    NEW YORK (AP) — Scientists have grown human cells inside pig embryos, a very early step toward the goal of growing livers and other human organs in animals to transplant into people. The cells made up just a tiny part of each embryo, and the embryos were grown for only a few weeks, researchers reported Thursday. Such human-animal research has raised ethical concerns. The U.S. government suspended taxpayer funding of experiments in 2015. The new work, done in California and Spain, was paid for by private foundations. Any growing of human organs in pigs is "far away," said Juan Carlos...

    In April 2012, the Co-operative, Britain’s fifth-largest food retailer, declared it would no longer be importing agricultural produce from the territories or any Israeli supplier linked to produce from there. Five years earlier, retail giant Marks & Spencer announced that it was boycotting products from the West Bank, while the Tesco supermarket chain stopped marketing dates from the Jordan Valley. And they are not alone: Over the past few years, numerous other companies from various countries around the world have announced some kind of a boycott of Israeli goods or companies. "A consumer boycott of Israeli goods primarily affects agricultural...

  • Is Soccer in the United States Really Growing?

    US Soccer Players ^ | Charles Boehm | February 26
    It's a common question: Is soccer in the United States really growing, beyond the mere literal sense of the word? Answer: Yes and no – though even some instances of “no” actually point to “yes.” Let me try to explain, starting with a brief flyover of central Virginia youth soccer. A few months ago the Richmond Strikers and Richmond Kickers youth clubs, fierce rivals and longtime members of the US Soccer Development Academy, announced that they were merging their Developmental Academy programs into a new entity called “Richmond United". This new joint venture would pool both clubs' talent and coaching...

    Many believers today try to manufacture and produce the heavenly joy and experiential wisdom by earthy carnal means, but the end results of these is the eventually collapse and shipwreck of the child of Almighty God on the rocks of unbelief (Matt 7:26-27, 1 Tim 1:19, Heb. 4:2, James 1:22). Only when the mind of the child of God is absolutely fixed (Is 26:3) and locked onto Almighty God’s NEVER changing Word - by faith with application (Heb. 11:1,6) - will the child of God enter into a realm of spiritual treasure and knowledge that transcends the confinements of time...

    When Republicans took control of the House in January, they pledged to make deep cuts in federal spending, and in April they succeeded in passing a bill advertised as cutting $38 billion from fiscal 2011's budget. Then in August, they pushed for a deal to cut an additional $2.4 trillion over the next decade. Some analysts have blamed these spending cuts for this year's economic slowdown. But data released by the Treasury Department on Friday show that, so far, there haven't been any spending cuts at all.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - State tax revenues continued to strengthen at the end of 2010, but even with that improvement the long-term outlook for most states "is still ominous," the Rockefeller Institute of Government said in a report released on Tuesday. "State fiscal recovery will be exceptionally slow and much longer compared to the prior recessions," said the group, which tracks states' finances and economies. Record revenue declines during the recession, increasing demands for more spending, and unemployment rates that remain nearly double their pre-recession levels mean that full economic recovery for many states will take several years, according to the...

The last tenant had been a 60-year-old divorced man whose body was not found until a month after he had died. "Every time I encounter such scenes, I hesitate to step inside. But someone has to clean up these flats . . . and be professional about it," said Ishimi of Anshin Net, a cleaning service that is part of R-Cube Co. in Ota Ward, Tokyo. The Nerima man's...

    Prosecutions Draw Attention to Influence of Witness Videos That Anthony Graber broke the law in early March is indisputable. He raced his Honda motorcycle down Interstate 95 in Maryland at 80 mph, popping a wheelie, roaring past cars and swerving across traffic lanes. But it wasn't his daredevil stunt that has the 25-year-old staff sergeant for the Maryland Air National Guard facing the possibility of 16 years in prison. For that, he was issued a speeding ticket. It was the video that Graber posted on YouTube one week later -- taken with his helmet camera -- of a plainclothes state...

    What's rapid economic growth to a Democrat? Or truth? Or fairness? Hillary Clinton gave us pretty good indication of all three on May 27th, when she said: "The rich are not paying their fair share in any nation that is facing the kind of employment issues [America currently does] - whether it's individual, corporate or whatever [form of] taxation forms." She then went on to cite Brazil as a paragon of economic growth - and taxation: "Brazil has the highest tax-to-GDP rate in the Western Hemisphere and guess what - they're growing like crazy." But, as with any "fact" a...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Ranging from vulgar language to talk of murder, threats against senators and representatives nearly tripled in recent months as the health care overhaul sparked public anger, The Washington Post reported. House and Senate lawmakers reported 42 threats from January to March, compared with 15 in the last three months of 2009, Senate Sergeant at Arms Terrance W. Gainer said in a story posted on the newspaper's Web site late Thursday. Nearly all the threats, including at least three that led to arrests, appeared to come from people who opposed the health care bill Democrats championed and President...
