cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

3. poor staff vetting at children's homes

Almost a third of children's residential centres inspected by the Health Information and Quality Authority (Hiqa) last year had not vetted all their staff properly, according to a new report.

The report, published today by Hiqa, said residential centres must obtain three references for all staff prior to them commencing work in the childcare sector and all employees must also get Garda clearance.

During inspections of 38 centres during 2008, Hiqa found 12 of them did not have three references on file for all employees and three centres did not have Garda clearance for a number of employees before they started work.

5. campaign to combat sexism, improve men's health care launched in Brazil

A campaign aimed to combat sexism and improve men's health care was launched on Tuesday in Brazil's northeastern city of Recife.

The campaign, entitled "Machismo and Health don't Match", encourages men to seek health care when symptoms appear in a bid to facilitate early diagnosis of diseases, said campaign coordinator Mariana Azevedo.

"Some men do not seek the service when disease appears. They allow the disease to become more severe and do not go to the doctor because they don't want to admit they feel pain or weakness", she said, adding that health services need to treat men differently.

The campaign, which will last until Wednesday, has drawn some 6,000 participants, including students, health professionals and researchers.


6. pedophile beheaded in Saudi Arabia

A man in Saudi Arabia is to be beheaded and crucified after he raped five children and left one of them, a three-year-old boy, to die in the desert.

An appeal court in the capital Riyadh approved the death sentence handed down in June by judges in the northwestern oasis city of Hail where the convicted 22-year-old man carried out his crimes.

The rapist - who was not named - was arrested several weeks ago as he tried to seize another boy after offering him a ride home from school. The seven-year-old - who escaped unharmed - helped identify the culprit.

The man’s victims were aged between three and seven. He was said to have lured them into his car as they left school at midday and then drove them to remote desert locations to rape them.
