    'Anti-Facebook' social network gets fresh funding

    Flush with a reported $5.5 million in fresh funding, upstart social network Ello on Thursday legally changed its corporate standing to back a promise to remain ad-free. Ello converted to a public benefit corporation, which it described as "a new kind of for-profit company in the USA that exists to produce a benefit for society as a whole — not just to make money for its investors." Created last year as a "private" social network, Ello (www.ello.co) recently opened its doors on an invitation-only basis. Facebook has been criticized by some users over its privacy policies and ads that use personal information.

  • 'We won't pay,' furious Cameron tells EU over surprise budget

    By Alastair Macdonald BRUSSELS (Reuters) - In a vivid display of public fury at European Union technocrats, British Prime Minister David Cameron refused to pay a surprise 2.1-billion-euro (1.65 billion pound) bill on Friday as EU leaders ordered an urgent review of how the budget figures were arrived at. As Eurosceptics at home leapt on news that the EU executive -- branded a "thirsty vampire" -- had demanded a sum worth about one seventh of London's annual payment after a major statistical review of national incomes, Cameron demanded action from fellow leaders at a summit calling the bill "completely unacceptable". He found some sympathy - a visibly furious Cameron told a news conference that Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi had also lambasted "bureaucrats without a heart", who made it harder to persuade citizens of the Union's value. "It's an appalling way to behave," Cameron said.

    Aretha Franklin's Press Tour Goes Hilariously Bad

    Eyebrow raising, eye rolling, and awkward pauses are not things news anchors hope to get out of guests during interviews. Aretha Franklin doesn't do a whole lot of interviews on live television, and now we might know why. During a recent press tour via satellite for her new album, "Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classics," the Queen of Soul spoke to dozens of television news anchors, and to put it simply, it went really — and we mean really — badly. There were some audio delays and earpiece issues mixed with what Aretha calls a lack of sleep, telling a Fox 45 morning news anchor, "Listen I only had four hours sleep, OK? I'm a little slow."

    By Ellen Wulfhorst NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York City doctor who treated Ebola patients in West Africa became the first person to test positive for the virus in America's largest city, setting off fresh fears about the spread of the disease. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said residents were safe to travel around the city, even as officials disclosed that Dr. Craig Spencer had ridden subways, taken a taxi and visited a bowling alley since returning from Guinea on Oct. 17. Spencer, 33, had worked with the humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders in Africa. ...

  • Easter Island's ancient inhabitants weren't so lonely after all
    Easter Island's ancient inhabitants weren't so lonely after all

    By Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - They lived on a remote dot of land in the middle of the Pacific, 2,300 miles (3,700 km) west of South America and 1,100 miles (1,770 km) from the closest island, erecting huge stone figures that still stare enigmatically from the hillsides.
