National Zoo panda cam would go dark in shutdown

Monday, 30 September 2013 13:35 Published in National News

WASHINGTON (AP) - Officials say the Smithsonian's National Zoo panda cam and all other live animal cameras will go dark in the event of a government shutdown. The zoo will be closed to visitors as well.

The zoo tweeted Monday that "None of our live animal cams will be broadcast." Officials say this includes the panda cam, which has been popular since the birth of a cub on Aug. 23.

The zoo tweeted: "The cams (incl. the panda cams) require federal resources, especially staff, to run. They have not been deemed essential ..."

On its website, the zoo said all programming and events will be cancelled, and all vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle paths will be closed.

Officials said a shutdown would not affect the feeding and care of the animals.

Judge set to preside over 2nd phase of BP trial

Sunday, 29 September 2013 08:42 Published in National News

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — BP's 86-day struggle to stop the flow of oil gushing from its blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico will be the focus of a trial scheduled to resume Monday in federal court.

BP insists it was prepared to respond to the deadly disaster, but plaintiffs' attorneys will argue that the company could have capped the well much sooner if it hadn't ignored decades of warnings about the risks of a deep-water blowout.

U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier has set aside 16 days for the second phase of the trial, which also will feature experts' dueling testimony about the amount of oil that spilled into the Gulf.

The trial's first phase ended in April after the judge heard eight weeks of testimony about the causes of the blowout.

Atlanta logs dramatic turnaround in homelessness

Sunday, 29 September 2013 08:41 Published in National News

ATLANTA (AP) — Homeless veterans and other chronically homeless people are being helped by the hundreds in Atlanta, a city that for years has struggled to keep people off the streets.

The city is well on its way to meeting its goal of finding homes for 800 people this year, with already more than 700 in homes.

Jake Maguire, communications director for the 100,000 Homes Campaign, says Atlanta is a true turnaround story that has made a great deal of progress in a short time frame. The campaign is a national group working to find permanent homes for 100,000 of the nation's most vulnerable homeless.

Veterans are getting help from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, too. Nationally, the VA is increasingly viewing homelessness as a permanent problem — not a temporary one.
