|Gun control support fades three months after Florida massacre: Reuters/Ipsos poll|
|Wed, 23 May 2018 12:53:58 -0400|
By Daniel Trotta NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Parkland, Florida, school massacre has had little lasting impact on U.S. views on gun control, three months after the shooting deaths of 17 people propelled a national movement by some student survivors, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Wednesday. While U.S. public support for more gun control measures has grown slowly but steadily over the years, it typically spikes immediately after the mass shootings that have become part of the U.S. landscape, then falls back to pre-massacre levels within a few months. The poll found that 69 percent of American adults supported strong or moderate regulations or restrictions for firearms, down from 75 percent in late March, when the first poll was conducted following the Valentine's Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
|A Planner's Guide to the Mediterranean Diet|

2018 might well be dubbed the year of the Mediterranean diet. Not only did it tie for the best overall diet in the U.S. News Best Diets rankings in January, but this year also marks the Mediterranean diet pyramid's 25th anniversary. Beyond being linked to a host of powerful health benefits including a reduction in heart disease risk, potential weight loss, improved brain health and longevity, much of the eating pattern's staying power can be attributed to its flexibility -- there aren't entire food groups excluded, and followers don't calorie count or track macros.

|Georgia makes history with Stacey Abrams, the first black female nominee for governor|
|Wed, 23 May 2018 10:59:56 -0400|
Georgia could be set to elect the first black female governor in US history after lawyer Stacey Abrams won the Democratic primary for the race. Ms Abrams has already made history as both the first black candidate and the first woman to be nominated by a major party in the southern state. The 44-year-old lawyer will face a Republican candidate in November's high-stakes election. A Democrat has not been elected governor in the deeply conservative state since 2003. Ms Abrams, who won 75 per cent of the vote in Tuesday's Democratic primary, said: “We are writing the next chapter of Georgia’s history, where no one is unseen, no one is unheard and no one is uninspired”. President Trump won Georgia, whose capital city Atlanta is a magnet for immigrants from across the world, by just five percentage points in the 2016 presidential race. Ms Abrams is a rising star of the Democrats' progressive wing Credit: AP However Ms Abrams has suggested she is unlikely to target rural white voters who have abandoned the Democratic party, telling voters that attempts to "convert" Republicans into Democrats had previously failed. Three other southern states - Kentucky, Arkansas and Texas - also elected female nominees in Democratic primaries on Tuesday ahead of the midterm elections. The US currently has just six female governors, but the increase in successful female candidates in various political races has been seen in the context of the 'Me Too' and 'Times Up' movements. That was certainly the view of Amy McGrath, a former fighter pilot, who won a Kentucky primary for a seat in the US House of Representatives. "It's more, this time, this climate, right now," she told CNN before her win against Jim Gray, mayor of Lexington. "It's very clear that people are looking for more women." Ms Abrams, who has a law degree from Yale University and a masters from the University of Texas is considered a rising star within Democratic party's progressive faction. Hillary Clinton, whom Ms Abrams strongly backed in the presidential election, recorded a robocall for her ahead of Tuesday's race. A number of other prominent Democrats, including Bernie Sanders and Kirsten Gillibrand, have backed the Georgia nominee. Ms Abrams, who was elected to Georgia's state House of Representative in 2006, has also written eight romantic novels under the pen name Selena Montgomery.

|Amnesty highlights sex-for-food claims in Boko Haram-hit Nigeria|
|Thu, 24 May 2018 04:20:50 -0400|
Amnesty International on Thursday urged Nigeria to act on claims soldiers and members of the civilian militia have raped women and girls in remote camps for people displaced by Boko Haram but the government said the rights monitor was repeating false accusations. Amnesty said it had gathered multiple testimonies about alleged abuse by the security forces, including claimed that soldiers coerced vulnerable survivors into having sex in exchange for food. In November 2016, police vowed to look into allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation in the camps but several months later, the military rejected the allegations.

|Scientists plan DNA hunt for Loch Ness monster next month|
|Wed, 23 May 2018 09:25:27 -0400|
A global team of scientists plans to scour the icy depths of Loch Ness next month using environmental DNA (eDNA) in an experiment that may discover whether Scotland's fabled monster really does, or did, exist. "This DNA can be captured, sequenced and then used to identify that creature by comparing the sequence obtained to large databases of known genetic sequences from hundreds of thousands of different organisms," said team spokesman Professor Neil Gemmell of the University of Otago in New Zealand. The most famous picture of Nessie, known as the "surgeon’s photo", was taken in 1934 and showed a head on a long neck emerging from the water.
