U.S. rules threaten good ties, Nigeria says
ABUJA, Nigeria — Bilatera relations between Nigeria and the United States could be at risk if Washington keeps its requirement for tighter security for Nigerian travellers, a government minister said on yesterday. The procedures, which took effect Monday, come in the wake of a botched Christmas Day bombing attempt on a U.S. airliner blamed on Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who yesterday was indicted on six counts for the failed bombing, including attempted murder of the other 289 passengers and crew aboard the plane

Cuba protests ‘political’ US security listing
HAVANA: Cuba signaled its growing anger with the United States on Tuesday by calling in the top US diplomat in the country to protest its inclusion on a list of countries whose USbound air passengers must get extra security screening. In a statement, the Cuban government said it had delivered a note of protest calling the new measures a “ politically motivated” ploy to justify the US’ 47-year old trade embargo against the Island.

Maneuvers planned
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps will stage maneuvers in the Persian Gulf later this month to test a series of new tactics and weapons, the semi-official Fars news agency reported yesterday.

Cuba protests tighter US screening of passengers
HAVANA—CUBA SUMMONED THE TOP United States diplomat on the island on Tuesday to protest extra screening for Cuban citizens flying into the US, calling the rule a “hostile action” meant to justify America’s trade embargo. The new dispute comes after several setbacks that have all but snuffed out hope for a quick resolution to the half-century of antagonism between Cuba and the US, and as Cuban officials have been increasingly sharp-spoken about their disappointment in President Barack Obama.

Iran renews execution threat against protesters
TEHRAN—IRAN’S INTERIOR minister warned opposition activists on Tuesday they risk execution as enemies of God if they continue anti-government demonstrations, and the foreign ministry said arrested foreigners face punishment. Interior Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar made the latest threat after the Intelligence Ministry said on Monday several foreigners engaged in a “psychological war” against the Islamic Republic were arrested on Dec. 27 in the bloodiest unrest since the aftermath of a disputed June 12 presidential poll.

Book sheds light on Bin Laden family
RIYADH—WITH A BOOK WRITten by one of Osama bin Laden’s sons, and with news of a daughter sheltering in the Saudi Embassy in Iran, some of the blanks are being filled in on the life of the Sept. 11, 2001 mastermind’s large family, including lurid details of his parenting style. Two weeks ago, the son, Omar bin Laden, revealed that many of the children who had been with their father in Afghanistan escaped to Iran following the 2001 United States-led invasion, and were still together in a walled compound under Iranian guard.

Descubren cinco nuevos planetas y se reaviva la esperanza de hallar uno como la Tierra
El más ambicioso telescopio espacial de la NASA, el Kepler, ha comenzado su tarea de encontrar mundos similares a la Tierra en galaxias lejanas con un éxito esperanzador. Si bien, claro, no cumplió su objetivo todavía, a nueve meses de su puesta en órbita ya descubrió cinco nuevos “exoplanetas” –así se denominan a los planetas fuera de nuestro Sistema Solar–. El descubrimiento fue anunciado por un equipo de astrónomos en el congreso anual de la Sociedad Estadounidense de Astrónomos, en Washington, EE. UU.

“¿Cómo será nuestra vida sin vos?”
Sandro, ¿cómo será nuestra vida sin vos? Te lamentabas por no tener fuerza para luchar. ¡Pero sí, Gitano! Nos diste el carisma de tu voz que nos acompañará por siempre. A nosotras, tus nenas, que aprendimos letras de canciones, de tanto escuchar tus discos, o de verte en los “Especiales de Mancera”, con la voz de fondo de… nuestro viejo. Nunca disfrutamos la dicha de ir a un recital, pero te “ tuvimos” en el Gran Rex y en esas noches de magia, creí que me cantabas: “¿Cómo te diré que ya mis ojos se cansaron de llorar?

“Siria ha atacado a Israel una y otra vez”
Las declaraciones a Clarín del ministro de Información de Siria, Mohsen Bilal, en relación a Israel y al conflicto en Oriente Medio generaron un fuerte rechazo del embajador de Israel en Argentina, Daniel Gazit. “Después de haber querido intentar destruir a Israel más de una vez, pretenden volver a que la situación sea como antes de 1967”, destacó.

La Carta Orgánica exige que actúe una comisión bicameral
C uando Cristina Kirchner firmó el DNU para impulsar el Fondo del Bicentenario, cuatro días después del inicio del receso legislativo, difícilmente hubiera imaginado que el Congreso cerrado podría generarle contratiempos para implementar la medida. Más bien todo lo contrario. Para conseguir la remoción de Martín Redrado, el Ejecutivo tiene que recibir previamente el “consejo” de una comisión bicameral parlamentaria cuya constitución demandará una serie de pasos difíciles de cumplir hasta fines de febrero.

Starting today, all passengers on U.S.bound international flights will be subject to random screening. Airports are also directed to increase “threat-based” screening of passengers who may be acting in a suspicious manner.

Iran-Americans urged to stand, be counted
LOS ANGELES — Before comedian Peter the Persian took the stage, Nadia Babayi stepped to the front of the room and struck a more serious tone.

Guard dies in Gaza border clash
AN Egyptian policeman has been shot dead and several Palestinians were injured in clashes on the troubled border between Egypt and the Gaza Strip. Indicating the beginning of another bad year for the Hamas-run Gaza, yesterday’s clashes came a day after a Palestinian was killed during an Israeli airstrike on the Gazan town of Khan Younis, which Israel said was in response to a rocket being fired from that position into Israel.

MULLAHS INDUBITABLY FANCY A MUSHROOM CLOUD
WELL into a January 3 New York Times report on the US administration’s increasingly worried internal discussions about Iran, there came a couple of paragraphs that warranted closer scrutiny: ‘‘[Barack] Obama’s top advisers say they no longer believe the key finding of a much disputed National Intelligence Estimate about Iran, published a year before resident George W. Bush left office, which said that Iranian scientists ended all work on designing a nuclear warhead in late 2003.

Rogers speaks to Cleburne groups
Speaking to three different groups in three locations in Cleburne County this week, Congressman Mike Rogers touched on a variety of topics from health care to ACORN. “I’ve never seen people as angry as they are now. It’s the first time I’ve seen people as engaged as they are. People are engaged and that is good,” he said while speaking before a Diamond Set Luncheon at Heflin Baptist Church.

Everest Kanto Cylinder
Price Target: Rs 173 Date of call: December 29, 2009 Price on that date: Rs 144.35 Last close price: Rs 150.40 Rationale: While our thesis of Everest Kanto Cylinder benefiting from favourable regulatory changes in India and incremental gas supply from the KG-D6 basin remains intact, problems at the Dubai operations of the company will dominate earnings for the next 6-12 months, in our view.

weigh options
questions about whether the West can credibly threaten to destroy Iran’s nuclear program, analysts insist that the US, Israel and their allies will never rule out that option. The Pentagon, in fact, is racing to develop a powerful new tunnel-busting bomb. In 2002, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, an opposition group, revealed that Iran was building a secret underground nuclear plant at Natanz that turned out to be for enriching uranium. Enrichment plants can make fuel for reactors or atom bombs.

Iran nukes go underground
Last September, when Iran’s uranium enrichment plant buried inside a mountain near the holy city of Qum was revealed, the episode cast light on a wider pattern: Over the past decade, Iran has quietly hidden an increasingly large part of its atomic complex in networks of tunnels and bunkers across the country. In doing so, American government and experts say, Iran has achieved a double purpose.

Changing times give old Jerusalem market new flavour
A sweet aroma wafts into the cold morning air as Eliran Shrefler cooks up the hearty soups and stews that have made his restaurant a legend in Mahne Yehuda market, itself a Jerusalem landmark. Shrefler is just 28, but he has little time for the stylish eateries and pricey boutiques that now dot the bustling market, a venerable institution steeped in the past century’s dramatic history of the Holy City.

A matter of tolerance
Steven Erlanger’s article, ‘‘Mosque epitomises Europe’s xenophobia,’’ ( BP, Dec 29, 2009) is sub-headed: Racism. One should take care not to confuse race with religion. Europe and particularly the UK is very liberal and multi-racial. Race is not the real issue but religion is. Europe is essentially secular; were it not so, it could not be so liberal and tolerant of people from other parts of the world.

Thailand could be without four injured players in their Asian Cup qualifier against Jordan at Rajamangala tomorrow.

Cleric urged to end crackdown
TEHERAN: Dozens of Teheran University professors appealed to Iran’s supreme leader to halt the ongoing violence against opposition protesters, a pro-reform website reported yesterday. The letter to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei — signed by 88 professors — was the latest daring challenge to the Iran’s clerical leadership. The letter, posted on the Greenroad website, called the attacks a sign of weakness in the ruling system and demanded punishment for those who beat up students.

In response to Gary Stowe’s letter ( January 7), I would like to speak out as a tolerant, practising Muslim. The word Allah is an Arabic word meaning ‘‘the God’’. The word is preferred by Muslims because, in its Arabic form, it cannot be made a plural and refers to the one almighty God.

Sanctions outlook to restrain Iran nuclear drive
The United States and top EU allies are seeking extended sanctions against Iran over its rejection of a U.N. plan to temper its nuclear ambitions, but Chinese and Russian resistance poses a major stumbling block. Western concerns have been stoked by Iran’s plan for 10 more uranium e n r i c h ment plants, defiantly announced after the U.N. atomic watchdog rebuked Tehran for hiding an underground site near Qom, raising suspicion that it covertly seeks nuclear arms.

TEHRAN—NEARLY 90 PROFESsors at Tehran University have told Iran’s supreme leader that ongoing violence against protesters shows the weakness of the country’s leadership, a proreform website reported on Monday, reflecting a growing willingness to risk careers and studies to challenge the ruling clerics. The current rumblings from universities highlight the evolution of the opposition movement. What began as raw and angry voter backlash after last June’s disputed presidential election has moved to a possibly deeper and more ingrained fight against Iran’s Islamic leaders.

Acid-washed era of change
THE 1980s was not just a time for bad outfits and big hair. The decade also saw social and economic change as wealth and production migrated to newly industrialising economies. As economic liberalisation increased in the developed world, multinational corporations associated with the manufacturing industry relocated into Thailand, Malaysia, Mexico, South Korea, Taiwan, China, and new market economies in eastern Europe following the collapse of communism in eastern Europe.
