    Harvard Researcher on Aging: There's no 'limit on the human lifespan'

    My peers of a certain age will remember an Oil of Olay commercial about deciding not to grow old gracefully, but rather to "fight it every step of the way." And while we spend billions trying to turn back time, the Fountain of Youth has yet to be found at the bottom of a lotion bottle. But one researcher from Harvard Medical School, David Sinclair, believes the secret to stopping the aging process is closer than we think.

    Australia tycoon blasts Chinese government 'mongrels'

    Outspoken Australian tycoon Clive Palmer has labelled the Chinese government "mongrels" who "shoot their own people" in a televised tirade that was criticised by Canberra Tuesday as "hugely damaging". The billionaire politician, who was elected to parliament last year as head of the Palmer United Party and is known for his efforts to rebuild a replica of the Titanic, also called the Chinese "bastards" who "want to take over this country". The flamboyant mining baron is locked in a long-running dispute over royalties and port operations with Hong Kong-based Citic Pacific relating to its Sino Iron magnetite project, a partnership with China's state-owned Metallurgical Group Corporation. The mogul denies the allegations and told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's live Q&A current affairs panel discussion late Monday that he was "owed about Aus$500 million (US$465 million) by the Communist Chinese government".

    Israeli strike kills wife, son of Hamas military chief

    Israeli warplanes struck Gaza, killing the wife and child of Hamas's top military chief, the Islamist movement said Wednesday after truce talks in Cairo collapsed in a storm of violence. It was not immediately clear whether Mohammed Deif himself, who has topped Israel's most wanted list for decades, was killed or wounded in the strike which hit a house in Gaza City late on Tuesday. Hamas vowed bloody revenge, saying Israel had "opened the gates of hell". The deadly attack came just hours after a resumption of the fighting in and around Gaza after more than a week of calm as Egyptian negotiators pushed the warring sides to broker a decisive end to six weeks of bloodshed.

    Patient isolated in California hospital for Ebola testing

    A patient who may have been exposed to the Ebola virus has been put in isolation at a hospital in Sacramento, California, health group Kaiser Permanente announced Tuesday. "We are working with the Sacramento County Division of Public Health regarding a patient admitted to the Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center who may have been exposed to the Ebola virus," said Stephen Parodi, an infectious disease specialist. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be testing blood samples to rule out the presence of the virus, he said. "To protect our patients, staff and physicians, even though infection with the virus is unconfirmed, we are taking the actions recommended by the CDC as a precaution, just as we do for other patients with a suspected infectious disease," Parodi said.
