- Pentagon chief talks drones with Pakistan PM
Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif told Pentagon chief Chuck Hagel on Monday that US drone strikes were "counter-productive" as Washington pushed for supply routes to Afghanistan to be kept open. In the first visit by a US defence secretary for nearly four years, Hagel flew from Kabul to Pakistan to meet the premier and the country's new army chief, General Raheel Sharif. Ties have been seriously strained over US drone strikes in Pakistan's tribal belt as well as over sanctuaries for Afghan Taliban insurgents inside Pakistan's borders. Sharif "reaffirmed Pakistan's support for the Afghan peace and reconciliation process", a Pakistan government statement said after the talks.

- The 'Last Packet of Sriracha Ever Made' Can Be Yours for $10K
This week he put up for sale what he calls, "the last packet of Sriracha ever made." His asking price: $10,000. Except, according to the picture he posted, that isn't the coveted Huy Fong Sriracha sauce. The company claims, however, to have finished that process, according to the Associated Press, so the injunction against Huy Fong may not have an immediate effect on the rest of its production—specifically its mixing and bottling—which occurs year-round. The public fervor surrounding Huy Fong's Sriracha is almost as much about the company's backstory as it is about the taste of its celebrated condiment.
