California earthquake swarm 'pretty bad,' buildings damaged
Some buildings were damaged by the earlier quakes, including 20 mobile homes that shifted from their foundations, according to the Imperial County Office of Emergency Services. The office was working with the American Red Cross to set up a shelter for displaced families at the Imperial Valley College gymnasium. The quakes cause scattered power outages, including at Pioneers Memorial Hospital, which lost power for about three hours. Assistant hospital administrator Art Mejia said generators immediately kicked in, but officials decided to evacuate patients as a precautionary measure in case the facility had suffered structural damage.

'Vengeance massacre' in Syria leaves 320 dead
Syrian soldiers loyal to President Bashar Assad stormed a town out-side Damascus over the week-end, killing more than 300 people in what the activists opposed to the regime called "the worst single atrocity of the 17-month conflict." The activists claimed Sunday to have found more than 200 bodies, mostly killed "execution-style," in houses and basements in Dariya, a rebel holdout, after government troops stormed it early Saturday. 

Indian PM to hold talks with Ayatollah Khamenei, Ahmadinejad
'Peace and security is, indeed, our primary concern given just how important the entire West Asia region, Persian Gulf region, in particular, is for India's security and for Indian economy, both in terms of oil imports and our exports. So, this is our own concern and we don't have to take anybody else's concern,' he said. India attaches great importance to ties with Iran and the PM will also seek to boost cooperation in key areas, including trade during his meetings with the Iranian leadership' 

Obama Email to Supporters: If I Lose, It's Your Fault
Obama sent out a campaign email essentially blaming his supporters if he loses. See, he’s supposedly being outspent. And because he’s supposedly being outspent, he’s losing. And he can’t spend more money unless his supporters fork it over. This is the campaign version of Obama’s entire economic argument: he can’t fix the economy unless he spends more money. And unless we give him more money, he can’t spend it. So if the economy fails, it’s our fault. 

Key Obama supporters now turning on him
Among the key constituencies for Obama, only 34 percent of women believe the nation is going in the right direction, along with only 42 percent of blacks and only 2 percent of Hispanics. Among young voters, only 33 percent of those 20 or younger think Obama is leading the nation in the right direction, and only 29 percent of those in their 30s agree. The results aligned closely with the job rating that voters give Obama. Only 18 percent think he is doing an excellent job and another 28 percent a good job. A dominant 45 percent of respondents put his performance at “poor” and another 9 percent say his performance was “only fair.”

Researchers Find Mysterious New AIDS-Like Disease
Researchers have identified a mysterious new disease that has left scores of people in Asia and some in the United States with AIDS-like symptoms even though they are not infected with HIV.

Scientists Successfully ‘Hack’ Brain To Obtain Private Data
It sounds like something out of the movie “Johnny Mnemonic,” but scientists have successfully been able to “hack” a brain with a device that’s easily available on the open market.

7 years after Katrina, NOLA braces for Isaac
On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall along the Mississippi-Louisiana border, forever changing the region and the way officials react to incoming storms. With Tropical Storm Isaac now projected to potentially hit the area on almost the exact same day of the month - probably as a hurricane - the lessons from the disaster that followed Katrina have not been lost. Local officials are taking an extremely cautious approach to weather threats.
