An argument being used in certain corners of the econosphere at the moment is that high bond prices (or low yields, they're the same statement) show that there's no problem with debt. For, if people were worried about the amount of government debt that there is then government bonds prices would be lower and yields would be higher. Thus, as no one is worried, because yields are low, ...
Dogs are well-known for being able to sniff out deadly explosives but they could have a rival in the future - honeybees. Researchers say the insects have a perfect sense of smell that can detect the odour and they may be used to help find unexploded landmines in Croatia.

Fire ants are an invasive species in the warmer areas of the US, and we here at Weird Science are told by people who have experienced the invasion personally that their fearsome reputation is well deserved.

A top Pakistani politician has been shot and killed in Karachi.
Police say Zahra Shahid Hussain was shot twice in the head Saturday during an attempted street robbery outside her home. She died on the way to the hospital.
A spokesman for Hussain's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party, or PTI, calls her killing an act of terrorism.
Hussain was a senior vice president of PTI, which is led by Pakistani cricket star Imran Khan. PTI finished third in last week's parliamentary election.
Hussain was killed a day before voters in one Karachi district planned to recast their ballots. PTI accused the rival Muttahida Quami Movement party, or MQM, of vote-rigging. MQM chief Altaf Hussain has condemned the killing.
