Having trouble controlling how big the portions are in your evening meal? You can get portion control dinnerware. This divides your plate up into three portions; you then put a certain amount of each food item in each section of the plate, and voila! instant self-control. And if you're an eco-friendly person, these plates come in fully compostable versions, so you can dump 'em straight in the compost at the end of your picnic. If there's a compost available. The plates apparently provide 'portion control with a conscience.' Right.
And talking of control, in Saudi Arabia, a Lebanese man was sentenced to 300 lashes with a whip and six years in
prison for his role in helping a Saudi woman convert to Christianity and
flee the kingdom in the latest example of the religious intolerance
that grips the region.
