    SAYWHAT...Ads are the cave art of the 20th

    century.Marshall McLuhan

    (NY Times) After Sunday worship in recent months, Mormon bishops around the country gathered their congre-gations for an unusual Pow-erPoint presentation to unveil the churchs latest strategy for overcoming what it calls its perception problem.

    Top Mormon leaders had hired two big-name advertis-ing agencies in 2009 to nd out what Americans think of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Using focus groups and surveys, they found that Americans who had any opinion at all used adjectives that were downright negative: secre-tive, cultish, sexist, con-trolling, pushy, anti-gay.

    On seeing these results, some of those watching the presentation booed while others laughed, according to people at the meetings. But then they were told that the church was ready with a response: a multimillion-dollar television, billboard and Internet advertising campaign that uses the tag-line, Im a Mormon. The campaign, which began last year but was recently extended to 21 media mar-kets, features the personal stories of members who defy stereotyping, includ-ing a Hawaiian longboard sur ng champion, a fashion designer and single father in New York City and a Haitian-American woman who is mayor of a small Utah city.

    FRANKFURT (NY Times) The fi nancial sta-bility of Europe has come down to one institution, the European Central Bank, which is now under heavy new pressure to rescue the euro or pos-sibly see it collapse. Jos Luis Rodrguez Zapatero, Spains prime minister, on Thursday became the latest leader to demand that the bank fi nd a solu-tion to the euro crisis, saying that this is what we transferred power for and that it had to be a bank that defends the common policy and its countries.

    Zapatero made his unusually blunt statements on a day when markets sagged further and conta-gion continued its seemingly inexorable spread from the small economies on Europes periphery to Italy, Spain and even France at the core. Spain was forced Thursday to pay nearly 7 percent on an issue of 10-year debt, the highest since 1997, while investors demanded the largest premium for buying French as opposed to German debt in the decade-long his-tory of the euro.

    European rift on banks role in debt relief

    CAIRO (NY Times) Tens of thousands of Islamists jammed Tahrir Square on Friday in the most signifi cant challenge yet to the authority of Egypts military council that seized power nine months ago with the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak.

    The demonstration ended an uneasy truce between Egypts Islamists and its military, which had prevailed since Mubaraks exit. The truce reached a break-

    ing point after the military coun-cil spelled out for the fi rst time its intention to claim a decisive role in Egyptian politics far into the future, even after parlia-mentary elections scheduled to begin later this month or a fi nal handover of power to constitu-tional authorities some time in 2013 or beyond.

    It begins a faceoff between Egypts two most powerful institutions, its army and the once-outlawed Muslim Broth-

    erhood, that left Egyptian lib-erals anxious and divided on the sidelines.

    Each side is drawing lines in the sand over its future role in the political process, said Emad Shahin, an Egyptian scholar at Notre Dame who was in Tahrir Square on Friday. The military forces would like to secure an exit from the tran-sitional period with some kind of assurances of its future role in the political scene, he said.

    Obamas trip sends message to Asian leaders

    BALI, Indonesia (NY Times) President Obama discussed maritime security, nuclear non-proliferation and disaster aid at an Asian summit on Friday, but just his presence on this resort island telegraphed his main mes-sage: that the United States is turning its focus to the booming Asia-Pacifi c region after a decade of preoccupation with wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Calling the region critical to economic growth and national security, Obama said, I want everyone to know from the outset, my administration is committed to strengthening our ties with each country individu-ally but also with the regions institutions.

    The American focus on Asia has been raising tensions with an ever more powerful China, which has been increasingly assertive in the region. On Friday, Prime Minister Wen Jiabao pushed back again, saying at the summit meeting that outside forces should not, under any pretext interfere in a regional fi ght over the control of the South China Sea.
