Flora has never mated with a male, or even shared a living space with a male. She's lonely, folks, and so she's using the miracle of parthenogenesis to produce a clutch of baby dragons which will all be male, in hope of eventually getting some.

The Opposition: Moderate and Reformist candidates opposing the incumbents' stance and support of said administration

The Result: The moderate opposition take majority control in local and national elections. Election referred to as a "blow" to the administration and the voters are said to have "said a big 'no' to" the current president.

Any idea? It's not the country you're probably thinkin'...

Two dolphins housed at the aquarium had become ill from eating plastic off the edge of their pool, and attempts to use medical instruments to remove the plastic had failed.

A federal judge ruled today that the government's warrantless wiretapping program is unconstitutional and ordered an immediate halt to it.
