Bush bans photos of soldier's caskets
Washington Post | Submitted by: harley
"Since the end of the Vietnam War, presidents have worried that their military actions would lose support once the public glimpsed the remains of U.S. soldiers arriving at air bases in flag-draped caskets. To this problem, the Bush administration has found a simple solution: It has ended the public dissemination of such images by banning news coverage and photography of dead soldiers' homecomings on all military bases... A White House spokesman said Bush has not attended any memorials or funerals for soldiers killed in action during his presidency as his predecessors had done, although he has met with families of fallen soldiers and has marked the loss of soldiers in Memorial Day and Sept. 11, 2001, remembrances."

Bush never scolded Matahir for antisemitic comments
Wire Services | Submitted by: Mean Gene
"An unrepentant Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad repeated Tuesday his belief that Jews rule the world, denied President Bush had rebuked him for it and hit out at Australian leader John Howard. Mahathir, who steps down at the end of the month after 22 years in power, told the Bangkok Post in an interview that widespread criticism of his recent remark that 'Jews rule the world by proxy' proved he was right. 'The reaction of the world shows that they control the world,' he told the newspaper... Mahathir said reports Bush had rebuked him were wrong. 'Certainly, he did not rebuke me,' Mahathir told a news conference after the two-day summit ended. 'All he said was that "I regret today to have to use strong words against you,"' Mahathir said. 'After that we were walking practically hand-in-hand.'"

Mirror | Submitted by: Stumblin Bob
"Vladimir Lenin is getting a fashion makeover. The legendary Soviet leader, embalmed in 1924, is to be given a new outfit that may even include a colourful new tie... His remains were originally clad in a Red Army military jacket, but he was changed into civvies - the familiar dark, sombre suit - just before the Second World War... The project coincides with the regular dipping of Lenin's remains into a secret chemical solution that keeps him looking lifelike almost 80 years after his death."

Geek killed in dumbass subway stunt
Toronto Star | Submitted by: Lydia
"Eric Alvarez of Harlem was found dead on the tracks between two stations in lower Manhattan at about 4:45 p.m. Monday, said Det. Carolyn Chew. While Alvarez was riding home from school, his friends dared him to climb to the top of the train, a practice known as 'subway surfing,' said Marisa Balde, a spokesperson for New York City Transit. He apparently had climbed the rear of a car and had reached the top when his head struck a steel beam in the ceiling of the subway tunnel, Balde said. Another train ran over the tracks where Alvarez had fallen."

Ships possibly sunk by gigantic methane bubbles
Wire Services | Submitted by: Reid Fleming
"Methane bubbles from the sea floor could, in theory, sink ships and may explain the odd disappearances of some vessels, Australian researchers reported on Tuesday. The huge bubbles can erupt from undersea deposits of solid methane, known as gas hydrates. An odorless gas found in swamps and mines, methane becomes solid under the enormous pressures found on deep sea floors. The ice-like methane deposits can break off and become gaseous as they rise, creating bubbles at the surface."

Scientists demo electrokinetic battery prototype
Canoe | Submitted by: przem
"With the help of two graduate students, the two professors were able to light a small bulb by simply squeezing a syringe of ordinary tap water through a glass 'filter' with microscopic-sized holes they call microchannels. They invented their 'electrokinetic' water battery by harnessing the natural energy that is created on a very tiny scale when a flowing liquid meets a solid surface, creating an electrical charge. Water forced through a microchannel results in the movement of positive and negatives ions in such a way that one end becomes positive and the other negative. The inventors are particularly excited by the fact the electricity is produced cleanly and involves no moving parts. The discovery could in a matter of years lead to batteries for everyday items such as cellphones and calculators being powered by pressurized water."
