The plans - arguably the biggest shake-up of border management in Europe since the creation of an internal travel zone - would apply to citizens of the United States and all other countries that now enjoy visa-free status.
"You absolutely must take a vacation," he wrote. "In jail," Kerviel replied.
"You're going on about nothing," Bakir answered. "What have you done wrong? You haven't raped anyone. You haven't done anything illegal in the sense of the law."
"I made a pile of dough. That's all," Kerviel said.
Later, Kerviel becomes more boastful of his position.
"This will show the power of Kerviel," Kerviel said.
"Or his irresponsibility," Bakir replied, before adding, "A simple and discreet boy. Unassuming. Who makes a pile of dough. And not recognized for his true value."
Most reliable studies indicate there is little difference between cellphone and land-line users on political and ideological questions. Yet a big boost in turnout of young voters, who disproportionately use cellphones, is making the best pollsters a little nervous.
Susan Pinkus, who conducts the Bloomberg/Los Angeles Times poll, says she's exploring a "multi-modal" survey that combines land lines and cellphones.
Even so, in interviews, U.S., Spanish and other European officials - most speaking on condition of anonymity because the inquiry was not over - called the plot serious and indicative of the terror threat from Pakistan...
Without sufficient evidence, Spanish police officials apparently decided they had to turn France's informer into a protected witness for the prosecution.
For all the international intrigue surrounding the suspects, the case has caused diplomatic friction among investigators. Spain's handling of the French informer has enraged officials at France's intelligence agencies and eroded trust between the countries, French and other European officials said. His continuing value as a source was destroyed when he was made a witness and the contents of his statements were leaked to the news media.
Many secular Turks are concerned that the Justice and Development Party led by Mr. Erdogan has such significant power, controlling Parliament, the presidency and the prime ministry, that it will impose its own conservative values on Turkey.
“It’s been presented as a liberty to cover the head, but in practice, it is going to evolve into a ban on uncovered hair,” said Hikmet Sami Turk, a former justice minister, speaking on NTV television.
The attacks, many anonymous e-mails, have woven together various threads - his middle name "Hussein;" schooling in Muslim Indonesia; his Chicago pastor's embrace of the anti-Semitic leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan; and his calls for dialogue with Iran - to portray Obama as the Muslim Manchurian candidate.
Leading American Jewish organizations have denounced these "hateful e-mails." Obama has condemned Farrakhan's anti-Semitism and made clear he disagrees with his pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., whose magazine honored Farrakhan last year. But he's not broken with Wright, the man who brought him to his Christian convictions.
Some doubts clearly persist among U.S. Jews, who account for just 2 percent of the population but a higher percentage of voters, and one with a large degree of influence. On a recent four-day trip to Florida, David Harris, the executive director of the American Jewish Committee, encountered the following questions:
Did Obama really attend a madrassa? What are his relations with Wright? Why does he have former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski (viewed as cool toward Israel) on his foreign policy team?
"You could sum the concerns up as 'does Obama feel Israel in his kishkas?, " Harris told me, using the Yiddish word for guts. "And does he have the steel and spine for the tough moments or believe diplomacy is the be-all and end-all of international relations?"
Such worries have surfaced in Israel, where Danny Ayalon, a former ambassador to the United States, has described Obama's candidacy as cause for "concern."
The Irish pack set up base 25 meters from the French goal and painstakingly bashed forward, hewing a few feet at a time from the defense. The Irish were less than 10 meters away, when they decided to trust their backs - a few seconds too late. O'Gara chipped to the corner. Heymans beat Geordan Murphy to the bouncing ball. By the time the Frenchman stepped into touch, the clock had ticked past 80 minutes.
"We had a very good first half," Clerc said. "We were timid in the second half. We're half satisfied."
COMMENTARY: WHEN WOMEN RULE (Nicholas D. Kristof)
In one common experiment, the "Goldberg paradigm," people are asked to evaluate a particular article or speech, supposedly by a man.Others are asked to evaluate the identical presentation, but from a woman. Typically, in countries all over the world, the very same words are rated higher coming from a man.In particular, one lesson from this research is that promoting their own successes is a helpful strategy for ambitious men. But experiments have demonstrated that when women highlight their accomplishments, that's a turn-off. And women seem even more offended by self-promoting females than men are.This creates a huge challenge for ambitious women in politics or business: If they're self-effacing, people find them unimpressive, but if they talk up their accomplishments, they come across as pushy braggarts.
