    Food Running Low Aboard Space Station Published Thursday, December 9, 2004 By MARCIA DUNN AP Aerospace Writer CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. Food is running so low aboard the international space station that the two crewmen have been instructed to cut back on calories, at least until a Russian supply ship arrives in a little over two weeks, NASA said Thursday. If anything goes wrong with the Christmas Day delivery, the space agency will have no choice, given the grounding of its shuttle fleet, but to abandon the station and bring the men home in early January. This cargo ship "is very...

    Insurgents still holding out in Fallujah are running low on ammunition and many of them are seriously wounded, Al-Arabiya television reported from the outskirts of the city. The report, filmed in two segments in different locations, included a brief interview with one Iraqi fighter. He said there were only about 100 foreign fighters in the city and the rest of those resisting the Americans were Iraqis. "They say that they have run out of ammunition and that many of those who stayed inside are seriously wounded," Al-Arabiya correspondent Wail Essam said in his report yesterday. The correspondent added that many...

    PARIS (Reuters) - When a Muslim radical murdered the Dutch director Theo van Gogh for a film criticising Islam, Christoph Luxenberg saw his name ripple through Internet forums 1,000 times and immediately knew why. "The safety of experts on Islam is topical again," he said -- in a surprisingly detached tone for the author of a critique of the Koran who fears it could one day spark similar anger. Van Gogh, murdered last week for a film slamming Muslim treatment of women, set out to be provocative. But such is the apprehension among critics of Islam that even an obscure...

  • LA Slimes Headline - Karl Rove: America's Mullah, Ayatollah in the White House

    [Gabler's tripe not posted] I can't believe this utter tripe wasn't posted. The LA Slimes hit a new low with this Sunday Op-Ed piece "gracing" the front page of the Opinion section. The headline is Rove is America's Mullah. And the inside header is "The Ayatollah in the White House". This is either 1) calling Roosevelt's top political coordinator a Nazi in the 1944 election -- the Mullahs, such as Omar or those from Iran are universally recognized as the worst of the worst today. 2)If this extreme term isn't meant, then what is it? Is the LA Times smearing...

    From Hugh Hewitt: I interviewed Matthew Dowd today (and that transcript will follow as well.). His key point: There are three signs of a collapsing campaign. First, the candidate who is falling like a rock challenges his opponent to weekly debates. Second, the candidate who is sinking shuffles his senior staff. Third, the candidate who is the walking dead says that the only poll that counts is the poll on election day. Dowd pointed out that Kerry has already scored two of the three. Heh. Yep, were seeing it happen right before our eyes. With 53% approval ratings this will...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. soldiers in Iraq (news - web sites) were plagued by low morale, experienced spikes in suicides last July and November and lacked access to some medications sought by military mental-health specialists to treat emotional problems, Army experts reported on Thursday. A 12-person Army Mental Health Advisory Team issued a 38-page report on issues faced by U.S. soldiers in Iraq, including suicide, combat stress and the availability of help from the Army. The team traveled to Iraq from August to October 2003 and interviewed almost 760 soldiers. The report found a "significant proportion" of soldiers "experienced and...
  • FCC Chief Calls Super Bowl Show 'New Low'

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Janet Jackson's Super Bowl exposure was "a new low for prime-time television," the government's chief broadcast regulator told lawmakers Wednesday. The Super Bowl halftime show featured a duet by Jackson and Justin Timberlake that ended with Timberlake tearing off part of Jackson's top and exposing her right breast to 90 million TV viewers. The singers said the incident was an accident and have apologized, but it has fueled calls for the government to pay more attention to what goes out on the nation's airwaves. The Federal Communications Commission has received more than 200,000 complaints about the halftime...

    As the dollar falls to an 11-year low, Britons pound streets of Manhattan and go shopping until they drop By David Usborne in New York 17 December 2003 It seems like a fair question, but Chris Haxby has got a 'you've-got-to-be-joking' look on his face. No, he and his girlfriend, Londie McKay, definitely do not have a budget limit for their five days in New York. "There wouldn't be any point, would there?" he says. "Especially not in a place like this." Shopping Heaven is what he means. This Christmas, swarms of British tourists are descending on Manhattan. Some will...

    Half of soldiers quit Iraqi army over poor pay By Andrew Buncombe in Washington 12 December 2003 America's efforts to bring calm to Iraq have suffered a setback because almost half the recruits for the Iraqi army have quit, complaining of poor pay and working conditions. An official with the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) said yesterday that approximately 300 members out of around 700, who made up the first battalion of the newly formed force, had left. "Their complaint appears to have been about terms and conditions and salary. We will look at these [and] review the terms and...

    High and low tides put bounce into Britain By Roger Highfield, Science Editor (Filed: 29/11/2003) Parts of Britain "bounce" by four inches twice a day and the most wobbly counties are Devon and Cornwall, says a survey. The movement is caused as tides ebb and flow twice daily, according to the survey made using GPS (global positioning system) satellites, revealing tiny movements of the ground down to a few millimetres. The nationwide survey, by a team from the Ordnance Survey, Newcastle University and the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory, Birkenhead, shows that the deformation of Earth's crust varies across the country.
