[The Herald] HIGHLANDERS' revival came to a screeching halt when they surrendered a 1-goal lead, falling to championship chasing FC Platinum in a Castle Lager Premiership match at Barbourfields Stadium yesterday. The troubled Bulawayo giants were expected to spoil the day for the platinum miners following their 4-0 drubbing of Chicken Inn a fortnight ago at the same venue.

[Greenpeace] Approaching the forest in the Congo, I am met with an overwhelming wall of green. Flying over it, I see the meandering rivers merging together. I see animals drinking from the rivers, frolicking with joy in the water. Walking into the forest, I hear a chorus of teeming life - birds, lowland and mountain gorillas, forest elephants, bonobos - many of which are now endangered.
