Has anyone else noticed that the reporting of Coalition casualties has changed drastically in the last week or so?
Articles on BBC and other mainstream news sites are now reporting things like "a dozen U.S. Soldiers have been killed since May 1st." -or- "About 20 Coalition troops have died since Bush declared the end of hostilities at the beginning of May.". A couple of weeks ago the numbers were much higher!

There will be space hotels, and orbital O'Neill colonies, and science towns on Mars. But they won't be built by the plucky entrepreneurs with tables at space-advocacy conferences. They'll be built by companies like Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR), Bechtel and Booz Allen Hamilton. Companies that are effectively wholly-owned subsidiaries of the US Department of Defense - or vice versa.

"Many private American households have exhausted their credit limits..The average debt service of a US household has reached a record of 14 percent of disposable income. Altogether the private debt of American households rose to an historic high of $1.7 trillion.. If US citizens put aside nine percent of their disposable income at the beginning of the 90s, the savings rate at the end of the decade was slightly above two percent..Very different signals are given to American consumers because no one knows the seirousness of the situation."
Bt corn has been associated with up to an 80% reduction in piglet birth rate on mid-western farms. The calving rate decreased by 20 to 30% when it was fed to the cows on one farm. On another farm the spontaneous abortion rate in the cows was very high when they were fed Bt and Round Up Ready GE corn. The Agricultural Minister from Denmark was informed of this negative effect of the Bt corn on pigs last week. Denmark is being pressured to take GE corn from the US. Denmark is willing to pay for the segregation of the corn and the companies say they won't do this.
