= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =


Although the government of President Robert Mugabe, in power since Zimbabwe attained independence from Britain in 1980, has been roundly accused of repression, lack of democracy and running down the once booming economy, it initially achieved significant successes. The major success was in the field of education, where Mugabe and his ruling ZANU PF party introduced a policy of education for all in 1980. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

10. Travel: Airline meals
= = = = = = = = = = = =

Several decades ago, airline meals may have been the main reason that planes carried airline sickness bags, but in the past few years the food has improved by leaps and bounds from an international perspective.

As a banner on the homepage declares, this is "the world's first and leading site about nothing but airline food." Amazingly enough, there is a section on the site dedicated to airline catering news and another one where visitors can discuss various issues related to airline food. The real focus of the site are the almost 11,000 images of various airline meals, culled from 439 airlines, taken by a host of contributors. Here visitors may compare the relative merits of recent meals offered by Air India to those offered by Royal Jordanian Airlines.

Of course, visitors will definitely want to take a gander at the advertisements of airline food from the past and the behind- the-scenes look of the world of airline catering. Visit this site.
