Technical Difficulties With Automated Blog Posts

[20100131] The blog is still refusing mail from gmail. I've stopped the forwarders. When the mail server stops trying to deliver mail (probably by the 5th). I'll try another strategy.
I'm trying to find the equilibrium between Google News Alerts, Gmail and Blogger to permit automated posting of Google News Alerts to the blog so I can have them for reference and work on other things. My goal is not to focus on one news topic, but to have the varied topics in the news feeds automatically posted in the blog daily or weekly because I can capture more unique data that way.

Tomorrow's annual ritual at Nongoma involving the killing of a bull - will go ahead as planned.

East Coast Radio Mobile
That's the ruling that's just been handed down in the Pietermaritzburg High Court. Judge Nic Van der Reyden has dismissed, with costs, an application by Animal Rights Africa to stop the killing of a bull during the First Fruits Festival. The controversial animal sacrifice - scheduled to take place at King Goodwill Zwelithini's home - was being opposed by the group as it felt that the method used to kill the bull was cruel.
But Van der Reyden said he was satisfied with the evidence of a cultural expert that the ARA's objection to the ritual was based on untrue information and hearsay. ARA's Steve Smit says they're disappointed by the ruling and will decide what course of action to take once they've studied it fully. "We still stand by our position on the issue of cruelty to the animal and the fact that it should not be tolerated within our society. And we will look at our options now and will discuss it with our council. The process goes ahead in whichever way it has been going ahead -and it's just very sad for the bull. At this point in time our concern lies with the bull more than anything else."
