  • [Catholic Caucus] Feast of the Most Holy Rosary (Gueranger)

    White Double of the Second Class IT is customary with men of the world to balance their accounts at the end of the year, and ascertain their profits. The Church is now preparing to do the same. We shall soon see her solemnly numbering her elect, taking an inventory of their holy relics, visiting the tombs of those who sleep in the Lord, and counting the sanctuaries, both old and new, that have been consecrated to her divine Spouse. But today’s reckoning is a more solemn one, the profits more considerable: she opens her balance sheet with the gain...
  • The most murderous mammal is probably not what you think it is

    Ape shall never kill ape. The primate society in the 1973 film “Battle for the Planet of the Apes,” the fifth installment in the Planet of the Apes franchise, was governed by this central rule. It was a pleasant sentiment even when chanted from beneath a rubber mask. But such niceties never seem to last, particularly not in post-apocalyptic fiction. We hate to rock Dr. Zaius‘s world, but that rule does not exist in real-life mammal societies, either. As a new study published in the journal Nature demonstrated, not only does ape kill ape, but the mammalian world is full...

    Croatia's opposition conservatives have declared victory in parliamentary elections, but face a challenge to form a government. Partial results show the HDZ is to win about 60 seats, with more than 50 for the ruling alliance led by the Social Democrats. The conservatives are now expected to enter talks to form a coalition. The migration crisis was one of the main issues. More than 320,000 migrants have passed through Croatia this year. "The victory brought us responsibility to lead our country, which is in a difficult situation," HDZ leader Tomislav Karamarko told supporters. "Whoever wants to fight with us for...

    Scientists Map 5,000 New Ocean Viruses In the few decades since viruses were first found in the oceans, scientists have only been able to identify a handful of species. A new survey has uncovered nearly all the rest. Photographs by Jennifer Brum, Tucson Marine Phage LabA few of the more than 5,000 viruses discovered during the Tara Oceans Expedition.

    SIERRA VISTA — Pelted by the remnants of not one, but two tropical storms in September, Cochise County ended a wet summer with gusto, making it a banner monsoon for rainfall totals. After receiving just over an inch of rain from moisture tied to Tropical Storm Norbert, Sierra Vista saw more than 3 inches within a day when the remnants of Tropical Storm Odile took a beeline through Cochise County. These deluges helped nudge Sierra Vista’s monsoon total to 15.09 inches, as measured at the fire station on Fry Boulevard, making it the wettest monsoon in the National Weather Service...

  • Most Albertson's In Central Fla. To Close

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- A Central Florida supermarket chain is about to close almost all of its local stores. It's part of a move by Albertson's to end the majority of its operations in the state. For the last year or so, Albertson's has been shrinking the number of stores it operates in Florida. In Central Florida, six more stores are going to close in the next few weeks. Only a store in Altamonte Springs will remain open. Albertson's says the Florida market is not good for it, and with fuel and utility costs being what they are, it's closing all...

    Covering a possible 2012 presidential run by Michele Bachmann, Good Morning America's Juju Chang on Thursday spun the Congresswoman as "one of the most controversial freshmen [sic] members of Congress." Aside from the obvious error, Bachmann has been a representative for four years, GMA never identified hard-left former Congressman Alan Grayson that way. Reporter Jonathan Karl singled out Bachmann as "uncompromising" and "as conservative as they come." This type of labeling isn't uncommon for the journalist. On August 24, 2010, Karl hit Republican senatorial candidate Joe Miller as a "hard-line, Tea Party conservative." On September 22, 2010, he deemed Christine...

    President Obama intends to meet with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Thursday, a White House official told, after criticism mounted over the president's refusal to meet her while she is in Washington this week. Brewer had requested a face-to-face meeting with Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the former Arizona governor, as tensions rise between his administration and the Grand Canyon State over its controversial law clamping down on illegal immigrants. White House spokesman Adam Abrams had said over the weekend that Obama's schedule "doesn't allow for a meeting" with Brewer but added that the president "does intend...

    The illegal alien aunt of President Obama could learn this week whether she can put down roots in Boston - or start packing her bags for a one-way trip back to Kenya. And, save for U.S. Immigration Court Judge Leonard I. Shapiro, she’ll know before anyone else. Zeituni Polly Onyango has persuaded Shapiro to bar the public from her removal proceeding Thursday morning at the John F. Kennedy Federal Building, though it’s unclear why.

    The H1N1 vaccine will arrive too late to help most Americans who will be infected during this flu season, according to a study conducted by scholars at Purdue University, The Washington Times reported on Tuesday. The study also estimates that the virus — commonly referred to as the swine flu bug — will infect about 60 percent of the U.S. population, although only about 25 percent of Americans will fall ill.

The event was announced Friday afternoon as Obama battles to bolster congressional support for an ambitious health-care overhaul while facing dropping approval ratings.
