Autonomous automobiles aren't taking over American highways yet, but automation is becoming a bigger part of the driving experience. A mobile phone app called Shell allows drivers to pay for a fill-up of gasoline from their in-car touchscreens. No debit or credit cards are involved, so the process will work for drivers who forgot their wallets. The downside? The app will take care of the payment, but somebody — in most states, the driver — still has to get out and manually insert the fuel pump nozzle into the car's gas tank. Here's how it works, assuming the user already has downloaded the Shell app and connected the mobile phone to the car's network. The car's touchscreen will guide the user to the nearest service station (a Shell station, of course, considering the app's name). After pulling up to the gas pump, the user enters a PIN code and the gas pump's number.

The U.N. agency urgently needs $825 million to carry out humanitarian operations until June, he said. On a related issue, the United Nations released $18.5 million from its global emergency fund in response to a new catastrophic drought in Ethiopia. Jens Laerke of the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs told VOA this response was "triggered by the very rapidly deteriorating situation we have in Ethiopia, and in particular in the Somali region, where the pastoralists were extremely vulnerable to climatic changes and were in very dire condition.

When he was buried under a rock outside a gallery in the southern city of Marseille, former prisoners who had survived solitary confinement came to keep him company and a "young girl talked to me about the violin she had just bought for three hours". - Walking on clouds - In fact, so many people came to "talk to the stone" that security guards had to be stationed around the rock at night so he could get some sleep. The real wrench this time may be having to leave the rock after the week, Poincheval admitted. After previous performances, the end has always been what he called "delicate", marked by a "day in the dumps... and a lot of turbulence inside. It takes several weeks to get back to normal," he told AFP.
