with more than 20 years of experience in the legal profession, he's finding the thousands of pages in the law to be difficult to interpret. "I spent a day this past weekend trying to figure out two sentences in one regulation and...

    The liberal Center for American Progress (CAP) this year promised corporate donors a chance to meet Hillary Rodham Clinton in return for a $250,000 donation, documents obtained by The Hill show. The meeting never happened, though Clinton spoke at the anniversary gala at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium that was cited on the solicitation. “None of the patrons were able to meet with Secretary Clinton but our board and trustees did meet with her at the event,” said Andrea Purse, a CAP spokeswoman. The documents ask prospective donors to contribute to CAP’s “Progressive Party,” which was held Oct. 24 to...

All of this information will be used to build detailed profiles of your personal habits and qualifications for certain services. Just as your credit report is used to determine your financial worth and capability, a computer will soon determine what you are or not allowed to do. It sounds like...

    Rick Perry has announced that he will not seek reelection in 2014. When he leaves office, Perry will have served as governor of Texas for 13 years (the longest such tenure ever, I believe) and, as John Fund notes, he has a fine record. Perry kept taxes low and business regulation reasonable, and it is no coincidence that approximately 30 percent of new private-sector job creation during the last decade occurred in Texas. Perry will also be remembered for his extremely weak run for the presidency. His lack of fluency and failure to remember his own talking points cost him...

    Ethiopia's new leader Hailemariam Desalegn, expected to assume power following the death of the longtime prime minister, readied for the post on Friday after holding talks with US President Barack Obama. But Hailemariam, 47, a relatively little-known politician overshadowed by his mentor Meles Zenawi, who died on Monday, faces tough challenges both internally and across the volatile Horn of Africa region. Obama, who telephoned Hailemariam late Thursday, urged him to "use his leadership to enhance the Ethiopian government's support for development, democracy, human rights and regional security," the White House said. Hailemariam has also met with South Sudan's foreign minister...

They were rather vague, but by happy coincidence the International Monetary Fund has chosen to flesh out the issue today. Unfortunately this is a rather long post with a few...

    WASHINGTON, April 20, 2010 – Iran may be capable of striking the United States with an intercontinental ballistic missile by 2015, according to a Defense Department report submitted to Congress yesterday. The unclassified analysis outlines near-term and longer-term threats posed by Iran, including Iran’s nuclear ambitions and its desire to extend its influence in the Middle East. “With sufficient foreign assistance,” the report states, “Iran could probably develop and test an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching the United States by 2015.” The report states that central to Iran’s “deterrent strategy” is its pursuit of a nuclear program that could...

    Social Security is now in greater danger than before. It was thought that we would not have to worry about losing the Social Security trust fund for at least a hundred years. When I was much younger, I was told that Social Security would last at least until 2040 under the current situation at that time. Then after 9/11 and the recession we had, I was told, 2025. Now, we are in a worse mess than ever. A war that has dragged on for almost a decade and that has not produced enough results, a broken down housing market, ten...

    Excerpt - BAGHDAD, Aug 27 (Reuters) - The United States asked Iraq for permission to keep its troops there to 2015, but U.S. and Iraqi negotiators agreed to limit their authorisation to 2011, Iraqi President Jalal Talabani said. "It was a U.S. proposal for the date which is 2015, and an Iraqi one which is 2010, then we agreed to make it 2011. Iraq has the right, if necessary, to extend the presence of these troops," Talabani said in a transcript of an interview with al-Hurra television. ~ snip ~

    A big protest is planned for Monday afternoon, ahead of the latest public hearing on the proposed statewide tollway. Lots of landowners are upset about the state’s plan to build a tollway from Mexico to northeast Texas. There have already been several town hall meetings about the Trans-Texas Corridor.

ECUSA’s General Convention — the highest decision-making authority for the denomination — had officially recognized ‘life-long committed relationships’ outside of marriage, and had voted to send teams of enforcers to the three ECUSA dioceses that still refused to ordain women. In response, dozens of Anglo-Catholic and Evangelical parishes defected, seeking oversight from...

"We have the blueprint. We will start the construction in six or seven years," Purnomo Yusgiantoro told AFP. The power plant, to be built in East Java, will have the capacity of 1,000 megawatts in the first phase, with the cost estimated at $US8 billion ($10.35 billion), he said. The capacity will later be increased to 4,000 megawatts. "We are open to any investors who are interested in developing this project,"...

    TOKYO - Japan plans to start building a manned base on the moon and a manned space shuttle within the next 20 years, a newspaper report said Monday. Japan's space agency, JAXA, is drawing up plans to develop a robot to conduct probes on the moon by 2015, then begin constructing a solar-powered manned research base on the planet and design a reusable manned space vessel like the U.S. space shuttle by 2025, the Mainichi Shimbun said. The space agency's budget could be boosted six-fold to $57 billion to assist those plans, the Mainichi said. The plans also include using...
