Laila Speaks Her Story

Sold into prostitution aged nine, condemned by an Iranian judge to hang at 18, Leila was saved by a group of human rights activists.

"I was nine years old when my mother started selling me. I did not understand what was happening."

Today Leila is a young woman of 22. For the past two years she has been cared for by a private home for destitute young women in Tehran, Omid E Mehr, which means Hope.

"My mother would say: 'Let's go out to buy things, like chocolates'. She would actually trick me. I was a tiny girl. She just took me to places."

Leila still finds it difficult to talk about the past. But we know that the "places" she speaks of are where she was sold for sex and raped.

Leila became the main source of income for a family of five.

The lawyer, who eventually saved Leila's life, Shadi Sadr, is a controversial figure in Iran.

18 death in 22 year by a Single person

A 68-year-old man has been arrested by French police on suspicion of murdering 18 people, most of them homosexuals, between 1980 and 2002, officials say.

The suspect, Nicolas Panard, is alleged to have killed 11 people in the Alsace region, four others in neighbouring Franche-Comte, and three near Paris.

Mr Panard was detained on Tuesday in the eastern Alsace city of Mulhouse.

His alleged accomplice, Slim Fezzani, is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for a separate murder.

Several other people are also wanted in connection with the case.

Police said Mr Panard and Mr Fezzani were currently being questioned by police in the Franche-Comte town of Montbeliard.

The deputy state prosecutor of Montbeliard, Jean-Marc Gervason, told the news agency that the two men had denied the accusations and that there was "no formal proof" linking them to the crimes.

Mr Gervason said more information would become available on Thursday afternoon, when he is due to hold a news conference.

President Bush signed a deal setting the foundation for a potential long-term U.S. troop presence in Iraq, with details to be negotiated over matters that have defined the war debate at home how many U.S. forces will stay in the country, and for how long.

The agreement between Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki confirms that the United States and Iraq will hash out an "enduring" relationship in military, economic and political terms. Details of that relationship will be negotiated in 2008, with a completion goal of July, when the U.S. intends to finish withdrawing the five combat brigades sent in 2007 as part of the troop buildup that has helped curb sectarian violence.

What U.S. troops are doing, how many troops are required to do that, are bases required, which partners will join them all these things are on the negotiating table," said Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute, President Bush's adviser on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Make your holiday shopping Better

Since, I'm so much attracted to online shopping just recently, I might not know a lot about online shopping. And these thing I'm going to tell you here might not be new for you but I know there might be plenty of people who does not know about this. Online shopping sites have several discount offers, promo codes, festival offers and coupon codes occasionally or all the time. Using those offers either can make your shopping easy or sometimes saves big money. You can for example get dell coupons to get discount from dell's online store. Both big and small online shopping sites provide such coupon codes and offers but such things are not easy to find. I mean you will not normally see those offers in the those sites too.

Couponchief provides all those kind of coupons and discount offer information to you. The site is specially for the user who do online shopping and want to have some discount on such subjects. Couponchief provides promo codes or discount coupons for all the major online stores and the easy navigation on their site will help you to find what exactly you wanted.

So, the Christmas is ahead, Santa is not gonna provide you any discount in stores, but Couponchief may.

Google's Googly

Google wants our brains. In the meantime, though, it will settle for our hard drives. The Wall Street Journal reports that the company is preparing a service that would let users store on its computers essentially all of the files they might keep on their personal-computers, such as word processing documents, digital music, video clips and images.
Users could access their files via the Internet from different computers and mobile devices when they sign on with a password, and share them online with friends.
Some of the storage space would be free, with additional storage allotments available for a fee. It could be released as early as a few months from now, according to some leaky people who declined to share their names.
Google already does some of this through its existing Web applications, but this service would tie everything together with a single search box. Other companies offer various Internet-based file storage services, but most have been slow to catch on.

Not Gang Rape, Extra Marital Affair

Saudi justice officials say a woman who was sentenced to prison and flogging after she was gang-raped has now confessed to an extramarital affair.

The case of the unidentified women, 19, drew international criticism after an appeal increased her 90-lash sentence to 200 lashes and six months' jail.

The justice ministry statement rejected "foreign interference" in the case.

It insisted the ruling was legal and that the women had "confessed to doing what God has forbidden".

The statement carried by the official press agency late on Saturday said the sentence would be carried out in accordance with Saudi law.

"The Saudi justice minister expressed his regret about the media reports over the role of the women in this case which put out false information and wrongly defend her," the statement said.

"The charged girl is a married woman who confessed to having an affair with the man she was caught with."

Business is being easier

Enchanted (Movie Review)

Giselle (delectable Amy Adams) is a princess ejected from her magic kingdom by a curse from her evil potential mother-in-law (Susan Sarandon) in the inspired Disney fairy-tale mash-up Enchanted. And when the heroine pops up in New York City, dazed by her transformation from animated cartoon girl to live-action beauty, she's put up for the night by a stranger, a harried divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey). But there's a hygiene problem. He's the distracted single parent to a little girl (Rachel Covey), his girlfriend (Idina Menzel) is on his case for more commitment — and with no time to clean, his apartment is a mess. So Giselle does what any classically trained, sweet-natured Disney heroine would do: With a lilting yodel, she summons her charmed animal friends to help her tidy up, and they sing, sing, sing while they toil. Of course, this being New York, the wildlife workforce consists of rats, pigeons, mice, and well-organized cockroaches.

At least nine people, including three other Italian soldiers, were reported wounded in the attack, which targeted a bridge the Italians were working on.

The Lowest Rate of Murder in Four Decades

New York City is on track to have fewer than 500 murders in 2007, the lowest annual rate in four decades, according to police department figures.

There had been 428 killings this year as of 18 November, compared to 511 at the same point last year.

Murders peaked in 1990, when 2,262 killings were recorded, making New York the murder capital of the US.

According to the New York Times, of the 212 murders in 2007 analysed so far, only 35 were committed by a stranger.

Most of the killings involved disputes between family members, criminals or rival drug gangs.

A majority of both assailants and victims had previously been arrested, the New York Times reported, and more than half were black.

Of the 412 people attacked this year, more than two-thirds were shot, the paper reports. The other 16 murder victims recorded this year died of injuries received in previous years.

The Sri Lankan government has banned a leading Tamil charity

The Sri Lankan government has banned a leading Tamil charity because it says it is funding the Tamil Tigers.

It is not clear what effect the ban will have on the Tamil Rehabilitation Organisation (TRO), which is based in Tamil Tiger-controlled territory.

Last week the United States said it was going to freeze the TRO's assets.

Meanwhile, the military says it has killed 18 Tamil Tigers in the latest fighting. The Tigers are fighting for a separate homeland for minority Tamils.

"We have found this organisation is funding the LTTE [Tamil Tigers], so now we have decided to proscribe the TRO in Sri Lanka at yesterday's cabinet meeting," cabinet spokesman Anura Priyadarsana Yapa said on Thursday, to the reports.

The TRO came under international media attention after it played a pivotal role in the relief effort in Tamil areas after the 2004 Asian tsunami.

It has long been controversial.

Expatriate Tamils contribute money to its branches in many Western countries.

Lets go Home, Time to Return

An estimated 1,000 people a day are returning across Iraq's borders having previously moving abroad to escape the violence, Iraqi authorities say.

Most of the returnees are coming from Syria - and very few from Jordan, where better-off refugees tended to go.

An improving security situation - but also the lack of job opportunities for Iraqis in Syria - may account for the move, correspondents say.

However, at least five people died in a bombing in Ramadi on Wednesday. A suicide bomber slammed a vehicle into a courthouse compound, police said.

The attack came as a sudden return to violence in a region which has become markedly more peaceful since Sunni tribesmen joined forces with the US military to tackle al-Qaeda militants last year.

Over 4.4m Iraqis are thought to have been displaced by violence since the US-led invasion of 2003. Iraq's ministry of migration told the reporter about 1,000 people were returning every day.

Bush involvement ??????

A former White House press secretary has said the US president was involved in misinforming the public over the leaking of a CIA agent's identity.

In an excerpt from his book, Scott McClellan says George W Bush helped mislead the public over the role in the affair of two White House aides.

The CIA agent, Valerie Plame, says her identity was leaked because her diplomat husband opposed the Iraq war. The White House said Mr Bush would not ask anyone to pass false information.

Mr McClellan's book is not scheduled for publication until April and the excerpt released was brief. It refers to a White House press conference he attended in 2003.

At the conference, Mr McClellan told journalists that the two aides Karl Rove and Lewis "Scooter" Libby were "not involved" in leaking Ms Plame's identity.

The excerpt reads: "There was one problem. It was not true.

UN continue Peacekeeping Mission in Somalia

The UN Security Council says it will continue to plan for a peacekeeping mission to Somalia, despite the secretary-general's opposition.

Ban Ki-moon said earlier this month that it was too dangerous to send troops to the war-torn country.He instead urged countries to help the existing African Union mission.On Saturday, Islamist insurgents armed with machine guns and grenades attacked the AU base in Mogadishu.

"It is against the law and we call on the international community to act on this situation." Mr Kimanthi told to the reporters.

EU Warning: Kosovo Could Be Isolated

Foreign ministers from several EU countries have urged Kosovo Albanians not to declare unilateral independence following Saturday's elections.

Independence without foreign support could isolate Kosovo, they warned.A party led by a former Kosovo Albanian rebel is set to win the polls, which were boycotted by the Serb minority. Hashim Thaci's party seeks to declare independence from Serbia after 10 December - the UN deadline for ethnic Albanians and Serbs to reach a deal.

Kosovo is formally a part of Serbia but has been run by the United Nations since 1999 when Nato ejected Serbian forces from the province. Ethnic Albanians, who make up some 90% of Kosovo's population of two million people, have been pushing for the province's independence.

Members of the Serbian minority oppose the move. They heeded a call by Serbia's government to boycott the poll. The 27-member EU is divided on the issue of independence for Kosovo, while the US backs the move.

Journalist found dead

A coroner in Sydney has ruled that five Australian-based journalists, known as the Balibo Five, were deliberately killed in East Timor in 1975.

The deputy coroner of New South Wales, Dorelle Pinch, said there was enough evidence to constitute a war crime.

She said two Australians, two Britons and a New Zealander were killed by Indonesian special forces to stop them exposing the invasion of East Timor.

Official Indonesian reports always said they were killed in crossfire.

For more than three decades, the families of the Balibo Five have sought to correct the historical record and to prove that the newsmen were executed rather than accidentally killed in the heat of battle.

Now, they have finally been vindicated.

The court found that Britons Brian Peters and Malcolm Rennie, Australians Greg Shackleton and Tony Stewart, and New Zealander Gary Cunningham were deliberately shot or stabbed.

Fifth time

Democrat Bill Richardson often touts his four Nobel Peace Prize nominations on the presidential campaign trail.

Now he has a fifth.

Democratic Rep. Bart Gordon of Tennessee said he has sent a nomination packet to the Nobel Committee in honor of Richardson's diplomatic efforts with countries like Sudan and North Korea.

"He's well deserving," said Gordon, who got to know Richardson when they served in Congress together. "It's just a continuation of his willingness to continue to go around the world, whether it's a matter of hostages or other tense situations, and work with all parties."

This year's Nobel prize winner also came from a background in presidential politics; former Vice President Al Gore shared the honor with six scientists for their work to raise awareness about global warming.

A nomination doesn't necessarily mean much. According to the Nobel Committee's database, previous nominees include dictators Joseph Stalin and Benito Mussolini.

Flying Palace

In the annals of excess, it could be a new high: a more than $300 million, super-sized luxury airplane, bought and outfitted solely for the private comfort of a Saudi Arabian billionaire.

Once done, the Airbus A380, the world's biggest passenger plane, will be a "flying palace" for Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the manufacturer announced Monday.

Airbus SAS would not give a specific price tag for the VIP double-decker jet, with its football field-length wings, saying only that it would cost more than the aircraft's list price of $320 million.

That doesn't even include the money the prince will spend to custom fit the nearly 6,000-square foot plane to include whatever he wants. The options include private bedrooms, a movie theater or even a gym with a jacuzzi. He'll also need a flight crew of about 15 to operate the luxury liner.

ust spending cash for bin Talal -- Citigroup Inc.'s biggest individual shareholder and the world's 13th richest person with assets around $20 billion.

The White House mishandled Republican Party-sponsored e-mail accounts

The White House said Wednesday it had mishandled Republican Party-sponsored e-mail accounts used by nearly two dozen presidential aides, resulting in the loss of an undetermined number of e-mails concerning official White House business.

Congressional investigators looking into the administration's firing of eight federal prosecutors already had the nongovernmental e-mail accounts in their sights because some White House aides used them to help plan the U.S. attorneys' ouster. Democrats were questioning whether the use of the GOP-provided e-mail accounts was proof that the firings were political.

Democrats also have been asking if White House officials are purposely conducting sensitive official presidential business via nongovernmental accounts to get around a law requiring preservation - and eventual disclosure - of presidential records. The announcement of the lost e-mails - a rare admission of error from the Bush White House at a delicate time for the administration's relations with Democratically controlled Capitol Hill - provides new fodder for inquiry on this front.

Award Season

The halls of most major retail operations have been decked with holly, cardboard snowflakes, and cartoon turkeys, which can mean only one thing: The Academy Awards are coming!
Best Actor Oscar nods, after all, are supposed to be reserved for guys who play tortured heroes, morally ambiguous villains, and outsize real-life characters (bonus points if they've got well-documented quirks or accents). They don't go to romantic comedy leads, right?
But as Dan, a widowed father of three who finds an unexpected (and unexpectedly complicated) chance at love, Carell is magnificent. His character's repeated attempts to derail his teenage daughter's love affair are hilarious without ever feeling forced, and yet his warbled last verse of Pete Townshend's "Let My Love Open the Door" during a family talent show reduced me to tears. As Owen Gleiberman points out in his A- review of Dan in Real Life.

U Visa

A 13-year-old illegal immigrant who fled to his native Mexico amid a sex scandal with his schoolteacher could be eligible to return to the United States under a new visa the U.S. government started granting the week before he disappeared.
The visa helps illegal immigrants who are victims of sex crimes. If the boy, who spent most of his life in Nebraska, qualifies, he could stay legally in the United States for four years and eventually apply for permanent residency.
"It's a win-win," U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services spokeswoman Marilu Cabrera said of the so-called "U" visa. "It helps us and law enforcement be able to solve a crime, and it certainly helps the individual who is a victim of a crime."

Obama's Plan to increase the amount of income tax

Democrat Barack Obama said that if elected he will push to increase the amount of income that is taxed to provide monthly Social Security benefits.
Obama and other Democratic presidential candidates previously have signaled support for this idea.
But during an interview Obama said subjecting more of a person's income to the payroll tax is the option he would push for if elected president.
He objected to benefit cuts or a higher retirement age.
"I think the best way to approach this is to adjust the cap on the payroll tax so that people like myself are paying a little bit more and people who are in need are protected," the Illinois senator said.
"That is the option that I will be pushing forward."
Currently, only the first $97,500 of a person's annual income is taxed. The amount is scheduled to rise to $102,000 next year.
Obama's proposal could include a gap or "doughnut hole" to shield middle-income earners from paying more in taxes, he said.

Power Talks

Six world powers holding talks in London on Iran's nuclear programme agreed Friday to push toward a third round of U.N. sanctions against Tehran if the stand-off persisted.

Political directors from the "E3" of Britain, France and Germany, plus the United States, Russia and China, backed the drive for a third United Nations Security Council resolution and vote on Iran, unless forthcoming reports showed "a positive outcome," said a spokesman for Britain's Foreign Office.

Meanwhile, Washington urged Beijing and Moscow to agree to a new set of sanctions, after what the United States said was a disappointing response by the two countries at the London talks.

The six powers again urged Tehran to end the stand-off through diplomacy, the Foreign Office spokesman said.

The political directors called on European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana to hold fresh talks with Iran's negotiator Saeed Jalili and report back later this month.

Must see places in UK

Who does not want to see United Kingdom? I've always dream about that. So many people used to come around my place from UK to visit, and I like English people. They might have been good to me because I'm still a child but they talked very gentally about me and they were always eager to know about the place from me. That was my childhood, Its been already lots of years since I left that place and I was reading about the places in United Kingdom. I will definitely go there and enjoy the famous Hotels in London about which I've heard lots of good things from my friends. They've stayed in the hotels in manchester last year when they were on the English travel. They told me that birmingham palace which is a very large palace.They've even gave me informations about a good hotels in brimingham so It will be easy for me to visit UK. I've also seen the palace in movies, it looks really nice.

Football is next thing. I love Man United since childhood, so I would visit Manchester and see the at least one game for sure. They also told me that Gothic carvings and gigantic medieval masterpieces are must see places in United Kingdom. Nightlife in UK is another fantastic thing to see. Lots of bars, clubs, discos, opera and music halls which are all popular nocturnal activities. I was so excited to hear  their story, I hope I will make my UK travel till next year.

US can bypass UN on Iraq

The White House said Saturday it would be "not very hard at all" to assemble an alliance to confront Saddam Hussein without the United Nations, a clear signal that President George Bush's patience with the international organization is reaching its limits.

As France, Russia, Mexico and other allies seek to water down his zero-tolerance approach to Iraq, Bush renewed his call for the U.N. to confront Saddam or stand aside while the United States acts.

"If the U.N. does not pass a resolution which holds him to account and that has consequences, then, as I have said in speech after speech after speech, if the U.N. won't act if Saddam Hussein won't disarm we will lead a coalition to disarm him," the president said at the 21-nation Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.

Later, Secretary of State Colin Powell said the prospects for a tough resolution may be slipping away.

"I don't want to say that we're near a solution because it may evade us," he told reporters.

Google's Googaling

What Apple began with its iPhone, Google is hoping to accelerate, with an ambitious plan to transform the software at the heart of cellphones.
The personal computer is climbing off its desktop perch and hopping into the pockets of millions of people. The resulting merger of computing and communications is likely to revolutionize the telecommunications industry as thoroughly as the PC changed the computing world in the early 1980s.
Google, which wants to be as central to the coming wireless Web as it is to today's PC-dominated Internet, announced on Monday that it was leading a broad industry effort to develop new software technologies aimed at turning cellphones into powerful mobile computers.
If successful, the effort will usher in new mobile devices that as the iPhone has done, will make it easier to use the Internet on the go. The phones, which would run on software that Google would give away to phone makers, could be cheaper and easier to customize.

American Gangster: Cocktail Mix(Film Review)

Directed by Ridley Scott, and adapted by screenwriter Steven Zaillian from a New York magazine story entitled ''The Return of Superfly,'' American Gangster is meticulous and detailed, a drug-world epic that holds you from moment to moment, immersing you in the intricate and sleazy logistics of crime. Yet the movie isn't quite enthralling; it's more like the ghost version of a '70s classic. Scott nails the grit and clutter of the era — the bombed-out buildings, the litter and the rusty pay phones — and he structures the film almost pointillistically, with brief, heightened, coruscating scenes that flow into each other. American Gangster unfolds on parallel tracks, cutting back and forth between Frank Lucas' reign and the stubborn quest of Richie Roberts (Russell Crowe), a terse and scruffy last-honest-narcotics-cop-in-New York, to hunt him down. It's like The Godfather and The French Connection all mashed in a blender, along with a heavy helping of synthetic cocktail mix.

Washington might be playing a senator, or Malcolm X all over again; his performance is smooth, confident, and more than a little familiar. Even as a gangster, he doesn't transform — he doesn't release his inner thug. He's still every inch Denzel, all dour nobility.
