Kerry to Join Iran Nuke Talks in Vienna

Kerry to Join Iran Nuke Talks in Vienna

State Dept photo(VIENNA) -- Secretary of State John Kerry is traveling to Vienna on Thursday, where he'll join the nuclear talks with Iran. In a statement, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Kerry is coming to the Austrian city to "check in" on the nuclear negotiations with Iran.Psaki added that Kerry's departure date is "not yet determined," leaving open the possibility that he may leave before Monday's deadline. If Kerry goes home, it may be a sign that a deal is dead. If he travels elsewhere, he might be continuing the sidelines negotiations he's done from London and Paris. Officials, meanwhile, are working hard to lower expectations of a deal this week, and some are now openly debating whether an extension is necessary.

Republican Governors Weigh 2016 Prospects

Republican Governors Weigh 2016 Prospects

RGA(BOCA RATON, Fla.) — The first day of this year’s annual Republican Governors Association conference was overshadowed by the president’s pending executive action on immigration. But, there was one more issue Wednesday -- besides the victory lap after this year’s big Republican wins -- on everyone’s mind: 2016. At least six attendees at the conference are mulling a bid for the top office. The RGA’s outgoing chairman New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has been very vocal that he is considering a run saying Wednesday that running the RGA was his “first priority over the last year,” but now, “I’ve got some decisions to make, I’m not shy as you know, I’ll let you know.” When asked if he thinks the next GOP nominee should be a governor, he was clear: “I do because we are better at it than people who do not have the experience of running large enterprises.” Considering the number of GOP governors at the conference this week, Christie and another possible 2016 contender Indiana Gov. Mike Pence were asked if they had made pacts to play nice in what will likely be a nasty intra-party brawl.  “No, no pacts,” Christie said, before dead panning. “I haven’t seen Pence in the corner making any pacts with anybody, but I’ll be watching.”Texas Gov. Rick Perry was asked when the 2016 race should begin, to which he replied, the “more legitimate question” is “when did it start.” “I think the campaign has engaged,” Perry said. “We are talking about issues here that are going to affect the presidential election in 2016.”

Birthday Years Ending in 9 Prompt Big Life Decisions, Study Shows

Birthday Years Ending in 9 Prompt Big Life Decisions, Study Shows

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- People whose ages end in 9 tend to be more likely to seek extramarital affairs, run marathons and commit suicide compared with those whose ages ended in other digits, according to a new study.Researchers at New York University's Stern School of Business and University of California's Anderson School of Management conducted six studies to see how people in the last year of their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s changed their behavior.

They found that people they've nicknamed "9-enders" -- people who were 29, 39, 49 or 59 -- were more likely than others to reflect on their lives and make big changes, according to the study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."When people are facing these new decades, that's when they start to step back and question essentially the meaningfulness of their lives," said study co-author Hal Hershfield, a marketing professor at UCLA who was trained as an experimental social psychologist. "We're not saying people don't do that at other points in their lives. Just that it's particularly likely to happen during life transitions."Hershfield and his co-author Adam Alter came up with the idea for their study while discussing greeting cards and the big deal people make around entering new decades of their lives."It's not like anything officially changes," Hershfield said. "It's not like you got married or you can drive now or you're Bar Mitzvahed."Yet they wanted to study how much meaning is attached to these milestones, particularly for people about to cross into their 30s, 40s, 50s or 60s. So they used data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as data from extramarital affairs site AshleyMadison.com and athlete site Athlinks.com.Chief of psychology at University Hospitals Case Medical Center Jeff Janata, who was not involved in this research, called the study "clever" because it uses actuarial data to examine a "psychological truth.""I think that people use decades and the crossing from one decade into the next as a marker, a time to reflect on the state of their lives. I think it's very common," he said. "What we're really talking about is anticipation more than we are arrival."On the one hand, Hershfield and Alter reasoned that people could react negatively to their impending milestone birthdays by committing suicide or seeking extramarital affairs. On the other, they could set a healthy goal, like running a marathon. They found 9-enders were more likely to do all of these.And 9-enders ran faster marathons than people two years older or younger than they were, proving they trained harder, according to the study."A lot of different factors go into the decision to run marathon, commit adultery or end one's life," Hershfield said. "We wouldn't expect just facing down the barrel of their 40s, 50s would be enough to change it drastically, but it changes it somewhat enough that we could pick up on it statistically."His co-author, Alter, said he hopes the study gives casual readers pause to think about why they're making the changes in their lives."In general, it's easy to get caught up in big milestones, particularly as we age -- but of course there’s no real difference between turning 30 and turning 29 or 31," he said. "Our culture emphasizes years like 30, 40, 50, and 60, but we shouldn't let that shape how we live our lives."

How Russian Website Is Spying on Thousands of Private Moments

How Russian Website Is Spying on Thousands of Private Moments

Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- A baby is seen sleeping in a crib in Orange, California. A woman is watched as she sits at her kitchen table reading the newspaper in Burlington, New Jersey. An office in Plano, Texas, is shown just as the work day begins.They're all scenes from the 4,591 webcams in the United States that are being broadcast on a Russian website. The cameras haven't been hacked. They're simply unsecured, making them easy targets for the Moscow-based website, which ABC News has visited but will not name out of concern for users' privacy.Footage from more than 100 countries, showing living rooms, home exteriors and closed circuit cameras in businesses, among other locations, is easily viewable. The website even takes it further by providing the exact coordinates of each web cam.A message on the website's homepage said it "has been designed in order to show the importance of the security settings.""To remove your public camera from this site and make it private the only thing you need to do is to change your camera default password," the message reads.While it was not immediately clear what could be done to shut down the website, it has caught the attention of watchdogs in the United Kingdom who said they were joining agencies in the United States, Australia and Canada, among others, to issue a warning to consumers.Robert Siciliano, a McAfee identity theft expert, told ABC News users with webcams need to be vigilant about changing the username and password once they're installed."The users of these devices often use the default user name and password that comes with the device," Siciliano said. "Criminals know this and scan the web for these networks and cameras and then they get full access to it."Aside from choosing a secure password, Siciliano said he encourages people to make sure their software is always up to date so hackers can not exploit any potential flaws and make sure their home and office Wi-Fi is encrypted.

Cardinals Prepare for Seahawks

Cardinals Prepare for Seahawks

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(TEMPE, Ariz.) -- The Arizona Cardinals will travel to Seattle on Sunday with a big chip on their shoulder playing as the underdog under backup Drew Stanton.

Stanton led the Cardinals to a 14-6 win over the Lions last Sunday, but they won't be the favorite entering the 12th man at CenturyLink Field.

"I would've anticipated that," Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said. "Going up there, everybody's usually an underdog. It's another one of those things that we don't really need any extra motivation to go play them, especially at their place.

"They're the world champions. We're just 9-1. We haven't done s--- until we do something, but this is a big game."

Seattle is coming off a 24-20 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday and sits three games out of the NFC West behind Arizona.

"We know it's going to be difficult," Stanton said. "We're not trying to pretend that it's not, but at the same time, we have to stick with our keys and what we think we can do to be successful."

Arizona knocked off Seattle in Week 16 last year to hand them their first home loss.

Infant ‘Fingertip Amputations’ Lead to Huge Graco Stroller Recall

Infant ‘Fingertip Amputations’ Lead to Huge Graco Stroller Recall

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission(WASHINGTON) -- Nearly five million Graco baby strollers have been recalled due to “fingertip amputation hazard,” but an ABC News investigation found that if this recall goes like most safety recalls, a vast majority of the strollers could remain on the market, posing a threat to infants for years to come.The recall, to be announced later Thursday by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) and Canadian and Mexican officials, says Graco has received reports of 11 finger injuries “including six reports of fingertip amputations, four reports of partial-fingertip amputation and one finger laceration.”The recall affects 11 models of Graco strollers made from August 2000 to September 2014 -- about 4.7 million strollers in the U.S., more than 200,000 in Canada and 10,300 in Mexico. Owners are told to contact Graco “immediately” to get a free repair kit and, before the kit comes, to “exercise extreme care” when unfolding and using the stroller. A CPSC official told ABC News the fix is "very easy to install" and if parents just safely engage the lock, they can use the stroller until the new hinge cover arrives.The bigger problem: The ABC News 20/20 investigation, airing Friday, found that most recalled products are not turned in or fixed, and remain in homes or are listed for sale.Under current federal law, there is no minimum effort that manufacturers have to make, or money they have to spend, to get the word out about the safety recalls.It is illegal to sell a recalled product, but in a joint investigation with 17 ABC News affiliates across the country, reporters found a wide range of recalled products easily available for resale.“We need to solve this problem and we need as much energy and as much participation from all different aspects we can,” Elliot Kaye, the head of the CPSC, told ABC News in his first major interview since being appointed chairman earlier this year.Kaye said all too often manufacturers give only lip service to safety and fail to spend the money necessary to make sure their recalls are widely known by American families.“We need industry to do more, and we certainly need more done on the tech side, and so be able to get these minds, who are so creative, to commit to working in this space really can make a difference,” said Kaye, who estimated that for a “good recall,” the government estimates only 20 percent of the recalled products are returned or accounted for. In worse cases, it can be as low as five percent.Tune in to ABC's Good Morning America, World News with David Muir and 20/20 Friday for the full report on recalled products, to hear from victims of serious incidents, and to see what major companies are and are not doing to make American households safer.To see if a product you’ve purchased has been recalled, go to SaferProducts.gov.

Angelina Jolie Says Directing Hubby Brad Pitt Is ‘Not Easy’

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Angelina Jolie serves as writer, director and star of the upcoming film, By the Sea. It also marks the first time she's worked with new hubby Brad Pitt since the two tied the knot in August, and she reveals in this month's issue of DuJour magazine that it presented some challenges for the newlyweds.“The tricky thing is directing myself and directing Brad," the 39-year-old actress confesses. "It’s hard, dramatic material, and we’re balancing.”Jolie adds, “It’s a heavy film, and it’s not easy for us. But even as you struggle through it, you’re in the trenches together and you don’t expect it to be easy.""We’re challenging each other," she tells the magazine, "and that’s a really good thing.”Although Jolie has hinted in the past that she may retire from acting and focus her attention on directing full time, she sounded less certain when she spoke to Variety recently.“I’ll do a few more,” she revealed, before noting, “I’m happier when I get to put a camera on another actor and watch them do great work.”Jolie and Pitt play a troubled married couple who travel the country together in By the Sea, which is set for a 2015 release.

All will unfold."TMZ notes the friend, Jeanine Heller, was arrested in September after, authorities said, she violated a protection order by attempting to contact Manning.

I'm very literal, when people talk to me and they use expressions, sometimes I don't know what they're saying."Some people have criticized Seinfeld's self-diagnosis, claiming it makes autism sound fashionable and may possibly lead to others to use the developmental disorder as an excuse for aggravating and quirky behavior.Seinfeld is currently starring in his own Internet series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

Texting the Wrong Way Is a Real Pain in the Neck — and Shoulders

Texting the Wrong Way Is a Real Pain in the Neck — and Shoulders

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Some experts will tell you that it’s not what you text that might be bad for your health but how you text.A study in the journal Surgical Technology International examined the ways people stand when in the act of texting and how it affects the natural curve of the cervical spine located right above your shoulders.Simply tipping your head at a 60-degree angle to read or send a text puts 60 pounds of pressure on the cervical spine, which is incredible when you think that the typical head only weights ten-to-12 pounds.Study author Dr. Kenneth K. Hansraj, chief of Spine Surgery at New York Spine Surgery & Rehabilitation Medicine, says that the best way to text is by keeping the head in an upright position and raising the phone upwards. Even moving it downwards just 15 degrees puts 27 pounds of pressure on the cervical spine.Making the effort will take some practice but it’s well worth it, according to Hansraj, since constantly hunching over hour after hour could lead to headaches, neck pain and even possibly surgery to repair the cervical spine worn down by so much added pressure.

Many Young Adults Uncertain About Future Employment Opportunities

Many Young Adults Uncertain About Future Employment Opportunities

Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- How many times have young adults heard that they’re enjoying the best years of their lives?Unfortunately, a lot of people in their 20s and early 30s are having anything but that, in large part due to a still sluggish employment picture.A new Federal Reserve survey says it’s been going on longer than just the period during and after the Great Recession. These higher rates of unemployment and lower rates of labor force participation for younger generations, compared to older generations, go back at least two decades.As a result, just 45 percent of young adults are optimistic about their future employment opportunities. That left 55 percent saying that they were either uncertain or even pessimistic about what the future holds for them career-wise.Contributing to these feelings of unease is the October unemployment rate for Americans 20-to-24 standing at 10.1 percent and the rate for those 25-to-34 at 6.1 percent. The national average last month was 5.8 percent.The survey of nearly 2,100 people ages 18-to-30 was conducted last December.

Large Sized Vehicles Best for Surviving Potentially Fatal Accidents

Large Sized Vehicles Best for Surviving Potentially Fatal Accidents

iStock/Thinkstock(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Despite everything that’s been done to help motorists avoid fatal accidents, there are still 30,000 deaths in the U.S. annually caused by vehicular crashes.About 21 percent of head-on collisions involve drivers 15-24 and while 39 percent of young people die in these crashes, it’s still the lowest rate of fatalities among all age groups.Furthermore, when Indiana University doctoral student Uzay Kirbiyik examined Fatality Analysis Reporting System database records in 1,100 crashes, he found that the chances of survival increased when the driver is a young male wearing a seat belt with an airbag that deploys who is driving a newer car with more mass such as a light truck or an SUV.With all things being equal, Kirbiyik says the height, rigidity and weight of the vehicle is a major factor in survival rates. However, he did note that more young women than young men die in head-on collisions, a factor he did not elaborate on.As for how to lower the death rates of other age groups involved in fatal crashes, the researcher contends that it will take “an intervention that reduces the involvement of younger drivers” while acknowledging it’s not an easy task.

Former Sen. Jim Webb Exploring Possible Run for the White House

Former Sen. Jim Webb Exploring Possible Run for the White House

Brendan Hoffman/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Former Virginia Senator Jim Webb is exploring whether to seek the Democratic nomination for president in 2016.Webb announced his intention to form an exploratory committee in a message posted Thursday on his website, Webb 2016 Exploratory Committee.In his post, Webb asks, "Is it possible that our next President could actually lay out a vision for the country, and create an environment where leaders from both parties and from all philosophies would feel compelled to work together for the good of the country, despite all of the money and political pressure that now demands they disagree?"Webb suggests he's the person for the job because of his one term in the Senate as a Democrat from 2007-20012 while also serving as Navy secretary during the Reagan administration in 1987 and 1988.An exploratory committee is generally the first step in gauging the public's interest in one's potential candidacy as well as what kind of fundraising support is available.Should Webb decide to run in 2016, one of his likely challengers will be former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who many believe is just biding her time before making her candidacy official at some point in 2015.

Missing Honduran Beauty Queen and Sister Found Murdered

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- A massive search for Miss Honduras, María José Alvarado, and her sister, who have been missing since last week, ended tragically Wednesday when their bodies were discovered buried by a river in the northern part of the Central American country.Police are charging the sister's boyfriend with the women's murders. They have also arrested another man with possible accomplices still at-large.According to authorities, they have the gun Plutarco Ruíz allegedly used to kill Alvarado, 19, and her sister, Sofía, a 23-year-old school teacher. Police also say Ruíz led them to the place where he allegedly buried the women.Both Alvarado and her sister attended a party for Ruíz in a spa close to the city of Santa Bárbara last Thursday. Local media reports that the suspect shot his girlfriend for dancing with another man and also struck Alvarado.Police say that Ruíz had first planned to bring the women to the hospital but when they died, he half-buried them in order to hasten their bodies' decomposition.Crowned Miss Honduras earlier this year, Alvarado had planned to leave for London Thursday to prepare for the Miss World pageant in December.

Buffalo, NY, Buried in Snow, Could Get Another Three Feet Thursday

Buffalo, NY, Buried in Snow, Could Get Another Three Feet Thursday

iStock/Thinkstock(BUFFALO, N.Y.) -- Buffalo, New York, generally averages about eight feet of snow every winter. By the end of the day Thursday, it could eclipse that mark in just three days. And winter is still a month off.Governor Andrew Cuomo got a first-hand look at all the white stuff that has paralyzed much of the city due to the much talked about lake effect, which causes snow to come down faster, thicker and harder than in other areas due to cold air picking up moisture from Lake Erie.Cuomo admitted, "This is a historic event. When all is said and done, this snowstorm will break all sorts of records, and that's saying something in Buffalo.”

Meanwhile, the governor has called in more than 200 National Guardsmen to remove snow, direct traffic and rescue the hundreds of stranded people from area highways.Meteorologists are predicting that Buffalo, which got five feet Tuesday, could get at least another three feet Thursday in a second round of snowfall.To get an idea of how much of a burden the snow has become, it's estimated that the average Buffalonian has to shove 25 tons of it just to get out of their driveway.Meanwhile, it's uncertain whether the Buffalo Bills' game with the New York Jets can be played Sunday since the Bills' stadium is already buried under 220,000 tons of snow with more is forecast for Thursday. The Bills are offering local residents $10 an hour and tickets to a future game in exchange for helping shovel snow.On a more somber note, seven snow-related deaths have occurred in Western New York, some from people suffering heart attacks while shoveling.
