South Carolina Senate expected to vote to remove Confederate flag

A Confederate flag stands in front of the South Carolina State House in ColumbiaBy Harriet McLeod CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - South Carolina's Senate is poised to pass legislation Tuesday to remove the Confederate battle flag from the state house, where it has flown for five decades despite being viewed by many as a symbol of slavery. A bill to banish the flag from the Capitol grounds to a museum is headed on Tuesday for a third and final vote in the Senate, which it is considered virtually certain to pass. Then it will be taken up by the House of Representatives and could become law as early as Thursday.

Bill Cosby said in 2005 lawsuit he gave Quaaludes to women for sex

Comedian Bill Cosby performs at The Temple Buell Theatre in DenverComedian Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that he had obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving the sedatives to young women in order to have sex with them, according to court documents unsealed on Monday. Cosby, 77, made the admission during testimony in a civil case brought by a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand, who alleged that Cosby tricked her into taking drugs before he sexually assaulted her. Cosby's lawyers had argued that the documents would cause severe embarrassment to the comedian-actor, who is best known for playing lovable father figure Dr. Cliff Huxtable on the hit TV comedy series "The Cosby Show" in the 1980s and 1990s.

After coal, can better health save West Virginia?

Faded sign welcomes drivers to Williamson, West VirginiaBy Valerie Volcovici WILLIAMSON, WV (Reuters) - With coal trains chugging past in the distance, Jack Perry watches as his wife, Margie, plants row upon row of Hungarian pepper seedlings in the community garden that residents of this West Virginia coal town call the "Garden of Eatin'."     "The peppers they sell at the stores don't taste anything like this," says Perry, a retired coal worker. Unlike their neighbors in Kentucky, where there have been state-sponsored economic transition efforts, West Virginians have been largely left on their own to respond to coal's decline.

Spieth hopes McIlroy can recover for British Open showdown

PGA: U.S. Open-Final RoundDouble major winner Jordan Spieth believes defending champion Rory McIlroy's potential absence from the British Open through injury would "dampen" the occasion. McIlroy's title defense and keenly anticipated contest against Spieth was thrown into doubt on Monday when the Northern Irishman revealed he had ruptured an ankle ligament while playing soccer with friends. While many observers believe McIlroy is certain to miss the third major of the season, the American winner of this year's U.S. Masters and U.S. Open is keen to see the world number one recover in time to play at St Andrews next week.

Greece faces last chance to stay in euro as cash runs out

Outgoing Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis shows newly-appointed Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos his chair in AthensBy Paul Taylor and Costas Pitas BRUSSELS/ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is expected to present new proposals to an emergency euro zone summit on Tuesday, under pressure from European leaders to come up with credible ideas as his country's banks face potential meltdown. With Greek lenders down to their last few days of cash and the European Central Bank tightening the noose on their funding, Tsipras must persuade the bloc's other 18 leaders, many of whom are exasperated with five years of crisis, to open negotiations fast on a new loan to rescue Greece. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, under suspicion from both sides for trying to broker a last-minute deal, told the European Parliament: "There are some in the European Union who openly or secretly are working to exclude Greece from the euro zone." He did not name names but may have been referring to German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, who has made no secret of his scepticism about Greece's fitness to stay in the euro.

The Euro STOXX 50 index of euro zone blue-chip shares rose 0.2 percent after falling 2.2 percent on Monday.

China stocks fall again despite support measures

An investor makes a note on his hand at a stock exchange market in KunmingBy Samuel Shen and Pete Sweeney SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Chinese stocks fell on Tuesday, taking little comfort from a slew of support measures unleashed by Beijing in recent days, and unnerved by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang's failure to mention the market chaos in a statement on the economy. Before the market opened, Li said in comments posted on a government website that China had the confidence and ability to deal with challenges faced by its economy, but had nothing to say on the three-week plunge that has knocked around 30 percent off Chinese shares since mid-June. Qi Yifeng, analyst at consultancy CEBM, said government measures were not strong enough to reverse the downtrend, especially as it was a liquidity issue for many who had borrowed to buy shares and were now forced to sell to meet margin calls.

Aetna CEO addresses antitrust concerns over Humana deal

A trader points up at a display on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeBy Caroline Humer NEW YORK (Reuters) - Aetna Inc's chief executive said Monday he was confident any antitrust review of the health insurer's proposed purchase of smaller rival Humana Inc would allow the deal to close in the second half of 2016. Mark Bertolini said Aetna had already prepared for possible divestitures to address overlaps with Humana's business in the largest-ever U.S. health insurance deal. Aetna has not discussed the deal directly with the U.S. Department of Justice, but has consulted with regulatory experts, Bertolini told cable channel CNBC.
