Paris suburb building blast death toll reaches 8

French firemen carry a victim in the rubble of a building after an explosion collapsed it, in Rosny-sous-Bois, outside Paris, Sunday, Aug. 31, 2014. French authorities say a four-story building in a northeastern Paris suburb has collapsed after an explosion, killing a child. More people are thought to underneath the rubble. Speaking on i-Tele, fire department spokesman Gabriel Plus said around 10 people were evacuated from the building in Rosny-sous-bois that occurred early Sunday morning. Plus said that around another 10 people could still be underneath the rubble, and emergency teams were working hard to rescue people who might be trapped. "We could still find living victims in the hours to come," he said. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve has arrived at the scene, but couldn't confirm a theory that the explosion was caused by a gas leak. (AP Photo/Christophe Ena)PARIS (AP) — The death toll in the partial collapse of a four-story apartment building in a Paris suburb has risen to eight after emergency crews pulled the bodies of a man and a woman from the rubble.

Powerful interests want to take down Crist

Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist greets supporters outside the North Miami Public Library in Miami in this file photoBy David Adams MIAMI (Reuters) - When Charlie Crist last governed Florida, his green energy and climate policies made him few friends among the state's powerful electricity corporations. Now, as the Republican-turned Democrat bids to return to the governor's mansion, it may be payback time. Florida's three largest utilities have poured money into the re-election campaign of Republican incumbent Governor Rick Scott in an expensive and closely watched political battle for the nation's largest swing state. ...

Kiev: Ukraine soldiers in battle with Russian tanks in Lugansk

Pro-Russian fighters stand by a T-64 tank in Starobesheve, southeast of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, on August 31, 2014Ukraine's defence minister warned on Monday that a "great war" had broken out with Russia over his country's future that could claim tens of thousands of lives. "A great war has arrived at our doorstep -- the likes of which Europe has not seen since World War II. Unfortunately, the losses in such a war will be measured not in the hundreds but thousands and tens of thousands," Valeriy Geletey wrote in a Facebook post. Russia on Monday again denied either sending or planning to send troops into eastern Ukraine to help separatist rebels pursue their recent counteroffensive against the pro-Western government's forces. Geletey wrote on Monday that "hundreds of Russian soldiers and officers have permanently entered Ukraine's (eastern) 'black earth' region."

MLB: Houston Astros at Texas Rangers(Reuters) - The struggling Houston Astros fired manager Bo Porter and bench coach Dave Trembley on Monday, bringing in Tom Lawless as the interim manager for the rest of the 2014 season. Houston has gone 59-79 this season and lies fourth in the American League West standings with only state rivals, the Texas Rangers, below them.

Ryder Cup wildcard challenge for McGinley and Watson

European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinely talks to the media during a press conference on August 6, 2014 in Louisville, KentuckyRyder Cup captains Paul McGinley and Tom Watson take centre stage on Tuesday when they both name their three wildcard picks to complete their lineups for Gleneagles. McGinley in particular is facing a tough choice with two former world number ones, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald, along with the Ryder Cup hero of two years ago Ian Poulter all failing to make it into the nine automatic qualifying slots. Normally they would all be clearcut picks for the Irishman, but complicating the situation is the good form of Scotland's Stephen Gallacher, who narrowly missed out on supplanting Graeme McDowell in the ninth and final qualifying spot by finishing third on Sunday at the Italian Open. McGinley, who played and missed the cut in Turin, was on hand to see how hard Gallacher battled to make the team and he was full of praise for the 39-year-old who lives just 35 miles from Gleneagles and knows the course better than anyone else among the Ryder Cup hopefuls.

Japan baseball game lasts 4 days and 50 innings

A baseball game in Japan has dragged on for four days with two high school teams slogging it out over a record 50 inningsIn a scenario more usually associated with its cousin, cricket, a baseball game in Japan dragged on for four days with two high school teams slogging it out over a record 50 innings. Chukyo and Sotoku began their slug-fest on Thursday in the semi-final of Japan's high school rubber-ball baseball championship in Akashi, western Japan. It wasn't until Sunday morning that Chukyo's captain broke the deadlock, walloping a double in the record-breaking 50th inning. It also landed Taiga Matsui, the team's ace pitcher, with a truly impressive set of figures, having been hit just 26 times off a whopping 709 balls.
