This Jan. 20, 2015 photo released by Hawaii Department of Land & Natural Resources shows coral being studied for bleaching, which is a stress response that causes corals to lose algae and color from their tissue, in Kaneohe Bay near Kaneohe, Hawaii. Warm ocean temperatures last summer stressed many of Hawaii’s coral reefs so severely that they expelled the algae they rely on for survival. The resulting mass “bleaching” of Hawaii’s corals is a blow to the state’s fragile reefs which are already under pressure from runoff from development on land and overfishing. It’s also a concerning indicator of a warming globe, with some activists calling coral bleaching the most visible sign of climate change. (AP Photo/Hawaii Department of Land & Natural Resources, Dan Dennison)HONOLULU (AP) — Coral rely on algae for food and their survival.

Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, right, accompanied by government spokesman Yoshihide Suga, speaks during a hurriedly held ministerial meeting on Japanese hostage Kenji Goto taken by the Islamic State group, at the prime minister's official residence in Tokyo Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015. The extremist group released a message late Wednesday purportedly extending the deadline for Jordan's release of an Iraqi would-be hotel bomber linked to al-Qaida. The message, read by a voice claiming to be Goto, was released online after Jordan offered a precedent-setting prisoner swap to the Islamic State group, desperately seeking to save a Jordanian air force pilot the militants purportedly threatened to kill, along with Goto. Suga said on Thursday the government was analyzing the latest message and Japan was doing its utmost for the release of Goto, working with nations in the region, including Turkey, Jordan and Israel. (AP Photo/Shizuo Kambayashi, Pool)TOKYO (AP) — Japan was studying the latest message purportedly from the Islamic State group, which extends the deadline for Jordan's release of an Iraqi prisoner, while officials worked feverishly Thursday to try to free a Japanese journalist held by the militants.
