    Most of us see a wagging dog’s tail and think it’s got to be a good sign. Wagging = welcome, right? Especially if it’s the kind of wag that’s knocking over small items. But it turns out that not all wags are equal, and some are a lot more welcoming than others. When I walked into my college biology course freshman year, we started out with a discussion of symmetry. Most animal are built with some symmetry, either radial or bilateral — radial like a starfish, bilateral like a human. Symmetry means things, like health or attractiveness. But it turns...

    Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader. "The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said. Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest...

    Dogs' behaviour - it's all in the wag By Roger Highfield, Science Editor Last Updated: 12:28am GMT 24/03/2007 Dogs wag their tails to the right when they see something familiar, such as their owner, and to the left when confronted with something they want to run away from, it was revealed yesterday. The bias is subtle, requiring video analysis to spot, and not obvious enough for you to tell whether the next dog you meet is going to lick your face or turn tail. But, researchers suggest, the study of wagging could be used in animal welfare to help vets...

    Before the real news, there's a little interesting background news we should take care of. This comes from the "Be careful who you blame department," because everything is not always exactly as it looks. We've been hoodwinked. Yeah, you, me, all of us. It appears to me that there is a major scam afoot. It's kind of funny, in a sick sort of way; but it is a flimflam nonetheless. First, we know that Dan Rather and his cohorts at CBS have a major bias. Among other things, they "fixed" a certain "60 Minutes" program many years ago to pump...

    In the various critiques of Richard Clarke testimony before the 9-11 commission, one fact that has been insufficiently challenged is the truth-or-falsity of the claim that Cinton's one instance of retaliation against Bin Laden was an instance of "wag the dog".Clarke posits that Clinton's failure to pursue Bin Laden was caused by the "unfortunate" misperception that, because of Clinton's Lewinsky problems, that his actions (cruise-bombing the Afghan camps and Sudan aspirin factory) were intended as distractions. Clarke infers, therefore, that this was a 'false' critique of Clinton, and caused the Clinton administration to back off of its retaliation plans. And...
