It’s a story that talks about how the Egyptians have used humor to get through, you know, dark periods for a very, very long time and they were doing that with, you know, with the revolution,” Glenn said.

    (CNSNews.com) - Americans now believe that government and politicians are bigger problems for the country than illegal immigration, health care, disaster response or even the federal debt. In a poll released yesterday, Gallup asked Americans: “What do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?” Not surprisingly, the most common answers focused on pocket-book issues. Thirty-one percent said they believed the economy in general was the most important problem facing the country, and 22 percent said it was unemployment and jobs.

    WASHINGTON, March 5, 2007 – Traumatic brain injury, the signature wound of a conflict punctuated by daily bomb attacks on coalition forces and Iraqi civilians, is receiving increased emphasis from Defense Department leaders and the military medical community.

The drug, already prescribed to those with Type 2 diabetes, was also found to help patients return to normal blood sugar...
