Palestinians plead for UN action to stop Gaza violence

Riyad H. Mansour (L), Palestine's Ambassador to the United Nations, shakes hands with other delegates before a Security Council meeting about the situation in Gaza July 22, 2014 at UN headquarters in New YorkThe Palestinian envoy to the United Nations held up photographs of children slain in Gaza and read out names of the dead on Tuesday as he pleaded for action from the Security Council. "On behalf of the Palestinian people, we ask: What is the international community doing to stop this bloodletting, to stop Israel's atrocities?" Riyad Mansour said during a debate on the Gaza crisis. During an emergency session on Sunday, the Security Council called for an immediate ceasefire and demanded protection for civilians, but it fell short of taking the stronger step of adopting a formal resolution. Envoys from some 60 countries lined up to address the Security Council as Israel kept up its barrage of shells and air strikes and Hamas militants hit back with rockets, pushing the Palestinian death toll to more than 600 in a conflict now in its third week.

Lax security at crash site hampers investigations

A pro-Russian fighter walks past a piece of the crashed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 near the village of Hrabove, eastern Ukraine Monday, July 21, 2014. Four days after Flight 17 was shot out of the sky, international investigators still have had only limited access to the crash site, hindered by pro-Russia fighters who control the verdant territory in eastern Ukraine. Outrage over the delays and the possible tampering of evidence at the site was building worldwide, especially in the Netherlands, where most of the victims were from. (AP Photo/Dmitry Lovetsky)HRABOVE, Ukraine (AP) — When international monitors and Malaysian aviation experts arrived Tuesday at the two main sites where the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 smashed into the undulating countryside of eastern Ukraine, there was almost no perimeter tape.

'Dear British friends': France's Fabius peeved at ship deal criticism

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius speaks to the press prior to his departure from Ben Gurion International Airport, near Tel Aviv, on July 19, 2014French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius let slip his irritation with Britain Tuesday after London slammed its warship deal with Moscow, pointing out that the British capital was full of "Russian oligarchs." The deal, under which France is selling two warships to Russia for 1.2 billion euros ($1.6 billion), comes at a time when the West has strong misgivings about Moscow's role in the Ukraine crisis, particularly after the downing of flight MH17 suspected of being targeted by pro-Kremlin rebels. British Prime Minister David Cameron said Monday that "in this country it would be unthinkable to fulfil an order like the one outstanding that the French have." I was led to believe that there were quite a few Russian oligarchs in London."

US judge urges Argentina, hedge funds to avoid default

A newsstand owner counts Argentine pesos bills in Buenos Aires on January 24, 2014A US judge on Tuesday ordered Argentina and New York-based hedge funds to urgently reach a deal to avoid Buenos Aires defaulting over more than $1.3 billion in unpaid debts. Presiding over a hearing in his Manhattan courtroom, federal judge Thomas Griesa refused to grant a request from lawyers for the South American country asking that a US Supreme Court ruling be suspended. The lawyer appointed by Griesa to mediate an agreement between the two sides has scheduled another meeting on Wednesday to find a solution before Argentina could be forced to default on July 31. Last month, Griesa blocked Argentina from paying a portion of its restructured debt, saying no payment could be made unless it also pays NML Capital and other funds owed $1.3 billion.

NFL: 2014 NFL Draft(Reuters) - Johnny Manziel has found instant popularity since being drafted in the first round by the Cleveland Browns, but will have to wait until August to find out if he has the starting quarterback job. The charismatic Manziel, whose No. 2 jersey has become the National Football League's top seller, is in competition with journeyman Brian Hoyer for the critical assignment. Browns coach Mike Pettine told reporters at team headquarters on Monday that a starting quarterback would be named by the third week of the preseason if not before. Pettine said he would meet on Tuesday with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains to decide how to split first-team reps in training camp between former Texas A&M star Manziel and Hoyer.

Taller, Fatter, Older: How Humans Have Changed in 100 Years

middel aged fat manHumans are getting taller; Most of the transformations that occur within such a short time period "are simply the developmental responses of organisms to changed conditions," such as differences in nutrition, food distribution, health care and hygiene practices, said Stephen Stearns, a professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at Yale University. But the origin of these changes may be much deeper and more complex than that, said Stearns, pointing to a study finding that British soldiers have shot up in height in the past century. "Evolution has shaped the developmental program that can respond flexibly to changes in the environment," Stearns said.

Polio still threatens Middle East after Syria, Iraq cases: U.N.

A health worker administers polio vaccination to a child in Raqqa, eastern SyriaBy Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - Thirty-six children in Syria and two in Iraq have been paralyzed by polio since October, and the risk of the virus spreading further in the Middle East remains high, U.N. aid agencies said on Tuesday. A crippling and incurable disease, polio erupted in October in the northeast province of Deir al-Zor, marking Syria's first outbreak since 1999. The two cases recorded in Iraq this year were in Iraqi children living in the Baghdad area. A polio vaccination campaign reached a record 25 million children in seven countries of the Middle East between December and June, but aid agencies need to go back to them again for follow-up shots in a second phase planned from August, the World Health Organisation and U.N. Children's Fund (UNICEF) said.
