Church of England Nears Vote on Female Bishops

LONDON (AP) — After decades of debate, the Church of England votes Tuesday on whether it will finally admit women to the ranks of bishops — under a compromise proposal that has angered the faithful on both sides of the argument.

A majority of the church's governing General Synod is ready to say yes, but that doesn't mean it's all wrapped up. The vote needs a two-thirds majority in order to be approved, and an unlikely coalition of advocates and opponents of female bishops may have enough strength to derail the motion. Some voices on both sides argue that the church's compromise asks them to concede too much.

What Obama Needs From Business Leaders OR What Can They Do for Obama

It's not exactly an apology tour, but the Business Relations Repair Initiative is fully underway.

Since his re-election, President Barack Obama has hosted at least a dozen CEOs at the White House and called several others to hear their ideas about reinvigorating the stagnant economy. The purpose seems obvious: After excoriating "fat-cat bankers" and overpaid CEOs during his first term, the president needs to repair relations with business leaders who collectively have far more power to lower unemployment and boost growth than he does.

Thousands of Chinese protest & smash police cars;after a traffic accident

BEIJING -- Thousands of residents protested in a southeastern Chinese city after a traffic accident, smashing police cars and overturning three police vans, police and residents said.

The reason for the protest in Fuan city in Fujian province was unclear. Police said it was instigated by “a handful of lawless people.” One resident said people became angry because police and paramedics took nearly an hour to arrive to help the injured, while a Hong Kong-based human rights group said it was to do with corruption.

China downgrades strength of domestic security honcho

BEIJING -- China confirmed on Monday that it had downgraded the position of domestic security chief as part of a move to a new and smaller top elite, an expected move that reflects fears the position had become too powerful.

The official Xinhua News Agency said in a brief announcement that Zhou Yongkang's position as head of the Political and Legal Affairs Committee, a sprawling body that oversees law-and-order policy, had been taken over by Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu.

What are you doing ,when you look beauty full?

I was recently asked by the New York Times what questions I pose when I interview job candidates. A favorite of mine is "What are you doing when you feel most beautiful?" The reporter printed it, and I received dozens of responses to the question from people around the world. Each of them moved me for their honesty; some, for their audacity. Not surprisingly, most people feel most beautiful when they are involved in an act of service, or are doing something that makes them feel generous, connected, or seen by others.
