* * An item “Increase in natural gas price” (May 20, 2010, page 1) was “The Centre has more than doubled the price of natural gas produced by ONGC and OIL to $4.20 per mmBtu.” It should have been “mBtu”.

* * The second paragraph of a PTI report “‘Dinosaurs swallowed stones as digestive pills'” (May 20, 2010) was “‘Apart from eggs and dinosaur fossils, we have recovered 120 small shining stones of 2.5 diametre in the neighbouring Dhar district,' Mangal Panchayatan Parishad chief Vishal Verma told PTI on Wednesday.” It should have been “of 2.5 inch diameter”.

* * The first paragraph of a report “A memorable visit for Cubbon's descendant” (Some editions, May 15, 2010) described Sir Mark Cubbon to be the British resident of the then Mysore State. He was the Commissioner of Mysore (1834-1861).

The fourth paragraph said “... just a few hundred metres away is a stone plaque which bears the new name of the park — Jayachamarajendra Wadiyar Park.” The park is named after Maharaja H.H. Chamaraja Wadiyar (1881-1894) on the occasion of the silver jubilee celebration of the rule of his son Maharaja Krishna Raja Wadiyar IV in 1927. A statue of the Maharaja was also installed in the park.

* * The former Editor of Free Press Journal is Arun Sadhu, and not Aru Sadhu as published in the fourth paragraph of “Ambedkar film: better late than never” (“Online and Off Line”, May 24, 2010).

* * In a standalone photograph titled “Summer effect” (Some Andhra Pradesh editions, May 20, 2010, page 5), the birds in the picture were not ducks but Chinese Geese. (Chinese Geese appear in two varieties: a brown and white.)

* * The standalone graphic “World Cup records” (“Sport”, May 19, 2010), said that Brazil has “19 Tournament appearances”. The figure is right. The statistic includes the 2010 edition as well.
