  • Why do young women drink themselves to oblivion every night across Britain?

    Midnight on St Mary Street in Cardiff and everything is exactly as expected. Half a dozen young women slump in a gutter, men urinate outside a health-food shop and, as hordes stagger between nightclubs, someone lifts up a blow-up doll with a sex toy protruding out of it. The street smells of urine and lager, police struggle to break up a fight outside the Walkabout bar and a paramedic bundles a comatose girl on to a wheelchair. But it's a quiet night for 20-year-old Naomi Jenkins. She has 'only' drunk three shots of peach schnapps, cider and three shots of...

    Once Lush Sahara Dried Up Over Millennia, Study SaysJames Owen for National Geographic NewsMay 8, 2008 The grassy prehistoric Sahara turned into Earth's largest hot desert more slowly than previously thought, a new report says—and some say global warming may turn the desert green once again. The new research is based on deposits from a unique desert lake in remote northern Chad. Lake Yoa, sustained by prehistoric groundwater, has survived for millennia despite constant drought and searing heat. The body of water contains an unbroken climate record going back at least 6,000 years, said study lead author Stefan Kröpelin of...

    Rep. Patrick Kennedy (news, bio, voting record) crashed his car near the Capitol early Thursday, and a police official said he appeared intoxicated. Kennedy said he had taken sleep medication and a prescription anti-nausea drug that can cause drowsiness. Kennedy, D-R.I., addressed the issue after a spate of news reports. His initial statement said: "I consumed no alcohol prior to the incident."'Later, however, he issued a longer statement saying the attending physician for Congress had prescribed Phenergan on Tuesday to treat Kennedy's gastroenteritis.Kennedy said he returned to his Capitol Hill home on Wednesday evening after a final series of votes...

  • In the N.W: Teresa Heinz Kerry hasn't lost her outspoken way (Loose Cannon Alert)

    Seattle Post Intelligencer ^ | 3/7/05 | Joel Connelly
    What made Teresa Heinz Kerry so refreshing to some voters, and threatening to others on the 2004 campaign trail, is summed up when THK talks about her speech to last year's Democratic convention: "Nobody told me what to do," she told a Saturday fund-raiser here. The implicit afterword: Nobody better try. In her speech at the 2004 Democratic convention, Teresa Heinz Kerry said "no one will defend this nation more vigorously" than her husband, John Kerry. The sails of the philanthropist wife of Sen. John Kerry were not trimmed by November's narrow electoral defeat. The softly accented voice gives pointed...
  • TV Interview: Gerhard Schroeder in "intoxicating" form

    This is not showing up in the English-language press, so here’s my vanity: After the election Gerhard Schroeder made what the press is calling a „bizarre“ appearance on a TV talkshow. Most everyone in my office said he must have been drunk as a lord, although some surmise he may have been on “something else”. Schröder seemed to think he had won a majority and had the right to form a government. He also sharply attacked both moderators claiming that they had tried to prevent him becoming Chancellor again but had failed. He made other vague accusations of media manipulation...

    The recent slip of the lip by ole Teddy Kennedy about "waterboarding" during the confirmation hearings must have taken him back in time to Chappaquidic Creek, yeah, it was not funny...he kept a straight face. The smiles of others in the crowd told the story. On C-span airing of the National Press Club he really hit his stride in liberal rant. During the speech he advocated 'cradle to the grave' healthcare, raising the minumum wage, and other ideas to let your gov't take care of you. If the Democrats lost, it was because of (tax and spend)their philosophy - gov't...

    Democrats and Liberals have given President George W Bush hell and critcized him for being a former alcoholic and being a drunk or a coke head. Well this is about the 15th picture I have seen in about 2 weeks with either Kerry himself or Mamma T with booze of some sort and guzzling it down. But no worries...this won't be talked about. But you know for a fact if it were the Bush daughters with beer in their hands or booze of W caught drinking a n/a beer...the pictures would be everywhere and talked about endlessly. Double standards all...

    Famine and despair take over the lush garden of Africa (Filed: 12/01/2004) Peta Thornycroft, in Darwendale, traces the seizure of 90 per cent of Zimbabwe's land and the destruction of more than 4,000 businesses in the process that has left a million black farm workers and their families without jobs or homes. To anyone familiar with the formerly well-tended, red-soiled farms of Zimbabwe, the lands which once fed a nation, the sight of barren land is devastating. A few patches of short, yellowing maize, enough for a small peasant family for a few months. A couple of scraggy cattle, infested...

    U.S. Rep. Karen McCarthy revealed Saturday that she would not seek re-election to Congress next year. The five-term Kansas City Democrat, who disclosed in March that she is an alcoholic and has struggled with ethical issues and high staff turnover, said she was seeking more tranquillity. “I want to focus on balance in my public life,” she said in an interview with The Kansas City Star. “Too often, I've put my career and helping others ahead of my own needs. I made sacrifices willingly; it was what I did best.” The key now, said the 56-year-old McCarthy, is looking after...
