- Obama's overtime pay push seen reshaping U.S. payrolls, courts
If the Obama administration follows through on overtime pay reforms, businesses will have to realign payroll policies for millions of salaried workers and a flurry of lawsuits could follow asking courts to clarify the new standards. Legal battles over overtime pay are already common. Workers often sue for unpaid wages, claiming they were misclassified as managers, who generally are ineligible for overtime pay, even though they spend most of their time handling the same tasks as overtime-eligible hourly workers. If, as some expect, the U.S. Labor Department reverts to a classification test it used before 2004, it would likely make more workers overtime-eligible, and a new round of litigation could result as companies sort out employee reclassifications.
- Former NATO commander says US is getting Ukraine about right
Adm. James Stavridis, who left his post as the first Navy man to command NATO last year and is now the dean of Tufts University's Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, thinks the Obama administration has gotten things about right in its response to Russia's military incursion into Ukraine's Crimea region. But in a brief interview yesterday, he stressed reducing international military tension over Ukraine while trying to find ways to isolate Russia over its current course. Earlier this month, Stavridis wrote a short piece for Foreign Policy with a list of suggestions for the US and NATO. He stressed the need for increased electronic and satellite surveillance of the area, information-sharing with the Ukrainian military, contingency planning for a possible full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, and moving NATO forces into the Black Sea, among other things.

- A Curved iPhone 6? Here's What It Could Look Like
By now many have heard rumors that the iPhone 6 will sport a strong sapphire crystal screen, but could it be curved, too? In a new concept video, a device that looks very much like what could be Apple's next flagship features a larger 4.5-inch display that's curved towards the edges. Such a design may allow Apple to more easily squeeze a bigger LCD into a space with little to no bezel around it.
- Lindsay Lohan Left a Handwritten List of Her Celebrity Conquests in a Hotel Bar
Today in celebrity gossip: Somebody found a purported list of Lindsay Lohan's famous hookups, Taylor Swift does not approve of Selena Gomez rekindling things with Justin Bieber, and Shailene Woodley continues to be terrific. In a slip-up that reflects either Lindsay Lohan's unapologetic trashiness or her straight-up awesomeness, it appears the beleaguered starlet accidentally left a handwritten list of all her Hollywood conquests in a hotel bar! Fortunately a "source" retrieved it and reported back to InTouch: Some are obvious (Wilmer Valderrama, Colin Farrell, Adam Levine) while others are eyebrow-raising (Joaquin Phoenix, Heath Ledger, James Franco) and others are just, uh, enviable (Nico Tortorella, Evan Peters, Jamie Dornan, Zac Efron, Garrett Hedlund).
