    The United Nations’ World Food Summit held in Rome in 2002 to discuss how to cut world hunger in half by 2015 came under heavy criticism for the lavish feasts held during that conference. However, this spectacle of UN extravagance during a conference devoted to hunger pales in comparison to the obscene presence of Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the UN’s three-day summit on the world’s food crisis that opened in Rome on June 3, 2008.

    CAMP PENDLETON ---- A lance corporal convicted Thursday of killing an Iraqi army private a year ago and who has spent the last 10 months in the Camp Pendleton brig will not serve any more time, a military jury decided Friday. Lance Cpl. Delano V. Holmes smiled at his attorneys shortly after the sentence was announced in a base courtroom. The jury that found Holmes guilty of negligent homicide and lying to investigators could have sentenced him to as much as eight years in prison. Although it decided he should not serve any more time, the panel ordered that he...

    CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) — A court-martial opened Monday for a Marine accused of murdering an Iraqi soldier while the two men stood guard together in Fallujah. But the 22-year-old reservist says he acted in self-defense. Lance Cpl. Delano Holmes, of Indianapolis, is accused of stabbing Munther Jasem Muhammed Hassin to death as they stood watch at a security post on Dec. 31, 2006. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of unpremeditated murder and making a false statement. His court-martial started Monday with attorneys for both sides arguing motions over the use of photographs of the soldier's body as...

    CAMP PENDLETON ---- A Marine lance corporal asserts he killed an Iraqi soldier last New Year's Eve because he feared for his life after the two became embroiled in a struggle involving a cigarette and cell phone. The Marine Corps alleges that the killing was not self-defense, but a case of rage-driven murder that could result in Lance Cpl. Delano "Del" Holmes facing a life prison sentence if convicted. On Monday, a 10-member military jury will gather in a Camp Pendleton courtroom to hear the case and decide which version of the events is best supported by the evidence. "It...

    All right, that title is a little misleading. In fact, when I first read the original press release, my skepticism alarms went off. But it's true, the amazing Comet Holmes now has a halo that's larger than the Sun. Not bad for a comet that, until three weeks ago, was just a tiny dim dirty snowball orbiting near Jupiter. Comet Holmes made its spectacular outburst on October 24, 2007. Formally dim enough to only be visible in the most powerful telescopes, it quickly brightened up to be seen with the unaided eye - even in light-polluted cities (like my very...

    CAMP PENDLETON – In the months before Marine Lance Cpl. Delano Holmes fatally stabbed an Iraqi soldier in their sentry outpost, military doctors were treating him with drugs for anxiety and insomnia, his attorneys said this week. Prosecutors have charged Holmes with murdering Mutather Jasem Muhammed Hassin on Dec. 31 in Fallujah. Holmes cut and stabbed Hassin 40 times with his combat knife, with some of the wounds piercing the victim's spine. The revelations come about a month before the start of Holmes' court-martial at Camp Pendleton. They provide further evidence that defense lawyers, as part of their overall court...

    One of the most elusive figures in Hollywood since the heyday of Howard Hughes may be about to make her debut. The New York Post reported on Wednesday that Vanity Fair magazine has landed the first photos of Suri Cruise, the baby born to actor Tom Cruise and actress Katie Holmes last April 18 and who has never been seen by the public, although family friend Penelope Cruz says she is "beautiful." The Post said the pictures were taken by celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz and will be published this fall.

    Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise have welcomed their first child together, two inside sources have told PEOPLE. No other details are immediately available. In late October, barely six months into their romance, an ecstatic Cruise and Holmes revealed that they were expectant parents. Cruise, 43, and Holmes, 27, had made no secret of their desire to start a family together: When asked by PEOPLE last June if they were planning to have children, Holmes smiled and said simply, "Yes." Friends of the Toledo, Ohio-bred Holmes called her perfectly suited to her upcoming role. "She almost seems born for motherhood," said...

    (AP)— Katie Holmes was raised a Catholic, but, says fiance Tom Cruise, their soon-to-arrive baby will not have a Catholic baptism. "No," Cruise tells Diane Sawyer in an interview on ABC's "Primetime," airing Friday, 9 p.m. EDT. "No, I mean you can be Catholic and be a Scientologist. You can be Jewish and be a Scientologist. But we're just Scientologists." The 27-year-old Holmes' switch to Scientology has sparked reports of a rift between her devout parents, Ohio natives Martin and Kathleen, and the 43-year-old actor, who introduced her to Scientology. However, Cruise shrugs off the stories of family friction, telling...

    Katie Holmes Agrees Motherly Contact With Infant Is Bad Katie Holmes has been banned from speaking to her baby for a week after it is born, it has been reported. The pregnant actress has agreed not to talk to her new arrival, believed to be a girl, for at least seven days after she has entered the world, in accordance with fiancé Tom Cruise's Scientology beliefs. Katie, who is due to give birth any day, has already promised Tom she will deliver the child in complete silence, and she will also have very little contact afterwards. A source told Closer...

    Tom Cruise and fiancée Katie Holmes have declared their love for each other in a bizarre “wedding” ceremony — on a ship. The couple exchanged rings emblazoned with triangular Scientology symbols as fellow cult members John Travolta and Kirstie Alley looked on. An insider said: “Katie wore a flowing white dress and Tom was in a black suit as they exchanged rings during the brief 30 minute ceremony. “The couple then walked across a tiny bridge — a Scientology symbol for the journey to total freedom.”
  • Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes Baby Battle: Catholicism or Scientology

    There has been plenty of speculation on the way the fabulous Katie Holmes is to give birth to her baby. The little one could come at any moment and it appears that Tom Cruise and Katie are already battling over the baby. No - they are not battling over how the baby will be born, but what happens if the pair split after the little one emerges. The rub reportedly is the baby's religion - Catholicism or Scientology? Life & Style Magazine details in this week's report that Katie is miserable and if there is a split - as that...

    TOM Cruise’s pregnant fiancée Katie Holmes will be reminded to keep her vow of silence during birth — by signs plastered around their home. The couple — following the Scientology tradition of a silent birth — had the posters delivered to their Beverly Hills mansion. The 6ft placards will be placed so Katie can see them in labour. One reads: “Be silent and make all physical movements slow and understandable.” Dawson’s Creek actress Katie, 26, must “keep mum” and will not even be allowed painkillers when she has the couple’s first child due any day. Friends — believed to be...
  • Ebonics on H&C

    Did anyone notice the ebonics correction last night on Hannity & Colmes? A black man was on to talk about how he opposed white organizations supporting black history month. He said something like "we're just givin' it to ya back." Then Hannity said "Giving it to you back? Is that what you said?" I was surprised to hear that on TV. You'd think Sharpton and Farrakhan would be in an uproar.And then at the end, the guest held up the "black power" fist, but his hand was just offscreen. Hilarious.
