Uganda president believes gays Are sick

KAMPALA (AFP) – Ugandan President Yoweri
Museveni views gays as “sick” but doesnot believe
they should be jailed or executed and will block a
push by parliament to impose tough penalties, his
spokesman said Friday.

“He does notapprove of homosexuality but he
believesthatthese people have a right to exist,”
presidential spokesman Tamale Mirudi told AFP.

“The president says that these people are sick, you
cannot kill a sick person. A person that has been
found guilty of homosexual practicescannot be
imprisoned for life.”

The spokesman confirmed a report in the
independent DailyMonitor newspaper that
Museveni had refused to approve a controversial
bill passed by parliament last month that would
have seen homosexualsjailed for life.

He also insisted that the president wasnot backing
down in the face of widespread international
condemnation of the bill.

“What the President hasbeing sayingis that we
shall not persecute these homosexuals and
lesbians. That is the point. That is the message.
Maybe society can resent them but theycannot be
persecuted because of their problem,”Mirudi said.

“It wasnot because of a lobby. Nobody has
influenced the president. The president’s position
has been the same for a long time, nothing has
changed,” he added.

“The president has repeatedly said that we always
have been having homosexualsin Africa and they
never have been persecuted. But we shall not allow
them to marryin public, to organise a
demonstration in Kampala,”the spokesman said.

I’M HERE TO STAY I BELONG TO CHELSEA- MOURINHO

The Special One has been well
travelled on his journey to global
renown but now insists he is ready to
settle down in the city and club he
loves
Jose Mourinho insists he wants to stay at
Chelsea for a long time and says he has given
no thought to the next step in his managerial
career.
Trophy-laden spells at Stamford Bridge, Porto,
Inter and Real Madrid have established
Mourinho as one of the most respected
coaches in the world, if a slightly nomadic one.
But now managing in west London for the
second time, Mourinho is adamant he is ready
to settle down in his personal and professional
life.
He told London’s Evening Standard: “I’m not
here thinking about my next move because I
don’t want to have a next move. I’m here to
stay. I belong to Chelsea, Chelsea belong to
me.
“I think London is the only place in Europe
where I can keep these little things of life. I
can go to school and wait for my son and
daughter and the parents feel me as another
parent.
“I can go to walk on Sloane Street or Old Bond
Street and if somebody disturbs me it is not an
English person for sure. I can go to a
restaurant, I can go to a cab and the driver be
an Arsenal or Tottenham supporter and he
enjoys speaking with me. This is not possible in
Italy and Spain!”
The full exclusive interview is in tonight’s
Evening Standard which from today is available
across all 33 boroughs in the capital with the
Standard stepping up its print run to 900,000
copies over the next few weeks.

Caffeine pill ‘could boost memory’

A US study has raised the possibility that we may one day rely on caffeine to boost memory as well as to wake up.

The research, published in Nature Neuroscience, tested the memories of 160 people over 24 hours.

It found those who took caffeine tablets, rather than dummy pills, fared better on the memory tests.

But experts warned people to remember caffeine could cause negative effects, such as jitteriness and anxiety.

The Johns Hopkins University study involved people who did not regularly eat or drink caffeinated products.

Saliva samples were taken, to check base levels of caffeine, then participants were asked to look at a series of images.

Five minutes later they were given either a 200-milligram caffeine tablet – equivalent to the caffeine in a large cup of coffee, according to the researchers – or a dummy pill.

Saliva samples were taken again one, three and 24 hours later.

The next day, both groups were also tested on their ability to recognise the previous day’s images.
