Passengers on BA jet that caught fire in Las Vegas sue Boeing, GE
Passengers on a British Airways plane that caught fire taking off from Las Vegas in September are suing the makers of the plane and its engines in Chicago, their lawyers said on Friday. The engine of the Boeing 777 burst into flames, forcing all 170 passengers and crew to escape via emergency slides, after a part of a spool in the high-pressure compressor failed, according to findings from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Now 65 passengers from the United States, Britain, Northern Ireland, Ireland and Germany are seeking damages from Boeing and engine maker GE for pain, suffering, emotional stress as well as financial losses, law firm Stewarts Law said in a statement.
Screen time, in moderation, not linked to youngsters' depression
There was, however, little difference in depression risk between children who didn’t have any screen time and those who got about two hours a day. Screen time didn't appear connected to depression in older teens. Overall, in smaller doses, screen time appeared to be a good thing. “The finding of the lower depression risk with a relatively low quantity of screen time may suggest that exposure to screen/media, when in moderation, can have potentially positive impacts on adolescents’ mental health,” said senior study author Dr. Yao Shuqiao of the Medical Psychological Institute, Second Xiangya Hospital of Central South University in Hunan, China.

U.N. Syria envoy says downing of Russian jet 'did not help' peace process
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Turkey's downing of a Russian jet near the Syrian border earlier this week risks harming the Syrian peace process, the United Nation's top Syria diplomat said on Friday, speaking in Stockholm. "It certainly did not help... there is a likelihood of it complicating this," U.N. envoy Staffan de Mistura said about political negotiations over peace or a cease fire. NATO member Turkey and Russia have been in a war of words after Turkey's air force shot down a Russian warplane. (Reporting by Alistair Scrutton, Writing by Daniel Dickson; Editing by Simon Johnson)
Broad smiles and enduring spirit at Holocaust survivors' beauty contest
By Amir Cohen HAIFA, Israel (Reuters) - To the strains of Madonna's "Vogue", the 13 women with a combined age of about 1,050 strutted down the runway cautiously, hindered only slightly by walking sticks and the odd dodgy hip. The third annual Holocaust survivors' beauty pageant, honoring women who lived through the concentration camps and death marches of Nazi Germany, was held in the city of Haifa this week with hundreds of relatives turning out in support. "Many of them were children, teenagers or young adults during the Holocaust," said Jurgen Buhler, the German director of the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem, a sponsor.
Misleading HPV vaccine websites are easy to find
By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - Parents who go online to find out about the vaccine for human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease that causes cervical cancer, may have a hard time finding accurate information, a recent U.S. study suggests. In the U.S., the HPV vaccine is recommended for children at age 11 or 12 years, with the goal of protecting them against the virus before they become sexually active, and also for teens and young adults who may not have previously been vaccinated. The Internet, where the vast majority of Americans go for answers to a wide variety of medical questions, may be particularly misleading when it comes to facts about HPV, researchers report in the Journal of Adolescent Health.
