    Fluoride is set to be added to drinking water throughout England and Wales despite controversy over the long-term health effects, it emerged yesterday. The law is expected to be changed so that local authorities can compel water companies to add fluoride to water. Environmentalists and consumer groups, who believe fluoridation has links to cancer, Down's syndrome and infant mortality, and can also damage bones, will be angered by the Department of Health policy. Up to half of people drinking fluoridated water also exhibit a condition known as dental fluorosis - a mottling of the teeth....

    It's been a tough week for Oracle Corp. and its lawyers. Oracle sued SAP alleging copyright infringement. A judge said the evidence didnt' support the penalty. On Thursday, the judge in a high-profile copyright case Oracle brought against rival SAP AG threw out a $1.3 billion jury verdict against the German software company. The ruling is expected to result in a new trial to set damages, unless Oracle accepts the judge's suggested figure of $272 million. The court ruling is the second bit of unwelcome news for Oracle this week. On Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. authorities...

    The Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) decided at a meeting on Friday to set up a South American Parliament in Bolivia to promote the bloc's integration. Chilean President Michele Bachelet, also the UNASUR's temporary president, and Bolivian President Evo Morales opened the meeting in Bolivia's Cochabamba province which drew representatives from 12 countries in the region. "There are many tasks that the UNASUR is urged to accomplish, as part of the Latin American and Caribbean efforts," Bachelet said. Bolivian Vice President Alvaro Garcia said that UNASUR members consider it necessary to promote the construction of the institutionalism and the...

    Climate Change: Major U.S. corporations have set up a Web site calling for a global climate treaty to be signed in Copenhagen. Considering recent evidence of massive climate fraud, perhaps they should reconsider. Many will remember the classic soft drink ad campaign where young people from many nations gather on a mountaintop and sing that they'd like to buy the world a Coke, the theory being that sharing a soda was the key to world peace. That sort of naivete has led peoples and governments around the world to accept at face value the outright fraud perpetrated by the Milli...

    LUBBOCK, Texas - Sweet sorghum is grown in the U.S. for cooking and livestock feed. But the tall plant also might help at the gas pump. A sugary sap inside the plant's stalk, which grow as tall as 12 feet, can be turned into a potent biofuel, and experts and companies are studying its potential with hopes that farmers will want to plant more of it. Ethanol made from the stalk's juice has four times the energy yield of the corn-based ethanol, which is already in the marketplace unlike sweet sorghum. Sweet sorghum produces about eight units of energy for...

    Oracle Corp accused its German rival SAP AG of hacking into its computers to heist secret product information in a lawsuit that highlights the escalating tensions between two of the world's largest business software makers. "This isn't really about protecting intellectual property," said Forrester Research analyst Ray Wang. "This is all about the art of war." The complaint, filed on Thursday in the San Francisco federal court, alleges that SAP resorted to high-tech skullduggery in a desperate attempt to maintain its leadership in business applications software -- programs that help companies manage a wide range of administrative tasks. Long the...

    Lima, Oct 18 (EFE).- Peru's Abimael Guzman, the founder of a Maoist guerrilla movement-cum-death cult that sometimes dynamited the bodies of just-murdered functionaries and hanged canines from lamposts as warnings to "capitalist dogs," also had his soft, sappy and romantically poetic side. The man known by his fanatic followers as "President Gonzalo" revealed some of his secrets in a hand-written ode dedicated to his wife, who died in 1988 under mysterious circumstances. A video seized in 1992 by the security forces, after Guzman's arrest, shows the wake of Augusta La Torre, better known as "Comrade Norah" and the Shining Path's...

    update: Software maker Oracle said Monday it will acquire rival Siebel Systems in a deal worth $5.8 billion, marking the second major competitor the company has targeted since mid-2004. Oracle executives said the mega-deal is intended as a "major beachhead" against archrival SAP, which is the world's largest business-applications seller. Siebel specializes in customer relationship management (CRM) software. Oracle said the Siebel acquisition will add 4,000 customers and 3.4 million CRM users. Oracle Chief Executive Larry Ellison said the deal was in part fueled by requests from partners and customers, such as General Electric, that wanted to hold a single...

    ABC announced Thursday it will make all of its primetime entertainment programs, including hits "Lost" and "Desperate Housewives," available in Spanish starting this season, and it is hoping to gain something big in the translation. The move is an acknowledgment of the expanding U.S. Hispanic population and its potential as a source of viewers. Previously, "George Lopez" was the only ABC series that aired in both English- and Spanish-language versions. "We wanted to move beyond toe-dipping and really dive in," ABC entertainment chief Stephen McPherson said in a statement. "Almost half of the 41 million Hispanics in this country watch...

    SAP and Microsoft announced the availability of a new portal development kit, delivering on a promise made last year to integrate their Web services-based technology platforms. The kit, with the unwieldy name Portal Development Kit for Microsoft (Profile, Products, Articles).Net within SAP (Profile, Products, Articles) NetWeaver, aims to help programmers use Microsoft's Visual Studio.Net 2003 development tools to build portal applications on SAP's NetWeaver middleware, application server, and integration platform.

But everywhere at the Fair today there were people walking around carrying 'Bush' yard signs!"I pressed him further, and he said that all folks were talking about was the 'Kerry Vietnam thing' and the Cambodia story in particular and how mad they were. He was absolutely amazed.He also said that the Democrat's booth was like a 'dead zone' and the Republican booth was swarmed to the point that he couldn't even...
