Alan Warnes returned to Sri Lanka during March to see how the SLAF is faring.

THE BLOODY CONFLICT in Sri Lanka continues (see Sri Lanka’s Unique Air Force, July 96, p47-55). It does not make the national papers regularly because the government restricts the passage of journalists, but it still rages on. Battles between the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam (LTTE) — whose leader Vellupilli Prabhakaran is also wanted in India for the alleged LTTE slaying of Premier Rajiv Gandhi in 1989 — and government troops are seemingly a daily occurrence.

HOT IDEAS

FOR HEATING YOUR HOME

INSULATE YOUR FLOORS

10 — 20% of heat loss in a room is due to uninsulated floors, with greater loss occurring in larger areas. Carpets are natural insulators due to their low heat conductivity and help reduce energy costs for healing and cooling when there is a temperature differential between the indoor air and that under the floor. Research conducted in New Zealand found that the energy savings, both heating and cooling, were in the range of 8 — 12%. Findings indicated that carpeted floors fell warmer underfoot and did not require the healing that a
