  • NEW DELHI (AP) — Mumbai may be home to Bollywood, but India's capital city wants to have fun at the movies, too.

    The first Delhi International Film Festival has been scheduled for this December. Festival director Suresh Kumar Goswami said the festival hoped to showcase the world's best cinema with films from 70 countries.

    One will be this year's best-picture Oscar winner, "The Artist" from France.

    The festival was timed to mark the century that Delhi has been India's capital city. It was made the capital of British India in 1911.

  • Farmer Tom Albaugh holds drought impacted ears of corn in a field on his farm, Monday, Aug. 20, 2012, in Ankeny, Iowa. Albaugh expects to be harvesting by the middle of September, ahead of the usual end of September or early October schedule. The harvest is three to four weeks ahead of schedule in most of the corn belt because an unusually warm spring allowed farmers to plant earlier.

    The world urgently needs to adopt drought-management policies as farmers from Africa to India struggle with lack of rainfall and the United States endures the worst drought it has experienced in decades.
