    A new drug compound can recharge a class of antibiotics used to fight superbug bacteria, improving the antibiotics’ effectiveness 16-fold. It’s another volley on the part of humans in the ongoing battle between new drugs and bacterial resistance. This new compound doesn’t fight the bacteria itself — it just makes the antibacterial drugs more potent, and better able to fight the bacteria despite the bugs’ resistance. The compound, developed at North Carolina State University, could help researchers fight an emerging problem with a tricky bacterial enzyme. The enzyme is called New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase, or NDM-1, and it has been found...

    HYANNIS PORT, Mass. (AP) — For the Kennedys, the family compound has long been a place to relax, to celebrate and to grieve. Members of America's most glamorous political dynasty played touch football on the lawn, walked the beach and sailed the sound. The cluster of white-clapboard homes on Cape Cod served as the summer White House when Jack was president. It was there that the family retreated after his assassination. And it was there that Caroline held her wedding reception and Ted spent his final days. Now, as the Kennedys gather for another wedding there, the family is divided...

Officials are not sure where in the compound the pornography was found or who was viewing it, but said the collection contained recorded video and is "fairly extensive."

    NEWSCORE - Pakistan hit back Wednesday about US fears that it could not be trusted with details of the raid on osama bin Laden's compound and claimed it had identified the potential hideout as far back as 2009. The foreign minister, Salman Bashir, said CIA chief Leon Panetta's suggestion that Pakistan could have tipped off the al Qaeda leader and jeopardized Sunday's operation was "disquieting."

    Barack Obama kept military commanders hanging by declaring he would 'sleep on it' before taking 16 hours to give the go-ahead to raid Bin Laden's compound. Hit squads of specialist Navy Seals - who were not even told who they were preparing to capture - had practised the mission at two reconstructions of the terror chiefs sprawling compound. The mission looked set to be given the all clear last Thursday when analysts confirmed beyond doubt that Bin Laden was in busy town of Abbottabad in northern Pakistan.

Usama bin Laden's body sank to the bottom of the Arabian Sea Monday morning after he was buried in accordance with Islamic practice. But while his death marked the end of one counterterror mission -- a big one -- it could unlock new clues as intelligence analysts start to review the materials captured at bin Laden's Pakistan compound during the raid. Along with bin Laden's body, electronics and hard drives were seized by U.S. forces following the...

U.S. intelligence agencies found the compound after years of following a trail that began with information they gleaned from “post-9/11 period” al Qaeda detainees, the official said in a conference call briefing held by the White House shortly after midnight.

There's little information available about the station online, but a Flickr photo taken in February 2007 shows it in rough condition. The station, at that time, was "included in the demolition list of the provincial government works department," the caption claims.

Some time after Sept. 11, detainees held by the U.S. told interrogators about a man believed to work as a courier for...

    TRIPOLI, Libya – NATO airstrikes targeted the center of Moammar Gadhafi's seat of power early Monday, destroying a multi-story library and office and badly damaging a reception hall for visiting dignitaries. Gadhafi's whereabouts at the time of the attack on his sprawling Bab al-Azizya compound were unclear. A security official at the scene said four people were lightly hurt. Monday's strike came after Gadhafi's forces unleashed a barrage of shells and rockets at the besieged rebel city of Misrata, in an especially bloody weekend that left at least 32 dead and dozens wounded.

    CHAMPAIGN, lll. — A diet rich in the plant compound luteolin reduces age-related inflammation in the brain and related memory deficits by directly inhibiting the release of inflammatory molecules in the brain, researchers report. Luteolin (LOOT-ee-oh-lin) is found in many plants, including carrots, peppers, celery, olive oil, peppermint, rosemary and chamomile. The new study, which examined the effects of dietary luteolin in a mouse model of aging, appears in the Journal of Nutrition. The researchers focused on microglial cells, specialized immune cells that reside in the brain and spinal cord. Infections stimulate microglia to produce signaling molecules, called cytokines, which...

Such finds have led to a new industry--bioprospecting--and such prospectors have fanned out across the globe in search of nature's remedies. Now a compound isolated from coral collected off the coast of Okinawa has shown the ability to slow down and possibly prevent virus replication and it may hold promise as a cancer treatment.

    Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat on Saturday ordered his security forces to round up 17 wanted men sheltering in his compound in Ramallah and to transfer them to Jericho and the Gaza Strip. Palestinian sources in Ramallah said the men were detained in a pre-dawn raid on their rooms inside the compound by masked security agents belonging to Force 17, Arafat's "presidential guard." Palestinian security officials said most of the wanted men belong to Fatah's armed wing, Aksa Martyrs Brigades. They confirmed that the decision to evict them from Arafat's compound was in line with an agreement with Israel and...

    "Explosions in Riyadh, So Let's Blame Dubya!" Posted by Doc Farmer Sunday, May 18, 2003 I lived in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, for about four-and-a-half years before I moved to Doha, Qatar, last July. And other than the way they drive in Riyadh, I really liked it there. I've still got friends there. I've even got family there--my cousin and her hubby. So you can imagine my concern when I heard about the terrorist bombings of three residential compounds and a joint Saudi/American business there. I sent an e-mail to my friends and colleagues there, and thank God, they're all fine....

    Voluntary Alternatives to Taxation Stuart K. Hayashi Most Americans believe paying taxes is a patriotic duty. Yet this very nation was founded upon people evading taxes in 1776. When individuals don’t pay taxes, the government goes after them with guns, even though they haven’t used force on anyone else. Thus, taxation is an initiation of physical force against the individual’s right to life, liberty and property. Because taxation is forcible extortion, it violates your right to property. If you don’t pay taxes, you can be jailed, hence depriving you the right to liberty. And if tax “evaders” fight tax...

Ask A Brown Dwarf Until recently, "How's the weather up there?" was a question for pilots, NBA stars and friendly giants. Today, however, you might also ask a dwarf. A brown dwarf, that is. Brown dwarfs, which have been described as "failed stars," are celestial bodies more massive than planets like Jupiter but not large enough to sustain the thermonuclear reactions that make a star shine. In the June 1, 2002 issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters, Katharina Lodders, a senior research...
