At least 27 dead in fighting in Yemen's Taez

The remains of the Republican Palace in the southwestern Yemeni city of Taez pictured on April 17, 2015 following a reported air raidAt least 27 people were killed in the Yemeni city of Taez in clashes between loyalist forces and rebels as well as Saudi-led coalition air raids, medical sources said Saturday. Residents said the city in southwest Yemen was rocked by explosions and gunfire overnight as the coalition-backed forces of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi battled pro-Iranian Huthi Shiite rebels.

US piles pressure on Athens as Greek crisis roils markets

US Secretary of the Treasury Jacob Lew leaves after a meeting with Senators on Capitol Hill April 14, 2015 in Washington, DCThe United States piled pressure on Greece Friday to agree to key reforms to obtain new EU financing, but equity markets sank in fear that Athens is headed for default. Stepping into the latest European financial crisis, both President Barack Obama and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said Greece needs to reach a deal that will get it 7.2 billion euros ($7.8 billion) more in bailout financing from the European Union. Lew warned in discussions with Eurogroup President and Netherlands Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem that no agreement between the two sides "would create immediate hardship for Greece, and uncertainties for Europe and the global economy more broadly," the Treasury said.

Former IMF chief Rodrigo Rato is flanked by police as he leaves his office in madrid, on April 17, 2015Spanish tax authorities carried out new searches of former IMF chief Rodrigo Rato's Madrid offices in a money-laundering probe as the country questioned whether he had been made a scapegoat in the ruling Popular Party's anti-corruption drive. Rato is already being investigated for alleged fraud during his time as chief executive at Bankia, a Spanish bank which needed to be bailed out by the government. The 66-year-old told El Pais newspaper that he was "actively cooperating with investigators" in the new investigation. Spain's state prosecutor ordered the searches as part of a probe into suspected money laundering, fraud and asset-stripping, a source close to the investigation told AFP.

San Francisco's Department of the Environment and Charge Across Town also helped bring the three Electric Vehicle Autonomous Renewable Chargers, each with a value of $45,000, to the city. The self-contained charging stations will remain in San Francisco through the rest of 2015, though they'll be changing venues every few months.

Spieth fires 62, Merritt goes one better to lead

PGA: RBC Heritage-First Round(Reuters) - Jordan Spieth bounced back from a Masters hangover by firing a nine-under 62 on Friday, but fellow American Troy Merritt went one better with a record-tying 61 to take a four-shot lead at the RBC Heritage in South Carolina. Merritt made seven birdies on the back nine, closing with four in a row to match the course record round set by South African David Frost in 1994 for a 36-hole total of 12-under-par 130 at Harbour Town Golf Links. "I had my tempo down the stretch, especially with the irons," said Merritt, sporting a striking blue plaid shirt as he pursued his first PGA Tour title in his 86th start. "I plan to enjoy the moment, hit some good shots, not think about it too much and just add them up at the end of the day." Tied for second at eight-under 134 were defending champion Matt Kuchar (66) and John Merrick (65), with 2013 winner Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland (69), 2010 champion Jim Furyk (64) and Kevin Kisner (67) another shot away on 135.

Man Goes Exploring with Metal Detector, Finds Roman-Era Grave

Man Goes Exploring with Metal Detector, Finds Roman-Era GraveA man in England went exploring with a metal detector and made the discovery of a lifetime: an exquisitely preserved Roman-era grave filled with artifacts, including bronze jugs, mosaic glassware, coins and hobnails from a pair of shoes, all dating to about A.D. 200. The grave likely belonged to a wealthy individual, said Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews, the archaeology and outreach officer for the North Hertfordshire District Council. Once Fitzpatrick-Matthews and his colleagues located the grave, they also found evidence of a nearby building, likely a shrine or temple, attached to a villa. The man with the metal detector, Phil Kirk, found the grave in a field in Kelshall, a small village located between London and Cambridge.

Breastfeeding could keep new moms tobacco free

For new moms who smoked during pregancy, breastfeeding could keep them from relapsing, according to a new study.Seventy percent of moms-to-be who quit smoking during pregnancy pick it up again within the first year after childbirth, but breastfeeding could reduce that statistic, according to a new study. "Breastfeeding seems to be a protective factor against increases in smoking after childbirth, so interventions should educate women about breastfeeding to maximize effectiveness," says Shannon Shisler of the State University of New York at Buffalo. Of new moms who relapse, 67 percent revisit the habit just three months after their children are born and 90 percent resume by six months, according to the study, which was published in the journal Nicotine and Tobacco Research. "Although women decreased their tobacco consumption across their pregnancy, by nine months postpartum they had substantially increased their smoking," says Shisler, who adds that at this point they went back to smoking more than half of the cigarettes they smoke per day before conceiving.
