    Q. I saw Coldplay last night in Sunrise, Florida. It was a most incredible show, and I have seen most of the greats in my time. My question: they used a lot of multimedia there, including ball-like objects suspended from the ceiling upon which video was displayed. Are these devices something that Coldplay brings around with them, or do they belong to the arena?

    The Oracle replies:

    Everything you see from the lights, the screens, the balls... in fact any visual, is all transported from show to show for the band by their crew. They have to set it up and take it down in each new venue, a time consuming task.

    Q. Dear Oracle, I hope you can help me with this. I always wear glasses, but they tend to get bent and uneven when I have sports in school. I can't see much without them, so I can't just take them off. It is almost inevitably that they get uneven (especially as I am a fool with a ball) and going to the optician is not the greatest pleasure, and some day they might get completely broken. Should I get contact lenses? At least for sports, do you think? My eye doctor and I thinks it's a good idea. My mother does not. Thank you.

    The Oracle replies:

    I would think my safest option rather than incur the wrath of your Mum is to suggest that you tackle this from a safety point of view. If you're playing a lot of sports the chances of your glasses being broken are higher and therefore you may run the risk of a minor injury. That said you run a greater risk of injury if you don't wear them. I wonder if a spare pair may be an idea for now, if you can find a reasonably priced pair set aside for sporting activity that is. I know they're your eyes but being of school age, Mum will probably make the decision in the immediate future.

    Q. Hey great oracle! I had to ask you this question. To which of these elements each member of the band corresponds: ,a) water, b) fire, c) air, d) earth

    The Oracle replies:

    Rather than pitch each element against a band member's temperament, I'll just do it how the Zodiac dictates: a) Water - Chris, b) Fire - Guy & Will and d) Earth - Jonny.
