French hail Carla Bruni as their own Princess Diana after she kisses children with AIDS on Africa trip
The French have hailed their First Lady Carla Bruni as 'the new Princess Diana' after she kissed infected children on her first trip to Africa as an AIDS ambassador.
Images of the former supermodel hugging AIDS victims in the poverty-stricken state of Burkina Faso have been splashed across the media in France.
And glossy magazine VSD said yesterday: 'She is Diana's natural heiress.
'She must surely be thinking she is following in the footsteps of the Princess as she visits a continent which is still devastated by AIDS.'
Superglam Carla Bruni-Sarkozy shows Hollywood stars how it's done at Paris Fashion Week gala
France's First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy stole the show at a Paris Fashion Week gala in a traffic-stopping purple dress.
Showing her move into politics haven't dimmed her fashion roots, the 41-year-old singer was the epitome of Gallic chic as she arrived at the annual Gala Sidaction-Diner de la Mode in the French capital last night.
On a day when one million French workers took to the streets in protest at her husband Nicolas's handling of the economic crisis, Bruni-Sarkozy was partying in a Yves Saint Laurent column dress.
The Queen of Coum-BoohaEgypt’s only female mayor is too busy taking charge and solving crises to worry about what people have to say about her
By Ali El-Bahnasawy
Asked for directions to Coum-Booha village in Assiut governorate, an old man wearing a gray galabeyya and a traditional brown hat responds in a heavy Upper Egypt accent, “the village whose mayor is mara?”
Mara is a condescending Arabic word to describe a woman. He says it in a disgusted tone, points out directions and leaves in a hurry.
The village of Coum-Booha welcomes visitors with a fairly standard sight: a few small coffee shops scattered about the village’s main entrance.
This is also where men spend their evenings smoking shisha and chatting about politics and women, their favorite subjects.
This sunny January morning, they are discussing both at the same time. More specifically, they’re discussing Eva Habeil Kirollous, the new mayor of Coum-Booha and the first female mayor in the nation.
The community won’t hold her back from her chance to help the people simply because she’s a woman, he says, adding that before her election she was the village lawyer who helped people for years even when they couldn’t pay.
Magdy’s uncle Gamal interjects, “We know her father too, and her grandfather. Both were mayors for Coum-Booha. We liked them because they were honest, down-to-earth people. We don’t want a mayor from outside this family.”
As the men offer their opinions, the mayor swiftly becomes the hot topic in the coffee shop, and all agree that a female mayor might be as good as a male one. Nevertheless, everyone wants his say on the matter. After staying silent a long time, the oldest man in the room nods his wrinkled head and proclaims, “I don’t mind having a female mayor, only if she is working like a man.”

Noruego suma 87 triunfos
Los deportes de invierno tienen un nuevo monarca
Madrid. EFE Con 35 años y sus condiciones aún intactas, el noruego Ole Einar Björndalen se ha convertido en el deportista de invierno más laureado de la historia, al acumular 87 grandes triunfos.
Bjorndalen, nacido el 27 de enero de 1974 en Drammen, supera ya en una victoria a otro mito de la nieve, el esquiador alpino sueco Ingemar Stenmark, que logró entre 1975 y 1983 subirse en 86 oportunidades a lo más alto del podio.

Scientists 're-grow optic nerves'
Scientists believe they have taken a big step forward in their effort to be able to repair damaged nerves.
Researchers at Harvard Medical School say they have had some success trying to regenerate optic nerves in rats.
Writing in the Journal of Neuroscience they said while they were unable to restore sight they achieved three times more regeneration compared to others.
Finding a way to re-grow nerves could lead to cures for a wide range of conditions from blindness to paralysis.
Permanent damageAny injuries that cause damage to nerves tend to be permanent. This is because nerve cells cannot regenerate or repair themselves.
Scientists around the world are working on projects aimed at finding a way to get nerves to re-grow.
One of the reasons nerves are unable to regenerate is that proteins in the outer layer of nerve fibres are programmed to stop re-growth.
Scientists have developed ways to turn these proteins off. However, this has not proved enough to make nerves regenerate.
Dr Larry Benowitz and colleagues tried a two-pronged approach to try to stimulate re-growth. First, they damaged the lens in the eyes of a group of rats with optic nerve damage.
This nerve links the retina to the part of the brain that enables them to see. Damaging the lens stimulates an immune response - cells travel to the eye and release growth factors to try to repair the damage.
This causes nerve fibres to grow into the optic nerve. Dr Benowitz then used a gene therapy technique to try to boost this growth by injecting a gene designed to turn the proteins that are programmed to stop re-growth off.
"When we combined these two therapies - activating the growth programme in nerve cells and overcoming the inhibitory signaling - we got very dramatic regeneration," said Dr Benowitz.
However, the scientists were unable to get the nerve fibres from the retina and those from the brain to hook up properly. "It's a mapping problem," said Dr Benowitz. "We have to retain the proper organisation of fibre projections to the brain.
"Further researchThe scientists are now planning further studies to try to overcome this problem. Kevin Shakesheff, professor of tissue engineering at the University of Nottingham, said scientists were still years away from being able to use these techniques in humans.
"There has been a lot of progress in this area," he told "We have taken enough steps forward to indicate we can solve the problem. The science is really exciting.
"However, translating that excitement into clinical applications will take time.
