Fifth of eurozone banks fail ECB health check: report

Some 25 eurozone banks have failed a health check by the European Central Bank, reports claimSome 25 eurozone banks have failed a health check by the European Central Bank, reports claimed Saturday, citing leaked documents. Nearly one in five of the 130 banks surveyed failed the stress test, the Wall Street Journal and the Daily Telegraph said, ahead of the publication of the official results by the ECB on Sunday. The unprecedented health check of eurozone banks comes before the ECB assumes the role of the bloc's banking supervisor next month. It hopes that a "comprehensive assessment" -- made up of a so-called asset quality reviews and a "stress test" -- will uncover any potentially nasty surprises beforehand.

Ukraine set to vote for pro-Western future

A member of a district electoral commission holds a poster with portraits of candidates for Ukraine's parliamentary elections at a polling station in Kiev, on October 25, 2014Ukrainians were to vote Sunday in parliamentary elections overshadowed by a bloody pro-Russian uprising in the east, but described by President Petro Poroshenko as a historic chance to set the country on a pro-Western path. In his final address to the nation before polls opened, Poroshenko said Saturday that the election would "complete the transfer of power" begun in the revolution last February that overthrew Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovych. His Petro Poroshenko Bloc was forecast to emerge as the biggest party in the 450 seat legislature, although without an absolute majority, meaning he will have to form a coalition, probably with harder-line nationalists. For the first time since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Communist Party was not expected to enter parliament, symbolising what Poroshenko, elected president in May with 55 percent of the vote, hopes is an irreversible political shift.

Meet Night Cable, the only iPhone charging cable made for your bedroom

Meet Night Cable, the only iPhone charging cable made for your bedroomMany people charge their smartphones every night because most handsets can’t yet offer the battery life we expect.

But using the device while it’s plugged in and charging, whether it’s a smartphone or a tablet, might be a seriously annoying endeavor because charging cables are usually rather short. FROM EARLIER: This tiny smartphone charger might be exactly what we’ve been waiting for For all these reasons, Native Union, the company that came up with the extremely popular Jump Cable 2-in-1 cable and battery solution

Paris's Picasso Museum re-opens after long-delayed refit

A visitor looks at Picasso paintings 'Large nude in a red armchair 1929' (R) and 'Large still life with a pedestal table 1931', at the Picasso museum in Paris, on October 18, 2014After a five-year closure for what was supposed to be a two-year refurbishment, Paris's Picasso Museum re-opened Saturday with arguments over the 52-million-euro ($66-million) project still reverberating. French President Francois Hollande said at a ceremony the museum was "one of the most beautiful in the world and one of the most moving because it brings together the considerable and prolific work of the best-known artist of the 20th century". The museum -- housed in a 17th-century mansion in Paris's trendy Marais quarter -- has been extensively modernised and enlarged to more than twice its previous size. The gallery, which first opened in 1985, boasts one of the world's most extensive collections of Picasso's work with 5,000 paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, photographs and documents.

This Family Doesn't Sweat: Here's Why
People with a rare disorder called anhidrosis cannot produce sweat, and now a new study finds that the condition may be caused by a mutation in a single gene. Researchers studied a Pakistani family with several children who could not sweat. The researchers' analysis of the family members' genomes revealed that a genetic mutation may have caused the condition in this family. The mutation was in a gene, called ITPR2, that controls a basic cellular process in sweat glands, according to the researchers, led by Katsuhiko Mikoshiba, a molecular cell biologist at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan, and Niklas Dahl, a genetics researcher at Uppsala University in Sweden. -- read full article
