An article and accompanying timelines about scientific patents held by Genentech Inc. in yesterday's editions reported incorrect dates. The original patent was granted in 1989 and is to expire in 2006. The second patent was granted in 2001 and is set to expire in 2018 - 12 years after the expiration date of the first patent.

In an item in yesterday's Business Digest, the Associated Press erroneously reported that the new Black & Decker Corp. cordless DeWalt power tool line will have a five-minute battery recharge time. That capability will not be included in the new line of tools, said Christine Potter, group product manager for DeWalt.

An article in Thursday's editions about the Prince of Wales' recent visit to the SEED School of Washington, D.C., misquoted the wording on a sign held up by students. The sign did not misstate the title of the duchess. It read: "Welcome to SEED, Prince of Wales & Duchess of Cornwall."

The Sun regrets the errors.
