    Emergency services are already preparing for how to deal with a terrible off-shore earthquake in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, off the west coast of America near California. They were just completing their four-day major emergency test run when a 5.2 magnitude quake hit Borrego Springs, San Diego County, in California on Friday. The mid-sized earthquake caused more than 200 aftershocks – some more than three on the richter scale - and could be felt from Santa Barbara to the Mexican border. Egill Hauksson, a research professor of geophysics at Caltech, said of the 5.2 quake: "It was the biggest one...

    James Biden isn’t a big name in the business of residential housing development, so what exactly qualifies him to work at a construction company and share in the winnings of a $1.5 billion project to build affordable homes in Iraq? If you said it has something to do with his last name, the one shared by his older brother Vice President Joe Biden, you wouldn’t be far off. At least that’s the guess of some Wall Street analysts who cover the Marlton, NJ-based company Hill International and think they’ve seen yet another sordid tale of crony capitalism. Hill has been...
  • In Palin's Past, the Personal Got Political; An Aide's Affair May Have Become Grounds for Firing

    WASILLA, Alaska -- Sarah Palin and John Bitney go way back. They were in the same junior-high band class. Mr. Bitney was a key aide in Gov. Palin's 2006 gubernatorial campaign. When she took office, she gave Mr. Bitney a job as her legislative director, and a few months later stood beside him at a news conference and praised his work. "Whatever you did, you did it right," she told Mr. Bitney and his team. Seven weeks later she fired Mr. Bitney for what her spokeswoman now describes as "poor job performance." What happened in between? According to Mr. Bitney,...

    For American trucker, Mark R. Taylor, of Warren, Arkansas, was a place to keep in touch with friends and co-workers from his days as a truck driver hauling the mail in Iraq and with fellow truckers in the United States. For Truck It Records’ recording artist, Joey Holiday, it was a place fans could come to see music videos and send messages to their favorite performer. That changed on August 21, 2007, when Taylor, a friend of Holiday’s, opened his MySpace inbox and found a message purportedly from Holiday claming to be a “Hysterical Video” using Taylor’s image. Suspicious,...

    PackerBoy | 10-3-06 | PackerBoy is a Colorado-based "high volume email deployer", according to its owner, Scott Richter. I think that means "spammer of the first order." On March 30, 2004, Richter's hilarious interview was aired on The Daily Show.I am trying to locate a Windows-playable video version of this interview. There are several floating around the Internet, but the ones I have seen have someone's subtitles inserted. I need a copy without the dubbed in subtitles.Any help would be greatly appreciated, and result in my prompt donation to FreeRepublic of another $100.
  • WSJ: Gunning for KPMG - Does Justice really want to repeat its Andersen blunder?

    A 9-0 Supreme Court rebuke ought to be a teaching moment. So it is amazing to behold that -- notwithstanding the unanimous recent reversal of its 2002 Arthur Andersen conviction -- the Justice Department may well make the same mistake all over again. We're referring to the news that Justice may indict the entire KPMG accounting firm for obstruction of justice and the marketing of legally questionable tax shelters. As Andersen's fate made clear, an indictment against a corporation is usually a death sentence, whatever the ultimate legal outcome.... The purpose of criminal law, we had thought, is to punish...
