College presidents say no to unions for athletes

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 07:15

FILE - In this April 25, 2014, file photo, Northwestern football players walk between their locker room and McGaw Hall, where voting is taking place on the student athlete union question in Evanston, Ill. A national organization representing college and university presidents is disputing a federal ruling that students who receive college athletic scholarships are essentially employees of their schools and thus entitled to join unions and exercise collective-bargaining rights. Student-athletes participate for their own benefit; they do not render services for compensation, said the 1,800 member American Council on Education. Ahead of a midnight deadline, the council filed a 30-page friend-of-the court brief taking strong issue with the ruling earlier this year by a National Labor Relations Board regional director that allows college athletes at Northwestern University to unionize.(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — Northwestern University on Thursday urged the National Labor Relations Board to overturn a regional ruling that would allow its scholarship football players to unionize, holding up the football program as exemplifying the university's integration of athletics and education.

Dead South Carolina teen's family skeptical of police suicide probe

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 07:06
By Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON S.C. (Reuters) - Civil rights advocates and the family of a 19-year-old former Army recruit fatally shot during a June 20 encounter with a South Carolina police officer are questioning the claim by law enforcement that his death appears to have been a suicide. The officer is on paid leave as the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division investigates the shooting of Denzel Curnell in Charleston, who died after a gunshot wound in the head. They described the case as a "possible suicide," saying there was no evidence that the officer, Jamal Medlin, fired a weapon. They are pushing for the release of footage from surveillance cameras that might have recorded the incident at an apartment complex and for the coroner's report, said Charleston attorney Andrew Savage, who is representing Curnell's family.

Phones, shoes to face scrutiny as airport security tightened: U.S.

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 07:05

Police officers patrol at a security gate inside the main terminal of Frankfurt AirportBy Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Airlines with direct flights to the United States have been told to tighten screening of mobile phones and shoes in response to intelligence reports of increased threats from al Qaeda-affiliated militant groups, U.S. officials said on Thursday. The officials singled out smartphones including iPhones made by Apple Inc and Galaxy phones made by Samsung Electronics Co Ltd for extra security checks on U.S.-bound direct flights from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. U.S. security officials said they fear bombmakers from the Yemen-based al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) have figured out how to turn the phones into explosive devices that can avoid detection. Airlines or airport operators that fail to strengthen security could face bans on flights entering the United States, the officials said.
