Before you opened your curtains this morning, Kenyan students had been kidnapped from their campus, and California water use became a no-no after a no-snow show.
Croatia earned from "Game of Thrones" while Florida students will soon be able to earn from sperm.
California curbed water use
The dessicated state is in really big doo-doo after scientists discovered that there is absolutely no snow on the Sierra Nevada. Its melted snow usually provides a third of the state's water.
Islamic militants killed Kenyan students
At least 14 people were killed and Christian students taken hostage by militants in a Kenya university near the border with Somalia. Somalia's al Qaida-linked Al-Shabab group claimed the predawn raid.
King's Landing paid Croatia's bills
"Game of Thrones" is giving the Balkan country a much-needed boost, as tourists flock to the city of Dubrovnik to see the home of the Lannisters.
A sperm bank sought quality students
One of the world's most successful sperm banks is moving its HQ right next door to the University of Central Florida so that it can mine its population of healthy, well-educated students. Students might well be tempted by a monthly income of $750 for twice-weekly "donations."
