    NEW YORK - When the nation's foremost dog show added an event open to mixed breeds, owners cheered that everydogs were finally having their day. They see the Westminster Kennel Club's new agility competition, which will allow mutts at the elite event next month for the first time since the 1800s, as a singular chance to showcase what unpedigreed dogs can do. "It's great that people see that, `Wow, this is a really talented mixed breed that didn't come from a fancy breeder,"' said Stacey Campbell, a San Francisco dog trainer heading to Westminster with Roo!, a high-energy -- see...

    Aka father carrying his daughter while out on a hunt [Courtesy of Barry Hewlett] Barry and Bonnie Hewlett had been studying the Aka and Ngandu people of central Africa for many years before they began to specifically study the groups' sexuality.

    The day after his inauguration, President Obama promised a new era of “openness in government.” But the reality has not matched the president’s rhetoric. We, presidents of two of the nation’s largest journalism organizations, and many of our thousands of members, have found little openness since Obama took office. If anything, the administration has gone in the opposite direction: imposing restrictions on reporters’ newsgathering that exceed even the constraints put in place by President George W. Bush. Democrats criticized the Bush administration for not making decisions based on the best science. But the Obama administration now muzzles scientists and experts...

    Barbara A. McKinzie, Alpha Kappa Alpha's international president, expressed indignation and outrage over the Tennessee Republican Party running a smear campaign against Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. McKinzie denounced the transparent mindset that triggered the decision by the Tennessee GOP to design such an ad. She said it is the basis of an ugly underpinning that is being echoed in established racist Internet chat rooms, within the right-leaning blogosphere and among some conservative pundits. To make Michelle Obama a target of a potentially hate-inspired offensive is something that she -- and the 200,000 primarily African-American female...

Richard Evershed, a chemist at the University of Bristol, analyzed the cream’s ingredients and recreated the ancient recipe, which consisted mainly of rendered animal fat and starch that was probably obtained from boiling grains. “It shows a surprising degree of technological sophistication,” he says, noting that the color came from...

    The diabolical plan of the Kyoto Treaty is to banned cars, destroy Industry and lower your lifestyle. They are using the environmental movement to try and complete this diabolical plan. This is really just a plan to bring back Communism under a new name. So the people who want Communism are using the Kyoto Treaty to take Americas wealth and redistribute under the name of "Environmentalism". Have you heard of "global warming"? This is the first issue environmentalist are trying to use to rob America. There is no scientific evidence to back claims of man-made global warming. Period...End of story...Or...
