Southwest to add flights from Reagan National Airport

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 00:51

A Southwest Airlines jet waits on the tarmac at Denver International Airport in Denver(Reuters) - Southwest Airlines Co will more than double its flights from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport this year with new nonstop routes to cities including Akron-Canton, Ohio; Indianapolis and Dallas Love Field, it said on Monday. The Dallas-based carrier is adding the flights after it bought takeoff and landing rights that formerly belonged to American Airlines Group at the airport near Washington. In addition to the new routes, Southwest plans to use the slots it acquired to add nonstop flights between Reagan National and Chicago Midway, Houston Hobby, St. Louis and other U.S. airports it serves.


Anti-fracking activist in court, fights ban from Pennsylvania land

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 00:49
By David DeKok MONTROSE, Pennsylvania (Reuters) - A Pennsylvania judge could rule as early as this week on whether to modify his five-month-old injunction banning an anti-fracking activist from approaching lands leased by a Texas-based natural gas producer that effectively prohibits her from visiting the local hospital or grocery store. Judge Kenneth Seamans suggested at a hearing on Monday in the Susquehanna County Court of Common Pleas that he was not inclined to lift the injunction against Vera Scroggins, 63, of Brackney, Pennsylvania, but he was skeptical about the 150-foot (46-meter) exclusion zone from active drilling sites and access roads requested by Cabot Oil & Gas Co. "What is the significance of 150 feet?" Seamans asked. Cabot leases about 40 percent of the land in Susquehanna County, where Scroggins lives, and the broad scope of the company's holding, coupled with the exclusion zone, made much of the county along Pennsylvania's northern border off-limits to her.

(AP Photo/Elizabeth Williams)NEW YORK (AP) — Osama bin Laden's son-in-law was recruited in Afghanistan to be al-Qaida's spokesman after the Sept. 11 attacks and spread a message of hate against America that would incite more would-be Muslim militants to join its cause, a prosecutor said Monday in closing arguments at the son-in-law's terrorism trial.

Boston Marathon bombing response a world model, governor says

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 00:35
Boston's handling of the bombing attack on its marathon in April has become a model for cities around the world on how to respond to tragedy, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick said on Monday, as the city made its final preparations for this year's race. "The chaos of those moments is hard to describe," Patrick said of the minutes after two pressure-cooker bombs exploded at the finish line of the world-famous Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, killing three people and injuring more than 260. "That example of grace had an awful lot to do with why the world looks to Boston and the Commonwealth as an example of how to come back from a terrible tragedy like this," Patrick told a conference organized by Boston University about lessons from the bombing. Investigators say a pair of Chechen brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, placed the homemade bombs at the marathon finish line, in the largest mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil since hijackers flew planes into New York City's World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

New York's 9/11 museum to open to the public on May 21

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 00:32
Nearly 13 years after the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, a museum dedicated to the nearly 3,000 killed will open on May 21 where the World Trade Center once stood, officials said Monday. "September 11 is a day that profoundly changed New York and the nation," New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said in a statement. "The Memorial Museum will bring New Yorkers together in the same spirit of unity we showed after this senseless act of terror." The opening of the National September 11 Memorial Museum has been repeatedly delayed by funding disputes, construction problems and damage from 2012's Superstorm Sandy. In the attacks, members of al Qaeda hijacked four airliners and crashed three of them into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
