Monkeys infected by deadly bacteria at Louisiana lab

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/05/2015 - 07:34
(Reuters) - Five monkeys at a high-security primate research lab in Louisiana were accidentally infected with or exposed to a deadly bacteria being analyzed at the lab, officials told Reuters on Wednesday. A federal investigator also became sick a day after entering the Tulane National Primate Research Center near New Orleans in January and tested positive for the bacteria, Burkholderia pseudomallei, but it was unclear whether she had been exposed to the bacteria at the center or before her visit, said Tulane spokesman Mike Strecker. The rhesus macaque monkeys had been housed in the veterinary clinic of the center, which is about 40 miles (65 km) north of New Orleans. Research on the bacteria, which was being done to find a vaccine, has been halted while the incident is being investigated, Strecker said.

Passengers, crew evacuate safely from American Airlines flight in Denver

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/05/2015 - 07:33
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Passengers and crew aboard an American Airlines flight were safely evacuated by emergency slides on Wednesday after possible smoke was detected inside the cabin after the aircraft landed at Denver International Airport, officials said. Shortly before noon local time, the pilot of Flight 445 from Charlotte, North Carolina to Denver was alerted to reports of smoke as the plane was taxiing to a gate, American Airlines spokeswoman Andrea Huguely said in a statement. Denver International Airport spokeswoman Laura Coale said the incident occurred on a taxiway, and not a runway, so airport operations were unaffected. The Denver Fire Department found no signs of a fire on the aircraft after its preliminary investigation, Coale said.

Utah lawmakers file anti-bias bill, with backing of Mormon Church

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/05/2015 - 07:32
Lawmakers in conservative Utah on Wednesday introduced a landmark anti-discrimination bill, with the backing of the Mormon Church, that they said would prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation while also protecting religious freedom. The proposal, which supporters hailed as a model for the rest of the country, would prohibit employers, landlords or property owners from discriminating against job applicants or tenants based on their gender identity or sexual orientation. The Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints supports the bill. At the same time, religious conscience and the right to protect deeply held religious beliefs is protected by robust legislation." While none of the parties got everything they wanted, the Church said, there was now a chance "to lessen the divisiveness in our communities without compromising on key principles." The bill proposes adding sexual orientation and gender identity clauses to the state's existing anti-discrimination laws for housing and employment, which already prohibit bias on the grounds of race, sex, age and other factors.
