Public school teachers across the USA are threatening to boycott office-supply retailer Staples during back-to-school shopping season, saying the Massachusetts-based chain's plan to staff in-store U.S. Postal Service counters with its own store employees will replace "living-wage jobs" with lower-paying positions.The two large national unions representing nearly 5 million teachers and other school employees meet this month, when they could consider members' bids to endorse a 50-state action.
Texas police shot dead two gunmen who opened fire at a Muhammad cartoons contest near Dallas yesterday evening. The attack took place shortly before 7pm in a parking lot of an indoor arena in the suburb of Garland. The armed men drove up to the front of the building and began shooting at a security officer, striking him in the leg. Police officers who were on the scene assisting with security retaliated and shot them dead. Most of the people attending the event were still inside the arena when the violence unfolded and were unaware of what had occurred until police came into the building and advised everyone to remain indoors. The exhibit, which was organized by Pamela Geller of the "American Freedom Defense Initiative", has angered many in the local Muslim community. But Geller insisted it wasn't intentionally provocative or offensive to Islam, but rather an event to promote freedom of expression. The event also drew attention partly due to the participation of Geert Wilders, a controversial Dutch politician who is on the jihadist hit list for his harsh criticism of Islam.

North Korea's titular head of state will travel to Moscow this month instead of the country's young leader, Kim Jong Un, for ceremonies to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two in Europe. On Thursday, the Kremlin had said Un would not be attending the events in Moscow, dashing expectations for what would have been his first overseas visit since taking power in 2011 following the death of his father, Kim Jong Il. On Monday, Pyongyang's official KCNA news agency said Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, would visit Russia for the celebrations.
A whopping 96 percent of Americans say that they expect more racially-charged unrest around the country this summer, similar to the past week's violence in Baltimore. And more than half — 54 percent — believe a similar disturbance is likely in the metropolitan area closest to where they live. In a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 68 percent of adults said they believe it is "very likely" that there will be more protests and clashes around the country like those after the death of Freddie Gray, a black man who suffered a fatal spinal injury while in police custody. Another 28 percent said that they believe such unrest is "somewhat likely." The expectation of more events nationwide like those in Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, was similar among respondents regardless of race. But white respondents were slightly more likely than African-Americans to say that they expect racially-charged disturbances in the metropolitan area closest to them.
