This is from AFP:-
A Bulgarian police spokeswoman was sacked on Thursday after calling a man who took and circulated a photo of three policemen sleeping in their car a "peasant fool," authorities said.
The image of the three men in uniform snoozing in their patrol car in the eastern city of Varna appeared in Bulgarian media and went viral on the Internet in recent days, even though it was taken on July 2.
Asked to comment earlier this week, Varna police spokeswoman Kalinka Pencheva lashed out at the picture's author Boyan Boozov in a television interview.
Prime Minister Boyko Borisov personally ordered her dismissal for the "inadmissible" comments, calling them "damaging to the interior ministry's reputation."
No disciplinary measures have so far been taken against the sleeping officers.

Only ugly women are left for Singaporeans
A young Singapore man has appealed publicly to Minister in Prime Minister Office Grace Fu during a townhall meeting recently to stop foreign men from ‘stealing’ Singaporean women from local men.
During the Q&A session, he complained that Singapore men are losing out in the race to the altar because local women are increasingly favoring foreign men.
His complaint drew a round of laughter from the audience, but he silenced them with a glaring look:
“I think we shouldn’t laugh. It is an important problem and we need to solve it,” he thundered.
He added that foreign men tend to enjoy higher pay and better perks which give them an unfair advantage in the competition for Singaporean women’s heart.
Unfortunately, there is nothing the government can do about this, he was told.
“The government cannot regulate love,” Ms Fu said.

IBM Japan’s CEO has been unveiled as a sex criminal after he was caught putting his iPod up the skirt of an unsuspecting female victim, although IBM insists his abrupt resignation was due to “personal reasons”.
According to police, 63-year-old Takuma Otoshi, IBM Japan’s recently retired CEO, used an iPod to take upskirt videos of a woman riding an escalator at Yotsuya Station in Tokyo one morning.
Incriminating videos were also recovered from his iPod; he explained his crime to police by saying “I was interested in peeping.”
Otoshi joined IBM Japan in 1971 and worked his way up the ranks, being promoted to CEO in 1999, a position which he held until his recent resignation, which supposedly has nothing to do with his arrest despite having occurred in the same month.
He also sits on the boards of a variety of universities and NPOs, and still holds the probable sinecure of “Supreme Advisor” at IBM. However, his profile page on IBM’s website has mysteriously disappeared.
IBM for its part is desperate to avoid commenting on the matter, having provided various reporters a litany of excuses: “he resigned due to personal circumstances,” “we don’t know the details,” “we are looking into the matter” and “as he has already resigned we wish to refrain from commenting on the matter.” - Sankaku Complex

During the thefts, Juan Manuel Sanchez Gordillo, mayor of the southern town of Marinaleda, was reportedly seen outside the shop shouting encouragement. Trolleys laden with staple items like pasta and oil were stolen by labor unionists intending to pass on the goods to struggling families in the area.

Thai security forces so far have bought 1,576 of the fake devices at a cost of US$30 million, investigators said, which the army currently uses against Islamist guerrillas despite a U.S. Embassy alert that the devices are "like a toy."
Asia Sentinel and other publications reported on Feb, 17, 2010, that the devices were fake. Then-Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said at the time that the devices had worked only four times in 20 field tests, a frequency even below random chance. Critics said the use of the devices could subject the users to the possibility of being blown if the operator fails to detect a nearby explosive that is detonated.
The Department of Special Investigation --Thailand's equivalent to the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation -- announced two weeks ago that the manufacturers and distributors of the useless devices fraudulently sold them to Thailand's security forces and other agencies. The DSI then sent the case to the National Anti-Corruption Commission, which set up 13 panels on July 24 to investigate the purchases

A 29-year-old was fined $1,200 after being found guilty of two counts of fare evasion, reported The Straits Times.
Unemployed Tanya Azzure Lee had skipped paying taxi drivers their fare for at least 34 times, reported the newspaper.
The traffic court was told how she hopped into a taxi at Whampoa on April 15 last year, travelled to her destination in Woodlands Avenue 7, and then told the driver that she could not pay the fare of $17.80.
She then told the driver that she would go up to her relative's home and get the money to settle the fare. The taxi driver rejected the idea and told her that he would drive her to a police station instead.
She handed over her identity card and took down the driver's mobile phone number, promising to settle the fare the following day.
However, she failed to do so and the driver made a police report on April 18.
On Sep 7, she made another trip from Whampoa to Woodlands at 12.30 am, and attempted the same ruse on the taxi driver. This time round she handed over her mobile number, identity card number and name. The taxi driver also took a photograph of the woman.
Once again she failed to settle a taxi fare of $25.20.
She was fined $600 on each of the two counts but had been allowed to settle the other 32 fares - SOURCE

My husband is gay, and we've been married 25 years. It took a lot of pain and adjustment to be where we are now. His family knew this open secret - everyone except me, initially. I just knew I fell in love with this handsome, soft-spoken, well-dressed, rich single guy, and I thought I died and went to heaven. I was a probinsiyana with a very ambitious mother, and my parents-in-law couldn't have found a better match for their son than me.
We made all the noises befitting a young, newly married, good-looking couple in love. We had a big church wedding, a trip abroad for the honeymoon, and a baby within the first year. Our three children came in a row, which made my in-laws delirious. They all thought I had changed him. In three years, we've done our part as a married couple. My husband, that poor guy who had to fulfill a role, told me the truth and gave me the chance to escape to freedom. Or, as he suggested, keep up the pretense until one of us got sick of it. His honesty and kindness won me over, and we're still here.
We live in a beautiful house, attend parties as a couple and travel abroad with our kids - together. It's a given that he'd be going on "alone," attending to his other businesses later on. What is not known is we live separate lives. He has a little place he goes to for his dalliances. He tried hard not to be absent too much from home when the kids were growing up.
For my part, I've had my own flings, but few and far between - just enough to fill my own needs and not cause a scandal. I knew of the rumors circulating in our circle, but nothing flared up because we lived a simple and unpretentious life. Our children grew up in this kind of atmosphere, so we never had a problem.
The secret to our relationship could be that we never tried to change the other for anything. My husband is what he is, and I love him. Many will condemn our arrangement, but what of it? This is the life I've chosen.

Love marriages, unescorted visits to the market and even the use of mobile phones — women up to the age of 40 in Uttar Pradesh’s Bagpat area in India can have none of these. The decision, which seems inspired by a Taliban-style diktat, has been taken by the village elders, ostensibly to safeguard women from “teasing.”
The elders issued a “farman” (diktat) barring women up to the age of 40 from going to the market and using mobile phones in the village and outside their home after complaints of “teasing” and “harassment” were reported from the area.
Sources said the “farman” was issued at the meeting of the panchayat of Asara village in Bagpat district on Tuesday after it was apprised of growing incidents of teasing in the village market. Asara is a Muslim-dominated village and several members of the minority community were present at the meeting.

The newly established Indonesian anti-pornography task force says it will crack down on women wearing skirts that fall above the knee as such clothing will be included in the group’s universal definition of pornography.
Religious Affairs Minister Suryadharma Ali, the task force’s chairman, said Wednesday that the definition would be universally applied to all regions in the country, regardless of cultural background.
“We have yet to set a standard definition of pornography on which we will base our work. However, there must be a set of universal criteria to define something as pornographic, one of which will be when a woman wears a skirt above the knee,” Suryadharma told reporters on the sidelines of a meeting with the House of Representatives’ Commission VIII overseeing religious and social affairs on Wednesday.
A 24-year-old unmarried man in India complained of intense "exploding" headaches while watching pornography, researchers said.
The case study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, said the unnamed male software professional said the headaches were so painful after two years he sought the help of a doctor.
Researchers from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University in New Delhi said the man said the headaches would develop gradually over 5 minutes of viewing videos and would peak within 8 to 10 minutes. "The intensity was so severe that the man had to abort watching. There was no accompanying nausea or vomiting. Progressively, he started to refrain from viewing videos as a means of avoiding headaches."
The man had no history of head injury or meningoencephalitis in early childhood. He did not have a history suggestive of migraine, tension type or exertional headache, the researchers said.
Magnetic resonance imaging, angiography of brain and electroencephalogram tests were normal, the researchers added.
"The man was advised to take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent combination -- 400 milligrams of ibuprofen and 500 mg of paracetamol, commonly used for the relief of headaches and other minor aches -- half an hour before watching pornography. The man reported significant pain relief."

The Jakarta city administration has moved with exceptional speed to cut down an old mahogany tree said to harbor two distinct forms of Indonesian ghosts.
The extraordinary turn of events has led the religious affairs minister to call on people not to be influenced by “mystical” stories and the National Police chief to appeal for calm.
The saga began when a pocong (shrouded corpse ghost) and kuntilanak (vampiric female ghost) revealed themselves to a child who reportedly made the mistake of relieving himself against the old tree in Roxy, Central Jakarta, on Nov. 26.
In the hysteria that has followed since, hundreds of people have begun visiting the tree with at least ten becoming possessed by spirits.
Photographs and video purporting to be of both the pocong and kuntilanak are now circulating on the Internet.
Ferry Abdillah Kadir, a local official, told Detik.com that the sightings had drawn large crowds that had caused major traffic congestion.
He said he had sent a letter of request to the Jakarta Park and Cemetery Agency to remove the tree.
Though the agency acted quickly and cut down the tree on Thursday, the spectacle is not over — speculation is mounting that the ghosts have simply moved to one of three neighboring mahogany trees, Detik.com reported.
Police in Jakarta said a businessman pointed a gun at a restaurant waiter after a scuffle when the businesman refused to pay his bill.
He was arrested after the worker lodged a report. He could be jailed for five years if proven guilty.

A number of Saudi nationals suffering from physical and mental problems have fallen victim to an unknown man whom lives in Egypt and claims he can cure them by sending over a ‘Muslim jinn’ [genie] to address their health issues.
The Egyptian’s agent in Saudi Arabia arranges a phone call, understandably, to identify the exact nature of their medical emergency, and too, establish which jinn to dispatch in order to properly address the problem.
“People who spoke to the man in that country were asked to transfer a specific sum of money to his account so he can send them a Muslim jinn,” the Saudi Arabic language daily Sabq said in a published report.
Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police, discovered the scam when they arrested the man’s aide in the city of Onaiza.
Hardworking, dilligent and intelligent Singaporeans failed to detect school texbook error for seven years
An error in a history textbook used by secondary schools in Singapore has gone undetected for seven years, until now.
In an explanation of governance in ancient China, the textbook erroneously refers to "feudal lords" during the Shang and Western Zhou dynasties as the "shi" - a glaring inaccuracy, say history academics and experts.
The "shi", they point out, are the nobles and intellectuals who may hold positions in government and sometimes own land, but they ultimately yield to the feudal class, reported Lianhe Wanbao.
The textbook with the conspicuous mistake is "The Living Past - History of Ancient India, China and Southeast Asia", which is approved by the Ministry of Education (MOE).
Now in its second edition, the first version was approved by MOE for use back in 2006 - eadvantage

A bridegroom in India’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh learnt a lesson in punctuality for the rest of his life after he ended up late for his own wedding, only to see that his bride had been married to someone else.
The groom, who is known by the name of Jameel, was to marry his bride at 10.30 am on April 19. Yet he arrived at the venue at six in the evening, keeping his bride’s family waiting for a good eight hours late.
Afterwards, and instead of finding his loving bride awaiting him, which would have been the case had he been on time, Jameel and his wedding party got trashed by his bride’s family with fists and blows until the police intervened to stop the scuffle.
Being late for his own wedding proved costly for a bridegroom as he and his relatives were beaten up by irked family members of the bride who was married off to another person.
After the police pacified the situation, the bride’s family married their daughter to another man, leaving Jameel not only beaten and bruised, but also heartbroken.
It should be mentioned that It is not uncommon in India for a bride and groom not to have seen each other until the day of the wedding, with the pair being arranged by the respective families. However, while the traditions are changing, in parts of rural India it continues to remain unchanged.

Indonesia's National Police have washed their hands of the controversial arrest on Tuesday of 10 employees of a newspaper in Sumedang, West Java, saying any punishment against the district police chief must come from the provincial police.
Brig. Gen. Muhammad Taufik, a National Police spokesman, acknowledged on Wednesday that the order by Sumedang Police Chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Eka Bakti Satria to arrest the Sumedang Ekspres staff was “not the right move,” but added that the West Java Police would be handling the fallout.
“It was not the right move because it wasn’t in line with an agreement signed in February between the National Police chief and the Press Council [on legal protection for journalists],” he said. “But whether there are any sanctions, disciplinary action or ethics reviews [against Eka], I don’t know. We’ve left the case up to the West Java Police as the party with the authority to decide on any punishment.”
The controversy centers on the arrest of the newspaper employees during a parade to mark the 343rd anniversary of the founding of Sumedang on Tuesday.
The Ekspres, which took part in the parade, had decked out its car with poster-sized copies of some of its previous headlines, one of which read “Oknum Polisi Ngamuk” (“Rogue Police Officer Goes Berserk”). The story was from the paper’s April 4 edition, covering a story on police violence.
The car followed the parade route through the main town square, passing in front of a podium where Eka was seated alongside other top district officials.
Eka then ordered his men to stop the car and arrest the crew.

Some 33,000 police and military officers have been deployed nationwide, with some saying they would stop at nothing to maintain order, but thousands took to the country’s streets on Tuesday anyway to protest the proposed fuel price hike.
But it was music rather than menace that proved the more effective tactic for dispersing demonstrators in East Java.
The Madiun district Regional Representatives Council (DPRD) put on a live dangdut and reog ponogoro (traditional Javanese lion dance) show ahead of the massive demonstration being staged there by the opposition Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P).
Just minutes after the protest’s organizer took the microphone to begin his rally speech, a majority of the protesters began turning their attention instead to the live show.
“Even though some of the protesters are busy dancing and enjoying the entertainment provided, deep down we are all still rejecting the central government’s plan to raise the [subsidized] fuel prices in April,” said Subari, the protest’s coordinator and secretary of the local PDI-P branch.
The protest lasted two hours, with most of the demonstrators disbanding by noon - Jakarta Globe
Spooked by the sound of his own phone ringing, a police officer in Bali fired several shots inside a bank in Denpasar on Tuesday.
Chief Brig. I.G. Agung of the Bali Police’s Mobile Brigade (Brimob) was on guard at the community savings and loan office and was seated with his automatic rifle pointing up when his cellphone rang.
In surprise he fired off at least seven rounds, prompting bank customers to panic. No one was injured.
