    Turkish women laugh online to protest deputy PM's remarks

    Hundreds of Turkish women posted pictures of themselves laughing on Twitter on Wednesday to protest comments by Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc, who had urged women not to laugh in public to "protect moral values". Melda Onur, a lawmaker from the main opposition party CHP, said on Twitter that Arinc's comments portrayed laughing as a dishonourable act and left women exposed to violence. Arinc criticised the media on Wednesday for taking his comments out of context and focusing on a small part of his speech, in which he said he advised both men and women to adopt "ethical behaviours".

    Guy's Wife Didn't Pose for Maternity Photos, So He Posed for 'Manternity' Photos

    Maternity photos capture a unique time in the life of any family, or family-to-be. They also, of course, usually feature pregnant women — until now. Reddit user DruishPrincess69 wanted to celebrate the new addition to his family with some portraits, but his wife wouldn't go for it. So, rather than photograph her pregnant belly, he decided to feature his beer belly. He hired a photographer, dubbing the resulting album "manternity photos." Each one parodies photos seen in conventional maternity albums. There's the use of hands to highlight his belly, as he sports classic Superman undies. Another spotlights his killer ice cream craving. In another image, he inserts himself twice to create the classic "dad kisses baby bump," except it's him kissing his own beer bundle of joy.

    World Ebola fears grow with Europe and Asia on alert

    Fears that the west African Ebola outbreak could spread to other continents grew with European and Asian countries on alert and a leading medical charity warning the epidemic was out of control. Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said the crisis gripping Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone would only get worse and warned there was no overarching strategy to handle the world's worst outbreak of the disease. US Christian charity Samaritan's Purse was temporarily withdrawing its non-essential staff from Liberia, it said, citing regional "instability and ongoing security issues". Hong Kong announced quarantine measures for suspected cases, although one woman arriving from Africa with possible symptoms tested negative, while the EU said it was ready to deal with the threat.
