Australian cycling legend
'witnessed Armstrong bribe'

ABC News [Australia], by Quentin McDermott & Clay Hichens

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 10/14/2012 7:45:11 PM

Australian cycling legend Phil Anderson has been caught up in the fallout from the Lance Armstrong affair. The ABC's Four Corners program has uncovered evidence given in a United States court case suggesting that Anderson was present when Armstrong offered a member of an opposing team a $50,000 bribe to help fix a series of three races which carried a $1 million bonus for any rider who won them all. Armstrong won all three races and the bribe - it is alleged - was paid to the opposing team in cash. Armstrong has denied the allegation, and Anderson has told

Comments:
Sadly, when this is finally over, Lance Armstrong may never get back on his bike and ride again.

What next? Is somebody going to accuse Armstrong of causing the banks to fail? I really doubt that this happened as described. It's just easy to kick a guy when he's down. "Australian cycling legend"? I never heard of him.

ABC seems to be leading this crusade to destroy Lance Armstrong. Georgie Steffie was grinning from ear to ear as he reported the allegations.

It is beginning to shape up as another Liberal campaign to destroy a sport for the USA which of course is always unfair to other countries. In the end they may destroy the chance for any American to belong to a cycling team with USA sponsorship.

Of course there is always the take the focus off Obama argument too.

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/31/2014 12:34:50 AM     Post Reply
Seoul - North and South Korea traded fire across their disputed maritime border on Monday, with the South´s military saying it had responded to shells landing in its waters from a North live-fire drill. "Some of the shells fired by North Korea dropped in our area and our side responded with fire," a spokesman for the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff told AFP. There was no indication that either side was firing at any particular target. On South-Korea-controlled Baengnyeong island, close to the maritime boundary, officials said residents had been taken to shelters as a precaution.

Hobie Alter, who shaped Southern California’s signature surf culture by pioneering the mass-produced foam surfboard and later popularized sailing by inventing a lightweight, high-performance catamaran, died Saturday at his home in Palm Desert. He was 80. The announcement of Alter’s death was posted on www.hobie.com, his company’s website. No cause was disclosed. A self-taught design innovator and entrepreneur whose “Hobie” brand earned him a fortune, Alter was nonetheless a reluctant businessman who eschewed suits for cutoffs and was guided by his imagination above all else. “I’m making money producing

Seoul - North Korea announced a live-fire drill Monday near its disputed maritime border with South Korea, further ratcheting up tensions a day after threatening a "new form" of nuclear test. There was a swift response from the South Korean military, with the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) warning of immediate retaliation if any ordinance is fired across the border. (Snip) It is not unusual for North Korea to carry out a live-fire exercise, but it does not normally take the precaution of notifying the South in advance. "The fact that they have sent such a message to us indicates their hostile intention," said South Korean Defence Ministry spokesman

Elton John and his longtime partner David Furnish will tie the knot this spring,Furnish told the Las Vegas Journal Review. The couple have been together since 1993 and entered into a British civil partnership on the day it came into law in 2005. Their decision to take the next step comes just a few weeks after legislation passed in England to allow same-sex marriage. "We don´t feel the need to take an extra step legally. But since we´re committed for life, we feel it´s really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation," Furnish said. "We all live by example." The couple have two children together:

Socialist Anne Hidalgo to be

Paris - Anne Hidalgo, a Spanish-born Socialist, will be the first female mayor of Paris after an unexpectedly comfortable win in municipal elections on Sunday. Hidalgo, 54, had been expected to be run extremely close by her centre-right rival, former government minister Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, on a night when the Socialists took a beating from voters across the country because of the unpopularity of President Francois Hollande´s government. But Hidalgo emerged with 54.5 percent of second round votes in the capital, comfortably seeing off Kosciusko-Morizet´s challenge, according to exit polls. An old school feminist socialist,

North Korea Promises
‘New Form’ of Nuclear Test

Seoul, South Korea - North Korea threatened on Sunday to carry out a “new form” of nuclear test, a year after its third nuclear test raised military tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula and prompted the United Nations to tighten sanctions against the North. The North’s Foreign Ministry did not clarify what it meant by a “new form” in its statement, carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency. But Washington and its allies have long suspected the country of trying to make nuclear devices small and sophisticated enough to be delivered by intercontinental ballistic missiles it was also developing.

Political newcomer and millionaire Andrej Kiska won by a landslide in Saturday´s presidential run-off, preventing veteran leftist Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico from tightening his grip on power. A non-aligned centrist who made his fortune in the consumer-credit business, the 51-year-old Mr Kiska will be Slovakia´s first president since independence in 1993 without a past in the Communist party. "I want to re-establish the people´s trust in the office of president," Kiska said in a victory speech at his campaign headquarters in the capital Bratislava.

heart attacks in the ER

Washington - A simple test appears very good at ruling out heart attacks in people who go to emergency rooms with chest pain, a big public health issue and a huge worry for patients. A large study in Sweden found that the blood test plus the usual electrocardiogram of the heartbeat were 99 percent accurate at showing which patients could safely be sent home rather than be admitted for observation and more diagnostics. Of nearly 9,000 patients judged low risk by the blood test and with normal electrocardiograms, only 15 went on to suffer a heart attack in the next month, and not a single one died.

´Noah´ sails to estimated
$44-million opening at box office
Los Angeles Times, by Saba Hamedy    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/30/2014 3:36:04 PM     Post Reply
Director Darren Aronofsky´s biblical epic “Noah” sailed at the weekend box office as the film opened at No. 1 with an estimated $44 million in ticket sales. The film, which cost about $130 million to make, solidly met expectations, according to Paramount Pictures, which had initially forecast a $30-million opening weekend. "Noah" already has generated about $95 million overseas. “It was a fantastic result,” said Megan Colligan, Paramount’s president of domestic marketing and distribution. “I think the movie really surprises people and makes them want to talk about it.” “Noah” brought in a diverse crowd, Colligan said, a 50-50 split

Cincinnati - Pivotal swing states under Republican control are embracing significant new electoral restrictions on registering and voting that go beyond the voter identification requirements that have caused fierce partisan brawls. The bills, laws and administrative rules — some of them tried before — shake up fundamental components of state election systems, including the days and times polls are open and the locations where people vote. (Snip) Democrats in North Carolina are scrambling to fight back against the nation’s most restrictive voting laws, passed by Republicans there last year.

Friendly fire: Navy seeks ´dummy´
training missiles to shoot at pilots
Fox News, by Robert Gearty    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/30/2014 2:02:03 PM     Post Reply
The Navy is considering a novel way to protect its fighter pilots: firing live shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles at them to train them in evasive action and test aircraft missile warning systems. The shoulder-fired missiles in the hands of terrorists, criminal and enemy fighters pose a worldwide problem. Insurgents in Iraq during the war posted YouTube videos showing their deadly ability with the weapons against U.S. military helicopters. The Navy disclosed its intentions earlier this month in a little-noticed request for information. The request asks defense contractors if they can build a “missile surrogate” that would replicate the missile,

Duty to his country called U.S. Army Specialist Ricky Glenn Henderson to Afghanistan. Now duty to his family is calling him back to Texas, where he hopes to donate a majority of his liver to his dying Vietnam Vet grandfather. Henderson flew back from Afghanistan last week determined to give the gift of life to his very sick 62-year-old- grandfather, Rickey Homer. "The loss and the regret of me not doing anything would have outweighed this. I´m the firstborn grandson; I carry my grandfather´s name," Henderson told KLTV, the ABC affiliate in East Texas.

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well.

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or
