Now that he has been unmasked as Mohammed Emwazi, the tall man with the British accent and mocking tone is no longer a mystery. He is revealed as one more furious young Londoner, in this case a well-educated, middle-class jihadi in his mid-20s who turned against the country that nurtured him after he moved to Britain from Kuwait as a child. He still has his knife, but Emwazi may have lost his edge.
LONDON (AP) — As "Jihadi John," he was a terrifying figure, his identity concealed by a black mask, his threatening tone backed up by his oversize, serrated knife and his willingness to use it in the name of Islamic State…

The yearlong search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has turned up no sign of the plane, but that doesn't mean it's been unproductive. It has yielded lessons and discoveries that could benefit millions, including coastal Australians, air and sea travelers and scientists trying to understand ancient changes to the earth's crust: http://apne.ws/1vNbE4c

Local officials stung by a recent decision to ban natural gas fracking have raised the idea of redrawing the Keystone State's border. Even though they don't expect it to happen, members of the Upstate New York Towns Association hope the specter of secession will result in something _ anything _ good for a struggling part of the state peering enviously over the state line.
CONKLIN, N.Y. (AP) — Plenty of people leave New York state but in a job-hungry stretch of upstate, folks talk about staying put and seceding to Pennsylvania. Local officials stung by a recent decision to ban natural gas…

+D. Johnson Classic tyrant/dictator. A bit more subtle than historical personages, what with his slow building of his image, slowly taking over the press, the gradual brainwashing of the public. A classic criminal, imo.

The vast majority of Muslim clerics say the Islamic State group cherry picks what it wants from Islam's holy book, the Quran, and from accounts of Muhammad's actions and sayings, known as the Hadith. It then misinterprets many of these, while ignoring everything in the texts that contradicts those hand-picked selections, experts say.
CAIRO (AP) — Three British schoolgirls believed to have gone to Syria to become "jihadi" brides. Three young men charged in New York with plotting to join the Islamic State group and carry out attacks on American soil.…

Minoso, regarded as baseball's first black Latino star, was a Havana native who spent most of his career in left field. He is one of only two players to appear in a major league game in five different decades. He got his final hit in 1976 at age 53 and went 0 for 2 in two games in 1980 for the White Sox, who tried unsuccessfully over the years to get the "Cuban Comet" into baseball's Hall of Fame.
CHICAGO (AP) — Minnie Minoso, who hit a two-run home run in his first at-bat when he became major league baseball's first black player in Chicago in 1951, has died, the Cook County medical examiner said Sunday. The medical…

Russia's top investigative body says it is looking into several possible motives for the killing of prominent opposition figure Boris Nemtsov, including an attempt to destabilize the state, Islamic extremism, the Ukraine conflict and his personal life. A statement from the body, the Investigative Committee, does not address the possibility seen as likely by many of Nemtsov's supporters _ that he was killed for being one of President Vladimir Putin's most adamant and visible critics: http://apne.ws/1vJ8mPo

On Antarctica, scientists find that glaciers are thawing at an accelerating pace. In the worst case scenario, melting ice could push sea levels up 10 feet (3 meters) worldwide in a century or two, recurving heavily populated coastlines.
CAPE LEGOUPIL, Antarctica (AP) — From the ground in this extreme northern part of Antarctica, spectacularly white and blinding ice seems to extend forever. What can't be seen is the battle raging underfoot to re-shape…
