The most interesting news is most often hidden in the thickets of the big stories. Here are a few gems we found.
1) CNN-IBN: First Pakistan’s coach Bob Woolmer was found dead after the team’s loss to Ireland. Now Ireland cricket’s former chief Robert Kerr has been found dead, apparently after a heart attack.
2) Praja Vani: Officially, poverty in India is down from 26 per cent to 21 per cent. But in Karnataka’s richest district Bellary, where many mine owners own helicopters, 70 per cent of the population is below poverty line.
3) Mother Jones: McDonald’s has asked Oxford English Dictionary to change its definition of “McJob” because “it is out of date, out of touch with reality and most importantly it is insulting to those talented, committed, hard-working people who serve the public every day.”
4) Praja Vani: Not just the Brothers Ambani, even Ratan Tata. The Tata chief yesterday had a darshan of Lord Venkateshwara at Tirupati.
