The government is making no efforts to reduce the control of information. Burma remains one of the most hostile countries to the private press,” said Robert Ménard, general secretary of Reporters Without Borders in a letter sent to colonel Tin Hlaing, Minister of the Interior of the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC). Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association (BMA, an organization of exiled Burmese journalists) deplore the sanctions taken against the publications Living Color, Mhyar Nat Maung Mingalar and Kyi pwar yee. The two organizations called on the minister to immediately repeal these decisions and stop censoring information.According to information obtained by Reporters Without Borders and the BMA, the Literary Scrutiny Board banned the publication of the magazines Living Color, Mhyar Nat Maung Mingalar and Kyi pwar yee during the month of June 2002. According to the independent monthly Irrawaddy, the business magazine Living Color was sanctioned for having published an advertisement by the MK Billiard Company. This company is said to be in conflict with the military junta’s Minister of Sport for refusing to give equipment to the official billiard association. Founded in 1995, Living Color, whose managing director is the son of lieutenant general Khin Nyunt, had never been sanctioned before. In addition, the Literary Scrutiny Board banned Kyi pwar yee for using the word Yodaya (the former name for Thailand) in its latest issue. The Literary Scrutiny Board told publishers of private publications in Rangoon on 22 May 2002 that it was forbidden to publish articles or advertisements concerning Thailand. This decision followed recent military and diplomatic tension between the two countries. Finally, the magazine Mhyar Nat Maung Mingalar was banned for publishing an advertisement on the page that was reserved for SPDC propaganda. This magazine, published since 1991, publishes essentially women’s news and short stories.

Since April 6, when lightning started a wildfire in the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge, thousands of area families have evacuated their homes to protect themselves from the fire.Flames aren’t the only the only health risk posed by large wildfires like the West Mims Fire, which has scorched more than 140,000 acres surrounding the park near the Florida-Georgia border.Dry conditions are expected in south Georgia over the next few weeks, so the West Mims Fire may be burning for some time.The smoke and fine particles sent into the air during wildfires can also cause serious problems for members of the public with lung issues, like asthma, and for healthy people alike. It’s important to think about smoky conditions when planning outdoor chores or activities.People with heart and lung diseases, older adults and children are at greater risk from exposure to ozone and particles in the air. Symptoms of inhaling air of severely poor quality include coughing, throat soreness, difficulty breathing, aggravated asthma and permanent lung damage due to prolonged exposure.For older adults, children and those who suffer from heart and lung diseases, asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), taking simple steps can reduce exposure to unhealthy air.The Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge is posting fire updates and daily updates on air quality at inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/5153.Limit outdoor activities if it is hazy or smoky outside. Get creative with your kids — play hide and seek inside or go camping in your living room.Keep your home and vehicle windows and doors closed as much as possible.When driving in your vehicle, press the recirculate button in your car to prevent the smoky air from getting inside.If you smoke cigarettes, limit smoking as much as possible. Tobacco smoke is a pollutant and greatly contributes to poor air quality.Do not rely on paper dust masks for protection. These masks do not protect your lungs from the small particles found in wildfire smoke.If you are especially sensitive to poor air quality, contact your healthcare provider for additional tips on staying healthy despite the poor air quality.Remember to follow these tips from University of Georgia Cooperative Extension as you try to reduce your exposure to unhealthy air.Tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for protecting yourself from wildfire smoke are available at www.cdc.gov/features/wildfires.(Alexis Roberts and Kristen Sumpter, Family and Consumer Sciences agents with UGA Extension, contributed to this article.)
