Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg plans to demolish and rebuild four homes around his property because of privacy concerns Zuckerberg's home in PALO ALTO Wholesale Denver Broncos Jersey , Calif.

He planned to replace those structures with much smaller two-story and single-story homes that would be used as an extension of the family's living, cooking, dining and entertaining quarters Wholesale Detroit Lions Jersey , said Kathy Scott, of the Walker-Warner Architects firm working with Zuckerberg on the project.

"The idea is just to expand our client's capacity to enjoy the property," Scott said.

Palo Alto's Architectural Review Board members said plans for all four homes meet architecture standards Wholesale Green Bay Packers Jersey , but a single family using all four properties would create a compound and ruin the single-family home feel of the neighborhood.

The homes "are part of a larger compound," board member Peter Baltay said. "This is something you might find in Atherton (Calif.): A large estate, a series of guest houses Wholesale Houston Texans Jersey , recreational facilities, movie theaters surrounding a house."

Atherton, which neighbors Palo Alto Wholesale Indianapolis Colts Jersey , is one of the wealthiest cities in the United States and home to sprawling mansions.

The board voted Thursday 3-1 to recommend the city doesn't approve Zuckerberg's plan.

The project will return to the city's planning director, who will decide whether to advance it.

SRINAGAR, Indian-controlled Kashmir Wholesale Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey , Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- A policeman was killed Wednesday after protesters in Indian- controlled Kashmir targeted a police vehicle he was driving, officials said.

The protesters attacked police vehicle with brickbats after Eid- ul-Adha congregational prayers at Palhalan town, around 35 km northwest of Srinagar city Wholesale Kansas City Chiefs Jersey , the summer capital of Indian- controlled Kashmir.

"Today a policeman got killed after protesters attacked his vehicle in Palhalan," said a police official. "The protesters hurled stones and brickbats on his vehicle, following which he lost control over the vehicle Wholesale Los Angeles Chargers Jersey , resulting in its skidding upside down."

Unconfirmed reports said several policemen were also injured in the stone pelting. Officials said protests in the town broke out following Eid prayers, during which angry youth shouted anti-India slogans and threw rocks on police vehicle.

Anti-India sentiment runs deep in the psyche of majority of Kashmiris. Separatists are demanding end of New Delhi's rule in the region.

Dozens of protesters following the culmination of Eid prayers also attacked Khanynar police station in Srinagar city by throwing rocks toward it. Police had to use tear smoke shells to disperse the agitating youth.

Authorities had placed region's top separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani under house arrest, fearing his participation in prayers would trigger protest demonstrations in Srinagar.

Indian-controlled Kashmir has been reeling under conflict and violence since 1989. A guerrilla war is going on between militants and Indian troops stationed in the region.

OSLO, May 31 (Xinhua) -- The Norwegian government said on Tuesday it would present a bill to parliament in the first part of June proposing the introduction of plain packaging of tobacco products in the Nordic country.

Norway's minister of health and care services, Bent Hoie, made the announcement at an event marking the World No Tobacco Day organized by the health ministry, the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Norwegian Cancer Society.

He told Xinhua he expected to receive a positive response from a majority in the parliament before Christmas and if passed, the bill would be implemented in 2017.

"We are moving slowly towards the smoke-free generation. Statistics from last year show that only four percent of Norwegian young people between the age of 16 and 24 smoked daily and only 30 percent occasionally," Hoie said in the announcement.

"However, the consumption of smokeless tobacco snus has increased a lot in Norway and 30 percent of men and 18 percent of women use snus, which is proven to be as dangerous as smoking to human fetuses, according to a new Swedish research," he said.

The plain packaging would be introduced as a way to reduce smoking. The packaging would be dark green, proven to be people's least favorite color, Hoie said, and there will be no logos or designs.

Anne Lise Ryel, secretary general of the Norwegian Cancer Society, said the tobacco industry used consumers' emotions to advertize their products and plain packaging would remove the power of this advertizing.

"Plain packaging is one of the most important steps towards a tobacco-free society. There are six million people that die annually of use of this unnecessary product," Ryel told the international gathering, which included representatives from Australia and Britain.

Australia, Britain, France and Ireland have passed laws to implement plain packaging and many other countries are considering the same.

Norway is the first Scandinavian country that openly supported Australia as the first country in the world to implement plain packaging in 2012.
