It's something Kosovars have been waiting for, for months.
Late this afternoon, Yugoslav and NATO generals signed an agreement for a Serb pullout from Kosovo.
It spells out how Yugoslav forces will achieve military compliance with NATO conditions.
If Serb forces comply it will mean an end to the air campaign- perhaps in a matter of hours.

Researchers say men who drank two to three cups a day had a 40-percent lower risk of gallstones than those who didn't drink caffinated coffee. Men who drank four or more cups a day had a 45 percent lower risk. A researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health says coffee may stimulate gallbladder contraction. And he says it may lower cholesterol that can form gallstones. The researcher says this is no reason to start drinking coffee. But he says it may be good news to people who drink it already. The study is in The Journal of the American Medical Association.

Information from medical journals may soon be easier to access. But posting medical research on the Internet is causing controversy. Those in favor say going online would speed up the exchange of information between scientists. They'd also be able to see more photos, tables and data than could ever fit in a magazine. But, the editor of the New England Journal of Medicine says using the Internet would weaken and possibly even destroy medical journals.
