A jury in the western American state of California has found musician Michael Jackson not guilty of sex acts with children.
The jury announced the decision after seven days of discussions. The trial lasted for three and a half months. The jury found Mr. Jackson not guilty of giving alcohol to a thirteen-year-old boy and then attempting sex acts with him. The jury also found Mr. Jackson not guilty of holding the boy's family at his large home. Government lawyers said Mr. Jackson had a history of sexual wrongdoing with young boys. The musician and performer denied the charges.

カリフォルニア州で少年に対する性的虐待などの罪に問われた米歌手、マイケル・ジャクソン被告に対して陪審員は無罪という表決を下した。7日間にわたる審議を経て、その表決に達した。裁判は3ヵ月半にも及ぶものだった。陪審員は被告が13歳の少年に酒を飲ませ、性的暴力を行った件について無罪を下し、さらに少年の家族を自らの家に監禁していた件に関しても無罪を決定した。政府弁護士はジャクソン被告は少年に対する制的虐待い経験を持っていると主張したが、ジャクソン被告は否定した。

SARAH SCHOFIELD: As part of their assessment, the students must perform a solo piece, which they can either create themselves, or they can take a soliloquy from an existing play or a set monologue.

Caitlin Murphy has been studying acting since she was a small child, and wants to make acting her career.

CAITLIN MURPHY, KIRRAWEE HIGH SCHOOL, SYDNEY: Getting here, it's a dream. It's come true, and it's really made me want to push for my dreams, and my goal in life is to work in performing arts and theatre. It's been a really good thing for me.

SARAH SCHOFIELD: The HSC assessment also includes a group piece, where the students create a play from scratch, which is at least 12 minutes long.

STEPHEN THOMAS: They have to learn to work in a group. They have to learn to lead, to be led, to take responsibility, and they are life skills. They are the sort of things you need in any job, being able to work in a corporate environment and take responsibility for the decisions you make, and to listen to other people who may have suggestions.

GAVIN SELWAY, ILLAWARRA GRAMMAR SCHOOL, WOLLONGONG: We never imagined getting here. We joked about it. But, you know, we are here. It's pretty full on; like, big days, big nights. It's so rewarding, it's so worth it, you know.

Last year 5,000 year 12 students in New South Wales studied drama. Of those, only 47 were selected to perform at the Seymour Theatre in Sydney. Every year students look forward to it coming. As part of their assessment, the students must perform a solo piece and group piece. They think it's been relly good time for them.

SARAH SCHOFIELD: Last year over 5,000 year 12 students in New South Wales studied drama. Of those, only 47 were selected to perform at the Seymour Theatre Centre in Sydney. The performances were held twice daily this week, and all were sold out. The audience is made up of drama students and teachers.

GERRY PACKER, ABBOTSLEIGH SYDNEY: Well, I'm studying drama in year 12 at Abbotsleigh and, yeah, I'm coming to look at what people have done this year, and to get some ideas and motivation for this year 'cause I'm in year 12 this year.

CATHY O'GORMAN, ST CLARE'S HIGH SCHOOL, TAREE: Every year they look forward to it coming. I bring year 11 and 12. Sometimes it's intimidating for them. I always remind them it's the best of the best.

SARAH SCHOFIELD: The young people have come from Dubbo, Byron Bay, Wollongong, Armidale and from schools throughout the Sydney basin.

STEPHEN THOMAS, SUPERVISOR BOARD OF SENIOR STUDIES: It's an opportunity for the students to show their wares, and to validate the process; so it's not just something that's locked in the vacuum of an examination period. They can actually get up and perform it, or present it publicly, because it's very easy to think "Well, I'm just doing this as part of my HSC examination, no one's going to see it, I'm just doing it for the marks".

British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw says his government has suspended plans to hold a special vote on the new European constitution. He told Parliament the French and Dutch voters' rejection of the constitution has weakened the law's future. Mr. Straw said EU delegates should discuss the rejection at its meeting later this month before Britain holds the vote. The EU conference is planned for June sixteenth. A spokesman for Britain's main opposition Conservative party says the EU constitution is now dead. But, EU President Jean-Claude Juncker says the new law can still be effective.

French President Jacques Chirac will speak to his nation Tuesday night. He is expected to say what steps he will take after French voters rejected the proposed constitution for the European Union. The vote was held Sunday. Mr. Chirac met with Interior Minister Dominique de Villepin and other political officials Monday. The French leader was expected to ask one of them to form a new government. French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin is likely to resign over the vote.

フランスのシラク大統領は、火曜夜、国民に対してスピーチを行う模様で、これはフランス有権者のEU憲法否決の対応のついて述べるだろうと思われます。投票は日曜日に行われました。シラク大統領は月曜日に、内務大臣ドミニク・ビルパン氏や他の官僚たちと会合を持ちました。シラク大統領は、そのうちの一人に新政権の発足のついて意見を求めるつもりでした。
フランスのラファラン首相は投票結果の後に辞職を表明する模様です。

さて、今夜はますます問題化しつつあるコンピュータ・ウイルスについてお話ししたいと思います。さらに重要なこととして、この、現代のテクノロジーがもたらした恐ろしい災厄の犠牲者にならずにすむ方法をご紹介したいと思います。
まず最初に、この奇妙な新問題の歴史と発展過程について述べ、次に、問題を引き起こしているいくつかの特定のウイルスについてお話しします。そして最後に、これらのウイルスを防ぐためにどうやってコンピュータを守るかという点についてもお話しするつもりです。その前に、細菌ウイルスとコンピュータ・ウイルスとの主な違いですが、後者は人工的なものです。自然に繁殖するなどということはありません。
