    Juice fasts, raw foods cleansing, water-only detox — you’ve probably tried them all by now. Fads like these promise to leave you feeling rejuvenated, but their effectiveness is uncertain at best.

Yes, you can flush your body of years’ worth of accumulated toxins, simply by consuming between eight and twelve chili dogs every day for a week. Through this uniquely formulated system, stronger immune protections, clearer skin, and quicker neural pathways can be...

    A woman has been accused of breaking into a house, washing the dishes, tidying and vacuuming before leaving a bill with her name on it for $75. When police confronted Susan Warren, 53, about the alleged early-morning break in, she told them she 'does it all the time'. Warren allegedly broke into the home in Westlake,Ohio after picking the house at random while driving down the street, she said.

    OAKLAND -- Work crews and employees of trashed buildings in downtown Oakland set to work this morning cleaning up from the post-midnight riot that broke out after Occupy Oakland's daylong general strike. Graffiti was spray-painted on many buildings along Broadway from 14th to 16th streets, where masked vandals shattered windows and threw objects at police. Officers responded by firing tear gas and flash-bang grenades and making dozens of arrests. ... At the Men's Wearhouse, which had closed Wednesday and put up signs in support of the general strike, windows were shattered. A box nearby read, "Cop uniform surrender box." No...

    Man has stolen 2,600 gallons from stations in Travis County.A gas thief is literally cleaning up at gas stations in Travis County — pumping fuel from underground tanks while spraying the pavement with a pressure washer to make it look like he belongs there. The man has struck three gas stations in the past 15 months, making off with about 2,600 gallons of fuel, which he pumps into tanks mounted in the bed of a pickup truck and on a double-axle utility trailer, the Travis County Sheriff's office said. Most recently, he drove into Graef's Grocery at U.S. 183 south...
  • A bathroom that cleans itself

    Cleaning bathrooms may become a thing of the past with new coatings that will do the job for you. Researchers at the University of New South Wales are developing new coatings they hope will be used for self-cleaning surfaces in hospitals and the home. Led by Professor Rose Amal and Professor Michael Brungs of the ARC Centre for Functional Nanomaterials, a research team is studying tiny particles of titanium dioxide currently used on outdoor surfaces such as self-cleaning windows. The particles work by absorbing ultraviolet light below a certain wavelength, exciting electrons and giving the particles an oxidising quality stronger...

    The Last Word Posted Sept. 9, 2002 By Scott Wheeler New DoD Inspector General Cleans House An independent review of the Department of Defense Inspector General's Office (DoDIG) has determined that the new inspector general, Joseph E. Schmitz, inherited "serious problems" dating back four or five years, according to sources familiar with the executive summary of a report due to be released the week of Sept. 9 in response to an investigation by Insight. The DoDIG would not provide a copy of the confidential summary, but Insight has confirmed that the report contains evidence of "major problems" during the Clinton...

    Bush Admin. Defends al-Qaida Review WASHINGTON- Bush administration officials say they moved as quickly as possible to assemble a plan for eliminating the al-Qaida terror network, defending a review that took eight months and was completed only a week before the Sept. 11 attacks. The Clinton administration had handed off to the incoming Bush team detailed assessments of the threat, and offered ideas on how to counter al-Qaida. But aides to President Bush took issue Sunday with a report in this week's Time magazine that the current administration's review of its predecessor's briefings became bogged down in bureaucracy. The Bush...
