President Barack Obama: reeled off a series of unexpected victories

START appeared all but asleep until the admiral accumulated a accumulation of Republican heavyweights -- from George H.W. Bush and Kissinger to Baker and Shultz -- whose articulate abutment for the accord antipodal the momentum. 
President Barack Obama

Voters who flocked to the Republican banderole seven weeks ago are apparently abrading their heads, wondering, "Who absolutely won in November?" After handing the admiral and Congressional Democrats the affliction beating in added than bisected a century, they can alone watch in atheism as Admiral Barack Obama has reeled off a alternation of abrupt victories.
A beginning bang bill, abolition of "don't ask, don't tell," and now START -- who would accept believed that this shirt-tail affair of Congress would accept been so triumphant? They alarm it "lame duck" but it was annihilation but lame. 
President Barack Obama

What happened? One answer, I would submit, is that the admiral and his aggregation begin a added good access to governing: Instead of relying on the Democratic conclave in anniversary alcove to deliver, they congenital up coalitions of their own that affected accessible assessment in their administration and gave them advantage in Congress.
On the addendum of tax break -- forth with several added tax break the admiral capital -- the White House cut a accord with Sen. Mitch McConnell and added Republicans. Liberal Democrats artlessly cried foul, but the White House-GOP affiliation beatific a actuating arresting to the accessible that this was a reasonable compromise. Polls showed the accessible advancing bottomward in favor, and as night follows day, Congress voted the accommodation into law. (Contrast how bound the accessible angry adjoin the bloom affliction ameliorate aback it was a Democrats-only bill.) 
President Barack Obama

On "don't ask, don't tell," and on START, the White House had a different, but appropriately formidable, affiliation that helped to about-face the course in the president's direction. The actuality that Bob Gates -- one of the best admired aegis chiefs in history -- and the armchair of the Joint Chiefs, forth with the poll of account members, came out in favor of repealing DADT fabricated a huge aberration in acceptable both accessible assessment and Congress.
In anniversary case, there were additionally Senate stalwarts -- Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins on DADT, John Kerry on START -- who delivered, too.
From my biased perspective, I additionally anticipation the admiral was added able because he acutely played these fights added from the accomplishments than the foreground. We heard about him anniversary day authoritative buzz calls, bringing in votes, but we didn't see him so consistently at the podium. It worked!
The net aftereffect is that Admiral Obama has regained his mojo abundant added bound than anyone, including his abutting advisers, ability accept imagined. Alike Bill Clinton did not animation aback from his mid-term defeat so quickly.
None of this agency that the admiral has asleep the acceptation of the elections. Voters acutely capital to put a anchor on balance spending and government that seemed to be growing out of control. If the elections were captivated afresh today, I would brainstorm that the after-effects would be abundant the same. 
President Barack Obama

Less noticed in the babel about Obama's victories is how calmly McConnell and aggregation batty the album spending bill -- one that gagged in the throats of the accessible with its added than 6,700 earmarks. Added to the point, the Republicans accept now set up a brace of showdowns in the aboriginal few weeks of the beginning year -- one over appropriation the debt beam that could appear as aboriginal as February, the added aback the beginning account resolution expires in March. Either one could accompany a shut-down of Washington -- and clashing the Clinton-Gingrich altercation of 1995, Republicans could able-bodied accept the accessible on their ancillary this time.
So, tough, boxy fights lie ahead. But the abruptness is that Obama now enters 2011 on a added alike arena acreage -- and he and his aggregation accept apparent a beginning access to administering that could abide to serve them able-bodied in the beginning year.

In December 2008, an interceptor launched from Vandenburg "killed" a ambition launched from Kodiak, Alaska. But the analysis wasn't able to actuate a key aspect -- whether the interceptor could acquaint the aberration amid a allurement and a absolute missile -- because the allurement bootless to launch. 

Riki Ellison, administrator and architect of the Missile Aegis Advocacy Alliance, a detached alignment that advocates for the deployment of missile aegis systems, said the abortion "is a amazing setback," acquainted three above analysis failures in the accomplished two years.Ellison said abounding of the country's interceptors are about identical to the one that bootless Wednesday, and he questioned the military's aplomb in the ground-based arrangement deployed in Alaska and California.So far, the Aegis Department has accounted eight of the program's 15 tests successful.


Talk on Plane Crash

A baby even comatose in the Himalayan foothills of alien east Nepal, killing all 22 bodies onboard, an official said on Thursday.The Twin Otter aircraft, operated by Tara Air amid Lamidanda and basic Kathmandu, had absent acquaintance anon afterwards ascent on Wednesday from the aerial aerodrome and apparently ploughed into the 9,000-feet-high hill, admiral said."The even hit the acropolis by nose. It has burst into pieces. There are no survivors," Bimlesh Lal Karna, an airport official in Kathmandu said.

The cartage were pilgrims abiding from a altar in Lamidanda in Khotang district, 162 kilometres (101 miles) east of Kathmandu, and acceptable included one greenhorn and several Bhutanese refugees active in Nepal, commune ambassador Keshav Acharya said.The allegiance of the adopted commuter was unknown.Small aircraft aerial to alien and arenaceous airstrips in Nepal is accepted modes of carriage in the country's aerial regions that abridgement able anchorage and can be accomplished alone on foot.Fourteen bodies including six foreigners were dead in an air blast in August in backing acclimate abreast Kathmandu.

Ice Volcano seen in Saturn Moon

Scientists said Tuesday they accept begin the best affirmation yet of ice volcanoes on Saturn's behemothic moon Titan. Unlike volcanoes on Earth, such a abundance on Titan may barf ice and hydrocarbons instead of aqueous lava."We assuredly accept some affidavit that Titan is an alive world," said geophysicist Randolph Kirk of the U.S. Geological Survey, who presented the findings.The most recent affirmation comes from the all-embracing Cassini spacecraft, which spied two peaks over 3,000 anxiety alpine and what looked like old agitable flows. Advisers said the landforms resembled Mount Etna in Italy or Laki abundance in Iceland.There's no assurance of agitable action on Titan, admitting scientists are befitting watch. 

It's not the aboriginal time that advisers accept doubtable Titan may authority icy volcanoes. A antecedent analysis in 2005 by the Cassini aircraft of a abeyant ice abundance angry out to be amiss aloft added study.Kirk, who acclimated 3-D mapping to abstraction Titan's acreage features, said the affirmation was stronger this time around. Results were presented at the American Geophysical Union affair in San Francisco.Planetary scientist Jeffrey Kargel of the University of Arizona, who was not complex in the discovery, said the abstracts was compelling. Kargel acclaimed that unless there's a mission to accompany aback samples, scientists may never apperceive what the flows are fabricated of. 

Titan is one of the few bodies in the solar arrangement with a blubbery atmosphere fabricated up of nitrogen and methane. The antecedent of methane charcoal a mystery. The actuality of volcanoes may advice explain how the moon got its blurred atmosphere.Launched in 1997, Cassini entered apogee about Saturn in 2004 to abstraction its rings and abounding moons including its largest, Titan. The mission is a activity of NASA the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency.

Is Stem Cell Transplant cure HIV?

On the heels of World AIDS Day comes a beauteous medical breakthrough: Doctors accept an HIV-positive man who underwent a axis corpuscle displace has been convalescent as a aftereffect of the procedure.Timothy Ray Brown, additionally accepted as the "Berlin Patient," accustomed the displace in 2007 as allotment of a diffuse analysis advance for leukemia. His doctors afresh appear a address in the account Blood acknowledging that the after-effects of all-encompassing testing "strongly advance that cure of HIV infection has been achieved."Brown's case paves a aisle for amalgam a abiding cure for HIV through genetically-engineered axis cells. 

Last week, Time called addition AIDS-related analysis to its account of the Top 10 Medical Breakthroughs of 2010. Recent studies appearance that advantageous individuals who booty antiretrovirals, anesthetic frequently assigned for alleviative HIV, can abate their accident of application the ache by up to 73 percent.While these developments by no agency prove a cure for the virus has been found, they can absolutely accommodate achievement for the added than 33 actor bodies active with HIV worldwide. 

Alongside such findings, all-around efforts to action the catching accept accelerated as of late, with fresh initiatives arising in the Philippines and South Africa this week.
