Former Coach Gibbs Considers Name 'prideful'
Count former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs among those who has no problem with the team's name. The NFL team that Gibbs led to three Super Bowl titles in the first of two stints as coach has been heavily criticized for its nickname that's viewed as derogatory toward Native Americans. A group of U.S. senators and President Barack Obama have suggested it should be changed, which team owner Daniel Snyder vehemently refuses. Asked about the controversy before the NASCAR race at Kentucky Speedway, the Hall of Fame coach and racing team owner defended the Redskins name. ''Never once did I hear anybody ever say anything negative about the name Redskins,'' Gibbs said about his time with the team. ''It was always prideful, it was courage involved. We have a song, 'Hail to the Redskins,'' and so everything, everything, about that name has been positive for me and my past.''

For President Barack Obama, the participation of five Arab nations in airstrikes against militants in Syria marked an unexpected foreign policy victory as he plunges the U.S. deeper into a military conflict in the Middle East that he has reluctantly embraced. The U.S. announced the strikes hours before Obama arrived in New York for three days of talks with foreign leaders at the annual United Nations General Assembly. The cooperation by Arab partners provided a significant boost to Obama's efforts to build an international coalition to take on the Islamic State militants who have moved freely across the border between Iraq and Syria.

New U.S. Tax Rules Chill 'inversion' Deal-making; Shares Dive
Tough new U.S. rules on corporate "inversions" on Tuesday sent a chill through the market for the tax-avoidance deals, both pending and potential, with share prices falling sharply in nearly a dozen companies on both sides of the Atlantic. As investors sold stocks involved in inversions, in which U.S. companies escape high taxes at home by redomiciling abroad, analysts and tax lawyers were surveying the damage to deals currently in the works and the outlook for future transactions. Despite new rules that will make some inversions costlier and others more difficult to do, Burger King said it will proceed with its $11.5 billion deal with Canada's Tim Hortons, stressing that the transaction was not about tax benefits.

Clinton: Profits Won't Be Priority No. 1 In Future
In the future, corporations will care less about maximizing profits and more about employees and society, President Bill Clinton told listeners on Tuesday. Speaking at the annual Clinton Global Initiative meeting, Clinton predicted that American corporations will see a repudiation of the bottom line-focused business philosophy that now dominates. This change will happen, he said, without significant government involvement. Clinton said "I think the government can have incentives that will encourage it, but I think by and large it will happen, if it does, because of proof that markets work better that way," adding that companies will see overall greater success by taking care of their employees and doing good for more than only their shareholders.
