06-17-2009  •  AFP 
A decision by China to reduce its US Treasury holdings suggests concern about the US attitude towards its economic woes, Chinese economists said.

Coming after a modest decline in Chinese investments in US government bonds, were in contrast to an earlier statement in Beijing which had said the recent sell-off was a routine transaction.

Beijing orders 'Buy China' for stimulus projects
06-17-2009  •  AP 
China has imposed a requirement for its stimulus projects to use domestically made goods -- a move that could strain ties with trading partners after Beijing criticized Washington's "Buy American" stimulus provisions.

Projects must obtain official permission to use imported goods, said an order issued by China's main planning agency and eight other government bodies.

Justices heard last month from a Muslim woman who sued [a judge] because her small claims case was dismissed when she refused to remove her veil.

Holder said officials were discussing how to handle such suspects and whether new legislation would be required to hold them. He said even without a trial, a judge would have to review the basis for holding such detainees.

"The thought we had was that there would be some kind of review with regard to the initial determination and then a periodic review," Holder said.

Slowing Concrete Creep
06-17-2009  •  arclein 
The researchers show experimentally that the rate of creep is logarithmic, which means slowing creep increases durability exponentially. They demonstrate mathematically that creep can be slowed by a rate of 2.6. That would have a truly remarkable effect on durability: a containment vessel for nuclear waste built to last 100 years with today's concrete could last up to 16,000 years if made with an ultra-high-density (UHD) concrete.  Read Full Story

Biochar Best Practice Editorial in Nature
06-17-2009  •  arclein 
With just six months left to go, all sectors are vying for a place at the table in Copenhagen, where negotiators will begin sketching what should eventually become an all-embracing climate deal. While some players are seeking assistance in adapting to the impacts of climate change (page 68), others are hoping to stake a claim in the emerging green economy (page 72). The prospects of the latter are bright for those involved in the nascent biochar industry, which plans to sequester vast quantities of carbon in soil using an ancient Amazonian agricultural practice and to sell the latent emissions as credits on a global carbon market.  Read Full Story

Morpheus Titania
   Today's victims: Elton Gallegly R-CA24 and Darrell Issa R-CA49. There are only 15 Republican members of the house who currently are not cosponsors to the bill. I think we should target these last 15 and try to get them on board. This will bring us closer to 290. When contacting them, make it clear to them that there are only a few of them left, and that they should join the rest of their party in cosponsoring the bill. Neither are members of the committee, but we should still try getting 100% of the House Republicans on board.

Pastor Beaten And Tased By Arizona Border Patrol
06-17-2009  •  cbs13 
A man who grew up in Sacramento is now sharing a traumatic story on the internet. He is a pastor who says he was beaten for exercising his constitutional rights.
"I'm crying out for mercy, they are torturing me with tasers again and again," says Pastor Steven Anderson.
This was a graphic description on YouTube.

Pastor Steven Anderson claims he was tortured during a common border patrol stop in Arizona.

Anderson grew up in Sacramento and was active at the Regency Baptist Church. His father who lives in Roseville is outraged over his son's treatment.

"I was appalled they could do that in the U.S.; beat and torture somebody who didn't resist, but just wouldn't let them search his car," says Anderson.

Anderson, who heads a church in Phoenix, was stopped at a boarder patrol check point 75 miles east of Yuma.

Border patrol says a K-9 alerted agents to the car.
