    A.N.S .W.E.R.'s response to Bush:Hit the Streets September 24!Recognizing that the people of the United States have turned dramat ically against the war and occupation of Iraq, Bush went on national televi sion tonight to defend his imperial foreign policy. He repea tedly invoked September 11 as a pretext for the criminal and illegal war ag ainst Iraq.

Now Bush has taken on the additional role of Recruiter-in-Chi ef, urging young people to sign up for military...

    WASHINGTON — Megan Watson, leader of Mainstream Moms, is so angry at military recruiters for invading schools to sign up unwary youth for combat in Iraq that she and her group launched an online movement, “LeaveMyChildAlone.org.” “They offer these trinkets to lure our children to enlist,” Watson said in a phone interview from her home in Bolinas, Calif. “This is very aggressive, demographic targeting to have conversations with our kids that should not be happening.” All branches of the military are falling short of recruiting goals as parents say, in effect, “Hell no! My kids won’t go!” Watson blasted the...

    Milk 'can combat heart disease' By Nic Fleming, Health Correspondent (Filed: 24/05/2005) A diet rich in milk may protect people from heart disease and strokes, says a study published today. Researchers who studied the diets and health of men over a 20-year period found that those who drank a lot of milk were 12 per cent less likely to have a heart attack and almost half as likely to suffer a stroke. The authors of the study - published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health - suggest that the widespread perception that milk increases the risk of heart...

    commentary Javad Gholam Tamayomi, Omid Memarian, Shahram Rafihzadeh, Hanif Mazroi, Rozbeh Mir Ebrahimi, Mahboubeh Abbasgholizadeh and Fereshteh Ghazi are some of the most courageous people you've never met. Not exactly household names, but each deserves a standing ovation. During a crackdown against Iran's nascent online press last year, these sundry online journalists and bloggers got chucked into jail. The cyber seven were subsequently released but continue to invite the periodic and not-so-tender attention of the local police. A blogger named Mojtaba Saminejad, also arrested on trumped-up charges at the beginning of November after condemning the jailings in his blog, is...

"My daddy killed me with a knife and I'm gone," the boy told a dispatcher. "Can you please send the Army men or the ambulance?" The soft-spoken child gave a wrong address and then hung up. But a second dispatcher called back, keeping him on the line while a frantic search was under way. On Wednesday, authorities released the remarkable tape of Anthony Sukto's calm courage during the Oct. 22 ordeal, and the frantic efforts to...

    CANADIAN ANGLICANS LAUNCH NEW ORGANIZATIONS FOR PERSECUTED FAITHFUL by David W. Virtue in Ottawa OTTAWA, ON-(8/31/2004)--Leaders of 700 orthodox Canadian Anglicans meeting under the banner of ESSENTIALS, announced yesterday the formation of two new organizations - a Federation and a Network - to allow beleaguered Anglicans a safe place from revisionist diocesan bishops.

The Federation will act as an umbrella for all orthodox Canadian Anglicans, bishops, clergy and...

    Breakaway Anglicans won't vacate churches Bishop trying to evict two parishes that left church over blessings of same-sex unions By Douglas Todd, Sun Religion Reporter VANCOUVER: Two B.C. priests at breakaway Anglican parishes are defying their former bishop's request to vacate their church properties, which are together worth more than $1.2 million. The two Vancouver-area conservative priests – who recently left the Anglican Church of Canada because they vehemently oppose same-sex blessings – say their congregations have no intention of saying goodbye to the buildings in which they have worshipped for years. “We own the premises and we’re carrying on...

    Smoking marijuana, the federal government constantly reminds us, is dangerous in every way. It impairs cognitive functioning, makes you high, and, because it’s smoked, is a demon in a bong hit—and so on. A counterargument is that pot has helped thousands of cancer and AIDS patients, for example, contend with side effects of their illnesses and treatments. There is also evidence that marijuana works for some psychiatric disorders as well, principally depression and bipolar disorder. Among some people, pot is jokingly referred to as “green Prozac.” The problem is you can’t legally take a toke for psychiatric diagnoses. “I think...

He is now no longer licensed to practice as a parish priest and no longer a member of the Anglican Church of Canada....

    Studies Find Rats Can Get Hooked on Drugs 35 minutes ago By LAURAN NEERGAARD, AP Medical Writer WASHINGTON - Rats can become drug addicts. That's important to know, scientists say, and has taken a long time to prove. Now two studies by French and British researchers show the animals exhibit the same compulsive drive for cocaine as people do once they're truly hooked. Only through experiments with addicted animals can scientists eventually learn what makes some people particularly vulnerable to addiction while others can quit at will, addiction specialists say. Addicted rats also could help uncover new anti-drug therapies. Until...

    Some Military Bases on Alert for Coke's GPS Promotion Ellen Simon/Associated Press Jul 1, 2004 NEW YORK (AP) - There's a new security threat at some of the nation's military bases - and it looks uncannily like a can of Coke. Specially rigged Coke cans, part of a summer promotion, contain cell phones and global positioning chips. That has officials at some installations worried the cans could be used to eavesdrop, and they are instituting protective measures. Coca-Cola Co. says such concerns are nothing but fizz. Mart Martin, a Coca-Cola spokesman, said no one would mistake one of the winning...

    Priests to fight 'eviction notices' By Ethan Baron, Staff Reporter, Vancouver Province Newspaper Two Anglican priests have vowed to fight "eviction" from their West Coast churches, as the battle over same-sex unions heats up. Rev. Barclay Mayo and Rev. Ed Hird notified Bishop Michael Ingham in March that they were severing their ties to the New Westminster Diocese and the Anglican Church of Canada. Now, Ingham has sent the priests letters they call ‘eviction notices’. “I would invite you to seek out alternative worship space for those whom you lead,” Ingham said in his letters dated June 23. “He’s invoking...
