His callous criminal acts demonstrated a complete disrespect for human life and for the law. His time served in jail for their 1975...

    June 26, 1975: A date not easily forgotten by FBI Agents. On that horrible day, Special Agents Ron Williams and Jack Coler were gunned down in an open meadow on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Following the initial hail of fire from the assailants, three gunmen approached the injured Agents and finished them off at close range. Ron Williams and Jack Coler are known as Service Martyrs, a special designation reserved for Federal Agents who gave their lives while engaged in direct adversarial action. Their sacrifice is also remembered as the only two Agents in Bureau history to...

    LONDON — Nanofreeze Technologies Lund AB, a startup company that claims to have developed cooling technology that is 10 to 15 times more efficient than Peltier coolers, has won 300.000 Swedish krone (about $40,000) in a competition organized by Vinnova in conjunction with Energimyndigheten.

Nanofreeze (Lund, Sweden) was founded in September 2005 to develop research in the field of thermoelectrics originally performed at Lund University. The Vinnova competition...

    FARGO, N.D. - A judge has rejected an appeal by imprisoned American Indian activist Leonard Peltier, who argued the U.S. government had no right to try him for crimes that occurred on a South Dakota reservation. Peltier, 60, is serving a life sentence for killing two FBI agents during a 1975 standoff on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. He was convicted in 1977 and has filed numerous appeals. U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson ruled that the government has the right to prosecute and imprison anyone who kills federal agents, no matter where the crimes occur. The Pine Ridge shootout left...

    Physics students: They came up with an environmentally friendly, economical air conditioner BLUFFDALE - The code name, Space Beast, was one they came up with in the wee hours of the night. Tyler Lyon, Daniel Winegar and Chad Thornley were overtired and giddy as they tackled a science fair project. Their idea: Eliminate the use of Freon in automobile air-conditioning systems by relying on the Peltier effect - of course. "We aren't planning our lives around making air conditioners," Lyon explained. "We wanted to do something to help the environment and the economy." But what began as a Riverton High...

    RAPID CITY -- With a courtroom hanging on her every word, the former common-law wife of American Indian Movement leader Dennis Banks testified Wednesday that she and the late Anna Mae Pictou-Aquash heard Leonard Peltier brag about killing two FBI agents at Oglala in 1975. Darlene Nichols, also known as Ka-Mook Nichols, said the women were traveling with Peltier and Banks in late 1975. "He (Peltier) put his hand like this," she said, using her thumb and forefinger to imitate a gun, "and started talking about the two FBI agents." Nichols continued tearfully, "He said, 'That (expletive) was begging for...

    In June, Pacifica Radio's Los Angeles station, KPFK-FM, hosted a thirty-hour marathon of Dr. Kwaku Person-Lynn's anti-Semitic "Afrikan Mental Liberation Weekend."  It was the first time this once-annual program appeared for almost a decade. It had been banned by station management in 1993, after a long, hard-fought pressure campaign to remove it.  Afrikan Mental Liberation Weekend typically includes claims that the Jews disproportionately participated in the slave trade and persecuted blacks; in the past, he responded to criticism by calling the regional director of the Anti-Defamation League a "psychotic, idiotic, European Jew."   He has regularly played tapes by Nation of...
