    WASHINGTON, March 22, 2007 – A garment factory in Najaf, Iraq, will start supplying clothes to U.S. and international retailers in a few months, a senior U.S. official said in Baghdad yesterday.

The white T-shirt has an oozing, blood-red...

    HONG KONG, Monday, Dec. 13 - The Commerce Ministry in China announced Sunday night that it would impose tariffs on some textile exports, a step that could avert a trade war with the United States and the European Union over a new influx of low-cost Chinese garments that had appeared likely to flood Western markets starting Jan. 1. The ministry's Web site, where the announcement was posted, did not specify the level of these export taxes or what textiles would be taxed. If the tariffs are not high enough to limit the competitiveness of Chinese exports, then the Bush administration...

Your eyes were ever on Jesus and His Pain. Is that the secret of your miraculous strength? How did your loving heart bear such a burden and such a weight? As you watched Himstumble and fall, were you tortured by the memory of all the yesterdays-His birth, His hidden life and His ministry?You were so desirous of everyone loving Him. What a heartache it wasto see...
