Cameron Diaz And Jimmy Fallon Play Roller Golf

If you’ve ever thought golf needs a little more excitement, this one’s for you. Jimmy Fallon has added roller skates to the game — and it moves a whole lot faster than the Masters.

On Wednesday’s “Tonight Show,” Fallon played the first roller golf match against actress Cameron Diaz on a course that took them through hazards such as rug traps and a dancing panda.

“We don’t count strokes. We don’t keep score. It’s just a race to see who can finish the round first,” explained Fallon.

Fair warning to any future contestants: Fallon …read more

Vermont Lawmakers Pass GMO Labeling Bill; Governor Expected To Sign

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont lawmakers have passed the country’s first state bill to require the labeling of genetically modified foods as such, setting up a war between powerful lobbyists for the behemoth U.S. food industry and an American public that overwhelmingly says it approves of the idea.

The Vermont House approved the measure Wednesday evening, about a week after the state Senate, and Gov. Peter Shumlin said he plans to sign it. The requirements would take effect July 1, 2016, giving food producers time to comply. Shumlin praised the vote and said he looked forward to signing the …read more

Medical Waste Used To Generate Electricity In Oregon May Contain Fetal Tissue

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon commission has ordered a waste-to-power facility to stop accepting boxed medical waste after learning it might be using the remains of aborted fetuses from British Columbia to generate electricity.

Sam Brentano, chairman of the Marion County board of commissioners, said late Wednesday the board is taking immediate action to prohibit human tissue from future deliveries. The British Columbia Health Ministry tells The Associated Press that regional health authorities there have a contract with a company that sends biomedical waste, including fetal tissue, to Oregon, where it’s incinerated in the waste-to-energy plant

Obama: New Sanctions Against Russia Are 'Teed Up'

TOKYO (AP) — President Barack Obama says new sanctions targeting Russia are, quote, “teed up.” But he says the United States needs support from allies to make the sanctions work and says he is working to build such backing.

Obama said Russia has not abided by the spirit or the letter of an agreement reached in Geneva last week that aimed to ease tensions in eastern Ukraine. He says Russia has not stepped in to halt aggressive moves by pro-Russian insurgents in eastern Ukraine Obama made his remarks during a news conference with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during his …read more

FDA To Propose E-Cigarette Regulations For The First Time

WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal government wants to ban sales of electronic cigarettes to minors and require approval for new products and health warning labels under regulations being proposed by the Food and Drug Administration.

While the proposal being issued Thursday won’t immediately mean changes for the popular devices, the move is aimed at eventually taming the fast-growing e-cigarette industry. The agency said the proposal sets a foundation for regulating the products but the rules don’t immediately ban the wide array of flavors of e-cigarettes, curb marketing on places like TV or set product standards.

Any further rules …read more

Hillary Clinton Calls For More Sanctions On Russia

STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says she believes that the outcome in Ukraine will be a bad one for Russia.

Clinton, who is considering another run for president, says the United States and Europe need to do more to stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin (POO’-tihn) and make the cost to invade Ukraine unaffordable. Clinton spoke Wednesday at an issues forum to a group of about 2,300 students, faculty and staff at the University of Connecticut. The talk was not open to the general public.

Syrian Activists Accuse Assad Of New Chlorine Gas Attacks

BEIRUT (AP) — Syrian government forces have attacked rebel-held areas with poisonous chlorine gas in recent weeks and months, leaving men, women and children coughing, choking and gasping for breath, according to Associated Press interviews with more than a dozen activists, medics and residents on the opposition side.

Syria flatly denied the allegations, and they have yet to be confirmed by any foreign country or international organization. But if true, they highlight the limitations of the global effort to rid President Bashar Assad’s government of its chemical weapons. Witnesses near Damascus and in a central rebel-held village told the …read more
