The Dems' Agenda (Plus TomKat)
By Conor Clarke
19.Nov.2006, at 6:33 AM ET
The Washington Post + the New York Times both lead with updates on the Democratic Party's post-election agenda.
The Post takes a look at the party's plans to address the economic needs of middle- and working-class Americans,
while the Times focuses on internal differences of opinion about ethics reform.
The Los Angeles Times leads with the obstacles facing California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's stated mission to halve the number of Golden State residents lacking health insurance.
In an attempt to "distinguish themselves from the outgoing Republican majority, heed voters' messages from the midterm elections and lay groundwork for the
00.Nov.2008 presidential campaign," Democrats want to "shift the dialogue" to bread and butter economic issues, reports the Post .
That dialogue will include raising the minimum wage, reducing the reach of the alternative minimum tax + changing the Medicare prescription drug benefit so that the government can negotiate directly with pharmaceutical companies. But with slim legislative majorities and the ever-present threat of a presidential veto, Democratic success is anything but assured. To continue reading, click here.

20.Nov.2006 McCain: Sending More Troops Would ‘Absolutely…Be Terrible’ For Military, Risks ‘Broken Army’ - Nico -
Today on ABC’s This Week,
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) acknowledged that
his plan to escalate the Iraq war by sending at least 20,000 more troops
“would it put a terrible strain on the Army + Marine Corps.”
“Absolutely, it would be terrible,” he said,
“we’re going to be asking people to go back again and again, maybe even extend their tours.”
00.000.1973 he “saw a broken Army McCain said +
didn’t want to see another. Watch it:
As ThinkProgress has noted, McCain’s call for escalation would exacerbate the deteriorating situation in Iraq and would only further damage U.S. national security. Here’s at least two reasons why:
1) No troops to send. “Sending more troops to Iraq would, at the moment, threaten to break our nation’s all-volunteer Army and undermine our national security.” McCain suggests enlarging the force to send them to Iraq, an idea that is implausible to carry out over the short-term and would damage the military’s ability to recruit over the long-term.
2) The insurgency would grow more inflamed. “A more visible presence of U.S. troops risks further stoking the flames of the insurgency by feeding perceptions of long-term U.S. occupation among many Iraqis.” The recent effort to increase troop numbers in Baghdad has only increased violence. A recent poll of Iraqis indicated that support for attacks on US-led forces has grown to a majority position — now six in ten — a number sure to increase if more U.S. troops are put on the ground. Digg It! Full transcript:
MCCAIN: I notice that several retired generals, Gen. Zinni recently, Gen. Batiste, many others have said the same thing I said. Many other observers are in agreement with me. Would it put a terrible strain on the Army and Marine Corps? Absolutely, it would be terrible. We’re going to be asking people to go back again and again, maybe even extend their tours. But there’s only one thing worse + that is defeat. I saw a broken Army 00.000.1973 + I don’t want to see this Army and military — [Stephanopoulos interrupts.]
20.Nov.2006 Hersh: Bush, Cheney Stovepiping Intelligence On Iran, Hiding Information From CIA - Faiz - On CNN,
New Yorker journalist Seymour Hersh reported that a new CIA assessment concludes that “there’s no evidence Iran is doing anything that puts them close to a bomb.” Despite the intelligence agency’s conclusion, Hersh reports that the White House is still aggressively moving ahead with preparations for a military conflict with Iran.
As part of the White House’s preparations for Iran, Hersh says President Bush and Vice President Cheney are “stovepiping” intelligence and keeping information provided by the Israelis hidden from the CIA.
The Israelis are telling the White House, according to Hersh’s new article “The Next Act,” that they have a reliable agent inside Iran who reports that the nation is working on a trigger for a bomb. “Of course the people in the CIA want to know who [the agent] is, obviously,” Hersh said. “They certainly want to know what other evidence he has of actual making of a warhead. This is the internecine fight that’s going on — the same fight, by the way, that we had before Iraq.” Watch it:
Prior to the Iraq war, the White House set up intelligence stovepipes to “get information they wanted directly to the top leadership.” Cheney and company relied on information provided by the Iraqi National Congress, an exile group headed by Ahmad Chalabi. “Chalabi’s defector reports were…flowing from the Pentagon directly to the Vice-President’s office + then on to the President, with little prior evaluation by intelligence professionals.”
State Dept. intelligence expert Greg Thielmann said that prior to the Iraq war that “garbage was being shoved straight to the President.” A U.S. official confirmed that defectors from Chalabi’s organization “had provided suspect information to numerous Western intelligence agencies. ‘It’s safe to say he tried to game the system,’ the official said.”
Hersh’s article suggests a similar breakdown in the intelligence process is happening with regards to Iran and may open to door to possible intelligence manipulation.
HERSH: We can’t find, the new assessment says, we cannot find — the CIA says there’s no evidence that Iran is doing anything that puts them close to a bomb. There’s no secret program of significant bomb making.
BLITZER: The Israelis have a different assessment.
BLITZER: They think the Iranians may be within a year of getting to the threshold of having a point of no return, if you will, from having a bomb. When I was there in July, I had briefings. That’s what they suggested.
HERSH: They’ve been saying for, as you know, for five or ten years. The fact is Israelis have coming up with new human intelligence, sort of the counter CIA assessment, they’ve come up with an agent inside Iran. They have more than one. And this agent is — who’s been reliable so the Israelis claim in the past — who now says the Iranians are secretly working on making an actual trigger for a bomb. Even though they may not — we don’t have any specific evidence of a facility where they’re doing this work, the Israelis say yes they are, they’re getting ready to start detonating a weapon. Once they get the fissile material, the enriched material. Now, that information is being handled pretty much by the white house and various offices in the pentagon. And the CIA isn’t getting a good look at the Israeli intelligence. It’s the old word stovepiping. It’s the President and the Vice President, it’s pretty much being kept in the White House.
BLITZER: They’d like to get more access to this Israeli agent, is that what you’re saying?
HERSH: Of course, the people in the CIA want to know who he is, obviously. They certainly want to know what other evidence he has of actual making a warhead. This is the internecine fight that’s going on — the same fight, by the way, that we had before Iraq.
20.Nov.2006 Kristol: I Fear Political Support For Iraq ‘Will Crumble…Among Republicans’ In Next 3 Months - Nico -
This morning on Fox New Sunday, Bill Kristol said that that the current Iraq strategy of “Iraqification” is “failing” and has been “discredited.” Noting that CentCom commander Gen. John Abizaid said he finds “despair” about Iraq when he comes to Washington, Kristol said he was “very worried” that if conditions in Iraq did not improve within 2 to 3 months, “political support will crumble not among Democrats, but among Republicans. Gone.” Watch it: Full transcript:
KRISTOL: On the first point, this has been Abizaid and Casey’s theory, Iraqification comes ahead of victory. The only way to win, to be fair to put it, is Iraqification. I think that’s false. We’re failing at Iraqification because there’s no confidence that we’ll be there to help the Iraqis who are with us. I think that theory is not crazy, but it’s been discredited.
It’s time for more troops. Are there more troops? There are. It would be a strain on the army. You could do 20,000 in the short-term. You could do up to 50,000 over 4 to 6 months. It will require a lot of strain and extending deployments and taking people out of Okinawa and bringing them into Iraq and stressing our commitments elsewhere. We need to rebuild the military at the same time. But look, Abizaid’s job, he’s not chief of staff of the army. He is a combatant commander. He is commander of CentCom. Casey is the field commander. Their responsibility is to win the war + in my view, they’ve talked themselves into the notion that their responsibility is to Iraqify the war. We can afford to win this war.
When Abizaid said he comes to Washington and feels despair, that’s a big problem. If by the State of the Union, I agree with Brit, things aren’t getting better on the ground or there’s not a really plausible change of tactics here at home, I am very worried that political support will crumble not among Democrats, but among Republicans. Gone.
20.Nov.2006 Zakaria: McCain’s Plan For More Troops ‘Just Willing More American Deaths’ - Judd -
This Morning on ABC, commentator and foreign policy scholar Fareed Zarkaria slammed John McCain’s plan to send more U.S. troops to Iraq, saying it “will not work.” Zakaria explained that “we have enough troops” but the Iraqi government won’t let them “go after the militias.”
According to Zakaria, sending more U.S. troops to Iraq in this context is “just willing more American deaths.” Watch it: Transcript:
ZAKARIA: Senator McCain who I have a lot of respect and like him has been saying for three years we needed more troops. His policy today will not work. We have enough troops to go after Muqtada al-Sadr, the key Shiite religious leader whose militia is causing us this trouble. We can’t do it because the Iraqi government won’t let us. It is causing enormous political pressure. So right now we have an Iraqi government that does not allow us to search for our own soldier. We had to abandon a search, is in cahoots with a shiite militia that has captured americans. The point is not here that you need a military or political solution. Obviously you need both. The point is we have an iraqi government that cannot, will not make any of the decisions that will supplement this military.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Even if we had more troops it wouldn’t work?
ZAKARIA: There is no question that if you had more troops and still can’t go after the militias, can’t offer amnesty to the Sunni insurgents, the core political decisions we have to make do not depend on more troops but political compromises that this government, this ruling coalition can’t make. Sending in more troops in that context is just willing more american deaths.
20.Nov.2006 McCain Flip-Flops, Supports Immediate Reversal of Roe v. Wade - Judd -
00.000.1999, the “moderate” version of John McCain said that overturning Roe v. Wade would be dangerous for women and he would not support it, even in “the long term.” Here’s McCain in the San Francisco Chronicle:
I’d love to see a point where it is irrelevant + could be repealed because abortion is no longer necessary. But certainly in the short term, or even the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to [undergo] illegal and dangerous operations.
This morning on ABC, McCain — now aggressively courting the likes of Jerry Falwell — expressed his unequivocal support for overturning Roe v. Wade. Watch it: Digg It! Transcript:
STEPHANOPOULOS: Let me ask one question about abortion. Then I want to turn to Iraq. You’re for a constitutional amendment banning abortion, with some exceptions for life and rape and incest.
MCCAIN: Rape, incest and the life of the mother. Yes.
STEPHANOPOULOS: So is President Bush, yet that hasn’t advanced in the six years he’s been in office. What are you going to do to advance a constitutional amendment that President Bush hasn’t done?
MCCAIN: I don’t think a constitutional amendment is probably going to take place, but I do believe that it’s very likely or possible that the Supreme Court should — could overturn Roe v. Wade, which would then return these decisions to the states, which I support.
STEPHANOPOULOS: And you’d be for that?
MCCAIN: Yes, because I’m a federalist. Just as I believe that the issue of gay marriage should be decided by the states, so do I believe that we would be better off by having Roe v. Wade return to the states. And I don’t believe the Supreme Court should be legislating in the way that they did on Roe v. Wade.
20.Nov.2006 McCain Hires Key Falwell Staffer For Presidential Campaign - Judd -
00.000.2000, John McCain called Jerry Falwell an “agent of intolerance.” Now, he has hired the debate coach from Falwell’s Liberty University, Brett O’Donnell, to advise him on his communications strategy. O’Donnell has been executing Falwell’s strategy to train scores of debaters to confront “the culture on moral default.”
Falwell said the hiring should not be considered an endorsement:
The Rev. Jerry Falwell, chancellor of the Lynchburg university, said he has not endorsed a candidate + O’Donnell’s appointment should not be interpreted as a signal that he is backing McCain …”Senator McCain is getting a real winner + I’m sure Brett will be a great help to him,” Falwell said. “He’s getting Brett at the peak of his production.”
McCain also delivered the commencement address at Liberty University this summer.

20.Nov.2006 Draconian Anti-Piracy Law Looms Over Australia - kdawson 341 - ccozan of a law being rushed through the Australian legislature that would criminalize great swaths of the citizenry.
The Internet Industry Association of Australia is posting warning scenarios spelling out how far-reaching this law would be.
From the release:
"A family who holds a birthday picnic in a place of public entertainment (for example, the grounds of a zoo) and sings 'Happy Birthday' in a manner that can be heard by others,
risks an infringement notice carrying a fine of up to $1,320.
If they make a video recording of the event, they risk a further fine for the possession of a device for the purpose of making an infringing copy of a song...
The US Free Trade Agreement does not require Australia to go down this path + neither US nor European law contain such far-reaching measures.
We are at a total loss to understand how this policy has developed,
who is behind it and
why there is such haste in enacting it into law
— with little if any public debate."

he believes his computer simulations show a similar effect from deliberate injection of sulfur into the atmosphere by humans.

We are already engaged in an uncontrolled experiment by injecting greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.'"
From the article:
"'It was meant to startle the policy makers,' said [Crutzen].
'If they don't take action much more strongly than they have in the past,
then in the end we have to do experiments like this.' ... Serious people are taking Crutzen's idea seriously."

In prior email correspondence between the lawyers Ms. Schwartz's attorney had offered to withdraw the counterclaim if the RIAA's lawyer could show him legal authority that its assertion was impermissible, saying 'I wouldn't want to get into motion practice over a mere formality.'

19.Nov.2006 at 6:07 pm Let’s not forget that the earliest WRITTEN stories of wildmen date back to UR —
_2000 BC — if you’re familiar with Enkidu from the epic of Gilgamesh.
Art with such depictions dating from various periods of time aren’t exactly rare in different parts of Europe and the Middle East.
I’m surprised that no one’s raised the hypertrichosis angle — remember Jojo the Dog-Faced Boy?
A history of tanning
Think of the Baroque paintings that graced the pages of your art history book at school. You'll probably remember seeing plump, white ladies posing naked on comfy armchairs.
Those were the days when a lighter shade of pale was the thing. Today, most women would die of embarrassment should anyone see them in their birthday suits after a bleak winter season.
But as recently as 100 years ago, the word "tanning" wasn't part of the vocabulary.
So, what happened?
- By the 1990s, more and more warnings were issued as skin cancer rates grew dramatically. Greater awareness was created in terms of the depletion of the ozone layer and its negative effects.
But while the use of sunscreen lotions became more popular, many people still chose to spend their days in the sun.
- At this moment in time, we know that Australia and South Africa have the highest incidence of melanoma, a dangerous type of skin cancer. We also know that sunbeds are just as unsafe as the midday sun and that the best way to protect yourself is to minimise your exposure to all forms of UVA and UVB rays.
- (Carine van Rooyen, Health24)

An 92 Familien mit berufstätigen Männern und Frauen haben Lynne Vernon-Feagans und ihre Kollegen untersucht, wie oft ein Elternteil mit zwei- bis dreijährigen Kindern sprach und welche Satzmuster dabei benutzt wurden.
Ergebnis: Obwohl die Mütter weit mehr mit den Sprösslingen redeten und wesentlich häufiger Fragen an sie richteten, orientierte sich der Nachwuchs an den Männern, etwa indem er deren Satzbau imitierte.
Und je größer der Wortschatz des Vaters, desto schneller schritt die Sprachentwicklung des Kindes voran.
Die Forscherin vermutet, dass Frauen die Kleinstkinder mit zu vielen Worten überfordern. Erst wenn der Nachwuchs schon älter als drei Jahre ist, übernimmt die Mutter die Leitung: Das Sprachvermögen von Schülern zum Beispiel hängt hauptsächlich von dem ihrer Mütter ab.

BG, simple question. What does the $100,000 wire transfer to Mohammed Atta mean if you think he didn't fly Flight 11 into WTC 1? I confess to being baffled on this point. Did they send him the money so he wouldn't pull of the hijackings that day?
I cannot see how this story fits with any of the conspiracy theories advanced by the 9-11 Deniers. Indeed, it seems to be an unconnectable dot from either side's theory, which says either it's not connected or it's nonsense. I think the latter.
12:15 AM apathoid said...
I agree. Even if this story is true, I don't understand why the CTers have embraced it. As you quite rightly point out, it's pretty much incompatable with MIHOP...
I always love it when CTers get caught supporting elements of the conspiracy that are mutually exclusive with their core beliefs.
In my experience, when called on it, they pretty much do what BG has done + the explanation makes even less sense.
No one is saying that ISI wired any hijackers any money. What that are saying is the ISI sent instruction to a UAE middleman (you remember UAE,the Bush Admin wanted to turn over management of several domestic port to a Corp HQ'ed there until Congress went Ape-Shit) who wired the 100,000 to Atta.
BG, what's the friggin difference? 100,000 still made its way into Atta's hands. If there were no hijackers, there was no Atta involved in 9/11. Why did he recieve the money? No CTer on Earth has answered this question..will you be the first? I am dying to see how all this fits into the masterplan.
4:34 AM apathoid said...
OK, further up you stated that the 100 large could have been compensation for being a "patsie". Lame.
If all these hijackers were patsies, this would mean that they are likely still alive. Well, where have they been for the last 5 years? Why have no journalists interviewed these poor, innocent gentlemen? Is the Arab media involved in the conspiracy too?
Has Al-Jazeera and Al-Aribya picked up on this story? Why not?
I'm just asking questions and demanding answers..
4:44 AM BG said...
Thanks for the question about what was going on with the "hijackers" on 9/11.
This really is an easy one. I'm not saying I can prove it. I'm not saying you are a fool or an enemy of you don't go along with it.
9/11, whoever planned it, was a sophisticated false-flag operation. In any false-flag operation one of the crucial components is to have the patsies. The patsies job is to be conspicuous and to be noticed prior to the events. The idea is that all traces to the real power behind the attack will be masked by the patsies.
The patsies may be intent on committing a crime. However, they almost always aren't aware of the particular way that they are being set up to take the fall, or the real dimensions of the event.
All of the "true" flight school stories, including the Moussouri non-sense falls in line with this setup.
So, the fact that ISI was involved in wiring 100,000 to Atta is evidence to a the "support system" to the "patsy" network.
Pat, I am stating the above because I believe it is a reasonable speculation based on the evidence. What I am saying is meticulously documented in Webster Tarpley book: 9/11 Synthetic Terror, Made in the USA. 6:18 AM

19.Nov.2006 O’Reilly: ‘Far Left Loons’ Are Linking Fox News With O.J. Interview On Orders From ‘Their Internet Masters’ - Judd -
On Thursday, ThinkProgress noted that Bill O’Reilly — trying to distance himself from Fox’s upcoming interview with O.J. Simpson — falsely claimed “Fox Broadcasting has nothing to do with the Fox News Channel.” In fact, the two entites have the same chairman (Roger Ailes), the same owner (Rupert Murdoch) and Fox Broadcasting regularly airs Fox News content.
Last night, Bill O’Reilly attacked the “far left loons” who are linking Fox News with the O.J. Simpson interview. According to O’Reilly, these people are “kool-aid zombies” who are “doing the bidding of far left fanatics who will do anything to disparage me and FNC.” Watch it:
Oddly, O’Reilly attacked the New York Times and CBS for not covering the story. Apparently, the appropriate response to an interview O’Reilly calls “a low point in American culture” is to lavish media attention on it. At least that is what Fox News is doing. Digg It! Transcript:
Hi, I’m Bill O’Reilly. Thank you for watching us tonight. The media reacts to the O.J. Simpson debacle. That is the subject of this evening’s “Talking Points Memo.”
The so-called elite media is tiptoeing around the fact that Simpson’s being paid millions to exploit the murders of his ex-wife and Ronald Goldman, murders he probably committed.
The New York Times covered the story in its business section. “CBS Evening News” didn’t even mention it for the first two days. But the tabloid press and cable news are fully engaged.
The far left loons are also out in force as their Internet masters urge them to tie the FOX News channel in with the Simpson situation. I’ve received scores of letters like this one from Fred in Indianapolis.
“Mr. O’Reilly, you are a man of principle. Since Fox News is sponsoring the Simpson program, will you sever your ties with Fox News?”
Obviously Fred is a bit slow. FOX News has nothing to do with the Simpson situation. And Fred doesn’t believe I am a man of principle either. He’s a Kool-Aid zombie doing the bidding of far left fanatics who will do anything to disparage me and FNC.

"BBC News reports that the UK Building Society Nationwide has admitted that a laptop containing account records of more than 11 million customers has been stolen from an employee's home. This story raises a number of worrying questions: The theft happened three months ago, why has the news only just been made public? Why was it possible (indeed, why was it necessary at all) to put data relating to their entire customer base on an employee's laptop stored at an employee's home? Why was the information on the laptop not encrypted?"
19.Nov.2006 9 Billion-Year-Old "Dark Energy" Reported - Zonk 84 - loid_void writes to mention a
New York Times article about the discovery that dark energy, or antigravity, was present at the formation of the universe. A team of 'dark energy prospectors' at the Space Telescope Science Institute theorizes that this may have directed the evolution of the cosmos. By observing supernova activity almost 8 billion years in the past, the team was able to study whether or not dark energy has changed over the millennia. From the article: "The data suggest that, in fact, dark energy has changed little, if at all, over the course of cosmic history.
Though hardly conclusive, that finding lends more support to what has become the conventional theory, that the source of cosmic antigravity is the cosmological constant,
a sort of fudge factor that Einstein inserted into his cosmological equations
00.000.1917 to represent a cosmic repulsion embedded in space.
Although Einstein later abandoned the cosmological constant, calling it a blunder, it would not go away. It is the one theorized form of dark energy that does not change with time.
Sean Carroll, a cosmologist at the California Institute of Technology who was not on the team, said: 'Had they found the evolution was not constant, that would have been an incredibly earthshaking discovery. They looked where no one had been able to look before.'"

Edward Bernays started his business life as a publicist.
While still in his twenties, he was part of the propaganda effort that drove the USA into in WWI (WWI.)
He personally advised several US presidents starting with Woodrow Wilson +
counseled numerous corporations + business associations.
Hitler's propaganda chief +
Nazi henchman Joseph Goebbels was a reader + fan of Bernays' writing
in particular Bernays' book "Crystalizing Public Opinion."
In this short excerpt from Curtis's film we see one example of Bernays at work.
Bernays was one of the engineers of the Cold War.
He perfected the technique of manufacturing a distant but ever-threatening enemy + then creating a constant state of fear by generating false news reports that endlessly re-stated + exagerated the threat.
The stated purpose of Bernays methods was to give those in power greater control over what he called "the mass mind."

Zugleich bekräftigte der Premierminister, dass es keinen baldigen Abzug der britischen Truppen geben werde.
"Wir gehen aus dem Irak nicht weg.
Wir werden so lange bleiben, wie uns die Regierung braucht."
Auf die Frage, ob die Invasion des Irak bislang nicht ein ziemliches Desaster gewesen sei, antwortete er: "Ja".
Die Schwierigkeiten ergäben sich jedoch nicht aus einer fehlerhaften Planung, sondern aus einer " klaren Strategie" von sunnitischen + schiitischen Aufständischen,
die von der Terrororganisation al-Qaida beziehungsweise dem Iran unterstützt würden.
Baker leitet eine Kommission, die eine neue US-Strategie zur Lösung der Irak-Krise aufzeigen soll.
Mehrere Politiker haben bereits darauf gedrungen, Syrien + auch den Iran - dem die USA die Entwicklung von Atomwaffen unterstellen - mit an Bord zu holen,
doch sind die Beziehungen zwischen den USA und den beiden Staaten angespannt, weshalb diplomatische Kontakte schwierig sind.
Auf höherer Ebene hat die Bush-Regierung diese zu Syrien sogar untersagt, da sie das Land verdächtigt, Extremisten und irakische Aufständische zu unterstützen.
Der syrische Botschafter Mustapha sagte, er habe der Baker-Kommission erläutert, was Syrien in der Irak-Frage unternehmen könne, und was nicht.
"Wir sind sehr ehrlich miteinander umgegangen. Wir haben ihnen erklärt, warum es in unserem eigenen nationalen Interesse ist, an einer Stabilisierung der Lage im Irak mitzuhelfen."
Blair verteidigt Irak-Einsatz
Abizaid zeichnete ein Schreckenszenario: Sollten die Extremisten nicht aufgehalten werden, würden diese die Möglichkeit bekommen, ungehindert Massenvernichtungswaffen zu entwickeln.
"Und ich denke, die Gefahren, die damit zusammenhängen, sind einfach zu groß, als dass man sie sich vorstellen könnte", sagte der General am Freitag.
Es war eine Rede, die offenbar auch dazu diente, den andauernde US-Präsenz im Irak zu verteidigen.
Denn Abizaid machte drei Hürden auf dem Weg zur Stabilisierung des Nahen Ostens aus:
Das arabisch-israelische Verhältnis müsse entspannt und der Ausbreitung des Extremismus Einhalt geboten werden, ferner dürfe der Iran nicht außer Acht gelassen werden.
Diese drei Probleme träfen im Irak zusammen, so der US-General.
Daher sei es wichtig, dort weiterhin auf eine Stabilisierung des Landes hinzuarbeiten.

18.Nov.2006 9 Billion-Year-Old 'Dark Energy' Reported - Zonk 15 - loid_void writes to mention a New York Times
article about the discovery that dark energy, or antigravity, was present at the formation of the universe. A team of 'dark energy prospectors' at the Space Telescope Science Institute theorizes that this may have directed the evolution of the cosmos. By observing SuperNova activity almost 8 Billion years in the past, the team was able to study whether or not dark energy has changed over the millennia. From the article: "The data suggest that, in fact, dark energy has changed little, if at all, over the course of cosmic history. Though hardly conclusive, that finding lends more support to what has become the conventional theory, that the source of cosmic antigravity is the cosmological constant, a sort of fudge factor that Einstein inserted into his cosmological equations 00.000.1917 to represent a cosmic repulsion embedded in space. Although Einstein later abandoned the cosmological constant, calling it a blunder, it would not go away. It is the one theorized form of dark energy that does not change with time. Sean Carroll, a cosmologist at the California Institute of Technology who was not on the team, said: 'Had they found the evolution was not constant, that would have been an incredibly earthshaking discovery. They looked where no one had been able to look before.'"
18.Nov.2006 Should Google Go Nuclear? - Zonk 125 - Baldrson writes
"One of the founders of the US Tokamak fusion program, Dr. Robert W. Bussard, gave a lecture at Google recently now appearing as a Google video titled 'Should Google Go Nuclear?'. In it, he presents his recent breakthrough electrostatic confinement fusion device which, he claims, produced several orders of magnitude higher fusion power than earlier electrostatic confinement devices. According to Bussard, it did so repeatably during several runs until it blew up due to mechanical stress degradation. He's looking for $200M funding, the first million or so of which goes to rebuilding a more robust demonstrator within the first year. He claims the scaling laws are so favorable that the initial full scale reactor would burn boron-11 — the cleanest fusion reaction otherwise unattainable. He has some fairly disturbing things to say in this video, as well as elsewhere, about the US fusion program which he co-founded."
18.Nov.2006 Scientists Regrow Chicken Wing - Zonk 72 -
"Unlike salamanders and lizards, most animals have lost the ability to replace missing limbs. But a research team in San Diego has been able to regenerate a wing in a chick embryo — a species not known to be able to regrow limbs — suggesting the potential for such regeneration exists innately in all vertebrates, including humans." From the article: "Manipulating Wnt signaling in humans is, of course, not possible at this point, Belmonte says, but hopes that these findings may eventually offer insights into current research examining the ability of stem cells to build new human body tissues and parts. For example, he said Wnt signaling may push mature cells go back in time and 'dedifferentiate' into stem-like cells, in order to be able to then differentiate once more, producing all of the different tissues needed to build a limb."

18.Nov.2006 The Web Fueling A Crisis In Politics? - Zonk 271+ - "The BBC is reporting that Tony Blair's outgoing chief strategy adviser fears the internet could be fueling a crisis in the relationship between politicians and voters. 'Mr Taylor said Mr Blair's online grilling from voters — and other initiatives such as environment secretary David Miliband's blog and Downing Street's new online petition service — showed the government was making good progress in using the Internet to become more open and accountable. But he said more needed to be done by the web community in general to encourage people to use the internet to "solve problems" rather than simply abuse politicians or make "incommensurate" demands on them.' 'But rather than work out these dilemmas in partnership with their elected leaders, they were encouraged to regard all politicians as corrupt or mendacious by the media, which he described as "a conspiracy to maintain the population in a perpetual state of self-righteous rage." Whether media was left wing or right wing, the message was always that 'leaders are out there to shaft you.'" Some credit was given to the Internet for high voter turnout in this month's elections ... how is that a bad thing?
