  • FBI looking into security of Clinton private email account: Washington Post


    WASHINGTON The FBI has begun looking into the security of Hillary Clinton’s private email setup, contacting in the past week a Denver-based technology firm that helped manage the unusual system, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday, citing two government officials. The FBI last week also contacted Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, with questions about the security of a thumb drive in his possession that contains copies of work emails Clinton sent during her time as secretary of state, the Post said. Clinton’s use of her private email account linked to a server in her New York home for her work as America’s top diplomat came to light in March and drew fire from political opponents who accused the Democratic presidential candidate of sidestepping transparency and record-keeping laws. “The government is seeking assurance about the storage of those materials. We are actively cooperating,” Kendall said in a statement. At least four emails from the account used by …

  • Denis Leary on Jon Stewart’s exit: ‘What the f*** is wrong with you?’


    Jon Stewart is only days away from ending his run as “Daily Show” host, and Denis Leary is still trying to figure out why he’s leaving. “When we found out that you were offered this big contract and that you were basically turning it down to spend time with your family — it was a big contract, they said it was $50 million,” Leary said. “I think you’re thinking of [Dave] Chappelle,” Stewart interrupted. “Still it was a lot of money, right? We all thought the same thing which is this is a guy who is very brave, courageous, and a good dad,” Leary continued. “Here’s what I’m going to say … what the f*** is wrong with you? Do you know how much f***ing therapy you could buy for your kids with 50 f***ing million dollars!” Leary, who made his 17th and final appearance on Tuesday, then told Stewart it wasn’t too late to …

  • Report: Texans unlikely to pursue Ray Rice


    Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice (Andrew Weber/USA TODAY Sports). The Houston Texans are in need of a running back after star Arian Foster foster suffered a groin injury Monday that’s expected to require surgery. But according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle, don’t expect the Texans to sign former Baltimore Ravens back Ray Rice to help make up for Foster’s absence. Wilson said Houston owner Bob McNair isn’t likely to approve any pursuit of Rice by his team.

Rice was reinstated by the NFL in late November after an appeal of his indefinite suspension, but has yet to be invited to try out for any NFL teams as he attempts to make a comeback. “I don’t want my career to be defined by …

  • Loss of world’s rarest ape charted


    There are only 26-28 Hainan gibbons left in the wild Historical Chinese documents have helped scientists to track the decline of the world’s rarest primates. Today, China has between 26 and 28 Hainan gibbons left, but government records that date back to the 17th Century show that gibbons were once widespread across half of the country. The apes began to disappear from the documents about 150 years ago, corresponding with population growth. The study is published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. Hainan gibbons are now limited to a few isolated patches of forest in the south west of China. They live in just four social groups, one of which was only discovered a few weeks ago. Understanding this population crash has been difficult, but the old government documents have helped to reveal when and how the numbers fell. The archives show that gibbons were once widespread across China Dr Sam Turvey, from …

  • Giant Magellan Telescope Organization president resigns


    Ed Moses has left the Giant Magellan Telescope Organization Ed Moses, the head of the body constructing the $1bn Giant Magellan Telescope (GMT), has announced he has left the organization, citing personal reasons. Moses, who was president of the Giant Magellan Telescope Organization (GMTO), has departed after only 10 months in the role “to deal with family matters that require his attention”, according to a GMTO statement. The news of Moses’ departure comes just weeks after Wendy Freedman, chair of the organization’s board, stepped down in early July. The GMT is scheduled to be fully operational in Chile’s Atacama Desert by 2024, when it will become the world’s largest optical telescope. Moses joined the GMTO as its first president last September, after a stint running the National Ignition Facility at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. In June the project received a major boost when the GMT’s 11 international partners committed more than $500m to start construction of …

  • Banned Medicaid providers still participate in some states, report says


    Hundreds of medical providers banned from a Medicaid program in one state are able to take part in another state’s program despite regulations designed to stop them, according to a report by an independent federal auditor to be released on Wednesday. The continued participation of banned providers leaves state Medicaid programs for the poor and disabled vulnerable to fraud, waste and abuse, according to the study, which says the problem reflects a struggle by states to communicate with one another. The study, conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General (OIG), also found that about half of the states were unable to terminate providers enrolled in privately run Medicaid managed care programs. Some refuse to terminate providers still licensed by a medical board, it found. “If a provider has been terminated by a state, that is a red flag, because it would indicate there was a problem either …

  • Three times lucky as Kerry swaps crutches for Kennedy clan cane


    KUALA LUMPUR U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday swapped the crutches he has been on since breaking his leg in a cycling accident in May for a silver-handled cane that served successive members of the Kennedy clan, including former president John Kennedy and his father Joseph. Kerry appeared with the cane at meetings with countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Malaysia. He said it had been loaned to him by Vicki Kennedy, widow of Senator Teddy Kennedy. “This cane has a history,” Kerry joked at the start of one meeting in Kuala Lumpur. “This cane belonged to Ambassador Joseph B. Kennedy in England during the war. And after the war, President Kennedy, before he became president, used this cane when his back was bad after the war,” he said. “And then Teddy Kennedy, who broke his back, used the cane,” Kerry said, adding that Teddy Kennedy had loaned him the …
