4,000 Brazilians evacuated as dike bursts after heavy rains (in English) 6

1. 4,000 BRAZILIANS EVACUATED


AS DIKE BURSTS AFTER HEAVY
RAINS (IN ENGLISH)
by Shasta Darlington, CNN

B
razilian authorities on Thursday said they were evacuating 4,000
people in the state of Rio de Janeiro after days of heavy rains burst a
river dike.

According to the Municipal Civil Defense, floodwaters opened up a 20-meter-


wide crater in the highway outside of Campos dos Goytacazes, which is about
275 kilometers (170 miles) northeast of the coastal city of Rio de Janeiro.

Heavy rains across southern and central Brazil have also wreaked havoc in the
state of Minas Gerais, an inland state to the southeast of the nation's capital
of Brasilia.

This wet weather spurred mudslides and flooding that earlier killed eight
people and forced another 10,000 to leave their homes. This state has
declared a state of emergency in 71 towns.

January is usually a month with heavy rains. A year ago, more than 800 people
died due to floods in the state of Rio de Janeiro.

Picasso, Mondrian works stolen in Athens art heist (in English) 10

2. PICASSO, MONDRIAN WORKS


STOLEN IN ATHENS ART HEIST
(IN ENGLISH)
by Bryony Jones, CNN

A
Pablo Picasso painting given to the Greek people in recognition of
their resistance to Nazi occupation during World War II has been stolen
from the National Art Gallery in Athens.

"Head of a Woman," painted in 1939, was among three works taken in the
early morning heist on Monday, the authorities said. A fourth work was
dropped by the thief, or thieves, during their getaway.

The Picasso portrait, which depicts a woman in a white blouse against a blue
background, is inscribed on the reverse: "For the Greek people, a tribute from
Picasso." It was donated by the artist in 1946.

Greek police say the raider, or raiders, also made off with Piet Mondrian's
"Landscape with a mill," and a pen-and-ink sketch of San Diego de Alcala in
ecstasy by Renaissance artist Guglielmo Caccia.

"Landscape with a farm," a second figurative painting by Dutch artist Mondrian


-- who is better known for his abstract works -- was left behind as the burglar
ran away.

Officers say the intruder, or intruders, interfered with the alarm system
several times overnight, setting it off repeatedly so that it was disabled by
the museum guards.

At about 4.30am local time (06:30 GMT), the raider(s) broke into the gallery's
temporary exhibition area through an aluminum-framed door on a balcony.

During the theft, a motion detector was activated, alerting a guard who
chased one thief, but was unable to catch him.

The raid led Citizen's Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis to criticize


security at the gallery, which is home to works by Auguste Rodin, Henri
Matisse and Peter Paul Rubens.

"I am very sorry because an artwork of huge value was stolen," news agency
Agence France-Presse quoted Papoutsis as saying. "This incident should
prompt a re-evaluation of the National Gallery's security arrangements."

Athens' National Art Gallery showcases works from the 14th to the 20th
centuries, and is best known for its collections of Greek and Renaissance art,
including paintings by El Greco, Tiepolo and Brueghel.

The theft took place on the final day of an exhibition entitled "Unknown
Treasures," which had featured prints and etchings by Albrecht Duerer and
Rembrandt van Rijn.

While binge drinking is more common among those with household incomes in
excess of $75,000, the largest number of drinks consumed per occasion was
greatest for those with household incomes of less than $25,000. Also

somewhat surprising: while binge drinking is most common among 18-34 year-
olds when those 65+ binge drink they do so more frequently.

Dr. Robert Brewer, Alcohol Program Lead for the National Center for Chronic
Disease Prevention and Health promotion, noted that many binge drinkers are
college students, high school students, active military and medical students.

According to the report, more than half of the alcohol adults drink is
consumed while binge drinking and more than 90% of the alcohol young people
drink is while binge drinking.

Binge drinking, among other things, can lead to unplanned pregnancy, the
spread of STDs, SIDS, and of course alcohol dependence. Excessive alcohol
consumption in men increases the risk of cancer of the mouth, throat,
esophagus, liver, and colon. Women are more vulnerable to brain, heart, and

Drought poses risk to corn, soybeans in Argentina (in English) 28

5. DROUGHT POSES RISK TO


CORN, SOYBEANS IN
ARGENTINA (IN ENGLISH)
from Guillermo Fontana, CNN

R
ain in Argentina on Tuesday brought some relief to the drought-
stricken central part of the country, but concerns remained.

The persistent dry spell, blamed on La Nia, has not only worried
agricultural producers, but could affect tax revenues, officials say.

Two of the crops most affected by the drought, corn and soybeans, are
important revenue-makers for the government through taxes, said Carlos
Casamiquela, director of the National Institute of Agricultural Technology.

If the soybean crops are damaged as much as some forecasts predict and
international prices rise, the revenue the government can pull in would be
affected, he said.

The minister of agriculture, Norberto Yahuar, asked for calm until a clearer
picture emerges. Government aid would be available to those affected by the
drought, he said.

Yahuar called a meeting of the country's agricultural emergency commission


on Thursday to evaluate the situation, he said. The true amount and cost of
the damages caused by the weather likely will not be known until mid-
February, he said.

Cordoba, Sante Fe, and areas west of Buenos Aires only received about 20% of
normal precipitation in December, CNN meteorologist Taylor Ward said.

The drought has been worsened by an ongoing heat wave, he said.

Temperatures in Buenos Aires have been above 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees
Fahrenheit) for the past 15 days, Ward said. The average high temperature
there is 28 degrees Celsius (82 degrees Fahrenheit).
