  • 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': Spanish Tourism Surge Sparks Backlash in Balearics

    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.

  • 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

  • Swiss village chooses to pay £200,000 fine instead of accepting 10 refugees as 'they won't fit in' 

    They added: "We are not suited to take in refugees, they would not fit in here." But another resident, a mother-of-two who asked not to be identified, said it was regrettable that the row has led to claims the village is  selfish and racist.  "It is only right that we do something to help others who are less fortunate," she said.  "It makes the village look like we all do not care what happens to others and only look after ourselves. That is not how it is." Andreas Glarner, the town's right-wing mayor, denies the vote was motivated by racism and said the town rejected the quota because it was not told whether the refugees were Syrians or "economic migrants from other countries." "Yes, the refugees

  • 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 Change.org 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!
