    Haifa Forest Fire 'One of Israel's Worst' A forest fire near Haifa, in northern Israel, has killed at least 40 people and injured many more. Firefighters are battling the blaze while paramedics evacuate those who were injured. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached out to Italy, Cyprus and Russia for help in fighting the fire. The cause of the Israel forest fire is unknown. Damon Prison has been evacuated, but a bus carrying prison staff overturned while trying to escape. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office called it one of the worst known fires in Israel and ordered the military...

    Lindsay Lohan has been fired from Inferno, the Linda Lovelace biopic, following her numerous stints in rehab, legal troubles, and generally unreliable behavior. Writer-director Matthew Wilder has been shockingly supportive up to this point, waiting patiently while the 24-year-old former actress’ countless attempts to overcome her addictions to drugs and alcohol. A cynical person might think Wilder was using her for the free publicity, since the movie’s title made an appearance in almost every story about Lohan’s personal decline and disappearing career.

    Get ready for a firefighting vehicle that might have arrived from your old Saturday morning GI Joe cartoons. Yanko has showcased an ATV design by Liam Ferguson that can carry remotely-operated water cannons and a two-person crew into the heart of a raging blaze, and emerge unscathed. Firefighters currently rely on modified Toyota Landcruisers or other utility vehicles for doing recon on hotspots. Those work well in a pinch for navigating rough terrain, but carry only a meager water supply of 500 liters and cannot survive a burnover when flames suddenly sweep over the area. The proposed Amatoya vehicle...
  • I Voted for Obama. Will I Go Straight to. . . ? (Yes)(barf alert)

    Like most Maryland Democrats, I voted for Sen. Barack Obama in the recent Potomac Primary. By doing so, according to the leaders of my church, I put my soul at risk. That's right, says the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops -- tap the touch screen for a pro-abortion-rights candidate, and you're probably punching your ticket to Hell. For a church that "thinks in centuries," things sure are moving quickly. Back in 2004, as Washington correspondent for the independent National Catholic Reporter, I covered what Comedy Central's Jon Stewart dubbed the "wafer wars." A handful of conservative bishops warned Democratic presidential...

    Burning down a freeway is not easy. But set off enough high-octane fuel at the wrong place and even multiton supporting steel girders turn wobbly as a chocolate bar in the sun. That is what a speeding gasoline trucker managed to do before dawn Sunday to the busiest interchange in Northern California. Authorities still are piecing together how one of the 18-wheelers traversing the Bay daily crashed and erupted into a fireball that collapsed one freeway onto another at untold disruption to regional traffic. Miraculously, no one plunged into the inferno, the void it left behind or the debris below....

    ROME, FEB. 9, 2006 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI's new encyclical on love came as a surprise to most everyone. Some wags commented on the paradox of the "German Shepherd" exclaiming that God is Love. Others are amazed that the erstwhile watchdog of Church doctrine would choose to dedicate so much ink to social teachings. My surprise had nothing to do with this. I was floored when the Holy Father said he was inspired by Dante. During an audience with members of the Pontifical Council "Cor Unum" on Jan. 23, Benedict XVI introduced the new encyclical saying that the 14th-century Italian poet...

    January 31, 2006 Inferno in the Courts Smoke emanating from the court is caused by inflamed public not fire-breathing, “value-voting” zealots. By Carol Turoff The February 2006 issue of Arizona Attorney magazine features an intriguing cover story and accompanying special section titled, Fair Courts Under Fire. The cover illustration depicts a courthouse ablaze. If the intent was to inflame, then it is surely time to secure the deluge nozzle to the hydrant. Merit selection of judges is the issue. Author and flame-thrower is lawyer Ted Schmidt. In addressing what he terms “the stench of judicial campaigning,” Schmidt spends six interminable...

    Dante's Divine Comedy, the most sublime religious poem the Christian West has produced in two thousand years, provides us to this day with profound insights into human nature. In the Inferno Dante provides us with a vivid, unforgettable image of what Christians have always believed about sodomites. He places them in the seventh circle of Hell, the fiery circle of the violent, far below the lustful heterosexuals of the second circle. Why this big separation? The answer is extremely important and revealing. Dante wants us to understand that homosexuals do not suffer in life from a deficiency of the will,...

  • Foul play in Madrid skyscraper fire?

    The American Thinker ^ | Feb. 19, 2005 | Thomas Lifson
    Franco Aleman, of Barcepundit.com, provides us shocking suggestive evidence that the massive fire which destroyed a thirty-two story skyscraper in Madrid may have been the result of foul play. A videotaper caught what appears to be people with flashlights on lower floors of the building as the fire burned above. While far from conclusive evidence, this would be consistent with arsonists doing their work. The building housed the biggest accounting firm in Spain and a prestigeous law firm, so it might be a target for anti-capitalist thugs.

    Mass Deaths In Bus Inferno At least 65 people were killed in northern India when a bus carrying a wedding party hit a high voltage cable and burst into flames. A police spokesman said the disaster occurred when bicycles on the bus roof became entangled in wires hanging over the road. "The bus's roof was piled high with bicycles which snared an overhead high-tension cable and then the bus caught fire, killing 50 people on the spot," he said. A senior official said the victims were part of a wedding party on its way to the bride's home. Survivors "Some...
