A world of good

Citizens can share in Olympic scrapbook Vancouver 2010 has invited Canadians to share their photos and words about their country and neighbourhoods through an online digital scrapbook called Canada CODE. The idea is to produce a constantly morphing online portrait of contemporary Canada created by Canadians for the entire world to see. Designed as part of the Vancouver 2010 Games Cultural Olympiad, it’s a first for Canada and the Olympic Games. Make your submissions by going to www.vancouver2010.com/code. United States. Genetic link to autism likely to help patients ‘Our ukelele teacher is Mr. Buffett’ When he’s not attending to the businesses that helped him amass a $40 billion fortune, Warren Buffett maintains a decades-long love for the ukulele, and he wants to keep the music playing. So he has given ukuleles and a lesson on the instrument to girls at the North Omaha branch of Girls Inc. The group’s goal is to help girls become “strong, smart and bold,” bolstering their confidence and self-sufficiency. The group works with girls ages five to 18, mainly from lower-income families. Most live with one parent or in foster care. Buffett spent about an hour with 13 girls at the group’s building, trying to teach them Red River Valley and Happy Birthday. Some of the girls had to be told who Buffett was. After the event one girl wanted to know if “our ukulele teacher is the second-richest man in the world.” When told it was true she asked: “The first-richest doesn’t play” In fact, the richest, Bill Gates, does play. Buffett taught him. Britain. Calendar Girls strip 10 years later France. Burn victim gets new face, hands
Surgeons have replaced a burn victim’s face and hands using donor tissue, in what is said to be the world’s first combined operation of that kind. The surgeons began with the hand transplant and then replaced the 30-year-old man’s face from the lips up, giving him a new scalp, nose, ears, forehead and eyelids.
