Kitchen sink bigotry still runs deep

WHY DO women earn less than men? Why are there fewer women than men at the top of most professions? The answer, according to a new book, is not discrimination at work, nor even outdated working practices, it is biology, pure and simple. According to Kingsley Browne, professor of law at Wayne State University, Michigan, attempts by governments to remedy the earnings gap, or to tackle the "glass ceiling" which keeps women out of top jobs, are pointless. Most women, he claims, do badly at work because our temperament isn't suited to it.

win wishmaster

Horror fans are in for a treat this week with the cinematic release of the latest nightmare offering from Wes Craven, Wishmaster. Starring the terrifying likes of Tammy Lauren, Andrew Divoff and Robert Englund (who played Elm Street's own Freddy Krueger), it's the tale of The Djinn, a genie, who is awakened from his 1,000-year sleep to grant wishes which are carried out as extreme acts of violence. The more wishes he grants, the more powerful he becomes and destruction sweeps across LA as he searches for Alexandra Amberson, who woke the Djinn from his slumbers, so that he can fill the earth with his own race. To mark the release of Wishmaster, the London Eye has a number of prizes to give away: the first prize-winner will receive a VHS player and the Wes Craven back catalogue (excluding Wishmaster) on video. Five second prize-winners will each get a Wishmaster jacket, a Wishmaster T-shirt, baseball cap and badge. Five runners-up will receive Wishmaster T-shirts and baseball caps.

Bunhill: Hold tight - plenty more room at 27,000 feet

WHAT comes down must go up, so maybe we should be wary of the pounds 100 return flights to all parts of Europe offered by Go, British Airways' new cut-price airline which took off for the first time on Friday. And maybe we shouldn't read too much into the decision by Virgin Express to undercut Go by selling tickets for pounds 98. But I prefer to think that airports are the new bus stops.
