So the decision to bring Lisa Lampanelli to our province in the wake of a complaint to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal against comedian Guy Earle is truly funny.  No minority is left unscathed in Lampanelli’s onslaught. Then again, people should know that going in.  You have to actually try to have a point and a punchline,” she says, on the phone from her home in Connecticut.  If you have to explain that these are jokes, the jokes aren’t funny, so the audience is right to have the angry dykes come after you.  If there’s a politically incorrect way of phrasing something, Lampanelli is all over it. And somehow she gets away with it. In our half-hour interview, she ruthlessly attacks just about everyone (including me), yet you always sense a kind of wink to let you know she’s not serious, despite the outrageous words spewing out of h...

Image021Going to Beijing? We want to see your photos from the 2008 Olympic Games!  USOCJosh McAdamsJosh McAdams' Olympic Journal Track and field athlete Josh McAdams, originally of Broadview Heights, will compete in the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, China in the steeplechase competition.  McAdams will race in the 3,000-meter steeplechase preliminaries Friday at 9:20 p.m. EDT. The final is Monday at 9:10 a.m.  Way tired. So tired in fact that I was too groggy to take my glasses off after using the restroom in the middle of the night. That's the second time since I've been here. It's tough to find your glasses when you don't have them on. I did manage to get 8 hours of sleep last night, and it felt blissful. The search for my glasses would have to wait till after practice.  Ran for about 20 minutes at the USA High Performance Center. Did some hurdle drills, and then cooled down 10 minutes. At his point, it's all about being fresh for race day. Underdoing is better than overdoing. I did some abdo...

r27783_690​26JsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?  BEIJING (AFP) — Michael Phelps's quest for Olympic immortality begins Saturday, when he opens the Beijing Games swimming competition with a race he says may be one of his toughest -- the 400m individual medley.The 23-year-old star has owned the 400 IM world record since 2002, and lowered it for the seventh time at the US Olympic trials in June.However, teammate Ryan Lochte has closed the gap on Phelps in the event since finishing more than three seconds behind his celebrated teammate at last year's world championships in Melbourne.At the US trials, Lochte notched the second-fastest time in history as he finished less than one second adrift."They're all going to be hard," Phelps said of his ambitious programme that will call on him to swim at least 17 times as he pursues Mark Spitz's record of seven gold medals set at the 1972 Munich Olympics."I think one of the hardest will be one of the first, the 400 IM. It's the one I'm mo...

Brooke-Wil​berger150Thank you.  12 noon.  2008 "20/20" investigates the disappearances of two female coeds – both from close, loving families with everything to live for – who mysteriously vanished without a trace. Brooke Wilberger, 19, disappeared in broad daylight from a parking lot in the university town of Corvalis, Oregon in May of 2004. Maura Murray was a nursing student at the University of Massachusetts who, in February 2004, for an unknown reason, drove to New Hampshire, where her car was found crashed on the side of a desolate road. She has not been seen since. FBI statistics say there are more than 21,500 active missing persons cases involving people ages 18 to 29. As Elizabeth Vargas reports, how authorities respond to these cases can vary dramatically depending on the circumstances. Sometimes the police wait to react, since the missing person is legally an adult, as they did in the Murray case. But in Wilberger's case, the police did act immediately. What are the clues they're looking for? In...

03-08-06-d​owWebsite of the Telegraph Media Group with breaking news, sport, business, latest UK and world news.  Mr Walesa, who won the Nobel Peace prize for his defiance of Communist regime, told the Daily Telegraph:  "I have always supported the shield in Poland. I'm glad that the thing is finalised now. There are so many weapons on the planet that the Earth could be destroyed 10 times over."It's obvious we don't need a new arms race but in the end, I'm in favour of the shield. The pros for Polish security outweigh the cons. It's  good that the Americans will be here."Poland's negotiations with Washington have been guided by fears of a newly resurgent Russia, an anxiety that intensified with the military offensive in Georgia. In the last week Polish leaders argued that the fighting in Georgia justified their demands for additional security guarantees from Washington in exchange for allowing the anti-missile base on its soil.The Poland of today has undergone a major transformation since Lech Wale...

Speed%2520​Levitch9Marina Erakovic is looking relaxed right now.  And, really, what's not to be relaxed about. She's stormed up the tennis world rankings over the course of the last eight months. Eight dramatic, occasionally traumatic, and often ecstatic months they have been.  Now here she is at the Olympic Games in Beijing, taking her place among the creme of her sport's tennis crop as it looks to harvest a gold medalist by finals day on August 17. Looking an excellent prospect, too, to make it at least into the second round with a draw that has fallen into her lap.  So as the officious, yet polite, Chinese security detail wave their arms around, indicating that the reporter, tennis starlet, her coach and driver should step out of the vehicle, there's not even a flicker of annoyance.  The Kiwi has just finished her pre-Games media conference and she's been good enough to give the reporter some extra time en route to her training session.  It was just a great feeling," she says of the moment s...

b95db247-3​d16-4263-8​ee8-d68e14​8aaa89_mnI'm happy with the time - it was all about making the finals. Anything goes tomorrow (Saturday).  Schoeman has had some inadvertent help from TV.  I've been fortunate to be in lane three both times and I see that camera. I just try and chase the camera, it's like the rabbit for me, instead of looking at swimmers around me I'm just basically going for the camera.  Look back at world champs last year.  Louw, 20, in his first Olympics, said: "The 22s is a hard barrier to break, but now the sky's the limit - next time I might go 21.7 and then move on in my swimming career from there.  CLOSE ENCOUNTER:                Aida Mohamed of Hungary competes against Hanna Thompson of the US during their team semi-final  match at the Beijing Olympics.  Fast fact: Member of the 2004 Olympic Games swimming team for South Africa.  2008 24.com.

Most inflation this year has come from food and fuel, as retailers resisted passing along to strapped consumers the higher prices manufacturers charged them, but coming increases from companies such as Johnson & Johnson and Hasbro Inc. may leave them with no choice.
