Retired cops side with Ferguson protesters

Retired Philadelphia police Captain Ray Lewis speaks with people on August 21, 2014 in Ferguson, MissouriRetired Philadelphia police captain Ray Lewis cut an arresting figure in his crisp uniform, dark blue cap -- and a sign demanding "the truth" about the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black youth. Lewis turned heads and got people talking Thursday in his first appearance at the nightly protests in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson that followed the August 9 death there at the hands of a white policeman of 18-year-old Michael Brown. "These people have been exploited and oppressed their entire lives, and now they have their own police department perhaps murdering one of their own," he told AFP around the corner from where Brown was fatally shot. Lewis, who is white, served 24 years in the Philadelphia police force, most of them in the city's edgy north side, before retiring eight years ago and embracing political activism.

(AP) — Conditions calmed this week in Ferguson after nights of sometimes violent unrest stemming from the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer.

Some tests near Imperial's Canada mine spill show high copper

The results of a tailing pond breach at Imperial Metals Corp's gold and copper mine at Mount Polley in central British Columbia are pictured in this still image from aerial handout video(Reuters) - A small number of water samples taken near the site of a major spill at Imperial Metals Corp's Mount Polley mine have shown copper levels high enough to pose a risk to fish, British Columbia officials said on Friday, but the copper did not exceed drinking water guidelines. Two samples taken deep in Quesnel Lake on Aug. 12 showed high concentrations of copper, 134 micrograms per liter and 217 micrograms per liter, according to documents posted by the province on Friday. To meet water quality guidelines for even short-term or "acute" exposure for fish, copper levels should be 8.5 micrograms per liter or less. Four other samples narrowly exceeded chronic or acute guidelines for copper exposure by aquatic life.

More evidence that we won’t see the iWatch until 2015

More evidence that we won’t see the iWatch until 2015A 2014 release date for Apple’s wearable device is looking less and less likely as new reports continuously reaffirm that manufacturing issues are holding back mass production of the iWatch. Speaking with China’s Economic Daily News, sources say that although suppliers are set to begin assembling the units in September, they will only be able to produce around 1 million per month. This wouldn’t be enough for a full retail release before the end of the year. FROM EARLIER: The best evidence yet that Apple is finally ready to mass produce the iWatch Furthermore, the time it takes from the moment the components hit the assembly line to the time the final product is ready to be shipped could be up to two months.

Jupiter, Venus and Moon Form Cosmic Triangle Before Dawn on Saturday

Jupiter, Venus and Moon Form Cosmic Triangle Before Dawn on SaturdayDuring the past couple of weeks, observers have been treated to a "twilight tango" between the two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter. Like two ships passing in the night, they first approached each other and then appeared to pass extremely close to each other on Aug. 18. Venus and Jupiter still adorn the morning sky at dawn, but they are now starting to go their separate ways after their spectacular mid-August tryst. This weekend, a slender sliver of a crescent moon will sit about 5 degrees to the lower right of Jupiter. Venus will be about 5 degrees below and to the left of Jupiter and nearly 10 degrees to the left (east) of the slender sliver of a 4-percent-illuminated moon. Your clenched fist held at arm's length is roughly equal to 10 degrees. The trio will resemble an isosceles triangle, with the arrowhead (at Jupiter) pointing upward.

Dr. Kent Brantly, who also was stricken with Ebola in Liberia, was released on Thursday. "She's tired and trying to rest," her son Jeremy told NBC. She seems pretty happy." Speaking alongside his brother Brian, he said the family has experienced "the lowest of lows and at the same time the highest of highs" since Writebol contracted the Ebola virus in July while working for a Christian mission organization in Liberia, grappling first with her potential death and later her recovery.

Botswana told to pay for foreign prisoners' HIV treatment

Anti-retroviral drugs are provided by the state to Botswana citizens at no cost to the patientBotswana's High Court on Friday ordered the government to provide treatment to HIV-positive foreign prisoners at the state's expense. Justice Bengbame Sechele ruled that the denial of anti-retroviral (ARV) treatment to foreign inmates violated their rights. Two Zimbabwean prisoners had sued the government for refusing to provide them with free ARVs, while providing them at no cost to Botswana citizens. The Botswana Network on Ethics, Law and HIV/AIDS (BONELA) had supported the challenge against government policy, saying it violated the prisoners' constitutional right to equality, dignity and non-discrimination.
