Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

New film starring DiCaprio rattles diamond industry - Yahoo! News - TEL AVIV (Reuters) - "The Blood Diamond," a film in production starring

Leonardo DiCaprio, could hurt diamond sales and the livelihoods of people in
Africa, industry leaders warned on Tuesday.

The Warner Brothers film being shot in Africa shows how "conflict diamonds"
financed bloody civil wars. DiCaprio portrays a mercenary jailed for
smuggling in Sierra Leone, where a civil war lasting until 2002 killed
50,000 people.
Industry officials attending the opening of the World Diamond Congress said
the situation with conflict diamonds had dramatically improved in recent
years and expressed concern that the movie would not reflect this.

"The problem of conflict diamonds is practically over," Shmuel Schnitzer,
outgoing president of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB), told
Reuters at the conference in Tel Aviv, among the world's top diamond cutting
and trading centers.
