American presidents come and go. Prime ministers are constantly changing. Many European finance ministers are lucky if they last even a year. At G20 meetings, there is little point in striking up new friendships and allegiances. As likely as not, they won’t be there next time. Yet amid this ever-shifting international elite, there is one constant – the abiding presence of the Saudi Arabian oil minister, Ali al-Naimi. The diminutive Mr Naimi has been in the job for nearly 20 years now, and despite his age – he celebrates his 80th birthday next year – he shows few signs of leaving.

Long-Lived Rock: AC/DC Persists

In the songs of AC/DC, rock has been a noun (“Can’t Stop Rock ’n’ Roll”), an adjective (“Rock ’n’ Roll Damnation”) and a verb (“It’s a Long Way to the Top If You Wanna Rock ’n’ Roll”). It’s also been a rallying cry (“Rock ’n’ Roll Ain’t Noise Pollution”), a cause (“For Those About to Rock We Salute You”) and a gospel (“Let There Be Rock”). As AC/DC now deals with some of its biggest career challenges since forming 41 years ago in Australia, the band is putting all its faith in the R-word. “Rock or Bust,” AC/DC’s 15th studio

MOSCOW — Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke returned to the boxing ring Friday at the age of 62, defeating a fighter less than half his age in an exhibition bout. Rourke sent 29-year-old Pasadena native Elliot Seymour to the canvas twice in the second round before the referee stopped the fight. The bout at a Moscow concert hall was Rourke´s first fight in 20 years. He took a break from acting in the early 1990s, finishing a three-year pro boxing career with six wins and two draws. He hinted that the return to the ring has helped him cope with unspecified personal issues. "I´ve got

Leaving aside passages in which he quoted a Chicago pub owner and a letter from a citizen from Georgia, President Barack Obama used the first person singular—including the pronouns “I” and “me” and the adjective “my”—91 times in a speech he delivered in Chicago Tuesday to explain his unilateral action on immigration. But as often as Obama used “I,” “me” and “my” in Chicago this week, it was no match for the speech he delivered in Austin, Texas, on July 10, when he used the first person singular 199 times. In that Texas speech, however, Obama had not focused specifically

(Video) With Thanksgiving in the rear-view mirror, the White House began settling into the Christmas season on Friday, welcoming the arrival of this year´s White House Christmas tree. First lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha were on hand to receive the tree, an 18.5 foot Douglas Fir that will be displayed in the executive mansion´s Blue Room. "Are they sure they can get this in the door?" She asked several of the men who delivered the tree, who laughed. "All right, girls, what do you think?" Mrs. Obama asked her daughters, who were each walking one of the

David Richards, who’s from the capital city of Canberra, has continued the classic Christmas tradition of stringing lights, but with 1,194,380 of them in his case, setting the record for the biggest LED image display, according to Guinness World Records. “Christmas lights really get people into the festive spirit," Richards told Guinness.

Despite Aid Push, Ebola Is

KISSI TOWN, Sierra Leone — Military choppers thunder over the slums. Nearly a thousand British soldiers are on the scene, ferrying supplies and hammering together new Ebola clinics. Crates of food and medicine are flowing into the port, and planeloads of experts seem to arrive every day — Ugandan doctors, Chinese epidemiologists, Australian logisticians, even an ambulance specialist from London. But none of it was reaching Isatu Sesay, a sick teenager. She flipped on her left side, then her right, writhing on a foam mattress, moaning, grimacing, mumbling and squinching her eyes in agony as if she were being stabbed.



Where taxes hit Black Friday

Black Friday shoppers are looking forward to cheap deals on gifts this week, but sales taxes will still apply in the 47 states that levy them. Shoppers in Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Washington and Oklahoma will have at least an 8 percent sales tax added to their subtotal, depending on their locality. Although these states have high sales tax rates, they offer relatively low income tax rates. Washington and Tennessee levy no income tax. The top income tax rate in Kentucky and Louisiana is 6 percent. Arkansas has a modestly high top rate of 7 percent. Tennessee has the highest combined

CDC: 18% of all pregnancies end

Exactly 18 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion, for a total of 730,322, with most to unmarried women, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But that is good news, the agency added, because it was an "historic low." The latest figures are from 2011 and show a downward overall trend in abortions since 2002, especially among younger women. But the numbers are up among women 25 and older, with a big jump among women over 40, said CDC. What’s more, 10 women died as a result of having "legal induced abortions," said

ST. PETERSBURG — Though some summoned jurors skip out on their duties, tracking down local violators and holding them in contempt of court hasn’t been a high priority. Most residents show up to serve — even if begrudgingly. Wanda Macon, who oversees jury pools for Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Court, anticipates about 70 percent of summoned jurors showing up on their reporting date. Most who don’t are excused or call with a last-minute conflict. Potential jurors — adults in either county with a driver’s license or identification card — receive summonses four weeks before their reporting dates, and can reschedule their service

It’s not yet Christmas, but we’re already seeing miracles. And at the Internal Revenue Service, no less. After saying over and over — in press statements, in court filings, in congressional hearings — that the emails that went missing when Lois Lerner’s hard drive crashed were gone forever, up to 30,000 Lerner emails have now turned up and are on their way to Congress. But not thanks to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. To the contrary, the emails were reclaimed from disaster-recovery tapes by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax ­Administration. It’s yet another reminder of Koskinen’s failures. Remember, Koskinen was installed at

A two-year-old case involving the shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old white man by a black police officer is gaining attention on social media in the wake of this week’s protests and rioting in Ferguson, Missouri. Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old under the influence of drugs was shot and killed Oct. 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama. Despite public pressure for an indictment, a Mobile County grand jury refused to bring charges against Officer Austin, concluding that the officer acted in self-defense. The circumstances mirror those of the Aug. 9 shooting death of

Picking a new president might not be the only crucial issue before California voters at the polls in two years´ time. They could be faced with as many as four competing initiatives asking them to extend, increase or create taxes that would raise billions of dollars in new state revenues. Loose coalitions of labor unions and community groups already are researching, polling and building support to extend a temporary boost in top income tax brackets and a sales tax increase passed in 2012. Other groups are working to create grass-roots support for raising commercial property taxes. Additionally, a team led

Republicans say their long list of 2016 hopefuls is among the deepest, most diverse group in recent history without a clear frontrunner. “This is the most open field we’ve ever seen,” one GOP strategist told The Hill. That means there will be a narrow path to victory for many of the candidates, as they fight for the money, media, and voters they’ll need in the win-early-or-go-home battle royale. The Hill spoke to more than a half-dozen Republican strategists to find out where the top names currently rank. Here’s their take. THE BIG THREE -These candidates will leverage strong donor bases

We thought the world’s oldest known computer — the Antikythera Mechanism — was 2000 years old. Now we know it was antique even before it sank beneath the waves in a wrecked Roman ship. The New York Times has reported a new study of the ancient astronomical calendar/calculator shows it may date from about 200BC — some 150 years older than the ship in which it sank during a storm off an island between Greece and Crete in about 60BC. It’s a fact which further ties the amazing bronze object with some of history’s greatest minds — Greek mathematicians and astronomers like Archimedes and Hipparchus.

TAMPA — The horseshoe-shaped stretch of land that rings three sides of the Davis Islands Seaplane Basin helps buffer moored boats from the worst ravages of storms in Tampa Bay. That has made the basin a favorite mooring spot for boaters and a long-term headache for city officials who say the boats are there illegally and are blocking a seaplane landing corridor. One year after the city’s most recent effort to clear the basin, roughly 80 boats remain. That includes derelict vessels and submerged boats spotted by officers using side-scan sonar. In another effort to tackle the problem, Tampa Police

The officer returned fire, hitting the suspect. As officers approached the injured man, they noticed a possible explosive device in the van. As they dragged out the suspect they noticed he was wearing some sort of suspicious vest. Right now the bomb squad is

On Monday night, after the release of the grand jury verdict rejecting indictment of Officer Darren Wilson in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of 18-year-old black man Michael Brown, President Obama took to the microphones. “We need to recognize that this is not just an issue for Ferguson, this is an issue for America,” he said. “[T]here are still problems and communities of color aren´t just making these problems up.” Obama was wrong, at least in the case of Darren Wilson. In viewing thousands of pages of FBI interviews and grand jury testimony, it becomes eminently clear that many members of

Rape is a hideous crime. (snip)ask yourself why you haven’t heard much from the Mainstream Media about the recent arrest of 66 year-old Terrence Bean, charged with raping a 15-year old boy. The answer is because Terrence isn’t a Catholic priest. Instead, he’s the co-founder and on the board of directors of the homosexual organization ironically called the “Human Rights Campaign.” The confused souls you see who adorn their car bumpers with the yellow equal sign emblazoned on a blue sticker are flying Bean’s flag…with pride, no doubt. Bean is also a very wealthy man who gives lavishly to the Democratic Party

Throughout the day and early evening, police and in some instances National Guard units responded to Twitter posts pointing to imminent demonstrations at area Target and WalMart locations. (Snip for tweet) Law enforcement upon arrival for the most part encountered one or two of the people responsible for the Tweets.
