Former allies sue Mugabe and ZANU-PF party for breaching rules

Mugabe holds a booklet during his 91st birthday celebration in Victoria FallsTwo former allies of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe whom he fired last year are suing the 91-year-old leader and his ZANU-PF party for unfair dismissal and for breaching the party's constitution, court papers seen by Reuters showed. Mugabe, who has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in 1980, changed the party's constitution ahead of ZANU-PF's December congress to allow him to appoint his two deputies himself rather than having them elected by the party. Rugare Gumbo, once the ZANU-PF spokesman, and Didymus Mutasa, the party's former secretary general, say in their lawsuit, which also targets a former party chairman, that these changes were illegal. The lawsuit, filed at Zimbabwe's High Court, also says Mugabe breached the law by removing a provision requiring one of the deputies to be a woman and by appointing his wife Grace to lead the ZANU-PF women's wing.

Russia's Putin calls Nemtsov's murder political
By Denis Pinchuk MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that the murder of Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov was a shameful tragedy that carried a political subtext. Nemtsov, a former deputy prime minister, was shot dead as he walked with his girlfriend on Friday night near Red Square. He was the most prominent opposition figure to be killed in Russia during Putin's 15-year rule. The Kremlin has denied any involvement, saying that the killing was a "provocation" designed to discredit Putin and strengthen his opponents, but Nemtsov's friends say the Kremlin is to blame for fomenting an atmosphere of hatred towards its opponents. -- read full article

UK bans ad for implying Old Jerusalem part of Israel

The Dome of the Rock (R) and al-Aqsa mosque, both in the al-Aqsa mosque compound, are seen in the walled Old City of Jerusalem on April 16, 2014Britain's advertising watchdog banned an Israeli government tourism advert for suggesting that the Old City of Jerusalem was part of Israel on Wednesday. The newspaper brochure showed a panorama of the walled Old City with the text "Israel has it all", and was ruled misleading by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), which said it implied the UNESCO World Heritage Site was part of Israel. The international community regards the Old City as occupied Palestinian territory, while Israel has claimed it as part of its capital. Following a complaint, the ASA ruled the title of the brochure "Israel Land of Creation" and references to Old City attractions was misleading and banned the advert from appearing again in its current form.

Kerry, Iran FM in new nuclear talks

Iran denies it is trying to produce atomic weapons and insists the Bushehr reactor and its other nuclear facilities are purely for peaceful energy needsThe US and Iran ignored a passionate plea from the Israeli prime minister to ditch their nuclear negotiations and held a third straight day of talks Wednesday seeking a framework deal in a few weeks. US Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif were back at the negotiating table in the Swiss lakeside town of Montreux, and met for more than three hours Wednesday as a March 31 deadline for agreement on reining in Iran's suspect nuclear programme looms. In a dramatic speech to the US Congress on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the US administration to halt the talks which he warned "doesn't block Iran's path to the bomb. Israel itself is understood to have nuclear weapons but has never officially admitted to having such an arsenal.

UK scientists work out weight of Sophie the Stegosaurus

This undated handout photo issued by the Natural History Museum, shows an artist's impression of how Sophie, the world's most complete Stegosaurus skeleton, may have looked. Scientists at a British museum have worked out the weight of Sophie, one of the world’s most complete Stegosaurus skeletons, it was reported on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. London’s Natural History Museum says Sophie, a young adult when it died, weighed around 1.6 tons and was about the same size as a small rhinoceros. The scientists worked out the dinosaur's body mass after creating a 3D digital version of its skeleton, calculating the volume of flesh around the bones, and comparing the data with information from similar-sized modern animals. (AP Photo/PA, Bob Nicholls/Natural History Museum)LONDON (AP) — Scientists at a British museum have worked out the weight of Sophie, one of the world's most complete Stegosaurus skeletons.

Cyborg Roaches Could Be Used to Find Disaster Survivors

Cyborg Roaches Could Be Used to Find Disaster SurvivorsFleets of cyborg cockroaches could someday roam into damaged nuclear power plants or collapsed mines to carry out reconnaissance or locate survivors. A team of researchers implanted live cockroaches with electrodes that stimulate the nerves in the insects' antennae, enabling the scientists to steer the creatures around like remote-controlled toys. While people may normally think of cockroaches as pests that live on human waste, these insects are better than any small-scale robots that exist today, said Hong Liang, a materials scientist at Texas A&M University in College Station, and co-author of the study published online today (March 4) in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface.

Officials urge testing as Portland, Oregon sees rise in syphilis cases
By Courtney Sherwood PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - A spike in syphilis cases in Portland in the past three years has prompted concerned public health officials to urge more sexually active adults to get tested regularly for the treatable bacterial infection. The Portland metro area has seen about 240 new cases of the disease on average each year since 2012, many times more than the 10 to 30 cases that were detected annually before that. Across the country, incidences of syphilis are on the rise. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last year the number of infections in the United States climbed by more than 10 percent in 2013 to 17,535 cases, compared with the previous year. -- read full article
