VIENNA (Reuters) - The world's nuclear watchdog said in a report circulated on Friday that Iran has ignored a U.N. Security Council call to suspend all nuclear fuel enrichment and has accelerated the program, diplomats said. They said the report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) also said Iran had done little during a 30-day grace period to answer questions meant to determine whether its nuclear activity is solely for civilian purposes. The report was being sent to the Security Council which could eventually impose sanctions on Iran. Tehran has said its enrichment policy is irreversible. It has vowed to withstand any consequences, whether financial penalties or military attack. Hours before details of the IAEA report emerged, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said his country would ignore any U.N. resolution designed to curb its atomic activities. "Those who want to prevent Iranians from obtaining their right, should know that we do not give a damn about such resolutions," he told a rally in northwest Iran.
Calif. Woman Spanked at Work Sues for $1.2M
Employees were paddled with rival companies' yard signs as part of a contest that pitted sales teams against each other, according to court documents. The winners poked fun at the losers, throwing pies at them, feeding them baby food, making them wear diapers and swatting their buttocks. Lawyers for Alarm One, an Anaheim-based, 300-employee company, said the spankings were part of a voluntary program to build camaraderie and were not discriminatory because they were given to both male and female workers.Ya gotta wonder just WTH this company was thinking with this little program. Camaraderie is built through teams working their way through difficult problems or difficult times, not through SPANKINGS and wearing diapers. I've been through some goofy programs at work, but this one takes the cake.
Iran threatens to strike at US targets if attacked - Yahoo! News
Iran vowed on Wednesday to strike at U.S. interests worldwide if it is attacked by the United States, which is keeping military options open in case diplomacy fails to curb Tehran's nuclear program. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the threat two days before the U.N. nuclear watchdog reports on whether Iran is meeting Security Council demands to halt uranium enrichment. "The Americans should know that if they assault Iran their interests will be harmed anywhere in the world that is possible," Khamenei was quoted as saying by state television. "The Iranian nation will respond to any blow with double the intensity," he said.This is starting to get a little too scary.
