LOS ANGELES (AP) — Financial data and news company Bloomberg LP says it has corrected a "mistake" in its newsgathering policies and cut off its journalists' special access to client log-in activity on the company's ubiquitous trading information terminals after Goldman Sachs complained about the matter last month.
A person familiar with the matter said Friday that Goldman Sachs became concerned about outside access after a Bloomberg reporter, investigating what she...
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a surprise move Friday, federal health regulators denied a request by Endo Health Solutions to block generic versions of its painkiller Opana ER, which the company argued are more easily abused than its branded product.
Endo's Opana ER is a long-acting narcotic drug used to treat moderate and severe pain. Such medications are frequently crushed and then injected or snorted by drug abusers to achieve a euphoric effect.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — To see the world as 15-year-old Charlotte Brown does, imagine looking through a tiny straw. Strip away all color and depth perception from the pinhole view and use a right eye that can't distinguish shape from shadow.
Now run about 80 feet, counting seven steps with your left foot before planting a nearly 13-foot pole in the ground to launch your body a dozen feet into the air.
That's right. Brown is a pole vaulter. And despite...

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is giving the federal personnel director six months to submit a strategy to address gender-based pay disparities in the U.S. workforce.
Two days before Mother's Day, the White House released a presidential memorandum in which Obama says nearly two-thirds of working women are their families' breadwinners. He also characterizes gender-based pay disparities as detrimental to women, families and the economy.
A rare surplus of $113 billion in April helped slow the growth of this year's annual budget deficit and keep it on pace to be the smallest since 2008.
The Congressional Budget Office projects the deficit will be $845 billion when the budget year ends on Sept. 30. While that's better than the past four years, when the nation ran deficits in excess of $1 trillion, it would still be the fifth-largest deficit in U.S. history.
NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man who fled a day before being convicted in 1991 of killing his 2-year-old stepson has been tried and convicted again in Greece, where he is serving an 18-year sentence for the boy's death, authorities said Friday.
