Syrian activists accuse Assad of new gas attacks

In this image taken from video obtained from the Shaam News Network, posted on April 18, 2014, an anti-Bashar Assad activist group, which has been authenticated based on its contents and other AP reporting, two women and a young girl are treated by a medic in Kfar Zeita, a rebel-held village in Hama province some 200 kilometers (125 miles) north of Damascus. Syrian opposition activists and other witnesses tell The Associated Press that Syrian government forces have attacked rebel-held areas with poisonous chlorine gas in recent months. They say the attacks left scores of men, women and children coughing, choking and gasping for breath. The reports have been denied by the Syrian government and have yet to be confirmed by any foreign country or international organization. But if true, they highlight the limitations of the global effort to rid Syria of its chemical weapons. (AP Photo/Shaam News Network)BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian government forces have attacked rebel-held areas with poisonous chlorine gas in recent weeks and months, leaving men, women and children coughing, choking and gasping for breath, according to Associated Press interviews with more than a dozen activists, medics and residents on the opposition side.

Car bomb kills four in Kenyan capital
By Humphrey Malalo NAIROBI (Reuters) - Four people killed when a car bomb exploded outside a police station in a poor neighborhood of the Kenyan capital Nairobi on Wednesday, the Interior Ministry said. Police officers had earlier stopped the saloon car at traffic lights and were taking the occupants for questioning when the bomb exploded, the ministry said. Kenya's security forces are struggling to contain a surge in bomb and gun attacks that the authorities blame on the Somali Islamist militants who killed at least 67 people when they laid siege to Nairobi's Westgate shopping mall in September. Kenyans are increasingly alarmed at the relative ease at which the militants and radicalized youths are able to carry out deadly strikes in the heart of Kenya, east Africa's biggest economy. -- read full article

Canada, France face off again over island claims

General view of St Pierre in the French archipelago of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, off the coast of Canada, on April 21, 2007A longstanding feud over two French islands near Canada's Atlantic Coast was rekindled Wednesday, when Ottawa contested Paris's request that the UN recognize its control of waters around Saint-Pierre-and-Miquelon. France had filed an application with the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf last week, seeking a vast economic zone around the islands' coastlines. France's claim aimed "to assert its rights, in compliance with international law," foreign ministry spokesman Romain Nadal said last week. But Canada had already filed an overlapping claim, and on Wednesday it vowed to fight France's efforts to extend its territory in North America.

Obama fulfils dreams of sushi on first night in Tokyo

US President Barack Obama (L) shakes hands with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe before a private dinner at Sukiyabashi Jiro restaurant in Tokyo on April 23, 2014US President Barack Obama dined Wednesday at a tiny Tokyo sushi restaurant -- a revered spot with three coveted Michelin stars but only a handful of seats -- ruled with an iron rod by its redoubtable 88-year-old owner. The world's most powerful man, dining at the invitation of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, was entirely at the mercy of Jiro Ono, whose exacting standards and tireless work ethic have made him legendary among global foodies. Sukiyabashi Jiro -- Wednesday's venue -- has only 24 seats, sits in a slightly scruffy basement of an ageing commercial building and is connected to a Tokyo subway station. Obama made the pilgrimage to the restaurant just after touching down in Tokyo at the start of an Asian tour, and took along US ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy and his national security advisor Susan Rice.

Gambling
Gambling With Our Future - by Jerry Jasinowski "The gambling known as business," said the 19th century wit Ambrose Bierce, "looks with austere disfavor upon the business known as gambling." You can count me among the business spokesmen who look with disfavor on gambling, and especially upon the pell-mell rush of state governments to embrace gambling as a source of state revenue. At least 39 states today authorize some form of casino gambling, up from only two in 1988, and more casinos are under construction or being planned in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Maryland. -- read full article

Buffalo Bill cheerleaders join NFL push-'em-back, sue over wages
By Curtis Skinner NEW YORK (Reuters) - Five former Buffalo Bills cheerleaders have sued the New York state football team, claiming it violated state wage laws by forcing them to work hundreds of hours without pay, cover their own travel expenses and spend hundreds of dollars on uniforms. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in New York State Supreme Court by the former Buffalo Jills, is the third case this year brought against National Football League teams claiming wage violations. It follows similar suits brought by members of the Oakland Raiderettes and Cincinnati Ben-Gals. The five cheerleaders, who worked between 2010 and 2014, said in the complaint that the team and two companies that managed the cheer squad took unlawful deductions from their wages (including the cost of uniforms), forced them to work up to 840 unpaid hours a year - the equivalent of 21 40-hour weeks - at practices and promotional events and made them pay $650 for their uniforms. -- read full article

Scientists monitor huge iceberg that broke off from Antarctica

The B-31 Iceberg is seen after separating from a rift in Antarctica's Pine Island GlacierBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Scientists are monitoring an iceberg roughly six times the size of Manhattan - one of the largest now in existence - that broke off from an Antarctic glacier and is heading into the open ocean. NASA glaciologist Kelly Brunt said on Wednesday the iceberg covers about 255 square miles (660 square km) and is up to a third of a mile (500 meters) thick. Known as B31, the iceberg separated from Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier last November, Brunt added. "It's one that's large enough that it warrants monitoring," Brunt said in a telephone interview, noting that U.S. government organizations including the National Ice Center keep an eye on dozens of icebergs at any given time.

Decision-making input linked to more satisfied cancer patients
By Allison Bond NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Regardless of whether cancer patients sought to be involved in decisions about their treatment, those who were ended up more satisfied with their care, according to a recent study. "Now more than ever, we are really paying attention to the role of the patient in his or her own healthcare, and we are trying to make this more of a partnership (between physician and patient)," said Neha Vapiwala, an author of the study and a radiation oncologist at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. The study, published in the journal Cancer, involved 305 patients at that hospital undergoing radiation therapy intended to cure their cancer. Participants had a wide variety of tumor types, including prostate, breast and lung cancer. -- read full article
