  • Man hunting geese in New Jersey accidentally kills himself: police


    (Reuters) – A man hunting geese with his father in New Jersey shot and killed himself in what police said Sunday appeared to be an accident. Police in West Windsor Township, about 40 miles northeast of Philadelphia, said the 45-year-old victim and his father were properly licensed to hunt the birds. Investigators said it appears the victim died from a single gunshot wound to the head and neck from his own firearm on Saturday afternoon. “Although incredibly tragic, it is believed that the incident was solely an accident,” police said in a statement. The pair, who were the only members of the hunting party, had Canada geese decoys spread out around the wooded area where they were looking for the birds, a news release said. The identity of the victim has not been released. (Reporting by Victoria Cavaliere; Editing by Eric Walsh)

  • Obama to Republican critics on immigration: ‘Pass a bill’


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama shrugged off criticism of his executive action on immigration with a challenge to House of Representatives Republicans: if you don’t like it, do something. Obama was asked in an interview broadcast on Sunday about House Speaker John Boehner’s assertion that he was acting like an emperor in using executive powers to tackle the issue of the 11 million immigrants living in America without documents. “Well, my response is pass a bill,” Obama said in the interview with ABC’s “This Week” taped on Friday. “Congress has a responsibility to deal with these issues and there are some things that I can’t do on my own.” Obama announced on Thursday he was easing the threat of deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants. His measures include allowing some 4.4 million people who are parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents and who have been in the country for five years …

  • Exclusive: Why TV anchors met secretly with Ferguson officer who shot Michael Brown


      Practically every journalist covering the death of Michael Brown would like to interview Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Brown. In the pursuit of that interview, several high-profile television anchors have secretly met with Wilson, according to sources at several TV networks. All of the meetings were off the record, meaning the anchors could not describe what was said. These meetings are a normal part of the TV guest booking process, but they’re significant in this case because Wilson has not been seen in public since Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9. Among the anchors who have met with Wilson are Matt Lauer of NBC, George Stephanopoulos of ABC, Scott Pelley of CBS, and Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon of CNN. It is unclear if Wilson, through his representatives, has agreed to be interviewed by any of the journalists. Shortly after I named the anchors on my CNN media …

  • Kenya ‘kills 100 Shabab militants’


    23 November 2014 Last updated at 19:29 Security provisions in Mandera county have been criticised following the attack The Kenyan military has killed more than 100 al-Shabab militants linked to a deadly attack on a bus, Kenya’s deputy president says. William Ruto said the armed forces had carried out two operations in Somalia, destroying equipment and a camp from which the bus attack was planned. However, al-Shabab refuted this, and said that its fighters were safe. In Saturday’s attack, gunmen pulled non-Muslims passengers from a bus in northern Kenya, killing 28 of them. Al-Shabab has carried out a series of attacks in Kenya since 2011, the year that Kenya sent troops into Somalia to help battle the Islamist group. Mr Ruto gave details of the military operation after attending a Sunday service at a church in Nyahururu. The driver of the bus tried to accelerate away from the militants, but the vehicle got stuck in …

  • Vine shifts from comedy clips to a valid journalistic tool


    Just before Channel 4 News’s chief correspondent Alex Thomson set off on a reporting assignment to Ebola-hit Sierra Leone earlier this month, one of the show’s digital producers pulled him aside and suggested he should “do some Vines” while he was there. “I looked at him blankly,” says Thomson. “Images of vineyards floated into my head.” Vine is a video sharing app that allows a user to film and edit six-second clips, which loop continuously, and post them online. It launched in June 2012 and was bought by Twitter in October the same year. It now claims 100 million people are watching Vines each month. Although it is still mainly used for visual gags and comedy – France’s Jerome Jarre, for example, has more than 7 million followers and has turned comedy “Vining” into a career – Vine is becoming an increasingly popular journalistic reporting tool. In recent months Vines have been used to report …

  • Unique sense of ‘touch’ gives a prolific bacterium its ability to infect anything


    Related images(click to enlarge) New research has found that one of the world’s most prolific bacteria manages to afflict humans, animals and even plants by way of a mechanism not before seen in any infectious microorganism — a sense of touch. This unique ability helps make the bacteria Pseudomonas aeruginosa ubiquitous, but it also might leave these antibiotic-resistant organisms vulnerable to a new form of treatment. Pseudomonas is the first pathogen found to initiate infection after merely attaching to the surface of a host, Princeton University and Dartmouth College researchers report in the journal the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. This mechanism means that the bacteria, unlike most pathogens, do not rely on a chemical signal specific to any one host, and just have to make contact with any organism that’s ripe for infection. The researchers found, however, that the bacteria could not infect another organism when a protein on their surface known …

  • Pregnant Egyptian woman dies of H1N1 swine flu: health ministry


    CAIRO (Reuters) – An Egyptian woman who was six months pregnant has died of H1N1 swine flu, five days after being admitted to hospital, a health ministry spokesman said on Sunday. The 31-year-old woman, who was not named, was admitted on Nov. 18 with flu-like symptoms and was placed in intensive care when she did not respond to treatment, Hossam Abdel Ghaffar said. “We thought it was bird flu, but she tested positive for the H1N1 flu instead,” Ghaffar said. Two people died from bird flu in Egypt in the past week. (Reporting By Mahmoud Mourad and Ali Abdelatti; Writing by Shadi Bushra; Editing by Jon Boyle)

  • I’m thankful our country is still a refuge and the land of opportunity


    When I was 7 years old, my family and I landed at JFK Airport in New York City with $90 in our pocket, a few suitcases stuffed with what little we could carry and no idea of what to expect next.  We came here because we were fleeing a totalitarian regime, because generations of our family had been oppressed simply for existing and because the United States was a beacon for our hopes and aspirations, as it has been for millions of others around the globe. ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT The people literally dying to come here now do not believe that our best days are behind us. My paternal grandfather was sent to Soviet gulag in the prime of his life because he was a religious Jew who refused to work on Saturdays and, possibly, because some of his siblings had fled to France several years after the Russian revolution.  He spent years working as a …

  • Lost kitten from New Mexico turns up in duffel bag in Maine


    ALBUQUERQUE N.M. (Reuters) – An Albuquerque cat owner can sleep easier now that the kitten that went missing last month will be home for the holidays, despite a mysterious 2,300-mile side trip to Maine. Patsy Murphy, who runs an animal refuge center in Westbrook, Maine, said the kitten, named Spice, was brought to her shelter on Nov. 11 by a man who found the feline in a duffel bag while unloading furniture at a local Catholic charity. “This is a very odd story, we wish she could tell us what happened,” Murphy said of the kitten, which was found inside the bag with food and kitty litter. Murphy said Maine resident Bob Watterson brought the kitten home on Nov. 5, and cared for it for six days before he turned it over to the animal refuge, which found a microchip in the cat that could identify it. Murphy was shocked when the cat was traced …
