Charlie Gard doctors remain 'unconvinced' after flying visit by US neurosurgeon who said he could treat himThe British doctors caring for Charlie Gard are understood to remain unconvinced by an American neurosurgeon who claimed he could treat the little boy. Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) staff spent five and half hours on Tuesday locked in discussions with Dr Michio Hirano, a US specialist who flew back to the US on Tuesday night. Charlie’s mother Connie Yates was also present at the meeting to determine the best course of action for her 11-month-old son. Dr Hirano had flown to London on Monday to examine the boy and assess brain scans carried out at the weekend. Timeline: Charlie Gard's parents' battle 02:17 Dr Hirano had said his experimental therapy could help treat Charlie, who suffers from a rare genetic disease. GOSH believes that Charlie has suffered irreversible brain damage and that life support should be withdrawn but his parents Connie Yates and Chris Gard, from Bedfont in west London, argue he should be transferred to a New York hospital for treatment from Dr Hirano.  A High Court has already ruled that Charlie be allowed to ‘die with dignity’ but agreed to further examination after hearing Dr Hirano’s therapy could significantly improve his quality of life. Dr Michio Hirano  Miss Yates, 31, thanked Dr Hirano and another specialist, who cannot be named, for flying in to see her child. She said: “Our gorgeous baby boy is still stable. We are at his bedside and feel satisfied he is not suffering or in any pain. As Charlie’s loving parents we are doing the right thing for our son in exploring all treatment options.” She said that Dr Hirano had requested a new MRI scan and a 30-minute EEG scan but that “GOSH preferred a longer EEG which the judge ordered”.  Miss Yates added: “Our son has now undergone the scans. We have facilitated the experts in every possible way. Charlie will be having some more tests shortly.” It is not clear what those tests are. Connie Yates and Chris Gard with baby Charlie Great Ormond Street has declined to comment on the discussions with Dr Hirano while the court case is ongoing. But it is understood the hospital failed to be persuaded by claims he had made in the High Court last week that he could help Charlie and that he had seen no evidence of irreversible brain damage. The hospital is understood to be sticking by its position statement issued last Thursday. In that statement, the hospital said: “It has been and remains the unanimous view of all those caring for charlie at Great Ormond Street that withdrawal of ventilation and palliative care are all that the hospital can offer him consistent with his welfare. "That is because in the view of his treating team and all those from whom GOSH obtained second opinions, he has no quality of life and no real prospect of any quality of life.” The case will come back to the High Court on Friday with further hearings expected next week that will finally decide the fate of Charlie,who suffers from mitochondrial depletion syndrome. His doctors say he is blind, deaf, unable to move and badly brain damaged, with no hope of recovery. The case has become a cause celebre with interventions from Donald trump and the Vatican in support of Charlie’s parents. The Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court have both uphold the decision of Mr Justice Francis in the High Court that Charlie’s life support be withdrawn.

Wildfire forces evacuation of California town near YosemiteBy Al Golub MARIPOSA, Calif. (Reuters) - The 2,000 residents of a small California town in the foothills flanking Yosemite National Park were ordered to evacuate on Tuesday as crews battled an out-of-control wildfire that has already destroyed eight structures. Residents of tiny Mariposa, in the Sierra Nevada mountains southwest of Yosemite in central California, were ordered to flee after flames from the so-called Detwiler Fire jumped over Highway 140 and marched toward the community, threatening 1,500 structures. "Fire activity continued to grow throughout the night due to ample fuel, and steep terrain," the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) said on its tracking website.

MH370 search reveals hidden undersea worldThe painstaking search for missing flight MH370 has uncovered a previously unknown undersea world of volcanoes, deep valleys and soaring ridges, according to detailed maps released by Australia. Although no trace of the Malaysia Airlines plane was found during the search in the southern Indian Ocean -- the most expensive ever of its kind -- large volumes of data showing a detailed picture of the sea floor had to be collected to guide the probe. "It is estimated that only 10 to 15 percent of the world's oceans have been surveyed with the kind of technology used in the search for MH370," Geoscience Australia's environmental geoscience chief Stuart Minchin said late Wednesday.

The White House and Mitch McConnell’s office tell very different stories about the failure of the health care billAs the dust settled following Monday night’s collapse of the Republican effort to repeal Obamacare, a flurry of finger-pointing and competing narratives emerged with both the White House and the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell trying to minimize their own roles in the debacle. Some White House staffers threw McConnell under the proverbial bus, suggesting that the majority leader rushed the vote and limited President Trump’s involvement. McConnell’s allies denied he sought to dictate the process or have the president take a back seat.

Fox News reporter walks out of off-camera press briefing and throws parting shot at White HouseFox News reporter John Roberts has thrown some shade at Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Donald Trump’s spokeswoman, for the White House’s refusal to hold daily on-camera press briefings. In recent weeks, the White House has begun to hold off-camera briefings almost daily – a departure from previous administrations when daily on-camera briefings were the norm. Mr Trump's press staff have said the change is meant to draw more attention to the President's remarks, but some reporters have asserted that the White House “should have the backbone” to answer questions during on-camera proceedings.
