SIRTE, Libya — It took 10 months of planning, persuasion and compromise for U.N. and African diplomats to launch a new round of peace talks for Sudan's Darfur region.
But it took less than 48 hours for Darfur's political realities to crush any hopes of a speedy resolution to the four-year war in western Sudan, which has claimed more than 200,000 lives.

For the many years that Logan has housed students, there have been exhibitions of school spirit. Rallies, school colors, logos and spirit week. These articles of spirit have been a long held tradition of James Logan High, but the question is: Is it truly necessary for students to be forced into participating?

NASA image of Comet HolmesBy Patrick May
San Jose Mercury News (MCT)
SAN JOSE — Astronomers and backyard stargazers are going gaga this week over the flying fuzz ball known as Comet Holmes.
First discovered in 1892, the comet has played hide-and-seek with star-watchers ever since, often too faint to see with a telescope as it orbited the sun every seven years.
Not this time. Thanks to a so-called "outburst" of gas and dust as the comet skirted the sun earlier this week, the normally faint comet has intensified in brightness 1 million-fold since Wednesday night. This weekend, even in well-lit cities and even to the naked eye, Holmes should be strutting its orange-yellowish asymmetrical stuff.

The Boston Red Sox knocked off the Colorado Rockies on Sunday night 4‑3, to win the Worlds Series for the second time in the last four years.
"Jonathan Papelbon picked up his 3rd save of the Series and recorded the final five outs in succession, including striking out Seth Smith for the final out."
Jonathan Papelbon picked up his 3rd save of the Series and recorded the final five outs in succession, including striking out Seth Smith for the final out. Jon Lester pitched 5 and 2/3 innings of shutout baseball and Mike Lowell and Bobby Kielty hit solo homers to lead the Red Sox.
Home runs by Brad Hawpe and Garrett Atkins turned the contest into a nail bitter before Papelbon retired the last five hitters. Aaron Cook picked up the loss and Brian Fuentes allowed Bobby Kielty’s eight inning home run which at that moment made the score 4‑1, but would turn out to be the potential game‑winner.
