107) LARA CROFT, adventurer and archaeolo-gist, flees through an underground cav-ern from a pack of pursuing dogs, only to find her way blocked by a chasm.

110) CHICAGO, July 29 – On a Sun-day morning at a Roman Catholic church here, Mary Hallan Fiorito glanced at a nearby pew to see a woman drinking a can of Coke at Mass. At a musical in a Broadway theater, Alex Wang turned to the row behind him to discover people eating corn on the cob. In schools that once forbade chewing gum, students now bring doughnuts and candy to class – along with chewing gum. Americans seem to be eating all the time, and wherever they please. "Consumers now see eating as something to be done while you do something else," said Bobby Cal-der, a marketing professor at Northwestern University. "Every-body wants to save time by multi-tasking. So you don’t just sit down and eat. You eat while you work, while you’re watching TV, while you drive." The automobile, among the fa-vorite places for people to snack, is well on its way to becoming a rolling dining room. A car is scarcely considered worth driving now without cup holders in the front and back. Some cars now have refrigerated glove-boxes. And within the next six months, the Samsung Corporation plans to market the first microwave for cars and mini-vans. The micro-wave will plug into the cigarette lighter.

114) the Sydney Olympics – billed as the Green Games – open in exactly 64 weeks, on 15 September 2000. In bidding for the Games, the Sydney delegates promised that theirs would be the most environmentally-friendly Games ever. But there are growing doubts that Sydney will deliver on its promises, even though Australia holds a commanding lead in the race to develop key environmentally-friendly technologies. The biggest single obstacle to the Green Games is the site itself. The land around Homebush Bay, in western Sydney, was an industrial graveyard previously used by chemical giants such as ICI and Union Carbide – infamous for the Bhopal plant leak on 3 December 1984 that poisoned thousands in India. Their legacy was toxic waste in unmarked sites. The bodies associated with the bid knew about this, and saw the Games as a way to clean up the mess and create a new community. Thus Sydney’s bid document featured a glorious artist’s impression of a ceremonial entrance on the waterfront, where, beneath fluttering bunting, Olympic athletes and grandees arrive from downtown on eco-friendly water taxis.
