  • UK PM's former media chief tells court he heard hacked messages

    By Michael Holden LONDON (Reuters) - Andy Coulson, the former media chief to British Prime Minister David Cameron, told a London court on Wednesday he had listened to a recording of hacked voicemail messages left by the then interior minister in 2004. Coulson, who was editing Rupert Murdoch's now defunct News of the World tabloid at the time, is on trial for conspiring to hack into voicemail messages in a case that has shaken the media tycoon's empire and Britain's political elite. Coulson has denied the charge, but admitted for the first time on Wednesday that one of his senior reporters had once played him excerpts of voicemail messages left by then Home Secretary David Blunkett on the mobile phone of a woman with whom he was having a relationship. "This was the first and only time voicemail messages were played to me," Coulson told the packed Old Bailey court where he was appearing in the witness box for the third day in a trial that has run for 5-1/2 months.

    The world's dumbest idea: Taxing solar energy

    In a setback for the renewable energy movement, the state House in Oklahoma this week passed a bill that would levy a new fee on those who generate their own energy through solar equipment or wind turbines on their property. Still, it’s the new customers who will rapidly make up the majority, even in a traditional oil-and-gas powerhouse like Oklahoma. That’s because the cost of solar power systems has been drastically falling for the last five years. Now, utility firms in Oklahoma say they just want to be compensated for use of their infrastructure.

  • Modern Sharks Aren't So Primitive, Ancient Fossil Suggests
    Modern Sharks Aren't So Primitive, Ancient Fossil Suggests

    Sharks are usually thought of as primitive creatures, sometimes called "living fossils." But a new study of a 325-million-year-old shark fossil — the most complete of its kind — suggests modern sharks have evolved significantly from their bony ancestors. The ancient fossil has characteristics of both bony fishes and modern sharks. But its gill structures more closely resemble those of bony fishes, challenging the notion that modern sharks have remained unchanged over evolutionary time. "Standard anatomical textbooks say that the shark is a model of a primitive jawed vertebrate, [but] that’s all wrong," said John Maisey, curator of paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and a co-author of the study detailed today (April 16) in the journal Nature.
