((The order came from the Secretary of Defense: make the American strike
force in the Persian Gulf even stronger.
It means another 130 or so combat and support aircraft...bringing the
total number of military planes in the Gulf up to approximately 300.
And, among other things, it means sending in an additional 35-hundred
U.S. troops...to back up the 15-hundred already on the ground in Kuwait.
The President took advantage of the somber setting of Veterans Day to
send a focused warning to Baghdad: let the United Nations weapons
inspectors do their job.
CLINTON: WE CONTINUE TO HOPE, INDEED PRAY, THAT SADDAM WILL
COMPLY. BUT WE MUST BE PREPARED TO ACT IF HE DOES NOT.
The U-N arms inspection regime was set up as part of the deal that ended
the Gulf War. U-N teams are trying to make sure that Iraq is not
developing weapons of mass destruction...including biological, chemical,
and nuclear threats.
Fearing a U-S strike, the U-N pulled all of its non-essential personnel
out of Iraq. But the head of the U-N inspection effort said if Baghdad

A new device is helping doctors identify high risk heart patients earlier than ever before.
Researchers say the Heart Scan can see a heart attack coming ahead of time, even in patients who show no symptoms of coronary disease.
In just seconds the machine gives doctors 30 cross section views of the heart, making it easy to spot calcium build up in the arteries.
This means people at higher risk for heart disease can be diagnosed and treated much earlier.

(((Nat sound open of Press working)
Over the past 20 years technology and experience have changed the way things are done at Emerson Creek Pottery, but the attention to detail by the people who work there has remained the same.
In the pouring room molds must be dumped at the right moment to insure the walls of the cast are the proper thickness. The cast finishers must be careful not to scrape away too much of the seams or alter the shape of the item. While it may look hap hazard, the glazers have to know how long to keep the cast held under and just how much glaze the item needs.
(9:10.15- WE ONE TIME COUNTED...ON THE TRUCK 9:20 (8))
17 people who all do their work by feel and experience. A type of expertise that is perhaps best demonstrated in the decorating room where everything is done by memory.
(10:08.8- THEY GO THROUGH A NUMBER OF PIECES...ON THE PIECES 10:19.24 (11))
Each artist knows between 12 and 17 different patterns and can adapt the design proportionately based on the size and shape of the item.
(39:35.3- THERE'S SOME THAT...MORE INTRICATE 39:46.19 (11))
While there is a lot of artistic ability in the room, make no mistake, this is all hard core business. Each item is designed to make it profitable, with production times calculated down to each stroke of the brush.
(11:23.09- I ACTUALLY WORK WITH A...CUT OFF POINT FOR SELLING IT. 11:31.21 (8))
The growth of Emerson Creek from a few folks throwing clay to a 25 thousand square foot factory hasn't changed Palmers love for pottery. She says the business woman side of her will never replace the artist inside of her.
