Telegraph [UK], by Erin Conway-Smith

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/10/2012 8:58:23 AM

Cape Town--South African leaders issued assurances about the health of former president Nelson Mandela on Sunday night after the 94 year-old was airlifted to hospital having reportedly stopped speaking amid a deterioration in his condition. The Sunday Times, a South African newspaper, quoted an unnamed person close to the Mandela family as saying: "He has not been talking ... he is not looking good. It´s clear that something is troubling him." Mr Mandela, the country´s first black president, spent a second day at the Pretoria hospital where he is said to be undergoing tests.

Perhaps he is hearing the screams of the blacks who differed with him in Soweto that Winnie, his beloved champion (Michelle) chained tires around their necks and burned them slowly to death. Or the white farmer´s women and children as they were raped then cut up with machettes. I´m sure in hell he will have a lot to talk about then.

SOCHI, Russia — Leave it to figure skating and judging, where winning can be obscured by whining. Any sport without a finish line or clock or some definitive standard is subject to skepticism about the results. It has happened at the Olympics before, and now it´s happened at Sochi after Adelina Sotnikova skated away with the gold medal, the first for a Russian woman in the individual event.(Snip)Under the current points system, adopted after the judging scandal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Games, Sotnikova, 17, did exactly what she needed to come out on top.

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES -- New details are surfacing about the role Archbishop Roger Mahony played in the investigation of sexual abuse by Catholic priests. When Los Angeles police were investigating allegations of child abuse by a Roman Catholic priest in 1988, they asked for a list of altar boys at the last parish where the priest worked. According to a deposition made public on Wednesday and obtained by the Associated Press, Mahony told a subordinate not to give the list, saying he didn´t want to scare the boys who knew nothing about the investigation.

Jan Koum picked a meaningful spot to sign the $19 billion deal to sell his company WhatsApp to Facebook earlier today. Koum, cofounder Brian Acton and venture capitalist Jim Goetz of Sequoia drove a few blocks from WhatsApp’s discreet headquarters in Mountain View to a disused white building across the railroad tracks, the former North County Social Services office where Koum, 37, once stood in line to collect food stamps. (Snip)At 16, Koum and his mother immigrated to Mountain View, a result of the troubling political and anti-Semitic environment, and got a small two-bedroom apartment though government assistance.

Science Linking Drought

In delivering aid to drought-stricken California last week, President Obama and his aides cited the state as an example of what could be in store for much of the rest of the country as human-caused climate change intensifies. But in doing so, they were pushing at the boundaries of scientific knowledge about the relationship between climate change and drought. While a trend of increasing drought that may be linked to global warming has been documented in some regions, including parts of the Mediterranean and in the Southwestern United States, there is no scientific consensus yet that it is a worldwide

President Barack Obama, in town since Friday and fresh off a meeting with Jordan´s King Abdullah II, left the Sunnylands estate Sunday morning for a little more golf. He didn´t have far to go. The destination was Porcupine Creek, the private golf course owned by Oracle co-founder and BNP Paribas owner Larry Ellison. According to the Sunday morning White House pool report, Obama -- along with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos -- arrived at Porcupine Creek promptly at 8 a.m. to kick off the outing.

Edward Snowden used to be the most controversial American in Russia. Now it’s referee Brad Meier. The NHL referee born in Dayton, Ohio, officiated Saturday’s preliminary-round Olympic hockey game between Russia and the U.S. Russian hockey fans took to Twitter to express their displeasure with the referee’s decision to disallow a goal that would have put Russia ahead in a tie game, on the basis that the goal frame was dislodged when Russia scored.

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — It’s a day of golf in Southern California for President Barack Obama while the nation’s capital recovers from this week’s snowfall. The White House says Obama teed off Saturday at the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands retreat in Rancho Mirage with childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos. Obama is spending the weekend at the estate. It used to be the winter home of the late billionaire philanthropists Walter and Leonore Annenberg. On Friday night, Obama and Jordan’s King Abdullah II met at Sunnylands for talks largely focused on Syria.

SOCHI, Russia -- T.J. Oshie scored four times in the shootout and got the winner in the eighth round, leading the United States past Russia 3-2 Saturday in the thrilling revival of a classic Olympic hockey rivalry. Cam Fowler and Joe Pavelski scored in regulation for the Americans in the marquee game of the preliminary round. Jonathan Quick made 29 saves and stopped five attempts in the shootout. International rules allow the same player to take multiple shots after the first three rounds of a shootout, and U.S. coach Dan Bylsma leaned on Oshie, one of the NHL´s shootout specialists.

Geneva — The United Nations mediator for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, wrapped up the second round of peace talks here on Saturday without breaking a longstanding deadlock or setting a date for a third round, and urged the parties to think seriously about their commitment to the negotiations. Mr. Brahimi said the talks had broken down primarily because the Syrian government balked at his suggestion that the negotiators discuss both sides’ top demands early on, rather than spending days on the government’s demands. “I am very, very sorry, and I apologize to the Syrian people,” Mr. Brahimi, an Algerian diplomat who has spent

In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart. "There is a core of outlets that are pushing these stories out. Breitbart clutters the blogosphere with ´Alec Baldwin, he’s the Devil, he’s Fidel Baldwin,´" Baldwin claimed.

Calling into Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cheney declared the proposed cuts to be “absolutely dangerous” and “just devastating.” “I have not been a strong supporter of Barack Obama. But this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military,” Cheney said. ”They act as though it is like highway spending and you can turn it on and off.

Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it.

It has the makings of a royal mess for “King Barack.” Monday morning’s Supreme Court argument about the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases went badly for the Obama administration — so much so that the real question before the justices seemed to be how severe the EPA’s loss would be. The administration’s solicitor general, Donald Verrilli, pleaded with the justices to recognize the “urgent problem” of climate change, because the “threat to future generations gets worse” with each passing year. But as the argument played out, the court’s swing justice, Anthony Kennedy, made clear that he

Were he alive today, Richard Nixon would have to doff his hat to Barack Obama. Compared with how the Obama administration has swept under the rug the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012, Nixon’s attempt to cover up the Watergate burglary was rank amateurism. To be fair, Nixon’s team of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and Dean were not in the same league as Obama’s, which includes not only his cabinet but most of the national media and much of Congress. If a president were intent on covering something up—something big, such as an illegal gun walking operation to Mexico or a dereliction

He is appealing directly to Republican members of Congress to propose a bill on the issue, telling The Huffington Post that there are five House members and one senator “interested in co-sponsoring the bill” and he expects more to join on. Burkman acknowledges that normally, conservatives don’t like the idea of imposing policy on private businesses, but says that this belief is now “trumped for reason of great urgency or
