by Ron Rowe
Man bites dog ? Yes, Paul Russell of Syracuse, New York admitted he was drunk when he grabbed a police dog and bit him on the right side of his neck. Paul is now in jail, the dog suffered a swelling, but he’s back on duty.
Good news for Whales. The Japanese whaling fleet is headed back to port this week, having failed to meet its quota be- cause of Greenpeace activists. The six Japanese boats killed 551 Whales, short of their goal of 950. The crew claimed they were distracted by Greenpeace members throwing stink bombs onto the decks. Japan hunts whales every year under a legal loophole in the internation- al whaling ban that allows limited kills for research purposes. The whale meat ends up in Japanese restaurants.

VIEW EXCLUSIVE: Iran Economy
An International - Ojai VIEW
by Sepp-Michael Zehender, Stuttgart, Germany
Since 2005, Iran had been strongly focused on development of their atomic energy resources. Since then monthly and weekly news reports were published in the international news media about the efforts of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to sort of control Iranian atomic energy developments.
US President George Bush then imposed an embargo on Iran in March 2007. President Sarkozy of France and Chancellor Merkel of Germany followed up in September 2007.
Now, a year later in 2008, this embargo is hurting the Iranian economy badly and the private industry hardly has a chance to fight the resulting consequences. For instance, in the shoe industry, they cannot fight the cheap prices of the enforced Chinese imports and many of them already have gone bankrupt.
