The second act opens before dawn tomorrow,

100m miles from Earth,

when Spirit, a US robot rover the size of golf buggy,

hurtles through the thin atmosphere

and bounces to a halt on the parched deserts of Mars,

to begin a search for water on the arid planet.

The third act of the drama is revealed later that day

when a European spacecraft called Mars Express

completes a series of huge elliptical swings

around the red planet and settles down to a steady polar orbit

which will allow it to probe the secrets of the Martian air and rock.

Judge Orders U.S. Military

to Stop ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’


October 12, 2010

The New York Times



A federal judge on Tuesday ordered the United States military

to stop enforcing the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law

that prohibits openly gay men and women from serving.

Judge Virginia A. Phillips

of Federal District Court for the Central District of California

issued an injunction banning enforcement of the law

and ordered the military to immediately “suspend and discontinue”

any investigations or proceedings to dismiss service members.

In language much like that in her Sept. 9 ruling

declaring the law unconstitutional,

Judge Phillips wrote that the 17-year-old policy

“infringes the fundamental rights of United States service members

and prospective service members”

and violates their rights of due process and freedom of speech.

While the decision is likely to be appealed by the government,

the new ruling represents a significant milestone for gay rights

in the United States.

Six out of 10 women sent to jail while they await trial are acquitted

There is some truth to this.

"It's my personal aim

that Bush is removed from the White House," says Moore,

who has hired former Clinton operatives

as a rapid response unit to any attacks

that impugn the film's integrity.

"But if the movie can inspire a few of the 50% of the Americans

who do not vote to get involved and be engaged,

then that is important."

While the film is far more subtle than Moore's previous work,

there are few who have seen it who believe

it will convert anybody who has not already made up their mind.

But what it could do is galvanise

those who may vote to get organised,

and encourage those not inspired

by the Democratic candidate, John Kerry,

to go to the polls to remove Mr Bush.

When / while


It was partly to try to bring Islam out from the shadows,

and to co-opt its tough-talking leaders,

that Mr Sarkozy set up the French Council of the Muslim Faith

(CFCM) in 2003.

The idea was to give Islam an official voice,

and to temper it by offering recognition.

In one sense, this has worked.

Although the component factions on the council

have spent much time squabbling,

the CFCM helped the government

with its headscarf ban by deciding not to contest it.

Even the UOIF’s decision this week

to issue a unilateral fatwa was a useful appeal for calm.

But the worry now is that radical groups,

unrepresented on the council, may exploit the current anger.



While the suburbs burn


When the French rejected the European Union constitution

earlier this year,

it seemed at the time to be the final humiliation for Mr Chirac.

Less than six months later,

his government has been making headlines around the globe

for its inability to control the riots.

The referendum rejection was seen as a wake-up call

for the governing class from an electorate

that was fed up and fearful.

Now France has delivered one even more shrill.

An underclass rebellion:
The unrest in France’s cities shows that social and policing policy has failed,
as well as integration,
