  • Prince Charles frustrated by Middletons

    Britain's Prince Charles is reportedly frustrated by the influence Duchess Catherine's parents have in Prince William's life. The 66-year-old heir-to-the-throne is said to feel upset that his son and daughter-in-law - who are expecting their second child together - spend so much time with her parents Michael and Carole Middleton, including a recent holiday to Mustique, while he rarely gets to see his grandson Prince George, 19 months. The family have made few, if any, trips to Charles' Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire over the past year, with insiders speculating William is keen to protect his family from a similar "stiff" upbringing to the one he endured, while Carole is said to not get along particularly well with William's stepmother Duchess Camilla.

  • Dhoni, bowlers shine as India book quarter-final place

    Mahendra Singh Dhoni made a calm unbeaten 45 to guide India to a four-wicket victory over West Indies on Friday which sent the holders into the World Cup quarter-finals. Fast bowler Mohammed Shami (3-35) returned from injury to torment West Indies with three wickets as the Caribbean side were bundled out for 182 after opting to bat first. West Indies captain Jason Holder (57) hit his second half-century and highest score in one-day internationals to give his team some sort of a total to defend against India, who won their fourth match in a row at the tournament.

  • Killing cancer from the inside

    Australian biotech Phylogica is focusing on killing cancer "from the inside", which it says is a more effective way of fighting the disease. The Perth-based company's key objective is to get therapeutic drugs inside cells, where most drug targets are found. "We're about trying to take this new generation of smart drugs that they (big pharmaceutical firms) have been developing and deliver them much more efficiently inside the cells so they can access their targets," Phylogica chief executive Richard Hopkins says.

  • Pharrell tells jury he didn't copy Marvin Gaye in hit song

    Grammy-winning singer Pharrell Williams says he wasn't trying to copy the late Marvin Gaye's music for the hit song "Blurred Lines," but he was trying to evoke the feeling of late 1970s tunes. Williams is being sued by Gaye's children, who claim "Blurred Lines" improperly copies their father's hit "Got to Give it Up." Singer Robin Thicke and rapper T.I. are also defendants in the case. On Wednesday, Williams told a jury in federal court in Los Angeles that he grew up listening to Gaye's music.

  • Indonesia rejects Australian proposal of prisoner swap for death row pair

    Indonesia rejected on Thursday an Australian proposal for a prisoner swap made in an 11th hour effort to save the lives of two Australian drug smugglers expected to face a firing squad within days. The planned executions of Myuran Sukumaran, 33, and Andrew Chan, 31, have ramped up diplomatic tension between Australia and Indonesia after repeated pleas for mercy on their behalf. Indonesia's foreign ministry said there was no legal basis for Indonesia to act on the proposal that had been made by Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

  • CORRECT: NZ could reap $190M/year benefit becoming first nation to allow beyond-line-of-sight drones

    Allowing drones to operate beyond the operator's line of sight could provide economic gains of up to $190 million a year to New Zealand's farming, forestry and energy sectors, according to a report commissioned by Callaghan Innovation. New Zealand may become the first in the world to have a regulatory framework that lets beyond line of sight (BLOS) flights on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), with the Civil Aviation Authority aiming to get sign off for a new rule from the Transport Minister later this month.

  • Clinton ran own computer system for her official emails

    The computer server that transmitted and received Hillary Rodham Clinton's emails — on a private account she used exclusively for official business when she was secretary of state — traced back to an Internet service registered to her family's home in Chappaqua, New York, according to Internet records reviewed by The Associated Press. The highly unusual practice of a Cabinet-level official physically running her own email would have given Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, impressive control over limiting access to her message archives. It also would distinguish Clinton's secretive email practices as far more sophisticated than some politicians, including Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin, who were caught conducting official business using free email services operated by Microsoft Corp. and Yahoo Inc.

  • US running out of room to store oil; price collapse next?

    The U.S. has so much crude that it is running out of places to put it, and that could drive oil and gasoline prices even lower in the coming months. For the past eight weeks, the United States has been producing and importing an average of 1.1 million more barrels of oil every day than it is consuming. If this keeps up, storage tanks could approach their operational limits, known in the industry as "tank tops," by mid-April and send the price of crude — and probably gasoline, too — plummeting.
