The brief but intense campaign in Greece's critical bailout referendum ends Friday, with simultaneous rallies in Athens supporting "yes" and "no" answers to a murky question in what an opinion poll suggests could be a very close vote. (AP Photo/Thanassis Stavrakis)LONDON (AP) — The Greek people are voting on a future in which they face two painful prospects: the slow grind of years more of austerity cuts or the country's potentially catastrophic exit from the 19-nation eurozone.

People check voting information outside a polling station during the Greek referendum in Thessaloniki, on July 5, 2015Polling stations were open across the country of 11 million people -- on far-flung Aegean islands, in the shadow of the 2,400-year-old Parthenon in Athens, to the northern border shared with fellow EU state Bulgaria. The European Union and international investors were intently watching the poll, which was the biggest challenge to the European single currency since it came into being in 1999 and was adopted by Greece two years later. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras insists a 'No' victory would strengthen his hand in negotiations with the country's international creditors.

An investor is reflected on an electronic board showing stock information at a brokerage house in ShanghaiBEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Beijing intensified efforts at the weekend to pull China's stock markets out of a nose-dive that is threatening the world's second-largest economy, with top brokerages pledging to buy massive amounts of shares and a report that the government has set up a market stabilization fund. Beijing has also suspended new share offers in an attempt to take pressure off the market after a 30 percent plunge in three weeks, the Wall Street Journal said. The reported suspension of initial public offers (IPOs) came a few hours after extraordinary announcements by major brokers and fund managers, which collectively pledged to invest at least $19 billion of their own money into stocks.

The allegations have set off a storm in Malaysia, with premier Najib Razak threatening to sue the Wall Street Journal for publishing the report, while one of his deputies called on authorities to investigate the claims. Attorney General Abdul Gani Patail said in a statement late on Saturday that a multi-agency task force was probing "the allegations linked to the flow of funds into the personal accounts of Prime Minister Najib Razak".

File photo of humanoid robots working side by side with employees in the assembly line at a factory of Glory Ltd., a manufacturer of automatic change dispensers, in Kazo, north of TokyoBy Leika Kihara and Kaori Kaneko TOKYO (Reuters) - Factory worker Satomi Iwata has new co-workers, a troupe of humanoid automata that are helping to address two of Japan's most pressing concerns - a shortage of labor and a need for growth. The 19 robots, which cost her employer Glory Ltd about 7.4 million yen ($60,000) each, have eye-like sensors and two arms that assemble made-to-order change dispensers alongside their human colleagues in a factory employing 370. Glory is in the vanguard as Japanese firms ramp up spending on robotics and automation, responding at last to premier Shinzo Abe's efforts to stimulate the economy and end two decades of stagnation and deflation.

A trader points up at a display on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeHealth insurer Aetna Inc on Friday said it would buy smaller rival Humana Inc for about $37 billion in cash and stock, in the largest ever deal in the insurance industry. The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd announced it was buying Chubb Corp for $28 billion.

Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif, Head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization Salehi and Fereydoon, brother and close aide to President Hassan Rouhani meet with U.S. Secretary of State Kerry in ViennaBy Louis Charbonneau and John Irish VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran and world powers made progress on future sanctions relief for Iran in marathon nuclear talks on Saturday, but remained divided on issues such as lifting United Nations sanctions and the development of advanced centrifuges. Diplomats close to the negotiations said they had tentative agreement on a mechanism for suspending U.S. and European Union sanctions on Iran. "We don't have Iran on board yet." Senior Iranian and Western diplomats echoed the remarks.

By Peter Murphy BOGOTA (Reuters) - Colombia's peace negotiations with leftist FARC rebels have hit a critical low as the group steps up violent attacks and the government could walk away from the process unless the group shows more commitment, the government's top negotiator said. The government has been in Cuba-hosted talks with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia or FARC since late 2012 to end a 50-year war. "The peace process is at its worst moment since we began talks ... I want to tell the FARC in all seriousness, this could end.

Indeed, Manila's international legal team was heading to the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague to initially argue that the five-judge panel has jurisdiction to hear the case, Philippine Foreign Ministry officials told Reuters. A little-noticed decision by the tribunal's panel in April acknowledged China's objections and announced that a hearing on jurisdiction from July 7-13 would be held first.

Nearly all major subreddits are back online following Reddit protestsJust a day after a massive revolt tore down parts of Reddit, the site now appears to be mostly back to normal. Most all major subreddits are back online after volunteer moderators (who run subreddits without direct control from the company) began setting hundreds of popular subreddits to private mode on Thursday and Friday, shutting out nearly all visitors. The protests accomplished its goal — the uprising at Reddit gained international media attention, including articles from The New York Times, The Guardian, Time, and the BBC — and it appears moderators decided there was little benefit in continuing to keep their subreddits offline.

First trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode shows a new take on iconic universeTelltale Games is getting closer to releasing its all-new take on the Minecraft universe. The trailer was released at Minecon 2015 today in London, and it gives us a taste of how Telltale has worked together with Mojang to explore Minecraft from a new perspective. Like other games from the developer (The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones) it will be a narrative driven game — more like a point-and-click title than a traditional action game.

The Weekender: Terminator Genisys, SpaceX, and smart condomsThis week, we talked to the director of Terminator Genisys, we found out about the future of hydrogen fuel cells, and SpaceX made a mistake. Some of the most impressive parts of Terminator Genisys are its throwbacks to prior films, but legal issues barred the crew from actually using original Terminator footage. Hydrogen fuel cells are beginning to gain traction, but they'll face similar hurdles to electric cars when it comes to getting them on the road and keeping their metaphorical tanks full.

Former United States Secretary of State and Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton greets supporters during a campaign event in GlenBy Amanda Becker GLEN, N.H. (Reuters) - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused China on Saturday of stealing commercial secrets and "huge amounts of government information," and of trying to "hack into everything that doesn't move in America." Clinton's language on China appeared to be far stronger than that usually used by President Barack Obama's Democratic administration. Speaking at a campaign event in New Hampshire, Clinton said she wanted to see China's peaceful rise. "But we also have to be fully vigilant, China's military is growing very quickly, they're establishing military installations that again threaten countries we have treaties with, like the Philippines because they are building on contested property," said Clinton, who was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

"That's why we have to be much smarter in how we deal with Putin and how we deal with his ambitions," Clinton said at a campaign event. "He's not an easy man ... But I don't think there is any substitute other than constant engagement." (Reporting by Amanda Becker; Writing by Eric Beech; Editing by Sandra Maler)

Supporters of gay marriage rally after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the U.S. Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marryBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's administration was unexpectedly on the winning side in nearly all the close, politically significant Supreme Court cases decided in the term that ended this week, including blockbuster rulings on Obamacare and gay marriage. The run of victories ran counter to the administration's recent mixed record. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, the Democratic administration's top Supreme Court advocate, and his team of Justice Department lawyers successfully defended Obama's signature healthcare law from a conservative legal challenge and argued on the winning side of the court's ruling legalizing gay marriage nationwide.

Bowe Bergdahl Charged With Desertion, Could Face LifeAmerican soldier and former Taliban captive Bowe Bergdahl has been charged with desertion over his disappearance from an Afghan outpost in 2009 and could face life in confinement, the Army announced today. As part of the deal, the Taliban five were relocated to Qatar.

Lawmakers to Question Top Officials about Controversial Visa Program for Wealthy ForeignersRepublicans in Congress voiced strong objections Tuesday in response to a scathing Homeland Security investigation that found a senior official appeared to give special treatment to politically-connected applicants when he ran a little-known federal program that offers visas to those who invest $500,000 in a job-creating business. U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, the committee chairman, said he viewed the findings of the Homeland Security Inspector General “extremely concerning” and said he will hold hearings Thursday to determine if further investigation is needed. The Inspector General’s investigation focused on the leadership of Alejandro Mayorkas, who served as director of the immigration program known as EB-5, an obscure but increasingly popular method for obtaining highly-sought-after American Green Cards. In late 2013, Mayorkas was promoted by President Obama to Deputy Secretary of the department over objections from Republicans who had already begun to hear rumblings of problems with his handling of the immigration program.

A young girl operated after suffering noma disease, poses for a photo at the health centre of the NGO Sentinelles, in Zinder, southern NigerMourdja's nose has been eaten away, like one lip and part of her upper gum, leaving the 13-year-old girl atrociously disfigured by noma, a disease that thrives on malnutrition. "It was better before," the teenager says shyly and simply in the arid heartland of Niger, one of the world's poorest nations, clearly ill at ease and fiddling with her bracelets. "The problem is that this is a very fast-acting disease," says nurse Fati Badamasi, who works for the Swiss NGO Sentinelles, active in Niger since 1992.

Vendors and marijuana enthusiasts gather at the "Weed the People" event to celebrate the legalization of recreational use of marijuana in Portland, OregonMore than a thousand marijuana enthusiasts and entrepreneurs met in Oregon on Friday to swap samples, contacts and business tips in hopes of profiting from the state's new law allowing the recreational use of pot. Licensed growers handed out free tastes, gardening experts displayed organic plant food and artists sold marijuana pipes to participants at the "Weed the People" event. “Cannabis is a great opportunity for us," said D.J. King, a labor organizer with the United Food and Commercial Workers who wants to unionize workers at marijuana grow operations, distributors and retailers.

Swiss pilot Piccard takes a selfie in the Solar Impulse 2 plane during the 6th leg of the round the world trip from Chongqing to Nanjing(Reuters) - A Swiss man attempting to circumnavigate the globe with an aircraft powered only by the sun's energy landed in Hawaii on Friday, after a record-breaking five-day nonstop solo flight across the Pacific Ocean from Japan. The Solar Impulse 2 is the first aircraft to fly day and night without any fuel. Pilot Andre Borschberg's 120-hour voyage shattered the 76-hour record for nonstop flight by late American adventurer Steve Fossett in 2006 on the Virgin Atlantic Global Flyer.

A Russian Progress spacecraft blasts off from the launch pad at the Baikonur cosmodromeBy Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Reuters) - A Russian Soyuz rocket blasted off on Friday to deliver a cargo ship loaded with food, water and equipment to the International Space Station, breaking a string of launch failures, a NASA TV broadcast showed. The Progress capsule, carrying more than three tons (2,700 kg) of supplies, was expected to reach the orbiting outpost on Sunday following launch at 12:55 a.m. EDT from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. “All of the systems on the Progress (are) in excellent shape,” said NASA launch commentator Rob Navias.

An undated illustration shows a group of woolly mammoths, the huge Ice Age mammalsBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Woolly mammoths spent their lives enduring extreme Arctic conditions including frigid temperatures, an arid environment and the relentless cycle of dark winters and bright summers. An exhaustive genetic analysis of these bygone Ice Age giants and their living cousins, Asian and African elephants, has revealed a slew of genetic adaptations that enabled woolly mammoths to thrive for eons in such adverse circumstances. The study, published on Thursday in the journal Cell Reports, compared the genomes of two mammoths whose remains were found in permafrost in northeastern Siberia, one 18,500 years old and the other 60,000 years old, with genomes of three Asian elephants and one African elephant.

An unmanned Space Exploration Technologies Falcon 9 rocket launches in Cape CanaveralBy Irene Klotz and Andrea Shalal CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla./WASHINGTON (Reuters) - SpaceX can compete to launch a U.S. Global Positioning System satellite despite a Falcon 9 rocket accident this weekend, the Air Force said on Wednesday. “SpaceX remains certified and can compete for the upcoming GPS III launch service,” Lt. General Samuel Greaves, who heads the Air Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center, wrote in an email to Reuters. The Air Force plans to release a solicitation for launch service proposals this month, the first time SpaceX, which is owned and operated by technology entrepreneur Elon Musk, will be eligible to compete against United Launch Alliance (ULA).

Authors of study on memory seen in undated handoutBy Will Dunham WASHINGTON (Reuters) - With a little help from Clint Eastwood, Jennifer Aniston and Josh Brolin - or at least photos of them - scientists have gained a new understanding of how memories of everyday events are formed in the brain. Researchers said on Wednesday a study involving people with electrodes implanted in their brains has shown that individual neurons in a region called the medial temporal lobe play a central role in swiftly forming these memories. The devices also enabled the researchers to pinpoint individual neurons that encoded memories.

Colorful Arctic Animals Revealed in Thousands of Undersea ImagesNew photographs of fluorescent sea creatures — including bright orange animals that resemble feather dusters with long, skinny handles, and spongy, neon-pink anemones — on the Arctic seafloor could help researchers determine how much methane, a potent greenhouse gas, will make its way to the atmosphere and contribute to climate change. It's amazing," said Guiliana Panieri, a scientist on the photo-taking expedition and a professor in environment and climate at The Arctic University of Norway. The colorful sea creatures live near methane seeps, or cracks in the ocean floor that naturally release methane.

The return of Ebola in Liberia — with three new cases reported this week in the previously Ebola-free country — is worrisome, and raises questions about whether Liberia was really free of the disease to begin with, experts say. Liberian health officials reported the death of a 17-year-old boy from Ebola on Sunday, and two other cases of Ebola in people who were with the boy when he died, according to ABC News. The new cases are the first in Liberia since the country was declared free of the disease on May 9.

By Laurie Goering LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - As Germany and Spain sweated and London sweltered through its hottest July day on record this week, scientists said it is "virtually certain" that climate change is increasing the likelihood of such heat waves in Europe. In real-time data analysis released on Friday, a team of international climate scientists from universities, meteorological services and research organizations said the kind of heat waves hitting Europe this week – defined as three-day periods of excessive heat – are becoming much more frequent in the region. In De Bilt in the Netherlands, for example, a heat wave like the one forecast for the next few days would have been a roughly 1-in-30-years event in the 1900s, according to the scientists.

Seabirds Smell Their Way HomeBy assessing bird flight patterns, a team of scientists has found evidence supporting the idea that seabirds navigate using smell. This is the "first direct evidence that seabirds use odor maps to navigate over vast expanses of visually featureless oceans to locate preferred grounds, and then to return home and pinpoint their breeding colony," said Andrew Reynolds, lead author of the new study detailing the findings. Reynolds is a research scientist in the Department of Computational and Systems Biology at Rothamsted Research, an agricultural research center in the United Kingdom.

A handout photo of an endangered gray wolf(Reuters) - A coalition of environmental groups filed a lawsuit on Thursday against U.S. wildlife officials arguing that the government's management plan for the endangered Mexican gray wolf, one of the most imperiled mammals in North America, does not go far enough. The Western Environmental Law Center filed the suit on behalf of several organizations in a federal Arizona court, alleging the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's plans for the wolves violate the Endangered Species Act and other laws. "Unfortunately, politics supplants wildlife biology in key parts of the USFWS Mexican gray wolf plan," attorney John Mellgren of the Western Environmental Law Center said in a statement.

Tourists look at a map as they stand at Syntagma square in front of the parliament in central Athens, on Saturday, July 4, 2015. Whether Greeks decide in Sunday's referendum to accept their lenders' bailout deal or reject it, the government's hold on power may be shakier than its brash prime minister has calculated, analysts say. (AP Photo/Petros Karadjias)Greeks started casting ballots early Sunday in the closely watched bailout referendum, with opinion polls showing people evenly split on whether to accept creditors' proposals for more austerity in exchange for rescue loans, or defiantly reject the deal.

Dimitra Danikoglou, 48, gestures as she talks next to her son Nikolas, 23, at their apartment in Athens, Saturday, July 4, 2015. Meet the Danikoglous, a typically intense, articulate Greek family divided over how best to cope with Greece’s careening financial crisis, which may lead to a break with the eurozone and the European Union if voters Sunday say “no” to a proposed bailout plan that would impose still more years of austerity on an already crushed Greek economy. They are united in their belief that only as a strong family can they weather the coming storm. And they share a sense that Greece, so rich with history and culture, has fallen tragically short of its potential. (AP Photo/Spyros Tsakiris)ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Dimitris is voting "yes" because he fears Greece would be in danger if it leaves the European Union. His daughter Alexandra is voting "no" because she is tired of richer European nations bossing Greece around.

A Tunisian special force officer and a policeman patrol the beach as tourists take part in a ceremony on July 3, 2015, in memory of those killed the previous week by a jihadist gunman in the popular resort of Port el KantaouiPresident Beji Caid Essebsi on Saturday declared a state of emergency following last week's beach massacre claimed by jihadists that he said had left Tunisia facing a "special type of war". In a televised address to the nation, Essebsi said the state of emergency, effective from Saturday for a 30-day period, was decided on after consultations with the parliament speaker and prime minister. A state of emergency, granting special powers to the police and army, was in force for three years up until March 2014, following longtime secular president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's ouster in a 2011 revolution.
