REGIONAL LOOK
Ok, readers. Time for another of our regular looks around the region at what cousin columns of Coconut Wireless are reporting.Enjoy.

UNIVERSAL
CHOICE
From Between the Lines in the Samoa Observer, Apia:
Whatever religion you are, there wouldn’t be too many people who would argue with Time magazine’s ‘Person of the Year 2013’ – the person who has made a difference in the world this year.
Pope Francis or ‘The People’s Pope’ as he has been dubbed, is the first non-European pope in 1,200 years.
Time writers say he is poised to transform a place that measures change by the century.

CHOOSE
NU
From Smoke Signals in Cook Islands News:
Kudos to Pa Ariki. It must be at least a year since Pa began her personal crusade to get us all drinking nu [young coconut water]. The number of people selling nu at the market and the number selling nu at roadside stands has multiplied by many times. Thank you Pa.

CANCER
CARE
From Column One in The National, Port Moresby:
Families pooling funds in Papua New Guinea for cancer treatment overseas to save the lives of afflicted loved ones are now becoming a norm in a country with limited health facilities and the lack of cancer specialists. Fighting cancer is quite a journey as experienced by those who have gone through the ordeal. We hope there are plans at Waigani for more cancer facilities in the country.
