Good bees, bad wasps?

Wasps are the natural enemy of every picnicker. Forget a peaceful meal amidst nature in the last days of summer. As soon as you unpack your delicious food and well-deserved drink, wasps will close in with their swaying and aggressive flight.  Instead of taking a tiny taste and then moving along, they will feast on your food with a scavenger's sense of entitlement. Bzzz. Thanks for the picnic, buddy!                    Bees, on the other hand, are too busy pollinating flowers and producing honey to even notice your alfresco lunch. The universally disliked wasp, compared to the cute and friendly bee  —...

Is new Pakistani PM Khan backtracking on China's economic corridor?

Pakistan's army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa arrived in Beijing on a three-day official visit on Sunday, days after a Pakistani minister raised concerns about China's $57-billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project. Abdul Razak Dawood, Pakistan's minister for commerce, industry and investment in Prime Minister Imran Khan's government, last week suggested that all CPEC projects could be suspended until a review is completed. "I think we should put everything on hold for a year, so we can get our act together," Dawood told the Financial Times in an interview. "Perhaps we can stretch CPEC out over another five years...

Nigerian Pentecostal megachurches a booming business

"The siege of unemployment is over in your life, the siege of business stagnation, frustration in your life are finally over." The prosperity gospel by David Oyedepo sounds hypnotizing. A crowd of 50,000 people is taking in every word. 50,000 — that is the current capacity of the Living Faith Church just outside of Lagos, the country's third biggest Pentecostal church. Many more listen to Oyedepo outside this megachurch, those who did not get a seat inside. They raise their hands towards the sky in devotion, in hopes their prayers will be heard. Oyedepo is just one of many pastors...

Champions League: The team Klopp built show up Tuchel's side in German coach clash

Nearly 45 minutes before kickoff, with three of Anfield's stands all but empty, Jürgen Klopp beat his chest twice as he followed his team out of the tunnel for the warmup. Hidden, as it was, behind various Champions League-branded props, this wasn't a gesture for show but a man geeing himself up before a big performance. It worked. Both Klopp and his team were effervescent early on. The players snapped into every tackle, moved the ball rapidly and dominated their French visitors. And their boss was in similar form. The famous fist pump got an early outing, as James Milner...

Are Bert and Ernie a gay couple? 'Sesame Street' creators disagree

It has been speculated for years that Bert and Ernie — the famous male puppets from the children's TV program Sesame Street — might be more than just roommates. Mark Saltzman, a staff writer on the program between 1981 and 1990, revived the debate through an interview with web magazine Queerty published on Sunday, in which he said that he had based the pair's dynamic on his own long-term relationship with the late film editor Arnold Glassman. "I remember one time that a column from The San Francisco Chronicle, a preschooler in the city turned to mom and asked, 'are...

Champions League: Freak Pulisic strike gives Dortmund flattering win in Brugge

Club Brugge 0-1 Borussia Dortmund(Pulisic 85') In the end, Dortmund picked up three points against the lowest ranked team in their group — but it was a win they barely deserved and one only secured by a freak goal from Christian Pulisic on his 20th birthday. Lucien Favre had named a team that, at least on paper, had looked strong enough to ease to victory against a Club Brugge side who went into this game without a win their last ten Champions League games. Dortmund proved willing opponents to help Brugge end that run though, with Roman Bürki by far...
