One of the girls (ages ranging from 14 to 17) taken during the raid on the Yearning For Zion (YFZ) ranch Eldorado, Texas, went into labor under guard of the state. The teenager was one of 463 children taken from the ranch and one of the 53 teenage girls that has either already given birth or had was pregnant. Now, obviously, she is a mother as a teenager. Due to the DNA testing and the large number of children involved, this case will be a very long and dragged out process.
After 27 years locked up in prison for a crime he did not commit, James Lee Woodard was cleared of the 1980 murder of his girlfriend, becoming the 18th person in Dallas County to have his conviction over-turned. That is more than any other county nationally, according to the Innocence Project, a New York-based legal nonprofit that specializes in overturning wrongful convictions, particularly using DNA.
Keep up the good work, Innocence Project.
A company in Georgia s trying to replace DNA testsing with a means of finding out much of the same information. It would be a great tool for detectives, forensic experts and the military. No one expects it to replace DNA analysis, and representatives of the company suggest it is not meant to.
The new method analyzes antibodies. Each person has a unique antibody bar code that can be taken from blood, saliva or other bodily fluids. Antibodies are proteins used by the body to fend off viruses or otherwise clean the system.
The scientists say an antibody profile can yield results faster and more cost-affectively and be performed in the field with minimal training. National lab administrators have licensed the technology exclusively to Identity Sciences LLC in Alpharetta, Georgia.

You heard it right. Tom Cruise and Cher met at a White House fund-raising event in the 1980s when he was 23 and she was 39. They began to date, although it was not widely noticed or reported at the time.
“I did date him [Cruise]. He was just the most adorable man you can imagine. He wasn’t into Scientology then. I don’t understand the whole Scientology thing.”
While being interviewed by Oprah, Che also added, “I was crazy about him.”
She went on to say: “He was shy. He said he felt like such a boob in school and nobody talked to him. We went on a date once for dinner in a New York restaurant and the waitress was from his old school. He told me she never talked to him back in school, but now he was recognized, he got all her attention.”
Cher suggested that it could have been a great romance, because she was crazy about him at the time.
The judge who sentenced Saddam Hussein to death has condemned the way the dictator was put to death.
“It was uncivilized and backward,” Chief Judge Raouf Abdul Rahman told reporters on Tuesday as they awaited the start of the latest trial of Saddam’s colleagues and cohorts.
Hussein, a Sunni Muslim, was hanged for his role in those killings which took place in a mostly Shiite town just north of Baghdad. The killings were a backlash after attempted assassination attempt. During the time in which hostilities between Sunnis and Shiites were erupting, the hanging occured on December 30, 2006, when Sunnis began celebrating the religious holiday of Eid al-Adha.
A video showed Saddam being taunted by Shiites just prior to his execution, including bitter exchanges between the condemned and the Shiite witnesses. After Hussein was hanged, Shiite witnesses danced around his body, chanting celebratory slogans.
For the first time in Chile or anywhere for that matter, a mayor plans to give out free Viagra to men are over the age of 60, claiming it would improve their “quality of life” four times a month.”This has to do with quality of life and it’s done responsibly. It’s not just like handing out candy at the corner,” Gonzalo Navarrete, a physician and mayor of the poor town of Lo Prado south of Santiago, told Las Ultimas Noticias daily.
According to the mayor, men who are 60 years and older may have up to four Viagra pills a month after undergoing a complete medical exam, as to avoid potentially harmful side effects.
“We’ll give out four, 50 milligram pills, in other words, for four sexual relationships per month,” Navarrete said, adding that the program would have a starting cost of about 20,000 dollars.
The mayor said the idea came from listening to local, older men complain about not getting enough sex.
The original guitar hero, Jimi Hendrix, stars in his own sex video that was recently discovered. In the video, Hendrix is in a threesome. Oddly enough, he never removes his infamous headband even after shedding everything else.
Recently, there has been a call by German historians to republish Adolf Hitler’s infamous manifesto, “Mein Kampf,” in the country before the copyright lapses in 2015. The book’s publication has been banned in Germany since World War II, and its resale is regulated with an iron fist.
German copyright law says that an author’s work become public domain 70 years after his or her death. Hitler killed himself in his Berlin bunker on April 30, 1945, so that deadline is approaching quickly.
Before the arrival of that date, historians want Bavaria, which controls the copyright because Hitler’s last known, official address was in Munich, to authorize an annotated version of “Mein Kampf.”
Historians say that a thorough, academic presentation that places the book in a historical context would be the best defense against radical right-wing groups and neo-Nazis who might want to use the book to advance racist agendas.
