US researchers are investigating ways to extract the gold and precious metals from human feces. The group identified gold in waste from American sewage treatment plants at levels which if found in rock could be worth mining. Details were outlined at the 249th national meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in Denver.

Italy, Israel and Spain have all passed bills banning the use of ultra-thin models, with France expected to follow suit. The French National Assembly is considering a health reform bill that includes measures to ban designers and labels from using models deemed "too thin" by healthcare standards.

A woman who spent her life caring for stray dogs received an unexpected -- and surprising -- tribute from the animals when she died. At the funeral for Margarita Suárez in Cuernavaca Mexico a pack of stray dogs came inside the funeral home to stand guard. The dogs sat quietly around the casket all day and through the night. All but one left in the morning, but the gang returned and stood by through the cremation. Curiously, none of the dogs had anything to do with Mrs. Suarez previously , as she was buried 850 miles from her home.
