    Last month, the United Nations announced it would need nearly $1 billion to effectively fight the virus, which has killed more than 3,400 people across West Africa since March. If it is not contained, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there could be hundreds of thousands of Ebola cases in coming months. "Every day we delay, the cost and the suffering will grow exponentially," UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon said at the time. The United States and other governments have pledged tens of millions of dollars to pay for everything from medicine and protective clothing for aid workers to...

    Official UN Twitter account follows busty German porn star in X-rated videos @PBDBigBustyStar was one of only 537 people followed by @UN — until the account got busted by Eagle-eyed tweeters at Constitutionschool.com. A United Nations staffer has been so busted. The official Twitter account was mixing business with pleasure by following a busty German porn star. Penelope Black Diamond — who regularly posts X-rated videos via @PBDBigBustyStar — was revealed to be among only 537 people followed by @UN. Rubbing virtual shoulders with dignitaries and heads of states, the adult actress was placed three accounts beneath World Bank Africa...

    If Charles Dickens were writing "A Tale of Two Cities" about today's Afghanistan, his opening line would be abbreviated: "It was the worst of times." "Sunday was a particularly deadly day in Afghanistan," reported the Associated Press this week. "Roadside bombs and militant attacks killed seven American soldiers, 19 Afghan civilians and seven Afghan policemen. "Violence erupted again on Monday as militants launched suicide attacks on two police headquarters and carried out other assaults that left 20 people dead -- three policemen, an Afghan prosecutor, two children and 14 attackers, according to officials." But when are there ever peaceful stretches...

    Science: Supporters of California's failed 2004 stem-cell law will ask strapped taxpayers to support another $3 billion bond initiative in 2014. Maybe it's time to restore fiscal sanity as well as science to its rightful place. When it was passed in 2004, Proposition 71, with its $3 billion state fund and 10-year mandate for embryonic stem-cell research (ESCR), held out the promise of imminent miracle cures for everything from spinal disorders to Parkinson's. One campaign ad showed actor Christopher Reeve, aka Superman, asking California voters to "stand up for those who can't." Some six years later, with about $1.1 billion...

    Nikkan Gendai (Tokyo) translated to English by Freeper ^ | 15 December 2003 | Nikkan Gendai (translated to English by Freeper)
    Here is my quick synopsis/Japanese-to-English translation (a “Freepranslation”) of the report today from the Japanese news website, ZakZak, attached to the Nikkan Gendai publication in Tokyo. Title: "Saddam, Digs His Grave By Talking With Wife, Starts to Give Information" "--The U.S. was greatly assisted by a sophisticated “elint” (electronic eavesdropping) operation involving good cooperation by US, Australian, and British intelligence. The cooperative group was code named “Dream Team”. Of course, former officials of the regime who 'were turned' against Saddam were also instrumental and completed the picture just before the raid. --The Dream Team went ahead on the theory...

    THEY FOUND HIM IN A HOLE It’s only natural that they found him in a hole in the ground. It put him that much closer to hell. Because that is where Saddam Hussein belongs. It is where Saddam Hussein has drawn his inspiration. It is the home of the god Saddam Hussein worships. Not the Allah of Islam. But the serpent of the garden. We must never fear calling a spade a spade, or a devil a devil. And Saddam Hussein is that. He long since stopped being a man and became a partner with evil. A disciple of darkness....

    ADWAR, Iraq - When darkness fell, the Americans moved into position, 600 of them, from infantrymen to elite special forces. Their target: two houses in this rural village of orange, lemon and palm groves. Someone big was inside, they were told. But when they struck, they found nothing. Then they spotted two men running away from a small walled compound in the trees. Inside, in front of a mud-brick hut, the troops pulled back a carpet on the ground, cleared away the dirt and revealed a Styrofoam panel. Underneath, a hole led to a tiny chamber, just big enough for...
