The crew of a US military transport plane unload a helicopter at Kathmandu international airport, on May 3, 2015US transport aircraft were to begin shuttling rescue teams and supplies on Monday to remote areas of Nepal that are desperately awaiting aid, nine days after a devastating earthquake that killed more than 7,300 people. The arrival late Sunday in Kathmandu of the United States Air Force C-17 aircraft and four tilt-rotor Ospreys gave another much-needed shot in the arm to the aid effort after a 101-year-old man was pulled alive from his ruined home. An American general said pilots would begin flying sorties out of the capital Kathmandu to remote areas on Monday morning. "They're going to make an immediate difference," US Brigadier General Paul Kennedy told reporters late Sunday.

In this photo taken April 9, 2015, a mature sea star clings to a concrete wall surrounded by barnacles on Washington’s Hood Canal near Poulsbo, Wash.

(AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)LOPEZ PASS, Wash. (AP) — Emerging from a recent dive 40 feet below the surface of Puget Sound, biologist Ben Miner wasn't surprised by what he found: The troubling disease that wiped out millions of sea stars up and down the West Coast had not spared this site along the rocky cliffs of Lopez Island.
