Market Basket mulls ex-CEO's buyout offer as employees rally
Family-owned New England supermarket chain Market Basket said on Friday it will "seriously consider" a buyout offer from its ousted CEO Arthur T. Demoulas, as thousands of people rallied near the company's headquarters for the executive's return. Demoulas was fired by the board of directors in June after a power struggle with his cousin Arthur S. Demoulas, triggering a rare revolt by employees who hailed his worker-friendly policies. The Demoulas family founded Market Basket in 1962. "The Board will evaluate and seriously consider this proposal, along with any other offers previously received and to be received," according to a statement from the board of Demoulas Supermarkets, which owns the Market Basket chain. -- read full article

Japanese PM arrives for LatAm tour eying energy deals

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto (L) and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe walk during the welcoming ceremony at the Nacional Palace in Mexico City, on July 25, 2014Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe launched a five-country Latin American tour in Mexico on Friday, keen to strike energy deals on the heels of the Chinese president's visit to the resource-rich region. Abe will also travel to Trinidad and Tobago, Colombia, Chile and Brazil in a nine-day visit that comes two days after China's Xi Jinping wrapped up his own four-country tour, underlining Asia's growing interest in the region's fast-growing economies and vast natural resources. With Japan on the lookout for new power sources after the Fukushima disaster forced the shutdown of its nuclear reactors, energy will be high on the prime minister's agenda. Japan's top-selling newspaper, Yomiuri Shimbun, reported Friday that Tokyo plans to provide financial and technical support to help Mexico develop its nascent shale gas sector, aiming to start importing Mexican gas in the mid-2020s.

US sees world trade deal at risk over customs disaccord

US trade representative Michael Froman speaks to reporters during a press conference in Singapore on May 20, 2014The World Trade Organisation is facing a "crisis" because of disagreement -- most notably with India -- over improved customs procedures, the United States said Friday. "We are deeply disappointed that backsliding on Trade Facilitation has brought the WTO to the brink of crisis," the US ambassador to the world trade body, Michael Froman, said in a statement. "The current state of play on Trade Facilitation threatens to deal a serious blow to the credibility of the multilateral trading system and to set back the development needs of many countries around the world," he said.

Unlocking phones in the US will soon be legal

Unlocking phones in the US will soon be legalThe House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill this afternoon legalizing cell phone unlocking, following the lead of the US Senate earlier this summer. President Obama came out in support of the policy over a year ago, spurring this activity in Congress, and now all that's left is for him to sign this bill into law — which the president has said that he'll do. "The bill Congress passed today is another step toward giving ordinary Americans more flexibility and choice, so that they can find a cell phone carrier that meets their needs and their budget," Obama says in a statement. "I commend Chairmen Leahy and Goodlatte, and Ranking Members Grassley and Conyers for their leadership on this important consumer issue and look forward to signing this bill into law."

Massachusetts judge won't toss murder charge against ex-NFL player

Former NFL player Aaron Hernandez attends hearing in Bristol County Superior Court in Fall River, MassachusettsBy Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - A Massachusetts judge refused to toss out murder and firearms charges against ex-New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez in last summer's killing of a semi-professional soccer player. Bristol Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh in a ruling late Thursday rejected the defense's argument that prosecutors lack probable cause to charge Hernandez in the execution-style slaying of Odin Lloyd, 27, near Hernandez's home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts, about 30 miles (48 km) south of Boston. Hernandez, 24, has pleaded not guilty to all charges, including five counts related to illegal firearms possession. A tight end and one of the league's top franchises, Hernandez had been a rising NFL star before he lost his $41 million contract with the New England Patriots.

Alien Planet's Size Measured Like Never Before

Alien Planet's Size Measured Like Never BeforeUsing observations by NASA's Kepler and Spitzer space telescopes, researchers determined that the exoplanet Kepler-93b is 1.48 times the size of Earth, confirming its status as a super-Earth — a world slightly larger than our own — and allowing scientists to conclude that the planet is very likely composed of iron and rock. "With Kepler and Spitzer, we've captured the most precise measurement to date of an alien planet's size, which is critical for understanding these far-off worlds," lead author Sarah Ballard, of the University of Washington in Seattle, said in a statement. Ballard and her team used a new observing technique developed for Spitzer, combined with frequent observations from Kepler, to confirm that Kepler-93b is indeed a planet rather than a false positive. In the visible-light wavelengths observed by Kepler and the infrared wavelengths captured by Spitzer, the signal remained the same.

Astronaut's View on Israel-Gaza Conflict: No Borders Visible from Space

Astronaut's View on Israel-Gaza Conflict: No Borders Visible from SpaceEarlier this week, German astronaut Alexander Gerst posted photos of Israel and the Gaza Strip from space. "Some things that on Earth we see in the news every day and thus almost tend to accept as a 'given,' appear very different from our perspective," Gerst wrote in a blog post on the European Space Agency's website. "We do not see any borders from space," Gerst said. Gerst explained that he noticed unusual streaks of light and "orange fireballs" on the planet after he floated into the space station's cupola — a dome with seven large windows that look down at Earth.

Keryx drug improves phosphorus, iron in kidney patients: trial
(Reuters) - A pivotal trial of Keryx Biopharmaceuticals Inc's experimental drug Zerenex showed that it improved levels of serum phosphorus and iron in patients on kidney dialysis, according to results published on Thursday. The trial involved 441 patients, according to the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, which published the results. Over the four-week efficacy assessment period, mean serum phosphorus for Zerenex patients dropped by 2.2 milligrams per deciliter compared with placebo patients, the trial showed. Most patients with kidney disease that requires dialysis need chronic treatment with phosphate-binding agents to lower and maintain serum phosphorus at acceptable levels. -- read full article
