    More than 15 percent of the latest batch of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails released Saturday contain classified information, with three of the messages being labeled “secret” — continuing to add to the questions surrounding her email use. One of the messages is an extensive missive from David Satterfield, a top U.S. diplomat to Egypt, who told top officials in both the White House and State Department about negotiations in the Sinai. The entire contents of the messages are now deemed “secret,” though there is no indication they were marked as such at the time. The message was...

    NASA explains: In this NASA Hubble Space Telescope image taken on October 9, the comets solid nucleus is unresolved because it is so small. If the nucleus broke apart then Hubble would have likely seen evidence for multiple fragments. Moreover, the coma or head surrounding the comets nucleus is symmetric and smooth. This would probably not be the case if clusters of smaller fragments were flying along. Whats more, a polar jet of dust first seen in Hubble images taken in April is no longer visible and may have turned off. So, its not disintegrating, its not a three-piece body,...

    Another month, another White House catchphrase. Pass this bill looks to have been retired by White House message-makers. The heyday for President Obamas three-word exhortation came in September, after he put forward his $447-billion jobs plan. Speech after speech, Obama commanded lawmakers to pass this bill. Day after day, Congress refused. With the impasse in its seventh week, the White House is trying a different approach, encapsulated in a new three-word slogan that is part plea, part battle cry. We cant wait.
  • Obama's Latest Stimulus: Handing Out Jobless Benefits To Striking Workers

    Zero Hedge ^ | 8/25/11 | Tyler Durden
    One of the oddities that seemed out of whack in this morning's weekly Unemployment Claims update was the explanation for the spike in this week's receipents of government generosity: apparently it had to do with the BLS handing out weekly benefits checks to striking Verizon workers. We will repeat the key word from that sentence because it bears repeating: "striking." Now, we may be wrong here, but if one is striking, one is not u-n-e-m-p-l-o-y-e-d, and hence the US government should probably not be using taxpayer money to double pay such individuals who have singlehandedly decided to forgo pay in...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The price of gold hit its latest record high, near $1,830 an ounce, as investors spooked by the prospect of a return to recession sought out safety Thursday in the precious metal. Gold prices have more than doubled since the recession began in late 2007. They've risen about 19 percent since the beginning of June, as European leaders struggled to keep the debt crisis from infecting the region's major economies and U.S. politicians nearly drove the country to the brink of default, prompting Standard & Poor's to cut the country's AAA credit rating.

    Packing foam now entering the marketplace is engineered from mushrooms and agricultural wasteA new packing material that grows itself is now appearing in shipped products across the country. The composite of inedible agricultural waste and mushroom roots is called Mycobond, and its manufacture requires just one eighth the energy and one tenth the carbon dioxide of traditional foam packing material. And unlike most foam substitutes, when no longer useful, it makes great compost in the garden. The technology was the brainchild of two former Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute undergraduates, Gavin McIntyre and Eben Bayer, who founded Ecovative Design of Green Island,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Treasury Department said Monday it will lose $1.6 billion on a loan made to Chrysler in early 2009. Taxpayer losses from bailing out Chrysler and General Motors are expected to rise as high as $34 billion, congressional auditors have said. Treasury said Monday that Chrysler repaid $1.9 billion of a $4 billion loan, which was extended before the company filed for Chapter 11. The government hopes to get another $500 million from the company that emerged from bankruptcy, Chrysler Group LLC. Treasury officials said that the government had no plans to boost its stake in the...

    Japan's latest weapon against terror. . . a fish By Colin Joyce in Tokyo (Filed: 25/07/2006) Japan is to use tiny fish in the battle against terrorism. Ricefish, measuring less than two inches and commonly kept as pets, react rapidly to contaminated water. The fish, which is pale orange, pushes its face close to the surface when it experiences breathing difficulties or simply dies in the manner of canaries in gas-filled mines. Whereas sophisticated and expensive filters may take up to 15 hours to detect a problem, ricefish typically react to contamination within a couple of hours. So far, they...

    LONDON: Crude oil traded above US$74 (US$1 = RM3.61) a barrel before a United Nations hearing on Iran's nuclear programme, amid concern oil supplies will be disrupted from the country. The US, UK and France will ask for the United Nations to demand that Iran halt its uranium enrichment programme. Iran is the world's fourth-largest oil supplier. Iranian authorities "would have their own embargo; they wouldn't send their oil to certain countries," said Deborah White, an analyst with Societe Generale SA. "To cut oil exports will certainly not be their first choice. They need the money." Crude oil for June...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 /U.S. Newswire/ -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today in response to President Bush's speech on Iraq at the Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington: "I am pleased that Iraq appears to be moving towards democracy, as indicated by tomorrow's upcoming election. However, democracy is not the reason that President Bush gave for invading Iraq more than 1,000 days ago. President Bush asserted that Saddam Hussein presented an imminent threat to the security of the United States, a threat that could only be reduced by going to war. The president was wrong.

    ROSELAND -- Battles over zoning and permits appear to be a common problem lately in the small town of Roseland. But residents now have a complaint that's not just about small town ordinances. It's about the nation's Constitution and its First Amendment, freedom of speech. This week, some residents have pitched signs in their yards, urging the two married members of the three-person Town Council, David and Dorothy Snyder, to resign. In return, residents have received warnings or tickets from the town, telling them they are breaking the law. "We don't have freedom of speech. We can't say what we...
