    WASHINGTON - A Democratic Party rules committee has the authority to seat some delegates from Michigan and Florida but not fully restore the two states as Hillary Rodham Clinton wants, according to party lawyers. Democratic National Committee rules require that the two states lose at least half of their convention delegates for holding elections too early, the party's legal experts wrote in a 38-page memo. The memo was sent late Tuesday to the 30 members of the party's Rules and Bylaws Committee, which plans to meet Saturday at a Washington hotel. The committee is considering ways to include the two...

    Eden restoredAn ambitious plan for the restoration of wetlands in Iraq will combine the ancient way of life of the returning Marsh Arab people with pioneering green technology. Stuart Coles reports Guardian Unlimited Friday November 23 2007 The marshlands restoration project covers an area of some 40,000 square miles. Photograph: Jonathan Tait-Harris Saddam Hussein had scant regard for the largest wetlands in the Middle East, which teem with unique wildlife like the smooth-coated otter, Mesopotamian deer and Basra reed warbler. He saw them merely as a haven for hiding rebels and deserters from the Iran-Iraq War, and in the early...

    HUSAYBAH, Iraq (May 23, 2006) -- After three years without a police presence in this western Iraqi town of approximately 10,000, the community is beginning to see a fully-restored police force with the introduction of two new police stations. With a new force of fully-trained police officers, many of whom are seasoned veterans from the previous police force, Iraqis here hope the added security forces will curb insurgent activity in the area, according to tribal sheikhs. The Police Transition Team here, a team of Coalition service members responsible for training and mentoring Iraqi police officers, has worked in recent months...

    The crew at Wings and Rotors Air Museum in Murrieta think it's high time Vietnam veterans get their due. Museum volunteers and military veterans have restored two Vietnam War-vintage helicopters and are working to return an F-4 Phantom jet to the skies. Those helicopters will fly and be on display today and Sunday at the March Field Airfest at March Air Reserve Base. "The Vietnam era is not well-represented at air shows," said Shayne Meder, an Air Force veteran, who paints and restores aircraft and works at Wings and Rotors. "People see World War II airplanes and modern airplanes. But...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 27, 2006 – The efforts of the U.S. military and Iraqi security forces in Tal Afar, Iraq, have transformed the region from an insurgent hotbed to an area of life and hope with restored security, a U.S. military commander in the area said today. When the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment arrived in the region in summer 2005, Tal Afar was a support base that insurgents used to organize, train and equip terrorist cells, the unit's commander, Army Col. H.R. McMaster, said in a live news conference from Tikrit. Insurgents were drawn to the area because of its access...

    BAGHDAD (Army News Service, Jan. 23, 2006) — The people in the cities of Mahmudiyah, Lutufiyah and Yusufiyah south of Baghdad are finally getting something they have gone without for over eight years now, a working water system to provide them with clean drinking water. The water distribution system for the outlying cities of Baghdad was suffering from lack of proper and continuous maintenance, officials said. During the era of the Sadaam regime, the system was allowed to decay, forcing 300,000 residents to get their water from nearby canals, a practice they have continued until now. The Iraqi government has...

Bush's surprise visit to Baghdad in which he fed 600 soldiers the traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner at the city's airport. "Why wouldn't he come here?

    Iraq's electricity supply is finally restored to pre-war level By Jack Fairweather in Baghdad (Filed: 08/10/2003) After six months and an outlay of £80 million, Iraq's American-led administration said yesterday that it had finally restored the electricity supply to pre-war levels. The milestone is one the administration has been eager to reach after a summer of blackouts and deepening resentment among Iraqis over the time taken to restore basic services. Increasing the nation's power supply further is now at the centre of reconstruction efforts. On its success depend air conditioning and heating and revived oil and industrial production. By next...

    After 43 years of blindness, Michael May can see again. HE CAN play soccer with his sons, enjoy movies and, for the first time, gaze on the Sierra Nevada slopes he has expertly skied — sightless — since the late 1970s. But May can’t recognize his sons, Carson, 11, and Wyndham, 9, by their faces alone. The same goes for identifying Jennifer, his wife of 15 years. People “can’t fathom that,” said May, who owns a company in Davis, Calif., that makes navigational software for the blind. Three years after surgery restored sight to May’s right eye, researchers say May’s...
