The U.S. military has deployed two MQ-1 Predator reconnaissance drones and 70 airmen to Latvia on a training mission as part of U.S. efforts to reassure European allies the United States is committed to their security, the Pentagon said on Monday. The deployment of the MQ-1 Predators to Lielvarde Air Base in Latvia over the weekend was the first time the U.S. military has sent a detachment of drones to Latvia to participate in partner training, said Navy Captain Jeff Davis, a Pentagon spokesman. The United States has stepped up partner training deployments to NATO allies in Eastern Europe since Russia last year seized and annexed the Crimean region of Ukraine, raising concerns that Moscow next might target a member of the Western alliance.

(Reuters) - The Washington Redskins on Monday named Kirk Cousins as their starting quarterback for the 2015 National Football League season, the latest signal that former standout Robert Griffin III could be on his way out. Griffin, a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, has struggled for the Redskins since injuring his knee in a January 2013 playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks that required surgery and extensive rehabilitation. There has been growing speculation that Griffin is no longer wanted by the Redskins front office but coach Jay Gruden said on Monday that the team still had belief in the quarterback.

- August 31 2015 14:00: New guidelines for cancer doctors aim to make sense of gene tests - Science News Headlines - Yahoo News
By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) has issued guidelines on how cancer doctors should approach the use of new genetic tests that screen for multiple cancer genes at the same time, including counseling patients about genes whose contribution to cancer is still poorly understood. The guidelines aim to educate doctors about the risks and benefits of new genetic tests, argue for regulation to assure quality and call for more equitable reimbursement of the cost of the tests from private and public insurers. The falling price of genome sequencing has made it possible for cancer doctors to cheaply test for a wide variety of mutated genes that could guide treatment or predict a person's risk for cancer.
