WELLINGTON, New Zealand (RNZI, Oct. 7) - The Fiji Labor Party says the death of
Savenaca Siwatibau, the vice-chancellor of the University of the South Pacific, is a great loss to
Fiji and to the region.

Mr Siwatibau, who was at one time the secretary of finance and then the first governor of the
Reserve Bank of Fiji, died in his early sixties from cancer.

Lekh Ram Vyashnoi says Mr Siwatibau was an economist who was widely respected.

"Mr Siwatibau has been regarded as one of Fiji's ablest sons. We know he was fighting for his life
for some time but his death at this critical stage in Fiji's history comes as a great loss. The Fiji
Labor Party had always held him in the highest regard because of his level headedness, his ability
to remain cool in times of crisis and his deep commitment to the nation and the South Pacific
region as well."

Fijiís prime minister, Laisenia Qarase, says itís a tremendous loss for Fiji and the Pacific because
Mr Siwatibau was intelligent and talented with so much to offer.

Bula! Greetings everyone, I am a Peace Corps nominee going to Fiji in June and I would like to ask for any and all advice related to the following topic: 1. Is there any chance I will have access to electricity? 2. I am planning to download all of my cd's into an MP3 player. I have a solar panel which will recharge batterys but most MP3 players do not have the ability to be connect to the solar panel due to the inability for USB/AC connection. Does anyone know of any MP3 player which will have this capacity? or do you have any other suggestions? Please advice.
