KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The 110th World Series begins on Tuesday at Kauffman Stadium, and one team's joy ride will end. The Kansas City Royals have won eight consecutive games, a record to start a postseason. The San Francisco Giants have won nine consecutive postseason rounds, with championship trophies from 2010 and 2012 to prove it. "No matter what happens," Madison Bumgarner said, "it's a pretty special run we've been on." In Bumgarner, the Giants believe they have the pitcher to make it even more special.   more...

LONDON - Oscar Pistorius, the South African track star once seen as an emblem of triumph over adversity, was sentenced on Tuesday to five years in prison for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. At the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, the South African capital, Judge Thokozile Matilda Masipa announced her ruling after seven months of often-delayed hearings that have been broadcast around the world and captivated people in Mr. Pistorius's own country and abroad. In early September, Judge Masipa found Mr. Pistorius, 27, guilty of culpable homicide - equivalent to manslaughter - and several firearms offenses.   more...

The Suncast Yard Cart is rated 4.8 stars on Amazon. (And that's the average of 124 reviews!) It is superior to a wheelbarrow for most of a homeowner's purposes. It is easier to navigate (it's pulled, not pushed), less tippy, less costly, lower-maintenance (no inflatable tire or rust-prone body), lighter (mostly plastic), less of a space hog, and less tiring (since none of the weight is borne by the shoulders). I've used it for collecting lawn clippings and yard debris. (It can also be used to bring grocery bags into the house from the car.)   more...

MOSCOW - The chief executive of the French oil company Total, Christophe de Margerie, was killed when his business jet collided with a snowplow late Monday night on the runway of Vnukovo International Airport in Moscow. Mr. de Margerie, a staunch defender of Russia's energy policies during the conflict over Ukraine, was in Moscow to attend a meeting of corporate executives with Prime Minister Dmitri A. Medvedev at the Gorky residence outside Moscow, and was returning to Paris. The collision occurred a few minutes before midnight as the executive's Dassault Falcon was accelerating for takeoff in a snowstorm, Vnukovo airport said in a statement.   more...

Intel's venture-capital arm on Tuesday said it would be investing $28 million in five Chinese startups that work on new technologies ranging from wearable devices to iris detection. It is Intel Capital's first infusion from a $100 million China fund launched in April that seeks to foster the creation of new devices that use its chips. The fund is part of the chip giant's new strategy of trying to make itself a key technology supplier for tablets and other smaller, more personal computing devices. Though there's been a modest recovery in the PC business, a market Intel dominates, its outlook remains weak.   more...

Berlin-based audio-streaming service SoundCloud has 175 million unique listeners each month and a valuation north of a half-billion dollars, based on a funding round early this year. But it's losing money; raking in only modest revenue and it's still trying to sign copyright deals with record labels for much of the music it would like to put on its listeners' devices. SoundCloud has recently signed new agreements with EMPIRE Distribution, BPM Media, and Collective Digital Studio. Sony/ATV Music Publishing, co-owned by Sony and the Estate of Michael Jackson, and BMG, a subsidiary of Bertelsmann SE, previously signed on for distribution deals as opposed to licensing artists' content, a company spokesman said.   more...

A genetic variant that is particularly common in some Hispanic women with indigenous American ancestry appears to drastically lower the risk of breast cancer, a new study found. About one in five Latinas in the United States carry one copy of the variant, and roughly 1 percent carry two. The function of the gene is not entirely clear. But the authors of the study, which was led by a team at the University of California, San Francisco, and funded by the National Cancer Institute, said women who carry the variant have breast tissue that appears less dense on mammograms - a factor that is known to play a role in breast cancer risk.   more...
