    Missile Defense

Technology has always found its greatest consumer in a nation's war and defense efforts. Since the last attempts at a "Star Wars" defense system, has technology changed considerably enough to make the latest Missile Defense initiatives more successful? Can such an application of science be successful? Is a militarized space inevitable, necessary or impossible?

He gained access to Blair's inner sanctum through his friendship with the late Labour leader John Smith, a frequent visitor to Levy's house in Totteridge, north London ....

A homebody, his centre of gravity is his wife Gilda and their two children. Most of his deal-making takes place over the heimisch cuisine of Gilda. Tony Blair has been a regular diner at Gilda's table, as have captains of industry. `Michael lives a very ethnic life. It's kitchen life, it ain't dining room life,' says Rea. .....

What Michael does is he picks people, trains them, then backs them. He is the greatest salesman I have ever met in my life. He would definitely be able to sell sand to the Arabs. ..,1414,561036,00.html

Budget | Election | USA

"" Opinion polls show that the Republicans score better on security issues than the Democrats, but worse on the economy and corporate governance. A poll published at the end of last week also showed that by a two-to-one margin, voters wanted candidates in the forthcoming elections to focus on the economy. Democratic candidates around the country are doing their best to maximise their advantage in this way. They are keen to draw attention to the rapidly rising budget deficits forecast over the next few years, blaming Mr Bush’s tax cuts for the rich. The Republicans, as they always have, accuse the Democrats of wanting to spend too much.

Communication glitches on 42nd Street

.. a production especially assembled for Moscow, with principals and production team -- including two stars and the director/choreographer of the show's recent award-winning New York revival -- chorus line, conductor and key orchestra members all drawn from the elite of North American musical theater.

Before saying more about the show and those who perform it, however, a few words are in order concerning criticism of Moscow's "42nd Street" in a Washington Post article by Susan Glasser that was printed Tuesday in The Moscow Times.

Toward the end of the article, Glasser, who attended a VIP preview -- really a final dress rehearsal -- of "42nd Street" last Friday, admitted that "the American cast and Russian [sic] orchestra proved to be first-rate." But the story's real focus was an account of the near-obscenities in a draft Russian translation of the show's dialogue intended to be relayed by headphones to its audience's non-English speakers, and in quoting the complaints of the American production team and detailing the evening's technical glitches.
