I once saw a world map that had the nations divided into 10 regions. This
ostensibly under the "new world order". Does anyone know where I might find
this map on the internet? As I recall, Canada, Mexico and the U.S. were
considered as "one" region; thus, no borders.

Mobile Ads To Hit the Streets Soon

By SKIP WOLLENBERG
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK (AP) _ The advertising industry's latest vehicles
may soon be passing you on Main Street and parking outside
your neighbor's house at night.

Several California-based companies are paying drivers to
wrap their personal cars in ads touting products like ice
cream, juice bars and Internet services.

The driver's job is simple: Drive to and from work, pick
up the kids, run errands _ and be willing to be a traveling
billboard. Some companies are offering free use of a new ad-
wrapped car, others are paying $300 to $400 a month to
allow the wrapping.

Critics call it another example of creeping _ and creepy _
commercialism.

``What's next _ to pay people to have ads tattooed on
their foreheads?'' asked Mark Crispin Miller, a professor
of media ecology at New York University.

The companies say they are giving average folks a chance
to express themselves and cash in on advertisers' mad
scramble to draw attention to their brands amid a crush of
competing messages on billboards and buses as well as radio
and TV.

``There is no reason a person shouldn't be able to
advertise for a product they like,'' said Keith Powers, who
founded San Francisco-based Myfreecar.com in October.

He has matched advertisers with about two dozen drivers in
California and plans to branch out to other major markets.
The company has ads printed on adhesive vinyl that is
applied to a car from bumper to bumper.

Take Linda Morrison's yellow 1999 Volkswagen Beetle, for
example. It's been wrapped since mid-April in advertising
for Mobile Engines, a San Jose, Calif., company that
provides services like movie schedules and reviews for
customers of wireless Web devices.

Morrison, 59, said she avoids wearing commercial names on
her clothes but she likes the attention she gets on her
daily drive down Sunset Boulevard and through Beverly Hills
to her job as a college administrative assistant.

``My car was cute as the dickens before, and the
advertising just makes it cuter,'' she said. The money she
gets for having her car wear the ad covers her monthly auto
loan payments.

Patrick Boyle, chief executive of Mobile Engines, said
cars like Morrison's are inexpensive alternatives to
billboards, which can be hard to come by.

Mark Fernandez, another VW Beetle driver, has spent the
past eight months driving ads for Jamba Juice Co. around
Los Angeles, from the post-production studio where he works
to the coffee houses and comedy clubs where he performs at
night.

The 38-year-old said he's quit honking or yelling at other
drivers since his car took on the San Francisco juice bar
company's ad because he knows anyone who wants to retaliate
will have no trouble finding him.

Three other companies have wrapped cars on the road or are
planning to start soon.

Autowraps Inc., a five-month-old company from San
Francisco, has about 125 cars on the road in New York,
Minneapolis and several California markets, founder and
president Dan Shifrin said. Advertisers include the
insurance site Lowestpremium.com and Dreyers Grand Ice
Cream Inc., which also sells ice cream under the brand name
Edy's.

San Francisco-based Drivead.com and Los Angeles-based
FreeCar.com are also lining up advertisers and drivers.

Powers said about 15,000 drivers have applied to
Myfreecar.com since May, while Shifrin said Autowraps has
more than 17,500 drivers in its database.

The companies look for drivers whose normal commute takes
them through areas where a sizable number of people see
their cars every day. They check driving records, job
history and the car's condition.

Powers also looks for people with the personality to
represent an advertiser. That includes regularly meeting
minimum mileage requirements and keeping the car clean.

Powers said advertisers pay $1,000 to $1,500 a month per
car depending on where the car is being driven, the car
model and the length of the contract. The cars are equipped
with a tracking device to show where and how far they are
traveling so advertisers can be assured they are getting
their money's worth.

But Leslie Savan, a longtime ad critic for The Village
Voice, said she found it depressing that people were
willing to convert their cars into ad vehicles.

``It sort of sad that we can't draw any lines anymore
between having a private life and a life that is up for
sale,'' she said.

Russian Germ Warfare Antidote Gives Kids Smallpox

VLADIVOSTOK, Russia (Reuters) - At least eight children in Russia's
Far East have contracted a mild form of smallpox from discarded
vaccine ampoules which a local clinic kept in case of germ warfare
attack, officials said on Monday.

Few people living today -- even doctors -- have had any experience of
smallpox, which has been officially eradicated worldwide. The last
case of the disease was registered in 1977 in Africa and countries
stopped vaccinating against it in 1980.

Dmitry Maslov, chief local medical inspector, told Reuters the
children's infections did not put their lives in danger and could not
spread to others. NTV commercial television said the young boys and
girls' faces were likely to be scarred for life.

Maslov said doctors in the regional capital Vladivostok had trouble
diagnosing eight children aged six to 12 who had been taken to
hospital with fever and severe rashes.

Their condition was pinned down to smallpox when doctors discovered
that the children had played with glass ampoules they found in the
dustbin of the local epidemiological center.

The center kept dozens of boxes of smallpox vaccine to combat a
possible enemy germ attack, as required by civil defense rules. When
the vaccine expired the medics threw the ampoules away instead of
destroying them, he said.

NTV said discarded boxes were strewn over a large area.

A prosecutor told Reuters officials expected to charge managers of the
epidemiological center with criminal negligence.

Over the last years there have been a number of reported cases of
Russians contracting various diseases, including AIDS, due to alleged
health care workers' negligence.

HOMESCHOOLING GOES MAINSTREAM
How quickly things change. Not long ago, the educational
establishment derided the idea of homeschooling, claiming that mere
parents couldn't teach kids adequately -- after all, education is for
professionals. But now, after homeschool students swept this year's
national spelling bee, the education elites are objecting that these
kids
are too well-educated.

ABU DIS MAY BE HANDED OVER FRIDAY
The Israeli government is weighing handing over the Jerusalem
suburbs of Abu Dis and Eizariya to full Palestinian control on
Friday, when the third West Bank redeployment under the interim
accords is to have taken place, Palestinian sources said yesterday.

E.U. READYING TO RECOGNIZE PALESTINIAN STATE
The European Union is getting ready to recognize a Palestinian

SCIENTISTS MAY RECREATE KILLER FLU VIRUS
An Oxford team is considering the possibility of reconstructing the
1918 influenza virus which killed 20 million people around the world.
The
experiment would have to be done in the strictest possible
containment,
Professor George Brownlee of the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology
in
Oxford, said. Its aim would be to try to discover just what made the
1918 "Spanish flu" so deadly, and to devise better protection against
future flu pandemics.

CHURCHES DEBATE ROLE IN GAY UNIONS
The homosexual rights movement in American religion has its eyes on a

perhaps other kinds of adult, consensual combinations.

Eighth Wonder to be created in Britain

Scientists are building a garden containing three of the world's climate
zones under gigantic geodesic domes -- the highest and largest
free-standing scaffolding structure on the planet.

June 19, 2000, 03:06 PM
LONDON (Reuters) - Tucked away in a tiny corner of southwestern England
on a peninsula jutting out into the sea, scientists are trying to create
the Eighth Wonder of the World. In a huge quarry crater, they are
building a garden containing three of the world's climate zones under
gigantic geodesic domes -- the highest and largest free-standing
scaffolding structure on the planet.

When the Eden Project is completed in the spring of 2001, it will house
more than 80,000 plants in a cathedral-sized rainforest dripping with
tropical vegetation, in lush Mediterranean groves overflowing with olive
and citrus plants and in the native flora of Cornwall or the Atlantic
woodlands.

The size of 35 football pitches, it will be the world's biggest
greenhouse -- large enough to contain Big Ben or the leaning Tower of
Pisa under its domed ceiling.

Adam and Eve will be missing but a hissing serpent will remind visitors
of the consequences of global warming.

"We have something unique," said Professor Sir Ghillean Prance, a former
director of Britain's Royal Botanical Gardens and an adviser to the Eden
Project.

Dr Tony Kendle, a restoration ecologist at Reading University who has
also worked on the project, describes it as a showcase for conservation
and biodiversity.

Hidden in quarry

On the winding country roads of Cornwall on England's southern-most tip,
the geodesic structures -- bigger than the Millennium Dome in London or
the City Palace in Berlin -- are hidden from view in the former deep
china clay quarry and protected from the coastal winds.

The massive domes, which are due to be completed by September, seem to
sprout up mysteriously from the harsh landscape as visitors approach
what is still a building site.

Despite its unfinished state, the Eden Project, a charity and
educational institute, has already attracted up to 4,000 visitors a day
during a recent holiday weekend.

Organisers hope to lure 75,000 visitors a year when the 80 million pound
($121 million) project is completed next year, giving a big boost to
Cornwall, which has been designated one of the poorest areas in the
European Union.

"It's a unique after-use of a quarry," said Neal Barnes, the
construction facilities manager, explaining the unusual problems the
site and structure posed.

Before even beginning to build the domes, construction crews shifted 1.8
million tonnes of earth and designed a drainage and recycling system to
handle the 20,000 bathfuls of water a day that come on to the site.

The project founders selected architects Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners,
creators of London's international train terminal at Waterloo station,
to design the covered domes or "biomes".

The structure spans 110 metres (361 ft) at its widest point with no
internal supports. The builders chose a material called ETFE (ethyl
tetra fluoro ethylene) to cover each hexagonal panel because it is
lighter than glass and not degraded by sunlight.

"It is extremely strong, very lightweight and more transparent than
glass, anti-static and self-cleaning," said Barnes. "It is also expected
to last at least 25 years."

Three layers of ETFE are welded together at the edges to form huge
pillows that are inflated two metres (6.5 feet) deep. Each pillow is
strong enough to hold the weight of a rugby team and bigger than a
London taxi cab.

Brainchild of scientists

As inspiring as the structures are, the real focus of the Eden Project
is the tens of thousands of plants they will contain. The project's
mission is to promote an understanding of the importance of plants and
their relationship to humans.

It was the brainchild of scientists Philip McMillan Browse, Peter Thoday
and Tim Smit (eds: correct) who were working on the restoration of the
lost gardens of Heligan in Cornwall.

Over countless pints of beer in country pubs they hatched the idea.

It was originally designed to attract more tourists to the rural area,
economically blighted by the loss of local industry and increasingly
dependent on vacationers who flock to its unspoiled beaches and
countryside.

Against the odds and without a formal board or bureaucratic committees,
the original triumvirate and a dedicated team secured a 37.5 million
pound grant from Britain's Millennium Commission in October 1998 and
were on their way.

In contrast to the Millennium Dome -- the 758 million pound highly
criticised London attraction that has had difficulty enticing tourists
-- Eden's team has been taken aback by the stream of visitors to the
building site.

The Eden Project will close temporarily in September to allow the
scientists to begin transferring the plants they have been growing for
the past two years in a nearby nursery in preparation for the opening
next spring.

When the human tropics, warm temperate and temperate biomes -- plus a
visitor centre, restaurant, outdoor amphitheatre, classrooms and a host
of educational ploys incorporating science with theatre, art and music
-- are complete, the Eden team hope visitors will be inspired by what
they find. 2000 Reuters
