    Quotes from early reviews of "The DaVinci Code" at Cannes:"CANNES, France - "The Da Vinci Code" drew lukewarm praise, shrugs of indifference, some jeering laughter and a few derisive jabs Tuesday from arguably the world's toughest movie crowd: critics at the Cannes Film Festival.""One especially melodramatic line uttered by Hanks drew prolonged laughter and some catcalls, and the audience continued to titter for much of the film's remainder. Some people walked out during the movie's closing minutes, though there were fewer departures than many Cannes movies provoke among harsh critics. When the credits rolled, there were a few whistles and...

    ROCHDALE, England, May 2 — "I snapped it out myself," said William Kelly, 43, describing his most recent dental procedure, the autoextraction of one of his upper teeth. Now it is a jagged black stump, and the pain gnawing at Mr. Kelly's mouth has transferred itself to a different tooth, mottled and rickety, on the other side of his mouth. "I'm in the middle of pulling that one out, too," he said. It is easy to be mean about British teeth. Mike Myers's mouth is a joke in itself in the "Austin Powers" movies. In a "Simpsons" episode, dentalphobic children...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Groovy is over, hip is square, far out is long gone. Don't worry, though - it's cool. "Cool" remains the gold standard of slang in the 21st century, as reliable as a blue-chip stock, surviving like few expressions ever in our constantly evolving language. It has kept its cool through the centuries - even as its meaning changed drastically. How cool is that? Way cool, say experts who interpret slang for their messages about society. "Cool is certainly a charter member for the slang hall of fame," says Robert Thompson, a Syracuse University professor of popular...

The Indianapolis Star reports that the fee is meant to reduce the number of traffic-snarling crashes on Indiana's most congested highways and roads. The fine would require General Assembly approval. It is listed as a "recommended funding option" in Republican Governor Mitch Daniels' Major Moves road plan.

    Disasters: Searching for Lessons From a Bad Year John Bohannon No doubt about it, the 12 months since the last Breakthrough of the Year issue have been an annus horribilis. Three major natural disasters--the 2004 "Christmas tsunami" in the Indian Ocean, Hurricane Katrina on the U.S. Gulf Coast, and the Pakistan earthquake--left nearly 300,000 dead and millions homeless. In Pakistan, the disaster is still unfolding as winter engulfs the devastated communities. Insurance companies classify such events as "acts of God": misfortunes for which no one is at fault. But in their aftermath, many scientists are pointing out that natural disasters...

Despite the end of the June 1-to-Nov. 30 season, hurricanes could still form over the next few months. In fact, a tropical storm took shape in the Atlantic on Tuesday. But no hurricane has been known to hit the United States between December...

    President Bush's push to give the military a bigger role in responding to major disasters like Hurricane Katrina could lead to a loosening of legal limits on the use of federal troops on U.S. soil. Pentagon officials are reviewing that possibility, and some in Congress agree it needs to be considered. Bush did not define the wider role he envisions for the military. But in his speech to the nation from New Orleans on Thursday, he alluded to the unmatched ability of federal troops to provide supplies, equipment, communications, transportation and other assets the military lumps under the label of...

    Michael Savage is angry that Department of Defence lawyers knew the whereabouts of four 9/11 terrorists in 1999, but kept intelligence departments from sharing the information. He says that these lawyers are responsible for 9/11 and should go to jail; as though they knew what the terrorists were planning. The information he found in the New York Post is nothing new. Its just more of the same story: we knew who the terrorists were, where they were, and could have gotten them. Just like the many opportunities Bill Clinton had to capture or kill Osama Bin Laden before 9/11, but...

    Legislators and the governor celebrated the passage of the 2005-06 state budget that some call a victory for taxpayers - no new taxes, no new borrowing, and the largest single annual increase for the education budget. It is also argued by some that this budget is moving the state's finances towards structural balance. Such wishful thinking! This budget not only ignores the structural deficit, but it unfortunately paves the way for future tax increases that will become necessary to finance future spending. Let's begin with the budget's proposed spending plan. As shown in the accompanying chart the enacted budget contains...

    CHICAGO - Here's some medical news you can trust: A new study confirms that what doctors once said was good for you often turns out to be bad — or at least not as great as initially thought. The report is a review of major studies published in three influential medical journals between 1990 and 2003, including 45 highly publicized studies that initially claimed a drug or other treatment worked. Subsequent research contradicted results of seven studies — 16 percent — and reported weaker results for seven others, an additional 16 percent. That means nearly one-third of the original results...

They claim that they will have the ballots in the polling places corrected before the election, but there are 2200absentee ballots out there that are wrong and people may inadvertently vote the wrong way, and since those ballots have already been sent, there is no time to correct them. This election is expected to be very close, so these 2200 ballots may very well make a difference! This is liable to end up in...

    At a press conference earlier this month, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O'Connell once again called for higher taxes on parents as the putative remedy for California's lagging student performance. In so doing, he attempts to perpetuate the myth that more education dollars will mean a better education product for California taxpayers. The bad news for Mr. O'Connell is that taxpayers and voters are wising up. The education establishment has, in the past, repeatedly asked for more money with promises of better performance and they have been consistent only in disappointing us.

Security Council had planned controls over Baghdad for years to come, U.N. officials say. The council, led by the United States, had decreed that inspections and disarmament of Iraq were to be followed by tough, open-ended monitoring. "It's been a little disturbing," said Demetrius Perricos, chief U.N. weapons inspector. "All the arguments say that when sanctions ended, Saddam Hussein would have had a free hand. By the council's own resolutions that wasn't so." In...

Yes, and his name was Frank Fontaine. by Larry Miller 08/17/2004 12:00:00 AM IN THE WEEKS, months, indeed years of exhausting campaigning, speechifying, and punditizing leading up to a presidential election--exhausting, that is, from the voters' point of view--and in a particular contest in our nation's history when the rhetoric has been especially, er, tart--I was wondering the other day whether we Americans have ever agreed on anything, large or small, and my answer was: No; I don't think so. And things were no less divided in the past;...
  • NBC Olympic Coverage Insults USA

    NBC TVs coverage of the Olympic opening ceremonies was sprinkled with a variety of political comments, most of which were not-so-subtle allusions to left wing complaints about Bush. As the Saudi team entered Bob Costas said: Costas: Since the wakeup call of 9/11, Americans have become more aware of aspects of Saudi society beyond the oil and their nominal status as a U.S. ally. Even worse, when the US team entered, the crowd went wild, and Costas and Couric were quick to explain that Greeks like the American people even if they may not like our foreign policy. I'd love...

    Scientists find genetic link to bad behaviour By David Derbyshire, Science Correspondent (Filed: 20/07/2004) The throw of the genetic dice helps to determine whether you see the world with pent up anger or placidly turn the other cheek, a study suggests. Researchers have found evidence that some people inherit a genetic make-up that makes them more prone to aggression and violence. However, the "bad behaviour gene" is activated only if people were neglected or abused as children, scientists say. The findings add to the growing evidence that the "nature versus nuture" debate is far too simplistic. Behaviour is actually influenced...

    Vice President Cheney Swears; It's The Mother of All Bad Words Kerry L Marsala Oh, fudge! Cheney stands accused of utilizing one of the many terms the FCC has listed as 'fineable' words. According to the 'sources', Senator Patrick Leahy approached Cheney after they had come to the chamber for the annual photo; they exchanged heated dialogue over the Democrats attacks on Vice President Cheneys ethics. The frank exchange reportedly ended with Cheney saying, "Go (expletive) yourself." If the report is true, what does the use of the aforementioned expletive by Vice President Cheney really say about his character? Let's...

    In 1992, presidential candidate Bill Clinton flew home from New Hampshire to affirm the execution of a cop killer, Rickey Ray Rector. Rector was brain-damaged; when he took his last walk, he left a slice of pecan pie in his cell, intending to eat it when he returned. Many have wondered whether the Arkansas governor was influenced by politics. His campaign was struggling with reports that he had had an affair with a blond entertainer, Gennifer Flowers, and the execution embellished his tough-on-crime reputation. But Rickey Ray Rector is not mentioned in Bill Clinton's autobiography, "My Life." Instead, we read...
