Miner's Wife

Hopes Prayers and Metallica

Will Jolt Him Out of Coma


January 7, 2006

The New York Times



PITTSBURGH, Jan. 6 - Anna McCloy went to Wal-Mart on Friday, bought a Metallica CD and a boom box to play for her husband, Randal McCloy Jr., the sole survivor of the West Virginia mine disaster. Though he remained in a medically induced coma, Mrs. McCloy figured that blasting his favorite heavy-metal band in his hospital room could help revive him.

That, along with plenty of prayers and the knowledge that his wife and two children love him and need him, will help him pull through, Mrs. McCloy said at a news conference. Occasionally smiling and laughing, she added that she found strength in faith and had no doubt that he would recover.

"It's amazing, it's a miracle," she said of his survival. "Faith plays a big role. Without it, we wouldn't be coping. It's given us hope."

Mr. McCloy, 26, of Simpson, survived more than 40 hours in the Sago disaster that killed 12 fellow miners with carbon monoxide intoxication, the medical examiner said.

As families began planning funerals for some co-workers, Mr. McCloy remained in critical condition and had two treatments of hyperbaric oxygen. Doctors hope that will help his brain recover from the effects of a lack of oxygen. Dr. Richard Shannon, chairman of medicine at Allegheny General Hospital, said Mr. McCloy's heart and kidney function and muscle injuries had improved. But he continued to have serious inflammation of the left lung, and doctors will not know the extent of brain damage until he is out of the coma.

Prescott lets 3,600 buildings

take bite out of green belt


October 23, 2005
The Sunday Times

JOHN PRESCOTT, the deputy prime minister, has given the go-ahead to one of the largest building programmes ever to be allowed in the green belt.

The decision to build 3,600 homes and businesses around Stevenage, Hertfordshire, has infuriated environmentalists and residents, who have been campaigning against the plan for a decade.

They say that such decisions undermine the entire system of green belt designation which is meant to protect countryside in perpetuity.

Stevenage council, however, is delighted at Prescott’s decision. The council argues that the town, which has a population of 80,000, is suffering acute shortages of both social housing and larger executive homes.

When I was younger I went drinking in pubs in my area. Because families lived closer together and pubs were frequented by the older generation there was always someone in the pub who knew my family. So if I was out-of-order [ adjectif ] this info would trickle back to my parents. Now we have big city centre pubs with only young people in, families spread around the country and if a youngster drinks too much and started fighting their parents would never know and start disciplining them.

Out of site, out of mind

With new websites launching every day,

it's hard to know if you are missing out on what's hot.

Jack Schofield shows you how to make the most of web-watching services


Thursday June 23, 2005
The Guardian

The curious thing about watching the web is that it is best done by email. The problem is obvious enough: the web is too big for one person to watch. However, there are hundreds of individuals who are watching their particular corner - the bit that interests them - and writing newsletters or weblogs about it. The secret of web-watching is to find people with the expertise you need and tap into it.

Out of sight, out of mind,

but will they stay out of court?

Matthew Engel in Washingon


Short of offering a blank sheet of paper,

it is difficult to convey the supreme indifference

with which the fate of the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay

is being greeted in the United States.

Space cowgirl

Wally Funk was set to become

one of the world's first female astronauts

- until Nasa pulled the plug

on its women's training programme.

Only now, age 63, is she finally going into orbit.

"I feel that Wally flying with us

is a perfect ending to the injustice

she suffered 40 years ago.

Forget the Kennedy assassination,

the biggest conspiracy of the 60s

was keeping women out of space."

Out of Africa


Zimbabwe was once seen

as one of the success stories of Africa after colonialism.

But there are pictures which still tell a tale of division.

In 1999, the issues are black and white,

but also about corruption and class
