And since the country is no stranger to going way over-the-top on just about anything, North Korea announced it is banning all foreign tourists...

Swiss company Migros apologizes for Hitler coffee creamer packets.

slate.com — "You cannot put Pol Pot or a terrorist on a milk creamer." That truism comes courtesy of a spokesman for the Swiss retail giant, Migros, via the New York Times.

U.N. Ebola Trust Fund has raised only $100K to fight Ebola.

slate.com — Now that we're all agreed that Ebola is everyone's problem, we're all totally going to do better fighting it, right? Right.

Italy’s economy is out of recession thanks to drugs and prostitution.

slate.com — Italy's economy is so back. Sort of. It's been a rocky economic road for the country of late. How rocky? Italy has gone through two recessions since 2008 and the country's GDP, adjusted for inflation, has posted zero growth since 2000. So no news hasn't exactly been good news for...
