    Electric wands could allow future firefighters to extinguish flames with a wave of the hand, recent experiments suggest. Currently, firefighters use water, foam, powder, and other substances to tame flames. But a team from Harvard University's Whitesides Research Group has shown that electric fields can snuff out fires too (Snip) Based on this principle, the wand in the experiments essentially uses electricity to push the flame away from the burner, "detaching it from the fuel source, so it goes out." The scientists now want to move to suppressing fires both farther away and wider in scope by experimenting with the

    1. Attack World Hunger and Poverty as if Our Life Depends on It: It Does. Anchor our foreign policy in the compassion for the poor that unites all the world's religions. Reduce the debts of impoverished countries. Shift foreign aid from buying weapons to feeding people. 2. Champion the Rights of Every Child, Woman and Man. Make America stand for justice, not expediency. Stop turning a blind eye to governments that abuse their own people. Ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women. If punishing a foreign tyrant means,...

    AT the Church of God in Gray Court, South Carolina, Nicole Marie-Loretta Leonard has joined the funeral procession. She enacts a funeral danced in front of the service, waves a wand over the coffin, opens it and hits the deceased man on the head with a wand. By way of finale she throws the flowers from the casket at the bereaved family. She drives off in a burgundy Toyota with North Carolina plates. Police respond and pull Nicole Marie-Loretta Leonard over. She admits it all. It, says she, “felt it was the right thing to do at the time.”

    In Case You Missed It: Excerpts From RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman On FOX News' "Fox And Friends," 7/15/05 RNC CHAIRMAN KEN MEHLMAN: "Well, I think what we all know is this. We all know there's an investigation going on, we know that Karl [Rove] and the White House are cooperating fully with this investigation. And there have been two articles that are creating all this noise. One article last weekend was an article in Newsweek, which I thought exonerated Karl Rove in many ways. What it said was Karl Rove was not leaking anybody's name, he didn't know that name...

    WASHINGTON — Megan Watson, leader of Mainstream Moms, is so angry at military recruiters for invading schools to sign up unwary youth for combat in Iraq that she and her group launched an online movement, “LeaveMyChildAlone.org.” “They offer these trinkets to lure our children to enlist,” Watson said in a phone interview from her home in Bolinas, Calif. “This is very aggressive, demographic targeting to have conversations with our kids that should not be happening.” All branches of the military are falling short of recruiting goals as parents say, in effect, “Hell no! My kids won’t go!” Watson blasted the...
