  • Oklahoma Bombing Video
    CORRECTS TO A 1997 FILE PHOTO FROM 1987 - FILE - In this 1997 file photo, Kenneth Trentadue, shown in the poster hanging in the office of Oklahoma City lawyer Scott Adams, is pictured in Oklahoma City. Prison officials maintain that Trentadue committed suicide by hanging himself. Trentadue's family and Adams claim that the bruises covering his body are inconsistent with that type of death. Starting Monday, July 28, 2014, in a federal court trial in Salt Lake City, the FBI will have to persuade a judge they’ve really done everything possible to find video tapes of Timothy McVeigh minutes before he parked a truck outside the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995 and detonated a bomb that killed 168 people. The trial is the culmination of a nearly two-decade long quest by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue to explain his brother’s mysterious jail cell death 19 years ago in Oklahoma.

If you have health insurance on your job, you probably don't give much thought to each year's renewal. But make the same assumption in one of the new health law plans, and it could lead to costly surprises. Insurance exchange customers who opt for convenience by automatically renewing their coverage for 2015 are likely to receive dated and inaccurate financial aid amounts from the government, say industry officials, advocates and other experts.

Minutes after Perdue won his Republican Senate primary in Georgia, a grainy image of his Democratic rival Michelle Nunn was on Atlanta TV as a faceless voice slammed her as a rubber stamp for President Barack Obama. In turn, Democrats portray Perdue as a greedy executive who laid off workers. It’s all a clear indicator of what the next three months hold for a first-time Democratic candidate who may be the party's only hope for picking off a GOP-held Senate seat in November.

Before it started building, the nuclear industry promised its new generation of plants would be constructed using giant Lego-like modules that make building faster, cheaper and produce a higher-quality result. Instead, the Louisiana factory building these modules has failed to master quality control rules, stick to schedule or replicate the approved designs, adding time and significant cost to first-of-their-kind projects.

  • Obama
    President Barack Obama pauses as he speaks about the economy at the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College in Los Angeles, Thursday, July 24, 2014, on the final day of his three-day West Coast trip. Striking a populist stand ahead of the midterm elections, Obama is demanding "economic patriotism" from American corporations that seek overseas mergers to avoid U.S. taxes. Obama and congressional Democrats are pushing to severely limit such deals, a move resisted by Republicans who argue the entire corporate tax code needs an overhaul.

    Smoke from an Israeli strike rises in the air over Gaza City, Saturday, July 26, 2014. Israel-Hamas fighting looked headed for escalation after U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry failed Friday to broker a weeklong truce as a first step toward a broader deal. Hours after the U.S.-led efforts stalled, the two sides agreed to a 12-hour humanitarian cease-fire to begin Saturday. However, the temporary lull was unlikely to change the trajectory of the current hostilities amid ominous signs that the Gaza war is spilling over into the West Bank.
