    Sidney Drell, a noted Bay Area physicist, arms control advocate and veteran consultant on scientific and intelligence matters to the U.S. government, has won the Heinz Family Foundation's $250,000 Heinz Award for his efforts to limit "the threat of nuclear annihilation while assuring our nation's adequate defense." The foundation is also presenting a special non-remunerative medal to San Francisco philanthropist Richard Goldman, co-creator of the so-called Green Nobel Prize. Since 1994, the Heinz Awards have been presented annually to deserving recipients by the Heinz Family Foundation of Pittsburgh. This year, Drell was selected as one of five recipients, who work...

    PITTSBURGH - Chris Heinz, the stepson of U.S. Sen. John Kerry who was widely rumored to be considering a run for Congress, said Monday that he won't seek office in 2006. The son of the late Sen. John Heinz III had stumped for Kerry during his unsuccessful presidential bid last year, sparking rumors that Heinz would follow that with his own campaign against U.S. Rep. Melissa Hart. Heinz, 32, is the youngest of John and Teresa Heinz Kerry's three children. "I'm definitely not doing it in 2006. I've thought about it in my life, but it's just not right at...
  • Democrats' crazy talk music to GOP (Teresa, John Kerry, Hillary)

    It looks like Teresa Heinz Kerry is rubbing off on her husband. And on Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. For the Republican Party, this is a good thing. You'll recall that last month, Heinz Kerry put on her shiniest tinfoil hat and blamed the Democrats' loss in November on rigged voting machines. As reported in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, she openly questioned the election results and fixated on areas of the country where optical scanners were used to record votes. "Two brothers own 80 percent of the machines used in the United States," Heinz Kerry intoned, and it is "very easy to...

    Teresa Heinz Kerry this week challenged about 250 doctors and scientists to help Americans "connect the dots" between environmental pollution and rising cancer rates. Her remarks in an opening address for a conference on health and the environment included a barbed reference to "the belligerent indifference of our leaders in Washington toward environmental health issues." She urged the group to continue studying the causes of drastically increased rates of breast and prostate cancers and childhood leukemia. Heinz Kerry appeared calm and comfortable even though her speech at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center-Shadyside was interrupted several times and finally cut...

    Executors of the estate of the late Sen. John Heinz have withdrawn their appeal of a judge's ruling that opens the will to public inspection. Common Pleas Judge Frank J. Lucchino, in an order this month, granted petitions filed by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Tribune-Review Publishing Co. to modify an order that sealed the documents more than a decade ago. The estate documents, by court order without a public hearing, were impounded in Orphans' Court on April 5, 1991, a day after Heinz and six others were killed in a midair collision over suburban Philadelphia. The Los Angeles Times...

    TERESA Heinz, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, will be ridiculed more savagely than the other targets at tonight's Gridiron Club gala in Washington — and the woman playing Teresa is one of her biggest supporters in the media, ancient White House reporter and George W. Bush-hater Helen Thomas. At the club's 120th annual dinner of song and satire, Thomas, who once described Bush as "the worst president of my lifetime," will come out as Teresa and sing to the tune of "Thank Heaven for Little Girls." But Maurice Chevalier wouldn't recognize the new lyrics: "Thank heaven, he...
  • Judge unseals some Heinz records

    Judge unseals some Heinz records Associated Press PITTSBURGH – The public can see some records regarding the estate of the late Sen. H. John Heinz III, but others will remain sealed to protect the privacy and security of his widow, Teresa Heinz Kerry, and her family, a judge ruled. Attorneys for the Heinz estate had fought the efforts of two newspapers – the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette – to unseal the estate documents. The newspapers argued the records could shed light on Heinz Kerry's charitable activities and whether she used some of her inheritance to help the White...

    Americans love mystery and conspiracy theories. Crank up your favorite search engine and you can find wild theories about 9/11, famous celebrities or the founding fathers. I am not a shrink, so I can't tell you why we love them so much, but they are a part of Americana. One recent conspiracy theory centers around voting machines and the 2004 election. We don't have presidential elections every six months, so I am sure there were some glitches in the systems used on November 2nd, but as far as I have read, these did not have any effect whatsoever on the...

    WASHINGTON - The presidential campaign may be long over, but Teresa Heinz Kerry is still stirring the political pot. The outspoken wife of Sen. John F. Kerry [related, bio] last weekend openly questioned the legitimacy of electronic vote counts, cited GOP dirty tricks and scolded the Catholic Church for assailing her husband's pro-choice views. During a fund-raising event in Seattle, she charged it would be ``very easy to hack into the mother machines'' and steal an election. Heinz Kerry said she was appalled by the attacks of some Catholic bishops on her husband's support for abortion rights. ``You cannot have...

    CHICAGO — Ketchup maker H.J. Heinz Co. (HNZ) posted sharply lower third-quarter profits Monday, as the ketchup-maker said strong business in North America couldn't make up for rising fuel costs, soaring commodity prices and a large write-down. Earns for the quarter ending Jan. 26 was $152.4 million, or 43 cents per share. During the same period last year, the company earned $202.2 million, or 57 cents per share. The company reported $73.8 million in impairment charges during the third quarter, largely due to a write-off of an investment in the Hain Celestial Group Inc (HAIN). Excluding impairment charges and 4...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lead left in paint, water, soil and elsewhere may not only be affecting children's intelligence but may cause a significant proportion of violent crime, a U.S. researcher argued Friday. He said the U.S. government needs to do more to lower lead levels in the environment and parents need to think more about where their children may be getting exposed to lead. "When environmental lead finds its way into the developing brain, it disturbs neural mechanisms responsible for regulation of impulse. That can lead to antisocial and criminal behavior," said Dr. Herbert Needleman, a professor of psychiatry and...

John Kerry, D-Mass., lost the presidential election. Harvard scientist John Holdren introduced Heinz Kerry, chair of the Heinz Family Foundations, and extolled her philanthropic support of environmental issues. He also acknowledged her as "one of the few people who can rival Steve as a talker."

    "Troy" beauty Diane Kruger has reportedly struck up a romance with ketchup heir Chris Heinz. The New York Daily News reports the German model-turned-actress, 28, separated from her French husband Guillaume Canet several months ago and has been dating Heinz in secret since November. A friend says the romance was kept quiet so it wouldn't affect Heinz's stepfather Senator John Kerry's Presidential campaign for the White House last year. The pal says, "It was an issue during the campaign. Chris and Diane had to keep it quiet. But now that the campaign is over, they're more comfortable going public." In...

    Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry may want to consider running for president again in 2008. But his wife, local ketchup heiress Teresa Heinz Kerry of Fox Chapel, has made it clear she won't sit still for another campaign. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime thing," an unidentified Heinz Kerry friend told the Boston Herald. "Teresa will never do it again." Not necessarily, said Jeff Lewis, a Heinz Kerry spokesman. "Teresa Heinz is too smart to say that," he said. "She campaigned her heart out, as did her husband ... it was hard work and a great experience and we'll just go from there." According...

    When I first saw this DUmmie THREAD titled “Message from Chris Heinz,” I figured the MESSAGE must be something of great import. I half expected to see something like an Astronaut Dave Bowman type exclamation from 2010 when he declared, “My God! It's full of stars!” Instead I came upon a completely mundane statement by the freeloading Chris that he supports someone named Simon Rosenberg for the DNC Chair. So why would that parasitic rich boy even bother to publicly support some obscure guy for the DNC Chair? To find the answer to this one must think back to...

    The most heartening language trend of 2004 was the revival of the old-fashioned insult. When MSNBC's Chris Matthews, sitting in the safety of his studio, had some tough questions for U.S. Sen. Zell Miller, D-Ga., after Miller's over-the-top keynote address at the Republican National Convention, Miller went all Aaron Burr on him: "I wish I was over there, where I could get a little closer into your face. . . . I wish we lived in the day where you could challenge a person to a duel." Miller was giving away about 20 years and 90 pounds to Matthews. But...
