(Scroll down for video) If you have the problem of shopping too much, then this new wallet is for you.

"Living Wallet," produced in Japan, allows users to be in "savings mode," which causes the wallet to flee on its own when the power reaches out for it.

The wallet, which is controlled through a smartphone application called Zaim, runs away from its owner on four small wheels. It also shouts "do not touch me" and "help me," if it is grabbed.

The wallet also sends an email to a family member of choice to alert them about the over the top spending.

The Zaim application tracks user charges to help root out unnecessary purchases and impulse buys.

(Scroll down for video) Do you want to lose weight without going for a walk? No problem, sex will do the trick.

Canadian researchers have found that having sex makes a person lose more weight than going for a walk.

Researchers have discovered exactly how many calories the average person burns during sex.

Young men burn an average of 4.2 calories per minute during sex, while women burn 3.1 calories per minute of having sex.

The average sex session lasted 24.7 minutes, which equates to men burning 104 calories and woman burning 69 calories during each sex session.

This makes sex a better exercise than going for a walk, but not as good as jogging.

The researchers from the University of Quebec in Montreal, examined 21 heterosexual couples between the ages of 18 to 35.

During four sex sessions, couples wore a SenseWear armband that tracked their energy expenditure.

They also answered questions about how tired they were, the amount of effort they put in and how much they enjoyed it.

The participants had also undergone a half hour treadmill test so that researchers could measure the amount of calories burned during exercise, and then compare it to the readings of the bracelet worn during sex.

This led them to the conclusion that people burn more calories during sex than walking.

(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested after he raped his stepdaughter while his wife cheated on him.

A woman left her three children in the care of her husband while she allegedly went to see another man.

The mother of Soweto, South Africa, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the children, left her two daughters, ages 8 and 11, and her 5-year-old son, with their stepfather while she travelled to Ekurhuleni, to meet another man.

While caring for the children, the husband sexually assaulted the eight-year-old girl.

The girl managed to escape. She went to a neighbor’s house and told them about the sexual abuse.

The neighbor called other community members after the girl said that it was not the first she had been raped. She also said that the man had raped her over a period of time.

"I was shocked and I alerted the community. The man was arrested on Tuesday," the neighbor said.

The girl told members of the community that when she told her mother about the rape, her mother did not believe her, and she threatened to beat her over her lies.

The man was arrested. When he appeared at the Protea Magistrate's Court, many residents came out to protest.

They demanded that the judge should not grant him bail.

One resident shouted: "Down with the rapist, down!"

The girl's mother was in court with a friend in support of her husband.

All three children have been removed from the home.
