Schools in fingerprinting row
Tens of thousands of children are being fingerprinted in school - often wit=
hout the consent of their parents, a human rights group has complained.
Prints are taken for a library lending system which the makers say makes le=
nding more efficient and less vulnerable to abuse.

But the pressure group Privacy International says the practice is illegal a=
nd breaches the human right to privacy.

Love/sexuality entwined

BlankLove/sexuality entwined, not entrapment.

For me, love possesses verve, an energy that is like sexuality, a similar s=
pirit; it looms larger than I and larger than culture and opinion. It is pa=
rt of the dream, the planet, my family and my life. Sexuality has brought m=
e here, a place that seems also afraid of it. The irony is tragic, not like=
theatre or film, it is not simulation or abstract as a socially constructe=
d religion, it is more than illusion, it is very real. Sexuality and love c=
annot be measured, not by rules or a microscope. When placed under the lens=
it withers and dies. Yet when one experiences love
