Obama: World needs 'prosperous and self-reliant Africa'

US President Barack Obama speaks during a "town hall" meeting at the Summit of the Washington Fellowship for the Young African Leaders Initiative in Washington, DC on July 28, 2014US President Barack Obama kicked up a major outreach to Africa on Monday by urging youth leaders to build a "prosperous and self-reliant" future for the continent built on civil rights and the rule of law. Speaking a week before almost all of Africa's leaders descend on Washington for a summit, Obama said the future stability of the world depends on progress on what is still the poorest continent. "The security and prosperity and justice that we seek in the world cannot be achieved without a strong and prosperous and self-reliant Africa," Obama told 500 young Africa students and activists. Next week's meeting will attract 50 African leaders to Washington -- almost all of them, apart from pariah figures like Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe, Sudan's Omar al-Bashir and Eritrea's Issaias Afeworki.

U.S. proposal to ban import of boa constrictors draws backlash
By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - A U.S. proposal to ban the import and interstate sale of boa constrictors and four other snake species prompted protests from exotic pet owners and concern among Florida wildlife regulators who fear it could lead to more reptiles being released into the wild. In Florida, a hotbed for the exotic pet trade where the ban would be keenly felt, an estimated 150,000 Burmese pythons descended from pets have ended up in the wild, wreaking havoc on the ecologically fragile Everglades. Banning the sale of the boa, along with the reticulated python and three anaconda species, could diminish their value and compel breeders to set them free, Kristen Penney Sommers, a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission official, warned in a letter sent last week to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. If approved, the federal ban would place the snake species in the same category as the Burmese python, as well as the African python and yellow anaconda, which are illegal to import or move across state lines under the Lacey Act. -- read full article

Lew: 'Inversion' moves offshore will hurt US finances

US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew is pictured in Washington on July 1, 2014US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew warned Monday that the surge in companies moving offshore via mergers to skirt US taxes could weaken the country's finances. Taking aim at "inversion" deals, Lew said Congress needs to amend tax laws to eliminate takeovers of foreign companies by US firms with the primary aim of seeking an address in a cheaper tax jurisdiction. "By allowing these transactions to continue, we run the risk of eroding our corporate tax base and undoing the progress we have made to reduce our budget deficits," he said in an opinion piece in the Washington Post. Lew said Congress should not only raise the bar in the tax laws to make inversions harder, but do so retroactively, so that the law would block the tax benefits of recent multibillion-dollar takeover deals like pharmaceutical giant AbbVie's acquisition of Dublin-based Shire Pharmaceuticals.

Chinese president wields economic might on LatAm tour
Chinese President Xi Jinping wrapped up a nine-day Latin American tour in Cuba on Wednesday, heading home with dozens of deals underlining Beijing's growing interest -- and influence -- in the region. Xi kicked off his trip at a summit of the BRICS emerging powers in Brazil, then traveled to Argentina, Venezuela and Cuba -- three countries that have often been among the most outspoken critics of US dominance over the region. His charm offensive began with the announcement by the BRICS -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa -- of a new $50-billion development bank and $100-billion reserve fund designed to provide an alternative to the Western-led World Bank and International Monetary Fund. "A new beginning, a new perspective, a new motivation," he said at the launch of the development bank on July 15. -- read full article

The ‘Holy Grail’ of batteries might double your smartphone’s battery life

The ‘Holy Grail’ of batteries might double your smartphone’s battery lifeResearchers from Stanford including former U.S. Secretary of Energy and Nobel laureate Steve Chu are currently working on “fixing” lithium-ion batteries in order to offer a longer charge to various devices that require such batteries, including smartphones and electric cars. A battery has three components including an anode that discharges electrons, a cathode to receive them and an electrolyte to provide electrons. Stanford researchers are trying to create a battery that has lithium in the anode as well, not only in the electrolyte. “Of all the materials that one might use in an anode, lithium has the greatest potential. Some call it the Holy Grail,” Stanford professor and leader of the research team Yi Cui said. “It is very lightweight

Fashion industry, retailers and the gender binary

FILE - This Jan. 10, 2014 file photo shows Laura Jane Grace, formerly known as Tom Gabel, of the band Against Me!, in New York. Grace, 33, publicly came out as transgender in 2012. She was born Tom Gabel and performed with the Florida-based band since 1997. At 6-2, with a mostly black wardrobe worthy of a rocker, Grace recalls the days before she was "out" and on the hunt for women's clothes. Grace said she usually shops online, shares a shoe size with her wife (a women's 10) and picks up specialty pieces in boutiques during road trips with the band that last for weeks. (Photo by Brian Ach/Invision/AP, File)NEW YORK (AP) — As a transgender woman who began her transition about a year ago, Kylie Jack is still figuring out her fashion style, but she wanted one thing right away: well-fitting bras.

Is Your Life Story Written in Your Poop?
In a new experiment, researchers studied gut and saliva bacteria in two people over a year, to investigate how microbial communities in people's bodies, called their microbiota, changed over time. The study participants provided stool and saliva samples nearly every day during the study period, and chronicled their daily health and behavior, including their diet, exercise, bowel movements and mood, using a diary app. The ratio then returned to normal when the study participant returned home, according to the study, led by Lawrence David, an assistant professor at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina. In the other study participant, an intestinal infection with Salmonella, resulted in the permanent decline of most gut bacterial types, which were replaced by genetically-similar species, according to the study published today (July 24) in the journal Genome Biology. -- read full article

Delta Aquarid Meteor Shower Peaks Tonight: How to Watch it Live Online

Delta Aquarid Meteor Shower Peaks Tonight: How to Watch it Live OnlineThe Delta Aquarid meteor shower is peaking from tonight (July 28) into Tuesday (July 29), and even if you can't catch the cosmic show in person, you can still see live views of the annual shower online. The online Slooh Community Observatory will host a webcast featuring the Delta Aquarid meteor shower as seen from Arizona and the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa, weather permitting. Astronomers predict that the peak of the shower will produce about 16 meteors per hour, Slooh representatives said. While the Delta Aquarid shower usually isn't spectacular, this year it falls during a new moon, meaning the dim "shooting stars" should stand out against the dark night sky.
