Dutch demans inspections of crash site

Dutch forensic experts on Monday were examining bodies from the MH17 plane disaster being held at an east Ukraine train station as Kiev and insurgents wrangled over the fate of the remains.

McIlroy wins “Open’

Rory McIlroy clutched the treasured piece of silverware, his reward for winning golf’s oldest major championship.

With a grind-it-out performance on the final day of the British Open, McIlroy checked off another requirement for joining perhaps the most exclusive club in the game.

U.S. Open? He’s won that. PGA Championship? Yep, got one of those too.

British Open? Took care of that on Sunday.

”I’m immensely proud of myself,” McIlroy said, clutching the claret jug after a two-shot victory …

Stressed women, saving yourself from sitting: 5 studies you may have missed

Here’s a roundup of five medical studies published this week that might give you new insights into your health, mind and body. Remember, correlation is not causation, so if a study finds a connection between two things, it doesn’t mean that one causes the other.

Rick Perry declines offer to meet Obama at airport

The Los Angeles Lakers are the big winners in the Carlos Boozer sweepstakes

Carlos Boozer could not clear waivers.

The recently-released former Chicago Bulls forward was picked up by the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday afternoon, when it was revealed that the Lakers’ winning bid of $3.25 million (as first reported by Marc Stein of ESPN) was enough to secure the services for the former All-Star.
