* Today's chart: prison population by country.
* "Israel's foreign minister has said there is no chance of an early solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and told people to 'learn to live with it'."

* New rights and new challenges for Saudi women.
* The Olympics picks up rugby and... golf?
* "With Southland axed, NBC's depressing surrender is almost complete."
