East-West Church & Ministry Report
Vol. 3, No. 2, Spring 1995, Covering the Former Soviet Union and East Central Europe

Practically Speaking

UNIAPAC, the International Christian Union of Business Executives, which was founded in 1931 as the Union of Catholic Entrepreneurs, now includes Christians of other confessions.  It is a worldwide ecumenical movement of business executives who take inspiration from Christian social thinking and ethical principles.  UNIAPAC would also like to establish affiliates in Orthodox countries.  (The Deputy General Secretary is a Belgian Catholic with a Greek Orthodox wife.)  Its branches in East Central Europe are listed below.  

Confidentiality of Mailed Documents May Be Compromised

New chemicals sold by law enforcement supply houses under such names as Liquid Window and Lucid make paper temporarily transparent. Information thieves use these fluids to read through sealed paper envelopes without altering the ink, appearance, or contents.

The fluid causes the contents in envelopes to become legible enough to read, photocopy, or photograph.  When the fluid evaporates, the envelope returns to normal, leaving no sign of tampering, says Jeriel Garland, U.S. Office of Senate Security.

Confidentiality may be ensured by placing sensitive documents in opaque plastic envelopes (such as Tyvek), or between sheets of aluminum foil, metallic Mylar, or heavily patterned cover sheets that obscure the writing on the pages underneath.  Envelopes with bubble wrap or fiberfill padding are also deterrents.
