    Shortly after the HHS report was released, the leader of the state's health insurance exchange issued a response. "Unfortunately, this is not surprising, given that CT currently has the 4th highest medical costs in the U.S., underscoring how various marketplace variables impact premium rates," said Kevin Counihan, Access Health CT president and chief executive officer. "Additionally, CT has a substantial number of mandated benefits when compared to other states, as well as broad provider network requirements, both of which tend to drive higher premiums. We look forward to being part of the dialogue to address these important issues moving forward...

    "Don't fly." That's Janet Napolitano's answer to those who oppose the regime of poke and grope that is today's Transportation Safety Agency. America is, after all, a land of choices. When you arrive at the airport, you can allow some complete stranger to irradiate you with a device that allows the operator to see you naked. Or you can allow some friendly security agent to put hands in places where they have no business. Or you can drive. Before you jump out of line and into your car, however, be warned that you can be fined up to $11,000 for...

    A Grammy Award-winning rock band has canceled their upcoming concert in Arizona to protest the state's new immigration law. Los Lobos decided to cancel their performance scheduled for June 10 at Scottsdale's Talking Stick Resort to boycott the new law. A representative from the band's booking agent confirmed the decision Thursday. The band released a written statement saying they feel the law will "inevitably lead to unfair racial profiling and possible abuse of people who just happen to look Latino." Los Lobos says they regret the inconvenience it may have caused their fans and the organizers of the event, but...

    For decades, God has lavished his followers with linguistic grace regarding what could be considered an epidemic in the prayer world – the use of the word "just." Usually found in a pattern similar to "God, please just [insert petition] and just [insert another petition]," the word "just" has made answering prayers a confusing and tedious process for the Almighty. In response, God declared earlier this month that Christians everywhere may no longer use the word "just" during intercessory prayer, effective immediately.

    WASHINGTON - Can technology identify someone thinking about committing a terrorist attack? The Department of Homeland Security is exploring that possibility. Last month, it queried researchers about designing a system that would detect deceptive behavior by flagging physiological and behavioral cues such as heartbeat, respiration and facial expression, using thermal imaging, infrared cameras and audio and eye-tracking, among other techniques. A related program, Project Hostile Intent, is exploring the use of involuntary facial and speech signals captured on video to identify people "involved in possible malicious or deceitful acts" - before they ever commit the crime.

    5/1/2006 - NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. (AFPN) -- In the wake of the attacks that took place on Sept. 11, 2001, the Department of Defense implemented new initiatives to thwart future attacks on U.S. soil. These measures were called “threat conditions.” It wasn’t until 2004 that the Defense Department revamped threatcon procedures into what are now known as Force Protection Conditions, or FPCONs. The old threat conditions were just not specific enough, said an anti-terrorism official. “We needed these new measures to not only prevent attacks from foreign terrorists, but domestic ones as well. “These might not be the...

But our prehistoric cousins were in reality just as smart as we are and did not die out as a result of a lack of brain power, according to a new archaeological study. Until now, the leading theory of why the Neanderthals disappeared has been that a lack of intelligence meant they were less efficient hunters. But a team of US archaeologists believe they met their evolutionary end because of a failure to maintain social...

In fact, I went 20-30 feet into North Korean territory, inside a United Nations' conference hut that stands exactly on the demarcation line or border between the Koreas. I toured checkpoints and even an infiltration tunnel that the North Koreans built to get their troops into the south in the event they decided to invade.

    "The creation of the United States of America is the central event of the past four hundred years." Thus does Walter A. McDougall of the University of Pennsylvania begin the first volume of his acclaimed new American history, Freedom Just Around the Corner (HarperCollins).Not surprisingly, this central event has evoked a wide range of opinions. Tens of millions of immigrants have voted with their feet to slough off prior allegiances and join the boisterous experiment that makes "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" its official goal.The result has been an astounding success. "We dominate every field of human endeavor...

    ROCHESTER, NY--According to the Democrat & Chronicle (which cannot be reposted here thanks to the cretins at Gannett news), "Former nurse's aide John Horace, imprisoned for raping and impregnating a comatose woman, claimed to the state Parole Board that he committed his crime because he thought a pregnancy could jolt the woman from her coma."The paper notes that the woman gave birth to a son in March 1996, and died in March 1997 of natural causes unconnected to the rape. She'd been comatose for more than a decade from injuries suffered in a car accident, the paper reported.According to the...

    When the World Health Organization (WHO) released its proposed "global strategy on diet, physical activity and health" calling for "fat taxes," the Bush administration noticed something conspicuously missing from the report -- any notion of personal responsibility. Thankfully, the former Director of Communications for WHO's European Office, Franklin Apfel, provides insight into this obvious omission. He recently told a conference in Dublin (as reported in The Irish Times): [W]e are all influenced by 'hazard merchants' selling us a false view of things like tobacco, alcohol and high density foodstuffs -- we're given the impression that these things represent personal choice,...

    WASHINGTON - The White House and Pentagon (news - web sites) on Monday dismissed allegations that Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide was kidnapped by U.S. forces eager for him to resign and flee into exile. With U.S. military forces already on the ground in the Caribbean nation and more on the way, chief presidential spokesman Scott McClellan said, "It's nonsense, and conspiracy theories do nothing to help the Haitian people move forward to a better more free, more prosperous future." Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld also vehemently denied that Aristide had been forced out by the United States, and Secretary of...

    By OREN DORELL, Staff Writer A Raleigh man was arrested twice Friday morning on charges of drunken driving -- once after an accident and again three hours later after returning to his car and driving it away from where it was parked. "It was absolutely terrible," Sougata Mukherjee , editor of the Triangle Business Journal, said Friday afternoon, summing up a night that began at Sullivan's Steakhouse on Glenwood Avenue. "This is the first time something like this has happened to me." Mukherjee's first arrest occurred after his 2001 Nissan Pathfinder rear-ended a 2001 Saab driven by Winston Cavin, a...

    Testifying before Congress in April, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy tried to explain why it's important for judges to have discretion in sentencing. He cited the case of "a young man raising marijuana in the woods. That makes him a distributor. He's got his dad's hunting rifle in the car -- he forgot about it and wanted to do target practice. That makes him armed. He's looking at 15 years. An 18-year-old doesn't know how long 15 years is." Members of Congress apparently did not grasp Kennedy's point. The next day, almost all of them voted to impose new restrictions...

    Whether WMDs are found or not, the allies need offer no apologies for liberating Iraq The war in Iraq is over. But the war of words over its justness is still going strong. Two thousand U.S. Special Forces are currently searching the country for hidden weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). To date, their largest catch consists of two mobile laboratories whose design lends itself to the production of biological weapons. But compared to the massive stores of WMDs U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair suggested Saddam Hussein might be hiding -- including 26,000 litres of...

    NEW YORK - Bill Clinton thinks Bono is a leader "we should follow in the new millennium."   The former president praised the lead singer of U2 Friday at a celebrity-packed reception honoring Bono's charitable work, most notably his efforts at promoting awareness of the AIDS (news - web sites) epidemic and famine in Africa. Clinton credited the rock star with helping close partisan gaps and getting Congress to pass a bill to provide debt relief for Africa. "He did something I couldn't do: He convinced Jesse Helms (former Republican senator from North Carolina) to be for it," Clinton said,...
