Students Build Car That Gets 2,000 Miles per Gallon

Ohio: After placing second in the recent Society of Automotive Engineers "supermileage" competition engineering students from Cedarville University have constructed a car that is capable of 2,000 miles per gallon.

The fibreglass vehicle powered by a 2.5 horsepower Briggs and Stratton lawnmower engine that has undergone significant modification is unlikely to be gain popularity due to its low top speed and cramped, uncomfortable interior.

Many engineering students enter the "supermileage" competitions with the aim of portraying themselves to potential employers as skilled engineers and good team players.

The crisis of modern democracy is a profound one. Free elections, a free press and an independent judiciary mean little when the free market has reduced them to commodities available on sale to the highest bidder.

The era of manufacturing consent has given way to the era of manufacturing news. Soon media newsrooms will drop the pretense, and start hiring theater directors instead of journalists.

The structure of capitalism is flawed. The motor that powers it cannot but vastly increase the disparity between the poor and the rich globally and within countries as well. Parecon is a brave argument for replacing that flawed machine and offers a much needed -- more equitable, democratic, participatory -- alternative economic vision.

[The choice between John Kerry and George Bush] is not a real choice. It's an apparent choice. Like choosing a brand of detergent. Whether you buy Ivory Snow or Tide, they're both owned by Proctor & Gamble.

Dr. Hermann Oberth who pioneered rocket design for the German Reich during World War II and later advanced rocket technology for the American manned space launches, cryptically stated: "We cannot take the credit for our record advancement in certain scientific fields alone; we have been helped."

When asked by whom, he replied: "The people of other worlds."
