Republicans Christie, Fiorina drop White House bids | Reuters

WASHINGTON New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former business executive Carly Fiorina ended their presidential campaigns on Wednesday, narrowing the field challenging front-runner Donald Trump in the race for the 2016 Republican nomination. Christie, 53, said in a Facebook post he was leaving the race "without an ounce of regret," a day after the combative Republican's sixth-place finish in the New Hampshire primary raised doubts about his viability as a candidate. #LinkedIn #markets #Small business #Copyright #Personal finance #Thomson Reuters #Careers

Auschwitz guard, 93, stands trial in Germany | Reuters

BERLIN A 93-year-old former guard at Auschwitz goes on trial in Germany on Thursday accused of being an accessory to the murder of at least 170,000 people - the first of four such court cases that could be the last due to the very old age of the defendants. The three men and one woman accused are all in their nineties and will be tried over the next few months, starting with Reinhold Hanning in the western German city of Detmold. Hanning was 20 years old in 1942 when he started serving as a guard at the Auschwitz death camp in occupied Poland where more than 1.1 million Jews were killed by the Nazis #Business #LinkedIn #markets #Small business #Reuters #Careers

Researchers find new Zika clues to birth defect in foetus study | Reuters

CHICAGO Researchers on Wednesday reported new evidence strengthening the association between Zika virus and a spike in birth defects, citing the presence of the virus in the brain of an aborted foetus of a European woman who became pregnant while living in Brazil. An autopsy of the foetus showed microcephaly or small head size, as well as severe brain injury and high levels of the Zika virus in fetal brain tissues, exceeding levels of the virus typically found in blood samples, researchers in Slovenia from the University Medical Center in Ljubljana reported in the New England Journal of Medicine. The findings help "strengthen the biologic association" between Zika virus infection and microcephaly, researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, wrote in an editorial that accompanied the paper #India #Business #markets #Small business #Thomson Reuters

Zika alarm sparks run on supply of scientific virus samples | Reuters

LONDON Porton Down, the British government center famous for its Cold War germ warfare research, said on Wednesday it was working hard to keep up with demand for Zika virus samples as scientists around the world scramble for them. The National Collection of Pathogenic Viruses (NCPV) is one of a handful of centers worldwide that make viruses available to authorized scientists - and not all of them have managed to satisfy their customers. The non-profit ATCC in Virginia, for example, says on its website that Zika virus is currently on backorder pending production of a new lot, following recent high demand. #Sports #India #Business #Middle East #Health #markets #opinion

WHO advises women on Zika protection but no travel advisories | Reuters

WHO advises women on Zika protection but no travel advisories | Reuters

GENEVA/LONDON The World Health Organisation advised women on Wednesday on how to protect themselves from Zika, particularly if pregnant, but also reassured them that most women in areas affected by the mosquito-borne virus will give birth to "normal infants." The illness, until recently viewed as relatively mild, has sparked concern because of a possible link between infection in pregnancy and microcephaly, a rare birth defect in which infants are born with abnormally small heads that can be accompanied by developmental problems. Brazil, the worst hit country in an outbreak sweeping the Americas and now present in more than 30 countries, is investigating a potential link between Zika infections and more than 4,000 suspected cases of microcephaly. #facebook #India #Business #Technology #markets #Reuters #Personal finance

Damascus expects tough but short battle for Aleppo | Reuters

DAMASCUS The Syrian government expects a tough battle for Aleppo, the city that has become the focal point of the country's long civil war, but is confident of victory and says it won't be a long fight. Damascus aims to seal the border with Turkey, a major sponsor of the insurgents fighting President Bashar al-Assad, and to retake rebel-held areas of what was Syria's biggest city and industrial hub before the conflict began in 2011. "These battles are not easy, but the day will come, God willing, when all Aleppo - its rural areas and the occupied part of the city - will return to state authority," Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said in an interview on Wednesday. #United States #India #Business #Syria #Turkey
