Obama caps summit in home state

Police move in on park

KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) — President Barack Obama on Sunday tied the hopes of a faster American economic recovery to the booming Pacific Rim region, saying “we’re not going to be able to put our folks back to work” unless the Asia-Pacific region is successful as an engine for the world. “We consider it a top priority,” Obama said of the region where his administration is pouring in time and political capital to expand exports and business ties. The president spoke as he dove into a day of summit diplomacy, proudly using

his home state of Hawaii as the American foothold to the Pacific. The meeting brought together leaders of 21 nations of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, whose members span from Chile to China and account for roughly half the world’s trade and economic output. In the midst of a tough re-election bid, Obama kept his message on jobs, even as he privately lobbied for help on containing the Iranian nuclear threat. He was to cap the summit with a solo

Libyan militias clash near base

In a tense escalation of the Occupy Portland protest, police in riot gear Sunday surrounded demonstrators in a downtown park area after hundreds of people defied the mayor’s order to leave the park by midnight. By early afternoon, officers had mostly surrounded the camp where the protesters were holding a “general assembly” meeting to discuss their next moves following the eviction order.

Flooding damages Thailand capital Water fowl, monitor lizards and stray dogs have replaced the throngs of tourists at one of Thailand’s greatest historical sites. Record flooding has turned Ayutthaya’s ancient temples into islands, and a giant statue of the reclining Buddha appears to float miraculously on the lapping water. Experts fear that at least half of the more than 200 waterlogged monasteries, fortresses and other monuments in the one-time royal capital have been damaged. “Imagine a thousand tons of brick and stone resting on soft foundations, with no modernstyle pilings. We are very worried,” said Chaiyanand Busayarat, director of the Ayutthaya Historic Park.

WARSHEFANA, Libya (AP) — Rival militias clashed on the outskirts of the Libyan capital for a fourth day Sunday in the deadliest and most sustained violence since the capture and killing of Moammar Gadhafi last month. Fighters attacked each other with rockets, mortars and machine guns, witnesses said. The fighting, which has killed at least 13 people since late last week, raised new concerns about the ability of Libya’s transitional government to disarm thousands of gunmen and restore order after an eight-month civil war. Libya’s interim leader, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, said his National Transitional Council brought together elders from the feuding areas — the coastal city of Zawiya and the nearby tribal lands of Warshefana — over the weekend and that the dispute has been resolved. “I want to assure the Libyan people that everything is under control,” he said Sunday. However, as he spoke, fighting continued. Heavy gunfire and explosions of rocket-propelled grenades were heard over hours Sunday in the area between the Warshefana lands, about 18 miles (30 kilometers) west of Tripoli, and Zawiya, another 10 miles (15 kilometers) to the west. White smoke rose into the air. At one point, the two sides were battling for control of a major military camp of the ousted regime, said a fighter from Tripoli. The camp, once a base of elite forces commanded by one of Gadhafi’s sons, Khamis, is located on a highway midway between Tripoli and Zawiya. In all, at least 13 people were killed in the fighting, including four from Zawiya • See LIBYAN on Page 2

ident of the United States (Barack Obama) and the speaker of the House (John Boehner) would have gotten it done themselves,” Hensarling said. The supercommittee has until Nov. 23 to agree on how to reduce the deficit by at least $1.2 trillion in the next decade. Any amount less than that would be made up in automatic across-the-board cuts divided evenly between defense and domestic programs. The panel has been stymied for weeks over taxes. Democrats want to raise revenue by making tax code changes that directly add money to government coffers.

We haven’t given up hope, but if this were easy, the president of the United States and the speaker of the House would have gotten it done themselves. — Jeb Hensarling

Republicans have agreed to increase government revenue, but are demanding large cuts to benefit programs, which they say are bleeding Americans dry. Both sides have blamed the other for failing to move forward. Last week, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that

Obama has told panel members that their finished product must contain both sources of new revenue, or taxes, as well as spending cuts. Hensarling offered no new talking points Sunday, indicating that

with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper after a joint meeting of those two leaders and Mexican President Felipe Calderon had to be canceled because of a helicopter crash that killed Mexico’s top cabinet secretary. Handlers for Obama and Harper tried to make the most of the moment for the cameras, staging not one but two photo ops of Obama and Harper, first laughing while seated at a patio table, then strolling with their suit coats slung over their shoulders. On Saturday, largely a day of sideline meetings here, Obama prodded the skeptical leaders of Russia and China for support in dialing back Iran’s nuclear ambitions, but without winning endorsement from either man. Neither Russian President Dmitry Medvedev nor Chinese President Hu Jintao publicly echoed Obama’s push for solidarity over Iran. Obama did announce the broad outlines of an agreement to create a trans-Pacific trade zone encompassing the United States and eight other nations before going into meetings with Hu and Medvedev where he raised a new report from the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency. The report asserted in the strongest

More than 100 people from Warshefana were wounded since Saturday, said Dr. Mohammed Sawan, adding that casualties stemmed from gunshots as well as shrapnel from rockets and mortar shells. On Sunday evening, a Warshefana field commander, Ashraf Borwais, deliv-

ered a severely burned fighter to the local hospital. He said the man was wounded when his vehicle was struck by artillery and exploded. Borwais said fighting had stopped in the evening. “The dogs have retreated,” he said, referring to the Zawiya militiamen. Zawiya fighters, meanwhile, manned roadblocks on the outskirts of their city at intervals of about 200 yards (meters). Groups of jumpy armed men, some brandishing RPGs, crowded

GOP contenders argue on Afghanistan, Iran, torture SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — Republicans vying to challenge President Barack Obama for his job tangled over waterboarding, Iran and what to do about the decade-long war in Afghanistan. One thing they all agreed on is that Obama needs to go. Herman Cain and Rep. Michele Bachmann both said in Saturday’s GOP primary debate on foreign policy that they would reinstate waterboarding, an interrogation technique designed to simulate drowning and widely considered torture. Cain said he would leave it up to military leaders, not their civilian superiors, to decide what forms of interrogation amount to torture, which he said he opposes. As for the war in Afghanistan, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas both said it was time for

U.S. troops to come home. While the Republicans were talking about foreign policy, Obama was on the world stage as America’s diplomat in chief. After meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Hawaii, he said the two men intend to “shape a common response” to new allegations that Iran has been covertly trying to build a nuclear bomb. The issue is fraught because the regime in Tehran is harshly anti-Israel, a nation the United States has pledged to defend. If the presidential trip gave the Republicans pause, they didn’t show it in their 90-minute debate. “There are a number of ways to be smart about Iran, and a few ways to be stupid. The administration skipped all the ways to be smart,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

around the checkpoints. Fighters searched trunks of cars and checked IDs. The reason for the initial clash remains unclear, though accusations have been flying, including that some of the Warshefana had links to the old regime. At one point last week, fighters from Zawiya entered Warshefana and seized weapons. In retaliation, Warshefana fighters set up random checkpoints and fired at the main highway.

the two sides remain far from reaching consensus. “We want more revenues. We just want to raise it by growing the economy,” he said. Likewise, Democratic panel member Rep. James Clyburn offered no hint that a real compromise was in the works. “We’ve got 10 days to do this, and I really believe that all of the ingredients for a good resolution are there. We just need to build the will,” said Clyburn, DS.C. At the same time, Clyburn accused Republicans of wanting to cut a billionaire’s tax bill by $300,000 while eliminating Medicare for people on a fixed income. “That is just not fair,” he said. Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey, a Republican member of the committee, defended his latest proposal as one that would get the economy moving again. Toomey and other Republicans want to generate at least $250 billion in new revenue by limiting tax deductions but only if Democrats agree to drop the top tax rate from 35 percent to 28 percent. “You absolutely can do this in a way that will be pro-growth, that will generate more revenue, (and) that would avoid this huge tax increase that’s coming otherwise,” Toomey said. Democrats have rejected the idea as something that will ultimately cost more than it would save, and called for a mix of $1 trillion in spending cuts and $1 trillion in higher tax revenue over the next decade. Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, a Democrat who supports entitlement and tax reform, suggested that politics was the biggest culprit in preventing a deal. “You’ll know this supercommittee is getting close when folks on both ends of the political extreme scream the loudest, because that will show that there’s actually movement being made,” he said.

EDITORIAL ROUNDUP The Asahi Shimbun, Tokyo, on world population growth: Sakyo Komatsu, a Japanese writer who recently died, wrote a short story titled “Gogo no burijji (Playing bridge in the afternoon)” about a global food crisis. The story is set in a future world where most species of animals have become extinct as an exploding global population has led to explosive growth in meat consumption. As a result, people around the world have to live mostly on artificial foods. The world’s population recently hit 7 billion. Five decades ago, the number of people living on this planet was slightly over 3 billion. It more than doubled in just a half century. Warnings about a food crisis due to the population explosion have been issued many times. But humankind has so far managed to prevent a global food crisis through species improvement and output expansion. While obesity is spreading in industrial nations where food is abundantly available, eastern parts of Africa are suffering from famine.

The episode was somehow symbolic of the absence of political leadership at the helm of the eurozone’s third largest economy as it heads, apparently helplessly, toward calamitous shipwreck. Among other eurozone leaders, there is a widespread assumption, shared to some extent by the financial markets, that Berlusconi is the very personification of the Italian problem — that the sooner he is gone, the sooner the necessary fiscal and structural reform can be delivered, and the threat of Italian default removed. Unfortunately, this is wishful thinking. Berlusconi, who over the years has survived almost as many coups as he has had mistresses, will stand down shortly. The scale of the economic challenge facing his country, and the pressure applied by a Franco-German axis that is fast taking control of the eurozone’s democracies, has finally dislodged his grip on the Italian political system. Yet while Berlusconi may preside over an economy that is essentially corrupt, it is not clear that his removal will bring anything more than short-term relief. There is no reason to believe that whoever succeeds him will be any more capable of delivering the demanded reforms. For all its faults, Berlusconi’s government has been among the more stable postwar Italian administrations. It has also been philosophically in favor of free-market reform. His fall is likely to mean a return to the political turbulence of the past. It is certainly possible for economies to regain competitiveness through the painful corrective measures the eurozone prescribes — wage and spending cuts included — but the political and social damage of such an adjustment is going to be extreme.

Don’t fear identity theft ... fear identity heft At last count, my list of passwords for access into various programs ran to three pages. Single spaced. We wasted decades fearing the Russians were going to overrun us. Now it turns out all this time we should have been afraid of Bill Gates. In the early days, it was easy. You needed a simple password to look at your email. Once that password was typed in, the innocent, willing world of the Internet was at your feet. There were no hackers, no phishers, no evil personages trying to steal your identity. Then “for our convenience” it became possible to do business online. Stepped-up security was necessary and thus was born the issue of trying to remember The Password For All Seasons. It was too good to last. Computer experts began to warn us not to use passwords that were easy to guess or too simple or, for heaven’s sake, the same one for every application. We’re not supposed to use our birth date or our street address or any other number too closely associated with our lives. Above all, we’re not supposed to write these passwords down. Who do they think they’re kidding? There isn’t

Marla Boone Troy Daily News Columnist a normal adult around (and by normal adult I mean one who doesn’t make a living giving seminars on improving memory skills) who doesn’t harbor a secret cheat sheet filled to the edges with notations like “ 57 Chevy” and “Teacher 1.” And now it’s nearly impossible to get by with just simple numerals. Most places require some incredibly complex combination of letters and numbers and upper case and lower case with the threat of the dreaded “access denied” when we fail to remember it all in three tries or less. One of the few places left where I can use a four digit access code is for my gasoline rewards card ... the one that gives me a free beverage for every $90 worth of gas I

buy. Apparently even computer hackers have standards and they draw the line at violating my records for a 12-ounce cappuccino. “Access denied” is a whole other can of words, as it were. If you fail to input your password correctly, you are challenged to answer security questions. They’re secure, all right. We tried to pay off the loan on Steve’s truck last week. Naturally, we could not remember the password to the account even though we successfully entered the ninezillion-character VIN, which serves as the account number. He has, of course, only one maternal grandmother and we faithfully entered her name in answer to the prompt. This went on for several tries until the awful “access denied” was replaced by the insurmountable “account lockout.” Seems we were spelling it wrong. I recently started using a system that requires three different passwords at three separate portals for access. Three. This, you understand, is a no-hoper. I have that exact number of sisters and I can barely keep their names straight. Now I’m required to remember three unique pass-

words, IN THE CORRECT ORDER to use this system. The first password is all numbers. That is the good news. The bad news is there are 10 of them. The second password requires a seven letter word beginning with a capital letter followed by a single digit. The third password is a nine character mix of letters and numbers and sacred incantations and, for all I know, voodoo. It’s taking up way too much of my own personal memory board to deal with it. By the time I get into the system, I’ve forgotten why I wanted to go there. If hackers can get into the Pentagon database with all those professionally installed layers of security, it’s obvious us poor amateurs don’t stand a chance. We should just abandon any hope for online security right now and erect billboards offering our passwords to anyone who wants them. That’s just what I’d do if only I could remember them.

Man missing after explosion found dead Others still in hospital FAIRBORN — Authorities searched Sunday for a 75-year-old man thought missing after a house exploded in western Ohio, injuring six others, including four children, and damaging neighbors’ homes. The explosion sent debris and the victims into the yard, and a neighbor reported seeing a baby burned, bloodied and covered in glass. Fairborn Fire Marshal Carl Day said the man had been found Sunday afternoon but didn’t say whether he’d died. He was expected to release that information and other details later Sunday. The 1-year-old baby was in fair condition and a 5year-old was in good condition Sunday morning, a spokesman for Dayton Children’s Medical Center said. A third child, whose age wasn’t available, was treated and released Saturday. A 13-year-old was transferred in critical condition to Shriner’s Hospital for Children, one of about four hospitals in the country specializing in pediatric burns, said spokeswoman Louise Holker. Two men also were injured. Their conditions were not given. Work was being done on the duplex’s water line


A Fairborn firefighter carries a dog that was found in the area of a house explosion on Wayne Drive on Saturday in Fairborn. when the gas line was struck, causing the explosion, Day said. The blast was one of three in the Midwest over the weekend. Another in Benton Township in southwestern Michigan killed two people late Saturday and seriously injured another. Its cause wasn’t immediately known, but relatives say several oxygen tanks were inside. And an explosion in Chicago on Sunday morning flattened one home, scorched others and sent two people to the hospital with serious burns. Fire officials and utilities were investigating. A woman who lived about 100 yards from the Ohio home that exploded, Cybil Poole, told the Dayton Daily News that the blast

felt like a car hitting it. She said she saw the infant lying in the yard and that some of the other victims were still on fire. “It was horrible. It was like a movie scene. You see this huge fireball and you see people come out of it on fire,” she said. Another neighbor, Paula Corelli, told the newspaper that she was almost hit by a flying piece of wood from the explosion. When she saw two adults running down the sidewalk carrying three bloodied children, she offered to take them while the adults returned to the scene. “Medics told me to keep them awake because they had head injuries, so we sang to them, me and another woman,” Corelli

said. “And we didn’t let them look back. It was still on fire and there was a lot of blood.” Some of the victims were airlifted to hospitals. Windows shattered on homes on both sides of the destroyed house. Debris could be seen a block away. The gas was turned off to the house that exploded, Day said. Several others in the neighborhood were evacuated as a precaution, but some residents were allowed to return hours later. Chase Kelley, a spokeswoman for Vectren Corp., said it hasn’t been confirmed that there was a gas leak and the company would likely conduct its own investigation into the cause of the explosion.

Twitter, which in its five-year existence has reshaped how people shop, vote and start revolutions, is now changing the business of celebrity endorsements. Just as and eHarmony pair up singles for dates, a growing number of startup firms are hooking up companies with stars who get paid to praise products to their thousands sometimes millions of Twitter followers. The list of celebs and the things they hawk is

long and getting longer all the time. The endorsements range from subtle to blatant; the celeb pairings from sensible to downright odd. Singer Ray J urged his 600,000-plus Twitter followers to see the horror movie “Saw 3D.” Football star Terrell Owens gave a shout-out in front of his more than 1 million followers to a hotel chain giving away sports tickets: “Comfort Inn is hooking up 3 days of it!” Lamar Odom, L.A. Lakers forward, tweeted to his nearly 2 million followers about hip-hop artist and entrepreneur Jay-Z’s book “Decoded”: “My man Jay-Z … only rapper to rewrite history without a pen. Until now.” Of course, anything on Twitter is short-lived and reaches only a small, selfselecting audience: Research firm eMarketer estimates that only 11 percent of U.S. adult Internet users are on the microblogging site. And even though some celebs have faithful groups of followers, it can be hard to measure whether their tweets lead people to spend. Still, celeb tweets can be a way to grab a captive audience at a time when many people are skipping TV commercials with their digital video recorders. And paying a celeb to tweet is much cheaper than a traditional advertising campaign. Want a tweet from Khloe Kardashian? That will cost about $8,000,

according to prices listed by social media marketer Izea. Looking for a cheaper option? Ray J is about $2,300. Companies like Izea, and twtMob usually pair products with celebs through a combination of software algorithms and Hollywood instinct. The companies say they use many metrics to gauge the effectiveness of a paid tweet, such as the number of times it gets reposted by others.

Dan Smith, vice president of marketing for the website CampusLIVE, which helps advertisers connect with college students, hired Izea to help him get a celebrity to tweet about his company. Izea gave him a short list, which included names like “Jersey Shore” reality TV star JWOWW, comedian Michael Ian Black and rapper Bow Wow. Smith polled his interns and they picked Lindsay Lohan, the actress most famous for her run-ins with the law. According to Smith, CampusLIVE paid Lohan about $3,500 for one tweet: “These challenges college kids on * Your 1st choice for complete Home for (hash)CampusLIVE are SO Medical Equipment addicting!” The post to Lohan’s 2.6 Lift Chairs million fans drove about 1990 W.

Bishops prepare liberty fight


Hundreds of protesters and supporters gather hours before a mandate from the city to vacate the Occupy Portland Camp in Portland, Ore., Saturday.

Police move in on Portland park PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — In a tense escalation of the Occupy Portland protest, police in riot gear Sunday surrounded demonstrators in a downtown park area after hundreds of people defied the mayor’s order to leave the park by midnight. By early afternoon, officers had mostly surrounded the camp where the protesters were holding a “general assembly” meeting to discuss their next moves following the eviction order. Some officers used nightsticks to push people away from the encampment and used loudspeakers to warn that anyone who resisted risked arrest and “may also be subject to chemical agents and impact weapons.” Demonstrators chanted “we are a peaceful protest.” Police could be seen carrying at least one protester away from the park. Another man was taken away on a stretcher; he was alert and talking to paramedics, and raised a peace sign to fellow protesters, who responded with cheers. There was no immediate word on arrests. “We were talking about what we were going to do and then they just started hitting people. Seems like a waste of resources to me,” protester Mike Swain, 27, told The Associated Press. Choya Adkison, 30, said police moved in after giving demonstrators a false sense of calm. They thought they had time to rest, relax and regroup, she said

— In Salt Lake City, police arrested 19 people Saturday when protesters refused to leave a park a day after a man as found dead inside his tent at the encampment. The arrests came after police moved into the park early in the evening where protesters had been ordered to leave by the end of the day. About 150 people had been living in the camp there for weeks. — In Albany, N.Y., police arrested 24 Occupy Albany protesters after they defied an 11 p.m. curfew in a state-owned park. State police officials hauled away the protesters after warning them with mega“Camp was completely vulnerable, completely defenseless” when police moved in, she said. “I’m disappointed that they created a sense of trust by walking away and then completely trampled it.” Mayor Sam Adams had ordered the camp shut down Saturday at midnight, citing unhealthy conditions and the encampment’s attraction of drug users and thieves. The anti-Wall Street protesters and their supporters had flooded the park area even as authorities in other cities stepped up pressure against demonstrators, arresting

phones that they were breaking the law in Lafayette Park. They were charged with trespassing. — In Denver, authorities forced protesters to leave a downtown encampment and arrested four people for interfering with officers who removed illegally pitched tents, said police spokesman Sonny Jackson. — In San Francisco, violence marked the protest Saturday where police said two demonstrators attacked two police officers in separate incidents during a march. Police spokesman Carlos Manfredi said a protester slashed an officer’s hand with a pen knife while another protester shoved an officer, causing facial cuts. He said neither officer was seriously hurt, and the assailants couldn’t be located. dozens of people. At one point overnight, the Portland crowd swelled to thousands. As dawn arrived, riot police had retreated and most of the crowds had gone home, but protesters who have been at the two parks since Oct. 6 were still there. One of the organizers, Jim Oliver, said the night had been a victory for Occupy Portland. “We stood up to state power,” Oliver told the AP, standing on a corner opposite the camp. Still, the camp was a shadow of what it was before Saturday.

(AP) — The mood among many U.S. Roman Catholic bishops was captured in a recent speech by Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia. His talk, called “Catholics in the Next America,” painted a bleak picture of a nation increasingly intolerant of Christianity. “The America emerging in the next several decades is likely to be much less friendly to Christian faith than anything in our country’s past,” Chaput told students last week at Assumption College, an Augustinian school in Worcester, Massachusetts. “It’s not a question of when or if it might happen. It’s happening today.” The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops meets Monday in Baltimore for its national meeting feeling under siege: from a broader culture moving toward accepting gay marriage; a White House they often condemn as hostile to Catholic teaching; and state legislatures that church leaders say are chipping away at religious liberty. Many Catholic academics, activists and parishioners say the bishops are overreacting. John Gehring of Faith in Public Life, an advocacy network for more liberal religious voters, has argued that in a pluralistic society, government officials can choose policies that differ from church teaching without prejudice being a factor. “Some perspective is needed here,” Gehring, a Catholic, wrote on his organization’s blog. Still, the bishops see themselves as more and more on the losing side of these disagreements, and they are taking steps they hope will protect the church.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nothing about the Supreme Court — not its magnificent building atop Capitol Hill nor its very title — suggests that its word is anything other than final. Yet federal appellate judges and even state court judges sometimes find ways to insist on an outcome the Supreme Court has rejected. Just last week, the justices rebuked judges on the federal appeals court in San Francisco in the tragic case of a Los Angeles-area grandmother who was convicted of shaking her 7-week-old grandson to death. The appeals court overturned the conviction three times and twice, the justices ordered the appellate judges to try again. The third time around, the justices ended the case, pointedly upholding the conviction. “Each time, the panel persisted in its course, reinstating its judgment without seriously confronting the significance of the cases called to its attention,” the high court said in an unsigned opinion. “Its refusal to do so necessitates this court’s action today.” But the nation’s court of last resort does not always get the last word. The appeals court in Washington where four Supreme Court justices trained, the Oregon Supreme Court, and occasionally even the San Francisco-based federal appeals court given its come-uppance last week, have in recent years won battles with the justices. The lower court judges have managed to limit the rights of terrorism suspects detained at Guantanamo, uphold awards of large punitive damages against companies and rule in favor of criminal defendants, despite the Supreme Court’s disapproval. The efforts bring complaints from lawyers on the losing end of these cases and from some scholars that the judges are “thumbing their noses” at the Supreme Court, although those complaints usually are expressed in the more polite legalese of the courtroom.

3,000 Brazilian police seize Rio’s biggest slum RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — More than 3,000 police and soldiers backed by armored personnel carriers raced into Brazil’s biggest slum before dawn Sunday, quickly gaining control of a shantytown ruled for decades by a heavily armed drug gang. The takeover of the Rocinha neighborhood was the most ambitious operation yet in an effort to increase security before Rio hosts the final matches of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. Officials are counting on those events to signal Brazil’s arrival as a global economic, political and cultural power. The head of state security and chief architect of Rio’s shantytown pacification program, Jose Mariano Beltrame, called the operation a major success and a big step toward breaking drug traffickers’ hold on key parts of Rio. “We have taken over areas that for 30 or 40 years were in the hands of … a parallel power,” he said. “This is a very large area. It’s one of the biggest shantytowns in the Americas if not the world. We’re returning dignity and territory to people.” The action in Rocinha is part of a campaign to drive the drug gangs out of the city’s slums, where traffickers often ruled unchallenged. The city of Rio de Janeiro has more than 1,000 shantytowns where about onethird of its 6 million people live.

Authorities said it took just 90 minutes to seize control of Rocinha. Police simultaneously overran the neighboring Vidigal slum, also previously dominated by the Friends of Friends drug gang. Both slums sit between two of Rio’s richest neighborhoods, and Rocinha’s ramshackle homes climb a mountainside covered in Atlantic rain forest. Police methodically cleared alleys and streets on their way up steep, winding roads. Huey helicopters swarmed over the slum, crisscrossing the hill and flying low over the jungle surrounding the slum, as police hunted down suspects who might have fled into the forest. By evening, police said they made just four arrests. People peeked from their windows and stared as armored personnel carriers roared up streets. Rifle-toting officers from the BOPE police unit, made famous by two “Elite Squad” films, trained their weapons down narrow corridors. Down a side alleyway, police discovered a house they said belonged to the No. 2 gang leader, Sandro Luiz de Paula Amorim, known as “Peixe,” who was captured by police a few days earlier when they encircled Rocinha with roadblocks. In stark contrast to the impoverished shacks around it, Amorim’s three-story home was outfitted with a large whirlpool bath, swimming pool, huge

We’re working people and now they’re coming to liberate us,” a man yelled as police rolled by. Marisa Costa da Silva, 54, who runs a small candy shop at

the base of the slum, was less sure. “Lord knows if there will be war or peace, or even if things will be better if police take this slum,” she said. “We’ve heard they’ve been abusive to slum residents in other places they’ve taken. I have no idea what to expect.” Rocinha’s location has made it one of the most lucrative and largest drug distribution points in the city.

“Rocinha is one of the most strategically important points for police to control in Rio de Janeiro,” said Paulo Storani, a security consultant and former captain in the elite BOPE police unit leading the invasion. “The pacification of Rocinha means that authorities have closed a security loop around the areas that will host most of the Olympic and World Cup activities.”

Thailand flooding damages its ancient capital, Ayutthaya Historical buildings damaged AYUTTHAYA, Thailand (AP) — Water fowl, monitor lizards and stray dogs have replaced the throngs of tourists at one of Thailand’s greatest historical sites. Record flooding has turned Ayutthaya’s ancient temples into islands, and a giant statue of the reclining Buddha appears to float miraculously on the lapping water. Experts fear that at least half of the more than 200 waterlogged monasteries, fortresses and other monuments in the one-time royal capital have been damaged. “Imagine a thousand tons of brick and stone resting on soft foundations, with no modern-style pilings. We are very worried,” said Chaiyanand Busayarat, director of the

Ayutthaya Historic Park. And as flood waters recede, some experts are proposing a radical change to prevent similar disasters in the future: Turn back the clock about four centuries to emulate the city’s urban planners and engineers of that time. “We can’t prevent flooding so we have to learn to live with water again, like those who created Ayutthaya. Let’s take out the old city maps,” said Anek Sihamat, deputy director-general of the Thai government’s Fine Arts Department. He recommended digging up old canals that have been paved over for roads and curbing the urban sprawl and industrial parks that block the natural runoff of water.

Capital of a powerful state for 417 years, seat of 33 kings, Ayutthaya has been described as one of the greatest cities on water ever, with a canal network that measured more than 85 miles (140 kilometers). Built on the flood plain of central Thailand at the confluence of three rivers, it was inundated annually, but its citizens lived in stilt-raised houses and used boats for transport. Water also defended Ayutthaya, which once held as many as 1 million residents, until a brutal sacking by the Burmese in 1767 forced relocation of the capital to Bangkok, 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the south — where the same floodwaters that inundated Ayutthaya are now nearing the inner city.

Age range could be an issue for a date Dear Annie: I am a 44-year-old single guy with no kids, never married. I look younger than my age and could probably pass for 34. I recently met this beautiful girl who is a senior in college. She seemed very nice and is probably 21 or 22 years old. I thought that maybe the next time I see her, I would ask her out on a date. Is this a crazy idea? Am I way too old for this woman? If so, what would be the right age range for me? I must say again, this woman is stunning. — R.J. Dear R.J.: Yes, 22-year-olds often are stunning. That loud sigh you hear is from all the 40-yearold women who wonder why a 44year-old man isn't looking at them. But to answer your questions, anyone over 18 is fair game, although your age gap adds a certain creepiness factor. A 44-yearold man is more likely to find an appropriate mate if he looks for women over 30. If you want to ask this girl out, go right ahead, but don't lie about your age, and don't be surprised if she says no. Dear Annie: My fiance and I have been together for three years and plan to be married next year. My problem is that he still communicates with one of his ex-girlfriends. This would not be such a big deal, but she is someone with whom he has cheated in the past. I've told him that the friendship bothers me, and he says he is also friends with her husband, and that is why they keep in contact. Her husband knows nothing about his wife's previous affair with my fiance. Should I just let this friendship continue, or am I right to want it to end? Am I being careful or just insecure? — Confused Dear Confused: We understand why this particular woman would bother you. If your fiance is being honest about the nature of the relationship, his contact should be primarily through the husband, and he shouldn't mind if you are part of every conversation, email or text involving the ex. If he refuses or if you notice anything amiss, tell him the friendship is over. If he wants to cheat, he will find a way, but you don't have to make it easy for him. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "A Formerly Trusting Wife," who has been married to "Bill" for 43 years. She failed to listen to her friends who tried to warn her that Bill was having a relationship with a co-worker. I was once there, but not as the wife. I was the cheating husband. I was the one who fell from grace. I led a charmed life, graduated with honors, made the dean's list, became an Air Force officer and the president of a local civic organization and the town's Little League. I was respected at my church and often counseled young men who were about to dishonor their marriage vows. And then quite suddenly, I became a liar and a cheat. I lost my family, the respect of my children, my honor and my dignity. My pastor asked me to resign from the church, I was shunned by church members, and worst of all, I saw my son and my daughter cry over the heartache I caused. The woman who was my partner in this love affair has long since moved on to another man. I live a lonely life 100 miles away from my former family and seldom see my kids or grandchildren. I wish there were a way to restart my life. My message to Bill is to stay with your family, learn to love your wife again, make it her birthday each and every day, and your reward will be evident in the coming years. — Frank Dear Frank: Thank you for sharing your sad story. Hopefully, it will help someone else before he or she makes the same mistake. Annie's Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Cooking advice from the 1960s Dear Heloise: I am your newest fan! I am 42 and have never really cooked. My husband is an amazing housecleaner, so I don’t have to worry about that much, either. But I have recently started COOKING and was going through old cookbooks. I found two old Heloise books, “Kitchen Hints” and “All Around the House,” from the ’60s! (Heloise here: These were my mother’s books.) I received these 13 years ago from my mother-in-law when she moved from Austin, Texas, to Denver and was downsizing every-

Hints from Heloise Columnist thing. It has been such a delight to read these books for the first time. I really appreciate everything our mothers and grandmothers did with nostick cooking spray, zipper-lock bags and all the rest! I can’t

wait to devour your website as well. I have been sharing the fun tips and stories with my mother and my friends. — Melanie S. in San Antonio Melanie, thanks for being a “new” fan! My mother’s old books are a fun read, and many of the hints are still valid today. However, some of the hints may no longer work or are no longer safe. How about picking up my latest book, “Handy Household Hints From Heloise”? You should be able to find it in your local bookstore (call first), order it

online or visit to obtain a copy. — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Here are some other uses for your old baby bathtubs: * Take with you on a camping trip and use to wash dishes. * When bringing outside plants in from the cold, place them inside one. * Fill with water and use to soak your feet. * Use to soak clothes. * Use outside to bathe pets. — Heloise











HOROSCOPE Monday, Nov. 14, 2011 There are numerous ways for you to achieve success in the year ahead, but perhaps your best possibilities will come through undertakings where you are free to call all the shots yourself. Partnerships could limit your possibilities. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — The interests of your listeners should be considered before bringing up a subject that could easily bore them to death. If you want to be popular, keep conversations focused on them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If you’re smart, you’ll take care of all of your obligations first thing in the morning. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t let one small negative thought block all of your positive alternatives today. Generally speaking, there are two sides to every issue. Choose well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Unless you are completely honest about your limitations, there is a strong likelihood you will take on far more than you can handle today and end up with a total meltdown. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Don’t allow someone whose views oppose yours to coerce you into a debate today. This person wants to do so in hopes that you’ll make a fool of yourself. Don’t bite. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Early successes might spur you on, but take care not to overdo. You could run out of steam right in the middle of a huge undertaking. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Rarely do you hesitate to express your opinions, but if what you’re thinking becomes emotional, you had better keep your thoughts to yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Unless you handle commercial involvements in a sound manner today, you could quickly lose control of good business practices and get in way over your head. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Be careful not to put yourself in a position of being at the mercy of individuals who have caused you discomfort in the past. You could be asking for a repeat performance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Owing to certain responsibilities you failed to take care of when you should have, you may be faced with severe limitations today on handling a critical situation that now needs tending. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If there is someone in a social get-together with whom you have a bone to pick, keep your discomfort to yourself. Any comments you make would put a damper on the entire group. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — The only way you will achieve all of your objectives today is to roll up your sleeves and keep your nose to the grindstone.

TODAY IN HISTORY (AP) — Today is Monday, Nov. 14, the 318th day of 2011. There are 47 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 14, 1851, Herman Melville’s novel “Moby-Dick Or, The Whale” was first published in the United States. On this date: • In 1881, Charles J. Guiteau went on trial for assassinating President James A. Garfield. (Guiteau was convicted and

hanged the following year.) • In 1889, inspired by Jules Verne, New York World reporter Nellie Bly (Elizabeth Cochrane) set out to travel around the world in less than 80 days. (She made the trip in 72 days.) Jawarharlal Nehru (juh-wah-hahr-LAHL’ NAY’roo), the first prime minister of independent India, was born. • In 1910, Eugene B. Ely became the first aviator to take off from a ship as his Curtiss pusher rolled off a sloping platform on the deck of the scout

cruiser USS Birmingham off Hampton Roads, Va. • In 1922, the British Broadcasting Corporation began its domestic radio service. • In 1940, during World War II, German planes destroyed most of the English town of Coventry. • Today’s Birthdays: Former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali is 89. Actress Kathleen Hughes is 83. Former NASA astronaut Fred Haise is 78.

Audit faults Air Force’s Alaska wind turbines ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Defense Department’s attempt to go green at remote radar locations in Alaska by replacing diesel generators with wind turbines was poorly planned and delays could cost millions, according to an audit by the department’s inspector general. A test wind turbine constructed in 2008 at remote Tin City northwest of Nome was built without the benefit of a 12-month wind study. As of July it was producing “sporadic, unusable power,” according to the audit, which focuses on three projects that followed. The Air Force in 2009, flush with economic stimulus money, awarded contracts for wind turbines at three other remote Alaska locations — Cape Newenham and Cape Romanzof in southwest Alaska and Cape Lisburne in northwest Alaska — at a cost of $4.7 million each. They have not been constructed. Stimulus money was supposed to go for “shovel ready” projects and the wind turbines were not, the audit said.

The contracts were signed without data from the Tin City turbine and before adequate wind studies were performed, the audit said. They lacked documentation that they would be more cost effective than diesel power, according to the audit, and the Defense Department did not ensure that the projects were selected appropriately for stimulus funding. Auditors concluded each would rack up an estimated $1 million in cost overruns based on 2012 construction costs. The audit faults the 611th Civil Engineering Squadron based at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson in Anchorage. Elmendorf engineers told auditors that multiple turnovers in project managers and lost project files contributed to mistakes. Air Force officials elaborated on that Thursday in an e-mail response to questions. Deployments overseas affected the engineering workload of those who remained, as did unexpected turnover in project management. Alaska’s short construction sea-

son added to the challenge. “These projects are complex and challenging, both technically and in terms of aligning construction seasons and complex supplychain constraints,” said Lt. Col. Eric Hoversten, former commander 611th CES and current deputy commander 611th Air Support Group. He said the Air Force continues to learn vital lessons that will benefit future initiatives and the Alaska projects will diversify its energy portfolio to sustainable sources. “The projects still show a lifecycle cost savings — payback which will result in lower energy costs and dollar savings in the future,” he said.

The Tin City wind turbine was completed in October 2008 by the Air Force as a test to determine energy savings. Completing a wind study, the audit said, would have provided Elmendorf engineers with information necessary to determine the best location for the Tin City wind turbine. However, no wind test was done and it was built in an area with turbulent winds and produces sporadic, unusable power, engineers told auditors. Contracting personnel at Elmendorf in August 2009 awarded a $485,000 contract modification at Tin City to correct power integration issues. The Air Force installed an uninterrupted power supply system to aid in sustaining

continuous power to critical components and upgrades to the digital controls system. The Air Force said in its e-mail response the system still is not operating and continues to experience electrical problems believed to be caused by moisture in critical controls circuitry. The Air Force is working to make repairs. The three additional wind turbines were selected for Recovery Act funding in 2009. The economic stimulus money was aimed at creating new jobs, preserving existing ones and encouraging economic development. The law, auditors noted, required prudent management but included an expectation that appropriated funds would be spent quickly. The Defense Department received about $7.16 billion in stimulus money, auditors said, including $120 million directed toward military energy conservation. Most of the Air Force share for energy conservation was designated for the Alaska radar sites.

Japan’s economy rises out of earthquake slump TOKYO (AP) — Japan’s economy surged 6 percent in the latest quarter in a bounce back from the earthquake and tsunami disaster that is unlikely to be sustained amid headwinds from Europe’s debt crisis. The Cabinet Office’s real gross domestic product report Monday marks the first expansion for the world’s No. 3 economy in four quarters. The result was in line with market forecasts, including Kyodo News agency’s projection of 6.2 percent annualized growth for the JulySeptember quarter. The March 11 earthquake and tsunami killed thousands of people and wiped out large swathes of Japan’s northeastern coast. The disasters damaged many factories in the region, causing severe shortages of parts and components for manufacturers across the country, including automakers. The tsunami also crippled a nuclear power plant, adding to the difficulties faced by businesses and households. Since then, the country has steadily restored its factories, helping the econo-

my rebound despite the threats of a financial crisis in Europe, slowing global economy and a strong yen. The Cabinet Office said the annualized figure translates to GDP growth of 1.5 percent from the previous quarter. GDP is a measure of the value of all goods and services produced domestically. Consumer spending, which accounts for some 60 percent of the economy, climbed 1 percent from the previous quarter. Capital investment by companies rose 1.1 percent. Analysts, however, say that the strong third quarter numbers are unlikely to last. Credit Suisse economist Hiromichi Shirakawa said Japan had benefited from a sharp increase in exports and industrial production into the early summer. But the economy has “already lost upward momentum since August,” he said in a report last week. He expects Japan’s economy to weaken in coming months and forecasts GDP to contract in the fourth quarter.

HeALthy Is Cool! The Heart, Circulatory & Cardiovascular Systems The heart, veins and blood vessels are the main parts of the cardiovascular system. Your heart is a strong muscular pump that works day and night to send blood around your entire body. The circulatory system is a group of organs that carries nutrients, oxygen and other important materials to all the cells in your body. Your blood circulates throughout your body, like a river, through blood vessels attached to your heart. Those that carry blood away from your heart are called arteries, and the ones that carry blood back to your heart are call veins.

Your heart is divided into two halves, call chambers. The top chamber, called the atrium, collects blood from the veins. The bottom chamber, called the ventricle, pumps blood into the arteries, helping to refuel your body. When you take a deep breath, the air travels directly to your lungs. Blood is pumped from your heart to your lungs, and the oxygen (from the breath you just took) mixes with it. The blood then travels to your heart, where it is pumped back through your body, delivering oxygen and nutrients to your cells while fighting germs and removing carbon dioxide and waste.

Receives the “used” blood from your body.

Part I Sponsored by Tammy Shellhaass A.C.E. Personal Trainer & Yoga Instructor / LaBella Viagio

Each time your heart beats, it heart fills with blood. It tightens and releases, pushing the blood out. When your heart makes this movement, it’s called a contraction. Make a fist with your hand and squeeze it, release and squeeze again. This is a similar motion to the one your heart makes. Just like any other machine, the heart can become broken or need to be fixed. That’s why it’s important to know how your heart works; so you can do your part to keep it healthy and strong. Do you ever feel your heart racing or feel out of breath? This is your body signaling that it needs more oxygen. The heart pumps faster to supply your body with what it needs. Kids ages 6-15 have a normal resting heart rate of 70-100 beats per minute.

Tammy Shellhaas is a personal trainer and yoga instructor at La Bella Viaggio, Troy Q: What types of food fuel your body? A: I fuel my body with whole grains, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. I have learned that my body digests whole foods easier than processed foods, giving me the energy and endurance to train, run, and practice yoga. Q: How did running and yoga shape the person you are today? A: Running has increased my heart and lung capacity giving me the confidence to try other activities that challenge my body. Yoga has strengthened my body, while helping me to balance stresses in my life and connect with my true self as wife, mother, friend, and trainer. Q: How does your family instill health and fitness into daily life? A: When our children were in school they were involved in sports, but also enjoyed swimming, biking, etc. with friends. My husband and I walk our dogs, swim, and bike regularly. It is a great time for us to connect after a busy day. We also plan day trips and vacations that have include hiking, ziplining, swimming, and canoeing to continue trying new experiences. Q: How often do you work out each week? A: I workout daily for one hour, either running or yoga. When teaching a class, I will work out with the clients to perform the strength and cardio exercises for them and join in the fun!

Bad snap allows Rams to top Browns, 13-12 CLEVELAND (AP) — When Phil Dawson trotted onto the field, the Cleveland Browns seemed moments from victory. In a snap, they were seconds from despair. Dawson’s 22-yard field goal attempt sailed wide left following a bounced snap from Ryan Pontbriand with just over two minutes left, giving the St. Louis Rams a 13-12 win over the bungling Browns, who again failed to score a touchdown at home and couldn’t count on their steady kicker to bail them out. “You leave with a helpless feeling. It’s tough,” Browns quarterback Colt McCoy said. “We should have won more than once. You kind of scratch your head and wonder, ‘Where is all

this bad luck coming from? Why?’” Dawson made four field goals in blustery conditions, but his attempt with 2:13 remaining fluttered left of the upright, capping a series of late gaffes by the Browns (3-6), who were booed by their fans as they left the field. “That’s the maddening part,” said Dawson. “It’s not about how many you made. It’s about how many you missed.” Pontbriand, a Pro Bowler considered the NFL’s best long snapper, accidentally hiked the ball off the right foot of center Alex Mack, who AP PHOTO lines up at left guard for field-goal Cleveland’s Brad Maynard (7) reacts after kicker Phil attempts.

Green said. “They have a great defense, but we belong in that league.” The Bengals came into the game with a five-game winning streak. They were facing a defense that had only two interceptions and two fumble recoveries all season, a stunningly small statistic for a defense that prides itself on getting the ball. They got it twice when it mattered most. Rashard Mendenhall’s 9yard run put the Steelers’ up 24-17 late in the third quarter, leaving it to the defense to it

SYDNEY (AP) — From about 250 yards away, thousands of fans perched on the dunes behind the 17th hole could make out the guy in a red shirt posing over his shot, then the ball appearing on the green and racing down a ridge to 12 feet behind the pin. This is what they wanted to see Sunday at the Australian Open. Tiger Woods, gone for the most of the year and rarely on the leaderboard even when he was playing, faced an eagle putt late in the final round at The Lakes that would have given him a share of the lead. Woods missed. Moments later, three groups behind him, Greg Chalmers hit 7-iron to 18 inches on the par-3 15th for a birdie that put him back in control, and ultimately led to a one-shot victory over John Senden. With a par save

Battle for the north Gay’s late interception helps Steelers past Bengals, 24-17 CINCINNATI (AP) — Andy Dalton saw all of it coming, except for that final throw. Cornerback William Gay anticipated the rookie quarterback’s last pass and stepped in front for a game-clinching interception Sunday as the Pittsburgh Steelers held on for a 24-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, who will remember that last play for a long time. “They take chances,” Dalton said. “They bite on things and try to jump routes. On that play they did, and it worked for them.”

It was a big moment for the surprising Bengals (6-3), who had their first sellout at Paul Brown Stadium in a year albeit with thousands of Steelers fans filling out the crowd. It was a chance to see how they measure up against the AFC North’s best after half a season of playing a lot of non-division also-rans. They were right there with the defending AFC champion Steelers (7-3) until the fourth quarter, when Pittsburgh closed it out with a pair of interceptions. “We went toe-to-toe with them,” rookie receiver A.J.

Kahne bests Edwards, Stewart; wins Phoenix AVONDALE, Ariz. (AP) — While Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart have gone round-forround in their race for the Sprint Cup title, Kasey Kahne has quietly turned his performance up a notch outside of the championship spotlight. Kahne’s performance the last nine weeks has trailed only the two title contenders, and on Sunday, he finally got a win to show for his efforts. Kahne snapped an 81-race

winless streak with his victory at Phoenix International Raceway, where Edwards and Stewart finished second and third to keep the title race tight headed into next weekend’s season finale. “If I’m in a racecar, I want to do the best that I can,” Kahne said, crediting crew chief Kenny Francis for giving him strong Toyotas that have allowed him “to perform with and run with Carl and Tony, who have been

probably the two best.” They’ve been the only two drivers better than Kahne, and one of them will officially unseat five-time defending NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson next Sunday at Homestead. Edwards will take a threepoint lead over Stewart into the 36th and final race of the season, marking the closest championship battle since the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format made its debut in 2004.

The two were nearly giddy discussing the title race as they sat side-by-side in the post-race news conference. “As far as I’m concerned, it’s a dead heat going in there,” said Stewart. “I want to go to Homestead tomorrow and start. I want tomorrow to be Friday. I’m pumped up, I’m excited about it and ready to go.” So was Edwards.

■ CONTINUED FROM 18 “This is going to be a battle. I truly believe it’s going to be a good race,” Edwards said. “That place is magical for us. I really enjoy going there. I hope it comes down to the fastest guy winning the race.” Stewart, winner of four Chase races this season, dominated Sunday at Phoenix and led 160 of the 312 laps. But he had to pit for gas with 18 laps remaining, and was forced to work his way back to the front. He needed a late pass of Jeff Burton to finish third, right behind Edwards. “I wasn’t going to give him the spot. He earned it and he got it,” Burton said. It was a critical pass, as it picked up another point for Stewart and kept his deficit at three points. “We had an awesome day. We came up two spots shy. I don’t know how you could have asked for a better day,” he said. “We led the most laps, we were on the same pace we were last week, just to have a perfect day. Just fought as hard as we could all day.” Edwards did, too,

despite having to chase Stewart most of the race. He’s not faltered once with the two-time champion bearing down on him, and he’ll go to Homestead with his first Cup championship in reach. Edwards is a two-time Homestead winner and drives for Roush Fenway Racing, which has won seven of the last nine races at Homestead. Stewart, trying to become the first owner/driver since Alan Kulwicki in 1992 to win the championship, won the first two Cup races at Homestead in 1999 and 2000. “It’s the best points battle I’ve been a part of at this level, so it’s fun for me,” Edwards said. “I still don’t understand why we’re both running so good. It’s pretty neat. Seems like subconsciously we’re both able to dig down and our teams are able to give us what we need and everybody has been performing at a high level. “It’s been neat that this battle has brought out the best in us.” officially Sunday marked the end of Johnson’s reign: He finished 14th and was math-


Kasey Kahne, front, drives on the front straight after taking the checkered flag to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series auto race at Phoenix International Raceway Sunday in Avondale, Ariz. ematically eliminated from title contention. “It’s been one hell of a run,” he posted on Twitter shortly after the race. Kahne, meanwhile, won for the first time since Atlanta in 2009, and it comes in his next-tolast race with Red Bull Racing. He’s moving to Hendrick Motorsports next season, and Red Bull is pulling out of NASCAR. His win was only the second for Red Bull, came into which NASCAR in 2007 amid much fanfare but never delivered. Kahne, who won in a brand new car, said it’s a shame Red Bull is leav-

ing. “I wouldn’t say there’s anyone out there that’s building better cars at this time. The Red Bull guys are doing an awesome job and they haven’t given up,” he said. “It’s tough to hear it’s shutting down in eight days. Over the last three months, you have one of the top five cars in NASCAR shutting down and that’s crazy.” Burton finished fourth and was followed by Ryan Newman. AJ Allmendinger was sixth, and David Reutimann, told two weeks ago he was losing his job at Michael Waltrip Racing, was seventh.

■ CONTINUED FROM 18 finish it off. First, linebacker Lawrence Timmons picked off a deflected pass, ending a drive at the Pittsburgh 33. Gay pulled off the clincher, stepping in front of Jerome Simpson for an interception at the 19yard line with 2:27 left. Gay had allowed Baltimore’s Torrey Smith to get behind him for a 26yard touchdown catch with 8 seconds left in the Ravens’ 23-20 win at Pittsburgh last Sunday. It wasn’t going to happen again. Dalton handled most of what Steelers defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau threw at him until the end. He had two more touchdown passes, giving him 14 overall the most by a rookie quarterback in his first nine games since the AFLNFL merger in 1970. He wasn’t sacked even though the Steelers blitzed him every way they could. “I felt like we had a really good grasp on what they were doing,” said Dalton, who was 15 of 30 for 170 yards with two touchdowns. “Even with all the movements and shifts that they were doing, I still thought we had a good feel. They did throw some things at us, but I thought we adjusted well and handled it.”

Until the fourth quarter. Dalton didn’t have top receiver A.J. Green on the field for those pivotal moments. Green, who leads all rookie NFL receivers, jarred his right knee when he landed awkwardly on a 36-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Green returned on the next series, but was held out as a precaution after his knee tightened at halftime. “I just came down straight-legged and my knee buckled,” Green said. “At halftime when I came in and sat down, it got real stiff. I couldn’t really get any movement.” Ben Roethlisberger was 21 of 33 for 245 yards with one touchdown and a deflected interception. He was sacked five times, matching his season high. Roethlisberger found Jerricho Cotchery uncovered in the end zone for a 16-yard score that got thousands of Terrible Towels waving. It was the fifth time in the last six games that the Steelers reached the end zone on their opening possession. Mendenhall ran 2 yards for a 14-0 lead on the Steelers’ next possession. At that point, Pittsburgh had a 132-8 advantage in yards.

Cardinals shock Eagles

■ CONTINUED FROM 18 great job of placing it for Dawson. However, the 13year veteran’s timing was thrown off and Dawson missed the chip shot. “It’s on me,” Pontbriand said. “My fault. It’s my job to get the ball back there and it didn’t get there. On those plays, I’m always upside down and never see a thing. From my point of view, everything was normal. But as soon as it came out, I knew something was wrong. It looked like a snap I had never snapped before.” It was an especially painful loss for first-year Browns coach Pat Shurmur, who spent the previous two seasons as the Rams offensive coordinator. Following the game, Shurmur was noticeably upset, mostly because of his young team’s costly mistakes. “What can I say?” Shurmur said. “We were in position to win. I’m disappointed we lost. It hasn’t sunk in enough to go

through my head yet. I’ve got a thick head.” Stephen Jackson rushed for 128 yards for St. Louis (2-7), which got a TD pass from quarterback Sam Bradford and two field goals by Josh Brown. As Dawson lined up for his final kick, the Rams, who had five players sustain game-ending injuries, were already planning their strategy for a last drive. They didn’t realize they were in Cleveland, where the beleaguered Browns have a habit of horrid losses. “I thought this stuff only happened to the Rams,” Jackson joked. “I didn’t think it happened to other teams.” Brown’s 34-yard field goal gave the Rams a 13-12 lead with 7:42 remaining. That score was set up by a fumble by Browns return specialist Josh Cribbs, who was stripped trying to get extra yards on a punt return by Rams linebacker David Nixon.

Aussie Open ■ CONTINUED FROM 18 from the bunker on the final hole, Chalmers closed with a 3-under 69 to put his name on the Stonehaven Cup trophy for the second time. Woods now has gone two full years since his last win at the Australian Masters, yet he headed south to Royal Melbourne for the Presidents Cup with reason for optimism. Two bad tee shots slowed his charge, one of them a questionable decision. Yet there also was a birdie on the second-toughest hole to keep alive his hopes, a chipin for eagle on the 14th hole when nothing less would suffice, and three solid rounds that gave him his first real chance of winning in nearly a year. Woods closed with a 5under 67 and finished alone in third. It was his highest finish since a playoff loss last December to Graeme McDowell at the Chevron World Challenge, and his best result against a full field since his last win in Melbourne. “I felt great,” Woods said. “It’s nice to finally be healthy again.” He has talked about his health a lot the last year, though it cannot be written off as an excuse. Woods missed most of the summer while letting injuries to his

left leg fully heal, which made him ineligible to play once he was feeling strong. This was only his second tournament in the last three months, and he showed plenty of progress. For the first time since the Masters, when he was tied for the lead at the turn on Sunday until he stalled and tied for fourth, his name on the leaderboard meant something. “It’s been since Augusta, I had the lead at Augusta on Sunday, that’s the last time I’ve been in that spot,” Woods said. “It’s been a long time. Unfortunately I haven’t played a lot of tournaments in between. But it was great to be out there. I had a chance. Unfortunately, I didn’t post the number I wanted to post.” Chalmers kept his wits about him. He could hear the massive cheer when Woods chipped in for eagle from about 15 feet off the green, loud enough to rattle him. But he realized that he still had the short 13th the one Woods bungled and two par 5s. “I was aware of what Tiger was doing, but I was also aware that I had some birdie holes coming up,” Chalmers said. “I thought the advantage was with someone still out on the golf course.”

Kasay’s 26-yard field goal gives Saints win over Falcons PHILADELPHIA (AP) — John Skelton threw a 5yard TD pass to Early Doucet with 1:53 left to lift Arizona. Michael Vick had another so-so performance and the Eagles (3-6) blew a fourth-quarter lead for the fifth time this season. Starting for the injured Kevin Kolb, Skelton threw three touchdown passes to lead the Cardinals (3-6). Larry Fitzgerald had two TD catches and made a sensational, over-theshoulder diving catch to set up the go-ahead score. The defending NFC East champion Eagles were expected to be Super Bowl contenders after a slew of big-name acquisitions in the offseason. Instead, they’ve lost seven of their past eight home games. BRONCOS 17, CHIEFS 10 KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Tim Tebow hit Eric Decker on a 56-yard touchdown pass, one of his two completions in the game, to lift Denver. Denver (4-5) played almost the entire game without leading rushers Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno. McGahee hurt his hamstring and Moreno went down with a knee injury in the first quarter. Lance Ball ran for 96 yards and Tebow added 44 yards and a touchdown on the ground, helping the Broncos win for the third time in four games with the former Heisman Trophy winner under center. Matt Cassel was 13 of 28 for 93 yards and a touchdown for Kansas City (4-5), which followed up a 31-3 loss to previously winless Miami with another miserable showing at home. SAINTS 26, FALCONS 23 ATLANTA — John Kasay kicked a 26-yard field goal in overtime to give the New Orleans Saints a 26-23 victory over Atlanta after Falcons coach Mike Smith decided to go for it on fourth down deep in his own territory Sunday. The Falcons (5-4) rallied from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, tying it on Matt Bryant’s 27-yard field goal on the final play of regulation. In overtime, Atlanta appeared to pick up a first down on a pass to Mike Cox, but he was ruled just short after referee Terry


Arizona Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald, center, pulls in a pass as Philadelphia Eagles’ Asante Samuel, left, and Jaiquawn Jarrett defend in the second half Sunday in Philadelphia. McAuley looked at the replay. Then, stunningly, Smith decided to go for it on fourth down from his own 29. Michael Turner was stuffed, and Kasay kicked the winning field goal for the Saints (7-3). 49ERS 27, GIANTS 20 SAN FRANCISCO — Smith batted down Eli Manning’s pass in the closing seconds of a comeback try and San Francisco won its seventh straight game. Manning completed a pair of long fourth-down passes and got the Giants (6-3) down to the 10, but on fourth-and-2 with 1:51 left, Smith made a leaping right-handed smack of the ball. In a game between division leaders, the 49ers (8-1) didn’t rely on Frank Gore, whose franchise-record streak of five straight games with 100 yards rushing ended with a knee injury. BEARS 37, LIONS 13 CHICAGO — Charles Tillman and Major Wright returned interceptions for touchdowns early in the third quarter, and Chicago picked off Matthew Stafford four times. The four interceptions by Stafford matched his season total entering the game and helped knock the Lions (6-3) into a secondplace tie with Chicago in the NFC North. He was also involved in a skirmish that led to an ejection of Chicago’s D.J. Moore early

in the fourth quarter. SEAHAWKS 22, RAVENS 17 SEATTLE — Steven Hauschka matched a franchise record with five field goals, Marshawn Lynch scored on a 1-yard plunge and Seattle forced three turnovers. A week after staking claim to the lead of the AFC North with a thrilling lastsecond win at Pittsburgh, the Ravens flopped on the West Coast in an all too similar fashion to letdowns twice already this season. After routing Pittsburgh in its opener, the Ravens (63) were dominated in a loss at Tennessee. Just a few weeks ago, after an impressive win over AFC Southleading Houston, the Ravens lost to Jacksonville. JAGUARS 17, COLTS 3 INDIANAPOLIS — Blaine Gabbert threw for a touchdown and Maurice Jones-Drew ran for another score to keep Indianapolis winless. Jones-Drew carried 25 times for 114 yards and became the second player in franchise history to top 6,000 yards rushing. It was the first road win of the season for Jacksonville (36). Indianapolis remained the NFL’s last winless team, dropping to 0-10 for the first time since 1997. TEXANS 37, BUCCANEERS 9 TAMPA, Fla. — Matt Schaub threw for two long touchdowns, while Arian Foster, Ben Tate and

Derrick Ward each ran for scores to help AFC Southleading Houston. The Texans (7-3) extended their winning streak while playing without star receiver Andre Johnson to four consecutive games and head into their bye week with their best record through 10 games. TITANS 30, PANTHERS 3 CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Chris Johnson ran for a season-high 130 yards and a touchdown, and Tennessee used a stifling defense to frustrate rookie Cam Newton. The Titans (5-4) sacked Newton five times and took away Carolina’s long passing game. Carolina (2-7) came in ranked fifth in the league on offense and first in plays of 20-plus yards, but the Titans limited Newton to 209 yards passing and held Steve Smith, the NFC’s leading receiver, to 33 yards. Johnson had 174 yards from scrimmage and eclipsed 100 yards rushing for the first time since Oct. 2. Marc Mariani returned a punt 79 yards for a touchdown, and Matt Hasselbeck threw a 43-yard touchdown pass to Damian Williams. COWBOYS 44, BILLS 7 ARLINGTON, Texas — Tony Romo guided touchdown drives on his first four possessions, throwing for the score on three of them, and Terence Newman returned one of his two interceptions for a touchdown.
