Roma's American CEO keeps euphoria in check

FILE - In this April 8, 2013 file photo, AS Roma soccer club president James Pallotta, center, follows a Serie A soccer match between AS Roma and Lazio at Rome's Olympic stadium.

The theory goes that it's better left unsaid until your squad actually raises the trophy. Yet recently, the word has begun popping up in animated discussions inside Rome's myriad coffee bars and impassioned sports-talk radio stations. The talk, and not only in the capital, is that Roma can put together a serious challenge for the Serie A title this season. Three years after takeover by US owners, Roma is expected to contend for the Serie A title. (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino, file)ROME (AP) — For Italian soccer fans, merely mentioning the word "scudetto" — league title — is considered taboo.

Obama on IS in Syria: 'We don't have a strategy yet'

US President Barack Obama speaks in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House in Washington, DC on August 28, 2014President Barack Obama admitted Thursday he did not yet have a strategy to combat the Islamic State in Syria, quelling speculation he would imminently unleash the US military against the group in the civil-war-torn country. The president stressed though that he was developing a broad and comprehensive plan which would involve military, diplomatic and regional efforts designed to defeat IS for good, in both Syria and Iraq, not just in the short term. Obama also said that Washington did not need to choose to side with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to combat the Islamic State, which exploited a power vacuum in the middle of Syria's vicious turmoil and last week brutally executed US journalist James Foley.

Obama accuses Russia, says no US military action in Ukraine

US President Barack Obama holds a press conference in the Brady Press Briefing Room at the White House, in Washington, DC, on August 28, 2014US President Barack Obama said it was "plain for the world to see" that Russian forces were fighting in Ukraine, but ruled out any US military action to resolve the escalating conflict. Obama, who is due in Wales next week for a NATO summit, made clear that ex-Soviet states now in the alliance could expect a US military defense, but said such guarantees did not apply to non-member Kiev. He however told reporters that he would host Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in September to discuss the escalating crisis. Obama's comments came after NATO reported that hundreds of Russian government troops had crossed into east Ukraine to shore up the pro-Kremlin fighters there.

Investors look at information displayed on an electronic screen at a brokerage house in ShanghaiChinese fund managers will cut the proportion of their portfolios invested in stocks over the next three months, following July's upward trend, as hopes for a quick economic recovery falter, a Reuters poll shows. "China's recovery is not at all stable. It is still possible that things will get worse, so market sentiment is volatile," a fund manager based in south China said. Chinese fund managers reduced their suggested equity allocation for the next three months to 77.2 percent from 81.9 percent a month earlier, according to a poll of nine China-based fund managers conducted this week.

The NFL logo and the San Diego Chargers logo are shown together at Qualcomm Stadium, in San Diego, CaliforniaBy Eric Kelsey LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The National Football League, stung by a public uproar from critics who said it was too lenient on a player accused of assaulting his fiancée, on Thursday announced stricter domestic violence penalties. Players will now receive a six-game ban for a first-time violation of the league's policy and an indefinite ban for a second violation, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a letter to team owners obtained by Reuters.

Women's and family groups blasted the NFL after it suspended Rice for only two games in July for allegedly assaulting his then-fiancee and now wife.

Scientists solve mystery of moving Death Valley rocks
By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A solution to the longstanding mystery of why rocks move erratically across an isolated patch of California's Death Valley finally emerged on Thursday, when researchers published a study showing the driving force was sheets of wind-driven ice. Trails from the movement of the rocks, which show them changing direction suddenly in their movement across the so-called Racetrack Playa, have long befuddled scientists and the general public. Paleobiologist Richard Norris of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, who led the study, saw the rare phenomenon first-hand last December while standing with his cousin, engineer James Norris, at the spot. -- read full article

How Far, the Stars? Quasars Solve 'Seven Sisters' Star Cluster Mystery

How Far, the Stars? Quasars Solve 'Seven Sisters' Star Cluster MysteryLead researcher Carl Melis first took on the project five years ago while still in graduate school at the University of California, Los Angeles, after meeting with John Stauffer (a co-author on the paper). Melis recalled being astounded to learn there was a dispute over how far away the Pleiades are from Earth. "Here's this canonical cluster — everyone knows the Pleiades, even the layperson — and we don't even know how far away it is," Melis, who is now an astrophysicist at the University of California, San Diego, told Space.com. When astronomers estimate stellar distances for objects that are relatively close to Earth, they use a method called parallax.

Scientists dig into Ebola's deadly genes for clues

This undated handout photo provided by the journal Science shows Augustine Goba, laboratory director at Kenema Government Hospital in Sierra Leone. On Thursday, officials at the National Institutes of Health announced that they were launching safety trials on a preliminary vaccine for Ebola. Researchers have already checked that still-not-tested vaccine against some of the more than 350 mutations in this strain of Ebola to make sure the changes the disease is making won’t undercut science’s hurried efforts to fight it, said Pardis Sabeti, a scientist at Harvard University and its affiliated Broad Institute. She and Gire, also at Broad and Harvard, are two of the lead authors of a study published Thursday in the journal Science that maps the killer disease strain based on specimens collected from 78 patients.
