I don't know anything about Love Park, but I just found this:

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/h...-redesign.html

You may be thinking of Dilworth Plaza - now called Dilworth Park - which is very close to Love Park and was just redone last year:

It's not that Italian sea is small. It's Cavour ship that's larger than the Slovenian territorial sea

At least we didn't shot any Slovenian fisherman.

There have been several episodes of Italian army vehicles stopped at the Sammarinese border and forced to turn back by an angry "gendarmeria" officer.

Tenants of a rented apartment may stand up while peeing in their own bathroom and not worry about the consequences, a German court said Thursday.
The district court in the western city of Duesseldorf ruled in favour of a man suing the owner of his flat for the full refund of his 3,000-euro deposit, the court said in a ruling.
The landlord had told the tenant he would withhold 1,900 euros because the marble floor of the washroom was permanently stained by splashed urine.

Judge Stefan Hank agreed with an expert's report that it was in fact uric acid that had eaten through the floor but said that standing to urinate was widespread.
He said the flat's owner should have made his tenant aware that the marble was highly vulnerable.
"Despite the increasing domestication of men in this area, urinating while standing up is indeed still common practice," Hank said in the ruling.

"Someone who still practises this previously dominant custom is regularly confronted with significant disputes, particularly with female cohabitants. However normally he must not reckon with damage to the marble floor of a bathroom or guest toilet."

Tenants' rights are a frequent subject of litigation in Germany.
Last June, the same Duesseldorf court ruled that an elderly smoker must vacate his home of around 40 years after neighbours complained about his cigarette smoke.
It said that the pensioner had not tried to prevent smoke from seeping into the communal hallway of the apartment building and had failed to adequately air his flat and empty his ash trays, it said.

In Serbia (at least in my area), urinating while sitting down is seen as "gay".

Regularly cleaning the bathroom would have sufficed.

Criminal inventiveness never ceases to amaze me

In Calabria a pregnant woman (7 months) simulated a car accident to get insurance money. When she arrived at the hospital an accoplishing doctor provoked the death of the baby to simulate it was dead in the accident. They agreed to split insurance money between the woman and the doctor.
It was discovered that they were part of a larger organization who committed several frauds against insurance companies. 7 people had been arrested and 144 reported to the police.
OK, frauds against insurances have always been around, they're a crime like many others but nothing extraordinary. But... killing your own baby for a bunch of money with a doctor accomplishing on that? In what insane world do we live? Lock them in prison and throw away the keys, please!

Rather lazy or workaholic. Or you like to extend your sleep.
