In House Races, More GOP Seats Are Seen at Risk

At least five more Republican Congressional seats are in serious contention, analysts said Friday, as signs that the Congressional page scandal are sapping the enthusiasm of a group essential to Republican victories in 2002 and 2004: religious conservatives.

Urgent action appeal for detainee facing deportation to torture

A message from Eleanor

Please write a polite letter to John Reid requesting that the UK does not deport detainee 'Y' to Algeria because of a deep concern for his safety and his human rights under international law. My heartfelt thanks to you if you can do this!

Oil-Slick PR Campaign

Polar bear and cubOil drilling is a dirty business -- and so is the PR machine behind it. While polar bears starve as critical ice pack shrinks, ExxonMobil is spending millions to fund front groups that deny global warming science. These groups have stood in the way of real action on the most pressing environmental problems of our time, rejecting overwhelming evidence and scientific consensus.

Tell ExxonMobil to come clean on climate change and stop funding groups that deceive the public about this important environmental issue.

Take Action



With all the talk lately about "woulda, shoulda, coulda", it's time to again remind our members of Congress that they have ALSO failed in the oversight of our runaway dictator under the guise of president.

Yet again this week, in signing the new Homeland Security spending bill, Bush felt obliged to attach a signing statement with what has now become a stock disclaimer reserving the right to interpret it "in a manner consistent with the president's Constitutional authority to supervise the unitary executive branch." THERE IS NO SUCH AUTHORITY!!!

The administration's own legal counsel now admits that these signing statements are INTENDED as an illegal line item veto, a stealth and profoundly unconstitutional seizure of power, an utterly blatant disregard of the authority of Congress to make law. And yet the president still is not confronted by the Congress he so belittles.

To confront the president. THAT is the first thing that must happen. And that is why it is so important that we get as much exposure as we can for the new Lie/Die TV spots of the Peace Team, calling the Bush administration out on their Iraq lies. First we must confront. And only then will the rest of our friends and neighbors see for themselves just how far Bush has gone to abuse the power intended by the founders.

By getting as many of the Lie/Die spots on the air as possible, and now 12 members of the Peace Team have already produced their own versions, we can get the word out that there ARE candidates with courage, who WILL stand up to the Bush administration. Only by standing up now and not backing down can we win the votes of those who also are troubled by the Bush lies, but who need to see our strength before trusting us with the necessary corrective power.


This alert is brought to you by the activism of Stacey Tallitsch, running for Congress from the 1st district of Louisiana. Stacey has shared his production of the new Lie/Die spot with other candidates, directly calling the Bush administration on their Iraq lies.


Please go to donations page now. You can see the spots playing right on the page above. Give whatever you can in these last critical 4 weeks of this Congressional election campaign. The future of our democracy is on the line. This is our last chance to take back our country from the dark side of dictatorial ambition. We must give it everything we've got. Only then do we have a chance for a brighter tomorrow.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours.

Bush Policy Irks Judges in West

Using language that suggests they are fed up with the Bush administration, federal judges across the West have issued a flurry of rulings in recent weeks, chastising the government for repeated and sometimes willful failure to enforce laws protecting fish, forests, wildlife and clean air.

Retired Forest Planner Blasts Secret Forest Service Project

The Forest Service has begun bulldozing campgrounds under a secret policy to close recreation facilities. Retired Forest Service planner Dick Artley said: "Something very tragic is happening to our public land. This policy was cooked up in secret by the Forest Service in 2002 with absolutely no public involvement or congressional review."

US Population Growth No Cause for Celebration

Lester Brown says that US population growth is "the ever expanding denominator that gives each person a shrinking share of the resource pie. It contributes to ... a growing dependence on imported oil, and other conditions that diminish the quality of our daily lives." Brown calls for a US population policy to stabilize our numbers.


The Common Denominator

By Emily Spence

Governmental and other world leaders are surprisingly silent when it comes to citing overpopulation as an ultimate cause of sweeping planetary destruction. In the same vein, they don't strive to find a workable solution.

White House Aide to Rove Resigns

Susan Ralston, special assistant to President Bush and a key aide to presidential adviser Karl Rove, resigned Friday in the wake of a congressional report that listed hundreds of contacts between her, disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff and the White House.

Gitmo Guards Brag of Beatings

Guards at Guantanamo Bay bragged about beating detainees and described it as common practice, a Marine sergeant said in a sworn statement obtained by the Associated Press.

Prosecutor: Libby Wants to Load Up Trial With Secrets

Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff intends to load up his criminal trial with information about national security matters and details about various terrorist groups. The danger for prosecutors is that the sheer volume and extreme sensitivity of classified information Libby wants to introduce could scuttle the trial.

The teenage-repellent "MOSQUITO" FREQUENCY BUSTER wins top Harvard Prize

The validity of our campaign may have won some good publicity from that "Mosquito" Frequency Buster scoring tops in this year's Ig Nobel Awards Ceremony (see below). After all we know that sensitivity to specific frequencies and that one size does not fit all when it comes to frequency sentivity are important considerations in our EHS condition.

Best, Imelda, Cork.



[by] Ruadhan Mac Cormac

Why do woodpeckers not get headaches? What is it about the sound of fingernails drawn across a blackboard that makes us wince? And do the people who hand out university research grants have too much money at their disposal? These were some of the questions answered at this year's Ig Nobel Awards ceremony, held at Harvard university on Thursday night. Organised since 1991 by the Annals of Improbable Research, the "alternative Nobels" recognise excellence in quirky and/or worthless scientific research. This year's winners included the inventor of a teenager-repellent device (in the "peace" category); the authors of a study into why dry spaghetti often breaks into more than two pieces when bent (physics); and, for medicine, a case report called Termination of Intractable Hiccups with Digital Rectal Massage. In the literature category, there could only have been one winner: Daniel Oppenheimer, for his paper, Consequences of Erudite Vernacular Utilised Irrespective of Necessity: Problems with using Long Words Needlessly. But not all were beyond practical application.

Howard Stapleton's teenager-repellent device, the Mosquito, emits a high-frequency, siren-like noise that is painful to the ears of teens and those in their early 20s, but inaudible to those older. The device exploits an ageing effect that means our ability to hear high frequency sounds wanes as we get older. In our teens, we can typically hear sounds ranging from 20 Hz to 20kHz, but with age the highest frequencies we can hear drops - sometimes to 18kHz or less. "We discovered that, even at relatively low volumes, the right frequency noise would only be heard by 25s and below and it was highly annoying after five minutes," Mr Stapleton said. "The Mosquito was born." Mr Stapleton's company has sold more than 2,500 units in 18 countries. And almost half have been bought by police forces, who use it for that perennial duty of authorities everywhere: getting the youths to move along.

The work on nails and blackboards, too, was part of a larger, legitimate project on frequency levels caried out 20 years ago by Vandebilt University psychology professor Randolph Blake and two colleagues. What started as a small gathering in 1991 is now an international event, with winners travelling from around the world to attend. The 2006 Ig Nobel ceremeony ended with the traditional call from organiser Dr Marc Abrahams to researchers everywhere: "If you didn't win an Ig Nobel prize tonight - and especially if you did - better luck next year."
