By Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - The National Gallery in London on Thursday won the dismissal of a lawsuit in which three grandchildren of a muse of the artist Henri Matisse sought to recover a painting they said was stolen shortly after World War Two. U.S. District Judge Valerie Caproni in Manhattan said the museum and Great Britain were shielded by sovereign immunity, and the grandchildren waited too long to sue for the return of "Portrait of Greta Moll." Oliver Williams and Margarete Green, both of Great Britain, and Iris Filmer, of Germany, had accused the National Gallery of ignoring signs that the 1908 painting might have been stolen, and should not profit from "war-related" theft.

A 12-year-old girl trapped in a collapsed school building – who had become symbol of hope in earthquake-devastated Mexico City – does not exist, officials have said. The news came as rescue teams worked to free students and teachers trapped in the elementary school, which crumbled after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck this week. After more than 30 hours of work, the Mexican Navy announced that all children at the school had been accounted for.
"The bottom line is that we are not going to be able to replicate the gooey consistency of the queso you might get at the ballpark or at a movie theater because those products are not made from real ingredients," Chipotle's chief marketing officer Mark Crumpacker said in a memo to employees obtained by Bloomberg. "Most [quesos are] made with a bunch of artificial ingredients (stabilizers, preservatives and artificial flavors, for example) and that is not something we do," Chipotle spokesperson Chris Arnold told Business Insider last week. The problem is that Arnold says that customers' biggest issue with queso is the texture.
A wildfire has scorched roughly 1,000 hectares of land in Spain’s vacation island of Gran Canaria as of Thursday, September 21.

Drinking enough water is an important part of any fitness plan, but in Tom Brady’s new book "The TB12 Method," He describes a hydration regimen that may seem unfathomable to some. The book, released on Tuesday, contains 320 pages outlining Brady's guiding principles on diet and exercise, as well as an account of his personal journey to achieving physical fitness. For the 225-pound Brady, that means a huge intake of water: around 112 ounces a day. But that doesn't always cut it, especially when his schedule is particularly strenuous.
By Meng Meng and Josephine Mason BEIJING (Reuters) - Thousands of small factories in China, making everything from steel to chemicals, are scrambling for access to the country's clogged rail network as Beijing curbs the use of diesel trucks in an effort to tackle air pollution. The Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) last month gave tens of thousands of companies in 28 cities until Nov 1 to halve their use of diesel trucks over the winter months, when pollution is at its worst. The ministry, in a policy document, also set more stringent, permanent targets for more than 20 power and steel companies, including Zhengzhou Xinli Power, Xingtai Iron & Steel and Hebei Risun Coke, directing them to send at least half their shipments by rail.
Paul Kahn, the former boss of Airbus's UK operations, is to resurface in a senior role at Cobham (Other OTC: CBHMF - news) , the embattled defence and aerospace group.

An American nonprofit organization, Clean Futures Fund, has started a spay and neuter clinic fior the four-legged descendants of survivors of one of history's worst nuclear disasters. After the Chernobyl nuclear reactor melted down on April 26, 1986, some dogs and cats left behind survived and began to breed. The laws governing the exclusion zone around Chernobyl strongly advise people to avoid feeding or touching the dogs, due to the risk of contamination.
