Peruvian government forces routinely rape and torture women with total impunity, while both soldiers and left-wing rebels often kill women, a leading human rights group said. Both sides in the 13-year-old conflict, in which more than 20,000 people have been killed, use violence against civilian women "as a form of tactical warfare," the Washington-based Americas Watch said.

When Michigan defeated Stanford, 49-0, in the first New Year's Day football game played in Pasadena in 1902, it didn't impress Lon F. Chapin, editor of the Pasadena Daily News.

My back is killing me and my arms ache as once more I bend over the clump of weeds around the calendulas. With the stubby hoe bought at a garage sale, I yank at the long tendrils about to overtake the hill that is my backyard. As I pause to straighten my sore back, I think of my uncles (now dead) who in the 1940s left Mexico to work as braceros and were forced by growers to use el cortito--as they called the short hoe--and how they too must have hurt.

Jeff Ware tossed a six-hitter at the Dominican Republic as the United States won the first game it has played in the Games with a 6-1 victory. With the middle of the batting order in a slump, No. 6 hitter Craig Wilson led the bottom of the lineup that combined for eight runs and four runs batted in. The U.S. hit display, however, wasn't anything like Cuba's powerful performance, who continued its long-ball show with four home runs, including two grand slams, to rout Mexico, 22-0.

Forget bonding, though. What she really wants is to dump a cup of punch in the gray sand and watch it turn into a purple blob. Her pale Canadian mother, slathered in sun block, keeps a watchful eye on her 3 1/2-year-old, trying to ward off a big mess.
