Deval Patrick Aims To Unseat Fellow Governor Paul LePage
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) campaigned on Monday for Rep. Mike Michaud (D-Maine), who is running to unseat Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R). Patrick, who attended a fundraising luncheon along with Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin (D), criticized LePage's decision to skip conferences with his fellow New England governors focusing on regional issues. "It may surprise the governor, and surprise you, that we don't sit around the table spouting partisan slogans," Patrick said Monday. "We're about problem solving." Patrick, who chose not to run for a third term as governor this year, is often mentioned as a potential Democratic presidential candidate. Though he has denied he's interested in a 2016 run, he has left the door open for a future bid. Shumlin is running for a third term in Vermont. As for LePage, his tenure as governor has been controversial. Among other things, he has been accused of (and denied) discussing the idea of hanging Democratic leaders and has proposed that a state ethics... - Designing Your World

South Korea police: body belongs to fugitive ferry businessman
South Korean police said on Tuesday that a body found last month in the south of the country was that of a fugitive businessman who headed the family that owned the operator of a ferry that capsized in April, killing more than 300 people. Police said a badly decomposed body found on June 12 had been identified by DNA evidence as well as fingerprints as that of Yoo Byung-un, the subject of the country's largest manhunt. Yoo was accused of embezzlement, negligence and tax evasion. Woo Hyung-ho, police chief in Suncheon, told a news conference in the small southern city that a book written by Yoo was found at the site as well as an empty bottle of a shark liver oil product made by a Yoo family company. - Designing Your World

Obama's Immigration Dilemma -
Obama's Immigration Dilemma
President Obama faces a dilemma on immigration reform, and it goes beyond the current problem of children at the border. If he sticks to his announced timetable, Obama will act in some way on immigration reform in the next month or so. The Republican House has already signaled that it not only won't vote on the bipartisan plan passed by the Senate last year, but also that it won't hold any votes on immigration reform at all in the foreseeable future (before the midterm election, in other words). This means if anything is going to happen, Obama will have to make it happen on his own. Obama's real dilemma is that no matter what he does, it's not going to satisfy everyone. In fact, it may not satisfy much of anyone. But it is sure to annoy and even enrage certain groups. No matter what Obama does, if he acts in any meaningful way at all he's going to enrage Republicans -- both the politicians and their base voters. It's a pretty safe bet that the word "amnesty" will figure prominently in... - Designing Your World

Israel keeps up Gaza assaults, Kerry presses for truce
By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Allyn Fisher-Ilan GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel kept up its assaults in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, killing a Palestinian man in an air strike, as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in the region with a mission to seek a ceasefire in the 14-day-old conflict "as soon as possible." The death of a man in the town of Khan Younis raised the Palestinian toll to 537 killed, including nearly 100 children and many other civilians, Gaza health officials said. Israel's losses totalled 25 soldiers in ground battles with militants, plus two civilians killed by rocket fire. Israel said a Palestinian shot at a car and seriously wounded an Israeli in the Nablus area on Tuesday. Kerry arrived in Cairo on Monday and, during talks with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, said the United States would provide $47 million in humanitarian aid for Gaza. - Designing Your World

Bodies leave Ukraine war zone, truce called at MH17 crash site
A train carrying the remains of 280 people killed in the Malaysian plane disaster was finally allowed to leave a rebel-held region in eastern Ukraine as the militants declared a truce Tuesday around the crash site. Five days after Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was allegedly shot out of the sky, pro-Russian separatists conceded to a furious international clamour for the bodies and the plane's black boxes to be handed over to investigators. The devices, which record cockpit activity and flight data, were handed to Malaysian officials by the prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, Alexander Borodai, in front of scores of journalists. The rebel concessions came after US President Barack Obama insisted that Moscow force the insurgents it is accused of backing to cooperate with an international probe into the disaster, saying chaos at the impact site was an "insult" to families of the victims. - Designing Your World

Chokehold Death Puts New York's Controversial Police Chief Back In The Spotlight
NEW YORK -- On a freezing day this past winter, a small group of protesters gathered outside police headquarters in downtown Manhattan. They were barely noticed by the throngs of reporters who streamed through the doors of 1 Police Plaza to watch a celebrated cop be sworn in for his second turn at the helm of America's largest police force. Calling themselves "New Yorkers Against Bratton," the protesters warned that the new chief, William J. Bratton, wouldn't mend the New York City Police Department's troubled relationship with people of color. Some had lost family members to police violence, and they had not forgotten who led the force when cops gunned down 13-year-old Nicholas Heyward Jr. in a housing project in 1994, when they strangled 29-year-old Anthony Baez in a scuffle after a football hit a police car the same year, when they filled Anthony Rosario and his cousin with bullets as -- according to one investigation -- the two men lay facedown on the floor of a Bronx apartment in... - Designing Your World
