    The New International Version, the King James Version and the New King James Version continue to enjoy popularity among Bible readers, according to the Association for Christian Retail (CBA) and the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA). While the CBA and the ECPA agree on the top-selling three Bible translations for the month of September, the organizations vary on which versions of Christian Scripture rank among the remaining 7 bestsellers. According to the CBA, whose rankings are based on sales at member Christian retail stores in the U.S. through Aug. 3, 2013, the top Bible translations are: (1) New International Version;...

    Up to a million species live in the seas, and two-thirds of those ocean-dwellers may still be undiscovered, according to a new study that also cataloged all of the known species that dwell beneath the waves. The findings, published today (Nov. 15) in the journal Current Biology, suggest that the oceans remain a vast, uncharted territory. The new registry could help guide marine conservation efforts by giving scientists a universal way to describe the underwater creatures. "If you want to understand life on Earth, then of course you need to know what life there is on Earth," said the study's...

    The IDF on Tuesday broke with Israeli tradition and ordered all units to cancel the long-customary Passover leaves and remain on full alert over the holiday. Over the years, an army-wide break during Passover became a tradition followed by all major military units, including the Air Force, Navy and intelligence corps. But this year soldiers will have to divide their vacation days among themselves in order to ensure that their units remain at full strength. Senior military officials insisted the decision did not stem from any planned military operations set to occur on - or immediately after - the holiday....

The teen allegedly told school administrators that he didn't mean the threat seriously, that he was resonding in anger to harassment at school, prosecutors said.

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 24, 2006 – The road has been rough in Iraq's journey toward becoming a responsible member of the world community, but the country will reach its destination, the senior U.S. diplomat to Iraq said today. Although Iraq is now experiencing a spasm of sectarian violence, “the ultimate goals that we have for Iraq have not changed,” U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilzad told reporters in Baghdad. U.S. officials envision a “multi-ethnic, multi-sectarian democratic Iraq that will be unique in this part of the world, where traditionally the dominant ethnic or sectarian group has sought to suppress others,” Khalilzad...

    We must remain vigilant on bird flu, say experts Connie Levett Herald Correspondent in Singapore September 18, 2006 THE avian flu pandemic is still a real threat to world health and trade and should not be dismissed as a millennium-bug-type phenomenon that will never materialise, according to a United Nations health official. The H5N1 virus has been laboratory-confirmed in 55 countries and has caused 220 million bird deaths and 143 human deaths, according to the World Bank. Developed countries have committed $US1.2 billion ($1.6 billion) this year to help fight the spread of the virus. "There will be another influenza...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 12, 2006 – Five years after military recruiting hit the ceiling after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, recruiting remains solid, with every service meeting its active-duty recruiting goal for the 15th consecutive month. Recruiting and retention statistics for August, just released by the Defense Department, show the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force all meeting or exceeding both their monthly as well as year-to-date recruiting goals for the year. At the same time, retention remains solid across the board, with all services expected to meet their retention goals for the fiscal year, officials said. During August,...

    WASHINGTON, Jan 12 (Reuters) - A U.S. Army general who rhelped set up operations at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq has asserted his right not to incriminate himself in the courts-martial of two soldiers accused of mistreating detainees there, The Washington Post reported on Thursday. The move by Major Gen. Geoffrey Miller is the first time he has indicated he might have information that could implicate him in wrongdoing, the newspaper said, citing military lawyers. Invoking the right does not legally imply guilt it said. It said the action came shortly after the commanding officer at Abu Ghraib, Col. Thomas...

    A federal judge in San Jose refused Wednesday to restrain the California Teachers Association from bolstering its political campaign account by imposing an annual $60 surcharge on its members for the next three years. U.S. District Court Judge James Ware's decision in a case filed by the Virginia-based Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation probably will allow the teachers union to raise and spend upwards of $50 million to contest Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's special election initiatives slated for the Nov. 8 ballot, representatives of both sides in the lawsuit said. "This is fantastic," CTA chief counsel Beverly Tucker said.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - An HIV-positive transgender woman from Honduras can stay indefinitely in the United States because she would face physical threats and a lack of medical care if she returned to her native country, a federal judge ruled. Judge Jan D. Latimore ruled Tuesday that Cristina Gomez Ordonez should not be deported, allowing Ordonez, 34, to work in the United States and receive medical treatment. "We are happy that the judge granted withholding ... and acknowledged that our client was going to face a lot of problems if she were returned to Honduras," said Shiu-Ming Cheer of Catholic...

    LOS ANGELES - Actor Tom Sizemore was ordered Friday to remain in a live-in drug rehabilitation program until he is sentenced in September for violating his probation on drug charges, his prosecutor said. Sizemore admitted to a series of violations, including falsifying his urine tests by using a prosthetic device and failing to submit to drug testing on eight occasions, said Deputy District Attorney Sean Carney. The actor was nearly a no-show in court, arriving several hours late for Friday's hearing. His attorney, Michael Rovell, said Sizemore had been in the rehabilitation facility since July 11 and requested Thursday that...

    Some 30 youths are being held in prison until later this week, following yesterday's seven-minute blocking of the Ayalon Highway in Tel Aviv. Coincidentally, 40 taxi drivers were arrested today for blocking traffic in a work dispute - but police said they would be released if the strike is ended. Among the most controversial arrests was that of 17-year-old Y.M. of Kibbutz Shaalvim - whom the police held for five hours without informing his family. Ariel, of the Honenu organization, which provides aid to citizens under or facing political arrest, first learned of the story from the boy's friends yesterday...

    To avoid "potential harm" to eight people who have joined avowed atheist Michael Newdow in a quest to strike "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, a federal judge agreed Tuesday to allow them to remain anonymous during what is sure to be a closely-watched legal fight over highly-charged issue. Newdow, who filed the lawsuit using pseudonyms for all the plaintiffs except himself, proposed in a motion to keep anonymous the names of the parents and students in Sacramento County and San Joaquin County school districts. Attorneys for the defendants - Congress, the federal government, California, and five school districts...

    WASHINGTON - Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld's future has been in doubt amid spreading violence and U.S. deaths in Iraq (news - web sites). Whether he would remain in his job was one of the last big question marks about President Bush (news - web sites)'s second-term Cabinet. The issue was decided this week in an Oval Office meeting where Bush asked Rumsfeld to remain and the secretary accepted, a senior administration official said Friday. Rumsfeld's tenure has been marked by unanticipated postwar violence in Iraq and more than 1,250 U.S. deaths, as well as enormous increases in spending on...

    BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) - The European Union and the United States recommitted themselves to a smooth trans-Atlantic relationship Friday and hoped the second term of President Bush would no longer be marred by nasty political and trade disputes. But French President Jacques Chirac, wary of Washington's global economic and political clout, said it was imperative for Europe to boost its standing so that the world can become "multi-polar." "It is evident that Europe, now more than ever, must strengthen its unity and dynamism when faced with this great world power," Chirac said at the end of a two-day summit. "More...

    Nearly four years have elapsed since the Oslo process (1993-2000) between Israelis and Palestinians foundered in bloodshed. Over that period, two U.S. administrations have tried to forge policies that would reduce the violence and point toward a solution to the conflict.It has not been a single-minded pursuit. Since September 11, 2001, the prime focus of Washington has been the management of unprecedented U.S. military interventions in the region, which removed regimes from power in Afghanistan and Iraq. The notion of Israeli-Palestinian peace as the key to regional stability has been replaced by the war on terror and the insistence on...
