You may be one of those people for whom summer is far too short! But like it or not, most of you only have a few short months to enjoy the great outdoors in most of the continental US.

After spending six or more months stuck inside from rain, snow and sleet, you can't wait to rush out and spend all day on a Saturday or Sunday in the sun. Not only is the golf course beckoning, but so is yard work, your kids' sporting events, and the grill.

The Somali capital, Mogadishu, has in late March and early April 2007 been witnessing the heaviest fighting and most woeful destruction since the start of the civil war in the early 1990s. A local human-rights organisation recorded nearly 400 deaths and more than 500 people wounded during just four days of fighting between the two sides (in their way more coalitions than single entities): the Ethiopian army, operating in support of Somalia's transitional federal government (TFG), versus Islamic fighters and militias from the city's dominant clan, the Hawiye.

[ 1 ] The book relates to diverse collections of independently deciding individuals, rather than crowd psychology as traditionally understood.
The study, which SMI conducted together with Procter & Gamble, maps the recent landslide in the consumer goods industry: Until recently, the “best detergent” was the one with the best image, the best cleansing action and the best value for the money.
