    SEATTLE — White Sox right-hander Philip Humber made sure to relish every moment commemorating Saturday's perfect game with his teammates. That included spending Saturday night at a sports bar with about a dozen teammates to watch a UFC fight (even though Humber isn't a fight fan) to taping a "Top 10" segment for Monday's showing of "The Late Show with David Letterman.". "You only get one chance to re-live it," Humber said Sunday morning. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and former Sox ace Mark Buehrle were among more than 100 people who sent congratulatory messages to Humber. As of late Sunday...

    Court records refer to him simply, as Victim One. Outside of a four-and-a-half page section about him in the grand jury indictment of ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, little else has been discussed about him publicly. Last week, his mother (whom I will refer to as "Mother One") removed him from Central Mountain High School in Mill Hall, Pa., where he was a senior and an all-star athlete. In an interview conducted last week, she explained why she pulled him from the school. "They were not helpful," Mother One said of the school's administrators. "They wanted me to...

    Following the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's successful hounding last season of the Japanese whaling fleet, there was an air of optimism that the country would finally abandon its controversial "scientific research." "[Sea Shepherd captain] Paul Watson has always said to us, 'I'm probably the only reality star that's trying to put himself out of the business in TV," Jason Carey, series executive producer for "Whale Wars" said, adding that if Japan ceases whaling, "then that's exactly what he would do. I don't think we'd have a series next year." s MNN reported last week, that optimism went out the door...

    Sea Shepherd Conservation Society’s Operation Ferocious Isles pilot whale defense campaign is almost over and it looks like our objective has been achieved. Not a single whale or dolphin has been killed on the beaches or in the waters of the Faeroe Islands under our watch this July and August. Earlier in the summer, the Faeroese police ordered that no grinds (pilot whale drives and slaughter) would be allowed for as long as the Sea Shepherd ships were in Faeroese waters. Thus, our mere watchful presence prevented any killings this summer saving hundreds of whales as a result. Not a...

    Do you like a good UFO detective story? Well, here's one for you. And it's ongoing, so we don't yet know the ending. It involves President John F. Kennedy's interest in UFOs shortly before his death and an allegation that he may have angered officials in his administration when he asked for information on the subject. Recently, the FBI opened a new website, "The Vault," that lets you view a variety of documents, including those regarding UFOs. I looked into one document that appears to include a phony UFO story and mentioned how important it is to be extremely careful...

    The Sea Shepherd scout vessel Gojira found the illegal Japanese whaling ship Sea Shepherd calls the Cetacean Death Star at 2115 NZST on February 9th. The Nisshin Maru was caught in the process of unlawfully flensing a whale on their aft deck at the position of 74 degrees 16 minutes south and 149 degrees 2 minutes west. The Gojira immediately gave chase as the Nisshin Maru attempted to escape by entering a field of ice. The Gojira attempted to block the huge factory ship to buy time for the Bob Barker to arrive from some 28 miles away. Captain Locky...

    When Mark Kirk is sworn in this afternoon, the U.S. Senate will once again have no African-Americans. Since Reconstruction, there have only been four black senators. Three of them -- Carol Moseley Braun, Barack Obama and Roland Burris -- have held the seat that Kirk is about to occupy. For reasons that go back more than a century, all the way to the First Great Migration from the South, Illinois has led the nation in black political empowerment. We’ve elected more black statewide officials than anyone else. We produced the first black president. And it was a matter of pride...

    JAPAN has attracted 27 countries to a summit of pro-whaling nations to be held next week. This comes as the Japanese whaling fleet prepares to leave port for its annual hunt in the Southern Ocean. The Japanese Fisheries Agency announced it would convene the summit after the collapse in June of international talks on a compromise plan to phase out the Antarctic whale hunt in return for a resumption of limited commercial whaling. The contentious Antarctic hunt - expected to again be the target of protests from the Sea Shepherd conservation group - is carried out under Japan's officially sanctioned...

    U.S. Senate candidates Alexi Giannoulias and Mark Kirk both say they want tougher enforcement of U.S. border security, but they disagree on what to do with immigrants who are already in the country illegally. Giannoulias wants to move forward with a broad plan to legalize illegal immigrants across the country. Kirk says any such reform attempt must wait while Congress focuses on ensuring the integrity of the U.S.- Mexico border.

    The U.S. Senate contest in Illinois could go down to the wire as Republican Mark Kirk and Democrat Alexi Giannoulias are still running close headed into the campaign's final week, a new Tribune/WGN poll shows. Kirk held a 44 percent to 41 percent advantage over Giannoulias, but the slight edge fell within the poll's 3.7 percentage-point margin of error. Another 7 percent were undecided — a key category of voters both parties are spending millions of dollars to sway with President Barack Obama's former Senate seat on the line in a nationally significant contest. Despite the statistical tightness of the...

"We tend to forget, in the West, that the United States has more Muslim blood on its hands than al-Qaeda has on its hands of innocent non Muslims," Feisal Abdul Rauf said at a 2005 lecture sponsored by the University of South Australia. After discussing the U.S.-led sanctions against Iraq under Saddam Hussein, Rauf went on to argue that America is to blame for its testy relationship with Islamic countries.

More than 200 protected pilot whales were hacked to death with knives and sharpened hooks by fishermen who trapped them in coves on the Faroe Islands. Disturbing images show deep gouges where whalers hacked at the animals to sever their spinal cords. Others show the bodies of unborn calves torn from their mothers' wombs. Crowds of islanders, including youngsters, gathered to watch the slaughter, known as "the grind". Anti-whaling activist Peter Hammarstedt, 28, exposed last week's killings...

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Kirk barely ahead of Giannoulias 42% to 39%. Seven percent (7%) would prefer another candidate, and 12% more are undecided at this point. In late April, Kirk earned a modest pick-up in support in the first survey conducted after the government's seizure of the failed Broadway Bank, the institution owned by Giannoulias' family.

    TOKYO -- Japan's biggest whaling ship returned to Tokyo on Monday bringing home only half its catch target after its expedition to the Antarctic Ocean was disrupted by anti-whaling protesters. The Nisshin Maru, the main harpoon ship of the five-vessel fleet, docked in the Tokyo harbor with harvests from the five-month season that began in November. The rest of the fleet returned over the past few weeks, including a ship that brought back an environmental activist who brazenly boarded it to protest the hunt. The fleet killed 506 minke whales and one fin whale during its expedition, fulfilling more than...
