Detroit police may seek charges in case of boy found in basement

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 06/28/2014 - 06:55
Detroit police said on Friday they are pursuing possible charges in the case of a 12-year-old boy reported missing for 11 days before being found alive in his family's basement as local authorities and federal agents continued their investigation. Charlie Bothuell V was reported missing on June 14, triggering search efforts. He was discovered on Wednesday as police looked for evidence on his disappearance, finding the boy in the basement of a townhouse east of Detroit that he shared with his father, stepmother and two younger siblings. No one has been charged in the case, but Detroit Police Sergeant Michael Woody told local media that charges were possible.

Wrong Miss Florida crowned in voting mix-up

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 06/28/2014 - 06:54
By Letitia Stein TAMPA Fla. (Reuters) - Just a week after her coronation, the winner of the 2014 Miss Florida pageant was dethroned on Friday when organizers said they had crowned the wrong woman after a vote-count error. Elizabeth Fechtel, a 20-year-old student at the University of Florida, won this year's pageant in front of nearly 2,000 spectators last Saturday in St. Petersburg, Florida. The true Miss Florida contest winner was Victoria Cowen, a 21-year-old student at Florida State University. After the Florida mix-up came to light this week, pageant organizers sought an independent review, said Mary Sullivan, executive director of the Miss Florida pageant.

Somali expats fear bank curbs on sending money home

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 06/28/2014 - 06:44

Hussein stands at the counter of his money transfer business Mustaqbal Express in MinneapolisBy Mirjam Donath NEW YORK (Reuters) - Each month, 42-year-old Abdirizak Alibos shows up at a money transfer business in the heart of Minneapolis to send $500 to his three children in war-torn Somalia. It is not money that they are about to run out of but the legal options for sending it home.   About 40 percent of all Somali families rely on remittances from another country, and the estimated annual total of $1.3 billion is more than all foreign aid and investment in Somalia combined, according to a study published last year by human aid organizations Adeso, Oxfam and the Inter-American Dialogue.   For more than two decades, the African nation of 10 million people has been a land of chaos because of divisive clan fights during its civil war and more-recent Islamist militant insurgents with links to al Qaeda. Commercial banking disappeared in the early 1990s, and Western money transfer companies such as Western Union Co and MoneyGram International Inc do not serve most parts of Somalia.


U.S. soy supply seen at 37-year low, plantings hit record

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 06/28/2014 - 06:42
The U.S. Agriculture Department's (USDA) annual acreage and quarterly grain stocks reports, scheduled for release at 11:00 a.m. CDT (1600 GMT), will offer clues into how the government will update its supply and demand forecasts in mid-July. Much market attention is focused on June 1 soybean stocks, with some analysts suggesting supplies are more abundant than initial USDA forecasts. "Neither the futures market nor the cash market seems to be in a supply-panic mode so you have to assume that somewhere there must be more supplies," said Anne Frick, senior oilseeds analyst with Jefferies Bache in New York.
