Facing an investigation in 2010, the Web behemoth turned to an unlikely ally for help.
Battling America’s other PTSD crisis
The fight that started Keith Davis on a path to a new life began when he was buying marijuana. It was early afternoon on Aug. 8. As he tells it, he was in at his usual hangout in North Central Philadelphia, in front of an abandoned church at 18th and Ridge. He was taking too long mulling over his purchase, and another man got impatient and told him to go buy his stuff somewhere else.
Harrison Ford survives crash-landing on golf course
LOS ANGELES (AP) — When a man battles Darth Vader, Nazis and other evil-doers for work, what does he do for fun? Harrison Ford's answer is found in a pilot's license and the freedom to take to the skies at will.
With a nod and a wink, Republicans build 2016 campaign machines
By Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) - Asked last week about his agenda if elected, presumptive Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker began: "Should I choose to be a candidate..." Then he added with a grin: "My lawyers love it when I say that." Like the other would-be Republican candidates who took the stage over three days in Washington at the Conservative Political Action Conference, the Wisconsin governor studiously avoided mentioning any plans for the 2016 presidential election. The pantomime is crucial – it allows candidates to work closely with their funding organizations to rake in big money donations without breaking campaign finance laws. Once they launch their campaign or even say they are “testing the waters", they face far tighter restrictions on their fundraising.
Winter storm moves away, eastern U.S. to remain cold
A winter storm that dropped roughly two feet of snow (61 cm) on parts of the eastern United States is expected to move out to sea on Friday but the cold will remain. The National Weather Service warned of flooding and told commuters from the lower Mississippi valley to the mid-Atlantic to be wary of dangerous road conditions created by the snow, ice and slush. "Arctic air settling in behind the boundary will make for a chilly end to the work week," the National Weather Service said. In Kentucky, where cities were buried under as many as 23 inches (58 cm) of snow, Governor Steve Beshear declared a state of emergency on Thursday as traffic halted on interstate highways and motorists were left stranded.
Wisconsin Assembly slogs through debate on right-to-work bill; unions cry foul
By Brendan O'Brien MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - Weary Wisconsin lawmakers debated into the early hours of Friday a measure supported by Republican Governor Scott Walker that would stop private-sector workers from having to join a union or pay dues as a condition of employment. Opponents call the draft law a thinly disguised assault on organized labor that will drive down wages, and security staff had to clear the Assembly gallery on Thursday after protesters temporarily halted the debate with chants. Wisconsin would be the 25th state to enact such a law and Walker's history of pushing back against union rights has bolstered his credentials as an early favorite in the battle for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential election. "This is about freedom ... it's time for right-to-work in Wisconsin," said Republican Representative Dean Knudson.
