29.May 2002 Last Update DALLAS (CBS.MW) Halliburton shares fell 3 % Wednesday after the oil-services company disclosed that SEC Securities and Exchange Commission is probing the way it booked revenue from disputed construction jobs beginning in 1998, when U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney headed up Halliburton .

29.May 2002 Halliburton (HAL: news, chart, profile) said that it received notification from the SEC + that it expects to receive a formal request for documents or a subpoena in the next few days.

29.May 2002 Halliburton's stock regained some ground after falling nearly 7 & in early action.

29.May 2002 The stock closed at $18.72, down 63 cents.

29.May 2002 It was the most heavily traded issue early in the day, but the velocity tapered off as 13.3 million shares traded hands by the bell.

Halliburton Have you been watching Halliburton?

It is a lot like the Enron Case, except U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney is involved.

U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney arranged the purchase of Dresser + the asbestos liability that came with it.

U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney was also Halliburton CEO while Anderson implemented „aggressive accounting“ +

U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney subsequently made $18M in Halliburton stock options.

29.May 2002 -Now, Halliburton stock has dropped to under $18 from $50.

29.May 2002 Most analysts think Halliburton will pull out + go up from here, but it still looks like a pump + dump, even if Halliburton company is not destroyed.

Halliburton should pull through with all the defense contracts Halliburton have been getting.

06.Jul.2002 All The President's Enron s By Frank Rich
George W. Bush is so peeved about corporate America's "wrongdoers" - not to be confused with "evildoers" - that last week he spoke out about them four times in four days.

By the time he took a breather, the markets had hit their worst half-year finish since 1970, the Nasdaq was at a five-year low, the dollar was on the skids +, despite much evidence to the contrary, a majority of Americans had told CNN/USA Today pollsters that the country was in a recession.

On Tuesday the president returns to the subject in a full-dress speech on Wall Street.

Maybe it's time to try pinning the whole mess on Ann Richards again.

Mr. Bush keeps saying all the right things. He is "deeply concerned." He will "hold people accountable." But words, like stocks, lose value when nothing backs them up.

It is now more than six months since the president promised "a lot of government inquiry into Enron." Since then, Playboy has done a better job of exposing the women of Enron than the Bush administration has done at exposing its men. Just as the Justice Department rounded up some 1,000 alleged Sept. 11 suspects and failed to indict a single one of them for terrorist activity, so it has made a big show of its shaky Andersen conviction while failing to indict a single Enron executive or individual Andersen accountant. (Not that all the law-enforcement news is downbeat: last month John Ashcroft's minions held a press conference to boast that a 13-month investigation had led to the arrest of 12 prostitutes in New Orleans.)

The sight of a corporate crook being led away in handcuffs, Giuliani-style, would do far more to restore confidence in Wall Street than any more presidential blather. Mr. Bush says that only "a few bad actors" are at fault. Why is the administration so lax about bringing them to justice? URL:


Rubenstein, David appeared on the video praising Andersen for not collecting its fees right away when Rubenstein, David first started Rubenstein, David company, The Carlyle Group. "They carried us for quite a while," Rubenstein said.

23.Okt.2004 Bagdad - Die US-Streitkräfte haben in der Rebellenhochburg Falludscha ein Führungsmitglied aus al-Sarkawis Terror-Organisation festgenommen. Der Mann wurde zusammen mit fünf weiteren Aufständischen bei einer nächtlichen Razzia gestellt, wie die amerikanischen Streitkräfte mitteilten. "Weitere fünf Terroristen sind während der Militäraktion festgenommen worden", hieß es in einer Mitteilung der US-Armee. Bewohner der Stadt sprachen sogar von der Festnahme von mindestens 17 Menschen.
Während der Razzia im Süden Falludschas wurde nach US-Angaben ein Versteck des innersten Zirkels der Gruppe Dschihad und Tawhid ausgehoben. Die Organisation bezichtigte sich zahlreicher Selbstmordanschläge und Entführungen und operiert nach Einschätzung der US-Streitkräfte von Falludscha aus. Der Name des festgenommenen Führungsmitglieds wurde zunächst nicht mitgeteilt. URL:,1518,druck-324631,00.html
23.Okt.2004 Die Vereinten Nationen äußerten unterdessen die Einschätzung, dass das irakische Sondertribunal für den geplanten Prozess gegen Ex-Staatschef Saddam Hussein internationalen Rechtsstandards nicht genügen wird. Eine Unterstützung durch Uno-Institutionen komme nicht in Frage, weil das irakische Gericht auch die Todesstrafe verhängen dürfe, sagte ein Sprecher von Generalsekretär Kofi Annan am Freitag in New York. Die irakische Regierung habe beim Uno-Tribunal für das frühere Jugoslawien in Den Haag angefragt, ob eine Ausbildung von Richtern und Staatsanwälten möglich sei. Das habe Annan jedoch abgelehntURL:,1518,druck-324631,00.html

23.Okt.2004 Firmeninhaber Nathan Sproul, der frühere Parteivorsitzende der Republikaner in Arizona, wies die Vorwürfe als "Erfindung der Demokraten" zurück. "Sie prangern Betrug an, wo keiner ist + bekommen auch noch die Medien dazu, darüber zu berichten."
Zuvor hatte der "Orlando Sentinel" berichtet, dass zig Tausende Wähler in mehreren Bundesstaaten registriert sind. Die Zeitung verglich Wahllisten in den Bundesstaaten Florida, Georgia und North Carolina. Dabei stellte sich heraus, dass etwa 68.000 US-Bürger Floridas auch in einem der beiden anderen Staaten registriert sind mit gleichem Namen und gleichem Geburtsdatum.
Republikaner schicken Wahlbeobachter nach Ohio
Die Republikanische Partei leitete formale Schritte ein, um Tausende Mitarbeiter in den Wahllokalen unterzubringen. Sie sollen laut "New York Times" Wähler überprüfen, ob sie sie teilnahmeberechtigt sind. Da sei notwendig, um sich vor möglichen Täuschungsversuchen zu schützen, denn die Demokraten hätten sich zuletzt aggressiv darum bemüht, Zehntausende neue Wähler in Ohio registrieren zu lassen. Der Staat ist einer der Swing States, in dem der Wahlausgang bisher völlig ungewiss ist. URL:,1518,druck-324653,00.html
23.Okt.2004 Alles gelogen, schreibt nun die "Washington Post". Eine gute Woche vor der Präsidentenwahl gebe es keine konkreten Hinweise auf einen groß angelegten Terroranschlag. Frühere Warnungen hätten auf erfundenen Informationen eines Geheimdienstmitarbeiters basiert, berichtet das Blatt unter Berufung auf Geheimdienste und Polizei. Auch der Einsatz von rund 2000 Spezialisten des Bundeskriminalamtes FBI, Hunderte von Verhören und 120 Festnahmen von Ausländern allein in diesem Monat hätten keine Anzeichen auf einen Terroranschlag zu Tage gefördert.
Die innere Sicherheit ist ein zentrales Wahlkampfthema in den USA. Die beiden demokratischen Kandidaten John Kerry und John Edwards haben US-Präsident George W. Bush wiederholt vorgeworfen, aus Wahlkampfgründen gezielt die Ängste der Menschen zu schüren. In einer neuen Fernsehwerbung zur Wahl am 2. November setzen die Republikaner von Bush ein Rudel Wölfe als Metapher für die Terrorismusgefahr ein. Zugleich wird Kerry unterstellt, dass die USA unter seiner Führung in Gefahr seienURL:,1518,druck-324651,00.html
23.Okt.2004 Washington - Der US-Präsident schürte bewusst Erinnerungen an Madrid: Die Terroranschläge vom März dieses Jahres hatten Hunderte Tote gefordert - und wahrscheinlich die Wahl zu Gunsten des Sozialdemokraten José Luis Zapatero entschieden, der wenig später eines seiner Versprechen erfüllte und die spanischen Truppen aus dem Irak abzog.
Auch in den USA, so hatte Bush am 15.Sep.2001 gemeinsam mit den Chefs des Geheimdienstes CIA + der Bundespolizei FBI gewarnt, könnten Islamisten versuchen, mit einem Anschlag die Wahl am 02.Nov.2004 zu beeinflussen. Bush hatte von Terrorplänen mit möglicherweise vielen Opfern berichtet - + davon, dass die potenziellen Attentäter zu jenem Zeitpunkt bereits im Lande gewesen seien. URL:,1518,druck-324651,00.html
23.Okt.2004 Zeitungsbericht - Bushs Terrorwarnung basierte auf Erfindung
Mit dramatischen Worten hatte US-Präsident George W. Bush davor gewarnt, Terroristen planten einen verheerenden Anschlag, um den Ausgang der Präsidentschaftswahl in den USA zu beeinflussen.

Doch einem Zeitungsbericht zufolge waren die Hinweise auf den Anschlag von einem Geheimdienstmitarbeiter frei erfunden worden. URL:,1518,druck-324651,00.html

23.Okt.2004 Stimmt es eigentlich, dass man eine Teflon-Pfanne nicht mehr benutzen darf, wenn die Beschichtung verkratzt ist?
Stimmt nicht. Ein Spiegelei mag an der zerkratzten Stelle zwar leichter anbacken, nachteilige Auswirkungen auf die Gesundheit sind damit aber nicht verbunden.

00.000.1938 entwickelte Jahrhundert-Werkstoff Teflon (kurz für Polytetrafluorethylen) trotzt selbst hohen Temperaturen + aggressiven Säuren, ohne sich in seine einzelnen Bestandteile zu zersetzen. URL:
Aufgrund dieser hervorragenden chemischen und thermischen Beständigkeit hat sich Teflon zahlreiche Einsatzgebiete jenseits der Bratpfanne erobert.

Erst ab einer Temperatur von über 260 Grad Celsius beginnt der robuste Werkstoff sich zu verändern – + diese hohen Temperaturen werden von Haushaltsherden üblicherweise nicht erreicht.

23.Okt.2004 Dabei zeigte sich, dass die flachen, bis zu 40 Kilometer tiefen Störungszonen gleich doppeltem Druck durch die Gezeiten ausgesetzt sind: Zum einen macht das Gewicht der heranrollenden Wellen die geologischen Verwerfungen extrem verwundbar. Zum anderen zerrt die Anziehungskraft von Sonne und Mond, die letztlich für die Gezeiten verantwortlich ist, nicht nur an den Wassermassen, sondern an der gesamten Erde. Das übt zusätzlichen Stress auf die Platten aus, Erdbeben sind die unausweichbare Folge.

23.Okt.2004 Wenn Geologen zuletzt versucht haben, einen Zusammenhang zwischen der bebenden Erde und anderen Kräften im Universum herzustellen, wurden sie ein ums andere Mal enttäuscht. Egal ob Anziehungskraft der Sonne oder wechselnde Stellung des Mondes - nichts von alldem hat als Verursacher von Erdstößen getaugt.
Doch nun haben Geophysiker aus Japan und den USA zumindest einen indirekten Zusammenhang gefunden, wie die Forscher in der aktuellen Ausgabe des Fachmagazins "Science" berichten. Demnach können besonders starke Gezeiten einen so hohen Druck auf Erdspalten unter dem Meeresgrund ausüben, dass urplötzlich die Erde zu beben beginnt.
23.Okt.2004 "Die simple Idee, dass ein einziges der vielen hundert Gene auf dem Chromosom die Erkrankung auslöst, lässt sich nicht länger aufrecht erhalten", sagt Roger Reeves, einer der Co-Autoren der Studie. "Nun sollten Forscher einmal tief durchatmen, die Komplexität des Down-Syndroms akzeptieren und nach vorne blicken."
Offensichtlich wird Trisomie 21, so die erste Schlussfolgerung der US-Mediziner, durch ein komplexes Zusammenspiel von genetischen und durch die Entwicklung bestimmten Faktoren hervorgerufen. Falls sich dieser Verdacht erhärtet und die Gene nicht allein Schuld sind, könnte eines Tages sogar, so Reeves, eine Form der Behandlung für das Down-Syndrom möglich werden.

23.Okt.2004 Aus den Digitalfotos erstellten die Wissenschaftler ein 3D-Modell des Tieres am Computer. "Obwohl man das Wort Rekonstruieren verwenden könnte, haben wir hier ein richtiges Tier vor uns", sagte Siveter. "Es handelt sich keinesfalls um eine Fantasie." URL:,1518,druck-324275,00.html
23.Okt.2004 Virtuelle Auferstehung - Computer erweckt Spinnenfossil zum Leben
Asselspinnen leben im Meer, bestehen fast nur aus Beinen und saugen wirbellose Tiere aus. Ob sie mit "echten" Spinnen verwandt sind, war lange umstritten - bis Forscher einem Fossil mit Schleifer und Digicam zu Leibe rückten und es virtuell zum Leben erweckten. URL:,1518,druck-324275,00.html
23.Okt.2004 Der Oxford-Professor David Siveter hatte keine Wahl: Wenn er etwas über das Asselspinnen-Fossil erfahren wollte, musste er es zerstören.

Denn das vor 425 Millionen Jahren verendete Tier steckte in einem kalkhaltigen Stein, so dass chemische oder mechanische Techniken keinen Erfolg versprachen. "Die Zusammensetzung des Fossils und die des Gesteins, in dem es steckt, sind gleich", erklärte Siveter gegenüber "BBC News Online".
Also trug das englisch-amerikanische Forscherteam mit einem Präzisionsschleifer den Stein Schicht für Schicht ab. Nach jedem Schleifvorgang schossen die Wissenschaftler ein Digitalfoto.

Das Gerät arbeitete sich in kleinen Schritten durch das Gestein: Es holte pro Schicht nur etwa einen Fünfzigstel Millimeter herunter, schreiben die Wissenschaftler um Siveter im Magazin "Nature" (Bd. 431, S. 978). URL:,1518,druck-324275,00.html
