    United States Senate Democrats ^ | Sep 19, 2013 | Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
    Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today: “House Republicans’ vote to deny nutrition assistance to hungry, low-income Americans is shameful. The Senate will never pass such hateful, punitive legislation. “Under the leadership of Chairwoman Stabenow, the Senate forged a bipartisan compromise that saves $23 billion without taking food out of the mouths of hungry Americans. Whenever the House gets serious about passing real legislation, they should follow the lead set by Chairwoman Stabenow.”

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — It sounds like a horror movie: Biting ants invade by the millions. A camper's metal walls bulge from the pressure of ants nesting behind them. A circle of poison stops them for only a day, and then a fresh horde shows up, bringing babies. Stand in the yard, and in seconds ants cover your shoes. It's an extreme example of what can happen when the ants — which also can disable huge industrial plants — go unchecked. Controlling them can cost thousands of dollars. But the story is real, told by someone who's been studying ants...

    To be ready for Election Day, savvy shoppers already have stocked up on sympathy cards from the Capitol Gift Shop. Current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, will be most in need of cheering up, as she is unlikely to wield a gavel next year. The only question, according to the polls, is whether Republicans can defy the odds and sweep the tight races needed to wrest control of the Senate, too. Either way, it's best to have a card prepared for current Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who's trailing Republican challenger Sharron Angle in the most recent...

    China's hairiest man, a wannabe pop star who calls himself King Kong, wants to carry the Olympic torch on its journey to Beijing in 2008. Yu Zhenhuan, from the northeastern province of Liaoning, told the Xinhua news agency that his fame and extreme hirsutism qualified him to be one of the 21,880 people who will carry the torch on its roundabout, 85,000-mile voyage next year. "It would be a great honour to join the Olympic torch relay," said Mr Yu, a 30-year-old rock singer who was recently deposed as the world's hairiest man by a pair of Mexican brothers. "The...

    Some people who feed birds sometimes wish they'd never see another woodpecker, particularly the downy and hairy species. The little critters often are the ones who find wood house siding as appealing as a dead elm tree. Cedar siding is particularly interesting to them and other species - even the crow-sized pileated woodpeckers. Seven types of woodpeckers are common in Wisconsin: sapsuckers, flickers, pileated, downy, hairy, redheaded and red-breasted. "I live in a cedar-sided house and have an issue with woodpeckers," wrote a Poynette man. "They seem to think my house is a great place to hang out and pound...

    A study of DNA from ancient farmers in Europe shows sharp differences from that of modern Europeans — results that are likely to add fuel to the debate over European origins. Researchers led by Wolfgang Haak of Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany, argue that their finding supports the belief that modern residents of central Europe descended from Stone Age hunter-gatherers who were present 40,000 years ago, and not the early farmers who arrived thousands of years later. But other anthropologists questioned that conclusion, arguing that the available information isn't sufficient to support it. Haak's team used DNA from 24...

    France's Teachers Go On Strike Over Minister's Conservatism [Minister Bashes Leftists, Wants Local Control of Schools] By Hugh Schofield in Paris French teachers have embarked on their fourth national strike since the start of the school year in an atmosphere of increasingly bitter recrimination against the country's centre-right government. Teaching unions warn of mounting exasperation To the grievances over funding and jobs that kick-started the movement last autumn are now added anxiety over pensions and opposition to the government's programme of decentralisation. More generally, many in the educational establishment - a body closely aligned with the political left - are...

This is a guide to the six national terrestrial channels.

    French anti-Semitism reports surge Attacks on synagogues have increased since 11 September 2001 There was a dramatic rise in reported racist and anti-Semitic acts in France last year, according to the French Government's human rights watchdog. The National Consultative Commission on Human Rights (CNCDH) said there had been more than 300 registered instances of violence, and almost 1,000 cases of abuse or threats. Two-thirds of them were anti-Semitic - six times as many as in 2001. If the increase in the number of attacks aimed at the immigrant community is significant, the quantity of attacks aimed at the Jewish...
