Early Bird Headlines 02 April 2015

Econintersect: Here are some of the headlines we found to help you start your day. For more headlines see our afternoon feature for GEI members, What We Read Today, which has many more headlines and a number of article discussions to keep you abreast of what we have found interesting.



  • Hubble captures amazing view of Milky Way (CNN) In a new image, the Hubble Space Telescope peers into the center of the Milky Way, showcasing the star cluster at the center. There are several other fantastic Hubble images with this article.



  • State Department halts review of Clinton emails at FBI request (Reuters) The U.S. State Department has suspended plans for an internal review of whether classified information was properly handled in former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails at the request of the FBI, a spokeswoman said on Friday. State Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Trudeau told reporters:

"The FBI communicated to us that we should follow our standard practice, which is to put our internal review on hold while there is an ongoing law enforcement investigation."

  • Donald Trump again leaves open door to third-party bid (CNN) Donald Trump is again declining to rule out launching an independent bid for the White House, a decision that Trump says he has not yet made but one that could scramble the November election.

  • Tesla, buoyed by strong Model 3 orders, may need more cash (Reuters) An initial flurry of orders has put Tesla Motors' new Model 3 sedan off to a fast start, but the company may need to raise more cash if it hopes to deliver the new electric vehicle to customers on time, analysts said on Friday. The company has received about 200,000 orders with $1,000 deposits in the first 24 hours after the Model 3 was announced.

  • LAPD: Knife found at O.J. Simpson's home not murder weapon (Associated Press) After nearly a month of testing, Los Angeles police detectives have concluded a knife found at the former estate of O.J. Simpson was not the weapon used to kill Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994. Investigators ruled out the knife after weeks of forensic tests. The murder weapon has never been recovered



  • Bolton - the only UK town to see house prices fall (This Week) According to figures published by online estate agency eMoov, based on data from the Office for National Statistics, prices for properties in the centre of the Lancashire town of Bolton fell 9% overall between 2000 and the end of last year. The Sun says prices actually rose from £77,000 to a peak of close to £106,000 in 2008, but have since slumped back to around £71,000. Property rose in every other region during the same period, with the average house price jumping 172% to £221,254. Recently some markets have assumed a classical price bubble experience.

  • London Property: Rise of the Extreme Fringe (Bloomberg) London's edges are heating up. Year-on-year property price increases in a number of the city's postal districts are now around or above the 30% mark, according to a Bloomberg analysis of preliminary February sales data from the U.K. Land Registry. Residential districts in all four corners of the city's core postcodes show increases significantly above the 12.7% median rise, as the map below indicates. The largest single year-on-year rise - albeit with a low sales volume - was in the north London district of NW5.

  • Of course Australia was invaded - massacres happened here less than 90 years ago (The Conversation) A new educational outline for teachers suggests that Australia was "invaded, conquered and colonized". This has produced an outcry that an attempt is being made to rewrite history. This author says that history was written incorrectly to begin with, ignoring the "large scale massacres of Aboriginal people were still being carried out through the 1920s and early 1930s in some parts of Australia".
