    1. The Post Office Get ready to imagine a world without the Post Office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the Post Office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills. 2. The Check Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with check by 2018. It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process checks.

    The Nine Ways of Prayer of St. Dominic About the Nine Ways of PrayerThe following was written by an anonymous Bolognese author, sometime between A.D. 1260 and A.D. 1288, whose source of information was, among other followers of St. Dominic, Sister Cecilia of Bologna's Monastery of St. Agnes. Sister Cecilia had been given the habit by St. Dominic himself. "The Nine Ways of Prayer" has been sometimes printed as a supplement to "The Life of St. Dominic" by Theodoric of Apoldia, though they aren't an actual part of that work.

    It gained early success on the awards circuit, but the star-studded musical "Nine" will likely be pulled back from hundreds of smaller U.S. cities, after disappointing box office and lackluster reviews. After playing in 1,400 screens last weekend, the Weinstein Company, which is behind "Nine", said on Tuesday it expects the movie to play in 800-900 screens in big U.S. cities in coming weeks.

Fukumoto said three charcoal burners were still smoking in the car when the bodies were found, and the windows had been sealed with tape. Authorities thought the six met over the Internet before dying together in a...

    A couple and their seven children were massacred yesterday in southern Thailand, where a Muslim insurgency has killed more than 1,000 people in two years. Officials said around 30 Islamist militants surrounded a house in the village of Bo-Ngo, firing bullets and grenades before shooting those inside with handguns. The victims were Luteng Arwarebueza, 44, his wife, and their seven children, aged from one to 20. Nine other people in nearby houses were injured. The governor of Narathiwat province, Pracha Tearat, said that Mr Arwarebueza was a former rebel who quit the insurgency five months ago. He "had received constant...

    Goodbye, Kitty? If a firefighter from La Crosse gets his way, stray cats in Wisconsin could legally be blown from here to feline eternity. Not surprisingly, the proposal to allow the shooting of free-roaming cats has horrified cat lovers nationwide. "This really crosses the line in human and cat relations," said Ted O'Donnell, owner of a pet supply store in Madison. He has set up a website called dontshootthecat.com. "I remember when firefighters used to rescue cats -- not shoot them."

    Our left-leaning U. S. Supreme Court ("leaning?" It's almost all the way over) has rejected the appeal of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore to keep the Ten Commandments memorial in the Alabama Judicial Building. Was anyone surprised? Phyllis Schlafly, founder of Eagle Forum and author of Feminist Fantasies , noted that Justice Ruth Ginsburg has confessed that she and her fellow leftists on the Supreme Court are "'becoming more open to international law perspectives,' looking to United Nations treaties and foreign courts for guidance in deciding gay rights, death penalty and affirmative action cases." When the Supreme Court endorsed racial...

    A woman has sparked controversy by revealing she is trying for her ninth surrogate baby. Carole Horlock, 36, who has two children of her own, has given birth to eight surrogate children. Now she has signed a £15,000 expenses deal to produce a child for a couple living in the Home Counties. The announcement comes just 12 weeks after she gave away her eighth surrogate baby, and she says she'll "retire" only after producing her tenth. Miss Horlock, a launderette manager from Stevenage, Hertfordshire, said: "People call me rent-a-womb, which is unkind. But I do what I do for the...

    Chinese dig unearths secrets of general with nine tombsJohn Gittings Tuesday January 14, 2003The GuardianThe legend of a Chinese general who had nine tombs - so that no one would know which one he was buried in - has come alive at an archaeological site in central China. The general's mausoleum was found last year at Zaoyang, in Hubei province, where a line of mounds had long been known by locals as the "ridge of nine". Details have now been published about the opening a fortnight ago of the elaborate coffin in which he was buried at least 2,300...
  • General Ne Win -- obituary

    General Ne Win, the former president of Burma (now Myanmar), who died yesterday aged 91, ruled his country with an iron fist for 26 years, dragging it into poverty-stricken isolation.Ne Win, who seized power in a coup in 1962, was xenophobic, capricious, superstitious and fascinated by the occult “science” of numerology. Nine was his lucky number: important events were staged on dates whose numbers, when added together, made nine; and in 1987, after deciding that all banknotes should be divisible by nine, he introduced the 45-kyat and 90-kyat notes. The result was that Burmese who had hoarded 100-kyat notes lost...
