Naked Ambition (or) The Bare Facts Candidate

More at San Francisco – News

During one five-week stretch this summer, George Davis was arrested four times while campaigning to become mayor of San Francisco. In fact, the click of the cuffs became so commonplace that Davis penned a curt letter to Mayor Gavin Newsom requesting a reprieve. And ever since then, he hasn’t been arrested once.

Of course, ever since then he’s started wearing clothes while campaigning.

He’s now got a human name — Matthew Hiasl Pan — but he’s having trouble getting his day in court. Animal rights activists campaigning to get Pan, a 26-year-old chimpanzee, legally declared a person vowed Thursday to take their challenge to Austria’s Supreme Court after a lower court threw out their latest appeal.

A provincial judge in the city of Wiener Neustadt dismissed the case earlier this week, ruling that the Vienna-based Association Against Animal Factories had no legal standing to argue on the chimps behalf. The association, which worries the shelter caring for the chimp might close, has been pressing to get Pan declared a “person” so a guardian can be appointed to look out for his interests and provide him with a home.

More here: Nudity ban

Mountaineering authorities in Nepal want to ban nudity and ‘obscene record’ bids on Mount Everest.

A Nepali climber claimed the world’s highest display of nudity on the world’s highest mountain last year. He disrobed for several minutes on the 29,035 ft summit in temperatures about -10C, reports Metro.

“There should be strict regulations to discourage such attempts by climbers,” said Ang Tshering, president of Nepal Mountaineering Association.
