On Oct. 30, 2009, the nation observed the first Cold War Patriots National Day of Remembrance, dedicated to those who served their country working in jobs relating to the nuclear weapons program. Sen. Tom Harkin chairs the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee, where The Charlie Wolf Nuclear Workers Compensation Act continues to sit since March 2009. While the U.S. Senate resolution for the National Day of Remembrance was approved by unanimous consent, a bill addressing problems in the federal program designed to help nuclear workers with what they say they need most — medical benefits and compensation for ...

Genuinely Sarcastic: Fighting to Live, Waiting Around to Die
There are those inside the walls in his workplace who have tried to force him out. More inside those walls who despise him for what he's done and long for the day where they get to pass his office and see him packing his personal effects into boxes, whereupon they shall stop and offer their superficialities and then scurry to their own offices and secretly celebrate what they will amount to a personal victory. Outside the walls, he has seemingly fewer friends and allies each day, to the point where it seems special when a supporter speaks up. The other day, one of Michigan's most trusted insiders told a tale of being ... market research, surveys and trends
Tense Times in Timor-Leste
The Irrawaddy  By MATT CROOKJULY, 2010 - VOLUME 18 NO.7 Ozorio Leque stands accused of inciting a riot in Dili, the East Timorese capital, on April 28, 2006, when he publicly berated the government before a mob went on the rampage, attacking the government palace. The crisis that followed over the next two months led to 37 deaths and the displacement of 150,000 people. One of the leaders of Colimau 2000, a resistance group comprising former freedom fighters, youths and farmers, Leque, 29, insists he was acting merely as an activist and that the real perpetrators of the crisis remain untouched. Meanwhile, frustrations among ... market research, surveys and trends


Poll: 80 percent of Americans think Washington is broken | McClatchy
WASHINGTON — An overwhelming majority of Americans think that their federal government is gridlocked by partisan infighting and turf battles and can't accomplish anything, according to a new McClatchy-Ipsos poll. Yet the anger and frustration with Washington aren't directed solely at either party and don't automatically add up to a tidal wave against the governing Democrats in this year's elections for control of Congress, the poll suggested. In fact, Americans tilt slightly against Republicans as to which party they blame more. They also give a 10-point edge to Democrats when ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Reuters AlertNet - Feisty Obama: "I won't stop fighting for you"
ELYRIA, Ohio, Jan 22 (Reuters) - President Barack Obama rejected criticism that he has spent too little time trying to generate jobs and vowed to keep working on healthcare in a speech that showed a feisty tone at the end of a tough week. "I won't stop fighting for you," he thundered in a campaign-style speech in economically sagging northeastern Ohio, remarks that provided a likely preview of the themes in his first State of the Union speech next Wednesday. Trying to shore up public support, Obama urged people to "stand by me, even during these tough times." He took on directly some concerns about his policies raised by ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
CRIME AND PUNISHMENT RECONSIDERED — Can a political upstart win the city's ...
In a city that continues to be plagued by violence, the office of the Baltimore State’s Attorney plays a pivotal role in deciding who goes to jail and who doesn’t. Thus there is probably no other elected official besides the mayor who has more influence over the city’s approach to crime than the current City State’s Attorney Patricia C. Jessamy. In office since 1995, Jessamy has been both lauded and criticized for her perceived independence from the police department and emphasis on innovative approaches like drug court. LOPSIDED VICTORY IN LAST ELECTION But that same popularity, her critics say, has been achieved to the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) today delivered the following statement on the floor of the U.S. Senate regarding the Iraq Funding Amendment to H.R. 2764, the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2008: “Mr. President, I strongly support the amendment offered by the Republican leader that would deliver vital funding for our troops in Iraq. “The underlying House-passed bill is not only irresponsive to the facts on the ground in Iraq, it is simply irresponsible. It fails to provide any funding for our troops fighting in Iraq and actually contains an explicit prohibition against the use of funds for Operation ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Postmodernism and Violence
The ability to laugh at violence provides a type of "anesthesia to undermine any moral revulsion we might feel about violence" (Corliss 76). Furthermore, the scenes at the narrator's office are shot in a flat style that lacks depth. The effect is similar to what Fredric Jameson terms "the waning of affect" (CLLC 16). Thus the flat cinematographic style along with the sarcastic tone of the voiceover in Fight Club emphasizes both the lack of morality in the characters and the sheer unexceptional and unremarkable nature of the violence. Violence begins to assume an innocuous demeanor because "in the ...

Tales of Frustration in Tech Support - What are your stories ...
I have a semi good one. FOr a month now we have sent out emails to our firm telling everyone that the weekend of the 6th of June, we would be turning off the servers while we re-cable the server room. That means no email, no connectivity to databases, nothing. It's off. So there I am on Saturday and one of our remote employees calls from Waco and I'm thinking, "If she says I cannot get email, I'm going to scream." Well it wasn't that. It was better! She decided to tell me the first thing that people love to do when you are working on a Saturday for maintenance reasons. "Hi! I know you are really busy, ...
