Scientists believe rats could eventually grow to the size of sheep or even bigger as they evolve to fill vacant ecological niches.

The scenario could become a reality as super-adaptable rats take advantage of larger mammals becoming extinct, an expert predicts.

The suburbs would control a new regional water system and pay $1.88 billion for the privilege under Detroit’s preliminary debt-cutting plan for exiting bankruptcy court, according to a copy obtained by The Detroit News.

The 99-page plan — stamped “Privileged and Confidential” — serves as a roadmap for Detroit to restructure more than $18 billion in debt and prescribes treatment of various creditors, including municipal retirees, bondholders and the Detroit Institute of Arts’ collection.

The city also told creditors that in the event it doesn’t win agreement from all classes of creditors it will seek a “cram down” — asking U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes to approve the plan any way. Continue reading…

Bryant Talks Injury

Many NBA fans are concerned about the state of Kobe Bryant’s health. Some worry that his recent injuries will cause him to retire. He just recovered from an injury to his Achilles heel and has already suffered a knee injury.

Learn about rotator cuff tears.

Read more from ESPN:

Lakers star Kobe Bryant says his knee injury was not caused by him returning to the lineup too quickly from an Achilles injury in the same leg.

“I don’t think one had anything to do with the other,” Bryant said Wednesday in his first media session since being diagnosed with the fracture last week. “We’ve evaluated it pretty extensively. The fact of the matter is any of us can get hurt at any moment and the key for us as an athlete is to block that fear out.”

Bryant, speaking before the Lakers’ 101-95 loss to the Miami Heat, said he has no plans to shut it down for the season and is as determined as ever to play despite suffering a fracture of the lateral tibial plateau in his left knee just six games into his return from the Achilles tear.

NBA Star Vows Injury Won’t Change Him

Derrick Rose plays for the Chicago Bulls but recently had surgery on a torn meniscus. He is only 25 and is supposed to be the team’s star player, but was out all last season with an injury. Now he is out for the rest of the season with this knee injury.

Read more from The New York Times:

Ten minutes into his news conference, Rose, 25, was asked what he might say to people who think the Bulls ought to reconsider his role as the centerpiece of the franchise, given his injury history. He missed all of last season recovering with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and played in just 39 games during the shortened 2011-12 season. The Bulls ruled him out for this season when they announced his operation.

Rose paused, pondering the question. He scratched his chin thoughtfully. Then he said: “You can be a fool if you want to. I know I’m going to be all right.”

While fans in Chicago and plenty of others around the N.B.A. fret about Rose’s future, the former most valuable player remained defiant in the wake of his latest setback, assuring everyone that he would be back — again. Continue reading…

A federal judge expects to rule this week on whether American Airlines can exit bankruptcy and merge with US Airways.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane must decide whether recent modifications to the merger substantially changed the reorganization plan. The modifications were made to settle a federal antitrust lawsuit.

Separately, he must decide whether plaintiffs in a private antitrust lawsuit deserve a temporary restraining order.

“Here’s what I’m going to do,” Lane said after a hearing Monday. “I’m going to take everything under advisement and issue a decision very quickly. We may be able to do that as soon as this afternoon, but it may take another 24 to 36 hours. In any event, it will be done by Wednesday.” Continue reading…

Detroit Bankruptcy Judge To Rule December 3

Read more from USA Today:

Rhodes conducted a nine-day bankruptcy eligibility trial, ended Nov. 8, in which lawyers argued over whether the city meets the U.S. government’s specific legal criteria for Chapter 9 bankruptcy.

It’s not clear why the judge opted to schedule a hearing to discuss his ruling verbally before issuing a written opinion. Most people involved in the case were expecting a written opinion, perhaps without warning.

“It’s unusual,” said Laura Beth Bartell, a bankruptcy law professor at Wayne State University. “I have never heard of this. I don’t know why he is doing that.” Continue reading…

Beleaguered electric car maker Fisker Automotive finally filed for bankruptcy late on Friday, many months after expected, and over a year since it made its last car. While the bankruptcy has been expected for a long time, this is one of the first times the public has been able to see Fisker’s very long list of creditors — 669 pages long, with an estimated 5,000 to 10,000 creditors.

Creditors are individuals and companies to which Fisker owes money, so the list includes vendors as well as investors. It could also include people that put down deposits for cars and never received a car, or people who bought a car from Fisker and for whatever reason are still owed money. At this point it’s hard to tell which creditors are involved with what part of the business and for how much, but what we do know is that there are a lot of well-known names on that creditor list.

A police union leader who was the last witness in a trial to determine Detroit’s next step in bankruptcy testified Thursday that city officials were not interested in give-and-take negotiations before the historic filing.

Detroit wants to slash billions of dollars of debt in the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history. But before any numbers get crunched, it must prove to a judge that it’s eligible for Chapter 9 by passing several key steps, including evidence of good-faith talks with creditors early last summer.

Unions and pension funds claim emergency manager Kevyn Orr and his legal team planned bankruptcy for months and really had no desire to strike a deal. They are also pointing to the Michigan Constitution, which says public pensions can’t be altered. Continue reading…
