"Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring: it was Peace." -- Milan Kundera

A new dog-friendly device has hit the streets of Istanbul. A Turkish company called Pugedon, has come up with an idea which aims to increase recycling while providing stray dogs with food and water. Every time a bottle is recycled, a fixed amount of dog food is dispensed.

There are over 150,000 stray dogs and cats living in the city and the machines are a step forward in tackling two major issues; recycling, and the feeding of stray animals.

"I want to live freely," says another girl, in Egypt. "I don’t want people to dictate what I do. No one to control us, no one to hit us, no one to tell us what clothes to wear."
In Congo, a girl starts to list her chores: “Tidying the house, fetching water, preparing meals,” she says. “There are so many I can’t even name them all.”
Their voices are part of a chorus of more than 500 girls, ages 10 to 19, from 14 developing countries. They’ve shared their challenges and dreams with the Girl Declaration, a campaign started last year by the Nike Foundation.
The aim: to change the way the world thinks about girls, says Lyric Thompson at the International Center for Research on Women, which worked with Nike on the project.
Writing this week in the journal Science, Melinda Gates says that “no society can achieve its potential with half of its population marginalized and disempowered.”
