TIME Nov. 26,1984 art. ETHIOPIA The Land of the Dead ..at
least 6 million people live at the brink of starvation. Relief workers expect that almost a million
Ethiopians may die this year alone in what could become "the
worst human disaster in recent history." After ten years of
drought and civil war, twelve of the country's 14 provinces have
been laid waste by a famine of biblical proportions. More than 40%
of the country's 42 million people are malnourished, and 2.2 million have left
their homes to wander in search of food.
22,1990 art. AFRICA Death
by Starvation In Ethiopia upwards of 4.5
more than four times the number wiped out by the great famine of
1984-85, may starve this year if food relief is not provided--and
soon. In Sudan, where as many as a quarter of a million people died of
hunger in 1987-88, the most dire estimates suggest that 3 million could
suffer the same fate by the middle of this decade. Once again the
world may see those sickening images: skeletal children too
weak to swat away the flies that swarm around their eyes; old people slumped
against herding sticks, too weary to take another step.
August 10, 1991 p. A3 DAUGHTER TESTIFIES SLAIN MOTHER
BEGGED FOR LIFE ...Kelly Doyle testified she was
awakened by a loud noise, which prosecutors believe was Sheila Doyle's car
lurching forward and striking a red children's wagon that struck
the garage wall, as Tyler (her killer) struggled to get her out of the
car that night... She heard her mother say "Please don't
hurt me," She got up and walked into the family's living room and
again heard her mother say "Please don't hurt me," and
then heard a car door slam... "I heard the man say in an
ordering sound... something about a car," Kelly Doyle said. "I
heard my mother scream. I heard a big bang." Prosecutors
said the second slamming door was the sound of Tyler closing the
car's trunk on Doyle, whom he allegedly forced into the trunk and
ordered to remain quiet, but shot her in the head after she screamed. Kelly Doyle
said she "went back to her room, put her headset back on and
lay down". A short time later, she again got up and
found her father, William Doyle, on the telephone with police, reporting that
his wife was missing. William Doyle, another daughter
and a son also had been asleep.

their minds in Bogota" -Anne Proenza World Press Review, Oct 1994 (Vol 41. No 10). pp.
20,21 Topic Columbia Last year Bogota reported an average of
four cases of poisoning by burundanga, a drug with side-effects that include
hallucinations, memory loss, and loss of will. Criminals find it
ideal for their purposes. They can get a victim to do their
bidding, then they can rest easy knowing the victim will remember nothing. In one
instance, a couple under the influence of burundanga spent the
evening withdrawing money from cash machines and handing it over
to thieves. In other cases, victims have been raped, kidnapped, used as drug
couriers---yet they remembered nothing once the drug wore off. The name
burundanga actually refers to either of two drugs---scopolamine
or benzodiazpine. The drugs act directly on the central
nervous system, blocking neurotransmission and preventing memorization.
"The effect of the drug on the brain is comparable to that
of a power cut on a computer." It leaves the victim "totally
suggestible" but fully awake and calm. Burundanga is
administered orally, in powder form, and is soluble, odorless,
and tasteless. This makes it perfect for criminal use. The only protection it to
watch what you eat or drink.

> RARE METEOR STORM MAY BE
Sky-watchers may get a once-in-a-generation chance to see a
spectacular show of shooting stars next month. The Leonid stream
of meteors, which the Earth passes through around November 17
each year, is predicted to be at its 33-year peak this time
around. The stream originates from Comet 55P/Tempel-Tuttle, which
circles the sun every 33 years. As with all comets, it leaves a
trail of debris in its path. When the Earth passes through one of
those streams, a meteor shower results.
