    U.S. Navy intercepts Russian bombers flying near ships
    Associated Press
    Feb. 12, 2008 07:06 AM

    WASHINGTON - U.S. fighter planes intercepted two Russian bombers, including one that buzzed an American aircraft carrier in the western Pacific during the weekend, The Associated Press has learned.

    A U.S. military official says that one Russian Tupolev 95 flew directly over the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz twice, at a low altitude of about 2,000 feet, while another bomber circled about 58 miles out. The official was speaking on condition of anonymity because the reports on the flights were classified as secret.

    The Saturday incident, which never escalated beyond the flyover, comes amid heightened tensions between the United States and Russia over U.S. plans for a missile defense system based in Poland and the Czech Republic.

    In Moscow, the RIA Novosti news agency reported Tuesday that the head of the Russian Air Force information service, Alexander Drobyshevsky, said the Russian bombers "were carrying out their assigned flights" and in strict compliance with the international airspace rules. "We are surprised by the noise that has been raised (over the flights)," he was quoted as saying.

    Such Russian encounters with U.S. ships were common during the Cold War, but have been rare since then. Russia revived the Soviet-era practice of long-range patrols by strategic bombers over the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans last August.

    The bombers were among four Russian Tupolev 95s launched from Ukrainka in the middle of the night, including one that Japanese officials say violated their country's airspace over an uninhabited island south of Tokyo.

    U.S. officials tracked and monitored the bombers as two flew south along the Japanese coast, and two others flew ****her east, coming closer to the Nimitz and the guided missile cruiser USS Princeton.

    As the bombers got about 500 miles out from the U.S. ships, four F/A-18 fighters were launched from the Nimitz, the official said. The fighters intercepted the Russian bombers about 50 miles south of the Nimitz.

    At least two U.S. F/A-18 Hornets trailed the bomber as it came in low over the Nimitz twice, while one or two of the other U.S. fighters followed the second bomber as it circled.

    The official said there were no verbal communications between the U.S. and the Russians, and the Pentagon has not heard of any protests being filed by the United States. Historically, diplomatic protests were not filed in such incidents because they were so common during the Cold War era.

    This is the first time Russian Tupolevs have flown over or interacted with a U.S. carrier since 2004.

    In that incident, a Russian Tupolev flew over the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk in the Sea of Japan on Jan. 29, 2004. Since then, however, relations between the U.S. and Russia have deteriorated to their worst point since the Cold War, largely due to the United States' plans to put a radar system in the Czech Republic and 10 missile defense interceptors in Poland.

    The U.S. has defended the plan as necessary to protect its European allies from possible attacks by Iran. But the Kremlin has condemned the proposal, saying it would threaten Russia's security.

    "We are being forced to take retaliatory steps," said Russian President Vladimir Putin, who also warned that a new arms race is under way.

    Japan, meanwhile, filed a formal protest with the Russian Embassy in Tokyo after Saturday's incident, saying that one of the Russian bombers crossed into Japanese airspace for three minutes. Russia has denied there was an intrusion.

      New Duck-Billed Dino Discovered in Mexico

      A new species of duck-billed dinosaur unearthed in Mexico is helping scientists fill in gaps in the fossil record of the Age of Dinosaurs.

      The creature, dubbed Velafrons coahuilensis, was a massive plant-eater belonging to a larger group of duck-billed dinosaurs called hadrosaurs.

      The dino's species name comes from the region of Mexico where it was found, Coahuila. Little is known about the region's ancient animal and plant life because low rates of erosion have kept fossils hidden under layers of rock. But V. coahuilensis and other fossil finds are helping to shed light on this murky part of North American history.

      "Dinosaurs from this particular period are important because this is a time that is relatively poorly understood," said Don Brinkman, a project researcher from Canada's Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology who is studying the non-dinosaur vertebrates found at the site, including turtles, fish and lizards. "The locality in Mexico goes a long way to filling in a gap in our knowledge of the record of changes in dinosaur assemblages throughout the Late Cretaceous era."

      The new species of dinosaur is fully described in the December issue of the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.

      Split continent

      V. coahuilensis, one of the first dinosaurs to be named from Mexico, was discovered in the early 1990s in a rock unit known as the Cerro del Pueblo Formation, which dates from about 71.5 to 72.5 million years ago, in the late Cretaceous.

      During this period, a warm, shallow sea covered the central, low-lying portions of North America, splitting the continent in two.

      The region of Mexico where V. coahuilensis was found was at the southernmost tip of the peninsula-like western landmass, called Laramidia. Now a desert, the area was then a humid estuary, where ocean sal****er met freshwater from rivers.

      Large bonebeds of jumbled dinosaur skeletons suggest some of the animals died en masse during periodic powerful storms, like those that pummel the southern tips of Africa and South America today.

      "The region was periodically hammered by monstrous storms, devastating miles of fertile coastline, apparently killing off entire herds of dinosaurs" said project team member Scott Sampson of the Utah Museum of Natural History.

      North American first

      The discovery of V. coahuilensis marks the first crested duck-billed dinosaur ever found in North America. Based on the development of its bones, paleontologists think the specimen was not yet fully grown. Still, the youngster would have spanned an imposing 25 feet in length, suggesting adults grew to a whopping 30 to 35 feet long.

      Unlike other animals whose nose bones lie in front of their eyes, crested duck-bills' noses rested atop their skulls.

      "The crested duck-billed dinosaurs are an extraordinary example of vertebrate evolution," said project member Terry Gates, also of the Utah Museum.

      Scientists are unsure what the fan-shaped crest on V. coahuilensis's head was used for, but some think it could have been for attracting mates, with the animal's complex series of nasal passages acting like a musical instrument.

      Along with V. coahuilensis, recent expeditions to the Cerro del Pueblo Formation have uncovered the remains of a second kind of duck-billed dino "” a Triceratops-like plant-eating horned dinosaur, large tyrannosaurs, small Velociraotor-like predators and the largest assemblage of dinosaur tracks known in Mexico.

            Rapper Lil Wayne indicted on felony drug charges
            The Associated Press
            Tucson, Arizona | Published: 02.12.2008

            YUMA "” Rapper Lil Wayne has been indicted by a Yuma County grand jury on felony drug and weapons charges.

            Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., was charged with one count each of possession of a narcotic drug for sale, possession of dangerous drugs, misconduct involving weapons and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the indictment.

            Carter pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Friday.

            His attorney, James Tilson, said Tuesday that Carter's legal team plans to look at the state's evidence and figure out if any motions need to be filed. Meanwhile, Carter was continuing to keep his concert schedule.
            "He is currently touring as we speak," Tilson said.

            Carter's next scheduled court appearance will be a March 7 status hearing.

            The rapper's tour bus was stopped Jan. 22 at a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint near Dateland, Ariz., 78 miles east of Yuma.
            A search of the bus by Drug Enforcement Administration agents yielded nearly four ounces of marijuana, just over an ounce of cocaine, 41 grams of Ecstasy and miscellaneous drug paraphernalia. DEA agents then arrested Carter.

            Officials also found a .40-caliber pistol registered to Carter, who has a concealed weapons permit in Florida.

            In October, Carter and several other rappers were named in a federal lawsuit filed by music publishing companies, accusing them of sampling other artists' songs without paying licensing fees.

              Illegal Immigrants Good Mortgage Risk


              Some banks allow illegal immigrants to obtain a home mortgage even if they don't have a Social Security number. While the borrower's citizenship status may be undocumented, their ability to pay is thoroughly checked out.

              Surprisingly, illegal immigrants are often a good risk.

                Why is it if you or I apply for a loan we are required to give our SSN number. If you don't have one how can they run any type of credit check? At least one that would carry some weight when borrowing hundreds of thousands. Seems to me there is some general rule bending and preferential treatment going on here. This would not fly in the normal arena. Try asking for a sizable loan without allowing the lender to run a credit check and see what happens. Maybe we all need to go to the places that have the 'se habla' signs hanging up and forget English while in their office. Free money!

                This was a fools bet for many lenders since the mortgage fiasco is now becoming obvious.
                ITA. Bank of the Aliens (aka Bank of America) Wells Fargo, and a few other "American Banks" are counting on their buddies in Government to fleece the taxpayers to recoup their losses. It would not surprise me if Senor Boosh approved this farce in order to prop up the economy with a false bottom so that it would appear that his "policies" were the best. Yet another reason that the republican party is falling apart and will lose the election in November.
