The British government says it will announce legislation to tighten immigration rules, reform pensions and reduce red tape for business when it lays out its legislative plans for the next year. The measures will be announced by Queen Elizabeth II during the pageant of power, pomp and politics known as the State Opening of Parliament. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)

    FILE - In this Oct. 18, 2012 file photo two people walk past a poster showing three naked men which has had red tape added to cover the sensitive parts of the three men, in Vienna, Austria. Poster reads: "Naked Men". A prestigious Vienna museum, The Leopold Museum, says a man took the concept of life imitating art to an extreme recently when he suddenly stripped at an exhibition of pictures and sculptures portraying nude men through the ages. A museum spokesman said Tuesday Dec. 11, 2012 that after taking his clothes off, the man calmly sauntered through the exhibition, dressing again only after a security guard asked him to do so.

    Senior technologist Dariusz Czolak prepares to present the process of epitaxy in the Institute of Electronic Materials Technology (ITME) laboratory in Warsaw October 23, 2012. Poland, the biggest economy in eastern Europe, has seen two decades of vigorous economic growth and yet -- based on several different measurements -- is one of Europe's least innovative economies. To compete in the future, the country will need to replace its low costs with innovation. Shortcomings in the education system are a big part of Poland's lack of innovation. Moreover, universities do not cooperate well with business, the state does not encourage companies to take risks by developing their own technology, and thickets of red tape stifle activity.

Poster reads: "Naked Men". A prestigious Vienna museum, The Leopold Museum, has been forced to cover up a graphic poster advertising a new show devoted to male nudity, after protests that it is offensive. The show — "Nude Men from 1800 to Today" — opened its doors Friday Oct. 20, looking at how artists have dealt with the theme of male nudity over the centuries. (AP Photo/Ronald Zak)

    Confiscated cars are seen in a yard of ODDY in Athens

    Posted: 9/11/2012 6:44:20 AM EST
    Confiscated cars are seen in a yard of ODDY, the Public Property Management Organisation, in Athens September 5, 2012. Known by its Greek acronym ODDY, the Organisation for Public Property Management ran warehouses nationwide that auctioned off anything from old sofas discarded from city hall waiting rooms to luxury cars confiscated from drug dealers. Now, efforts to consign ODDY itself to the scrapheap, along with its loss-making payroll costs, show just how hard it is for the Greek government to satisfy foreign creditors' demands that it shut down dozens of state agencies to save money; it may say it is waging war on red tape, but the red tape may be winning.
