  • Federer still not happy with Hawkeye

    By Pritha Sarkar LONDON (Reuters) - If it is so dark that Hawkeye stops working, then matches should be called off at Wimbledon, Roger Federer said on Saturday. For the second year running, Tomas Berdych found himself playing into the night at Wimbledon even though technology had given up the ghost. Twelve months ago, Berdych was left fuming after he slumped to a third round defeat by Marin Cilic that finished at 9.38pm local time -- the latest finish at the All England Club outside of Centre Court.

  • Singapore activists condemn treatment of anti-Lee teen

    Prominent Singaporean intellectuals, artists and activists Saturday criticised the government's "harsh" treatment of a teenage boy behind online attacks on the late former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew. In an open letter to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, the former leader's son, the 77 signatories said they were "aware of the negative aspects" of 16-year-old Amos Yee's pronouncements in a YouTube video and on his blog. Yee was convicted in May on two criminal charges: wounding religious feelings in an expletive-laden video comparing Lee Kuan Yew to Jesus, and circulating an obscene cartoon of the former prime minister, who died in March.

  • German anti-euro party marks shift to right with new leader

    Germany's Alternative for Germany (AfD) party ousted its co-founder and frontman Bernd Lucke Saturday to elect a new leader from its right wing, signalling a shift in focus to immigration from its anti-euro origins. Frauke Petry, who heads a national conservative faction within the fledgling AfD, won a clear majority at a two-day extraordinary party congress in the western city of Essen, which gathered about 3,500 members. The party had been riven by a months-long power struggle between Lucke, 52, its economic neo-liberal leader and founder, and 40-year-old Petry, with analysts even warning it could implode.

  • Honeymoon is over for Greek couple who went penniless in NYC

    Newlyweds Valasia Limnioti and Konstantinos Patronis' long-planned "dream trip" to the U.S. ended in New York City, where their three-week honeymoon quickly turned into a nightmare: Their Greek-issued credit and debit cards were suddenly declined and they were left penniless. The couple skipped a few meals before spending their last dollars on dinner at McDonald's. Strangers from two Greek Orthodox churches in the city's Queens borough came to the rescue, giving them survival cash until their flight home to Greece on Friday. In Greece, they generally pay in cash, which is preferred by businesses, but they were told to have cards for the U.S.

  • Fatal fire on Japan's airtight bullet train exposes lapses

    A fatal fire on Japan's bullet train, started by a man who self-immolated this week, has revealed blind spots in a system renowned for its speed, punctuality and safety record. On Tuesday, Haruo Hayashizaki, a 71-year-old retiree, poured a flammable liquid over himself and lit it while riding a bullet train heading to Osaka from Tokyo. Experts say it was a wake-up call to something more disastrous, potentially a terrorist attack, and it's time to step up risk management ahead of the G-7 summit in Japan next year and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

  • Greek villagers' secret weapon: Grow your own food

    Ilias Mathes has protection against bank closures, capital controls and the slashing of his pension: 10 goats, some hens and a vegetable patch. If Greece's financial crisis deepens, as many believe it must, he can feed his children and grandchildren with the bounty of the land in this proud village high in the mountains of the Arcadia Peloponnese. "I have my lettuce, my onions, I have my hens, my birds, I will manage," he said, even though he can no longer access his full pension payment because of government controls imposed six days ago.

  • Italy no longer Greece's 'companion in misfortune': Renzi

    Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said Saturday that his country is no longer a "companion in misfortune" of debt-wracked Greece, as it was three or four years ago. "We need to stop calling Italy the sick man of Europe, because it's no longer true," Renzi told Italian television channel TG5, on the eve of Greece's crucial referendum which could determine the country's financial future and even its place in the eurozone. Renzi said that Italy is no longer afraid of the consequences of Greece's financial woes -- unlike during the 2011 crisis when fears were high of contagion spreading from the Greek crisis to many other heavily-indebted European nations.

  • Lauda swapped trophies for free car washes

    By Alan Baldwin SILVERSTONE, England, (Reuters) - Triple world champion Niki Lauda agrees with Lewis Hamilton's comments about 'ugly' Formula One trophies but says they were so bad in his day that he swapped them for a lifetime of free car washes. "I binned them all, you're absolutely right, because in my time they were most of them ugly and for me useless," said the Austrian, now non-executive chairman of Hamilton's Mercedes team. "On this point of view Lewis is right because the trophy should have a certain value when you look at them, that you like them," Lauda told BBC radio at the British Grand Prix on Saturday.

  • Could searchers' sonars have missed wreckage of Flight 370?

    Amid rising frustrations over the expensive, so-far fruitless search for vanished Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, experts are questioning the competence of the company in charge, including whether crews may have passed over the sunken wreckage without even noticing. There are also calls for the government to release the growing mountain of sonar data collected so far, which skeptics say could show whether searchers have overlooked holes in the dragnet big enough to conceal a fragmented Boeing 777. "It strikes me as odd that you're hiring a company that doesn't have the assets, doesn't have the track record," said Steven Saint Amour, an aircraft recovery expert based in Annapolis, Maryland.
