Will China end 13-year ban on video game consoles?

Authorities in Beijing are considering allowing the likes of Sony and Nintendo to once again sell video game consoles in China, according to reports.
Video game consoles such as Sony's PlayStation and Microsoft's Xbox were banned more than a decade ago over worries that video game playing could corrupt children and hamper their development. But now the China Daily says at least one governmental official believes that there is a possibility for gaming to once again hit the Chinese market.
An anonymous source from the Chinese Ministry of Culture told the publication:
"We are reviewing the policy and have conducted some surveys and held discussions with other ministries on the possibility of opening up the game console market. However, since the ban was issued by seven ministries more than a decade ago, we will need approval from all parties to lift it."
In another promising sign, Chinese regulators last fall gave a thumbs-up to the PlayStation 3, saying it met safety standards for electronic devices.

Monkeys pick 49ers to win Super Bowl


GALVESTON, Texas, Jan. 30 (UPI) --

A Texas educational complex said its monkeys used iPads to predict the San Francisco 49ers will come out ahead of the Baltimore Ravens in the Super Bowl.

Moody Gardens Galveston Island said two saki monkeys were given an iPad and each tapped a different team's logo to predict the outcome of Sunday's big game, The Houston Chronicle reported Wednesday.

A third monkey, named Frankie, was given the iPad to cast the deciding vote, and he made his preference known by drawing frown faces on the Ravens' logo.

"Frankie put frown faces all over the Ravens' team [logo], so I think he's pretty determined that San Francisco is gonna win," said Jerri Hamachek, marketing and public relations manager at Moody Gardens.

Hamachek said the park's biologists use iPads as part of en enrichment program designed to increase the activities of the monkeys while in captivity.


British Nursing Home Defends Practice Of Hiring Alleged Prostitutes For Aging Residents

A British nursing home is on the defensive after local authorities learned it may have regularly hired prostitutes for its residents.
According to The Times of London, Chaseley nursing home in Eastbourne, England, is accused of regularly scheduling visits with sex workers, who meet residents in a special room and put a "special red sock" on the door for privacy. Caregivers are said to check on the rooms every fifteen minutes, the paper reported.
Chasely caters mostly to ex-soldiers.
Manager Sue Wyatt told British tabloid The Sun that a "third party consultant" handled the procurement of the sex workers, who helped residents with their "needs."
Helena Barrow, whom The Sun says is a Chaseley ex-manager, clarified further: Professionals offer a service that is both therapeutic to residents "frustrated" by "primeval needs" and helpful for the staff, she told The Sun.
“If you have a resident who is groping staff, one way of resolving that problem is to get a sex worker in who is trained to deal with that situation," Barrow said. "The fact is sex workers are allowed by law to sexually enable people but care workers are not."
The Inquisitr reports that the East Sussex County Council is nevertheless looking into the practice to make sure residents are not being harmed.

Man in jail for stealing food from fridge

VIGO, Spain, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- A man in Spain who stole food has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in jail, even though the owner of the food has not pressed charges, court officials said.
ThinkSpain said the man took a window out of its frame to get into the house in Vigo.
He stole sausages, lobsters and other food from the fridge inside the home, ThinkSpain reported.
The owner of the house could have received compensation for the food, but refused to accept it.
"I don't want anything. He stole food, he must have been hungry -- I hope he enjoyed eating it," she said in court.
ThinkSpain said the incident was the man's second infraction, and his sentence for the first episode was a suspended 3 1/2 year sentence he would only have to serve if he committed another crime.

Utility company leaves gnomes on poles

OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- A California electricity company said it will not remove thousands of wooden blocks painted with the images of gnomes from utility poles.
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. announced Monday the blocks, which were painted with gnomes by an anonymous artist and affixed to utility poles in the Oakland area during the past six months, would not be removed as previously announced due to their popularity with the public, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday.
"We received a great deal of public feedback, so we're declaring the poles gnome-man's land. We're not going to remove them," PG&E spokesman Jason King said. "We're committed to working with the artist, the city and the community to find a peaceful resolution."
The artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, sent an email to the utility company explaining his intentions.
"I'm a resident of Oakland who simply thought this would be a nice way to make my fellow Oaklanders happy and proud," the email read.
