Drink! Drink! Drink!

Experts in the UK released new drinking guidelines in the United Kingdom. Before this week, British experts suggested men limit themselves to three to four units of alcohol per day.

The new guidelines suggest people do not drink more than five days a week. Is five days a week much better than seven? And what is a "unit" of alcohol, anyway?

Firefighter saves Mojo

A woman in the US was able to escape her burning home without being injured, but her Chihuahua, Mojo, wasn't so lucky.

Officials arrested fourteen female prostitutes in South China, and then they discovered they were actually men.

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is set for a singing performance in a Chinese advertisement. We'll get you that embarrassing video as soon as possible.

Women dressed up like princesses for Shanghai's first debutante ball - a tradition to introduce high-class women to high-class society. I thought dreaming to become a princess stopped at age nine.
