Today's Headlines: Avian Flu - We're Not Worried! and BF's Women Soccer Refs

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

I saw in on the front page of this morning's L'Observateur Paalga that the Minister of Animal Resources is officially reassuring the public that there's no need to worry about avian flu. "Pas de panique, le virus est sous contrôle", or "No panic, the virus is under control."

I might have felt better if the accompanying photo didn't show four young men handling chicken carcasses without gloves or face masks.





On a happier note, the sports page had an article that the first three women soccer referees have just been certified. The FIFA website has a directory of women referees by country. (Although funnily enough the web address contains the word "men.") Cameroon and Russia have the most, tied at 9. Bonne chance, ladies!

I wish I had the photo - I suppose I could one of my intrepid IT colleagues scan it - because you'd be spitting more than your coffee I suspect!
