Dr. Ellis maintained
a demanding schedule late into his life.
“I’ll retire when I’m dead,”
he said at 90.
“While I’m alive,
I want to keep doing
what I want to do. See people.
Give workshops. Write and preach
the gospel according to St. Albert.”

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
By JOHN SCHWARTZ
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.

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.
