Engineered Cell Engine is Step to Artificial Life

 Very Awesome stuff !  A giant Baby step in Science !


WASHINGTON—U.S. scientists said they have taken an important step
toward making an artificial life form by making a ribosome -- the
cell's factory.

The ribosome makes the proteins that
carry out key business for all forms of life. Messenger RNA carries
DNA's genetic instructions to a cell's ribosome, which then cooks up
the desired protein. Every living organism from bacteria to humans uses
a ribosome, and they are all strikingly similar.

It is not quite artificial life, but an important step in that direction,
said George Church, a professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School,
who directed the research with a single graduate student.

"If you going to make synthetic life that is anything like current life ...
you have got to have this ... biological machine," Church told
reporters in a telephone briefing.
And it can have important industrial uses, especially for manufacturing drugs and proteins not found in nature.

Church stressed his research has not been published in a scientific journal,
the usual route for reporting such work. He presented it over the
weekend to a seminar of Harvard alumni.

Church's group is not seeking to make life in a test tube, but instead to make designer proteins in lab dishes

Pakistan seeks 'hardcore' Taliban

Good news , but yet to be confirmed , all journalists are banned from the area . I like the fact that they have put a bounty On the higher ups of the Taliban !


The Pakistani army says it is preparing to flush
"hardcore" Taliban rebels out of the Swat valley after regaining
control of the main city, Mingora.

"We are going after the
leadership and we are going to take care of all the militants in the
valley," spokesman Maj Gen Athar Abbas told the BBC.

Clashes continued outside Mingora but its centre was under control, he said
"We have been able to block the major routes and the entries, exit points of the valley," said Gen Abbas.

"So we are in a better position to flush out, to eliminate the main militants, the hardcore militants of the valley."

Pakistan has increased its reward for the capture of the Taliban leader in Swat, Maulana Fazlullah, to 50m rupees ($600,000).

The radical cleric is believed to be the architect of a two-year uprising in the valley aimed at enforcing Islamic law.

death toll in the no-fire zone soared from late April, with around
1,000 civilians killed daily until May 19. That was the day after

Mexico arrests mayors, police chiefs in drug war

Excellent ! Mexicos Government and Police force along with the Military have been Crooked for a long time , It is Hilarious to see these public officials rounded up like common criminals !

MORELIA, Mexico (Reuters) - Mexican troops rounded up 10 mayors and
a string of police chiefs on Tuesday suspected of links to drug gangs
in a western state, one of the biggest single corruption sweeps in the
government's drug war.

Soldiers burst into police stations and town halls to arrest 27
public officials in Michoacan, the home state of President Felipe
Calderon and the place he launched his army-led assault on drug cartels
in late 2006.
The officials included a judge and a former police chief who is an
aide to the state governor. The attorney general's office said all were
suspected of links to drug smugglers.

Local officials and police are often bribed or terrorized into
helping the well-armed gangs that move billions of dollars of narcotics
into the United States every year.
The town of Uruapan, where the mayor was arrested on Tuesday, made
headlines early in the drug war in 2006 when hitmen dumped five human
heads on the dance floor of a bar.

Pakistan Taliban Says It Will Stop Fighting in Swat Valley

Really ? The Taliban will stop fighting as to allow people to RETURN to the Area ?  Sure , sounds good to me !  As long as you don't mind being used as a Human Shield !
  who the hell are these guys kidding !

The Taliban says it will stop attacking security forces in the main city of Pakistan's northwestern Swat Valley.

Spokesman Muslim Khan says militants will stop their resistance in
Swat's main town of Mingora out of concern for the safety of civilians
and their property.

Khan did not describe the fighting as a
cease-fire. He says the Taliban will not create any obstacles for
civilians wishing to return to the area.
The Pakistani army says about 1,100 militants and at least 63 soldiers have been killed in the offensive. 

North Korea fires more rockets, says U.S.

North Korea is Definitely up to no good , the antagonistic stance they are taking will get them results , but
probably not the results they were hoping for !   I'm guessing there will be an onslaught of sanctions leveled against them !

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea, defiant in the face of international
condemnation of its latest nuclear test, fired two short-range missiles
off its east coast on Tuesday and accused the United States of plotting
against its government.

In a move certain to compound tensions in the region, South Korea
said it would join a U.S.-led initiative to intercept ships suspected
of carrying weapons of mass destruction, something Pyongyang has warned
it would consider a declaration of war.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency quoted a government source in Seoul
as saying the North had test-fired one surface-to-air and one
surface-to-ship missile off of its east coast. The missiles had a range
of about 130 km (80 miles).

The North fired off three short-range missiles on Monday.

Monday's nuclear test, the North's second after one in 2006, drew sharp rebuke from regional powers, and U.S. President Barack Obama called Pyongyang's atomic arms program a threat to international security.

Rival's genitals chopped off

Talk about taking matters into your own hands ! The man was way to kind !
the Straitstimes
STRASBOURG - A FRENCH policeman has been charged with 'a barbarous act of torture and mutilation' after he lopped off his wife's lover's genitals with a box cutter, Strasbourg prosecutors said on Monday.

The 43-year-old father-of-five faces a maximum of 30 years in jail and is on suicide watch after handing himself in to his colleagues following Saturday's attack, according to officials involved in the inquiry.

According to prosecutors, the gendarme went over to his wife's lover's house in the eastern town of Reichshoffen, knocked the 54-year-old senseless, dragged him into his garage and emasculated him.

The policeman told neighbours to call an ambulance then surrendered himself to fellow officers.

An initial psychiatric report concluded that he acted in cold blood, and recommended that he be detained in a psychiatric facility. -- AFP

AL Gore you truly are a JACKASS !

Gore, others urge CEOs to back climate change deal
Blah , Blah , Blah !  It is so tiring to hear this same old B.S. , Time after time it has been disproved and every time Al Gore pipes up Again !  If he did not have so much to gain through his business dealings , It might be a different story ! But really , it is just another Liberal , AssMonkey trying to make a Buck at the peoples expense , all the time pushing an agenda very few people believe in !
   Al gore You truly are a JACKASS !

COPENHAGEN (AP) — Climate-change heavyweights U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon
and Nobel prize winner Al Gore urged more than 500 business leaders on
Sunday to lend their corporate muscle to reaching a global deal on
reducing greenhouse gases.

The CEOs of PepsiCo, Nestle, BP and
other of the world's major businesses began meeting in Copenhagen,
where politicians will gather in December to negotiate a new
U.N.-brokered climate treaty.

Despite the global financial
crisis, both Ban and Gore said there was no time for delay in hashing
out the specifics of how to cut greenhouse gases that contribute to
warming the planet.

"We have to do it this year. Not next year.
This year," Gore said. "The clock is ticking, because Mother Nature
does not do bailouts."

The three-day World Business Summit on
Climate Change is a precursor to the negotiations to determine what
will succeed the Kyoto climate treaty that expires in 2012.

to pour trillions of dollars into fossil-fuel subsidies is like
investing in subprime real estate," Ban said. "Our carbon-based
infrastructure is like a toxic asset that threatens the portfolio of
global goods, from public health to food security."

A new global
warming treaty would build on the Kyoto treaty's mixed success in
requiring that 37 industrialized nations reduce greenhouse gas
emissions an average of 5 percent below 1990 levels by 2012.

Eleven die in stampede at Morocco concert

There is something about a Soccer Stadium outside the united states , people are alwys being killed at them ! whether at a Soccer match or a concert !

RABAT (Reuters) - Eleven people were killed in a stampede at a stadium in the Moroccan capital Rabat overnight when thousands of spectators hurried to leave at the end of a concert wrapping up the city's landmark music festival.

The stampede caused a fence to give way, killing five women, two teenagers and four men. Forty people were injured, eight of them seriously.

The victims were among 70,000 spectators at a concert by Moroccan pop star Abdelaziz Stati at the Hay Nahda soccer stadium in Rabat.

U.S., Afghan forces kill 60 in drug raid: military

Aw ! Now the Taliban is not going to have as much money to import their Goats for those crazy weekend Parties !  Maybe they maybe they will settle for Sheep instead !

KABUL (Reuters) - U.S. and Afghan forces have killed 60 militants,
almost half in air strikes, and seized one of the country's largest
ever drug caches over a four-day operation in southern Helmand
province, the U.S. military said on Saturday.

The military had said earlier in the operation that 34 militants had been killed.

The troops were fighting for control of Loy Cherah Bazaar in
Helmand's Marjeh city, where they found 75 tonnes of poppy seeds, more
than 17 tonnes of morphine, opium and heroin, and caches of weapons and
equipment, the military said in a statement.

Rebels rush to Mogadishu, residents fear more bloodshed

Though I feel for the Innocent people of Somalia , Most of which have fled the country ,  I have no pity for what happens there !  Somalia has been handed , several times , a new lease on a calm country ! They have continuously pissed it away ! They have no respect for life !   Somalia will most definitely fall to radical Muslims , And the rest of the world will watch ( Nobody Wants any part of this one ), we only have to figure out how to stop them from spreading their Disease outside of the little Cesspool that is Somalia !

MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Rebel reinforcements rushed to Mogadishu
Saturday to confront a government offensive after one of the bloodiest
days of combat in the Somali capital in months.

"The fighting in Mogadishu will intensify the coming days," an opposition source said.
At least 45 people were killed and 200 wounded Friday in clashes between Islamist insurgents and pro-government forces.

Neighboring states and Western governments fear Somalia, which has
been mired in civil war for 18 years, could become a haven for
militants linked to al Qaeda unless the new government can defeat them.

Islamist insurgents took up arms in 2007 to drive out invading
Ethiopian troops propping up a Western-backed government which failed
to wield any control over swathes of the Horn of Africa nation.

Since then, fighting has killed at least 17,700 civilians and driven
more than 1 million from their homes. About 3 million Somalis survive
on emergency food aid.

The United Nations refugee agency UNHCR says 49,000 people have fled fighting in Mogadishu in the past two weeks.

Al Shabaab, which Washington says has close ties to al Qaeda, and
Islamist guerrilla group Hizbul Islam have been spearheading attacks on
the government, allied militia and African Union peacekeepers.

Senators express outrage over Chinese drywall

Another Fuck China Moment !

How about stopping the Import of Chinese materials , getting to the Bottom of it should be easy , just stop importing their CRAP !
 It may sound a little far fetched , but I begin to wonder if China Knows that it is Importing tainted materials and goods to the U.S !  It has happened more than once ! and nothing more than a slap on the wrist has been dealt to them ! Cyber warfare , tainted Materials , crap , and more crap ! Enough is Enough !  If this Administration was concerned more with the well being of it's Employers ( WE the people ) then they were with selling out this country ! they would Stop the import of Chinese goods !


Several U.S. senators expressed outrage over problems associated
with Chinese drywall during a Senate subcommittee hearing Thursday.

got a problem here and we’ve gotta get to the bottom of it,” said Sen.
Bill Nelson, D-Florida, who has been at the forefront of the
investigation into problems said to be associated with the material.

Mark Warner, D-Va., expressed outrage over a federal toxicologist’s
comment that government investigators have felt sick after a few
minutes of being inside a home with Chinese drywall.

“I fear that we may just be at the tip of the iceberg on what could be a natural and national disaster,” he said.

Senate Subcommittee on Consumer Protection, Product Safety and
Insurance conducted Thursday’s hearing to determine what health and
product safety issues might be associated with the high-sulfur imported

A growing product liability crisis over the drywall may
include up to 35,000 homes in several states, with Florida being among
the hardest hit. Several senators said federal money will be needed to
deal with the problem.

Synagogue targeted in NY plot, four charged

And this morning they say that these guys are Muslims ( surprise , surprise )  It just goes to show you that these type of people still wish to commit harm against America ! 
 And Until Certain People in this country realize that This type of Terror is still a threat here  (Democrats ) and Start taking actions against it and the militants that spread the hate Within the U.S !

We will be subject to this from time to time !

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Four men were arrested on Wednesday in a
suspected plot to bomb a synagogue and Jewish community center in New
York City and to shoot at military planes with stinger missiles, law
enforcement officials said.

A joint release from the acting U.S. attorney for the Southern
District of New York, the FBI and the New York Police Department said
the suspects were charged with plotting to detonate explosives near a
synagogue in the Riverdale section of New York's Bronx borough.

The men were also charged with plotting to shoot military planes
located at New York's Air National Guard base at Stewart airport in
Newburgh, New York, with stinger surface-to-air guided missiles, the
statement said. Newburgh is about 60 miles north of New York City.

"The defendants wanted to engage in terrorist attacks. They selected
targets and sought the weapons necessary to carry out their plans," Lev
Dassin, acting U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York,
said in the statement.

The four men, identified as James Cromitie, David Williams, Onta
Williams and Laguerre Payen, were arrested after buying an inactive
missile and inert explosives in a sting operation run by the FBI and
other agencies, the complaint said.

"While the bombs these terrorists attempted to plant tonight were --
unbeknownst to them -- fake, this latest attempt to attack our freedoms
shows that the homeland security threats against New York City are
sadly all too real," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a
separate statement.

Man I love hearing that the Taliban are being spanked around by the Pakistani Military !

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistani soldiers have captured the main Taliban
stronghold in a district 100 km (60 miles) from the capital in heavy

The United States has offered Pakistan $110 million to help the
displaced and said it was trying to redress 30 years of "incoherent"
U.S. policy toward the nuclear-armed country.

The military said security forces had captured the village of Sultanwas in Buner district, where the Taliban  had built a stronghold complete with concrete bunkers.

"Security forces cleared Sultanwas last night after intense clashes.

Thai Underwater Cargo Mystery Deepens

cutting open these containers under water could be very messy if they actually contain human remains !
and it would also ruin any evidence that could be left  , that could be used against whoever did this !

The Epoch Times
Eight mysterious containers rumored to be full of human remains found
off the coast of the Gulf of Thailand will be kept underwater for
further investigation to determine their origin.

"Lifting the
containers from the sea is ruled out because it will cost a lot of
money, but we will be looking for the safest way to cut open the
containers underwater,” Pornthip Rojanasunan, director of Central
Institute for Forensic Science (CIFS), told The Nation.

Rojanasunan is head of a team of forensic experts looking into the
issue after claims that human remains were found near one of the
containers in Sattahip District, Chon Buri Province.

news reports of fishermen finding human bones in the ocean, a survey
was conducted by CIFS and the Thai Navy. Officials confirmed the
discovery of the containers on May 15. However, no human remains were
found in the vicinity.

Since then rumors have circulated
that the bodies of protesters from a violent crackdown in May 1992—the
so-called Black May incident—are inside the containers. The Black May
incident resulted in over 50 deaths, along with injuries and
disappearances of hundreds of protesters.

The families of those missing immediately appealed to Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to investigate further.

The prime minister stated in his weekly televised address that test
results indicate the containers may have been under water for more than
20 years, which would rule out the possibility of any relation to Black

A nice 5 to 2 win over Chicago ! All with a nice empty netter in the last minute of the game

Sri Lanka says wins civil war, kills rebel leader

Apparently , The Sri Lanka Military has defeated the Tamil Tigers !  Having finally moved in , they have killed Vellupilli Prabhakaran , the leader of the LTTE , now maybe everyone can find out how many civilians have been killed through the whole ordeal !

COLOMBO (Reuters) - Sri Lankan troops won the final battle in one of
the world's most intractable separatist wars, and put the island nation
under government control for the first time since 1983, the military

In the climactic final gun battle, special forces troops killed
Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) leader Vellupillai Prabhakaran
as he tried to flee the war zone in an ambulance early on Monday, state
television reported.

LTTE intelligence chief Pottu Amman and Soosai, head of the "Sea
Tiger" naval wing, were also believed killed, the report said.
Prabhakaran founded the LTTE on a culture of suicide before surrender,
and had sworn he would never be taken alive.

Army commander Lt-Gen. Sarath Fonseka said troops on Monday morning
had finished the task President Mahinda Rajapaksa gave them three years

"We have liberated the entire country by completely liberating the
north from the terrorists. We have gained full control of LTTE-held
areas," Fonseka announced on state TV.

The end of combat and Prabhakaran's death sent the currency and
stock markets to one-month and seven-month highs respectively by 0900
GMT. They had already surged at the opening in anticipation of the
war's end.

Bring on Chicago !

Obama says U.S. can't keep borrowing from China

I think Obama Just woke up from his drunken stuper ! He has just realized that he has sold Most of America to the Chinese ! Now he needs to figure out what to do when China calls on the note to be paid ! A little side note here ! I would personally like to thank the Obamasiah , For fucking up the United States ! My Children are now indebted to China for the Rest of their Lives ! Mr Obama , With all due respect , You need to pull your head out of your Ass ! Wake up and take a look at the Communist tide that is preparing to confront what is left of the U.S. ! Might I suggest that , While you are spending our money like a drunken sailor , Maybe you should pump some of it into our military so they can be better prepared to fight the little commies when they get here !

RIO RANCHO, New Mexico (Reuters) - President Barack Obama raised the prospect on Thursday that China and other nations could stop buying U.S. debt and said the United States needed to tackle its deficit to avoid long-term economic damage.

"The long-term deficit and debt that we have accumulated is unsustainable. We can't keep on just borrowing from China or borrowing from other countries," Obama told a town hall meeting event in New Mexico.

"We have to pay interest on that debt and that means that we're mortgaging our children's future with more and more debt," he said.

China is the single largest holder of U.S. debt and owned $744 billion worth of U.S. government securities at the end of February, the latest month for which data is available, according to the U.S. Treasury.

Obama said the debt situation would create greater economic problems if foreign countries like China lost their appetite for U.S. treasuries.

"What's also true is at some point they're just going to get tired of buying our debt," he said.

"And when that happens, we will really have to raise interest rates to be able to borrow and that will raise interest rates for everybody."

The White House estimated earlier this week the U.S. budget deficit will be $1.84 trillion for the fiscal year that ends September 30.

Obama has pledged to halve the U.S. deficit within four years despite implementing economic stimulus measures that will make it larger in the short term.

Words Censored by China’s Largest Search Engine

I know their Communists but Damn , Talk about being Paranoid ! when you Can't even look up the Phrase "Chinese Communist Party " In the Communist Country Of China ! You Might Have some issues !
epoch times

New Tang Dynasty Television (NTDTV) recently obtained a list of politically “sensitive” words monitored or censored by China’s largest Internet search engine,, as well as internal documents governing Baidu’s censorship operations. Topping the list is the phrase “Chinese Communist Party.” Phrases such as “withdrawing from the Communist Party” and “disintegrating the Communist Party” are also censored.

On May 4, NTDTV reported 13 categories of politically sensitive words, including those related to “counterrevolutionary” activities, human rights and appeals, the Tiananmen Square Massacre, Falun Gong, ethnic and race relations, military secrets, and organ harvesting.

Under the category of counterrevolutionary activities, censored phrases include “withdrawing from the Communist Party,” “end the rule of the Communist Party,” “dictatorship,” “one-party system,” “human rights in China,” “tyranny,” “ruling government,” and “brainwashing.”

In the Falun Gong category, other than words directly related to the practice, phrases such as “Nine Comentaries,” “The Epoch Times,” “Gao Zhisheng,” and “kidney harvesting from live people” are also on the list.

In addition, there is a special category for words related to the sale of harvested organs. This category shows the Communist Party’s fear of the consequences of harvesting Falun Gong practitioners’ organs while they are still alive.

Mexico drug violence rises on border despite army

Some real nice happenings south of the Border Lately , Though it has been very difficult to find the stories ! Recently you can only find out any info on Monday and Tuesday , Even when the Incident happened on A Friday ! Not much was said about the 7 to 9 bodies ( I've heard 20 but who knows !) Found in a septic tank recently !

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (Reuters) - Killings between rival drug cartels are rising again in Mexico's most violent city despite a massive army deployment that temporarily slashed the murder rate on the U.S. border.

Drug gangsters in Ciudad Jaurez who used to chase enemies in flashy black jeeps have lowered their profile but are still killing each other as 10,000 troops and federal police patrol the city, across the border from El Paso, Texas.

"Criminals are taking a different approach, using pistols not assault weapons and driving around in small, old cars to reach their rivals, ditching their SUVs," said army spokesman Enrique Torres.

The government says the army has cut drug murders by up to 80 percent since soldiers arrived in March -- but gangs killed 12 people on May 1 in one of the bloodiest days this year.

Mexico's drug war death toll is running at around 2,300 people this year, slightly higher than at the same point in 2008, even as the army makes historic seizures of weapons and cash and arrests top cartel leaders.
Seven people were tied up in black plastic bags and thrown off a bridge in the southern state of Guerrero this month. Police believe the victims may have been alive when they were tossed because the bodies had no bullet wounds or bruises.

Human cloning taking place in Middle East

Just wonderful ! I always figured that somebody would try to clone a human ! But in the middle east ? Oh Man , Can't you just see it , The Cloning of your friendly neighborhood Suicide bomber or Some retard like Osama Bin Laden , Hey how about Clone your favorite Martyr specials !  Or  , Happy jihad Cloning day , WTF !

An undisclosed country in the Middle East is hosting a human cloning laboratory.

A leading scientist in cloning has told a weekly Dubai-based magazine he has estabished a lab for human cloning.

Dr Panayiotis Zavos, the Cypriot scientist who is trying to clone a human baby for the first time, told Arabian Business the lack of anti-cloning laws in some Middle Eastern countries made the region attractive for cloning research.
Asked if he had a laboratory for cloning in the region, Zavos said: “The answer to that is yes.” He refused to disclose the exact location.

“My next efforts will be taking place in the Middle East because it is a lot easier an environment to work in. The Middle East is where I have to go as an opportunist, as someone who wants to do something. You go into the environment which is conducive to you doing something,” he said.

Dr Zavos added the Middle East’s patriarchal culture coupled with high infertility rates could prove to make it a lucrative region for future cloning.

According to Arabian Business in 2005, the UN General Assembly approved a non-binding declaration banning all forms of human cloning, which was backed by all the GCC countries, except for Oman, which abstained.

SEOUL (Reuters) - Reclusive North Korea, which rattled regional security with a threat to hold a second nuclear test, said on Saturday it would not hold talks with its wealthy South Korean neighbor because it "defiled" Pyongyang's dignity.

The North a day earlier dismissed an overture from the United States for discussions, saying it was useless to talk to the Obama administration because its "hostile policy" left it no choice but to bolster its nuclear deterrent.

The United States sent Stephen Bosworth, its envoy for North Korea, to Asia this week to rein in the secretive communist state after it raised tension with a defiant rocket launch a month ago and then threatened to step up its nuclear weapons program.

"There is no room for talks with the South Korea government group who publicly defiles the name of our republic and denies our entity," the North's KCNA news agency quoted a spokesman with its reunification committee as saying.

White House aide resigns over N.Y. flyover

As he should , and as for any Government official wasting American Taxpayers money !  You Idiot's , it is our money !   stop spending it like spoiled little Brats !

WASHINGTON, May 8 (Reuters) - A White House military aide who authorized an Air Force flyover of New York that caused panic among some people in the city resigned on Friday.

Louis Caldera said in a resignation letter to President Barack Obama , that the controversy over the mission -- a photo shoot of a jumbo jet used as Air Force One with the Statue of Liberty in the background -- made it impossible for him to lead the White House Military Office.

The flight over lower Manhattan for a photo shoot scared some New Yorkers who remembered the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001 involving hijacked airliners that destroyed the World Trade Center. Some people panicked and evacuated office buildings when the planes flew over.

Caldera had approved the mission. His resignation came on the same day Defense Secretary Robert Gates said in a letter to Senator John McCain that the photo shoot cost U.S. taxpayers as much as $357,000.

Venezuela soldiers seize oil service companies

Tightening his grip ! To say the least !   How about further Establishing Communism ?  Isn't that more like what he is doing !

MARACAIBO, Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuelan soldiers on Thursday took control of boatyards and other assets belonging to oil service companies in the latest step by socialist President Hugo Chavez to tighten his grip on the industry.

Earlier in the day, Venezuela's legislature approved a law allowing the nationalization of a group of oil service companies. Chavez said the takeovers would quickly start in the Lake Maracaibo oil heartland in the western state of Zulia.

"Tomorrow, we will start to recuperate assets and goods that will now belong to the state, as social property, as they should always have been," Chavez said, adding that thousands of workers would be taken on by state oil company PDVSA.

But members of a Zulia business group that represents local oil firms told Reuters soldiers seized the installations of 20 companies on the eastern side of the lake late on Thursday.

The law makes it easier for the government to later seize assets owned by service giants such as Halliburton and Schlumberger as state oil company PDVSA builds up billions of dollars in debts with contractors amid low oil prices.

The socialist president nationalized oil projects worth billions of dollars two years ago and is now moving against smaller service companies that the government has struggled to pay as crude revenues fell in recent months.

Pirates fire at U.S. Navy ship off Somalia

I find it disheartening when our navy will run away from a fight ! if these little asswipes called Pirates have the Balls to fire on a U.S. navy vessel even though it was small arms fire , They should have been blown apart and turned to fish food !  Stopping them is what you are supposed to do !
 Not letting them go !

MANAMA (Reuters) - Pirates have fired small arms weapons at a U.S. Navy supply ship off the coast of Eastern Somalia, the first attack of this kind since last year's surge in pirate attacks, the U.S. Navy said on Thursday.

The USNS Lewis and Clark was chased for about an hour on Wednesday morning by two pirates skiffs, but neither came closer than about one nautical mile to the U.S. vessel, the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet said in a statement.

The small arms fire fell well short of the U.S. ship which speeded up to evade the skiffs.

The USNS Lewis and Clark earlier served as a temporary detention facility for suspected pirates arrested at sea, but its operations are now limited to providing supplies to other U.S. ships operating in the area.

Somali pirates have increased their activities in recent weeks, defying the presence of international navies in the area.

There have been 97 attempted attacks on merchant vessels in the Gulf of Aden in 2009, 27 of which have been successful, according to the U.S. Navy.

In the latest incident, Somali pirates on Thursday seized a small Dutch vessel with at least eight crew in the Gulf of Aden.

North Korea seen readying for new nuclear test

Here we Go with some more B.S. from that wacky North Korea ! Readying themselves for another nuclear test ,and building another Long range missile site .
What is Hillary going to do now ?

SEOUL (Reuters) - There is increased activity at North Korea's known nuclear test site, a South Korean news report said on Thursday, suggesting Pyongyang is gearing up for a new test as it has threatened in response to tightened U.N. sanctions.

Impoverished North Korea, whose only nuclear test in October 2006 led to U.N. financial and trade sanctions, could be ready to test another nuclear device in a matter of weeks, experts have said.

"Underground nuclear tests are hard to predict and you can't tell when exactly a nuclear test would be possible, but we think the North is ready to conduct a test in a near future if it wants to," the Chosun Ilbo daily quoted a government source as saying.

South Korean authorities are monitoring increased and steady activity at the Phunggye-ri site in the North Hamgyong province where the North conducted the 2006 test, the newspaper said.

The North also appears to have stepped up construction at a new long-range missile launch site in the west that had been expected originally to be completed by the end of the year, the government source was quoted as saying.

Sinaloa cartel may resort to deadly force in U.S.

so Obviously the pressure is getting to the Leaders of the cartels !  Calling for "action" in the U.S. will not go over well with the Authorities here !   And one more good reason to stop illegal border Traffic !

Authorities say Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman, the reputed leader of the Mexican cartel, has given his associates the OK, if necessary, to open fire across the border.

the L.A Times
Reporting from Sells, Ariz. -- The reputed head of Mexico's Sinaloa drug cartel is threatening a more aggressive stance against competitors and law enforcement north of the border, instructing associates to use deadly force, if needed, to protect increasingly contested trafficking operations, authorities said.

Such a move by Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, Mexico's most-wanted fugitive, would mark a turn from the cartel's previous position of largely avoiding violent confrontations in the U.S. -- either with law enforcement officers or rival traffickers.
Police and federal agents in Arizona said they had recently received at least two law enforcement alerts focused on Guzman's reported orders that his smugglers should "use their weapons to defend their loads at all costs."

Guzman is thought to have delivered the message personally in early March, during a three-day gathering of his associates in Sonoita, a Mexican town a few miles south of the Arizona border, according to confidential U.S. intelligence bulletins sent to several state and federal law enforcement officials, who discussed them on the condition of anonymity.

May begins with 19 slayings in Juárez

The Mexico Military helped slow down the High Rate of Murders in Jaurez !

But they have not stopped them , and most likely won't .

El Paso Times

The violence in Juárez has not slowed down even as the city deals with concerns about a swine flu outbreak.

There have been at least 19 homicides already in the month of May in the Juárez area.

Efren Silos Diaz, 28, was found fatally shot in the abdomen at about 1 a.m. Sunday in colonia Nueva Galiana in one of the latest cases, Chihuahua state police said. There were six homicides Saturday and a dozen Friday.

Anti-drug operations also continue in the city.

Last Thursday, the Mexican army raided an indoor marijuana growing operation in a Juárez home.

Soldiers seized 565 marijuana plants grown in an elaborate operation including an irrigation system, chemicals to make the crop grow and a system to dry the harvest, military officials said.

The so-called narco-lab was found by soldiers using drug-sniffing dogs and other equipment, officials said.

Two other homes with indoor farming equipment were also raided.

There were no reported arrests.

Pakistan battles Taliban

No , Mister Taliban spokesperson , Pakistan is not trying to please us !
But they are trying to rid Pakistan of you !
  If they were trying to please us you would be incapable of talking right now !

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistani forces battled Taliban fighters on Monday as the militants denounced the army and government as U.S. stooges and said a peace pact would end unless the government halted its offensive.

The February pact and spreading Taliban influence have raised alarm in the United States about the ability of nuclear-armed Pakistan -- important in efforts to stabilize Afghanistan -- to stand up to the militants.

In the Buner valley, 100 km (60 miles) northwest of the Pakistani capital, security forces backed by helicopter gunships and artillery attacked militants in three hamlets on Monday, residents and security officials said.

"There's been heavy firing going on since morning. It's very scary. Troops are using heavy artillery and gunships," resident Nasir Khan told Reuters by telephone.

A military spokesman said seven militants, including a commander, were killed. One soldier was killed and three wounded.

The militants were also using about 2,000 villagers as human shields, the military said.

Amid mounting concern at home and abroad, security forces launched an offensive to expel militants from Buner and another district just over a week ago.

About 180 militants have been killed, according to the military, although there has been no independent confirmation of that casualty estimate.

A Taliban spokesman in Swat said elements in the military and the government were trying to sabotage the peace process to please the United States.

China Quake Survivors Face Intimidation, Detention

China never ceases to amaze me , they are so hell bent on controlling their people that the parents who lost their children in an Earthquake , can't even grieve their loss without facing "Detention " .
Epoch times
BEIJING—Survivors of China's devastating earthquake last year face detention and harassment if they protest over collapsed schools, corruption claims and other grievances, Amnesty International said.

While Beijing is pouring billions of dollars into rebuilding towns in southwestern Sichuan province flattened by the May 12 quake, the government also has waged a less public campaign against citizens who blame more than natural destruction for the many schools that collapsed, killing thousands of children, the human rights advocacy group said.

"By unlawfully locking up parents of children who died, the government is creating more misery for people who have said in some cases they lost everything in the Sichuan earthquake," said Roseann Rife of Amnesty in a statement emailed with the report released on Monday.

On the weekend, several grieving parents of Juyuan, where a high school building toppled in the quake, told Reuters their plans to mourn their dead children were stopped by police.

"The police and town officials told us that we should not make such a fuss," said one of the parents, Yang Rengui, whose son died in the school. "Now many parents dare not speak."
