People: Kasparov makes losing move
Friday 30 April 1993
BIGGER girls across the United States accompanied their parents to work on Wednesday to mark 'Take Our Daughters to Work Day' designed to provide role models for girls aged nine to 15. Tom Henricks planned to take 10-year-old Katherine to work with him at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, but found himself out of town on the day. Henricks, co-pilot of the shuttle Columbia, said his trip into space made it impossible to bring Katherine to work.
NOT quite in the spirit of the day, Joshua Nkomo told a startled audience of women at the Zimbabwe Institute of Public Administration and Management that women should blame their problems on God, not men.
'The problem of women is not a problem brought about by men, it is a problem by the Creator himself,' the Zimbabwean Vice-President said, adding that when Eve was created for a lonely Adam she 'started problems' by letting him eat the forbidden fruit. 'These problems are those that men and women face even today.'
MAKING his first visit to Israel, Martin Bormann, the son of Hitler's top aide, expressed his grief at the memorial to the six million Jews killed by the Nazis. Bormann toured the Yad Vashem memorial along with other children of Nazi officials. Asked how he felt, the former Catholic priest and godson of Hitler, said: 'Mourning - especially when we came to the place where I saw the names of the thousands of children.' Bormann, who now teaches theology, said he knew his father as a good parent and that only God could judge his political side.
ANOTHER son on the territory of his father's enemies was Sergei Khrushchev, son of Nikita. Sergei, 57, has been granted permanent US resident status. In his Soviet engineering days, he supervised a team of scientists designing missiles to be aimed at US targets and later worked on guidance control systems for strategic weapons. Khrushchev wasn't sure what his father would have thought of his decision to remain in the United States, where he is a research fellow at Brown University's Center for Foreign Policy Development in Rhode Island.
'I think he could say it was a good thing because I try to put something more to improving relations between our countries and bring the explanation of what happened in Russia to America,' he said. Or: 'Maybe he will tell you he doesn't like this because I leave my country at this time. You can choose any answer that you want.'
