How Pentagon war fund became a budget buster Washington can't resist

A U.S. soldier attends a change of command ceremony at Oqab baseBy Warren Strobel WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The number of U.S. troops deployed in battle zones is at its lowest level since before the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The contradiction is the legacy of an emergency war fund, started in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, that has become a favorite Washington way to sidestep the impact of fiscal constraints on military spending. The Overseas Contingency Operations account, or OCO, has been tapped to fund tens of billions of dollars in programs with questionable links, or none, to wars, according to current and former U.S. officials, analysts and budget documents.

Exercise during teens reaps long-term benefits for women, study shows

Precious Perez and her team-mates do conditioning exercises at a goalball practice in Malden, MassachusettsBy Patricia Reaney NEW YORK (Reuters) - Playing team sports and exercising during adolescence can have long-lasting benefits for women and may even reduce their risk of dying from cancer and other causes later in life, a new study showed on Friday. "The main finding is that exercise during adolescence is associated with a reduced risk of mortality, or death, in middle aged to older women," Sarah J. Nechuta, an assistant professor of medicine at Vanderbilt Epidemiology Center and Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center in Nashville, said in an interview. Women who were physically active in their teens had a 16 percent lower risk of dying from cancer and a 15 percent decreased risk of death from all causes, according to the study.


Suspect in Charleston church massacre to be arraigned on hate charges

Dylann Storm Roof appears by closed-circuit television at his bond hearing in CharlestonRelatives of nine African-Americans killed at a historic South Carolina church may get a second opportunity to address the white man accused in the murders on Friday when he is arraigned on federal hate crime charges, sources close to the case said. At an earlier court appearance, family members riveted the country by expressing heartfelt forgiveness to Dylann Storm Roof, the suspect in last month's massacre at Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, saying their Christian faith compelled them to rise above their grief. Friday's arraignment comes a week after a federal grand jury in South Carolina returned a 33-count indictment accusing Roof of hate crimes and firearms charges, adding to the raft of state murder and attempted murder counts he already faces.
