Better world Legalise drugs

Recreational drug use is as old as humanity, and has not been stopped by the most draconian laws.

Given that drugs are here to stay, how do we limit the harm they do? The evidence suggests most of the problems stem not from drugs themselves, but from the fact that they are illegal. The obvious answer, then, is to make them legal.

A Look Back at Ferraris Roots INFOGRAPHIC

Ferraris replacement for the F430 is the 458 Italia.

The new car is the latest in a long line of mid-engined, two-seat, road-going Ferraris that can all trace their heritage back to the 1967 Dino-badged 206 GT. Over those 40-plus years, the price has increased more than twentyfold and horsepower has nearly tripled.

Japans Obsession with Perfection Thwarting Sustainability

I've never seen anything but perfect fruit for sale -- each neatly packaged one-by-one.

So what happens to the produce that is misshapen or slightly bruised or marred by rubbing against the stem? Some of it goes into processed foods and juice. The rest is dumped -- and dumped all along the delivery chain.

Hooping has come a long way since children spun light plastic hoops in the playground.

Today it's more than just a fitness phenomenon. A little bit hippy-dippy, a little bit circus-punk. ''Hooping makes you feel more positive and calmer, with a great sense of being grounded and connected to your body,''
