They do beautiful eyebrows and draw up several ideas so that you can choose the one you like best. They can make your eyelashes look fuller and longer.

Richard Jewell Dies

Richard Jewell, the man who was erroneously linked to the l996 Olympic bombing has died. He lived for more than decade with the shame caused by being wrongly linked to the bombing. He had diabetes, kidney problems and was on dialysis for several days recently and was found dead in his west Georgia home. He was 44. An autopsy was scheduled but the County Coroner said no foul play was suspected. The Jewell episode led a soul-searching among news organizations about the use of unattributed or anonymously sourced information. His very name became shorthand for the person accused of wrongdoing in the media based on scanty information.

The decision was made even though only one of Europe's four energy efficient light bulb producers, Germany's Osram, had called for more time to adjust. The tariffs, introduced to stop cheap Chinese imports entering Europe, can add up to 66% to the price of bulbs. The tariff extension will require the majority backing by EU member states. They now have a month to decide.

When we want to go to a good ballgame, we want to go now, not be put off by them telling us they are all sold out.

Experts used the fossil pollen grains to estimate the ages of major branches of orchids living today.

Thailand has set a date for the first general election following last year's coup that ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra from power. The electoral commission said the election would be held on December 23. Thailand's military-installed government had promised elections by the end of the year after it won approval for a new constitution. Nearly 58% backed the new draft in a referendum earlier this month, though many pro-Thaksin areas rejected it.

Sudan Kicks Out Aid Agenc Chief

The director of international aid agency Care in Sudan, Paul Barker, says he has been expelled from the country. Mr. Barker says he was not given a specific reason, but was told the decision had been taken at the highest level of national security. He said his agency had faced problems with the government since an internal mail about the future of Darfur was leaked to the Sudanese media.

Prime Minister Rules Out Iraq Exit Timetable

Gordon Brown has ruled out setting a timetable for the withdrawal of British troops from Iraq, saying they still have an important job to do. The prime minister said in a letter to Liberal Democrat leader Sir Menzies Campbell, the military still had clear obligations to discharge. He insisted setting a timetable would undermine those efforts. Sir Menzies said Mr. Brown was ignoring the reality in Iraq and should accept that UK efforts there had failed.

Video Stock

This company video stock has come up with a great unique plan to help out all cinematographers get hold of extra video film clips that others aren't using and don't need. They have set up a company that accepts these extra video clips and arranges them for sale to others who do need them. It is a great way to help them out and also make money for the original cinematographers that took the film clips. It so happens, when a cinematographer is out on a job that they take much more footage than is actually used eventually. And it begins to pile up, while there are others who are in need of such footage. By selling this footage for them, the cinematatographer who originally took the film, can make 50% of the net revenue and get paid monthly. They focus exclusively on High Definition and there are a great many producers who want this rather than the standard definition which may be inadequate for them. Everyone wins in this situation. If you are in the market for some film clips, check them out.

Diseases Have Changed

In the 19th century, scientists discovered a range of agents causing ancient scourges such as anthrax, staph, TB and tetanus. In the l970's and 80s, it wasn't pathogens experts were discovering but new syndromes: children getting sick with rashes and fever in the suburban areas of the Americas, people suffering from liver and renal disease after consuming undercooked meat. One of the changes affecting human health was increasingly intensive poultry farming, which ma account for the global spread of bird flu. It should not come as a surprise that we are seeing more and more disease outbreaks coming from the animal sector. The majority of the 39 new diseases have come from animals, including Ebola, SARS, and bird flu.

Unprecended Number Of New Diseases

According to the U>S> Health Agency , there are an unprecedented number of new diseases emerging such as AIDS< and 38 other pathogens that were unknown a generation ago. The believe that a ballooning world population, intensive farming practices and changes in sexual behavior have provided a breeding ground for this alarming increase in diseases. Dr. Mike Ryan of the World Health Organization said we have seen a shift in trend that reflects a transition of human civilization.The relationship to the animal kingdom, our travel, our social, sexual and other behaviors have changed the nature of our relationship with the microbial world and the result of that is the emergence of new pathogens and the spread of those pathogens around the world.

Soldiers Die in Uganda Road Crash

More than 70 people including 57 soldiers, have died when a truck overturned in east Uganda's mountains. The army says the soldiers and their families were being moved from the border with Kenya to their base when their truck hit a concrete barrier. The accident is one of Uganda's worst in recent history. There are 31 seriously injured soldiers now in nearby hospitals. One local official says the truck's brakes may have failed on an incline.

It's a Great Day!

It's a beautiful day today. The sun is shining and the rain has stopped for 2 days now. My hanging pots of flowers are all getting ready to bloom now. The lawn has really grown and my husband is out mowing it early before it gets way to hot. We got a new hummingbird feeder and someone told us in the store that they had bought one and the orioles come and drink out of it. Well, they were right. We saw the most beautiful oriole yesterday morning and night coming to drink and he stays for a long time. I called the next door neighbor so she could look out the window and see it as we have never had one this close up before. A pair of hummingbirds fed all day too the last couple of days so we are sure happy we bought this particular one because it has little perches inbetween the flowers where the birds drink and they can sit and drink or sit and rest. It is fun to see a hummingbird sitting because you would never guess that they ever stop.

Florida Villa

Boy, what I wouldn't give to be able to go to Florida and stay in one of those beautiful villas. I was sure I couldn't begin to afford it until my friend told me to get on the internet and look around. Sure enough, I found this wonderful website Florida Villa that has been in business since 1947 and in 1986 they set up an office in Florida. So I figured that they have to be experts in lodging anywhere in Florida and I was right. This is one stop shopping for a vacation place and especially for the UK visitor. The reason it is so good for the UK visitor is that before, they had to take whatever their agent reserved for them. Now they can go online and see what they are getting and reserve a specific place. Most UK visitors have no idea how cheap it is to rent a villa. It could cost them as little as $10 a night to go through this company. How can you beat a deal like that? You can't!

WHO Warns of Global Epidemic Risk

Infectious diseases are spreading faster than ever before, the World Health Organization annual report says. With about 2.1 billion airline passengers flying each year, there is a high risk of another major epidemic such as Aids, Sars or Ebola fever. The WHO urges increased efforts to combat disease outbreaks, and sharing of virus data to help develop vaccines. Without this, it says, there could be devastating impacts on the global economy and international security.

It's Been a Great Day

It has been a great day for me to get some work done around the house. I vacuumed and cleaned the stairway carpet outside and vacuumed the inside of the car. It really needed it, bad. Then I cleaned the bathrooms and swifter dusted all the floors. I made a good lunch and a great pork chop supper with mashed potatoes and gravy and vegetables. We had fresh sliced tomatoes that the neighbor brought over. They are so good this time of the year. I also went out and filled up the finch feeder as the goldfinch are returning again. We haven't seen many for a couple of weeks. They are so beautiful and have such a pretty song. It's fun to feel like you have accomplished something for a change after working hard all week on the job.

Eye Surgeries

I know it amazing how they can operate on eyes now and fix them so you don't need glasses anymore. It is a little scary though as some people have ended up with blurred vision for life. Now my husband is going to undergo cataract surgery on both eyes. One will be just 5 days before his birthday and then they will wait 2-3 weeks to be sure his eye is properly healed before they do the other one. They showed us the tiny little new lense the will put in his eye. It is amazing how small it is. They make the tiniest little slit in the eye and vacuum out the cararact and take out the old lense and put in the new one. You end up with 20-20 vision but they recommend some sort of glasses, probably for reading. You have to be there 3 hours ahead of time, it takes 20 minutes for the surgery and wait an hour after before going home. Kind of a long time but well worth it. Right now he is restricted so that he can't drive at night until his eyes are fixed and this has been very upsetting and traumatic for him. It makes us both understand how older people feel when the take away their license and car keys.

Dead Sea Salt

When we went to Israel, we were shown all the wonderful beauty products that are made from the minerals in the dead sea. There are no beauty products made that are as fine as those made from the dead sea salt. These products are natural care solutions for acne, psoriasis, wrinkles and more. This website dead sea salt has a huge array of wonderful skin scrubs that contain 26 minerals essential to skin health and proper moisture balance..

It has 1800 beautiful deluxe suites for your comfort and convenience. You can have your choice of a King size bed or two Queen size. And there is no end to the list of amenities there.

To make a reservation, just go online to Orleans hotel Las Vegas and make your choice. They have great photos to look at too.


As we women age, our bodies change a lot it seems. We are always using various makeup and creams to cover wrinkles and enhance our good looks.

A lot of women know very little about progesterone cream but it has a great many good benefits. It will promote vitality and reduce stress. A very good product for you to look into.

Curfew in Six Bangladesh Cities

An indefinite curfew is in force in Bangladesh's capital, Dhaka, and five other cities, to try to stop violent clashes between police and students. At least one person died and 100 others were hurt as riots spread across the country, according to police. The students want an end to emergency rule. The mobile phone network has been shut down and the government has urged calm. The violence poses the most serious challenge to the emergency government since it took power six months ago.

Computer Products

It seems like our computers are always breaking down or some sort of problem. And today, computers are outdated before you get them out of the store, so if you are like I am, you are constantly looking for various computer products and you would like to find a place to get them at reasonable prices so it doesn't break your budget. Well, I checked around and a friend told me about this online website computer products where I found I could locate a convenient and reliable source for all my computer product needs and at competitive prices too. They have grown considerably and now represent over 300 leading manufacturers who sell their products all over the USA. What I like too is that 98 percent of their orders are shipped out the same day. They have 6 warehouses and you can get what you need in one to three business days.

Stocks Rebound on Recovery Hopes

US and European stocks have risen, spurred by hopes of an interest rate cut by the US Federal Reserve to help calm recent market volatility. The Dow Jones index closed 1.1% ahead while London's FYSE 100 ended 1.8% up. Hopes of a US rate cut came after a US senator said the Fed would use all available tools to calm credit fears.

Fossils Belong to New Great Ape

Nine fossilized teeth found in Ethiopia are from a previously unknown species of great ape, according to Nature journal reports. The 10 million year old fossils belong to an animal that has been named Coroapithecus abyssinicus by the Ethiopian-Japanese team. This new species could be a direct ancestor of living African great apes, according to the researchers. The finds from the Afar rift, in eastern Ethiopia, raise questions on current theories of human evolution.

China has accused some United States exporters of supplying tainted soy bean crops. Chinese officials said potentially harmful weeds and contaminated dirt had been found in the beans, but made no mention of any import restrictions. China has recently been the center of concerns about the safety of some of its own exports, including toothpaste, pet food and in the latest case, toys.

US to Shut Anti-Terror Database

The Pentagon has said it will shut down a controversial anti-terror database.

The database was used to compile information on potential threats to US military facilities and personnel. A Pentagon review found that it had included reports on peaceful protesters and anti-war demonstrations which should have been deleted.

CIA Criticizes Ex-chief Over 9/11`

I can still remember the first time I heard the term "headhunters" where I was working in the office.

They have many experienced representatives that are able to fit clients into the best jobs both for the client and the new employer. Having been to "headhunters" themselves has given them an added insight into what the employer is looking for in a new employee and also what the client is looking for in a new position with the company. Experience, skill and that insight make all the difference. If you are job hunting, look into this site as they have the expertise to assist you to find just what you are looking for.

EU Biofuel Policy is a "Mistake"

Hot, Muggy Day

Here we are, another hot muggy day that makes the corn grow and we shrink into the cool home, office or car to get away from it. The rain has been coming but probably not enough. So many sections of the country are in bad drought and the wells are beginning to pump sand. Not a good thing. Animals and people are dying of the heat and it is no wonder. The swimming pools are full to capacity and now I hear a lot of them are having problems with contamination of the water. Too many people I guess. They have to use so much chlorine to kill the germs that it just has to burn the kids' eyes. I don't know what the answer is. Every town is building these gigantic swimming pools now. They are really nice though.

Intelligence Director Defends Gonzales

President Bush's spy chief sought to defend Attorney General Alberto Gonzales against charges of lying to Congress in a technically worded statement hinging on when the government's terror surveillance program got its name. He hinted, as Gonzales has, that there is more to the program than has been made public.Senate Judiciary Committee members have questioned whether Gonzales told the truth when he testified last week that a 2004 confrontation between the administration officials was not about the president's secret eavesdropping program, dubbed the terrorist surveillance program. Gonzales' testimony indicated there was more to the administration's intelligence gathering than has been divulged.

Florida Voting Machines

It was found that Florida's optical scan voting machines are still flawed, despite efforts to fix them. They could allow poll workers to tamper with the election results. Isn't that something? A Florida State University information technology laboratory went over the list of previously discovered flaws to see whether the machines were still vulnerable to attack. The said while the vendor had fixed many of these flaws, many important vulnerabilities remain unaddressed. Will this never end with the voting in Florida?

India's First Female President Sworn In

Indian has it's first female president. She vowed to eliminate the practice of aborting female fetuses and to empower women, who are often treated as second class citizens. White clad, mounted honor guard escorted her to a limousine to Parliament where she took the oath of office. The ceremony was followed b a 21-gun salute announcing the inauguration of Indians 13th president. Women feel this is only a lukewarm response that gives women little more than a symbol - not a leader that represents them. One of her goals is to do away with the head scarves Muslims and Hindus alike wear.

Britain Plans Tougher Anti-terrorism Laws

Britain is planning to get tough new anti-terrorism laws. They feel the police need greater powers to hold and question terror suspects in increasingly complex and global plots. Prime Minister Brown was in office two days when a failed terror attack against London happened. Since September 11, 2001, there have been 15 failed terror attempted attacks in Britain. Brown said fighting al-Qaida inspired terrorism would last a generation. He said one option under consideration was extending the time that police can question terror suspects. Currently, suspects need to be charged or released within 28 days.

The rates on 30 year mortgages remained unchanged this week as a flood of new economic data did not change the general views of financial markets about inflation. Freddie Mac reported that 30 year fixed rate mortgages averaged 6.73 percent this week, the same as last week. Government reports this week showed that inflation at the wholesale and consumer levels came down in June, reflecting big declines in gas prices.

Children's Health Insurance

The Senate committee approved a five-year $35 billion expansion of a children's health insurance program that would be financed through higher tobacco taxes. The program subsidizes insurance for children and some adults with incomes too high for Medicaid but not high enough to afford private insurance. The additional spending approved by the committee would bring total SCIP funding to $60 billion over five years which is double what the administration has proposed. The president has threatened a presidential veto on this.

Grand Jury Does Not Indict Doctor

A grand jury refused to indict a doctor accused of murdering four seriously ill hospital patients with drug injections during the desperate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, closing the books on the only mercy killing case to emerge from the storm. Dr. Anna Pou acknowledged administering medication to the patients but insisted she did so only to relieve pain. She and two nurses were arrested last summer after the Attorney General concluded they gave lethal cocktails to four patients at the flooded-out, sweltering Memorial Medical Center after the storm.
