Tony Abbott vows to 'shirt-front' Vladimir Putin at G20 - CNN.com
"Abbott told reporters: "Look, I'm going to shirt-front Mr Putin... you bet I am. I am going to be saying to Mr Putin, Australians were murdered. They were murdered by Russian-backed rebels using Russian-supplied equipment." He continued: "We are very unhappy about this. We accept that you didn't want this to happen but we now demand that you fully cooperate with the criminal investigation, and if the criminal investigation identifies suspects that you have some influence over, they've got to be produced and justice has got to be done." Putin's upcoming presence on Australian soil has been a contentious topic in the wake of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 over a pro-Russian separatist-controlled area of eastern Ukraine in July." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Pricey Hermès bags 'reek like a skunk' - Oct. 13, 2014
"This is hardly what customers expect from handbags that can cost $10,000, $20,000 and even $60,000 for exotic skins. For years, demand has been so high for the bags that shoppers are placed on lengthy waitlists for months just to buy one of the iconic Birkin, Kelly or Elan bags. But over the last year, more than 2,200 people have posted comments about how smelly their Hermès purchases are and how devastated it's made them on Purseblog, a site that reviews handbags and hosts forums for customers to talk about them. The New York Post first reported on the frenzy. Many of the commenters noted that the smell gets much stronger in warm temperatures, and it's almost unbearable in the summer, in direct sunlight or even in the passenger sear of a heated SUV." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Vatican proposes 'stunning' shift on gays, lesbians – CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs - http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2014...
"Using strikingly open language, a new Vatican report says the church should welcome and appreciate gays, and offers a solution for divorced and remarried Catholics who want to receive Communion. At a press conference on Monday to present the report, Cardinal Louis Antonio Tagle of the Philippines said Catholic clergy meeting here have largely focused on the impact of poverty, war and immigration on families. But the newly proposed language on gays and civil marriages represents a “pastoral earthquake,” said one veteran Vatican journalist. “Regarding homosexuals, it went so far as to pose the question whether the church could accept and value their sexual orientation without compromising Catholic doctrine,” said John Thavis, a former Rome bureau chief for Catholic News Service. The Rev. James Martin, an author and Jesuit priest, called the report's language on gays and lesbians "revolutionary."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

HIV's spread traced back to 1920s Kinshasa - LA Times
"In a paper published recently in the journal Science, researchers argued that HIV-1 group M -- the strain of HIV responsible for about 90% of infections worldwide -- first appeared in the city of Leopoldville, or what is now Kinshasa, in the 1920s. Using statistical methods and genetic sequencing data, researchers determined that the disease spread through what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo via poor medical practices and through the interaction of sex workers and miners." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"However, some researchers believe the virus made the jump to humans much earlier. "To say that this started around the 1920s just doesn't wash with me," said Dr. Joseph McCormick, a viral disease expert at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, who was not involved in the study. McCormick said the broad diversity of HIV strains in Africa suggests that the virus had... more... - Steve C Team Marina
Super cool. I remember reading maybe a decade ago that they had tested various archived samples and found cases of HIV as early as 1940. Each step of new knowledge about the origin and spread has been so fascinating to read. I suppose in a way it's "the" illness that's been discovered and researched in my lifetime. I still remember the PSA with Magic Johnson from the beginning of my Wayne's World tape, and reading Ryan White's autobiography as a kid. - Lo

"Spotlighting the struggle for children’s rights, the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Pakistani girls’ education activist Malala Yousafzai and Indian children’s rights activist Kailash Satyarthi, the Nobel committee announced in Oslo on Friday. Still a high school student, Yousafzai, 17, is the youngest winner in history of a prize that is infrequently awarded to women. She was at school in Birmingham, England, when the prize was announced, and her organization, the Malala Fund, said that her first statement of reaction would come only after the end of the school day." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"Satyarthi, one of the world’s leading campaigners against child slavery, has staged countless raids in India over 30 years to free child slaves in the rug-making industry.

Getting to school on a walking school bus - CNN.com - http://www.cnn.com/2014...
"Inspired by international programs, district leaders in Somerville implemented the walking school bus, which is still running today. Participants say the walking school bus has built a greater sense of community. Parents, teachers and volunteers -- all on foot -- pick up students along a designated route on their way to school. Firefighters, police officers, even Sparky -- mascot of the Somerset Patriots baseball team -- participate on occasion. As they walk to school in sun, snow and rain, the bus continues to grow. Special days have been designed to draw extra attention to their everyday initiative. Walk to School Wednesdays and Foot-It Fridays are a direct result of student feedback and involvement. One-third of the student body participated in the school's most recent Walk to School on Wednesday. "It's kind of like you're driving in a real school bus, but you just walk all the way to the school," fifth grader Makhia Robinson said." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Awkward: Sears borrows $400M from its CEO - Sep. 16, 2014
"Talk about awkward. Sears secured a $400 million loan this week from a hedge fund whose sole shareholder is the struggling retailer's chairman, CEO and leading investor."" "It's shady because there is clearly a conflict of interest here," said Brian Sozzi, who closely tracks the retail industry as CEO of Belus Capital Advisors. Devil's in the details: Sears, which lost $1 billion during the first half of the year, revealed the loan in a vaguely-worded regulatory filing late Monday. The company said the the short-term loan is being provided by entities tied to ESL Investments, whose sole stockholder and CEO is Sears head Eddie Lampert. ESL Investments controls 24.8% of Sears's outstanding shares, making it the No. 1 stockholder. Lampert himself is listed as owning 23.7% of the company's outstanding stock.

Cramblett told CNN that her "shock" came when she called Midwest Sperm Bank to secure more vials for a second pregnancy. "When I called to order that sperm and the vials, I asked them for (donor) 380 and they came back on the line and said I do believe we have sent you donor number 330, are you sure that's not what you asked for?" said Cramblett. "They came back on the line and then had asked me if I had requested an African-American donor. At that point, I said no, 380 was blond-haired, blue-eyed, resembling my partner, Amanda. They said we believe 330 is an African-American donor. We can no longer talk to you anymore," said Cramblett." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

The walruses are forced onto land when sea ice, which they use to rest between dives for food, disappears, according to NOAA.
