Local 'Cash for Clunkers' Ignorance

In other words, the federal government is artificially increasing the scarcity of used cars and car parts, thereby driving up prices, instead of allowing the market to determine when their usefulness has expired. As usual, folks on the lower end of the economic spectrum disproportionately bear the burden of this program as the quantity of affordable used cars decreases.

Held In A Psychiatric Ward & Called “Delusional” For Saying 9/11 Was An Inside Job

Clare Swinney brought a complaint to the Broadcasting Standards Authority pointing out that TVNZ’s claim that Osama bin Laden carried out the attacks of 9/11 was an outright lie. Shortly afterwards, she was threatened and then incarcerated in a psychiatric ward. Following a week of compulsory treatment, the head psychiatrist told a judge that she should remain in hospital, as her belief that 9/11 was an inside job was evidence she was “delusional.” The judge agreed.

Taliban's attacks threatens to keep turnout low in Afghanistan elections

There have been at least five explosions in Afghanistan's capital as Afghans head to the polls to elect their new president.

The Taliban's threat to scupper the country's second presidential and provincial elections seems to be paying off, with voter turnout apparently running low due to fears of violence and reprisals.

Incidents in Kabul include a rocket landing close to voters, a suicide attack, and a stand-off between Afghan police and five suspected Taliban suicide bombers.

Some polling stations have been closed due to scattered rocket and bomb attacks, affecting the vote for Afghanistan's new President.

X-rays solve artistic mystery

This 1919 illustration was covered over with another painting in the 1920s by artist

N.C. Wyeth, but the color scheme was reconstructed through X-ray imaging.

Science fiction’s robotics laws need reality check

Large scale space construction tasks are likely to fall into the hands of autonomous robots.

Global War and Dying Democracy: The Revolution of the Elites

Global trends in political economy suggest that “democracy” as we know it, is a fading concept, where even Western industrialized nations are retreating from the system. Arguably, through party politics and financial-corporate interests, democracy is something of a façade as it is. However, we are entering into an era in which even the institutions and image of democracy are in retreat, and the slide into totalitarianism seems inevitable.

Israeli officials and spokespersons have been railing against a leading Swedish newspaper for publishing a report claiming that the Israeli occupation army murders Palestinians in order to use their organs for transplants for Jewish patients.

The Tabloid Aftonbladet, one of Sweden’s most popular newspapers, on Tuesday, 18 August, reported that Israeli occupation soldiers had been murdering Palestinian youngsters in the West Bank in order to extricate their organs and sell them.

Israel wrecked Arafat, crowned Hamas, and gave birth to Al-Qaida in Gaza

This week marked four years since the Gaza disengagement, and it seems that the Strip is becoming increasingly radical - that peace is more distant and the settlers who were removed from the enclave are more embittered. Did Ariel Sharon and the majority of the Israeli public that supported the move make a bad deal?

The settlers in Gaza won big time. They had two goals: to extract huge amounts of compensation from the government and to keep the issue on the public agenda as an open wound, as a traumatic and costly experience in the extreme so that all politicians who might dream of a similar solution in the West Bank would tell themselves that it is impossible.
