  • Searcher says wing find won't change MH370 seabed search

    The discovery of a piece of aircraft wing on an island in the western Indian Ocean is unlikely to alter the seabed search for a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner in the southern Indian Ocean, the search leader said Thursday. Air safety investigators are examining aircraft debris found on Reunion Island just off Madagascar to see if it is part of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that disappeared on March 8 last year. Australian Transport Safety Bureau Chief Commissioner Martin Dolan, who heads the seabed search, said searchers' drift modelling indicated that debris could have floated to the island from where they believed the missing plane crashed 1,800 kilometers (1,100 miles) southwest of Australia.

  • A critical unknown is emerging in the Iran deal

    One of the big unanswered questions regarding the historic nuclear deal between a US-led group of countries and Iran had to do with the status of a side agreement reached between the International Atomic Energy Agency and Tehran.

    USA Swimming was rubbing its hands with glee when it announced a squad packed full of gold medal winners and record breakers for the 2015 world championships, but that was a year ago and the team that lands in Kazan may need time to fire on all cylinders. Twelve months can be an eternity in the pool and while Katie Ledecky and Ryan Lochte take huge reputations to Russia, the form they were in then and where they are now are likely to be poles apart. Normally U.S. teams arrive at major global meets battle hardened and razor sharp from do-or-die qualifying events but for Kazan, a group picked from results at last year's national and Pan Pacific championships has left swimmers idling.
