  • Who made a billion dollars on 10/1 bet that U.S. credit rating would be downgraded?

    A mystery investor or hedge fund reportedly made a bet of almost $1billion at odds of 10/1 last month that the U.S. would lose its AAA credit rating. Now questions are being asked of whether the trader had inside information before placing the $850million bet in the futures market. There are mounting rumours that investor George Soros, 80, famously known as ‘the man who broke the Bank of England’, could be involved. He made more than $1billion on currency speculation when the British pound left the Exchange Rate Mechanism on Black Wednesday in 1992.

    A Hamas website proudly reports on two young British citizens who have moved to Gaza to join the jihad against Israel. The website did not provide many details on the two. One of them, known as Ibrahim al-Majersi, is reported to have “left his home in order to the join the jihad in Gaza,” and was scheduled to deliver a lecture in the famous Large Mosque of Gaza. He apparently met with Hamas and Al-Kassam Brigades terrorists. The other, known only as Mustafa, is reported to have served in the British Army in Iraq.

    WASHINGTON – The Holocaust survivors who helped build Israel "made our world better," US Gen. David Petraeus said Thursday. "The men and women who walked or were carried out of the death camps, and their descendents, have enriched our world immeasurably in the sciences and in the arts, in literature and in philanthropy," said Petraeus, the key note speaker at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum commemoration in the Capitol Rotunda. "They have made extraordinary contributions in academia, in business, and in government. And, they have, of course, helped build a nation that stands as one of our great allies. The...

    The public-broadcasting-insider newspaper Current passed along a survey from The Chronicle of Philanthropy on executive compensation at large nonprofits in 2008. The salaries can be higher than the current presidential salary of $400,000 (and the current congressional salary of $174,000). The list includes national executives and leaders at large stations like WNET (New York), WETA (Washington), WTTW (Chicago), and KCET (Los Angeles.)
  • Humvee still made in America

    WASHINGTON (Army News Service, June 3, 2009) -- The military's High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, also known as a "HMMWV" or a "Humvee," will continue to be made in the United States, by an American-owned company. The recent announcement that Detroit-based General Motors will sell their Hummer brand of vehicles to Chinese-based Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Company, has no bearing on the U.S. military's Humvee. "The Army's Humvee and the civilian Hummer look similar and share a common appearance," said spokesman Lt. Col. Martin Downie. "But the rights to produce those two different vehicles are no longer owned by...

    A bizarre world of scorching hot ice shrouded in a steamy atmosphere may have been found, according to new observations. Characterising the Neptune-size planet is an important milestone on the way to detecting and characterising Earth-like planets that could harbour life. Astronomers have discovered more than 200 planets orbiting other stars, called extrasolar planets or exoplanets. Almost all of these were detected by the way their gravity makes their parent stars wobble. But this technique, called the radial velocity method, reveals very little about the planet except for the size of its orbit and an estimate of its mass. Transits...

    Flood made Britain into an island 'in 24 hours' By Tim Hall (Filed: 25/09/2006) Britain may have become an island after a Biblical-style flood split it from Europe in less than 24 hours, according to new geological research. The flood would have taken place between 400,000 and 200,000 years ago, sweeping away hills between Britain and what is now France. The theory could rewrite British prehistory, as current text-books teach that Britain - once a peninsula of continental Europe - split from the great land mass after a long process of erosion and rises in sea levels. However, surveys of...
  • Knives of GIs’ lives: Blades were made in crucible of war

    SIERRA VISTA — Certain knives tell stories. But, unfortunately, many of these stories remain mysteries. “Trapper Jon” Carpenter has a number of special knives made by World War II GIs, each with some kind of story behind its making. He once had a knife that was tailored for or by some soldier. It was different, Carpenter said. The handle was personal. On the butt of the handle, underneath Plexiglas, was the photo of a GI’s family, he said. “I wanted to know about that family and the person who carried it (the knife),” Carpenter said. Today, there is an increase...

    A summary of a report said to fault the way Marine Corps brass responded upon learning 24 Iraqi civilians were killed by a Camp Pendleton unit should be released this week, a military spokesman said Monday. Meanwhile, an attorney for that unit's leader said he doesn't believe there is enough evidence to file criminal charges against the men responsible for the Nov. 19 shootings in the city of Haditha. "I know too much about what happened that day (in Haditha) to think that any of these kids are going to be placed in pretrial confinement," said Kevin McDermott, an attorney...

    CHICAGO, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- As more foreign auto manufacturers open assembly plants in the U.S., the notion of "buying American" has taken on new meaning.

As expected, many traditional American manufacturers have made the top ten; however, several Toyota vehicles including the Toyota Camry, Camry Solara and the Siena also made the top ten.

    Kadima party officials told the Likud’s coalition negotiating team that Kadima plans to implement its “convergence plan” to uproot dozens of Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria by 2008. Kadima negotiators said the withdrawals would be made prior to the next U.S. presidential election in November 2008. After the meeting between the two teams which took place in Ramat Gan’s Maccabiah Olympic village, former Education Minister, MK Limor Livnat (Likud) concluded, “the chance that we’ll be joining the coalition is very, very unlikely.” Kadima negotiators also told their Likud counterparts that Kadima would oppose holding a national referendum on carrying...

The teacher, John Kelly, forced Joshua Vannoy to sit on the floor and take the test Friday _ two days before the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Broncos 34-17 in the AFC championship game. Kelly also made other students throw crumpled up paper at Vannoy, whom he called a "stinking Denver fan," Vannoy told The Associated Press on Monday. Kelly said Vannoy, a junior...

    In November Ford said it will work with Brookings, S.D.-based ethanol producer VeraSun Energy Corp. to convert more existing fuel pumps to E85. GM last week said it would lead a project in California to get the state Department of Transportation to use between 50 and 100 of its flex-fuel Impalas. Chevron Corp. plans to add ethanol pumps at some gas stations near the agency's offices.
