Good riddance!

The Energy Department has quietly dismantled the last of its enormous B-53 nuclear bombs. Workers at a nuclear management plant just north of Amarillo, Texas, separated some 300 pounds of high explosive from the uranium that surrounds it inside the bomb.
It’s a complex procedure. On Tuesday, Hans Kristensen, director of the Nuclear Information Project at the Federation of American Scientists, told NPR’s All Things Considered that working on the B-53 was like doing surgery on a small sedan.

Indian girls hold up their name change certificates during a ceremony in Satara, some 250kms from Mumbai, on Oct. 22. More than 100 Indian girls named “Unwanted” by their parents are to get new names this weekend as part of a campaign to tackle bias against women that has led to the country’s huge gender imbalance. The girls named “Nakusa”, which means “unwanted” in the local Marathi language of western Maharashtra state, got rid of their first name for good under an initiative in the district of Satara.
