    Warming Scandal: The architect of climate fraud steps down, the creator of the infamous "hockey stick" is investigated, and Australia's parliament defeats cap-and-trade. We love the smell of truth in the morning. As the high priests of what Czech President Vaclav Klaus has called a "religion" prepare their pilgrimage to worship the earth goddess Gaia in Copenhagen, complete with humanity being sacrificed, the heresy of climate truth is finally being heard. The gospel of climate change, once expressed with the messianic fervor of an Elmer Gantry by Al Gore, is now expressed with the stammering incoherence of an Elmer Fudd...

    The game began as one person tipped backwards, beginning a ‘domino effect’ that toppled the 40 remaining mattresses. In a twist, the final person to fall landed on a conveyor belt where he was furnished with a teddy bear, a sleep mask, a duvet and a pillow. The mattress made its way along a platform and into the back of a waiting delivery van, whereupon it dropped onto a bed frame. As a final touch, a young woman leaps into the bed, joining the original sleeper. The van doors close and the newly assembled bed and its occupants are driven...

    This is a Rube Goldberg dream come true!!!! Be sure to read the info first, then watch the clip. And you thought those people that set up roomfuls of dominos to knock over were amazing. There are no computer graphics or digital tricks in the film. Everything you see really happened in real time exactly as you see it. The film took 606 takes. On the first 605 takes, something, usually very minor, didn't work. They would then have to set the whole thing up again. The crew spent weeks shooting night and day. By the time it was over,...

    A quarter-century has passed in Iran since the revolution of February 1979. This can be called the period of “three republics”. The first began with the revolution, lasted throughout the 1980-88 war with Iraq, and ended with the death of Ayatollah Khomeini in 1989. The second was the era of consolidation of state institutions under the presidency of Hashemi Rafsanjani from 1989 to 1997. The third was ushered in by the election of President Mohammad Khatami on a reform platform in 1997. The third republic will end with the election of a new president in June 2005. What will replace...

    KUWAIT CITY - In a major step toward granting political rights to women in Kuwait, lawmakers agreed Tuesday to permit them to vote and run in local council elections, although the measure requires more legislative action before it becomes law.

The emir has made it clear that he supports political rights for women. "This is the first step. ... I hope women will run in these (municipal)...
