Oxford museum exhibits roast under newly cleaned glass roof

By Estelle Shirbon LONDON (Reuters) - Exhibits including dinosaur skeletons and rare taxidermy specimens are being destroyed because of scorching temperatures in an Oxford museum after it restored its 19th century glass roof, letting in more sunlight. Home of the world's most complete dodo remains, the Oxford University Museum of Natural History now plans to apply a solar reflective film to the glass roof to reduce temperatures which have peaked at 44 degrees Celsius (111.2°F). "The removal of the film together with the removal of dirt and grime has resulted in a significant increase in UV levels," the museum said in a planning application to Oxford City Council, which has to approve the plan to solve the problem.

The Arts District's Next Big Restaurant Will Actually Keep Live Farm Animals Things are progressing along nicely for Manuela in the Arts District, it seems, as opening chef and co-owner Wes Whitsell tells LA Weekly that the new Downtown dining option could be ready to serve by early September.

For starters, the kitchen is going to be gigantic — big enough for all the usual commercial accoutrement, plus a full smoker, a separate curing room for meats, and a designated "fermentation lab" for making vinegars and the like.

Chinese takeover of Norway's Opera fails, alternative proposed

A Logo of Qihoo 360 is seen in Nanjing By Stine Jacobsen and Paul Carsten OSLO/BEIJING (Reuters) - A $1.2 billion takeover of Opera Software by a group of Chinese internet firms fell through on Monday after failing to get regulatory approval in time, sending the Norwegian browser firm's shares to a seven-month low. The deal needed a green light from the United States and China, and one firm in the Chinese consortium said U.S. privacy concerns would have led to an investigation into some of Opera's products that risked delaying the acquisition for up to a year. The so-called Kunqi consortium, which includes online and mobile games distributor Beijing Kunlun Tech Co and search and security business Qihoo 360 Technology Co, will now buy certain parts of Opera's consumer business.
