    Far from catwalk, Brazilian favela dreams of fashion

    As the setting sun casts an orange glow over the Sao Paulo slum of Paraisopolis, a dozen aspiring models sporting towering heels strut up and down an improvised catwalk. Again, walk!" shouts their coach, who is teaching the teenagers the tricks of the trade as part of a project to spread the glitter of the Brazilian mega-city's famous fashion week, which wraps up Friday, to some of its poorest residents.

    A very exclusive coffee kick on St Helena island

    Imported from Yemen in the 18th century, the tiny South Atlantic island's green-tipped Bourbon Arabica coffee plant produces some of the world's most expensive -- and most delectable -- beans. St Helena coffee's most famous fan was French emperor Napoleon, who said it was "the only good thing" about living in exile in a rat-infested house on the island for six years until his death in 1821.

In fact, rosés even replaced reds as the country's most popular wine over the course of the year, accounting for 30% of the overall wine market. Unlike the French, however, Italians have decreased their rosé wine …

    EU moves closer to counting calories in alcoholic drinks

    Health conscious tipplers may be closer to finding out just how many calories they are imbibing as consumer advocates push for EU nutritional labelling on alcoholic drinks in the face of strong industry resistance. The European Parliament took a first step last month when it called on the European Commission to draw up legislation requiring such labelling by 2016. It was sweet revenge for Glenis Willmott, a Labour MEP from Britain who steered the proposal through the committee after a first …
