    An almost unfathomable gap divides public attitudes on basic issues involving gender, race, religion and politics in America, fueled by dramatic ideological and partisan divisions that offer the prospect of more of the bitter political battles that played out in Washington this month.

    Every year in Israel some 70,000 people buckle down and study for the standardized Psychometric exam, a crucial step in their hopeful pursuit of higher education. Examinees from every sector in the country take the same exact test but when the results are analyzed the gap between the Jewish and Arab averages is significant. The National Institute for Testing and Evaluation reports a 94 point gap between the two sectors' averages, with the Arab average standing at 469 and the Jewish one at 563. Psychometric scores range between 200 and 800, and are curved based on the current year's scores...

    SACRAMENTO State lawmakers are betting that voters eager to avoid a Katrina-style disaster in California will rally behind a $4.1 billion bond on the November ballot to shore up the state's fragile levees. While few experts disagree that California needs to rebuild its aging levee system, an Associated Press review of the bond has found the measure requires voters to take a leap of faith that the state will spend the money the way lawmakers have promised. An extensive examination of the measure, reviews of state and federal studies, and interviews with two dozen water experts, lawmakers and environmentalists have...

    SAN DIEGO -- An American teenager was caught sneaking two illegal immigrants in the trunk of a stolen Acura in September 2004. Chances are he wasn't too worried: It was the third time in two weeks he had been caught smuggling migrants, one or two at a time. After that, the 19-year-old might have given up smuggling, but a fourth arrest two months later suggests he simply got better at it, or luckier. Again, he was released without criminal charges. "This is an example of a kid who knows the system," states an internal Border Patrol document that decries the...

    OSLO (Reuters) - About 190 nations meet in Germany next week to try to bridge vast policy gaps between the United States and its main allies over how to combat climate change amid growing evidence that the world is warming. The May 15-16 "dialogue" will involve around 40 rich nations which are capping emissions of heat-trapping gases under the U.N.'s Kyoto Protocol, as well as outsiders such as the United States and developing nations. "Scientific evidence of the dramatic effects of human-induced climate change is becoming stronger," said Richard Kinley, acting head of the U.N. Climate Change Secretariat which will...

    GENEVA (AFP) - World Trade Organization countries met at a vital stage on the tough road towards a treaty to open up global commerce, after almost four years of on-off talks. The 148 member countries met against a background of persistent splits particularly on farm subsidies and services and with a WTO summit in Hong Kong looming just five months away. They are under growing pressure to accelerate the so-called Doha Round negotiations and EU Trade Commissioner Peter Mandelson, initially not due to attend, is now expected to play a part. India's trade minister Kamal Nath was another top official...

    John Kerry is in deep doo doo. Read the articles just posted at http://CrushKerry.Com. A press conference tomorrow will prove to be a "major" blow to the Kerry campaign (see article called "Kerry Unfit to be Commander-in-Chief) Also read the article about "Major Gaps in Kerry's Military Service". It now seems that Kerry may have been AWOL!! Last, but not least, take a look at the article called "Kerry Lied. Good Men Died".
