Update November 13th, 2010: This post continues to be one of the most visited posts at RRW. I have just now updated the numbers for FY 2010 below which ended on September 30th.
I finally got around to something I've been promising to do for weeks (months!) and that is go over all the records of Somali resettlement numbers.
I do want to remind readers that these numbers are only for the Refugee Resettlement Program of the US State Department.
In the latest episode of divorce celebrity style: Katie Holmes who returned to the small screen in The Kennedys and Tom Cruise who is starring in a broadway show about metal heads are calling it quits after a lavish wedding and a daughter named Suri.
The divorce episode of these two where millions are involved is probably pretty much settled if they had a prenuptial agreement.
Heloise recently wrote a review of the book “Inside Scientology” where Tom, and by default Katie loomed large on that creepy scene. I am sure Katie won’t need to go begging with her split with Tom. Rumors of Tom gayness and cultness probably doomed this marriage before the lavish Italian nupitals. What a waste.

Even though The Joker isn’t making a showing in the July 20 release of The Dark Knight Rises, you can still drop $274.99 on a new Hot Toys sixth scale Heath Ledger lookalike figure, the Joker 2.0, from The Dark Knight.
Hot Toys, boasting about the “overwhelming reception” of the original Joker toy, decided to spruce up the late Ledger by turning the Joker 2.0 into a one-foot-tall highly detailed version — including 35 “points of articulation” on the hand-painted sculpted toy — in plenty of time to soak in the expected success of the upcoming film.
The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld President Obama's health reform law, affirming the centerpiece of the sweeping 2010 overhaul of the nation's medical industries in a landmark 5-4 vote. The deciding opinion, written by conservative Chief Justice John Roberts, held that the requirement that almost all Americans buy health insurance starting in 2014 or pay a penalty, does not violate the Constitution.
A Fortune investigation reveals that the ATF never intentionally allowed guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. How the world came to believe just the opposite is a tale of rivalry, murder, and political bloodlust.
FORTUNE -- In the annals of impossible assignments, Dave Voth’s ranked high. In 2009 the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives promoted Voth to lead Phoenix Group VII, one of seven new ATF groups along the Southwest border tasked with stopping guns from being trafficked into Mexico’s vicious drug war.
With Windows Phone 8, Microsoft will redo the plumbing of its mobile operating system to allow more diverse hardware and easier app development.
At last, Windows Phone will support multi-core processors, HD screen resolutions and microSD cards for hardware makers, and will add native code support and other goodies for app development. The goal, as always, will be to elevate Windows Phone from underdog status against iOS and Android.
Pare away the tough economic talk and the requisite condemnations of President Obama, and Mitt Romney's Thursday address at a conference of Latino elected officials in Orlando was a softer moment for a candidate who spent much of the past two presidential-election cycles savaging his primary opponents on immigration.
As anybody with a gym ID mouldering in their wallet, purse or glove compartment can tell you, there are a lot of obstacles to going to the gym regularly. There's just not enough time in the day. Gyms are just too expensive. There's that Real Housewives marathon on Bravo. And then there's one of the hardest reasons to admit: what if your gym just has too many skinny, healthy people in it?
He was found dead today. The beating in 1992 no doubt shortened hislife.
On November 8, 1960, John F. Kennedy was elected president of the United States, defeating Richard Nixon in one of the closest national elections of the 20th century. At 43, Kennedy was (and remains) the youngest person elected to the office, and it was largely this quality in the man and his family — an engaging, youthful dynamism — that so captured the imagination of millions across the country and, ultimately, across the world.
