  • 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.

  • '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.

  • 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.

  • 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
