An Ebola information billboard is displayed near the John F Kennedy Memorial Medical Centre in Monrovia, on August 19, 2014 Violence erupted in an Ebola quarantine zone in Liberia's capital Wednesday when soldiers opened fire and used tear gas on protesting crowds as they evacuated a state official and her family. Four residents were injured in the clashes that flared in Monrovia's West Point slum which has been sealed off as part of new security measures aimed at containing the deadly virus. The crackdown in Liberia comes as authorities around the world scramble to stem the worst-ever outbreak of Ebola, which has killed at least 1,350 people across west Africa this year.

Djokovic still favorite for U.S. Open, says McEnroe

Tennis: Western and Southern Open-Djokovic vs Simon (Reuters) - Roger Federer is the form player going into next week's U.S. Open but Novak Djokovic is favorite to win the title for a second time, according to former champion John McEnroe. Federer, who reigned supreme at Flushing Meadows with five consecutive titles from 2004, won the Cincinnati title last week on the back of reaching the final in Toronto and with world No.2 Rafa Nadal injured, many believe the 33-year-old Swiss maestro can claim an 18th grand slam title. "Obviously not having to deal with (Nadal) is a huge positive for him potentially down the road if he's at a stage at the end of the event," McEnroe said in a conference call with TV channel ESPN for whom he will be working as a commentator during the year's final grand slam.

Israeli air strikes kill senior Hamas commanders in Gaza

Palestinian emergency personnel dig through the rubble of a building destroyed in an Israeli military strike in Rafah, southern Gaza on August 21, 2014 Israeli warplanes killed three top Hamas commanders in southern Gaza on Thursday, inflicting a heavy blow on the movement's armed wing after failing to kill its top military chief.

The Brigades said the three were "senior commanders," identifying them as Mohammed Abu Shamala, Raed al-Atar and Mohammed Barhum, vowing to make Israel pay.

30 Percent of ‘Retirees’ Would Return to Labor Force

30 Percent of ‘Retirees’ Would Return to Labor Force Conducted by Reuters-Ipsos, the survey  asked 7,727 adults about their employment status and their intentions with regard to future work. This is part of the puzzle that Federal Reserve Board Chair  Janet Yellen and her colleagues will be pondering later this week at their annual gathering in Jackson Hole, WY. The theme of the meeting is “Re-evaluating Labor Market Dynamics.”  After supplying huge amounts of liquidity to the economy during the Great Recession, the Fed is now cutting back on its purchases of securities, and it is at least beginning to consider when it will start pushing interest rates above the near-zero level where they have been for the past few years.

EU regulators seek to close car emissions testing loopholes

A customer fills-up his car with diesel at a gas station in Nice By Barbara Lewis BRUSSELS (Reuters) - EU regulators are preparing draft legislation that will require vehicle fuel use to be tested on roads rather than in laboratories, looking to close loopholes that allow car makers to exaggerate fuel-saving and emissions credentials. European Commission research published last year showed that lab techniques, such as taping up car doors and windows and driving on an unrealistically smooth surface, explained around a third of a recorded drop in average EU emissions of planet-warming carbon dioxide (CO2), linked to reduced fuel consumption. This would need to be endorsed by EU member states. The Commission, the EU executive, says nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions, linked to lung disease and hundreds of thousands of early deaths, have been miscalculated to a still-greater extent than CO2 levels.

US reveals failed hostage rescue operation in Syria

An image made available by the jihadist Twitter account Al-Baraka news on June 9, 2014 allegedly shows Islamic State (IS) militants on the Syria-Iraq border The United States said Wednesday that its special forces tried this summer to rescue American hostages held by Islamist militants in Syria. News reports quoting government officials said Wednesday the captives included James Foley, the American journalist whose graphic execution by an Islamic State (IS) jihadist was revealed in a video Tuesday.

Dollar General questions motives of Family Dollar CEO

A price sign at a Dollar General store in Arvada, Colorado (Reuters) - Dollar General Corp questioned whether Family Dollar Stores Inc Chief Executive Howard Levine was being driven by self-interest in his support of a proposed takeover of his company by Dollar Tree Inc .

"Had we left the meeting with the belief that a sale of Family Dollar was imminent, we assure you that our course of action would have been different."

How Toxic Fumes on Airplanes Can Impact Your Health

How Toxic Fumes on Airplanes Can Impact Your Health After more than 50 years of knowing that the air you breathe on an airplane can be contaminated with hazardous oil fumes, only one type of aircraft, the Boeing 787, has been designed to provide clean air to passengers and crews.  “You could be exposed to oil fumes on a flight tomorrow,” said Judith Anderson, a staff member of the AFA-CWA Air Safety, Health and Security Department, which aims to improve conditions that affect the health of flight attendants. For over 50 years, all commercial jet aircraft have supplied passengers and crews with unfiltered breathing air taken directly from the compression section of the engine, using a process known as “bleed air,” according to a new report released this week by the Global Cabin Air Quality Executive, a coalition of health and safety advocates focused on poor air quality in aircraft. The Boeing 787, which made its debut two years ago, is at this point the only commercial bleed-free aircraft in operation.

China taps South Korea for ideas in Qualcomm antitrust case

A man walks past a Qualcomm advertising logo at the Mobile World Congress at Barcelona Qualcomm is one of at least thirty foreign firms to come under scrutiny as China seeks to enforce a 2008 anti-monopoly law - efforts some critics say have unfairly targeted overseas businesses, raising protectionism concerns. The Korea Fair Trade Commission (KFTC) fined San Diego-based Qualcomm more than $200 million in 2009 for abusing its dominant market position, but the stakes are bigger in China, where an investigation by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) could trigger changes to Qualcomm's licensing deals and fines of as much as a tenth of a company's annual revenue.

Rescuers comb through devastation of Japan landslide

Self Defense Force soldiers and police officers search for missing people on August 21, 2014, one day after a landslide hit a residential area in Hiroshima, western Japan Thousands of rescuers combed through the wreckage of homes engulfed by landslides in western Japan on Thursday in the slim hope of finding survivors, a day after a wall of mud claimed at least 39 lives.
