On Monday, Geraldo Rivera, no stranger to controversy, stirred things up again while appearing on the Fox News show "Outnumbered." In a segment on what 20-somethings really want in a marriage, the talk turned to the concept of "beta marriages," in which the union can be formalized or dissolved after a two-year trial period with no paperwork or hassle, allowing partners to see if they want to continue beyond a short-term commitment.
- Obama says strains over Ukraine not leading to new Cold War with Russia
By Steve Holland and Anna Yukhananov WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama escalated U.S. economic sanctions against Russia on Tuesday for its aggression against Ukraine but dismissed suggestions the growing chill in U.S.-Russian relations marked the start of a new Cold War. The United States and the European Union, in a carefully coordinated action, announced targeted new sanctions against Russian banks, energy and defense firms. It was the West's most serious response yet to what it calls Russian instigation of and continuing support for the separatist uprising in the east and the shootdown of a Malaysian passenger jet on July 17 over eastern Ukraine. Obama, speaking at the White House, said the sanctions would have a "greater impact on the Russian economy than we've seen so far" in a drive to force Moscow to stop backing the separatists.

Fears that the west African Ebola outbreak could spread to other continents grew on Wednesday with European and Asian countries on alert and a leading medical charity warning the epidemic was out of control. Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said the crisis gripping Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone would only get worse and warned there was no overarching strategy to handle the world's worst-ever outbreak of the disease. Hong Kong announced quarantine measures for suspected cases, although one woman arriving from Africa with possible symptoms tested negative, while the EU said it was ready to deal with the threat. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has held talks with global health officials on potential measures to halt the spread of the disease.
- Is the 16GB iPhone ‘the biggest ripoff in tech?’
Are Apple and other smartphone manufacturers straight-up gouging you when it comes to smartphone storage? LaptopMag’s Mark Spoonauer seems to think so and he makes a case that there is no real reason that a 32GB smartphone should cost a full $100 more than a 16GB smartphone. “Smartphone manufacturers pay a measly 50 cents per gigabyte for smartphone storage,” Spoonauer fumes. “So, increasing the standard storage from 16GB to 32GB would cost just $16 per phone. Some flagship phones have already gone this route, but why not all of them?” Spoonauer notes that Apple isn’t the only manufacturer to seemingly charge you way too much money for a 16GB phone, although he also points out that at least with Samsung’s 16GB
- Internet privacy service Tor warns users it was attacked
By Jim Finkle BOSTON Reuters - Tor, the Internet privacy protecting service, said on Wednesday it discovered a compromise on its network that indicated somebody was trying to monitor the activity of its users. "While we don't know when they started doing the attack, users who operated or accessed hidden services from early February through July 4 should assume they were affected," Tor said in a blog entry. Tor is an anonymity tool designed to protect the identity of Internet users by routing traffic through multiple nodes around the globe. The blog post said that it was not sure how much information the attackers were able to obtain in their efforts to monitor traffic on Tor.
