STORYLINE:

U.S. President George W. Bush has upset both the Chinese and Taiwanese by referring to both as countries and then to Taiwan as a republic.

The mistake was made during a speech on trade to the the U-S State department on Thursday in which he mentioned the entry of Taiwan and China into the World Trade Organisation.

Taiwan separated from mainland China in 1949 when the communists took power but the People's Republic of China regards self-ruled Taiwan as a part of its own territory.

U-S Republican presidential candidate George W.Bush says he regrets that a private comment he made to his running mate got on the public airways.

Bush made a disparaging remark in Illinois about a reporter from The New York Times on Monday at a campaign rally.

He was standing in front of a microphone with his running mate, Dick Cheney, but he didn't think the microphone was switched on.

The Texas governor has said in the past that what the country needs is more straight talk in Washington.

Bush was at a campaign rally in Naperville, Illinois standing on the podium in front of a microphone, waiting for the music to finish.

He turned to his running mate Dick Cheney and pointed out reporter Adam Clymer, who was in the nearby press area, calling him an "asshole".

Cheney nodded in agreement with Bush's assessment.

Both men were unaware the microphone was switched on when he'd leaned over to Cheney at the Labor Day rally.

Bush was apparently upset with Clymer for a series of unflattering articles he wrote on Bush's tenure as governor.

A spokesperson for the Texas governor says the remark was only a side comment whispered to his running mate and was not meant to be a public comment.

So far, Clymer, himself who is following the Bush-Cheney campaign, has made no comment.

And until now, Cheney has refused to discuss it.

Asked about the comment Bush said he regretted that everybody heard what he said.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"I regret that the private comment I made to the vice presidential candidate made it to the public airways. I regret that it made it to the public airways. I was making a comment to Vice-president Cheney. I did not obviously realize that mics were going to pick it up, I regret that everybody heard what I said. I regret that people heard the comment. Thank you very much. I'll see you in the morning."

SUPERCAPTION: George W. Bush, Republican Presidential Candidate

Meanwhile, Bush and his Democratic opponent, Al Gore, are squabbling over their upcoming debate schedule.

Bush said that Gore apparently did not mean what he said when he promised to debate Bush "any time, any where."

Bush has offered to debate on two television talk programs and one sponsored by a bipartisan commission.

Gore says he will only accept the offer after Bush agrees to three debates sponsored by the bipartisan commission which would be carried on all major networks in prime time.

3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Diane Moon, Communications Manager:

"We haven't heard from Downing Street yet. I am hoping that Tony Blair is finding it a little bit amusing - a bit of Christmas spirit. Again in the news stories this year it's all been about Tony Blair following George Bush, particularly into war with Iraq, so that's why we've cast him as the back end of the cow."

4. Various of waxworks of Bush and Blair

STORYLINE

The waxwork museum Madame Tussaud's in London has turned US President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair into a pantomime cow for their Christmas display.

Dressed up as a cow from "Jack and the Beanstalk" in a new scene featuring characters from pantomime favourites at the popular London tourist venue - Bush and Blair form a remarkable double act.

Although the US President, being the leader of the world's only super power, gets to play the front end.

The pantomime cow also alludes to Bush's Texan roots.

Communications Manager Diane Moon said on Monday that she hasn't yet heard anything from Downing Street (the British Prime Minister's official residence) about the display, but hoped Blair will take it in the Christmas spirit.

It's not known whether Bush is aware of his latest incarnation.

The scene is on display until January 8.

"OK... (laughter) Touche.

STORYLINE:

US President George W. Bush, who often teases members of the White House press corps, apologised on Wednesday after he poked fun at a reporter for wearing sunglasses without realising they were needed for vision loss.

The exchange occurred at a news conference in the Rose Garden.

Bush called on Los Angeles Times reporter Peter Wallsten and asked if he was going to ask his question with his "shades" on.

"For the viewers, there's no sun," Bush said to the television cameras.

But even though the sun was behind the clouds, Wallsten still needs the sunglasses because he has Stargardt's disease, a form of macular degeneration that causes progressive vision loss.

The condition causes Wallsten to be sensitive to glare and even on a cloudy day, can cause pain and increase the loss of sight.

Wallsten said Bush called his mobile phone later in the day to apologise and tell him that he didn't know he had the disease.

Wallsten said he interrupted and told the president that no apology was necessary and that he didn't feel offended since he hadn't told anyone at the White House about his condition.

"He said, 'I needle you guys out of affection'," Wallsten said. "I said, 'I understand that, but I don't want you to treat me any differently because of this'."

Wallsten said Bush said he would not treat him differently, so Wallsten encouraged him to "needle away."

"He said, 'I will. Next time I'll just use a different needle'," Wallsten said.

Wallsten said he thought that was a pretty good line.

And his only complaint is that the president didn't answer his question at the news conference.

Wallsten, who is also author of a book coming out next month titled "One Party Country: The Republican Plan for Dominance in the 21st Century," had asked about White House credibility now in the aftermath of top aide Karl Rove having been cleared in the CIA leak investigation.

But Bush said he wouldn't comment with another top White House aide still facing prosecution in the case.

STORYLINE

Customers at a restaurant in southern China are expressing their opinions about the upcoming US presidential election by choosing duck dishes named after the candidates.

The restaurant in the city of Foshan in Guangdong province has put up a banner promoting the new dishes - urging customers to "vote by mouth".

On the menu is "Bush duck" - a spicy concoction to match his "war-mongering personality" - and "Kerry duck", a bonier version with sauce in line with his "keen-witted and capable nature".

So far, "Kerry duck" is ahead with 55 percent, while "Bush duck" trails with

45 percent.

The 36-year-old restaurant owner, Nie Jing-Gong, says he wants to benefit from the US presidential election, which is a popular topic in the area.

He has found his customers very interested in the dishes with the creative names.

The unofficial vote, which began on October 23, will continue until the November 2 elections in the US.

All the customers who voted for the winning candidate will receive a small prize.

STORYLINE

US President George W Bush was treated to a performance of a Brazilian samba by children at a community centre in Sao Paulo on Friday.

Tired of standing along a wall, Bush chucked his coat, grabbed a Brazilian rattle known as a ganza, and shook it along to the music.

Soon First Lady Laura Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice joined in.

The president's wife begged off for a bit until a young man joined her in a kind of slow-dance pose for the upbeat music.

Halfway through the second number of the production, drummers waved their sticks above their heads and pounded brightly coloured drums.

"Oh yeah," President Bush hollered after the finale.

Bush was in Brazil as part of a tour of Latin American countries, aimed at challenging the notion that the United States has neglected Latin American nations.

STORYLINE

US President George W Bush let loose to African tribal music on Wednesday during the first ever Malaria Awareness Day at the White House.

Bush danced alongside tribal music performers on stage on the south lawn of the White House, and tried playing one of the performer's drums.

Bush has made combating malaria one of his global health priorities.

"With the support of our malaria initiative, local residents launched a campaign called 'Kata Malaria,' which is Swahili for 'Reject Malaria,'" Bush said.

"Workers went door to door to teach people how to use bed nets," he added.

The event at the White House came as Africa marked its annual anti-malaria day on Wednesday with new hope that political will, a cash boost and better treatment and prevention methods may finally overcome one of the continent's biggest killers.

Poverty, faltering health systems and drug resistance have contributed to the rise of malaria infections over the last 30 years to between 350 (m) million and 500 (m) million cases a year.

In some sub-Saharan countries malaria accounts for up to half of hospital admissions.

Bush also praised the work being done by World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz in curtailing the spread of malaria world wide.

"Thank you for your leadership of the World Bank," Bush said.

Wolfowitz has come under international scrutiny over allegations that he showed favouritism in arranging a promotion and pay package for his girlfriend.
