PM declares war on corruption
On its second birthday, UPA-II releases its performance card
New Delhi, May 22
Conscious of the fact that the ruling coalition's image has taken a beating in the wake of a series of scams, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi today declared the government's determination to combat corruption in public life. They were addressing a function held at the Prime Minister's residence to mark the second anniversary of the UPA-II government.

Congress allies keep dinner date
New Delhi, May 22
Since it came to power in 2004, the UPA government’s anniversary celebrations are an occasion to highlight the ruling alliance’s achievements and to present a picture of unity and cohesion. In the days before today’s programme, held at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s residence, there was talk that a number of key allies would opt out of the annual show, which would have sent out a worrying signal that the Congress and its allies are not on the same page.

Strauss-Kahn: More hotel staff ‘propositioned’
Dominique Strauss-KahnFORMER IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who eight days ago was one of the most powerful men on the planet, spent his first full day as an electronically tagged, armed guarded, rape suspect yesterday at a temporary address in Manhattan — a flat equipped (at his expense) with sensitive alarms and 24-hour CCTV to deter him from fleeing. Not that he is likely to do so. And, to make sure he can't so much as slip out for a sandwich, he is forbidden to leave the premises.

In ’72 he wrote about webcams and microwaves
What will the world look like in the not-too-distant future? It's a fun game to play sitting around the pub/dinner-party table, but unless you grew up in the house of the astronomer and science-fiction writer Sir Fred Hoyle (who, incidentally, coined the term ‘big bang’, even though he rejected the theory), where lunches with the physicist Richard Feynman were not uncommon, chances are your beautiful "vision" will evaporate with the inexorable passing of time.
