O Mores! If Mr. James Ross sounds a similar warning in another quarter. In a world of constantly- shift- ing values, young people need to know the bottom line is that the greater majority of the human race is either male or female, equipped by nature to fulfil the teleological purpose which is of vital importance for the continu- ation of our species, and that to prevent its total collapse, society should ensure that demarcation lines in this respect are clearly drawn.
Language which reflects this must be maintained. It is most unfortunate, yet a fact of life, that in some cases sexual orientation has become confused by Mother Nature, but, as a former colleague of mine, a priest of the Benedic- tine order, James once remarked in a discussion on this subject, we should sympathise but not con- done. Os mergulhadores fotografaram. Antes do imcio do jogo, o treinador conversou calmamente com e deu-lhe algumas palavras de encorajamento. E uma velha historia sobre um pastor que, durante anos, guardou no alto da montanha.
The Portugal News - Apartado 13, Lagoa. Tel: 34 11 Alles is wrong when he writes that I did not respond to his letter of 19th April, because I submit- ted a reply a few days later. How- ever, it was not published because of an editorial decision to end the holocaust debate. Unfortunately no mention of that was made in the Letters Page. However, my reason for men- tioning the NWO was a means to draw attention to a much more serious threat - i. What has surprised me about part of an earlier letter by Mr.
Alles is that no loyal Dutch survivor of the German occupation has com- mented on his boast that he was proud of his grandfather who vol- unteered to serve in the Brigade Nederland of the Waffen SS. These Dutch traitors helped pro- long the war by fighting alongside German troops on the eastern front. Perhaps such treacherous behaviour happened so long ago that the Dutch now think it is best forgotten? Road Safety Strategy defined several obj ectives it will carry out in collaboration with 14 working groups.
But these plans were dealt a serious blow when it emerged that putting these ambitious plans into practice is easier said than done. Traffic police in at least five districts, including the Greater Lisbon Metropolitan Area, have for the past month been unable to use their speed meas- uring radar guns due to the ap- parent lack of maintenance of the equipment. The situation is reportedly because of the non-renewal of the contract between the GNR BT traffic police and the com- pany maintaining these radars.
The current situation means that whenever these highly sen- sitive radar guns experience a mal-function, they are shelved awaiting repair by a company yet to be assigned the task. While impossible to esti- mate, police are losing thou- sands of euros in revenue from fines they would be issuing had they been equipped with func- tional speed guns.
Police have so far refused to officially comment on this situ- ation, which is said to stem from the re- shuffle of the former DGV road authority, which previously governed the main- tenance of speed measuring equipment. Lollowing the shake-up at the DGV, which resulted in re- gional offices being closed and more than employees as- signed alternative jobs and re- sponsibilities, hundreds of thousands of fines are now in limbo and could be scrapped totally. Current estimates suggest that there are currently , fines pending at offices of the now defunct DGV. The ANSR, which has now taken over the handling of traf- fic offences and fines, is cur- rently embroiled in an action seeking to have these fines trans- ported to their offices, a move declined by the Accounts Tribu- nal.
The Government, arguing that no tender had been released due to the urgent nature of the transfer of the fines, as many were on the verge of passing the statute of limitations and could no longer be charged to drivers, insisted on not opening a pub- lic tender, though the Tribunal has so far stood its ground. As it stands, drivers who committed traffic offences in and the start of are now not far from avoiding pay- ing fines or face additional pu- nitive measures such as having their licences suspended. And what might connect those two things with a new, even Colder War?
And the most valu- able of those resources are oil and gas. Only about a metre three feet thick, it spreads across the ocean each winter, but tends to melt the following summer. So everybody is watching to see what happens this summer, explained Dr Jim Maslanik of the University of Colorado — Boulder. Last summer, he took a three-man submarine down to the bottom of the Arctic Ocean precisely at the North Pole, and planted a Russian flag in the seabed.
The other three countries with Arctic coastlines, the United States Alaska , Den- mark Greenland andNorway, are equally suspicious of Rus- sian intentions. The real issue is about who owns the rights to the seabed, and the Russian claim is pretty ambitious. Moscow claims that the Lomonosov Ridge, the subsea mountain range that goes straight across the middle of the Arctic Ocean, is an exten- sion of the Russian territorial shelf, and therefore belongs to Russia all the way to the North Pole.
Alternatively, if the Law of the Sea tribunal does not ul- timately accept that claim, Moscow may have an even broader claim in reserve. The width of those slices depended on where the various claimants owned ter- ritories near Antarctica, mostly islands in the Southern Ocean. Those claims are dor- mant because of a subsequent treaty banning economic de- Russian President Vladimir Pi the Arctic deep-water ex February Russian Arc velopment in Antarctica, but the precedent has not been for- gotten.
By that precedent, Russia could lay claim to about half the Arctic Ocean on the basis of lines of longitude running from the far eastern and west- ern ends of the country up to the North Pole — and in the old Soviet Union did pre- cisely that. But Russia has the big Arctic ports and the nuclear-powered ice-breakers to make its claim stick, and nobody else does. That is where the current panic comes from. As is often the case with hens, they are over-reacting.
Russia is in a more assertive mood than it was a decade ago, but there are no signs that it intends to pursue its claims by force. Neither has any other authori- tative source, yet this factoid has gained such currency that it even influences government policy. It is available exclusively through The Portugal News in Portugal.

It is not known how good the tuners are in the new freesat boxes, or whether they will work in Portugal, Spain, etc. Rumours that freesat can be received with a small dish in Spain and Portugal are not true. Freesat is being given a soft launch now, giving them time to iron out any software bugs or hardware problems in time for the proper launch in No- vember. Viewers with standard defi- nition TV will be better off with sky freesat as they will get Channel 5.

Many gardeners avoid plaeing hanging baskets in shade, but there are some plants that will do well without direet sun and still provide a splash of eolour where it is needed. Professionalism and craftsmanship guaran- teed. But while most bedding re- quires some direct sunlight, you can create wonderful hanging baskets from plants which pro- vide contrasting foliage and tex- ture.
Mix leafy plants including begonias and hostas with spiky grasses and flowing ferns for an eye-catching contrast. There are some fuchsias which will do well in the shade, including F. Some heuchera are also perfect for adding dramatic leaf contrast to a basket. It likes some cool shade and its silvery sheen adds lustre to a dull scene. One of my hanging baskets is in shade at the front of my house and I find that bacopa works well as a trailing filler, its white flow- ers contrasting well with the daisy-like lilac flowers of brachyscome. Whatever you choose, remem- ber that hanging baskets can dry out easily in shade, just as they do in sun.
You will still find that in the height of summer you will have to water the basket on a daily basis maybe even twice a day , whether in sun or shade. For the moment, plant up the baskets by balancing the basket on top of a bucket, so you can move the basket around and plant up the sides without it toppling and damaging the plants.
Hannah Stephenson Three ways to Plan a new garden layout 1. Draw a plan of the ex- isting plot, using graph or squared paper, plotting the outline of the house and the furthest comers of the plot first, checking measure- ments from one fixed point to another. Mark any existing fea- tures, which you want to keep, such as trees, shmbs and existing buildings. Lay tracing paper over the original plan to experi- ment with your own ideas for a new layout, visualising what it will look like from the main viewpoints. Clean lines and simple shapes always work best.

If so, you need to repaint the whole room unless the dam- age is in an inconspicuous place using specialist kitchen and bath- room paint, which is moisture re- sistant and easy to wipe clean. If not, anything goes, though dark colours do nothing to im- prove small or dingy rooms. Now look at the tiles - do they need freshening up? The most common problem is discoloured or mouldy grout. Retiling the whole room, if nec- essary, is a much bigger job, but still well within the grasp of many DIYers.
You may prefer to paint the tiles. To do so, clean them thor- oughly with sugar soap or dedi- cated tile cleaner, rinse with clean water and allow to dry. For a neat, smooth finish, use a gloss roller small and foam rather than a paint- brush, which will leave brush marks.
The trouble with tile paint is that the tiles look a bit odd be- cause the grout is painted too, though you could try using a grout pen on it afterwards, or using white tile paint so the tiles and grout naturally merge. If you have plain tiles that you want to jazz up, or a few unat- tractive ones that you want to cover up, how about tile trans- fers? These are inexpensive and easy to apply. If you do decide to have a go yourself, trim the lino just big- ger than you need and then care- fully cut it to fit exactly, using templates to negotiate awkward shapes where necessary.
How the hard job is will depend on the shape and size of your kitchen. One option is to replace the doors. Some DIY stores sell doors separately and so do spe- cialist replacement door compa- nies - look on the internet or in the weekend supplements for these. A cheaper option may be to make replacement doors out of MDF and paint them yourself. Changing the handles can make a big dif- ference or, better still, changing the handles and painting the doors. When choosing a topcoat, check out the specialist kitchen cupboard and melamine paint ranges, though most eggshells, satinwoods and glosses prefer- ably a quick-drying one will do.
The main problem with painted units is that they tend to chip, as the doors are repeatedly opened and closed. When it comes to kitchens, tough, hardwearing surfaces are always good news - providing they look good too. Lighter evenings are great for DIY because you see so much more in natural light than artificial light. Ideal jobs for light eve- nings are finishing painting, touching up paintwork and perfect- ing the finish of a job. Messy DIY jobs, such as sanding, planing and sawing, or ones that create toxic fumes, such as chemical paint stripping, should be done outside whenever possible.
Quality of Life He recently acquired a mas- sive , square metre prop- erty which has been subject to numerous renovations. To ensure his ambitions are realised through his wine, Karl Heinz replaced all of the man- agement and the technical equipment, as well as hiring a reputable oenologist to ensure the quality of wine produced is of the highest standard.
But Quinta dos Vales pro- vides wine with a difference. All of the grapes used for pro- duction are carefully chosen from a conveyor belt to ensure the best quality grapes are used. Besides scrutinising the grapes, the equipment used is of the highest technological stand- ards available, allowing the pro- duction line to function with only one person working whilst still being able to maintain a strict control.
Quinta dos V ales will be pro- ducing four wine varieties; a red, a red reserve, a white and a rose wine, all originated from the harvest of grapes from Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Sauvignon, Aragonez and Arinto vines. The reserve is matured in oak barrels imported directly from France, giving the wine a full bodied wood flavour. Karl Heinz has grouped sev- eral artists to produce a number of provocative and outstanding new sculptures, located mainly in the sculpture garden but more can be found spread across the land.
Using several different ma- terials for sculpting, from stone, wood, glass fibre to poly- ester, the team has been able to produce much larger sculp- tures, some reaching five me- tres in height. Creating these large figures demands a lot of input and time, besides talent, and several sculptors are required to carry out the task. Realising that art and agri- culture alone would not sustain the vineyard, Karl Heinz de- cided to add tourist residencies and attractions.
On the acres of land there are five newly renovated apart- ments available for rentals and there is also a large seven bed- room house that can accommo- date fourteen people. A total of , square metres of the land are reserved for animals in fenced areas, with black pigs, wild boar, sheep, horses, po- nies, ducks, geese, deer and soon they will have lamas and kangaroos. Quinta dos Vales is ideally located close to top-rated golf courses and is only 10 minutes from the sea.

In this article I will focus a bit more centrally on the core and how to use it can be used to get better distance and control.
Too often, a good postural set up at address is lost upon the be- ginning portion of the golf swing. These two muscle groups are royalty as regards the golf swing and demand attention and re- spect. Pelvic immobility is the On the go The suck and squeeze. Standing up straight place a hand on your tummy just below the belly button and suck your tummy in so your hand moves towards your spine. At the same time squeeze your backside. The effect should cause your pelvis to tilt backwards.
Hold this for 10 sec. Breathe and repeat. This exercise can be done any time, any where, and the more often it is done the greater the effect. Learning how to activate these muscle groups prior to starting the swing will enable them to function better and help with sequencing particularly in the down swing. The pelvic tilt move encour- ages good activation of these muscle groups and increases pel- vis and hip mobility. The follow- ing exercises will develop the strength and control of this move which will when utilized add dis- tance and control to your game, and when perfected could also do wonders for your sex life.
At home The assisted pelvic tilt Using a chair or wall for support lean forwards and place both hand on the sup- port with knees slightly bent. First arch forward tilt then round backward tilt the lower back feeling the abs and gluteus tighten as you tilt the pelvis backwards.

Tilt the pelvis forwards and back- wards trying to get as much range in the movement as possible without causing any pain. Once you have mas- tered this try the move with- out support with arms across the chest. Make sure that the shoulders and knees do not move.

Our room was no exception to the high standards already seen in the public areas, no expense had been spared on the decor and furnishings, simple, but superb. Double glazing, of course, blinds and thick flannel curtains so soft to the touch.
The bed was huge, and welcoming in its plushness. The bathroom, was equally well appointed. Toiletries by Bvlgari; thick, soft bath and hand towels; robes; and excellent light- ing, exactly where you needed it, without being obtrusive.

Laura is wonderful and I knew Cleo would be fine with her as she has known Laura all her life. I, have found it very difficult not having Cleo with me and not showing her myself. However, nothing is ever simple in life. Thankyou so much Laura for looking after Cleo and for showing her for me.
