People stand between cooling towers of the Temelin nuclear power plant near the South Bohemian city of Tyn nad Vltavou April 12, 2014. The Czech Republic wants to continue expanding nuclear energy capacity despite cancelling a tender to build two new units and believes the European Union should be more supportive of atomic power, Industry Minister Jan Mladek said April 14, 2014. Majority state-owned CEZ cancelled a tender last week to build two new 1,200 MW units at the Temelin nuclear power station. The move followed a sharp fall in European power prices, and the government's denial of price guarantees had made the $10-15 billion project uneconomical. In an interview, Mladek suggested that the best hope for the future expansion of nuclear power would be a shift in EU policy away from priority support for renewable energy towards more backing for the nuclear option.

A new graffiti street art piece, suspected of being a Banksy, appeared in, Cheltenham England Monday April 14, 2014. Street artist Banksy may have struck again, leaving an espionage-themed graffiti artwork in the hometown of Britain's electronic spy agency. A stenciled artwork has appeared on a wall in the western England city of Cheltenham, depicting three figures in trench coats and trilbys snooping on a telephone booth. Cheltenham is home to GCHQ, Britain's electronic eavesdropping agency. The secretive organization found itself in the spotlight after some of its covert activities were revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The work has not been claimed on Bansky's official website, but has many of the elusive artist's hallmarks, including the stenciled technique and vein of social commentary.
