The opposition BJP in Himachal Pradesh again stayed away from the assembly session Monday. The Bharatiya Janata Party's action of boycotting the assembly has come under scathing attack from Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh. He said the BJP members were giving more importance to Gujarat Chief Minister and the party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's Feb 16 rally in Sujanpur than the assembly session. "It's unfortunate the BJP members are giving preference to their prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's rally," the chief minister said as the house assembled for its sixth sitting.
An airport spokesman said a commercial flight bound for Washington, D.C., was diverted to Ohio on Thursday after a passenger made threatening comments on board. United Flight 3342, which departed from St. Louis, Missouri, landed in Columbus on Thursday morning.

NBC affiliate WCMH in Ohio reported that the incident delayed some other flights from landing.
After the push for trade legislation soured relations between the White House and organized labor, President Barack Obama is embarking on something of a repair mission. Within hours of business leaders joining him at a White House signing ceremony for the polarizing trade bill, Obama announced a proposed Labor Department rule that would make more workers eligible for overtime. Just like that, the tables were turned — labor praised the move and business leaders decried it. On Thursday, Obama is traveling to LaCrosse, Wisconsin, to promote the overtime plan, on a day when the Labor Department reported a solid addition of 223,000 jobs in June.

Have you ever studied an everyday object through a magnifying glass—and been amazed at what you could see? You see an object because light rays reflected from the object shine into your eye, creating an image on the retina inside your eye. Signals to your brain allow it to re-create the picture of the object. A light ray bouncing off an object usually travels in a straight line to your eye. Things change when a transparent material, such as glass or water, gets in the way. When a light ray enters and exits such a material, it changes direction, creating a sort of kink. Your brain is unaware of these kinks and expects an image created by rays that traveled in a straight line. As a result, it might reconstruct a picture that is different from the initial object.
Chancellor Angela Merkel's chief of staff asked the U.S. ambassador for a meeting Thursday to discuss the latest reports of alleged U.S. spying on Germany. It came after WikiLeaks published a list of German phone numbers on Wednesday that it claimed showed the U.S. National Security Agency eavesdropped on senior German officials beyond Merkel. Reports two years ago that the chancellor's cellphone was monitored by the NSA caused diplomatic friction between Berlin and Washington, prompting President Barack Obama to pledge he wouldn't allow America's massive communications surveillance capability to damage relations with close allies.
