You have to be a certain kind of person to buy a bright yellow Porsche. More precisely, you have to be the sort of person who wants to be noticed. You could paint the new Cayman S beige and still get noticed, though - it's a beautiful concoction of aluminium and hot-formed steel with a short, sloping front end, beautiful lines and a tight rear. So why gild the lily and paint the latest ...
This little green goblin is the Bosch Indego, an automatic lawnmower. Robochop, if you will. It pootles around your garden cutting the grass, then when it's done it tootles back to its docking station (or nest, as I like to think of it) and recharges itself. If it bumps into anything on its way, it will stop, then chart another course away from the branch/barbecue/bird bath in its path. I ...
The other day, I was picking out some movies to give to my nephew, who just graduated from high school and who hinted that he’d like, as a gift from me, some great DVDs for his collection. I was having fun choosing some classics that I thought he’d like . . . a little Hitchcock here, a little Kubrick there . . . and then I thought I should include a sports movie, as he loves sports. ...

Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.
Iran's president-elect was speaking after his historic election victory.

The Argentine born Pope Francis has blasted a so called waste culture.
Since taking office in March, Pope Francis has said he wants the 1.2-billion-strong Roman Catholic Church to practise greater austerity and work toward reform in global financial markets.
Around 1.3 billion tons of food, or one third of what is produced for human consumption, gets lost or wasted every year, according to a United Nations food survey.
The majority of waste is by consumers in the industrialised world.
The pope, in his weekly audience, said: "Our grandparents used to make a point of not throwing away leftover food. Consumerism has made us accustomed to wasting food daily and we are unable to see its real value. Throwing away food is like stealing from the table of those who are poor and hungry".
Instead of throwing away food, a U.N.-backed study has suggested that simple measures such as better storage and reducing over-sized portions would sharply reduce the vast amount of food going to waste.
In US restaurants, diners waste 9% of bought meals.
