    The cooling was predicted at least two years ago by Russian scientist Habibullo Abdussamatov, supervisor of the Astrometria project on the International Space Station and head of space research at the Pulkovo Observatory, St Petersburg. Abdussamatov has predicted that this year will mark the start of a downward trend into a mini ice age, with its nadir in 2055. The cold period would be the fifth mini ice-age to occur in a millennium, suggesting that the climate is following a well-worn natural pattern.

    ATLANTA (Reuters) - A rare November snowfall powdered parts of the U.S. Southeast late Monday and early Tuesday, with as much as eight inches falling on one Arkansas town and some schools closed in Tennessee. Snowfall extended through the mid-Mississippi and Tennessee valleys and as far south as Haleyville, Alabama, said AccuWeather.com meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. Parts of Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi reported between one and three inches of snow, and more flurries were forecast on Tuesday. "It was a surprise to see it this early." said Lesley Hobbs, membership director for the Chamber of Commerce in Paragould,...

    Winn-Dixie Stores Inc. on Tuesday announced it will close 30 of its 514 stores, and cut 120 jobs in its corporate and field support staffs as it deals with a continued weak economy. The Jacksonville-based supermarket chain wouldn't say which stores are closing until company officials can inform the employees involved, which should happen by the end of Wednesday. The stores being closed "can't operate efficiently or profitably" in this economy, CEO Peter Lynch said. "We just don't see a lot of good things down the road," he said. "These steps are being taken to position the company for another...

    Attention will then turn to the Southwestern U.S. where another storm system will move ashore associated with the subtropical jetstream. This system will spread more rains and mountain snows to the western U.S. from Canada into the desert Southwest on Tuesday and Wednesday. This upper level energy will begin to aid in the development of a surface storm system northeastern “Old” Mexico by Thursday morning. In its advance, a southerly flow will set up and produce a solid fetch of Gulf moisture that will encompass much of the Gulf coast from Texas to Florida by Thursday morning.

    South-East Asia's language wars continue HAD he been president of Indonesia, not France, Charles de Gaulle might have modified his famous saying about cheeses and asked how to govern a nation with over 700 different languages. The answer, as elsewhere in South-East Asia, was to impose a “national” tongue. As the region’s countries became independent, most wanted their citizenry to speak the same indigenous language. But choosing an acceptable candidate sometimes proved difficult, laying the ground for “language wars” that still rage. A new collection of essays* from the Singapore-based Institute of South-East Asian Studies (ISEAS) reviews the region’s struggles...

    ATLANTA (AP) — Townspeople stood in the sweltering heat at grocery stores and community centers, waiting to fill plastic jugs with water. Tanker trucks rumbled down the highways, bringing relief to a thirsty town suddenly gone dry. That was the scene 13 years ago when the Georgia city of Macon ran out of water. But it could also be a glimpse of the very near future in Atlanta and some other cities in the drought-stricken Southeast. They may be down to just a few months of easily accessible water, and the faucets could run dry if reservoirs aren't replenished soon....

    Filling In The Blanks Of Southeast Asian Prehistory ScienceDaily (Oct. 24, 2007) — As archaeologists in the last half century have set about reconstructing the prehistory of Southeast Asia, data from one country—centrally located Laos—was conspicuously missing. Little archaeology has occurred in Laos since before World War II, and beginning in the mid-1970s, Laos shut its doors completely to outside researchers. International scholars had to content themselves with information from excavation and survey work mostly from neighboring Thailand. That scenario is beginning to shift—and new data, as well as new collaborative relationships—may forever change our perspective on an area that...

    Officials from Georgia and Korea hailed the development of Kia Motors Corp.'s $1.2 billion auto plant in Troup County as an economic boon for the Southeast as they turned over ceremonial shovels full of sand Friday near the Georgia-Alabama line. "We are looking forward to many years of cooperation as Kia's new plant in West Point creates thousands of jobs and sets the standard for the automotive industry," Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue said. Although the ceremony was celebrated as a groundbreaking, the 2,000-acre, red clay site was cleared months ago. On the hillsides surrounding the area, earth moving equipment was...

The biggest overseas education plan funded by Canberra is expected to be one of Australia's most tangible contributions to the concept of an East Asian Community, which will be discussed at this week's ASEAN and East Asian summits....

    Greater Southeast Community Hospital is looking across the globe to turn itself around after a bankruptcy nearly forced its closure more than two years ago. The hospital in the District's Ward 8 is bringing dozens of nurses from overseas to work at the 450-bed facility, which has had problems hiring and retaining staff over the years. "If you don't have stable nurse work force, then it can create confusion and inconsistencies," said Joan Phillips, the hospital's chief executive officer. "We're looking to the international nurses because this is a hard area to attract nurses to and there's a nursing shortage...

    The Imperial Nguyen Dynasty of Vietnam is politically pressuring the government of Vietnam to protect the liberty, religious rights of the Vietnamese people as well as the culture, traditions, languages of the Montagnards and Khmer Krom in Vietnam. (PRWEB) October 23, 2004 -- Today, Vietnam is experiencing a minor period of outward growth. Even the most dedicated Communists are abandoning old communist economic policies, which have proven to be ineffective and sometimes harmful. Capitalism is being introduced, with the Communist Party maintained only as a vehicle to exercise absolute control of the elite Party leaders over the common people. The...

    LUFKIN, Texas (AP) - A large piece of space shuttle Columbia debris was found recently in southeast Texas, a NASA official said. The 6-foot-long piece of the crew compartment was discovered two weeks ago in Newton County by a wildlife biologist, sheriffs officials said.

NASA had not yet picked up the piece, which had bright green moss growing over one section of the window. The biologist, Jason Sebesta, said he found it...

    Though none were earth-moving adjustments, Virginia passed more pro-gun laws than any other state this spring — a statistic local lawmakers say verifies the commonwealth’s commitment to protecting the rights of its law-abiding gun owners. Legislators approved 15 pro-gun laws, spurring shouts of praise from the National Rifle Association. “This year was definitely a very good year for the Second Amendment in Virginia,” said NRA spokesperson Kelly Hobbs, noting the 15 new laws. The movement away from tightening gun-control laws is a reflection of the state’s stance on firearms, according to the area legislators. “I’m pretty cut and dry on...

    A new diaspora of Al-Qaeda have taken refuge in South East Asia, working in small cells using political unrest as cover. While attention in Washington continues to be focused on Saddam Hussein and Iraq, the war on terrorism is far from over and has entered a new phase. US intelligence officials say Al-Qaeda operatives who found refuge in Pakistan are regrouping and moving back into Afghanistan less than a year after a successful US military campaign forced them to flee their one-time sanctuary by the thousands. Officials say the movement back into Afghanistan is still relatively small and many who...
