    The bond between cats and their owners turns out to be far more intense than imagined, especially for cat aficionado women and their affection reciprocating felines, suggests a new study. Cats attach to humans, and particularly women, as social partners, and it's not just for the sake of obtaining food, according to the new research, which has been accepted for publication in the journal Behavioural Processes. The study is the first to show in detail that the dynamics underlying cat-human relationships are nearly identical to human-only bonds, with cats sometimes even becoming a furry "child" in nurturing homes.

    West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin doesn't expect to start searching for a successor to U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd until after the longest-serving senator in history is laid to rest next week. Manchin says he's instead focused on comforting Byrd's family and staff, and preparing the West Virginia memorial scheduled for Friday for the iconic figure who died Monday at 92 after years of frail health.

    APFN ^ | Monday, 08-Jan-01 01:21:59 | Charley Reese The difference between true education and vocational training has been cleverly blurred. Here are a few tips on how smart people can control other people. If any of this rings a bell - Well, then wake up! The first principle of people control is not to let them know you are controlling them. If people knew, this knowledge will breed resentment and possibly rebellion, which would then require brute force and terror, and old fashioned, expensive and not 100 % certain method of control. It is easier than you think to control people indirectly, to manipulate them into thinking...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 1, 2006 -- Terrorists operating in Iraq are staging attacks that garner negative press coverage so that the American people become soured on the war, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld told two radio talk show hosts yesterday. “You know, they're very good at manipulating the American press and managing the news in a way that advantages them and tries to break the will of the American people,” Rumsfeld told Bill LuMaye during a telephone interview on WPTF in Raleigh, N.C. “And they're good at it. They know what they're doing. They consciously plan their attacks to achieve...

    BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. - Democratic Sen. John Edwards (news - web sites) accused President Bush (news - web sites) and Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites) on Friday of manipulating facts and trying to frighten Americans in a desperate effort to win re-election. Drawing the wrath of the vice presidential candidate was the latest ad from the Bush campaign that suggests the country would be vulnerable to terrorists if Democratic Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) were elected president. The commercial shows a dense forest and wolves resting on a hill. The animals stir and move forward,...

    Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language." --Ludwig Wittgenstein Words are power in motion. The war over words and how they're used by our society has become the new battleground of the Left. The primary tool in their arsenal is an effort to change the conventional meanings of words used in our daily communication. The morphing of our language is now the front line of the war on our culture and a powerful means for gaining political ground for the Left. Just as many sports fans need a program to see who's who...

    In October 1995, ABC News' Sheila MacVicar filed a story from Baghdad on Iraq's presidential referendum. Iraqis generally consider it too risky to speak honestly to a reporter from American television, but MacVicar had come across a rare moment of dissent. As Iraqis lined up to cast their votes, they flashed MacVicar their ration cards, which guarantee them a supply of government-issued food. The point was clear: In exchange for their votes, officials stamped the cards. When MacVicar filed her story, she reported this small current of rebellion and called the forthcoming referendum results--99.96 percent for Saddam--a fiction. No correspondent...
