  • RESPONSIBILITY FOR BIRTH CONTROL FALLS ON BOTH MEN AND WOMEN

    DEAR ABBY: I am sick to death of hearing about people who have too many kids and the hardship it imposes. Common sense for the women is to use birth control, but why don't men step up to the plate and have a vasectomy? I had one years ago and it has worked well for me. I never hear it mentioned on talk shows or read it in any advice columns, including yours. Men of America, wake up! -- JOSEPH IN LAS VEGAS DEAR JOSEPH: I'm sure the word "vasectomy" has been used in previous Dear Abby columns, but I'm glad to remind my male readers. ...

    Police officer resigns, another is fired after Ferguson incidents

    By Brendan O'Brien (Reuters) - A police officer has resigned after pointing a rifle at protesters during racially charged demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, and another has been fired for inappropriate social media posts stemming from the two weeks of civil unrest, officials said on Friday. Violent protests erupted in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson after white police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed black 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9, drawing global attention to the state of race relations in the United States. Police and demonstrators in Ferguson clashed nightly for days after the shooting, with authorities coming under fire for mass arrests and the what critics said were the use of heavy-handed tactics and military gear. At a protest on Aug. 19, Ray Albers, a police officer in the neighboring community of St. Ann, pointed his rifle at a Ferguson protester during a heated verbal exchange, an episode that was captured on video and widely circulated on social media.

  • Russian gas cut to Ukraine unlikely to hurt Europe: analysts
    Russian gas cut to Ukraine unlikely to hurt Europe: analysts

    Moscow's latest warning that Europe could run short of Russian gas this winter lacks credibility, analysts say, as the prospect of new Western sanctions over the Ukraine crisis rises. Russia is the EU's top supplier of gas which much of the supplies transiting through Ukraine. The 28-nation bloc depends on energy imports for more than 50 percent of its needs, and roughly 40 percent of supplies come from Russia. Russia in mid-June cut its deliveries for Ukraine after a pro-Western government took power, saying that Kiev had not be paying its bills on time.

  • Mazda's new MX-5 among the hottest cars coming this fall

    The diminutive drop-top two-seater sportscar will be celebrating its 25th anniversary with an all-new model, which will be launched simultaneously in Europe and the US on September 3. It may be a common sight on roads all around the world but back in 1989 when Mazda took the wraps off the original MX5 it was more than a little daring. Small, curvaceous, with the engine up front and the power going to the back wheels, it was an homage to the great British roadsters of the past -- the Lotus Elan, the TR 6 or the Austin Healy -- cars that were incredible fun to drive but that technology, reliability and the need for greater practicality had left standing on the hard shoulder -- often with the indicators flashing, the hood up and steam bellowing from the engine bay.  So Mazda is pulling out all of the stops when it comes to unveiling the latest generation.
