ABUJA---UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
arrived in Nigeria yesterday to commemorate
the Boko Haram bombing of his organisation s
headquarters and focus new attention on 219
schoolgirls held by the extremists.
Ban will meet with Nigeria's new president,
Muhammadu Buhari, tomorrow, amid plans to
launch a long-delayed regional offensive against
the West African country's Islamic insurgents.
A UN statement said the leaders will discuss
ways to counter violent extremism as well as
human rights and climate change.
Ban also is scheduled to meet the Bring Back
Our Girls group, which demands government
action to free 219 abducted schoolgirls held now
for nearly 500 days, according to the group.
Also tomorrow, he will lay a wreath to mark
the anniversary of the August 26, 2011 car
bombing that killed 21 people at the UN Nigeria
headquarters in Abuja.

the car exploded as he smashed into the recep-

NEW YORK---Broadway put on a very different kind
of Sunday matinee: bare-chested women and men
parading down the Great White Way.
The GoTopless Pride Parade took to the streets of
midtown Manhattan to counter critics who are com-
plaining about topless tip-seekers in Times Square.
Appearing bare-breasted is legal in New York. But
Mayor Bill de Blasio and police Commissioner Bill
Bratton say the body-painted women in Times Square
who pose for photos with tourists are a nuisance.
Gov Andrew Cuomo says the practice harkens to
the pornographic "bad old Times Square" of the past.
Yesterday's parade was among dozens of such events
staged in about 60 cities on the worldwide GoTopless
GoTopless spokeswoman Rachel Jessee says the goal
is for gender equality when it comes to baring one's

CHICAGO---On an abandoned Chicago
railway line cutting between the tree-
tops, bike commuters zip by walkers
and joggers, all traversing a ribbon of
concrete undulating through a lush
landscape where clattering freight cars
once ferried everything from coal to
This relic of the city's industrial past
is now a vision of its future. Chicago and
cities throughout the US are transforming
hulking pieces of obsolete infrastructure
into useful---even inspiring---amenities:
In this case, a park in the sky that doubles
as an alternative transportation corridor.
Since opening in June, the nearly three-
mile (five-kilometer) elevated path, called
the Bloomingdale Trail, has changed how
residents move through a section of
Chicago's northwest side that in many
places is starved of parks and inviting
pathways for pedestrians and bikes.
"This trail opened up a lot of oppor-
tunity for me," said Luke Young, a 30-
year-old web developer who now bikes
the 10 miles (16 kilometers) to his job
downtown instead of taking the train; it
takes roughly the same time. (AP)

Robert Burck, who
performs as the Naked
Cowboy, wears a bra as he
plies his trade in New
York's Times Square, on
Wednesday. New York
Gov Andrew Cuomo says
women posing nearly
naked for photos in Times
Square are breaking the
law and undermining
efforts to keep the tourist
area family friendly.
The women pose for
photos with tourists in
exchange for cash and
often wear only body
paint and a thong.
