    ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Evidence found at the remote, rugged Alaska site where an F-22 Raptor crashed indicates the pilot died, an Air Force official said Friday evening. Part of the jet's ejection seat was found at the site, which means Capt. Jeffrey Haney of Clarklake, Mich., could not have survived the Tuesday night crash, Col. Jack McMullen said. Also found were pieces of the flight suit Haney had been wearing. (excerpt)

    -excerpt- Immigration Minister Jason Kenney says he won't use his authority to intervene in a decision to bar controversial British MP George Galloway from entering Canada. Speaking in Calgary Friday, Kenney said he wouldn't override a Citizenship and Immigration Canada decision to deny Galloway permission to enter the country based on security grounds. Kenney's office said the 54-year-old Scot has expressed sympathy for the Taliban in Afghanistan and provided financial aid to the Palestinian militant group Hamas. -excerpt- Galloway called the decision "irrational, inexplicable and an affront to Canada's good name," and said he would fight the ruling with "all...

    AUSTRALIAN scientists are trying to give kangaroo-style stomachs to cattle and sheep in a bid to cut the emission of greenhouse gases blamed for global warming, researchers say. Thanks to special bacteria in their stomachs, kangaroo flatulence contains no methane and scientists want to transfer that bacteria to cattle and sheep who emit large quantities of the harmful gas. -snip- Even farmers who laugh at the idea of environmentally friendly kangaroo farts say that's nothing to joke about, particularly given the devastating drought Australia is suffering. -snip-

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/6283632.stm Diana ratings dwarf Live Earth The British TV audience for the Live Earth concerts was less than a third of that for last week's Concert for Diana. BBC One's average ratings between 2000 and 2200 BST on Saturday were 3.1 million, compared with 11.4 million for the Diana gig on the previous Sunday. Bad language by stars attracted more than 130 complaints to the BBC - but more than 400 complained about rock band Metallica's set being cut short. The BBC said the ratings were "good" for "a Saturday night in July". "The audience for Live Earth peaked at...

Mr Carter told the BBC Mr Blair's backing for US President George W Bush had been "apparently subservient". He said the UK's "almost undeviating" support for "the ill-advised policies of President Bush in Iraq have been a major tragedy for the world".

    Original Title -- > Snowy forests 'increase warming' Planting trees in snowy areas may worsen global warming as their canopies absorb sunlight which would otherwise be reflected by the snow, a study says. The report in US journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences says the pine forests of Europe, Siberia and Canada may contribute to warming. Only tropical forests effectively cool the earth by absorbing carbon dioxide and creating clouds, the report says.

    Iranian intelligence officers told the 15 British captives they first became suspicious about their activities after watching an interview with one of them on British television. Families of the hostages said that their loved ones had told them the Iranians had made the claim soon after capturing them. The revelation is likely to raise questions about the Ministry of Defence's decision to allow the media to accompany Cornwall, the ship on which the service personnel were based, and report on its activities. On 13 March - 10 days before the 15 were seized - Channel 5 broadcast an interview with...

    Capriati requests 'Bombs Over Baghdad' for warmups -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Associated Press KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. -- At Jennifer Capriati's request, the 1999 Outkast song "Bombs Over Baghdad'' was played on the stadium public-address system before her most recent match at the Nasdaq-100 Open.

Ruf then listened to the song with a tour official, and they found a one-minute segment that they decided wouldn't offend anyone. The...
