(CNN)US team captain Tiger Woods promised his side is still "ready to go" despite falling 4-1 behind on the opening day of the Presidents Cup. Partnered with Justin Thomas, Woods secured his team's only victory in the fourballs session as the International team established a healthy lead at Royal Melbourne, Australia. However, the 15-time major champion believes his US outfit can come back against Ernie Els' side, which features the cream of players outside Europe. "This is a long four days. I mean, we have to go earn this Cup. Just because we lost the session doesn't mean the Cup's over," Woods told reporters. "There's a long way to go. A lot of points available. The guys will regroup and we'll come out tomorrow ready to go."

MONKEY ISLAND, Liberia - All was quiet when the motorboat puttered to a stop. Saltwater lapped at the narrow sandy shore. Mangrove leaves fluttered in the breeze. Then the man in a blue life jacket cupped his hands around his mouth and shouted: Hoo hoo! Like a secret password, the call unlocked a hidden primate universe. Dozens of chimpanzees emerged from the brush, hairy arms extended. They waded up to the rusty vessel with the nonchalance of someone fetching the mail. "Time to eat," said Joseph Thomas, their wiry guardian of 40 years, tossing bananas into the furry crowd. Chimps aren't supposed to be stuck on their own island - especially one with no food - or mingle with much-weaker humans. But nothing about Liberia's Monkey Island is normal. It's a spectacle, an increasingly costly burden and the enduring legacy of American scientists who set out to cure hepatitis B in 1974. Animal testing has existed since doctors in ancient Greece studied the anatomy of rodents - an estimated 115 … [Read more...] about U.S. lab chimps were dumped on Liberia’s Monkey Island and left to starve.

close Video U.K. election: Everything you need to know The Heritage Foundation's Nile Gardiner breaks down the upcoming U.K general election. Who are the important players, what is at stake in regards to Brexit and how will the outcome affect relations with the United States. As Brits prepare to head to the polls on Thursday to vote in the country’s general election, the chance that far-left Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn becomes Britain’s next prime minister remains very real — a prospect that has even raised red flags from members of his own party. Some polls show Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party ahead by double digits, and on track for as much as a 30-seat majority in the House of Commons, depending on the poll. But surveys going into the country's polling blackout have also suggested a significant tightening and polls in recent elections in the U.K. have frequently misjudged the eventual result. … [Read more...] about UK election: Jeremy Corbyn could become nation’s first socialist leader in 40 years
