Violence-weary Missouri town sees second night of calm

By Nick Carey and Carey Gillam FERGUSON Mo. (Reuters) - The violence-weary town of Ferguson, Missouri, saw a second straight evening of relative calm on Thursday after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen nearly two weeks ago. Police, who were widely criticized for using heavy-handed tactics to quell earlier protests over the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, made only isolated arrests as local clergy and civic leaders worked to keep protests orderly. In an apparent sign of easing tensions, Captain Ron Johnson, a black State Highway Patrol officer placed in command last week after the criticism of the local police, said a drawdown of National Guard troops would begin on Friday. Governor Jay Nixon ordered the National Guard deployment to help quell the looting and vandalism that have accompanied the nightly protest rallies over Brown's death on Aug. 9, but the troops have largely kept a low profile.

New countdown for launch of European navigation satellites

Two satellites for Europe's rival to GPS, the Galileo navigation system, will be lifted into space from French Guiana on Friday a day after bad weather delayed their blast-off, launch firm Arianespace said. The pair of orbiters will boost to six the number of satellites in the Galileo constellation and bring the network a step closer to becoming operational. Blast-off on a Russian-made Soyuz rocket will happen from Europe's Kourou space centre at 1227 GMT, Arianespace announced in a statement, after a "favourable" turn in the weather. "Arianespace has decided to restart the countdown" for launch to take place 24 hours after the initial scheduled liftoff, the company said.



England's managers' association sorry for Mackay statement

England's League Managers' Association apologised Friday for a statement it issued on behalf of former Cardiff manager Malky Mackay, saying the wording was "inappropriate and has been perceived to trivialise matters of a racist, sexist or homophobic nature". The LMA spoke on behalf of Mackay on Thursday after the 42-year-old Scot and his right-hand man Iain Moody were alleged to have shared racist, sexist and homophobic texts when they worked together at Cardiff. It tried to explain Mackay's conduct by saying he was "letting off steam to a friend during some friendly text message banter". Such comments prompted the LMA to issue a new statement on Friday which said: "The LMA apologises for some of its wording, in its release yesterday, which was inappropriate and has been perceived to trivialise matters of a racist, sexist or homophobic nature.

Sickly Coral Reefs Fail the Smell Test

When looking for a place to settle down, these animals use chemical cues to avoid reefs that are littered with seaweed and flock to healthy habitats instead, according to a new study. Scientists have seen corals decline around the world over the past several decades, and the new findings help explain why some reefs aren't recovering or recruiting new corals, despite conservation efforts. "The reefs in Fiji have such a stark contrast between the healthy areas and the degraded areas," said Danielle Dixson, an assistant professor of biology at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, who led the study. Dixson and colleagues studied the waters off of three villages along the southern side of Fiji's main island, Viti Levu, which each managed a small marine protected area, or MPA, next to another area where fishing was allowed.

'Mad Men' star Hamm ditches suave for macabre in 'Young Doctor'

By Lisa Richwine LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Jon Hamm's new TV role takes him far from the stylish 1960s Madison Avenue setting of "Mad Men" to a dreary, isolated and bloody hospital in a small Russian village during the 1917 revolution. The backdrop for "A Young Doctor's Notebook," a four-episode series that makes its U.S. debut on Wednesday on the Ovation cable network, is not a typical one for television, and the show does not fit neatly into a particular genre. Hamm said he liked the project for both of those reasons. "It's dark, and yet it's quite comic," Hamm told Reuters. ...

'Breaking Bad' may be over, but Albuquerque businesses hope their high lasts
By Tim Gaynor (Reuters) - As fans readied to see how chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin Walter White would meet his end in the tense finale of "Breaking Bad" on Sunday night, one Albuquerque donut maker had a rush of customers on her hands. "It was insane," said Carrie Mettling, the co-owner of the city's Rebel Donut chain, which sold $10,000 worth of its blue frosted and crystal rock candy-slathered "blue sky" donuts in the hours before showtime.

CNN, NBC scrap Hillary Clinton TV projects

By Liana B.

The filmmaker for CNN said he could not complete the project because he'd received no cooperation from either Democrats or Republicans, while industry sources said NBC's move had nothing to do with the RNC, the Clintons or NBC News, which is run separately from NBC's entertainment unit. ...
