Employees learn to read
through literacy program


By Heather Reister
Contributing Writer


Reading and writing are such
simple tasks. most people take them
for granted.

For others. however. words can
be immovable obstacles that shut
otherwise qualified workers out of
job interviews and promotions.

UK’s Operation Iiducate was
founded in 1086 to fight this para-
lyzing illiteracy by pairing tutors
with full-time University employ-
ees who want to learn how to read.

The program. which is operated
in conjunction with Fayette County

Operation Read and the Fayette
County Adult Education Program,
also helps employees earn General

Wilkinson trial set to start today


By Mark R. Chellgren
Associated Press


FRANKFORT. Ky. — The neph-
ew of former Gov. Wallace Wilkin-
son is scheduled to go on trial today
in the first court case of the federal
corruption investigation of Ken-
tucky state govemment.

Bruce Wilkinson is charged with
using his position as an aide to his
uncle to influence the resolution of
a dispute over intertrack wagering
authority between Ellis Park and
Riverside Downs. both in Hender-
son. He has pleaded innocent to
conspiracy to commit extortion and
mail fraud.

If convicted of the two charges
against him, Wilkinson could be
sentenced to 25 years in prison and
fined $500,000.

The case will be watched closely

The charges against Wilkinson
involve the controversy that is at

this point.

Diabetes not likely to strike students m


By Clndy Fischler
Contributing Writer

More titan 500,000 Americans
are diagnosed with diabetes each
year, and most of those cases are in

The good news for UK students.

however. is that they are not likely
candidates for developing the dis-
Although Dr. Dennis Karounos. a
UK endocrinologist specializing in
diabetes, said “anybody. at any age
is at risk" of getting diabetes. most
cases don't occur in young adults.

Dr. Michael Eden. 3 family prac-
titioner at UK‘s Family Medical
Center. said there are two types of
diabetes: type one devekrps be-
tween childhood and early adult-
hood. with the majority of cases de-
veloping before the age of 20: type
two develops in adults between the
ages of 40 and 50 who are severely



The two types differ not just in
when they develop but also in how
they develop. Type one diabetes re-
sults when the body develops an
immunity to insulinproducing
cells, Karounos said.

He said there are three steps in
the development of this type. First.
patients must inherit certain genes
that would make them susceptible
to the disease.

Second. the patients must come
in contact with environmental fac-
tors that activate the genes for dia-
betes. These factors include certain
viruses. allergies to some foods and
a rat poisoning called Vacor that
can destroy insulin-prtxlucing cells.

Finally. one must develop an im-
munity to insulin-producing cells.

In type two diabetes. Karounos
said there also are three steps. First.
the body devekrps an impure secre-
tion of insulin. Second. body tissues

become less responsive to the insu—
lin. Finally. the liver begins produc-
ing too much glucose.

Fach type has different effects on
the body.

Karounos said type one results in
a lack of insulin. which means the
body can‘t metabolize sugar. As a
result. tissue cells begin bunting fat
as a source of energy.

The kidneys then excrete large
amouan of sugar. which makes the
body lose water and causes dehy-
dration. As the body loses water.
important minerals also are lost.

“Ultimately." Karounos said.
“one can develop coma and die.“

In type two. he said the effects
are decreased energy and blurred
vision. Eden added that diabetes is
the leading cause of blindness and
kidney disease and is “a major con-
tributor to heart disease."

Clear beer next in avalanche '
of new transparent products


By Skip Wollenberg
Associated Press


NEW YORK — It‘s hip to be
clear. Or is it hype?

Marketers of well-known brands
of soft drinks, dishwashing liquids.
mouthwashes and deodorants are
scrambling to get clear spinoffs of
distinctively hued old standbys on
supermarket shelves.

Next on line: clear beer.

Miller Brewing Co. plans to in-
troduce the industry's first clear
beer, Miller Clear, in several mar-
kets later this month.

Already. there‘s Crystal Pepsi
and Tab Clear. The Palmolive and
Ivory names appear on clear dish-
washing liquids. Lavoris is market-
ing a colorless mouthwash. And
Ban has a clear solid deodorant.

Marketers say the clear products
provide real benefits or emphasize
other changes that distinguish the
clear product from the original.

Makers of clear deodorants, for
example. say they leave no white
residue like traditional sticks and
powders do.

But some marketing experts say
the onslaught of clear products
smacks of gimmickry that consu-
mers eventually will see through.

-— -— —--—- __,,.,

“People perceive clear substances
to be pure and natural and somehow
better," said Roger Blackwell, pro-
fessor of marketing at Ohio State
University. “The perception is the
beginning of reality, but it is not al-
ways the reality."

He said clarity may be novel
enough to draw some consumer in-
terest, but “only those with a dis-
tinct advantage will survive."

New Product News, a monthly
Chicago-based publication that
chronicles product introductions.
spotted about four dozen clear prod-
ucts among 16,790 new food, per-
sonal care or household products in
1992. That didn’t include another
35 sparkling waters and juices that
came out with clear variations.

Its editor, Martin J. Friedman,
said he doesn‘t know of any new
clear product other than the deodor-
ants that can claim transparency as
an attribute.

“Everyone is desperate for some-
thing innovative. But a lot of this is
just appealing to consumers’ per-
ceptions. I don’t think it will last."
he said.

Pepsi-Cola Co. began the nation-
al rollout of Crystal Pepsi late last
year, and launched its ad campaign
on the eve of President Clinton‘s in-
auguration, trying to capitalize on
the change theme.






The company said Crystal Pepsi
was developed because of a de-
mand for a cola that used natural
flavoring. no preservatives and less

Coca-Cola Co. is testing Tab
Clear, a version of one of its diet

Colgate-Palmolive Co. and Proct-
er & Gamble Co. began national
marketing of clear dishwashing liq-
uids in see-through plastic bottles
last spring. Each claims the new
versions are tougher on grease and
easier on the hands.

Procter's clear Ivory replaced the
white liquid sold for 45 years.

Dep Corp. Chairman Robert Ber-
glass said its Crystal Fresh Lavoris
uses mountain spring water and dif-
ferent flavoring, and is expanding
the market of consumers who've
been sloshing the red cinnamon-
flavored mouthwash for 70 years.

Jane Fitzgibbon, who follows
consumer trends for the advertising
agency Ogilvy & Mather. said she
suspects a fad element in “clear"
marketing. but it can be a potent
selling tool.

“We want clear air, clear water. It
means trouble-free and blemish-
free." she said. “It makes people
more comfortable in using mese

Fundarnentalists usually have

Jordanian authorities say Sala-

Salameh, 25, is the eldest son
among 1 1 children of a now-retired
Jordanian army lieutenant. Amin
Salameh. The family fled from the
West Bank village of Bediah five
months after the June 1967 Arab-

The family lives in a four-

after the young Salameh traveled to
the United States on Feb. 17, 1988,
to study and try to fulfill his dream
of earning a master‘s degree in
business administration.

US. authorities said he stayed in
the United States illegally after his
visa expired.

Salameh was arrested Thursday
on suspicion of involvement in the
Feb. 26 blast at the World Trade

and injured 1,000 others.

He was described as a follower
of radical Egyptian cleric Omar
