    The bill regarding the fight against violence in football courts was submitted today in Parliament. According to the bill, the athletic organizations are held responsible for the control of their funs. Fun associations recognized by the Greek government are being abolished. In addition special arrangements regarding horse racing, the General Secretary of Athletics and the Greek anti-doping council (Eskan) are also included in the bill.

    PASOK civil representative on issues of athletics, Mrs. Sofia Sakorafa said that the bill does not include any arrangements on the critical issue of doping while the opposition party expected from the government to handle this serious issue that injures the athletic spirit and society with more parliamentary and political earnestness. "We are watching the developments and we are waiting for the direct explanations of the competent ministers", she concluded.

    Haiti was hit by tropical storm Hanna. The city is flooded and there are parts where the water gets to 2 meters. The storm killed at least 10 people in the Haitian city of Gonaives. The situation became hopeless when part of the local hospital flooded. The passage last week of Hurricane Gustav left at least 76 people dead in Haiti while Tropical Storm Fay in August killed more than 50.

    Oil prices dropped more than $6.50 per barrel on Tuesday, as dealers bet the U.S. oil industry would recovery quickly from Hurricane Gustav. U.S. crude fell $6.60 to $108.86 a barrel by 1630 GMT, bringing prices down nearly $40 from the peak in mid-July amid accumulating concerns over slowing global energy demand. London Brent fell $1.70 to $107.71. The International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Tuesday there was no need to release strategic oil stocks after Hurricane Gustav as damages appeared limited.

    The search giant said Chrome had been created to better handle interactive applications and resource-hungry web pages such as video clips and online games. It is also less likely to crash, it claimed. This browser will run todays complex web applications much better. By keeping each tab in an isolated "sandbox", we were able to prevent one tab from crashing another and provide improved protection from rogue sites. We improved speed and responsiveness across the board. We also built a more powerful JavaScript engine, V8, to power the next generation of web applications that arent even possible in todays browsers.
