Myanmar investigators dismiss missing plane reports, end search
28 Oct 2016 at 1:50am
Myanmar has halted an investigation into unconfirmed reports of an aircraft crashing into the sea off the country's west coast on Friday, a senior official with the Civil Aviation Department (CAD) said. Staff from CAD's office on Manaung Island off the coast of northwestern Rakhine state had been sent to the area where the plane was reported to have gone missing, but could not find any evidence of any crash taking place, CAD official Tin Maung Ni told Reuters. The department had not received any reports of missing aircraft from airlines operating in Myanmar airspace.

Federal judge blocks two abortion laws in Alabama
28 Oct 2016 at 1:07am
Judge Myron Thompson in the District Court for the Middle District of Alabama issued a preliminary injunction, ruling that the laws are likely to be found unconstitutional, according to online court records. Thompson wrote the law would likely force the closing of clinics in Huntsville and Tuscaloosa, where the majority of abortions in the state are performed, causing an undo burden for women seeking an abortion and other services. Thompson wrote that Alabama's law restricting an abortion method commonly performed in the second trimester of a pregnancy, known as dilation and evacuation, also places an undue burden on women.

28 Oct 2016 at 12:01am

Australia's Ardent Leisure Group said on Friday its Dreamworld theme park will remain closed following the death of four people on a water ride, scrapping its initial plan to reopen this week.

Dreamworld had planned to reopen on Friday, but abandoned the plan after a public backlash.

Rebel shelling kills children at school in west Aleppo: government, monitor
27 Oct 2016 at 11:46pm
Shelling by Syrian rebels killed several children at a school in government-held western Aleppo on Thursday, state media and a monitoring group said, just a day after air strikes on a school in a rebel-held village in Idlib, 50km (32 miles) away. The shells hit two neighborhoods, Syrian state news agency SANA reported: the national school in the Shahaba area, killing three children and wounding more than a dozen others, and the other attack killed three people in Hamdaniya. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor of the five-year-old war, said six children under the age of 16 had been killed in the two attacks, including a baby.

Exclusive: EpiPen price hikes add millions to Pentagon costs
27 Oct 2016 at 10:27pm

NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Mylan NV's price hikes on EpiPens have added millions to U.S. Department of Defense spending since 2008 as the agency covered more prescriptions for the lifesaving allergy shot at near retail prices, government data provided to Reuters shows. Pentagon spending rose to $57 million over the past year from $9 million in 2008 - an increase driven both by volume and by price hikes that had a bigger bite on prescriptions filled at retail pharmacies, according to the previously unreported data. The Pentagon gets a government discount on EpiPens dispensed at military treatment facilities and by mail order.

Mylan EpiPen: One piece of a complicated U.S. pricing system
27 Oct 2016 at 10:27pm
A Reuters review of government data found that Mylan's price hikes on the lifesaving allergy shot have increased spending for the U.S. Defense Department, based on its arrangements for covering drug costs. Among those without insurance, some pay full retail price, while others get coupons from drugmakers that reduce it. Government plans, such as the Medicare program for seniors and Medicaid for the poor, have their own rules.

After third-quarter revenue drop, Baidu warns China ad curbs to hit fourth-qu...
27 Oct 2016 at 10:00pm

By Catherine Cadell and Paul Carsten BEIJING (Reuters) - Chinese internet search giant Baidu Inc warned investors fourth-quarter revenue will slide, hitting shares, as a government crackdown on healthcare advertising that tipped the firm into its first-ever quarterly sales drop bites even harder. Baidu said revenue could slip as much as 4.6 percent in the October-December period, following the 0.7 percent third-quarter drop it reported on Thursday. Earlier this year it was at the center of a national media outcry when a student with a fatal cancer blamed Baidu ads for directing him to suspect, ultimately ineffectual treatment.

Obama rallies Obamacare troops at 'critical time' for program
27 Oct 2016 at 3:04pm

By Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Thursday urged more than 25,000 volunteers and advocates who dialed in to a White House conference call to pull out the stops to boost the number of people signing up for Obamacare health insurance plans. Obama warned it will be challenging to overcome the skepticism about the plans given an onslaught of headlines about surging premium prices, but he said the stakes are high.
