    With regards to current affairs the best advice I had was to pick a few domestic topics and a topic from each continent...also subscribe to the Week if you can...i have found it much more useful and cheaper than buying a newspaper everyday...it gives all of the big headlines from the past week, an experts opinion on the subject and what the newspapers said and how the situation could develop...by far more useful than a biased newspaper

    For all those still interested, the first MSN Current Affairs study session has been planned for this coming Thursday, August 13th at 7pm.

    Anybody who wishes to get in on this, that hasn't already done so, drop me a message and I'll give you my MSN address.

    I think a few people are interested already, so we should hopefully get some lively discussions going on.

    Cheers,
    Sam J
    Update on this - the first group was a huge success, even though beer was involved:p: . Anyone else who wants to get involved, PM me or Sam with your MSN address (although Sam will be away for a week, so don't expect an immediate reply from him!)

    Next session is at 1900, Tuesday 25th August. Be prepared to discuss Pakistan, plus another topic of your choosing!

    Just a reminder all that this session is still on this evening. If you'd like in, and haven't already done so, drop me or Theo a PM with your MSN address and we'll add you in.

    Update:

    Another great session this evening covering mainly the topics of the release of Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, and the Russian acquisition of Mongolian uranium mines in the recent joint venture.

    The next session has been earmarked for 1930hrs on Wednesday September 9th. Please note the different start time to the previous two sessions.

    Rather than a specific topic, the geographical area we'll be discussing will be Central & South America and any major affairs relating to that region.

    Get swatting!
