  • Watch a man released from prison after 44 years react to today's technology

    Otis Johnson was released from prison in 2014 after being locked away for 44 years. In an interview and video for Al Jazeera, Johnson visited Times Square in New York City, where he was surprised and confused by the modern technology surrounding him: People "with wires in their ears" listening to music who looked like CIA agents, pedestrians "talking to themselves" on their iPhones, and neon video billboards illuminating storefront windows. Johnson offers a fascinating perspective on our world today and the modern technology that many shrug off and take for granted.

  • 'Tourists go home': Is the party over for Ibiza?

    Although still a minority protest, it points to tensions in Palma de Mallorca and elsewhere in Spain over rising numbers of visitors who are propelling the economy but also disrupting the lives of locals and straining services from transport to water. With tourism accounting for 12 percent of economic output and 16 percent of jobs, Spain can ill afford a backlash. The population of the famous party island almost doubled during peak season last year.

  • Internet pranksters get 'spectacular revenge' on 'man who wore vile Hillsborough shirt'

    A man who was hurled out of a pub for wearing a vile t-shirt mocking the Hillsborough tragedy victims is apparently being bombarded with 'gifts' by pranksters. The pubgoer sparked outrage on social media after he was pictured donning the shirt, which suggested the 1989 disaster was 'God's way' of helping a pest control company. Now, furious Twitter users are sending a man - believed to be the reveller - a horde of eccentric items, including a 70-strong crate of Lilt, a clown, 10 diggers and a giant CRANE. There are also 25 cement mixers, a package of poo and £600 worth of Viagra - while one prankster has even ordered him a male prostitute, according to social media posts.

  • Bank of England in a sticky situation with new £5 banknote

    The Bank of England (BoE) has got itself into a bit of a sticky situation when it comes to the imminent introduction of a new five pound note. The fiver, to be unveiled this week and introduced into circulation later this year featuring the face of Sir Winston Churchill, will be the  first made of polymer rather than plastic. It's emerged, however, that the notes may stick together before they become more used. Despite this slight issue, the BoE has been trumpeting the benefits of polymer over paper for some time. This includes them being cleaner, more secure and more durable than paper notes. The plastic notes are much harder for criminals to counterfeit while they are better for the environment

  • Holiday cottage ‘visitor’ was fake

    Last autumn an inquiry was made to book our cottage in North Wales. I offered a reduced rate of £1,000 for the whole four weeks plus a refundable deposit. The enquirer sent a cheque for €3,333. I thought perhaps it was so much more than asked for because he was prepaying his electricity usage which would be high in the winter. He also sent a photo of his pregnant wife and himself. We paid the cheque into the local HSBC branch and it was credited immediately. I was away for a week. When I returned there was an email from France saying he could not make the holiday now as his wife’s father had been diagnosed with cancer. Would I refund the money less 10pc for the inconvenience caused. Stephanie q

  • Premium Bonds confusion

    I decided to cash in Premium Bonds of various denominations I have purchased since the Fifties without the success hoped for. Imagine my surprise when, in its reply, NS&I informed me that, since 1990, I have been the holder of a duplicate bond not registered in my name to the value of £300. Also that one bond was not owned by me at all. JC, South Staffordshire Confusion arose following a letter from NS&I stating, “The repayment amount has been reduced because [the] bond… was duplicate and a bond is not registered in your name.” Now I understand that on the repayment form you had listed a block of bonds valued at £300 twice and one block not registered in your name worth £10.

  • Gorilla killed to save child sparks outrage (11 photos)

    The killing of a gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo after a 4-year-old boy tumbled into the ape’s enclosure triggered outrage and questions about safety, but zoo officials called the decision to use lethal force a tough but necessary choice. More than 2,000 people signed a petition on that sharply criticized the Cincinnati Police Department and the zoo for putting down the animal and called for the child’s parents to be “held accountable for their actions of not supervising their child.” Cincinnati police on Sunday said the parents had not been charged, but that charges could eventually be sought by the Hamilton County prosecuting attorney. A spokeswoman for the prosecutor did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reuters) See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Tumblr!
