"Hello there, mon petit," cooed Martha, the waitress at Jalousie Hilton Resort on St. Lucia. She squeezed Dillon's toes and wiggled his leg. "Aren't you a handsome fellow!" Dillon, 8 months old, gurgled happily and drooled gummed banana on Martha's hand. "And a fine appetite too," she added, as Dillon banged on the highchair tray with a spoon and pushed slobbery bits of fruit onto the floor. Dillon's mother, Sunny, took a deep breath and mopped up the banana with a napkin.

Local politicians, reacting to public uproar, decided today not to send a group of teen-age offenders on a six-month rehabilitation cruise to the Caribbean at taxpayer expense. The social board in the suburb of Kista dropped plans to participate in the cruise after it received a bomb threat. Social Commissioner Ragnar Gotestam later announced on TV that the project had to be canceled because at least two community social boards had changed their minds about the $80,000 cruise on a 53-foot sailing craft to Saint Lucia and other Caribbean islands.

Cuba scored a surprising 3-1 victory over Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday and Jamaica easily defeated Haiti, 3-0, as both countries qualified for the 12-nation CONCACAF Gold Cup, to be co-hosted by the United States and Mexico in July. The Cubans, who earlier had beaten Guadeloupe, 3-2, and Antigua and Barbuda, 2-0, fell behind on a goal by the Soca Warriors' Stern John in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, but recovered to win on goals by Jorge Ramirez, Lestor More and Maykel Galindo.

What: "The Tennis Server" (Tenagra Corp.) Address: http://www.tennisserver.com/ The first click into this site was something of a double fault: "Many thanks to our visitors." What follows is a mind-numbing list of countries. It's nice to know there are tennis fans in Saint Lucia and Moldova and that the good folks in the Faroe Islands have something else to rally around besides the horrid national soccer team. You want design and artistry? Find another web page. But wait . . . it gets better.

The large number of anti-AIDS advertisements that have been posted in Toronto's bus shelters in recent months simply say, "Avoid AIDS." The understatement is typical of the concerned but muted Canadian reaction to the epidemic. Although AIDS is slowly becoming a public issue, the disease has sparked considerably less controversy than in the United States. The focus of public health efforts remains a strong anti-smoking drive.

Victory was small consolation for two Major League Soccer teams Wednesday night. The New England Revolution managed to beat Alajuelense, 3-1, in Alajuela, Costa Rica, but still was knocked out of the CONCACAF Champions Cup after having lost the series' first game, 4-0. Taylor Twellman, Wolde Harris and Steve Ralston gave the Revolution a 3-0 lead and appeared set to tie the series when substitute Rolando Fonseca scored for the Costa Rican champions.

ROME -- Pope Francis named 19 new cardinals Sunday, including a bishop from Haiti and an archbishop from Burkina Faso, a choice the Vatican said showed Francis' determination to focus on the poor. Overall, the pope's first batch of appointments to the College of Cardinals contained 10 men from Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and Africa, reflecting his bid to give the Catholic Church a more global outlook. Just four of the choices hail from inside the Curia - the Vatican's governing body  -  and no churchmen from the U.S. were given the nod for a “red hat.” “This reflects Francis' desire to make the Church more universal and to correct imbalances,” said Gerard O'Connell, a Rome-based contributor to the online publication Vatican Insider.

A UNICEF report released Thursday warns that global development efforts have hit a glass ceiling, and that educating girls is the best way to break through it. Women make most of the decisions that affect a family's health and welfare, and thus a nation's living standard, the report says. Without accelerated action to get more girls into school over the next two years, global goals to reduce poverty and improve the human condition will not be reached, it states.
