‘Bionic man’ walks, breathes with artificial parts

NEW YORK — Gentlemen, we can rebuild him, after all. We have the technology. The term “bionic man” was the stuff of science fiction in the 1970s, when a popular TV show called “The Six Million Dollar Man” chronicled the adventures of Steve Austin, a former astronaut whose body was rebuilt using artificial parts after […]

Germany votes for Merkel at home, austerity abroad

Even though the immediate postwar Europe is a fading memory, Germans still opt for stability and familiarity when they head to the polls. They did so again Sunday, by giving Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose personal style is caution verging on monotony, a third term, with 41.5 percent of the vote, just short of an absolute […]

Practically human: Can smart machines do your job?

WASHINGTON — Art Liscano knows he’s an endangered species in the job market: He’s a meter reader in Fresno. For 26 years, he’s driven from house to house, checking how much electricity Pacific Gas & Electric customers have used. But PG&E doesn’t need many people like Liscano making rounds anymore. Every day, the utility replaces […]

Roddick beats Fognini in US Open to postpone retirement

NEW YORK — Knowing full well each match could be his last, Andy Roddick is putting on a show while soaking up every moment along the way. So when he pounded a forehand passing shot to seize a 20-stroke point Sunday, Roddick thrust both arms overhead, motioning to the full house of U.S. Open spectators […]

AURORA, Colo. — An eager audience forgoing sleep to take in the midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” instead were witnesses Friday to a bloody mass shooting at a suburban Denver movie theater.

Germany beats Greece 4-2 to reach semifinals

GDANSK, Poland — With Chancellor Angela Merkel cheering every step of the way, Germany dominated Greece — on the football field. The Germans reached the European Championship semifinals for a record seventh time by beating Greece 4-2 Friday in a match played amid the contentious political backdrop between the countries. But just like in the […]

Calif. voters face redrawn ballot, new districts

SACRAMENTO — California voters will face a newly reshaped ballot with many more choices on Tuesday as they cast votes in the first statewide election to implement two major voter-approved political reforms and as candidates compete in districts meant to be more competitive. A new top-two primary system and redrawn legislative and congressional districts are […]

Seven vie for four board seats in Fairfield-Suisun schools race

FAIRFIELD — Seven people are running for four seats on the Fairfield-Suisun School District board in the Nov. 8 election in a race that guarantees at least two fresh faces will be elected.

Washington beats California 16-13 on last play

AP Sports Writer BERKELEY — Chris Polk scored on a 1-yard run as time expired, and Washington denied California bowl eligibility while keeping its own postseason hopes alive with a thrilling 16-13 victory Saturday. Quarterback Jake Locker, who threw an earlier 80-yard touchdown pass, was stopped on consecutive sneak attempts on second and third down […]

Official: Germans, Brits behind Europe terror plot

Associated Press Writers ISLAMABAD — Eight Germans and two British brothers are at the heart of an al-Qaida-linked terror plot against European cities, but the plan is still in its early stages, with the suspects calling acquaintances in Europe to plan logistics, a Pakistani intelligence official said Thursday. One of the Britons died in a […]

Australia votes on whether first woman PM survives

Associated Press Writer CANBERRA, Australia — Australians choose Saturday whether they will cut down their first woman prime minister after only two months in power and return to conservative rule in a cliffhanger election that threatens the survival of a first-term center-left government. Voters face an unusual choice between two relative unknowns: a prime minister […]

Spain beats Germany 1-0 in World Cup semifinal

DURBAN, South Africa — Spain outplayed Germany yet again. And now the Spanish have the biggest prize of all within their sights. Spain will play for the World Cup title for the very first time, thanks to Carles Puyol’s goal on a powerful header in the second half Wednesday night. The 1-0 victory was the […]

Germany beats England 4-1 in World Cup

AP Sports Writer BLOEMFONTEIN, South Africa — Germany’s latest World Cup victory over England will be remembered not for any of the brilliant goals, but for the one that didn’t count. Ask anyone — players, coaches, thousands of fans in the stadium and millions more watching on television — and there’s little question that Frank […]

Germany beats Ghana 1-0, wins World Cup group

JOHANNESBURG — Germany won. Ghana lost, then won. Mesut Oezil scored on a left-footed blast from outside the area Wednesday to give Germany a 1-0 victory over Ghana and first place in Group D at the World Cup. Still, Ghana had reason to party. Moments after the game was over, Ghana learned that Australia had […]

US, England face decisive matches

JOHANNESBURG — Group C was supposed to be a romp through the first round of the World Cup for the English and Americans. That romp has turned into an obstacle course, and both teams have stumbled.

UN panel: 8 reasons to worry about global warming

YOKOHAMA, Japan — If you have already read “12 Pieces of Practical Advice from Housecats,” now you can move on to “8 Reasons to Worry about Global Warming.” A United Nations panel of scientists is joining the list craze with what they call eight “key risks” that are part of broader “reasons for concern” about […]

Spotters fight fatigue in hunt for jet lost at sea

OVER THE SOUTHERN INDIAN OCEAN — They stare out at a punishingly unbroken expanse of gray water that seems, at times, to blend into the clouds. Occasionally, they press their foreheads against the plane’s windows so hard they leave grease marks, their eyes darting up and down, left and right, looking for something — anything […]

Pa. couple sent to prison for 2nd prayer death

PHILADELPHIA — A couple who believed in faith-healing were sentenced Wednesday to 3 1/2 to seven years in prison in the death of a second child who never saw a doctor despite being stricken with pneumonia.

Prisoners’ use of smuggled cellphones on the rise

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — They’re hidden in babies’ diapers, ramen noodle soup packages, footballs, soda cans and even body cavities. Not drugs or weapons, but cellphones. They’re becoming a growing problem in prisons across the country as they are used to make threats, plan escapes and for inmates to continue to make money from illegal activity […]

Stealing hearts: Aria Schilling thrives after December surgery

VACAVILLE — Aria Schilling is only 18 months old and knows how to keep an audience captive. She lifts up her top to expose a scar, the result of heart surgery in early December.

The Vacaville tot made news around the nation last fall as her parents battled their insurance provider to have the operation performed at the hospital, and with the doctor, most familiar with their daughter’s health.

The Schillings said they spent months preparing for the surgery only to be told a few days before the scheduled date that it wouldn’t happen because they were using a physician and facility out of the insurer’s network.

Shaun White nixes Olympic slopestyle

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia — Shaun White jammed his wrist on one jump and watched the world’s best snowboarders join him in tumbling down the supersized, super-scary Olympic slopestyle course. Quickly, his choice became clear: Time to step away from the danger, and give himself a better chance in the event he knows he can win. […]

THC-Hawks? Pot puns pack this Super Bowl

SEATTLE — The way Bryan Weinman sees it, he and his friends already won their Super Bowl bet. Two weeks ago, the nightclub DJ and a few buddies were sitting at a sports bar in Denver, joking about how funny it would be if the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos — the NFL teams from […]

Review: Bold Hudgens but flat script in ‘Shelter’

Jocelyn Noveck If lofty intentions, determination and hard work were all it took to make a successful movie, then “Gimme Shelter,” a film about teen pregnancy starring former Disney star Vanessa Hudgens, would have it made. Both the actress, who gained weight and made herself strikingly ungainly for the role, and director-writer Ronald Krauss clearly […]

Teach your children that it’s wrong to punch strangers for fun

Dear Annie: I just finished watching a piece on the news about young people assaulting others and calling it a game. It seems they walk up to unsuspecting people and throw the hardest punch they can to the face in an effort to knock someone out. In one instance, a man was hit so hard, […]

American teacher shot dead in Libya’s Benghazi

TRIPOLI, Libya — An American chemistry teacher was shot to death as he was jogging in Benghazi on Thursday, highlighting persistently tenuous security in the eastern Libyan city where the U.S. ambassador was killed last year. There were no credible claims of responsibility, but suspicion was likely to fall on Islamic militants active in Benghazi. […]

Infiniti SUV has new name: QX56 becomes QX80

With the new name of QX80 for 2014, Infiniti’s largest sport utility vehicle packs some of the softest-feeling leather, shiniest burl wood and a host of other luxury items into a big, nicely crafted interior. But this seven- or eight-passenger SUV, renamed from last year’s QX56 so it fits with Infiniti’s new, 2014 nomenclature, retains […]

IndyCar star Franchitti retires month after crash

Dario Franchitti kept racing after the death of best friend Greg Moore. He continued on following the death of former teammate Dan Wheldon. He was eager to drive into his early 40s. He won’t get the chance. The three-time Indianapolis 500 winner and four-time IndyCar Series champion reluctantly and abruptly retired Thursday, saying doctors told […]

Short-term debt deal won’t mask big barriers ahead

WASHINGTON — Hold the champagne. Even after lawmakers complete their pending deal to avert a federal default and fully reopen the government, they are likely to return to their grinding brand of brinkmanship — perhaps repeatedly. Wednesday’s self-congratulations notwithstanding, congressional talks are barely touching the underlying causes of debt-and-spending stalemates that pushed the country close […]

Raiders win and make it hard for me to control myself

The good news is that the Oakland Raiders defeated the San Diego Chargers Sunday in their late-night AFC West battle. The bad news is the resultant Raider pride that I feel has made it extremely hard for me. You see, I am a member of Sports Smack Anonymous. I’ve been practicing this strange thing called […]
