    "Duck Dynasty" will NOT go homeless if A&E decides to pull the plug ... TMZ has learned, at least two other networks are salivating at the chance to pick up the popular reality show. The owner of the popular Christian-affiliated Hunt Channel -- a guy named Merrill Sport -- tells TMZ, he'd pick up DD in a heart beat ... and would beam the show straight to its most loyal viewers: sportsmen and Christians. He says, "We believe in the 2nd amendment and freedom of speech ... A&E needs to put on their big boy pants, and if they don't...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. intelligence and law enforcement authorities are discovering new home-grown cells of Islamist radicals in the United States that draw inspiration and moral support from al Qaeda, officials said on Tuesday. Like local terrorism cells that have recently come to light in Canada and Europe, officials said the groups are comprised of disaffected young men in their teens and 20s who rely on the Internet to try to organize and plan potential attacks on the U.S. homeland. Concern about attacks inside the United States gathered pace after the arrest earlier this month in Canada of 17 men...

    CAMP FALLUJAH, Iraq (May 9, 2006) -- Duty in the turret of Regimental Combat Team 5’s seven-ton trucks just got clearer with new ballistic-glass and steel encased firing positions. The new turrets, called Marine Corps Armored Turret Systems, are being installed on seven-ton trucks, the first in an upgrade to give gunners greater visibility and beefed-up protection for convoy operations. “The advantage of these turrets is the protection it provides the gunner,” said Master Sgt. Adam Lyttle, the 42-year-old Motor Transport chief for the regiment. “The most noticeable change is the ballistic glass. They also have higher turrets and they...

    TUCSON — Apprehensions of illegal immigrants in Cochise County in March is down by more than 50 percent, according to a spokeswoman for the U.S. Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector. The reduction is about 7 percent sectorwide, Shannon Stevens said Thursday. The emphasis in the county is paying off, she said, adding the number of agents, use of unmanned aerial systems and other technology also will be used to establish operational control in the Tucson Sector’s west desert area. The West Desert Corridor is now absorbing the most illegal immigrant traffic. “We’re concentrating as many assets as we can (in the...

    MARINE CORPS RECRUITING STATION SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Jan. 17, 2006) -- Recruiters thought they were seeing double when a young man they sent to boot camp walked back into the office. It was like déjà vu at Recruiting Sub-station Round Rock (Texas) when 23-year-old Jason K. Lewis walked into the office in late October. “I saw Lewis walk in and I thought, ‘What is he doing back already?’” said Gunnery Sgt. Samuel R. Ybarra, former Staff NCOIC of RSS Round Rock. The Bertram, Texas, resident was supposed to be at his Military Occupational School learning how to be a military...
  • Seeing Constitution As Enduring, Not Living

    It's fashionable these days for folks to describe the U.S. Constitution as a "living document." Yup -- "living," as in something that breathes. Being written more than 200 years ago by a bunch of men who could never have imagined the incredible social and technological changes in America today, it's reasonable to postulate that the Constitution would have to change in order to stay viable and applicable in a modern world. Right? Wrong, says Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. The "living document" concept drives him up the proverbial marble wall. And although he concedes that it would be hard to...

    'Feminised' surgeries put men off seeing GPs By Celia Hall (Filed: 11/11/2005) Men are being put off visiting their GP because doctors' surgeries are "too female" and not open after work, according to a survey. Some of those questioned suggested men-only surgeries should be held in betting shops, pubs or golf clubs because they felt out of place when they visited their GP. They complained that surgeries were "feminised" through the decor and display material. The poll among 300 men by the Men's Health Forum, found that the commonest complaint was over opening hours. Men wanted to be able to...

    AR RAMADI, Iraq (Oct. 21, 2005) -- People join the military for many reasons.

Holland, a heavy machine gunner with Platoon Black, Combined Anti-Armor Team, Weapons Company, 3rd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, grew up in Montana and always knew that the world was a bigger place than his home state. “I always wanted to join,”...

    Flying saucers and strange beings who have visited Earth aren't the typical topics reported by Peter Jennings, anchor of ABC's "World News Tonight." Jennings, whose new two-hour special tackles the subject of UFOs, admits he and his production team began the project with doubts and a dose of curiosity. "We have a lot of skeptics -- I am very skeptical -- but we seriously investigated something a lot of people are serious about," he said. "And when we come to the end, this is wonderfully interesting. "More than 80 million Americans believe intelligent beings from somewhere else have come here,"...

  • Man’s vision gives insight on seeing - Blind for 43 years Michael May can see again.

    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...

    Crawley, England -- A pregnant 12-year-old girl has told how she decided against an abortion after seeing her baby's image during a scan. Amy Crowhurst, who is expecting a baby boy next spring, said: "I went to the hospital and we did a mini scan and a normal scan." "I saw the baby on the screen and thought 'no, it's too far gone', so me and my mum decided to keep it." Amy, of Crawley, West Sussex, England became pregnant five-and-a-half months ago after meeting a boy at a youth club. She told ITV1's Tonight With Trevor McDonald: "We both...
