PERTH, Australia (AP) — Three weeks into the mystery of Flight 370, investigators relying on newly analyzed satellite data shifted the search zone yet again, focusing on a swath of Indian Ocean where better conditions could help speed a hunt that is now concentrated thousands of miles from where it began.
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Colorado needs to strengthen efforts to combat wildfires to prevent future destructive blazes but need not create its own state-run aerial fleet of water-dropping planes, a firefighting agency recommended on Friday. The agency‘s director, Paul Cooke, said in a statement that firefighting efforts should focus on early detection and suppression before blazes rage out of control. A series of wildfires burned almost 250,000 acres and killed six people in Colorado in 2012, making it the state's worst wildfire season on record. Last year, the state's single most destructive wildfire destroyed nearly 500 homes and killed two people on the outskirts of Colorado Springs.
