* BANKRUPTCIES [KM] *** 00:17:12 08:19:00 1exTOR/1exWPG/When Eaton's
sought protection under bankruptcy laws a week and a half ago, it
raised all kinds of questions about how the bankruptcy system works.
Two people are with me to help us with that. Frank Bennett is a
bankruptcy lawyer; he's here in Toronto. Brock Cordes is a lecturer at
the University of Manitoba; he also runs his own business, called
- Eatons applied for CCAA (Companies Creditors Arrangement Act)
because it allows courts to give them protection from their creditors,
stops those creditors from grabbing Eatons' assets...Eatons will
probably pull through, some some of their suppliers may go
bankrupt...who gets paid first: employees, federal government - for
taxes, secured creditors - fixed assets - such as buildings,
furniture, cars, finally - unsecured creditors, which means suppliers
and shareholders...the board of directors can be held responsible if a
company goes belly up - that's why the board of governors resigned for
Canadian airlines...banks often lend companies less money than they
need to get out from underneath - because that makes it harder for the

Michigan Military is, what the band calls, hip-hock bluegrass...our
American audience likes to hear the songs that have Canadian
references - just like we're interested in Midnight Oil (singing about
Austrailia), U2 (Ireland) or REM (Atlanta)...internet has increased
our regcognition factor - we'll play a date in a U.S. city and people
will show up and we'll wonder: how did you know we were playing? and
the answer is the net...met Pete Seeger - learned how he wrote "we

* ZAIRE [HS] 00:11:39 09:06:30 1exWASH/For months, a civil war has been
underway in eastern Zaire. The result of the war so far: thousands of
refugees, and a very uncertain future for Zaire's President Mobutu.
Iain Guest is senior fellow with the U.S. Institute of Peace. He's in
our Washington studio.
- no independent sources of information - since relief workers flew
out from Kinshasa last week...yes, there are serbian, russian and
ukranian mercenaries...Mobutu has done little for the welfare of his
people, that's one of the reasons why there has been so many
problems...rebel leader Laurent Kabila is stopping freedom of movement
for reporters and UN officials - in fact he won't allow aid to more
than 250,000...in central africa: 14 countries are suffering from
major food shortages - this may be the most destablizing time in
Africa's history...question is how do we intervene? not militarily -
in a search for war criminals, instead, we must wait until crisis is
over to get aid to the population...

* BAGEL SLICING [SJ] 00:04:30 09:22:00 PHONER/There's a trick to slicing
a bagel so that you don't slice yourself. Danny Zand knows a thing or
two about bagels. He's president of the Great Canadian Bagel's Western
division. They sell tens of thousands of bagels every week in
Saskatchewan and Manitoba. He's on the phone from his home in Regina.
- Don't cut bagels vertically - put bagel on table, cut horizontally,
holding the bagel down with your hand until you're 2/3 of the way
through, then stand them up...cut bagels before you freeze them...
