Natural gas pipeline explodes near Alice, Texas
September 6, 2012
A natural gas gathering pipeline exploded on Thursday about 10 miles north of Alice, Texas, said a spokesman for pipeline owner Copano Energy LLC.
No injuries were reported from the afternoon blast in the 10-inch (25.4-centimeter) Bradshaw pipeline near a compressor station, said Copano’s Craig Brown.
The section of pipeline that ruptured in the explosion has been isolated and the remaining gas and condensate in the pipe is being allowed to burn off, Brown said. Copano expects the fire will be out and the area around the pipe cool enough for the company to begin seeking a cause for the blast Friday morning.
“While it’s premature to speculate on the cause, I can tell you there were no outward signs of vandalism,” Brown said.
A gathering line collects natural gas from a field where the gas is being produced and sends it to a storage facility.
Alice is located 239 miles southwest of Houston.

OWS march rolls through Charlotte ahead of DNCSeptember 2, 2012
Hundreds of people have taken part in the March on Wall Street South event in Charlotte, carrying banners, banging drums and chanting slogans against corporate greed. The protest ahead of the Democratic National Convention proceeded peacefully.
The turnout at the event was lower than organizers had expected, with only about 1,000 activists from dozens of groups marching through the city center on Sunday.
Small groups of protesters made stops along their way to stage sit-ins in front of Bank of America headquarters and power utility Duke Energy.
The march drew people protesting against a variety of causes in addition to corporate collusion with the US government. Along with slogans like “Capitalism is holding back the human race,” and “Bail out people, not banks,” protesters were bearing signs saying “No war on Iran” and “Obama murders children with drones.”
About 100 police officers walked alongside the protesters, with a helicopter hovering above the crowd. They carried wooden batons, plastic hand ties and gas masks, but did not use them as the event went smoothly.
Only one person was arrested during the march, for intoxication, police said.
The parade route and “free speech” areas were designated by the authorities well in advance. The city also assigned time slots for speaking and marches. 
Official events tied to the official Democratic National Convention begin on Tuesday, but Charlotte authorities bolstered up security well ahead. They introduced new rules, according to which a person can face arrest for carrying water bottles, socks, markers, and other seemingly unthreatening items.
Although the organizers consider the turnout at Sunday’s event to be a success, the movement is likely to grow further over the next few days, drawing larger crowds than those seen in Tampa during the Republican National Convention, historian Gerald Horne told RT.
“I think that Charlotte does not have the problem that Tampa had with regard to an impending hurricane,” he said.“Likewise I think there is a community in North Carolina that is very much interested in raising questions concerning the war in Afghanistan, the US intervention in Syria, the debacle that was effectuated in Libya, and of course what is hanging over us all, an impending attack on Iran that may take place before the first Tuesday of November, that is to say, may take place before the US election.”

Demonstrations in Nabi Saleh have been taking place for two and a half years now, protesting against the theft of Palestinian land in the form of the nearby illegal Israeli settlement of Halamish and a water spring belonging to Palestinians that Israeli settlers have occupied for themselves, an action the Israeli government supports.

Bahrain activist Nabeel Rajab jailed for two yearsAugust 21, 2012
Prominent Bahraini human rights activist Nabeel Rajab has been jailed for three years for taking part in “illegal gatherings”.
He is already serving a three-month sentence he received in July over comments on social networking websites.
Mr Rajab, president of the Bahrain Centre for Human Rights, had previously been detained several times.
He was one of the organisers of pro-democracy protests which have rocked the Gulf kingdom since last February.
Mr Rajab’s lawyer Mohammed al-Jishi said three year-long sentences had been handed down on three separate counts.
Mr Jishi said he plans to appeal against the ruling.
Fellow activists immediately condemned the decision, with some members of the protest movement calling for demonstrations on Thursday evening.
Mr Rajab’s sentence in July came after prosecutors received complaints that he had libelled residents of the town of Muharraq on Twitter.
He wrote on Twitter, where he has more than 155,000 followers, that Prime Minister Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman al-Khalifa should step down, and that Muharraq residents had only welcomed him during a visit because he had offered them subsidies.
Mr Rajab’s appeal in that case has been deferred to 23 August, according to Mr Jishi.
Last week, several members of the US Congress wrote to the Bahraini King Hamad al-Khalifa expressing concern over Mr Rajab’s case and urging the release of “Bahrainis being held for crimes related to freedom of expression”.
