Astronauts on the space shuttle Discovery are expected to make three spacewalks to repair the blinded Hubble Space Telescope's damaged gyroscopes and install other upgrades.

Some people will do anything to avoid going to the dealer for repairs.

The State Department has issued a new global travel advisory for Americans who travel overseas over the New Year holiday saying that large groups of people assembled for religious festivals may be especially at risk.

The State Department also added that large groups of non-religious people should be safe during the New Year holiday. They'll just burn in hell for all eternity.

Orlando Brown, an offensive lineman for the 2-13 Cleveland Browns, was inadvertently hit in the eye by a referee's flag in Sunday's game. Afterwards, Brown knocked the referee who threw the flag to the ground with a two-handed shove to the chest.

Cleveland coach Chris Palmer was so impressed with the ferocity of Brown's shove that he's having his assistant coaches toss referee flags in the faces of the players all this week during practice.

Supermodel Christie Brinkley is leading a fight against a plan to store more radioactive fuel rods at a nuclear power plant near her Long Island home. “Imagine being told there's a radioactive plume heading your way and you have one hour to get off Long Island. It's impossible,” said Brinkley.

Brinkley said that it would take her at least two hours to get out the door on short notice, after she'd done her hair and makeup.

On Tuesday, the United States ceremonially turned over the Panama Canal to Panama. Among the U.S. representatives present at the ceremony was former President Jimmy Carter, who signed the 1977 agreement turning the waterway over to Panama.

It was President Carter's brother, Billy, who actually negotiated the transfer of the canal, agreeing to give up control to Panama for two cases of beer.

Marking the old Jewish tradition that says a man's life begins again at 70, Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas, gathered with family and friends to reaffirm his Jewish faith with a second bar mitzvah on his 83rd birthday.

It was a considerably more joyous occasion than was his second circumcision.

Mexican-born rock star Carlos Santana recently said he had spoken to the country's most revered religious figure — the Virgin of Guadalupe — while praying. 

To the delight of NASA he also said that he had received a signal from the Mars Polar Lander while vacuuming.

On December 17, the four members of the Spice Girls will become the first band since The Beatles to be modeled by London's Madame Tussaud's waxworks.

In fact, Madame Tussaud's is just going to reuse the wax Beatles figures by putting new wigs and clothes on them. Ringo is going to be "Baby Spice".

Beatle legend Paul McCartney is going to play at Liverpool's Cavern Club for the first time since 1963. Just 150 fans will be able to fit into the cramped club for the gig on December 14.

Back in 1963 about 300 fans could fit into the club, but those screaming teenage fans have put on a lot of weight since then.

George Michael's new album “Songs from the last century” has already achieved double platinum status — and that's before it is even been released.

That's significantly better than his last album, "Songs from the Public Bathroom Stall," fared.

Federal law enforcement officials are trying to convince a Federal Judge in New Jersey, to give the government control over the International Boxing Federation (IBF) because the boxing federation's top executives are under indictment on bribery and racketeering charges.

If this happens then big time political donors will not only get to stay in the Lincoln Bedroom, but each one will also get a shot at the heavyweight title.

Former Beatle Paul McCartney has said he will never retire.

Then there's still hope that he'll team up with Stevie Wonder for "Ebony & Ivory Part II"!
