Though CPAC ruffled some feathers by bringing pro-gay GOProud into the tent, such social inclusiveness didn't extend very far. Taking center stage on immigration were the Republicans' biggest flamethrowers , who issued dire warnings about the evils that immigrants could inflict upon the US. "I'm worried, because most of them are lawbreakers—in fact, most of them are criminals," Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) told conference-goers on Thursday. But former Colorado Rep.

Everyone rides bicycles for different reasons. If you ride cyclocross bikes then you are interested in the competitive level of biking. Cyclocross bikes are similar to road bikes except they are built to withstand much more due to the intense trails they go over.
Anti-corruption campaigners have called on foreign governments to automatically seize any assets held in their countries by the former president Hosni Mubarak or his family until it can be ascertained whether they are legitimate or not. Egyptian opposition groups allege that the Mubarak family, including his two sons Gamal and Ala'a, have been able to amass immense fortunes over the past 30 years through kickbacks and private deals.

The Business Secretary Vince Cable called yesterday for countries to work together on Mr Mubarak's assets.

A scientist at Colorado State University has developed a way to make everyday plants one of the first lines of defense in the war on terror. L ab work currently underway makes green plants turn white if they detect explosive, biological or chemical weapons in their environment. Imagine someone walking by these plants in an airport with hidden explosives -- and the plants changing color to alert security. Professor June Medford and fellow scientists on the campus of Colorado State University are now working with the U.S. Departments of Defense and Homeland Security to develop high-tech plants for use in airports and other public areas. "We actually modify the seed," Medford told Fox News, "and then it's a trait that is stable and stays with it forever.
Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi: 'I would do whatever was possible' Link to video: Iraqi defector Curveball: 'I had to do something for my country' The defector who convinced the White House that Iraq had a secret biological weapons programme has admitted for the first time that he lied about his story, then watched in shock as it was used to justify the war. Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, codenamed Curveball by German and American intelligence officials who dealt with his claims, has told the Guardian that he fabricated tales of mobile bioweapons trucks and clandestine factories in an attempt to bring down the Saddam Hussein regime, from which he had fled in 1995. "Maybe I was right, maybe I was not right," he said.
INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Colts are keeping Peyton Manning — no matter what it costs.
February 16, 2011 | By David Haugh | In the Wake of the News For perhaps the first time in its angst-ridden history of anticipation, the Cubs organization stands within hours of spending this year waiting till next year.

I still believe if the Cardinals meet Pujols' terms, say, during the All-Star break with a 10-year, $300 million offer that figures to keep him in St. Louis and thrill a baseball city, he would sign it.
American TV reporter Lara Logan "suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault" while covering the resignation of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak, according to a statement by her employer, CBS. Logan was separated from her crew at a mass rally in Tahrir Square on Friday and was surrounded by a large group of men and she was sexually assaulted and beaten, according to the statement. She was reportedly saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She eventually reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and went back to the United States on the first flight the next morning. CBS put out the following statement late Tuesday:
Republican strategist and Fox News commentator Karl Rove spoke out on skepticism among some in his party over whether or not President Barack Obama is a citizen of the United States during an appearance on Fox News on Wednesday night. "Within our party, we've got to be very careful about allowing these people who are the birthers and the 9/11-deniers to get too high a profile and say too much without setting the record straight," said Rove, according to a transcript of the exchange with Bill O'Reilly from GOP12. Rove also sounded off on a poll released earlier this week suggesting that birthers comprise 51 percent of those likely to vote in a GOP primary in the next election cycle. He called the survey from Public Policy Polling "a lousy poll" and said the figure "ought to be less."
Now while many critics aren’t a fan of the new Pagani Huayra, we think it’s a silver lining in the world of electric-cars, plug-in hybrids and hybrids. It’s probably not the best looking supercar out of all of them, but it sure will turn heads when you drive down the street or stand at a red light. Either way we know a lot about the Pagani Huyara now.
