UK student gets Politically Incorrect

Adel Iskandar, a doctoral student and UK instructor of international communications and mass media, recently published a book about the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera satellite network. If the name sounds familiar, it's because the network is the venue of choice for Al Qaeda to premiere the bin Laden tapes. The book, appropriately titled, Al-Jazeera, is the first book to look at the intricacies and inner workings of the news agency. In detail, Al-Jazeera looks to focus on the genesis of the network, its ramifications on the Arab viewers as well as the West (that's us), and how it will impact news broadcasting in the Middle East in the future. The book has gotten national attention and Iskandar will be on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher Tuesday, May 7th to debate it.

Take a little PRIDE

May 6-10 marks the first annual PRIDE in the Schools Week, and Bluegrass PRIDE (Personal Responsibility In a Desirable Environment) anticipates enthusiastic participation for its first environmental-education endeavor. PRIDE is a public/private coalition whose mission is, to "provide resources to educate and empower communities and individuals to improve their quality of life by improving the quality of their environment." Events during the PRIDE in the Schools Week will include visits by Dave Baker of WKYT and Ric Larson of WBUL to area schools, and at 9a.m. on May 7, Congressman Ernie Fletcher will lead students on a walk down Gladie Creek in Powell County, where they will search for different species of insects that can help indicate a water source's quality.

For information on how to get your school involved, contact the Bluegrass PRIDE office at (866) 222.1648 or at J.R.

Caller blockin'

Remember when we told you about the "No Call" list? Remember when we told you that if you didn't want telemarketers calling you in the middle of dinner you should call to have your name put on the list? Well, if you didn't take advantage of that opportunity, here's another chance. The Attorney General's Office has set up a new phone system and a new web site for you to get your name on the list. The new law, which was passed by the 2002 General Assembly, will go into effect July 15th. But don't get caught slipping this time, the Attorney General's Office has also established deadlines for the "No Call" list. Don't say we didn't warn you. n
