The spreading mini markets nearby small shops (warung kecil) especially inDenpasar seemed devastating. A number of small shop owners have stated theiruneasy situation. “I use to sell essentials yet now my goods to sell are less. Minimarkets can give cheaper prices and we small shop owners felt kicked out andignored,” one unnamed shop owner at Nusa Kambangan Street, Dauh Puri,stated last Saturday (21/5).

The mini market that has lowered their in-come this time is an Alfa Midi around the area.Apparently this mini market was sealed in themorning by Police Civil Service yet openedagain in the afternoon. Another shop ownerMadame Kadek who’s shop in front of the minimarket also stated her uneasy situation. “I useto sell essentials too but now no longer. Now Ionly sell meals like nasi campur, tipat santokand rujak. Others like soap, shampoo and aquaare no longer an interest. We can only surren-der in this mini market spread as governmentitself was never clear. Government should’velooked over small shops and traditional mar-kets,” she stated.

Other example was a small shop in the eastof Indomaret at Tukad Yeh Aya Street, Renon.The shop owner seemed quiet waiting forbuyers yet hardly there was. “We are veryworried of this situation. I use to can get in-come for my kids to go to university, nowthe situation has changed, empty and we loss

the competition,” stated the owner. She alsoplans to rent the place for something elserather than seeing her shop empty.

It is also found out, the short distanced minimarkets were also a game done by the villageofficials. According to Madame Rita, ownerof a shop nearby Alfa Midi, Tukad Yeh AyaStreet, the building was just being bought sothey can get building permit then with thegame going on it started being a businessplace. “At first we were suspicious it will bea mini market yet village officials will not signthe building permit agreement. Yet it becamea business place in the end,” she explained.

Since the existence of the mini market, hershop’s income have gone really down fromthe essentials and so she completed her shopwith menus like ice drinks and fruit saladrujak. “If the goods are not variety then it’llbe really hard to get income. We only can sur-render, at least we get something to live onwith,” she concluded.

At this time Gianyar has at least360 cubic meters waste each day inthe cities and sub district markets.Yet in general in TPA Temesi itreaches 450 cubic meters each dayand doubles on religious days.

Even so, only nine trucks (DAMTrucks and three Amrol units) pro-vided with 430 people working forgrounds and cleanliness. It’s ironicthe fact that new vehicles of carsAvanza and Innova provided forRegency government where ninefor House of Representatives, yetDKP this year only got 1 truck ex-tra when actually they worked hardin keeping the Adipura Trophy forGianyar.

Waste Increasing, Facility Limited

Head of Gianyar DKP, Ir. IdaBagus Kesawa, last Wendesday(18/5) did not decline the limitation.Yet in between the limitation theagency keeps on their work by hav-ing overnight shifts in keeping theregency clean. Meanwhile the pro-

gram to separate inorganic and or-ganic waste hasn’t been appliedproperly also due to the limited fa-cility. “Don’t think that first, for thegeneral wastes itself has a limitedfacility, how can we do it sepa-rately?” he concluded. (dar)

Mangupura (Bali Post)—Bali tourism is not only able

to attract domestic tourists butalso foreign tourists. As a result,no less provinces of Indonesiatake advantage of this island ofthe gods to boost their tourist vis-its to their regions. Papua andWest Papua, for instance, pro-moted their tourism in Bali todraw more visitors.

Division Head of Promotionand Marketing of Papua Culturaland Tourism Services, NelaYembise, said that tourists visitin the period of 2010 reached fivethousand people. Meanwhile, thetarget of this year was 7 thousandtourist visits.

“We do direct promotion in themalls throughout Indonesia, in-cluding in Bali. It is intended toinvite the perpetrators of tourismbusiness such as travel agencies,hotels and airlines so they couldoffer our package tours,” re-vealed Yembise on Saturday(May 21).

Nela recognized the rate oftourist visit to Papua did not in-crease significantly as con-strained by transportation infra-structure that made difficult toreach the existing tourist sites inthe region. “The travel expendi-ture becomes more expensive dueto such transportation obstacle.Undeniably, it is also an impor-

INTEREST of young generation to get involved the agricultural sector seems to be gettinglower. This phenomenon can be seen from the minimal graduates of senior high school/voca-tional high school who enroll for the student selection and admission to state-run higher educa-tion (SMNPTN) in the study programs existing in the Faculty of Agriculture, Udayana Univer-sity. Strategies to provide full scholarships for prospective students wishing to continue theirstudy to Faculty of Agriculture were unable to increase the excitement of young generation togo into the agricultural sector. It is indicated by the fact that faculty categorized to have rareenthusiasts was only occupied by no more than 60 percent of the quota provided. Rector ofUdayana University, Prof. Dr. I Made Bakta, said the matter to Bali Post on Sunday (May 22).

Bakta observed the conferment ofscholarships was quite helpful to in-crease the number of students in theFaculty of Agriculture. However, thepolicy was unable to make all the‘seats’ allocated in the faculty fullconsidering the number of prospec-tive students enrolling in the selec-tion remained below the specified ca-pacity. “For each study program inthe Faculty of Agriculture, we haveallocated 72 chairs for new students.However, we are incapable of fillingthem entirely. At best, it will reach60 percent of the quota provided. Inthis academic year, we expect thedemand to increase,” said Baktawhile adding that a number of other

studies in the Faculty of AgriculturalTechnology, Faculty of Agricultureand the Faculty of Letters also lackedof applicants.

Considering the number of enthu-siasts in the Faculty of Agriculture wasvery low, he said, starting the academicyear 2009/2010 Udayana Universityofficially ‘diminished’ the number ofcourses existing in the faculty. Origi-nally, the Faculty of Agriculture,Udayana University, had six coursesof study namely Department of SoilScience, Agricultural Cultivation,Plant Disease, Social Economics ofAgriculture, Agricultural Extensionand Landscaping Architecture.

Since the six courses had rare en-

thusiasts, Udayana University then is-sued a policy to merge the six coursesinto two courses of study namely theDepartment of Agribusiness originat-ing in the Social Economics of Agri-culture and Agricultural Extension aswell as Department of AgriculturalAgroecotechnology originating in theSoil Science, Agricultural Cultiva-tion, Pests and Plant Diseases andLandscaping Architecture. “Admit-tedly, the interest of senior highschool graduates and the equivalentto continue their study to Faculty ofAgriculture is very low. Perhaps, thisphenomenon indicates that younggeneration is reluctant to farm,” hesaid regretfully.

A legislator of Raja AmpatHouse, Yos Awom, said thatPapua had the third best maritimetourism in the world, namely RajaAmpat located in West Papua.“He came to Bali with a missionto attract foreign tourists and do-mestic tourists to visit this exoticdestination,” he said.

According to him, West Papuatargeted the tourist visit to reach4 thousand in 2011 from 2 thou-sand tourists in 2010. “With theallocation of promotional fundworth IDR 16 billion, we expectthe tourist visit could increasesignificantly,” he said. He furtherexplained that Papua Province of-fered a traditional life style of lo-cal society in Wamena. For in-stance, local people still used pe-nis sheath in their daily life.

Meanwhile, Subdivision HeadV of the Tourism Destination Pro-motion, Ministry of Culture andTourism, Diah Widiati, did hopethat tourism promotion of Papuaand West Papua in the Bali tour-ism gateway would be able to in-crease the number of tourist ar-rivals to Indonesia.

Security forces broke up thecrowd after several hours of lettingthem besiege the embassy. But Presi-dent Ali Abdullah Saleh’s balking atthe U.S.-backed deal threatened towreck hopes for a peaceful resolu-tion to the chaos that has consumedthis key Arab nation, where hun-dreds of thousands have protestedfor three months, defying a bloodycrackdown, to demand his ouster.

JOPLIN, Mo. – A massive tor-nado that blasted a four-mile pathacross southwestern Missourislammed into this city with cata-clysmic force, ripping into a hospi-tal, upending cars and leaving onlya forest of splintered tree trunksbehind where entire neighborhoodsonce stood.

An unknown number were killedin Joplin on Sunday night, and offi-cials struggling to communicatewithout power and cell phone ser-vice were leery of putting a hardfigure on a death toll they fearedwould rise after daybreak.

Asked about a report that 24people had died, city spokeswomanLynn Onstot said grimly that offi-cials were “afraid it may be more.... Our fear is that’s a low number.”The Missouri National Guardplanned to search for the injuredthroughout the night.

“You see pictures of World WarII, the devastation and all that withthe bombing. That’s really what itlooked like,” said Kerry Sachetta,the principal of a flattened JoplinHigh School. “I couldn’t even makeout the side of the building. It wastotal devastation in my view.

Yemen leader again balksat leaving; tension grows

If the mediation collapses, manyfear further deterioration of the po-litical situation, including an esca-lation of armed conflict betweenSaleh’s loyalists and military unitsthat have joined the opposition.

At nightfall Sunday, tensions werehigh in Sanaa, the capital. Pro-gov-ernment gunmen and soldiers lockeddown main streets around the capitalwith roadblocks, while tens of thou-sands of anti-Saleh demonstratorswere massed at their protest camp ina central Sanaa square, worried that anew crackdown could ensue.

Saleh refused twice before to signthe agreement. But this weekend ithad appeared he was finally relent-ing, under intense pressure from hisallies, the United States and Gulf Arabcountries that mediated the accord.

Missouri officials fear dozens dead in tornadolast month.

Onstot said the twister — believedto be between one-half to three-quar-ters of a mile wide — was on theground for nearly four miles. It hit ahospital packed with patients and acommercial area including a HomeDepot construction store, numeroussmaller businesses and restaurantsand a grocery store. Jasper Countyemergency management directorKeith Stammer said an estimated2,000 buildings were damaged in thiscity of about 50,000 people some 160miles south of Kansas City.

Among the worst hit locations inJoplin was St. John’s RegionalMedical Center, which appeared tosuffer a direct hit from a tornado.The staff had just a few moments’

notice to hustle patients into hall-ways before the storm struck themultistory building, blowing outhundreds of windows and leavingthe facility useless.

In the parking lot, a helicopterlay crushed on its side, its rotorstorn apart and windows smashed.Nearby, a pile of cars lay crumpledinto a single mass of twisted metal.Matt Sheffer dodged downed powerlines, trees and closed streets tomake it to his dental office acrossfrom the hospital.

Army chief of staff GeorgeToisutta and oil tycoon ArifinPanigoro were banned from contest-ing the vote for chairman, as wasoutgoing boss Nurdin Halid, whohas been tainted by corruption.

Panigoro started a breakaway Indo-nesian Premier League in January, in-troducing privately-owned clubs in-stead of the PSSI model where teamsare funded by regional governments.

FIFA is expected to decide on anysanctions against Indonesia at its ex-ecutive committee meeting on May 30.

“We could hold a local league, butwe could not play in any of FIFA’sevents. I don’t know how long (a sus-pension) would last, but it depends onthe association’s commitment to solv-ing its problems,” Driyono said.

Indonesia is 130th in the FIFArankings — below Ethiopia andYemen — and has never reached theWorld Cup finals.

recently, 6,000 of a total of 8,000 li-censes are overlapped in the field. There-fore, we will form a special team to re-view the licenses and solve the prob-lem,” said the minister.

Meanwhile, Finance Minister AgusMartowardojo said verification and auditson the 8,000 mining licenses were neededto ensure that all mining companies wereoperating well and in accordance with ex-isting regulations, including regulations onpreserving the environment.

The minister also expressed hope thatthe review would improve coordinationamong the central and local governmentsas well as improve the investment climatein Indonesia.

Lovina TourismRivaled by villas,

budget hotels slumpBali Post

SINGARAJA - Widespread devel-opment of foreign-owned villas on thenorth coast of Buleleng seems to in-fluence the occupancy rate of budgethotels in the Lovina and other touristresorts in Buleleng.

As consequence, many hotelsoriginally owned by local residents areeventually sold to foreigners becausethe formers are no longer able to man-age.

Frequent changes of ownershiphappening to hotels in Lovina and thesurrounding areas cause the hotel re-naming so often. Every new ownerrenames the hotel in accordance withhis desire.

Even, there is a hotel in the regionwhose name has been changed up tofive times. Apart from the change ofownership, the name change is alsocarried out by other reasons, such asthe old name is considered not profit-able, so needs replacing with a sale-able new name that can provide ben-efits.

A tourism business perpetrator inLovina tourist resort said that Lovinahad slumped since 1997. Such condi-tion was then aggravated by the Balibombings. Continuous decline in tour-ist visits caused the hotels in Lovinato get no guests. As a result, hotel own-ers who were mostly local residentswere forced to sell their hotel proper-ties to investors from outside Bali oroverseas.

Actually, before 2000, hotels inLovina were able to compete againststar hotels. However, the budget ho-tels were now on the verge of extinc-tion because they did not get manyguests as ever before. A budget hotelin the resort only had an average oc-cupancy rate of 10 percent a month.

“The occupied rooms were sold atvery cheap price. Otherwise, budget

hotels will not be able to draw tour-ists,” said one of the hotel owners inLovina.

Information obtained from a num-ber of budget hotel owners mentionedthat rampant construction of beachsidevillas by foreign nationals was one ofthe causes of decline in occupancy rateamong the budget hotels. Tourists pre-ferred to stay in villas spreading outalong the beach in Buleleng.

Moreover, the management of vil-las had a better promotion and mar-keting system via the Internet orthrough direct overseas promotion. So,tourists arriving at the airport wereimmediately picked up by villas anddirectly taken to the accommodationbecause they had booked through theInternet.

“These villas finally vanquish thebudget hotels. Additionally, mostowners of those villas are foreigners,so their marketing is more intensive.Meanwhile, the budget hotels are nowjust waiting for those who are unableto book room in villas and we areforced to sell our rooms at lower priceto attract customers,” said a budgethotel owner in Lovina.

In the meantime, Chairman of theIndonesian Hotels and RestaurantsAssociation (PHRI) of BulelengChapter, Dewa Ketut Suardipa, did notdeny if the occupancy rate of budgethotels in Lovina and the surroundingareas never increased, whereas Lovinawas formerly known to have a lot ofbudget hotels.

Unfortunately, the budget hotelswere vanquished by many villas builtnear the beach and in countryside.Likewise, large number of villas alsohad an impact on the tourist arrivalsto the region of Lovina. “The numberof villas on the coastal regions andrural areas also causes Lovina not busyas ever before,” he said.

LONDON – Debt worries ham-mered European markets on Mon-day, knocking both the euro and re-gional shares down 1 percent whilealso weighing heavily on world eq-uities, sending emerging marketsdown nearly 2 percent.

Investors were digesting a blockof bad news about the euro zone cri-sis. Following Fitch Ratings cut ofGreece’s debt ratings by threenotches on Friday, pushing thecountry’s debt deeper into junk sta-tus, rival Standard & Poor’s cut itsoutlook for Italy to “negative” from“stable” on Saturday.

Spanish voters added to the angst,becoming the latest electorate to pun-ish sitting European governments forthe current economic climate.

The ruling Socialists were hit bystinging losses in local elections andnow face a balancing act betweenvoter anger over sky-high unemploy-ment and investor demands for strictausterity measures.

“There’s a risk of everything be-coming excessively politicized whichwill be detrimental for the economy,”said Carlos Berzosa, professor of ap-plied economy at Madrid’sComplutense University.

Investors reacted to the variousevents with a burst of risk aversion,shifting funds into U.S. governmentdebt, gold and the dollar.

The euro fell, for example, to arecord low against the generally safe-haven Swiss franc.

It lost around 1 percent against thedollar and was down 1.2 percentagainst the yen.

Worries about some form of debtrestructuring by Greece was a key el-ement of the selloff.

PARIS – The threat of ash from an Icelandic volcano shutting European airspace hitairline shares on Monday.

Shares in German airlineLufthansa plunged by 4.56 per-cent while the DAX slid 1.5 per-cent.

Air France-KLM fell morethan four percent at the openingof trading, the biggest loser onthe Paris stock market.

Shares in International AirlineGroup (IAG), the owner of Brit-ish Airways and Iberia, plunged

3.55 percent in early tradingwhile London was down 1.34percent overall.

Shares in Scandinavian airlineSAS dropped 3.02 percent whileStockholm’s exchange was down1.55 percent.

The Grimsvoetn volcano be-gan erupting late on Saturday,with the first ash expected to be-gin hitting Europe on Tuesday.

In Apri l 2010 Iceland’sEyjaf joel l volcano erupted,spewing a massive cloud of ashthat caused the planet’s biggestairspace shutdown since WorldWar II with more than 100,000flights cancelled and eight mil-lion passengers stranded.

The costs in terms of lost rev-enue and compensation to pas-sengers were a body blow to the

airline industry, particularly inEurope.

Denmark has already closedairspace over Greenland andNorway said i t wi l l cancelf l ights on Monday to thecountry’s Arctic archipelago ofSvalbard.

France’s junior transport sec-retary Thierry Mariani warnedon Monday that flights would becancelled if an ash cloud fromIceland’s Grimsvoetn volcanoblew over Europe.

“One thing that is certain that if Europe is affected then

f l ights wi l l be cancel led,”Mariani said on Europe 1 radio,adding that it was too early tosay for certain if it would.

“If the ash isn’t noxious thenthe planes will fly. If the ash isnoxious or presents a risk, thenthe planes won’t fly,” he added.

Concerns that the ash coulddamage aircraft engines led au-thorities to cancel flights as aprecaution.

“The priority should alwaysremain safety, without of courseabusing the principle of precau-tion,” said Mariani.

Moody’s warns Japan recessionis negative for rating


TOKYO – Japan’s return to reces-sion and a bigger-than-expected slumpin first-quarter economic growth arenegative for its credit rating, Moody’sInvestors Service said, warning that adelay in recovery could warrant addi-tional fiscal and monetary stimulus.

The triple blow of the March earth-quake, tsunami and nuclear crisis hasnudged Japan into recession and ledto a surprisingly deep 0.9 percent con-traction in January-March, whichMoody’s said, was negative forJapan’s rating and made it increasinglyurgent for Prime Minister Naoto Kanto compile a second extra budget.

“Reconstruction and relief expen-ditures will eventually lead to a re-bound in economic growth later thisyear and in 2012,” Moody’s said in astatement on Monday.

“But the scale of the loss in outputand income caused by the earthquakemay already have lowered the futuregrowth trajectory of the Japaneseeconomy, thwarting Japan’s long-termgrowth rate, which is currently around1 percent,” it said.

While the shock from power short-ages will be temporary, the risk ofJapanese companies permanently los-ing global market share due to currentsupply chain disruptions is more dam-aging, Moody’s said.

“Should the rebound in Japan’seconomy be weaker than forecast ordelayed entirely, additional actions byboth the Ministry of Finance and Bankof Japan may be needed,” the ratingsagency said in a statement.

Japan is facing its worst crisis sinceWorld War Two after the magnitude9.0 earthquakes and a deadly tsunamibattered its northeast coast on March11, leaving about 25,000 dead or miss-

ing and crippling a nuclear powerplant.The economy shrank in January-March at nearly double the pace fore-cast by markets and is expected to con-tract again in the second quarter assupply chain disruptions and powershortages hit factory output.

The Bank of Japan eased monetarypolicy days after the quake but hasstood pat since then on the view —shared by many economists — whichgrowth will pick up from around au-tumn when supply constraints ease.

But the central bank has expressedits readiness to ease policy further ifthe damage from the quake is biggerthan expected and threatens Japan’sreturn to a moderate recovery.

The government, for its part, passedthrough parliament a 4 trillion yen ($48billion) first emergency budget for im-mediate disaster relief and is now eye-ing a second extra budget for recon-struction, which Moody’s said will“likely need to be much larger than thefirst one.”Kan has signaled that the sec-ond extra budget would be quite big,while Economics Minister KaoruYosano said reconstruction may costup to 15 trillion yen.

But any progress in compiling thesecond extra budget would be slow asKan needs cooperation from opposi-tion parties, which control the upperhouse, to pass necessary legislationthrough parliament.

Another uncertainty overshadow-ing Japan’s fiscal outlook is the extentto which the government will share theburden of Tokyo Electric Power’s(9501.T) rising quake-related liabili-ties, Moody’s said.Japan’s public debt,at double the size of its $5 trillioneconomy, is the biggest among majorindustrialized economies, limiting roomfor additional fiscal stimulus and trig-gering warnings from ratings agencies.

But lawmakers are hesitant aboutraising taxes, particularly the politi-cally sensitive sales tax, for fear ofscaring voters away, even as the costof quake reconstruction adds to theheavy burden of spending for socialwelfare in a rapidly aging society.

Moody’s warned in February thatit might cut Japan’s Aa2 rating — itsthird highest rating — if the govern-ment fell short of crafting comprehen-sive tax reform to fix the country’s tat-tered finances.

Debt woes hammereuro and world stocks

If Greece were to restructure itsdebt that could prompt Ireland andPortugal to follow with debt restruc-turing of their own, Adrian Foster,head of financial markets research forAsia-Pacific for Rabobank Interna-tional in Hong Kong, said in a re-search note.

“It is difficult to imagine themproceeding with economically (andpolitically) painful fiscal austeritywhilst Greece gets debt forgive-ness,” he said.

European shares suffered the samefate as the euro, with the FTSEurofirst300 index selling of 1.3 percent.

“It’s more than Greece now. Thisis more a reflection of the inability ofthe EU to sort out anything, and thatmakes people worry beyond Greece,”said Lothar Mentel, chief investmentofficer at Octopus Investments.

Risk aversion spread beyondEurope. World stocks as measuredby MSCI were down more than 1percent.

It was particularly hit by emerg-ing markets losses. The MSCIemerging market stock index wasdown more than 2 percent, for a yearto date loss of more than 3 percent.

Emerging markets, despite thestrong economic condition that someof them enjoy, are still seen as rela-tively risky investments and there-fore sell off when sentiment turnscautious.

Rihanna and Taylor Swift were two of the key winners at the Bill-board Music Awards, which returned after a five-year hiatus with amajor dose of star power, featuring Beyonce, U2, the Black EyedPeas — even First Lady Michelle Obama.

Like many other awards shows, the three-hour Billboard Awardsserved more as a promotional vehicle for today’s top pop stars than atrophy presentation. The show was packed with performances — apiano-levitating Cee Lo Green, a scantily clad Rihanna on “S&M”joined by Britney Spears, a much-bleeped Lil Wayne with Mary J.Blige, and Neil Diamond leading the audience in a sing-a-long to“Sweet Caroline” and “America.”

Among Rihanna’s wins were for radio artist of the year and topfemale artist. Swift won the evening’s first award, as top album artist,behind the multimillion sales for “Speak Now.” She also won topcountry artist.

“The impact of an album is all determined by the fans,” she toldthe audience when she picked up her first. “You’ve just given meanother reason to be completely in love with you.” Other award win-ners included Justin Bieber, Lady Antbellum and the Black Eyed Peas.

Beyonce received a special “Millennium” Award for her careerachievements: The29-year-old phenom-enon was lauded in avideo by an array oflegends and luminar-ies, including StevieWonder, BarbaraStreisand, Bono,Lady Gaga andMichelle Obama.

“This is a momentI have to soak in be-cause it’s gonna be —and it is — one of thebest moments of mylife,” said Beyonceafter getting theaward from hermother, TinaKnowles. Beyoncealso performed hernew song, “Run theWorld (Girls).”

U2 was also hon-ored for their block-buster “360” tour asthe top touring act of2010, while Diamondreceived Billboard’“Icon” award.

Pop provocateur Lady Gaga, pictured here in Cannes, unveils her sec-ond full-length album this week, three years after taking the music worldby storm — but while sales will likely be huge, early reviews are mixed.

Lady Gaga hatches new album, to mixed reviewsGermanotta — caused a storm byturning up inside a giant translucentegg at the music industry’s annualGrammys awards show.

She also raised eyebrows thisweekend when, during a televisionperformance of the song on Satur-day Night Live, she simulated giv-ing birth as the finale to the song,surrounded by her writhing dancers.

“I want to celebrate and share‘Born This Way’ with my little mon-sters in a special way that’s neverbeen done before,” Gaga said of therelease of excerpts on her in-game“GagaVille” farm last week. Her“little monsters” are the legions offans who worship the star, whosehit singles from her first album,

2008’s “The Fame,” included “BadRomance,” “Paparazzi” and “PokerFace.”

Gaga has sold over 15 millionalbums and 51 million singlesworldwide, won five Grammys andwas included in Time’s list of themost influential people and the top10 of Forbes’ world’s “100 MostPowerful Women,” her websitesays.

Compared by some to chame-leon-like pop legends David Bowieand Madonna, she has rocketed intothe pop stratosphere despite onlyhaving made one full-length album,“The Fame” in 2008, followed by2009’s eight-track “The FameMonster.”

NEW YORK – The reengineered “Pirates of the Caribbean” se-quel “On Stranger Tides” found its smoothest sailing overseas, whereit took in a record $256.3 million at the international box office, ac-cording to studio estimates Sunday.

Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow. “Chi-cago” director Rob Marshall tookthe helm from Gore Verbinski, whodirected the trilogy. Penelope Cruzand Ian McShane introduce newcharacters.

It was a risky reboot consider-ing the popularity of the previous“Pirates” films. The last, 2007’s “AtWorld’s End,” opened with $114.7million.

But “At World’s End” was alsobadly reviewed and disappointingto much of its audience. For Disney,

which has expansive merchandisingand theme park tie-ins to “Pirates ofthe Caribbean,” it’s a crucial franchise.The first three movies earned a com-bined $2.7 billion worldwide.

“The whole play of this particularmovie was based on a worldwide re-lease because of our feeling of howstrong the international marketplacewould be,” said Chuck Viane, head ofdistribution at Disney. “Johnny is notjust a domestic star. Johnny is an in-ternational star.”

Viane said the result vindicated thefranchise’s new look, that audiences“loved the rebooted attitude.” Vianedidn’t comment on whether this meanta subsequent fifth film, but that seemsextremely likely. Producer JerryBruckheimer already has a script inthe works.

Earliest mammals sniffed their way to smartsa world of information dominatedto an unprecedented degree byodors and scents,” report research-ers led by Timothy B. Rowe, a pa-leontologist at the University ofTexas.

“If I had to tell a freshman classwhat it means to become a mam-mal, it means to become a superbsmeller,” Rowe said in a telephoneinterview.

Enlargement of the brain’ssmell-sensing region was followedby upgrades in the brain areas thatdeal with touch sensitivity from

Among mammals, today’s hu-mans have traded away some of thatability to smell for improved visionand hearing, Rowe observed, but westill have close companions calleddogs who heavily exploit the senseof smell.

As the mammal brain evolved,the area involved in sensory re-sponse “underwent particularlyspectacular development,” said R.

A flash flood is seen in the centre of the Austrlian city of Brisbane. Sea levels are set to rise by up to ametre within a century due to global warming, a new Australian report said Monday as it warned thiscould make “once-a-century” coastal flooding much more common.

SYDNEY – Sea levels are set to rise by up to a metre within a centurydue to global warming, a new Australian report said Monday as it warnedthis could make “once-a-century” coastal flooding much more common.

Meteorology and academics, somejudgments, including on sea levels,were his own. “I expect the magnitudeof global average sea-level rise in 2100compared to 1990 to be in the range of0.5 to 1.0 metre,” Steffen said in hispreface to “The Critical Decade”.

He said while this assessment washigher than that of the Intergovernmen-tal Panel for Climate Change in 2007,which was under 0.8m, it was not in-consistent with the UN body which hadsaid higher values were possible.

“We’re five years down the tracknow, we know more about how those

big ice sheets are behaving,” Steffentold reporters. “In part we have somevery good information about theGreenland icesheet. We know it’slosing mass and we know it’s losingmass at an increasing rate.

“So that’s telling us that we needto extend that upper range a bit to-wards a metre. Now there are com-mentators who say it should be evenhigher than that.”

The report said a sea-level riseof 0.5m would lead to surprisinglylarge impacts, with the risk of ex-treme events such as inundations incoastal areas around Australia’slargest cities of Sydney andMelbourne hugely increased.Steffen said in some instances, aone-in-a-hundred year event couldhappen every year.

season’s success to using the full po-tential of a strong squad, highlightedby a procession of 21 players beingpresented with Premier League win-ners’ medals, all eligible as they hadmade 10 appearances or more.

It gives him plenty of options tochoose from next weekend — a clearsign that the lines between fringeplayer and starter are not as clear asusual — but the reality is that only the

best will do.Asked if he had finalised his start-

ing XI, Ferguson said: “Not entirelybut we’ve got the nucleus who deservetheir place and there are others whodeserve a place.

“But I can only pick 11 and that’sthe horrible part of being a managernow. At a cup final, it’s absolute agonyand something you don’t relish at allbut I have to do it.”

With Ferguson keen to avoid themistakes that led to defeat by theSpaniards in the 2009 final, when herested many of his first-choice play-ers for an end-of-season league gameagainst Hull City only for them to thenlose 2-0 to Barca, he played a stron-ger-than-expected side for Sunday’slast domestic game at home toBlackpool that ended with a 4-2 vic-tory.

Having already wrapped up thetitle, United had been expected bymany pundits to field a second-stringside but instead big game players likeNemanja Vidic, Edwin van der Sar,

Park Ji-sung and Nani were amongthe starters.

There were of course notable play-ers like Rio Ferdinand, AntonioValencia, Wayne Rooney and RyanGiggs either on the bench or restedaltogether but there were certainlymore possible Wembley starters in-volved than many had predicted. “Ihave to pick a team and leave somevery good players out,” Fergusonsaid. “Hopefully, those who have allplayed a part in the European cam-paign this season will feel satisfac-tion at the end of the night at Wembleyand we’ll win the cup.”

A 9-0 run in the fourth quarterhelped Miami pull away for good andgrab a 2-1 lead in the series.

“C-B had it going,” James said.“And when we have someone goingon our team, we continue to give theball to him and continue to feed offtheir energy offensively. And hebrought it home for us tonight.” Game4 is Tuesday in Miami.

Wade added 17 points and nine re-bounds for Miami, which is 7-0 athome in the playoffs and handed theteam that finished with the NBA’s bestrecord its first losing streak since Feb.5-7. Udonis Haslem sealed it with ajumper with 1:29 left, putting Miamiup 93-84.

Wade was the one who got thephone call that started putting themove toward a Miami “Big 3” intooverdrive, when Bosh dialed him uplast summer and said, “I’m feelingMiami.” With that, Wade decided tostay with the Heat, and James madehis decision to join them a day or solater. They came together to win titlesand are two wins away from head-ing to the NBA finals.

“Obviously, I’m very happy forhim,” Wade said. “A lot of peopledon’t understand how difficult it’sbeen to make the adjustment, to playwith two other players who dominatethe ball so much. Some games hegets it, some games he doesn’t, so tofind a flow, to find a rhythm, some-times it’s tough.” Not on Sunday, itwasn’t.

Bosh missed his first three shots,and never worried. He was in arhythm. He was catching the ballwhere he wanted. And then midwaythrough the first quarter, he finallysaw the ball go through the hoop forthe first time. “That was good enoughfor me,” Bosh said. And more thangood enough for the Heat.

The RB7 has started from poleposition at every grand prix so farthis year, but its sometimes one-sec-ond per lap advantage in single-lapperformance has not been matchedin the races.

At Barcelona, the team was againin a class of its own in qualifyingbut in the grand prix Vettel waspushed all the way by LewisHamilton - at an aerodynamically-demanding track which should haveenabled Red Bull Racing to havemore of an advantage.

When asked if McLaren’s chal-lenge was a concern, becauseBarcelona should have been mucheasier for Red Bull owing to its sup-posed car advantage, team princi-pal Christian Horner said: “It wasn’tconcerning at all because we wonthe grand prix.

“I think that at the end of the day,it would be very arrogant of us tothink we have a car advantage thatwould enable us to pull away at onesecond per lap.

“We managed to have a phenom-enal qualifying here and, as we sawin China, McLaren pushed us hardthere. They were competitive in the

its car is as far ahead of the opposition as its stunning qualify-ing form suggests.

race and they were not competitivetwo weeks ago in Turkey. It tends tosee-saw. “But they brought a hugeupgrade, almost a B-spec car here,and the upgrades that we have intro-duced have moved us forward. So Ithink that we are in a good situation.

“The form will continue to varyand is circuit dependent, where someteams will be stronger in race andsome in qualifying.” Horner believesthat Red Bull Racing’s bigger advan-tage that it has in qualifying comparedto the race is most probably relatedto the way it uses its Pirelli rubber.

“It is all about the tyre,” he said.“I think that we managed to extracta lap out of the tyre in qualifyingthat led to a hugely impressive mar-gin here, but I don’t think you canabuse the tyre like that in the race.

“You either do that and go for afive-stop, or you make the stints suityour strategy and react to the paceof people around you. McLarenwere a lot more competitive as weexpected they would be in the race.But it is funny because two weeksago Ferrari were our main competi-tors, and in Spain we lapped them.So it varies circuit to circuit.”

FERNANDO Alonso said henever believed he had much of achance of fighting for victory in theSpanish Grand Prix - despite lead-ing the early stages of the race.

The Spaniard jumped fromfourth on the grid to move to thefront of the pack at Barcelona, butfell down the order and off the pacewhen he switched to the prime tyresat his third spot.

He eventually finished a lap downin fifth place – but thinks his perfor-mance looked worse than it was sim-ply because of his strong qualifyingform and early position in the race.

“We were not quick enough,” ex-plained Alonso. “That is the main is-sue. Yesterday we should maybequalify eighth and ninth, and ‘unfor-tunately’ I was fourth. Today, if youstart the race eighth, you finish fifth,so it is a great result. “We were out ofposition yesterday, it was a good lap,and we were out of position today be-cause of the good start, so everythinglooks sad. But that is the way it is.

“We had a great start and foundourselves leading the race but not withthe pace to lead the race, so step bystep, lap by lap, you are losing ground.

“And then, at the end with hardtyres, we were not competitive withthem all weekend. And unfortu-

Alonso never thought win was possiblenately, anticipating the stops with thesoft, we found ourselves for 40% ofthe race with the hard tyre, whichwas a less competitive tyre for us,so we were slow with the soft andvery, very slow with the hard.”

Even though Alonso kept hislead for the first stint of the race, hesaid he knew fairly early on that hewas not going to be able to keep hisadvantage for the race.

“It was great, a great experienceto lead the race for the first time thisyear, in front of my people. I enjoyedthe first 20 laps of the race, even if

there was a lot of pressure from be-hind. “You have to use your strategy,your KERS, everything in the rightplace to defend the position and Ienjoyed, I really enjoyed, those laps.

“But I was thinking in thepitstops there is nothing you can do,stop one lap early they will over-take you, if they stay out they willovertake you. The only possibilityis stopping the same lap as theywere doing but, because I had threeor four cars behind me, you cannotdo that with all the cars - so I hadno big hopes for the winning.”
