Daily News… INDIA’S BILLIONAIRE CLUB SLOW TO SHARE RICHES They may build skyscraper mansions, travel by private jet and throw sumptuous wedding parties, but it seems India’s super-rich are much slower at opening their wallets for charity. India now has 55 dollar billionaires, the fifth-biggest number in the world, according to a Forbes ranking this month. But like other emerging economies such as China, its charitable giving still lags markedly behind that in the West where the tradition of wealthy businessmen donating chunks of their fortunes is much more deeply ingrained. High net worth Indians gave up an average 3.1 percent of their income to charitable causes in 2011 -- up from 2010 but far behind the 9.1 percent average in the United States, according to global consultancy Bain & Company. But analysts say the upturn in giving as more Indians get seriously rich is going at a snail’s pace. «The pace for corporate India and especially the new rich giving up its wealth is excruciatingly slow,» said Manjeet Kripalani, executive director at Gateway House, a Mumbai-based think tank. «Corporate philanthropy needs to look at a thoughtful way of scaling up giving,» she told AFP. While impressive growth in the past decade has created a swathe of Indian tycoons, the more recent economic slowdown has compounded the slow take-up of philanthropy, despite a pressing need to tackle widespread poverty. «Giving is impacted by sentiment, which remains weak at the moment. It is likely to be flat or extremely moderate in terms of growth,» said Arpan Sheth, author of Bain’s annual Indian study. The latest report released this month did not give fresh statistics, but said donors were «putting a higher bar on understanding the impact of their giving, before they commit to causes» in the tough business environment.

International News… UK MUSEUM FEARS NAPALM DEATH Britain’s prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum said Wednesday it had been forced to cancel a concert by «grind metal» band Napalm Death because of fears that the music will quite literally bring the house down. The British band had been scheduled to play a daring concert at the museum on Friday through a ceramic sculpture which -- if all had gone to plan -- would have exploded under the force of their music. But the museum has now concluded that not only would the ceramic sculpture explode, but chunks of the rest of the 150-year-old building might come down with it.

LONDON SHOW ICON DAVID BOWIE Outrageous costumes and hand-scrawled lyrics are among hundreds of items going on show in a major London retrospective tracing David Bowie’s relentless self-reinventions over five decades. Charting the British singer’s rise to fame and his reincarnations as Ziggy Stardust and other outlandish alter egos, the «David Bowie Is» exhibition has become the fastest-selling show in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s history ahead of its launch. «David Bowie is a true icon, more relevant to popular culture now than ever,» said the V&A’s director Martin Roth.

COLLECTION The Natural Reserve Letter


Humpback whales season The humpback whale season is in full swing in St Barth with several observations per day in this early period of March. They come from the south and are observed mainly in the areas of Toiny – Grand fond - Cul de sac. Often with their calves, they come close to the coast to breastfeed and rest, and return slowly to the northern waters with its reserve of fish, for the summer. These marine mammals are sensitive to disturbance, especially with their calves, so beware if you are lucky enough to approach them. Maintain a

distance of 150 meters, slow down and stay still, get out of the way and limit yourself to 15 minutes for observation! They often see observations as harassment and danger, it disturbs the phases of the feeding of calves. St Barth is part of the AGOA sanctuary that protects marine mammals. Participate! If you see whales, call 0690317073 and give us their number and their direction. Thanks to the data collected in all the islands we can estimate the total population and determine their migration routes. Thank you!

Facilities in Grand Cul de Sac The technical Service of St Barths, in collaboration with the Nature Reserve, have put a pontoon and a slide structures in the lagoon of Grand Cul de Sac. Users will be able to embark and unload their equipment with more comfort and take their boats out of the water more easily and in a more environmentally friendly way. A nice pontoon, well done !

Coussins, plaids, couvre-lits, serviettes de toilette… Aux couleurs de l’été !

Aries : You can’t hit the ball every time at bat. There is always someone keeping score and adding up the averages.

Leo : Start the week by attending to your personal affairs with the same level of skill you would provide to an employer.

Sagittarius : Recent overindulgences may make you feel guilty. Make sensible changes and deny yourself a treat.

Taurus : Respect and trust are the two easiest things to lose and the hardest things to get back.

Virgo : People will be more reasonable and willing to look optimistically at any plan on the table if everyone benefits.

Capricorn : Your financial acumen gets high marks. Be sure that whatever you endorse holds benefits for everyone.

Gemini : In the upcoming week, treat others with the same respect and consideration you would like in return.

Libra : Don’t be surprised if someone critiques your presentation or demands that you try just a little harder.

Aquarius : A positive outlook and faith in your fellow man could be rewarded with good fortune this week.

Cancer : Being generous attracts prosperity. Sound business practices of the past may reward you in the present.

Scorpio : Don’t be stingy about giving to charities, giving of yourself or giving someone the benefit of the doubt.

Pisces : Everything will become clear and you will be able to act from moral certainty rather than trusting to dumb luck.
