  • Curry magic as Warriors down Rockets

    Stephen Curry turned on the style as the Golden State Warriors overcame a brave Houston Rockets fightback to triumph 123-110 and stretch their winning streak to 10 games. Reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Curry scored 35 points in a pulsating battle in Oakland to take the Warriors' record to 47-4 for the season. The highlight of Curry's latest masterclass was his role in a remarkable passage of play in the third quarter, when he stripped the ball inside the Warriors paint and then darted forward to launch an attack.

  • World tourism map redrawn since attacks, epidemics, migrants

    The world's tourism map is being redrawn at lightning speed as holidaymakers switch preferences prompted by terror attacks, epidemics and migrant crises. Jihadist attacks on tourists in Tunisia last year and the October 31 crash of a Russian plane which took off from its Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh have devastated the tourism sectors in both countries. Nearly 1.2 billion people travelled abroad in 2015, an increase of 4.4 percent over the previous year, but the casual observer could be fooled by the sight of deserted North African beaches, once tourist hotspots.

    Jose Mourinho has told friends and associates that he will replace Louis van Gaal as Manchester United manager at the end of the season, according to reports in several British newspapers on Wednesday. The Daily Mail, Daily Star, Daily Mirror and Daily Telegraph all quoted an unnamed source close to the 53-year-old Portuguese as saying his installation at Old Trafford was a "done deal".

    Taiwan prosecutors were Wednesday questioning the developer of an apartment complex that collapsed during an earthquake as they detailed flaws in construction of the building where nearly 100 people remain trapped. Prosecutors in the southern city of Tainan have launched an investigation into Saturday's disaster after photos showed cans and foam had been used to fill parts of the complex's concrete framework.

  • Klopp rues late freekick to West Ham in FA Cup exit

    Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp rued a crucial late free-kick awarded to West Ham on Tuesday but insisted his team can take a lot of positives despite their FA Cup exit. Klopp returned to training on Monday after suffering a serious bout of appendicitis last weekend only to see Angelo Ogbonna's late header from a freekick seal West Ham's 2-1 win. It was a fresh setback for the Reds who squandered a two-goal lead in the final 10 minutes of Saturday's Premier League draw with Sunderland.

  • 5 Things to Know About Zika Virus

    The outbreak of the mosquito-borne Zika virus throughout parts of the Americas has raised international concern because of the virus's possible connection to a neurological birth defect called microcephaly. In response to the outbreak, two doctors writing today (Feb. 8) in the Canadian Medical Association Journal have compiled a concise list of things that people should know about the virus, which is carried by certain mosquitoes in the Aedes group — mainly, the species Aedes aegypti. "The spread of this virus is highly dependent upon the mosquito population — we know that this Aedes aegypti is really distributed through really large swaths of the Americas," Dr. Derek MacFadden, one of the authors of the article and an infectious-disease physician at the University Health Network in Toronto, said in a podcast posted on the journal's website.

  • Trump, Sanders win big in New Hampshire

    The runaway victory by Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist advocating nothing less than "political revolution," spelled a deflating if expected defeat for Hillary Clinton, who put a brave face on the loss and admitted she had some work to do as the campaign moves south. On the Republican side, Trump's visceral assault on American politics galvanized voters who brought him his debut victory in the fledgling race, keeping him in pole position despite his second-place showing in last week's Iowa caucuses. Ohio Governor John Kasich's uplifting and positive message of renewal catapulted him into second place, a potentially critical result for him as the Republican Party works out which mainstream candidate could successfully challenge the billionaire tycoon.

  • Exclusive: U.S. and India consider joint patrols in South China Sea - U.S. official

    By Sanjeev Miglani NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The United States and India have held talks about conducting joint naval patrols that a U.S. defence official said could include the disputed South China Sea, a move that would likely anger Beijing, which claims most of the waterway. Washington wants its regional allies and other Asian nations to take a more united stance against China over the South China Sea, where tensions have spiked in the wake of Beijing's construction of seven man-made islands in the Spratly archipelago. India and the United States have ramped up military ties in recent years, holding naval exercises in the Indian Ocean that last year involved the Japanese navy.

  • Insight: Zika, disease of the poor, may not change abortion in Brazil

    By Stephen Eisenhammer RECIFE (Reuters) - Six months pregnant with her first child, Eritania Maria has a rash and a mild fever, symptoms of the Zika virus linked to brain deformities in newborn children in Brazil. Like other women in the slums of Recife, which squat on stilts over mosquito-ridden marshland in northeast Brazil, Maria has few options if her child develops microcephaly, the condition marked by an abnormally small head and underdeveloped brain that has been linked to Zika. Brazil has amongst the toughest abortion laws in the world and is culturally conservative.
