  • Europa League champs Sevilla face struggle to keep top talent

    By Toby Davis WARSAW (Reuters) - Sevilla further underlined their European pedigree with a record fourth Europa League title but now face the more daunting task of converting their continental success into a challenge for domestic honours. While Wednesday's 3-2 win over Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk proved that when it comes to Europe's second tier competition, they are the undisputed top dogs, having won all of their titles in the last nine years, Sevilla still remain little more than also-rans in La Liga. Unai Emery's side showed attacking flare in abundance, scoring 29 goals in 15 games en route to lifting the trophy in Warsaw's National Stadium.

  • U.S. hopes Chinese island-building will spur Asian response

    By David Alexander WASHINGTON (Reuters) - By releasing video of Beijing’s island reclamation work and considering more assertive maritime actions, the United States is signaling a tougher stance over the South China Sea and trying to spur Asian partners to more action. The release last week of the surveillance plane footage - showing dredgers and other ships busily turning remote outcrops into islands with runways and harbors - helps ensure the issue will dominate an Asian security forum starting on Friday attended by U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter as well as senior Chinese military officials. As it pushes ahead with a military “pivot” to Asia partly aimed at countering China, Washington wants Southeast Asian nations to take a more united stance against China's rapid acceleration this year of construction on disputed reefs.

  • Massive coal breaker, Pennsylvania's last, is coming down

    When coal was king, its castle was the breaker — an imposing fortress that crushed, washed and sized billions of tons of Pennsylvania anthracite for use in factories, foundries and homes up and down the East Coast. The breakers gradually disappeared as anthracite production began a long, steady decline after World War I. Today, only one breaker built during the historic era of anthracite mining remains standing — and now that, too, is coming down. The St. Nicholas Breaker once held the distinction as the largest in the world, the size of a city block and capable of processing more than 12,000 tons of anthracite each day.
