As usual in my editoriel this week will include the occasional speling mistake here or there. So for all tje first yeers who enjoy reading barefacts, how many this week?
Anyway, this week barefacts appointed two new edi- tors to the team , Science and Film. These positions will be filled by NIck Walsh (Science) and Libby Hurt and Sariqa Wagley (co editors of Film). So look out for new articles by them in the next few issues.
Thanks to all the people who contributed this week and especially the guys who stayed around on Tuesday night to lay up and to Dave who spent 2 hours scanning fetish photos for the paper.
Four Britons are among the passengers of a Singapore Airlines 747 plane which has crashed at Taipei International Airport on Taiwan. The plane, bound for Los Angeles, crashed seconds after taking off, bursting into flames as it hit the runway. The weather conditions were described as bad but it is not believed to have been a cause of the accident.
The pilot, who survived the crash, spoke of the plane hitting an object during the take-off process. A wheel, which did not belong to the plane, was found by inves- tigators near the scene of the accident. Officials have also said that mechanical problems were not the like- ly cause. A total of 179 passengers and crew were on board, about half of whom were killed by the crash.
With less than week to go before Americans vote for their new president, candidates Al Gore and George W. Bush are frantically campaigning for every vote they can secure. With Bush attending church meet- ings and singing with gospel choirs it seems that he is trying very hard to canvas votes. However, Al Gore has gone on a two-day bus tour starting in Michigan and has managed to pull in crowds with the aid of 80s rock star John Bon Jovi. Gore also plans to enlist the services of soul legend Stevie Wonder and guitarist Santana to help his campaign. Who says that money can’t buy votes !
At this stage Democrat Gore and Republican Bush are neck and neck in the polls with America seemingly evenly split on who to vote for. Can Vice President Gore shake off the tarnished reputation of his boss to take the hot seat from Clinton or will it be Texas Governor Bush moving into The White House ?
The Middle East has seen yet more violence and tragedy this week as the death toll steadily rises in the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Tragically many confrontations between the two sides have left young children the victims of the conflict. One of the latest incidents involved a 14 year old boy who is now brain dead and on life support.
Israeli tanks are still arriving on the West Bank and negotiations between the two sides show no signs of a settlement. Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has defiantly stated “ our people will remain steadfast “ while Israeli leader Ehud Barrack is in the process of forming a coalition government. World leaders, par- ticularly US President Bill Clinton, are still working towards bringing the two sides together although many believe peace is unlikely to be achieved.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has spoken out this week over the effects of film violence on young people. To prove this is not just a war of words the Terminator has demanded a cut in violence in his new film The 6th Day, which is to be rated PG-13 instead of the usual R rating his former offerings received. His change of mind occurred at middle age as; “ when you get over 50 and you have a family, you should broaden out and do other things “, Arnie stated.
As a possible candidate for the 2002 elections for gov- ernor of California, Schwarzenegger has been accused by sceptics as having this sudden change of heart in order to further his political career. Hollywood writer Alix MacGregor said: “ It seems pretty bizarre coming from the man who made his fortune by com- mercialising ultra-violence. “ This softer approach to the screen seems to have had an affect on Tinseltown with Drew Barrymore insisting that the stars of the new £60 m movie Charlie’s Angels should not carry guns.
Kazakhstan has been put back on the map this week with the launch of a 153 ft rocket into space. This joint venture between Russia and America marks the anniversary of Russia’s first rocket launch. This trip is different from that historic venture back in 1961 in that the crew travelling from the Baikanur Cosmodrome will consist of astronauts of mixed nationalities, instead of just one man, the famous Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.
This latest trip should last 4 months with the intrepid explorers travelling in a rocket that has already com- pleted 1,600 trips - a trusty machine we hope !
A military uprising has taken place in Peru with 50-100 soldiers taking over a small town just outside the cap- ital, Lima. A number of hostages were taken but no one was reported injured. Trouble flared the day after the government announced changes in the way the country is run.
While Britain is coming to terms with the BSE crisis, across the Channel France is also having trouble with food. The French food manufacturer Spanghero has been forced to withdraw one and a half tons of its spicy sausages from shops. The sausages were found to be contaminated with listeria.
