FAIR TRADE: Foreign soccer stars are jazzing up the game in Britain, but they also might be contributing to the trade deficit. As the Office of National Statistics revamps its method of calculating Britain's trade balance, the number-crunchers couldn't help but notice the huge transfer fees that English clubs have paid for foreign players. As the accountants see it, a big transfer fee paid to a club from the Netherlands or Italy is effectively taking a bite out of Britain's national balance sheet. The impact, however, won't be much, government economists said.

SITE OF THE WEEK

WHAT A GUY!: If you're too busy to catch the national touring exhibition ``Linus Pauling and the Twentieth Century,'' examining one of the great visionary-freak-geniuses of the 20th century, check it out online at www.paulingexhibit.org. The only person to have ever been awarded two Nobel prizes (chemistry in 1954; peace in 1962), Pauling was a true renaissance man. The Web site includes documents, photos, diaries and scientific models that chronicle his life, death and impact on history.
