To my impish mind the human bottom with its neat, vulnerable, curved groove looks like a huge smile. Think of the proverbial plumber in his too tight jeans, on his knees sweating over a drain pipe he always has a smile from behind, sometimes a little hairy. Half-exposed bottoms cause giggles and bring us down to earth, writes Rod MacKenzie.

In the case of 139 defunct co-operatives, the main reason given for the failure of a co-operative, or for it not having been started up successfully, was state contracts that had been promised (or expected) but did not materialise.

Girls who are married have their childhoods stolen from them. I’ve seen this, and how it hurts them. When I was growing up in Cotonou, Benin, several of my girlfriends from primary school were married at a very young age, writes Angélique Kidjo.
