Saturday

1.  Fifty Shades of Chicken, by El Fowler:

“It evoked something I’d never been able to express. Then one day as I was tying up the ankles of a chicken for roasting, I realized why some of the scenes in the book were so strikingly familiar. It turns out I’ve been practicing BDSM for years – but with poultry,” Fowler wrote to People in an email.

2.  Wide-reaching proposals from International Telecommunication Union (ITU) member states could slow economic progress, raise costs for users who can least afford them, and limit Internet access in developing countries.

The proposals, by Africa and the European Telecommunications Network Operators Association (ETNO), suggest implementing a “sending party network pays” rule, which would force content providers to pay local telecoms operators for the delivery of user-requested data, pushing the cost of access up for those who can least afford it.
