Above all , they got over Lincoln’s point that “ the necessity of being ready increase”, for they left no doubt that this was not the climax of their campaign for equality but merely the beginning, that they were going to stay in the streets until they could get equality in the schools, restaurants, houses and employment agencies of the nation, and that, as they demonstrated here today, they had found an effective way to demonstrate for changes in the laws without breaking the law themselves.

The advertising campaign didn't have much effect on sales.

An invisible border divides those arguing for computers in the classroom on the behalf of students' career prospects and those arguing for computers in the classroom for broader reasons of radical educational reform.

Their sponsor, Mr. Parizio Bertelli, Prada couture house CEO, offered to pay for the Olympic campaigns of three top New Zealand-based sailors if they would coach the Italian team.

So far, says Dr. Aila Rissanen, president of the Finnish Association for the Study of Obesity, she has been unable to persuade either the government or local health authorities to launch a similarly large-scale anti-obesity campaign.

But he's not devoting much time to his campaign.

Ms. Hughes first worked for Mr. Bush more than a decade ago in his campaign for Texas governor. She served as communications director during his first term at the White House, but left after his re-election campaign to return to her home state of Texas with her family.

White House officials say the president is launching a campaign to sharpen the focus on two of the biggest concerns for Americans, the war in Iraq and the economy at home.

The president is also trying to refocus public attention on an improving U.S. economy and his plans to reform the federal retirement program, known as Social Security. After four months of White House campaigning for changes to Social Security, the CBS News / New York Times poll shows only one quarter of Americans approve of the president's plan.

The pictures were first published by The Sun newspaper in London. The paper reported it received them from a U.S. military source who hoped the humiliating photos would hurt the Iraqi insurgency, which has been conducting an intensified bombing campaign in recent weeks. The Sun quotes its source as saying the pictures show that Saddam is a "humble, old man now" and that they prove that his Baath Party is "never coming back."

Some prominent Republicans, including former First Lady Nancy Reagan, have called on President Bush to ease restrictions on federal funding for more embryonic stem cell lines. Former President Ronald Reagan died last year after a long battle with Alzheimer's. His son, Ron Jr., made stem cells an issue in last year's presidential campaign with a speech at the Democratic National Convention.

A two-month campaign by the administration to win support for the president's Social Security reform plan has drawn little public enthusiasm. And so Mr. Bush used the opportunity before a national audience to make his case once again.

Concern over the president's plan is not limited to Democrats. Some Republicans are nervous about public opinion polls that suggest growing majorities disapprove of the president's approach to Social Security, even as he campaigns on the issue around the country.

A consortium of more than 60 international non-governmental organizations says it will launch a global campaign on the Right to Water on March 22, which is World Water Day. The activists say they want the United Nations to begin negotiations for a legally binding Convention to provide safe, clean water for millions of people around the world.

The non-governmental organizations say plans for a citizens' campaign to provide safe, clean water for more than a billion deprived people began more than three years ago. The President of Green Cross International, Alexander Likhotal, says the campaign will officially kick off next Tuesday on World Water Day.

He says through the use of "People power", the campaign hopes to persuade governments they must do more to provide their people with clean, safe water. Currently, he says, no legal instrument exists which can force governments to do this.

"The only practical way of addressing the water crisis is through consolidation of civil society and the creation of a legally binding mechanism for resolving all water-related issues," he said. "This is why Green Cross International together with other international, national and local organizations has launched an international public campaign to urge the national governments to start the negotiations of the global treaty on the right to water."

Over the next three years, he says the campaign hopes to gather millions of signatures through an online petition in support of the Convention. He says the signatures will be presented to the United Nations as a rallying call for it to begin negotiations on a Framework Convention on the Right to Water.

Chinese officials on Monday said they shut down 12,575 Internet cafes between October and December of last year, as part of what the government calls a campaign to protect children from violent games and pornography. Officials said most of the locations closed down were located near schools.

Mr. Powell has given no indication Mr. Yushchenko intends to reverse a campaign pledge to bring the 1,600 troops home. But he says the new Ukrainian leadership has said that whatever action it takes will be in full consultation with the United States.

President Bush says Americans were presented with two different assessments of the situation in Iraq during the 2004 campaign. He says they rejected the arguments of the Democratic Party nominee, Senator John Kerry, and stood with his administration.

Every year, U.S. Marines hold an annual Christmas toy drive, where they collect toys and donations for underprivileged children. Volunteers take the children into a makeshift "store" where they are allowed to pick a few items for themselves. The "Toys for Tots" program is national campaign that has helped millions of children. Across the United States, people use lights and decorations to mark the Christmas holidays. In one neighborhood in Texas, residents have outfitted their homes with thousands of lights. Some homes have specific themes, like politics or current events.

President Bush has met with senior national security advisors to discuss the newly-released videotape from al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden. The Bush campaign says Democratic challenger Senator John Kerry is trying to use that tape to influence the outcome of Tuesday's U.S. presidential election.

On a secure video link from the campaign trail, President Bush discussed the bin Laden tape with his attorney general, the heads of the CIA and FBI, and his director of Homeland Security.

Bush campaign Communications Director Dan Bartlett says Senator Kerry is trying to score some political advantage from the tape by continuing a line of attack that Mr. Bartlett says is just plain wrong.

With three days to go before Election Day, President Bush is campaigning Saturday in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Florida. Senator Kerry is campaigning in Wisconsin, Iowa and Ohio.

President Bush and Democratic challenger Senator John Kerry used their political parties' weekly radio addresses to campaign for an election that is just 10 days away.

In the last week of campaigning, President Bush has highlighted the Senator's remarks about September 11, but it is not the whole quote. Senator Kerry did say the attack did not change him much. But he says that is because he was already concerned about terrorism, before September 11, because of his years on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

President Bush campaigned in the state of Florida Saturday before returning to his Texas ranch ahead of a Republican rally in New Mexico on Sunday.

Senator Kerry campaigned in Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico Saturday, before Sunday's Democratic rally in Ohio.

Mr. Hoon played down speculation that the U.S. request was timed to give President Bush a boost in his re-election campaign against Senator John Kerry, who has complained that the United States is bearing 90 percent of the burden in the Iraq war."I want to make clear that the request is a military request. And although it is linked to elections, it is not linked to the U.S. elections but with efforts to create the best possible security situation in which to hold the Iraqi elections in January," emphasized Mr. Hoon.

Some military analysts predict British troops would be exposed to more attacks if they take a higher profile in backing up a U.S.-led counter-terrorism campaign. The experts also say the deployment would leave about 7,000 British troops in southern Iraq without sufficient reserves if pre-election violence flares up there.

President Bush and challenger John Kerry clashed over the economy, taxes and health care, Wednesday evening, in the final debate of the presidential campaign.

President Bush and Democratic challenger John Kerry are back on the campaign trail after their second debate Friday evening.

At a political rally in the Midwest state of Missouri, the Republican president continued a familiar theme of his campaign: that Senator Kerry is a so-called flip-flopper on national security issues who changes his opinion to take whatever view is most politically opportune."Several of his statements just don't pass the credibility test," he said. "With a straight face, he said, I've only had one position on Iraq. He must think we've been on another planet. In the spring of 2003, as I ordered the invasion of Iraq, Senator Kerry said it was the right decision. Now he says it is the wrong war."

After a day of campaigning, both men meet privately with political aides to prepare for their third and last debate this coming Wednesday in the southwest state of Arizona.

President Bush and Senator John Kerry resumed their presidential campaigns Friday, one day after a televised debate that focused on foreign policy. Both sides believe they benefited from the first of three presidential debates.

Representatives from both campaigns took to the airwaves following the debate to proclaim their candidate the winner.Senator John Edwards, the Democratic vice presidential candidate, had this assessment on NBC television.

In an interview with the French news agency, AFP, Wednesday, Secretary of State Colin Powell said he was disappointed that other nations have not followed the United States' lead in terming the Janjaweed-led campaign in Darfur as genocide. Such action he said, would have ratcheted-up the pressure on the Khartoum government to curb the violence.

The situation in Iraq has become a major issue in the U.S. presidential campaign. And the Sunday morning news programs also featured the comments of key advisors to Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry.On Meet the Press, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said the situation in Iraq is much more difficult than the Bush administration is willing to admit. She said in order for there to be elections in January, U.N. officials in that country, who are making preparations for the balloting, have to feel secure.

President Bush is campaigning his way toward New York City and this week's Republican National Convention, where he will be re-nominated to run for another four years in office. Mr. Bush spoke to the nation's largest veterans' group, The American Legion.

President Bush says he is taking no chances on the way to his party's convention in New York, with rallies in the important swing states of Iowa and Pennsylvania after the American Legion meeting. He will campaign Wednesday in Ohio before flying to New York, where he will be re-nominated Thursday.

Senator Kerry breaks with tradition and speaks out during his opponent's convention with remarks to the American Legion convention Wednesday. He has made veterans a cornerstone of a campaign that emphasizes his service in the Vietnam War as evidence of his ability to serve as commander-in-chief.

Senator Kerry has pledged a range of steps to strengthen the U.S. and has received the endorsement of many veterans groups. At a campaign event Wednesday here in Boston, a dozen former U.S. generals and admirals endorsed Mr. Kerry for president.
