YUCCA MOUNTAIN NUCLEAR DUMP SITE
July 10, 2002 - U.S.A. / Nevada
The United States Senate gives final approval to bury all of the country's nuclear waste in Yucca Mountain, Nevada about 80 miles from Las Vegas. The plans include storing 70,000 metric tons of radioactive material from America's 103 nuclear power plants deep inside the mountain for about 10,000 years. As of 2008 the project is still not accepting Nuclear waste due to legal challenges, funding, the transport of nuclear waste issues, and ongoing political pressure. Currently there are 130 separate nuclear waste sites scattered around the US.
July 10, 2008 - Sudan
Peacekeepers in the Darfur region of Sudan are hijacked when their convoy is ambushed in Darfur by hundreds of rebel gunmen on horses and with 40 trucks outfitted with mounted machine guns. The peacekeepers were outnumbered and suffered 7 dead and many more injured. The latest attack brings into question how long the Peace Keepers can stay in the region without more men and advanced equipment including helicopter gun ships to better protect those whose role it is to protect others. The President of Sudan Omar Hassan al-Bashir is facing indictments by the International Criminal Court for alleged atrocities and crimes against humanity in the region which left 450,000 dead and 2.5 million displaced.
A Change is Gonna Come
by Meredith Grey
"...Change; we don't like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn't is lying. But here's the truth: Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything...."
No Man is Above the Law
by Theodore Roosevelt
"..."No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we require him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor."..."

about Stolen On New Year's
More vehicles are stolen on New Year's Day than any other holiday throughout the year. (So does that mean thieves are having their last fling before changing their ways or are they trying for a big score to start the New Year?)
