Turkmenistan insanity continues
CNN | Submitted by: f00f
After naming a month after the President's mother, the New Era in Turkmenistan continues with further proclamations: "Our ancestors had a clearer and more reasoned division of the ages of man... childhood lasted to 13, adolescence to 25, youth to 37, maturity to 49. Later there followed: the age of the prophet, from 49 to 62; the age of inspiration, from 62 to 73; the age of the white-bearded elder, from 73 to 85; old age, from 85 to 97; and the age of Oguz Khan (an ancient ruler of the Turkic ancestors of the Turkmen) -- from 97 to 109."

Belleville News-Democrat | Submitted by: Gutter Juice

Thousands get instant eviction in Beijing
Baltimore Sun | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"Song Guirong was fast asleep in her home when a thunderclap of splintering wood and falling chunks of concrete the size of dinner plates jolted her out of an afternoon nap. Tumbling out of bed onto the bare floor, she assumed she had just survived an earthquake. When the dust settled, the real cause of the commotion became clear: A front-end loader dispatched by the municipality of Beijing had ripped off part of the roof of her house like a lid peeled from a tin can. It didn't matter that Song and her family had lived there more than 30 years. The city wanted them gone."

Domestic surveillance
Economist | Submitted by: Soylent
"Hillary Clinton is supposed to have said of her husband that he was a 'hard dog to keep on the porch'. She is not alone. All over the world, dogs, husbands, children and even inanimate objects are liable to stray from the home, whether willingly or otherwise. Now, though, the technology exists to keep track of them."
