    Sweden’s TV4 meteorologist Tone Bekkestad is being punished by the station after the Norwegian weather forecaster posed for sexy pictures in a recent issue of a popular men’s magazine. The piece in Slitz magazine was highlighting Sweden’s best looking women. Bekkestad's pose - in tight, low-cut jeans, an open black blazer, and with her cleavage partly showing - was apparently too much for the broadcaster. Bekkestad, who said she was duped by the magazine thinking it would use other less provocative pictures, was reportedly put on at least three months' leave from her duties as a result. “She won’t be...

    SAN FRANCISCO, May 9 - The incident seemed alarming enough: a breach of a Cisco Systems network in which an intruder seized programming instructions for many of the computers that control the flow of the Internet. Now federal officials and computer security investigators have acknowledged that the Cisco break-in last year was only part of a more extensive operation - involving a single intruder or a small band, apparently based in Europe - in which thousands of computer systems were similarly penetrated. Investigators in the United States and Europe say they have spent almost a year pursuing the case involving...

That's why last weekend's grand old man - James Callaghan - got a more sympathetic send-off than this weekend's. The Guardian's headline writer billed Sunny Jim as a man "whose consensus politics were washed away in the late 1970s". Is it possible to have any meaningful "consensus" between, on the one hand, closed-shop council manual workers demanding a...
