Dear Helaine and Joe: - When I was 12 or 13 years old I walked into a store that sold "different" items. I saw a head figure made of wood and bought it. It is now 40 years later and I would like to find out something about this figure. Any information would be appreciated.
Last week 3.5 million Bangladeshi garment workers got their minimum pay raised to $67 a month, an 80 percent increase. It was one of the Bangladeshi government's responses to April's collapse of the Rana Plaza factory building that killed 1,100 mostly female garment workers, prompting an international uproar and leading Western retailers to improve working conditions at their supplier factories there.
When presidents give speeches, the affair is choreographed like a Broadway production. The message is not just the words of the speech, but where it is given and who happens to be the chosen audience.
12-05-13 - MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The mood wasn't exactly no worries, but officials at the airport and FedEx headquarters in Memphis sounded confident they could withstand the possible onslaught from an icy storm threatening to disrupt travel and commerce in the nation's midsection.
Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby recently became the sixth-fastest NHL player - and fastest active player - to reach 700 points. That would seem to make this an opportune time to catch up with the man considered to be the face of the league. Crosby, 26, recently sat down to discuss a wide range of topics.
12-04-13 - WASHINGTON - Although the Senate is in recess this week, Mississippi's Thad Cochran is returning to Washington for a meeting on the Farm Bill which appears on track to be one of the few legislative accomplishments in a deadlocked Congressional year.
If Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and his parade of official proclaimers truly meant everything they've always said about pursuing a nuclear program only for peaceful energy and medical research purposes, then you'd figure Tehran's elites should be bummed out by their bad timing.
If Hamid Karzai has any sense of situational awareness, and the mere fact that the Afgahn president has survived this long suggest he does, he will do everything in his power to keep the United States and its NATO allies in his country as long as possible.
China has made an ominous move in claiming sovereignty over the air, and the Obama administration has appropriately responded with B-52 bombers.
Even though it has been 50 years since his death, the faithful at Headington Parish Church in Oxford, England, are constantly reminded of the loyal, but rather quiet, parishioner who always occupied the same short pew hidden by a sanctuary pillar.
"Dallas Buyers Club" opens with the sound of huffing and puffing, which accompanies a shaky camera shot through the slats of a bull pen into the busy rodeo arena beyond.
To be fair, the document signed in Geneva is not meant to neutralize the threat posed by those who rule Iran. It is meant only to be a "confidence-building" measure, a first step toward the "comprehensive solution" that President Obama envisions.
Thanksgiving is a peculiarly American holiday that is wrapped up in legend and myth that don't bear close historical examination.
The Carterization of Barack Obama's presidency, a largely self-inflicted debacle, has overtaken America's once popular and trusted young chief executive with stunning, startling rapidity.
NAPLES, Fla. - Florida Republicans are calling for U.S. Rep. Trey Radel to resign immediately, saying his arrest on cocaine charges violated the trust of his constituents and party.
WASHINGTON - U.S. Sen. Bob Corker has taken issue with the Obama administration's contention that an interim agreement with Iran would freeze that country's nuclear program and argued the deal appears to give Iran "tacit approval" to continue enriching uranium in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions.
Last week I made one of my sons return a delightful but ridiculously expensive birthday present he got me. Not because the gift and the thought behind it weren't welcome, but because he just joined the working world, New York is an expensive city to live in, and he's got school loans. Our family will be better off once that debt is repaid.

WASHINGTON - In the 1995 movie "Canadian Bacon," the U.S. president (Alan Alda), distressed by low opinion polls, starts a war with Canada on the theory that the public rallies around war-time presidents.
You thought BSA stood for Boy Scouts of America or a brand of British motorcycle, but you were wrong. It stands for Bilateral Security Agreement and it will authorize the United States to ply the government of Afghanistan with $1.4 billion a month in aid. That's on top of the hundreds of billions we've spent there already.
More than 15 million of the babies born around the world each year come too soon, with tremendous cost in lives lost and disabled - and medical expense.
