Ariel is said to be one of the luckiest dogs in Australia, traveling in a Louis Vuitton carrier bag and wearing only Gucci collars. Aside from the Maltese terrier cross's $500 Italian dog collars, most of his clothes, accessories and toiletries are bought overseas, The (Melbourne) Herald Sun reported Saturday. They hardly have any nice clothes here. You can get practical clothes but not fashionable ones, said owner Winnie Ng of Victoria. The newspaper said Ariel gets spoon-fed, drinks mineral...

By Jeff Vice Deseret News According to an old adage, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. However, "sincerity" doesn't explain why other studios have tried to "flatter" the Walt Disney Co. so many times by imitating the look and style of the studio's most successful animated features. And simply copying the Mouse House's formula isn't as easy as it may sound. It takes memorable stories, first-class animation and top- notch voice talent. You have to make sure that your film...

This series of images from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope shows how the ring system around the distant planet Uranus appears at ever more oblique (shallower) tilts as viewed from Earth - culminating in the rings being seen edge-on in three observing opportunities in 2007. The best of these events appears in the far right image taken with Hubble's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 on August 14, 2007. The edge-on rings appear as two spikes above and below the planet. The rings cannot be seen...

In a paper presented at the National Astronomy Meeting in Preston from 16 - 20 April, Dr Stuart Eves of Surrey Satellite Technology Limited will challenge the orthodox view that the rings around the planet Uranus were first detected during an occultation experiment in 1977. Remarkably, a paper presented to the Royal Society in December 1797 by the then King's Astronomer, Sir William Herschel, (who had discovered Uranus in 1781), includes a description of a possible ring around the planet. Dr...

This image is a never-before-seen astronomical alignment of a moon traversing the face of Uranus, and its accompanying shadow. The white dot near the center of Uranus' blue-green disk is the icy moon Ariel. The 700-mile-diameter satellite is casting a shadow onto the cloud tops of Uranus. To an observer on Uranus, this would appear as a solar eclipse, where the moon briefly blocks out the Sun as its shadow races across Uranus's cloud tops. Though such "transits" by moons across the disks of...

By Dan Williams ARIEL, West Bank (Reuters) - Interim Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert vowed on Tuesday never to give up a major Jewish settlement in the heart of the occupied West Bank, a move that might help blunt rightist ire ahead of March 28 elections. Olmert said settlers forced to leave isolated West Bank enclaves under his plan to impose Israel's final borders by 2010 would be moved to Ariel and its environs or other major blocs the Jewish state intends to keep....

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Israeli court sentenced Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's son to nine months' imprisonment on Tuesday in a campaign funding scandal. But Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court delayed the start of Omri Sharon's jail term for six months, saying it was taking into account the condition of his father, who has been comatose since a January 4 stroke.
