    March 27, 1999: it was the fourth night of Operation Allied Force, the NATO bombing campaign against Serbia. The effort's initial phase had gone remarkably well; U.S. and allied aircraft had inflicted heavy damaged on Serb air defenses and other critical targets, without the loss of a single NATO aircraft. When the Serbs tried to fight back, they generally paid a high price; three of their MiG-29 Fulcrums had been shot down in the early hours of the conflict, and a number of surface-to-air missile (SAM) batterys had been knocked out of action as well. But the Serbs would soon...

    Stunned dog owners and residents of a Severn neighborhood are shocked that authorities won't be charging a federal police officer who shot and killed a Siberian husky Monday night at a community dog park. Bear-Bear, a brown and white husky that was about 3 years old, was playing in the Quail Run dog park at about 6:30 p.m., running off leash inside the fenced-in area, when the officer and his wife arrived with a German shepherd, who was kept on a leash. When the dogs began to play roughly, the federal officer asked Bear-Bear's guardian, his owner's brother, to call...

    ...In 1984, Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, was the first person in Britain to own a Macintosh computer, and I was the second...Throughout the next decade I would regularly go round to Douglas' London house, floppy discs under my arm, and ring the doorbell. "Is he in?" I would pant excitedly. Douglas' wife Jane would point with resigned amusement to the stairs, and I would hurl myself up them to swap files and play. We were like children with toy train sets. And that was part of the problem. It was such fun. Computing was...

    Kyoto protocol: Adapt or fry 10:00 10 September 2006 From New Scientist Print Edition. Michael Reilly Is it all over for Kyoto? Should we accept that global warming is inevitable and plan accordingly? Yes, says Frances Cairncross, president of the British Association for the Advancement of Science (BA) which held its annual festival in Norwich, UK, this week. On Monday Cairncross described the Kyoto protocol as "ineffectual" and called for the world to accept that "a hotter, drier world" is coming - even if everyone fulfils their obligations under Kyoto and pegs levels of carbon dioxide back below the 1990...

    Wired magazine reported recently: "[Mike] Lazzo's trademark is bringing dead toons back to life. He got his big break when he created the cult hit Space Ghost Coast to Coast in 1994 by splicing new celebrity interviews into old animated footage. Last year, Futurama and Family Guy reruns did so well that it's likely both shows (which Fox killed in prime time) will produce new episodes."

    Nov. 21 — By Shaban Buza PRISTINA, Yugoslavia (Reuters) - An international prosecutor in Kosovo has charged four former rebels with war crimes against fellow ethnic Albanians in 1998-99, according to a copy of the indictment obtained by Reuters on Thursday.

It would be the first time former members of the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), which battled Serb forces during the Kosovo conflict, have been indicted for war crimes. The alleged victims were...
