SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit officials and labor union leaders announced a new deal early Saturday, saying the final issue in their ongoing dispute has been resolved. The transit system and its two largest unions have been involved in months-long negotiations that stalled over paid medical leave time for employees. The two sides approved a deal in October after six months of negotiations and two strikes, but the medical leave issue was unresolved. The terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is making an aggressive push, both publicly and privately, to help US weapons manufacturers sell more arms overseas, including lobbying foreign leaders to purchase warships, aircraft, and missiles and relaxing some controls on the transfer of military components, according to administration and industry officials. Since 2009, when President Obama took office, the United States has led a surge in global arms deals, accounting for nearly a third of the total of roughly $30 billion in international weapons transfers completed in 2012, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Beneath the shimmering hotel tower inspired by the shape of quartz crystals, past Michael Jordan’s steakhouse, the Tiffany jeweler and the beckoning slot machines that churn dollars by the millions, all day, every day, the chief executive of Mohegan Sun is at work in what ought to be a closet. The homely space may be the worst executive office anywhere in the money-soaked gambling industry. From this office, Mitchell Etess is overseeing Mohegan’s Revere casino bid, an eleventh-hour entrant into the competitive Boston-area casino license sweepstakes. He faces a year-end deadline to complete a colossal task: submit plans to replicate in Revere the experience of visiting Mohegan Sun, a place that cannot be replicated.
WASHINGTON — A White House review of US surveillance programs has given Congress some temporary political cover after lawmakers failed this year to overhaul spy operations, and could break the legislative snarl that followed months of global outrage over privacy intrusions. Since last summer, a deeply divided Congress has tussled over competing plans to protect Americans’ privacy rights by limiting National Security Agency powers to track terrorists. But a presidential advisory panel’s 46 tough recommendations, released last week by the White House, offer a way ahead for lawmakers who face the voters next fall. They can point to the suggestions to save face politically with security-minded constituents if surveillance is scaled back aggressively.
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Owners of the 1970s-era gas guzzling trucks and sedans that have long reigned over Caracas' smog-filled roadways will soon have to pay a bit more to keep flaunting their energy-inefficient monsters.
