    As Germany seek their first World Cup win since 1990, when they beat Argentina in Rome, Low, 54, relished the prospect of re-writing the history books with winning on this continent. "We know we can write history," he said. "In the past we have never had this. Latin Americans, on this continent, have dominated all the time. So why not? This could be an additional joy for us if we were to win as Europeans on Latin American soil." And the prospect of facing Messi as he tries to emulate Diego Maradona, who inspired Argentina to their last World Cup...

    Life is a challenge these days in Germany if you are not a football fan. You simply cannot avoid it. The media is awash with interest in Sunday's World Cup final, with the 'Nationalelf' (national 11) involved against old rivals Argentina. The stunning 7-1 semi-final win over hosts Brazil resulted in football euphoria only seen before in the country when West Germany won previous World Cup tournaments in 1954, 1974 and 1990. "Three days to go", "two days to go", "one day to go" - these have been the headlines from Germany's biggest selling tabloid Bild. It's the countdown to...
  • In final Virginia governor debate, Ken Cuccinelli hits Terry McAuliffe hard

    Washington Times ^ | Oct 24, 2013 | David Sherfinski
    Down in the polls, Republican Kenneth T. Cuccinelli on Thursday launched his sharpest attacks of Virginia’s gubernatorial campaign, accusing Terry McAuliffe of being a liar and of lacking substance while the Democrat said the attorney general’s economic plan would wreck the state’s economy. The candidates’ third and final debate covered little new ground but was marked by increasingly sharp exchanges, with Mr. Cuccinelli saying that being in favor of jobs and education is all well and good, but that talking is different from laying out a plan. “They’re not plans. I like those, too. I like education — I like...
  • North Korea Has Issued Its Ultimate Definite Last Totally 'Final Warning'

    Yahoo ^ | 3/29/13 | Sara Morrison
    North Korea greeted the weekend by stating through its KCNA news agency that it is entering a "state of war" with South Korea. This seems like much more serious news than an earlier KCNA story about using nutritious leeks in seasonal dishes, but there's reason to be skeptical that NoKo's latest declaration means anything at all. The statement wasn't accompanied by an actual attack, which would have been the most obvious sign that North Korea was serious about this. Instead, it's just more chest-beating, this time in response to the "provocation" of the U.S. flying stealth bombers over South Korea....

    Depending on who you are, if you receive e-mail updates from the Obama-Biden campaign you may have gotten a few strident notes in your inbox over the last week. In making the closing pitch to supporters and potential donors, the President’s campaign has struck a negative tone attempting to shame supporters who haven’t done enough into doing more. “You’ve waited until the last minute here,” one e-mail dated November 2 fumes to a supporter who has not contributed enough money to Obama for America. Noted for its versatile use of technology and micro-targeting, the Obama campaign blew its Republican opposition...

    The Obama administration issued a rule today that is sure to disappoint insurance agents: Fees paid to brokers and agents won’t count as medical care, under limits imposed on insurers in the 2010 federal health law. Photo by Thomas Hawk via Flickr That’s key because under the health law, insurers must spend at least 80 percent of their premium revenue on medical care and quality improvement – or issue rebates to consumers. The target is 85 percent for large-group issuers. Brokers had lobbied hard to have their fees exempted from the calculation of administrative costs, which also includes such expenses...

    ...Since Gingrich had taken control in January 1995, Republicans in the House had held together. Focused on fulfilling the Contract with America, they passed a flurry of legislation, which kept them occupied — and their divisions concealed — for the first two years. By July 1997, however, the contract was finished, and conservatives, particularly those elected in the Revolution of ’94, were growing frustrated with Gingrich’s leadership. The speaker was disorganized. “He knew nothing about running meetings and nothing about driving an agenda,” DeLay writes in his memoir, No Retreat, No Surrender. He was erratic. “On Monday, we would say...

    We put a hurting on Tom Petty’s “Free Falling” two weeks ago, which I posted later that week, changing it to “Fleebagging.” Last week, we destroyed Wings’ “Band on the Run” so thoroughly with our “Dems on the Run” cover that my video edit program went on strike before it would repurpose the clip from the NARN stream. But this week, we have the real deal in terms of a song spoof of the runaway Democrats from Wisconsin — and this time, we made the wise choice of not performing it live.

After more than two dozen debates, DFLer Mark Dayton, Republican Tom Emmer and the Independence Party's Tom Horner appeared for the last time together on TV before Election Day. The final debate is Sunday afternoon on MPR. Dayton criticized Emmer's cuts-alone approach to erasing a projected $5.8 billion state budget deficit as a recipe for local property tax increases. He said Emmer's reductions in health and human services would have human consequences. "We're talking...

While many mourn the loss of Law and Order or Lost, 24 has had a greater impact on America in our post-9/11 era.

    WASHINGTON, May 30, 2007 – The fifth and final brigade of the troop surge has arrived in Baghdad and should be fully operational by mid-July, the deputy director for operations on the Joint Staff said here today. “We are starting to see a shift in momentum that comes with having additional forces on the ground,” Army Brig. Gen. Perry Wiggins told Pentagon reporters in a news conference. Troops will clamp down on Baghdad’s northern and southern belts -- areas where insurgents “have had the opportunity to sit back and plan some of these attacks,” Wiggins said. “What we’re trying...

Added to that, the new telescope would be able to search further afield for planets that might have the right conditions to sustain life.

The shuttle programme began to be wound down, aspirations for the International Space Station were scaled back and scientific projects such as the Hubble telescope were decommissioned. However, beyond the shuttle, space is a booming market and, for the first time, much of the drive is coming from the private sector.

Iran says its program is peaceful, intended only to produce electricity. Board members of the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy...

  • Final factor: who will turn out voters

    11/01/2004 8:41:26 AM PST · by NormsRevenge · 2 replies · 274+ views
    COLUMBUS, OHIO – As President Bush and Sen. John Kerry hurtle into the final two days of the presidential race, the campaign has in some ways already moved out of their hands - and into the hands of people like Regina Weinhardt. Ms. Weinhardt, a stay-at-home mother of three in Thornbury Township, Pa., spent much of the weekend at the Hilltop Pub, a temporary headquarters for the Republican Party's get-out-the-vote drive in Delaware County, dialing up likely Bush voters and reading from a script reminding them to vote. A first-time volunteer, she admits that cold-calling strangers isn't easy - and...

  • Poll Reality Check: Final Polls for 2000 (all pollsters) vanity

    Keep in mind these polls do not reflect the sleazy democrat DUI revelation a few days before the election. That cost Bush a few points certainly. Check Zogby and CBS. They are the only ones that showed Gore leading. http://www.electoral-vote.com/info/polls-2000.html

    I'm making my first attempt to put together a picture presentation set to Toby Keith's "Courtesy of the Red White and Blue". I'm trying to find the picture of President Bush with the fireman at ground zero where he has his arm around the guy, megaphone in hand, saying the terrorists will hear from all of us soon. I've googled, used alltheweb, and been to many sites I thought would have it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Garden's set to rock Final touches in place for one huge party BY MAGGIE HABERMAN DAILY NEWS CITY HALL BUREAU Madison Square Garden is ready for a Republican party. The star-spangled balloons are blown up and bagged; the cherry-red carpet is nailed in place; the blue delegate seats are nailed to the floor, and the confetti with pictures of GeorgeW. and Laura Bush is set to go. There's one stage for the speakers and a separate, hydraulic platform for the entertainers. Then there's a secret stage for the President himself that won't appear until Thursday night. That was the view...

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and legislative leaders said they were near a final deal on the overdue state budget Thursday night after the governor abandoned some proposed fee increases and agreed to pump more money into higher education. Republicans, however, balked at a rewritten deal involving local government finances, and Schwarz enegger and legislative leaders met into the night trying to resolve the differences. "We are at this hour stuck on local government," Schwarzenegger spokesman Rob Stutzman said late Thursday. The Republican governor and lawmakers are two days late finishing work on the $103 billion spending plan, which relies heavily on...

    PHILADELPHIA — My brother took more trains, planes and automobiles in the last week of his life than he had taken in months, perhaps years. Those journeys were all the more surprising because they occurred in an intensive-care unit at the end of his three-year battle with bone marrow cancer. Bedridden after being rushed to the hospital for what would be the final eight days of his life, Kenny casually mentioned that he was visiting Detroit. It was a rather odd place for him to be traveling — even if only in his imagination — because the hospital was near...

    Californians Pay Final Respects to President Ronald Reagan 9 minutes ago By JEFF WILSON, Associated Press Writer SIMI VALLEY, Calif. - Nancy Reagan touched her cheek to the flag-covered casket, then made way for Americans by the thousands to pay respects Monday to Ronald Reagan before a cross-country journey to a state funeral in Washington. A steady, near-silent stream of people — some saluting, some praying — circled through the rotunda of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, where the body of the nation's 40th president will lie in repose through Tuesday before traveling to Washington. After Friday's state funeral, the...
  • Kerry's Final Four Copyright Infringement?

    After my previous post about the new waffles googlebomb, I noticed something interesting on JohnKerry.com (click here for a screen capture of the site.) The graphic featured above includes the NCAA's logo for the Final Four and the logo found on the Kerry site that is very similar to it. When you click on it on Kerry's site you go to another page with a poll (to see a screen capture of the poll click here.) I did some quick googling and was able to find some background information on the NCAA and its rights to the "Final Four"...
