said But we ask people to bear with us because this all takes time If you see crews go by and theres still stuff in the trees after they leave WASHINGTON AP Heightened activity detected by spy satellites around a North Korean nuclear plant has American intelligence ana lysts in disagreement Is the reclusive communist govern ment rushing to produce nuclear weapons or ing Throughout January Amer ican spy satellites have detect ed covered trucks apparently taking on cargo at the nuclear storage facility at Yongbyon where spent nuclear fuel rods are stored officials said Friday on condition of anonymity When processed enough plutonium could be extracted from the rods to make four or five nuclear weapons The nuclear watchdog has said there are rods White House spokesman Ari Fleischer would not comment on the intelligence but warned Pyongyang North Koreas cap ital against taking another provocative step that further isolates North Korea from the international Immersed in planning for a possible war against Iraq the Bush administration has played down Korean develop ments of recent months even as North Korea continued to ratchet up the tension There is a broadening con sensus in the administration that the reclusive communist regime is moving quickly down the path toward devel oping nuclear weapons one senior defense official said At the same time another said that because North Koreans know theyre being watched Pyongyang is also suspected of maneuvering to force Amer icans to the bargaining table The fact that theyve done this in broad daylight as it were suggests to me that this is part of the brinksmanship with the United said Kurt Campbell an Asia spe cialist at the Center for Strate gic and International Studies and a policy adviser at the Pentagon during the Clinton administration 1 think theyre playing with he said Even though the administration has feigned nonchalance the reality is that tampering with plutonium that could be shipped or smug gled is extraordinarily serious and I would argue crosses a very clear and bright red Officials say they dont real ly know what North Korea is up to at the longshuttered plant which is north of Pyongyang It is possible that the trucks moving there over recent weeks are loading spent fuel rods either to be stored else where or in preparation for processing one official said More people have been working at the complex including grading roads signs that the regime in Pyongyang is resuming operations The activity is not particu larly unexpected since the Koreans withdrew from a global antinuclear pact and said they would restart the reactor at Yongbyon to gener ate electricity But restarting it would be another ominous step in a cri sis that has been escalating since October Under President Clinton the United States drew up plans to bomb Yongbyon in 1994 That crisis was defused with an energy deal under which Pyongyang agreed to mothball the facility in return for oil shipments and con struction of less threatening nuclear power plants by a con sortium of the United States Japan and South Korea Scientists closer to growing humancompatible organs OMAHA Neb AP Sci entists say they successfully grafted a pigs heart to a sheep by manipulating the immune systems of both ani mals a step that may soon allow scientists to grow organs for human transplan tation Other scientists conduct ing similar crossspecies experiments said the Nebras ka results are limited because the livestock are genetically similar More research into the biochem istry of tissue rejection is needed before human tests could take place they cau tioned The main practical limi tation is that the immunity barrier between the sheep and the pig is probably lower than that between a pig and a said Dr Jeffrey Platt a transplant biologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minn It would not shock me to find out it didnt have that big an impact on a Platt said Details of the experiment conducted on 13 pairs of pigs and sheep at the University of Nebraska Medical Center appear in the February issue of the journal Annals of Surgery First researchers took bone marrow cells from the sheep and transferred them to a pig fetus After the pig was born they took disease fighting white cells from the pigs spleen and transferred them back to the sheep These cells contained genetic material from both animals When the pig matured the pigs heart was grafted onto the outside of the sheep and connected to blood vessels located below the sheeps neck The sheep retained their own hearts Modest amounts of immunosuppression drugs were given to the sheep to avoid organ rejection but the doses were lower than those normally given to humans receiving heart transplants said the studys senior author William Beschorner Of the 13 sheep with graft ed pig hearts one rejected the new heart Five more showed milder rejection signs and were successfully treated with antiinflamma tory medications The remaining sheep showed no signs of organ rejection for as long as 70 days Time for a Change CHEVY NEW BRAUNFELS 725IH 35 SOUTH EXIT 186 NEW BRAUNFELS TX 78130 830 6063451 Find us on the web at
