US abuses Afghans in secret jails: UN --Shir Khan says inmates are blindfolded, hanged from the ceiling and dogs are unleashed on them during interrogation. 20 Jul 2011 A new report by the UN shows the United States continues to abuse prisoners in secret CIA jails in other countries including Afghanistan. A UN inquiry says inmates are routinely forced to take off their clothes in secret CIA detention facilities in Afghanistan. The report also says many prisoners are denied access to lawyers and deprived of the right to visit their relatives. The developments come as a well-known Afghan prisoner named Shir Khan has said Washington still runs secret jails in Afghanistan despite US President Barack Obama's claim to the contrary.

July 20, 2011 by legitgov

Longest Polar Bear Swim Recorded--426 Miles Straight --Study predicts more long-distance swims due to shrinking sea ice. 20 Jul 2011 A female polar bear swam for a record-breaking nine days straight, traversing 426 miles (687 kilometers) of water--equivalent to the distance between Washington, D.C., and Boston, a new study says. The predator made her epic journey in the Beaufort Sea, where sea ice is shrinking due to global warming, forcing mother bears to swim greater and greater distances to reach land—to the peril of their cubs. The cub of the record-setting bear, for instance, died at some point between starting the swim and when the researchers next observed the pair on land. The mother also lost 22 percent of her body weight.

Polar Bear Cubs Dying: Forced to Swim Longer Distances 19 Jul 2011 Polar bear cubs forced to swim long distances with their mothers appear to have a higher mortality rate than cubs that didn't have to swim as far, a new study reports.

Previous reports have noted individual animals swimming hundreds of miles to reach ice platforms or land.

Stress-related condition 'incapacitates' Bachmann; heavy pill use alleged 19 Jul 2011 Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann (R) frequently suffers from stress-induced medical episodes that she has characterized as severe headaches. These episodes, say witnesses, occur once a week on average and can "incapacitate" her for days at time. On at least three occasions, Bachmann has landed in the hospital as a result... Sources who spoke to The Daily Caller said they did so because they are terrified about the impact the condition could have on Bachmann's performance if she actually became president. "It's a careful choice of words I used: 'incapacitated,'" the adviser says.

Cain: I'd Attack Iran if It 'Messes with Israel' 18 Jul 2011 Republican presidential candidate [sociopath] Herman Cain says he would attack Iran to prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons or to respond to aggression against Israel. Asked if he agreed with former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton's contention that the "only realistic alternative... is to use force preemptively against Iran's nuclear weapons [sic] program" since diplomacy has failed, Mr. Cain said he did, with one caveat. "There would be some other pieces of information I would need before I gave that order, but I'm saying that would be Option B," Mr. Cain said during an interview with editors and reporters at The Washington Times.

Heat wave hardest on nation's poorest communities

July 18, 2011 by legitgov

Heat wave hardest on nation's poorest communities 18 Jul 2011 With much of the nation in the grip of a broiling heat wave, few people are hit as hard as the poor, and few places are poorer than the ramshackle communities along the Texas-Mexico border known as "colonias." The misery was widespread Monday, with the worst conditions blanketing a broad band from Texas to Minnesota and Dakotas. Seventeen states issued heat watches, warnings or advisories. And the heat index easily surpassed 100 degrees in many places: 126 in Newton, Iowa; 120 in Mitchell, S.D.; and 119 in Madison, Minn... In towns large and small, the withering heat was cruelest to those who could not afford air conditioning.
