    NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is giving astronomers their most detailed view yet of a second red spot emerging on Jupiter. For the first time in history, astronomers have witnessed the birth of a new red spot on the giant planet, which is located half a billion miles away. The storm is roughly one-half the diameter of its bigger and legendary cousin, the Great Red Spot. Researchers suggest that the new spot may be related to a possible major climate change in Jupiter's atmosphere. These images were taken with Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys on April 8 and 16, 2006

    Schoolgirls riot at tourist spot By NIGEL ADLAM 17sep05 HUNDREDS of people watched in horror as a mob of schoolgirls rioted at Darwin's biggest tourist attraction.

    The televised images of poverty-stricken evacuees from Hurricane Katrina are part of a provocative, last-minute effort by a liberal interest group to divert federal Judge John Roberts' path to confirmation as chief justice. Political Action plans to unveil a TV ad on Monday that questions whether Roberts is sensitive enough to civil rights concerns to lead the Supreme Court. The ad suggests that the plight of the mostly African-American evacuees in New Orleans showed that poverty remains a serious problem among minorities, said Ben Brandzel, the group's advocacy director. In a mix of judicial and racial politics, the ad...

    LOS ANGELES - A year and a half after twin robot rovers thrilled space fans with their hijinks on Mars, NASA is heading there again. A fourth Mars orbiter is set to blast off Wednesday, carrying some of the most sophisticated science instruments ever sent into space. Circling the Red Planet, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter will scan the desolate surface in search of sites to land more robotic explorers in the next decade. "It's time we start peeling back the onion layer and start looking at Mars from different vantage points," said project manager James Graf of the Jet Propulsion...

    WASHINGTON - The park service has given the Presidential Inaugural Committee clearance to erect bleachers along parts of Pennsylvania Avenue where an anti-war group had requested permits to stage a large-scale protest during President Bush (news - web sites)'s parade. The A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition had applied for permits to assemble, and in some cases build bleachers, along parts of the historic street that stretches from the Capitol to the White House. The National Park Service has not acted on the coalition's permits. However, angry coalition officials argued Friday that permitting the inaugural committee to build bleachers in several open spaces, such...

    Today, I thought it would be appropriate to have a Dose dedicated to the memory of Spot Fletcher Bush. We , on the Dose, have watched Spotty in her devotion and obedience to her Master and Mistress, and we know that her death will cause great pain for them, and for the entire family. Spot was a 15 year old English Springer Spaniel, daughter of President and Mrs. Bush 41’s dog, Millie. She was born in the White House, and spent her last days there as well, having suffered several strokes in her last days. It was on the recommendation...

    WASHINGTON - Spot, President Bush's brown-and-white English springer spaniel, died Saturday. She would have been 15 next month. Spot was a puppy of Millie, who belonged to the elder President Bush and his wife, Barbara, and was born in the White House on March 17, 1989. The White House announced that Spot had a series of strokes recently, including one last week. Spot's veterinarian recommended that she be put to sleep, and the first family followed that advice Saturday.
