    A South African mugger was mauled to death by tigers after he fled the scene of his crime and took refuge in what turned out to be a tiger enclosure at a nearby zoo, police said. The incident took place on Sunday in Bloemfontein, about 400 kilometres south-west of Johannesburg. "The guy who was found in the tiger enclosure had been trying to escape after he had robbed a couple with a knife early on Sunday morning," said police spokesman Sam Makhele. "There were security guards nearby and they gave chase to this man and he jumped the fence into...

    LOS ANGELES - Michael Jackson faces a crushing $270 million foreclosure in two weeks that could mean he loses his Neverland Ranch and Sony Beatles music catalog, the Daily News has learned.

    An Aids crisis is threatening to overwhelm many predominantly Muslim countries but their leaders remain in a state of denial and are doing little to stem the deadly problem, a pioneering study says. In one of the most comprehensive reports on Aids covering the Muslim world, experts warned of serious repercussions if governments continued to sweep the problem under the carpet. A report released by the Seattle-based think tank, the National Bureau of Asian Research, says "if leaders continue to ignore the problem, Aids could debilitate or even destabilise some of these societies by killing large numbers of people in...

    The Sacramento District Attorney office announced today that no charges will be filed in the death of San Ramon resident Mark Leidheisl, who died after a fight outside the Arco Arena last month. The DA's office determined Leidheisl was the aggressor in the fight and the two men who fought against him -- Jeffrey Berndt of Victor and Donnie Garibaldi of Lodi -- were acting in self-defense. In a report issued today, the DA's office said that at one point Berndt punched Leidheisl's face to help, because he thought Garibaldi was losing the fight against Leidheisl. The punch caused Leidheisl...

    Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy is a fairly accomplished jurist, but he might want to get himself a good lawyer -- and perhaps a few more bodyguards. Conservative leaders meeting in Washington yesterday for a discussion of "Remedies to Judicial Tyranny" decided that Kennedy, a Ronald Reagan appointee, should be impeached, or worse. Phyllis Schlafly, doyenne of American conservatism, said Kennedy's opinion forbidding capital punishment for juveniles "is a good ground of impeachment." To cheers and applause from those gathered at a downtown Marriott for a conference on "Confronting the Judicial War on Faith," Schlafly said that Kennedy had...

The men inside the Saturn, both in their 20s, were killed instantly. Neither man was wearing a seat belt, police reports show.

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - A suicide attacker tried to drive his bomb-laden car into the Interior Ministry complex, and militants set off another bomb and exchanged fire with police late Wednesday in Riyadh, capital of a kingdom at war with Muslim extremists. The first explosion at about 8:35 p.m. shattered windows and sent smoke and flames rising into the nighttime sky near the ministry in central Riyadh. Police officials said a suicide car bomber had tried to storm the ministry, but failed and instead exploded his car just outside. A number of policemen were injured, a ministry official said,...

    PHILADELPHIA (Dec. 20, 2004) -- Philadelphia Eagles star receiver Terrell Owens will miss the rest of the regular season and possibly the playoffs and Super Bowl with torn ligaments in his right ankle. Owens needs surgery and stands only an outside chance of being able to play in the Super Bowl on Feb. 6 if the Eagles make it that far, head trainer Rick Burkholder said. Owens was hurt on the second play of the third quarter of Philadelphia's win over Dallas on Dec. 19 when he was dragged down from behind by Roy Williams on a 20-yard reception. Owens...

    Brahman, Atman, Karma and GunasThe breadth of Hindu religion accommodates a large variety of religious concepts. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan called it 'Hindu hospitality'. As a result we see varied forms of practice of Hinduism. From the surface it may even appear like different religions with no common thread or goal. Shankaracharya (788-820 C.E.) was responsible for the 'synthesis' of Hindu religion. But for the effort of Shankara, the chaotic and disorganized practices of many factions of Hinduism probably would have resulted in many splintered groups of religions. Shankara brilliantly unified the different practices into one religion that we call Hinduism...

The class action announced yesterday alleges that black employees at Radianz ­ a US-based internet services subsidiary of Reuters ­ were forced to work in "an outrageous, patently offensive environment". One black employee was repeatedly referred to as "my nigger" by a white supervisor and was sent racially offensive emails, the action alleges.

    Buddhists really are happy, calm and serene people -- at least according to their brain scans. Using new scanning techniques, neuroscientists have discovered that certain areas of the brain light up constantly in Buddhists, which indicates positive emotions and good mood. This happens at times even when they are not meditating. "We can now hypothesize with some confidence that those apparently happy, calm Buddhist souls one regularly comes across in places such as Dharamsala, India, really are happy," said Prof. Owen Flanagan of Duke University, in a report in New Scientist magazine. Dharamsala is the home base of exiled Tibetan...

So does his long-term partner, Susan Sarandon, as well as Janeane Garafolo, Martin Sheen, The Dixie Chicks, Mike Farrell, Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Harry Belafonte, Ed Asner, Danny Glover, Chrissie Hynde, and other ''anti-war'' celebrities. They only love free speech when they are using it to bash the military, President Bush, and America, both in our own media and overseas. However, when the American consumer, offended by their blame-America first rhetoric, reacts with petitions and boycotts, the words ''blacklist,'' ''undermining free speech'' and ''suppressing dissent'' are used by these celebrities. Hollywood is scared, because...
