  • Did you know China is re-establishing its ties with Laos?
  • The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has published a comprehensive review of India's nuclear arsenal.
  • Baghdad's Mutanabi book market has reopened after a 2007 car bombing.
  • An interactive map that lets you track oil exports to America over time.
  • I've heard of Chinese factories¬†mass-producing replicas of famous art works, but this is ridiculous:¬†a Chinese artist is recreating famous paintings...using vegetables.
  • And speaking of food, the Japanese Farm Ministry has released a surprisingly popular online video about the changing Japanese diet and its implications for food security.
