The area around a car that was used the previous night by two gunmen is investigated by local police and the FBI in GarlandBy Mark Hosenball and Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. investigators were looking into claims by the Islamic State that it was behind a failed attack on a Texas exhibit of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad in which two gunmen were killed, but officials said on Tuesday they doubted the militant group's direct involvement.

IBM's Watson to guide cancer therapies at 14 centers

A woman walks over a welcoming sign at the booth of IBM at the CeBIT trade fair in HanoverBy Sharon Begley NEW YORK (Reuters) - Fourteen U.S. and Canadian cancer institutes will use International Business Machines Corp's Watson computer system to choose therapies based on a tumor's genetic fingerprints, the company said on Tuesday, the latest step toward bringing personalized cancer treatments to more patients. Oncology is the first specialty where matching therapy to DNA has improved outcomes for some patients, inspiring the "precision medicine initiative" President Barack Obama announced in January. Watson can do it in minutes and has in its database the findings of scientific papers and clinical trials on particular cancers and potential therapies. Cloud-based Watson will be used at the centers – including Cleveland Clinic, Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center in Omaha and Yale Cancer Center – by late 2015, said Steve Harvey, vice president of IBM Watson Health.


Elder Boston bomber was cruel, dominating, witnesses testify

Defense attorney David Bruck presents his opening arguments during the first day of the defense's presentation in the penalty phase of the trial of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in this court sketch in BostonBy Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) - The older of the two brothers in the Boston Marathon bombing was a controlling boyfriend who terrified his future wife's friends but held great influence in his family, witnesses testified as lawyers fought to save the younger brother's life. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died four days after the April 15, 2013 attack that killed three people and injured 264. His younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, last month was convicted of carrying out the attack and could be sentenced to death. The lawyers, who at the trial's opening in March conceded that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had committed all the crimes of which he was accused, contend that Tamerlan was the driving force behind the bombing, with his younger brother going along out of a sense of sibling loyalty.
