KUALA LUMPUR: Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa today made a surprise visit to three schools here to look at matters concerning welfare and infrastructure at the school. He had visited Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil (SJKT) Jalan Fletcher, SMK Puteri Titiwangsa and Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina (SJKC) Chong Hwa, Jalan Pahang to get feedback from the teachers and students at the school. Summarising his visit, Dr Ali said he was satisfied with the condition of the schools which were properly managed as well as the dedication shown by the teachers. "They are quite well maintained, it is just that there are long-term requirements such as at the SJKT Fletcher which needed a school hall although the land is rather limited. "One of the original buildings of the schools was made from wood and had termite problems. Improvements will be carried out immediately to overcome the problem," he told Bernama after visiting SJKC Chong Hwa, here today.

Kara takes Mon-El (Chris Wood) with her to the last place Izzy was seen and the duo find themselves thrust through a portal to another planet, Slaver’s Moon, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves. The leader of the trafficking ring is none other than Roulette (guest star Dichen Lachman). To make matters worse, Slaver’s Moon has a red sun, which means Kara and Mon-El are stripped of their powers and stuck on the planet with no way home. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Alex (Chyler Leigh) blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) and too complacent in watching out for her sister. Kevin Smith directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Eric Carrasco Jess Kardos. More news as we hear it.

31. Williams was elected sheriff in November and his term started Jan. 1. While serving as a police officer in Spencer, Williams was placed on leave and he resigned in December after evidence went missing. The complaint said more than $1,000 in evidence was involved. He originally was charged with grand larceny. Williams agreed to resign as part of a plea agreement with the prosecutor's office in neighboring Wood County, which handled the court case. Downey said he's relieved more than anything by the conviction because of the toll it was taking on a small central West Virginia community. It's been real stressful on the whole courthouse, Lambert said. It's been stressful on his family, I'm sure. Downey said Williams also agreed to give up his law enforcement credentials.

If it was true the "Gold Rooms" as they are called, wouldn't be popular. But they are! A lot of the appeal of many of the bars and restaurants in New York are their classic interiors. So the real issue isn't "should a new project be modern or antique?", the real question is how to create a "craft heavy" interior on a reasonable budget. Incidentally the UN was having a big meeting at the time and the hotel was host to several high level delegations. For the first time going to a wedding I had to pass through security, and there were secret service and swat team members all over the place looking me over. __________________________________________________ This Tools Craft" section is provided courtesy of Joel Moskowitz, founder of Tools for Working Wood , the Brooklyn-based catalog retailer of everything from hand tools to Festool; check out their online shop here .

Despite not being the range-topping model, the First Edition gets 20in wheels, aluminium paddle shifters and contrastingly coloured brake callipers. The styling is more toned down than the Quadrifoglio's, of course, with two large exhausts in place of the hot car’s four, less aggressive air intakes and more aerodynamically subdued bodywork. Inside, there’s an 8.8in infotainment system with sat-nav and DAB, and a 7in TFT display set into the instrument panel. Leather upholstery and real wood trim replace the Alcantara and black finish of the performance model. Standard equipment includes Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and lane departure warning, a reversing camera and all-round parking sensors, as well as an electrically powered tailgate and automatic lights. It's likely that the regular Stelvio will be revealed in the metal at the Geneva motor show in March.

The Trois Vallees' 370 miles of pistes offer something for everyone and, for the really adventurous, the off-piste terrain provides even more. Courchevel's restaurants are not far behind the gastronomic delights of Lyon; some of the boutiques rival Paris; and the hotels are among the best in the Alps. The informal chic of Le Portetta in Courchevel Moriond would be familiar to fans of its sister hotel Lime Wood in the New Forest. For those who want to live out a Bond fantasy, the five-star La Sivoliere in Courchevel 1850 is all monochrome decor and clean lines, including staff with slicked hair and black polo necks. For non-skiers, there is more than expensive shopping on offer. The stunning Aquamotion centre, opened in December 2015, offers pools, water slides, saunas and steam rooms, a complete spa and, for the more adventurous, wakeboarding and surfing lessons on the indoor wave machine.

1. Wood-burning stoves are around 60% more efficient than open fires. With a wood burner, around 80% of the heat generated is radiated and convected into the room, compared to only around 20% with open fires, as most of the heat escapes up the chimney. If you'd like a wood burner, look for one that suits your home aesthetically, but also consider size and heat output (measured in kilowatts or kW). A smaller square-shaped or cassette-style wood burner can be inserted into an existing fireplace or...
