A dozen long years ago, kicking off in the city of Doha in Qatar, negotiations began to further liberalize trade rules. On Monday or even as early as Sunday, the World Trade Organization could announce a Doha deal, but the agenda isn't as ambitious as it was in the beginning. The transition to college is tough for any student, but especially for veterans going to college on the post-9/11 G-I Bill. A new report today has some recommendations to ease the transition. And, seven new buildings are going up in New York City's Midtown Manhattan. They are all luxury towers, many just couple of blocks from Central Park. That has some residents concerned about what the buildings will do to open space and light in the park.
