    Andy Rice is a founding partner of Yellowwood Future Architects, a marketing strategy consultancy. In his other lives, he is the southern hemisphere's only supporter of Cambridge United Football Club, and was once upon a time the South African National Spoofing Champion. He has played football at Wembley and cricket at Lord's within the same weekend, but troubled the scorer on neither occasion. Things could only go up from here.

Late on Sunday Israel announced the members of a commission of inquiry into the flotilla raid that occurred late last month. The Independent Public Commission will be lead by retired Israeli Supreme Court justice, Jacob Turkel, and include two international observers in an attempt to establish credibility. The Israeli cabinet is set to give the panel its stamp of approval today.  New York Times
