German high-end carmaker BMW said Tuesday it would recall more than one million additional diesel cars, citing a problem with the exhaust system that "in extreme cases can cause a fire". "In some diesel vehicles, glycol cooling fluid can leak" from a faulty component called the exhaust gas recirculation cooler, which can combine with other substances in the system to create the fire risk, the group said.

A US museum announced Monday that five artifacts it had said were fragments of the ancient manuscripts known as the Dead Sea Scrolls are in fact fake, and will no longer be displayed. Washington's Museum of the Bible -- which stirred controversy last year for its financial backing from a billionaire evangelical Christian -- removed the pieces from exhibition after a German research institution concluded that they weren't old enough. "Though we had hoped the testing would render different results, this is an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of verifying the authenticity of rare biblical artifacts, the elaborate testing process undertaken and our commitment to transparency," the museum's chief curator Jeffrey Kloha said in a statement.

The best argument I know for having children is that they provide the perfect cover for your own infantile habits. Why is there Nutella in my fridge? The kids insisted. Why does my house appear as if squatted by a blended family of pigs and rhinoceroses? (If I were single, I’d be living in a minimalist temple.) Why does my Netflix suggest Danger Mouse over News at Ten?
Beauty buffs are increasingly turning to their mobiles to discover new cosmetics, according to Facebook.
