    RAYMOND N.H. — With her trademark no-nonsense style, U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann promised Granite State voters she’d run the White House with a “titanium spine” today while blasting President Obama for wasting tax dollars and kowtowing to the politically correct. “The American people have had enough. They’ve had it up to here,” a fiery Bachmann told a crowd of roughly 250 gathered in a back yard in Raymond, N.H. “President Obama, you are a one-term president ... We can’t afford four more years of millions of Americans out of work. We can’t afford it. It’s got to go.”

    President Barack Obama, joined by Ohio governor Ted Strickland, came to Ohio today to continue his permanent campaign on health-care legislation. His campaign events during the 2008 presidential race attracted crowds of thousands of Ohioans; this time, President Obama managed a crowd of about 200 people. With his negative approval numbers in Ohio (44 percent approve, 52 percent disapprove), it isn’t much of a surprise that few showed up to hear him once again talk about health care. On health care, Ohioans disapprove of the job President Obama is doing (34 percent approve, 58 percent disapprove). On the health-care proposal,...

    In the Towers of Silence, an ancient ritual of death comes under threat By Peter Foster in New Delhi (Filed: 12/09/2006) The viability of the centuries-old Zoroastrian custom of allowing vultures to consume the corpses of its devotees has been called into question after a relative of one of the dead discovered piles of rotting bodies lying almost untouched by the birds. Dhun Baria, a member of Bombay's Zoroastrian community, known as Parsis, was shocked to be told that the body of her mother had lain untouched for nine months after she was laid to rest at the Towers of...

    Mother matters when it comes to the heart 17:59 27 April 2006 news service Roxanne Khamsi When it comes to some matters of the heart, mothers have more influence than fathers, a large-scale study finds, and the effect is particularly pronounced in daughters. Swedish researchers used a national registry of more than 11 million people stretching back to 1932 to assess how parents’ history of heart problems might link to the health woes of their children. Their analysis focused specifically on people in the database who had suffered a heart attack or angina, a severe constricting pain in the...

    MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (Dec. 20, 2005) -- Most children grow up playing with trucks and tanks, but few of them have the chance to ever experience riding the “Iron Horse.” Thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation and the Marines of 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, that experience came alive for six-year-old Brandon Rasnick of Lehigh Acres, Fla. Brandon, who was promoted to the rank of sergeant by his fellow Marines, has cystic fibrosis, a genetic lung disorder. Since his one wish was train with Marines and to “save the world,” the Marines of 2nd Tanks arranged a...

    FALLUJAH, Iraq (Dec. 15, 2005) -- Buildings and structures still stand riddled with bullets, evidence of last year’s encounter in Fallujah where Marines battled insurgents. However, the marketplace was thriving as locals turned out for the National Election today. Two months after the constitutional referendum, the people from the city of 80 mosques supported democracy in a peaceful manner once again for the second time this year. “The Fallujahans support democracy and want peace,” said Mayor Dhari Youssef al Arsah. “They want unity for Iraq and a government that represents all of Iraq.” An estimated 108,000 Fallujah residents voted during...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- So now we're supposed to believe that American sports -- and American society -- lost their innocence because baseball players used steroids to hit home runs. Repeat after me, please, and say it loud: American sports have never been innocent, and America's capitalist society has a built-in set of checks and balances because we know unfettered competition for money breeds corruption. So, Sports Illustrated, spare me the whining about the congressional hearings on steroids and baseball. Spare me the whining about the lost summer of '98 and what to do with your scrapbook. I was a...

    PARIS (AFP) - Human activities, notably the building of coastal resorts and the destruction of natural protection, contributed to the enormous loss of life from killer tidal waves that hit the shores of the Indian Ocean after an earthquake, an environmental expert said. Jeff McNeely, chief scientist of the Swiss-based World Conservation Union (IUCN), who lived for several years in Indonesia and Thailand, two of the countries hit by Sunday's disaster, said it was "nothing new for nature" in a geologically active region. "What has made this a disaster is that people have started to occupy part of the landscape...

    Convention Center Comes Tumbling Down In the end, the demise of the old Washington Convention Center resembled more of a deflation than an implosion -- the squat structure, at its tallest roughly the equivalent of a four-story building, didn't have far to fall. It died about 7:30 a.m. yesterday in a roughly 20-second ballet of crackling explosives, toppling walls and a large cloud of dust that marked the spot where on Dec. 10, 1982, city officials had hosted a grand opening reception. This time, Mayor Anthony A. Williams (D) presided over a gathering at the newer, flashier convention center a...
