    “Why does Kerala have such a peculiar dog bite menace?” the Supreme Court wondered on Thursday, as a committee appointed by it warned that the “excessive” stray canine population will continue to pose “very serious threat” to public safety unless brought down to “manageable level”. “I have been to several states. In Orissa the dog bite incidents are rare. In Assam it is rare. Why is this dog bite problem so concentrated in Kerala? Why does Kerala have such a peculiar dog bite menace. We need to know,” Justice Dipak Misra said. The bench, also comprising Justice Amitava Roy, observed...

    Bike thieves be wary. A pair of San Francisco entrepreneurs are developing a way to stop you—and you'll probably think it really stinks. Daniel Idzkowski and Yves Perrenoud created a steel U-lock called the SkunkLock that emits a noxious, vomit-inducing odor into the face of the person attempting to cut it. The acids in the pressurized formula are food-grade, sharing the same properties as those found in fowl-smelling Swedish fermented herring. Inhalation won't cause permanent harm but it does lead 99 percent of people to throw up uncontrollably. As your angle grinder just starts to break through the lock's steel,...
