Indonesia's Prabowo to challenge election result ... US Politics - (Yahoo)

Indonesian presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto delivers a statement prior to the election count announcement in Jakarta on July 22, 2014The ex-general who lost Indonesia's presidential election to Joko Widodo will challenge the result in court, his campaign team said Wednesday, a move that could spell weeks of uncertainty for the country. Widodo, the reform-minded governor of Jakarta seen as a break from the autocratic era of dictator Suharto, was named the winner Tuesday, with results showing he resoundingly defeated his only rival Prabowo Subianto. Before the result was announced in the world's third biggest democracy, Prabowo -- who had also claimed victory in the July 9 vote -- angrily announced he was withdrawing from the election race. He claimed Widodo's side had tampered with the votes during the long counting process.

Israeli soldiers carry a shell as they prepare their Merkava tanks stationed along the Israeli Gaza border, on July 22, 2014Airlines blocked flights to Israel Wednesday after a Gaza rocket struck near airport runways, as the UN chief urged an end to a conflict that has killed 639 Palestinians and 31 Israelis.

Business executive wins Georgia Republican runoff... US Politics - (Yahoo)
By David Beasley ATLANTA (Reuters) - Campaigning as an outsider who would shake up Washington, a former Fortune 500 chief executive defeated an 11-term congressman in a Georgia runoff election on Tuesday between two Republicans seeking to fill an open U.S. Senate seat. David Perdue, former chief executive of Reebok, Dollar General and Pillowtex, led U.S. Representative Jack Kingston by nearly 8,000 votes with 92 percent of the state's counties reporting, prompting Kingston to concede his loss. "The numbers are not trending in our direction, and they're probably not going to change," Kingston told supporters shortly before 11 p.m., about four hours after polls closed. Perdue will face Democrat Michelle Nunn, daughter of former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn, in the November general election for the seat being vacated by retiring Republican Saxby Chambliss.
US Air Force to launch new surveillance satellite... US Politics - (Yahoo)

The US Air Force will launch new satellites Wednesday to track those of other countries and counter possible threats to American spacecraft, officials saidThe US Air Force will launch new satellites Wednesday to track those of other countries and counter possible threats to American spacecraft, officials said. Two satellites are due to be sent into high-altitude orbits for the first time as part of a program that until a few months ago was strictly secret and classified. The satellites will be launched from Delta IV rockets from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida and head to the geosynchronous belt, 22,300 miles (35,900 kilometers) above Earth, where crucial US satellites are also orbiting. Shelton said the satellites would dramatically improve the US military's picture of satellite traffic in the geosynchronous orbit, as the new satellites will be much closer at the higher altitude.
