Strikes in France Disturb Air and Ground Transportation

Outrage over strikes by workers at France's 12 refineries and blockades at some of the country's 200 fuel depots. After fuel production halted, the French railway authority said only half of the country's high-speed trains would run today. Authorities have begun to draw on France's 30-day strategic fuel reserves, according to the Paris-based International Energy Agency. Fearing the strong possibility that transport disruption on the rail network and highways will spread to the skies, the French civil aviation authority is asking airlines to cut flights into French airports by up to 50 percent on Tuesday. A spokeswoman for Exxon Mobil told Reuters: "The situation is critical."

Obama on Discovery Channel

President Obamais appearing on the December 8th episode of MythBusters, a popular television show on the Discovery Channel which uses science to determine the truth behind urban legends. His mission is to help determine whether the Greek scientist Archimedes really set fire to an invading Roman fleet using only mirrors and the reflected rays of the sun. As the first president to appear on the show, he hopes to spur interest in math and science. Obama makes the announcement tonight at the White House Science Fair, a part of his Educate to Innovate campaign to help American students excel in these subjects.
