  • Manning breaks Favre's mark with 509th TD pass

    Updated: 10 hr ago

    DENVER (AP) — Peyton Manning broke Brett Favre's NFL record for touchdown passes with No. 509. He didn't stop there, either. Manning threw four TD passes in Denver's 42-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night, two to Demaryius Thomas, one to Wes Welker and another to Emmanuel Sanders. That gives him 510. The record-breaker was an 8-yarder to Thomas with 3:09 left in the first half. Manning's receivers played keep-away with the milestone memento before Manning got the ball and congratulations from his teammates. Favre sent along his congratulations via a scoreboard video he taped from his home in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Manning went into the game with 506 and needed just four drives

Mary Fallin said that while some of the raises may have merit, she is skeptical that 48 directors had to have raises immediately above the other needs at their agencies.

  • Vatican warns of 'new genocide' by IS

    Updated: 10 hr ago

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican has demanded that world governments do more to prevent a possible "new genocide" in northern Iraq and Syria, and for Muslim leaders in particular to repudiate the Islamic State militants who are killing and exiling the region's Christians. Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin told a special meeting of cardinals Monday that beyond a military response, governments must provide more humanitarian aid for refugees and address the core causes of the conflict: the flow of weapons to the region and instability stemming from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Parolin also said Catholic leaders are particularly alarmed that western governments are offering visas to persecuted religious minorities.

  • Methane could be challenge for ND oil industry

    Yesterday

    WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Methane emissions will likely be the next big environmental issue to face North Dakota's booming oil industry according to a top official at the state's Department of Health. Dave Glatt, chief of the Department of Health's environmental health section, said federal regulations could be on the horizon due to the increased attention to emissions of the greenhouse gas from the Environmental Protection Agency and environmental groups. "It's probably prudent to take a look at this and see what we can do voluntarily," Glatt said. The EPA says methane is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted from the U.S. and that the majority of those emissions come from natural gas and petroleum systems.
