The governing Zanu-PF Party in Zimbabwe and the opposition MDC have met in South Africa, their first encounter since President Mugabe's disputed election victory last month. It's taking place under the mediation of President Thabo Mbeki. From Johannesburg here's Peter Biles.


Both government and opposition in Zimbabwe are under pressure from the African Union to start a process of dialogue on forming a government of national unity. The confirmation that preliminary talks are underway in Pretoria is a first step, but the MDC's Morgan Tsvangirai has insisted that this meeting is only to present the conditions under which genuine negotiations can then take place and a framework for such discussions. He says the MDC will not take part in negotiations until there's an end of violence, the release of more than 1,500 political prisoners and an expanded mediation team that includes a permanent African Union envoy.


The Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak speaking amid growing tension over Iran's nuclear program has warned that his country would not hesitate to defend its own security interests. Mr. Barak was speaking on Israeli radio.


Israel is the strongest country in the region, and as it's proved, it does not recoil from acting when its vital security interests are at stake.

Mr. Barak's comments came after Israel displayed details of what it said was an advanced plane capable of spying on Iran. Earlier Iranian state media said Revolutionary Guards has test-fired more missiles in the Gulf, at least one of which, it said, could hit Tel Aviv.


The US Senate has confirmed President Bush's choice of General David Petraeus as the new supreme commander in the Middle East. As the top US general in Iraq, General Petraeus was credited with having overseen a largely successful surge in American military operations there. He takes over as chief of the U.S. Central Command from Admiral William Fallon, who resigned last month following media reports that he opposed the White House policy on Iran.


Scientists in the United States said they've developed a new way of capturing energy from the Sun that means solar panels can generate ten times as much electricity as they currently do. Our science reporter Matt McGrath has the details.


For years scientists have been trying to improve the efficiency of photovoltaic cells through the use of solar concentrators. These are usually mobile mirrors that track the sun and focus its beams onto the electricity generating cells at the center. But this new technique concentrates the rays using a mixture of dyes that can be painted onto panes of clear glass of plastic. The dyes transport the energy to solar cells that can be placed around the edges of the pane. The scientists say these new clear solar concentrators could be used to replace windows generating ten times the amount of electricity. The scientists expect them to be on the market within three years.


World News from the BBC;


The United Nations has said the barrier that Israel is building in the West Bank will have devastating consequences for Palestinians if it's completed along its proposed route. And in a new report the UN said building the barrier inside the West Bank rather than along the Israeli border meant tens of thousands of Palestinians had already been cut off from their jobs, farmland or essential services. Israel says the barrier is needed to keep out Palestinian attackers.


Georgia is to recall its ambassador from Russia for consultations after Moscow admitted its fighter jets had entered Georgian airspace earlier this week. Georgia said it would take aggressive diplomatic steps to respond to the Russian action.

From Tbilisi Mathew Collin reports;


Georgia's Foreign Minister, Eka Tkeshelashvili, told the BBC the ambassador was being recalled because Russia had committed what she called a very grave act of aggression, which was a clear violation of the country's sovereignty. Moscow admitted it had sent its air force in the Georgian airspace. The Russian foreign ministry said it's dispatched its fighter jets in its words to cool hot-heads in Tbilisi.


One of the most popular news presenters on French television, Patrick Poivre d'Arvor, has broadcast his last bulletin. He's presented the evening news on Channel TFN since 1987. The announcement last month that he'll be replaced by a younger female news reader was itself  headline news in France.


The hand-painted drum heads that appeared on the cover of the legendary 1967 Beatles' album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" has sold at auction in London for more than a million dollars, also at the sale of Rock & Pop Memorabilia at Christie's Auction House were handwritten lyrics to the John Lennon's song" Give Peace a Chance".

2. Movement for Democratic Change (MDC)

 

The Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) is a Zimbabwean political party. It was founded in 1999 as an opposition party to the Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF) party led by President Robert Mugabe. The MDC was formed from many members of the broad coalition of civic society groups and individuals that campaigned for a "No" vote in the 2000 constitutional referendum, in particular the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Unions.

 

The party split following the 2005 Senate election, with one faction headed by Morgan Tsvangirai and the other by Arthur Mutambara; the two factions subsequently won a combined majority in the March 2008 parliamentary election and announced that they were reuniting in April 2008.

Photovoltaics (PV) is the field of technology and research related to the application of solar cells for energy by converting sunlight directly into electricity. Due to the growing need for solar energy, the manufacture of solar cells and photovoltaic arrays has expanded dramatically in recent years. Photovoltaic production has been doubling every two years, increasing by an average of 48 percent each year since 2002, making it the world’s fastest-growing energy technology.

 

At the end of 2007, according to preliminary data, cumulative global production was 12,400 megawatts. Roughly 90% of this generating capacity consists of grid-tied electrical systems. Such installations may be ground-mounted (and sometimes integrated with farming and grazing) or built into the roof or walls of a building, known as Building Integrated Photovoltaic or BIPV for short.Financial incentives, such as preferential feed-in tariffs for solar-generated electricity and net metering, have supported solar PV installations in many countries including Germany, Japan, and the United States.

More Efficient Solar Energy Collectors Attach to Windows

 

A new, compact way to collect sunlight from windows and focus it to generate more electricity could make those multiple expensive rooftop solar panels a thing of the past.

The solar panels that cover the tops of some buildings today contain photovoltaic cells that convert sunlight into electricity. Unlike burning coal, collecting and converting solar energy releases no greenhouse gases, which warm the atmosphere. Limited efficiency and high construction costs have kept solar from producing more than about 0.07 percent of U.S. energy needs in 2007, according to figures from the U.S. Department of Energy.

Solar concentrators can be used to increase the electrical power obtained from the photovoltaic cells. But most concentrators in use today "track the sun to generate high optical intensities, often by using large mobile mirrors that are expensive to deploy and maintain," said MIT's Marc A. Baldo, who led the team that created the new type of solar concentrator.

New approach

Instead of covering a large area with solar cells, the new method only requires locating cells around the edges of a flat glass panel.

The MIT solar concentrator involves a mixture of two or more dyes painted onto a pane of glass or plastic. The dyes absorb light across a range of wavelengths, reemit it at a different wavelength and transport it across the pane to the solar cells at the edges.

"Light is collected over a large area [like a window] and gathered, or concentrated, at the edges," Baldo said.

Focusing the light like this increases the electrical power generated by each solar cell "by a factor of 40," he added.

The work was funded by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science.

Old idea

Scientists had tried using similar solar concentrators in the 1970s, but abandoned the idea when not enough of the collected light reached the edges of the concentrator. The MIT engineers revamped the idea by using a mixture of dyes in specific ratios, which allows some level of control over how the light is transmitted.

"We made it so the light can travel a much longer distance," said study team member Jon Mapel, an MIT graduate student. "We were able to substantially reduce light transport losses, resulting in a tenfold increase in the amount of power converted by the solar cells."

Because the system, detailed in the July 11 issue of the journal Science, is simple to manufacture, the team thinks that it can be implemented within three years. It could also be added on to existing solar-panel systems, increasing their efficiency and reducing the cost of solar energy.

Beatles drum skin, Lennon lyrics star at auction

 

LONDON (Reuters) - The hand-painted drum skin that appeared on the sleeve of the Beatles' ground-breaking 1967 album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" sold for $1.1 million at auction on Thursday, four times its estimate.

 

Billed as the "world's most famous drum skin," it was the star lot of Christie's rock and pop memorabilia sale in London, and eclipsed the other highlight, John Lennon's handwritten lyrics for hit song "Give Peace a Chance."

The manuscript still fetched $834,000, well above pre-sale expectations of around $500,000.

It was sold by comedy writer and presenter Gail Renard, who was 16 when Lennon and Yoko Ono staged their famous "Bed-In" at a hotel in Montreal in 1969.

Renard and a friend sneaked into the Queen Elizabeth Hotel where the recently married Lennon and Ono were holding a protest for peace, and became friendly with the couple.

According to Christie's, Lennon gave Renard some mementos, including the lyrics, telling her: "One day they will be worth something."

Renard, now 54, said the price fetched for the manuscript had left her speechless.

"I never in a million years thought it would make the estimate," she told Reuters. "I thought, 'Who would want to pay for that? There's a credit crunch'."

She described Lennon's warmth and generosity, and how he helped launch her career as a journalist by calling the Beatles Monthly magazine at the time and instructing them to pay for a piece she was writing on the star.

"If John said I'm a writer, I thought I must be," she said. "The lyrics have a price, his friendship doesn't."

Renard also recalled how her mother demanded to speak to Lennon.

"My mother told me to put him on the phone, and she made it clear (that he was) to keep me away from the temptations of life."

During the "Bed-In" for peace in Montreal, which followed a similar stunt in Amsterdam, Lennon and Ono opened their doors to the world's media.

The highlight of the event came when Lennon led the recording of one of the world's most recognizable anthems "Give Peace a Chance."

When Lennon saw television footage of nearly half a million anti-Vietnam war protesters singing the song outside the White House in November 1969, he considered it to be "one of the biggest moments of my life," Christie's said.
