- Turkey loses popularity in Middle East
Turkey's popularity in the Middle East has dropped sharply over the past two years, an opinion poll showed Wednesday, reflecting Ankara's sometimes controversial foreign policy strategy. The biggest decline was registered in Egypt and war-ravaged Syria, where Turkey is strongly opposed to those in power, according to the poll by an Istanbul-based think-tank. Overall, the number of people surveyed in 16 countries who had a positive view of Turkey slid to 59 percent this year from 78 percent in 2011, the Turkey Economic and Social Studies Foundation said. Turkey, a regional Sunni Muslim power, had adopted a "zero problems" policy towards its neighbours but has found itself losing influence in the wake of the Syrian civil war and the Arab Spring uprisings.
- Poll: Millennials turn on Obama, don't like Obamacare, either
The high hopes that many young Americans placed in Barack Obama now appear to be crashing down. In the past six months, President Obama’s approval rating has dipped 11 points to 41 percent among 18- to 29-year-olds, the generation known as Millennials, according to a poll released Wednesday by the Institute of Politics at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass. Along with older generations, Millennials are growing increasingly disenchanted with the way Washington is operating: Only 1 in 5 of more than 2,000 Millennials polled said they approve of the direction the country is headed, down from 1 in 4 young people surveyed in April. In perhaps the survey's most surprising finding, a near majority of Millennials – 47 percent – would support recalling the president if it were possible (it's not).
- Why $7-a-gallon milk may be on the horizon
You may not have heard about the farm bill, a sprawling piece of legislation that subsidizes much of the food consumed in this country. But if Congress doesn't get its act together and renew the legislation by the end of this year, you could start feeling the effects at the supermarket in a major way come January. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has been making the rounds to warn consumers that we are facing a dairy cliff if lawmakers don't act. Milk prices could double because of a rule that would revert the country back to a 1949 law that would force the government to buy milk products at roughly twice the going rate.
- Derailed NY train had alert mechanism, but not in driver's car: source
The engineer, William Rockefeller, 46, told authorities he became dazed and lost focus shortly before the crash as the train took a curve at three times the speed limit, investigators said. The source said Metro-North commuter railroad trains such as the one on the ill-fated Poughkeepsie-New York City run are equipped with two safety systems to alert fatigued or distracted engineers.
