Major disasters drain insurers.
Total economic losses rose to $130bn from $50bn the previous year
Several major natural catastrophes in 2010 led to the sixth-highest number of insurers' losses since 1980, Munich Re said yesterday. The reinsurer said in its annual review that insured losses rose to $37 billion last year from $22bn in 2009. It said total economic losses, including losses not covered by insurance, rose to $130bn from $50bn the previous year. A total of 950 natural catastrophes were recorded last year, including five "great natural catastrophes": earthquakes in Haiti, Chile and central China, a heat wave in Russia and floods in Pakistan.

The Archbishop of Milwaukee, Jerome Listecki, had to announce the insolvency of his diocese.
USA - Diocese insolvent because of payments to abuse victims
The Archdiocese Milwaukee is insolvent. The compensation payments to victims of abuse through priests exceed the budget. As a result of sexual abuse through priests a further US diocese of the Catholic Church had to announce insolvency because of high compensation payments. The archdiocese in Milwaukee in the US federal state Wisconsin is with almost 700,000 of their believers no longer solvent, the archdiocese announced. The compensation payments to the victims of sexual abuse exceeded the budget of the diocese. In the past 20 years the diocese has already paid more than 29 million dollars (about 22 million Euros) compensation to abuse victims said Listecki. Since 2002 already seven other US dioceses had to announce insolvency because of abuse compensations. The scandals had then plunged the Catholics in the USA into a deep crisis.

A great part of worldwide coking coal extraction stands still
Floods in Australia with global results
When there is nothing going anymore in the coal mines in Queensland then also the steel producers suffer worldwide. The century flood in the Australian member state Queensland has paralysed most of the coking coal mines. Because also the harvests are lost, the country could fall into recession. For the whole year a dwindling of the BIP is reckoned with. The flood catastrophe in the North East of Australia is not only a disaster for the people living there, but also for the economy in the affected areas. Because the production in the member state Queensland is also worldwide of great importance. Above all the great international steel producers have to prepare themselves for supply bottlenecks and higher prices in the approaching future. Different producers of coking coal, among them giants like BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto and Anglo American, have declared "force majeur" in the meantime; therefore an emergency for which one is not oneself responsible, which allows them not to fulfil agreed supply quotas without having to give compensation. Queensland's Prime Minister Anna Bligh said on Wednesday that 75% of all coal mines are closed down at present. That has massive influence on international markets as well as the international steel production, said the politician.

Sexual abuse, disappointment, loss of trust: Above all the churches are themselves to be blamed for the waves of leaving the church.
Faith - A terrible year for both churches
Church flight: Several scandals drove the believers out of the houses of God this year. An avalanche of sexual abuse cases and three spectacular bishop resignations - for Catholics and Protestants in Germany 2010 is the year of crises. An "annus horribilis" (terribel year) above all for the Catholic Church. Religious sociologists speak of a virtually leaden atmosphere. Who searches for the origins of the trust crises, for the reasons of the cover-up mentality, comes across the factor that the old idea of the "societas perfecta" (perfect community) carried on having an effect. The church as an salvation institution felt with its power to be superior to all other powers, also the state powers. The wrong concern, the church is under no circumstances allowed to be stained, by misdeeds of clerics becoming known, has also led to this crises of credibility.

Severe accusations against the pastor of a parish in Hamburg.
Public prosecutor's office investigates - pastor to have had sex in church
Severe accusations against the pastor of a parish in Hamburg: The cleric is supposed to have had sex with a worship visitor. Also alcohol has been involved. The parish member reported the incident to the responsible provost. The pastor is supposed to have lost his position as a result; the public prosecutor's office investigates against the suspicion of sexual abuse.

The record of an abuse: He is allowed to remain a priest.
Abuse - The bad memories of priest Ulrich
Then, on a Wednesday evening, before the traditional weekly mess, the pastor from the neighbouring parish reads a message from the bishop. The public prosecutor's office is investigating against the priest because of the suspicion of sexual abuse. Daily new reports about the investigations are in the papers. The woman from the parish and her family break off their contact with the priest. Too deeply they feel lied to. The court does not believe him. Ten cases of serious abuse the judge will consider in the end as proven and sentence the priest to three years detention. The church with the white tent roof, which nestles in the middle of a small park of a central German small town, has a peaceful effect as always. Rome has imposed a panel decree with many orders over him. When he is free, he is no longer allowed to work with youth. Every journey he has to announce in advance and leave the room immediately when minors are in it. He is no longer allowed to have contact with his parish. Like the boy he has lost his old life for ever. But he was spared the highest punishment: He is allowed to remain priest.

The abuse scandal in the Catholic Church has triggered a wave of resignations.
Wave of withdrawals - abuse cases drive Catholics out of the church
In many dioceses more people quit the church 2010 than the year before. In Augsburg and Trier it is especially dramatic. Empty pews in a church in Bavaria: Clearly more Catholics have left the Catholic Church this year. The abuse scandal in the Catholic Church has obviously triggered a wave of withdrawals this year.

The price of rebuilding, coupled with economic losses, could be as much as Aus$5 billion.
Australia: The flooding shut about 40 coal mines
Australia's worst flooding in about 50 years was caused by tropical rains that fell for days, starting just before Christmas. About 1 200 homes in 40 communities were inundated and almost 11 000 more have water damage. Nearly 4 000 people were evacuated, and police have reported 10 flood-related deaths in Queensland since late November. The flooding shut about 40 coal mines in the state, pushing up global prices, and has hurt wheat, mango, sugarcane and other crops. State premier Anna Bligh has said the price of rebuilding homes, business and infrastructure, coupled with economic losses, could be as much as Aus$5 billion.

All celestial bodies are inhabited and their laws of nature are all different
The earth is a star, which is completely isolated from the other world bodies or the other celestial bodies, with laws of nature especially determined for earth. For all inhabitants of earth the laws of earth are valid – which however deviate from the laws of the other celestial bodies. So also every celestial body is totally different from each other.

Vatican told bishops to keep quiet. Abuse: letter is smoking gun.

South Africa: Priest accused of raping man
A senior Roman Catholic priest in Mthatha has been arrested for allegedly raping a 20-year-old man, the National Prosecution Authority said. The priest, 68, was arrested on Sunday and applied for bail in the Mthatha Magistrate's Court yesterday, said NPA regional spokesman Luxolo Tyali. "The magistrate reserved his ruling because he wants to apply his mind because [the priest] is a foreigner. He has to be sure that [the priest] won't leave the country if he is granted bail." The alleged rape took place at a home for street children in 2009.

President Jacob Zuma: When you don't vote for the ANC you are choosing that man who carries a fork ... who cooks people.
South Africa: God is on the ANC's side, Zuma tells crowd
President Jacob Zuma has upped the ante in the local government election campaign, telling supporters that they were "blessed" and warning that a vote for the opposition was a vote for the devil.
In a speech likely to infuriate Christians and opposition parties alike, Zuma told hundreds of supporters in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape that only an ANC membership card would guarantee an automatic pass to heaven.
He was addressing an impromptu rally in the town's city centre on Friday. "When you vote for the ANC, you are also choosing to go to heaven. When you don't vote for the ANC you should know that you are choosing that man who carries a fork ... who cooks people," Zuma said.
"When you are carrying an ANC membership card, you are blessed. When you get up there, there are different cards used but when you have an ANC card, you will be let through to go to heaven," he said to wild applause.
"When (Jesus) fetches us we will find (those in the beyond) wearing black, green and gold ... the holy ones belong to the ANC."

Man to have abused dozens of children
Cardinal admits appointing paedophile priest
A Netherland cardinal has admitted appointing a condemned paedophile as priest. The archdiocese Utrecht had been informed about the past of the minister when he was sent 1991 to the parish of Amersfoort, explained Cardinal Ad Simonis in a letter sent to the media on Thursday.
News reports say cardinal protected an abuser
The reports said that the retired archbishop of Utrecht, Adrianus Simonis, was told of an abusive priest whom he then allowed to remain in the church.
Dutch cardinal protected paedophile priest
While he was Archbishop of Utrecht, Cardinal Ad Simonis shielded a paedophile priest. The cardinal knew about the man’s paedophile past when he transferred him to a parish in Amersfoort, where the priest again sexually abused children. The cardinal kept the Amersfoort parish in the dark about the priest’s paedophile behaviour and convictions. Parents who complained about the priest to Cardinal Simonis were given no assistance. Hanneke Brunt, whose altar-boy son was abused: “Simonis told me – ‘This doesn’t go on in the Roman Catholic Church. We don’t do that.’”

And again a scandal or also just an apparent one shakes the Catholic Church. An educator of the monastery Ettal is to have molested a child in another monastery 25 years ago. The accusation: When Munich archdiocese last year heard about it it is supposed to have hesitated for three months to inform the monastery and the prosecution authorities - although the suspect worked with children.
This time the monastery feels to be morally right; has the archdiocese kept secret the indication of a paedophile educator?

An appeals court voted unanimously on Monday to reopen a criminal case into charges of the sexual abuse of minors by the Rev. Fernando Karadima, a Roman Catholic priest. A Vatican investigation found Father Karadima guilty last month of abusing minors and ordered him to retire to a "life of prayer and penitence." A judge in Santiago closed a criminal case late last year, ruling there was not enough evidence to charge him. The appeals court ruled that the case should be reopened because the "events, time and circumstances of the punishable acts had not been sufficiently investigated."

Obama strengthens the influence of America's biggest nemesis, Iran.
Interests of Saudi Arabia and Iran collide, with the U.S. in the Middle
The brutal crackdown in Bahrain poses the greatest Middle East democracy dilemma yet to the Obama administration, deepening a rift with its most important Arab ally, Saudi Arabia, while potentially strengthening the influence of its biggest nemesis, Iran.
Saudi officials, still angry that President Obama abandoned President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt in the face of demonstrations, ignored American requests not to send troops into Bahrain to help crush Shiite-led protests there.
But "there's not too much listening going on," a senior administration official said, noting that Secretary of Defence Robert M. Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton were forced to cancel visits to Saudi Arabia in recent days because the king was not willing to host them. (The official reason given was that he was ill.)

Atheist Christopher Hitchens could be 'saved' by evangelical Christian.
Christian treats atheist Hitchens
Christopher Hitchens, one of the world's best known atheists, is receiving a revolutionary new treatment for his cancer pioneered by an evangelical Christian scientist, he has revealed in an interview. The author of God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything said that he is a "guinea pig" for a new personalised medicine partly developed by Dr Francis Collins, a geneticist with very strong religious views. The two had often met in the past as adversaries in the debate about whether God exists. Dr Collins is a former director of the National Human Genome Research Project and is now the director of America's National Institutes of Health. He is the author of a bestselling book, The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief.
Since the publication of his [Hitchens'] book he has become a hero of so-called New Atheism movement. His pre-eminence has been enhanced by his steadfast refusal to change his views even after he was diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus last year.

The game of co-operation
Virtues preached by Jesus versus evolution
. . . he (Martin Nowak) is, in essence, making a scientific argument that the virtues preached by Jesus - compassion, concern, love for your neighbour - are encoded into the laws of biology. "The mathematical analysis shows that winning strategies in the game of co-operation have to be hopeful, generous and forgiving."
SuperCooperators: The Mathematics of Evolution, Altruism and Human Behaviour (Or Why We Need Each Other to Succeed)' by Martin Nowak and Roger Highfield is published by Canongate.
The next few years will see the central argument played out on the world stage: are we selfish creatures, whose innate self-interest will make things far worse for the species, or will the spirit of co-operation inspire us to face the challenges?

Jesuits pay $166m compensation to sexual abuse victims

Outrage in Belgium over interview of ex-bishop
“Last June, Pope Benedict was quick to criticize the raiding of church property by the Belgian police as ‘deplorable’ and his failure to condemn Bishop Vangheluwe was baffling and morally inexcusable. His failure to defrock the bishop - an obvious and minimal step - suggests that corrupt clerics continue to get preferential treatment from Rome.” Read more >>

Belgium asks Vatican to punish bishop for abuse
Belgium's acting Prime Minister Yves Leterme demanded that the Vatican immediately punish Bishop Roger Vangheluwe, who this week gave a television interview defending his sexual abuse of two nephews in the 1970s and 1980s.
Bishop Vangheluwe, 74, acknowledged in April 2010 that he sexually abused one of his nephews, in a revelation that rocked this small, predominantly Catholic country and saddled the Vatican with a public-relations nightmare.
In the interview broadcast Thursday on Belgian television, the bishop spoke about abusing two nephews, one of whom was six years old at the time. He said the rape was "not brutal sex," ...

Belgium: Further abuse accusations against Vangheluwe
New accusations against the former Bishop Roger Vangheluwe: Judiciary now investigates in two further suspicion cases. According to media reports on Wednesday the public prosecutor's office has already started the investigation. But interference with two acolytes in the 1960th comes probably under the statute of limitations. The paper "De Morgen" writes on Wednesday one of the two presumed victims has committed suicide later. Last week in a television interview Vangheluwe had conceded the abuse of a nephew, initially five years old, between 1973 and 1986 as well as the abuse of a second nephew. He expressly disputed that there had been further interference. The interview had triggered a wave of indignation; the Belgian bishops distanced themselves.

Syria is the only ally of Iran.
Syria is geopolitically considerably more important than Libya
Damascus is a wasp's nest - and whoever pricks into it could cause reactions of undreamt-of proportions. For Syria is geopolitically considerably more important than Libya. Syria is the only ally of Iran - and who would like to attack the regime of Baschar al-Assad, would have to take potentially painful counter reaction of Tehran into account. Besides Syria is frontline state to Israel.
For this also two weighty allies would be at its side: First the Shiite-Lebanese Hesbollah militia, which has a filled arsenal of missiles at its disposal and could cause a war with Israel at any time. And on the other hand the Hamas movement which controls the whole of the Gaza Strip and could also start a diversionary tactic against Israel when Syria so wanted. The political leadership of Hamas is guest of the government in Damascus.
Finally Syria is something like a self declared protecting power of Lebanon. Until a few years ago Damascus de facto kept the small neighbour state occupied. It still has a massive influence in the cedar state. Lebanon is domestically in an unstable position - chaos in Syria could promote chaos in Lebanon.

Earthquake detectors triggered an automatic shutdown of bullet trains in Japan.
Japanese bullet-train operator gets back on track after earthquake stalled service
The massive earthquake damaged 1 200 places on the JR East line, including stations, bridges, tunnels and overhead wire.
JR East resumed partial service on the bullet-train line as repairs were completed. It re-opened service from Tokyo to Fukishima, where the disaster triggered the world's worst nuclear accident since 1986, earlier this month and extended it to Sendai this week.
The final leg opening today will allow passengers to ride all 714km between Tokyo and Shin-Aomori, and access the Akita bullet-train line.
On March 11, a network of 97 earthquake detectors triggered an automatic shutdown of bullet trains about 15 seconds before the quake hit. Automatic brakes stopped the 27 trains operating with no fatalities.

Earth bends space-time like the ball a sheet
Once again Einstein was right: With its mass Earth bends space-time.
Two predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity were now confirmed with until now unattainable exactness. The US space authority in Washington spoke of a "historic result".
According to the general theory of relativity huge masses dent space-time - for instance like a basketball presses a hollow in a stretched sheet or like a sitting person into the jumping sheet of a trampoline. In addition earth pulls space-time with it while it turns around itself - like a turning spoon in a glass of syrup. "Imagine earth would be dipped in honey. While the planet is turning the honey around, it would whirl with it - and with space and time it is the same."

Space: Giant asteroid heading close to Earth

A giant asteroid weighing 55 million tonnes will just miss the Earth later this year, Nasa experts have predicted.
Asteroid YU55 will pass close to earth later this year.
The rock, which is quarter of a mile across, will pass between our planet and the moon in November and will be visible with small telescopes.
If it were to hit the earth, the asteroid, named YU55, would have an impact equivalent to 65,000 atom bombs and would leave a crater more than six miles wide and 2,000ft deep.
Passing by at a distance of just 201,000 miles, the asteroid will be the largest object ever to approach the earth so close.

Not until last year researchers have discovered a 200 to 400 metre celestial body . . . and that on a very unusual orbit. Earth obviously has a faithful but shy companion. It has not yet a proper name; astronomers call it NEA 2010 SO16. From the designation it follows that it was discovered last year. The Nasa satellite Wise discovered the asteroid in September 2010. The researchers first discovered that SO16 was always exactly as far away from the sun as earth. It flew on a similar circular orbit which is unusual for an asteroid. The researchers have analysed its orbit via computer.

Countless lonely planets rove through the Milky Way which are not or at best weakly bound to a home star. The discovery of this new category of planets is introduced by two international astronomer teams in the British specialist journal “Nature”. According to their calculations there are twice as much abandoned planets than stars.

It said Ahmadinejad violated the law by "not appointing a caretaker for the oil ministry and his maintaining (himself) as a caretaker," the website said.
The struggle over the control of the oil ministry comes with a month of Ahmadinejad's dismissal of Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi which was promptly vetoed by the all-powerful supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Sexual misconduct with minors by Father Michael Tierney
Bishop has removed a priest from his duties as pastor in Kansas City and from all other public ministry
Bishop Robert Finn has removed a priest from his duties as pastor of Christ the King parish in Kansas City and from all other public ministry, the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph June 2.
In a statement released last week, the Roman Catholic diocese said its review board, which is charged with assessing sexual abuse allegations against priests, had received "credible reports alleging sexual misconduct with minors by Father Michael Tierney in the early 1970s and 1980s."
The Kansas City lawyer who filed the lawsuit last year against Tierney was stunned to hear about Tierney's removal as pastor last Thursday.
"Unbelievable," Rebecca Randles said. "We applaud the church's move in dismissing him from the ministry but wonder why it's taken so long."

Catholic officials had moved McCabe to the United States after they became aware of complaints against him.
Ex-priest extradited to Ireland in sex-abuse case
A former Roman Catholic priest has been extradited from Northern California to his native Ireland to face charges that he sexually assaulted six boys from 1973 to 1981, authorities said Tuesday.
Patrick McCabe, 75, was handed over to officers from Ireland's national police service at San Francisco International Airport on Sunday night, said Michael Dyke, supervising deputy with the local U.S. Marshals Service.
A 2009 report sponsored by the Irish government on the Dublin Archdiocese's handling of sexual abuse said Catholic officials had moved McCabe to the United States after they became aware of complaints against him.
McCabe worked in churches throughout the Santa Rosa Diocese from 1983 until his forced resignation in 1987. He was living in an Alameda condominium when he surrendered in July to U.S. authorities, who then sought his extradition.
At least three former parishioners in Northern California have sued the Santa Rosa Diocese, claiming McCabe molested them.

Most galaxies, including our Milky Way, are thought to harbour black holes in their hearts.
Black hole shreds star
A monster black hole shredded a sun-like star, producing a strangely long-lasting flash of gamma rays that probably won't be seen again in a million years, astronomers reported yesterday.
First spied on March 28 by Nasa's Swift spacecraft, which is trolling the universe for gamma ray bursts, this particular flash has lasted more than two months and is still going on.
This kind of behaviour is different from what active black holes generally do, which is to suck in everything their vast gravity can pull in, even light. Most galaxies, including our Milky Way, are thought to harbour black holes in their hearts.
"We still don't understand how black holes and the universe grow."

Roman Catholic Church harbours priests who abuse children.
UK: Priest’s secret past revealed
A senior staff member sacked from a Roman Catholic children’s home in Market Weighton for sexually abusing boys went on to become a priest in the same diocese, it was revealed this week.
Father Joseph O’Brien, who was dismissed for abusing a number of boys at St William’s Community Home, went on to serve as a priest in Thirsk for 15 years.
The case casts another shadow over the Roman Catholic Church, which has been the subject of a series of accusations that it harboured priests who abused children.

Roman Catholic order: Prominent Jesuit priest permanently barred
USA: Jesuits remove popular priest over alleged abuse
A prominent Jesuit priest has been permanently barred from public ministry for allegedly improperly touching a minor in the 1980s.
The Maryland Province of the Jesuits said Tuesday that it removed the Rev. James Glenn Murray from church work after an investigator hired by the Roman Catholic order found evidence supporting the allegation. Murray is living in a monitored Jesuit residence.
The Jesuits sent notice of their action to dioceses and high schools where Murray has served since his 1979 ordination.

Catholic Church in Iceland
Case filed over sex crimes in Icelandic Catholic Church
The Reykjavik Metropolitan Police have completed their investigation of sexual offenses allegedly committed by a late teacher at Landakotsskoli, run by the Catholic Church in Iceland, and the case will now be taken to the courts.
... the investigation was also directed towards the school itself and the Catholic Church, where a priest has also been accused of sex violations, and therefore the case will likely not be dropped even though the teacher is dead.
Frettatiminn reported last weekend that two students at the school had been subject to mental and sexual violence by the teacher and priest.
A Dutch citizen who served as Catholic bishop in Iceland in 1996 was accused of sex offenses in the Dutch media in September last year. He left Iceland in 2007. His name did not come up in Frettatiminn's coverage.

USA: Catholic diocese suspends Mesa pastor in sexual misconduct investigation
One of the Valley's most prominent priests, the Rev. John D. "Jack" Spaulding, pastor of St. Timothy's Catholic Community in Mesa, was placed on administrative leave Friday after a Diocesan Review Board Thursday night determined there was a "credible" allegation of his involvement in sexual misconduct with a minor.
After being appointed St. Timothy's pastor in 2005, Spaulding stepped into a parish that had high loyalty to its previous pastor, the then-Monsignor Dale Fushek, the 20-year leader of the parish, who was put on administrative leave in late 2004 and resigned in June 2005 over accusations of sexual misconduct with minors.

Britain and Tanzania: BBC documentary exposed the horrific abuse.
England: Canadian leads abuse lawsuit against Catholic priests
After decades of quiet suffering and bottled rage, a Canadian man from Montreal is leading a group of 22 former residents of Catholic boarding schools in Britain and Tanzania, including four fellow Canadians from Quebec, B.C. and Alberta, in a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Rosminian Order priests alleged to have physically, sexually and emotionally abused the children in their charge during the 1950s.
Francis Lionnet, a 63-year-old communications consultant, is spearheading a compensation bid that has already prompted a BBC documentary on the case and led this week to a formal apology from Britain's top Rosminian official.
The BBC documentary - a Canadian version of which is to be aired by the CBC - "exposed the horrific abuse of young children by members of the Rosminian Order at a time when they required, and rightly expected, that their physical and moral welfare would be paramount to those entrusted with their care," said the statement from Uppal Taylor. "It is perhaps more so appalling that those that espouse moral fortitude under the guise of religious cloths should have paid such little regard to the young lives that they ruined by their actions and depravities."

USA: Missouri abbey faces suit; former St. Cloud bishop accused of abuse cover-up
A lawsuit filed Thursday against a Missouri abbey accuses Catholic Church officials - including former St. Cloud Bishop Jerome Hanus - of covering up sexual abuse by a former monk who spent several years at St. John's University three decades ago.
The plaintiff, who filed the lawsuit under the name John Doe 181, claims the Missouri abbey knew Parry had sexually abused other students but took no action. Among those the lawsuit accuses of knowing about the abuse are Hanus, who at that time was abbot of Conception Abbey, and Jerome Theisen, former abbot of St. John's.
Hanus was abbot of Conception Abbey before becoming bishop of St. Cloud. He served in St. Cloud from 1987-1994. He is now the archbishop of Dubuque, Iowa.

If there is water in such an unexpected place, it leaves possibility for the rest of the universe.
Icy Saturn moon may have ocean beneath its surface
Five years ago, scientists discovered that Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons, had geyser like plumes spewing water vapour and ice particles.
At least four distinct plumes of water ice spew out from the polar region of Saturn's moon Enceladus.
“We discovered that the plume is stratified in a composition of ice,” said Frank Postberg, an astrophysicist at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. “And the lower you go, the more salt-rich ice grains you find.”
Enceladus, Saturn’s sixth moon, is icy and just over 300 miles wide. The presence of water makes it one of a few other places in the solar system where life could exist.
But even if this isn’t the case, it makes life beyond Earth seem more plausible, Dr. Postberg said.
“If there is water in such an unexpected place,” he said, “it leaves possibility for the rest of the universe.”

On November 8 a 400-metre wide asteroid is expected to fly inside the orbit of the moon.
Giant asteroid to 'narrowly miss' Earth
A newly discovered asteroid the size of an office block will narrowly miss the Earth on Monday - coming 23 times closer than the moon.
The space rock will reach within 11,000 miles of the surface and give off a light bright enough to be seen through a small telescope, experts said today.
It was only spotted on Wednesday by a robotic telescope in New Mexico that scans the skies for such hazards. An alert was then put out yesterday by the International Astronomical Union's Minor Planet Center in Massachusetts.
On November 8, a 400-metre wide asteroid weighing 50 million tons, called 2005 YU55, is expected to fly inside the orbit of the moon.
Passing by at a distance of just 201,000 miles, the asteroid is the largest object to approach the earth so close that we have known about in advance.

US foreign policy
US message to Iran: We leave everything to you!
For 100 days Nato bombs Libya - with moderate success. The reserve of the USA is also remarkable in the conflict. Under President Obama a historic change of paradigm in international relationships can be observed.
"America, it is time to devote yourself to the forming of states here at home." That is the historic key message of President Barack Obama with which he justifies the start of the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan in the night towards Thursday - 10,000 soldiers until end of the year, 23,000 further until summer 2012 and almost all other 68.000 until 2014. The withdrawal happens much quicker and more extensively than military leadership of the US under General David Petraeus as leaving commander of the US troops in Afghanistan and Foreign Minister Hillary Clinton had requested. Obama's decision is rather a political one than a military.
This key message ushers in a change of paradigm of American foreign policy. Turning away from international interventionism towards new contemplation of isolationism of the solution of problems at home.

Convicted LA priest had record in Italy.
USA: Despite priest's dark past, he was given ample time to find new victims
Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles: A visiting priest who was convicted of multiple sex abuse counts had a prior criminal history in Italy and was rejected by another Southern California diocese because of concerns about his past.
Rev. Fernando Lopez Lopez pleaded guilty in 2000 to repeated sexual violence on a minor in Italy before he left the Diocese of Tivoli and arrived in Southern California.
Some of the worst of the abuse took place in the six months after L.A. Archdiocese officials were warned about the Rev. Fernando Lopez Lopez. With his record, he should never have been hired.
According to an Italian court official, Lopez Lopez pleaded guilty in 2000 to repeated sexual violence on a minor.
So Rev. Lopez Lopez ends up in California, where he seemed to have no trouble finding new victims.
Los Angeles church officials did not confront Lopez Lopez with the information for two months.

A Catholic bishop in Northern California whose diocese has been embroiled in priest sex abuse cases resigned yesterday from his post after 11 years.
The Vatican announced that Pope Benedict XVI accepted the resignation of Bishop Daniel Walsh of Roman Catholic Diocese of Santa Rosa.
The diocese has been hit with several lawsuits under Walsh's tenure involving alleged child sex abuse by former priests.
In 2006, Walsh was threatened with criminal charges for failing to report accusations of misconduct against the Rev. Xavier Ochoa for five days after the priest admitted the abuses to Walsh. Authorities said the delay allowed Ochoa time to flee to Mexico before he could be arrested.

The Archdiocese of Louisville's Sexual Abuse Review Board concluded that claims against Schook were valid.
USA: Catholic priest indicted on seven sodomy charges
A Jefferson County grand jury indicted a Roman Catholic priest Thursday on seven felony charges of sodomy, alleging he sexually abused two boys in their early teens in the 1970s.
The Rev. James R. Schook, 63 - whom the Archdiocese of Louisville removed from ministry last year - faces three counts of sodomy in the second degree and four counts of sodomy in the third degree.
Six of the charges involve one boy and incidents alleged between 1971 and 1974. The seventh charge involves a second boy with an incident alleged between 1974 and 1975.
Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz temporarily removed Schook from ministry in July 2009 - when he was serving as pastor of St. Ignatius Martyr Church on Rangeland Road - after the archdiocese received the first in a series of complaints alleging that Schook had committed sexual abuse in the 1970s and 1980s.
The Archdiocese of Louisville announced in March 2010 that Schook's suspension from ministry became permanent after its Sexual Abuse Review Board concluded that claims against him were valid.

Clergy abuse in Kansas: Diocese to investigate sexual misconduct claims against priests and others.
USA: Weeks of turmoil in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph
A lawsuit was filed alleging sexual abuse by a Kansas City priest removed from his duties in June for what the diocese called credible allegations of misconduct with minors.
"Regardless of an individual's background, if he or she is picked and paid by the bishop, and answers to the bishop, little will change, kids, parents and families need independent professionals in law enforcement to step up here. They don't need the bishop bolstering his staff and calling that 'reform.'"
The lawsuit filed Thursday was the second against the Rev. Michael Tierney in nine months that alleges sexual abuse.
The suit, filed in Jackson County Circuit Court by Edward Sandridge, 52, accuses Tierney of sexually abusing Sandridge at a YMCA in the early 1970s. It says the diocese knew of Tierney's misconduct with children and covered it up.
The lawsuit names both Tierney and the diocese as defendants. It seeks unspecified monetary damages.
"For more than six months we repeatedly urged Bishop Finn to suspend Tierney and launch a thorough, independent investigation into the allegations against him. The bishop has promised a 'one strike and you're out' policy. But it took three men to accuse Tierney of abuse before Finn finally suspended him."

Schook remains a priest but has been forbidden to do public ministry or present himself as a priest.
USA: Sex abuse case - Roman Catholic Louisville priest
Rev. James R. Schook, 63, was arraigned in Jefferson Circuit Court on three counts of second-degree sodomy and four counts of third-degree sodomy. The Archdiocese of Louisville removed him from ministry last year.
Six of the charges involve one boy, with the incidents alleged to have occurred from 1971 to 1974. The seventh charge involves a second boy with an incident alleged from 1974 to 1975.
The difference in degree reflects the ages of the boys. Second-degree sodomy involves "deviate sexual intercourse" with a child who is 12 or 13, while third-degree counts involve victims who are 14 or 15.
A grand jury has been investigating Schook for several months. Louisville Metro Police first investigated him in 2009.

Not one church official faced criminal charges.
Ireland: New report into priest child abuse
The Irish government is publishing a new report into the Catholic Church's concealment of child abuse by priests, a long-running scandal that has ravaged the church's once-exalted position in Ireland.
The report details how church leaders in the County Cork diocese of Cloyne suppressed evidence of complaints against 19 priests from 1996 to 2009.
"This report covers the suppression of much more recent crimes than those covered in previous investigations. It will show that the church has continued to ignore its child protection policies," said Maeve Lewis, director of a support group for child abuse victims called One in Four.
This will be the fourth government-ordered report into Catholic abuse cover-ups in a country that has suffered waves of public uproar against the church since 1994. That year, the Irish government collapsed over its failure to extradite one of the priesthood's most rampant paedophiles, Brendan Smyth, to Northern Ireland to face child molestation charges there.
Two commissions have forced church authorities in Dublin and south-east Wexford to hand over their secret files on paedophile priests stretching back to the mid-1970s. In all cases, investigators found that church leaders protected their priests.
A third report published in 2009 showed that thousands of children suffered sexual, physical and psychological abuse in workhouse-style schools from the 1930s to 1960s - and not one church official faced criminal charges.

The majority, unfortunately, don't ever report their abuser
Canada: Student says he revealed abuse in confessional
Another former Saskatoon high school student who has come forward with an accusation of sexual assault against a Catholic priest says he reported the abuse to another priest during confession.
Bob Kloshinsky says he was sexually assaulted by serial pedophile Father Hodgson Marshall when he was a student at St. Paul's High School in the early 1960s.
"I was a victim. The worst thing is the other priest knew and did nothing," said Kloshinsky in a telephone interview this week from his home in British Columbia.
Meanwhile, the first two Saskatoon men to come forward, Tim Ryan and Gary Mulligan, say they've given statements to police about Marshall and an investigation is underway. Marshall, now 89 years old, declined to comment for this story, said an Ontario corrections official.
Kloshinsky and the other victims learned in late May that Marshall had pleaded guilty to abusing 17 Ontario students both before and after his time at St. Paul's. And they want everyone to know what he did in Saskatoon. Kloshinsky's account of the abuse is similar to the experiences of the other Saskatoon victims.
Marshall went on to victimize boys across Canada for the next 30 years.
Staff Sgt. Jean-Marc Voisard of Saskatoon Police Service personal violence section, said .... The majority, unfortunately, don't ever report their abuser, he said.

1.5 Years of Catholic abuse scandal
Imagine the conditions in a Catholic country. Imagine that someone there would report a Catholic priest to the police. Such a person would have to fear for his life and that is the best guarantee for people who rape other people to be able to continue calmly. And this danger, to be killed because of reporting a Catholic priest, exists everywhere, also in so-called civilized countries. There are plenty of people who just wait for the opportunity to get rid of such a person for “the honour of God.” Read more >>

Germany: Catholics leave church in droves
It is a sheer unprecedented membership decrease: After the abuse cases clearly more believers resigned last year from the Catholic Church than 2009. For the first time more people left the church than were newly baptized. Especially huge is the church flight in Bavaria.

Plasma waves heat up sun
How is the atmosphere of the sun heated up to millions of degrees? Researchers did not know this until now. Now new observations suggest that plasma waves play an important part. With this a theory from the year 1942 might by confirmed.
It seems absolutely paradoxically: The surface of the sun is with about 5500 degrees Celsius clearly cooler than far out lying atmosphere regions. How these are nevertheless heated up to millions of degrees is not quite clear to researchers. An international team of astronomers has now presented a new explanation for the heating up of the corona. Strictly speaking it is of course an old one - though proven with new, fascinating observations.

Only a very small percentage of abuse cases becomes known
Because only a very small percentage of abuse cases becomes known the legitimate assumption exists that practically all Catholic ministers, priests and bishops and cardinals and popes, are sex criminals. The Catholic Church wants the world to believe that 4% of its ministers are criminals and so wants to achieve that the real situation is not recognized, that this percentage is not much less than 100%.

A Roman Catholic religious order agreed Thursday to pay $24.8 million to settle lawsuits filed by 39 survivors of priest sex abuse in Delaware.
The settlement follows the Diocese of Wilmington's recent $77.4 million settlement with 154 victims.
"They'll say pleasant platitudes in public now, but the truth is that they fought tooth and nail to prevent these victims from having any legal recourse and prevent these predators from being known to parishioners, parents and the public."

Colombia church ordered to pay abuse victims $240,000
A Colombian court has ordered the Catholic Church here to pay the parents of two children abused by a priest $240,000, a first in this devoutly Catholic country, church officials said.
The church has appealed the judgment handed down by a court in the city of Ibague against the dioceses of Libano and Honda, the secretary general of the Colombian conference of bishops said.
"The priest has already been punished, and there is not a contractual relationship between him and the church. It is not a work relationship, but a spiritual one. This is a private matter related to personal conduct," he said.
The priest, Luis Enrique Duque Valencia, was sentenced to 18 years in prison for abusing two boys, ages 7 and 11.

Diocesan officials knew that Kownacki sexually abused other children, but continued to assign him to different parishes.
USA: Illinois diocese pays $6.3 million after failed appeal of sex-abuse case
A clergy sex abuse case with misconduct dating back to the 1970s finally ended Wednesday when James Wisniewski's attorney was handed checks totaling $6.3 million.
Though the case during trial shed a disturbing light on how disgraced priest Raymond Kownacki was assigned to minister at different parishes, it brought little resolution to a set of uncertainties facing the Roman Catholic Diocese of Belleville.
Kownacki recently moved to a small apartment in Dupo, Ill., to an assisted living home in South St. Louis. He could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
Weilmuenster, the attorney, said priests have approached him in support of the case that was paid out Wednesday. Both he and his client, Wisniewski, are still Catholics.
Church documents and witness testimony presented during the trial showed that diocesan officials knew that Kownacki sexually abused other children, but continued to assign him to different parishes.
The diocese has argued it is not responsible for telling parishioners about sexual misconduct involving priests including Kownacki.

The Vatican and the Irish government
The Vatican is yet to respond to the Cloyne report, despite repeated calls on it to do so from the Irish government. Sources in Rome said in July that senior clerics were "crafting" a response, but it is yet to be issued. However, the papal nuncio to Ireland Giuseppe Leanza was withdrawn and transferred to the Czech Republic.
Meanwhile, it's emerged a new report from the National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church will document hundreds more cases of abuse in the diocese of Raphoe, in Co Donegal.
The report to be published later this month details hundreds of abuses by 20 priests in the diocese over 40 years, and states the Church was "uncooperative, obstructive and misleading when gardai became involved in a number of investigations".

The associations of the victims of the church estimate the number of unreported cases of abuse to be many times higher.
Germany: Catholic Church pays compensation: A lifelong abuse victim.
With 3000 to 10 000 Euro the Catholic Church compensates 560 victims. The Gelsenkirchen Wilfried Fesselmann, who was abused as a boy by a pastor, says: That is not enough.
It is a satisfaction for many abuse victims when they now get a few thousand Euro from the Catholic Church. Not so for Wilfried Fesselmann, who as boy had to satisfy orally a chaplain and was pursued by the memories of this traumatic experience his whole life. For the Gelsenkirchener this compensation, redress, settlement or whatever one calls it, is not enough.
For 15 years the family father is not able to work, driving a car is difficult for him, he cannot get at all into a plane. Post traumatic panic disorder the doctors call his sickness; Fesselmann takes psychiatric drugs.
This admission of the church, this concession towards the victims, whose associations estimate the number of unreported cases of abuse to be many times higher, is not enough for Fesselmann.
At the end of August he wants to go to the county court in Bonn, with his US American lawyer Jeff Anderson. The experienced jurist from Minnesota has already achieved a gigantic success in compensation cases: In a case of 200 deaf who were abused in childhood in a church home, Anderson achieved several million Dollar damages.

Catholic priest had even planned a holiday with his youngest victim (13).
Germany: Andreas L 46 - Sex pastor planned luxury holiday with 13-year-old boy
Hildesheim/Lebenstedt - The trust in God, which parents of his charge showed for him, he exploited shamefully: Andreas L. (46), the Catholic priest from Lebenstedt confessed sexual abuse of three children. Searching for possible further victims the special commission "Sin" interrogated him now for the second time. In the inquiry L. admitted that he had even planned a holiday with his youngest victim (13): Two weeks at the palm beach of Bayahibe (Dominican Republic) for 2335 Euro - in the "superior" room with sea view.
The pastor wanted to start with the child on the 29th of July at 9:05 o'clock from Brussels to Punta Cana. Return trip on the 12th of August. Andreas L. had already booked in the middle of March, but on the 27th of June he suddenly cancelled the holiday, but had to pay a 933 Euro fee for it.
Superintendent Joachim Grande (56), police Braunschweig: "We are dealing here with one of the known victims which was abused by him over a long time."

Kerkhoff is to have abused children and youth in 37 cases in the years 2002 to 2006.
Germany/South Africa: Town Willich: Trial against Pastor Kerkhoff to be continued in South Africa
In the case of Pastor Georg Kerkhoff coming from Willich, who 2007 took over the ministry in the German language Catholic parish St. Bonifatius in Johannesburg on behalf of the German Bishop Conference, the trial in South Africa continues since the weekend.
This was announced by Johannes Heibel, chairman of the initiative against violence and sexual abuse with children and youth, with reference to authority circles in South Africa.
Kerkhoff is accused having assaulted children at a camp for Communion children. He disputes the accusations. As Heibel further announces, at the beginning of the week the hearing of evidence was continued. Possibly it is to be finalized today. According to earlier announcements of the South African investigators one can reckon with an end of the trial in South Africa earliest at the end of August. But it can also still stretch into next year.
An international warrent for arrest from the prosecution authority Krefeld is available. He is to have abused children and youth in 37 cases in the years 2002 to 2006. Kerkhoff had reported himself to the authorities in spring 2010. The accusations brought against him would be true in many points, the priest had confirmed according to details of the diocese Aachen.

Slovenia: Paedophile priest transferred to youth home
The Slovenian Roman Catholic Church obviously does not take the prosecution of suspected child abusers in its ranks too seriously. As the daily paper "Dnevnik" reports, two priests, who got under paedophile suspicion, were only half-heartedly disciplined contrary to Vatican instructions. One priest could even move to a diocesan education home, in which also holiday programs for school children took place. A small parish in the Upper Krain was entrusted to the second priest.
Laibach is now Ljubljana in Slovenia.

A Marburg priest is to have abused the son of the housekeeper. There was now a settlement before court. For the judge in the industrial tribunal Hans Gottlob Rühle the Marburg presbytery housekeeper is a "victim of circumstances".
In the 90-years the today 54-year-old Father has presumably abused the son of the housekeeper. According to her details the boy was then between five and eleven years old. But she obviously only heard about the sexual interferences in March 2010 when the Father came forward himself in the course of the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. He reported himself to the abuse representative of the German Order. The Father, a priest of the German Order, was immediately suspended. He first came into the psychiatry and in the meantime lives in an order monastery in Bavaria.

Scientist to fire spacecraft at asteroid in Earth defence test
Scientists plan to fire a spacecraft into an asteroid in an effort to prepare for one being on a direct collision course with Earth.
Plans for a test mission to prevent an asteroid colliding with Earth come from Nasa’s cousin, the European Space Agency.
The trial, dubbed Don Quixote, will see two spacecraft launched. One will attempt to push the asteroid of its course while the second will collect valuable data from the impact.
A potential target for the mission is a 1,600ft-wide asteroid called 99942 Apophis, which has a remote chance – roughly one in 250,000 – of hitting earth in 2036.

USA: Trenton diocese pays $1 million settlement in sexual abuse case
The Catholic Diocese of Trenton, New Jersey, has agreed to pay $1 million to five men who said they were molested by a priest when they were altar boys, their attorney said on Wednesday.
The molestations involved the Reverend Ronald Becker. Becker was a priest at Incarnation Church and school in suburban Ewing, New Jersey, where he would take the boys out of church school classrooms to molest them.
Becker was accused by his own niece, Jenni Franz, of molesting her numerous times, and the diocese paid out $325,000 in that case.
The Trenton diocese previously paid out $926,000 in settlements and victim counselling cost and 25 priests in the diocese have substantiated allegations against them.

Reason being that there is less and less molecular gas, which is responsible for the formation of stars. A third of the necessary gas is already used up.

The search for the Higgs particle is at the moment the subject of elementary particle physics. But they are still not as close on its heels as until now thought. This is shown by the presentation of new data at a particle physics conference in Mumbai.
Only few weeks ago the two great experiments at Cern had considerably narrowed down the mass sector in which this hypothetic particle can hide.
Apart from some small loopholes, which are though excluded through indirect measurements, the Higgs particle can – in case it then exists – only just hide in a mass sector between 115 and 145 GeV.

In a further talk with the Hezbollah station he said: "Iran pursues this subject (the wiping out of Israel) with determination and will never deviate from this point of view and its politics."

First semester costs insurance industry 70 billions according to estimates.
2011 already now second most expensive disaster year
The disaster in Japan burdnes insurance industry hard.
Natural disasters and accidents caused by the hand of man claimed worldwide about 26,000 dead between January and June. The greatest part of victims died in the tsunami and earth quake disaster which struck Japan in March.
The first half year costs the global insurance industry 70 billion dollar according to the reinsurer Swiss Re. That is twice as much as in the previous year and makes already now 2011 the second most expensive year in history as far as insured disaster damages are concerned.
Alone for natural disasters the insurance industry forked out 67 billion dollar according to Swiss Re. The previous year cost it 27 billion dollar, as a report published on Friday points out. Because of the quakes in Japan and New Zealand costs caused by earth quakes are so high as never before in the current year, calculated Swiss Re.

Particles of the quantum world cooperate
The quantum world and the macroscopic world differ strongly when it is about measurements. Macroscopic systems are not influenced by it. Example: The speed of a car does not change when its speed is measured. A quantum object however changes its state when one measures its qualities. A light particle for example can take up different polarisation states at the same time. As soon as the polarisation is measured it "decides" and takes up a concrete state. Not enough with this also remote quantum objects "decide" at this moment for a clear state.
Cause for this are socalled remote effects. The discord is a measure for how distinctive such long-distance effects are. All quantum systems in which remote effects exist have a discord value which is greater than zero.

The complaint also accuses Vatican officials of creating policies that perpetuate the damage, constituting an attack against a civilian population.

Finding sheds new light on speed.
Sub-atomic particles travelling faster than light
An international team of scientists said yesterday that they had recorded sub-atomic particles travelling faster than light – a finding that could overturn one of Albert Einstein’s long-accepted fundamental laws of the universe.
Antonio Ereditato, their spokesman, said that measurements taken over three years showed neutrinos pumped from CERN near Geneva to Gran Sasso in Italy had arrived 60 nanoseconds quicker than light would have done.

Cern scientist says he sees 'no striking evidence of anything that could resemble a discovery' in hunt for Higgs boson.
Higgs boson signals fade at Large Hadron Collider
"We see no striking evidence of anything that could resemble a discovery."
One of the main objectives of the collider is to discover what gives mass to elementary particles, something many physicists credit to the Higgs boson. The LHC has two large, multipurpose detectors, Atlas and CMS, and last month both teams independently reported signals that suggested the Higgs boson might weigh between 120 and 140GeV (gigaelectronvolts), the units of mass used in particle physics. One GeV is roughly equivalent to the mass of a proton, a subatomic particle found in atomic nuclei.
Results so far suggest that if the most simple version of the Higgs boson is real (some theories call for multiple Higgs particles), it must have a mass between 114GeV and 145GeV.
“We are months away from really solving one of the major mysteries in fundamental physics.”
"If the Higgs boson is not there, then a completely new scenario opens up: there must be something else that plays the role of the Higgs boson." See

Atom smasher. From an article dated 22 July 2011.
Cern scientists suspect glimpse of Higgs boson
Scientists may have caught their first glimpse of the elusive Higgs boson, which is thought to give mass to the basic building blocks of nature.
The world's most powerful atom smasher hunts for signs of new physics by slamming subatomic particles together at nearly the speed of light in an 18-mile round tunnel beneath the French-Swiss border.
The long-sought particle was first postulated in 1964 by Peter Higgs, a physicist at Edinburgh University, in a theory that described how fundamental particles gained mass from an invisible field that pervaded the cosmos.
The field has been compared to a snowfield that clings to particles and slows them down to different extents. Light particles pass through the field swiftly as if they have skis on, while heavy particles trudge through as though walking barefoot.
The boson was nicknamed the "God particle" in 1993 by the Nobel prize-winning physicist, Leon Lederman. The monicker is detested by Higgs. "I find it embarrassing because, though I'm not a believer myself, I think it is the kind of misuse of terminology which I think might offend some people," he said.
From previous work, the Higgs boson was thought to have a mass somewhere between 114 and 185GeV (gigaelectronvolts) - one GeV is roughly equivalent to the mass of a proton, a subatomic particle found in atomic nuclei.

The end for Tevatron at Fermilab: An era ends.
Legendary particle accelerator Tevatron at Fermilab starts drawing its pension
After 25 years it is enough: Power will be cut off at the US particle accelerator Tevatron near Chicago.
Once the most powerful particle accelerator of the world, Tevatron stood in the shadow of the European relations in the end: The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the nuclear research centre in Geneva is seven times stronger than the US plant. “With great speed the LHC puts in the shade what we could do with Tevatron”.
Far back are the times when Tevatron dominated the headlines of particle physics. That was for example in the year 1994 the case when the standard model of particle physics could be completed with the proof of the top quark. But also after the end of the Tevatron era the research at Fermilab will continue. Only quite 40 of the 1800 employees will leave the institution according to an official statement. Voluntarily, it is said.
Also another test arrangement at Fermilab will stand in the focus of the public after the end of Tevatron. The researchers at the Minos experiment want to check reports of their Geneva colleagues, who want to have measured over light fast neutrinos. Should the results be confirmed it would be a physical revolution, but the experts are sceptical.

Why is the spiritual world not visible to us?
Because it would certainly be easy for God to announce his will audibly to men but the results of this would not be people desiring him of their own free will but creatures fulfilling his commandments in fear and blind obedience. But when God uses a mediator to whom he reveals his will – these revelations now perplex fellow man on the one hand, but on the other hand do not force him to accept them as divine revelations, then man is left with free will that way; no compulsion makes man unfree, and this is of greatest importance.

Netherlands: Compensation for abuse victims
The Roman Catholic Church in the Netherlands must provide more than just money to victims of sexual abuse, an independent commission appointed to investigate such crimes said.
"Financial compensation alone is not enough. Nor is aid alone," said the commission, named after its chairman Wim Deetman, a Protestant former education minister and former mayor of The Hague.
The Netherlands has one of the worst records in a scandal that has rocked the Catholic Church in Europe and the US, and which has forced Pope Benedict to apologise to victims of sexual abuse by priests.
In a report published last year, the Dutch commission said 1 975 people had come forward saying they were victims of sexual and physical abuse while in the care of the Catholic Church in the Netherlands.
That put it second only to Ireland in terms of the number of cases.

But the stage of free will is for these beings, which are still in the bound state, a great danger insofar as men can use their will in a way that is working against God and now bring the bound beings in great misery by them ending the course in a form prematurely which still has not ended, therefore certainly freeing the being from the respective form, this however has not yet reached the state of maturity which is prerequisite for the next form. So this now unbound spiritual is so to speak relieved of its activity, which it had to achieve before, cannot yet enliven the next form and therefore has to be inactive inevitably, which is a painful state for the being.

Catholic bishop indicted by a grand jury.
USA: Bishop Robert Finn faces criminal charges
The suit is one of a string of legal actions against Father Shawn Ratigan and Bishop Robert Finn, the leader of the 134 000-member Catholic Diocese of Kansas City - St Joseph.
Ratigan has been charged with multiple counts of child pornography. The 46-year old priest is in jail awaiting trial.
Finn was indicted by a grand jury in Jackson County last month on a misdemeanor charge of failing to report Ratigan to police.
Finn is the highest-ranking Catholic official ever to face criminal charges in the US in a child sexual abuse case.
The allegations against the bishop are tied to evidence that even after Finn was made aware of the Photos found on Ratigan's laptop, he did not report it to police or to the parents of children who interacted with Ratigan.
