Argentinian Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio Becomes First Latin American Pope

Argentine Jorge Bergoglio has been elected pope. Jorge Bergoglio chose the name Pope Francis and is the first ever pope from the Americas and the first from outside Europe in more than a millennium.

After announcing "Habemus Papum" - "We have a pope!" - a cardinal revealed the identity of the new pontiff, using his Latin name.

"I would like to thank you for your embrace," the new Pope said.

Bergoglio had reportedly finished second in the 2005 conclave that produced Benedict XVI - who last month became the first pope to resign in 600 years.

"As you know, the duty of the conclave was to appoint a bishop of Rome. It seems to me that my brother cardinals have chosen one who is from far away, but here I am" he said, adding that he thanked the church "for your embrace" as well as the cardinals who elected him.

"First and foremost, I would like to pray for our emeritus pope, Benedict XVI. Let us pray all of us together ... so that he's blessed by the lord and guarded," he said.

Francis was elected to the papacy after two days of conclave meetings with five rounds of voting. Voting in the conclave, which began Tuesday afternoon, is confidential and cardinals were sworn to secrecy, but Francis received at least 77 votes, which is the minimum two-thirds required to become pope. There were 115 cardinals eligible to vote in the conclave. All were under 80 before Benedict's retirement, as required by Vatican rules. In 2005, when Benedict was elected, it took two days and four votes to elect him.

Francis has said same-sex marriage attacks God's plan, he also said that gay people adopting children is an act of discrimination against children.

But he has shown care for people with HIV and AIDS, such as in 2001 when he visited AIDS patients in a hospice, where he washed and kissed the feet of 12 patients.

Teens love prescription drugs

Teens love prescription drugs
A report by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University found that more Americans were abusing controlled prescription drugs than cocaine, hallucinogens, inhalants and heroin combined.

Abusers of prescription drugs nearly doubled to over 15 million from 1992 to 2003.

Of 15.1 million abusers of prescription drugs , 2.3 million are teenagers, but teens turn to prescription drugs at much higher rates than adults do, the study reports.

Meth is top drug problem, survey says

Meth is top drug problem, survey says
According to a crime survey of 45 states, Methamphetamine has overtaken cocaine as the biggest drug problem in rural and small towns in the US. More than half of the 500 county law enforcement polled said the highly addictive substance was their biggest drug problem. Methamphetamine is a chemical variant of amphetamine with much more powerful effects. It is easy to produce using chemicals found on farms, and the homemade labs which produce it are less easy to detect in the countryside reports BBC

The ingredients are highly toxic and highly flammable, often resulting in serious explosions. And the drug itself, which is smoked, inhaled or injected, is extremely addictive, producing a high that lasts several hours and leading to binges that often last days or even weeks.

Aspirin, vitamin E fail in cancer prevention

Aspirin, vitamin E fail in cancer prevention
A 12-year of study involving nearly 39,876 healthy U.S. women has found that regular, low doses of aspirin do not generally prevent cancer, and vitamin E is ineffective in warding off heart disease and cancer reports Reuters. The women were at least 45 years of age when the study began 1992. They were followed until 2004.

The report did find aspirin might have a protective effect against lung cancer, but the authors said that needs to be confirmed with more research, and they pointed out that there is no way of knowing whether higher doses of aspirin might have yielded different results.

"However, based on the data currently available, we do not suggest that doctors recommend low-dose aspirin therapy for primary prevention of cancer," said Nancy Cook of Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, chief author of the aspirin study.

While aspirin may not work for cancer, a number of earlier studies have found it does appear to help prevent heart disease, a bigger killer of women than cancer.

Tuesday's findings on aspirin and vitamin E were published in two reports in this week's Journal of the American Medical Association.

NASA ready

NASA ready
Thursday, NASA officially set July 13 as the launch date for the first space shuttle flight since the 2003 Columbia disaster 2 1/2 years ago. The U.S. space agency had previously hoped to launch the shuttle Discovery in May, but halted that plan in April and said more work was needed on a redesigned fuel tank.

"We believe this is the cleanest flight we have ever done," NASA Administrator Michael Griffin told reporters after a two-day flight review, while acknowledging that all space flight carries risks.

"It's risky; we've done what we can do to minimize that."

"Based on a very thorough and very successful flight readiness review we're currently 'go for launch' of Discovery on July 13," Griffin said.
