    Yahoo! News ^ | 4/13/14 | Alister Doyle - Reuters
    (Reuters) - Following are main findings by the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in a report on Sunday saying that time is running out to keep global warming within agreed limits. The 33-page summary, by leading scientists, is meant to guide almost 200 governments which have promised to work out a deal by the end of 2015 to slow climate change. Nations have promised to limit warming to a maximum 2 degrees Celsius (3.6F) above pre-industrial times, seen as a threshold for more heat waves, droughts and rising seas - temperatures have already risen about 0.8C (1.4F).

    Tune in all this week for our User's Guide to Obamacare special coverage starting 6pmET. The new Obamacare health insurance exchanges open Tuesday, Oct. 1. This is the first time that individuals will be able to sign up for health insurance offered under the controversial Affordable Care Act. Opening of the exchanges marks the starting gun for the law's implementation, which is the biggest overhaul of the nation's health care system since Medicare in 1966. The devil will definitely be in the details -- and there are a lot of them -- and none has been more controversial than the...

    September 23, 2013 | David Dickinson on
    Currently, ISON sits about a magnitude below the projected light curve, (see below) but that isn’t all that unusual for a comet. Already, there’s been increasing talk of “ISON being a dud,” but as Universe Today’s Nancy Atkinson pointed out in a recent post, these assertions are still premature. The big question is what ISON will do leading up to perihelion, and if it will survive its passage 1.1 million kilometres above the surface of the Sun on November 28th to become a fine comet in the dawn skies in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Of course, there’s much...

    An alert guide dog saved a California man and woman on Monday from an out-of-control vehicle swerving backward down a public sidewalk at high speed. Todd Jurek and Danielle Alvarado are both employees of Guide Dogs for the Blind, a company that trains service dogs to assist visually impaired individuals. They were taking a O’Neil, an 18-month-old Labrador retriever, out for a training walk in San Rafael, Calif., on Monday morning when the near-death experience occurred. The San Jose Mercury News reports that a 93-year-old woman was reportedly trying to parallel park her vehicle when she lost control and began...

Tzedakah is a Hebrew word literally meaning righteousness. But the Jewish community commonly uses the word Tzedakah today to mean charity. And there are many Jewish charities out there. From UJA, AMIT, AIPAC, Magen David Adom and the ADL to Hadassah, American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, HIAS, Friends of the Israel Defense Forces and the The Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA). The list of Jewish charities transcents into the hundreds. So how can one determine which is the...

    Toronto Sun ^ | 2011-11-06 | Connie Woodcock
    One sunny afternoon in early fall, a bunch of my neighbours were standing around watching a sick raccoon die on somebody’s front lawn. In the old pre-gun registry days, someone would have gone home, got a shotgun or .22 and put the poor creature out of its misery. But, as one said to me, his gun wasn’t registered and he didn’t want to be seen with it. Someone might call the cops or a cruiser might happen by. That, in a nutshell, is what’s wrong with the gun registry: It makes criminals out of perfectly ordinary people doing nothing wrong,...

    Town Hall ^ | 11/21/10 | Matt Danko
    The libertarian position on intellectual property that is most commonly recited is perhaps the most extreme: the outright abolition of copyright as a relic of the past. Though certainly dramatic and not without some merit, the absence of some sort of copyright protection for creators reeks a little too much of Marxist collectivism by denying, if not vilifying, the profit motive. Hence, a more prudent reconciliation between Article I and Amendment I is in order. (Snip) It is the position of this paper to favor the freedom to express any idea over the exclusive right to reproduce an expression claimed.

    The health overhaul package passed by the House Sunday and sent to the Senate for final action is the most far-reaching health legislation since the creation of the Medicare and Medicaid programs. While the underlying Senate bill will become law as soon as President Barack Obama signs it, additional changes will occur if the Senate passes the reconciliation-bill part of the package. The following is a look at the impact of the entire package, which would extend insurance coverage to 32 million additional Americans by 2019, but also have an effect on almost every citizen.

I used to have a high end Hughes receiver with a 15+ day guide, but it burnt out recently, or got zapped in a power failure, and since DirecTV only uses their own brand recivers now, I ended up replacing my box with one of DirecTVs basic recievers, and quite frankly, it's been a big step down.

    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Bailout By Joseph Lawler on 1.13.09 In a recent Wall Street Journal opinion piece, Stephen Moore highlighted the parallels between today's economic events and those depicted in Ayn Rand's classic Atlas Shrugged. "Many of us who know Rand's work have noticed that with each passing week, and with each successive bailout plan and economic-stimulus scheme out of Washington, our current politicians are committing the very acts of economic lunacy that 'Atlas Shrugged' parodied in 1957," Moore wrote. Point taken: Rand was eerily prescient in predicting the encroachment of big government during this crisis. Then again, it...

    Don't stop hurricanes, guide them 03 May 2008 From New Scientist Print Edition. Would-be hurricane fighters hoping to stop a future Katrina before it makes landfall should aim to wound, not kill. The goal should be to re-route hurricanes and ease their fury, rather than try to stop them forming in the first place. This is the latest advice from weather modification experts. The field has a colourful history. In the 1960s and early 1970s, scientists on "Project Stormfury" tried in vain to disrupt the inner structure of hurricanes by seeding them with silver iodide crystals. Various other far-fetched ideas...

    Folks, whether you avoid thinking about it or not, we may be governed by socialists in all three branches of our government next year. We are going to get a Liberal administration one way or another. We already have Liberal judges all over the country. In the worst-case scenario, we would also get a bigger-margin Democratic congress with Liberals in the leadership positions. As conservatives we don't feel doom and gloom all the time as Liberals do (except now they have 'hope and change'). Lives go on. A good thing about being a conservative is that we prepare for a...

    In the long run, the battle to make America safer is part of a larger cause—the battle to make the free world safer and, indeed, to make the whole world freer. Victory will come only if representative government prevails, because freedom is the one force strong enough to stop tyranny and terror. In our modern day and age, America appears to have forgotten the guiding principles that have led her thus far. Getting America Right offers not a revolutionary, novel solution, but an answer that is as old as America herself—a conservative one...

    Scientists are over the moon at the W.M. Keck Observatory and the California Institute of Technology over a new discovery of a satellite orbiting the Solar System's 10th planet (2003 UB313). The newly discovered moon orbits the farthest object ever seen in the Solar System. The existence of the moon will help astronomers resolve the question of whether 2003 UB313, temporarily nicknamed "Xena," is more massive than Pluto and hence the 10th planet. A paper describing the discovery was submitted to the Astrophysical Journal Letters on October 3, 2005. "We were surprised because this is a completely different type of...

    With its large print and simple phrasing, The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History (or PIG as it cheerfully calls itself) is a fiery polemic aimed at students besieged by the "stale and predictable platitudes of mainstream texts." It is not a comprehensive history of America, but a kind of thematic one; a lot of liberal icons and shibboleths take a beating, and rightly so in many cases. Woodrow Wilson's League of Nations was an unrealistic scheme. Franklin Roosevelt's rhetoric was filled with dangerous "anti-business zealotry." Lyndon Johnson's Great Society was a failure with terrible consequences. Much of the book,...

According to news reports, the attorney is a longtime donor to candidates who favor abortion. A Catholic World News report on Tuesday revealed that James Birnbaum, who acts as an attorney for the Catholic diocese of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, has given thousands in donations to pro-abortion candidates.

    Tha Australian ^ | January 03, 2004 | Dani Cooper
    If there is life on other planets, an Australian team of astronomers has just found the region in our Milky Way galaxy where it is most likely to exist.. Unfortunately, technology does not yet exist to get man within reach of his nearest possible neighbours. According to Charles Lineweaver, writing in Science, there are four ingredients needed to create complex life: the presence of a host star (such as the Sun), enough heavy elements (carbon, oxygen and nitrogen) to form a planet, sufficient time for biological evolution (at least four billion years in the case of Earth) and the absence...

    BBC ^ | 12-26-2003 | Professor Richard Wiseman
    The loser's guide to getting lucky By Professor Richard Wiseman University of Hertfordshire Why do some people get all the luck while others never get the breaks they deserve? A psychologist says he has discovered the answer. Ten years ago, I set out to examine luck. I wanted to know why some people are always in the right place at the right time, while others consistently experience ill fortune. I placed advertisements in national newspapers asking for people who felt consistently lucky or unlucky to contact me. Hundreds of extraordinary men and women volunteered for my research and, over the...

    A German website is giving the country's prisons star ratings just like a hotel guide. Inmates, staff and visitors rate the prisons based on a system of up to five stars. Almost all 220 German prisons are listed. One of the most popular is Hamburg prison, nicknamed Santa Fu. One inmate wrote: "Very good food, very nice cells, nice officers, a decent daily rhythm. I keep coming back." A member of staff there added: "The only thing missing is 24-hour room service. Sometimes I think I should change sides." But there is also heavy criticism, like the comments on Erfurt...

    The Irish Independent ^ | January 14, 2003 | Eddie Lennon
    There's a whole new world of PC substitutes out there, says EDDIE LENNON. Time was when political correctness was the wet blanket of every conversation. You had to tiptoe around your own vocabulary like a mouse faced with a cheese-laden mousetrap, terrified of ensnaring yourself by just being yourself. Every chit-chat became a series of conversational booby-traps, each of them just waiting to help you offend one minority or another by a less than fully premeditated remark. For a short time that somehow seemed like forever, everything became so PC that life was like one eternally stilted dinner party, redolent...

      The writer of the book was on MSNBC and looked very good.http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0028632613/qid=1018190770/sr=2-1/ref=sr_2_1/104-0554275-4226319  17 of 22 people found the following review helpful: Remarkable, January 28, 2002 Reviewer: A reader It is really remarkable the lengths to which the Arab lobby and their longtime cohorts have gone to pan this excellent book. One would think that Amazon was in bed with them, too, since it has effectively allowed for a forum of negative comments about this book that are shallow and non-specific, saying only that "the book is bad." Sorry, but that's not helpful. Nor is the term "propaganda" that is so...
