Soothing rose or tangy lemon? People in the Indian city of Ahmadabad will notice these two smells whenever they get close to a police officer's new uniform!
The uniforms aren't finished yet, but they should be done by the end of the year.
The Ahmadabad police department is making 8,000 new uniforms for their police officers. A team of clothing designers is helping them make the uniforms.
They will be made very lightweight so that the police sweat less. And they will also smell like either rose or lemon.
J. Mahapatra, the city's head policeman, said that by December, people will see a "new fresh look" when they run into or talk with a police officer.
Ahmadabad is nearly 30°C for half the year. Its policemen can spend as many as eight hours a day outdoors. The ones that direct traffic are outside the longest. The old uniforms could sometimes smell after a day like that.

Stonehenge, a Neolithic wonder in southern England, has vexed historians and archaeologists for centuries with its many mysteries: How was it built? What purpose did it serve? Where did its towering sandstone boulders come from? That last question may finally have an answer after a study published on July 29 found that most of the giant stones — known as sarsens — seem to share a common origin 25km away in West Woods, an area that teemed with prehistoric activity. The finding boosts the theory that the megaliths were brought to Stonehenge about the same time: around 2,500 BC, the monument’s second
A bowl of grass jelly, and the childhood memories associated with it, is perfect for taking the edge off of the sweltering summer heat. Grass jelly is made by boiling dried mesona plants and adding a gelling agent such as agar to the mesona tea. This summer, the traditional treat has been given an artistic, dreamy new look with the National Palace Museum’s (NPM) “Ink-painting Jelly,” a collaboration with the Taiwanese company BlackBall Grass Jelly. When cream is poured over the jelly, a mountain design imprinted on the top of the black jelly emerges, forming a mountain scene with

How was Father’s Day? 父親節過得如何？ A: Did your dad enjoy the balloon festival? B: He loved it, although I was initially a little worried, because he doesn’t have a head for heights. A: Wow, he’s so brave to have gone for a ride in a hot air balloon. I have a fear of heights, too. B: He’s actually only on the lower end of the spectrum: he doesn’t suffer from acrophobia or vertigo: he just feels a little anxious.
