Complete the grid with zeros and ones until there are just as many zeros and ones in every row and every column. 2. No more than two of the same number can be next to or under each other. 3. Rows or columns with exactly the same content are not allowed. TREDOKU ® BINARY BRAIN SNACK In this cipher, the letters have been substituted with numbers. See if you can decipher the quote! A few tips: single letter words are probably A or I, the most common letter is usually E, and short words are likely to be THE, AND and THAT. Also look out for two-letter words, apostrophes and double letters. 15-06-11-01 06-16 19-12-01 11-07-24-24-09 19-12-06-24-08 19-12-26-19 12-26-22-22-01-24-16 19-18 09-18-07 18-24 19-12-01 21-26-09 19-18 19-12-01 08-10-26-20-01. 13-07-01-24-19-06-24 05-10-06-16-22 HINT:15=L BIYWORD Build-It-Yourself using the clues and each of the twenty-four letters once only to form ten words: ve across and ve down A key word (bold clue) builds on the letter set in the grid.

ALL NEW NUMBER GAMES AND LOGIC PUZZLES ALL NEW NUMBER GAMES AND LOGIC PUZZLES Print scoop television cannot ignore A LEADING newspaper and na- tional broadcaster have collaborated on an important journalism investi- gation to ensure revelations of cor- ruption at a central bank reached the widest audience possible. An investigation over the past 12 months by The Age reporters, Nick McKenzine and Richard Baker, has uncovered bribery payments con- nected to the winning of contracts for printing polymer banknotes by the Reserve Bank of Australia's cur- rency unit, Securency. But rather than confine the story to print -- it received splash treat- ment in The Age and sister-paper the Sydney Morning Herald -- Mr McKenzie agreed to be seconded by the Australian Broadcasting Corp to create a special episode for its Four Corners current affairs program. The collaboration is similar to a new trend emerging in the United States, where newspaper journalists are working with TV colleagues on in-depth, quality-journalism projects. In media circles, the ABC and The Age's publisher, Fairfax Me- dia, have always been seen to be closely aligned, both culturally and through a seemingly constant interchange of staff. For example, the current manag- ing director of the ABC, Mark Scott, was previously editor-in-chief of the Sydney Morning Herald. The ABC approached The Age with the idea, having read stories about the alleged corruption written by Mr McKenzie and Mr Baker. Senior deputy editor at The Age, Mark Baker, told The Bulletin: "This was an interesting proposition. "Obviously they needed our per- mission, so they approached us and sort our permission for Nick to be seconded," Mr Baker said. The joint venture gave The Age's investigative work a national audi- ence, exposure which editor Paul Ramage, Mr Baker and Mr McKen- zie all agreed the story deserved. The Age is predominantly sold in Melbourne and surrounding areas of Victoria only. Mr McKenzie said: "We felt that it was an important story and didn't feel that it was getting the national attention that it deserved. "We didn't want The Age to lose the story, but we thought using Four Corners could increase the journal- ism's impact. "The synergy between the long- format television show and print exposed the story to a national audi- ence." Despite suggestions by some com- mentators, the project had nothing to do with cost-cutting, according to Mr Baker. "We broke the story and followed it extensively and thoroughly over a period of 12 months," he continued. "The simple point was that Four Corners recognised it as a good story and saw that it could be developed in different ways as a television documentary. "It didn't really make a difference to us in terms of developing the story because we had made all the really big breaks. "We weren't going cap in hand to the ABC -- certainly not." The decision by the two media companies' executives to allow collaboration on a story which has major national significance reflected well on both organisations, Mr Mc- Kenzie said. "The collaboration promoted the story, but it also promoted The Age itself," he added. Investigations...

Print, TV closer CROSS-platform deals between Fairfax Media and Network Ten, a commercial television station, will result in Fairfax masthead-websites posting Channel Ten news bulletins. A similar deal between MTV and publisher Metro International in the US has been designed so Metro shares its youth orientated news content with the cable TV channel. Property publisher SINGAPORE Press Holdings unveiled its first residential luxury apartment block Sky@ eleven this month. The 273 apartments were all sold within 30 hours of being on the market. SPH already owns a retail and office complex, Paragon, but this is the first time it has ventured into the residential property market. Working WSJ wonders THE Wall Street Journal readership has jumped 20 per cent since the paper was bought by the Murdoch empire in 2007, a study conducted by The Media Audit suggests. The same report said readership of the New York Times had remained flat during the same three-year period. Japan model JAPANESE national newspaper daily, the Asahi Shimbun, has launched a new web site called "Astand" (http://astand.asahi. com), where customers can buy individual articles from the three major publishing houses in Japan. A standard per-article price will sit at 105 yen (A$1.37). 10 | The PANPA Bulletin | JULY 2010 ebecca Leaver NPA
