In the early 1980s, the North American comb jellyfish quit its Atlantic home, hid away in the belly of a cargo ship and headed for the Black Sea. By just over a decade later, its descendants had decimated the anchovy population in their new surroundings - a jellyfish heaven with unlimited food in the eggs and young of other fish... and not a natural predator in sight.

Aakif Suri combines different ideas, influences and objects into new forms and shapes that serve as symbols for him for a particular event or time. This way he produces a harmonize composition that is a perfect blend of many different things including feelings, concepts and experiences.
Standing silently between two lines of traffic crossing the River Thames, Queen Victoria cuts an imperious figure. Who knew that she was thinking how much she hated breastfeeding? At least that is the thought imagined by an artistic group which has been making London's statues "talk", with a project that it hopes to extend to Chicago and Paris. Passers-by can scan a barcode below the plinth or visit a webpage that prompts a phone call from the person or animal depicted, and a short message recorded on their behalf.
Next year's handbag collections in top European stores will have a distinctly summer feel, with floral patterns and butterflies reflecting a nostalgic look, trend scouts predict.

A hill in south-eastern Bolivia is criss-crossed by fossilized dinosaur tracks - a total of more than 5,000 footprints, some more than a meter long, dating back 65 million years.

When popular Chinese handset maker Xiaomi Inc admitted that its devices were sending users' personal information back to a server in China, it prompted howls of protest and an investigation by Taiwan's government. The affair has also drawn attention to just how little we know about what happens between our smartphone and the outside world. In short: it might be in your pocket, but you don't call the shots.
