Putin re­asserts sup­port for As­sad

Austin American-Statesman - - FRONT PAGE - Beng­hazi fall­out: U.s.mint tests new met­als: U.s.growth lev­els off:

The Rus­sian pres­i­dent says he op­poses mil­i­tary in­ter­ven­tion in Syria and chas­tises the U.S. for its role in top­pling Libya’s Gad­hafi, say­ing it led to the U.S. am­bas­sador’s death in Beng­hazi.

State De­part­ment prom­ises to beef up se­cu­rity for the for­eign ser­vice and urges Congress to pro­vide more money to pro­tect U.S. diplo­mats. A penny costs more than two cents and a nickel costs more than 11 cents to make and dis­trib­ute.The quandary is how to make coins more cheaply with­out spar­ing our change’s qual­ity and dura­bil­ity, or al­ter­ing its size and ap­pear­ance. The na­tion is get­ting older and is less likely than be­fore to be mar­ried, with women wait­ing longer to have chil­dren, if at all. Im­mi­gra­tion is on an up­swing but may never re­turn to the peak level it reached in the early 2000s.
