CARACAS, Venezuela - President Hugo Chavez, the fiery populist who declared a socialist revolution in Venezuela, crusaded against U.S. influence and championed a leftist revival across Latin America, died Tuesday at age 58 after a nearly two-year bout with cancer.

Paradise in trouble

CARTAGENA DE INDIAS, Colombia -- It was our first evening in Cartagena, and the assault was almost immediate as we walked onto the beach to watch the sun sink into the Caribbean. "Hi, my name is William. I'll get you whatever you need: a chair, umbrella, a snack, a welcoming cocktail," said the first vendor to reach us.

We nearly had to break into a gallop to get away.

Venezuela's coordinator for year 2000 computer problems says his country is "in an emergency." The United States, Britain, Canada and some other countries have devoted billions of dollars preparing for 2000, when computers with dates in their programs could go haywire. But an Associated Press survey of businesses, government agencies and information technology researchers in 16 countries suggests many nations are only now waking up to the problem.

Latin America battles with Y2K

BOGOTA, Colombia -- Uncertain their radars' Year 2000 computer problems will be solved, air traffic controllers in this Andean nation are taking refresher courses in guiding planes the old-fashioned way -- with radioed position reports and paper charts. Federal bookkeepers, meanwhile, may have to switch to paper ledgers until their computers are fixed.
