    In August, Duncan's visa was approved. He and Troh had rekindled their relationship, and she helped pay for his plane ticket. He packed a backpack and a suitcase, and told neighbors he was going to America and would not be back for two years. When he returned, he said, he planned to build a house for his family.

    Many Brits make it in the US - not all keep their accents By Megan Lane BBC News Magazine A cut glass English accent can fool unsuspecting Americans into detecting a "brilliance that isn't there", says Stephen Fry. So is a British accent - of any variety - the route to success in the United States? "Gee, I just love your accent." Any Brit crossing the Atlantic will have heard that line many times. Like the rest of us, Americans are rarely immune to the charms of an accent different from their own. Go on, say "shagadelic"... There's the...

    MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (Jan. 12, 2006) -- Private First Class Frank Albano, 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, was injured by shrapnel at Inchon, South Korea in 1950, just two years after enlisting in the Marine Corps. More than five decades later, the 76-year-old veteran was awarded his Purple Heart. During a Dec. 15, 2005 ceremony at Camp Horno, 55 years after being injured, Albano stood in front of Lt. Col. David J. Furness, Commanding Officer, 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment to be recognized for his sacrifices. “There were Marines with worse injures,” said the resident of Mission...

    Editor's note: Readers may also be interested in Iran: The Invisible Revolution. During the U.S. presidential campaign, debate over Iran policy received unprecedented attention. The reasons are multifold. With Iran on the verge of developing both nuclear and intercontinental ballistic missile capability, Washington policymakers can no longer ignore the Iranian threat, especially when confidants of Supreme Leader Ali Khomenei lead televised chants of "American will be annihilated," as Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati did last June. American concern over a nuclear Iran is multifold. The danger is not necessarily that Iran would conduct a nuclear first strike, although former president Ali Akbar...

    The purpose of FreeRepublic.com's multiple message boards is to limit the topics for each board to particular topics. Posting the same message on all the boards defeats the purpose of multiple-boards for special topics. It is very annoying to see the same message on every bulletin board. PLEASE!

    War to Mobilize Democracy, LLC ^ | August 27, 2004 | Dariush Shirazi
    Many on the left, most visibly Presidential contender John Kerry, often claim that the "coalition of the willing" is weak and that participation from the international community has been minimal if anything. Opponents of President Bush use such claims in order to discredit the legitimacy of this noble endeavor for freedom. It may not be such a bad idea to look at the state of our coalition, not in an effort to attack President Bush, but rather to conduct a healthy reassessment and critique of the coalition and our allies. Several weeks ago, Michael Rubin returned from the Coalition Provisional...

    netWMD - The War to Mobilize Democracy ^ | August 26, 2004 | Andrew L. Jaffee
    As Democratic hopeful John Kerry whines about the Swift Boat Veterans questioning his Vietnam “war service,” more revelations have surfaced which challenge the legitimacy of his first Purple Heart. The Senator claims that that medal was received because of enemy fire he took, but his own personal diary contradicts that assertion. While the Senator’s supporters tried unsuccessfully to portray President Bush as being “AWOL” during the Vietnam War, they won’t address the fact that Kerry tried to defer his military service at that time for 12 months. And what would Kerry and his friends say about the fact that his...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Secretary of State Kevin Shelley may have accepted $100,000 in illegal contributions in his 2002 campaign, a newspaper reported Sunday. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that a nonprofit group run by a Shelley political ally paid $108,000 from a state grant to two people and two companies who then made donations of nearly identical amounts to Shelley's 2002 campaign. The money came from a $500,000 grant to the San Francisco Neighbors Resource Center, an organization founded by Shelley ally Julie Lee. Shelley himself helped win the grant for the center in 2000, when he was Assembly...

    Bible Research > English Versions > 19th Century > Young Young's Literal Translation Publishers' Note to the Third Edition NOTWITHSTANDING the fact that the Revised Version of the Old and the New Testament has come into the field since the learned and lamented author first issued his Literal Translation of the Bible, the demand for it from year to year has continued remarkably steady. This indicates that it still fills a place of its own among helps to the earnest student of Holy Scripture. In 1887 Dr Young issued a Revised Edition, of which two impressions are exhausted. The...
