    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will have the court appeal of his four-game "Deflate-gate" suspension heard in a New York federal court, a judge in Minnesota ruled Thursday. US District Court Judge Richard Kyle ruled that despite the union filing its appeal of the ban in Minnesota, the NFL had taken the matter to court in New York first after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced he had upheld his original four-game suspension and denied Brady's appeal. The controversy began last January when footballs used by Brady and the Patriots' offensive unit were found to be below NFL minimums during a playoff game against Indianapolis, making them easier to grip, grab and hold.

  • 28/50   A minor-league baseball team let a machine call balls and strikes last night
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    It's a sport that embraced advanced statistics alongside more "old school" scouting and basic counting stats like RBIs, but it's also one where the "human element" plays a huge role in almost every part of the game — specifically, the home plate umpire who calls either a ball or strike on every single pitch. With the advent of advanced technology like the Pitch F/X system that tracks the location of every pitch thrown in a game, fans have started wondering when the umpire might get put out to pasture — or at least get some assistance from this system that has been installed in all 30 major league stadiums.

    A gruesome and deadly skin disease threatens to wreak havoc among North America’s salamanders, researchers warn in a study published in Science today. The Asian fungus that causes the disease — called Bsal — has already reached Europe, wiping out 96 percent of fire salamanders in the Netherlands. Now, researchers have determined that the fungus will spread like wildfire if it reaches North America, and they’re calling for an immediate ban on all salamander imports.

European scientists celebrated an historic first when Philae landed on a comet called 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in November after a 10-year journey through space aboard the Rosetta spacecraft. As it landed, Philae bounced and ended up in shadow, where its batteries soon ran out.

  • 42/50   Earth's 'magnetic personality' much older than previously thought
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    By Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Earth's magnetic field has been a life preserver, protecting against relentless solar winds, streams of charged particles rushing from the Sun, that otherwise could strip away the planet's atmosphere and water. "It would be a pretty barren planet without it," said University of Rochester geophysicist John Tarduno. Researchers on Thursday said evidence entombed in tiny crystals retrieved from the outback of western Australia indicates the magnetic field arose at least 4.2 billion years ago, much earlier than previously believed.

Malaysian investigators are expected in Reunion on Friday and the object, identified by aviation experts as part of a wing, would then be sent to a French military laboratory near Toulouse for checks, French police sources said. National carrier Malaysia Airlines was operating a Boeing 777 on the ill-fated flight, which disappeared in March last year en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in one of the most baffling mysteries in aviation history.

At a meeting of the Syriza movement's 200-member central committee held in an old cinema hall, Tsipras defended his decision to accept harsh bailout terms as the best deal anyone could win for Greece. The emergency congress will allow Tsipras to bring in new members and capitalize on the wider public support he has secured over the past two years, making it easier to defeat the far-left camp.
