 River levels water height Scotland   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Fish do not normally take well on a rising river, they may take well during the first few inches of a rising water whilst it is still clear but usually as soon as the water starts to colour they will stop biting and will remain difficult until the river level stablises.
Scottish river levels at the under noted locations of particular interest to anglers are obtained from SEPA, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency and these show show the change in river level over the last two to three days.
An increase in river level is normally associated with rainfall in the catchments, however certain sites are subject to artificial control by, for instance, hydro power stations that may artificially influence the level of the river (see the Glass at Kerrow Wood).

The river Annan was holding at about 8 inches for the first half of this week and the 5 anglers out at Newbie have had 26 sea trout to 3lb in the first 3 nights.

Annan withdrew international staff members from Iraq in October 2003 in the wake of attacks on relief workers and the bombing of the United Nations' Baghdad headquarters, which killed 22 people, including the mission chief, Sergio Vieira de Mello.
Annan's image in American eyes are the allegations of corruption and a cover-up in the scandal-ridden oil-for-food program and the intense anger on Capitol Hill at the refusal of the independent investigation headed by Paul A. Volcker, the former Federal Reserve chairman, to share documents with the various Congressional committees conducting their own inquiries.
Annan's office say they fear a return to the mood of the 1980's when the United States, the organization's single biggest donor, reacted to Congressional displeasure with the United Nations by withholding payments.

 New York Daily News - Ideas & Opinions - Editorials: Kofi Annan shows his stripes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
It defies reason and humanity to believe Israel determined to launch a lethal attack against the world body, but that was Annan's impulse, one obviously rooted in the animus that informs virtually all he says and does regarding Israel.
Yet Annan is appalled, putting him in the same camp as the top Hezbollah man who admitted he never expected such Israeli fury.
Annan's accusations against Israel are all the more odious because he is the chief of an organization that failed to implement Security Council Resolution 1559, which passed three years ago demanding the disbanding and disarmament of all militias in Lebanon and the control of the Lebanese government over all territory.

Its basin thence is a valley from 3 to 18 miles wide, which, at no distant geological period, must have lain under the sea, and now with a rich alluvial soil presents a soft and pastoral appearance.
