(Best Syndication) The US military launched a new offensive Tuesday in Diyala province, northeast of Baghdad. The goal of the mission was to kill or capture an estimated 500 -1000 Al Qaeda fighters and insurgents who were holed up in the western suburbs of Baquba.

Stars and Stripes reports that the American ground forces were backed by Apache helicopter gunships and fighter jets. There were three U.S. brigades taking part in the operation, and one Iraqi army brigade is expected to join the fight on Wednesday.

The Americans involved were part of the 30,000 troop surge announced by President Bush back in January. “Here’s the bottom line: Regardless of how many there are, we are going to go after them,” said Brig. Gen. Mick Bednarek, deputy commanding general for operations of the 25th Infantry Division’s Task Force Lightning, which has overall command of the operation.

Blood Clot Drug Helps Prevent Amputation After Frostbite – tPA Used To Reduce Risk In Frost Bite Victims

Deep Frostbite

(Best Syndication) Utah researchers say that a common blood clot-dissolving drug used for stroke or heart attack may help to reduce the risk of amputation following severe frostbite. Right now the standard procedure is rewarming the tissue, but this new research may help save some patients from amputation.

Beginning in 2001 Kevin J. Bruen, M.D., and colleagues at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, began administering the anti-clotting agent tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) to victims of severe frostbite. The patients underwent angiography imaging studies to assess blood flow to the affected limb.

Madagascar - Island Of Unique Wildlife And Extraordinary Gems

In all my travels I have never been to a country that my need to return was so overwhelming. To say the least the country is beautiful, the wildlife unique and the people are very friendly. But the gems are what keeps my thoughts to Madagascar, the fourth largest Island in the World.

My trip was based on the fact that some of the finest pink and blue sapphires ever to come out of the ground were being mined in an area near Llakaka in the southern part of Madagascar. Tom Cushman a friend and fellow gem dealer has been living part time in this country since the sapphire discoveries and was very generous with information which made the idea of this trip easier as Madagascar is far from Western civilization. Much of the islands people live in extreme poverty. Outside the major cities stick huts are the norm. $200 per year is the average income.

Jerry Yang Takes Helm Of Yahoo – Learn Why Company Lost Ground To Google – Blogger, Search, And eMail Services Compared

Yang

(Best Syndication) Yahoo founder and creator, Jerry Yang, has taken the helm of Yahoo! again after a six year absence which saw his search and Internet portal lose its lead to Google. The 38 year old Yang said "I'm ready to dig in and make sure we can take Yahoo to the next level. I'm absolutely not interim. We want someone for the long haul."

So what happened to Yahoo and why does Google make so much more money? Although Yahoo provides decent search results, the Google search algorithm is better. But the problem for Yahoo goes deeper than that. The company came in late on a few innovations which allowed Google to take the lead.

Soon after Google wrapped up their search they began accepting advertising. The company also allowed small and large publishers to present their ads on their site, while Yahoo was basically interested only in the larger sites. Google split the ad revenue with the website owners which motivated an army of content creators.
