Bush backs amnesty for Colombian terrorists
Inter Press Service | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"A Colombian proposal to amnesty leaders of right-wing paramilitary groups responsible for some of the worst massacres of the country's decades-long civil war has been strongly assailed by a major U.S. human-rights researcher. In a release issued by Human Rights Watch (HRW), Robin Kirk, the author of More Terrible Than Death: Massacres, Drugs and America's War in Colombia, called on the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush to cut off aid to the South American country if the proposal is adopted. ... The Bush administration, Uribe's biggest foreign booster, has not commented publicly on the proposal, but the New York Times reported Monday that it had provided advice to Bogotá on drafting legislation that would implement the scheme's main components."

News Corporation | Submitted by: Tim Howard
"Two Queensland hospitals are being sued for $2.5 million after an alleged series of medical bungles left a man without his legs. Glenn Nutter, who also lost five of his fingers, claims his shocking injuries were caused when medical staff failed to correctly diagnose his condition and then administered excessive amounts of an anaesthetic drug that had devastating side-effects. The 42-year-old former mining industry worker is suing Mount Isa Base Hospital and Cairns Base Hospital for negligence over the 1998 incident, when doctors allegedly failed to diagnose a potentially lethal streptococcal infection quickly enough. ... It is further alleged doctors later administered 500mg of the drug thiopentone, causing Mr Nutter to suffer up to seven heart attacks within three minutes of being injected."

Galileo on kamikaze mission
galileo.jpl.nasa.gov | Submitted by: JJ
"In the end, the Galileo spacecraft will get a taste of Jupiter before taking a final plunge into the planet's crushing atmosphere, ending the mission on Sunday, Sept. 21. ... The spacecraft has been purposely put on a collision course with Jupiter to eliminate any chance of an unwanted impact between the spacecraft and Jupiter's moon Europa, which Galileo discovered is likely to have a subsurface ocean. ... Although scientists are hopeful to get every bit of data back for analysis, the likelihood of getting anything is unknown because the spacecraft has already endured more than four times the cumulative dose of harmful jovian radiation it was designed to withstand. The spacecraft will enter an especially high-radiation region again as it approaches Jupiter."

Disneyland irritating downwind neighbors
Orange County Weekly | Submitted by: juanholmes
"William Fitzgerald says his neighborhood looks like a 'war zone.' Every night from June to August -- as well as weekends and holidays during the off-season -- the nearby Disneyland Resort sets off a massive fireworks display. Within minutes, a 100-foot-tall cloud of smoke rolls through the streets and homes in Fitzgerald’s neighborhood. ... 'Our estimates are 200 rounds going off each night,' Fitzgerald said. 'Afterward, you are blanketed in a big smoke cloud for 10 or 15 minutes. Every piece of exposed metal on my property is rusted. This sulfuric acid is very corrosive. You can see lines on the cars where the paint has peeled away. Common sense tells you not to set off fireworks every day in a heavily populated area where the smoke hurts children and people with asthma.'"
