Scientists solve mystery of moving Death Valley rocks

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A solution to the longstanding mystery of why rocks move erratically across an isolated patch of California's Death Valley finally emerged on Thursday, when researchers published a study showing the driving force was sheets of wind-driven ice.

West African states call for end to border closures over Ebola

ACCRA (Reuters) - West African states should re-open their borders and end flight bans put in place to halt the spread of Ebola, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) said on Thursday. The ECOWAS countries and airlines will make their own decisions on flight bans and borders, but the view of the main regional body, expressed at a meeting of ECOWAS health ministers in Ghana's capital, is likely to prove influential. "We must implement containment measures but we must not implement measures that will isolate or ostracise the affected countries," Ghana President John Mahama, who is also ECOWAS's current chairman, told the meeting. #China #Business #Japan #Technology #France #Russia #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom
