    COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Cobb County is telling a Kennesaw family to apply for permission to park their kids' cars in their own driveway. The Oviedo family got a notice of violation for having four cars in the driveway. The family has relatives visiting and two kids home from college. "I am angry. I am beyond angry. I don't see how the government can tell me whose cars I can park in my own driveway," said Kim Oviedo. They got a visit Friday from code enforcement, acting on an anonymous complaint. The neighborhood is zoned an Open Space Community. A...

    The bizarre behaviour of the quantum world — with objects existing in two places simultaneously and light behaving as either waves or particles — could result from interactions between many 'parallel' everyday worlds, a new theory suggests. “It is a fundamental shift from previous quantum interpretations,” says Howard Wiseman, a theoretical quantum physicist at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, who together with his colleagues describes the idea in Physical Review X1. Theorists have tried to explain quantum behaviour through various mathematical frameworks. One of the older interpretations envisages the classical world as stemming from the existence of many simultaneous quantum...

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced on Tuesday that it plans to ban the sale of “the most toxic rat and mouse poisons, as well as most loose bait and pellet products” to residential customers. The goal is to better protect children, pets and wildlife. “These changes are essential to reduce the thousands of accidental exposures of children that occur every year from rat and mouse control products and also to protect household pets,” said Steve Owens, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention. The EPA also will require that all rat and mouse poisons

    WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama's winning coalition from 2008 has crumbled and his core backers are dispirited. It's now Republicans who stand to benefit from an electorate that's again craving change. Nearly two years after putting Obama in the White House, one-quarter of those who voted for the Democrat are defecting to the GOP or considering voting against the party in power this fall. Just half of them say they definitely will show up Nov. 2, according to an Associated Press-Knowledge Networks poll released two weeks before Obama's first midterm elections.

    Israel National News ^ | 9/26/09 | Nissan Ratzlav-Katz
    ( A recent children's television program broadcast from Gaza teaches Muslim Arab children several different vocabulary words for "slaughtering" the Jews in the Land of Israel. The theme is hardly new for the Hamas-run station. Al-Aqsa TV broadcasts a children's program called "Tomorrow's Pioneers" featuring a live child actor and an adult actor dressed in an animal costume. The current "animal" co-host is Nassur the Bear, introduced earlier this year, who follows in the footsteps of Nahoul the Bee, Assoud the Rabbit, and Farfour, who was a Mickey Mouse lookalike. Themes promoted by all the characters include Islamic triumphalism, anti-Semitism,...

    As the title implies, it appears more and more that our Constitutional Republic is becoming more corrupt by the day through back-room bribes and under-handed dealings regarding the Senate "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" package. Currently, the Senate and the Executive Branch is efforting to force this legislation that will completely negate our system of justice by undermining our legal immigrations system and giving "special treatment" (amnesty) to those who have wait their turn. I have long fought against "illegal immigration" in many ways and for many years. But I never believed that our Fedgov would so actively work to undermine what...

    Riots in Nigeria leave many dead Police have struggled to keep a lid on the violence At least 20 people are believed to have died in a second day of violence in the southern Nigerian city of Onitsha.

Eyewitnesses spoke of streets "littered with bodies" as thousands of Muslims were said to be fleeing the city. Danish cartoon protests in the north led to sectarian clashes which have seen dozens of deaths in four cities. On Wednesday,...

Henderson lost her temper when she logged on to her computer and spotted this headline: ``New Orleans Dolphins Find New Home.'' She knew the dolphins actually came from a hurricane-ravaged marine park in Gulfport, not New Orleans. The headline writer's error reinforced her belief -...

    CAMP SLAYER, Iraq — Wherever there is an Army camp, extra duty is a given. With hundreds of Iraqis and other nationals hired to do a myriad of jobs on this camp, there is a need for soldiers to escort them while ensuring security for American interests is maintained. Like many things involving the Army, there is a list — a duty roster — directing soldiers to show up and perform an assigned task. The 69th Signal Company GIs are no exception to being tasked. Just ask a pair of the company’s specialists — Mark Burke and Christopher Hughes. Two...
