NATIONAL:



Black Community takes on Houston Police Department
High tensions between Houston’s Black community and local law enforcement overheated when Houston Police Department (HPD) Officer L.D. Smith, during a Jan. 8 traffic stop, used his department-issued taser on 23-year-old Robert McIntosh three times, handcuffed him, turned him over and shot him three times in the chest, taking his life.



Woman Becomes Quadruple Amputee After Giving Birth
A Sanford, Fl. mother says she will never be able to hold her newborn because an Orlando hospital performed a life-altering surgery and, she claims, the hospital refuses to explain why they left her as a multiple amputee. The woman filed a complaint against Orlando Regional Healthcare Systems, she said, because they won't tell her exactly what happened. The hospital maintains the woman wants to know information that would violate other patients' rights.



'CIA agents' face abduction trial
A Milan judge has ordered 26 US citizens, most of them believed to be CIA agents, to stand trial on charges of the 2003 abduction of an Egyptian imam. At least five Italians, including Nicolo Pollari, the former head of Italian military intelligence, were also ordered to stand trial.



Blackmailing Bush; how the "Dear Leader" duped "The Decider"
There’s no chance that the administration will persuade the North to "denuclearize" (the administration’s word du jour). Kim knows that the real objective of US policy is regime change and that guarantees that he will never give up his nukes. Instead, he plans to use the upcoming negotiations as a means of extorting more concessions from Bush and the allies. Next, he’s expected to demand electrical power from South Korea, additional food and medicine, and the light-water reactor which was promised by Clinton. All the while, his nukes will remain safely tucked away beyond reach; his only real bargaining chip.



Iraq's Death Toll is Far Worse Than Our Leaders Admit
There are three ways we know it is a gross underestimate. First, if it were true, including suicides, South Africa, Colombia, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia have experienced higher violent death rates than Iraq over the past four years. If true, many North and South American cities and Sub-Saharan Africa have had a similar murder rate to that claimed in Iraq. For those of us who have been in Iraq, the suggestion that New Orleans is more violent seems simply ridiculous.



Governor: Don't send Iraqi refugees to Ohio
Forgive me for linking to the Cincinnati Enquirer!!!



The Ed Schultz Show Is Owned By Right Wingers. Does It Matter?
Randy Michaels, born Benjamin Homel, ( was head of Clear Channel Communications, a verrry right wing company. In 2003, he contributed $2000 to George W. Bush. He joined Clear Channel when his company, Jacor, which syndicated Rush Limbaugh and Dr. Laura Schlesinger, was acquired by Clear Channel. Stu Krane was the former VP of ABC Radio and Premiere Radio Networks--and the syndication exec for RUsh Limbaugh.



US military tells Jack Bauer: Cut out the torture scenes ... or else!
While 24 draws millions of viewers, it appears some people are becoming a little squeamish. The US military has appealed to the producers of 24 to tone down the torture scenes because of the impact they are having both on troops in the field and America's reputation abroad. Forget about Abu Ghraib, forget about Guantanamo Bay, forget even that the White House has authorised interrogation techniques that some classify as torture, that damned Jack Bauer is giving us a bad name.



INTERNATIONAL:



Worldwide events mark ‘Israeli Apartheid Week’ - Israel News, Ynetnews
According to the organizers, the week’s goal was to “push forward the analysis of Israel as an apartheid state and to bolster support for the boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaign in accordance with the demands outlined in the July 2005 Statement: full equality for Arab citizens of Israel, an end to the occupation and colonization of the West Bank and Gaza, and the implementation of the right of return and compensation for Palestinian refugees pursuant to UN resolution 194.”



NKorea on "war footing" over US attacks
"The whole People's Army soldiers and the people will maintain war preparedness to the full, to deal with US imperialists' manoeuvres for agression. If the enemies dare ignite the fire of war, we will mobilise all our powerful combat potential, built up through the maelstrom of Songun (army-first) revolution, mercilessly crush the enemies and achieve the historic task of national unification."



IRAQ:



Uygur: Who's funding the Sunnis?
If this administration cares so much for the troops dying in Iraq, as they claim, why don't they investigate who is sending the money for the weapons that are killing over 90% of them?
If they don't do this, then it becomes patently obvious that they are using the troops as an excuse once again for their real agenda.



ECONOMY:



Hershey may cut 3000, workers say
The company is building the plant in Mexico as part of its three-year plan to trim the work force, realign operations and become more profitable. Hershey said it would close or downsize some plants and expand others, but officials did not identify the plants.



OP-ED:



Surge Toward the Truth.
The Kucinich Plan to End the War in Iraq



SCIENCE&TECHNOLOGY:



Trials for 'bionic' eye implants
US researchers have been given the go-ahead to implant the prototype device in 50 to 75 patients. The Argus II system uses a spectacle-mounted camera to feed visual information to electrodes in the eye.



HEALTH&FITNESS:



CFL Bulbs Have One Hitch: Toxic Mercury
Mercury is a potent neurotoxin, and it's especially dangerous for children and fetuses. Most exposure to mercury comes from eating fish contaminated with mercury. Some states, cities and counties have outlawed putting CFL bulbs in the trash, but in most states the practice is legal.



FOOD&DRINK:



Traditional Napa Cabbage Kimchi
This is the mother of all kimchi. When Koreans say "kimchi," this is the kind that comes to everyone's minds. Good either fresh or fermented, it goes with everything from meats to noodles. You will need a one-gallon glass jar or four 1-quart jars.



REVIEWS/INTERVIEWS:



Brainy Jazz Meets Gut-Level Expression
George Benson's 1976 mega-hit Breezin' helped kick-start "smooth jazz," that not-so-distant cousin of "easy listening." It also neatly divides the guitarist and singer's career into Before and After: Benson had been recording for more than a decade when Breezin' lifted him into the stratosphere, and most of those early records — including this spry date, which he recorded at age 23 — are more musically adventurous. Not surprisingly, they're also mostly overlooked.



HUMOR?:



Meet President Limbaugh, Vice-President Coulter
Another hilarious clip from FOX News' bound-to-fail Half Hour News Hour. Imagine for a moment what kind of country this would be with Limbaugh and Coulter at the helm. At the very least, you could bet your bottom dollar that President Limbaugh would encourage the government to negotiate prices for prescription drugs. Namely, Viagra and pain killers.
