Drones and self-driving cars will soon be joined by unmanned cargo ships, as a shipbuilder in southern China plans to construct the world’s first autonomous seafaring freighter in 2019.

Oceanalpha, a company headquartered in Zhuhai, a port city in Guangdong province bordering Macau, signed a contract on Wednesday with the local government, Wuhan University of Technology, and the national organization for shipbuilding standards to codevelop a cargo ship directed by artificial intelligence.

The “ghost ship” is named Somersault Cloud (cân đẩu vân) after the magical cloud that transports the Monkey King (Hầu Vương - Tôn Ngộ Không, Sun Wukong) in the classic Chinese saga “Journey to the West.” (tây du ký)

A full battery charge will be able to power the ship for 500 nautical miles (926 kilometers)...

To qualify, the annual income of the spouse from the high caste had to be less than 500,000 rupees (‎£5,800).

The government envisaged about 500 such marriages annually, but less than 100 have taken place each year.

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment announced it would scrap the income ceiling, and said all couples in which one spouse is from the Dalit caste would receive the cash incentive...

Prostitutes in Bulawayo joined thousands of residents who took to the streets on Wednesday night celebrating the resignation of President Robert Mugabe after 37 years in office by outrageously slashing prices of their sexual services.

“We are excited that President Mugabe has finally resigned and as part of our celebrations to his departure we have decided to join the rest of the country by slashing our prices to $2 from $5 for a short-time and $10 from $20 for a night."

A visit to some of the downtown lodges also revealed long queues of men waiting to have sex with a limited number of prostitutes.

Meanwhile, concerns and fears were also raised that in the euphoria some threw caution to the wind by allegedly not using condoms...
