Missing: A Memoir
A twenty-five-year-old recent graduate of Columbia University’s MFA program, Lindsay Harrison began writing Missing as a way to cope with a terrible loss. During her sophomore year at Brown University, Lindsay received a phone call from her brother that her mother was missing. Forty days later they discover the unthinkable: Their mother’s body had been found in the ocean.
Missing is at first a page-turning account of those first forty days, as it chronicles dealings with detectives, false sightings, wild hope, and deep despair. The balance of the story is a candid, emotional exploration of a daughter’s search for solace after tragedy as she tries to understand who her mother truly was, makes peace with her grief, and becomes closer to her father and brothers as her mother’s death forces her to learn more about her mother than she ever knew before.

Chile tenta se levantar apos terremoto com mais de 700 mortos CONCEPCION, Chile (Reuters) O Chile tentava nesta segunda-feira se levantar apos o forte terremoto e varios tsunamis que deixaram mais de 700 mortos, apagaram do mapa povoados inteiros e obrigaram o governo a colocar militares nas ruas para combater os saques. Mas o caos ainda reinava na regiao central do Chile, onde dezenas de milhares de pessoas passaram a segunda noite na intemperie por temor de mais replicas, depois do terremoto que destruiu casas, derrubou pontes e alterou suas vidas. O numero oficial de mortos pelo sismo subiu para 711, enquanto cenas horripilantes de destruicao emergiam em cidades isoladas, encharcadas por ondas gigantes provocadas por um dos terremotos mais violentos em um seculo. Cerca de 1,5 milhao de casas foram danificadas e mais de 2 milhoes - ou 12,5% dos 16 milhoes de habitantes do Chile - foram afetados. Ha muitos desaparecidos, e algumas cidades permanecem isoladas. O maremoto causado pelo tremor destruiu casas e carros em aldeias de pescadores na longa costa chilena. So na cidade de Constitucion houve cerca de 350 mortos, disseram funcionarios de emergencia a TV local. Um toque de recolher noturno entrou em vigor na regiao de Maule e na cidade de Concepcion, onde centenas de saqueadores atacaram lojas em busca de comida e outros produtos. Em Concepcion, sobreviventes acampados nas calcadas descontaram sua frustracao em bombeiros que distribuiam agua potavel em garrafas termicas e chaleiras, danificando seus veiculos. A policia prendeu varias pessoas por realizarem saques e violarem o toque de recolher. IMPACTO NOS MERCADOS Devido a preocupacoes com o abastecimento de cobre, do qual o Chile e o maior exportador mundial, a cotacao do produto atingiu seu maior valor em cinco semanas na London Metal Exchange. Acoes de mineradoras tambem tiveram alta. Os mercados podem ajudar a esclarecer a dimensao do impacto economico no Chile, pais mais desenvolvido da America Latina. A empresa Eqecat, especializada em ajudar seguradoras a avaliar riscos de catastrofes, disse que o prejuizo com o terremoto pode alcancar 30 bilhoes de dolares, ou 15 por cento do PIB chileno. O Japao anunciou uma doacao de 3 milhoes de dolares ao Chile, junto com o envio de tendas, geradores, purificadores de agua e outros equipamentos de emergencia. A China prometeu 1 milhao de dolares. O aeroporto de Santiago comecou a receber voos internacionais, que haviam sido suspensos depois do terremoto. As autoridades disseram que as pistas ficaram ilesas, mas que o terminal foi danificado. Alguns economistas previram um profundo impacto na economia do pais, ja que nas regioes mais afetadas o terremoto abalou as estruturas industriais e agricolas.

It has many missing people, and some cities remain isolated. The tidal wave caused for the tremor destroyed houses and cars in fishing villages in the long Chilean coast. Only in the city of Constitucion had about 350 deceased, had said employees of emergency to the local TV. A touch to collect nocturnal entered in law in the region of Maule and the city of Concepcion, where hundreds of plunderers had attacked store in search of food and other products. In Concepcion, survivors camped in the sidewalk had deducted their frustration in firemen who given drinking waters in thermal bottles and kettles, damaging its vehicles. The policy arrested some people for carrying through booties and violating the touch to collect. IMPACT IN THE MARKETS Had the concerns with the copper supplying, of which Chile is world-wide the exporting greater, the quotation of the product reached its bigger value in five weeks in the London Exchange Metal. Actions of these also had high. The markets can help to clarify the dimension of the economic impact in Chile, developed country more of Latin America.

MISSING - DVD Movie
The peril facing a lone American amid Third World political turmoil is elegantly communicated in this important film from Costa-Gavras (Z), adapted by the director and Donald Stewart from Thomas Hauser's nonfiction book. The key to its power onscreen stems from the decision not to center the action merely on the disappearance of Charles Horman (John Shea), but also on the search for him by his father Ed (Jack Lemmon)--and on Ed's discovery of a son he never knew. The Oscar-winning script flows freely between that search and Charles's earlier experiences in the unnamed country (in the true account, Chile). Providing a link between those two stories is Charles's wife Beth (Sissy Spacek), who follows her father-in-law around a country in chaos, teeming with reckless authority and disinterested American diplomats (epitomized by ace character actor David Clennon). The film, which was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar and won the Cannes Film Festival's top prize, is certainly manipulative, but it works because of its finely detailed human elements. Usually emotionally extroverted, Lemmon gives one of his finest performances playing against that type--here, he's a controlled, intellectual man who learns more about his son, and his country, than he ever dreamed he would. --Doug Thomas
