    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is seeking to deepen ties with Iran, with discussions on holding joint military exercises and obtaining uranium, according to Bush administration officials. Hamas also is talking to Caracas about sending representatives to Venezuela to raise money for the militant group's newly elected Palestinian government.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Amid nippy autumn air and a gathering of Halloween ghosts and goblins, most of the nation is preparing to set clocks back an hour with the return of standard time. The clocks change officially at 2 a.m. Sunday, but most people will do it before going to bed Saturday night. That shifts an hour of light from evening to morning as trick-or-treaters make their rounds Sunday night. Daylight-saving time returns the first Sunday in April 2005.
