ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER ARIEL SHARON, BLAMED ARAFAT FOR, WHAT HE CALLED, A "WAR ON TERROR" AND SAID THE PALESTINIAN LEADER IS DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ATTACKS. THE U-S IS ALSO PUTTING INCREASED PRESSURE ON ARAFAT WHO WAS NOT AT HIS HEADQUARTERS DURING THE AIRSTRIKES TO END THE VIOLENCE AND BREAK UP GROUPS LIKE HAMAS AND THE ISLAMIC JIHAD. AND THIS TIME, THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION DID NOT CONDEMN ISRAELS ATTACKS.
Ari Fleischer/White House Spokesman: Israel has a right to defend herself. PALESTINIAN SECURITY FORCES HAVE ROUNDED UP MORE THAN 100-MILITANTS ACROSS THE WEST BANK AND GAZA BUT MANY PALESTINIANS SUPPORT THE WEEKEND ATTACKS THAT KILLED 25 ISRAELIS AND INJURED HUNDREDS MORE. THEY BELIEVE ITS SHARON WHO WANTS TO DESTROY THE PEACE PROCESS AND THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY.
Abdel Rahman/Palestinian Cabinet Secretary: This is an aggression against our people, against our civilians, against our authority. For how long will the Palestinians be waiting the international community to intervene. Teri Okita/Reporting: Any plans that the US had for pushing the Mid-East peace process along have been dashed with this latest round of violence making the anti-terrorism campaign and the situation in Afghanistan even more fragile.

(( Here "IT" is. What is "IT?"...well until "IT" was unveiled in New York it was the codename for the Segway Human Transporter.....a nifty two-wheeled battery-powered device that takes you from here to there.
At an average speed of eight miles an hour and a top speed of 17 miles an hour-- inventor Dean Kamen says this is just what America needs.

(SOT DEAN KAMEN/INVENTOR )


"IT IS THE MISSING LINK BETWEEN YOUR SNEAKERS AND BIG VEHICLES."

(COURTESY: SEGWAY LLC)


To hype the Human transporter--Kamen provided this video of him and his engineers fine-tuning the invention at their New Hampshire headquarters. It weighs 80 pounds--can go up to 15 miles without recharging the batteries and looks like a cross between an old rotary lawn mower and a Razor scooter.

(NATSOUND OF WOMAN ON HUMAN TRANSPORTER)


"OH MY GOSH, THIS IS SO EASY "
Using computers, sensers and gyros Kamen says it works basically as an extension of the rider.

(SOT Dean Kamen/Inventor.)

"WE PUT ABOUT FIVE GYROS IN THERE THAT ACT LIKE YOUR INNER EAR, THEY SENSE WHAT THE MACHINE IS DOING, SO IF I WANT TO GO FORWARD I THINK FORWARD, IF I WANT TO GO BACKWARDS I THINK BACKWARDS."
The inventor feels his invention will help increase productivity in warehouses and he says its perfect for delivery companies. The National parks service plans to test them--and the US Postal Service is going to try them out in New Hampshire and Florida. At a cost of eight-thousand dollars--it's pricey...but a smaller--less expensive consumer model is on the drawing board.
