    Members of the House will soon vote on the Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 2010, which is essentially the response by the House Democratic leadership to the Toyota sudden acceleration scandal. The measure includes a $9 per car tax to fund a lengthy list of actions to be taken by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to make sure your car doesn't suddenly accelerate without your permision in the future. The tax will be disguised as a "Vehicle Safety Fund" fee to be collected by the manufacturers. That means it will be actually be collected as part of the...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - More than 1 billion people live in low-lying areas where a sudden surge in sea level could prove as disastrous as the 2004 Asian tsunami, according to new research presented on Thursday. New mapping techniques show how much land would be lost and how many people affected by rapid sea level rises that are often triggered by storms and earthquakes, a U.S. Geological Survey-led team determined. E. Lynn Usery, who led the team, said nearly one-quarter of the world's population lives below 100 feet above sea level -- the size of the biggest surge during the...

    Sudden ChillEven a limited nuclear exchange could trigger a climate catastrophe Sid Perkins In the mid-1980s, at the height of the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union each had thousands of nuclear warheads, along with a multitude of aircrews and missiles, sitting on red alert to carry those bombs to their targets at a moment's notice. The philosophy of mutual assured destruction—the notion that any use of nuclear weapons would trigger a full-fledged exchange that neither nation would survive—may have deterred any use of such bombs since World War II. Today's combination of nuclear proliferation, political instability,...

    THE next time the FCC complains about How ard Stern, Viacom has promised to yank him off the air immediately. The unusual "sudden death" deal is part of a sweeping, $3.5 million consent decree announced yesterday by the FCC that wipes out "at least 50" indecency investigations against all of Viacom's radio and TV stations — including several against Stern, as well as Opie & Anthony's $357,000 fine for their infamous "Sex in St. Pat's" contest. It does not include the $550,00 fine against CBS for Janet Jackson's Super Bowl flash, which the network has vowed to fight in...

    Why doesnt anyone bring this up in the mainstream media? Let me know what you think!!! I think that all the evidence is there. It explains that babies are inhaling gases that are being emitted from the mattress, and its the gases that are causing the deaths. It also says that SIDS can be prevented by wrapping the mattress a certain way in a polyethylene plastic, or by purchasing a specific cover which contains the polyethylene. I quoted these from: "it is caused by very toxic nerve gases which can be generated from mattresses and certain other bedding...
  • In the rush to protect children, 'experts' use junk science to accuse innocent parents

    UK Telegraph ^ | 13 December 2003 | James Le Fanu and David Derbyshire investigate
    First there was Sally Clark, then Trupti Patel, and now Angela Cannings. Three women wrongly accused of serial infanticide - one of the most horrendous crimes imaginable. Each prosecution relied on evidence from Sir Roy Meadow, Britain's leading cot-death expert who decided that, on the balance of probability, these mothers had murdered their children. Yet, according to a growing body of concerned lawyers, doctors and parents, these are not isolated cases but symptomatic of a legal and medical system so determined to protect children that it fails to protect the innocent. In this culture junk science can be seen as...

    LONDON (Reuters Health) - Many apparently healthy adults may be dying unexpectedly in a grown-up version of the "cot death" phenomenon, British researchers said on Friday. In Yahoo! Health Colon Cancer:Katie Couric supports Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month More from Yahoo! Health: • Get the Facts • Early Detection • Catch it Early • Email A Friend The British Heart Foundation said a study showed that the number of adults who collapse and die suddenly without explanation could be "much greater than is recorded in official statistics." Like sudden infant death syndrome, such deaths should be labeled "sudden adult death syndrome,"...

    Contact: Dr. Dolores 011-507-212-8101Smithsonian Institution An origin of new world agriculture in coastal Ecuador New archaeological evidence points to an independent origin of agriculture in coastal Ecuador 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. Suddenly, the remains of larger squash plants appear in the record. The Las Vegas site, described by Dolores Piperno of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) and Karen Stothert, University of Texas at Austin in the February 14th issue of Science, may predate plant domestication sites in the Mesoamerican highlands. The fertile and amazingly diverse lowland tropics seem like a likely place for agriculture to develop. But...

    Sudden stroke cure shocks doctors October 25 2002 at 11:07AM When partly paralysed stroke patient Cecil September plugged in the electrical cable and held tight to the bare wires, he prayed as he waited to die. Instead, within hours, he had fully recovered. The astonishing phenomenon has baffled doctors who have treated the Lentegeur man. It sounds like a bizarre tale from a "believe it or not" television show - but September's firm handshake and the spring in his step are proof that cannot be ignored. September suffered two severe strokes, one in December 2000 and a second in March...
