Few doctors turn up for swine flu vaccine, fear side effects

Few doctors turn up for swine flu vaccine, fear side effects 15 Jun 2010 Only 50 medical personnel from across BMC hospitals have opted to take the H1N1 vaccine at Kasturba Hospital, Chinchpokli, in the past ten days. Across the state, just 592 medical personnel, including 400 in Pune, have been inoculated since April. The Centre had sent 34,300 doses of the swine flu vaccine, made by French pharmaceutical company Sanofi-Pasteur, to the state. A source in the BMC said one of the reasons for the poor response was the fear of side effects. "The 400 people who have taken the vaccine in Pune are being monitored because some have suffered side effects," said the official.

Gaza crossing points opened as Israel bows to international pressure

Gaza crossing points opened as Israel bows to international pressure 15 Jun 2010 Israel bowed to international pressure yesterday when it agreed to reopen crossing points into Gaza for everyday goods.

After weeks of delay, BP deploys sensors to measure size of spill

After weeks of delay, BP deploys sensors to measure size of spill By Andre Damon 14 Jun 2010 BP deployed undersea sensors to measure the flow of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday, as official estimates of the spill size continued to grow. Last week, a team of scientists estimated that the rate of the oil spill was between 30,000 and 50,000 barrels (1.2 million and 2.1 million gallons) per day. Scientists on the federal Flow Rate Technical Group (FRTG) have said that BP’s move to cut the riser pipe from the well likely increased the rate of flow beyond this figure, perhaps by several multiples. Until this weekend, BP and the government repeatedly stressed that they had no intention of installing equipment to measure the flow of oil, alleging that such attempts would interfere with efforts to cap the leak.

Massachusetts Senate attaches anti-immigrant measure to state budget

Massachusetts Senate attaches anti-immigrant measure to state budget By John Marion 14 Jun 2010 This year, the budget process in Massachusetts is being used to wage a two-pronged assault on workers: drastic cuts in school budgets and social services as well as a backdoor attempt to pass a draconian anti-immigrant measure through the state legislature. The anti-immigrant measure, which was attached to the Senate’s fiscal year 2011 budget proposal in the form of two amendments, passed by a wide margin in a body where only five members are Republicans. Twenty-three Democrats joined the Republicans in approving the amendments by a 28-10 margin.

US dumping toxic brew in Iraq

US dumping toxic brew in Iraq 15 Jun 2010 The United States will be leaving a toxic brew of hazardous waste behind when US forces withdraw from Iraq, a new report says. On Monday, The Times of London said that companies from the United States are selling local Iraqi scrap dealers a cocktail of toxic material and ordinary waste.

[Gee, hopefully people will put an abrupt end to all US eco-terrorism in Iraq.]

Lawmakers accuse BP of 'shortcuts'

Lawmakers accuse BP of 'shortcuts' 15 Jun 2010 To save time and drilling costs, BP took "shortcuts" that may have led to the oil rig explosion and the spill in the Gulf of Mexico, according to a letter released Monday by two House Democrats leading an investigation of the disaster. The letter, sent in advance of congressional hearings with senior oil executives this week, paints a damning picture of five decisions the lawmakers said the oil firm took "to speed finishing the well," which was running "significantly behind schedule." Marshaling e-mails, interviews and documents, the lawmakers said: "In effect, it appears that BP repeatedly chose risky procedures in order to reduce costs and save time, and made minimal efforts to contain the added risk."

Rawl to protest Greene 'victory' 14 Jun 2010 South Carolina Democratic candidate Vic Rawl announced Monday he’ll lodge a protest against the June 8 primary vote that handed the little-known [GOP troll] Alvin Greene the Democratic nomination for Senate.

Spanish banks teeter on brink of collapse 15 Jun 2010 The European economy edged towards a fresh crisis yesterday, as Spain's leaders were forced to admit that credit had dried up for some of the country's banks.

Obama Takes a Hard Line Against Leaks to Press

Obama Takes a Hard Line Against Leaks to Press 12 Jun 2010 Though Thomas A. Drake is charged under the Espionage Act, Mr. Drake appears to be a classic whistle-blower whose goal was to strengthen the N.S.A.'s ability to catch terrorists, not undermine it. ...The Obama administration is proving more aggressive than the Bush administration in seeking to punish unauthorized leaks. In 17 months in office, President Obama has already outdone every previous president in pursuing leak prosecutions. His administration has taken actions that might have provoked sharp political criticism for his predecessor [sic], George W. Bush, who was often in public fights with the press.

"They had people in Dundalk taking pictures. I would say it is standard. They would be either Mossad or IDF intelligence," he said.
