Lil Wayne stands by his 'no such thing as racism' comment.
(12 Oct 2016) LIL WAYNE EXPLAINS HIS 'NO SUCH THING AS RACISM' COMMENT Lil Wayne understands why some people criticized him for saying racism is over, but claims people don't see it from his perspective. The rapper got some backlash last month when he told Fox Sports 1's "Undisputed" that there was "no such thing as racism" because his concert audiences had a lot of white fans. He also said millennials knew that racism wasn't cool. When asked on Tuesday to expand on his thoughts, Lil Wayne told The Associated Press that one of the reasons he feels that way is because a white police officer saved his life when he was 12 years old after he accidentally shot himself in the chest. "Yeah, he was a cop, and my life was saved by a white man. I don't know what racism is. I know a good (expletive) named Uncle Bob, though." Carter said. The Grammy-winning rapper said he was lying on the floor when police broke down the door, stepping over his body looking for guns and drugs. But one man stopped and chastised the others for leaving him. "He was white as snow. Them (expletive) that hopped over me were blacker than me," Carter said. Carter says the man known as "Uncle Bob" personally took him to the hospital and stayed with him. "(He) stood there and waited until the doctor said 'He's gonna make it,'" Carter said. Still, he acknowledged that despite what he told Skip Bayless on "Undisputed," there is such thing as racism. However, he says when he looks out from the stage, he sees all colors. "When I open my eyes on stage and when I, at a Lil Wayne show when I come from under the stage. Man, it's not - it's the world out there. It's not a certain part or a certain kind or a certain culture or whatever of people, it's people - those people out there in that crowd. They make, quote unquote, and they make, quote unquote, Lil Wayne." He added: "That's who I happen to be, and I'm sorry I'm sorry if people can't understand. But I understand why they don't understand, it's because they don't come from the bottom of the stage and look at 20 to 30-thousand people. They don't get that opportunity. And I'm blessed to have that opportunity, so with that said I can only be honest with such a thing. I have never witnessed racism." Carter made the comments while promoting the recently published "Gone Till November: A Journal of Rikers Island," a revealing account of his eight-month jail sentence in 2010 after a gun charge.

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.

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.

President Bush is spending a weekend with his parents at their summer home at Kennebunkport on the Maine coast. The latest bombing on a packed bus in northern Israel during the morning rush hour on Sunday killed at least nine people and wounded 37 others.

(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.

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.

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.

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".

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.

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: Gil Garcetti, District Attorney Marcia Clark, who had told the jurors on the first day of the trial that there was a mountain of evidence against Simpson, was gracious in defeat. SOUNDBITE: It was a dignified fight, it showed great courage, great integrity, great moral strength and we have every reason to be proud of every single one of them. And we are. Thank you. SUPER CAPTION: Marcia Clark, OJ Simpson Prosecutor For Prosecutor Christopher Darden the jurors' decision to acquit Simpson was too much to bear. SOUNDBITE: "I'm not angry. But I'd also like to thank the lawyers on our prosecution team. I am honoured to have." SUPER CAPTION: But Darden could take no more and felt compelled to leave the courtroom. Then it was Fred Goldman's turn. For him the verdict was a double cruelty. SOUNDBITE: Last June 13th '94, was the worse nightmare of my life. This is the second. 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. I will forever be proud of my son and my family. Thank you." SUPER CAPTION: Goldman The Goldmans' believe that justice has not been done and that the US justice system is the biggest loser today.

Heir to the throne on death of his aunt
1. SOUNDBITE: (English) Britain's Prince Charles "This is a terribly sad day for all my family, but particularly of course for the Queen, my mama, and my grandmother, the Queen Mother, and also for Princess Margaret's children, David and Sarah, and also my aunt's wonderful friends who, like all of us, miss her deeply. My darling aunt had such dreadful times in the past few years with her awful illness and it was hard for let alone her to bear it, but for all of us as well - particularly as she had such a wonderfully free spirit. She lived life and lived it to the full and from that point of view it was even harder for everybody to witness this, and of course at this moment all our hearts go out to all those people who also have relations who have suffered from strokes and they know only too well the agony that people have to go through. But also I think my aunt was one of those remarkable people who apart from being incredibly vital and atttractive - and of course when she was young so many people remember her for that vitality and attractiveness and indeed her incredible beauty - but she also - and I think many people don't realise this - she had such incredible talents. I remember so well she used to play the piano incredibly well and she had an extraordinary ear. She could pick up and play by ear almost any tune and she sang like an angel, I always remember that as a child. And of course she had this wonderfully sharp mind and used to win literally cross word puzzle competitions. And I think one of the fondest memories I shall have of her was of sitting at the piano playing away with a large, very elegant cigarette holder in her mouth. And, as I say, we shall all miss her dreadfully and dreadfully sad as death is at times like this, I think in a way for her it must have been a merciful release as many people would understand I think for someone who was such a vital and free spirit. So may I take this opportunity to, on behalf of my whole family and in particular my grandmother Queen Elizabeth, thank all those wonderful people who have already sent in their condolences and their marvellous letter of sympathy, they are so greatly appreciated." STORYLINE: Britain's Prince of Wales on Saturday paid tribute to his aunt, Prince Margaret, who died earlier in the day. He said the princess had suffered a dreadful time in the last few years with an illness that was hard for her to bear. "We will all miss her dreadfully," he said, as he spoke fondly of his "darling aunt" and her "incredibly vital" spirits. The heir to the British throne said the royal family's hearts went out to all those who had suffered strokes and he thanked all wellwishers. The Prince was speaking at his grandmother's Sandringham estate in Norfolk in eastern England.

Tourism on the rise in Iran
(11 Nov 2016) LEAD IN: More western tourists are visiting Iran after a thaw in relations following last year's nuclear deal. STORY-LINE: Iranians are seeing more foreign tourists on their streets a year after the landmark nuclear deal that ended a decade of standoff with the world community. Home to beautiful mountains, breathtaking historical buildings and priceless artwork it has lots to offer the intrepid holiday maker. UNESCO, the United Nations culture agency, has 21 sites in Iran on its World Heritage List. They include the ruins of Persepolis and Pasargadae, the mosques and palace at Meidan Emam of Isfahan and other sites. Beyond that, local skiers and snowboarders boast of Iran's mountains, while Tehran enjoys a growing modern art scene. Shiite pilgrims also travel to different sites in the country. In the last few years, Iran reported having around 5 million tourists a year, most coming from Iraq and other neighbouring countries. Tehran's historical Grand Bazaar, situated in the south, is the largest and most important market in the capital. Every day thousands of traders and ordinary people come to the bazaar to do business, shopping or just pass through. Jacques Genevieve Sanchez is a French tourist visiting the bazaar. She came to Iran with her husband a week ago. She says they started planning this trip years ago but felt now was the right time to finally make that happen. "(We travelled to Iran) because we thought of the country many, many years ago and it seems to them that it is easiest today because there is a new connection between Europe and Iran and we notice that it's true", she says. Another tourist is Stefan Moeller from Germany. The businessman chose Iran as a holiday destination for him and his wife and one-year-old son. Stefan says he has found it an interesting and safe destination despite all the negative publicity it gets. "European people are afraid about Iran. They think there is war and some bad guys here but it is all nice here. Because it's so funny and you can have a lot of fun without those things that we have in Europe", he says. However there are lots of Middle Eastern laws here that are worlds apart from life in Europe. Alcohol is illegal and women are required by law to cover their hair. Homosexuals can also face the death penalty in Iran. While it may be getting more popular with Europeans, Americans make up less than one percent of tourists. However despite US travel warnings, an American luxury tour operator is currently promoting a new trip to Iran in May. Illinois-based Abercrombie & Kent is offering the tour to those willing to take the risk, describing it as the first opportunity to see an Iran opening up to the West after the nuclear deal. The cost of the 12-day tour starts at 5,600 US dollars. Iran and America haven't had formal diplomatic relations since the 1979 US Embassy takeover following the country's Islamic Revolution. The Swiss Embassy currently looks after American interests in the country. Abercrombie & Kent says that interchange between American tourists and the Iranian people will help bridge the gap between the two nations.

Sean Penn: Bradley Cooper remake of 'A Star is Born' is astonishing
(28 May 2018) SEAN PENN: BRADLEY COOPER REMAKE OF 'A STAR IS BORN' IS ASTONISHING The anticipated remake of "A Star is Born" doesn't premiere until October but it's already gaining buzz. The movie is the directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper, who also stars in the film alongside Lady Gaga, who plays an aspiring singer - a role previously played by Judy Garland (the 1954 version) and Barbra Streisand (the 1976 version). A trailer premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas recently to applause from the crowd of theater owners and exhibitors and tweets of praise from journalists in attendance. One person who has seen an early screening is actor Sean Penn, who described it during a recent interview as "one of the best movies I've seen in I don't know how many years." "The acting is brilliant. Both, they are astonishing in it. And he as a director is the kind of artist that we had when I was kind of coming up as an audience. I knew he was a very talented actor, I did not know what was going on inside that guy's brain until I saw this movie and so that got – I'm really excited to see because: A, it's a great movie for a cinephile whose all about art films because it's all there. But that doesn't mean that everybody else isn't going to understand it and love it. This thing is like a Hal Ashby move. It's for everybody. It's a great movie for everybody instead of a pandering movie to make sure, for anybody." Cooper already has his next directing gig lined up, helming and starring in Leonard Bernstein biopic "Bernstein." Bernstein was named conductor of the New York Philharmonic orchestra at 25. He then wrote and composed the music for the film "West Side Story." A second movie about Bernstein is also in the works with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role.

Phoenix, Ramsay talk speedy turnaround for 'You Were Never Really Here'
(27 May 2017) PHOENIX, RAMSAY TALK SPEEDY TURNAROUND FOR 'YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE' Joaquin Phoenix and director Lynne Ramsay Saturday (27 MAY 2017) told the Cannes Film Festival about the speed with which its closing film "You Were Never Really Here" was brought into being. The "We Need to Talk About Kevin" filmmaker returns to the Palme d'Or shortlist with her new tale of corrupt power and vengeance. Based on a novella by Jonathan Ames, "You Were Never Really Here," follows Phoenix as a tormented war veteran trying to save a teenaged girl – played by Ekaterina Samsov - from a sex trafficking ring. As his rescue mission goes wrong, a storm of violence is unleashed that may lead to his awakening. Ramsay adapted the story with Phoenix in mind for the lead role – but had to get ready for shooting in just two months, to slot into a last minute gap in his schedule. "I was meant to do something else and that didn't happen and Lynne and I had spoken already and I said, 'Do you think you could make it this summer?' which was like two months away," recalled Phoenix. "She said, 'Yeah,' I thought, 'Can you really get a movie together that quickly?' and somehow she did. It came together really quickly" "I didn't even think I'd finish the script and then I was going into prep and then getting visas to go to New York because I was living in Santorini at the time so it was really a bit crazy," added Ramsay. "But I think some of that spirit was good." The director arrived at the festival fresh from working on post production, adding Johnny Greenwood's music just last week. Ramsay told the conference she was still editing the final cut. Critics at the conference gave the festival version a warm reception, congratulating Ramsay on the tale's subversion of thriller norms. "We wanted to get away from that idea of the male hero," noted Phoenix, " I remember Jim Wilson, the producer would sometimes describe it as 'the impotence of masculinity' so we kind of established this character that seems very capable but in some ways he's not. I think what's maybe interesting about this film for a genre film is that really the girl is ultimately the one who saves herself, so it's not about man coming in and saving the girl." Ramsay was also asked about her thoughts on the controversy surrounding streaming-only films in this year's competition. After insisting she had not been following the debate, Ramsay noted, "I believe in movies being projected, going to this technical rehearsal seeing a film on the big screen, that's an experience so obviously as a filmmaker I believe in that, but also Amazon helped to finance my film, Ted Hope, who's the head of Amazon is a film buff, he knows every movie and he's really helped me so – and I think there's some really good stuff coming on TV too, 'Twin Peaks' and 'Top of the Lake' so it's a tough time, but I really hope we always have theatrical releases." "You Were Never Really Here" is part financed by Amazon Studios – which has a policy of screening its original movies on the big screen before transferring them to its streaming service. Ramsay has won four awards at the festival in previous years, for her short films "Small Deaths" and "Gasman" and her English/Spanish language tale "Morvern Callar." "We Need to Talk About Kevin" was launched in Cannes, where it screened in competition in 2011. The winner of the Palme d'Or is announced on Sunday 28 May.

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.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Fernando Poe Jr., Philippine presidential candidate: "We need a leadership that will apply the rule of law. We need a leadership that has political will. We need a leadership that inspires confidence, not fear (crowd cheers)." 6. Wide shot of Poe and fellow campaigners on stage with ticker tape falling 7. Close-up of Poe 8. 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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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.

Czech/Nat While the toll of midnight may potentially throw the world's clocks and computers into chaos, there is one time piece which will definitely have no problem. The Orloj's (pronounced OR-loy) spectacular tolling of the hours on the Old Town Square in Prague is watched by thousands of tourists every day, making it one of Europe's most famous clocks. This is the heart of ``Magic Prague,'' the Old Town Square, magnet for the nearly four million tourists who visit Prague every year. And at the centre of the Square is the six hundred year old Orloj, the clock on the old town hall that draws the most sightseers. Each day at the top of the hour hundreds gather beneath the clock to watch the tolling of the hour. What is mundane on an ordinary clock is a magnificent display of medieval technology at work. Otakar Zamecnik (OHT-ahk-ar ZAH-mech-neek) is the Orlojnik, or the keeper of the Orloj. For nearly two decades he has been making weekly visits to the clock to make sure it doesn't miss the hour. He say that while the Y2K problem might throw other timepieces into a spin, the bug will definitely have no effect on the Orloj. SOUNDBITE: (Czech) ``The year two thousand definitely can not have any affect on the Orloj because it is not run by a computer. It has been here for six hundred years and can run for six hundred more.'' SUPERCAPTION: Otakar Zamecnik, Orlojnik It is the way it tolls the hour for the past 600 years that is so special. What happens inside might only be of interest to the expert horologist, but from the square below, it is a spectacle to behold. The twelve apostles each make an appearance, peeking out of two windows high above the crowd below. And below tiny figurines move and ring bells and the golden rooster crows. The show only lasts a few minutes, but it's a show that's been happening since the 14th century, and the crowd always seems pleased. And while Y2K bug may potentially throw air travel into chaos and set off nuclear missiles, in Prague on New Year's Eve, the Orloj will keep on ticking...

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.

Syrian govt forces show weapons they say rebels handed over
(22 Apr 2018) RESTRICTION SUMMARY: AP CLIENTS ONLY ++PLEASE NOTE THIS STORY WAS FILMED ON A MEDIA FACILITY SUPERVISED BY THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT++ ASSOCIATED PRESS - AP CLIENTS ONLY Dumayr, Qalamoun area - 22 April 2018 1.

Close of Islamic State group sign on an ambulance STORYLINE: Syrian government forces on Thursday laid on display hundreds of weapons and military equipment which they say belonged to rebel groups. This video was filmed as part of a media trip to the Qalamoun region supervised by the Syrian-government.   Syria's official government news agency said that the weapons were handed over by the rebels to the Syrian military in return for their safe passage out of the area and into Northern Syria.   Many appeared to have been manufactured in the US or Europe. The Syrian government took control of the town of Dumayr on Thursday after rebels evacuated to north Syria — the latest in a string of handovers by rebels to the government. There have been several handovers by rebels to the government in the capital region following a punishing government offensive against the rebellious eastern Ghouta region earlier this year. Rebels surrendered towns across eastern Ghouta as the offensive drove on, giving up control of an area once home to an estimated 400,000 people in a matter of weeks. The Syrian government has been following a proven strategy of besieging opposition areas until residents and fighters, desperate for food, medical treatment and relief, give up and accept government control. The Syrian government says it is fighting a war against terrorism and has sought to portray its recent gains as liberating territory from terrorist control. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

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."

'Arrested Development’ stars support Jeffrey Tambor during one of the actor's first public appearanc
(18 May 2018) 'ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT' STARS SUPPORTS JEFFREY TAMBOR DURING THE SERIES' SEASON FIVE PREMIERE The creator and executive producer of "Arrested Development" acknowledges that some people will not like his decision to keep actor Jeffrey Tambor in the show after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced last October.    "Good people will find this offensive," explained Mitchell Hurwitz. "I too get worked up when I hear about Harvey Weinstein and other people who have taken advantage of people. But I also believe very strongly that we don't want to live in a world where accusations ruin people's lives. We have tried that as a human race and it doesn't always, doesn't work out great, you know? So accusations are very different than proof and, you know, we obviously are going to support people that haven't done, that haven't been proved guilty." Hurwitz said production was nearly wrapped on season five when news broke of the allegations made by Tambor's former assistant and an actress on his other show, "Transparent." "Not only do I support him as a friend, but I've known him for 20 years. I've worked with him for 20 years and I've never seen any behavior like that described. I've never, even in private he's never been in any way inappropriate about, we don't talk about women or objectify. It's just not who he is and he's a lot of things that I'd like to list, a lot of really bad qualities I'd like to list for you now, but nowhere in there, in my experience, is any kind of creep," said Hurwitz. The "Arrested Development" cast unanimously supported the 73-year-old actor at the Los Angeles premiere for the cult comedy's new season. The event also marked one of the first public appearances for Tambor in recent months. "It's great to have everybody. No, it's great to have everybody here, you know? We are a family and it's great to have everybody in the family here," said co-star Will Arnett. Tambor denies the misconduct claims that led to his firing on Amazon's "Transparent" earlier this year. His "Arrested Development" co-stars said they could only speak to their own experiences with the Emmy-winning actor.    "All I know about is 'Arrested Development' and he's always just been incredible with us and I'm really looking forward to seeing him tonight," Jason Bateman said on his was into the screening. "My experience with Jeffrey has been nothing but respectful," echoed Tony Hale. "And he is such a funny man. He's so talented and he's an integral part of the show and just my experience has been nothing but respectful. I was not, I don't have information on that other… But like, if I'm speaking from my perspective, it's been nothing but respectful." Tambor posed for photos with his wife Kasia Ostlun but did not do interviews with the press. Actor-comedian David Cross was one of the first "Arrested Development" stars to speak out publicly in support of Tambor.   "I'll say what I've said before, I've said my piece. I stand by it. I support him as a friend and a person. I don't condone any of those, that kind of behavior, but I support my friend," Cross said on the red carpet. "Love Jeffrey!" said Portia de Rossi. "I've always loved Jeffrey and we support him and adore him and, yeah, he's terrific." When asked about Tambor remaining in season five, Jessica Walter, who plays his wife, simply said, "The family is the family. You can't cut anybody out nor would we ever want to. It is what it is."
