(AP Photo/Kentucky BioProcessing)WASHINGTON (AP) — The use of an experimental drug to treat two Americans diagnosed with Ebola is raising ethical questions about who gets first access to unproven new therapies for the deadly disease. But some health experts fear debate over extremely limited doses will distract from tried-and-true measures to curb the growing outbreak — things like more rapidly identifying and isolating the sick.


Arizona couple settles lawsuit with polygamous church-run towns

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 06:48
By Jennifer Dobner SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) - A couple who successfully sued a pair of polygamous church-run towns on the Utah-Arizona border for religious discrimination has settled the lawsuit out of court, an attorney for the towns said on Wednesday. Ron and Jinjer Cooke sued Hildale in Utah and Colorado City, Arizona, in 2010, claiming they were unfairly denied access to clean water and other utilities because they were not members of the Warren Jeffs-led Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS). The twin towns are home to the majority of the followers of the incarcerated Jeffs, and FLDS members control most aspects of city government. A jury sided with the Cookes in March, awarding them a $5.2 million judgment.  On Tuesday, a federal judge in Phoenix dismissed all pending claims between the parties, said Jeff Matura, an attorney who represents Colorado City.

U.S. appeals court conflicted over gay marriages cases

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 06:45

A couple embraces on the Pennsylvania State Capital steps following a rally with gay rights supporters in HarrisburgBy Lawrence Hurley CINCINNATI Ohio (Reuters) - In a sign that gay-marriage rights could lose momentum in U.S. courts, the three judges on a federal appeals court in Cincinnati appeared divided on Wednesday when they weighed cases from four states. Since a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June 2013, more than 20 courts in succession have ruled in favor of gay marriage. Based on the oral arguments that took place on Wednesday, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals may not follow suit. The court's consideration of the issue comes at a crucial stage in the legal fight over gay marriage.

Reward offered for man shown kicking squirrel into Grand Canyon

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 06:44
An animal rights group offered a reward of nearly $17,000 on Wednesday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a man who apparently kicked a squirrel into Arizona's Grand Canyon in a video that went viral on the Internet. Appealing to members of the public to help catch the "heartless thug," the UK branch of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) urged anyone with details about the "infamous" case to contact the Grand Canyon's chief ranger. In the video, a shirtless man is seen apparently feeding the squirrel before booting it off the edge of a cliff and into the crimson-hued canyon. Park rangers have been investigating since they were alerted to the existence of the video earlier this week, and they believe it was filmed within Grand Canyon National Park.

Drone crashes into famed hot spring at Yellowstone National Park

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 06:43
A tourist seeking to take pictures of Yellowstone National Park crashed a camera-equipped drone into its largest hot spring, possibly damaging the prized geothermal feature, a park official said on Wednesday. The incident follows the crash earlier this summer of a drone into a marina at Yellowstone Lake and a string of radio-controlled aircraft violations at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. The National Park Service in June announced a ban on so-called unmanned aerial vehicles, but officials say premier national parks in the U.S. West are reporting a sharp rise in the number of drones buzzing bison and boaters. It was not clear if the drone that crashed Grand Prismatic Spring on Saturday and sank into its depths would damage the geothermal feature, park spokesman Al Nash said, and officials were still trying to decide whether to remove it.

Obama says lacks sufficient data to fast-track Ebola drug

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 06:42

U.S. President Barack Obama delivers remarks at the first Leaders Session of the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit at the State Department in WashingtonPresident Barack Obama said on Wednesday he lacks enough information to green-light a promising drug to treat the deadly Ebola virus and that the initial response should focus on public health measures to contain the outbreak. "The Ebola virus both currently and in the past is controllable if you have a strong public health infrastructure in place." Public health officials should do all they can to contain the outbreak, and during the course of that process, authorities can assess whether new drugs or treatments can be effective, he said.
