    **SNIP** When vulnerable Senate Democrats start running ads in which they openly declare “I worked with President Obama on the Affordable Care Act. It’s something I’m proud of,” then you’ll know public opinion on Obamacare has turned a corner. That is not happening. In Alaska, Sen. Mark Begich just released a new ad boasting how he fought “the Department of Interior, the EPA, NOAA, national Democrats and the White House” to allow oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean. Riding a snow machine across the frozen tundra, Begich stops, takes off his helmet and declares “I’m Mark Begich — I fought...

This new substance, which also has other innocuous names such as Monkey Dust, White Ivory or Kryptonite, is a synthetic drug that has seen an increase in use in Bangor and northern Maine since late last year.

After weeks of guessing who would play the Man of Steel's leading lady in the upcoming "Superman" reboot, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, along with director Zack Snyder announced on Sunday (March 27) that Academy Award-nominated actress Amy Adams will take on the iconic role. Snyder, whose latest endeavor, "Sucker Punch," opened in second place at the box office this weekend, said in a statement, "Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about. So we are excited to announce the...

    A pale green interloper among the stars of Cassiopeia, Comet Hartley 2 glows like an escapee from Krypton at the center of this exposure taken on the night of Sept. 28, 2010, by NASA astronomer Bill Cooke. Still too faint to be seen with the unaided eye, the comet was 18 million miles away from Earth at the time. Cooke took this image using a telescope located near Mayhill, N.M., which he controlled via the Internet from his home computer. "Before mid-October, Northern Hemisphere observers will be able to see the comet nearly all night long in the northeast," Cook...

    President Obama kicks off what might be called his "Save the Senate" tour this week, heading west to campaign for two embattled Democrats trailing badly against Republican challengers - including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. With high-profile Democrats already bailing out of re-election campaigns - Sen. Evan Bayh's decision on Monday to drop out of the race in Indiana brings the number of retirees to five - Mr. Obama is putting his popularity and fundraising prowess on the line as he tries to help his party hold the majority in the Senate. Local Republicans are salivating at the...

    Developing Kryptonite For Superbug ScienceDaily (Nov. 11, 2007) University of Idaho researchers are crossing academic and geographical bounds to develop more effective defenses against Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and other deadly pathogens. One of the goals of that effort is to create much faster and more accurate identification of strains resistant to the antibiotic methicillin, formally known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. Breakthrough detection technologies are already in hand in University of Idaho labs. Nanoelectronic biosensors at the universitys Center for Advanced Microelectronics and Biomolecular Research (CAMBR) recently have cut detection time for staph from the industry standard of...

    Very definitely not green Kryptonite is no longer just the stuff of fiction feared by caped superheroes.A new mineral matching its unique chemistry - as described in the film Superman Returns - has been identified in a mine in Serbia. According to movie and comic-book storylines, kryptonite is supposed to sap Superman's powers whenever he is exposed to its large green crystals. The real mineral is white and harmless, says Dr Chris Stanley, a mineralogist at London's Natural History Museum. "I'm afraid it's not green and it doesn't glow either - although it will react to ultraviolet light by...

  • Recall for Kryptonite brand locks (how to get yours)

    As some of you may have heard, a problem regarding cylinder-type locks has been revealed. They can be unlocked simply by jamming a bic-style pen into it. Kryptonite is issuing a voluntary recall and will replace all tubular cylinder-locks with non-tubular cylinder locks. Here is a link to a site that mentions the problem, including a video. Although they said that they are changing to a different brand of locks, I read other sources that say that this is a problem with several brands of locks too. Excerpt... ...If you currently own a Kryptonite tubular cylinder lock and are...

    Saturday, November 15, 2003 Clark Kent: Superticket for America? By DEENA WINTER, Bismarck Tribune Did you hear General Wesley Clark wants Kent Conrad to be his running mate? They're going to call it the Clark Kent ticket. Ba-dum-bump. It's a joke. There's no evidence the Democratic presidential candidate is considering asking Conrad to run with him, but that hasn't stopped a few members of the Washington press corps from calling Conrad's office to make sure. "We've certainly gotten queries about it," Conrad said. "I think it was intended to be a humorous reference." He thinks, but he's not sure? "I...
