colfer writes: A former Cisco exec was arrested while testifying in a hearing at a Vancouver Hotel, and spent a month in jail awaiting U.S. extradition. Now the Canadian judge says it was all a setup, with Cisco convincing U.S. prosecutors to fabricate Homeland Security charges against Peter Adekeye because he had sued Cisco.

Submission + - Grow-your-own Viagra craze hits garden centers...

colfer writes: From today's Independent

The plant is winter-flowering heather, and botanists at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, many of them heather experts who have recognised the source of its active ingredient, now expect it to be the next must-have plant in British gardens. Demand is already high. Nurseries and garden centres in some areas are having trouble finding sufficient supplies as word spreads of the plant's unexpected properties.
But not everyone is happy about this new discovery. One woman shopping at a Wyvales in Dorking yesterday said: "It's amazing. My husband has never shown any interest in gardening before, but now he's out there night and day fussing over his heathers. Frankly, I preferred it when he left the garden to me and wasn't so frisky."
