  • Italy Finances
    Italian Finance Minister Pier Carlo Padoan attends a Parliament session in Rome, Thursday, April 17, 2014. Italy has again pushed back its balanced-budget goal, now aiming for 2016. Finance Minister Pier Carlo Padoan wrote to the European Commission this week, saying due to Italy's stubborn economic crisis, it is now aiming for a balanced structural budget in 2016. In 2011, then-Premier Silvio Berlusconi had promised that Italy would balance its budget by 2013. But with the country mired in recession, in 2012, during economist Mario Monti's government , the date was rolled back to 2015. The Senate Thursday approved the 2016 target. Padoan cited Italy's decision to accelerate payment of the remaining amount of public debt arrears as a key factor in the pushback. Many private businesses had said they risked failure if the government didn't pay what it owed them for services and goods.

With the crisis in Ukraine escalating by the day, the prospect of holding the Winter Olympics in the former Soviet republic seems hard to imagine. Yet, the western Ukrainian city of Lviv hasn’t given up on its bid for the 2022 Games. Lviv remains among the five contenders in what is turning into a very unstable race, vying with Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Krakow, Poland; and Oslo.

  • Boston Marathon Political Response
    FILE - This April 15, 2013 file photo shows medical workers aid injured people following an explosion at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon in Boston. In the days after the Boston Marathon bombing, the nation’s political leaders pledged resources and support for a city grappling with the first terrorist attack on American soil since Sept. 11, 2001. But nearly a year after homemade bombs ripped through the marathon's finish line, there is little evidence of any lasting impact on the political world. Federal funding that helps cities prepare for terrorism may be cut. And state and federal officials have enacted virtually no policy changes in response to the attack, a dramatic departure from previous acts of terrorism that prompted a wave of government action.
