  • New method makes embryo-safe stem cells

    Associated Press ^ | August 23 2006 | MATT CRENSON
    NEW YORK - In an innovative move, a biotech company has found a new way of making stem cells without destroying embryos, touting it as a way to defuse one of the country's fiercest political and ethical debates. Some opponents of the research said the method still doesn't satisfy their objections and many stem cell scientists and their supporters called it inefficient and politically wrong-headed. But a spokeswoman for President Bush, who vetoed legislation last month that would have allowed federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, called it a step in the right direction. And Dr. Robert Lanza, an...

    BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Residents of Benton County, in the northwest corner of Arkansas, are proud citizens of the Bible Belt. At last count, they filled 39 Baptist, 27 United Methodist and 20 Assembly of God churches. For decades, a local hospital has begun meetings with a reading from the New Testament and the library has featured an elaborate Christmas display. Then the Wal-Mart Jews arrived. Recruited from around the country as workers for Wal-Mart or one of its suppliers, hundreds of which have opened offices near the retailer's headquarters here, a growing number of Jewish families have become increasingly vocal...

    NEW DELHI (march 28) - Village elders ordered a Muslim man in eastern India to leave his wife after he accidentally divorced her in his sleep, a news report said Tuesday. Aftab Ansari uttered the Urdu word for divorce, "talaq," three times in his sleep, prompting his worried wife to discuss the matter with her friends, according to the Press Trust of India news agency. Under Islamic law, a husband need only say "I divorce you" three times to secure a permanent end to his marriage. Muslim leaders in the couple's village in West Bengal state found out and decreed...

    was always amazed at how composed Marla remained amid the violence and confusion of Iraq. One of my favorite memories of her was when I was sitting in the middle of the Palestine Hotel lobby in Baghdad, surrounded by a confusing swirl of soldiers, officials, and reporters. Fear swept over me. What was I doing here? I had come as a freelancer, with no experience covering a war. Just as I was quietly freaking out, Marla appeared in the dusty, harried scene. She was the picture of calm in a perfect French braid and long blue dress. She was like...

    Gay activists in South Africa have vowed to "flood" the country's blood services with blood donated by gay men. This follows an announcement by the South African National Blood Services that it would not accept donations from men who have sex with men. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance says its members would lie when asked the question: "Have you had male-to-male sex in the past five years?" The Alliance claims members have already donated 120 units of blood. It aims to flood the blood services with 70,000 units. 'Offensive' Alliance spokesman Juan Uys describes the question as "humiliating, offensive and...

    ERRE HAUTE, Ind. (Jan. 5) - Two NBC affiliates in Arkansas and Indiana are turning the page on upcoming series "The Book of Daniel," which has been drawing criticism for its portrayal of Christianity. The series depicts an Episcopalian minister, played by Aidan Quinn, struggling with an addiction to Vicodin, among other problems in his diocese. Jesus is actually a character on the series, depicted in imagined conversations with the minister. Last month, the conservative American Family Assn. began calling on affiliates and advertisers to bail out of "Daniel." Many stations have been flooded with e-mails and calls from viewers...

    KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — Officials on Wednesday blamed Taliban militants for beheading a teacher in a central Afghan town, the latest in a string of attacks against educators at schools where girls study. Armed men decapitated Malim Abdul Habib in his home in the town of Qalat late Tuesday and forced his wife and children to watch, said Ali Khail, a provincial government spokesman. The assailant did not harm the other relatives, he said. The attackers then fled and the wife called the police, Khail said. Police are questioning three people who were guests in the victim's home at the time....

    We are reading Jonathan Kozol's "Savage Inequalities" in my sociology class. I’m smart enough to know the book isn’t objective. And so far, I’ve sought out independent information about him, including that he is big government, but against national testing. And that he is against vouchers. And that he thinks the solution to the problem is more $$$ in the schools. And from reading the book it’s so so clear that he is a race monger. I understand why there is very little work and money in terms of economics but is there anything else? I’m hesitant to blame the...

    The myth of the Amazons, a tribe of bloodthirsty blond women thundering across arid battlefields to the horror of their male foes, has lingered for centuries. Their exploits seized the imagination of the Greek scribes Homer, Hippocrates, and Herodotus. But proof of their existence had always been lacking. Now, a 2,500-year-old mystery may have been solved, cracked by an American scientist whose 10-year odyssey led her tens of thousands of miles in pursuit of the truth. After unearthing a culture of ancient warrior women in the Russian steppes, Dr. Jeannine Davis-Kimball followed a trail of artifacts to a remote village...

    SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea on Tuesday refused to rule out a pre-emptive attack, even amid signs it may be willing to return to the nuclear bargaining table. The North poured out anti-American rhetoric - a tactic it has used in the past before entering negotiations - by claiming that Washington's "hostile policies" led it to develop nuclear weapons as a deterrent and warning against any attack to dislodge its leadership. "The United States should be aware that the choice of a pre-emptive attack is not only theirs," the North's official news agency quoted the state-run newspaper Minju Joson...

    Ask yourself: What if a Republican named Theodore Roosevelt hadn't helped write conservation into our national character? What if our march to progress and modernity had meant the step-by-step stripping, mining, and development of every inch of territory from coast to coast? That's a big question. We're still wrestling with it as a nation, and ground zero is Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Like many incomparable treasures of the West, ANWR sounds desolate, uninhabited. But it's not. It's the last 5 percent of Alaska's North Slope that's closed to drilling, and nothing like it exists anywhere else in the world....

    Terror suspects held at the US military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, are being subjected to routine religious humiliation, some detainees claim. They say interrogators use techniques - including sexual taunts - designed to break down devout Muslims. A lawyer who helped to compile the accounts, Marc Falkoff, told the BBC there was "systematic" religious abuse. The Pentagon has declined to comment on the allegations, saying inquiries are under way. About 540 non-Americans - many of whom were captured during the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 - are still being detained at the naval base, many without charge. No-one...

Jomhouri Eslami, in an editorial alluding to the US-led invasion of neighbouring Iraq two years ago, said an assault on Iran would be like "falling out of the frying pan into the fire". It said: "Iranians do not seek war, but if Bush Junior fancies invading Iran, they will face him with an iron will to bury him and his remaining superpower government.

    It's discreetly made its way into our media and infiltrated some of our mindsets. Unbeknownst to some of us, Liberals have been equating the just discrimination of homosexuals with that of race. Race and homosexuality are NOT interchangeable. In equating these terms being anti homosexuality is equivalent to being a racist. I just realized this when I began making the same comparison. There is a sort a fear when you realize that your way of thinking has been warped.

I was recently watching a video of him in 1994 and he seemed old then. Now he is 87. My theory is that- Robert Byrd just sticks around almost as the token old man Senator. And that the Democrats are playing a mind game. It was publicly stated that Byrd is the one holding back Condi’s confirmation. And Democrats can be secure in that mainstream media won’t dwell on the fact...

    Did you miss that headline in the news last week? Well, that's because no one ran it. Ingmar Guandique, a violent Salvadoran national who is serving a 10-year sentence for assaulting two female joggers in Washington's Rock Creek Park last year, was interrogated recently as part of the investigation into the intern murder mystery.

    Has anyone else noticed that the Leftists have backed off with that inane notion that the “Republicans are for the rich?” Now it’s “Republicans are for the stupid.” The myth that the Republican Party stands for the interests of an elitist upper class was finally expelled this past election when the states at the lower end of the economics spectrum went Republican.
