Afghan car bombing kills at least 12, including 3 AmericansKABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - A suicide car bomber attacked a NATO convoy traveling through a crowded neighborhood in Afghanistan's capital Saturday, killing at least 12 people, including three American civilian contractors for the international military force, authorities said. The Taliban quickly denied it was behind in the attack in Kabul's Macrorayan neighborhood, though the militants increasingly have been targeting Kabul in recent weeks and often don't claim attacks that maim large numbers of civilians.
PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) - The first high-level talks in nearly a year between South Korea and North Korea stretched into the early hours of Sunday, as the rivals looked to defuse mounting tensions that have pushed them to the brink of a possible military confrontation. The closed-door meeting in the border village of Panmunjom, where the armistice ending fighting in the Korean War was agreed to in 1953, began early Saturday evening, shortly after a deadline set by North Korea for the South to dismantle loudspeakers broadcasting anti-North Korean propaganda at their border. North Korea had declared that its front-line troops were in full war readiness and prepared to go to battle if Seoul did not back down.
GEVGELIJA, Macedonia (AP) - Thousands of rain-soaked migrants on Saturday rushed past Macedonian riot police who were attempting to block them from entering Macedonia from Greece. Police fired stun grenades and dozens of people were injured in the border clashes. By the end of the day, every one got across, including several hundred migrants, mostly elderly and children, who had remained on the Greek side of the border. Thousands then boarded trains and buses that took them up north to the border with Serbia from where they will attempt to enter European Union-member Hungary.
Congressman says NYC federal building gunman got 'raw deal'NEW YORK (AP) - A man who gunned down a security guard at a federal building in Manhattan before killing himself was a whistleblower who had been given "a raw deal" by the agency that fired him, a New Jersey congressman who took up the man's case said Saturday. Rep. Bill Pascrell said he did not know what made Kevin Downing, a military veteran who had once been employed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, open fire at the New York federal building on Friday.
Puerto Rico, USVI prepare for weakening Hurricane DannySAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - A weakening Hurricane Danny approached Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands on Saturday, but was expected to bring little relief to residents of the drought-stricken northern Caribbean. The Category 1 hurricane was located 635 miles (1,020 kilometers) east of the Leeward Islands Saturday afternoon, with maximum sustained winds of 85 mph (135 kph). It was traveling west-northwest at 12 mph (19 kph).
Man faces obscenity charge after O'Donnell's daughter foundTOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) - The owner of the home where Rosie O'Donnell's missing teen daughter was found earlier this week has been arrested for allegedly having inappropriate online communications with the 17-year-old girl, according to authorities and the star's spokeswoman. Steven Sheerer faces charges of child endangerment and distribution of obscenity to a minor, authorities said Saturday.
Legal showdown looms over the NCAA's ban on paying athletesATLANTA (AP) - Fresh off a ruling that Northwestern University football players can't form a union, the NCAA is about to face a more direct challenge to its longstanding policy of not letting schools pay athletes like they're professionals. A federal judge who issued a landmark decision against the NCAA last year is considering whether to grant class-action status to lawsuits by current and former college athletes seeking to abolish the NCAA's prohibition against competitively paying players. Taken together, the cases carry billion-dollar implications and hinge, essentially, on whether the concepts of amateur athleticism and economic competition can co-exist.

In the first visit by a British foreign secretary to Iran since 2003, Hammond will reopen embassy that was stormed by a mob four years ago
Britain’s embassy in Iran will reopen on Sunday in a sign of the diplomatic thaw between the two nations four years after the building was shut when it was stormed by violent protesters. Philip Hammond is flying to Tehran for a ceremony to mark the move in the first visit to the country by a British foreign secretary since 2003.
The UK has had no diplomatic presence in Tehran since a mob ransacked the British embassy in 2011 but the election of Hassan Rouhani as president brought about a significant improvement in relations.

ISIS Ambushes Kill Up to 50 Iraqi Troops 

1 Share
(BAGHDAD) — A top provincial official in Iraq’s Anbar province says up to 50 soldiers have been killed by Islamic State militants in two separate ambushes in the turbulent region west of Baghdad.
Sabah Al-Karhout, president of the Anbar Provincial Council, told The Associated Press on Saturday that the ambushes took place Friday west of the provincial capital, Ramadi.
He had no more details and there was no immediate word from authorities on the violence.
Defense Minister Khalid al-Obeidi on Saturday toured the army’s command in Anbar. During a meeting with troops there, a Defense Ministry statement said al-Obeidi counseled that forces must use “caution and precision” when advancing to avoid “unjustified losses.”
The Islamic State group controls about a third of Iraq, including much of Anbar.

At least 12 people were killed and 66 others wounded in a suicide attack in Afghanistan's capital Saturday, the spokesman for Kabul's police chief said. Three were US contractors.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid sent an email to media denying his group was responsible for the explosion.

Several people injured on second day of clashes as migrants en route to western Europe try to enter Macedonia from Greece
Thousands of migrants rushed past baton-wielding Macedonian police who were attempting to stop them entering Macedonia from Greece. Police fired stun grenades and several were injured in the clashes.
The conflict started when police decided to allow a small group of migrants with young children to cross the frontier. Then the crowds at the back squeezed them towards the wall of police. Several women and children fell to the ground apparently fainting after pushing past the cordon. Thousands of others, including women with babies and men carrying small children, used the moment to run across a field unprotected by barbed wire to enter Macedonia. Police fired stun grenades, but failed to stop the push.

In science we trust… up to a point 

1 Share
Eminent journals and peer-reviewed academic papers are supposed to convince us of scientific truth. Here’s why we should all be wary…
Science is emphatically not a belief system. It doesn’t require faith, and it works: civilisation is built on science working. But it’s a full-time job to keep on top of one subject, and impossible to stay up to date across a range of fields. We have to trust that the system works. But does it?
This is the process: scientists do the research – primarily paid for by you – which gets written up and peer-reviewed before publication as a paper in a journal. Getting published in a journal is not a mark of truth but that your research is credible enough to warrant entering the literature for ongoing scrutiny. Published papers are the benchmark of academic success, and the media’s main focus.

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? The rise of mind control

Mind control still sounds like the stuff of sci-fi movies. But it’s coming closer, with implants that can help people with paralysis and, further off, devices to send thoughts between humans
Ahundred electrodes are pressed tightly against my scalp and a mixture of salt water and baby shampoo is dripping down my back. The goings-on in my slightly agitated brain are represented by a baffling array of graphs on a screen in front of me. When I close my eyes and relax, the messy spikes and troughs become neat little waves.
Next, scientists here at Newcastle University’s Institute of Neuroscience induce small electric currents in different parts of my head, using a technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). If they fire the device a few millimetres to the left of my brain’s motor cortex, I feel nothing. Hit my “sweet spot”, however, and my arm moves of its own accord.
