    Early Risers More Likely To Cheat And Behave Dishonestly At Night, US Study Finds By Raziye Akkoc Early risers are more likely to behave dishonestly and cheat during night time hours, a study has found. Those who rise early see their energy levels decrease during the day which directly affects their behaviour. Researchers believe the way a person's internal body clock works could have an impact on the workplace. Psychologists tested the honesty of almost 200 individuals by asking them to undertake problem-solving tests and games. Those who took part were tested on how honest they were about their perfomance,...

    Irina Starykh, the reigning European champion selected for the Russian Olympic team, is reportedly among three biathletes who have failed drugs tests. In what is a bitter drugs-related blow for the host nation with the Opening Ceremony of the Games just nine days away the suspension of three unnamed athletes - from Russia and Lithuania - was announced in a statement by the International Biathlon Federation (IBU). The statement revealed "four adverse analytical findings were obtained in samples of three IBU athletes from Russia and Lithuania," and "the outcome of the test showed the presence of a non-specific substance."

    This is Rep. Charlie Rangel’s last hurrah. The 83-year-old Democrat is preparing to announce that this will be his last campaign for re-election, and that he will retire from Congress in 2016 as President Obama is leaving the White House, Harlem insiders told me. “Rangel is hoping that he will get more support for re-election by promising this will be his last term — and that party leaders will allow him to step down in dignity then, rather than backing a challenger now,” said one source.

The long-serving Democrat had been considered a retirement risk, but announced earlier this month he plans to run for reelection. He’s likely to face a contentious primary fight from state Sen.

Rangel, a decorated veteran of the Korean War, has for several years introduced legislation to bring back the draft and earlier this, for the first time, advocated that women should be included. The New York lawmaker said the burden of war unfairly falls on lower-income Americans. “They are not in...

By Tuesday night, the Democratic Party and Barack Obama in particular had to be an anxiety-ridden, soggy, depressing mess. The transition between Monday morning and Tuesday evening was stunning. The Republican Party went into the convention on a low note after Rep.

Meanwhile, the convention had a legitimate shot at cancellation; it seemed that...

    Now seems an unlikely time for handing out bonuses at bankrupt Solyndra LLC, but that’s the plan of company attorneys intending to dole out up to a half-million dollars to persuade key employees to stay put. Nearly two dozen Solyndra employees could receive bonuses ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 each under a proposal filed by Solyndra’s attorneys in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware. The attorneys say the extra money will add motivation at a time when workers at the solar company have little job security and more responsibilities because so many of their colleagues have been fired. The names of...

Democrats met behind closed doors at the party's Washington headquarters, hired consultants, drew their ideal districts and presented maps to the panel through proxies who never disclosed their party ties or “public interest” groups created specifically for the purpose. In many cases, the panel responded by doing just what the Democrats wanted. The New York-based nonprofit investigative foundation ProPublica released...

The last time I wrote about Charlie Rangel (D-NY), he was standing in the bowels of Congress shedding tears as Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) read House Resolution 1737, which resolved he be censured. Censure was his penalty for cheating the U.S. tax code which, as chairman of the Ways and Means Committee — and prior to that, as the ranking minority member — he had helped write. From the wailing and gnashing of teeth taking place that day, one would have thought that Rangel was actually receiving a penalty commensurate with...

    In an ideal world this reprehensible man would be fired for abusing state resources and time. But, in Oregon, he will probably be given a bonus and elected union boss. Can you imagine this monster has influence over children and he's encouraging people to feign racism and exploit it? i hope there is a special place in Hell for this man.

    Rep. Charlie Rangel's constituents tell congressman to keep tax advice to himselfBY Kate Nocera and Celeste Katz DAILY NEWS WRITERS Thursday, March 25th 2010, 4:00 AM Sorry, Charlie Rangel: People in your district really don't want your income tax advice. The congressman, who helped write the U.S. tax code - only to break it himself - mailed a tax-season flyer to constituents. "Hopefully, the information in this guide can help put money back into your pockets," Rangel says in the glossy, full-color mailbox-stuffer. Or take it from their pockets. "This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense," it...

    Legislation that would force government and Hill staffers to pay back taxes or lose their jobs was pulled from House committee markup today after Democrats hit the brakes. Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-Mass.), who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee that oversees government workers, told POLITICO he was concerned that the legislation would kick workers to the curb before it could be determined if the IRS had erred. “The employee can fight it, but they don’t have a job,” Lynch said during a committee markup today.

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- If you knew coworkers, former bosses or exes who cheated on their taxes, would you turn them in? The Internal Revenue Service can make it worth your while. As tax season nears, we all want to get as much money back from the IRS as possible. And while taking advantage of this year's new tax breaks will put some extra money in your pocket, snitching on a tax cheat could make you rich. In a recent poll from the IRS Oversight Board, 13% of those surveyed think cheating is acceptable, up from 9% in 2008. As...

    "I am NOT a sex addict!" A hostile Tiger Woods exploded with pent-up rage during sex addiction therapy after weeks of treating the entire program as a big joke, a close source told The Enquirer. He denied he has a problem, says the source, ridiculed fellow patients and refused to cooperate with therapists. The disgraced golfer treated group therapy with such contempt that he caused one female patient to break down in tears, the source says.

    Pajamas Media ^ | Jan. 18 | Sarah Durand
    Destroying the integrity of U.S. elections has been a longtime project for the far left. For over a decade, elected Democrats have manipulated the American people into believing their counterfeit altruistic intentions to enable more citizens to vote. Though largely flying under the radar, they’ve been looking for ways to use our legislative system to trump up fraudulent votes and their subterfuge knows no boundaries. In 1993 Congress passed the National Voter Registration Act, commonly called “motor voter.” Under the deception that it would boost voter turnout, the bill laid the foundation for much of the voter fraud we’ve seen...

    “If I lived in Massachusetts I’d try to vote 10 times. I don’t know if they’d let me or not but I’d try to. Yeah that’s right. I’d keep these bastards out. I would. Cause that’s exactly what they are.” MSNBC host Ed Schultz said this on his radio program: Maybe this is why he’s one of the Obama Administration’s favorite reporters? Well, he’s not the only one who is willing to cheat for Martha Coakley. So will the SEIU and the local Democratic Party.

    GOPer sets new push to oust tax-challenged RangelBy ISABEL VINCENT Last Updated: 2:54 PM, December 20, 2009 Where are Charlie Rangel's tax returns? That's the question Rep. John Carter (R-Texas) is asking as he threatens next month to lead a second attempt to strip the Harlem Democrat of his powerful post as Ways and Means Committee chairman. "Every tax attorney in the country will tell you that if a normal taxpayer committed the violations of Chairman Rangel, they would be assessed serious penalties and interest, if not charged with criminal tax evasion," Carter said. "This is about defending the rule...

    The Canadian doctor who performed a controversial medical procedure on Tiger Woods is under criminal investigation for drug violations on both sides of the border, bringing scrutiny to his colleagues, including one who worked closely with BALCO athletes and Yankee superstar Alex Rodriguez. Dr. Tony Galea was arrested in October and his Toronto clinic was raided by Canadian authorities after his assistant was detained at the U.S.-Canadian border and reportedly found to be in possession of illegal drugs, including human growth hormone (hGH) and Actovegin - a drug extracted from calf's blood that has been banned by the World Anti-Doping...

    Tough road for Rangel on tax pushBy Ian Swanson - 12/09/09 06:00 AM ET Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) wants to push a tax reform overhaul through Congress in 2010. The question is whether anyone will get behind the proposal offered by the embattled chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. Democrats’ agenda for 2010 is already crowded with a number of priorities, and the looming election will have leaders carefully selecting what to take up. There’s also the question of the ethics investigations targeting Rangel, which have weakened the chairman of one of Congress’s most powerful panels. Rangel appears undeterred,...
