>>A quote attributed to Georgetown University scholar C. Christine Fair in the report, “U.N. monitors say Taliban sanctions failing” (Dec. 5, 2013), read: “The important lesson here is that while the war has to be fought in Pakistan, the pressure points are outside it, …” It should have been Afghanistan.

>>There was a reference to Sir Andre Geim’s (joint Nobel Prize 2010 winner) research in nano carbon called grapheme in the report, “Nano park coming up in Bangalore” (Dec. 6, 2013). Actually, it is graphene. Grapheme is “the class of letters and other visual symbols that represent a phoneme or a cluster of phonemes.” For example: the f in fun, the ph in phantom, and he gh in laugh. Graphene is a form of carbon.

>>The heading, “Locals suffer as India, Nepal crack down on illegal cross-border trade” (Dec. 8, 2013, some editions), was misleading. The crackdown is by India and not Nepal. Nowhere does the report suggest that Nepal has cracked down on illegal trade. The data provided is also from an Indian agency (the Sashastra Seema Bal).
