Abstract:

UNITED STATES UNDER TERRORIST ATTACK : Reviewing the tragic events in the United States, this News in Review story examines what this terrorist attack means in global terms and the implications for North Americans especially. We also review issues related to emergency measures and crisis management, public coping strategies, and issues of media coverage. The extended report assesses what happened and the immediate aftermath; it examines the debate over retaliation and its political and historical implications; and it shows the effects and impact on the general population, how people deal with the horror, and the backlash reaction.

RACISM : THEN AND NOW : This report examines the UN conference on racism and xenophobia, held in Durban, South Africa, that was marred by controversy and discord over such issues as reparations for slavery and the word-ing of a conference statement accusing Israel of apartheid-like behaviour. Bringing he issue closer to home we also examine the black experience in Nova Scotia and recent calls there for measures to redress historic wrongs.

WIND POWER : HARNESSING NATURE : As a cheap, clean, and completely renewable source of energy, wind power is gaining favour across Canada. Authorities and scientists are working to harness this natural resource in order to power public facilities such as skytrains in Calgary or to produce electricity in energy-intensive areas of Canada such as Ontario. We analyze and assess the realities, advantages, and disadvantages of this age-old energy source.
