    Sen. Robert Menendez wooed a married newspaper publisher, taking the attractive brunette on a romantic getaway to the Caribbean, a tipster alleges. The New Jersey Dem and Cecilia Reynolds jetted to Puerto Rico, where they stayed at the isolated beach retreat of the island’s then-governor, Anibal Acevedo Vila. In a photo provided by the anonymous informant, Reynolds is sitting naked on a beach and suggestively smiling at the camera. In another set of pictures, they take turns posing against the same sunset backdrop. The happy couple, dressed in shorts, also appeared to tour a national park and pose for a...

Animation of the film will be made in the United States, indoor scenes will be shot in Taiwan, and outdoor actions will be filmed in China, it noted. Top...

    World Health Organization scientists are suspected of accepting secret bribes from vaccine manufacturers to influence the U.N. organization's H1N1 pandemic declaration, according to Danish and Swedish newspapers. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical profits from swine-flu related drugs have soared – with earnings between $10 billion and $15 billion in 2009, investment bank JP Morgan estimates. As WND reported, the WHO Director General Margaret Chan initially raised the influenza pandemic alert to its second highest level in May – but evidence reveals the agency may have made it easier to classify the flu outbreak as a pandemic by changing its definition to omit "enormous...

    The experiment goes something like this: A volunteer subject sits at a desk in a room, thinking he's there to answer some survey questions, but in reality, this is an experiment on human behavior and covert influence. A researcher sits on the other side of the desk, facing the subject. There is a glass jar on the desk, filled with cookies. The researcher casually asks the subject, "Would you like a cookie?" And some percentage of subjects say yes, but it's a small number, perhaps something like 15% - 20% (I don't remember the exact numbers, but that's not important...

    IOWA CITY, Iowa - Five Democratic presidential hopefuls dined on barbecue Saturday and delivered their stump speeches to about 1,800 party faithful packed into a swine barn at the Johnson County fairgrounds. Hoping to attract votes in this Democrat-rich part of Iowa were Chris Dodd, Bill Richardson, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Dennis Kucinich. Representatives for Barack Obama and Joe Biden also addressed the crowd of hundreds, who swatted at flies and fanned themselves on an unseasonably hot October evening. Edwards was escorted to the barn doors with supporters chanting, "We love Elizabeth, we love John, we want to see...

    ARBIL, Iraq (Reuters) - Leaders of the Shi'ite and Kurdish blocs that emerged triumphant in this month's Iraqi election agreed on Tuesday to push ahead with efforts to bring Sunni and other parties into a grand coalition government. The visit of Abdul-Aziz al-Hakim of the Shi'ite Islamist Alliance to the Kurdish capital Arbil opened a series of planned meetings among rival factions intended to ease friction over election results which Sunni and secular parties say have been rigged and to begin building a consensus administration. "We agreed on the principle of forming a government involving all the parties with a...

    Mice may not sing for their supper but male mice seem to sing to their prospective mates. Researchers at Washington University made this discovery when they eavesdropped on male mice that had been exposed to the scent of female urine. "We started recording the vocalizations to assess the factors that lead to recognition of female pheromones but the vocalizations turned out to be much more complicated and interesting than we expected," says Timothy E. Holy, lead author of the report detailing the findings, published online today by the Public Library of Science Biology. "It's not yet clear whether singing conveys...

    SACRAMENTO — Even as his battle with Democrats and their union supporters continues, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is preparing to adopt some of his opponents' most important issues as his own next year, when he will be campaigning for reelection. Schwarzenegger wants to focus on health insurance for children, homelessness and big building projects that have been the hallmark of some Democratic governors, administration officials and others said — an effort to craft a less confrontational agenda than this year's. --snip-- The 2006 agenda could make him appear conciliatory and force Democrats to debate important policy changes with him as he...

    Democrat leaders to woo single women Gary Younge, New York Saturday August 9, 2003 The Guardian (UK) Democratic party pollsters have identified single women as a key new demographic group that it must galvanise if it is to recover the White House next year. Nicknamed the "Sex in the City voters", single women are less likely to turn up to the polls than married women but more likely to vote Democrat if they do: a potentially rich source of votes if the Democrats can tap their concerns. Previously the party's pollsters concentrated on the gap between men, who tend to...
