A Ukrainian official said a Malaysian passenger plane carrying 295 people was shot down Thursday over a town in the east of the country. Anton Gerashenko, an adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister, said on his Facebook page the plane was flying at an altitude of 33,000 feet when it was hit by a missile fired from a Buk launcher. A similar launcher was seen by Associated Press journalists near the eastern Ukrainian town of Snizhne earlier Thursday.

Obama won´t read about this incident until tomorrow morning. Then the noon press conference (right before he gets on Marine 1 for the golf course) will contain the usual pablum about what a tough world we live in.

Huffington Post’s Donte Stallworth
on getting out of 9/11 ‘rabbit hole’
Washington Post, by Eric Wemple    Original Article
Posted By: SoCalGal- 9/7/2014 11:56:03 AM     Post Reply
Donte Stallworth, the former NFL player hired to a fellowship at the Huffington Post, says that journalists Jeremy Scahill and Glenn Greenwald “catapulted” his interest in national security reporting. (Snip) As for Stallworth’s experience in writing stories, he cited two pieces that he’d done for the lefty website Think Progress — one on Michael Sam and NFL “distractions” and another on Robert Griffin III. According to Stallworth, that’s the extent of his published archive. But that doesn’t include Twitter, of course, a platform on which Stallworth has been prolific — perhaps too prolific. As detractors are now busy pointing out,

DOHA: Qatar has confirmed it is holding two British researchers who had been probing the labor conditions of migrants building facilities for the 2022 World Cup, saying they "violated" the emirate´s laws. Krishna Upadhyaya and Ghimire Gundev, who work for the Norway-based Global Network for Rights and Development, were arrested in Doha on August 31. The Qatari Foreign Ministry said in a statement the pair were "being interrogated for having violated provisions of the law" in Qatar, but it did not elaborate.

Explosions were heard in Ukraine’s port city of Mariupol as the government and pro-Russian separatists tried to hold onto a truce accord intended to stem months of bloodshed. No casualties have been reported in the past 24 hours, military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said in televised remarks in the capital Kiev yesterday, the first time that’s happened since the insurgents unleashed a counteroffensive last month. Presidents Petro Poroshenko and Vladimir Putin spoke by phone on the progress of the truce, agreeing that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe should monitor the accord, according to the Ukrainian leader’s website.

Although few medical experts realize it, part of the population in West Africa is immune to the Ebola virus, according to virologists who specialize in the disease. Assuming they are correct, and if those people can be identified, they could be a great help in fighting the outbreak. Immune persons could safely tend the sick and bury the dead just as smallpox survivors did in the centuries before smallpox vaccine. Also, antibodies could be harvested from their blood to treat new Ebola victims. But many factors remain unclear, including which Africans have antibodies and how much antibody is needed to be protective. The

The parents of a boy with a brain tumour have said they removed their son from a UK hospital because he had not been offered proton beam therapy. In a video posted on YouTube, Brett and Naghemeh King said they had "pleaded" with staff at Southampton General Hospital for their five-year-old son Ashya to be given it. The technology is currently only available in the UK to treat eye cancers, but patients with other forms of cancer can apply for NHS funding for therapy abroad. So what is proton beam therapy?

Hong Kong: Underlining the potential for escalating confrontation, Hong Kong pro-democracy groups have vowed to ensure the city enters an "era of civil disobedience" in protest against proposed voting reforms imposed by the Chinese government. Braving stop-start rain under a gleaming Hong Kong skyline, thousands of demonstrators flocked to a rally organised by pro-democracy group Occupy Central outside the offices of the Legislative Council on Sunday night, where they were urged to stage mass sit-ins to cripple the city´s financial district. It came just hours after Beijing said it would deny voters the right to publicly nominate candidates for the

Researchers unveiled a breakthrough imaging technique Thursday that show what blood flow in the brain looks like on cocaine. For the first time, researchers have been able to prove “cocaine induced microischemia,” a precursor to stroke that arises when blood flow shuts down. The experiment was conducted on mice via cocaine injections. The results were published in the journal Biomedical Optics Express. The method means that we can finally see tiny vessels called capillaries, which form the brain’s circulation network. (Snip) We know that cocaine can cause “aneurysm-like bleeding and strokes,” but the exact mechanism that leads

When we first began digging in to the Mike Brown story something odd was immediately identifiable. The individual witness statements, when compared over time, were case studies in the evolution of self-contradiction. But why ? It’s generally a true statement that eye witnesses testimonials can often be unreliable; but the statements of the people hitting the New York media circuit were beyond unreliable – they were contradicting themselves from show to show, often within hours. A little research into the shooting aftermath and things begin to fall into place.The primary witnesses used to create what we’ll call ‘the media narrative’

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said new allegations that U.S. commandos were ordered to “stand down” during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, aren’t supported by findings from House and Senate investigators. Five commandos who survived the Benghazi attack, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, made the allegation in a new book, accusing the CIA station chief of delaying a rescue mission. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) said lawmakers never came across evidence indicating the station chief had told his team to “stand down” and abort a

Immigrant-rights groups reacted furiously Saturday after the White House made clear President Obama will not take unilateral action on immigration before November’s elections, nodding at the political realities of the issue as he punted on the key policy questions. With a number of key Senate races in GOP-leaning states, Democrats had feared that action now would anger voters and cost them control of the upper chamber, and had privately begged the White House to hold off on any move to halt deportations. But immigration activists said it’s the latest in a series of moves by Mr. Obama to shove their

There is reportedly better than a 50-50 chance that former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will run for president. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Bush´s inner circle of "advisers have been quietly spreading the word that they should avoid committing to other possible presidential candidates until he decides on his own course after the November election" and have been actively dismissing "speculation that the former Florida governor has ruled out a 2016 run."

Millions of families were falling underwater on their homes and threatened with foreclosure. The iconic American automobile industry was under siege.
