The game we've been waiting on

ATLANTA -- No more waiting. It's here.

Alabama vs. Florida, for the SEC championship and the right to play in the BCS National Championship Game.



Thank goodness for the Georgia Dome, too. The weather in Atlanta is nasty. It's bitterly cold, and the wind is howling.



But inside, it's heating up as a few of the fans are starting to file in. The first… Continue

Can you have a real Christmas with a fake tree?

It's December. Time to get real for Jodi Yorke.

Late last week, Yorke, her husband, Brendan, and their 2-year-old son, Owen, went to the Christmas tree lot at Broadway and Montrose to pick out a tree -- a real tree.



Although Brendan grew up grabbing presents under an artificial tree -- Jodi's family went the real route.



"There's… Continue

Alabama, Florida braced for clash of the titans

ATLANTA — After another season of crunching numbers and grinding teeth over the gilded lean-to that is the Bowl Championship Series, this half of the equation, at least, is child's play.



Once again, Florida, ranked No. 1 in the BCS standings and the defending national champion, plays No. 2 Alabama today at the Georgia Dome for the Southeastern Conference championship. The winner will play in the BCS title game Jan. 7 against, in arguable order of probability, Texas, Cincinnati or… Continue

Microsoft, Google Take Maps in New Direction

The battle between Microsoft Corp. and Google Inc. has shifted into new territory: a race to see who can make online maps that make people feel like they're really there.



After lagging behind Google Maps, Microsoft this week unveiled an overhaul of its Bing Maps Web site that supplements the traditional bird's eye view of cities and other locations with rich photographs on the ground. In addition to the street-level images pioneered by Google Maps that let people "move" along the… Continue

Building Peace Without Obama's Interference

It is difficult to turn on a TV or radio or pick up a newspaper these days, without finding some pundit or other deploring the dismal prospects for Israeli-Palestinian peace or the dreadful living conditions of the Palestinians. Even supposedly neutral news reporters regularly repeat this sad tale. "Very little is changing for the Palestinian people on the ground," I heard BBC World Service Cairo correspondent Christian Fraser tell listeners three times in a 45 minute period the other… Continue

American consumers spent less money on Christmas trees in 2008 than they did the previous year, according to a recent consumer tracking poll released by the National Christmas Tree Association.



Consumers here purchased 28.2 million farm-grown Christmas trees and 11.7 million artificial trees last year, according to the study. Both are declines from 2007, with the artificial tree category showing a decline of 35 percent, while real trees were down about 10 percent.

US President Expected to Announce Afghanistan Policy Tuesday

U.S. news organizations say President Barack Obama plans to announce his new strategy for Afghanistan on Tuesday evening, during a prime-time television address.



The reports say the president is most likely to back a plan to send between 30,000 and 35,000 additional U.S. troops to the country.



The top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan earlier this year told the president that up to 40,000 troops are needed to combat Taliban and al-Qaida militants in the region.…

The 'Twilight' Zone

We know. You hate "Twilight." You don't want to hear anything more about "Twilight." That's why this is not another story about the "Twilight" or "New Moon" mania, nor will it rhapsodize on the vampire craze, nor does it contain an interview with Robert Pattinson.



This is a story about shame.



All across the country, there were women who managed to avoid Stephenie Meyer's series about a star-crossed human/vampire teen couple. (Vampire Edward lusts for mortal Bella, but also… Continue

Twilight: Pattinson in New Moon breaks midnight record

The new Twilight vampire movie took a record $26.3m (?15.9m) in midnight showings at North American box offices, studio Summit Entertainment has said.

Experts have predicted that New Moon will have one of the biggest opening weekends for a non-summer film.



The first movie in the series, starring Robert Pattinson, made… Continue

Hacked E-mails Fuel Climate Change Skeptics

Hundreds of private e-mails and documents hacked from a computer server at a British university are causing a stir among global warming skeptics, who say they show that climate scientists conspired to overstate the case for a human influence on climate change.



The e-mails, attributed to prominent American and British climate researchers, include discussions of scientific data and whether it should be released, exchanges about how best to combat the arguments of skeptics, and casual… Continue

Palin in book: McCain aides kept me 'bottled up'

The rumors are true, according to Sarah Palin: The McCain-Palin campaign was not a happy family. In Palin's new memoir, "Going Rogue," she confirms reports of tension between her aides and those of the 2008 Republican presidential candidate, Sen. John McCain. The vice presidential candidate confirms that she had wanted to speak on election night, but was denied the chance and says she was kept "bottled up" from reporters during the campaign.
