Liberia’s warlord heads into exile in Nigeria
MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) — Vowing “I will be back,” Charles Taylor flew into exile Monday, leaving Liberia in ruins after his 14-year fight for power and a new president to deal with rebels laying siege to the capital.
Three U.S. warships briefly hove into view off Monrovia within minutes of Taylor’s ceding power to his vice president, Moses Blah. Hundreds of Liberians, thin and ragged, lined the rock-lined shores, exclaiming and hugging at a dramatic day they prayed would mark a turning point for their country.
Taylor flew to Abuja, the Nigerian capital, within three hours of resigning as president, leaving office under pressure from the United States, fellow West African leaders and rebels who have seized most of Liberia in their three-year campaign to depose the warlord-tumed-president.
Iraq postwar costs likely to exceed bill for fighting
WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. bill for rebuilding Iraq and maintaining security there is widely expected to far exceed the war’s price tag, and some private analysts estimate it could reach as high as $600 billion.
The Bush administration is offering only hazy details so far, upsetting Republican and Democrat lawmakers.
The closest the administration has come to estimating America’s postwar burden was when L. Paul Bremer, U.S. administrator of occupied Iraq, said last month “getting the country up and running again” could cost $100 billion and take three years.
In a recent interview on CNBC’s “Capital Report,” Bremer said of rebuilding costs: “It’s probably well above $50 billion, $60 billion, maybe $100 billion. It’s a lot of money."
The administration has refused to provide projections, saying too much is unpredictable.

How Can I Hear, Yet Not Understand?
An answer found in a study published by the American Academy of Audiology
SAO PAULO, BRAZIL ~ A new study recently concluded in South Amenta and published by the American Academy of Audiology utilizes a test that identifies dead regions located deep within the ear that previously went undetected, The findings dramatically affect the science of filling hearing aids for individuals with high frequency heanng loss who have not found a satisfactory solution with hearing aids before
Most significant is the surprising finding that amplifying dead cells will actually produce poorer speech understanding with background norse, rather than improved clarity. Armed with the new study findings. the newest generation ol heanng aids bypass dead cells instead of amplify Dottle Wills them, and normal
Hearing Aid hearing cells receive
amplification instead, improving speech understanding in a noisy environment.
Exciting results like these can help so many heanng impaired people have an unprecedented level of comfort in communication “We employ a similar method with diagnostic equipment, including 2-channel audiometers and calibrated sound booths,” said Dottle Wills of NewSound Hearing Centers “We lest each patient using sound field speech noise, simulating heanng in a noisy crowd We are able to determine maximum speech understanding by frequency-shaping these new hearing aids."
The results achieved with this new technology are significant and for the first lime, patients report a dramatic improvement in understanding speech in noisy environments These new products come in all the different shell sizes, including the smallest digital models.
During the Texas release, NewSound is offering these new frequency-shaping products on a 30-day trial basis We invite you to try this new technology in your own daily routine for 30 days lf speech understanding is not improved, there will be no charge to you - 100% satisfaction is guaranteed in writing Call for an appointment: 830-620-4327.
