Mr Alexander Litvinenko, reputed to have been an Ex-Russian spy who had defected to Britain, died last night in mysterious circumstances. He had alleged many associations between people in high places and organised international crime, implying that President Putin and Romano Prodi among others had been involved personally. He had sought political asylum in UK in 2000 and became a naturalised citizen in October this year, just weeks before his death.

Mr Litvinenko was said to have been investigating the shooting of Russian journalist and human rights activist Anna Politkovskaya, a well-known critic of Russian activities in Chechnya, in her apartment in Moscow October 7, 2006. It is reported that he had met two Russians in a hotel room, one said to be former member of the KGB in connection with the affair and he went on to meet Mario Scaramella at a sushi bar in Piccadilly where some papers were exchanged. Some hours after this he was taken ill.

Mr Litvinenko was admitted to Barnet General Hospital, north London on November 1, 2006 complaining of feeling sick. By November 11, he was said to be suffering from serious poisoning. A week later he was transferred to University College Hospital in central London. A week later he was said to have been poisoned by ingesting thallium, once used in rat poison, but, in the opinion of some doctors, there were signs of radioactive poisoning, including loss of weight and shedding of hair. Various explanations of his condition were offered. Last night he suffered a heart attack, after having left a message blaming President Putin for having him killed.

The radioactive isotope polonium-210 was found in his blood and urine as reported by the United Kingdom’s Health Protection Agency. The post-mortem was cancelled. Subsequently the Agency examined conditions in the hospitals in which Mr Litvinenko has been treated. Police visited the Itsu sushi restaurant in Piccadilly, his home in Muswell Hill and the Millennium Hotel, Grosvenor Square where the meeting on November 1 had been held. Traces of radiocactivity were found in all three places. It is speculated that the polonium was probably eaten by Litvinenko as a substance that could be combined with a salt-like substance, such as polonium nitrate.

It was reported that a meeting had been held in Cabinet Office Briefing Room A (COBRA) used for high level emergency planning and control, to consider the implications of these events. The Foreign Office asked Moscow for a response to the accusation of Russian involvement and President Putin himself dismissed the allegations saying (before the cause of death had been established) that there was no proof of an unnatural death and that the case was being used as a “political provocation”.

Media magnate Rupert Murdoch, managing director and the largest shareholder of News Corporation, claimed that the UK Prime Minister Tony Blair offered his opinions about the BBC in a private conversation with him. According to Murdoch, Blair views BBC World Service broadcasts as portraying America in a negative light, and accusing their coverage of Hurricane Katrina to be used for political statements.

Murdoch, a long-time critic of the BBC, apparently revealed details of his conversation with the Prime Minister during a session of the Clinton Global Initiative in New York. Murdoch’s News Corp. owns Fox News and Sky News, both BBC competitors.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the Prime Minister of Denmark, said on Tuesday that he will seek broad parliamentary support for a national referendum on joining the euro, the common currency of the Eurozone.

“I’m convinced that we need broad support in parliament to hold a referendum, because it’s about the Danish currency and about stability and safety,” he said, speaking at his weekly press conference. “Recent events have shown the necessity to give the population the opportunity to vote on Denmark joining the euro.”

Berlingske Tidende is reporting that Rasmussen is meeting with political leaders to negotiate support for the referendum.

In 1992, Danish voters rejected the Maastrict Treaty in a referendum. It was only able to pass the following year after the Edinburgh Agreement granted Denmark an opt-out of the third stage of the Economic and Monetary Union of the European Union (EMU).

In 2000, Denmark again rejected the common currency in a euro referendum. The current currency of the Scandinavian country is the Danish krone. As part of stage two of the EMU, the exchange rate of the krone is allowed to fluctuate within a ±2.25% range to the euro.

In order to maintain this peg Danmarks Nationalbank, the central bank, adjusts interest rates and performs foreign exchange operations by buying and selling currency. To do this, Danmarks Nationalbank has had to raise rates twice, even as other central banks, including the European Central Bank (ECB), were lowering rates to deal with the current economic crisis.

As a result, interest rates in Denmark are now 175 basis points higher than the ECB’s rates. As recently as May, the difference was only 25 basis points.

Rasmussen heads the Venstre party which leads a minority coalition government. The main opposition party, the Social Democrats, also support adopting the euro as the nation’s currency.

While there has long been support among the politicians, the euro has failed when it has been put before the voters. However, recent opinion polls have shown a growing support for the euro among Danes. The most recent of these have seen those in favor just topping the 50% level needed to pass a referendum.

Rasmussen has said he wants a referendum put before voters before 2011. His government had originally planned to hold a referendum this past September to abolish the EMU opt-outs, but that was scrapped when Ireland voted down the Treaty of Lisbon.

On October 30, while in Stockholm, Sweden, Rasmussen said: “The euro ensures political and economical stability in Europe and the current financial turmoil makes it evident that Denmark has to join the Euro.”

Analysts consulted by Berlingske Tidende have said that an endorsement from the Socialist People’s Party (SF) could prove to be the tide-turner.

“If there was a vote, then I would vote Yes. But I am of the opinion that it is stupid to hold a vote unless we first have a real debate. We haven’t had a debate in eight years and all arguments need to be tested,” said Margrete Auken of SF.

As the investigations by CBI Emaar continue, it is emerging that the real estate giant may have been falsely implicated in a land scam in Hyderabad popularly referred to as Emaar Scam by the media. APIIC or Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation in Hyderabad was given the task of creating a luxury residential township by the Andhra Pradesh government. APIIC or Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation is an organization which has the task of improving the industrial infrastructure in the state of Andhra Pradesh and had earlier constructed and maintains a host of industrial space and infrastructure all over the state of Andhra Pradesh, including the state capital Hyderabad. APIIC needed a third party to assist it in constructing the luxury township and bids were invited by Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation to this effect. Emaar MGF, a joint venture between Emaar Properties and MGF India won the bid and started the work on the project. However, soon there were allegations of land undervaluation and the alleged scam got the name of Emaar Scam just because the name of the reputed real estate giant was sufficient to attract mass attention. A joint CBI Emaar investigation over a period of time however found the real estate giant innocent in the alleged Emaar Scam but the name of the scam remained attached to the real estate firm s name in the mainstream media.

Since the days of Hyderabad, Emaar MGF has proved that Emaar is one of the most transparent organization in the world and believes in fair play. The commitment to bring the accused parties to justice indicates that Emaar has a long term plan to stay in India and is in no mood to make a quick buck and exit the market. Emaar Case has done nothing to shake the confidence of the real estate firm and it is committed to its projects spanning the length and the breadth of the country. It is evident in the number of projects Emaar MGF is presently constructing all over India although the overall industry is still suffering from the impact of US sub prime crisis. It is perhaps the joint venture of Emaar MGF which is keeping the Indian real estate industry afloat and seems to justify the government s decision to allow FDI in real estate.

It was in the year 2005 when Emaar entered India as hitherto the government did not allow foreign players to invest in real estate market in India. In a short span of time, Emaar has gained the respect and trust of the market and seems to be replicating its success story of Dubai in the Indian cities. Dubai, the head quarter of Emaar Properties, is a testimony to the expertise of Emaar as a construction company with Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Mall vouching for the real estate company. Though Emaar MGF has not undertaken such massive projects in the Indian market as yet, the ongoing projects are massive and huge in the Indian context. A country where infrastructure development still remains a big worry, all projects assigned to Emaar MGF have been completed within the timelines. With the memories of Emaar Scam being left behind and the CBI Emaar reportedly clearing the real estate from the allegations, there seems to no stopping this real estate giant from becoming India s leading real estate company.

Two people are dead at a Michigan, United States community college in what police are calling a murder-suicide on Friday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The victims, a 28-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman, were found in the Fine Arts Building of Henry Ford Community College in Dearborn, Michigan.

The Free Press reports that the suspected gunman entered classroom F-111 with a shotgun, killed the female and then shot himself. The two were in the same theater class, but police have yet to determine if there was a further relationship between the two.

“The original call was some kind of assault … shots in the building,” Police Deputy Chief Gregg Brighton told the Free Press.

“Officers responded to the scene, were able to get a perimeter on the building,” Brighton said. “An entry team entered the south hallway … as they entered they heard another gunshot. Officers were able to enter one of the rooms, and discovered two deceased parties. We cleared the building.”

Dearborn police and campus police secured the crime scene after evacuating some students from the building. The Free Press also reports that four Michigan State Police detectives are assisting local authorities in the investigation.

The school was locked down for several hours shortly after a 911 call was received. The lockdown has now been lifted.

The school will be closed for the rest of the day and the school will be offering counseling services.

Militants in north-west Pakistan blew up a fuel tanker carrying supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan on Monday. More than ten armed men shot at the tanker and fired a rocket at the vehicle outside Peshawar city, and the driver and a passenger were injured in the attack, although no loss of life is reported.

Head of the north-western city’s administration, Sahibzada Anees, said “About ten armed people fired at a tanker carrying petrol for NATO forces and later lobbed a rocket at the vehicle, which set alight some 78,000 litres (17,000 gallons) of fuel”.

According to witnesses, the tanker was quickly in flames. The residents of the areas were successfully rescued by police and fire fighters and the blaze was brought under control. Police have launched a search operation in nearby areas, although with no success.

Nobody has yet claimed responsibility for the attack. Oil tankers and trucks bringing goods from port city of Karachi for allied forces battling the Taliban in Afghanistan have been regularly attacked. About 80% of supplies destined for the more than 113 thousand NATO troops in Afghanistan have to pass through Pakistan. The coalition forces bring 70% of supplies through Pakistan every month, from a total of two thousand truckloads.

That blender sitting on your kitchen counter is more than just a fancy umbrella drink machine. With a little bit of creativity and some helpful recipes, you can use your blender to make creamy, smooth, gourmet style soups.

Making your own fresh soup is an excellent way to get your daily servings of vegetables. Blending your own soups is a healthy alternative. Canned soups are loaded with preservatives and sodium. When you blend your own, you control what goes in.

So below are some suggestions for blending your own soup. You’ll need to make sure that your blender is powerful enough to liquefy the contents. It may be necessary to chop or dice the ingredients so that you’re sure to have a good consistency.

Follow these recipes to make some great blender soups.


1 whole zucchini (or substitute with yellow summer squash)

1-2 whole plum tomatoes or 2-3 small Campari tomatoes

1-2 stalks of celery

1 sliver of red onion (optional, to taste)

1/2 – 1 clove garlic, crushed (optional)

Spices: A dash of dill, some cilantro (fresh or dried). Add a dash of sea salt and pepper to taste.

1 and 1/2 to 2 cups hot water.

Blend the ingredients together until your soup is smooth and thick. Then heat in a soup pan on medium heat.

1/2 – 1 clove garlic, crushed (optional)

Season to taste trying different combinations of oregano, basil, dill or Italian seasoning

Salt and pepper to taste

Combine the first six ingredients in a soup pot and simmer on the stove for about ten minutes. Add half a can of beans, the salt and cumin. Cook for an additional five minutes. Puree the soup in your blender. If you have an immersion blender you can do that right on the stove. Add the remaining beans. Combine the cornstarch with 1 1/2 tablespoons of water. Add the lemon and cornstarch and cook until thickened.

If you prefer to make a chilled soup, you can make gazpacho with fresh ingredients. Put fresh chopped tomatoes, a little bit of red-wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar, a few fresh garlic cloves, a dash of cayenne pepper, a dash of extra-virgin olive oil and cilantro into your blender. Customize your soup by adding your choice of fresh summer vegetables such as cucumbers, onions or peppers.

Chilled Cucumber and Dill Soup

1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and chopped (reserve 4 thin slices for garnish)

12 ounces soft or silken organic tofu, drained and cubed

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 teaspoon dried dill, or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill (save a bit for garnish)

1/2 medium sweet onion, chopped

1 to 2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 teaspoon vegan brown sugar

Place all of the ingredients in your blender and blend on medium until the soup is thick and creamy. Place in the refrigerator and chill for at least four hours. Chill four bowls. When ready to serve, put the soup into the bowls. Garnish with the remaining cucumber slices and fresh dill.

These are just a few options for soups made from your blender. Try these out. And when you get creative make up your own recipe and blend it all together.

The results can be amazing.

A gunman attacked a downtown Binghamton, New York-based immigration services center today, killing up to 13 people before killing himself.

New York Governor David Paterson at a news conference indicated that 12 or 13 people were killed at the American Civic Association. It is unclear whether or not the attacker was included in the number of the deceased.

An anonymous law enforcement official indicated the presumed gunman’s body was found in an office of the immigration services center building. The attacker blocked the rear building door with his car and entered through the front door. He then opened fire.

The gunman held over 40 hostages, some in a closet and the rest in the boiler room. Police and EMS started arriving at 10:30 A.M (EDT). SWAT sharpshooters and the Endicott police bomb squad were called to the scene. Nearby residencies and businesses were evacuated, while a nursing home and the high school were placed on lockdown. FBI hostage negotiators and evidence response team were being sent to the scene. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents were headed to Binghamton. About noon, the shooter released ten hostages, then another ten out the back 40 minutes later. At 2:40 p.m., the local police said the standoff had ended and a SWAT team was checking the building for anyone remaining.

In Johnson City, Wilson Medical Center staff are treating three to five gunshot wounds, while Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton is treating a single such case. Both hospitals called in additional staff and cancelled all elective surgeries.

A national law enforcement source identified the shooter as 42-year-old Jiverly Voong. The police asked Broome Community College Assistant Professor Tuong Hung Nguyen, a fluent Vietnamese speaker, to translate for discussions between police and Voong.

Just two weeks after China sent global markets into a tumble, growing worries about sub-prime mortgage lenders in the United States are sending jitters through stock exchanges around the globe. The three major US stock market indices each fell two percent from Monday’s closing price, marking the second-biggest loss of 2007. London’s FTSE 100, Paris’ CAC 40 and Frankfurt’s DAX 30 indices each closed down more than 1 percent.

As the Mortgage Bankers Association reported that late payments on mortgages and home foreclosures in the US homes rose in the fourth quarter to their highest level in years, investors are concerned that not only US banks but also multi-national banks around the globe could have exposure.

More than two dozen sub-prime lenders have closed or sold operations as defaults on those mortgages have risen. “The delinquencies and defaults have started to soar,” said Nicolas Retsinas, director of Housing Studies at Harvard University. “A lot of these lenders started to make loans and lost track of some of the fundamentals.”

New Century Financial Corporation, the second largest sub-prime lender in the US, has recently revealed that its creditors were no longer providing funds and, further, it has become subject of an SEC investigation. The New York Stock Exchange has said it will delist New Century. Accredited Home Loan Lending, another major sub-prime mortgage specialist, said it was seeking fresh capital and waivers on its lending covenants.

Sub-prime lenders provide mortgages to people who do not qualify for loans from mainstream lenders, typically due to their credit histories. The lenders then bundle these mortgages as collateral for loans that they obtain from other financing firms, such as GMAC. Such firms can then repackage these loans and sell them as mortgage-backed securities. These securities may end up in the hands of major multi-national banks such as Citibank, HSBC, and Commerzbank. Each level of lending assumes a level of financial risk, but trouble can arise when the risk tolerances are exceeded. If too many homeowners default on their mortgages, the sub-prime lender can end up defaulting. If too many of these lenders default, as it is feared may be happening now, the defaults can cascade upward. While no one is predicting major bank failures at this point, it is feared that their profits could be hurt.
