Find a dark spot and grab a blanket and a drink


THE LEONIDS meteor shower, which will is visible throughout this week in Cyprus will peak tonight, the Astronomical Society’s Takis Christodoulides said.

People should cast their eyes to a – hopefully cloudless – sky but take note that a bright moon is set to rise a little before midnight obscuring the phenomenon, Christodoulides said.

“Those who are interested in fully accommodating the mediocre viewing conditions should go to the countryside and look away from the moon,” Christodoulides said.

A meteorite part can enter the atmosphere at phenomenal speeds between about 40,000 and 265,000 kilometres an hour becoming visible at 90km away from the earth and burning soon after at 80km, Christodoulides said.

British sports minister calls for Blatter to quit

Britain’s Sports Minister Hugh Robertson and Gordon Taylor, the chief executive of England’s Professional Footballers Association, were among those calling for FIFA president Sepp Blatter to resign on Thursday following his comments on racism.

The 75-year-old Swiss has faced widespread criticism following his remarks on Wednesday when he said in two separate TV interviews there was no racism in football and that players involved in any racist confrontations on the pitch should settle their differences with a handshake at the end of the match.

The comments from the head of world soccer’s governing body have provoked a furore in England where the FA is dealing with two high-profile racism allegations.

Ad blasted for demeaning women

The Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (MIGS) has asked the advertising watchdog to ban a Bennigan’s advert after declaring that it ‘objectifies and demeans women’.

The ad depicts a picture of a woman, with ample photoshopped breasts, holding a plateful of baby back ribs or as the ad puts it, ‘oh baby back ribs’. Clearly, that must be ‘the best rack in town’, or so the ad claims.

Messages of this sort “perpetuate and reinforce gender inequality but also violence against women since by being turned into commercial objects they lose their human dignity,” MIGS said.

Update: Paphos airport operating normally after Swissport strike ends

11:51 Swissport’s impromptu strike has ended and Paphos airport has returned to normal operation, Hermes Airports PR manager Adamos Aspris said this morning.

“There was a stoppage but this is now over” Aspris said.

“Hermes Airports wishes to reiterate its regret to the traveling public about the difficulties and inconvenience suffered as a result of yesterday’s spontaneous strike by Swissport employees.”

Hundreds of passengers were stranded at Paphos airport last night, one of one of its busiest evenings of the week when ground handlers from Swissport staged an impromptu strike.

The industrial action was taken after a dispute with the company’s management over a plan to dismiss seven employees and reduce shifts for the remaining workers.
