• Trump rips Obamacare, Clinton as rivals blitz Florida

    White House rivals Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump staged dueling rallies in crucial battleground Florida, with the Republican billionaire zeroing in on the Obamacare health overhaul as a job-killing, wallet-busting "monster." With just two weeks before the November 8 election, polls showed Democrat Clinton -- who is vying to become America's first female president -- dominating nationally and looking for a resounding mandate to govern the bitterly divided country. Early voting began in Florida on Monday, an urgent reminder that candidates have little time left to make their case in the country's third most populous state, one with a wide mix of constituencies, including numerous retirees, Latinos and Bible Belt whites. The Republican nominee, determined to ride out the controversies hobbling his campaign, made a pitch to Florida's elderly voters by assailing a sharp rise in health insurance premiums expected next year under President Barack Obama's signature health care reform.

  • Sturridge brace helps Liverpool down Spurs, Arsenal through

    By Toby Davis LONDON (Reuters) - Daniel Sturridge sent Liverpool into the League Cup quarter-finals and gave his manager a reminder of his talents with two clinical goals in a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday. The England striker has struggled to convince Liverpool boss Juergen Klopp this season, but he was a livewire all night at Anfield where his double put the hosts in charge before Vincent Janssen pulled a goal back with a penalty for the visitors. Klopp's side are joined in the last eight by Arsenal, who eased past second-tier Reading 2-0 with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scoring twice, while Newcastle United romped to a 6-0 win over 10-man Preston North End and Hull City won 2-1 at Bristol City.

  • Devil vs. Superbug: Bacteria Succumb to Tasmanian Devil Milk

    Milk from Tasmanian devils could be used in the fight against antibiotic-resistant superbugs, new research from Australia finds. The devils are marsupials, meaning that their teensy young hop into their parents' pouches after birth to finish developing, and in a new study, researchers found that the marsupial's milk contains several powerful peptides called cathelicidins, which can act as natural antibiotics. Humans have one cathelicidin, but Tasmanian devils have six, and their fellow marsupial opossums have 12, according to the researchers.
