SOUNDBITE (English) Amr Moussa, Arab League Secretary-General: "Yes he walked out because he was not given the full time to answer, and we also wanted him to answer because what Mr. Peres said was first unacceptable, second, many of the points were not really accurate and we wanted to say something. So the Prime Minister of Turkey was not given that opportunity. He is after all the Prime Minister of Turkey and he wants to speak." (Question: And he was in his right to walk out and make a point?) "This is a different story. He is angry and I believe we are going to see him now." 13. Cutaway delegates ++MUTE++ STORYLINE Turkey's prime minister stalked off the stage at the World Economic Forum on Thursday after reproaching Israel's president over the devastating military offensive in Gaza. The packed audience, which included President Barack Obama's close adviser Valerie Jarrett, appeared stunned as Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Israeli President Shimon Peres raised their voices and traded accusations. Peres was passionate in his defence of Israel's 23-day offensive in Gaza, which it said targeted Gaza-rulers Hamas and aimed to stop Palestinian militant rocket fire into southern Israeli towns. As he spoke, Peres often turned toward Erdogan, who in his remarks had criticised Israel's strict blockade of the Gaza Strip. "Why did they fire rockets? There was no siege against Gaza," Peres said, raising his voice. The heated debate with Israel and Turkey at the centre was significant because of the key role Turkey has played as a moderator between Israel and Syria. Erdogan appeared to express a sense of disappointment when he recounted how he had met with the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert just days before the offensive, and believed they were close to reaching terms for a face-to-face meeting with Syrian leaders. Obama's new Mideast envoy, George Mitchell, will be in Turkey for talks on Sunday. Erdogan was angry when a panel moderator cut off his remarks in response to an impassioned monologue by Peres defending Israel's offensive. The angry exchange followed an hour-long debate at the forum attended by world leaders in Davos. Erdogan tried to rebut Peres as the discussion was ending, asking the moderator, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, to let him speak once more. "You killed people," Erdogan told the 85-year-old Israeli leader. "I remember the children who died on beaches." When moderator repeatedly interrupted, asking him to stop, Erdogan angrily stalked off, leaving behind fellow panelists United Nations Secretary-General Ban-Ki Moon and Arab League Secretary-General, Amr Moussa.

President Bush reacts to Obama's victory in 2008 election
SHOTLIST 1. US President George W. Bush walks to podium 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President: "Good morning. Last night I had a warm conversation with president-elect Barack Obama. I congratulated him and Senator Biden on their impressive victory. I told the president-elect he could count on complete cooperation from my administration as he makes the transition to the White House. I also spoke to Senator John McCain. I congratulated him on a determined campaign that he and Governor Palin ran. The American people will always be grateful for the lifetime of service John McCain has devoted to this nation, and I know he will continue to make tremendous contributions to our country. No matter how they cast their ballots, all Americans can be proud of the history that was made yesterday. Across the country citizens voted in large numbers. They showed a watching world the vitality of American democracy and the stride we have made toward a more perfect union. They chose a president whose journey represents a triumph of the American story. A testament to hard work, optimism and faith in the enduring promise of our nation. Many of our citizens thought they would never live to see that day. This moment is especially uplifting for a generation of Americans who witnessed the struggles of civil rights with their own eyes; four decades later, see a dream fulfilled. A long campaign is ended and we move forward as a nation. Embarking on a period of change in Washington, yet there are some things that will not change. The United States government will remain vigilant in meeting its most important responsibility: protecting the American people. And the world can be certain this commitment will remain steadfast under our next commander in chief. There is important work to do in the months ahead and I will continue to conduct the people's business as long as this office remains in my trust. During this time of transition I will keep the president-elect fully informed on important decisions. When the time comes on January 20 Laura and I will return home to Texas with treasured memories of our time here, with profound gratitude for the honour of serving this amazing country. It will be a stirring sight to watch President Obama, his wife, Michelle, and their beautiful girls step through the doors of the White House. I know millions of Americans will be overcome with pride at this inspiring moment that so many have waited so long. I know Senator Obama's beloved mother and grandparents would have been thrilled to watch the child they raised ascend the steps of the Capitol and take his oath to uphold the constitution of the greatest nation on the face of the earth. Last night I extended an invitation to the president-elect and Mrs Obama to come to the White House and Laura and I are looking forward to welcoming them as soon as possible. Thank you very much." 3. Bush walks away STORYLINE: US President George W. Bush fully embraced the election of Democrat Barack Obama as his successor on Wednesday, paying stirring tribute to the election of the first U.S. black president-elect and hailing the campaign of change that led Obama to victory. Bush promised Obama his "complete cooperation" during the Democrat's 76-day transition to the White House. The president said he would keep Obama informed on all his decisions between now and January 20, and said he looked forward to the day - soon, he hopes - that Obama and his family would take him up on his offer of pre-inauguration White House visit. The defeated leader of his own party, John McCain, won accolades not nearly so glowing with Bush hailing his lifetime of service to the US.

Japan - New discoveries in paper folding
T/I: 10:24:08 Anything made out of paper is generally thought to be structurally weak, but with skilful folding, paper can gain unexpected strength. The Japanese art of origami, or paper folding, has long been admired for its ingenuity, but this traditional pastime is now providing the basis for the foundation of a new technology. Two years ago, Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki, a teacher in mechanical engineering at Saitama University, and his students began conducting research into paper structures. They discovered that long triangular cylinders threaded horizontally through a collection of hexagons produced a strong structure that resisted twisting -- strong enough to hold the weight of a person. A tricycle made entirely out of recycled paper, using joints made from paper cups, was among the objects built to demonstrate the strength of their chosen material. With a fire and water resistant coating, paper could be used in unique ways giving it new options for the years ahead. SHOWS: JAPAN RECENT CU flimsy pieces of paper; Paper being folded into strong structure; Strong paper taking weight of apple; Exterior of Saitama University; Interior shot of researchers in meeting; SOT Professor Hideyuki Ohtaki: "Compared to metals, paper is extremely light-weight and easy to recycle. These advantages create various possibilities for the use of strong paper structures."

English/Nat VOICED BY: Louise Bates With car-jackings increasingly common in South Africa, one inventor has created the ultimate deterrent - a flame-thrower. When it's fitted to the side of a car, the 'blaster' system send out jets of fire to stop any would-be hijackers in their tracks. VOICE-OVER: 0005: The heat is on for South Africa's car thieves. 0007: It looks like a James Bond movie. 0009: But the inventor of the Blaster system, Charles Fourie, believes he's found a way to deal with car-jackers... 0015: SOUNDBITE: (English) "This car is a coded key pad, or just a key switch on the dashboard. When it's turned it'll show that the system is now armed and ready for activation. Underneath here we have a foot switch; the system will function for as long as you keep it down. And just quickly to explain how it works. When this foot switch is pressed, two things happen. One, a 14-thousand volt spark would appear here in this nozzle, and then you have these four jets here shooting out gas. Liquid gas from the gas bottle in the boot. Liquid gas, as soon as it exits over the spark here, will ignite and a ball of flame will shoot out of both side of the vehicle. Incapacitating the hijackers immediately." 0111: Amazingly perhaps, the system's legal in South Africa - provided the driver is acting in self defence as depicted in this mock-up. 0020: About 25 vehicles so far have the Blaster, but no one has yet tested the system for real.

Why do this now?" 4. Close up of US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld 5. SOUNDBITE: (German/ English) German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer: "We owe the Americans our democracy. They are very important for stability and peace especially. We Germans would never have been able to free ourselves from the Nazi regime without America. The Americans allowed us to build up our democracy but in this democracy my generation has learnt... (switches to English) You have to make the case, and to make the case in a democracy you have to be convinced yourself, and excuse me I am not convinced, this is my problem and I cannot go to the public and say, well let's go to war because there are reasons and so on, and I don't believe in that." 6. Mid shot of Fischer at podium looking towards Rumsfeld in audience 7. Wide shot of delegates at security conference STORYLINE: German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer made an impassioned plea for patience with Iraq on Saturday and said the German public sees no justification for going to war. Fischer responded to an earlier pro-war speech by Rumsfeld, stating that diplomatic efforts to secure Iraq's disarmament had not been exhausted and it was premature to start military moves. The Iraq crisis and the divisions it has caused among traditional allies dominated the annual conference in Munich where dozens of ministers and military and defence experts from Europe, North America and Asia have gathered. Fischer told the conference that Germany would not support a "military build up" ahead of the next UN Security Council session on February when chief weapons inspector Hans Blix is due to present a new report. Fischer also said that Germany would respect its commitments to Turkey under the NATO treaty. NATO has to decide by Monday whether to order its military experts to plan for the deployment of early warning planes, missile defence batteries and specialized units to Turkey. France, Germany and Belgium have held up the NATO planning for three weeks, arguing that it could undermine UN efforts to avert a war. Anxious alliance officials fear continued refusal could do permanent damage to NATO.

(18 May 2012) Britain has come under criticism for inviting the king of Bahrain, whose Gulf state has been engaged in a brutal crackdown on political dissent, to a lunch on Friday celebrating Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee. The lunch in Windsor Castle was the largest gathering of foreign royals in Britain since Queen Elizabeth II's grandson, Prince William, was married to Kate Middleton last year. Then, as now, the decision to extend an invitation to members of the Bahraini royal family has angered whose who are upset by the deadly violence deployed against demonstrators since protests erupted in the Gulf state. Bahrain's Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa eventually skipped the royal wedding, saying he didn't want the controversy to tarnish the couple's happy day. But on Friday Buckingham Palace confirmed that his father, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, attended the queen's lunch, along with some 45 other royal guests from around the world. The Foreign Office, which advised Buckingham Palace on the invitations, said that Britain's ties to Bahrain allowed UK officials to talk frankly with the strategic island nation's rulers about "a range of issues including those where we have concerns." Al Khalifa wasn't the only controversial guest dining at Windsor Castle. Swaziland's King Mswati III, who is accused of living in luxury while his people go hungry, also attended the lunch. Other guests included Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands; Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan; the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and Saudi Arabia's Prince Mohammed bin Nawwaf bin Abdulaziz al Saud. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry also attended the lunch. The Diamond Jubilee marks 60 years of Elizabeth's reign as Britain's monarch.

Unseen belongings of legend Marilyn Monroe unveiled ++REPLAY++
(11 May 2012) LEADIN Never-before-seen belongings of the Hollywood legend, Marilyn Monroe, are on display in Los Angeles. The show marks the 50th anniversary of the movie star's death at the age of 36. STORYLINE: One of the world's most iconic actresses, Marilyn Monroe, is the star of a million dollar exhibition of some of her most personal belongings. It's taking place here in Hollywood, 50 years after her premature death. Over 50,000 fans from all over the world are expected to arrive to commemorate the anniversary. This exhibit is housed inside an old bank vault, and the contents inside are valuable - maybe priceless because of their association with Monroe. The Marilyn Bank Vault Collection at Ripley's Believe It Or Not is Hollywood's ultimate homage to Marilyn, remembering an era and commemorating the queen of the town. Among the many Marilyn items are a hand knitted cardigan, currently valued at USD $170,000. She wore this on her last photo shoot. These are all personal items belonging to the owner of the Ripley's company. Andrea Silverman, general manager of Ripley's Believe It Or Not says: "We have her famous sweater which was actually the last photograph that she did before her death. You're gong to see her makeup case. It took her over three hours to do her makeup. You guys have to come see all the cool stuff that we have. We have her shoes. We have her nightgown when she was married to Joe DiMaggio for her honeymoon" Personal items include a dresser top of Marilyn's cosmetics and makeup case. She was rumoured to take three hours to put on her makeup on every morning. An old Revlon nail polish bottle sits next to an Erno Laszlo face cream, lavender smelling salts, and an Elizabeth Arden eyeshadow. This black lingerie was worn by Marilyn for baseball legend Joe DiMaggio on their wedding night. Slippers with glass and white faux fur straps were valued 10 years ago at over USD $100,000. Also on display is a USD $12,000 lace nightcap as well as a bathing suit that was quite scandalous at the time for being a midriff baring two piece, in US size 16. A polka dot dress on show is known as the willpower dress because it took sheer willpower in the 50s to wear a strapless dress. Head scarves on display were worn to shield herself from the paparazzi. Jeanne Wolf, a veteran Hollywood journalist says: "We loved and adored her and still do. There's something about her very strong. You know she came form utter poverty. She should have had absolutely no exceptions in life and rose to be well arguably the most famous movie star in the world. There was something about her, that no one looked like her. No one reminded you of her. She invented herself. She created herself and in the midst of all of that, there was something so utterly exposed and fragile about her." Her dresses on display showcase her well documented size fluctuations. Going from 37-23-34 and a US size two when she began her career to 38-23-36 in 1962 - a US size 12. A larger than life poster shows her famous dress blowing scene from the movie "The Seven Year Itch." There are 40 pairs of shoes on display, including a pair of red Salvatore Ferragamo shoes which he made just for her. There is a copy of Marilyn's footprints in cement that were given personally to Sid Grauman, the owner of the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre. They were made in 1953 on the night of the premiere of the classic film 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'. A lock of her hair as a child sits in a drawer for tourists to get a glimpse of. It is reported she experimented with 10 different blonde shades before deciding on her legendary platinum colour. Wolf says people will like the feeling of being inside the vault to see her things.

Slow Motion sequence of man throwing shoes STORYLINE His legacy forever linked to an unpopular war, President George W. Bush visited Iraq under intense security on Sunday and declared that the long, hard conflict was necessary to protect the United States and give Iraqis hope. But he got a size-10 reminder of the fervent opposition to his policies when a man threw two shoes at him - one after another - during a news conference with Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. This is the end," shouted the man, later identified as Muntadar al-Zeidi, a correspondent for Al-Baghdadiya television, an Iraqi-owned station based in Cairo, Egypt. Bush ducked both throws. Neither leader was hit. In Iraqi culture, throwing shoes at someone is a sign of contempt - Iraqis whacked a statue of Saddam Hussein with their shoes after US Marines toppled it to the ground after the 2003 invasion. "All I can report," Bush joked after the incident, "is a size 10." The US president visited the Iraqi capital just 37 days before he hands the war off to President-elect Barack Obama, who has pledged to end it.

The ceremony took place in front of hundreds of well wishers, including tribal royalty from across the country, most of them clad in brightly coloured traditional dress and beaded headdresses. It was the first time in nearly 70 years that a member of Mandela's family from the Madiba clan took up the mantle of traditional leadership. Dressed in a black and white animal print shirt, he walked with difficulty up the stairs but otherwise looked in good health and in radiant spirits as he delivered a short speech in Xhosa in a firm voice. "That will make me sleep forever being a happy man in my grave knowing that Mandla has taken this chieftaincy that I was supposed to have taken," said Nelson Mandela. Mandla Mandela's father Makgatho, Nelson Mandela's last surviving son, died in 2005 of AIDS-related complications. His mother, Rayne Mandela-Perry, said her late husband would have been proud to see his son carry on the family legacy. Mandla Mandela, who graduated from Rhodes University's political science program last week, now has the power to decide disputes and try certain criminal and civil cases.

Italy: Rome: Funeral Of Actor Marcello Mastroianni - 1996
Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni has been laid to rest in Rome Sunday. In a simple civic ceremony at Rome's Campidoglio (city hall) family members, celebrities and fans remembered their friend and hero - a man whose acting career spanned nearly fifty years. With the song from his movie "eight-and-a-half" playing in the background - friends spoke of their memories of the star. After the ceremony his coffin was taken across Rome and placed in the family vault. Mastroianni died in Paris Thursday from pancreatic cancer aged 72. There was music and applause - perfectly fitting for Italy's acting great Marcello Mastroianni to make his finale. As his coffin was carried into Rome's Campidoglio the huge crowd broke into a thunderous applause - thanks for the man who had entertained them since his cinematic debut in 1947. And in the background - the theme music from his movie "eight-and-a-half". Rome's mayor Francesco Rutelli accompanied Mastroianni's grieving family into the ceremony. His widow Flora Carabella and daughter Barbara took their seats with another of Italy's greatest acting exports - Sofia Loren. Loren and Mastroianni had performed in 12 films together - they had also been close friends. Many of Italy's most renowned actors and directors had come to say their last farewell - including actress Monica Vitti. Mastroianni's long-time seamstress simply summarised his importance in Italian cinema. SOUNDBITE: (Italian) "You will always be in my heart and in the heart of Italian cinema. Thank you for everything." SUPER-CAPTION: Angela Insimani, Mastroianni's seamstress. As the music played and memories of Marcello flooded back - Sofia Loren broke down in tears as she held the hand of his widow Flora. She says they made one of the great cinematic partnerships. SOUNDBITE: (English) "There was a kind of chemistry between us that could not be compared with anybody else, with anyone else. Q/ Do you have a last message for Marcello? "Ciao Marcello, I will never forget you. You will always be in my heart, I know that." SUPER-CAPTION: Sofia Loren, actress. After the ceremony - Mastroianni's body was transported across Rome to the Verrano cemetery where the family vault is. There he will now rest - but always remembered through the 160 films that he starred in. More often than not, he was the quintessential "Latin lover" - most famous for his role in Fellini's film "La Dolce Vita".

Blair goes up to speak 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Tony Blair, British Prime Minister "As Bill has just informed you there have been the most terrible shocking events taking place in the United States of America within the last hour or so including two hijacked planes being flown deliberately into the World Trade Centre. I'm afraid we can only imagine the terror and the carnage there and the many many innocent people that will have lost their lives. I know you will want to join with me in sending the deepest condolences to President Bush and to the American people on behalf of the British people at these terrible events. This mass terrorism is the new evil in our world today. It is perpetrated by fanatics who are utterly indifferent to the sanctity of human life, and we the democracies of this world are going to have to come together to fight it together and eradicate this evil from our world. Delegates, I hope you will understand that I don't believe it would be appropriate to carry on the speech I was going to give you today. I know I have issued copies of the speech, we will make sure that all delegates get copies of the speech, but I think it inappropriate to give that speech here now. I will obviously want to carry on discussions that we've had about the issues that concern us. I will now return to London and once again I thank you for your indulgence here. I'm very very sorry it has turned out the way it has but I know that, as I say, you would want to join with me in offering our deepest sympathy to the American people and our absolute shock and outrage at what has happened." 5. Blair returns to his seat to applause STORYLINE: British Prime Minister Tony Blair has reacted with shock and outrage to the news on Tuesday of attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington. Blair was speaking at the TUC Congress in Brighton where he had been due to address delegates about his plans for public services. But he said in the circumstances it would be inappropriate and instead he was returning to London immediately. Blair sent deepest condolences to President Bush and to the American people on behalf of the British people. And he condemned the new evil of mass terrorism, calling upon world democracies to unite and eradicate it from the world. Two planes crashed into the upper floors of both World Trade Centre towers minutes apart on Tuesday morning in what the President George W. Bush said was an apparent terrorist attack, blasting fiery, gaping holes in the 110-storey buildings. Within the hour, an aircraft crashed on a helicopter landing pad near the Pentagon, and the West Wing of the White House was evacuated amid threats of terrorism.

Russian/Nat There are once again questions about Russian President Boris Yeltsin's health after he swayed and nearly fell over during a military ceremony in Uzbekistan. Another welcome ceremony in which he was due to take part, was cancelled. Talks with Islam Karimov, president of Uzbekistan, were later held behind closed doors at a government residence. Yeltsin's spokesman said the Russian president had had a "difficult flight" and had caught at cold. Yeltsin is on a two day visit to the central Asian republic of Uzbekistan. As so often with the Russian leader, international crises were put on the back burner as doubts about his health took centre stage once more on Sunday. Yeltsin was seen to visibly stumble when he arrived in the Uzbekistan capital, Tashkent. He leant on the arm of President Karimov for support as he crossed the tarmac and later waved to the cameras. But more was to follow. Yeltsin was uncomfortable on his feet as he and Karimov stood side by side while the national anthems were played. An aide dashed closer to the Russian leader when it looked at one point as if he was going to fall over. After the ceremony, Karimov immediately took Yeltsin's arm as they walked away over the tarmac. A wreath laying ceremony at a monument to a national hero of Uzbekistan was cancelled. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Yakushkin said the Russian president was suffering from a cold after having been through a tough working week. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) "I have to say I have spent the whole week with Boris Nikolayevich (Yeltsin). He has had a very busy working week, and that is why I am holding this briefing. Some of you were present at these meetings. It was a hard flight and not an easy end to his working week. I have to say he has a cold. SUPER CAPTION: Dmitry Yakushkin, Kremlin spokesman The 67-year-old president, who had a quintuple heart bypass, is facing an economic crisis and labour unrest at home while on the international front the crisis in Kosovo poses a serious challenge to Russia's international relations.

South Africa-Mandela and Nyerere news conference
T/I 10:19:00 South Africa is willing to assist a peacekeeping force in eastern Zaire once leaders in the Great Lakes region agree on what they want, President Nelson Mandela said on Saturday (9/11). Mandela was speaking to reporters after being briefed on the situation in eastern Zaire by former Tanzanian president Julius Nyerere, who has taken on the role of central African peace-broker. SHOWS: JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, 09/11 WS house; WS South African President Nelson Mandela and former Tanzanian president Julius Nyerere address news conference SOT Mandela: "We do understand the important role which South Africa is likely to play in an initiative of this nature and we want to be part of Africa not only geographically and politically but as part of our commitment and I am waiting for specific information from my leader here and as soon as we get it we'll be able to announce it here"'; C/A press; SOT Nyerere: "The whole of this exercise is an African exercise, this is an African problem. Obviously we don't have all the means otherwise we would not go outside Africa. We don't have all the means but nevertheless it is an African problem and clearly though the countries of the regions are the ones who have met for this problem, we can't envisage an African force seeking assistance from the outside world, we can't envisage a force that does not have South Africa"'; C/A press; SOT Mandela: "The supply of arms to Rwanda was influenced by humanitarian considerations that people who were unarmed are going to be victims of that party outside the border which is being trained and prepared to go back and commit those massacres.

Nat Sot Embattled goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar has taken his place in his country's team for the African Cup of Nations. It's his first major game since the allegations that he deliberately threw matches for bribes. He's playing for his home country of Zimbabwe, against Zaire. All eyes were on goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar when he ran out for his country in Harare Football fans in his home country of Zimbabwe were delighted to see their hero in his national kit. He was cleared on Saturday by the world football authority FIFA to play. FIFA came to the decision after examining a preliminary report by the English Football Association. The English tabloid newspaper "The Sun" alleged last week that Grobbelaar had taken bribes to fix matches, both for his former club - Liverpool - and for Southampton, the team he currently plays for. Earlier, FIFA had said it could ban the goalie if the F-A's report was damning. Since he arrived in Zimbabwe Grobbelaar has denied the allegations. And he added that they'd be unlikely to unsettle his game. There was a party atmosphere at the national sports stadium, with cheerleaders and a band. Some of the crowd chanted "Up with Bruce, down with Sun. The only pressure from fans in Harare is to stop any goals from Zaire and help Zimbabwe through to the next round of the African Cup of Nations. And in soaring temperatures, it was clearly thirsty work.

English/Nat British and Dutch scientists using a giant magnetic field have made a frog float in mid- air, and might even be able to do the same thing with a human being. The team from Britain's University of Nottingham and the University of Nijmegen in the Netherlands has also succeeded in levitating plants, grasshoppers and fish. Scientists at the University of Nijmegen in Holland have managed to make a frog float six feet (approximately two metres) in the air - and they say the trick could easily be repeated with a human. The secret is not magic but a powerful magnetic field which overcomes the force of gravity. The field makes the frog's atoms generate a weak magnetic force in the opposite direction. This causes it to be repelled in the same way as like poles of two magnets. Plants, grasshoppers and fish have been levitated by the research team in the same way. NASA, apparently, is extremely interested in the experiment in order to be able to test the effects of weightlessness on astronauts without having to put them into space. Easy, says team leader Dr Andre Geim. SOUNDBITE: (English) There is no problem with putting a man by this magnetic levitation, to fly in the air. Technically we can do it with you without any problems. SUPER CAPTION: Dr Andre Geim, Director of the High Field Magnetic Laboratory of the Catholic University of Nijmegen And for those worried about the effects on the frog - don't worry. He's not hopping mad - quite the opposite, in fact.

Los Angeles, USA, 12 October 1999 The Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been awarded to an Egyptian-American for his pioneering work with lasers. Scientist, Ahmed Zewail has shown that a rapid-firing laser can observe the motion of atoms in a molecule, during chemical reactions. The Nobel Prize is the latest in a series of plaudits offered to Zewail and his colleagues at the California Institute of Technology for work in this field. It was congratulations all round when Ahmed Zewail arrived at work on Tuesday morning The 53-year-old scientist had just found out that he had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry for his work capturing ultrafast snapshots of atomic reactions. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Well in the excited state as they say, I feel well, very, very well. (Q) Did you expect it? You can never expect a Nobel Prize, nobody ever expects a Nobel Prize. People tell you that you can get it but you never expect a Nobel Prize so it was very thrilling to get the call at 5.30 this morning. (Q) What happened with the telephone call? Well the Royal Swedish Academy, the secretary-general called and he said 'I'm sorry to wake you up and I have some good news' and then he told me about the award and the significance and so on. (Q) How did you feel when you got off the phone? Did you jump in the air? I went and kissed my wife and kissed my children and she made a cup of coffee and the phone did not stop until now. It just did not stop." SUPER CAPTION: Ahmed Zewail, Nobel Laureate Colleagues who work with Zewail are elated at the award and say he's a deserving recipient. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Yeah I was excited, I woke up at six and went and turned on the computer and went on-line and there he was, Ahmed Zewail, it was unbelievable. I'm really excited, I'm so happy and I'm one hundred percent sure he deserves it, it's great." SUPER CAPTION: SOUNDBITE: (English) "He did some very good experiments in the late 80s and he's the founder of the field. Now there's hundreds of groups all over the world doing the same thing and I think many people didn't believe it was possible but he showed it was and now it's a standard thing, text-books, conferences, everywhere." SUPER CAPTION: Zewails' development known as femtochemistry, uses ultra-fast lasers to measure the movement of atoms during chemical reactions. His ground-breaking research has helped explain the way the human eye adjusts to the dark and the way plants convert light to food in photosynthesis. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Until the work at CalTech you could not really see them in real time, you could not see the motion of the atoms." SUPER CAPTION: Ahmed Zewail, Nobel Laureate Zewail grew up in Egypt and got his first science degree from Alexandria University in 1967. From there he went to the United States, where he earned a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. He then performed research at the University of California in Berkeley and was appointed to CalTech's faculty in 1976. Zewail and his team have been showered with honours over the years, the Nobel prize is the latest.

English/Nat At an emotional news conference the prosecution team in the OJ Simpson trial shared their deep disappointment at the verdict with Ronald Goldman's family. There were tears on all sides as both prosecution and family gave their opinion of the "Not Guilty" verdict. And one prosecutor, Christopher Darden, actually had to leave, he was so overcome with emotion. It was a sombre press conference presided over by the District Attorney Gil Garcetti. Garcetti voiced the prosecution's deep regret at the "Not Guilty " verdict for OJ Simpson. SOUNDBITE: I think you probably have more people who are profoundly disappointed with the result.

SUPER CAPTION: Goldman Never one to be lost for words during the trial, Goldman struggled to express his profound grief. SOUNDBITE: To my wife Betty, my daughter Kim, Michael and Lauren and Bran, my other kids. To all of our deep close friends who have been there for us, for this year and the four months, or five or whatever it's been; who have helped us daily get through each day, we'll never be able to say thank you enough.

Bosnian Muslims help keep Balkan Ramadan traditions alive
It's one of the busiest times of year for Sarajevo's bakers, preparing the city's favourite food - a yeasty bread known as somun - to break a long day of fasting. While somun is baked all year round, there's one special ingredient added just for Ramadan. Cumin seeds are sprinkled on top and when they are baked in a wood burning oven they release an aromatic smell. The owner of Vrbanjusa bakery in Sarajevo Jasmin Aljovic explains: "It is specific for Ramadan that we put black cumin seeds on somun. We do it for the smell; it is the traditional smell of Ramadan that permeates most of the city." As dusk approaches, queues form in front of the city's many bakeries. People prefer to get their somun bread for iftar while it is still hot from the oven. In Sarajevo, an old fortress overlooking the city has become a favourite iftar destination. Large crowds, including tourists and non-muslims, gather there to watch Smajo Krivic shoot a firework rocket from a cannon-like launcher to signal the end of fasting. Nearly two decades ago, Krivic and a group of friends reinitiated the cannon tradition which had been established during more than four centuries of Ottoman rule in Bosnia from the 15th to the 19th century. Krivic says: "During the communist rule after World War II, the (cannon firing) tradition had been banned," "But now, after the latest unfortunate war (between 1992 and 1995), myself and a group of my friends wanted to re-launch it and we succeeded in that," he says. Krivic consults his watch before firing the cannon into the sky. Soon after, Sarajevo's many minarets light up and the call to prayer starts echoing through the city. Many young Muslims like to break their fast with friends on top of the fortress, replacing traditional meals with a simple slice of pizza. For those who stay home or go to restaurants, the fast is typically broken by dates and strong sugary lemonade. It is then followed by small servings of traditional Bosnian meals such as onions or stuffed peppers and soups and stews. All meals are accompanied by somun.

Police officer lifting weights 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Bheki Cele, National Police Commissioner "Fit cop because you are not going to be only fit physically, your mind is going to be very fit and that makes our officers much sharper. That''s why I want to warn all thugs and criminals: they shouldn''t say that they''ve not been warned." 8. Police officers working out in the gym 9. Wide shot, official launch of the new police fitness programme, with Cele handing out instruction booklets to regional police commissioners 10. Officer with copy of instruction booklet 11. Various, Cele hading out booklets 12. Various, police officers doing exercises STORYLINE: South African police officers are being strongly encouraged to get fit in order to boost their crime-fighting capabilities. The South African Police Service launched a new health programme on Monday called "Viva Fitness!". About 200 police trainees kicked off the programme by doing jumping jacks and other exercises at the South African police training ground in Pretoria. Senior police officers meanwhile had an opportunity to assess their own fitness by measuring their body fat percentage, coordination abilities and other wellness indicators. The programme is the brainchild of Bheki Cele, the National Police Commissioner. "You can see police officers here at the college, they are slim, firm and fit, but as soon as they leave the college, it becomes a problem, we want to maintain those bodies until people go out of service," said Cele during a gym session on Monday. Officers will be required to have their body mass index monitored and will have to maintain the uniform size issued when they leave the academy. Those who exceed the size of the uniform they are issued will be given the opportunity to get back into shape over a year, Cele said. The programme has been designed by a committee from within the police force''s own ranks. The police service has committed to trying to install gyms at all police stations, as well as signing agreements with private gym partners to provide subsidised facilities for their staff. The police service says the programme is not related to the upcoming World Cup tournament. Even so, concerns have been raised about the safety of an estimated 500-thousand visitors expected to descend upon South Africa in June and July. The country has one of the world''s highest rates of violent crime. South African police have faced an image problem in recent weeks; earlier this month, a study on Metro police officers in the city of Port Elizabeth found more than half were medically obese, raising questions about the their ability to keep fans safe during the FIFA World Cup. And last month, a report released said that 323 members of the South African Police Service were "medically unfit", local media reported.

English/Nat Indonesian Vice-President Bacharuddin Habibie says his government is committed to reviving the country's stalled economy -- but not at the cost of prolonged social instability. Habibie predicted the Indonesian economy would rebound within two to three years, but said the government would proceed slowly to avoid provoking social unrest. Habibie is in London for a two-day summit of Asian leaders and spoke to a luncheon of British business people on Wednesday. Indonesia's new Vice President Bacharuddin Habibie was greeted warmly as he arrived for his speech to London's business elite on Wednesday afternoon. Habibie is in the U-K for a two-day summit of Asian leaders. The summit is launching a trust fund to build grassroots financial expertise in Asian countries. And Indonesia is facing its worst economic crisis in 30 years. Habibie earlier held talks with Britain's finance chief, Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown. But he used his luncheon speech to ensure potential British investors that Indonesia's economy has bottomed out. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The fact is we are coming out of this problem and if we come out we will be even better than before because we are going to learn from our mistakes and also from other mistakes and the best thing to convince you that you have to change is if you have to face that problem and if you have to solve it and indeed time is money and because of that we are not allowed to waste our time." SUPER CAPTION: Habibie Indonesia is suffering from the worst economic crisis in 30 years. The currency, the rupiah, has plunged about 70 percent and inflation and unemployment has soared. Habibie ensured his audience that Indonesia's government is in the midst of revising legislation that has led to a chokehold on the economy, especially laws which relate to banking. SOUNDBITE: (English) "We are about to get the credibility back for our bank, our banking system is very dependent on the law that is controlling, say the bankruptcy law and controlling the supervision of the banking and banking system, and even supporting the bank of Indonesia to make it more stronger than ever. I'd like to confirm that we are just in the middle of doing that. It will happen and must happen in the near future." SUPER CAPTION: Habibie The world's fourth most-populous nation has already experienced widespread social unrest. Student protests have been gathering force and there has been scattered rioting over rising food prices. However, Habibie said the government was not prepared to act on improving the economy at any cost. SOUNDBITE: (English) "I think it will take two to three years before we are back again in full speed but the most important thing is in that we have in the next weeks or next months to come out from, what you call the, minimum, we are just coming back now. And I think the Indonesian government has committed themselves to bring it back. But of course without ignoring the existing Indonesian constitution. Otherwise, we cannot bring it back at all costs and get a social political instability. Its bad." SUPER CAPTION: Habibie Habibie's lunch was sponsored by the U-K's non-profit cultural exchange group Asia House. About 60 British executives attended the lunch at a London hotel.

Eng/French/Nat Zaire's Information Minister announced on Friday that President Mobutu Sese Seko has given up power. The ailing dictator left Kinshasa for his northern palace, apparently ending his 32-year regime as rebels closed in on the capital. Mobutu flew off to Gbadolite, 700 miles north of Kinshasa, for what his spokesman called a "short rest." Later, the information minister Kin-Kiey Mulumba said Mobutu had "ceased all intervention in the conduct of affairs of state." The minister added that Mobutu reigns but does not govern. It's now rumoured Mobutu is planning to flee into exile possibly to France or Morocco. SOUNDBITE: (French) The head of state has left Kinshasa friday morning to go to Ghadoli where he normally lives as everybody knows. SUPER CAPTION: Kin-Kiey Mulumba, Zairean Information Minister. SOUNDBITE: (French) "During the transition period we will install a parliamentary regime, the Predident reigns but does not govern in contrast to the presidential regime of the second republic, now defunct, and the president will now only have executive powers" SUPER CAPTION: Kin-Kiey Mulumba, Zairean Information Minister. SOUNDBITE: (French) "The president of the republic can neither arbitrarily transfer powers to the rebel alliance nor transfer any powers which he doesn't constitutionally hold". SUPER CAPTION: Kin-Kiey Mulumba, Zairean Information Minister. SOUNDBITE: (French) "He is frightened of Kabila's troops who could come in either today or tomorrow". SUPER CAPTION: Vox pop - Kinshasa resident SOUNDBITE: (English) "They've chosen this place for an evacuation for the gathering of all the Commonwealth citizens if something happens and if there is an evacuation". SUPER CAPTION: Narmin Kassam, Canadian citizen, owner of sports club in Kinshasa SOUNDBITE: (French) "If there is confirmation that President Mobutu has definitely left then that's good news because that means it'll prevent the carnage that was expected in Kinshasa and I hope that President Mobutu will so that there is an immediate resignation in order to ensure a peaceful transition of power with the forces of change". SUPER CAPTION: Mukendi Wa Mulumba, adviser to former Zairean Prime Minister Etienne Tshisekedi SOUNDBITE: (French) "These last 32 years have been catastrophic for the economy, for society as a whole, therefore we think that Kabila is today considered the lesser of two evils, and it is with this in mind that I feel at this moment the Zairean people await Kabila's arrival".

SOUNDBITE: (English) Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Governor-Elect: "I've heard your voices loud and clear. We have... tough choices ahead. The first choice that we must make is the one that will determine our success. Shall we rebuild our state together or shall we we fight amongst ourselves creating deeper division and fail the people of California. Well let me tell you something, the answer is clear. For the people to win politics as usual must lose." 5. Wide shot of rally 6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Arnold Schwarzenegger, California Governor-Elect: "I will reach out to Republicans to Democrats and independents. To those who supported the recall and those who did not.

And what you mentioned before about no political experience, maybe that's what we need is something fresh and something new." 12. Schwarzenegger waving STORYLINE: Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger celebrated victory in the race to become California governor with hundreds of cheering supporters, including members of America's most prominent Democratic family on Tuesday. Standing hand-in-hand with his wife, Kennedy family member Maria Shriver, with her parents, Sargent Shriver and Eunice Kennedy Shriver, close by Schwarzenegger said he wanted to represent all the people of California. Speaking at the Century Plaza Hotel ballroom Schwarzenegger said he had received a gracious phone call from Governor Gray Davis conceding his defeat. Schwarzenegger pledged to bring jobs back to the state, improve education and restore trust in government, and urged his opponents to join him in solving California's problems. Earlier, as televisions in the ballroom monitored Davis' concession speech, the crowd of about 1,000 applauded when Davis said voters had decided it was time for someone else to serve as governor. Schwarzenegger raised at least 21.5 (m) million US dollars for the race, some 10 (m) million US dollars of which from his own pocket. The celebration must quickly give way to planning for a lightning-fast transition that will take place as soon as the election is certified, and no later than November 15. Schwarzenegger's campaign co-chairman, Republican David Dreier, will lead his transition team, campaign spokesman Todd Harris said.

The stunt by No Su-hui, 68, was designed to draw attention to the division of the Korean Peninsula. He had gone to Pyongyang from China in March without Seoul's permission, defying a law that prohibits South Koreans from travelling to North Korea without government approval, officials in Seoul said. He was arrested immediately after his return, police in Seoul said. Associated Press video showed South Korean officials in suits grabbing a defiant and resistant No just after he stepped over the demarcation line inside the Demilitarised Zone as South Korean soldiers snapped photographs at close distance. On the other side of the border, soldiers and officials stood watching the melee as crowds of North Koreans waved white "unified Korea" flags. Turning around to face crowds of cheering North Koreans before stepping over the line, No raised his arms and shouted "Long live national reunification, by our nation itself," a white unified Korea flag in his right hand and a bouquet of flowers in his left. No serves as vice chairman of South Korea's Pan-Alliance for Korea's Reunification. Most tourists must enter and exit North Korea via China.

French/Nat She remembers selling coloured pencils to Vincent Van Gogh and watching builders erect the Eiffel Tower. Jeanne Calment has outlived the rest of her family. But the woman said to be the world's oldest person had plenty of company and attention when she turned 120 Tuesday. More than five thousand birthday cards from around the world arrived at Jeanne Calment's nursing home in Arles. Journalists from around the world flocked to see her and her neighbours join in the birthday celebrations. Hard of hearing and nearly blind, Calment has been living since 1985 at the nursing home that has been named after her. The Guinness Book of Records lists Calment as the oldest person in the world whose age can be authenticated. She has been the oldest person since 1991, when American Carry White died at 116. And In seven months and 22 days, she would surpass Shigechiyo Izumi - a Japanese man who died in 1986 - as the oldest person of all time with a verifiable birth date. Experts, including her doctor, say the secrets to her youth lie partly in genetics, and partly in her extraordinary character. UPSOUND "A treat, give me a treat." "We'll bring you a candy. I will put it in your mouth...There, you can open your mouth....there." SOUNDBITE: (In French) "She comes from a family that has a propensity for living long and she has been endowed with a character that is extremely strong, extremely well structured which has allowed her to face life, and I do mean face life rather that be a victim of it, regardless of how hard some events of her life have been" SUPER CAPTION: Doctor Victor Limbre Calment has been forced to give up her two cigarettes a day and her single glass of port before meals, but she still nibbles on chocolate and plans many more birthdays.

English/Nat Angolan rebel leader Jonas Savimbi arrived in South Africa Wednesday to meet President Nelson Mandela and - he says - to learn from South Africa's example of national reconciliation. Angola has been wracked by civil war for 19 years but the leaders of the two warring factions met for talks earlier in the month, paving the way for a possible lasting peace. Angolan rebel leader Jonas Savimbi arrived for a two-day visit to South Africa Wednesday and was met by Foreign Minister Alfred Nzo. They greeted like old friends even though Mandela's African National Congress long supported Savimbi's foe - Angolan President Jose Eduardo dos Santos. The two men led sides in a civil war that has lasted nearly twenty years and killed 500,000 people and made thousands of others refugees. Despite a multi-party election in 1992 fighting continued until an uneasy truce was called last November and the United Nations is sending in a large peacekeeping force. SOUND BITE: "The people on both sides are tired of war. The government knows that the people they don't want war anymore." SUPER CAPTION: Jonas Savimbi, Rebel Angolan Leader Savimbi and Dos Santos agreed at an historic meeting on May 6 to work together to ensure peace in Angola. This time both sides are more confident that one day the southern African country - rich in oil and diamonds - will flourish. SOUND BITE: "There is a lot of pressure to say stop the war, start talking, we want stability in our country. I think that will lead us to find a final solution." SUPER CAPTION: Jonas Savimbi, Rebel Angolan Leader Savimbi later held talks with Mandela at the official presidential residence. He hopes to learn from South Africa's relatively bloodless transfer of power following the dismantling of apartheid and the country's first all-party elections. Given his experience of including his foes in his government, Mandela's view is that peace will not work in Angola unless Savimbi is included in the government. SOUNDBITE: "He and President De Soto have made a breakthrough in Lusaka. And one of the questions I am going to raise with the doctor is whether this remarkable advance in Lusaka is now going to be expressed in the structure of government in Angola because any agreement which is not going to be reflected in the actual structure of government cannot bring about peace." SUPERCAPTION: Nelson Mandela, President of South Africa Savimbi also wanted to reassure the legendary African leader that he means business and that he is not going to scuttle peace efforts. SOUNDBITE: "We came here with open minds to listen, to express our views, anxieties but most of all we want to assure the President of South Africa that we could not come here to meet such a great son of Africa and tell lies." SUPERCAPTION: Jonas Savimbi, Rebel Angolan Leader The moral force of Mandela's leadership in South Africa is likely to have had a positive effect on all the players in Angola . The fact that he has forgiven his foes and his jailers, implies the Angolan players should do the same.

Funeral service for actress Natasha Richardson
(22 Mar 2009) Friends and family gathered in a small Hudson Valley town on Sunday to say a final farewell to Tony Award-winning actress Natasha Richardson. Liam Neeson, in a dark suit and sunglasses, was at the head of the casket as he and five other pallbearers carried his wife's coffin into St. Peter's Episcopal Church, near the home where the two married in 1994. He and Richardson's mother, actress Vanessa Redgrave, waved to the dozens of reporters crowded behind a police barricade on the dirt road leading to the tiny white clapboard church. The grieving family, including the couple's two sons, Micheal, 13, and Daniel, 12, then paused to allow the media to photograph them in front of church before the service. Ralph Fiennes, Alan Rickman, Laura Linney, Uma Thurman and Timothy Dalton were among the friends who filed into the church on the chilly spring afternoon. After a graveside service under a large green tent, the 45-year-old actress was buried in a nearby cemetery, about 80 miles (128 kilometres) north of New York City. She was laid to rest near the grave of her maternal grandmother, the actress Rachel Kempson, who died while visiting her granddaughter and Neeson at their home in nearby Millbrook in 2003. Neeson and the Redgrave family, including Richardson's sister, actress Joely Richardson, visited Kempson's grave after the burial. Richardson died on Wednesday at a Manhattan hospital after falling while skiing Monday at the Mont Tremblant resort in the Canadian province of Quebec. The New York City medical examiner's office said Richardson suffered from an epidural hematoma, which causes bleeding between the skull and the brain's covering. She wasn't wearing a helmet when she fell. Richardson is descended from one of Britain's great acting dynasties but built her own reputation in films such as "Patty Hearst" and "The Handmaid's Tale," as well as for her work on the stage. She won a Tony for her role in the 1998 revival of "Cabaret." She co-starred with future husband Neeson in the 1993 revival of Eugene O'Neill's "Anna Christie." The two married at their secluded Millbrook home the next year. The famous couple was well known in this area, which counts many celebrities among its part-time residents. The ceremony on Sunday caps off a grim week during which Neeson greeted a stream of friends and family during a private viewing on Friday at the American Irish Historical Society. Celebrities paying respects this week included Diane Sawyer, Ethan Hawke and Sarah Jessica Parker. Theatres on Broadway and London's West End dimmed their lights this week in honour of Richardson. Her final feature film, "Wild Child," has been released internationally but not in the US, and Universal Pictures said a US release date had not been scheduled.

Presidential candidate Raul Roco at school campus - zooms in on Roco with arms raised in air 9. Crowd watching 10. Roco walking through crowd shaking hands - pans STORYLINE: Election posters went up and candidates addressed their first rallies as the traditionally festive - and often violent - Philippine presidential campaign opened on Tuesday. The May 10 poll promises to be the most contentious since the 1986 snap election that led to the downfall of late dictator Ferdinand Marcos and restoration of democracy, according to local media. The main rival to incumbent Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is movie star Fernando Poe Jr. who kicked off his campaign at an indoor stadium in Manila's Pasay district packed with about 20-thousand supporters. Poe's spokesman said the event, with its giant video screens and fellow celebrities was "tailored for television". The actor is a 64-year-old high school dropout who is courting mostly poor voters who helped elect his friend and fellow film star, Joseph Estrada in 1998. Poe says he wants to restore confidence in government. But he's said very little of his programme and has avoided media questions, raising concerns over his lack of inexperience. Currently lying in third place in voters surveys is prominent former Senator Raul Roco. He opened his campaign in a more subdued style, spending time with university students in the capital. Roco served as Arroyo's education secretary before the two fell out. He has a clean reputation and has fared well in popularity surveys, but lacks the backing of traditional political parties. The elections are already off to a bad start. A multi-million (m) U-S-dollar scandal has scuttled plans to use computers for the first time to speed up - and clean up - the ballot count. Notoriously slow hand-counting, which has fostered vote-rigging and violence in the past, will be used again instead.

Middle-aged graffiti elders are still picking up the spray
(31 Jul 2012) LEADIN: Graffiti art was a radical form of expression that changed the landscape of New York's streets in the 1970s and 80s. Three decades on, many of the original graffiti artists are still spray painting their feelings and creating art on New York's streets despite their middle-aged responsibilities. STORYLINE: In torn jeans and saddled with a black backpack, Andrew Witten glances up and down the street for police, and then whips out his black marker pen and scribbles "Zephyr" on a wall. Witten was part of a generation of urban latchkey kids who spray-painted their initials all over Manhattan in the 1970s and '80s. Now the artistic rebels that transformed the city's urban landscape, and art scene are coming of age - middle age, that is. But the 51-year-old single father is having trouble putting away his spray paint can. Now revered as a graffiti elder, Witten says it is the only time he feels free. "I'm chronologically old to be out there doing it. I'm sure I can't run quite as fast. But it's the only time that I feel completely free actually," he says. Witten built a reputation as a master at spray-painting extravagant graffiti pieces on freight and subway trains, called train-bombing, in the neighbourhoods where he now teaches his 6-year-old daughter, Lulu, to skateboard. For him, spray-painting other people's property with his nickname, or tag, is almost an addiction, and danger is part of the drug. Crawling under barbed wire, ducking from police officers, even being shot at is all part of the experience. But he is all too aware of the consequences of being caught by the police for expressing himself on public property when he is a single father caring for his daughter. "I'm ready. I could go tonight. But I have to be pragmatic and look at the benefits if I go tonight and the risks. And because of my daughter that wouldn't be the responsible thing to do because she needs her father and in jail I'm not much use as a father," he says. But with an artist's heart, Witten describes painting graffiti in more poetic terms. He calls it a freeing experience, in which the silence of night gives way to the hiss and mist of the spray rising into the moonlight. On a tour of past works of graffiti, Witten says something from 1994 is a rarity: usually work would be spray painted over, or cleaned away. Witten's brush with fame now often comes with his freelance art writing and his sporadic visits to his daughter's school, where he teaches her classmates how to draw. Lulu knows her father draws "crazy art," a term she picked up from seeing graffiti on trains. "Well she's a big fan of graffiti but she has her own name for it which is 'crazy art' which she came up with on her own," he says. Angel Ortiz recently served 41 days of a 50-day sentence in the Rikers Island jail system after being busted for spraying his tag, LA Roc, on a billboard in March last year. For decades, 45-year-old Ortiz, has been known on Manhattan's Lower East Side as LA Roc. A traumatic loss of a girlfriend brought him out of a 14-year hiatus from graffiti writing. He has since been caught three times spraying his tag on property, each time while walking a friend's dog. The streets are his canvasses he says. He usually scribbles with black marker pen, "LA Roc", and was doing this when he was caught by police. When a pair of police officers smelled the fresh paint and nabbed Ortiz, they asked if he saw himself as too old to be doing graffiti. But even now, Ortiz keeps a spray can or marker in his pocket to satisfy that incessant itch to tag mailboxes, signs and fire hydrants. Graffiti documentary maker and photographer Henry Chalfant looks back at Ortiz's heyday as a revolutionary time period in street art.

New wood burning stoves save lives in Kenya
(5 Aug 2012) LEADIN: For many in rural Africa, the centuries old 'three stone stove' cooking technique is still used. But this inefficient system wastes precious firewood and causes respiratory illnesses. Now a new invention promises to improve lives by halving the amount of fuel required and reducing toxic smoke. STORYLINE: Choking on the fumes 86-year-old Mary Nyambura uses the same cooking technique as her ancestors thousands of years ago. Three stone stove cooking is a daily ritual for almost half of the 40 million Kenyas, and many more besides across continental Africa. Although it has a Boy Scout appeal, the smoke is highly toxic when inhaled over a prolonged period and the World Health Organisation estimates it is responsible for 14,000 deaths every year in Kenya alone. But it's not just bad for the health, it's bad for the purse too. Firewood is an increasingly expensive source of fuel. Mary Nyambura explains: "For someone who doesn't have his or her own tree, you have to buy a lot of firewood and that doesn't even last three days because you have to use a lot of firewood so that you can get the fire going, if you put one or two the fire will not start up, they will just make smoke but you will not get any fire. One is forced to put firewood on all sides, after they have smoked for a while, you throw a piece of paper in and the fire starts." But a project - backed by the U.N. - is hoping to revolutionise Kenyan cooking. The Paradigm Project is campaigning against traditional fires and is promoting the development of stove technology that burns more efficiently than open fires. In Kenya, the Paradigm Project works with partners to produce modernised stoves like the 'jiko poa' (meaning good stove in Swahili). These stoves claim to use half as much wood as an open fire. At this factory engineer James Irungu is putting the finishing touches to the latest jiko poa off the production line. Irungu says: "The 'jiko poa' is made of three parts, we have the cooker, this is where the pot sits on, inside we have a ceramic liner, its made of clay, this supports the combustion and reduces the firewood usage by more than 50 per cent and this is where we place our firewood, you just place them horizontally, light it the normal way that you would light any other stove, it's portable and quite efficient. It emits less smoke compared to the three stone so its quite advantageous compared to any other type of cooking device or equipment." They make about 150 a day, packed and ready for to be transported to various suppliers. "Here we have the final product 'jiko poa' ready to go, we usually make 50 to 150 pieces in a day, so far today we have made 35, by the end of the day we are expecting to have maybe 150 because today the production is quite okay," says Irungu. The challenge is that one 'jiko poa' costs 20 US dollars and for most Kenyans living on less than a dollar a day, that's a lot of money. The Paradigm Project hopes to get around this through subsidies and by using carbon credits from developed countries because less firewood is burnt. Expensive, maybe, but there are already success stories for this clean technology in Kenya. 79-year-old Lucia Wambui's new stove has put a smile on her face. She faces the arduous task of chopping firewood with an axe - now she has half as much work to do. Lucia says that it helps her get her food ready more quickly and has been friendly on her pocket. "This stove really makes me happy since the first time I started cooking with it. It makes me happy with the way I am able to cook very fast and it does not smoke and the way that I am saving a lot of money from buying less firewood than I used to before so I am able to use that money to do other things."

US President Bush visits the Islamic Centre - 2001
1. Wide shot Bush and Arab American representative addressing journalists 2. SOUNDBITE (English) George W Bush, U -S President: "Thank you all very much for your hospitality. We just had some wide-ranging discussions on the matter in hand. Like the good folk standing with me, the American people were appauled and outraged at last Tuesday's attacks and so were Muslims all acros the world. Both Americans, our Muslim friends, our citizens, our tax-paying citizens and Muslims in (other) nations were just appaulled - could not believ - what we saw on our TV screens. These acts of violence against innocents violate the fundamental tenets of Islamic faith and it is important for our fellow Americans to understand that. The English translation is not as eloquent as the original Arabic, but let me quote from the Qoran itself: 'In the long run evil in the extreme will be the end of those who do evil. For that they rejectedthe signs of Allah and held them up to ridicule.' The face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. That's not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace. These terrorisrts don't represent peace -they represent evil and war. When we think of ISlam we think of a faith that brings comfort to a billion people around the world - billions of people find comfort and solace in peace. And that has made brothers and sisters out of every race - out of every race. America counts millions of Muslims amongst our citizens and Muslims make an incredibly valuable contribution to our country: Muslims are doctors, lawyers, law professors, members of the military, entrepreneurs, shopkeepers, moms and dads and they need to be treated with respect. In our anger and emotion, our fellow Americans, we must treat each other with respect. Women who cover their heads in this country must feel comfortable ghoing outside their homes. Moms who wear covermust not be intimidated in America. That's not the America I know. That's not the America I value. I hjave been told that some fear to elave, some don't want ot go shopping for their families, some don't want to go back to ordinary daily routines because by wearing cover they are aftraid that they will be intimidated. That should not - and that will not - stand in America. Those who feel like they can intimidate our fellow citizens to take out their anger, they don't represent the best of America, the represent the worst of hunman kind and they should be ashamed of that kind of behaviuor. And this is a great country, it;s a great xountry because we share the same values of respect and dignity and human worth. And it is my honour to be meeting with leaders who feel jst the same way that I do. They are outraged, they are sad, they love America just as much as I do. And I want to thank you all for giving me a chance to come by and may God bless us all. " 3. Cutaway wide shot Bush and others 4. SOUNDBITE (English): " 5. Various Bush being shown around the Islamic Centre STORYLINE: President Bush visited the Washington Islamic Center about two miles (3.2 kilometers) from the White House and decried prejudice against Muslim and Arab- Americans. Those venting such anger "don't represent the best of America, they represent the worst of humankind and they should be ashamed of their behavior," Bush said. In stockinged feet, he stood with his back to an ornately tiled prayer alcove and read a passage from the Koran: "In the long run, evil in the extreme will be the end of those who do evil." Added Bush: "Islam is peace. These terrorists don't represent peace."

English/Nat In the first in what is sure to be many memorial services, friends and loved ones came to pay last respects to Rachel Scott. The 17 year-old Columbine High School student was gunned down last week during a shooting rampage at the school. As Ms. Scott was mourned local authorities continued their search of evidence from the crime scene. New information turned up that may shed light on how the two suspects, boys who attended Columbine, laid out their plan to devastate those who had wronged them in the past. On Saturday, weeping and distraught, friends and relatives remembered the girl they called "Joy". The funeral for Rachel Scott was held in Littleton, Colorado, the same place her life was cut short in a storm of gunfire and homemade bombs. SOUNDBITE: (English) "When others were ignoring and even talking making fun of students who didn't fit in, Rachel was trying to reach out to them." SUPERCAPTION: Friend of Rachel's One friend praised her self-confidence and belief in God. SOUNDBITE: (English) "She never needed my protection cause she was strong enough to face everything that was coming. She didn't need anybody's hand on her life because she had Jesus's hand on her. SUPER CAPTION: Student and Friend of Rachel's Another friend,who escorted Rachel to the senior prom last Saturday, talked about the role fate played in his relationship with her. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Everyday during fifth hour she'd go out to the smoker's pit which is like 100 yards away from the school to smoke. I had her quit for prom and on Tuesday she was in the cafeteria during fifth hour instead of the smokers pit." SUPERCAPTION: Friend of Rachel's The adults mourned the loss of their children. The clergy vented their feelings about the incident. SOUNDBITE: (English) "What has happened to us as a people that this should happen to us. What is wrong that such brutality could take place among our children. SUPERCAPTION: Rev. Bruce Porter Earlier in the day mourners brought flowers in remembrance to Ms. Scott. Her car has served as a shrine to her memory. Some people sang songs like "Amazing Grace". Others prayed and remembered their lost friend. SOUNDBITE: (English) She was full of life and anything that she did she was determined to do and go where ever she wanted to . And she was just full of drive and passion and life." SUPER CAPTION:Sarah Bay/Friend of Rachel SOUNDBITE: (English) "I essentially told her that her soul touched us all in a way that words cannot begin to describe and that we were going to miss her more than any of us could begin to say and that I loved her." SUPER CAPTION:Christine Bell/ Friend of Rachel Law enforcement continued to comb through the material left at the crime scene. A Colorado newspaper printed a possible suicide note sent via the internet on behalf of one of the gunmen. Police doubt the authenticity of the letter. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Right now we don't have any idea, like I said, we have people working on it there are some theories. Some guys have brought up some ideas but I haven't heard that 'yes it means this'." SUPER CAPTION: Steve Davis/ Jefferson County Sheriff Spokesman The sheriff investigating the scene, John Stone, said that investigators found a diary at one of the suspects homes that indicated the two teens had been plotting their attack on the high school since April 1998. SOUNDBITE: (English) SUPER CAPTION: John Stone, Jefferson County Sheriff John Stone indicated that the parents of the two boys who plotted the massacre should have been aware of their plans.
