  • Shutting down 'shark finning': US fishermen promise a fight

    American fishermen are digging in for a fight over a proposal to shut down the vestiges of the U.S. harvest of shark fins, prized for soup and traditional medicine in Asia, and send a message to the rest of the world. A bill backed by Sen. Cory Booker, a New Jersey Democrat, and others promises to ban the sale and possession of shark fins to ensure U.S. fishermen and seafood dealers no longer participate in the global fin trade. "America can become a global leader by shutting down the domestic market for shark fins," Booker said.

  • Watch for behaviour changes for clues of dementia onset

    Memory loss may not always be the first warning sign that dementia is brewing — changes in behaviour or personality might be an early clue. Researchers on Sunday outlined a syndrome called "mild behavioural impairment" that may be a harbinger of Alzheimer's or other dementias, and proposed a checklist of symptoms to alert doctors and families. "Historically those symptoms have been written off as a psychiatric issue, or as just part of aging," said Dr. Zahinoor Ismail of the University of Calgary, who presented the checklist at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference in Toronto.

  • Wildfire Rages Through California - In Pictures

    Fires crews are battling to constrain the massive wildfires currently blazing in California.  Mountainous areas north of Los Angeles have been ablaze since Saturday, threatening up to 2,000 homes. 1,500 homes in the Santa Clarita area have been evacuated. The flames are currently sweeping through an area of 22,000 acres.  A combination of blistering high and low humidity first sparked the fire on Friday in the Sand Canyon area. Strong winds then fanned the flames and spread smoke, blackening the sky over Los Angeles. Hundreds of firefighters are tackling the blaze, along with 30 water-dropping helicopters and flame retardant-dropping planes.

  • Historic solar flight marks first round-the-world journey

    The world's first round-the-world flight to be powered solely by the sun's energy made history on Tuesday as it landed in Abu Dhabi, where it first took off on an epic 25,000-mile (40, 000-kilometre ) journey that began more than a year ago.

After landing the plane, pilot Bertrand Piccard was greeted outside the cockpit by his Solar Impulse partner and fellow pilot Andre Borschberg.
