    Cityscape of Pretoria, the capital of South Africa in 2010. The official who oversees South Africa's capital, Pretoria, says the city will have a new name by the end of next year. The mayor of Tshwane municipality, Kgosientso Ramokgopa, says all of Pretoria will be renamed Tshwane by the end of 2012. The ruling African National Congress party has been working for years to rename the capital Tshwane, but the move has been strongly resisted, mainly by white South Africans. Ramokgopa says the issue is currently before the culture minister for approval, adding his municipality would be "resolute and stubborn"...

    ‘All modern discoveries are by Muslim scientists’ LAHORE: Muslim scientists have made all discoveries of the current age, said University of Columbia’s Arabic and Islamic Studies prof George Saliba at a seminar at the Government College University (GCU) on Monday.

    My friends, my sister, and I were hanging out at a gay bar in West Hollywood last night (yes, really) because you can buy $1 draft beers during happy hour, and my little sister can flirt with men who won't actually try to take her home. She just moved out to Hollywood to live with me and, being only 29, she still likes to party.

    Fiedor Report On the News #320 ^ | 10-10-04 | Doug Fiedor
    Last week, Cliff Kincaid, Editor of the Accuracy In Media Report[1], wrote that at least two in Congress have considered a Rathergate hearing. Actually, the way I heard it was that Rep. Chris Cox requested that House Commerce Committee Chairman Joe Barton (R-TX) schedule a hearing but Barton was not overly enthused with the idea. Rep. Barton is quoted as saying, "A news organization's responsibility is to facts and truth, but the oversight of network news generally is a matter best sorted out by the viewing public and the news media." I wholeheartedly agree. There is a simple reason most...
