Household air pollution, caused by the use of plant-based or coal fuel for cooking, heating, and lighting, is putting nearly three billion people worldwide at risk of ill health and early death, according to a new Commission, published in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine journal.
E-mail services are either more convenient for patients and make better use of clinicians' time, or make more work for already hard pressed health-care professionals and threaten patient safety, argue two doctors in a Head to Head published on thebmj.com today.
|American Mahan seeking Ryder Cup redemption for 2010 - Yahoo Sports 1 hour ago|
Federer breezes past Bautista Agut, reaches US Open quarterfinals - CBS Sports 1 hour ago
The three American Ryder Cup wildcard picks will all be seeking redemption when they travel to Scotland later this month, and none more so than Hunter Mahan. The 32-year-old lost the singles match to Graeme McDowell that clinched the Ryder Cup for Europe in Wales in 2010 - a loss made more painful because Mahan duffed a chip shot at the 17th hole that effectively sealed his fate. "I remember walking off that green and all the fans rushing on to Europe and Graeme and having a big party," Mahan said after being announced by captain Tom Watson as a wildcard selection on Tuesday. I want to get rid of that." Mahan has already been on a winning Ryder Cup team, in 2008, but remembers the 2010 experience more vividly.

Brent can return to Cowboys after 10-game ban - Yahoo Sports 1 hour ago
Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker was suspended four games by the National Football League for violating the NFL performance-enhancing drug policy, a major setback for a Super Bowl squad. Welker caught 73 passes for 778 yards and 10 touchdowns last year in his first season with the Broncos after leaving New England, becoming a favored target for star quarterback Peyton Manning. A powerful part of the NFL's most productive scoring attack in history, Welker helped Denver reach the Super Bowl last season, where the Broncos were humbled 43-8 by Seattle.
USA adds Bradley, Mahan, Simpson for Ryder Cup - Yahoo Sports 1 hour ago
Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent, found guilty of intoxication manslaughter for a 2012 car crash that killed former teammate Jerry Brown, has a reinstatement path to the National Football League. The league said Tuesday that Brent could be conditionally reinstated to the NFL if he completes a 10-game suspension. He would be able to visit the Cowboys training camp after the sixth week of the season and to practice with the team in the ninth week.
USA captain Tom Watson selected Keegan Bradley, Hunter Mahan and Webb Simpson as his three wildcard selections for a Ryder Cup team intent on revenge later this month at Gleneagles, Scotland. The Americans have lost five of the past six biennial team golf showdowns against Europe, including in 2012 at Medinah, when the visitors made a stunning last-day singles rally to stun the US squad on home soil. Previously assured of a place on the US team for the September 26-28 meeting with Europe were Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Jim Furyk, Jimmy Walker, Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed and Zach Johnson.

Apple: Some nude shots taken from stars' accounts - AP 2 hours ago
A federal appeals court has cleared Yelp of claims that it extorted businesses into advertising on its site by fabricating bad reviews about them.A handful of small-business owners filed a class-action lawsuit against Yelp in 2010, claiming it tried to strong-arm them into buying ads by hiding or removing positive reviews, or penning negative ones.The claims had already been dismissed in federal court, and the court of appeals on Tuesday upheld that decision.The plaintiffs lacked the factual evidence to support their claims of extortion, the appeals court said. â€śThe business owners failed sufficiently to allege that Yelp wrongfully threatened economic loss by manipulating user reviews,â€ť said the decision from the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Google to build quantum computing processors - PC World 5 hours ago
Over the Labor Day weekend, hackers leaked nude images of a number of celebrities including "Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence. The images appear to have been acquired from Appleâ€™s iCloud. So, iCloud is obviously insecure and everyone should stop using itâ€”right?Let's just cool our jets. Yes, iCloud appears to have played a role in at least some of the hacked nude celebrity images, but details are still too sketchy to start connecting dots that indict the entire Apple cloud storage service.Apple has issued a statement confirming that certain celebrity iCloud accounts were compromised but notes,Â "None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple's systems including iCloud or Find my iPhone. We are continuing to work with law enforcement to help identify the criminals involved."To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Recovery knocks 21 fish species from watch list - Yahoo 2 hours ago
By Warren Strobel and Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Even for a freelance journalist covering the tumult in the Arab world, Steven Sotloff's travels seemed nonstop. In December, he was in northern Syria, writing about the lives of destitute, displaced Syrians and the war, according to his published reports and his communications with colleagues and editors. It's pretty bad here," he e-mailed another journalist. "I've been sleeping at a front, hiding from tanks the past few nights, drinking rain water." In August 2013, telling colleagues he understood the dangers, Sotloff returned to Syria, slipping across the border from Turkey.
