OOD DAY FOR: Executive perks, as Google has struck a deal to let jets used by top executives, including company founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, land at a restricted airstrip run by NASA that is just a few minutes from their corporate offices. Google will pay $1.3 million a year at Moffett Field, which is generally closed to private planes. (The New York Times, free registration required)

BAD DAY FOR: Office attendance, as the governor of the Ulyanovsk region in central Russia urged couples to skip work yesterday and make love to help boost the country’s low birth-rate. Any woman who gives birth in exactly nine months will qualify to win a prize, such as a fridge or TV. (Reuters)
