SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday struck down gay marriage bans in Idaho and Nevada, saying they were unconstitutional a day after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to address the issue. The unanimous decision from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco follows rulings from other appeals courts which have similarly authorized gay marriage. The Supreme Court this week had rejected appeals without comment in cases involving five states - Virginia, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin and Indiana - that had prohibited gay marriage. ...

Australians to help look for historic ship in US

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 10/08/2014 - 04:34

This 2007 photo provided by the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney shows a modern replica of the HMB Endeavour at sail. The original vessel was commanded by Capt. James Cook in the 1700's when he became the first European to chart Australia’s East Coast. It was among a fleet of 13 ships sunk as a blockade in Rhode Island's Newport Harbor during the Revolutionary War in 1778. An archaeologist, working for years to locate the wreck, is receiving help in October 2014 from the Australian National Maritime Museum, which is hoping to find the ship’s remains before their country's 250th anniversary celebrations of Cook’s voyage in 2020. (AP Photo/Australian National Maritime Museum)PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Nearly 250 years ago, Capt. James Cook ran aground on Australia's Great Barrier Reef during a voyage to the South Pacific to observe the planet Venus. His ship was the Endeavour, an ugly and awkward little vessel that improbably helped him become the first European to chart Australia's east coast.
