Merkel, Hollande and Tsipras meet in Riga to give push to debt talks| Reuters

RIGA German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande held talks late on Thursday with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, hoping to speed the resolution of Athens' debt crisis on the sidelines of an EU summit in Riga. Since its election, Tsipras's left-wing government has held four months of talks with the EU and International Monetary Fund, seeking a deal that could release up to 7.2 billion euros ($8.1 billion) in funds, but talks have stumbled over pension, labour reform, fiscal targets and increases in value-added tax. #Business #Sports #Technology #France #science #markets #Africa #United Kingdom #Entertainment #Mexico #Latvia

Washington state finds first dinosaur fossil, T. rex relative bone| Reuters

SEATTLE Scientists digging among coastal rocks in Washington state have found the partial left femur of a two-legged carnivorous dinosaur, a fossil believed to be about 80 million years old and the first of its kind found in the state, scientists said on Wednesday. Researchers discovered the 16.7-inch (42.4-cm) fossil, part of a femur bone, in May 2012 while collecting ammonite fossils along the shores of Sucia Island in the San Juan Islands northwest of Seattle, the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture said. Paleontologists were unable to identify the dinosaur's exact species but have ascertained it is a theropod, a group that includes Velociraptor and Tyrannosaurus rex, the museum said #Business #Sports #facebook #India #Technology #France #Middle East #Africa #Italy #Mexico
