  • New Seamus Heaney poem published  —   ”Guardian publishes In a Field ahead of its appearance in anthology marking centenary of outbreak of first world war. It describes a man coming home from war:

    In buttoned khaki and buffed army boots,
    Bruising the turned-up acres of our back field
    To stumble from the winding’s magic ring. …”
  • The global war on thinking bad thoughts  — “Can America really win the battle against Islamic extremism?”
  • Government actively looking into reforming ganja law  — “Justice Minister Senator Mark Golding has said active consideration is being given to reforming the law relating to ganja in Jamaica to allow its use, but within certain parameters.”
