Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory have developed a screening method to examine how newly made nanoparticles — particles with dimensions on the order of billionths of a meter — interact with human cells following exposure for various times and doses. This has led to the visualization of how human cells interact with some specific types of carbon nanoparticles.

The Dublin Port Tunnel Scam

23-08-2006 22:33

The €1 billion euro Dublin Port Project, directed by Halliburton subsidiary KBR, has been plagued with construction problems, and from this viewpoint alone looks like becoming another financial black hole to the benefit of a military contractor. But there is more to the story: back in 1990, when there was a chance to move Dublin Port, thus providing room for much-needed expansion and removing Port traffic from the city streets, the State chose instead to leave the Port where is was and instead build the Port Tunnel. Earlier this year, the Progressive Democrats, partner in the Irish government, revived the plan to move the Port, when the tunnel was almost complete. This article examines why.

23-08-2006 19:48

Remember that the ONLY people currently pushing for war are the criminal, Extremist Regimes which are currently controlled by Zionist Extremists.

"At the beginning of the 20th century, Germany was Europe's leading power but we made wrong decisions and experienced a total disaster.. We yielded to our hegemonial ambitions.. But we underestimated Europe's anti-hegemonial instincts If you strive for hegemony, you and the whole region will be the losers."

Archbishop Fiorenza, Assassination & the Houston 911-2B

23-08-2006 16:50

Sergeant First Class Donald Buswell, a member of the mysterious cyber-intelligence group, Ghost Troop, recently became a worldwide figure of interest with the mainstream publication of the Army's reaction to his "911 heresey." He failed to uphold the official line of 19 Arabs with boxcutters doing the 911 attacks, and for that is now a target. There's a deeper, more sinister story of just how far the Army went to try to silence its best know dissident, and how little Catholic Church officials who knew of his predicament were willing to do to defend him.

!! Odd gaps, missing background, a bias that seems further "pro-war" than in favour of israel or palestine, patriot or internationalist, is the strange "odour you dont see" that comes from pretty much ALL the press in the last couple of weeks - regardless of its alleged position in the "spectrum of opinion" - - - - as odd events in the middle east seem to try to blow any peace chance, -"immigration" buttons!!

Set Free to Molest Again - a breech of duty of trust - Tony Blair

23-08-2006 12:23

I think the title pretty much says it all. When all the world deplores, hates - whatever word you use to describe the venom, most parents feel towards these subhuman creatures - a child molester and every man and his dog knows they cannot be rehabilitated... what inhumane bastard would set them free? Is that not a breech of duty of care? Has the world gone mad? Does no one care about the kids in our own country who are consistently being placed at risk by SETTING CHILD MOLESTERS FREE?
