From the land down under.. more than 200 women took part in a stiletto race in Sydney to raise money and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The women ran 80 meters on a track in their high heels. Later, a relay race was held with the winning team pocketing about $9,000 in prize money. They also broke the world record for the fastest relay race in stiletto heels, covering 80 yards in 1 minute and 4 seconds.

Taiwan's largest exporter of ornamental fish has created a new glow-in-the-dark fish. Breeders successfully inserted a fluorescent protein gene into the reproductive organs of the fish, which allows them to produce glowing offspring. The company says its new breed of Cichlid fish took more than 3 years to breed and is the biggest and brightest aquarium glowing fish in the world.

Police in India have deployed monkeys to ward off.. other monkeys. About a dozen large Langur monkeys will be assigned to different venues at the Commonwealth Games, to keep other monkeys from bothering fans. Usually gangs of smaller monkeys run wild and steal food from people on the streets. But the smaller monkeys are afraid of Langurs, so Indian police have put them on the payroll.
