Saudi raid kills two officers, six suspected militants
J1DDAH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi police said they raided a farm where militants were holed up Monday, touching off a battle with firearms and grenades that killed six suspects and two officers.
Almost weekly raids since militants staged bombing attacks in the capital in mid-May have revealed an extensive network of alleged terrorist cells and weapons caches across Saudi Arabia.
The latest raid came as U.S. lawmakers debate a report that accuses Saudi Arabia of not doing enough to counter terrorism. Some legislators charged the Bush administration classified part of the report that contained harsher criticisms of Saudi Arabia.
Heat wave, drought gouge European industries
BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) — A heat wave and a drought are gouging a multibillion-dollar hole into Europe’s economy, crippling shipping, shriveling crops and driving up the cost of electricity.
In Romania, dredgers dug into the Danube on Monday to deepen the river bed for hundreds of stalled barges, while in Croatia, five tons of dead fish polluted a lake.
Levels on the Danube were under two yards near Bazias in southwestern Romania, more than a yard below the minimum needed for barge traffic. At the southern port of Zimnicea, dredgers scooped up sludge from the river bed Monday, attempting to deepen navigation channels for the 251 ships waiting to move upstream to key markets in central and northern Europe.
Weeks of heat and dryness also choked other parts of the Balkans and the rest of Europe.

An answer found in a study published by the American Academy of Audiology
SAO PAULO, BRAZIL -- A new study recently concluded in South America and published by the American Academy of Audiology utilizes a lest that identifies dead regions located deep within the ear that previously went undetected, The findings dramatically affect the science of fating hearing aids for individuals with high frequency hearing 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 noise, rasher titan improved clarity. Armed with the new study findings, the newest generation of hearing aids bypass dead cells instead of amplify Dottle Wills them, and normal

amplification instead, improving speech understanding in a noisy environment.
Exciting results like these can help so many hearing impaired people have an unprecedented level of comfort is 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 test each patient using sound field speech noise, simulating hearing in a noisy crowd We are able to determine maximum speech understanding by frequency-shaping these new hearing aids"
