By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A drought has robbed the U.S. The findings by scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, were published in the online edition of the journal Science. The researchers relied on data from global positioning system (GPS) stations throughout the West, measuring how much GPS sensors showed the land had risen beneath them. The research underscores the severity of the drought in the West, which in California is expected to cost the state economy $2.2 billion in lost crops, jobs and other damages.

Sports - Price tosses one-hitter at ex-club but loses


Detroit pitcher David Price tossed a one-hitter at his former Tampa Bay teammates Thursday but lost as the Rays edged the visiting Tigers 1-0. Five days shy of his 29th birthday, the American left-hander faced his former Major League Baseball club for the first time and took the loss thanks to the only hit he surrendered. A throwing error by Detroit shortstop Eugenio Suarez allowed Ben Zobrist to reach first base with one out in the first inning and Brandon Guyer followed with a triple to centerfield to produce the game`s only run. Tampa Bay starter Alex Cobb and relievers Brad Boxberger and Jake McGee combined on a four-hit shutout to snap a four-game losing skid for the Rays.

World - Scottish nationalists seek to broaden independence debate beyond currency


By Alistair Smout EDINBURGH (Reuters) - With less than a month to go until Scotland votes on independence, nationalists are seeking to broaden the debate away from a difficult focus on what currency would be used after breaking from the United Kingdom. Health care and other social issues such as justice and equality are likely to get a bigger airing if pro-independence First Minister Alex Salmond has his way in a second televised debate on Aug 25. The question of whether Scotland could keep the pound if it voted on Sept. 18 to leave the United Kingdom has hampered independence campaigners. As a result, uncertainty over the currency dogged the normally fiery Salmond in the first TV debate two weeks ago when he was unexpectedly outshone by the more reserved head of the campaign to keep Scotland in the UK, former finance minister Alistair Darling.
