Palestinians are expected to turn to the United Nations in September for recognition of an independent state on that territory. Recognition would require approval by the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council.  Story continues

Ninety years ago, the march demanded union rights and pitted thousands of armed miners against coal company security guards, county sheriffs, and ultimately, the U.S. Army. The goal of this year's march was to protect Blair Mountain from mountaintop removal coal extraction, end all mountaintop removal mining in Appalachia and promote local jobs and sustainable communities.  Story continues

A working group of 31 scientists from 14 countries meeting at the WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer announced that their review of all the available scientific evidence suggested cell phone use should be classified as "possibly carcinogenic."  Story continues
