Front Page: Relief Lands in Myanmar, Putin Confirmed as PM, Stem Cell Award in CA

  • Relief Lands in Myanmar: UN relief supplies touched down in Myanmar this morning, though US military planes loaded with aid are still denied access by the country's isolationist regime. The junta also continues to stall visas for UN teams wanting to enter the country and ensure that the aid supplies reach victims amid fears that food and water shortages could push the death toll above 100,000. The prime minister of Thailand has offered to negotiate on the US's behalf to persuade the junta to accept their aid. US aid is currently at a staging area in Thailand, waiting. The coordinator of UN humanitarian aid said, "it is imperative at this point that they do open up and allow a major international relief effort to get under way."
  • Putin Confirmed as PM: Russia's parliament has just easily approved former President Vladimir Putin to be its new prime minister. Russia's new president Dmitry Medvedev nominated Putin almost immediately. The State Duma (lower house) voted 392-56 for Putin's appointment just after a speech where Putin promised parliament "single-digit inflation within a few years". Putin also said Russia could overtake the UK's GDP this year and become the world's sixth-largest economy.
  • Stem Cell Award in CA: California awarded $271 million in grants slated to build 12 stem cell research centers. The awards, announced yesterday, are the biggest sum of money awarded by California’s taxpayer-backed stem cell program. The program is scheduled to spend about $3 billion over about a decade. The grants are needed as the Bush administration prohibits federal financing of research using any human embryonic stem cells derived after August 2001 so any work involving newer stem cell lines cannot share any supplies or space with a project that is federally financed.

Wanna start a pool on who dies first, Putin or Medvedev? That's got to be an uncomfortable relationship deep down.

We know nothing of Myanmar and they want to keep it that way. This is so sad for their population, but the junta leaders don't want anyone to know what civil rights violations they have imposed all these years. They'd rather let the masses starve, I guess, since it means more for the ruling class. THIS is why freedom and democracy are so important to the world and we must NOT allow Islam, socialism, marxism to grow in this Country. Which means, vote for McCain or RonPaul. Putin is trying to create his own dynasty. This is not the best political news. The USofA will need to walk a tightrope with Russia so that the old Russia doesn't recreate the Cold War era. Stem Cell Research on ADULT stem cells shows so much more promise than with embryonic stem cells, but still those who wish to deny an unborn's right to life get their digs in and take enormous amounts of money out. Embryonic stem cell research is a feeding frenzy of hair-brained ideas that have no basis in science. All of their experiments fail, but like true idiots, they keep repeating the same thing, over and over and over again, expecting a different result. GREED, it's all about GREED.
