Samples collected from oil slick not from plane

A Royal Malaysian Air Force C-130H Hercules aircraft takes off from Pearce Airbase, north of Perth, Australia to help in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Thursday, April 17, 2014.

(AP Photo/Greg Wood, Pool)PERTH, Australia (AP) — Investigators were analyzing data collected by a robotic submarine that completed its first successful scan of the seabed Thursday in the hunt for the missing Malaysian plane, but say tests have ruled out that a nearby oil slick came from the aircraft.

US readies sanctions, demands concessions from Russia

Pro-Russian activists block a collumn of Ukrainian men riding on Armoured Personnel Carriers in the eastern Ukrainian city of Kramatorsk on April 16, 2014The United States warned Wednesday it was "actively preparing" new sanctions to hit Russia if critical Ukraine talks do not produce concessions from Moscow. US officials privately signaled they had little hope that the Geneva talks between Russia, Ukraine, the European Union and Washington would make significant progress. They also revealed that the toughest available sanctions -- those targeting key sectors of the Russian economy -- would only come into force in the event of a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.

New report sheds light on why Hulu is an absolute mess

New report sheds light on why Hulu is an absolute messIs Hulu even trying to compete with Netflix anymore? There are days when you really have to wonder. While Netflix is offering up a barrage of critically acclaimed exclusive series such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, Hulu is offering up… well, pretty much nothing that people are getting excited about. The Information has come out with a new report claiming that Hulu has just cancelled a major project that Hulu executives had hoped would be its answer to House of Cards, the hugely successful drama starring Kevin Spacey that has helped Netflix boost its subscription numbers. The project was apparently based on material written by author Dennis Lehane, whose books have spawned several hit movies

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank in the NFL NFC Championship football game in AtlantaBy David Beasley ATLANTA (Reuters) - Atlanta has landed a Major League Soccer expansion team that will play beginning in 2017 in the city's new open-air stadium downtown, officials announced on Wednesday. Arthur Blank, owner of the National Football League's Atlanta Falcons team and a co-founder of Home Depot Inc. purchased the new franchise, which will be the league's 22nd team, he told reporters. "This is an exciting day for Atlanta," Blank said. It's been a dream of ours."

Players Championship adopts three-hole playoff

View of The Players Championship on May 12, 2013 in Ponte Vedra Beach, FloridaPonte Vedra Beach (United States) (AFP) - The Players Championship is abandoning its sudden-death playoff and switching to a three-hole aggregate playoff in a move that further separates the elite event from other US PGA Tour stops. The plan will go into effect for this year's tournament at TPC Sawgrass in May. Should the final round come down to a playoff, it will take place at holes 16, 17 and 18. "Holes 16, 17 and 18 of The Players Stadium Course are perhaps the most dramatic closing holes in professional golf from a risk-reward standpoint, as they test all facets of a player's physical and mental game while under the pressure of trying to win such a significant championship," PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said in a statement on Wednesday. "Given the fact that winning The Players means you have defeated the strongest field in golf, we felt an aggregate playoff that incorporated these three holes was a more appropriate way to determine the champion."

NASA Wants Ideas to Recycle Precious Oxygen on Deep-Space Voyages

NASA Wants Ideas to Recycle Precious Oxygen on Deep-Space VoyagesWhen humans leave Earth to explore planets like Mars and other hostile environments in outer space, they'll need to supply their own breathable oxygen. But as Michael Gazarik, associate administrator of NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate, says, "You just can't bring all the air with you." In a call with reporters Wednesday (April 16), Gazarik said the ability to recycle oxygen will be critical for future manned missions. NASA already has systems in place on the International Space Station to recycle around 40 percent of the astronauts' air supply, Gazarik said, but NASA is looking for new technology that can increase the oxygen recovery rate to at least 75 percent.

National event urges Americans to plan for the end

Snow accumulates on gravestones of the Trinity Church in New YorkNational Health Care Decisions Day, marked on this date for the seventh year, is one in which patients and health providers are encouraged to think about their own end-of-life preferences. The man behind it, health care attorney Nathan Kottkamp, says such considerations have never been more critical. "It's a broken record issue," said Kottkamp, a member of multiple hospital ethics committees. "Ninety percent of ethics consults I have been involved in deal with end-of-life decisions without advance directives." Those conflicts led to his founding of National Health Care Decisions Day, intended to educate the public about advance care planning.
