AL ROJO VIVO...

Kelpie Wilson | Chimpanzees and Culture Change http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/082406J.shtml "It all started back about ten years ago when I was reading reports of our genetic closeness to the chimpanzees and learning that we share 98-99% of the same genetic material. Jared Diamond and others say we are so close to the chimps that taxonomically we should be put in the same genus." writes Kelpie Wilson. "Humans are actually the third chimpanzee."

Coming Recession Will Be "Deep and Nasty" http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/082406K.shtml The United States is headed for a recession that will be "much nastier, deeper and more protracted" than the 2001 recession, says

Nouriel Roubini, president of Roubini Global Economics.
Marine Reservists Facing Involuntary Combat Duty http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/082406L.shtml The Marine Corps is planning to call up as many as 2,500 Marine reservists for combat duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, dipping into a rarely used pool of troops to fill growing personnel gaps in units scheduled to deploy in coming months, officials said yesterday.

Michael Hirsh | Dangerous Days
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/082406M.shtml Michael Hirsh writes, "This is as dangerous an August as I can recall, at least since Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait 16 years ago. It is the sort of moment when peace and history could be hanging in the balance for a generation to come - the kind of tipping point when American presidents can no longer leave the negotiating to underlings. They must take the world stage themselves to find a new way out, simply because no one else has the globo-oomph to do so. George W. Bush is going to Kennebunkport, where he'll test his golf skills with Poppy."

Rasha Salti | Life Under the Bombs
http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/082406N.shtml Rasha Salti writes, " I am haunted by the nameless and faceless caught under rubble. In the undergrounds of destroyed buildings or simply in the midst of its ravages. Awaiting to be given a proper burial."

Paul Krugman | King George's Crumbling Monarchy http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/082406O.shtml "Somehow political power has fallen into the hands of people who want to dismantle everything that works, and conduct business as if they were running a medieval duchy - or a third world tin-pot dictatorship. (Yes, contractors in Iraq really did receive duffel bags filled with $100 bills.) And it turns out that they can do immense damage in a very short time," writes Paul Krugman. "Remember that FEMA was regarded as one of the best agencies in the federal government at the end of the Clinton years."

Labor Department Undercounts Poor, Uninsured, and the Non-Employed http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/082406P.shtml An analysis of the nation's most important labor-market survey concludes that official estimates of the number of Americans living in poverty and without health insurance may significantly underestimate the true number of poor and uninsured. According to the study, conducted by the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), the measurement problems with the Current Population Survey (CPS) have been growing, making it difficult to assess changes in economic well being over time.

William Rivers Pitt | Supporting the Troops http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/082406R.shtml William Rivers Pitt says: "The question of how, exactly, one can and should support the troops has been a live political hand grenade over the last several years....

Their tasks are not merely housework and garden-tending. They are prostitutes, miners, construction workers, pesticide sprayers, haulers and street vendors, and they are not necessarily even paid for their labor.

African-American Women Step Up in Business World http://www.truthout.org/issues_06/082406WA.shtml Thousands of African-American women are starting their own businesses, in a trend that's tipping the balance of economic power in the black community.
