People browse booths at a military veterans' job fair in CarsonBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. job growth slowed in August, but the unemployment rate dropped to a near 7-1/2-year low and wages accelerated, keeping alive prospects of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike later this month. Nonfarm payrolls increased 173,000 last month after an upwardly revised gain of 245,000 in July, the Labor Department said on Friday. August's gain was the smallest in five months as the factory sector lost the most jobs since July 2013.

A trader works on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the market opened in New YorkMany investors viewed those data points as contradictory signals about the urgency to increase interest rates. Near-zero rates have allowed the U.S. stock market to almost triple from the depths of the financial crisis in 2009. Many on Wall Street hope recent global market turmoil and worries about China's economy will lead the Fed to hold off raising rates when it meets on Sept. 16-17.

Federal Reserve building in WashingtonBy Jonathan Spicer and Jason Lange NEW YORK/RICHMOND, Va. (Reuters) - The latest U.S. jobs report was not definitively good or bad enough to help the Federal Reserve decide whether to raise interest rates later this month, leaving the decision hanging on volatility in financial markets over the next couple of weeks. The economy added 173,000 jobs in August, quite a bit fewer than expected. With global financial markets reeling over the last two weeks over fears of a Chinese economic slowdown, the report is probably the best and last direct reading on the economy before Fed officials consider hiking rates at a Sept. 16-17 meeting.

Bernard Madoff departs US Federal Court after a hearing in New YorkFive former Geneva wealth managers have paid "substantial compensation" to settle criminal complaints brought by clients whose assets they had invested with U.S. fraudster Bernard Madoff, the Geneva prosecutor's office said on Friday. The case was launched in 2009 against five directors of Aurelia Finance, a Geneva-based private bank that prosecutors said had lost up to $800 million of clients' money by investing in Madoff's "Ponzi" scheme, which used money from new investors to pay existing clients. The five men - Vladimir Stepczynski, Pascal Cattaneo, Olivier Ador, Laurent Mathysen-Gerst and Jean-Marc Wenger - were charged with criminal mismanagement of client money by putting too many assets into a Madoff "feeder fund".

An investor stands in front of an electronic board showing stock information at a brokerage house in Shanghai,By Jan Strupczewski and Randall Palmer ANKARA (Reuters) - World financial leaders will agree to calibrate and communicate monetary policy carefully to avoid triggering capital flight, but will not call an expected U.S. rate rise a risk to growth, a draft communique showed on Friday. Many emerging market economies are concerned that when the U.S. Federal Reserve raises borrowing costs, investors will withdraw from other markets and buy dollar assets, weakening other currencies and creating turbulence as capital flees. Officials from emerging markets wanted the communique from finance ministers and central bank governors of the Group of 20 biggest economies, meeting in Turkey, to say that a U.S. rate rise now would be a risk to growth.

Migrants and refugees wait for a registration procedure after crossing the Macedonian-Greek border near Gevgelija, MacedoniaBy Rodi Said and Krisztina Than KOBANI, Syria/ROSZKE, Hungary (Reuters) - - A Syrian father on Friday buried his wife and two little boys, drowned as they tried to flee to Europe, while hundreds of migrants fled from a detention camp and escaped a train stranded under police siege in Hungary. Hungary's hardline leader said Europeans could end up a minority on their own continent as a crackdown appeared to crumble in his own country, the main entry point for tens of thousands of refugees and migrants reaching the EU by land over the Balkan peninsula. Hungary has canceled all trains to western Europe to prevent migrants from traveling on and seeking sanctuary in richer countries north and west.

By Mari Saito SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc is adding staff for a new division dedicated to restaurants in Seattle and New York, with indications the unit is trying to rapidly expand a meal delivery service, according to posts on LinkedIn and the company's jobs site. Amazon, which declined to comment on Friday, is best known as a place to buy millions of products including books and electronics. The online retailer has dabbled in food delivery before but its move to form a dedicated division called Amazon Restaurants could mean it is preparing to enter the increasingly crowded meal delivery market and compete against well-established players like GrubHub Inc. The exact purpose of the division is unclear but the job description of at least one employee in the unit suggests Amazon is interested in expanding restaurant delivery services beyond Seattle, where recent media reports say the company is already testing its own meal delivery program.

I spent some time with the device earlier this week, and I posted my hands-on Gear S2 preview on Thursday.

Paralysis is one condition modern medicine has yet to overcome, but many research projects are looking at ways of restoring mobility to accident victims. In fact, such research recently allowed one man who was completely paralyzed from the waist down to walk again with the help of specialized neurostimulation and an exoskeleton. The interesting part is that the man, a former athlete who lost his sight in 1998 and then broke his spine in 2010, was able to control his muscles using help from the new technology.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks during a press conference after talking about her strategy for rural America during a campaign stop at the FFA Enrichment Center at the Des Moines Area Community College in Ankeny, IowaBy Alistair Bell and Susan Heavey WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Friday she was sorry that her use of a personal email account while secretary of state had caused confusion, and blamed herself for "not thinking a lot" about the matter when she took the job. In her most contrite comments yet about an issue that has plagued her White House bid, Clinton said she had made a mistake by not using a government email account. Clinton, front-runner to be the Democratic Party nominee in the November 2016 election, has faced steady criticism from political opponents since it emerged in March that she used her own email account on an unsecured private server in her New York home for official business.

Cardin addresses the AIPAC policy conference in WashingtonBy Patricia Zengerle WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Ben Cardin said on Friday he would vote against the nuclear agreement with Iran, lessening the chances that President Barack Obama can win enough votes to avoid having to use his veto power to protect the international agreement. "This is a close call, but after a lengthy review, I will vote to disapprove the deal," Cardin, the top Democrat on the influential Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in an opinion column to be published in The Washington Post. The Maryland lawmaker became the third Senate Democrat to announce his opposition.

U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump speaks during a press availability after signing a pledge with the RNC at Trump Tower in Manhattan, New YorkBy Susan Heavey WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump showed again on Friday he will not easily be bound to party orthodoxy, breaking from many of his rival's policy stances on issues from the Iran nuclear deal to the gay marriage fight in Kentucky. In an interview with MSNBC, one day after signing the party's loyalty pledge to not run as an independent, Trump said he would work with the Obama administration's nuclear agreement with Iran, nevertheless calling it "a disastrous deal" and "a horrible contract." Many of the 16 other Republicans seeking the party's nomination for the 2016 presidential election have vowed to undo the agreement. "I love to buy bad contracts where key people go bust, and I make those contracts good," he said, adding that he would strictly enforce the Iran deal.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell leaves the Federal District Courthouse on August 12, 2015, in New York, after being questioned by Judge Richard M. Berman about Tom Brady's four-game suspension for his role in the "deflate-gate" scandalNFL owners are prepared to discuss changing commissioner Roger Goodell's role in player discipline after yet another courtroom defeat, the Washington Post reported on Friday. US federal judge Richard Berman overturned Goodell's four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on Thursday, citing "several legal deficiencies" in how Goodell handled the investigation of underinflated Patriots footballs and how Brady's appeal of the punishment was conducted.

PGA: Deutsche Bank Championship - First RoundRed-hot Jason Day kept his spectacular run of form going as he moved into contention for the Deutsche Bank Championship on Friday as world number two Jordan Spieth struggled for a second week in a row. Day, seeking a fourth PGA Tour victory in five starts to strengthen his grip at the top of the FedExCup standings, carded a three-under-par 68 on a tricky day for scoring at the TPC Boston to end the first round one stroke off the early lead. The 27-year-old Australian, who won the opener in the lucrative four-event playoff series by six shots at The Barclays last week, birdied five of his first 13 holes to set the tournament pace before slipping back with two late bogeys.

Goodell exits the Manhattan Federal Courthouse in New York(Reuters) - National Football League team owners are planning to re-evaluate Commissioner Roger Goodell's role in player discipline after his "Deflategate" ruling was overturned by a federal judge, according to a report on Friday. The Washington Post, which cited several people familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity, reported that it was uncertain whether Goodell's role in meting out discipline would be reduced. The report was published a day after a federal judge threw out Goodell's four-game ban of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady over his alleged role in a scheme to deflate footballs used in a playoff victory last season.

MLB: San Francisco Giants at Colorado Rockies(The Sports Xchange) - Carlos Gonzalez continued his home run barrage and Chris Rusin threw a complete game Thursday night as the Colorado Rockies pounded the fading San Francisco Giants 11-3. Gonzalez, who hit two homers and had seven RBIs on Wednesday, hit a two-run homer in the Rockies' four-run first and belted another two-run shot in the four-run third as the Rockies strafed starter Ryan Vogelsong. "I just stunk," said Vogelsong (9-11) who left after the first three batters reached base in the fourth and allowed a career-high tying 11 hits and eight runs.

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Milwaukee Brewers(The Sports Xchange) - The Milwaukee Brewers finished off a three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates - their second of the season - with a 5-3 victory Thursday night at Miller Park, which has been nothing short of a house of horrors for the Pirates since it opened in 2001. Pittsburgh is 84-41 at the stadium but, after Thursday, is just 17-61 since the 2007 season. This year alone, the Pirates dropped seven of nine meetings there, exactly the same number that separates them from the Cardinals in the standings.

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Kansas City Royals(The Sports Xchange) - Kendrys Morales stroked four hits and drove in four runs and Lorenzo Cain hit a three-run homer as the Kansas City Royals outslugged the Detroit Tigers 15-7 in a game lasting two minutes shy of four hours Thursday night. Designated hitter Morales, who hit a two-run double in a six-run seventh to break the game open, upped his RBI total to 98, which ranks second in the American League. Center fielder Cain, who extended his hitting streak to 11 games, was one of six Royals with a multi-hit game.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady leaves Federal District Courthouse August 12, 2015 in New YorkA US judge's decision to strike down New England Patriots Tom Brady's four-game "Deflate-gate" suspension means the superstar quarterback can play in the National Football League's season opener next Thursday. The ruling by US District Judge Richard Berman not only paves the way for Brady to take the field against the Pittsburgh Steelers but it is also a public relations embarrassment for commissioner Roger Goodell and calls into question his role as the league's ultimate authority. "Brady's four-game suspension is vacated, effective immediately," Berman ruled after failing in his effort to induce the warring sides to reach a settlement.

The National Football League has managed to flourish through a number of highly-publicized fiascoes in recent years and sports experts expect more of the same despite a months-long battle with its most popular player. Quarterback Tom Brady had his four-game suspension tossed out by a judge on Thursday and the ordeal may prove to be a boon for the NFL when his New England Patriots open the 2015 regular season next week. "Typically, when you look at almost every bad thing or everything that would be negative or is to be avoided in sports they almost never affect the bottom line," Robert Boland, professor of sports law at Ohio University, told Reuters.

This type of intimate partner violence is called ‘reproductive coercion,’ and health care providers should know how to screen for it and intervene effectively, the authors write. “Ultimately, (reproductive coercion) is about power and control - the perpetrators get off on that feeling of having complete power over their partners, even to thepoint of controlling a bodily function exclusive to women: pregnancy,” said lead author Dr. Jeanna Park of the University of Illinois in Chicago.

Infectious disease experts say they cannot pinpoint a single reason for the surge, but believe a combination of factors is at play, including an aging population that is more vulnerable to illness, better diagnostics, increased awareness of the disease, and possibly environmental factors.

By Ben Gruber Gloucester, Mass. (Reuters) - Snotbot is a drone whose name describes it perfectly, it's a robot that collects snot, specifically whale snot. Up until now, gathering samples for whale research involved shooting darts that penetrated the body. Instead of shooting darts at a whale for biopsy samples, a whale can unknowingly shoot snot at a drone.  "We believe that whale snot or exhaled breath condensate is going to be the golden egg of data from a whale.

File photo of United Launch Alliance rocket launching from Vandenberg Air Force Base in CaliforniaBy Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Reuters) - A key instrument on a $1 billion NASA satellite has failed, reducing scientists' ability to capture data to measure the moisture in Earth's soil in order to improve flood forecasting and monitor climate change, officials said on Thursday. A second instrument remains operational aboard the 2,100-pound (950-kg) Soil Moisture Active Passive satellite, though its level of detail is far more limited. The satellite's high-powered radar system, capable of collecting data in swaths of land as small as about 2 miles (3 km) across, failed in July after less than three months in operation, NASA said.

Using Loopholes, Nature May Save Galápagos Penguins (Op-Ed)A recent study published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters found that wind-pattern changes in the tropical Pacific, together with the Galápagos Islands' location, has resulted in a shift in ocean currents. The prevailing trade winds from the southeast drive a westward surface current and bring up cold waters, ranging from 73 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit (23 to 25 degrees Celsius), in the eastern equatorial Pacific from the Galápagos toward the international date line. The westward surface current piles up water from west of the date line all the way to New Guinea, resulting in a downhill flow of current below the surface back toward the Galápagos.

The Moon Hits a Cosmic Bull's Eye Tonight: How to See ItIf you live in the eastern-third of the United States or southeast Canada and your local skies are clear on tonight (Sept. 4), take a good close look at the rising moon, which has a celestial date with a star this evening. The moon will appear 52-percent illuminated and be just hours before it reaches last quarter phase.  If the bright star Aldebaran isn't right next to the moon, it may be directly behind the lunar disk and about to pop back out. Weather permitting, at least some stage of this occultation can be seen by North American observers living east and north of a line running from Duluth, Minnesota to Miami, Florida.

The Science of Adorable: What It Takes to Win #CuteOffScience Twitter has gone full squee. "I don't generally think of fish as cute, but there were some alarmingly cute fish," said Anne Hilborn, a doctoral student and cheetah researcher at Virginia Tech who helped launch the hashtag. Based on the types of animals posted — and previous scientific research on adorableness — here are seven features that could help an animal win a cuteness contest.

By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - Giving cheap aspirin to cancer patients may turbo-charge the effectiveness of expensive new medicines that help their immune systems fight tumours, experiments on mice suggest. Immunotherapy promises to revolutionise cancer care by offering a better, longer-lasting response with fewer adverse side effects than conventional treatment, but the new drugs do not work well in all cases. One reason is that cancer cells often produce large amounts of the molecule prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), which turns down the immune system's normal attack response to tumour cells, according to scientists at London's new Francis Crick Institute.

Abnormal bone formation in soft tissue, a process known as heterotopic ossification, in the hindlimb region of a mouse model of fibrodysplasia ossificans progressivaBy Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - Scientists at U.S. biotechnology company Regeneron Pharmaceuticals researching a rare genetic disease that traps sufferers in a second skeleton have discovered a treatment that shuts down excessive bone growth in mice engineered to develop the illness. Company scientists said on Wednesday the protein Activin-A, which normally blocks bone growth, triggers hyperactive bone growth in patients with a genetic mutation that causes the disease. The disease is known as Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva, or FOP.

The VP said he is still weighing whether he and his family have the "emotional energy" for another campaign -- especially after Biden's son Beau passed away.
